O Holy Mother! We hold this Divination Séance in your name!

The Holy Mother is the founder of the Kingdom of Khura'in, as well as the patron deity of the Khura'inese faith. Owing to her religious significance, her face is not depicted on any painting or other artwork of her, aside from the interior of the Founder's Orb, and only the Queens of Khura'in know her true name. She, along with her sister, Lady Kee'ra, founded the kingdom in the 7th century CE.


  • Her Japanese name "Shiso-sama" (始祖さま) simply means "the founder".
  • Her English name may come from the Virgin Mary or from the Holy Ghost, as Khura'inism shares some similarities with Christianity.


  • The Holy Mother's design appears to be based on Guanyin, an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion and more commonly known in English as the "Goddess of Mercy". The Holy Mother could also be said to resembles Christian depictions of the Virgin Mary, as the similarities between the two were such that statuettes of the Virgin Mary were sometimes disguised as Guanyin by persecuted Christians in Japan.
