Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
a beautiful and charming noblewoman
Shiba Fumiko, formerly Bayushi Fumiko, is the new bride of Shiba Takeshi, a powerful shugenja many believe will soon be named the Elemental Master of Earth. Their marriage was one of many in the wake of the declaration of peace, and she has spent the past few weeks becoming the darling of Kyuden Asako. Fumiko has become quite famous for the style and grace she brings to the traditional tea ceremony, and it has become quite the mark of distinction at court to have shared a soothing cup with her.
Fumiko carefully avoids spending much time with Bayushi Taka or other members of the Scorpion delegation, as if she wants to make her loyalty to her husband clear.
