History

See The Early History of the SilverStari.

After the newly settled Silver Stars Empire was settled and the people of Yu, like other kingdoms, turned more and more towards the kami for guidance and power. The virtues and code of bushido the Saving Gods had preached in the old land became corrupted, its spirit twisted. Yu, despairing that he had failed to save his people, took his own life with his guan dao.

The weapon was secreted in the Temple of the Sword by those who had still followed him, and once the Great Wall was built some time later the shrine itself ended up being some distance inside the Shadowlands. It was centuries before Hida Sang arrived to claim the Blade and bring the Angel of Courage back into the world.
