Daikoku

Daikoku was the Fortune of Wealth and one of the Seven Fortunes. He was the patron of merchants and farmers.

Appearance
The Fortune of Wealth toyed with a small hammer as a curious little rat ran about by his feet. The rat devoured the rice Daikoku spilled everywhere he went, and Daikoku used the magical hammer to grant wishes for those who display cleverness. He was always represented with a permanent smile in his blissful aspect, which was widely represented in the gambling houses. His wrathful aspect showed him with a sword in each hand, his face twisted into an angry grimace, his mouth very wide and full of fire.

Blessing and Curses
Daikoku was the most mischievous Fortune, and often traveled the Empire in disguise to sate his curiosity regarding mortals. Daikoku was slow to anger. Those who angered him could find their life’s work reduced to nothing in an instant, their fields turned barren and their valuable possessions crumbled to dust.
