The village of Artichu is a relatively small community situated beside a lake. The residents are largely wealthy, in large ornate homes true to the eastern culture. Gently sloped tile roofs adorn each home, with decorative koi ponds in the yards of some of the larger ones. In the village's center is a small mound of flowers, a ceremonial red arch to the north and west. To the east is a hill, on which sits a small shrine to forgotten gods and ancestors, cared for by a single lonely resident. The village is peaceful, its residents enjoying their small community, though it is not without its troubles.
The home of the Tao family stands here, disused since it was vacated by Toxic and Rena. The house has a dark history, and it is rumored to be haunted by restless spirit, a rumor that has not been confirmed.
