Obanak is an oni warlord active in the Wushanko Isles. During the Tetsu-Oni story voyage in the player-owned port, he is discovered to be terrorising Ai Jei in search of gunpowder. Sojobo and Shanao then set out to stop him, and are eventually successful in defeating him. He is later discovered to have been aided in his attack by a Purist known as Benkei in exchange for weapons, which included tetsu oni clubs.

He aided Obanak's island assault in exchange for weapons - tetsu oni clubs, no less - and he raised the sky orphan spirits so he could discover the location of the sky orphan's most sacred temple."
