Practitioners of the Bone Shintai commonly congregate in small wu of like-minded Kuei-jin, often honing their arts in sites of strong Yin, such as burial grounds. Although not all practitioners are ch'ing shih, most grow heavily imbalanced to Yin over time. Certainly, Bone students are among the most frightening Kuei-jin to meet in combat.
Chi Attunement: Stamina.
- Corpse Skin: The body of the Kuei-jin becomes more corpse-like, offering improved protection against physical attacks
- White Tiger Corpse: The body of the Kuei-jin becomes transparent, although this does not affect clothing unless the Kuei-jin expends more Yin chi. Kuei-jin using this power can occasionally be detected by the palpable chill they radiate.
- Bone Obedience: Through selective manipulation of Chi, the Kuei-jin can cause his bone structure to calcify and grow like rock crystals
- Five Poison Cloud: The Kuei-jin exhales a poisonous cloud of black Yin energy
- Ch'ing Shih: The Kuei-jin temporary assumes the Ch'ing Shih form.
- Ikehone: The Kuei-jin can rearrange the bone structures of any creature with a skeleton to his liking
- Skeletal Sculpting: Like the previous power, only that the Kuei-jin can bypass the flesh of his target and affect the bones directly
- Corpse Awakening: The Kuei-jin infuses a corpse with Yin Chi, raising it as an undead and mindless servant
- Form of Infernal Favour: A refined form of the Ch'ing Shih that is even more horrifying and often possesses appendages like tentacles or spikes.
