Nuregami (Aqueous God) is the Celestial Brush God of water and the Celestial Brush Technique Waterspout (Sui-gō, Riverside) which grants the ability to control water. She takes the form of a snake in a corked round flask and had hid among the constellations to escape the evil of the world below but was revealed by the revival of a dried up hot spring. She is one of the few original brush gods from Ōkami to return in Ōkamiden but her child is the one who speaks to Chibiterasu.
The thirteen Celestial Brush Techniques are each a different brush stroke, mark, or symbol capable of controlling the time, elements, environment, ect as "good brush work has its own soul" and have taken on the form of one of the Chinese zodiac animals. They are born of and wielded by the sun goddess Amaterasu for whom they hold great respect as their ‘mother’. Anyone can use the Celestial Brush Techniques but years of practice are needed to master them unlike Amaterasu who is the only one known to have and been able to possess all thirteen techniques. A Celestial Brush Technique can be canceled out by drawing the same symbol over it.
