Shikibu no Oni 2


Shikibu no Oni appeared as a squat, orange tanged dwarf with a bright blue beard and piercing green eyes. [1]

Powers Edit

Shikibu no Oni and its spawn had the ability to possess the bodies of humans, which, after a few days, leaved the body a burned out husk and allowed the Shikibu to move on to other targets. [2] Shikibu no Oni raided tombs and graves for the bodies of the recently deceased. He had the ability to twist the flesh of dead bodies to match their forms. [1]

History Edit

Creation Edit

Following the death of his wife, Hiruma Shikibu asked his Kuni cousin to summon an Oni. Shikibu asked the oni to bring back to life his late wife, Hiruma Hiruko. The Oni agreed to do so, but instead took the appearance of the wife and pretended to be her long enough to consume the soul of Shikibu. Shikibu no Oni then took the appearance of Shikibu until it ended with a magic duel between the Oni and it's summoner ended in the death of the cousin. Shikibu no Oni, now free, was able to escape to the Shadowlands. [3]

Alliances Edit

During the Four Winds Era, Shikibu no Oni allied itself with Daigotsu following the exile of the Kyoso no Oni, purely out of fear and in order to protect its spawn and its link with the mortal realm. [4]

Hiruma Castle Sieged Edit

In 1159 Shikibu no Oni besieged Shiro Hiruma, trying to lure Crab forces from the Kaiu Wall to weaken it. Hiruma Masagaro made Hida Kuon promise not to send troops. [5] The Crab Clan received aid from Crane forces led by Daidoji Rekai instead. [6]
