Possible Opponents[]


He was once a noble and honorable warrior living in the Far East, until he wore the armor, the cursed armor known as Hannya. From that moment on he became a slave to his own hatred and bloodlust, alongside the cursed armor, he wields the bloodsucking sword Kien. He lost all purpose, lost all will, and kill only for blood.

Bishamon wanders the land killing anyone foolish enough that cross paths with him, until Pyron descended on Earth. The overflowing energy of the alien being separated Bishamon from the armor, freeing the host from the cursed items. Bishamon later becomes a monk and guarded the cursed items. After learning of a strange realm known as Makai, he trained his mind and spirit in order to sense and make contact with the realm to seal the cursed items there for good.

But just as he was about to do so, Hannya and Kien started to thirst for blood once again, even without a host. It manifested the countless souls that it absorb and creates the form of Bishamon. But after they were reanimated, they were sucked into the Majigen, the demon dimension that Jedah created. However, before the armor was about to wreak havoc, Bishamon caught up to it and sealed it away.

Though, after the real Bishamon sealed the cursed items, he mysteriously disappeared. Rumors circulates that, Bishamon was consumed by the armor as he tries to seal it and bonded with him forever.
