Bestiary Entry[edit | edit source]
Ancient god native to Japan. Still worshipped today by some, this wild-spirited god is known to sometimes mate with mortal women.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Atahabaki is believed to have been an ancient Japanese god of uncertain origins whose worship began roughly around 200AD.
There are many suggestions as to the nature of his worship - whether he was the god of iron smithing, of travellers, or nature, later becoming demonised due to worship by an enemy of the first Emperor of Japan.
However, the only previous mention of the god is in the Tōhoku Document (東日流外三郡誌), which may-or-may-not be a forgery, leaving the true history of the god uncertain.
