— Doji's signature word

"Purification Troop Private" Doji (浄化神衆序門 童子) are low-ranking soldiers and the backbone of the Army of Shinkoku. They are commanded by their Purification Troop Captain Rasho.

Appearance

AW Private Doji

Doji are short demigods with a plump build and markings across their body. Their bald heads bear two large eyes and a mouth with crooked teeth. As soldiers, they wear golden armour and gauntlets, as well as a loincloth and sandals.

Personality

Doji quickly get carried away and are easily confused. They often speak in short one-word sentences.

They also appear to have a fundamental understanding of tactics in some circumstances, but rarely apply it after making contact with the enemy. Generally, it would seem that all Doji Purification Troops are rated at Private due to their cowardice and lack of individual initiative unless under extreme circumstances. However, these undesirable traits were eliminated to some degree by the inclusion of a Purification Troop Captain in each squad.

Story

Powers and Abilities

The Doji are low-ranking soldiers and the backbone of the Shinkoku Army. The Doji are individually quite weak but very numerous, drawing their strength from their numbers and the various weapons they wield.

They appear to have a fundamental understanding of tactics in some circumstances, but rarely apply it after making contact with the enemy. Generally, it would seem that all Doji Purification Troops are rated at Private due to their cowardice and lack of individual initiative unless under extreme circumstances. However, these undesirable traits were eliminated to some degree by the inclusion of a Purification Troop Captain, Rasho, in each squad.

Eternal Life: As demigods, the Doji have eternal life and are unable to age.

Vacuum Adaptation: As demigods, the Doji are able to survive in outer space unaided and without any form of discomfort. They are not affected by the lack of atmosphere and increased level of cosmic radiation.

Equipment

Colossi

Khakkhara: The Doji's main weapon is a golden polearm that served a similar purpose to Ancient Rome's Pilum, being utilized as an effective melee weapon or tossed at enemies from afar (though they rarely exhibit the latter behavior ingame).

Large Shield: In some occasions the Doji can also use a large golden shield to fight alongside one another in defensive formations.

Aerial Lotus Pod: The Doji often appear riding floating platforms shaped like a lotus flower. These aerial lotus pods allow the Doji to fly and fire Mantra blasts from afar.

Lotus Pod: Assault pods that send Doji and Rasho soldiers to the battlefront. Ideal for drop missions as they are able to drop the soldiers into advantageous locations with pinpoint accuracy.

Wheel: One-wheeled transports used by Rasho and Doji soldiers. The soldiers ride them by clinging on to the side of the wheel. They have excellent mobility and can transport soldiers at high speed regardless of the terrain.

Trivia

  • The aerial lotus pod that the Doji pilots seems to be based on the Lotus throne/platform, a stylized lotus flower used as the seat or base for a figure in art associated with Hindu-Buddhist religions.
    • In Sanskrit, the throne is called either a padmāsana (Sanskrit: पद्मासन, [pɐdmaːsɐnɐ], āsana is the name for a seated position), which is also the name for the Lotus position in meditation and yoga, or padmapitha, padma meaning lotus and pitha a base or plinth.
      • The padmāsana is shown in the Doji concept art, where a Doji soldier is seated in the Lotus position on a Lotus throne, which looks similar to the Aerial Lotus Pod.
