V’neef Genji’s Journal, on Akane Keiko:

A street urchin and brawler with absolutely no talent at theft exalted as a Fire Aspect after a heist against my Verdant Aerie Company in Chiaroscuro. Apparently, she had burned her friends and my hired guards to a crisp when she Exalted. I chose to take her in and see if he could use her to recoup the losses. She resisted at first and even I was surprised at her martial prowess, were it not for my Charms, I would have been seriously hurt. After literally shocking her back to her senses, I took her in and gave her the choice of death or servitude. I made it appear that a warehouse fire took place when his guards tried to stop a group of thieves. I then had her tutored as much as a Dynast under the circumstances.

Previously illiterate, she enjoyed the books and further honed her martial prowess. She’s become a bit overprotective of me in the past few years and she is now “employed” as my bodyguard. She would serve still even without the complex oaths that bind her to me.

She is openly Exalted where I cannot appear so. She proves as an excellent deterrent to threats and cheating. She is however, quite loud and very obvious.

She had some rather rustic, greasy sounding Southern name. I did not like it and I gave her the name Akane Keiko, because of her sunny disposition.
