Shinjin Lore

Description

Personality. Kaios are by far the most dignified species in the universe, they are mysterious and wise, think critically and rationally, and use knowledge over brute strength. Most Kaios seek to defend the universe and protect the innocent and good. Despite this, however, they are not immune to corruption, and indeed can, in fact, become evil. While Kaios are not inherently evil by nature they can be turned evil by hatred and corruption.

Shinjin that become Makaios are just as enigmatic and intelligent are their Kaio siblings. Makaios are shadowy and secretive, think radically and logically typically only about themselves and the schemes they have planned. Using dark energies and magical power over knowledge and wisdom. Makaios are inherently evil or bad, the opposite of Kaios, but like Kaios they can change. Makaios can become good and decent individuals.

Physical Description. Shinjin are extremely similar in appearance to Earthlings and other humanoid species. They have varying height, weight and skin color and other human like features. They have wildly different physical builds, from midgets to giants and from muscular to fat, although this does not seem to matter in actual physical health of the individual. Shinjin have drastically different shades of skin tone compared to Earthlings. Ranging from blues and purples to pinks and greens, Shinjin can have nearly any shade of skin tone imaginable. Moreover, many Shinjin have pure white hair with few exceptions. In many cases they are no physical differences between Shinjin and other humanoid species. Notably, Shinjin have points ears like Namekains and like Namekain this grants them improved earing. 

Shinjin seem to have different genders, however, these features do not seem to be related to the same physiological differences in Earthlings or other species. Since Shinjin are born from the Kaiju it is assumed that Shinjin do not actually have genders and rather these features are just simply aesthetic. It is also speculated that Shinjin aren’t born as children, but rather adult size with the minds already well developed.

Society. Shinjin who become Kaios live in a structured society in the sense that when they are born, they are legible to claim the position of a Kaioshin in the divine hierarchy, once a position is open. On rare occasions a Shinjin is born from a golden fruit and they are automatically destined to be a Supreme Kai of some destination. The Kaios hierarchy has many positions from attendant, Kai of Cardinal direction, Assistance Kai of Time and so on. So, while their official position is typically set for them, they do enjoy many societal and recreational activities such as cooking, driving, parties and marital arts.

When Shinjins are born as Makaios they are sent to the demon realm where they are contained and kept in check. The demon realm is a place that not even the eyes of gods can reach, and little is known about what truly goes on in such a domain. The demon realm society seems to be built upon a kingship or monarchy of sorts. Regardless, of the realm’s society structure Makaios do escape and enter the immortal realm where they can enact their own shadowy schemes. 

Home World. The Shinjin home world is simply called World Core or Kaishin-Sei and it is home to the gigantic Kaiju trees. These trees grow apple-shaped fruit which births the Shinjin. The planet itself is extremely peaceful with calm weather and clear skies. There are no major cities or structures to speak of and the world is nearly devoid of development save the simple buildings for the Shinjin that are birth there. With vast clean oceans and lush, beautiful forest World Core is the most magnificent planet throughout existence. The planet itself is located outside its home universe surrounded by stars. The planet and the stars existence in a micro-verse, sphere like realm which circles the home universe much like a moon. The home planet of the God of Destruction is also thought to be located in this realm.

Although, Shinjin are born on World Core this is not the planet which they ultimately live on. Instead they live on the Sacred World of the Kai or Kaioshin-Kai which is in the same micro-verse as World Core. This planet is also very peaceful with tempered weather and pleasant skies. Like World Core there are no major structures or buildings just simple homes for the Kaios that live on there.  

Like the Kaios that spend their lives on the Sacred World when Shinjin are born Makaios they spend their lives in the Demon Realm or Makai. Sometimes referred to as Devil World or the Dark Demon Realm this domain is located at the bottom tip of universes. It is not part of the mortal realm or Other World. It is a physical plane of existence that is opposite of the mortal realm itself. Little is known about the realm or how it is structured. Although, it exists outside of the other realms Makaios and demons alike are still able to escape the domain and enter the mortal realm and beyond. 

History. The history of the Shinjin is the history of creation itself and the eighteen universes. Before any universes existed, there was the Null Space a plane of existence void of anything. It is here in this space that eighteen universes where created, with thirteen of these universes being twins, indicial in every way. The Omni-King Zeno rules over these universes for time eternal. It is unknown if Zeno created the universes himself or if Omni-King is simply a title and Zeno is the current entity filling the title. Either way Zeno sits atop the hierarchy of divine beings and has the power to destroy instantly and completely anything and anyone. He displays this power by destroying six of the universes at once when he became offended.  

At some point in the early eons during the creation of the universes known as Time Immemorial, it was decided that an entity was needed to help curve the flourishing life inside the universes. Thus, the amoral and indifferent Majin Buu was created. Majin Buu was created with the leftover material used to form the eighteen universes. Majin Buu served as a pseudo God of Destruction, cycling between rampages and long hibernations. During the times of rampages Buu became corrupted by the evils of the universes he operated in. As Majin Buu became eviler, rather than a force of destruction, his rampages no longer served their intend purposes. Majin Buu was sealed away by some sort of divine interference inside universe seven, it is unknown if it was Omni-King Zeno who sealed him away. Majin Buu was replaced with the God of Destruction, or Hakaishin, and the hierarchy of the Shinjin-Kaios was created to watch over and keep balance in the universes. Although, some sources seem to counter this claim and suggest the Majin Buu simple formed from out of the leftover material and rampaged across the cosmos until captured and seal away. Either way, Majin Buu was the single most powerful individual to exist, in universe seven at least, next to the God of Destruction entity.

It was at this time that the unstable material used to create the universes was sealed in a space outside of time, this realm would later become the Demon Realm founded by Mechikabura. A Shinjin, Mechikabura was unknowingly the first born Makaios. He was a candidate for the position of Supreme Kai of Time along side another Kaios named Chronoa. Mechikabura failed the test for the position for using dark energies. Due to his malice Mechikabura was sent to the Demon Realm where he became the Dark King and ruled over the Dark Empire. Mechikabura attempted to use his armies and dark energy to corrupt and control the multiverse and the alternate timelines and universe within it, but ultimately failed. Demigra, another Makaios, was also sent the Demon Realm sometime after Mechikabura for attempting to use Tokitoki, the magical bird of time, to control and create time.

Roughly, five million years before the current age of universe seven an evil wizard named Bibidi used powerful magic to reawaken Majin Buu and attack the Scared World of the Kais. Majin Buu attacked and killed all the Supreme Kaios living there leaving only a single Kaioshin aptly named Shin alive. Shin would later kill Bibidi and hide the hibernating Majin Buu on planet Earth. It was this decision that lead to the events of Babidi the son of the evil wizard Bibidi to attack Earth five million years later and release Majin Buu, yet again, onto universe seven. During this event Majin Buu split into two different life-forms, creating Good Majin Buu who would later go on to create the Majin race. Thankfully, the heroes of universes seven prevailed defeating and destroying the other half of Majin Buu named Kid Buu.

With the Shinjin race nearly wiped out by Majin Buu Shin, along with the Supreme Kai of Time Chronoa and other divine entities, used celestial magic to enhance and increase the Kaiju trees fruit growth. Many Shinjin were born and the Scared World of the Kais once again became populated. Now, with a small teeming new generation of Shinjin lead by Shin the now crowned Dai Kaioshin the Kaios aim to refill the open position in universe’s seven divine hierarchy.

Names. Shijin can have typical names much like Earthlings or commonly named Androids. However, most Kaios are named after real world deities or positions of power such as a title of royalty or noble descent. Most Makaios are named after food sauces or garnishes that accent food.
