One day, when Bishamon
was human, he was looking around in an old antique shop. As if he was drawn in
by fate, his eye caught a piece of armor and a sword. It was at this moment
that he lost his own thoughts. When he finally regained consciousness, he
realized he was at his home. The armor and sword were sitting right beside
him. When Bishamon went back to the store to ask what happened, he found out
that he aggressively forced the owner to give the armor and sword to him.
Bishamon had no memory of this and none of this made sense to him. He stared
at the armor and the sword, and it felt meaningless to him.
Bishamon sat in front
of the armor for days, and his wife Orin began to worry about him. She asked
him to let go of the armor and sword, but Bishamon didn't seem to hear her.
About two weeks later, Bishamon was finally drawn to wear the armor. The
moment he put it on, he came back to his senses, but he realized that
everything was too late. He screamed with his last bit of strength,
"Run......Run, Orin!!" Bishamon's mind was full of hate and accursed
power. He had donned Hannya, the armor of hate and Kien, the blood sucking
sword. He went on countless days of killing as Hannya demanded more
Pyron's energies caused Bishamon to be separated from Hannya's curse. To make
up for his sins, he and his wife became priests/monks. The practice he had
started was called "Roppoudou," and gave its followers a strong mind
and would cleanse the mind and spirit. Traveling throughout Japan brought
peace to his heart again.
Several years later, he had stopped by an old temple. There, he found writings
about a separate dimension called "Makai". Within these writings
contained drawings depicting the armor, "Hannya", and the sword,
"Kien" and other creatures similar to those two in what seemed like
hell. Bishamon thought to himself, a careless person like himself may appear
again. He thought that he may not be able to make up for his sins, but he may
be able to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again. He had already
walked the path of darkness, he had nothing to fear.
To make contact with
this, "Makai" he secluded himself within a deep snowy mountain. He
sat down and held the Shakujou, or monk staff, and started to meditate. When
his spiritual strength had reached it's peak, he could see that of a different
world with the eye's of his heart. He was determined to seal Hannya at any
At the same time,
Hannya had started to thirst for blood once again. Even without having a
master this time, the armor and sword started to move again. They gathered all
the spirits around them to create a body and moved out to hunt Darkstalkers
and their blood. When Hannya and Kien moved out, they were sucked into the
Majigen. But before Hannya could kill, Bishamon had caught up to him and
sealed him away. After these events, Bishamon had disappeared and is thought
to have lead a peaceful life.
