The ikigami witch. Her nature is purification. A witch who is constantly trying to wash away her uncleanliness. She pours water over her head for 24 hours a day, in order to wash away the impurities that stain her to her core. The many eyes on her tongue apparently have the power to see the future, but since she’s constantly troubled by the sight of her forever-unpurified future self, she can hardly be bothered to foresee anything else. Until the day when all of her impurities have been wiped clean, this witch’s rites will likely never end. She punishes those who interrupt her rites with lightning and water currents, and fatally sullies them with the impurities trickling off herself.

Minions of the ikigami witch. Their role is to be attendants. These minions are usually found swarming around the witch’s feet, attending to her needs. The water flowing from the witch’s purification rites will dissolve them on contact, forcing them to constantly rush back and forth, but they adore their master nonetheless. They never leave her side, eagerly awaiting the day when her purification is complete. They also happen to feed off the impurity that washes off from the witch, so it seems like they’ll be faced with a different problem if she’s ever completely purified.
