Destiny's Anvil was the trademark obsidian armor wore by Goju Kyoden, the first Obsidian Champion. It was named by Daigotsu after his yojimbo sacrificed himself to return the Dark Lord to life. [1]

Appearance Edit

The armor appeared almost chitinous and organic when viewed askance, but when regarded directly it appeared to be of stone. The armor was fueled by kansen, as well as a small fraction of the Nothing. The taint of the wearer was harder to spot than normal, and he was resistant to non-crystal magic. [1]

Kyoden's Return Edit

When Daigotsu sought to release Fu Leng's soul from Meido during his attack on Otosan Uchi, Kyoden stood guard over the ritual and was slain by the Lion Clan Champion Matsu Nimuro. When Daigotsu approached the Shadow Dragon to bargain for Kyoden's return, the Dark Lord offered a small bit of his own soul. Kuoden's armor was the physical object required to call him from the Nothing. In this way Kyoden returned to life as a whole being. [2]
