Aotake (青竹) is Numano Himemiko's familiar.
Aotake is a hot-headed and impulsive person. However, he respects Himemiko a lot and is easily angered at those who insult her.
Himemiko is his master and someone whom he respects greatly.
Aotake is well aware of Tomoe's past and judged him by so. He was angered when Tomoe insulted Himemiko and; consequently, he insulted Nanami, this time angering Tomoe, who turned Aotake into a fish using his leaves.
- Aotake literally means 'green bamboo'.
