Yang is a term used by Kuei-jin to describe the active, positive principle of life, as well as Chi derived from that principle.


Yang is one of the two forces which drive creation, along with Yin. The Yang principle represents all that is active, warm, bright, masculine, upward-seeking, and corresponds to the day. Of special interest to the Kuei-jin is the association of Yang with life and, by association, blood.

It is personified by the Scarlet Queen, and can be found in abundance in the Yang World.

Yang-aspected chi (Yang chi) can be harvested from living creatures' flesh, blood, or breath, as well as from Dragon Nests attuned with nature and creation, including the caerns of most fera and other sites where the Wall is low and spirits are prolific.

From the perspective of the chi'n ta (mages), yang chi is essentially Quintessence with a strong Dynamic (or rarely Entropic) Resonance.
