Himoto is the Kami of the Spark from Kamigawa and the companion of the planeswalker Kaito Shizuki.


Himoto came into being the exact moment that the ermperor of Kamigawa was attacked by an metal-armed man and mysteriously disappeared.[1] She took the form of a tanuki, or raccoon dog, with glowing white eyes and translucent fur. She has multiple golden orbs spinning around her body, and has a layered voice.

She now lives in the mechanized origami tanuki robot that was designed by the Futurist moonfolk prodigy Tameshi. The robot protects her essence, and enables Tameshi to study her. He thinks that she embodies the relationship that the emperor shares with Kyodai and the spirit realm, and can have a radical effect on the merge gates.

Himoto was instrumental in igniting Kaito Shizuki's planeswalker's spark, after they decided to search for the emperor together. She has become me his companion in her robot form. She can also shapeshift her metal hull into a tanuki mask.
