Izanagi and Izanami
General Info

Izanagi is the male counterpart and older brother of Izanami and is a creation god in Japanese mythology. He was the father of many deities until Izamani died giving birth to Kagutsuchi, the fire god. This led Izanagi to kill Kagutsuchi in a fit of rage. He then attempted to rescue his wife from the underworld, but saw her now-monstrous features in spie of promising not to look at her. Izagani was chased out of the underworld and created three more deities during a cleansing ritual; Amaterasu, Susanoo and Tsukuyomi.
