Tamashī no baransu was formed in early December of earth year 2011 by the shinigami-hollow Shigekuni Genryusai, though the organization itself was in the hearts and minds of him and others long before that time. created by a belief that the government that was supposed to watch over the balance of souls could no longer do their job properly due to petty squabbles among themselves. Shigekuni held onto this belief for more than a decade after being exiled from that society for a reason he could not rightly control. upon returning to Gaia-prime he was tracked down by that society whom attempted to kill him and those residing at his newly built home; The Spirit Villa.
During this long winded battle on the ground of his home Shigekuni and his allies forced the leader of the society to make herself known on the grounds which put a stop to the fighting due to her appearance. making an agreement with Shigekuni the leader of the society agreed to leave Shige and his alone, to not only restrict further bloodshed between the two sides but to settle things once and for all. seeing the power and honor that he held the leader of the society had him marked in their records as killed in action and dying honorably; though he was free to go the path that he chose for himself. this was the beginning of Tamashī no baransu.
The purpose of Tamashī no baransu is simply stated, but more intricately defined. the organization itself is a military force in its own right with leading members being defined in some cases as epic or god level entities. as a whole the group closely monitors the balance of souls entering Gaia-prime (through birth or other entry into this plane) and leaving it (through death and passing over or through other dimensional travel). the members of this organization fight those that upset that balance by devouring souls and making them vanish from the cycle of souls; usually killing and cleansing them so that their soul can return to the cycle and be reborn in a more positive entity.
Other than this main purpose Tamashī no baransu serves yet another purpose, one easily stated. being a military force under no government the organization fights for who and what it believes as a collective is right. this includes making and fighting for its allies whom it believes share similar stances on good when it comes to the plane of Gaia-prime. in times of war for these allies Tamashī no baransu serves as an additional section of that allies own military force, or serves as their military force if they do not have one. the organization fiercely protects those it has deemed allies as if they were part of itself.
These are the laws that govern the internal and external affairs of Tamashī no baransu. While their are exceptions to some laws there are those that are absolute, meaning there is no excuse for them being broken. all cases of laws being broken are reviewed and the punishments delivered if they are needed. while all members of the organization should know and obey the laws the main forces that deal with instances of violation are the internal and external affairs divisions.
1: The ultimate law is to maintain the balance of souls
2: It is against the law to attack a captain, to do so is treason*
3: It is against the law to steal from or attack another member*
4: It is against the law to interfere in matters outside Gaia-Prime**
5: It is against the law to purposefully create ill intent with the Tamashī no baransu name, to do so is an act of treason against the organization.
6: The use of forbidden arts is highly restricted to any member below the rank of captain. unsanctioned use of these arts is against the law.
*: There are exceptions to some or all of these laws, sanctioned matches may be formed for members who have issues between each other so that they can deal with these issues in a safe and watched over fashion.
