Dragon Shrine Maiden (龍の巫女; Ryuu no Miko;Shrine Maiden of the Dragons) is the guardian of the Eye of the Dragon. Since time immemorial it has been the duty of every generation of Dragon Shrine Maidens to guard the Eye at all times, sometimes worn around her neck to keep with her at all times. Kureha and Momiji are the last ones who carry on the tradition. Before her death Kureha wore the Eye around her neck in a rosary. But as for Momiji, she by some unknown means merged the Eye with her soul in order to prevent it from being stolen.
