Long ago in a time of strife and waring clans there existed only one truth, death. This was a time when warriors fought massive wars for land and virtually every stone was soaked in blood. The battles had become so prevalent that children were born just so they could be raised to die on the front lines.
It was in this time of bloodshed a god was born amoungst men. It is said that when he was born he fell from his midwife’s hands, stood up on two legs, and said “I am Bishimonten, and I shall purge the world of its greatest affliction!”
Bishimonten was said to have grown to a full man in a single week and raised a great army to stand behind him. He wielded a great spear in one hand and held a mysterious Pagoda in the other (this was rumored to be the source of his power). It was said that when he steped onto the battlefield the elements would bend to his commands and the very souls of his enemies would shake in fear. He could fell an entire flank of an army with a single swing of his great spear, Vessavana.
He quickly conquered any land he attempeted to lay dominion over and continued to claim that he would rid the world of its “greatest affliction”, many assumed this affliction was war. But when he was asked by a monk of his order what this affliction was he replied “humanity”.
Once the other clans heard his desires they became panics and quickly rallied behind the three strongest clans. The Uchiha, the Kaguya, and the Zetsubo. These great clan leaders wielded three legendary weapons forged by the Gods themselves. A great sundering sword with nine rings of power, a mantle with five jewels of wisdom the bestowed its wearer magical powers and a ringed staff that protected its wielder from all harm.
These clan leaders led the remainder of all the humans against the great warrior god and defeated him and his twisted demonic soldiers.
After Bishimonten was defeated he promised each of the heros a gift from his pagoda, the source of his power. The Zetsubo clan leader was the first to speak; he asked of Bishimonten his power! “As you wish” he said and so it was. The Zetsubo’s arms turned jet black and pained him as he could feel the infinite power of the elements passing through them and he could no longer hold the ones he loved without ripping their very souls from their bodies. The secound to speak was the Uchiha, thinking himself a wise man he asked of Bishimonten his insight. “Your wish is my command” he spoke and so it was. The Uchiha’s eyes changed and a thrid opened upon his brow, he gained perfect insight into the world but could no longer be blissfully ignorant or happy again. The final hero, the Kaguya hessitantly asked Bishimonten for his great resiliant form and health. “As you say” he nodded and so it was. The Kaguya’s body become as hard as stone and his bones like the strongest iron. But he could no longer move himself, his body was too powerful and unmoving the walk and thus was doomed to spend the rest of his immortal life as an unmoving ruler of the Kaguya.
With the three warrior’s wishes granted he layed on the ground with no arms, eyes, or bones and looked beaten and broken. He looked at the heros and said, “with these gifts I curse you forever as, Shinobi” and with that his body was imersed in light and turned to dust. the warriors then hid the great pagoda and Bishimonten’s spear Vessavana away so no future generations could make the same mistakes they had made.
