The country of Kosetsu is home to many forms of life, some seen, others unseen. Some of this invisibility is by choice, but much is driven by those who hold the power. Spread throughout its Kosetsu and beyond kami watch over everything. They are the essence present in all things: the trees, mountains, plains, cities, bridges, and ruins, wind, snow, rain, love, hope, despair. When respected they can bestow great power, but when disregarded they can cause untold destruction if they so choose.
Growing up in the Tora monastery, Keiyu Roshido has never ventured far from his mountain home. But something has always gnawed at his soul, calling him to help those in need. Now he is on his way to the Mizumishi, the capital of Kosetsu, where he hopes to finally be able to make a difference.
