Rokugan: Return of the Jade Raven
Miya Yumi is the bright, energetic, and charismatic Daimyo of the Imperial Miya family. She and her sister were was raised in the shadow of her much more aggressive older cousin, Miya Satoshi. Daimyo at the time, Satoshi was a cruel and vindictive man. Raised by the Lion Clan, he was a pupil of the equally ambitious Ikoma Ryuuzaki. Satoshi’s bitterness and heavy-handed tactics nearly tore the family apart, until Yumi led a coup against him. Allying herself with numerous important nobles – not the least of which was Emperor Hantei himself – she forced Satoshi to abdicate the position.
Since then, Daimyo Yumi has struggled fiercely to keep the Empire together. Factions rise on occasion that threaten the peace, and she does everything she can to restore balance. After Governor Ikoma became Emperor, Yumi was one of the few to refuse to swear fealty to him. As such her life and livelihood have been threatened, but she stands firm in her defiance.
