Born from a tear in IZANAGI’s left eye, while TSUKIYOMI, the Moon God, was born from his right.
She had to take refuge in a cave following a bit of domestic violence caused by SUSANOO. This caused a stoppage of sunlight and she had to be lured outside the barricaded entrance which involved a jewelled necklace and her reflection in a mirror.
