Toritaka Noburiku grew up a happy child amongst the trees of the White Mountain in the Twilight Mountain Range. Early on Noburiku exhibited a gift of his heritage. His Great Great Grandfather was Kitsu Ryusuke, a Lion Sodan-Sanzo Spirit Speaker. Noburiku had the gift of spirit sight. The spirits lost on White Mountain were surprised to encounter a smiling boy who was willing to converse with them without judgement. Even as a child, Noburiku recognized there was an imbalance in the lost ghosts’ (yorei) harmony. Relaying this information to his father Inoki, Noburiku was fostered to his cousin Kitsu Misawa in hopes of securing his son an opportuity to train as a Kitsu Shugenja. The fostering lasted only one year and it was decreed Noburiku would not be trained as a Kitsu. Nobu returned to The White Mountain content with the decision and also carrying the katana of Kitsu Ryusuke, TeoToriatte. During the following winter court, Kuni Marufuji a Crab Shugenja accepted Nobu as an apprentice.
Nobu has completed his training as a Kuni Shugenja and has returned to his family’s home in the White Mountains ready to serve his Clan.
