Megumi, the Celestial Sword of the Crane was widely agreed to be the most beautiful of all the Celestial Swords. [1]

Crafted Edit

Megumi was one of the eight blades commissioned by Lord Sun from the Xing Guo, the Fortune of Steel, and given to the Clan Champions. [2]

Appearance and Abilities Edit

Its hilt and tsuba were worked in gleaming ivory bound in the finest blue silk. [3] The blade was made from the purest white steel, making it look as if the sword was sculpted from ice. Unlike the other Celestial Swords, Megumi enhanced its wearer's charisma and personality in addition to their abilities in combat. Wielded in a fight or sheathed in its saya, Megumi granted its wielder mastery over battlefield and the courts. [4]

First User Edit

It was given to Doji Kurohito, who initially refused to wield it, eschewing it in favor of the blade discovered on the day of his birth, Chukandomo. [1] After Doji Kurohito broke the curse of Chukandomo and gave it to Matsu Nimuro, Megumi had again been taken up by the Crane Clan Champion. Like the Ancestral Sword of the Crane, Shukujo, Megumi gave out a clear musical note whenever the true Crane Champion touched it. [5]
