Kasugami (The Faint God) is the Celestial Brush God of time and the Celestial Brush Technique Veil of Mist (Kiri-komo, Mist-Hide) which grants the ability to temporarily slow down time. She takes the form of a drunken sheep carrying a large gourd on her back from which she frequently sips and of which the contents seem to be alcoholic. She was trapped in a flask by the Emperor but was freed when it’s seal was broken. She is one of many of the original brush gods from Ōkami to not return in Ōkamiden.
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.
