It is very powerful as there isn't really a cost associated with keeping one of your characters in play virtually forever.  I would almost make it pay 1 fate to add a koku to a character you control.  You could then raise the starting fate to 7 and it shouldn't be that imbalanced.

Way of the Mantis

Philosophy

You may not include this card in your deck with another "Way of the..." card.

Interrupt: During the resolution of an event that costs any amount of fate lose 1 honor - reduce the cost of the event by 1 and you may spend one fate off of a Mantis Clan character to shuffle the event into its owner's deck instead of putting it into their discard pile.

 

Bushido

1 fate Lion event

Philosophy

Action: target your ready Bushi character  - Your ready Bushi character gains Sincerity, Courtesy, and Pride until end of turn.

True but thats why it's 6 fate. This in tandem with the concept that cards like Everyone Has a Price and Bribery have powerful effects but require you to discard koku from characters you control. So you can forgo ALL mantis/koku cards for the ability to keep ONE personality in play the entire game... tbh I haven't tested it so I'd be interested in the idea.

Also while I'm here...

Exquisite Tastes 2 Fate

Action: remove one koku from any number of characters - honor those characters.

"Honor and Glory seem to be pretty cheap these days"

-------

Force by Proxy 0 Fate[maybe 1 not sure]

Action: Target a participating character you control and remove one koku him - Send him home and reduce the province strength by his [mil] skill. You may remove a koku from him, then straighten him.

------

Stuff like this is what I imagine the Mantis doing.

Way to cheap, with Rebuild being a card this would need to cost at least 2 or 3 fate

In theory, I like the idea, but three things...
First, it would be thematically weird to play "gempukku" on any characters that are in the card game because we don't really have any child character cards. Furthermore, it would be especially weird to play this card on something like a Champion or Daimyo or the ilk. Maybe if it could only be played on a 0 or 1 cost character.

Second, 2 fate is way too much to pay for what is effectively a +1 and a trait which doesn't inherently do anything on its own. I would say it would be best to maybe compare this to the seals.

The problem is the traits are all not equal in value.  Shugenja is a very powerful trait and in certain decks opens many options, so a 2 cost is about right to add that to a character.   Courtier is also a very useful trait with the same effect so again a cost is likely not too far off (I'd likely price it at 1 fate).  The issue is Bushi is currently a massively under valued trait so is not worth the 2 fate.

I think I agree with Hobgoblyn, 2 fate seems like way too much. I can't think of a single shugenja-restricted card that I'd willingly pay 2 fate just to forego the restriction for. There miiiight be desperate times where a Cloud the Mind might get you there, but I don't think anyone would include it as a general game plan. And we can't forget that it costs another card to draw. It does have strong parallels to the seals, which have some useful combos to them, but aren't reliable and don't end up increasing the price of the card at all. For example, monks are hugely useful to Dragon, but the Seal is 0-cost, and Cavalry is more important than Shugenja to Unicorn, I believe.

As for the flavor of buffing an older, powerful character, you could make it an attachment with a restriction of attaching only to a character that you just played, like, "Reaction: When a character enters play under your control, attach this to that character from your hand." That way it's more of a historical trait for the character, rather than something that's just happening.

Against the Waves to be able to ready a tower on request is the main worry for Shugenja trait.  Couple that with the synergies in Phoenix for body guarding with Yojimbo and powering cards like Supernatural Storm and it could be problematic.
