Major Forces: Celestial Heavens inhabitants,

Fu Leng
Battles of Rokugan

After his release from imprisonment in Meido by Daigotsu in 1159, Fu Leng found himself unable to take out his anger upon the mortals in Rokugan, so he began an assault against the Celestial Heavens instead.

Fortress of Thunder[edit | edit source]

The Celestial Order was in serious jeopardy, so the Oracles of Light had to withdraw from Ningen-do. Before they departed, they got together to create an Elemental Nemuranai. The position of Oracle of Thunder was still empty, but in a move that surprised even the Celestial Heavens, the former Oracle of Thunder and current Dark Oracle of Void Tonbo Toryu demanded the right to contribute his blessing. For his previous sacrifices, he was granted the right. The resulting nemuranai was the Fortress of Thunder. [1]

Oracle of Void Intervention[edit | edit source]

In 1160, the assault continued further into the heavens, and Daigotsu's power seemed to grow each day. The balance in the universe was so tilted that the Oracle of Void Isawa Kaede was able to return to Rokugan to guide her children. She told them that the key to stopping Fu Leng was Daigotsu, as the worship of Fu Leng by the Lost is what was making him stronger. The Lost also believed in Daigotsu, and if he was to be defeated, their faith in Fu Leng would be shattered. This knowledge led to the Four Winds March. [2]

Connection with Daigotsu Severed[edit | edit source]

The invasion was halted when the words of Hantei Naseru tricked Fu Leng into distrusting Daigotsu, whose faith was the source of Fu Leng's power. [3] Taking advantage of this moment of weakness, Bishamon deprived Fu Leng of the Emma-O's Spear, and Hoshi pushed him back to the gates of Tengoku. Fu Leng was once again confronted by the Seven Thunders and decided to retreat. [4]

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Despite of that the assault still continued in 1165. [5] The assault was instrumental to succesfully cast the Last Ki-rin's sacrifice ritual, enacted by Iuchiban. He used the blood of failed true heroes, the Seven Thunders, being Fu Leng the monster they fought so valiantly destroying roams the Spirit Realms once more. The ritual provoked the Rain of Blood, who allowed Iuchiban to be at the peak of his power defying humans and Gods with his power. [6]

Known Deaths[edit | edit source]

Several lesser Fortunes were consumed by Musaboru no Oni. [7]
