Character Information


People have a lot of assumptions when it comes to trolls. Strong, mean, ugly. Sanjuro's bubbly personality and naivety can quickly toss a wrench into those preconceived notions. Most are quick to double take when they see a trog in a kimono walk by.


Take down the Troll Killers

Make a name for herself as a legendary swordswoman

Collect the full vintage Sim-set of the 'Shadowed Blade of the Rising Rooster' series


Tacha Deersborn was a lonely kid, spending her time going through old samurai sims instead of socializing. Didn't help she was the only trog in her neighborhood. When her mother was gutted by the Troll Killers, she took off with the savings, eventually meeting Auntie Amelia and learning of the wonderful and dangerous world of shadowrunning. A place where she could make a living swinging around a katana and no one would bat an eye? Sounded like a dream come true.

Narrative Significant Qualities


Special Modifications + Prototype: Sanjuro has a heavily modified, vintage nodachi, styled after the weapon used in 'The Samurai Trog of Shichijo'. It's appearance took a drastic change after peeling the black armor off the Renraku jarheads and forging it into the blade. It's a large, black weapon that seems to draw light into it.

Agile Defender + Shoot First + Perfect Time: Sanjuro is quick on her feet and very fast, especially for a troll.

Nasty Trog + Tough as Nails - Sanjuro is tough. Troll tough. Being a troll who refuses to fucking die scares some people!

Strive for Perfection - Breathe in. Breathe out. Focus on the Blade. It's an exension of the body. Of the soul. Put your entire being into the cut. Your blade must becoem a blade that is cutting, you hand: a hand that is cutting, your body: a body that is cutting, your mind: a mind that is cutting. Become one with the blade, Sanjuro.

Sensei (Blades, Black Samurai) - The super normal and nice dude with cool adepts powers is teaching Sanjuro sword moves! He's probably not a former serial killer or anything weird.


Emotional Attachment: She won't give up that katana. It's vintage!

Distinctive Style: It's easy to remember a troll wearing a straw hat.

Lack of Focus and Poor Self Control (Thrill Seeker): She has ADHD

One Born Every Minute: She really trusts people, okay!

Auntie Amelia - Took care of her when her mother died. A sort of grandma to her.

Apex - After a run, Sanjuro became determined to make friends with the glum and socially awkward decker. What's even more surprising was that she somehoew suceeded. The two are very close friends and freuqently hang out to watch old ghibli trids.

Newt - Sanjuro was on the run where Newt nearly died sneaking into Black Chrysanthemum facility. Sanjuro really didn't see Newt as a horrifying frog creature and the two slowly became friends, with Sanjuro's kind words finally helping Newt break out of Raven's grasp. When Newt died in an explosion, Sanjuro was hit pretty hard.

Samsara - A close friend and sparring buddy

Black Samurai - Sanjuro's sensei in the way of the BLADE.

Skraacha +10 rep for saving Warboss and the gang from death-by-jarhead.

StarScreamers +1 rep for doing a Jack job

The troll killers

1 An old OLD flatvid by the same name.
3 A MeFeed channel of slicing stuff. It takes a drastic uptick in editing quality at about episode 1400. The troll doing the slicing's face is blurred.
6 Cyber-eye footage of Sanjuro getting thrown off an exploding truck after slicing the turret on top cleanly in two. The comments say it's edited. Seems to fight with a sword and wear styled Samurai armor. Not the brightest.

Shadow Community Table

Threshold Result
1 "Troll with a sword."
3 "She's weird, all bubbly and happy and stuff. You'd think she'd be fraggin' useless until she cuts a helicopter in half."
5 "Oh yeah, I know her. Claims to be some kind of samurai. Trusts easy, believes in the good of people, yadda yadda. Terrifying with a sword though."


Hikaru Misashi (Rating 5): An urban brawl player with cyberware, weapons and urban brawl licenses.




Straw Hat

Matrix Persona

A heightened, anime-ified version of herself. Kimono flows heroically in the wind, her katana is made of sunlight. Occasional aesthetic edits are swapped in and out. Made by Apex.
