Questions about Rai

Post by dornwolf »

Okay I've recently finished reading the first trade for Rai that was originally released. I've also got the early Unity issues where Rai dies. But from the looks of the #0 issues in the trade there's another Rai and from some of the previews in some of the issues I have there's another nother Rai. So the question is, HOW MANY BLOODY RAIS ARE THERE?

There have been many Rais. Rai (Tohru) took over the mantle from his father, who had followed others in turn. After the events of Unity, a new Rai was created named Takao Konishi. Later he would clash with another Rai. I don't want to go into too many details so as not to spoil it for you, but if you want to know more, here is the VALIANT Rai Wiki: http://the-book-of-geomancer.wikia.com/wiki/Rai

Just to give you an idea of how many there were, Tohru was the 42nd Rai. Valiant only focuses on a few of those however.

Off the top of my head - 45. Bloodshot was the prototype for Rai, so if you count him then 46.

The only true Rai, Tohru. (other than his 41 predecessors....)
