Rise Of The Ronin: Fumi Sugi Bond Guide

«I just wish they would let me help them too. Do I look so frail and useless, I wonder…»

Rise Of The Ronin: Fumi Sugi Bond Guide

One character from Rise of the Ronin who deserves more credit is Fumi Sugi. At the beginning of the campaign, she's introduced as Shoin Yoshida's sister and Genzui Kusaka's wife. Yet, despite her relationship with the anti-shogunate cause, the men in her life encourage her to stay out of the conflict, fearing for her safety. Then, she is taken hostage by the Blue Demon.

Watching Fumi Sugi succumb to the "damsel in distress" trope feels stale. If you take the time to know her, you'll learn that Fumi is an intelligent, intuitive, and courageous individual who can think and act for herself. Check out our bonding guide to see Fumi's transformational character development firsthand.

Where Can I Find Fumi Sugi?
