Club Soldier Lore
- Taro is a Japanese name for boys, From Japanese 太(ta) meaning "thick, big" and 郎(rou) meaning "son". They have small, child-like heads, making them reminiscent of the man-eater, "Executioner Smough ". Their gigantism, and the various lesions across their bodies , are likely the result of imbibing Rejuvenating Waters. Lesions and atrophy due to imbibing the waters are found on various enemies, including bandits, zombies, and Senpou monks. The excess skin around their waist suggests that in spite of their size, they are in a constant state of hunger. Their body plan evokes that of the Headless enemies and mimics the DS3 Harald Knight . Many among them are charged with burying the dead. Ashina Taro Troopers are raised on a diet of Taro Persimmons, which come from the infected ebony trees of Mibu Village.
