Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
a mischievous monkey spirit
Sarugami is a powerful monkey-spirit from Chikushudo. He has come to Rokugan through a portal in the Isawa Mori, and has taken over a troop of monkeys that dwell in Smoking Waters. In addition to the plentiful food and warm springs, Sarugami has taken a liking to the luxury goods he found in the resort, parading around in kimonos and playing at being human.
The spirit is very protective of his troop, and retaliates against threats with escalating pranks and outright attacks, if he thinks there is little risk.
