Amemasu (アメマス) or Ō-amemasu (大アメマス) is a giant whale- or fish-like creature from Ainu folklore. It lives in Lake Mashu in Hokkaidō and capsizes boats, creates earthquakes and causes other disasters.
In one tale, the amemasu swallows a deer that has come down to the lake to drink, but the deer's antler tears open the great fish's belly and kills it. The amemasu's enormous corpse then blocks up the lake and puts it in danger of flooding. A god in the form of a bird warns the people in villages nearby. The villagers upstream escape to higher ground, but the people downstream, not believing the bird, find the amemasu's body and drag it out of the lake, after which the water comes rushing out with such force that everything downriver is washed away. That area is now the flat Konsengen'ya plain.
Amemasu is also a name given to the white-spotted char, Salvelinus leucomaenis leucomaenis.

Blue: I visited a friend tonight and a opossum walked across my path as I went to her door....then when I came home the same thing happened but as I walked to my own door. What an interesting coincidence! I will take the advice it gives me.

Obviously: One can prove that magic works to themselves by attempting different spells and having positive results that match up with their intention. This is how one proves anything by use of experiment. Anything other than that is simple self-delusion.
