People

Daidoji Chutei was the younger son of Daidoji Tekigun, a nephew of and second in line of inheritance from the Daidoji Daimyo, Daidoji Uji. He was a young and self-admitted foolish samurai, who quested for Kotoku, the Ancestral Yari of the Daidoji family. He failed in his quest and entered into a monastery in shame. [1]

Childhood Edit

Chutei was insistent that he be remembered for great deeds, and at his gempukku announced his intent to quest for Kotoku. He spent much of his time following his declaration preparing for his quest, checking sea maps and tidal motions, conditioning his body for treasure diving, and finally completing his research. [1]

Victory and Failure Edit

Chutei found the precise location of the missing yari, southwest of the landbridge that connected Crab and Yasuki territories, along the Coast of Dark Mist. He sank into the waters and, although his sight left when he sunk into what he believed was tar in the water, he seized the yari with one hand and pulled his life-rope to have his retainers pull him to the surface. While his hand never left the spear, the spear did not rise with him; his arm had been severed at the shoulder, leaving a brown scar behind.

The tar he had been swimming in surrounded the body of Kinjiro no Oni, pinned to a rock by the spear and unable to reanimate itself, although still able to attack the young bushi. Almost immediately after his failure, Chutei entered the service of Shinsei. [1]

Kotoku's Fate Edit

The yari was eventually retrieved by the Crane in the second half of the 12th century. [2]
