Large:(3 Points) You are significantly larger than the average Rokugani, ranging in height from 6’0” to 6’3” in height. You gain a bonus of +1k0 to the total of all Damage Rolls for any large melee weapon. Crab characters may purchase this Advantage for 3 points. pg.151
Gaijin Name:(1 points) Either due to your lineage or your parents’ fascination with another culture, you possess a name that is clearly not of Rokugani origin. Although there is no honor loss for such a thing, others regard you questionably as a result. Your individual dice may only explode once on a Social Skill Roll (that is, each die has a maximum possible result of 20). This Disadvantage is worth 2 points to Unicorn characters. pg. 159
Social Disadvantage:(3 points) You have slipped from your position within the Celestial Order,and your place in society reflects that. You begin with Status Rank 0. pg. 162
A: I am crab now but I still consider myself Black-Claw2. What family do you belong to?
A: I was a smith back in my homelands so the Kaiu family has become my new home.3. Are you a bushi, a shugenja or a courtier?
A: I am a proud warrior… still not fully sure which one of those words is which.4. How would others describe your appearance?
A: They call me Gaijin or Oni. I say I am Half-Orc but none listen to me. I am green which makes me stand out.5. What is your primary motivation?
A: This is a foreign land, we came to this strange continent at the behest of a man from these lands who wanted our peoples help against a mighty demon. I have come to do my part and I will show these people how we half-orcs fight and craft.6. Who is the person you trust most in the world?
A: Krusk the Mighty Bastard. I would die for him.7. What is your greatest strength and your greatest weakness?
A: My might comes from my body. My weakness are those who are stronger.8. What do you think of Bushido?
A: I have been learning more and more of this Bushido. So far I like it, you know… it can be a great code to live by. (note to self, get back to reading more about it)9. What is your opinion of your clan?
A: The Crab clan is full of mighty warriors, strong humans that live to fight and fight to serve. They are great and I am proud to be a part of this glorious clan. They kinda remind me of Black-Claw.10. Are you married? (Or arranged to be married?)
A: Yes. My wife’s name is Kaiu Vola Black-Claw. She was a fellow smith back home, so I told her one day that I wanted to marry her, she said no. I asked her if she would accept a challenge for her hand in marriage. The challenge was a smithing challenge to see who could make the best blade, I won.11. Do you have any prejudices?
A: I don’t much care for elves… luckily Rukagon does not have any. If anyone asks why, it’s cuz their too dainty.
12. To whom do you owe the most loyalty? p.A: Again Krusk is who I am most loyal to. After that I would say the crab clan itself.13. What are your favorite and least favorite things?
A: I’m gonna have to say meat… a good steak can make a bad day.. well not much better but I would have steak and that is always a good thing. Also I’m not too much fond of rice… I mean I will eat it and all but it’s not that flavorful.14. Do you have any recurring mannerisms?
A: Most of what I do is not anything special but I have noticed that some don’t like that fact that I still pick my nose whenever I want. I can’t help it if I gotta clear it up.15. What about your emotions?
A: Not showing emotions eh? I show what emotion when I want and I don’t care who sees. But you know everynow and then ya just get a little too angry and BAM! Things go bad.16. How would you handle a subordinate’s improper behavior?
A: Smack him upside his head and say “hey stop screwing up.”17. How would your parents describe you?
A: Parents? hahahaha….18. What is your highest ambition?
A: Let’s see… I gots me a wife, check. I got’s me a clan, check. I got’s me little bastards, working on it. Preparing for war, all the time. Maybe making the best armor or weapons I don’t really know.19. How religious are you?
A: Gods don’t care about me.20. How will you die?
A: In a glorious battle or from old age… maybe poison. How the hell would I know I can’t tell the future.
