Adagumo no Yaorochi is a youkai born from the severed arm of the original Orochi, alongside many other siblings, each born from a part of his body after he was betrayed and dismembered by his allies. Along their siblings, Yaorochi avenged his death, though in the process, nearly all of them died, save for Yaorochi and their youngest sibling, Saragimaru. With no one else to turn to, Saragimaru clung to Yaorochi, who strongly disliked them. Regardless, Yaorochi went on a journey to find Tasouken, the legendary sword of Orochi, and eventually did, though it was a rusted, broken shell of its former self. Still, Yaorochi struck down Saragimaru with it and destroyed their relationship, and then went on to live in isolation, mourning Tasouken.
Yaorochi eventually moved to Mugenri one day, and there, they discovered a clay sword that strongly resembled Tasouken. Yaorochi got its creator, Sukune Katano, to move Tasouken's essence into the new sword, and caused an incident in the process. Ultimately, Tasouken was successfully transferred into its new container, which was, unfortunately, actually just a sword-shaped bottle opener. This resulted in it losing much of its power and its status as a Sacred Treasure, but Yaorochi doesn't care all that much, as they only wanted the sword in their possession and cared little for its abilities.

- Tasouken: The Legendary Sword of Kusanagi, and the weapon of the original Orochi. Although it was once one of the Three Sacred Treasures and possessed enough power to allow its wielder to rule the world forever, after it was moved into Sukune's sword-shaped bottle opener, it lost much of its old strength. Despite this, Yaorochi still utilizes it in combat, and it has the power to sever relations, best showcased when Yaorochi struck down Saragimaru with it and thus destroyed their relationship.
Intelligence: Yaorochi is a naturally exceptionally skilled swordsman, though, beyond that, they are extremely paranoid, arrogant, and obsessed with Tasouken. Their intense paranoia causes them to stay away from others, expecting them to attempt to steal Tasouken, and lash out at them when they get too close.
Weaknesses: Yaorochi is overconfident and extremely obsessed with Tasouken. They believe most people are out to take Tasouken from them, and will violently lash out at those they believe are trying to do so. They also have a very short temper, and react particularly violently to insults towards themself or Tasouken.
