hanabira chizome -- a Chronicle of the Kuei-jin
<bloodstained petals>

Karmically cursed outcasts dwell in the shadows of Tokyo's 14 million mortals. Most drink blood, but they are not vampires; it is the chi contained within that sustains their own corpses that they animate.

Make no mistake: their risen state is no accident. Whether an evil person in life or the victim of a horrific death, each and every Kuei-jin had to will their dead spirit against unimagined odds to return to the land of the living.

Heaven granted them a slim second chance, though. Each Kuei-jin subscribes to a choice of dharma--a path to enlightenment--in the hope of rejoining the Karmic cycle. Such a monumental task could take millennia, but the wisdom accrued along the way gives them greater control over their insidious, base natures.

Your characters will be bound together by one of the ancient Kuei-jin Courts, into a group known as a wu, typically formed for a singular purpose. Members of a wu comprise a mix of both dharmas and directions; the latter based on the astrological conditions when a particular Kuei-jin first rose from the dead.
