Rise of the Jade Regent
The owner of the local inn, The Rusty Dragon. An ex adventurer.
Ameiko Kaijitsu is the daughter of Longiku Kaijitsu (now deceased) and head of the Kaijitsu Noble Family.
After a fight with her half brother Tsuto several years ago, Ameiko left Sandpoint and became an adventurer. No-one (at least locally) knows what happened to her while she was away, but she came back a haunted woman.
With the proceeds from her time away she purchased the Rusty Dragon and ran it successfully. Much to the chagrin of her father.
After the goblin attack she became friendly with the party, extending to them free room and board for a week.
Her brother Tsuto contacted her asking for her to meet him at the family glassworks. Here he asked Ameiko to join him in destroying Sandpoint. Recoiling in horror, she refused. Tsuto had her beaten and confined in one of the basement rooms.
She was rescued from the glassworks by the party, but has had a hard time emotionally as Tsuto had her father killed, and Tsuto himself will likely be put to death once he has stood trial in Magnimar.
