Shin-jin (神人; lit. "God-People" or "Core-People") are a race of beings from Planet Kaishin. The Shin-jin are the true race all Kai and Kaioshin (Supreme Kais) come from before being given their respective role. Their planet holds roughly a population of 80 Shin-jin at one time.
The Shin-jins are born from magical fruits that grow off of the Kaiju trees. The average Shin-jin possesses special abilities that far surpass that of any sort of un-trained normal being. Shin-jins live leisurely lives, studying various things at a school-like castle. The Shin-jin are genderless, and their lifespan is roughly 75,000 years, however the Shin-jin born from golden magical fruits can live for millions upon millions of years.
Whenever one of the Kai on the Kai planets passes away, the Shin-jins draw lots among themselves to choose who will take the Kai's place and become a new Kai. The Supreme Kais, however, are chosen only from among Shin-jins born from a special golden fruit that is particularly rare.
Occasionally, there are Shin-jins who are born evil. Those delinquent Shin-jins are cast into the Demon Realm ruled by Makaioshin, where they live with the Makaio and live secluded from civilizations.
