Byakko is one of the four beast gods, and is known as the "White Tiger of the West." His shrine is located
in the country named Sairou (Xi-Lang), which is the western kingdom.
In mythology, the white tiger is associated with autumn, metal, the wind, and is the god of righteousness. He is also viewed as the king of animals. And, he displaced the kirin/qilin as the god of the west.
AppearanceIn his animal form, Byakko appears as a white tiger with yellow eyes. And, in his human form, Byakko retains his golden eyes, and has silver hair pulled back in a ponytail. He wears silver armour, which also has a white tiger pattern on it. As the other three gods do, he has a symbol on his forehead.
She is known to have been in love with the celestial warrior Tatara. Once she had summoned Byakko, she asked if they could stay together; but, Byakko denied them this, and the two were torn apart. However, even though they were in different worlds, both of them died at exactly the same time.
