Wicked Is As Wicked Does

Akane is a newly-minted Gunso in the Ito army. Akane earned her rank by following orders no matter how callous, wicked or loathsome and if anything, she revelled in allowing her cruelty to come to the fore.


Veteran warriors in the Ito clan who achieve Gunso status receive spears to recognise this achievement. Ito weaponsmiths fashion these lethal weapons with wicked barbs designed to do heinous amounts of damage going in and coming out. Built to lacerate, disembowel and butcher enemy soldiers by causing truly horrific wounds. Akane, ever known for her cruel and sadistic behaviour on the battlefield, delights in using her newly awarded spear to impale her foes on the end of it, then enjoys standing back to watch them die. Even the soldiers under her control stay out of her way as there is just no telling where Akane stops, and her cruelty begins. Ito players will delight in using the BLOOD OF OROCHI trait to give her weapon POISON. This means even a single point of damage in melee will more than half kill most models in the End Phase, even a Minimoto Samurai. Akane is almost undoubtedly useful in any Ito list.
