Fire Breathers

The Fire Breathers were siege weapons that threw fireballs with catapults. [1] Several of them were stationed along the Kaiu Wall. [2]

Ammunition Edit

The fireballs were a smaller version of the Hekireki Kakyu in a manner similar to a grenade. Small ceramic spheres were filled with pitch, topped with a fuse, and either thrown or launched using flexible bamboo poles. They were very unstable, and were apt to detonate when their wielder was struck in combat. If a fire bomb was ever exposed to open flame, it exploded immediately. [3]
