Rokugan: Return of the Jade Raven
Not willing to make an enemy, Ikoma Ryuuzaki formally requested Matsu Chiharu act as the guardian and chief magistrate of Toshi Ranbo, which she grudgingly accepted. She is also the commander of the garrison, and, if she ever chose to disobey Ikoma Ryuuzaki, would be unquestionably the most powerful woman in the city. While she dearly wishes to continue the conquest of the Crane Lands, Ryuuzaki has stalled her until next spring at least. Chiharu is an honorable, devoted and loyal Lion, however, and despite her rage would never disobey her superiors.
