Mika could have been somebody. At least until her quest to avenge the murder of her lover and mentor led her to earn the ire of the wrong people, most of all the Emerald Magistrate, Shosuro Jimen. Now demoted to a lowly doshin, Mika can only fume and rage at her rank’s inability to investigate his death.

That said, she still feels the pull of duty to the Clan, freed as she was from love, all she had now was her work. Even as a doshin, her skill with the jitte and willingness to get her hands dirty in the back alleys of Toshi Ranbo made her something of a local hero to the invisible and the downtrodden.

Without any prospects of promotion, but retaining the dignity and sense of duty of a true Crane, Mika can be a useful ally for the Player Characters when it comes to investigating certain angles.
