Shikabane Hime are purified Shikabane that help Buddhist monks kill evil Shikabane.
Shikabane Hime are corpses that are brought back to life. Shikabane Hime can only be made from girls within a certain age and with certain circumstances. The reason for this is because the person who made the spell to make Shikabane Himes originally made it to bring back his dead daughter. Since then Kougon Sect monks have been making Shikabane Himes and using them to kill the monster Shikabanes that kill humans. Himes are not permitted to kill humans.
Shikabane Himes each have a unique weapon that they use in battle. They range from a giant hammer to a sniper rifle. Shikabane Himes are told that when they kill 108 Shikabanes they will be allowed to go to Heaven. If a Shikabane Himes contracted monk is killed they will either just die or will turn into regular Shikabane. If the latter happens, other Shikabane Himes are told to find and kill them.
