The official manga series reveals a little about the priestess, esspecially when compared to other characters.
We know that the Priestess of the Byakko beast god was once Suzuno Osugi. Takao Osugi is her father. Some family history, related to the Universe of the Four Gods book, is known. But it is more related to her father and his work than with the young priestess. She died at the age of 80.
