Abe no Seimei (921 - 1005)
An onmyoji of the mid-Heian period. He gained the trust of Fujiwara no Michinaga, securing the Abe clan's status as famed onmyoji. Their authority lasted into the Meiji period. His mother was said to be the white fox spirit Kuzunoha, and many other legends about him remain. He once put an orange inside a box and challenged his rival, Ashiya Doman, to guess the contents using his spiritual powers. When Doman guessed correctly, Seimei used his magic to transform the orange into a rat to prove Doman wrong.
