"An ever curious and jumpy goddess, you would believe if she were human than wolf, and even should you believe that divinity would act higher and lofty than mere mortals, one's piety will soon show her true loftiness in ways you cannot imagine."
Amaterasu, or Okami Amaterasu is the main protagonist and majestic goddess of Nippon from the game Okami.
In the world of Okami, in the far eastern land of Nippon, its reaches were soon engulfed in terrible corruption and darkness. Through the prayers of Sakuyahime, the guardian deity whose power waned to protect the land over the years, Amaterasu comes back to the world once more under the guise of the legendary guardian wolf Shiranui, to beat back evil, its legions of demonic forces, and restore her lands and people in peace and harmony.
Upon her ascension to the mortal plane, Amaterasu soon follows the desperate prayers of a goddess from a distant world beyond the boundaries of her own. While under the limits of her own physical canine body, greatly holding back her true divine powers, yet having allowed her to slip past the exclusion of divine interference in the Dissidia, she does not care about such trivial things- A goddess and their wills shall always shine through, even if mortal!
