The Kamu are a hardy race, with the ability to produce an aura of universal energy. Though not as skilled in the more intricate control of such forces, they are still formidable users of these powers. They stand around 5’8” / 172 cm and humanoid with an athletic build. Their skin ranges from tanned to dark and they all have small horns protruding from their forehead, giving them a somewhat oni-like appearance.

A common and highly celebrated part of Kamu culture is Sigil Fights
. These contest of combat ability pit two contestants together, with the two most common being between two Sigil holders or someone challenging a holder. In the latter case, it is most often a battle fought on the most even of terms, with both contestants being granted similar equipment.

Yeveraz, their home world, is ruled by a King who is often a powerful warrior in his own right. The current King however is a harsh tyrant, puppeteered by a powerful Kijo. As such the one strong alliance they long shared with the Megami is currently broken, despite many of the Kamu still secretly holding to this bond. This, unsurprisingly, has led to much open rebellion against the King, though much of this is quickly quelled by the now far more brutal Royal Guard.
