(Deity)TAMON-TEN

Also known as TAMON
In a nutshell ...
God of : Protection
Religion : Buddhism
Attributes : coming soon ...
Gang : Shi-Tenno

One of the quartet of Heavenly Kings known collectively as Shi Tenno. They guard the four points of the compass and protect against nasty demon attack.

North is the most dangerous direction so it makes sense to have Tamon-ten, aka Bishamon, standing guard there. He's armed with a stupa containing ashes of the Buddha and being as tough as tigers toenails makes him the leader of the gang. Known in India as Vaisravana, his favourite color is black... as in black eyes. Pow!

If he sounds too good to be true that's because he is also one of the Shichi-Fukujin - the seven Gods of good fortune.
