Chibiterasu is a sun god and the son of Ōkami Amaterasu (aka Shiranui). Like his mom he is a white wolf with crimson markings only visible to those who have faith in him and wields the basic form of the reflector, rosary, and glaive. Chibiterasu can use the Celestial Brush like Amaterasu but his ink dose not replenish and the attacks are far weaker.
Nine months after his mother vanquished the evil beings that plagued Nippon they managed to return through unknown means. Fighting a battle on the Celestial Plain and again weakened by the peoples lack of faith in her, Amaterasu was forced to send her son to see to the matter. Arriving on the earth bewildered and confused Chibi quickly befriended Amaterasu's old companions or their children and set out to set things straight. Being significantly weaker than Amaterasu, Chibi teamed up with his new friends as they searched for the source of the evils return. Chibiterasu then returned to the Celestial Plain with Issun.
