Meet the Mascots!

 Every year, FreeCon and its Promotions team work together

to create original characters that correspond with the convention’s theme.

Taiyou is bold, fiery and passionate compared to her brother Tsuki. She may be daring and outspoken most of the time, but she has a soft spot for her brother. Taiyou’s inspired by the sun goddess Amaterasu, frequently found in Japanese mythology and in the Shinto religion. Her name also is the English translation of the word “sun” in Japanese.

In contrast to Taiyou’s outspoken and fiery personality, Tsuki is the shy and meeker of the two. He and his sister are very close. He is inspired by the moon god Tsukuyomi, found in Japanese mythology and in the Shinto religion. His name also is the English translation of the word “moon” in Japanese.
