At the behest of Miroku, he was tasked with raising the young racoon-dog for an unknown purpose and decided to do so by putting him to work. Fourteen years later, he has Takechiyo assist him on errands and keeping an eye on Moroha as he goes off on her bounty-hunting missions.


He keeps insisting that she owes him a debt of an immense fortune for an unknown reason. Moroha makes a living collecting parts of slain yōkai for him. He values her work, but still takes a hefty cut of the bounties she collects, going so far as to deny payment for the head of Tōkotsu when proof of his demise is scattered by Setsuna and Towa. Acknowledging her skill, and perhaps to keep her from being an inconvenient and dangerous presence, he directs her towards other yōkai in need of slaying.
