Spider wound
Exit wound from taint being expelled by the Temple’s powers. Ewww.

Before he enters the temple of the Three Sisters, the Kitsuki is first cleansed of his taint (heretofore unknown) in the guise of a small blackened spider being forced from his body through a fiery buboe. Owie. Wait, did you say TAINT?

Some riddles, real interactive, full immersion weird dream style ones happen.

Shosuro 1st – The Shosuro is much older, and is dressed all in white robes. Walks towards the center of a platform where a crowd has gathered. There, the tatami mat. There, an old wakizashi, yours. There, the paper wrapped around the blade. You kneel. In the corner of your eye you see your Second, someone you trust completely. You reach for the blade and take it up, hold it in the proper position, and start to plunge it into your own belly. There is little pain as your Second performs his duty. (Water.)
Kitsuki 2nd – The Emperor’s Court, there are several Scorpion courtiers. One of them is not who they say they are. They do not speak, yet somehow you must figure out which one it is. (Earth.)
Tamori 3rd – (Fire.)
Hida 4th – A robed figure with their face hidden, yet somehow familiar, stands next to the Hida as they look upon a field of graves. An open grave is nearby, the figure points to the grave and asks, “What is in the hole?” to which the Crab easily responds, “Nothing.” (Void.)
Mirumoto Last – He is a butterfly, flitting above a tapestry. The tapestry is the land of Rokugan, and the closer he flies to the silk the more detail he can see, in perfect detail. It would be hard to believe there is anything more accurate. (Air.)
