Shaman King Wiki

The Dong Family (ドン Don-ke, Chinese pinyin: Dōngjiā) is a fictional family in the Shaman King Red Crimson manga series.


The Dong Family are an ancient Chinese family who rose to power during the Shang dynasty and were known as Teijin (貞人テイジン , lit. "Perfected Persons")—an ancient term for Daoists.[1] The Tao Family later rose in prominence and subjugated the Dong Family, along with the other shamanic families in China. In retaliation, the Dong Family rallied the people of China against the Tao Family and forced them into exile.[2]

Millennia later, after the Shaman Fight in Tokyo 2000, Tao Ren has brought the Tao Family out of the shadows with the Leidi Group.[3] This resparks the Dong Family's animosity for the Tao Family.[4] In anticipation of the Flower of Maize, they work with YVS in order to destabilize the Tao Family. Although they assist in killing Tao Iron Maiden Jeanne and stealing her spirit,[5] the Dong Family fails to eliminate the Tao Family before a ceasefire is called.[6]

The group within the family that is focused on the elimination of the Tao Family is called Red Crimson (レッドクリムゾン Reddo Kurimuzon).[7]

The family also has four Kami class spirits, the Four Holy Beasts.[1]
