Saionji no Hana holds junior fourth rank in the court of the Son of Heaven, Hisahito-tenno, eighty-ninth Emperor of Japan, at whose behest she represents the people of his Empire and observes the ways of the people of the West Kingdom and other parts of the so called Known World. She is an accomplished poet and seamstress and dreams of returning to the gardens and palaces of The Storied Capital. 
Saionji Shonagon currently resides in the quaintly redundant Province of the Mists in the Principality of the Mists less than a day's pilgrimage on foot from the birthplace of SCA civilization. She has been a cosmopolitan citizen of the Known World since 1995, with ties to the East Kingdom and friends pretty much everywhere else, thanks to the non-medieval miracle that is the Internet. She was elevated to the Order of the Laurel in 2012 for her research into the arts and history of medieval Japan.
