JIMMU-TENNO

Japanese legendary mortal

Also known as Emperor Jimmu, Kamu-Yamato, Kamu-Yamato-Iware-Hiko, Toyo-Mike-Nu

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

The son of Hoori and Tamayori-Hime, 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-Tenno — which is better than Jimmy.
