Bayushi Michio

   Michio is currently a devastating killing machine with hundreds of XP, a high rank, a maxed-out school, high rings (including a very high void ring), and a variety of other techniques – both personal and granted – as well as his personally-forged legendary jade blades. On the other hand, he started off as a fairly normal character, way back at the beginning of the campaign, nearly eighty sessions ago. Here’s his character sheet from way back near the beginning.

   The player has carefully avoided ever losing the “Unremarkable” heritage modifiers: he’s found it endlessly entertaining to have the character seeking glory that – somehow – always seems to wind up going to somebody else. Perhaps sadly, as his status has risen, so has his glory.

   Michio originally attached himself to Alex, Okari, and Kochige on the grounds that this wandering group of holy men obviously needed a protector – and he was on a warrior pilgrimage anyway. Oddly enough, circumstances – and the fact that everyone except his closest relatives tend to forget all about him – have conspired to keep him with them ever since.
