The Host, or kirasaand, is the vessel that holds Shada Kira to the mortal plane and prevents her from ascending to godhood. The original host was a Ctan girl but over the years several different races of both the human and demon planes have been selected. This included Drackan, Humans, Fae, and Emerr. Generally the Host is easily overpowered by Shada Kira, who use them as a meat puppet to enact her plans until the Host passes on naturally and she is forced to start anew in her next Host. Whenever Shada Kira is forced to transfer Hosts she takes a dramatic hit to her power, so it is to her benefit to keep a Host alive for as long as possible. Her current Host is Jess Kira.
