Though she is one of the two ruling queens of the country Astanea, no living being knows of her true origins. Amaterasu-omikami and her younger sister, Tsukuyomi-no-Mikoto, appeared during the tumultuous era referred to by historians as “The Age of Chaos.” During this time, the two made themselves known to all with their defeat of Eris, a powerful God of Chaos, who had single-handedly brought life as the people knew it to the brink of destruction. What can be found of the old stories tell us that the twin deities together managed to summon an even greater ancient power from an unknown source, and use it transform Eris into stone, thus freeing the people of the world.

After this incident Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi restructured Astanea’s government, shaping it from an oligarchy into a diarchy, and took up the position of the nation’s ruling sovereigns. They rule their nation to this day, standing ever vigilant against any threats to their people.

When she allows herself to be viewed, Amaterasu is usually seen during the daytime, and guides her people with an air of honor and nobility. If she must fight, she personally favors use of either a katana, which is seen as a weapon of nobility, or the unique sword "Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi (Sword of Billowing Rainclouds) a powerful wind controlling sword given to her by a brother deity years ago to settle a past dispute.

Amaterasu-omikami, or simply Amaterasu, is a goddess of the sun, and her name is derived from the meaning of “Great August Goddess whom shines from the heavens.” (Amaterasu: Shining in the Heavens, O: Great, Mi: Majestic or watcher, kami: God)
