Ibaraki Douji

茨木 童子

It was foretold that I would take my Lord's place as head of the oni horde. He cared for me none-the-less. I was not beautiful, but we had much in common.
— Ibaraki Douji
 
Overview
Second in command and consort to Shuten Douji, king of the oni horde.   Discarded by her parents, she was taken in by a barber. When she licked the blood off a razor, she transformed to an oni. In fear, the village banished her that cruel winter.   Desperate, she searched for work and a place to stay. Even the brothels of neighboring towns shunned her. Shuten Douji was the only being who would take her in.    One night after raiding, Shuten threw a party to celebrate their large haul. The mob drank themselves into a drunken stupor. Watanabe no Tsuna and his four comrades took advantage, and slew every member of the horde, except Ibaraki—who in fled the scene.   Upon hearing there was still a oni left from the gang, Watanabe investigated. He found Ibaraki at the rundown Rashoumon gate. In their battle, he cut off her arm and kept it as a prize.   Ibaraki disguised herself as Watanabe's aunt, stealing back the appendage, so Watanabe could never control her.

Oh my goodness, I *love* the team secrets thing you have on the right side. What a creative idea! Ibaraki Douji seems like an important character, so I hope this article can be expanded upon n the future. 'When she licked the blood off a razor, she transformed to an oni.' <-- I love this, it is very surprising and something you don't expect, but a lot of myths tend to be this way. Beautiful art too!
