Savage Rise of the Runelords
Outcast bastard son of the Kaijitsu family
Tsuto Kaijitsu is the son of Lonjiku Kaijitsu and Atsuii Kaijitsu, and younger brother of Ameiko Kaijitsu. A half-shoanti, Tsuto’s birth not only caused a stir in their relationship, but in the town of Sandpoint as well. The identity of Tsuto’s father was never revealed, and he was shipped off to the Turandarok Academy to be raised outside the family he was never really a part of, visited only by his sister, and even then very rarely and in secret.
His relationship with Ameiko changed drastically in 4701 AR, when he struck her during an argument, prompting her abandonment of Sandpoint for a year of adventuring. They further argued in 4702 at his mother’s funeral, most likely over Tsuto’s overstated opinion that his father had pushed Atsuii to her “accidental” death, a squabble which ended with Lonjiku nearly breaking his son’s jaw with his cane. Tsuto left Sandpoint in disgrace, heading to Magnimar, where he attempted to start a new life for himself.
