The Battōga is a name given to the sacred and secret technique of the wolf clans.
It's believed that each part of Battōga could have only one true user at the time. The true user of Battōga was known as the canine warrior of Sirius. He was a heir and descendant of the original canine warrior and user of the same technique.
The Battōga was well-respected and it was very forbidden to tell its secrets to non-wolves, despite the fact that some of the dogs could be (and were) true heirs of the original warriors.
The Battōga techniques are powerful but usually take years to learn and many are even unable to learn them at all. However, it seems that the true users do not need much training, being the true heirs of the original users.
According to the legend, the Battōga originates from the meat of the monster Jaryuuki. It's said that the meat gifted the warriors with great powers.
