Dai Tengu (大天狗 Dai Tengu) is a Kami-class spirit associated with the Asakura Family. It was first summoned by Asakura Yohken to defeat Hao during the Shaman Fights 500 years ago. It is currently the guardian ghost of Tamamura Tamao.
The greatest of the Shikigami spirits, Dai Tengu can only be summoned and controlled by those who have undergone extreme ascetic training.
After Tamamura Tamao trained with the spirit of Yohken, during her high school years, she inherited the spirit and gained the strength to control it. She has been seen using it to scare both her employees and Asakura Hana.
