Amaterasu (天照?) is a part of the Japanese myth cycle and also a major deity of the Shinto religion. She is the goddess of the sun, but also of the universe. The name Amaterasu derived from Amateru meaning "shining in heaven." The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-ōmikami, is "the great august kami (god) who shines in the heaven". The Emperor of Japan is said to be a direct descendant of Amaterasu.
Male and female versions of Okami (even though Amaterasu is definitely female...but Shiranui is sometimes referred to as a male.)

Finally time for Amaterasu. She is the goddess of the sun and mother of all the gods, but she is also the dog goddess. She has the power of Sunrise. http://konjo.sub.jp/o-kami/00.htm On pixv: 民
