Can you make them NOT a ronin, Marie?  In L5R, and especially Crane lands, they aren't respected very much.  And I'd rather not have one character being 'picked on' because the setting says they should be.

I'm sure all the uppity Crane ladies and gentlemen will give the dashing ronin all sorts of by day, but give him plenty of company by night. :P

I had to answer more than a couple of questions before my ronin shugenja was approved, but they are definitely possible.

Yeah Bushi are encouraged to add Kata given their rank as for Kiho for Shugenja I'm kind of fine with it that would have to be more reviewed. Also Don't go raising rings willy nilly to met requirements. >>;; if you already submitted a character... >.> Edit: <--- This is more for the people who are approaching 170 IR

Okay this might sound rather amateurish however, I really have wracked my brain in contemplating this. Does anyone here like the Lion enough to maybe lend me a few ideas or help run a few Lion NPCs? I've always had a tough time trying to get into the mindset of a Lion especially in a high political setting where less fighting is involved.

YORITOMO COURTIER SCHOOL
RANK 1: DUTY BEFORE HONOR
Like the Yasuki, the Mantis courtiers are merchants as well
as diplomats, and they cultivate a personal style built around
intimidation rather than friendship. Furthermore, they spend
much of their lives outside of the courts dealing with some of
the more unsavory characters in Rokugan. You do not lose Glory
or Honor for using the Commerce skill in public, and you do
not lose Honor for using the Intimidation (Control) skill. Any
time you are making Social Skill Rolls against ronin, bandits,
gang members, mercenaries, pirates, and other lawless types,
you gain a number of Free Raises equal to your School Rank.
TSI SMITH SCHOOL [ARTISAN]
RANK ONE: TOOLS OF THE FORTUNES
The Tsi Smith dedicates his life to reaching perfection in the
heat of the furnace. All Craft Skills are considered School
Skills for you for the purposes of effects that target School
Skills. Whenever you make a Craft Skill Roll, you gain one
point of Glory for succeeding, and one additional point for
every increment of 5 by which you exceed the TN. This effect
only applies to rolls a made against a TN equal to 10 plus your
School Rank x5 or higher.

Multiple Schools 10 PTS

Lost Love 3 PTS
Social Disadvantage 3 PTS
Idealistic 2 PTS
Soft Hearted 2 PTS

Was once a member of the Yoritomo family.
3. IS YOUR CHARACTER A BUSHI, A SHUGENJA, OR A COURTIER?
A courtier and a physician.
4. HOW WOULD OTHERS DESCRIBE YOUR CHARACTER’S APPEARANCE?
Every character should have a rough description in order to give him some sort of life when describing him to others. What is the character's most striking feature? Does his mood come through in his appearance or is he inscrutable? Does he make other feel at ease, or make them uncomfortable?
5. WHAT IS YOUR CHARACTER’S PRIMARY MOTIVATION? He will seek to redeem himself in the eyes of the Emperor and Rokugan. Regain a duty and family and clan maybe one day by building his own. See his vision of a extension of bushido for those dedicated to healing.
6. WHO IS THE PERSON YOUR CHARACTER TRUSTS MOST IN THE WORLD?
The person he trusted most was Tsi, Ayame  his now deceased  wife.
Characters should have developed background in order to facilitate roleplaying. This question not only includes the individual's identity, but how that person met the character, why they are so close, and other similar questions.
7. WHAT IS YOUR CHARACTER’S GREATEST STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS?
His greatest strength in his eyes is his Idealism. His Greatest weakness that many see in him is that he is to soft hearted.
8. WHAT DOES YOUR CHARACTER THINK OF BUSHIDO?
Bushido is an honorable path and a noble way to live but it can be improved upon by a unique focus of a healer and that not every death should be considered a failure of one’s duty. When all was given to save a life.
9. WHAT IS YOUR CHARACTER’S OPINION OF HIS CLAN?
His opinion of his  clan is they are short sighted and distracted by temporal matters. I would hold more faith in the fortunes and the Fortune blessed emperor than thos of the Mantis.
10. IS YOUR CHARACTER MARRIED?
He was it was a wonderful marriage he was fulfilling responsibilities to his clan and he was actually in love and she with him
11. DOES YOUR CHARACTER HAVE ANY PREJUDICES?

12. TO WHOM DOES YOUR CHARACTER OWE THE MOST LOYALTY?

13. WHAT ARE YOUR CHARACTER’S FAVORITE AND LEAST FAVORITE THINGS?
Favorite Thing: Spending a quiet moment at the shrine and the going to a tea house afterwards as that is the best way to end the day.
Least Favorite thing; Talking about himself cause he feels its tedious and he would rather hear about others.
14. DOES YOUR CHARACTER HAVE ANY RECURRING MANNERISMS?
When Contemplating something or nervous he will rub his left ear lobe.
15. WHAT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER’S EMOTIONS?
A true samurai is not supposed to show emotion, but no one is completely disciplined at all times, and everyone demonstrates to some degree of emotion at one point or another. What emotion is the character most likely to display when circumstances arise? What are the things that push him to the edge most easily, and which emotions are the easiest for him to hold in check?
16. HOW WOULD YOUR CHARACTER HANDLE A SUBORDINATE’S IMPROPER BEHAVIOR?
The actions of a subordinate reflect the honor of his superior and in such cases a superior has considerable amount of leeway in dealing with a subordinate. Is the character the sort to demand the subordinates seppuku over even a minor infraction (something that could get the character into significant trouble very quickly), or will he forgive the behavior and attempt to correct it?
17. HOW WOULD YOUR CHARACTER’S PARENTS DESCRIBE HIM?
Devotion to one's parents is considered proper behavior for any samurai, but devotion can be offered without any real respect between parent and child. Does the character have a proper relationship with his parents or are they estranged? Was the character's upbringing a source of joy or dismay for his parents? Are they still alive, or were they taken from the character at a younger age?
18. WHAT IS YOUR CHARACTER’S HIGHEST AMBITION?
Desire is a sin, but ambition tempered by duty is considered acceptable among most in the samurai caste. Bushi often aspire to become military leaders, for example, while courtiers desire nothing more than to rule over others at influential courts. What is the character's ultimate goal and, perhaps more importantly, how far is she willing to go in order to accomplish it?
19. HOW RELIGIOUS IS YOUR CHARACTER?
He is very devoted he beliefs he exists merely by the good Graces of the fortunes and the emperor  and because of his faith he seeks to redeem and restore his position in the  celestial wheel
20. HOW WILL YOUR CHARACTER DIE?
Well his death would come about through medical intervention of an ally or maybe even an enemy.
Background:
His story starts in the Mantis clan civil war and it is wear he was sent to study and seal  an agreement of having the Tsi smiths well-crafted weapons supporting the followers of Yoritomo, Kumiko by a marriage but before the marriage came about to a Tsi, Ayame he would have to live amongst the Oriole clan and be instructed in their ways. When he completed his training and actually in his time with the Oriole clan fell in love with his bride. Though due to the chaotic  times of the Mantis civil war the clans politics lead to his wife’s death  and his failure to save his wife medical and not even try to go after her assassin and the destruction of the treaty between the Mantis and Oriole clan. He was casted into a life of a ronin and since then has spent his days as a wondering physician accompanying the commoners on trips to sell their wares at various festivals or whatever other long journeys might require a physician on hand and this would be no different with the upcoming winter festival he would be traveling with a family looking to sell their wares and it was his job to help keep them healthy and he would even aide in negotiations when necessary as he was a courtier once upon a time.
