The Ministry of Purity is one of the many ministries of the Canthan empire. They have tasked themselves with cleansing the Afflicted since 1077 AE. It was founded by Minister Reiko Murakami after the return of Shiro Tagachi and the initial plague he caused.

Unlike the rest of the Celestial Ministry, the Ministry of Purity focuses on accomplishing things rather than paperwork. This in turn has raised their reputation among the people of Kaineng City. In the future of the Guild Wars universe, the Ministry of Purity will support Emperor Usoku in his efforts to isolate Cantha.[1]
