Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
a worldly and self-possessed woman
Isawa Tsuko is a veteran diplomat, recently returned from serving at the Imperial Court. She has a much more earthy and laid-back personality than most Phoenix, enjoying a fine smoke, a good drink, or a delicious meal with gusto. Tsuko is very personable and outgoing, always ready with a quip or tale from her years in the Imperial Court.
She is one of the candidates for the position of daimyo of Kougen Province. Tsuko has stated publicly that she is retiring from courtly life, and looks forward to the peace and quiet of the north.
