Shin the Manipulator controls eight-inch-tall wooden puppets that are incredibly intricate. They have blood in their veins, and their features come to life imitating anything from a warrior, to the little girl down the street, to a loving couple out for a stroll. They are almost impossible to discern from real living beings. Shin can fill a whole square with puppets of these sorts. Without his command the puppets change back to their hewn faces, ragged clothes, wooden frames and even their steel swords seem to change back into a strip of wood.
