Iyo is a Japanese spirit, formerly a very important one. Her most common physical form is that of a small girl in a red cowl and skirt, resembling the stereotypical vision of Little Red Riding Hood. When Shikoku is riding her, her personality becomes much more sadistic and vengeful, and she delights in the misery of those around her.


Two-Faced - Iyo likes nothing more than to help others, at the cost of a fate point she add +3 to any healing Roll. When Shikoku is the dominant personality however, she can add +3 to any Melee attack roll.


Iyo Can Help! - Iyo has extreme difficultly refusing to help anyone with their problems, even if they're incredibly personal.
Can Hurt, Too - On the flipside, Shikoku has to often restrain himself from taking advantage of a situation that would end up in his advantage…usually violently.
Dead God's Mark - Tricking Izanami into letting her out of her 6 years of servitude has caused her to be watched heavily by the Mistress of Death - which in turn means both Iyo and Shikoku will likely downright refuse to deal with any kind of death, or death related things. She also has a brand of a black hand burnt into her neck, which burns when Izanami is near.

Parting Gift: May make one guaranteed +2 roll on a 4df.

Personal History

Iyo began life less as a child and more as an errant thought of an alien mind. She was put on Earth to tend to the then self-titled Iyo region of Japan, keeping the peace of the land. When rampant miltarism swept the country in the Feudal eras, her creator god added an aspect to her personality - that of the vengeful male sprit, Shikoku. During her time as Shikoku, she weathered the Imperial Revolution and both World Wars, and encouraged them subtlely in various ways. After a run-in with The Foundation's Omega 23 MTF and the goddess of death, she fled to the library, in the hopes that she will be forgotten there.
