Black Lotus Description
A switchglaive wielded by Mumyo, the chief of the Sohaya. The lotus was seen as a special flower in Buddhism. To rise and grow from the mire, and yet be unsullied, it became synonymous with the concept of uncorruptable purity. Although red, blue, yellow and white lotuses appear in Buckhist scripture, there are no references to black lotuses. While the Sohaya have taken in some Buckhist concepts, the naming of this weapon can be taken as a hint of the distinct heretical path they have forged for themselves.
