Yato had many bad attitude, but secretly held the power of god.

Hiyori encountered Yato coincidentally, saving him from an oncoming bus. that very moment her soul was somehow tempered, giving her a tail, which was also her lifeline. Yukine was Yato's Shinki. he was an abused child, also a lost soul. despite having all the bad moments, Yato was unique in his own ways. he was smart and trying hard for people to believe in him. he was surprisingly, a god that was easily relatable.
