Three Feet from Death
Lion Bard and Historian
The representative of the Lion is a short, ﬂat-faced man with large, clumsy looking hands and hair shaved and tied into a strict samurai topknot. He speaks slowly and carefully, with great dignity and weight, and always cites the examples of great samurai and famous battles to back up any assertion he might make. Katsu will oppose the Isawa peace-making efforts. However, he will do so with much greater skill than Mirumoto Rai or Shiba Reikun, treating everyone with the utmost courtesy and respect, and employing careful and subtle tricks of rhetoric to make his points.
