Yago in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle
More Character Titles
Yago Ametsukana (天目津金 ヤゴ Ametsukana Yago) is a god able to forge any weapon and who supplied weaponry for both the Dragonfly Army and Devanagara during the war between both factions. Their ultimate wish is to create a weapon suitable for themself. They are the extra stage boss of the Haze route in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle.
- Creating weapons
They have the ability to create any kind of weapon, but only such weapon is completed when it finds a suitable owner for use. Presumably, the weapons that surround them in their portrait are those that they have created. In Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle they provided weapons for both factions, while remaining as a neutral party. Among their known creations are the Tasouken, Kunimitsu Ooya's Bankuruwase and Taira no Fumikado's personal club.
Their full name is Yago Ametsukana (天目津金 ヤゴ). Their first name, Yago (ヤゴ), is the Japanese word for dragonfly larvae, nymphs or naiads. Their last name, Ametsukana (天目津金), may be a reference to Ame-no-mahitotsu no kami (天目一箇神), the one-eyed god of the heavens. A god of iron making and blacksmithing, which may be why Yago has an eye covered by a mask. Also called Ame-no-mahitotsu tsune no mikoto (天之麻比止都禰命) and Ame-no-kushimahitotsu no mikoto (天久斯麻比止都命), amongst many other names. Their last name may also be a reference to Tsukane (津金), a port area of Nagoya, in the Aichi prefecture.
Yago Ametsukana wears a short, red kimono with brown, black and white straps and a black dress with white stripes. They have a brown eye, the other is covered by a white cloth with light blue dots. They have brown hair and wear a red hyottoko mask. They are carrying a sheathed sword with gold decorations and various knives float around them. They also wear a knee pad and have some metal covering their calf. They wear 2 different shoes: one that is covered in metal and somewhat resembles a knight's footwear and a maroon-coloured shoe.
Yago was entrusted by Fumikado's grandfather to look out for them on their path towards becoming the New Emperor, giving them advice through "revelations".
Yago assisted Iwakado in hunting oni and beasts for building a new body for Taira no Masakado. Yago is a trusted friend of Iwakado, and was entrusted with looking out for Fumikado on their path towards becoming the New Emperor.
While they do not know each other on a personal level, as they are both gods, they know of each other's names and faces.
- According to JynX, Yago's left foot looks the way it does as it was altered from their original foot after it had "gone bad" due to work-related reasons.
- The surname "Ametsukana" may not be Yago's actual name but the title of their position as a god, as indicated by the Preschool Team's Haze Extra Scenario, where Yago wanted to recruit Sukune as the next "Ametsukana".
