Senshu Kami Ippon (“Tyrant Demon, the First”)

“Senshu Kami Ippon” (Tyrant Demon the First)

A massive creature of exposed musculature and bone formations, it’s grotesque appearance only surpassed by it’s talent for violence and insantiable hunger, the “tyrant demon” first appeared in a village a few kilometers from the original Fukushima site, randomly laying waste to anything in it’s path. First seen after the Kyoushin (Great Earthquake), the horrific “Senshu Kami Ippon”, it’s name given to news media initially through the broken Japanese of an American present at an early sighting, and so dubbed for the way in which it seemed to command and dominate the other Kaku No Oni, it was his terrible presence and the carnage left in his wake which became the catalyst leading the prefecture authorities to assemble the first Paranormal Response Task Force.
