Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
a wise and gentle nun who serves the poor and sick
Mother Izoku is a nun of Shinsei who dwells in the refugee camp surrounding Kyuden Asako. She is a popular and beloved figure, as she a very knowledgeable healer and herbalist, and is adept as resolving disputes without angering either party. She also serves as a liaison between the residents of the camps and the samurai in the castle, and helps to make sure that the food and other supplies the nobles dole out are fairly distributed.
Mother Izoku wears the simple robes of a monk of Shinsei, as well as a veil which obscures her face. She speaks with an educated accent that suggests she was born a samurai before devoting herself to the Way of Shinsei.
