|“||I am the Representative of Sacred Dragon.||”|
These women are in small numbers, but they can be seen all over the world.
They are selfless and affable, but they don't like to talk about their pasts. It is said that the Shamans are—or were—members of the Order of Remidia, or have something to do with it, and that claim is backed by the remarkable healing power that they have revealed time and again.
That's not, however, what makes them who they are. It's the Shamans. These Shamans are similar to the revelations of the Order, but while the revelations are based on the believers' faith, the Shamans are more dependent on the soothsayers. One must meet special qualifications to receive these Shamans, and these qualifications vary, depending on the god who gives them.
These Shamans worship the Sacred Dragon and there aren't many things known about this particular god. Based on the words of those who witnessed their rituals, I suspect he's one of the famous deities and mythical creatures of Suju. All the witnesses claimed that watching the rituals cleared their heads and cured mild illnesses. Such a phenomenon is popular among the worshippers of the Suju deities.
If you want a first-hand experience of their power, then look for famous accident sites and battlefields around you. The Shamans spend most of their time helping out the poor and needy or those who are haunted by evil, but they also involve themselves in big incidents and battles, should their Shamans dictate them. They prefer using amulets and rosary beads to localize their damage, to avoid hurting innocent bystanders, but if they decide that immediate action is required to minimize damage in the long run, then they can unleash their power as the messenger of the Sacred Dragon and destroy everything around them in the blink of an eye.
Armed with the ability to foresee the future, amulets to effectively subdue enemies, and the power of exorcism, the Shamans are better than anyone else at solving the mysterious phenomena that have been plaguing the continent. Even the conservative Order of Priests reluctantly has admitted its collaboration with the Shamans.

- Her subclass cosmetic effect is a small Dragon God that spirals around her before resting its head in her hand briefly and disappearing.
- Her 1st awakening cosmetic alters the appearance of the Oracle's staff.

- Her Neo Awakening cosmetic effect has the Shaman bowing down with the Dragon God spiraling around her alongside six sacred orbs floating above, before ascending with the orbs following him.

Awakening as an Oracle
Who's the Shaman in this portrait? The elegant and comely Oracle in the portrait is staring at me with her big, innocent eyes. Her oval face is void of fat, probably a result of her rigorous training but not haggard.
Most portraits, no matter how realistic they are, are flattering in some way to show respect to their subject. But not this portrait. It's raw and bare, without an ounce of pretentiousness. The Shaman in it is one of many priestesses whom I see on the streets every day, but there's one thing that sets her portrait apart from the others: the vivid illustration of a big blue dragon behind her.
Summoning the Sacred Dragon into the human realm requires a lot of faith and energy. Even an army of Shamans could barely summon a blurry image of the Sacred Dragon that is only as tall as a man. In other words, it's impossible for a Shaman to accompany such a big Scared Dragon, which makes this portrait the most unrealistic depiction I've ever seen.
Legend says Suju once was infested by monsters, and it was always dark, no matter the time. It was a no man's land.
Then, a traveling Shaman arrived at the darkest place in Suju. She chanted in an unknown language as if it was the most natural thing to do.
After some time, a gigantic Sacred Dragon descended from the sky, circling around her body and then a storm and thunder ensued. The blue light released from her body eradicated monsters it touched. When the storm passed, there was no trace of monsters left on earth. The people of Suju who witnessed this miracle called her the Oracle, and one of them painted her picture to remember her. If this legend holds true, the woman in this portrait is not just a regular Shaman—she's the Oracle, the greatest of all Shamans.
Some say the Oracles are not made, but chosen by the Sacred Dragon himself.
I don't care, either way. Legends are always full of many interesting—and conflicting—stories.

Awakening as a Divineress
It was the early autumn. The full moon was a few days ago.
A waning moon rose slowly over the Great Mountain,
pushing away the ancient darkness that resided in the mountain
and illuminating the spirits of autumn that sit on the windowsills,
telling each other the stories of old.
Maybe it was the balmy weather of that night that made me hope for an oracle
even though I know oracles can't be wanted
—they can only be given if the Sacred Dragon decides so.
When have I become so selfish? Why is my mind so restless?
Some time ago, I realized that I could sense upcoming oracles before they arrived.
That realization made me happy. I'd gotten closer to the Sacred Dragon.
I was no longer just a vessel for his oracles. I was the reader of his mind.
It was the greatest blessing for anyone who served him.
It was also the source of my selfishness and arrogance.
My mind is a swirling miasma of emotions and depressing thoughts
when his mystical oracle came through the small opening between the windows in my mind.
It wasn't as obscure and cryptic as his usual messages.
It was shards of his thoughts and emotions
and they flew in through the windows in my mind, piercing it where they hit.
Then they melted into an endless wave of energy and combined into one firm will.
The Sacred Dragon was enraged by the corruption of the world,
the loss of pure spirits, the plaguing evil, and chaos.
Dear Scared Dragon, the object of my worship,
the guide of my spirit and the symbol of my faith,
Use me to unleash your wrath. Punish your enemies
and the unholy with the power of your rainbow light.
