The Forest of Spirits (Alpha Group)
Sword wielded by a fallen ronin
Whispering Shrike is a +1 wakizashi of incredibly beautiful design. The sword is etched with images of seven shrikes perched on a coiling branch that runs the length of the blade. Once per day, Whispering Shrike can be used to cast shield other on any creature touched by the blade while you wield it.
There is a small compartment in the hilt which can hold a small item.
