Byakko, normally used as messengers to the gods, can be many different animals.
Izumo's Byakko familiars possess the appearances of typical white foxes, with exceptions of distinctive markings on their faces and long tails. One has a red bow tied around its neck while the other wears a blue hood.
They are not always obidient and will easily go against their summoner if the summoner has lost faith, confidence and so on. They are very proud spirits and hence they often get into an arguement with Izumo. However, they are pleased by offerings such as paddy crops from honest people like Shiemi.
