Twenty-Seven Days of Darkness

Twenty-Seven Days of Darkness

Amaterasu Flees Edit

In 1132 with the death of her husband Onnotangu at the hands of Hitomi, Amaterasu fled the Celestial Heavens, and angered by what the humans had done she ordered the Kami Shinjo to collect the Ancestral Swords and scattered them to the heavens. With the disappearance of Lady Sun Rokugan was shrouded in total shadow, increasing the power of the Lying Darkness tenfold. [1] It soon became apparent that Onnotangu was just a pawn.

Burning Sands Edit

In the Burning Sands the Twenty-Seven Days of Darkness also began. It was after the Awakening and the death of the immortal Caliph Hanan Talibah. [2] Shilah the Sun, and Kaleel the Moon fled the sky, which allowed their son Kaleel to roam free again in the world, [3] a jinn lord who had been imprisoned in the Black Earth since the Day of Wrath. With the aid of the Kaleel's Legion they confronted other ancient powers on the Sands for the control of these lands. The Lying Darkness moved to undo the world. [4]

Hitomi's Travels Edit
