This is quite nice. Just what I was looking for. :)

Do you have one like this? But Instead of having,  A Samurai, A Ninja, And a Citizen.
You have a Onmyouji, A Japaneses Monk, And a Miko(Shrine Maiden)?

I would really like to see these 3 stereotypes in your Art Form. :D
__________________________________________________
It's Kinda interesting to compare the 3.
There are 3 sets of things that are similar. (well... what stands out most)

Set-1
All 3 of them can cast Spells or Divine Rights.
1) Through Chanting. (Most common way)
2) Through Dancing. (Mostly common with Miko, and not the others. Tens to have a stronger affect.)
3) Through Hand Signs. (This is also common with Ninja. Depending on story.)

Set-2
There are at least 4 catalyst/mediums for them to cast their spell on.
1) Katana or a similar Blade.
 (This is the most offensive catalyst/medium. And there for works best with offensive Spells)
2) Prayer Beads.
 (A catalyst/medium which can Bind long-term Spells to things. And are not easily Broken)
3) Khakkhara also called a Monk Staff, Ringed Staff, or Sounding Staff.
 (This is the most Defensive catalyst/medium. And specialize in low powered aura Spells)
 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khakkhar…
4) Yumi Bow.
 (This catalyst/medium Is known for its accuracy and for greatly Increasing the range of Spells)

Set-3
There are 2 other Tools Common For these stereotypes.
1) All 3 use talismans. (Pre-made spells wright-en on paper. That can be cast instantly)
2) Shikigami or Familiars. (Man made Servants that can take on a Variety of forms and functions)
