As a General in the Elemental Guard and Master of the Elements, Keitaro knows all spells that are not secrets of non-Phoenix shugenja families. He also has all of the Fire Spells mastered, and doesn’t need a scroll to cast any of them.


The returned Soul of Rokugan was one of the Phoenix shugenja that developed the technique for turning returned spirits back into mortals. He made a passing comment that it was remarkably similar to what “an old green-eyed friend once showed me.” Once the ritual was perfected, Keitaro was one of the first to be reverted back into a mortal man.

He now leads the Phoenix legion of Fire Shugenja into battle, wherever his clan needs him.
