Huang-Jin
Huang-Jin values honour and justice above all else. He rewards those who make wise decisions and watches with pride the strong leaders of the mortal realm. Those that abuse their power may find that eventually they fall upon divine retribution in the end, delivered by the dragon god of law, justice, honour, courage, and truth. Huang-Jin is also he who oversees that all that which springs from the earth returns to it again, bringing erosion and decay after growth has reached its peak to ensure that none take more than is due to them from nature. Huang-Jin holds strongly to the principle that the good of the society can only be maintained via order. A follower of Huang-Jin, in order to stay in his favour must:
1. Always keeps her word.
2. Never lie or cheat.
3. Never attack, harm or kill an innocent.
4. Never torture.
5. Always help others.
6. Never betray a friend.
7. Respect authority and law.

Qi
Qi is the god of music, song, storytelling, love, and lovers. She is also the protector of children, whose innocence and innate curiosity are things the goddess cherishes. She is more carefree than her brother Huang-Jin, but still holds many of the same virtues dear, such as those surrounding innocence, death, and charity. Qi values individualism and intuitiveness over a steadfast few of any rule structure or blind loyalty to authority. Followers of Qi may collect shiny objects – polished stones, gems, etc., and leave them in a pile for her. Once the pile is large enough, the god will supposedly descend and take it away and give one boon in return.

Chaotic good characters follow Qi.

Bǎo-Wēi
Bǎo-Wēi watches over the aspects of time and life, making sure that the world is balanced in its ongoing nature; peace and dignity is something to be striven for. Judgment from another is always bias, and so one must seek out the truth themselves. Bǎo-Wēi wards over the earth, and all of the plants that make it green. Among her feats, she has created the Zhǔ Dǎo Róng, as well as a certain flower called 'Bǎo-Wēi's Belly'. It is said that since the god resides over all forms of luck, eating or rubbing the 'stomach' of the pot-bellied root will grant favor. With the lives of plants and the luck of beasts, comes Bǎo-Wēi's careful eye on fertility and prosperity. Notorious for her jostling slumbers, Bǎo-Wēi keeps watch over the realms of dreams, illusion, and memory; sometimes time itself pauses to let her catch up during the more fitful nappings. Many times individuals leave offerings of food at the feet of ancient and tall trees, so that Bao-Wei might take fancy to them or their plights.

Neutral characters follow Bǎo-Wēi.

Khalil
War, betrayal, and personal strength are the things that Khalil covets. A god that chooses to destroy simply for the pleasure of watching things break, he is often called upon by those who wish to bring ruin to their enemies. He's known as the most capricious of the dragon pantheon - his most prized follower might one day be blessed with strength and power, only to fall out of favor the next and be cast down into death or uselessness. Khalil is also known as the bringer of storms. He presides over the domains of the weather, though much of what he inflicts tends to be foul and fierce. The followers of Khalil serve him by asserting their dominance over the other creatures of the earth, shedding blood to sate his thirst.

Chaotic evil characters follow Khalil.

Kiet
Kiet is associated with a wide range of concepts such as the night, justice and judgment, and death. Charged with maintaining the Pool of Souls, she resides among the stars and weighs the hearts of the dead against a single hair from Huang-Jin’s beard--the symbol for truth. If the soul is worthy, it ascends to the Heavens; if not, it must return to the Pool of Souls to be reincarnated at a later date. Kiet values tradition, loyalty and order but not freedom, dignity or life. Her disciples are those who follow the law, but so do without mercy or compassion. A follower of Kiet, in order to stay in her favour, must:
1. Always keep his word of honour.
2. Lie and cheat those not worthy of his respect.
3. Never kill an innocent, but may harm, harass or kidnap.
4. Never torture for pleasure, but may to extract information.
5. Never kill for pleasure.
6. Never betray a deserving friend.
7. Respect honour and self-discipline.

Lawful evil characters follow Kiet.

Spirit Guides

Upon application, every character will be assigned a spirit guide based on their personality/biography fields. Unlike your character's god and alignment, this isn't something you get to choose; it chooses you.

You'll also have the opportunity to interact with your spirit guide when he/she is connected to the game. For more information on these characters, please read The Story of Shèng Zhōng (Sacred Place).

Líng
the Diligent


Baras
the Courageous
The first of the tigers was a magnetic character whose natural air of authority conferred a certain prestige on him. He was tempestuous yet calm, warm-hearted yet fearsome, courageous in the face of danger yet yielding and soft in mysterious, unexpected places. He is the spirit guide of many natural born warriors, and it is said that he watches over the battlefield, giving strength to those who fight in his memory. Baras chooses those who are moody, reckless, hot-headed, selfish, impatient, impulsive, opinionated and rebellious, as well as those who are independent, brave, confident, dynamic, intense, energetic, sacrificing and faithful. 


Kirsa
the Wise
The first fox and the finest philosopher among the animals, Kirsa is known for saying very little but possessing great wisdom and virtue. She has tremendous sympathy for mortals and, as a messenger of Kiet, appears to lead the living to the corpses of their deceased loved ones. Those who are guided by Kirsa are often intense and passionate beneath their relaxed, coy exteriors, affectionate and pleasant to be around. Seldom do they lose their tempers. Kirsa chooses those who are fair, withdrawn, solemn, crafty, rational, temperamental, sensitive and motivated by attention to detail, as well as those who are haughtily indifferent, self-indulgent, judgmental, self-righteous, deceptive, self-centered and condescending. 


Irbis the Noble
Irbis, the first of the leopards, is associated with strength, heath and harmony, and is symbolic of rulership. A person chosen by Irbis wears the crown of destiny and is capable of great achievements if he or she knows how to harness his or tremendous energy, intelligence and talent. In her time, Irbis was known for having a charitable nature, but at the same time was also one of the most unpleasant creatures imaginable; she used cunning, lies and trickery to discredit her rivals while possessing a hunger for power and unlimited sexual lust. Irbis chooses those who are ruthless, imperious, arrogant, dogmatic, pompous, despotic, intolerant, demanding, as well as those who are noble, dignified, honest, charismatic, vibrant, magnanimous, expansive and powerful.
