Few know of the newest leader of the Eastern Temple who took the position from the very popular REVEREND CHARLIE a few years ago. It is known that he carries the Tambo of Authority formerly wielded by OSAMU NISHIMURA (西村修). Who has not been seen in years. Many speculate that the arrogant and violent Takahashi killed the Tambo’s former master but there is no evidence to substantiate that rumor. Takahashi leads the Tora Sagami clan. They dispatch threats to the Conclave of Emerald with zeal. Whether those threats are real or not is a point of some contention.
