Rise of the Runelords
short tempered owner of the Sandpoint Glassworks
Lonjiku is a middle-aged, irritable Tian-Min male. Though born in Magnimar, he is very concerned with traditional Minkai virtues and values, but also has a very short temper.
Unbeknownst to most of the folk of Sandpoint, Lonjiku had dealings with some of the Sczarni in town. Through sources unknown, his estranged ‘son’, Tsuto, found this out, and blackmailed his father into using his influence to make sure that the north town gate was unguarded and unlocked on the day of the Swallowtail festival, as well as making sure that the Glassworks were understaffed on that day.
Though Lonjiku did not know what Tsuto intended, he did not speak up after the festival. In fact, when Tsuto later attempted to extort money from him in exchange for not revealing his complicity, the Kaijitsu elder appeared to be willing to go along.
His body was found in the Glassworks, gruesomely sheathed in molten glass.
