Overpowered L5R Character

Related to my previous post Gone With the Winds, here's a rank 5 daughter of Toturi I wrote up.  She just barely squeaked in at 225 Insight.  She cost 303 xp, which is more than the 275 for a standard starting rank 5 character, and just under the 275 + 30 points of free advantages I was willing to give myself.  Also compare to Akodo Kaneka or Toturi Tsuado… either of them would absolutley MURDER me in a duel, although I'm pretty sure I could take one of them in a skirmish, but it would be hard fought and messy.

(Note:  Her initiative is 15k5.  (Or does that translate to 10k10?)  In light armor, her TN to be hit is 39, +20 vs. those with lower initiative, +5 vs. wounded enemies.  If you attack her and miss, she gets four free raises against you.  She also calls her real raises after the attack roll- up to six with Kenjitsu, and can get up to three more free raises from Bishamon's Blessing.  Your best bet is to call her out to a duel before she can start a skirmish and cut you to ribbons.  Either that, or become her loyal retainer.)
