Created by: Togashi Nyoko
First used by: Unknown
Currently in the possession of: Dragon Clan

Courage was a katana forged by Togashi Nyoko, and one of the Five Swords of Legend. [1]

Appearance and Abilities Edit

Courage had a golden handle and an elaborate dragon design racing down the steel in gold. It was known to protect its wielder against the influence of fear, but it had a drawback: resisting a samurai who tried to flee a battle, regardless of the odds. [2]

History Edit

Lost Edit

In the 6th century the blade was wielded by Hida Yuukan. It was lost when he and his charge where killed in the Shadowlands. [2]

Recovered Edit

Somehow the katana had been lost to the Shadowlands. In 1128 during the Battle at Shinden Osano-Wo the samurai-ko Togashi Miyoki retrieved Courage from the hands of an undead monster, [3] returning it to the Dragon Clan. [2]
