Kai-Chini are a race of good-hearted creatures who dedicate their lives to eradicating wars, prejudice and hostility. They are considered to have the greatest sense of law and honor, combining individuality with justice. They are a race who have perfected their society and themselves, for they would often rather settle any dispute through negotiation and make sure that no one is hurt. However they are very protective and have justice in their hearts, so anyone found hurting innocent people, especially children and the elderly, they ensure that the monster who perpetrated it will get what he or she deserves. Despite this they hate killing people, even evil people. But they know that duty calls them to destroy any threat to innocent, defenseless people. But deep down they always feel an unexplained guilt for the death of anyone. Kai-Chini are often the same height as humans, although slightly lighter. They always have white skin and hair, but not a fleshy white, but a pure, clean icy white. Infact their skin is always cool to the touch. They are attractive and healthy beings, with bright yet deep cyan, grey, silver or navy eyes. They are very well-dressed and aristocratic in appearance, even their armor is spectacular. Despite this they always seem to choose cold colors, those around even claim that they feel a slight refresing chill when they are around them. They are quite a long lived race, living for about 200 years or even 250 at most. They have confidant and well-bred accents, with a hint of mystery about them. Kai-chni speak Common, Kai-chini and plus a few other languages that they have studied.


Kai-chini rarely fight unless forced to do so. If a fight does start, they very rarely kill their opponents, just rather sub-due them.
Resistances: Kai-chini have a resistance to Cold and Fire attacks of 3.


Another of their features is their ability to treat animals with respect and decency so as to actually share enviroments with semi-wild creatures who have come to love their presence in their homes. They often have names to do with their races legends and storys, because as a tradition the eldest member of a Kai-Chini family tells the children of it one of their many tales from one of their 12 holy books, and their are lots. Hence the child is named after that tale. An example include Tamugani wicth roughly translates as 'Wise-Crane' out of the Kai-Chini tale of 'Otakunu and the council of Birds'.


Kai-chini favored class is Shugenja. Those who have turned away from the diplomatic role often find that their love of magic and nature is too strong, and many of these rebels become Druids or Wu-Jen. Unlike most good societys they rarely have Paladins, instead they defend their intrests with Samurai.
