Practitioners of Ghost-Flame are scattered throughout the Middle Kingdom, though there are relatively few in any given area. It's most prevalent in Japan; several Japanese vampire-warriors have mastered the final form. To access the energy, a vampire learns to handle the searing pain involved in channeling the Chi energy through her body. Many practitioners bear permanent burn scars, testaments to mistakes made in training. At these levels of mastery, Ghost-Flame practitioners, sometimes called hiken ("Blades of Fire") may alter the color of their ghost-flames as they see fit.
Ghost-Flames are not real flames, instead they are spiritual fires fueled by chi. Its color and propieties are determined by the chi used to fuel it. Yang flame burns red, blue, purpose, or other bright shades; Yin flame burns black, white, ice-blue, or other lunar hues.
