Kyoju, The Scavenger

Ruffled Feather Inventor of Exotic and Fine Magickal Goods

Description:

SQUAWK!! Shinny! SQUAWK!

Kyoju-Kyoju is odd even for a Tengu. His feathers are ruffled and some of them are a bit singed. There is even a faint whiff of sulfur and brimstone about him. He wares the clothing of some type of craftsman, but there isn’t any constancy of the tools and object in his pockets that define any one craft. Occasionally he consults his “notebook” which is more an oddly bound collection of paper, parchment, leaves and what every else he could take notes on at the time, including a piece of bark and flat piece of shell.

Bio:

The elders of Kyoju’s tribe knew he was not going to settle down enough to embrace the tribe. He was “unique.” They did let him indulge in his tinkering until the fateful day that he blew up the elders’ nest and turned the near by stream bright purple for a week. He was then encourage to join a passing ship, The Red Sloop, to crew and to go out and discover great wonders.

Like most Shackles Crews, The Red Sloop crew enjoyed the “luck” that a Tengu would bring to their ship. And Kyoju proved to be very handy fixing things. The problems would start when there wasn’t anything for him to fix. And then he would create something. Sometimes it would be useful. Sometimes it would be harmless. Eventually, it exploded.

At that point, the captain of The Red Sloop, encouraged Kyoju to find another ship. This would happen time and time again. Kyoju never really minded moving from ship to ship. He always took something along with him.

Kyoju never formally studied the arcane arts. Just devolved his own way of manipulating the world around him. Over the past few years he would see and talk to other practitioners of The Art. He would see what they could do then ask strange and esoteric questions that usually had nothing to do with what was being shown. But some how he would figure them out and scratch down some diagrams and make notations in different languages in his notebook.

While crewing on The Sea’s Blessing, they were boarded by another pirate ship. During this encounter, Kyoju found himself in front of a man with a curious metal staff. Knowing that being on the business end of any staff is not a good place to be, this one seemed particularly foreboding. The wielder grinned at Kyoju, “Your Lucks run out Jinx Eater.” Then in that moment the metal staff exploded in a strange and interesting way. Kyoju was intrigued. In the midst of the melee around him, Kyoju examined the metal staff and the now quite dead previous owner.

After the boarders were repelled, Kyoju began to figure out the workings on this “Masukettoju” and tinkered with ways to improve it for his own use. He formed a interesting bond with “Masu” and over the years have replaced every piece on the gun at least twice. Some how it still seems to shoot straight for Kyoju, mostly.
