Yamato no Orochi was a fabled creature, which appeared in a number of ancient Rokugani legends. Supposedly it was the “Eight-Forked Serpent,” an immense creature with eight heads and eight tails, rumored to be the first creation of Suitengu, Fortune of the Sea, who sent if forth to terrorize the open seas, angry at the rule of the Kami. Osano-Wo battled the deadly creature, subduing it and sending it deep beneath the waves. Some versions also credit the Yamato no Orochi with being the monster which Hida befuddled with sake. Asako Hiirono connected this myth with the creature of the Ivory Kingdoms known as Shesha. [1]
