Death Edit

Chizaro no Oni 2

Usiina's death

In 1120 he was attacked inside the Inn of the Orange Blossom by Chizaro no Oni alongside his charges Doji Juzo and Doji Usiina. Anitano was quickly killed and Usiina also died from wounds taken in the fray. [3]

Sword Edit

The sword he found in the Shadowlands could be the item the oni was seeking. [2] It was the Blade of Secrets, a powerful nemuranai with the power to kill an oni. The blade had been stolen by Togashi Ikyoto, an ise zumi who owed a debt to Whisper, a city merchant, who had the blade. [4]

After death Edit

A group of bandits attacked the crematorium where his corpse would be burnt, but the assailants were defeated by a group of samurai. [5]
