"Village outsiders were subjected to the Cutting Ritual then made into Kusabi."
Kanji 身削ぎの儀式
Location Minakami Village
Participants Visitors to the village
Frequency In between Crimson Sacrifices
Purpose To prepare the Kusabi for the Hidden Ceremony
Game Fatal Frame II & Fatal Frame III

The Cutting Ritual is a small portion of the overall Hidden Ceremony, performed in Minakami Village. It is used to prepare a Kusabi. The thought behind the ritual is that the more the Kusabi is suffering, the greater calming effect they have in placating the Hellish Abyss. Kusabi must be alive after the ritual in order for the Hidden Ceremony to occur. Some Kusabi cannot survive their injuries and die, unable to be sacrificed.

Preparation

The visitor is held within a prison in the Kurosawa House until the time of the Hidden Ceremony. At this time, they are escorted to the Rope Temple where they are strung up.

The Ritual

While the priests chant and the Ceremony Master presides over the ritual, the victim is cut and slashed at from above by the Veiled Priests' staffs. This is done repeatedly until the Kusabi is in a satisfactory amount of pain and is suffering greatly.

Result

The Kusabi
A Kusabi is made for usage in the Hidden Ceremony.

Misc Info

  • The first Cutting Ritual was performed by a Ceremony Master, who sliced himself up and threw himself into the Hellish Abyss to appease it. Since then, the Cutting Ritual has been part of the Hidden Ceremony.
