It is thought that Oda Nobunaga (織田信長, Nobunaga Oda) is a vessel of Chikataka, a parasitic demon traveling through space to reach habitable worlds to propagate its influence through interspecies hybridization until the demon reached earth and created Oda as a vessel to carry on its will. As a priest of the species with which he names himself, "Tik'iek", he would carry out the will of his creator, Chikataka, The Old God, Over the centuries he would spread the religion of his gods to people across the nation until he came across an abandoned Uzumaki maiden wandering the world alone. With Oda's aid, he recruited and bred the first of the "Children of the Vessel".
Oda was born eons ago during the late six paths era. When the two sons clashed over the birthright of ninshū, Oda crashed landed in a neighboring nation and soon assimilated a few innocent bystanders, improving its appearance but lacked some facial features and bodily parts, so it continued to feed for the next three years. When it fed on enough humans, it was strong enough to survive without eating human flesh on its own; however, it remained in the forest to avoid being discovered, but will often kill if discovered. In 47 BNB, it adopted the name Oda, which it stole from a mighty samurai that was assimilated and replicated, taking the form of the mighty samurai Oda killed and seized land from demons and humans alike but avoided powerful beings such as dragons, tailed beasts, and *tsutsuki for fear that these creatures might threaten its existence and end up ruining its dream of spreading the belief in gods beyond the stars and producing enough children to serve its creator He would abduct victims and indoctrinate them into a new religion called "Children of the Abyss Sect" (深淵派の子供たち, Shin'en-ha no kodomo-tachi), from there he would gather followers and even harvest some of their essence to be assimilated by the priest of this new cult.
