Kotaru Mura was a village of the Crab Clan which was deserted during the Maw's invasion.

The Maw's Invasion Edit

The Maw raised an army in 716 the likes of which had not been seen since the days of Fu Leng, and marched upon the Crab. [1] Shortly after Hiruma Castle was conquered, Kotaru Mura was besieged by one of its lieutenants, Chizaro no Oni. [2]

Deserted Edit

The village's governor, Kaiu Haru, was a swordsmith who crafted two twin swords, the Blade of Truths and the Blade of Secrets, each tempered with powdered jade, to be used against the Oni. However, even the old master could not fully protect the swords from evil, and each sword was born with a curse, a twist to lead a foolish wielder to destruction. Haru died using the swords to destroy Chizaro, but his sacrifice let the villagers escape. [2]
