Kijo no Kusari offered the blind samurai, Okami Takayama, the chance for sight, power, and an opportunity for his family to rise to dominance, as well as the intimacy only an oni can provide.  But instead of accepting all this, the wise samurai declines, taking what would become a lifelong wound as a result.

This is the second in our series chronicling the Temptation of Takayama in our Steel Shadows series.
