Overview

Henshin mystics are members of a monastic order that teaches what they consider a great mystery of the universe: that humanity is capable of a transformation (henshin) into divinity.

Their training and discipline is aimed toward the ultimate perfection not only of themselves, but of all humanity. They believe this perfection is the future of the world and of humanity, and this belief fills them with a hopeful peace.

Some henshin mystics begin their careers as shugenjas or other spellcasters, but they abandon this course once beginning the path of the mystic. In Rokugan, they are drawn exclusively from the Phoenix clan, where they are trained in the Asako school.
