Dutiful Disciple Shugenja
Some ronin shugenja are fortunate enough to find a sensei to help them along. This might be another more experienced ronin shugenja, or even a sympathetic shugenja of the Great Clans; some priests consider it blasphemous to ignore the gifts of the kami and will teach anyone who they judge can cope with the burdens and responsibilities of priesthood.
