Tamagami is a character from Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse.
Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit
- "The defense minister of Japan during God's Plan. He went missing after the Yamato Reactor, which was housed under the Ministry of Defense, went haywire."
- —Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse Notes, entry - "Tamagami"
68 át the time of his disappearance, Tamagami was a former member of the JSDF before getting into politics. He became defense minister just before God's Plan happend, working with Country A to make the Demonica and the Counter-Demon Force, as well as perform inhumane experiments to make the National Defense Divinities and the Yamato Perpetual Reactor without consent from the government, which knew nothing of his secret operations.
The Patriots and others who worked for him do not know when it happened, or if they were always his true thoughts, but he was revealed to have been/degraded into an insane ultra-nationalist tying to make Japan the ultimate superpower, rewriting history in his own mind to make Japan a victim and to justify his atrocities, with a massive xenophobic outlook that rejects everything except his idea of an Ideal Japan. He disappeared when the Reactor was active during God's Plan, but his brain was preserved and possessed the living medium of Izanami and the love of Hiroshi, Noa, Her body went into stasis until a time where he could summon Izanami arrives and lead him to remake Japan by killing everyone in the current one.
He was stopped in the Challenge Quest Defeat the Ghosts by Nanashi, but the countless spirits and the death of his medium ensured a portal to Yomotsu Hirasaka and the release of Izanami would still happen in Where the Corpse Went. The Patriots dispose of his jar after his defeat to atone for their mistakes.
His actions are a major reason for why the events of Shin Megami Tensei IV and Apocalypse took place.
