■水蛭子 / Hiruko Hiruko is the first child of Izanagi and Izanami. This god was born with a disability in his limbs ("蛭" means leech) . This poor child was put on a boat of reeds and abandoned in the sea. It is unknown what happened to him after that. According to other legends, Hiruko was washed ashore in Settsu-no-Kuni (currently around Hyogo and Osaka prefectures) and was raised by people.
■Meaning “水/- ” means ”water”. ”蛭/hiru” means ”leech” . “子/ko” means ”child”.
■Concept I drew it to look like a half-human half-fish because it was a god who couldn't take the form of a human. An image that is completely sealed and hidden at the bottom of the dark deep sea.
