Blond Hair

Recommended Posts

About the blond Cranes in the artwork:

1. Are they bleached or natural?

2. Does it any cultural significance, like high fashion or bravery or something?

3. Is this uniquely a Crane custom, or does every have a few blond samurai?

4. Can peasants go blond, or is that presumptuous?

Yeah, it should be white. To represent Doji Haiaku, Lady Doji and Kakita son who spent 3 years in the Shadowlands looking for his sister, the Crane Thunder. He didn’t find her but he rescued her sword. He returned with his hair completely white and mute. Lady Doji gave him a new name Daidoji, responsible for defending the Doji.

1- Mostly bleached, sometimes occurs naturally.

2- Already answered. It's in honour of Doji Hayaku, son of Doji and Kakita, brother to Yasurugi and Konishiko, the first Daidoji.

3- Crane custom. As the clans intermarry there may be a few instances of samurai in other clans with naturally occurring white hair. Also I would assume vitiligo occurs in Rokugan. Depending on where you feel your Unicorn may have travelled flat out blondes wouldn't be out of place with the Unicorn. The other non standard hair that occurs in Rokugan is red and red-brown that tend to appear among the Kitsu and Matsu.

4- Your Rokugan, you decide. Personally I like to have sumptuary laws and would treat a commoner doing that as acting above their class, with all the possible consequences that may incur being on the table.
