Itokuri Information

"Pronounced "EE-toe COO-ree", this spider spirit is not content to merely protect people. It also likes to alter their
fates, taking them down a winding path on the way to their destination. As an example, many loathe
Matsunaga Hisahide for his villainy, while others remember him as one of the most cultivated gentlemen of
his generation. Either way, his influence was huge and far-reaching, though it remains unclear to what
extent an Itokuri was involved.

The Itokuri have particular fondness for treasures and historical items that have affected the fates of many.
Some people even venerate the Itokuri merely for a chance associate with such artifacts."
