*The world known as Ninjenkai to the normal humans were simply one facet of the whole planetary system. The other was Makai, which existed on it's own as a sort of separate layer to Ninjenkai. The latter was often viewed as the first layer with Makai being the second. The third layer of the Judgement world was Reikai ((Yes yes, I'm taking names from YYH)), which was often hidden from both layers, and was also the layer in which Divine Beings like Celeste and Inari rested.
The two youkai had taken their blond prisoner and hostage to one of Inari's 'Holy Places.' It was one of the three sites in the entire Makai in which everything was under Inari's total control, from the grain in the ground to the clouds in the sky. The Fox God however, had created this as a safe haven for his worshippers against divine retribution and the like before a trial, so there were specifics in the way the other Divine Beings, including their Clergy, could operate. Sukina and the two foxes knew this well, though the older needed to make a few rules clear*
Your siblings should find the children soon. It's a pity that they can't inform Reika-sama. Your Goddess cannot help you here, Child. Not even she can gather souls from this place unless Inari gives her permission. And with the size restrictions... *Smirks*
*Rolls his eyes at the older* She'll know quite well the youkai-sized restrictions and the powers as well. The form you take is the form that your power's unleashed. Your Goddess would have to take an animal form if she were to enter her, seeing as her normal and original form was a humanoid. She would be a Phoenix, wouldn't she?
((No divine powers allowed, with the exception being to Telekinesis and Telepathy. Others are up for debate. Have fun with the rescue mission!! If people join, that is. ^_^))
