Yato is a minor deity who lacks even a single shrine. In order to build his own shrine, he will need some help. Hiyori, the daughter of a respectable family, is almost in a traffic accident, but is rescued by Yato. This causes her to chase Yato down, and they begin to work together. Yato also finds a boy named Yukine who becomes a "sacred treasure" that can be used by a god. The three of them battle "you" who brings harm to humans as Yato's hidden history is gradually revealed.
He is also known to actually like kids. However, Yato and Kofuku like to tease this trait of his, making him sound like a pedophile (which he isn’t).
Aside from that Daikoku can be overprotective, especially towards Kofuku. As Kofuku, the God of Poverty, brings disaster wherever she goes, he does not allow Kofuku to go anywhere without his permission. However Kofuku dislikes this overprotective nature of his.
Daikoku is also considered a reliable person. Yato tells Hiyori to go ask for Daikoku and Kofuku’s help should something happens to him.
Abilities and Skills
Daikoku has a special ability and displays only one skill as a shinki.
* Vent-opening / Gloom-summoning This is a special ability only attainable as Kofuku’s weapon Kokki. When Kofuku waves Kokki, she is able to force a Vent to open and summon a huge amount of Gloom. This ability is considered scary by many of the gods, befitting of her nickname “Queen of Bad Luck”.
* Boundary This is a skill attainable to all shinki in human form. So far he used this ability twice: The first was to separate himself and Kofuku from a blighted Yato, Hiyori and Yukine in chapter 10; and he also used it together with Kazuma and Mayu to perform the purification ritual towards Yukine in chapter 11. In the anime he used this skill for the same purposes in episodes 8 and 9.
