Dragon Age: Rise of the Runelords
Ameiko is a beautiful but somewhat irreverent woman of Tian descent who is the head of one of Sandpoint’s founding families. Ameiko may be among the town’s nobility, but she’s never really cared for the aristocracy—she’s always had an urge to explore, and loves hearing stories of adventures and daring deeds. While she has a lot of friends and admirers in town, Ameiko has never accepted anyone as anything more than a friend, diplomatically avoiding personal questions and proposals of romance, much to the frustration of several eager suitors in Sandpoint. She’s a talented singer and samisen player as well.
In the past few weeks she has been rarely seen and when she is in town attempted to maintain her families holdings she has a colder, sadder bearing. She has recently bleached her hair and has taken to wearing white outfits that are far more regal then functional or comfortable.
Ameiko is best known in the town of Sandpoint as the proprietor of The Rusty Dragon, the most popular tavern in town. A member of the town’s small aristocracy, she is the eldest daughter of Lonjiku Kaijitsu and Atsuii Kaijitsu, and half-sister of Tsuto Kaijitsu. When her younger brother’s questionable birth caused his ostracization from the family, Ameiko was the only person who visited him in the Turandarok Academy.
Tsuto’s influence on Ameiko was notable, despite his near total absence from her everyday life, and an argument between the two siblings in 4701 during which he struck her prompted her abandonment of Sandpoint for a year of adventuring. Ameiko returned to Sandpoint in 4702 for her mother’s funeral, and partook in another heated argument with her brother over his overstated opinion that their father had pushed Atsuii to her “accidental” death. It was not long after this dispute that Ameiko turned her back on her family and began her career as a tavern owner.
Sadly in late 4047 her brother committed suicide after killer her father leaving her as heir and last surviving member of the Kaijitsu family. She has since assumed the role of both owner of her families glass-works and jewelers as well as taking her seat on the cities council. She has also moved back into her families estate home on the cliffs overlooking sandpoint.
