The Kaijitsu Family
Lonjiku and his daughter Ameiko
The Kaijitsus are perhaps the richest family in town, which is extraordinary considering their Minkai origin. Lonjiku Kaijitsu, the head of the family, has carried on his father’s proud work as glassmaker, and the Sandpoint Glassworks is perhaps the town’s most prosperous business. Yet for all of his success at business, Lonjiku has found the role of father to be one he's particularly ill suited for.
His daughter Ameiko shamed him not only by becoming an adventurer, but also by opening and running a tavern and flophouse-“hardly women’s work,” he’s fond of telling anyone who’ll listen. Of course, those who know or work for Lonjiku know his short temper is his real problem.
Ameiko’s beauty is more than matched by her skill at music, and few are the evenings that pass without at least two or three songs being performed by the talented woman in the Rusty Dragon. When Ameiko left town a few years ago to become an adventurer, it scandalized her family enough. But when she retired from adventuring a year later, and returned to Sandpoint, she bought and renovated the Rusty Dragon-an act that only further scandalized and shamed her father.
Lonjiku lives alone in his manor. Only a few servants and errand boys stay with him. Ameiko’s mother died a long time ago, and since Lonjiku could not hold his animosity towards his daughter, she now lives in the Rusty Dragon.

Tsuto Kaijitsu
Lonjiku's shame
Tsuto was something of a scandal when he was born back in 4688 (a year before Ameiko). since he's a half-elf, it was obvious that old Lonjiku wasn't the boy's father, and his rage at the discovery of his wife's indiscretion was the talk of the town for months. Lonjiku's wife Atsuii never revealed who the father was , and it's a testament to Lonjiku's stubbornness that they remained married.
Tsuto was handed over to the Turandarok Academy to be raised outside of the Kaijitsu family, ignored by his father and forbidden visits from his mother. Ameiko learned about his existence at the age of 10, visiting him a few times a month to keep him company, bring him some food, and promise him that someday things would get all sorted out. That all changed in 4705, when they had a terrible argument in which Tsuto struck Ameiko.
No one knows what the argument was about, but whatever it was sent Ameiko away from Sandpoint for a year, during which time she made a living as an adventurer. She returned to Sandpoint a year later to attend her mother's funeral. Tsuto was quite public in his opinions that his mother did not commit suicide, rather it was his father who pushed her off the cliff to her death. During the funeral there was a confrontation. Lonjiku nearly broke Tsuto's jaw with his cane, after which Tsuto cursed him and left Sandpoint.
It seems that now Tsuto is back.
