Real Name: Masako Yoshida
Apparent Age: Mid twenties
Concept: Speaker for the Dead
Physical description: Masako is a delicate sylph of a woman, her height not even reaching five feet. She prefers to wear traditional kimonos of her station when entertaining, yet during her time as scourge she was known to sport more casual clothing. She keeps her black hair cut short to her chin, and her gentle features shift from an absent gaze to a charming smile.

Masako was a popular Geisha from the Gion Kōbu okiya in Kyoto, Japan. Her gifts as a medium manifested themselves at puberty, and her shrewd "Mother" took full advantage of this. Masako became a highly publicized Reibai (spirit medium) who would entertain as well as cast fortunes, attend shrine dedications and speak to dead ancestors.
She appeared out of nowhere in eastern Europe somewhere around the 1930's, and by the end of the Second World War was embraced by the Toreador Jasper Renfield of Bern, Switzerland. After her release from the Accounting she disappeared from the radar and re-emerged in San Francisco in the mid 1970's. She only remained in the U.S. for a few years before returning to Europe.
Masako has kept a rather low profile since her embrace, and was a citizen of Copenhagen, Denmark immediately prior her arrival to the United States. She has starred in a documentary film, Ghost Stories, which has earned her much acclaim as a Medium. It was released in 2010 with great success. She has been known to travel to domains that report "Wraith Trouble." (Fame 5: Medium)
In October 2011 Masako suddenly left her position as Sceneshal in Iowa City to return to Kyoto. She has remained there since.

- Masako really speaks excellent English, but it is known to degrade at whim. Especially if she thinks she is in trouble.
- Is very particular to differentiate the difference in pronunciation between her name and that of Her Fury, the Former Brujah Justicar Masako. She pronounces her name with a emphasis on the softer S sounds (Masa-ko), as indicative of the dialect of her native region.
- Was once given a pony as a gift from JP, the childe of Joseph Hanover.
- Served as a "humane" scourge for some time in Iowa City, and was highly effective. She resigned however fearing the toll it was taking on her humanity.
- Has an odd choice of "friends." Those whom she has been known to frequent the company of are either of very, very low humanity or are otherwise exceptionally creepy.
- Was once mauled by a five-hundred pound panther in her duties as Scourge.
- Don't ask her about the book "Memoirs of a Geisha." She will get grumpy.
- Is a "Friend of the Family" to the Giovanni, and spends way too much time with them.
- Hates to be touched.
- Shouldn't have taken the red pill...
- Was given Alabastor Haroukin's blue Rabbit mask.
- Introduced Archon Jack Kurlein to Anime. He was very confused.
