108 Stars

In at the end of the the Age of Myth, it is said that Shinsei encountered 108 evil spirits as he prepared to depart the empire. Unwilling to leave these spirits to roam free, Shinsei bound and sealed them into the very night sky itself as stars. At first, the stars were wrathful and filled with hatred, sowing nothing but misfortune. As time passed and they watched the mortals struggle and toil beneath them, they realized how poor the lot of mortality was. From their places in the night sky, they swore to grant their favour upon worth mortals and lead them to greatness.

(This may or may not have any actual in game bearing, but it is just fun. Character assignments are loose and may change Kenchi will get one when I figure out exactly where he stands).
