Talisman of Jigoku
Created by: Ryoshun
First used by: Kaiu Taru
Currently in the possession of: Unknown

The Talisman of Jigoku was one of the Gifts of Ryoshun crafted by the Tenth Kami Ryoshun from the essence of Jigoku. [1]

Appearance and Abilities Edit

The talisman was a kabuto that caused its wearer to be favored by Tainted creatures, thus unassailable by them. [2]

Kaiu Taru Edit

It was first given to Kaiu Taru in 1170, who Ryoshun found worthy of his blessing. He had to choose to be a follower for either the Voice of the Jade Sun or the Voice of the Obsidian Moon. The nemuranai would aid Taru during his service to the Voice. Taru became a servant of Kakita Kensho-in, the bearer of the Hand of the Obsidian Dragon. [1]

Death Edit

Taru was wielding the nemuranai during his confrontation with the Rakshasa General who led the Destroyer army. It is unknown what became of the Talisman after Taru's death when he sacrificed himself to badly wound the Rakshasa by exploding a jade-gunpowder storage room. [3] The Kuni Daimyo Kuni Kiyoshi ordered to find the Talisman, which he supposed had not been destroyed. [4]
