Yurei Chunin and Oni
It is said that the hammers borne by the Yurei Chunin were the very ones used to close the final links of chain that held the Yurei clan nobles to their battle barges when they were cast into the ocean. Cursed with the most vile hatred for the Ika, these weapons are as much symbols of that hatred as they are tools for revenge.
At the head of each boarding party was always the unit’s Chunin. Looking after the welfare of their soldiers, bravely leading from the front by example, the Chunin were exemplars of the Yurei code of honor. The same code of honor that has cursed them to follow their Lord into a purgatory of timeless service.
It would be wrong to say that the Yurei are automatons and without independent thought and emotion. But it is with more than a dozen lifetimes of contemplating their service at the bottom of the ocean that, as the time for action has finally come, they are more than willing to return to service and to the vision of their masters in the grand task of finally deposing the Moon Princess, and putting Kagejima under the rule of the Yurei banner forever.
Amongst the many warriors that were sent to the bottom of the sea during the Yurei rebellion. There were quite a few Oni from some of the outlying islands in the service of Lord Tomomori. Their strength was used to batter their way onto the Ika’s castle ships. It is of no difference now, as even in death, they are terrifying and powerful foes.
Armored in now rusted and moldered steel, these brutes still move with the speed and strength of their living years. Binding the will of these creatures is a great undertaking for any willpower, but it was only that the Oni understood that they were a part of a greater cause that kept them under the sway of the lords of the Yurei upon returning to their crusade above the waves.
So now, as rusted blades chop into enemies, and fish picked bones protrude from helmets and armor, the roar of battle is welcome after their long sleep in the silt and mud of forgotten seaborn battlefields.
