The Katana of Boto
The hilt of the curved weapon is woven silver and gold around a red crystalline substance that you hand never seen. The blade is pure silver, almost white with tiny symbols etched along the centre of the blade. The hilt of the weapon is very ornately carved steel, in a shape of a large dragon consuming a smaller one. The scabbard is a black metal, very plain and dull, with different symbols over ever inch of the weapon. You can tell just by looking at it that the scabbard was made by a different person than whoever made the Katana.
Boto, a powerful demon, was a souleater, which is a powerful and cruel demonic creature that can rip the soul of a mortal creature from his body and devour it. These souleaters have souls of their own, and Boto placed a piece of his soul into this blade in order to create a weapon that could slay his own kind. Boto found that by slaying souleaters and devouring their souls, he took their powers and strength from them. But Boto became careless in his vast power and a mortal man, named Jarik, stole the sword from him. Although the mere touching of the blade burned his hands, Jarik sought to use the weapon against Boto to slay him. But, as the sword contains a portion of Boto’s soul, he can not be slain by this weapon unless someone can release the captive part-soul and replace it with a part-soul of the wielder. Jarik was never able to accomplish this, and in the end he passed the weapon on to his son. Jarik later killed himself out of the shame of his failure
