The Forbidden Flame must not perish... The Black Water must be contained. The Forbidden Flame must not perish... Protect the reliquaries from the Black Water. The Forbidden Flame must not perish... Watch over the pillars for eternity.


Flamekeepers were priests who watched over the Forbidden Flame, which was a sacred fire with a special significance in the rituals of Mt. Hikami. The flames drive away black water, but were too strong for the human eye to bear, which would explain why the Flamekeepers conceal their faces with veils. They also constructed Reliquaries in a workshop at the Hall of Fire, painting them with ink made from black water. The said sacred flame was also used to light the lanterns at the Shrine of the Ephemeral to ensure that the water remains pure as it flows down the mountain.

They were slaughtered together by Kyozo Kururugi during his murderous rampage across the mountain.
