Also known as the "Storm Dragon", Amatsu is an Elder Dragon with a unique body structure, similar to that of sea life, but floats in midair. Its body is covered with fin-like protrusions, and has a small head in relation to the rest of its body. Its body mass is assumed to be quite light, as it is able to literally swim through the storm that is always surrounding it. It resides on the Sacred Mountain, a mountain located in the Yukumo region near the Misty Peaks. It is said to be the personification of the storm and its power is comparable to a natural disaster. As a result, its appearance has become a Yakumo Village tradition.
In-Game Description: A legendary elder dragon spotted on Sacred Pinnacle. An avatar of storms in the folklore of Yukumo Village, Amatsu's appearance is accompanied by furious cyclones and horrific storms. Its fearsome power is said to outscale that of natural disasters.
