Canis Lykaon, also known as Inugami of the Black Blade, is a Longinus wielded by Tobio Ikuse. It is an Independent Avatar-Type Sacred Gear.


In the past, God of the Bible created Canis Lykoan by using two seperate sources. First being, the King of Arcadia, Lycaon who had accumilated evil deeds towards the Chief God of the Greek Faction, Zeus invoking his fury resulting in him being turned into a werewolf. Second being, the Ame-no-Ohabari, the strongest sword among the Totsuka-no-Tsurugi and later used in order to kill Hinokagutsuchi along with being said to possess divinity. As soon as both were sealed within the Canis Lykoan, the curse of Lycaon and the divinity of Ame-no-Ohabari turned it into an ominous blade.

When Tobio was born with the Canis Lykaon, and it was one of the rare instances where it already had its Balance Breaker fully activated. Because of this his grandmother; Ageha Ikuse used a buddist sealing ritual to seal away the Canis Lykaon. Years later, after discovering his Sacred Gear, Tobio decided to name the dog Jin.


The Canis Lykaon initially takes the form of a puppy with a sword on it's forehead. In its real form, it is a large dog with a sword on its forehead.


Canis Lykaon has the ability to summon a black dog that is capable of moving independently from its wielder with its own instinct. The dog produces blades from his body. During their fight against Doumon, Tobio awakens the abilities to let Jin move and attack through shadows along with being capable of growing its black blades from shadows as long as it is within his field of vision. In Volume 2, Jin lost the ability when he was a puppy to grow blades from his body. Jin can now create edged sword in his mouth to fight. 

  • Night Haken: This is a technique, which summons a black blade from the shadows around him and is able to generate one from even his opponent's shadows catching them off guard.


Night Celestial Slash Dogs: The Balance Breaker of Canis Lycaon. Tobio transforms with darkness into a humanoid black Hound with six tails and Jin transforms into a big Black Hound. In this form, not only does Tobio gain enhanced strength, he can create an innumerable amount of blades, capable of tinging the sky and earth in darkness. Unlike most Balance Breakers, this form requires a chant to activate.

The chant Tobio Ikuse recites to activate this form is as follows:

<<——Behowlest the slaying of one thousand mortals>>
<<——Besingest the slaying of ten thousand goblins>>
<<——Mine name, immersed in deepest darkness, tis the Imitation God traversing the Polar Night>>
<<——O ye, perishest by mine own black blade>>
<<——Fools ye art, oh deformed Creator Gods>>
