a gravely wise older woman
Asako Nisobu is a very learned, serious woman. She leads the Asako clan with serenity and grace, but the demands of the past few years of blood and violence have worn her down. Of late, she has been more concerned with the status of the Phoenix in the Empire at large, and leaves the day-to-day duties of the court to Isawa Toshiji, her castellan.
