Rise of the Runelords (RPHaven)
Tsuto Kaijitsu is Ameiko Kaijitsu’s older brother. His birth was a scandal, since neither of Ameiko’s parents were elves. It was obvious that old Lonjiko Kaijitsu wasn’t his father, and the 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. Ameiko started visiting him in secret once she learned about his existence at the age of 10, visiting him 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 ended in 4705, when they had a terrible argument in which Tsuto struck Ameiko, which sent Ameiko away from Sandpoint for a year, during which time she made a living as an adventurer.
Tsuto was quite public in his opinions that his father had pushed Atsuii off a 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 has tried to reestablish contact with him ever since, but was never able to track him down. That is, until one day when Tsuto contacted her with a letter…
Tsuto somehow became a leader of a scheme to destroy the town of Sandpoint using various Goblin tribes. Following the orders of a mysterious benefator, whom he pines for, Tsuto orchestrated the first Sandpoint Goblin raid to obtain the bones of Ezakien Tobyn and was busy working on the second raid when he contacted his sister to join him in the destruction of the town and the death of Lonjiku. He killed Lonjiku, incasing him in glass, and tried to win his sister over, but when she struck him, he had his goblins lock her away.
When the heroes of sandpoint arrived in the glassworks, he tried to stop them, but he was beaten to an inch of his life and taken away by the guards. Upon his awakening, he would not give up much in the way of information, citing love as the reason.
Things changed when Taru Lahti came to interrogate him a second time. He spoke to her as if he knew more about her than he should have, first flustering her with reminders of erotica he drew, then delving deep into her core with his words. He asked her what she cared for so much in Sandpoint and told her that he killed Lonjiko Kaijitsu because the man had killed his mother, and that he felt alone in the world because his own sister rejected him.
She and him participated in verbal attacks and probings of each others psyche until he opened up slightly to her but then he was starting to get to her, telling her that she need not hide herself from the world. That she was a terrifying sight to behold and that was nothing to be ashamed of.
