Running Round the Table
Parent of Jacob
Associated Epic Attributes:
Amaterasu is the supreme Queen of the Heavenly Plain, the reigning goddess of the Amatsukami and commander of heaven’s armies and courtiers alike. She is the goddess of the sun, sharing her light and splendor with the deserving, and the goddess of royalty and rightness as well. Nowhere else among the gods does a court as splendid or as regimented by politics and behavior exist as Amaterasu’s, and she recognizes no rival to her right to rule. Also a weaver goddess and patron of jewelcrafters, she represents perfection and exquisite beauty and expects the same of all who wish to be associated with her.
She is also Jacob’s mother – although she has a funny way of acting like it.
She seems aware of the enmity that Jacob shows to her – but is not willing to discuss this with him and smacked down any aggressive moves by him quickly when they first met.
One of her scions Kane Taoka tried to usurp her power through the use of the Black Feather Shroud – had this succeeded she would have been depowered or otherwise obliterated.
It was only the intervention of another one of her Scions Jacob Foad that stopped this, killing Kane in the process.
