Avalanche Guard

Avalanche Guard

Avalanche Guard, the First Phoenix Legion of the Shiba Army, [1] was an Elemental Guard unit composed by shugenja who studied earth magic [2] who did not mind delving into combat to perform their duties. [3] This legion of shugenja was attended by the Shiba Second Phoenix Legion, the Legion of Stone, who were specially trained to interact with that legion. [1]

Appearance Edit

With their skin toughened through the surges of magic, they appeared to be a company of rock-men. It was said that their wounds bleeded mortar and volcanic embers. [4] The commander of the Avalanche Guard usually wore Ouno's Heart, a suit of Heavy Armor crafted by Isawa Ouno, the first Master of Earth and brother to Isawa himself. [5]
