The Era of the Heavenly Empress
The Dead daughter of Bayushi Korechika
Some say that Bayushi Korechika’s daughter died of a terrible illness. Other say that when she was 13, she was kidnapped for being beautiful, and to stop her kidnapper from doing terrible things to her, she scratched her face to ugliness. She would no longer go out in public without a mask, assumed the Kami had punished her for her youthful vanity, and she then committed suicide.
