Profile

Undisputed ruler of all Inazuma

Bearing the name "Her Excellency, the almighty Narukami," he promised the inhabitants of Inazuma unchanging eternity.

He has destroyed love with a flash of lightning, forging a pure land from a lonely heart.

During these long years, the road to eternity has been dark and distant, but His Highness Shogun has not wavered for a moment.



Alone in silence, unchanging eternity reveals its serene nature.

Appearance

The Shogun Raiden is an adult woman with long braided purple hair that goes behind her back and a bobby pin on her right side. She wears a small crimson ribbon around her neck as a choker. Her kimono has a variety of patterns in different shades of purple and crimson, along with a badge with the Inazuma emblem tied to the front of her clothing below her right chest. She wears dark purple tights above knee level, with small diamond openings at the top. On the back of her outfit she wears a crimson bow with tassels. She also wears sandals; the one on the right is adorned with two pale violet flowers.

It is not known if the fan pin on his back is a false Vision or simply a mark. His hair does not shine when he performs elemental abilities, but they are inscribed with the Electro mark.

Personality

The Shogun Raiden is a firm believer in what she believes to be eternity, a place where everything stays the same regardless of what actually happens. She is honorable in her conduct and is revered by the people of Inazuma.

The Shogun exists in two forms: Ei, her true identity, and the Shogun, a puppet created by Ei to act as the ruler of Inazuma in her stead as she meditates on the Plane of Euthymia. This puppet follows a set of directives programmed into it, which are extremely difficult to modify even by Ei herself. The Shogun has a cold and severe personality, even insensitive at times; she is limited in emotional expression, has no likes or dislikes, and has no need for recreation. The Shogun considers herself Ei's assistant, and does exactly what she wants, no more, no less; he cannot act without Ei's direction, and if his usual functions are disabled, the Shogun becomes unable to do anything. Due to her limited range of protocols and Ei's apathy towards anything outside of eternity that she seeks, the Shogun can be easily manipulated by outside forces, such as when the Kujou Clan and the Fatui manipulated her to initiate and perpetuate the Capture Decree. of Visions.



While Ei is still relatively stoic compared to most people, she is noticeably more emotional and friendly than the Shogun. Unlike the Shogun, Ei has things she likes and dislikes, such as a fondness for sweets. Due to his dedication to eternity, Ei is suspicious of the idea of ​​change, although he shows more curiosity than disdain when it comes to new things, such as the appearance of the Traveler and the customs of the modern world. Because she has lost so many of her loved ones over the centuries, Ei is driven by fear of further loss and wishes to preserve Inazuma for all eternity. To this end, he sealed himself into the Plane of Euthymia in an effort to preserve himself from the effects of erosion, while creating the Shogun to be immune to the decay of the physical body. While on the Plane of Euthymia, Ei was apathetic towards anything that did not affect her quest for eternity, and had a low opinion of human ambition due to ambition leading to loss and suffering, which made her incompatible with eternity. Even on the Plane of Euthymia, however, she couldn't really escape loneliness, as she was happy to see her friend Yae Miko again.

Ei has a great weakness against desserts, since his opinion is that desserts cannot represent any serious obstacle to his quest for Eternity; This is also mentioned by Yae Miko and Venti, with the latter suggesting that the Traveler bring him desserts to exploit said weakness.

History

She is Her Excellency, the almighty Narukami, who promised the people of Inazuma unchanging eternity.



Since the dawn of mankind, people have always had a great longing and curiosity about the things of the world. This is the basis of cognition and the foundation on which reason rests. For the people of Inazuma, the world is like that too. In this nation, storms and lightning have existed for a long time, just as there is light, the ocean and ... the Shogun Raiden.

Before going to bed, mothers often tell their children the legend of how the Shogun defeated other gods and conquered other peoples. When the children of Inazuma visit other islands, they see canyons created by cutting lightning bolts and the pale, imposing bones of a snake.

Soldiers going to war shout "Glory to the Shogun and her eternal empire."

People with quiet lives are grateful to the Shogun and the services of the faithful Triumvirate.

The Shogun Raiden's reputation transcended the limits of mortal long ago, and grew into an undying faith that has been passed down in Inazuma for generations.

Due to the prestige and power of their Archon, the people of Inazuma have reason to believe that their descendants will also see the same landscapes and will build their world around this faith, which they will continue to pass on to future generations.

This is precisely the eternal utopia that the Shogun promised her people.

Character story 1

The real name of the Shogun Raiden is "Raiden Ei".
He has seen with his own eyes everything that Inazuma has had to sacrifice over thousands of years to progress. His happiest years are long gone, and his old friends have become his enemies, so in the end, he was left with no reason to keep wielding his sword.
"Any advance carries a loss." Ei thinks that this is the immovable law of time that can be applied to anything in this world.
The most glorious and prosperous nation of mankind collapsed overnight; Liyue, the oldest city of all, had to say goodbye to Archon Geo; and the winds of parting came whistling from the outer edge of time.

Character story 2

Even if a being who is limited by a body decides to pursue eternity, he can never avoid his own life expectancy.

The limited time we have was something that made Ei uneasy. So it was until a mysterious technology presented itself before his eyes. With it, you could make puppets capable of coming to life.

In theory, if these puppets could be the perfect copy of Ei, they wouldn't have a limited lifespan and could live forever in order to protect Inazuma forever.

However, making a replica of a divine being was not that simple. To do this, Ei carried out endless experiments and had to discard many that were unsuccessful, thus consuming an unimaginable amount of time and resources.

With his obsession and his warrior will, he created a perfect puppet. The new Shogun Raiden stood still before Ei as she listened carefully to everything she was telling her about herself, her other "self" and even about both of them. This is how the future of Inazuma was written in some wonderful blueprints of technology.

I only had one question for Ei: "If you leave your body, there will be no going back, are you sure you won't regret it?"

"The fact that you exist is my answer to that question."

Then, Ei became a consciousness that was kept in a sword. And that is how the "plane of euthymia" originated.

Character story 3

Before becoming the Shogun, Raiden Ei was a samurai in charge of supervising the fulfillment of the orders of the Shogun of that time.

The former Archon Electro, named Raiden Makoto, was weak and always loaded Ei with the most bloodthirsty tasks.

But, in addition to fighting, Ei also enjoyed his moments of relaxation under the cherry trees while playing cards with his friends.

However, she was always the slowest when it came to playing, so she never managed to win, nor did she get to taste the prizes that Priestess Kitsune prepared for those who won at cards.

So, to learn to play well, he began to put the same concentration as when he practiced with the sword. In addition, she used to challenge Makoto or Mikoshi Chiyo to card duels, or recite by herself under the moonlight the poems that were inscribed on the cards.

At last, the day came when, under the cherry trees, Ei defeated his opponents one after another. Even the tengu was killed by her after a hard battle, for which she was crowned champion.

She was very happy to have won, which caused laughter from her friends. Then, she realized that she had completely lost her manners and immediately lowered her hands and regained her cold countenance.

The intention of her friends was not to laugh at her, because they knew her very well and they knew that she had tried very hard to win. However, the Kitsune Priestess giggled. He placed some cupcakes in front of her.

"Technically, they are your reward, but in reality they are nothing more than artisan sweets.
I didn't think they would make you so thoughtful. In any case, give them a try, they are your reward for winning. "

He did not covet those cakes at all. As a samurai, he firmly believed that any defeat should be recovered in victory, so the cakes were a gift of appreciation for his great ambition. Then, as she tasted the delicious cupcakes, she unconsciously smiled again.

That was the taste of victory. Of course, the face she made when she held on to the smile was something her friends found very ... interesting. Even to this day, Ei still remembers those cherry trees from time to time.

Although it has been a long time since she visited them, although there is no one under her branches, she continues to wait for time to stop eternally.

Dream mind

"Oneiric Mind" is a sword passed down from generation to generation, and that has accompanied Ei to this day.

This sword has had two owners and has seen the passage of time and eternity.

It was born thanks to the divine power of Raiden Makoto, and it never had to be sharpened.

The blade followed its owner: if she didn't know how to fight, neither would he. Therefore, it was nothing more than the symbol of true peace.

When Makoto passed away, the sword came into Ei's hands. The weapon was thirsty for blood, and when he tasted it, the strong winds and thunder knocked it aside.

Makoto baptized her with the name "Oneiric Mind" because she wished she could see the dreamy beauty of Inazuma and the minds and hearts

    Curiosities

    • Unlike Venti and Zhongli, whose constellation names follow the form of "Dei" (Latin: "of God"), the Shogun Raiden's constellation name does not follow this pattern. This is speculated to be due to the fact that both Venti and Zhongli are the original members of The Seven, while the Shogun Raiden is not.
    • She is the second character to be a playable character and a boss, the first being Tartaglia.
    • She is the first character who cannot cook, both canonically and functionally.
      • That's why she doesn't have a special dish.
    • She is the first character to kill a Herald of the Fatui.
    • The Shogun Raiden design is based on Raiden Mei, the Herrscher of Thunder in Honkai Impact 3rd, another of the miHoYo games.

    Etymology

    • In Shinto mythology, Raiden (Japanese: 雷電 Shogun Raiden) is another name for Raijin, a god of lightning, thunder, and storms. Raiden also means "thunder and lightning" in both Japanese and Chinese.
    • Raiden's name may be a reference to Raiden Mei, a character from Honkai Impact 3rd, another game created by miHoYo.
      • Honkai Impact 3rd also has an official manga titled "Escape from Nagazora". It has a chapter called "The Wrath of Baal" which shows Mei's time as Herrscher.
    • The Shogun Raiden's deadly name, Ei, is primarily a Japanese female name meaning "Flourishing" or "Prosperous".
