Mioshie

Mioshie (神教) is the collective Genjin religion & mythology. Believers are called Mioshie-sha (神教者).

Mioshie is a polytheistic set of traditions and faiths worshiped primarily in the nations of Genjin culture/ethnicity in Fuso. They are also practiced to a lesser extent in eastern parts of Soleil and Yamatai's provinces in western Marlakcor, and have been on the rise in Maritymir through Yamatai's colony the Kappa Islands, as well as Raimei in southwestern Marlakcor. Gods and goddesses in Genjin culture are referred to as "Kami" and "Megami" respectively, and "Kamigami" collectively.

The overall governor of the entire Mioshie religion is the tenno.

Shrine priests and priestesses, from lowest to highest ranks, are referred to as
Rank Masculine Feminine
Priest Shisai
司祭
Miko
巫女
Head Priest Guji
宮司
Shumiko
主巫女
The head of a shrine or temple.
Supreme Priest Saikojuso
最高住僧
Saikomiko
最高巫女
This holy title is second to the tenno and there is only ever one at a time. The holder of the title is also the ruler of Hinomoto.
Other notes
Male and female members of the imperial family who join the priesthood are referred to as Shisai-oji (司祭王子) & Mikohime (巫女姫) respectively.

Zenno-sha & Kanno-teki

Tenrai Uchu-no-Zenno-sha Konpaku (天来宇宙の全能者魂魄) and Tenrai Uchu-no-Kanno-teki Yubutsu (天来宇宙の官能的尤物) are supreme kami worshiped by the Genjin as the overall rulers of the Spirit World, and the central figures of Mioshie. In discussion, their names are often shortened to Zenno-sha (全能者) and Kanno-teki (官能的) respectively.

According to traditional myth, Zenno-sha is the father of the Megami-hime, the master of the Idainaryu, and the creator of the lands and islands known as Fuso. Kanno-teki, mother of one of the Megami-hime, is the life-giver of Fuso, who let plants bloom and animals evolve by bleeding some of her blood into the land.

Through Shuyona Akegata-no-hime of the Megami-hime, the Tenno of Yamatai claim descent from them, and it is through this alleged descent that the legitimacy of the Idai dynasty is based off.

The main, largest, and original temple to them is Tenrai Fufu-no-Sodai Jiin (天来夫婦の壮大寺院/Grand Temple of the Divine Couple), located on the island of Seinaru-shima, a small island near the geographical center of Fuso.

Megami-hime

The Megami-hime (女神姫) are a group of "divine princesses" that, according to myth, lived in the protohistorical era of Fuso. They are believed to be daughters of Zenno-sha, all born to different mortal mothers that were believed to be Zenno-sha's concubines/lovers, and are thus all half-sisters to each other. Similarly to the Archangels of Septifidelity, each of the princesses represent a certain virtue and/or aspect of nature. They are led by Akegata-hime, the eldest of them, and the only one of the group born to Kanno-teki.

When talked about in conversation, the Megami-hime are usually referred to by the first or second parts of their name.

Idainaryu

The Genjin worship two sets of dragon deities known collectively as the Idainaryu (偉大な龍/Great Dragons). Followers of this faith believe these dragons are the source of a soshihito's ability to manipulate the elements. Synonymously known as spirits, each dragon has its own attribute that reflects the essence of nature. They are divided into two branches, the Takairyu (高い龍/High Dragons) and the Hikuiryu (低い龍/Low Dragons).

The Takairyu, are the higher dragon deities and take more prominence their their lower counterparts, the Hikuiryu. The Takairyu are also known by a particular material or gemstone each is believed to be made of.

The Takairyu aren't always all worshiped at the same time. Some areas place more emphasis on one or more dragons than the others, sometimes in the form of cults. (e.g. Most wood elves that follow these dragons tend to place emphasis on Midori Shinrin-no-ryu, the Emerald Dragon, more than the other dragons; and Kogane Tenpi-no-ryu, the Golden Dragon, is largely worshiped in parts of Soleil more than the other dragons).

The Hikuiryu are the lower dragons of the Idainaryu, which take less importance than their Takairyu counterparts.

He was deified both for this feat and resolving a massive war that happened during his time. Said war is known to history as the Saisho Kairiku War (First Land and Sea War), named for the fact that, with the establishment of the first formal navies of Fuso, it was the first war in the history of Fuso to take place on both land and sea.

Syncretic deities

Deities adopted from influences from other faiths, though likely under different names.

Shinigami

The Shimigami are spirits that act as guides for souls to Shigo-no-sekai, the Genjin term for the afterlife. They either escort souls to paradise in Takamagahara, or drag them to eternal torment in Yomi-no-kuni. There are countless shimigami, and only twenty of them are known by name. Genjin believe that those destined for Takamagahara see the Shinigami as beautiful ethereal beings – similarly to angels – while those destined for Yomi-no-kuni see them as ugly skull-faced demons.

Known Demons

Along with the holy kamigami, the Genjin acknowledge several demons. Like the demons in the Septifidelic faith, each demon represents a negative aspect.

The demons of Genjin culture are:
