    [​IMG]History: It has been said that the Giant Warrior known as Cao Dian was born on another continent, that he was adopted by his Crab Clan parents ins ecret and hidden from the noble Samurai.
    Cao Dian himself says nothing for or against this, simply stating that his past was and is as such irelevant.
    He rose to prominence fighting demonic enemies and made a name for himself despite his low station.

    he has bought armor and weapons, training himself in the art of the glaive and the long sword in the fires of battle.

    The raider lord stepped back, the bulwark of steel that stood before him, watching as the heavily armored mans glaive swung from left to right, up and down in a dance of death, bodies littered the ground around the blue armored warrior and sweat trickled down the raider's neck as he stepped back slowly, calculating the odds of his survival.

    as the last of his warriors slumped to the dirt, blood gushing from his severed neck, the Raider leader tured to run, but felt a sharp pain lancing through his left leg, and as he fell he looked to his leg, grimacing in agonised dismay as he saw a flat steel broadsword had peirced his laquered armor on both sides, and that it bore the engraved symbol of an armored fist.

    "you steal and ransack these peopel no more" a voice behind him boomed, and the Bandit king looked up in time to see a Glaive sweeping towards his neck, he made to shout, but cold steel cut through his windpipe, and his head toppled backwards, his mind still funtioning for a few short, terrifying seconds.

    Cao Dian retreived his sword from the Bandit's leg, and wiped it on the corpses clothes before sheathing it, as he did so, one of the peasants that had stood beside him to fight off the bandits gave a cheer of triumph, and the Fist of the Peasantry let his head fall backwards and laughed.
    once again, wolves had come to find sheep and instead found sheepdogs.
  6. GAH! WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME THESE THINGS!? Give me a minute to grab Kuroma...Actually, I'm just gonna make a new character, since it doesn't seem Vay will be continuing to play my informant, and Ric has disappeared. Though it would be nice to see him continue as a semi-important NPC, considering who he is (heir to the Crane Clan, for those of you who are just joining us)

    Heanius came from the Tsuruchi family of the Mantis Clan. While not a direct descendent of the founder, he still maintains the trademark skill with a bow that his ancestors possessed, being among the elite not only in the world, but in his own clan. While not having the reflexes to perform in speed shooting, his accuracy from long distances was impressive, and the power behind each shot more so.

    While his skill with a bow was fearsome, he never took up the mantle of the samurai, finding their code to be more troublesome than it was worth, and decided instead to be a bounty hunter. Having just successfully taken down a target that took him all the way into Unicorn lands, he begins to head south back home.

    Backstory: Haruko was born into the Scorpion clan under a small family and was trained as a ninja from an early age. When she was about 15 she also began learning the arts of the geisha. The Bayushi family took an interest in her and began grooming her as an assassin that can get close to her marks. It didn't take her long to learn the subtleties of getting close to people and has become successful at her trade. In recent times the Scorpion clan has been sending her on long term spying missions. Her current goal is to glean some information the Unicorn clan.

    History: Prettz was born the son of a Mist Spirit and a mortal mother. This mother was desperate for a child to call her own, and tried with several husbands to concieve a child. Alas, this did not work. One night, she was out for a misty night stroll, and looked over a pond nearby, and began to cry. A Mist Spirit saw this, and approached the woman. She told the spirit of her plight, and the Spirit told the woman she would bless her with a child, if she would promise to take care of it at all costs as a child. She agreed, and 9 months later, Prettz was born. Prettz was born in the city of Yufuku and Heigen Toshi, the largest marketplace in the world. Hence, he learned many languages and skills, including the art of the "silver tongue". He also discovered he could change into anyone he thought about, or even what he could imagine. He met with the same Mist Spirit that birthed him and he told him of his gift: the ability to change his physical characteristics to anyone he thought of, at will. He began to use this ability to greater effect, helping those that were being terrorized by others, or set wrong from right, getting in trouble with the law numerous times. Prettz also learned the art of music and of the bard, from a wandering traveler he befriended. At around his 20th birthday, he told his mother that he had to see the world. He had yearned to travel ever since he learned how to become a bard, having heard fantastical stories of strange and wonderous lands. Reluctantly, he allowed him to leave, on the promise he would return safe to her. He embarked outwards, to wherever the wind blew him, maybe to join a group of adventurers, or to make his own way across Rokugani.

    Class Features:
    -Bonus Feat: Improved Grapple
    -Decisive Strike: As a full-round action, make one attack with an unarmed strike or a special monk weapon, using your highest base attack bonus but taking a –2 penalty on this attack roll. If the attack hits, it deals double damage (as does any other attack you make before the start of your next turn). If you use this strike to deliver a stunning attack, increase the save DC to resist the stun by 2. This is an extraordinary ability.
    -Unarmed Strike (1d6)

    -Weapon Focus (Unarmed Strike): +1 on attack rolls with unarmed strikes.
    -Earth's Embrace: While grappling, if you pin your opponent, you deal critical damage (double normal unarmed damage) each round that you maintain the pin. You hold your opponent immobile as normal, but you must also remain completely immobile, giving opponents (other than the one you're pinning) a +4 bonus on attack rolls against you (but you are not helpless)

    No Thumbs: You take a −2 penalty on all ranged attack rolls.

    Monk's Outfit (Dragon Mon)
    20ft. Rope (Used as a Belt)

    It was years ago when he found the dragon monastery. It was an interesting group of humans - all shaven bald, tattooed and all mimicking the same punching motions. He had found it terribly amusing, like a setup of birds all singing the same song... he was amused enough to stay, and keep watching. They didn't chase him away, or glare at him... or even look at him. He supposed it was because he was in his fox form, and that he was being sneaky... this was not the case. He had given away his true self immediately to the sharp-eyed monks... and so he continued to watch... for hours... days... months... all the while, he envied the one who taught them... respected and strong, with all these little humans to do what he wanted... there were no riches involved, but the young fox had assumed that meant it'd be easier to rise up in the ranks, here.

    At night, the young fox snuck into the Teacher's chambers... and, turning into his hybrid from, challenged him to a fight. It was no contest - soundly thrashed by the old monk, the young fox lay on the ground - bruised, bloodied, and expecting a final death blow... it never came.

    Bei fled, and did the same thing, every night for a week - each time, the old man easily besting him. Finally defeated, in body and in spirit, the fox offered his servitude to the man.

    Instead, the monk offered a different sort of punishment... to train at the monastery as one of his pupils. At first, the young fox laughed at it... but... slowly, he realized the strength he could gain... and accepted. It was not easy doing, as the order of the monastery rankled against his very nature... and yet... somehow, slowly... he came to enjoy it.

    Naming the fox 'Bei', the old master gave him no special treatment - he was like every other monk there... save that the teacher forbade Bei from turning human, telling him that it was dishonest. Coming to respect the old man, Bei agreed to these terms. Soon, however, wanderlust began to creep into the foxes' heart - as the old teacher reached the end of his long life. Instructing his students to go out into the world and learn, so that they might pass on his teachings, each went off in search of their destiny.

    Bei went last, caring for his mentor until the old man passed away.
