Jadoku, the Ancestral Sword of the now-defunct Snake Clan, was gifted along with a matching wakizashi to Snake Clan Champion Isawa Chuda by the Emperor himself. After discovering that his wife was a maho-tsukai, Chuda fled his clan, taking only the wakizashi (whose name has been lost to history) with him and leaving Jadoku with it. [1] [2]

Recovered Edit

Jadoku was last seen in the Empire in the early days of the Clan War, when Reikado, a ronin descendant of Isawa Chuda and Chuda Tenkazu, a powerful Bloodspeaker living among the Asako family, met in battle. The resulting conflict almost destroyed the Falcon Clan and ended with Tenkazu reuniting the daisho after Reikado fled. Neither blades have been seen since. [3]

Reikado was the keeper of the wakizashi and before his death gifted it to Utagawa, a Phoenix sword smither. Utagawa forged his own katana to match the exquiste wakizashi, became a ronin and dedicated her life to bringing Mishime to justice. [4]

Abilities Edit

Jadoku could store a spell, and additionally its wielder could cast a spell that poisoned the target. [1]
