Izumo Kamiki (神木出雲 Kamiki Izumo) is a female student at the Exorcism Cram School of True Cross Academy. Strong-willed, and something of a "tsundere (hot/cold personality)". She comes from a long line of shrine maidens, and was born with Heian Period noblewoman-like eyebrows. Although a top student, she is quite condescending towards her classmates, both in actions and words.
Izumo has dark red eyes and long dark purple hair, which she usually keeps in a twintails or a ponytail hairstyle. Her most notable trait would be her small, oval shaped eyebrows, which is why Rin Okumura calls her by the nickname polkabrows. Her outfit is primarily the school uniform. She has also been called "cute" by a young boy living near the beach.
Izumo maintains a very tsundere attitude most of the time, though it's mostly tsun and less dere. She is very cold and condescending towards those around her except for her friend Paku. She takes advantage of Shiemi, when Shiemi asks to be her friend, by essentially making Shiemi her servant. Paku, distraught that Izumo was taking advantage of an honest person, finally admitted to Izumo that she does not consider Izumo to be a true friend. However, she does occasionally show kindness. She was the first Exwire to accept Rin after learning that he was the son of Satan. She sat next to him on the train to Kyoto when no one else would. In the anime, she encouraged him on his candle training when he was frustrated. She is quite considerate even though she does not appear that way. She easily loses confidence when she sees her friends in distress but has slowly learned to stay calm and composed during battles.
Izumo was born in Inari, a sacred land that had been under the protection of the Byakko for generations. Izumo was a member of the Kamiki family, a family of mediums whose purpose was to quell the Nine-tails, a powerful Demon that was sealed within a stone known as the "Life-Taking Stone " which had the power to revive the dead and kill any who approached it. Because her family had interbred with the Byakko, Izumo was born with demonic blood. Because it had been many years since the Kamiki family was created, the Demon blood line had become so thin that there was now no difference between Izumo and a regular human. Izumo lived in the Inari shrine with her mother Tamamo and younger sister Tsukumo. Izumo's mother was the head priestess of the Inari Shrine at the time, and was charged with appeasing the spirit of the Nine-tails through a dance known as "Kamioroshi". Because of her Demon blood Izumo was able to see Demons while others could not. This caused her to be isolated for most of her childhood and, with the exception of Paku, grew up with no other friends. This caused Izumo to be distrustful of other people and she convinced herself that she couldn't rely on anyone. One day, while Izumo was attempting to imitate the Kamiroshi, she was approached by a strange short man named Michael Gedōin, a blonde woman, and two other gentlemen dressed in black. The woman said that they were from an organization known as the Illuminati. She then revealed that she was able to see the Byakko much to Izumo's shock, and said they came to research the Life-Taking Stone and asked if she could talked to her about it. Izumo was suspicious of the group and refused, but before she could leave the woman gave her a card with her name and number and said if anything happens to call them. Soon after Izumo began to notice a change in her mother's behaviour and began to grow concerned. Her suspicons were correct when one night she discovered her mother had been possessed by the Nine-tails who then tried to kill Izumo and Tsukumo. The Byakko protected Izumo and Tsukumo which gave them a chance to flee. Hurt and desperate, Izumo contacted Maria Yoshida and the possessed Tamamo was captured and Izumo and Tsukumo were taken into the Illuminati's custody under false promises of protection, unbeknown to them their mother was being brutally tortured and experimented on. After ten days in captivity, Izumo woke to find Tsukumo missing and was told by a remorseful Maria Yoshida that she had put her up for adoption in order to protect her. She then told Izumo to wait for her to come back so they could escape together but Izumo refused to trust her and tried to escape on her own. She was quickly caught and Maria was mercilessly executed in front of Izumo for her treachery. After witnissing the Illinati's cruelty Izumo agreed to do whatever they asked of her as long as they left Tsukumo alone.
True Cross Academy arcEdit
After brief appearances, Izumo is officially introduced when Shiemi want to befriend her and Paku. When Shiemi tries to talk to her and falls to the ground, Kamiki just comes out and calls her an "idiot". During class on Magic Circle with Igor, the class is explained the basic requirements to become a Tamer and are then welcome to find out if they have what it takes. Izumo readily invokes two spirits Byakko at once, earning praise from her teacher and classmates, who were with out this natural talent. Izumo also became shocked to see that Shiemi also has the talent to be a Tamer then summon a familiar greenman.
Shiemi again chasing her to try to be her friend, Izumo annoyed in the extreme, but accepted after a while believing she could make Shiemi her slave. To prepare students for the test Exwire, Yukio organizes a camp to prepare them in their dorm, similar to an abandoned building. There, Izumo decides to bathe with Paku, again being followed by Shiemi, but Izumo does not allow her entry, claiming that if she was her friend, she would understand. As always, Shiemi respected, but this behavior was leaving disappointed with her friend Paku. When Paku reveals she was quitting the course of exorcists, for failing to follow the lessons as well as others for not wanting to be friends with someone as bad Izumo, the two are suddenly attacked by a Ghoul.
Now Paku had been seriously injured by the demon, Byakko Kamiki summons her familiars to save them. Unfortunately, instead of listening to her orders, the Byakko turn against her because of her mixed feelings. Rin Okumura arrives in time to protect her and tells her to tear the paper contract, making her familiars disappear. Shiemi came soon after and told Rin to keep the Ghoul busy while she took care of injuries Paku. With the help of Yukio and the others, the Ghoul fled and Rin finds hidden Kamiki, crying because she felt useless by not being able to protect Paku. Rin gives her his shirt and tells her to hurry up and go.
She later thanks Shiemi for her help saving Paku.
Training Camp arcEdit
Izumo and Shiemi drew the magic circle while watching the boys build their tents. Shiemi, being somewhat anti-social in most of his life, called the boys of "strangers." Izumo says Shiemi is only strange in this, remembering when Shiemi and Paku went to her despite how Izumo scold her. As Shura resting in a tree, she is surprised at how quickly the girls to do the drawing, Izumo, then Shura also includes the group of strangers for their laziness. Completing the painting, the girls were cooking dinner. Izumo, which was not a good cook, like Shiemi, Rin is replaced by, which makes feast for all Izumo and that can be seen with the group was surprised with the culinary skills of Rin.
How the test to capture Stone Lanterns was about to begin, Izumo commented that she liked the idea of having only three lanterns, and therefore places for them, making against each other. So we gave up starting the exam, she called Mike and Uke to help. When Rin, Shiemi, Bon, Renzo and Konekomaru returned to the camp, they found that Izumo and Takara had already taken their torches, and Izumo cited that Takara was the first to succeed.
How Amaimon attacks the camp of Exwires, Izumo shows fear to know that was one of the Eight Kings and Demons is bathed with holy water along with the other students (except Rin for being half-demon). Shura also ordered them not to leave the inside of the protective barrier, but after the start of the showdown against Rin Amaimon, Bon is not controlled and will also join the fray, followed by Renzo and Konekomaru. Izumo uses words to make them stop, but they ignore and continue, causing her to call them idiots in your head.

Impure King Revival arcEdit
On the trip to Kyoto, Izumo sits next to Rin on the subway to the Shinkansen. After Shura explain their mission in Kyoto, Rin Izumo asks if she was afraid of him for being the son of Satan, the response of Izumo is that there are many people in this world pact with demons (probably also referring to herself ), and she was not afraid of him, and berates him for making something small into a storm in the teacup. As Rin claims that Izumo is a friendly person, she denies it. He also called her "eyebrows", she demanded that he called him by his name. So Rin thanks her with her name without prefixes (which in Japan indicates greater intimacy with the person referred to), leaving her blushing, but despite this, she asks not to call her without the honorable titles. Izumo then becomes more aggressive in its arguments, calling people fighting the good of others but flee in difficult times (referring to how Bon and Shiemi were treating Rin). Bon then gets angry and raises his voice against her, cursing her "cow" then.
Thereafter, Exwires are punished by angry Shura with Bariyons again because Bon and Izumo, Renzo noticed something. When it's the beginning to a fire caused by the blue flames in an attempt to save Rin Shiemi a Bariyon, Izumo summons Uke to use the Great Holy Wine of Heaven, in which she turned into a bowl to put out the flames with a sacred wine.
