The young but highly accomplished head of the Yashiro Comission's Kamisato Clan. Cultured and polite, he is a man of many ways and means.

Ayato Story Overview

Head Of The Kamisato Clan

Ayato is known to be the head of the Kamisato Clan, brother of Ayaka and a good friend of Thoma. Based on the other Inazuma character voicelines, Ayato seems to be a mischievous guy and a workaholic person.

Voicelines About Kamisato Ayato

Voicelines About Kamisato Ayato
AyakaAyakaAs the head of the Kamisato Clan, brother always has a full schedule of places he needs to be. I do try my best to share his load, but there is no changing the pressure he is subjected to all year round, and the toll it takes upon him. *sigh* If you see him, remind him to take care of himself, for his sister's sake...
SayuSayuSometimes, when I'm taking a rest up in a tree, I overhear the shrine maidens talking about him. Sounds like he's pretty important and super busy most of the time. I don't get it, though - it's only work, or whatever, so why doesn't he just...not do it?
Raiden ShogunRaiden ShogunKamisato... One of the most distinguished clans in all of Inazuma. Despite Ayato's trickery in regard to the Tri-Commission's affairs, he is nevertheless a loyal subject. His past misdeeds shall be excused.
IttoIttoHaha, I only wish I could have met Ayato sooner. He really taught me something. "You can kindle the warrior spirit even in the weakest of bugs"... Yep, I really took that one to heart. If it weren't for those words of wisdom, I'm pretty sure I would have given up beetle fighting after losing for the 780th time... Yeah, I guess sometimes it takes a warrior to understand a warrior. When we're playing trading card games or battling beetles, we're always totally on the same wavelength.
