A powerful entity, and a major figure in the Shinto Religion, he is perhaps one of the most important and revered deities in Japanese mythology. He is well respected amongst his fellow gods, and is loved by his children dearly, especially Amaterasu, whom he has doted on. He rules over Takamagahara, and over the other Shinto Deities as the Divine Ruler. He is also known by the names of Izanagi-no-Mikoto, and Izanagi-no-Okami.
Izanagi seems to share some sort of unknown connection to Reishou Suzuya, as one of the Sacred Regalia Treasures, the Yasaka Magatama, was entrusted to him, as per his orders. Furthermore, Amaterasu refers to Rei as "Big Brother," further implying a relationship between the two.
Izanagi is a well-aged man with waist-length hair and shoulder-length bangs framing the sides of his face, covering most of his right eye, but had prominent creases under each of his eyes. He wore crimson armor with numerous metal plates, forming protective guards along his chest, waist, shoulders and thighs. He also wore black gloves. He also sports crimson red eyes.
While he has yet to make any real appearances in the story, Izanagi has been known by many to be a very loyal to the Shinto Gods, and a doting father, as he often spoils Amaterasu whenever he has been given the opportunity. He also appears to have some sort of connection to Rei Suzuya, as he was willing to trust him with the Yasaka Magatama.
