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).

Appearance

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.

Synopsis

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]

Trivia

  • The character used for Moyu's true name, 望 (chosen reading unknown), means "to hope" or "to desire". It can also mean "full moon".
    • The character added for her given name, 喩 yu, means "metaphor".
  • Moyu's shinki form and alternative names as Tenjin's shinki have not been revealed.
    • Possible "true" name readings could be nozomu, nozomi, mochi or mochizuki.
    • Her most probable vessel name reading is 望器 bōki. Another, less likely reading is mōki.
