Cute fact: In Hakuouki Memories of the Shinsengumi, it notes that Souji proposes to Chizuru in May 1869. Souji’s historical death is June of 1868, meaning that he surpasses his normal life span with with Chizuru in the happy ending
So apparently the “fourth heavenly pillar deity” are the Four Heavenly King. But the Fourth Heavenly King is
विरूपक्ख) which is
廣目天王 in Chinese but
広目天) in Japanese. I tried to use google traduc (forgive me I can’t speak japanese) and apparently the pronunciation of Virupakkha’s chinese name is not “Daiyonten Maou” in Japanese.
If Daiyonten Maou is an India God/Goddess that means we must check Hinduism mythology. The problem is I can’t find the real hinduism name of Daiyonten Maou. The Fourth Heavenly King are known as Lokapala (Guardians of the World) in Huindism culture. They are also the Guardians of the Direction…but they are eight. And the Fourth “King” (if we follow directions in Hindu tradition) is
Dakṣīṇa (South Direction). However for the Lokapala the Fourth is Nirrti (South-west) which is become more interesting…because Nirrti is the Mother of Rakshasa. Rakshasa are principal Onis inspiration with Yaoguai in China.
And you know what is pretty interesting ?! Nirrti is written निरृति and in japanese is written 羅刹…which means…”rasetsu”.
Wow. That’s pretty interesting. However guys, the problem is I don’t speak japanese so my translations are based on google traduc…and we all know that’s not the best way for translation. And at the end I’m not sure if Daiyonten Maou is Nirrti.
SO ! If you can speak japanese or have any information about this…please help
EDIT : Okay I checked again Daiyonten Maou. As I can find anything about the name of this God with these words, I tried to cut the words and find the meaning. “Yon” is “four”, “ten” is “heaven”, “dai” is “tall”/“big” and “maou” is “demon king”. Sooo that means Daiyonten Maou is the japanese word for The Fourth Heaven King. And Dakshina seems to be a Hinduism’s concept about South.
Soooo I guess we can say Suzuka Gozen is the daughter of Nirrti !
(And that means I will post in the following days my headcanons about Rakshasa, ochimizu and Yaoguai :D )
