The Crane Game
Mid-level Mantis Bureaucrat
Taysuke represents the Mantis in matters not requiring the attention of Yoritomo Okichi or Yoritomo Ume. As a diplomat, he’s a hard-nosed, pushy negotiator that does well against the lesser lights on the Governor’s staff but is easily out-maneuvered by the Governor and his senior aides. Socially, Taysuke is completely different; he’s charming, friendly, and accomodating.
