Kiai is a Demon Discipline that channels the wrath of the Demon through the voice, turning one's own voice into a weapon that can be taken anywhere undetected, a tool for accomplishing much more than just giving pretty speeches, and even a way to open pathways between worlds.

To mortals, the concept of kiai, the "cry that gives life," is one that involves a person harnessing his breath to focus himself and his actions. Thus Kuei-jin scholars speculate Cathayans with much Yang energy, who play at being alive and even seem to almost breathe upon occasion, are more attracted to Kiai than the death-aspected Yin vampires.

Because Kiai requires the use of the voice, it can't be used if the Kuei-jin is gagged or otherwise unable to use his voice for some reason. Similarly, Kiai powers aren't for those who wish to be stealthy; anyone nearby can hear when a Kiai power is used.
