Moyu (望喩) is one of Tenjin's current shinki. She's part of a group of four female shinki who present themselves as "The Tenjin Sisters" (now consisting of only three members).


Moyu is, like most of Tenjin's shinki, a young woman. She has medium length straight dark brown hair tied in low twin tails, with some shorter locks resting on her forehead. Her eye color in a pale shade of somewhat greenish-yellow.

Moyu is dressed in a white kimono with a red hakama over it - the common set of clothing for shrine maidens worn by Tenjin's other female shinki, as well as Tsuyu.


Moyu first introduces herself when Yato and Yukine, along with Hiyori, come to accept Tenjin's request to eliminate a phantom that has settled in a certain railroad crossing.[1]

Sometime later, when Daikoku visits various shrines to find a shinki who would agree to take part in Yukine's purification ceremony, Moyu is once again seen along with the other "Tenjin Sisters", expressing unease over the possible consequences of a failed ceremony.[2]

After Miyu blights Tenjin for cutting her wrist, Moyu takes part in performing a purification ceremony on her before her banishment.[3]
