BLOODLINES

 

    In Zaidan bloodlines (called Sekai-chi - World Blood) are intimately entwined with the mebhaighl (called Tamachizen - Soul of All).

    At some point during the early part of the Gokai Taisan the shaman of the Kiishi (Wood & Stone) sect learned how to tap into the Tamachizen - the universal energy that permeates all of existence. When they first tapped the Tamachizen (i.e. created the first Source holding) they also called forth the seven Kamichi (Blood Spirits), known collectively as the Nandaishinri (Seven Great Truths) which spread throughout the land and sought out the great heroes and imbued them with their essence. Each of the Kamichi is associated with one of the cults.
