Kadzutoyo

Japanese - A samurai. Returning from a fishing trip with his retainer, he came upon a maiden weeping at the roadside. The servant fell in love with her but Kadzutoyo cut off her head with his sword. He had noticed that she was not in the least wet although it was raining hard and had recognised her as an evil goblin. Next morning, the headless body was found to be that of a large badger. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Kadzutoyo, Rokugo or Rokugo.
