:'''Shikigami''': Shikigami are spirits called forth to act as servants for the summoner, similar to a {{familiar}} in Western mythology. "Shiki", as they are sometimes known, literally means "equation", "formula" or "style" - a shikigami usually isn't bargained with so much as pulled from the aether and [[FormulaicMagic programmed with instructions]], and [[AIIsACrapshoot a misplaced command or loss of power can cause it to go berserk and turn on its creator]]. In modern representation, shikigami come in three main varieties:

:'''Gobosei (pentagram)''':In Japanese culture, this is a symbol of magical power, a diagram of the "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Xing#Overcoming overcoming cycle]]" of the [[ElementalPowers five Chinese elements]] (Wu Xing). A five-pointed star variant (leaving out the outside pentagon) is known as a ''Seiman'', the personal crest of Abe no Seimei.

:'''[[PaperTalisman [=Ofuda=]]]''':In modern Japanese literature, [=ofuda=] are always rectangles of paper with holy or magical symbols/spells written on them. They may be used to create a protective ward, seal a building, dispel evil influences, or even as a weapon against those of malign intent.

:'''Shikigami''':Shikigami (or sometimes just "shiki") are spirits called forth to act as servants for the summoner, similar to a {{familiar}} in Western mythology. In modern representation, shikigami come in two main varieties:
** A paper doll [[EyeOfNewt used as a focus]] to generate a [[MadeOfMagic magical construct]] shaped like a living creature, with varying levels of realism, power and intelligence depending on the amount of skill and/or magical energy used in its creation. The doll itself is left behind if the shikigami is dispelled.
** A pre-existing creature (usually an animal or a low-level {{Youkai}}) into which a shikigami spirit is summoned to grant it enhanced power and intelligence. More powerful servants are harder to control; Abe no Seimei's use of [[{{Youkai}} oni]] shikigami was a mark of his great skill.
