Otomo Miyako was born to Father Otomo Juko and Mother Otomo (Shiba) Midori.
Shiba Midori was Yojimbo to Otomo Juko when he was in the courts of the Phoenix. After 7 years of faithful service Juko asked Midori to return with him as wife. Their first child was born the following year. Their second child is Miyako and she was born 3 years later.
Otomo Kiko follows her mother’s footsteps and trains with the Seppun guards.
Otomo Miyako heard the call of the Kami at a young age. The small girl was fond of staring into the sky and whispering to the wind and the sun. This caused her to lose some of her eye sight at a young age.
When the time came to send her to a Shugenja school, Midori used her old contacts in the Phoenix clan to get Miyako a place in the greatest Shugenja school in Rokugan; The Isawa.
During her 7th year there (She was 14) Miyako released fire kami in such a violent manner and explosive rupture, that her eyesight was further damaged to the point of blindness. This has not slowed down her training. Having found strength with healing magics , she specializes in Water spells. She also has an odd connection with fire Kami. They come to her as if they were the moth and she the flame.
During her Gempuku she also learned of two new gifts. The heavens gifted her with the ability to see auras left on objects and she became a great hit the first Winter Court she attended, showcasing this talent. Animals have always been drawn to her and will often be gentle with Miyako.

While she is quite capable in her duties as an Isawa Shugenja, she is also aware that she is a disappointment to her Sensei who believe she will fail due to her limitations. Miyako has a servant that has been with her for the last 5 years. She is called “Quill” and helps Miyako write, dress, and at times leads Miyako. Also recently her family has hired a Ronin named Kento as her Yojimbo. Miyako finds this humorous as who would want to attack the blind?
Physically she is small, barely over 5 foot and just a shade over 100 pounds, her long black hair is often pulled back into a pony tail or it would just fall around her head. There is a white streak in her head from the scar of the flames that took her eyesight. Her eyes are milky white and she has taken to wearing a cloth over her eyes so not to disturb people. She desires greatly to help or serve in some manner greater than a parlor trick. She also often thinks the best of people, even people she has never met and finds herself being taken advantage of from time to time. Miyako hears what people say around her, she smells the world, and feels the Kami. With the Elements as her ally, she is ready to face Rokugan.
