Gandhara (ガンダーラ Gandāra) is a Buddhist pacifist organization that is participating in the Shaman Fight. Led by Lady Sati, they are the third great faction in the current Tournament and aim to prevent Asakura Hao from becoming the Shaman King.[1]

About[]

Gandhara is one of the oldest known organization, with a history dating well before the birth of Christ. They rose to prominence 2500 years before the current tournament, when their chosen candidate won the Shaman Tournament of that era. Because of this, they have no interest in having one of their group become king again.

In the current Shaman Tournament, Gandhara has participated to save all of humanity and prevent Hao from becoming the Shaman King, who plans to rid the world of all non-shamans. To this end, they have fielded three teams, all of which have made the top eight. Their current goal is to train Five Elemental Warriors, who will wield the Five Grand Elemental Spirits to defeat Hao while he is integrating with the Great Spirit.

Gandhara's Bodhisattva spirits

All the members of the Gandhara are Kami-class Shamans and are incredibly powerful. All their guardian ghosts are those of Bodhisattvas, in a strict adherence to their faith. They all possess Furyoku-nullification abilities, which enable them to defeat most opponents without using violence. Ryu once said that Lady Sati was as strong as Hao.

As a Buddhist organization, Gandhara is a pacifist by nature. They are completely neutral in outlook, and are described as the 'middle way' between the two extremes of the X-Laws and Asakura Hao. However, they also will not hesitate to use force when needed, though they use it only as a last resort and even then just enough to meet their objectives.
