[2] Sakuno and Asako Yurito alongside Shiba troops, including his yojimbo Shiba Gojiko, were dispatched to do so. [1] The month after Yurito found the nemuranai. Believing that the Masters could not be trusted with the relic, he decided to destroy it by casting it into a pit of fire at the heart of the Shadowlands, the Amaterasu's Furnace. [3]

Return Edit

Crab forces and his Shadowlands allies led by Yakamo no Oni moved to intercept them, and only the escort of a Unicorn force of Battle Maiden and Moto Fanatics allowed the Phoenix to finish the quest, at the cost of their lifes.
