Inari, one of the twelve ancient Devas, is the manifestation of instinct. Almost as mischevious as Coyote, Inari has, at different points in the historical accounts, been shown manipulating emotions and personalities of others, especially fear and hunger for power. Mostly, she has used this ability on humans, but she has proven it to be effective on other Devas, as well – in one account, she is said to have driven Fenrir temporarily mad in a ploy for power over the other Devas. Because of these manipulatory abilities, she is commonly listed among the most powerful and influential of all the Devas. Inari is described as a white fox, often with nine tails.
