“‘Short tailed comet divides the night sky” is a highly aggressive blade form, rarely used in actual combat, by most sword saints considered foolhardy at the best of times, for once entered can only flow into two further forms,
“Sparrow greedy for glory steals feathers from the mountain” for a follow up killing blow, or the more defensive “Red Moon fallen rolls down the mountainside”, in hope of avoiding retribution.
Neither have offer much chance for survival against a steady foe, but a unprepared or unnarmed opponent, may swiftly fall.”

-The Form of the Blade is a Perched Bird. From the writings of Sain Ein Laindred.
