TAKAMI-MUSUBI

Shinto Creator God

Also known as Takamimusubi-No-Kami

Rather dull Shinto Creator God

He is one of the three super supremos of Shintoism. In the beginning, at the creation of Heaven and Earth, he popped into existence all by himself.

Now he rules the Universe a bit, but so far as we can see he seems to spend most of his time on extended leave. He just turns up for important meetings with the Kami and then goes away again.

His partner is Amaterasu and he is the father of the tiny Godlet Sukuna-Bikona. They have far more interesting lives than he does.
