Spirit Blade : a balancing force in the world. These warrior monks live a life of constant travel. Searching for lost spirits that need guidance crossing over to the other side. Destroying evil wherever they find it. Or fostering conflict in places that have grown too decadent. Spirit blades are neither good nor evil, but rather a bit of both. Balance is everything to a spirit blade and they will stop at nothing to archive the balance they seek. They use a weapon made from a piece of their own soul to combat the darkness.
