The Bashumatsu (lit. "one loved by the dragon") are a group of warrior-monks native to Shi Inkahan. Although they are legendary warriors, the Bashumatsu are sworn to peace, and famed for using their skills only for defense, never for attack, except in extreme cases. This is symbolized by their signature naga musho blades, long swords which are completely blunt except for the very tip. The Bashumatsu are also known for their skill at manipulating ki energy.
The Bashumatsu's traditional garb includes a red tunic, which represents life, and a wide-brimmed black hat, which represents the cosmos. In their headquarters, the Shimpo Ryu Temple in the Blue Dragon Mountains, the Bashumatsu train for their role as keepers of order, and teach the ways of peace and enlightenment to all who wish to learn.
