Deified Human of the Wind
Voice Lines
Temperament: Nagi

Nagi refers to a lull in the wind. The temperament befits the wind priestess Sanae, who can calm the wind. Sanae is endowed with Wood Phase, from her carefree nature that deviates from common sense, and Star Essence, from how she is not restrained by anything.

Ability: Capable of causing miracles

A miracle is a rare event that can only occur in the most incredible of circumstances. The bigger the miracle, the longer Sanae has to chant. A quick chant would only grant her a little miracle, whereas chanting for days might cause a miracle at the level of a natural disaster... Normally, Sanae only creates miracles as a way to show her ability, mostly when she is doing missionary work in the village. This ability originally required her to borrow power from Kanako and Suwako, but the wind priestess has become an object of faith herself - a living god - and it is unclear what god is making these miracles happen now.
