City of Lies
The Bayushi Courtier School
The Bayushi Courtiers are the predators of the courts of Rokugan. They have earned a reputation as ruthless pragmatics, and if you are not their ally then you are their enemy. The Bayushi courtiers are however fully aware of this reputation as they have spent the past eleven centuries cultivating it. This reputation aids the courtier in his tasks, and even though they may threaten to do something they rarely expect to have to go through with their threat. This does not however mean they are not capable to do so if needed. Their foremost skills lie in convincing their targets that co-operating will be far less painful than opposition. They often choose this course of persuasion because it has proven just as effective if not more so than the friendly “gift giving” of the Doji Courtier.
