Isawa Kakusu-Sakana the Hiding Fish, was a monk and Maho-tsukai member of the Bloodspeaker Circle of Five until Iuchiban's second escape. [1]

Appearance Edit

Kakusu was a thin, pleasant-faced man who wore the orange monk's robes. [2]

Bloodspeaker Edit

Kakusu was a boy with a remarkable memory who learned the Bloodspeaker creed from his father and become the leader of the local Bloodspeaker cell even before his gempukku. He had a younger sister also initiated as Maho-tsukai. When his father passed on he took the vacated seat on the Circle of Five. He was given to bullying lesser cultists and interrogated viclims, as well as the cult's chief librarian and information broker. He discovered the way to the true Tomb of Iuchiban. [3]

Sensei Edit

Since his gempukku he remained secluded in a monastery, [4] but he later moved to the Monastery of Quiet Earth, where he taught a young Asako Henshin, Asako Kinuye. [5]

Crab lands Edit

In 1120 when Kakusu-Sakana knew Asahina Yajinden had gathered the Four Masks of Iuchiban, he slaughtered the monks in his monastery and journeyed south to meet up with his companions, Fushiki, Shinko Kamiko, and Yajinden in the guise of an Emerald Magistrate called Meishozo Nisei, were at Kami no Okasan. They met a group of samurai who would investigate the brutal murder of Isawa Kinto, who had been murdered by the Bloodspeakers. [6]

Oni summoning Edit

Kakusu-Sakana summoned an oni from Jigoku, Kakusu-Sakana no Oni, to use it as a distraction for the Imperial Guards who watched the area near the Tomb of Iuchiban. While the demon was being destroyed Yajinden's group was able to slip through the perimeter without being detected. [7]
