Currently in the possession of: Unknown

Pincers and Tail was the favourite weapon of the Shosuro Daimyo Shosuro Yudoka.

Appearance Edit

The unique weapon was a long staff capped by a wicked blade in the shape of a pointed scorpion's tail on one end and a sharp claw on the other. It was a variation on the Ashalan khadja and was presented to Yudoka as a gift from Hojyn, an Ashalan sorcerer, for saving his life from a Goju Ninja. Some of Yudoka's favored agents carried imitations of the weapon. [1]

Name Edit

Yudoka named his weapon "Pincers and Tail," a reference to his Scorpion heritage. The name was also derived from his preferred technique when using the weapon, using one end to disarm an opponent and then delivering a quick follow-up attack with the other. [1]

Yudoka's Death Edit

After his death in 1168 the weapon was given to his sister Toku Inao by the Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Paneki when he brought her news of her brother's death. [2] [3]
