Sword of the Righteous Emperor
Created by: Tsi Zutaka
First used by: Toturi III
Currently in the possession of: Unused at Kyuden Miya

The Sword of the Righteous Emperor was the sword first carried by Toturi III, and crafted by Tsi Zutaka. [1]

Oriole Clan Edit

Mirumoto Rosanjin brought Zutaka to the Imperial Court. Zutaka came bearing the blade of Hantei XVI, Toturi Naseru's sensei, which had been in his possession for a time. [2] Naseru was away, so the blade was presented to Empress Toturi Kurako, as well as a recounting of the Tsi's aide in defeating the bandits. [citation needed] Zutaka was given the Oriole's greatest honor, the commision to forge what would become the ancestral sword of the Toturi Dynasty, the Sword of the Righteous Emperor. [1] The Tsi were elevated to the position of Minor Clan, the Oriole Clan. [3]

Twharted Destiny Edit

The Sword of the Righteous Emperor remained buried deep in Kyuden Miya waiting a new owner. [4] Those who lingered near the sword for long were invariably overcome by great depression and sadness. The spirit of the sword, destined for legendary exploits, was anguished that its destiny had been denied, so it might become twisted with madness. The sword would attempt to drive its wielder to acts of glory, and it would be not satisfied until its wielder becomes Emperor. [5]

Sources Conflict
The sources relating to this article are in conflict with each other.
Fealty and Freedom page 136 claims the sword was not previous to the boom of the Oriole as new Minor Clan, in contradiction with Legend of the Five Rings; Third Edition Revised. Furthermore, it claims it was finished after Toturi III was already died, which does not match with the CCG card art itself.Oni no Pikachu (talk) 16:02, March 30, 2014 (UTC)
