Featured In The Emperor's Soul

MaiPon is a sub-state of the Rose Empire. It was absorbed into the Rose Empire long prior to the event's of The Emperor's Soul.

The homeland of Forgery.[1][2] The power of a Forgery diminishes the further a forgery is from MaiPon, similar to how the Elantrian Aons function.[3] All Forgeries include a lithograph resembling MaiPon on the reverse side of the stamp.

The MaiPon are of the same ethnicity as the JinDo, but separated long ago. They are commonly mistaken by other cultures as being identical.[4] The MaiPon use chopsticks, known as MaiPon sticks, as eating utensils. The sticks were later adopted in JinDo culture.[5]

Physical Traits[edit]

The MaiPon are short of stature,[6] have dark brown skin and fine features.[7]


The early MaiPons worshipped meteors, which were termed as the souls of broken gods. Those meteors would be carved to bring out the shape of the gods.[2] It is believed that the history of carving was responsible for the invention and advancement of Forgery. Wan ShaiLu is from MaiPon, and is a follower of the God Beyond. It is unclear if the religion is common in MaiPon or unique to Shai.[6][2]
