Tamori Taka: The Monster shows its face

HS Wift

I have been HS Wift for the longest time now, through some of the darkest hours I have known, and it warms my heart to know that the light that led me through lives on still.

May it never die.

Tamori Heru paced frantically. He hadn't slept in 36 hours. He wasn't aware of any birth taking this long in recent memory. His wife, Leneya, has been in labour for the past 27 hours, and Heru was starting to worry.

The door creaked ajar and the nursewife poked her head through. "Tamori-sama, your child is here. Prepare yourself." Those last words concerned Heru. What must he prepare for? Was there a problem, had the child not made it? Had Leneya? All the questions that had plagued him these last hours all came rushing back. Slowly, he entered the bedchamber.

His heart relaxed as he saw his wife, Leneya, clearly exhausted but smiling, and cradling a bundle of cloth in her arms. He approached the pair, a smile growing upon his face. Looking down, into the bundle, Heru saw a baby. A very small baby, smaller than any he had seen. And one of her eyes was a vibrant, unnatural purple. His hand found his wakizashi.

Leneya smiled at him.

"Taka. Her name is Taka."


No prequels yet. Why not write one?

This will be the backstory for a character I will be playing in an RPG. The setting used is Rokugan, created by AEG for their L5R RPG and CCG, which was then sold to FFG. I did not create this world, though all the characters are original characters.
