In the year 178, Kephera Queen of Queens Zenobia announced that in
exchange for her resurrection, Grand Master Osierti would teach the
Serenwilde the ancient science of monkhood. Named after a long-lost Fae
word signifying the strength and majesty of Brother Hart, the first monk
guild to be founded on the Basin's surface would be taught to use shofa,
a special knife comprised of two conjoined crescent blades. As monks and
as members of Serenwilde they value both strength alone and as part of a
greater whole. Each member is encouraged to be independent and develop
their own talents so that they can best support the guild.

The Shofangi are of the monk archetype. As such, after having mastered
the basic monk practices of Kata, they specialise in Shofangi, the art
of using double crescent knives or Shofa. Their secondary skill is
Harmony, the Kephera-taught study of harmonising their body, heart and
mind with the elements of Water, Wind, Wood, Fire and Metal. Shofangi
may also choose to learn psionics, eventually turning their study to
their bodies with psychometabolism, or acrobatics.
