He has also chosen to align himself with Amaterasu. She has bequeathed him with gifts he still does not understand the full grasp of, but will forever be thankful for. First among these gifts are his two Sheele, Kagami and Tama. Kagami arrived when Abe no Seimei performed a ritual to provide Aotsuki with a Sheele. Aotsuki gave a piece of himself to the ritual, and received Yata no Kagami in return, who introduced herself as simply Kagami. She allows Aotsuki to see what normal eyes cannot with her mirror and is often able to notice even the smallest issues in their surroundings.
Tama arrived after Aotsuki had proven himself in a conflict with the Champion of Amaterasu , Hizashi. Hizashi provided Aotsuki with a dilemma, a lesson in the values Amaterasu holds dear. When he showed that he understood his position was not to judge and pass judgement, but to help and forgive, Hizashi allowed Aotsuki to receive the item, Yasakani no Magatama. This, too, was a sheele, who appeared and introduced herself as Tama. Ever since, Aotsuki has been overjoyed to have these two with him, but also constantly anxious about the idea of losing one of them due to his own foolishness. He is still slowly piecing together how exactly he will attempt to retrieve the Kusanagi no Tsurugi from Musashibō Benkei in an honorable manner.
Amaterasu also bequeaths her followers with distinct blessings, aimed at making the world a brighter place for those who live in it. Aotsuki has used these blessings to cure sickness, bring hope to others, allow his allies to overcome harmful effects, and even bring individuals back from death. However, each time he helps a soul cross that threshold, he needs to give up another piece of his strength. He is often more than willing to make this sacrifice.
Apparel & Accessories
He has carried the same sword with him since before joining on with the Hashinara - A long, single edged Falchion. He found it tucked away on his parent's farm when he was a young boy, and asked to bring it with him when he left to join the recently deposed Daimyo. His father reluctantly agreed, but also seemed confused when Aotsuki revealed the blade, openly wondering where it came from. His mother remained silent during the exchange.
When he needs to appear in an official capacity, he is often seen wearing a cloak made of a shimmering, color shifting fabric over his clothing or armor.. This was given to him by Hosokawa Gracia , and she mentioned that she had received it from .
Savvies & Ineptitudes
Likes & Dislikes
He can't abide by those who would use their strength to abuse others below them. But since that's common among normal folks, he also finds that he doesn't particularly enjoy constant, repeating sounds. He simply does not know what to do when faced with a person who refuses to budge on a point that he feels they are approaching or looking at the wrong way. This sort of individual will frustrate him, but he is able to keep himself in check and deal with the situation at hand. Katabuchi Yodo.
