KAMU-YAMATO

Japanese legendary mortal

Also known as KAMU-YAMATO-IWARE-HIKO, TOYO-MIKE-NU, JIMMU-TENO

The first human Emperor of Japan. Well, fairly human.

The son of HOORI and TAMAYON-HINE, his grandmother was a Dragon and his dad was a God, so he was something out of the ordinary. In fact he was so important that they gave him an extra name: Toyo-Mike-Nu. But they probably just called him Mike. He got to be Emperor, but this may not have happened until after he died and he got to be called Jimmu-teno — which is better than Jimmy.
