Appearance: Ishirou is a rugged
Tian man who appears much older
than he is, with graying hair worn in a ponytail
and a perpetual scruffy beard. His clothing and
armor are well kept and clean, but obviously of low quality.
Only his sword, a beautiful katana, has any real value.
Ishirou is rightfully protective of it, as it is his only material
link to his cultural heritage.
Personality: Taciturn and dour, Ishirou has no sense of
humor and little reason to smile. He has little patience for
those who strike him as wasteful or spoiled, and is easily
flustered by the attention of an attractive woman.
Ishirou admits that he owns several promising treasure maps, and that one of them shows
the location of an old pirate’s stash here on Smuggler’s Shiv. Alas, the notes on the map indicate that recovering the treasure will take several people. Since they’re already here on the Shiv, what’s the harm in looking for a bit of loot?
In return for his share of the loot, Ishirou teaches the PCs some of his swordfighting styles
and tricks. After a day of practice, these simple but effective tricks grant a +1 bonus to CMB and CMD while wielding a sword or similar weapon.
