The Shosei are mystic guardians of Japan. Whenever one of their priestesses are killed while battling evil her blood is added to the case that houses the blade of blood. The sword sits in its case and the blade continually bathes in this pool of blood. The Shosei believe that because the blade soaks in the blood of the deceased priestesses that it also houses their souls. Anyone who commands the power of the blade commands the power of the souls housed in the blade. To wield the blade's power, you must be given control of the blade willingly by the head Sheosi priestess. The blade is currently in possession of Hana Yanowa, head of the Shosei order.
