Jade Regent: Visions of Jade
Tsuto Kaijitsu is the son of Lonjiku Kaijitsu and Atsuii Kaijitsu, and younger brother of Ameiko Kaijitsu. A half-elf born to two human parents, 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. It was there that he met Nualia Tobyn, arguably the most influential person in his life.
Nualia’s hatred for Sandpoint, and her desire to bring about its destruction inspired Tsuto to exact his own revenge upon Lonjiku for his unhappy childhood. Together they plotted the goblin invasion which took place on 1 Rova, 4707 AR. Tsuto’s part in the ordeal was to blackmail his father to make certain arrangements on the night of the Swallowtail Festival to accommodate the raid and ensure its success, even if Lonjiku didn’t know what the result of his actions would be. After the raid was quelled and things returned to normal in the town, Tsuto took his plan further, killing his father by encasing him in molten glass and kidnapping Ameiko after she turned down his offer to join himself and Nualia in their ongoing plans.
