Spirits employed by the famous onmyoji, Abe no Seimei. They have various abilities depending on the individual.

They appears from a number of shikifuda that swirls like petals. The sight itself was extremely beautiful and magical, enough to make anyone fascinated by it. However, the shikifuda are created as the result of a cursed ritual, which make use of the flesh and blood of various living beings as its medium. Things that are seen only are not the truth.

Although the principle completely differs, it is said that the technique for conjuring creatures by using a tag as its medium became the hint for Card Device used by the Z/X users. Furthermore, it also became the cornerstone for NOAH Project and Braver manufacturing technology.

The personality and nature of a Shikigami is an added characteristic bestowed by their user, Abe no Seimei.
