General Physical Description
Edogawa is lean, but not as emaciated as some may remember him being when he first came to Dragon's Guard. While he does not appear muscular, he seems far from delicate. His skin is not the porcelain white the courts prefer, nor are his hands soft and unmarred. Beyond his calloused hands and darker complexion, there is an additional foreign quality in his appearance that is hard to place. It may be in the eyes or in the cheek bones, but it isn't difficult to see why whispers of his ties to gaijin have followed him throughout his life. His choices to oversee Merenaese workers, speak their language and adopt some material elements of their culture has no helped with that.


Known History
Miya Edogawa is the firstborn and only son of Miya Odorihime. He and his sister represent the next generation of a long, respectable lineage that can be traced to Emperor Hantei Ningi. Even in the shadow of Otomo Tohojatsu's legacy, the line has remained well respected and influential, with Odorihime now serving as the Imperial Matchmaker. Edogawa, however, is not the shining example of propriety his mother expected him to be.

Careful consultation and examination of his unfortunate appearance have concluded that it is a spiritual issue. This, at least, suggests that his appearance is not his parents fault. It is his burden to carry alone. He chose to do so through study, craft and some less noble indulgences. Miya Odorihime would have corrected her son's selfish behavior and end his naval hobbies long ago, if he had not gained the attention of Asahina Yajnden and Hantei Jama.

They recognized the potential in Edogawa's craftsmanship and offered encouragement and opportunity. The Miya was given a new project to consider and worked closely with Yajinden in developing the idea of a new fleet, an exploratory fleet. He gained access to new marine technology and shipbuilding techniques and was soon building ships for a new Imperial navy. This was all forgotten for a time, when he washed up on the shoals near Dragon's Guard City.

While he regained his memory during his stay with Dragon's Guard City, Edogawa feels he gained more. He has reconnected with the colleges and his family, with a new appreciation for both. And, he gained new information and a better understanding of his place in what is to come. With that in mind, he has worked tirelessly to complete and prepare Hantei Jama's fleet and organize its resources.


And, there's the dog...

Nari is a dog who found Edogawa on the shoals near Dragon's Guard City. His origins are unknown, but Edogawa suspects he came from one of the many boats to pass through the port, likely a Tortoise vessel. Nari is an avid and capable swimmer and is quite comfortable on a boat. He has been Edogawa's near constant companion since they met.

In a small block of La Nueva Esperanza, near La Plaza de Diversidad, Edogawa found a modest stone cottage. Little separates it from the other homes surrounding it, literally bringing him close to his neighbors. The locals have been kind and welcoming and he's found he enjoys all of the activity around him, from the young men and women traveling back and forth to the plaza, to the children playing in the lane, to the elders gossiping on their steps, and to the evening gatherings of food, music and laughter.

Imperial Navy Ship Yamato Maru
Glory 1.2
Large Vessel (Capacity 5)
Foreign Design
Location: Dragon’s Guard City


Special: Due to exposure to the Fire Kami, Yamato Maru remains infused with their energy. Its planks have taken an orange hue and are slightly luminescent in the dark, while all fire burning on the ship is always bright and vivid. For better or worse, on the ship kami scarcity rules don't apply, and shugenja on it are considered to possess Elemental Imbalance (Fire). In addition, Sakkaku has retained its fondness of the ship: all who stay on it and are not Cursed by Sakkaku are considered Blessed by Sakkaku as long as they give in to and practice various mariner superstitions.


Crew
Captain: Miya Edogawa
First Mate: Agasha Sanjuro
Boatswain: Quick Lopez
Crew: Seasoned Sailors
Crew: Priest
Crew: Cook
Crew: Shipwrights
Crew: Warriors

Much of the original design of the Yamato Maru remains intact. It still has many traditional aesthetic elements, some of which are actually enhanced by the odd glow of the old timber. It's modern features also remain, of course, structurally strengthened wherever possible. It doesn't seem overly impressive in daylight, but The fiery visage its lanterns create at night can be quite intimidating.

Inside, she is split into three decks, the first deck consisting of the captain's quarters, first officer's quarters, and a shared officer's mess, before opening onto the main deck of the ship. The modifications of the previous captain remain, freeing up the more spacious room for navigation, maps, and planning.

The second deck holds the crew bunks in two rooms running parallel, one on each side of the corridor running the length of the ship, and after each bunkroom, the armory and crew mess respectively. At the end of the row are store-rooms and galley.

The third deck contains the holds, split into a number of parallel holds, subdivided to defend against flooding, and loaded with supplies for the journey, in the full expectation that other vessels will be drawing on Yamato's stores before the journey ends. Two small holds at the end can be utilized as brig or strongroom, respectively, though they are not currently allotted the role.
