Unfortunately, the poor thing had to be the one to find her father’s corpse splayed on the floor in a pool of blood with Kurikara’s sword in his back.
Kurikara is a fire dragon type Shikigami who currently has no master (though Hisoka is eager to change that.) He happens to be very short (Kurikara only comes up to Hisoka’s chest,) and Hisoka is a bit miffed at the size of the supposed ‘extremely powerful’ Shikigami he’d been tracking.
Kurikara’s power rivals that of Sohryu himself, but being a fire type, he has a terrible temper just like Suzaku, and Touda.

The last factor was what ultimately decided the argument in the ensuing Gempei Wars when Prince Mochihito, eager to succeed to the imperial throne, called on the Minamoto to crush the Taira, who had their own nominee for that position.
After suffering defeat at the battle of Ishibashiyama in 1180 Yoritomo put military affairs into the hands of his more capable brother Yoshitsune and cousin Yoshinaka: both were excellent generals.
Yoshitsune went on to ensure Yoritomo's position by crushing the Taira at the famous battle of Ichinotani and then annihilating the clan's last remnants in 1185 at the naval battle of Dan no Ura, which ultimately ended the Gempei Wars.

Kurikara was a fire dragon, he was of the highest order, and history told that it had taken the Emperor's army and his power to defeat the king of dragons.
Kurikara sat in his cave and watched the water coming from the sky, watched the dark clouds race across the mountains, obscure the peaks and sometimes a whole mountain side.
Kurikara hissed and briefly let his fire aura flare, finally hearing the satisfactory cry of pain as the water element was burned and had to let go.

There are also many conflicting accounts of the battle, such as its date and time and the age of the emperor.
True, he was a great general who defeated the Minamoto in three separate battles, but it was the imperial diviner, Harenobu, who accompanied Munemori and forecast the omen of the dolphins.
I suggested that Tomomori, disgusted with his lord's cowardice, forced Munemori overboard; however, it was the fault of some unnamed soldiers who "accidentally" pushed him as he stood in shock and fear, at a loss as to what to do.
