While most of the characters and races in [[Nippon]] have ties to Japanese mythology, the members of the Oina tribe and the [[Poncle]] race all have roots deep within Ainu mythology, and these representations are not forgotten here either. [[Oki]] takes both his name and general appearance from the demigod Okikurmi, the embodiment of the life and hope in the land of the Ainu. Okikurmi is also believed to have been the father to the first Ainu, following his marriage to Kaipoku, who is represented in the Oina tribe as [[Kai]]. [[Kemu]] is reborn into the world of [[Kamui]] from the mountain god, Kemushiri, from whom he also takes his name. Kemushiri is notable for rescuing the sun goddess of Ainu mythology, [[wikipedia:Chup Kamuy|Chup Kamuy]] when she was abducted by a demon. [[Tuskle]] too pulls her name from Ainu mythology. The Tuskle appearing in old myths was a shamaness with an affinity for divinity and was a well-known [[wikipedia:Mediumship|medium]]. Now, little [[Lika]] may not be a famous goddess, but her name still holds a great deal of significance. In Itak, Lika's full name, Pirika, is an adjective that means "beautiful", "sacred", or "big". When coupled with the symbolism in her butterbur leaf mask—the root of which is commonly used to calm fevers, asthma, and colds—one can see the reason behind her being able to protect the icy land of [[Kamui]].
