Kettei was the final gift of Xing Guo, the Fortune of Steel, to the Crab Clan in 1167.

Hida Daizu Edit

The Lotus Sword of the Crab was given by the Jade Champion Asahina Sekawa to the Fortune of Persistence, Kisada, who entrusted it to Hida Daizu. Daizu discovered its considerable powers while battling several Oni. While the Oni instantly corrupted the jade which Daizu carried, his sword slew one of them with a single blow, and sent the rest fleeing in terror. [1] He relinquished it after being given another blade by Kisada. [2]

Kyofu Edit

In 1168 Hida Kuon gave it to Kyofu to wield during Kyofu's Last March. Kuni Daigo pledged to bring Kettei back to the Crab upon Kyofu's death. [3] Kyofu perished fighting the dreaded Kyoso no Oni, but the sword was brought by Hida Kengo to be borne safely back to the Crab lands by Daigo. [2]
