The Sword of the Emerald Champion was one of the symbols of the Emerald Champion's office, and served to reinforce his sense of justice and loyalty to the Emperor. [1] It was one of the most ancient katana of the Empire. [2]

Crafting Edit

The first official Emerald Champion, Doji Hatsuo, summoned a contest to bestow his favor to the swordsmith who could supply him with the greatest blade. Three of the Empire's greatest blacksmiths forged and presented each one a sword. The first tested his blade splitting a huge bulder in two. The second sliced a flying petal in two. The last, a cunning young woman named Ashidaka, kicked a cherry tree, and none of the falling leaves fell on the blade. Hatsuo selected the last, because its spirit was so strong, even the leaves knew to avoid the blade. [3]

Appearance Edit

The blade, which was of a green shade that appeared to shift constantly, was forged from the same steel that was used to reinforce the Emerald Armor. Its handle was covered with lustrous green silk. [1]
