Bouishi Kasuga was the Ancestral Sword of the Tortoise Clan.

Crafted Edit

The blade was created when Hantei Muhaki directed Tortoise Clan Champion Kasuga to have a new blade made for himself. Kasuga, formerly of the Agasha family, used his old contacts to obtain high-quality metal and had the finest craftsmen forge a new daisho. [1]

Kasuga's Eye Edit

Kasuga presented the blades to Muhaki, who was impressed with their quality and named the katana Kasuga's Eye. Kasuga gave Muhaki the wakizashi in symbol of the Tortoise' complete service to the Emperor. The wakizashi sat next to the Emerald Throne until after the death of Toturi I. It was later claimed by Hantei Naseru, who kept it in his estate. It was not known what happened to the blade after Naseru was made Emperor. [1]

Powers Edit

The katana was one of the finest blades ever forged. It made its wielder somewhat lighter on his feet and dealt greater damage to those who violated Imperial Law. It could only be drawn by one of Tortoise or Imperial blood. [1]

The wakizashi was of the same quality of the katana, and would only open for Tortoise or Imperial samurai. It had but one power, its bearer might at any time see what the katana's wielder was doing. [1]
