History: (Myth) - Ame-no-Mi-Kumari is the daughter of Minato-no-kami, god of rivers and estuaries, a member of an extradimensional race of beings known as the Kami who were worshipped as gods by the ancient people of modern Japan.

(Ares#5) - Ame-no-Mi-Kumari was deceived along with the other Kami by Inari, the messenger god, who claimed that he had received a gift of water from the gods of Olympus that indicated that their assitance was requested against the demonic armies of Mikaboshi. Ame-no-Mi-Kumari assisted the other Kami in battling Mikaboshi alongside the Olympians, and she returned the gift of water to Neptune, who was able to summon up a flood with it. Mikaboshi was defeated by the combined forces of the gods.
