Enemy Description

  • Soldiers that have come to harness the power of yokai by using Spirit Stones. It was once fairly common to hear the Japanese word for an aberrant, "gedo", spoken in western Japan, often in reference to people possessed by demons that committed violent acts. It was rumored that these acts were the work of the ghosts of animals or vengeful apparitions, and eventually, the term encompassed any and all evil Yokai that possessed people. Therein lies the origin of the Aberrant Soldier's name, as they carry various kinds of yokai within them.
  • The word "gedo" also carries the general meaning of being lost or of one who has strayed from the established path. "Sado", the left path, also holds the same meaning, as there was an ancient belief that the right side was the true path and spurned the left as the path of evil. That an Aberrant Soldier's yokai power resides in their left arm can surely not be a mere coincidence. The Spirit Stone embedded in their left shoulder is their means of controlling the inhuman power and damaging it will rob them of the ability to draw strength from the yokai.
