Yoichinoyumi (与一の弓), "Yoichi's bow", comes from a Japanese story of the Samurai, Nasu no Yoichi. He was a Lord of the Minamoto clan during the Genpei War against the Taira/Heike. During the shore battle of Yashima, the Taira placed a mystical fan atop one of their warships, and claimed it protected them from ballistic fire and could even divert the arrows back to their enemies; they made a challenge against the Minamoto to try and take it down. Yoichi mounted a horse and entered the waters. Despite the tide, the wavering of his mount, and the teetering of the fan's ship, with a single arrow he was able to shoot and split the fan. Because of the marvelousness of the shot, both sides of the confrontation cheered Yoichi's mastery of archery.
Originally wielded during the Shadowreign era by Ghebben.
