The Shinku Akuma Kachi were low ranking infantry samurai who, according to legends, prayed to a demon that lived within the flames of burning buildings. It was their wish that the demon would grant them the strength and ability to burn across the field of battle. They continually grew stronger as they consumed their enemies. After victories they set structure fires to honor the Shinku Akuma for giving them victory in battle. A small force, they were feared by many clans who would rather pay them bribes to pass through their provinces without attacking any of their villages or castles.
The Shinku Akuma painted their yoroi red with accented black and yellow odoshi lacing to resemble the flames and ash that was left in the wake of their battles. The horned demon crest worn on their kabuto was even rumored to hiss and snarl at the enemy while in combat. This created a spirit of fear in all who faced off with these fierce warriors. Out of respect, our katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) will craft this armor with great care as to avoid the risk of upsetting the Shinku Akuma. This particular samurai suit features Kiritsuke Iyozane (simulated scale), sode (shoulder guards) and kusazari (defensive skirt plating).
