Being abandoned at a young age and thinking that nobody cared about him, Okami was destined to become the bringer of destruction and death among any who opposed him. Lost during his childhood, he stumbled upon the Gods of the Deserts and they granted him the ability to control sand and wind. His sword is enveloped with both these powers and can summon mighty sandstorms in the blink of an eye. His massive hammer can summon the spirits of those who have died in the deserts to fight for him. Okami is the ruler of the desert. And if one hears the howling of the wind in the desert, then they know that death will soon be upon them.
