Kanshi

Historical Kanshi (OOC)

A specialized form of seppuku in feudal times was known as kanshi ("death of understanding"), in which a retainer would commit suicide in protest of a lord's decision. The retainer would make one deep, horizontal cut into his stomach, then quickly bandage the wound. After this, the person would then appear before his lord, give a speech in which he announced the protest of the lord's action, then reveal his mortal wound.
