One of the hosts of the Festival of Ancestors.
During the Festival, it was revealed that Asahina had attempted to call forth her brother’s spirit by using maho and using Matsu Tetsuko as a payment of equal exchange; however, she only succeeded in summoning The Faceless One, an oni capable of stealing individual’s faces who caused great mischief before being put down by samurai attending the festival. Unfortunately, Asahina Mitsuo was The Faceless One’s last victim before returning to the realm of Jigoku.
