Makibesu is older than most, having lived through all of Toturi IX’s reign and being the Emerald Champion for over half that. Said to be the finest duelist since Kakita Toshimoko, he is surprisingly slow to ply his greatest skill. He is a stately gentleman trained in the honored tradition of the Kakita, though he has not smiled since the day his Emperor died. Who is to say if he will ever smile for the man who succeeds his best friend.
