Quoth the Satori:

“Shhh… Please. Let me alone. I don’t want any trouble. Leave me be, and I’ll let you do the same…

Kith Excerpt:

Also known as Kaku, Yamako, and Kuronbō, the distant and xenophobic Shinma known as the Satori are feared across the whole of the wilds. Ugly stories abound of their hunger, their lust, and their craven cowardice. They would eat travelers in bloody ravenous orgies of blood. Or they would steal virgins to bear their stunted offspring. With one hit, however, the craven beasts would run for the forests, frightened by the mightier fists of mortal man.

Is this true? Not a bit. The Satori are a sad family of Bakemono. They require stillness and quiet, and steer well away from the hustle and bustle of a modern lifestyle. This craving isn’t just due to their disdain for noise, but also stems from their ability to read the thoughts of all those around them. While other Hsien would view this power as a blessing, the Satori understand how much of a curse it truly is. When the truth is revealed, some may wonder why these quiet loving Shinma are considered a Bakemono family. The bitterness and contempt Satori have of the mortal world is proof enough.

Only the most spiritual of mortals – monks, priests, sages and the like undertake training to still their own thoughts. Few can control their own thoughts, and even fewer attempt to do so. Most humans, and Fae for that matter, let their thoughts run free and wild. These monkey thoughts of humans causes untold of hardship to any Satori who happens to be close. To this end, they migrate further up into the mountains, places where few, if any live.



“Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness.”
– Wayne Dyer
