A Japanese god of disease and disaster, along with Hoso-gami, bearers of pestilence and death. They were reputed, however, to loathe both dogs and the color red, leading to the fabrication of dolls fashioned in red colors to banish them. Jizos, small protectors of children, also wore red to banish Yakubyou-gami.
Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King AbaddonEdit
"A evil god in Japanese lore that wanders through towns and villages to spread plague. Many regions build hay effigies of protective deities at the edge of their village to ward it off."
—Gouma-Den Devil Chart
He appears at the Dragon's Vein under the Capital. He invades the Sacred Stone which prevents earthquakes at the city above, reasoning that with the Luck Locust infestation above, he can manipulate the Stone and cause limitless earthquakes, bringing enormous amounts of misfortune and disaster to those above.
He confronts Raidou at the Dragon's Vein, but is defeated just as he realizes who his opponent is. Horrified, he fades as he realizes he has finally found an even more destructive force than he. Following his defeat, he can be fused at the Gouma-Den.
