Amate (アマテ Amate) is the queen of Royal Planet Kanon. She is one of the major characters in Ultraman Orb THE ORIGIN SAGA.
Ultraman Orb THE ORIGIN SAGA
Long ago, when Amate was young, her homeworld was attacked by the Kaijiu Gargorgon. Her mother, the previous queen, transformed into the giant named War Deity as the only force capable of defending Kanon. Exhausting her energy to defeat the monster, she perished before Amate's eyes while the latter was held back by Shinra.
In the present day, Kanon was under a huge crisis when Psychi threaten to attack the planet with Queen Bezelb and her brethren. Amate had no choice but to transform into the War Deity to fend off the Bezelb threat, after watching her citizens suffer and being pressured by her General, Raigo, to face the realities of the situation. Despite her intent to end the war peacefully, she was infected by the Kugutsu twice and almost endangered the entire universe when turned into a Kugutsu bomb. This were eventually negated through her bond with the human Shohei and the intervention of the Ultra Warriors. In aftermath of the battle, she consoled Psychi for his dreams and reminded him to work harder for it.
"The great spirit of the tree, the mysterious origin of life. Awaken now, eat my flesh, drink my blood and become one with me!"
