Shrine Maiden (Shaman/Cleric)

A shrine maiden, or “miko” in the secret language of the temple shrines, is skilled in the ways of wards and healing, and blessed with a powerful connection to the spirit world that imbues her with both mystic knowledge and the ability to defend against the harmful and malicious spirits. Preferring to spend their time in quiet and meaningful meditation, shrine maidens are compassionate folk who are drawn from their sacred shrines by the prayers of sick and down trodden seeking aid and protection from malevolent spirits that roam and infest the lands. Whether it is the lost souls of the dead, or capricious fey creatures whose intentions are uncertain, the shrine maiden offers both healing and guidance to all who stand in need. Male shaman's who choose to follow this path are known as Shrine Priests. (Original Concept by JonathonWilder)

Spirit Magic: This is exactly like the shaman ability of the same name.
