The Shingon family was created by the son of Asako Shingon after he joined the Isawa family during his gempukku, in memory of his father's sacrifice, who crafted the Elemental Nemuranai at cost of his life. His capital was Shiro Shingon. [1]

Becoming Isawa family vassal Edit

The Shingon obtained access to the Elemental Nemuranais during a short period, gaining a much better understanding of relic magic, sharing the knowledge with the Phoenix. The Isawa family granted the vassal family status with the responsability of tracking and cataloguing Nemuranai. [1]

Since the ascension of Tsi Xing Guo as the Fortune of Steel, the Shingon began to venerate him. [1]
