Onmoyji, The : The group of mages who are bound in service to both the Empire of Keimusho and the Imperial Family of Akimoto. While ceremony, ritual, magic use and spellcraft are certainly prevalent throughout the Empire, The Onmyoji are its highest practioners of magic. All powerful Onmyoji of any discipline (psionicists, binders, wizards, magisters, green bonds, etc) are required by law to register with them, though there are also incentives, both societal and practical, for actually joining the guild. The Onmyoji have small enclaves in every major city within the Empire, except for Tirygon-to, the Imperial Capital, where they are centred and they gather in larger numbers. Their head enclave is a walled section of the Imperial Capital and is only open to The Onmyoji, the Imperial Army of Keimusho, the City Guards and the nobility. Their exact structure is unknown, but all members of The Onmyoji wear the symbol of a sky blue star on their sand coloured robes to show their affiliation. While there are many dabblers in magic, The Onmyoji are rightly respected (and not a little feared) by the general populace and even some of the nobility, as The Onmyoji are often also magistrates for the communities that they live in.
