Dark Oracle of Earth

Dark Oracle of Earth

The Dark Oracle of Earth was the dark mirror of the Oracle of Earth in Rokugan.

Demeanor Edit

The Dark Oracle of Earth was a silent being, manifesting itself only once every three or four centuries. Its voice was heard in the crashing of the rocks during earthquakes, and in the rumble of the hills before the explosion of the volcano. One of the more approachable of the Dark Oracles, the One of the Dark Earth lent its aid to some of the more insidious foes of the Empire over the years. [1]

First Appearance Edit

In 714 the Dark Oracle first appeared at Rokugan. The being encountered The Maw, and taught earth magic to the Oni Lord for two years. [2] The Maw launched its attack against the Empire in 716, using the gained knowledge to circumvent the walls of Hiruma Castle, leading in the Fall of Shiro Hiruma. [3]

12th Century Edit

The Oracle and the Nezumi Edit

The Dark Oracles created the Elemental Terrors in 1126, [4] and made the Womb of Terror, a dead volcano near the Festering Pit of Fu Leng, their home. [5] Te'tik'kir, a nezumi Nameseeker of the Crippled Bone Tribe, wished to unite the Nezumi into one tribe. When the leader of his tribe, Mat'tck, refused to go to war against the other tribes, the Nameseeker went to the Dark Oracles to foresee the future through the allowed question any mortal could bear to an Oracle. The Dark Oracle of Earth confirmed that if his tribe were at war with the rest of the tribes, the One Tribe would happen. After Te'Tik'kir returned he found Crippled Bone at war all around, fighting of Oni and Elemental Terrors. [6] The surviving nezumi retreated north of the Black Finger River and claimed a new territory within Shadowlands lands. [7] In 1127 the Terrors attacked again, [8] [citation needed] being Mat'tck killed in the battle. The Dark Oracle of Earth appeared and told Te'Tik'Kir that the Nezumi would indeed become One Tribe, united in death. The Nameseeker killed the Dark Oracle after a fierce battle. [6]

Elemental Nemuranai Edit

This year the Oracles of Light decided to counteract their corrupted counterparts, bringing together Asako Shingon and Iuchi Yogosha to create a set of Elemental Nemuranai. The Oracles rested knowing the balance had been achieved. [9] The Dark Oracles sent the Terrors across Rokugan to seize the blessed nemuranai, but in every attempt they were defeated. [10]
