It is not surprising that the Tian Xia goddess Daikitsu is a common object of veneration given that she has the everyday subjects of rice, agriculture, and craftsmanship under her divine purview.[1]

Appearance

Daikitsu appears as a beautiful kitsune woman with snow-white fur and nine tails.[1]

Holy symbol

Daikitsu's holy symbol is that of a nine-tailed fox.[1]

Relationships

Nalinivati, the patron goddess of nagas and the snake-like humanoids known as the nagaji, has been romantically linked with the Daikitsu, although both deities deny this claim.[2]

Church of Daikitsu

Daikitsu is widely venerated across Tian Xia as her role as a goddess of rice and agriculture ensures many seek her favour. Farmers seek her blessing to ensure fertile fields and good harvests; smiths and craftsmen worship her aspect as a patron of artifice; and families pray to her for safety. Daikitsu is also worshipped as the patron of the kitsune people and has many followers amongst them.[1]

While worshipped across Tian Xia, Daikitsu's largest centres of worship are: within the Forest of Spirits, where many kitsune reside; the samurai nation of Minkai; and Shokuro that used to serve as the breadbasket of the former empire of Lung Wa.[1]
