The Tempest of Inward Focus is a martial art form developed by the heretical Dharma of the Seekers of the Inward Way. Since most users occaisonnally refer to themselves in this manner, the Quincunx mistook the name of the Discipline as the name of the Dharma and dubbed the heretics "Tempest of Inward Focus".

Originally a movement-based meditation technique, it has been redefined as a combat discipline by Seekers who refuse the persecution from the Quincunx. As a result, some elements are borrowed from mortal martial arts, like Tai Chi.
