Akeru no Oni 2

It was one of the two known Shadowlands creature that could use Void, although it must steal it from the surrounding area. It appeared as a giant insect, could only speak through telepathy, and was extremely moody. Akeru was the unofficial leader of the Terrors because of its wisdom and analytical skills. [2]

Combat Edit

The powerful Akeru no Oni could rip its victims from the Celestial Wheel, and the remnants of souls left behind after its most vicious attack were the lesser Elemental Terror of Void, the Kukanchi. [1]

Creation Edit

In 1126 [3] the Terrors were created by the collaboration between all four Dark Oracles even an Oni of the Void, living in a dead volcano bear the Festering Pit known as the Womb of Terror. [4]

Attack to the Nezumi Edit

This year the nezumi Crippled Bone Tribe were nearly destroyed by the Elemental Terrors. [3]

Elemental Nemuranai Edit

In 1127 the Celestial Dragons blessed the Elemental Nemuranai, five powerful nemuranai which were crafted to restore the unbalance in the Celestial Order made by the creation of the Terrors. Akeru no Oni alongside the Terror of Air, Kaze no Oni were sent to destroy Daikoku Seido in the Unicorn lands. Within the shrine the Mempo of the Void and the Armor of Earth were resting, and they would be corrupted if the Dark Oracles could get them. A group of samurai managed to defeat the demons. [5]
