Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium World

The Sacred Guardians, known as the High Priests ( (ろく) (しん) (かん) Rokushinkan "Six Priests"[Notes 1]) in the Japanese version, were six of the strongest individuals chosen to serve the Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt. A position filled by many, however the most notable is the group that guarded Pharaoh Atem 3,000 years ago. The six Priests that were deemed to be worthy on serving the Pharaoh also had access to six of the Millennium Items (with the Pharaoh himself always wielding the Millennium Puzzle) to ensure the Pharaoh's safety, as well as to utilize their power to bring justice to Egypt. Notably, after retiring his position and item to Shada, Shimon Muran became the Pharaoh's Grand Vizier.

  1. The word shinkan, literally "official of gods", strictly refers to a Shinto occupation. However, in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh!, it gains broader meanings, similarly to the word 巫女 (みこ) miko.
