The Kami are the children of Amerterasu, Lady Sun and Onnotanngu, Lord Moon. When they were born, Onnotanngu was jealous of his children and began to eat them. Lady Sun was horrified and struck on a plan to save her children. As Lord Moon ate each child, she gave him a cup of sake. After the eighth cup, Onnotanngu fell asleep, allowing Amerterasu to hide the last child, Hantei from his father. Onnotanngu awoke believing that he had eaten all of the children. Hantei was trained by his mother to fight his father and when he was ready he revealed himself to Onnotanngu. Lord Moon was enraged. However the young Hantei defeated his father and sliced open his belly. The other children fell from their father’s open belly, to the Realm of Ningen-do. Hantei followed his brothers and sisters but didn’t see Lord Moon grab hold of the youngest Fu Leng. The Kami fell to Earth at the site that would become Otosan Uchi. There they found tribes of humans. With their powers the Kami became leaders of these tribes, and founded the Great Clans. To determine who would be Emperor the Kami held a tournament to see who would be crowned. Togashi, blessed with foresight, sat out the tournament knowing that he couldn’t win. Each of the Kami fought, until only Hantei was left standing. At the last, Togashi spoke a prophecy ‘When the last Akodo falls, so too does the last Hantei.’
Fu Leng, meanwhile, had fallen far from his siblings and ended up in jigoku. There, he became corrupted.
