After the Akodo were disbanded the new Lion Clan Champion Matsu Tsuko commanded that the Daggers be found and destroyed in the presence of the Emperor. One of them was in the hands of the outcast Toturi the Black, another with Akodo Kage, and another was known to be held by the family of Akodo that ended when Akodo Ginawa was cast out from the clan. [2]

Morikage Toshi Edit

In 1132 a spy from outside the Mantis Clan gave to Yoritomo an Akodo Dagger, to help him to find the Hidden Emperor. Yoritomo gave Tsuruchi the dagger. [5] The spy supposed to be a kolat, and the dagger the one from Kage. [6]

Much later was known the location of all the daggers. One dagger was still in the hands of the Kolat Master Kage. Another was in the possession of the Lion Champion Matsu Nimuro. When Nimuro was egged the False Nimuro also coppied the dagger but without its powers. Kaneka, Toturi's son, had had a third, willed to him by his sister Toturi II after her death, and his dagger was in the possession of the Phoenix following his death at Toshi Ranbo in 1169. Heigai, formerly Akodo Ginawa, had the fourth while the fifth was supposed to have been in the possession of the head of the Brotherhood Tanari. [4]
