Ameiko Kaijitsu is best known in the town of Sandpoint as the proprietor of The Rusty Dragon, the most popular tavern in town. A member of the town’s small aristocracy, she is the eldest daughter of Lonjiku Kaijitsu and Atsuii Kaijitsu, and half-sister of Tsuto Kaijitsu.
When her younger brother’s questionable birth caused his ostracization from the family, Ameiko was the only person who visited him in the Turandarok Academy. Tsuto’s influence on Ameiko was notable, despite his near total absence from her everyday life, and an argument between the two siblings in 4701 during which he struck her prompted her abandonment of Sandpoint for a year of adventuring.
Ameiko returned to Sandpoint in 4702 for her mother’s funeral, and partook in another heated argument with her brother over his overstated opinion that their father had pushed Atsuii to her “accidental” death. It was not long after this dispute that Ameiko turned her back on her family and began her career as a tavern owner.
Ameiko Kaijitsu, owner of the Rusty Dragon, now has inherited the glassworks as well. In thanks to you for rescue, you have free room and board at her Inn anytime you are in Sandpoint.

4702 After a disastrous attempt to reconcile the bad blood between her half-brother and her father results in her brother striking her, Ameiko runs away from home shortly before the events of the “Late Unpleasantness” bring tragedy to Sandpoint. Atsuii Kaijitsu dies during these events of a mysterious fall from the sea cliff near her home.
4703 Word of her mother’s death causes Ameiko to return home, but she finds home as unpleasant as ever. Tsuto walks out on the family at the funeral, leaving Ameiko alone with her bitter father.
4705 Aged 16, Ameiko leaves home for the second time to take up life as an adventurer with several like-minded youths. Her adventuring career lasts just over a year.
4706 Rich from her adventuring success, Ameiko returns to Sandpoint to purchase an old tavern, “The Rusty Dragon,” and scandalizes her father by becoming a bartender and tavern keeper.
