|Izumo no kami|
Izumo-no-kami Mochizuki (望月出雲守, mochizuki izumo-no-kami) was a well-known Koga ninja. He appears in Pure Heart: Ninjutsu Chronicle; no-kami is a noble courtesy name.
Creation and ConceptEdit
Info on Izumo primarily states that he is the head of the Koga clan, and was nicknamed Koga Saburo (甲賀 三郎). Also, he seemed to have been skilled in smoke ninjutsu. There was also activity in the Chōkyō era (1487 -1489). It is said that he was like the Hanzo Hattori of Koga Ninja.
For his Seishin counterpart, very little ideas was thought of for Izumo until 2013, when it was decided to make him an addict to cannabis. The idea was inspired by the smoke ninjutsu, and a piece of art of Izumo with a beard and a kiseru pipe.
Kami is one of the administrative positions of the ritsuryo system called Shitokan (四等官), along with, "Suke", "jo", and "sakan". The "Kami" who uses 守 in their name is a kokushi of a province. Formal name is unknown.
In Seishin, Izumo is often seen with a kiseru (煙管) and well-known for working for Takayori Rokkaku (六角 高頼; d.1520). The only time izumo doesn't smoke is when he is in deep thought or when he is feasting with Takayori.
