Ameiko Kaijitsu is the proprietor of the Rusty Dragon, one of the most popular taverns in Sandpoint. She is a member of the town’s small council. Ameiko is the eldest daughter of Lonjiku Kaijitsu and Atsuii Kaijitsu, and half-sister of Tsuto Kaijitsu. Now that Tsuto and both her parents are dead she is alone in Sandpoint. Recent events have shown to her the very human failings of her family, and she must now make peace with this.

As well as the duties of the Rusty Dragon, Ameiko must now find some way of dealing with the glassworks that she has inherited. The Sandpoint glassworks is Sandpoint’s most famous business, and responsible for much of the trade in and around the town. Sandpoint will be much diminished if the glass works are not brought back to work as soon as possible.

Bolas has a gentle competition with her over different foods and drinks from around the world. Bolas thinks that Ameiko has come from further away (her family anyway), but he has better access to herbs and spices, no one is sure who has the edge, but finding out the winner will be very tasty!
