"Origin: Japan. The son of Ookuninushi, a ruler of Izumo. He has the power to determine right and wrong, and governs oracles. Accounts vary about what happened to him after surrendering to Take-Mikazuchi. Some say he killed himself, some say he fled, and some say he served the god."
"A Japanese deity that governs oracles who appears in the books Kojiki and Nihon Shoki. His name means "god who knows all." The deeds of the priestesses of the ancient San'in region stood out, but it was none other than this god that gave them the oracles. There are theories that the priestesses worshiped a goddess, but was turned into a male god when incorporated into Japanese mythology."
