The Battle of Sorrow's Road was fought in 1126 in the Badger lands, in an attempt to stop the rampage of Hideo no Oni.

Battle Edit

Hideo no Oni had burned several villages, and slaughtering as it went. The Badger Clan forces set themselves against it, joined by a small handful of ise zumi and a few Shinseist monks. They eventually settled into a campaign of constant harassment, repeatedly engaging the oni, only to fade away as it retaliated. A last stand was made by the Badger Clan Champion Ichiro Kosho at Shiro Ichiro. The oni razed the castle to the ground and all present were killed to a man. [1] The Badger Champion appeared nailed to a post, legs torn from his body. [2]

Freedom and Fealty claims that Kosho killed the oni in his dying breath, which is in contradiction with the turn of events described in Way of the Shadowlands, which in addition named the Badger Champion as Ichiro Chuga. Oni no Pikachu (talk) 15:30, March 16, 2014 (UTC)
