Heroes of the Everflame
The Kaijitsu Family
The Kaijitsus are perhaps the richest family in town, which is extraordinary considering their Minkai origin. Lonjiku Kaijitsu, the head of the family, carried on his father’s proud work as glassmaker, and the Sandpoint Glassworks is perhaps the town’s most prosperous business.
Lonjiku’s daughter Ameiko shamed him not only by becoming an adventurer, but also by opening and running a tavern and flophouse-“hardly women’s work,” he’s fond of telling anyone who’ll listen. Of course, those who knew or worked for Lonjiku knew his short temper was his real problem.
Ameiko’s beauty is more than matched by her skill at music, and few are the evenings that pass without at least two or three songs being performed by the talented woman in the Rusty Dragon. When Ameiko left town several years ago to become an adventurer, it scandalized her family enough. But when she retired from adventuring a year later, and returned to Sandpoint, she bought and renovated the Rusty Dragon-an act that only further scandalized and shamed her father.
Lonjiku lived alone in his manor. Only a few servants and errand boys stayed with him. Ameiko’s mother died a long time ago, and since Lonjiku could not hold his animosity towards his daughter, she moved into the Rusty Dragon.
A few years ago, both Lonjiku and Tsuto Kaijutsu, Ameiko’s half-brother, were killed during the goblin attacks on Sandpoint. Since then, Ameiko has divided her time between tending to business affairs at the Rusty Dragon and mounting short expeditions into the Thassilonian ruins of Varisia.
