Momiji was pretty much a normal Japanese high school girl who just happened to have a family that ran a shrine in Izumo, the home of many Japanese myths and legends. Or at least that was what she thought until the orange-skinned plant-man came saying he had to kill her, the eight-headed serpent attacked her school, the adoptive father of the twin sister she never knew she had came to rescue her, she had a blue jewel called a “mitama” forcibly implanted in her chest by the eight-headed monster, and everybody started calling her “Princess Kushinada”. More excitingly, she shortly thereafter moved to Tokyo!
Momiji is a kind-hearted, energetic young girl with a tendancy to be a bit of a klutz. She really means well, but sometimes acts before she entirely thinks things through. She takes her responsibilities as the Kushinada very seriously – aside from the whole “human sacrifice to stop the aragami” part – to the point where she all-but-insisted she be allowed to formally join the TAC so she could participate in protecting people from aragami attacks.
Her and Kusanagi didn’t exactly get off to the best of starts, but once he stopped trying to kill her, she rapidly began to notice he was cute. And nice. Except when he wasn’t either, which is a little too often for her vocally-expressed tastes.
For some odd reason, Momiji has a tendancy to end up with her panties exposed for everyone to see on a daily basis. Sometimes this is assisted by Kusanagi, but more often her clumsiness and inexplicable preference for short skirts are her undoing. Aside from this special ability, she can also sense the movements of aragami through the mitama embedded in her chest, and sometimes communicate with them. Otherwise, she is a relatively normal teenage girl, with normal ability, perhaps even less athletically coordinated than most. She also carries a gun as a TAC member, which thankfully for everyone, she can usually aim with a reasonable degree of accuracy.
