Yosei (Japanese: (よう) (せい) ; rōmaji: Yōsei; literally: "Yang Star") was the great ryuu (divine dragon) of Kamigawa's plains and the guardian of Eiganjo.


Kami War[]

Yosei was summoned by Konda during the Kami War to fight against O-Kagachi. Half of his body was torn off in a battle against the Great Serpent. Still, Yosei defended Eiganjo Castle when it was attacked by hordes of akki. Yosei dies after defending the Castle.

Neon Dynasty[]

Along with the other ryuu, Yosei was reborn after a fifty-year slumber in an egg beneath Boseiju. His new form was that of Ao, the Dawn Sky.[1]
