Norinaga is a powerful Ryujin, of which there are very few in the world. They are extremely cunning and conniving. You can bet on them to make elaborate schemes and political plots. Although they have a great deal of magical power, they are wary of fighting others head-on, and prefer to pull strings from behind the scenes. Their juvenile form is the Hanzaki, a tiny tadpole/salamander-like creature of which there are hundreds. But it takes thousands of years for a Hanzaki to become a Ryujin, and most do not survive long enough to ascend. Many are purposefully killed off by the existing Ryujin in order to maintain their own status.
