Persona Ref || Spirit-Okami by Spirit-Okami Persona Ref || Spirit-Okami by Spirit-Okami
This took me so damn long to finish jfc
Wolves in Japanese folklore were known to ward off evil spirits and they were known as the messengers for the gods. Unlike in Europe where wolves were feared, evil, and blah blah blah they were highly respected in Japan. Farmers would often leave food or an offering for the wolves to protect their cops from deer and boars. Okurio Okami or wolf escorts would follow and protect someone until they have reached their homes without any harm. There is a shrine in Chichibu in the Kanto region where it is dedicated to wolves and it's where I would love to visit ;;;
Spirit would live near the shrine to protect it from evil spirit tbh along with her two faithful wolf pets, Shiro and Kuro. Inspired by the werewolf legend, Spirit can transform into a full ghostly wolf but only on a full moon. Oh and she's wearing hakama pants  8U
The painting on this is called Full Moon in Musashi by Yoshitoshi who painted it in 1890. 

Ok I'm tired bye
