Blood of the Empire
Desert Shadow Fangs
Large Fangs from an enormous desert cat
The fangs of the giant desert lion that blended into the sands like a shadow. It nearly killed Saseko, Kasuga Omura‘s companion in an ambush. Bayushi Kimanari extracted the teeth after the beast was decapitated and they were purified and blessed by Soshi Fuyusuke. The Scorpion gave one as a gift to Omura as a reminder of what his companion survived and the other to Ozaru, Yasuki Ashida’s servant, in recognition of his bravery in wrestling the great beast and saving Saseko from certain death.
