A special forces team organized by the leader of the Chosokabe clan, Amenominakanushi. Largely comprised of risen Kyonshi, each member takes their name from one of the original gods of creation in Japanese mythology. This reflects the desire of Chosokabe Motochika, now known as Amenominakanushi, to bring a new genesis upon the country.
The Kotoamatsukami, who report directly to the Daimyo, were tasked with special operations in other clan’s holdings, mostly away from Shikoku. They were responsible for an undead uprising in Yamato province, quickly quelled by the Hashinara clan, as well as the slaughter of every priest at Kongobu-ji. One of the group’s members, Takamimusubi, headed the invasion of Kii province, but was killed by Ryuuzaki Sanosuke after holding Wakayama for only a few days.
Currently, all known members, save for Amenominakanushi and someone known only as Kanetsugu, have been captured by the Hashinara clan. Each of the Kyonshi have been magically brought under Hashinara control, and now act as bodyguards to the clan’s high-ranking generals.
