Bio:

Ameiko is the estranged daughter of Sandpoint aristocrat Lonjiku Kaijitsu. Her father had a very strict view of the role of women in society, but Ameiko would have none of it. She joined a band of adventurers when she was seventeen, and amassed a small fortune in the four years she was on the road. When she returned, she’d found that her father had essentially disowned her, so she bought the failing Rusty Dragon Inn in her hometown, and turned it around to become the most popular tavern in the area. She always gives discounts to people who can tell a good adventure story. She doesn’t perform much anymore, but occasionally gets talked into playing a song or two, accompanying herself on the cittern. She is a close friend and confidante of the Elven ranger Shalelu Andosana.

She is one of Halaea’s friends, and Halaea’s only formal bard trainer.
