Dark Whisper was a Chuda courtier school, and they were strong in deception and infiltration. They used their talents to gain information and laguing their enemies at court without detection. [1] They were deployed selectively, preferably in courts where their kansen ally was unlikely to be uncovered. [2]

Training Edit

Devised by Chuda Eiichi, [3] the Chuda bound a kansen into the body of the courtier, a process which did not actually Taint the student. Instead, the kansen slowly leached the life away from its host. In return, the nearly undetectable kansen helped its host, granting him the blessing and power of darkness without carrying the taint, thereby allowing them to operate in the Empire without easy detection. [4]

Abilities Edit

The kansen granted its host the ability to ferret out sin and depravity in other people, indeed to push others toward their darkest impulses. Dark Whisper courtiers were incapable of magic themselves, even Maho spells. Some of the hosts became mad, their minds twisted by the constant whispers of the kansen bound to them. [3]

Leaving the Spider Edit

Daigotsu deemed it too dangerous to use the practice on a large scale lest the Spider Clan's true nature be unearthed by its enemies. Mental instability of many early test subjects sanctioned this decission. The school was part of the Spider until the Chuda fled back to the Shadowlands in the aftermath of the Destroyer War. [3]
