Once the grand home of temples and the faithful, Mikaboshi‘s forces unleashed the Baleful Inferno on the Mirror district during the Midnight War, turning this area of Wa into a place of haunting undeath. When Mikaboshi became Warlord of the Five Fold metropolis the Devil did nothing to restore the Mirror district, instead outlawing formal the gods’ worship in his city. The remaining holy-folk were executed, exiled or imprisoned and the gates to this sealed. Since that time, only the most desperate criminals, beggers and fools make their home in the Lantern district amongst the walking dead.
Prior to the Baleful Inferno, a great variety of gods worshipped by cults large and small occupied Wa. All citizens, however, paid lipservice or more to the city’s trinity of patrons – Amaterasu, Emma-O, and the twin half-god Jin Brothers – Fu and Rai.
