A Renketsu is a squarish ring implanted over the bridge of a nose and is worn by those in Kuritan society trained "in the ways of love". With a comparison to the education of a MechWarrior, the men and women who wear the nose ring are trained not only in the sexual arts from a young age, but also those of many other arts and sciences, and are considered to be highly sought after and educated partners.[1]

One practitioner was known as the Little Dragon.[1]
