Character du Jour: Tomoe Gozen

“I am one of the Onna Bugeisha. I am the wind that splits the tree and the defender of my homeland. When you threaten my people, you threaten my children. When you threaten my children, you die. Is that what you want, ogre?”

Dirty Little Secret: None. What you see is what you get with this little piece of awesomeness.

Notes: Tomoe Gozen is a real person, or was back in 1000 AD. She was a kick-ass female warrior and expert in the sword and bow – every bit the equal of any male samurai. Most female warriors favoured the Naginata thanks to it’s increased reach, but Tomoe Gozen bucked that trend by getting up close and personal. I’ve re-imagined her with a sword and sai for 4e purposes and sheer coolness.
