Spouse: Kakita Chirumi

Doji Marutomo was a courtier of the Crane Clan.

Station Edit

Marutomo's uncle secured him a position in the retinue of Doji Gennai, the governor who administered the major trading port of Lonely Shore City. Marutomo was responsible for arranging entertainment for important visitors to the city. He earned the favor of one of these visitors, the merchant patron Daidoji Karazu, who commented favorably on Marutomo to the governor and the courtier was invited to the next Crane Winter Court at Kyuden Doji by his lord. Marutomo borrowed money from a heimin merchant to purchase a more stylish kimono. [1]

Married Edit

During a Kemari play at Winter Court he managed to amuse Kakita Chirumi, the daughter of an influential samurai with an estate outside of Shiro sano Kakita. She promised in marriage years ago, but her intended was recently killed in a skirmish with the Lion. He married to Chirumi and was transferred to the service of her Kakita lord, and Marutomo ends up handling the negotiations for samurai who sought special training as Doji Warrior-Poets. [2]
