Personality

Weapons

Jingu Staff

A staff in the Ling Sheng-Su Temple, it was giving to Shin as a gift after he left the temple and as a reminder and source of strength of the Ling Sheng-Su after the temple was destroyed.

A divine weapon, legend says that it is able to alter its length according to its wielder's will. It is said that originally it was not a weapon, but a pillar of the Dragon god's castle. Being a divine weapon, it is difficult for a human being to use it for long periods of time.

Kali-Yuga

One of the three sacred treasures of the Ling Sheng-Su Temple.

Kali-Yuga has the power to absorb any type of energy, be it good or evil. Since the night when the Evil Seed rained down the temple Kali-Yuga has been filled with evil energy, and if anyone (aside from Kilik) was to handle Kali-Yuga, it would mean the creation of another Soul Edge-like weapon.

it was originally wielded by Edge Master before being passed down to Kilik who later passed it Xiba.

Shin wielded for a short time but due to the evil energy within, he quickly dropped it. Shin later made a replica of it but rarely used it aside from training and as a backup weapon.

Rhombus Rod

A three-bladed cross spear that Shin made for battle.
