Everything posted by Mirumoto Rin

  1. Rin, after recognizing the markings, takes a cup over to Zoyu, "Same as the masks," she shrugs. "Kageko-san, make them speak, please."
  2. "Togashi-san there," Rin points out the little girl peering in around the broken door behind the newly arrived samurai, "that is the one you owe your debt to for with out her I would not have stumbled upon you.' Then Rin faces Zoyu with a big smile, "Ah Zoyu-san, I had hoped to find clues and we may still., this one, is Togashi Kagato, a clansman, with an interesting story that we may wish to pursue. And these offal you see on the floor and two that fled, were holding him captive and would have done terrible things with his death I believe." She nudges the woman's corpse with her shoe, "This was a witch, its bag has Maho, and you may want to strike its head off just to be sure it is dead." Rin walks over to the little girl and crouches down to her level, " Domo, you did very well child, I Mirumoto Rin, am in your debt."
  3. "We will await my companions they should be here soon, then we will see about this thing who dares wear the skin of our clansmen. Perhaps he knows something of our other goal." She smiles at the monk obviously admiring his tattoos, "I welcome the chance to have a clansman at my side. much more pleasant than some of those I have traveled with." She tilted her head gazing as he fitted the hat. "I like that."
  4. "Hmm, I am Rin, and how nice of a coincidence for I am a searcher of truth myself, among other things." Rin moves to the boxes that were being filled and knocks a lid aside with her foot and peers in at the contents. "What was this all about if I may ask." Kagato notices that the swordsman is wearing a second Katana on her back and a single jitte is in her obi along with her Daisho. the dark hair is shoulder length on one side and shaved on the other and a Tattoo of a dragon decorates her skull in the shaved area from above and in front of her ear with the tail curling down along her neck.
  5. Rin looks back at the open door and sniffs loudly then with a casual flick of her wakizashi she slices the rope binding the monk to the post and sheathes it in one deft move then crouching she finds an unsoiled portion of the boos mans robe to clean her long sword before standing and sheathing it as well. Rin waits for the monk to take the rope from his mouth, while she waits she nudges the witches body with the toe of her shoe. Hmm wonder if i should cut the head off just to make sure...
  6. Rin will spend void to fudge up the spell if it is at her. she will dart across the room at the witch waiting to the last second to iajutsu draw on the witch iajutsu attack: 6d10o10 32 she will keep the 10 and 2 of the 5s for a 20 if that 1s a hit damage is damage: 5d10o10 28 Keeping the 8 & 7 for 15 damage "Should have listened to me"
  7. Rin's head tilted not missing the hand dipping into the satchel, she swiftly slid into the room taking a martial stance from which she would be able to launch and attack in any direction, her hands grasped the hilts of her swords, her eyes never leaving the woman. "Witch, withdraw the hand from the satchel empty, or die, open your mouth you die, anyone moves, you die. I am Mirumoto Rin, Jade magistrate and you are all under arrest. Resist and you die."
  8. At some Warehouse in Ikoma's Eye Rin straightened and look up and down the ally she motioned for the child to follow quietly and surveyed the remainder of the perimeter of the warehouse spotting the exits. When satisfied she took the girl a short way away. Pilling the Jitte from her obi she asked, “Do you know what this is?” The little girl nodded furiously wide eyed. “Good you know where the Golden Pony Inn is?” Again, the girl nodded and this time said, “Hai!” “Good, ‘ Rin handed the girl the Jitte, “ I want you to take this to the Golden Pony there you will find a Silver haired Kakita woman she is magistrate as am I. Give her this and tell her where I am and if she ask lead her back to this place. Can you do that for me?” The little girl nodded furiously as she took the jitte, “Hai! Samurai sama, Hai!” “Good now go hurry.” Rin watched the girl run off the way they had come, and she stood, sniffed and rolled her shoulders flexing, checked her weapons and then strode to the door into the part of the warehouse where she had seen the bound monk. Gently so as not to make any noise she tried the door. It was locked. Rin stepped back and with a mighty kick smashed the door with her foot near the latched, the door flew opened slammed against the back and hung by one leather hinge the other having broken. Rin stepped into the warehouse and looked at those assembled. “Now what was it you were saying about Magistrates?”
  9. Rin frowned at the interruption, but said nothing instead she leans toward Zoyu. "You seem to have a better handle on this. I will go and see if i can find my usual source of information." she said as she tapped the dragon tattoo on the shaved side of her scalp. With one fluid motion she stood sketched a meager bow toward her companions and spun and walked away from the table. She gathered her daisho and the long sword and stepped out into the sunlight. Daisho in obi and longsword across her back with her half shaved tattooed head Rin made quite a sight and it was hard for any one to not glance at the imposing samurai. She watch the throng and in short order found what she sought, a group of children running and playing underfoot as they were wont to do. Shrugging her shoulders she marched up to the children and singled out the one who looked oldest a girl with big brown eyes about 10 or so. "You come here." Rin called Several of the children ran away but the girl stood her ground. then approached the samurai and bowed. "Your brave and mannered unlike some of your friends. I need your help. I am looking for a place that does tattoos," she laid a finger on her dragon tattoo, "do you know of such a place?"
  10. "No, do you have this sake," Rin gesture to the Scorpion sister who had the empty bottle indicating that she should show it to the inn keeper, "If this is a brand you keep, bring us each a bottle and one for yourself so that you may join us."
  11. After they leave the boat Rin pauses and and gestures for Shosuro Kamikoto join her. She reaches into her Obi and pulls out an empty sake bottle, which she hands to the Scorpion. She taps the embossed front showing the brand of Sake, nods and winks, then whistling a sea shanty walks off to join Zoyu.
  12. Rin smiled at the Captain. "It has been a good voyage and I thank you for all that you have done for me. I count you as a good friend Michiyo-san." She bows "I will send word of where we are staying. I do not know how long this afffair will take or where we will be going after. If you find you need to sail do not delay on our count, but do let me know when you are sailing I may have messages I would like you to carry for me if you are going to where i need to send them." She smiles broadly and clasps the good captain on the shoulder. Then departs the ship to join her companions at the horses. "So here we are. Do any of you know where we go now to finish this?" Rin asks of her fellows.
  13. Rin smiled at her friend, the familiar rocking of the ship welcome to her senses. She could get used to this, in her mind she saw herself throwing away all the things which weigh her down and becoming a sailor maybe even captaining her own ship. A fantasy, but a nice one. "Hmm, Michiyo-san we are probably going to Ikoma's Eye, but I will check with my companions and seek their input before the final decision." She sniffs loudly, "I will let you know. Now where do you want me? I won't be carted around the empire without pulling my own weight. So, up in the lines, or on the oars?"
  14. Rin stood as the silence grew then took a deep exasperated breath. "Gather your things if you wish to come, we will be going to where the wine is made. The swordmaker has a varied clientele, and is not likely to leave his forge if we find nothing at the breweries when go go find him. These dogs, drank this wine religiously, one does not develop that sort of attachment to wine if it is not something you have been familiar with for a very long time. I believe that the chances of finding something that will lead us to the end of this mystery will be found there. So let's go we have a ship to catch I want to be on the next tide."
  15. "No, you do not wish to know what happened in Tsuma." Rin stands and goes to her swords, "Great evil was done there and the soul of the Empire was attacked." She places her swords in her obi and takes the magic sword and puts it over her shoulder. She adjusts the ties to hold it in place to make sure it is secure and comfortable. "We overcame the maho used and because of that we were made magistrates, that is all you need to know. Now we either have a boat to catch, or, if we are going the other way, I need to go and Tell the captain of the Steady we will not be needing his services." She turns back and faces the table and asks her fellow magistrates, "Which is it to be?"
  16. Rin listened looking at neither her friend nor the two Scorpions. She had returned only moments before the arrival of the brother and sister, for their relationship was apparent despite the silly masks they wore, and had only just sat down while Zoyu made a quick explanation for what had transpired in her absence, when they had entered. Now she poured herself a cup of sake and drank emptying the cup then refilling it. "^" She burps after draining the second cup. "So according to the other one, the two of you have investigated this cult. Aside form the zombies last night have either of you fought them before?"
  17. On the Imperial Barge... Withdrawing her hand Rin bows once more but she cannot keep the slight smile from her lips as much as she tries. "Thank you my prince, for giving me your time today and for easing my heart. Until we meet again" After she is off the Barge she makes her way to the Steady to make arrangements for the Magistrates and herself. Once done there she returns to the Apple Blossom.
  18. Rin looks at Satorii, see the lashes of his eyes the fine veins of his closed lids. She is Mirumoto Rin and she is bold and brash. "You are that man my prince." She places her hand on top of his gently, a soft caress. "Your actions Satorii, " his eyes flash open at the intimate use of his name and find her deep brown eyes staring back at him boldly, "your actions speak louder than any command you could voice and all will praise your name at the telling of the tale, and more, I will be in awe, for I know that the glory and honor were not why you fought but because you are a leader. You are that man, my prince, and I hope that I can be worthy for you."
  19. On the Imperial Barge... "No words are necessary my prince," Rin's voice is barely a whisper. "there is no one here to hear what has been said save our Ancestors. I think they will not judge. It is my Duty to Serve, It is no burden, It is my Honor. Thank you My Prince." Rin bows, her balance restored, her heart peaceful.
  20. He gifts me with trust, Rin thinks, and will this destroy that? All I want now is to ease his burden, but is that my mind or my heart. Do I fear for the Empire or the man. "My prince, I do not wish to add to your many burdens, but I have found that duty and heart are enmeshed and also conflicted. I did not come here today to speak of my heart, but it is my heart that speaks. Know my wise prince, that I do not ask anything for myself, I only wish to do my duty as my heart tells me. The Empire is in danger, you My Prince, are in danger. This danger is not of outside origin I believe." Rin shakes her head then breathes deeply she has come this far said this much. "I have had suspicions since the attack on your person after the tournament. I have no solid tangible proof, no evidence for any court, only what I have learned and all of that is hearsay. To even make such accusations would dishonor me and most likely lead to my execution. But I could not allow you to stand in danger without knowing, without warning. The maho we have faced then and the Jade Magistrates since, as you know corrupts but I believe that that corruption had already taken hold in places that are not suspect. I have made a vow to myself before my Ancestors, To protect you with every portion of my ability. I will do that if I am allowed. I will tell you everything I suspect if you ask me to. But if you trust me My Prince, you will not ask. You will take all caution, surround yourself only with those you know in your heart you can trust, and trust no one else, not even those in places of high honor and prestige, not even any who you would naturally trust simple because of who they are or titles they bear. Let me, Mirumoto Rin, with my heart and soul, my Swords sworn to you, Let me go and end this threat to you, to the empire."
  21. On the Imperial Barge... "I can only be myself, and protecting you is my duty and my wish." She looks uneasily at the guards closes her eyes and breathes to steady her heart. A hundred... no a thousand things go through her mind. The thing she feels she must tell him, the things she wants to tell him and all the things between. In the end it may damn her but it the burden she and she alone must bare. "I will always strive to serve you My Prince and to protect you. Whatever may come. I felt the need to say these things to you in person. I hope I give no offense." She gazes upon the man, her prince, and know peace.
  22. On the Imperial Barge... Breath deep find your center this is the Prince now not the man you love with you heart. Rin moves to the seat. “My Lord Prince, our meeting last night was busy and there was no time or opportunity to say things that I have wished to say to you since the Tournament.” She looks at the guards knowing that they will not leave unless he orders them to. “My Lord Prince, after my appointment and subsequent return home I had time to contemplate. You see after our appointment I did not wish to be a magistrate. All I wanted was to serve and master my art, to become the best warrior that I Mirumoto Rin could be. Ever since I first set foot upon our mountain I have striven to improve in all ways. But I know my duty. But there is one thing that my mind and heart brought to the forefront in my time of contemplation. You, My Lord Prince. You are the future of Rukogan, of the Clans, of the World. You are my future, what ever that may be. And I wanted you to know that my swords, my honor, my life are yours" Rin bows
  23. Rin was startled when the Prince appeared she was speechless for several seconds before she came to her sense and vacated her seat to kneel before her prince and bow lower than she had ever bowed before. "My Lord Prince. You honor me." She had not expected the prince to come to her, she had thought that she would be called to him this was most unusual and combined with her fatigue put her off balance.
