The Yin Prana allows a Kuei-jin to to tap into and manipulate his internal Yin energy. Like Yang Prana, Yin Prana relies on motions and postures to utilize the various powers, but these motions are a far cry from the frenzied katas of the Yang Prana. Yin Prana motions are slow, graceful, and deliberate. Nonetheless, as with the Yang Prana, wielders of this Discipline must have relative freedom of movement.

For students of the Yin Prana, absolute control is essential. Students are well aware that, improperly channeled, Yin energy can generate chaos and death. Yin Prana students often spend entire weeks locked into painfully rigid postures. As with all Prana techniques, the Yin Prana is a complicated endeavor; a student may raise his level in this Discipline no higher than the lower of his Perception and Stamina ratings.

Exchange with the Nagaraja Kin-Jin and their strange arts of Nihilistics has formed the Bitter Yin style, which is currently developed in Korea. Only Ancestors and high-ranking Bone Flowers have knowledge about this techniques and only a selected few are allowed to learn it.
