Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
an architect and engineer from the Crab clan
Kaiu Nasume is an eager, intelligent engineer who has been seconded from the Crab to assist with the reconstruction of Kyuden Asako, which was partially burned during the Clan War. She spends a great deal of time closeted with Asako Nisobu and Isawa Toshiji discussing her vision for a reborn Kyuden Asako, and the rest poking around in the wreckage of the destroyed wings.
Nasume tends to avoid Yasuki Takai as much as possible, as their shared Clan is no protection from his bullying. She is often seen with Kitsuki Jakuei, engaged in agitated conversation.
