- Purity, Beauty, Elegance, and Guidance all in one sublime form.
An Amatsuotome (あまつおとめ, Celestial Maiden) is a female being made completely of Philosophy. They are souls that instead of being made of Reishi are made of the divine none spiritual energy called Philosophy.
Amatsuotome are eternally young and beautiful female beings. They are the caretakers of the ancient heavenly world Paradiso. These females were once regular souls, however once in Paradiso they swam and died in the Philosophy ocean surrounding Paradiso through drowning. As when souls that die or are killed in Paradiso, they are revived these souls were revived with different forms and powers. The reishi that comprised their bodies were replaced with Philosophy. They were give immortality through eternal youth, as well as immense beauty.
The exact history of the Amatsuotome is greatly unknown except for several theories and myths. One myth is of the first Amatsuotome. During a great day in Paradise a woman of immense beauty and purify went swimming in an ocean of divine water. She stayed there for three days and nights and on the fourth morning she drown for being too weak. As she lay falling into the divine water the water remade her body. Giving her an eternal young and even a more beautiful body as for guilt for killing something of such purify. Thus started the Amatsuotome.
However Minako Kichida states that only parts of that myth are true. She did die in the Philosophy ocean in Paradiso by drowning. As Paradiso revives anyone killed or dies in Paradiso she was revived but remade of Philosophy. During her revival Philosophy water remade her body making her immortal and even more beautiful with great powers. Minako further states that all the other Amatsuotome were created in the same way. However as she did stay there for three days and nights her powers are greater than any other Amatsuotome.
