Note: We have presented the Kappa-Kannushi cleric archetype here almost as a full class instead of in the more simple archetype format. However, it is just an archetype and should not be confused with a full class.
The kappa-kannushi cleric archetype seeks to promote unity and understanding between self and nature. He may serve in a remote, isolated shrine (often only reachable through exhausting physical exertion), or he may be on a quest of self-actualization, seeking to prove himself by confronting a series of challenges. The Kappa-kannushi combines an animistic world-view with a goal of self-perfection.
They draw their power from both kami (nature spirits) and internal strength. While most Kappakannushi are kappa, the archetype is open to all.

A Kappa-kannushi has the following class features:
Kappa-kannushi are proficient with all simple weapons, light armor and small shields.
The Kappa-kannushi can cast command against kami, fey or elementals a number of times per day equal to his Charisma modifier (minimum once). Even such creatures as would normally be immune to mind-affecting effects are subject to this power.
A Kappa-kannushi has access to the following domains: Air, Animal, Death, Earth, Fire, Healing, Plant, Strength, and Water.
The Kappa-kannushi does not require a divine-focus to cast his divine spells or channel energy. He draws the power from within himself.
