High Concept: Son of Susanoo and Ambassador to Winter
Trouble: Under My Father’s Thumb
Background: Arashi grew up primarily in San Francisco in a mid-sized family who knew very little, if any, about the supernatural. While spending most of the year state-side immersed in the mortal school system, his summer’s were entirely different. Every summer from the time he was 5 until 18 he traveled to Japan to spend the summer with his father, in his father’s court. There he was trained to eventually become a valuable member of his father’s household, a representative for Susanoo in the moral world.
Phase Aspect: Raised in Two Worlds
Rising Conflict: By the time Arashi had reached 23, he realized that he was being used. His father saw him, or at least acted as if he was only a tool to be used, to further his father’s standing and power. He grew disillusioned with his role and started to try and distance himself from the court, becoming more involved in the motal world. He even applied to Stanford to start making a life for himself apart from the supernatural. But his father soon found out, and could not let one of his best assets vanish. Instead, Susanoo gave him Kusanagi, a powerful sword, in the hope that the power would keep Arashi’s attention, and sent him as an ambassador to the Winter Court to distract him. And to ensure Arashi’s cooperation, Susanoo brought Arashi’s twin-siblings, now 18 and budding with magical talent, under his “protection” from the Red Court. He had no choice but to accept, for fear that his brother and sister would be harmed.
Aspect: Kusanagi, the Double-Edged Sword
First Adventure: When Queen Mab decides to send Arashi to Tuscon, AZ to work with Lord Marshall, he curses his luck. Why would she send the son of an ocean spirit to the middle of a freaking desert?! But, since it did put him far away from his father’s influence and the fact that he had no choice, he decided to make the best of it. Attempting to get a quick understanding of the city, he decided to spend a day as a mortal; no sword, no Court duties, nothing. Just a day as an unrecognizable no one. Of course, that’s impossible when he finds that his sword constantly reappears at his side, dragging him into a bloody conflict between the two Faerie courts. And vampires.
