Rise of the Runelords
Ameiko's half brother, Atsuii's illegitimate son
Tsuto was something of a scandal when he was born 21 years ago, since he’s a half-elf and that neither of his parents are elves. It was obvious that old Lonjiku wasn’t the boy’s father, and his rage at the discovery of his wife’s indiscretion was the talk of the town for months. Lonjiku’s wife Atsuii never revealed who the father was, and it’s a testament to Lonjiku’s stubbornness that they remained married. Tsuto was handed over to the Turandarok Academy to be raised outside of the Kaijitsu family, ignored by his father and forbidden visits from his mother. His older sister Ameiko visited him in secret a few times a month to keep him company, bring him some food, and promise him that someday things would get all sorted out. That all changed six years ago, when they had a terrible argument in which Tsuto struck Ameiko. Only Tsuto and Ameiko know what the argument was about, but whatever it was is what sent Ameiko away from Sandpoint for a year, during which time she made a living as an adventurer. She returned to Sandpoint ﬁve years ago to attend her mother’s funeral. Tsuto was quite public in his opinions that his father had pushed Atsuii oﬀ the cliﬀ to her death, and during the funeral there was a confrontation. Lonjiku nearly broke Tsuto’s jaw with his cane, after which Tsuto cursed him and left Sandpoint. Ameiko tried to reestablish contact with him ever since, but was never able to track him down.
As strange a coincidence as it seems, while in Magnimar, Tsuto and Naulia came to find one another. When Tsuto Kaijitsu joined Nualia’s group in Magnimar a year ago, he was already in love with her. He’d seen her on the streets of Sandpoint many times, but never had the courage to approach the mysterious beauty. So when she approached him with an oﬀer of a job, he felt as if fate had ﬁnally dealt him a good hand. When he learned that her plans involved burning his hometown as an oﬀering to her goddess, Lamashtu, Tsuto was even more thrilled—not at the opportunity to serve the goddess of monsters (Tsuto doesn’t have much interest in religion) but as an opportunity to get revenge on the town he blamed for his bitter and joyless childhood.
