Ainu Sun Goddess ๐ŸŒž

Also known as Chup Kamuy, Tokap Chup Kamui, Tokapcup Kamuy

Role-switching Sun Goddess

The solar deity of the Ainu people. She is one of the Kamui.

Once upon a time she swapped places with her brother the Moon. That was because she couldnโ€™t keep up with the night life. More specifically, she hated to gaze down upon all the shocking naughty things humans get up to at night.

It was okay in small doses, like watching a soap opera. But a whole night of it was like being trapped in a sleazy movie theater during an extended sex-horror movie marathon.

Now the Moon has put up with all that depravity instead. You can tell what he feels about it just by looking at his face.
