!!Shino Inuzuka
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TetsuyaKakihara (Japanese), Creator/GregAyres (English)
* AdaptationDyeJob: Both his hair and eye color are brown in the manga.
%%* BadassAdorable:
* BadassLongCoat: His usual outfit.
* BrattyHalfPint: Half of the time, he acts like this. He proves to have sharp mind at certain situations, however.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Has this for Hamaji. It's the reason why he and Sousuke came to the capital in the first place anyway. He also has this for Kaho.
* BigEater: He packs food away like nobody's business... except Liver. He hates that.
* TheDeterminator: If he determines to do something, he won't stop.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: He was raised as a girl due to his home village's belief that it can cure his illness. [[spoiler:Also, his adult form.]]
* GreenEyes: Anime only, and it fits with his status as Murasame's vessel. Has a hint of [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]] in them as well.
* HeroicResolve: [[spoiler:Still managed to crawl up to Tamazusa-hime and demand Sousuke's Duty Gem back... while bleeding profusely.]]
* IllBoy: Was one in his past, and apparently he can only live on because of Murasame.
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: His fear of the living dead, and dirty, filthy things (like bugs and rats) has a few people call him a "delicate girl" at heart.
* MakeAWish: It's noted that if he wishes for something strongly enough it will happen. [[spoiler:His wish for Sousuke and Kohaku to live longer ultimately extended their lives.]]
* TheNapoleon: He's shorter than most of the people he works with.
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: [[spoiler:Came ''dangerously'' close to this after his row with Sousuke. Thankfully, Sousuke survived thanks to Shino's wish.]]
* TheNoseKnows: He could smell that Kohaku only had a little more time life to live.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is suppose to be 18 but is cursed by Murasama to remain the same age as when he became his host.
* PingPongNaivete: Though he's really [[[OlderThanTheyLook 18]] at times he truly acts like the age he appears to be. Even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] at times by others. And at others he comes across as much wiser than his years and more in tune to what is going on.
* PowerAtAPrice: Shino can use Murasame, something no one else can, but the price is that it stunted his growth and will eventually led him to a horrible death, at least according to Satomi.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:When he goes after Satomi for his blood, he has bright red eyes.]]
* SceneryCensor: When he takes bath with Shinobu in episode 22, at one point he stands completely naked...except that Murasame conveniently covers his private part. And it is hilarious.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Tamazusa-hime would have successfully assimilated Fuse-hime...if it weren't for Shino's strong wish for Sousuke to live on, which Fuse-hime's spirit granted.]]
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: For Shinobu]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Meat!
* WholesomeCrossdresser: As a child, and at one point when Daikaku tries to make a model based on him.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: When he was ill as a child. It is also stated that if he were to remove Murasame from his body and become a normal boy, he would die in a few days due to the illness still intact in his body.
* VampireBitesSuck: [[spoiler:Happens if Murasame forces him to get more blood.]]

!!Sousuke Inukawa
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SatoshiHino (Japanese), Leraldo Anzaldua (English)
* AngerBornOfWorry: The only time Sousuke gets mad is when Shino makes light of nearly dying in Episode 11.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Definitely has this for Shino. Also to Hamaji and Kaho to a lesser extent.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Shino.
* TheCaretaker: He looks after the others.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Prone to this in early episodes.
* ChickMagnet: Implied.
* TheComicallySerious: When he is not being DeadpanSnarker, he is this.
* DamagedSoul: [[spoiler:He's missing half his soul, which became Ao. Their pet dog ended up shoring up the necessary bits for him to keep living with the duty gem.]]
* DeadpanSnarker and TheGadfly: Plenty of his lines has him play as Shino's long-suffering caretaker just to tick Shino off.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Well, to all dogs, anyway. Yatsufusa is no exception. Children also seem to take liking to him.
* HeroesLoveDogs: Sousuke tends to treat all dogs he comes across well. In turn, they are literally attracted to him to the extent that some people wonder if he's a dog-whisperer in Episode 2. Hamaji mentions that animals in general love him.
* HeroicDog: He can turn into one.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: [[spoiler:Ao]] is his other half.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Can be seen as one for Shino, which also drove the events in the last three episodes.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Shakes off even severe injuries like they are nothing. [[spoiler:He literally can't feel pain, which can and does become a problem if he suffers a life-threatening injury without realizing it.]]
* MomentOfWeakness: During the New Moon on the 29th of the month, he becomes so sleepy that he can barely function at all.
* ParentalAbandonment: Sousuke's parents disappeared before he lived with Shino.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: His dog form may count.
* TraumaInducedAmnesia or LaserGuidedAmnesia: It is not clear which applies, but Sousuke doesn't remember a thing from his past. [[spoiler:At one point he remembers a brief part of it, Ao is around.]]
* UndyingLoyalty to Shino, which Shino often mentally calls him out for.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter: He can go back and forth between his human and dog form.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: In episode 19, it's revealed that Sousuke is a minor, much to Genpachi and Kobungo's surprise.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Apparently, now that the Duty Gem has chosen Ao over him.]]

!!Genpachi Inukai
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomoakiMaeno (Japanese), Creator/AndrewLove (English)
* BungledSuicide: After his fiancee's death, he repeatedly attempted to commit suicide only to be stopped by Kobungo and his own immortality. No matter how many times he tried, he simply couldn't make it stick.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: His attachment to Shino and {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies aside, he seems to be a competent officer.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Early on, he is on the receiving end of this by Seiran.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: A bit of one.
* DrivenToSuicide: Genpachi tried to killed himself numerous times after the death of his fiancee, but his HealingFactor is so strong that he survived having his throat slit and shooting himself in the head.
* FairCop: He's a military officer.
* HealingFactor: He and his brother-in-law gained this after being on the brink of death and revived by their beads.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Seems to have this attitude towards Shino.
* TheLostLenore: His fiancee, who is also Kobungo's sister. He seems to be over it VERY quickly, though. [[spoiler: Or rather, he already exhausted himself mourning for her and decided it's about time to live.]]
* LoveAtFirstSight: To Shino. Not ''quite'' first sight, but applies nonetheless considering the circumstances.
* NiceHat: In his officer's uniform.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: He'll come back if killed.
* ShockAndAwe: In demon form.

!!Kobungo Inuta
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakumaTerashima (Japanese), Mark X. Laskowski (English)
* BlowYouAway: In his demon form.

* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Often ends as this for Genpachi.
* CrashIntoHello: His first two encounters with Shino have him landing above Shino's body, knocking the poor kid unconscious.
* HealingFactor: He and his brother-in-law gained this after being on the brink of death and revived by their beads.
* OnlySaneMan: At times.
* RealMenCook[=/=]SupremeChef: Since he's been running the inn with his family, he learned to cook.
* ResurrectiveImmortality: Same as his brother-in-law. They're virtually unkillable.

!!Keno Inusaka
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunichiMiyake (Japanese), Creator/IllichGuardiola (season 1), Creator/IanSinclair (season 2) (English)
* AncestralWeapon: His family's blade has been passed down for generations, with him currently using it.
* BestServedCold[=/=]ItsPersonal: His unfinished business with [[spoiler: Sousuke's shadow, Ao.]]
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Not with a spoon but he did lose his heart with a sword... poor guy. At least Kokonoe gave him her heart.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: To the point Kobungo and Dousetsu are fooled.
* InSeriesNickname: Kokonoe refers to him as "Asakeno". Once they get to know each other, so does Genpachi at times.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Sees Kokonoe as both a mother and sister since she saved him.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Probably the prettiest character in the whole series.
* MasterSwordsman: He's considered one of the most skilled swordsman. He explained he needed to be able to use his AncestralWeapon and built the skill up to match.
* TheNoseKnows: He could smell Sousuke and Shino weren't entirely human when they first met.
* TheTeamNormal: Or as close as one of the eight dogs could be to normal. Unlike the others Keno's familiar/companion doesn't grant him any mystical abilities that he uses in combat, or outside of combat for that matter. Kokonoe just gave him her heart.
** BadassNormal: But he can still fight toe to toe with Ao.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Well, unsettling for Kobungo, anyway. To be fair, he never even attempts to hide his gender.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: In episode 19, it's revealed that Keno is a minor like Sousuke except that Genpachi, Kobungo, Shino, ''and'' Sousuke were all surprised at the reveal.

!!Dousetsu Inuyama
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShinichiroMiki (Japanese), Houston Hayes (English)
* CowardlyLion: He doesn't react as well as other characters to the oddities going around him early on. PlayedForLaughs.
* {{Determinator}}: Will find his sister no matter what. Also the reason why Yukihime chose to help him.
* AnIcePerson: Thanks to Yukihime.
* LongLostRelative: His sister Mutsuki, [[spoiler:better known as Hamaji]].
* LoveMartyr: Puts up with ''[[ClingyJealousGirl quite]] [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend a]] [[SatelliteLoveInterest lot]]'' from Yukihime.
* {{Megane}}: Has a nifty pair of glasses.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:Let's just say he had the worst possible timing for showing up to help fight Tamazusa-hime, considering his Gem was the last one needed to resurrect Fuse-hime...]]
* SnowMeansDeath: It was snowing when he was on the verge of death.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Or pink in this case.

!!Daikaku Inumura
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenjiroTsuda (Japanese), Mike Yager (English)
* AbusiveParents: His real father.
* BigBrotherInstinct: The first thing that came to his mind when he was near death was to get his sister's medicine.

* TheStoic: Compared to other characters, he doesn't have broad range of expressions.
* ThirdEye: Hidden under his headband that can kill spirits.
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Apparently suffers one after his near-death experience, which makes him forget that [[spoiler:both of his fathers have died]]. It is unclear whether his sister also suffers it, however.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TsubasaYonaga (Japanese), Creator/LuciChristian (English)
* BlowYouAway: Gains command over wind after coming into his power.
* ClassRepresentative: Of the elementary school he attends.
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Daddies]]: Was raised for ten years by his father and uncle, who both seem to have considered him their son. [[spoiler:Both of them willingly give up half their lives to save him and die to keep him safe.]]
* HeavySleeper: He is noted to have this trait after his disappearance, and after [[spoiler:Akihiko]]'s "[[DeadAllAlong death]]", he sleeps for an entire week.
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: According to his grandmother, Shinobu's father was/is a Tengu. Incidentally inhuman Dad treated him much better than his human mom ever did.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Apparently has his memories during his time with Kagetsu sealed.
* OlderThanHeLooks: Is technically twenty-two, but was missing for ten years during which he didn't age. Unlike Shino, he has resumed normal aging.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Coming into his Tengu powers gives him these.
* RaisedByGrandparents: His grandmother took care of him after his mother died falling off a cliff.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler:When Ao is about to kill Hazuki in episode 22, Shinobu attempts to stop him.]]


[[folder: Houses of the Sacred Beasts]]

!!Rio Satomi
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroshiKamiya (Japanese), Creator/DavidMatranga (English)

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: A high-ranking official with the Church.
* BadassPreacher: He's a part of the Church.
* {{Bishounen}}: Lampshaded repeatedly. It's practically the reason why he's the Church's golden boy. His own familiar follows him for this reason.
* FamousAncestor: [[spoiler:He is the descendant of Fuse-hime.]]
* LongLostRelative: A conversation with Kaname implies that he's this to Shino.
** [[spoiler:Another conversation implies that they're brothers.]]
* TheStoic

!!Kaname Osaki
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (Japanese), Creator/BlakeShepard (English)
* BerserkButton: Do '''NOT''' mess with Hamaji.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: One of the silliest guys you'll see in the series, and once he is pissed, you'll suddenly remember that he is part of the Four Houses for a reason.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to with [[spoiler:Seiran]]'s Cain. His mother was a concubine to [[spoiler:Seiran's]] father.
* ChivalrousPervert
** LadyKillerInLove: Despite his reputation as a player, he's apparently met his match with [[{{Tsundere}} Hamaji]].
* KnightInShiningArmor: And played not in entirely positive light. He does nothing despite knowing Seiran's ColdBloodedTorture to Genpachi, and it isn't until [[spoiler:one of his insects gives Hamaji a papercut]] that Kaname finally takes action.
* PluckyComicRelief: When he is not pissed, he always ends as this thanks to Hamaji's attitude.
* ShipTease: With Hamaji, who does seem to like him back.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: His reaction to [[spoiler:one of Seiran's insects cutting Hamaji's cheek]] in a nutshell. He mentions that he never once hated the man until that moment, only pitied him.

!!Ayane Mizuki
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SatomiAkesaka (Japanese), Creator/BrittneyKarbowski (English)
* HeroicAlbino: She has short white hair and red eyes, similar to Chikage. She finds her own appearance unsettling to others.
* IllGirl: Her body is weak, which is part of the reason that Chikage can't let her leave often from her side.
* LonelyRichKid: She's essentially the owner of the manor the Sacred Beast Holders live in, but is lonely until Shino and Hamaji showed up.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: It's mentioned that the children of her clan are sensitive to the energy of others.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: At one points she walks into Sousuke sleeping on Shino's lap...to which she blushes and runs away until he calls her back.
* {{Protectorate}}: To Chikage, both due to similar appearances and being the last of her Mizuki clan.

!!Nachi Hinozuka
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeijiFujiwara (Japanese), David Wald (English)
* CoolOldGuy
* ISeeDeadPeople: A vague example. [[spoiler: His brother Yuuri was originally Kaede's master but he couldn't see him. Kaede chose Nachi as his second master because he could see him]].
* KindHeartedCatLover: His familiar is a cat named Kaede.
* SettleForSibling: He is the second master to Kaede after Yuuri rejected him.


[[folder: Spirits and Familiars]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto (Japanese), Creator/GregAyres (English)

* AnimalMotif: A crow.
* AntiMagic: According to Saitomi, Murasame can tear through all magic.
* BigEater: Eats as much as Shino.
* BodyHorror: It is part of Shino's arm now, and when we see Murasame emerging from his arm, it is disturbing.
* CoolSword:[[LivingWeapon It is one]].
** KatanasAreJustBetter: Especially demonic ones.
** WeaponOfXSlaying: According to Satiomi, Murasame is a sword that can kill spirits of all kind. Even ''Gods''.
* TheDreaded: Chikage mentions that she dreads Murasame because even she, a goddess, can be slain by it.
* MomentOfWeakness: The New Moon on the 29th of the month leaves Murasame quiet and inactive compared to normal.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Literally, and twice! The first time around it crashed on Shinonome's barrier, causing heavy downpour on the mountains before said guardian went berserk. The second time, it crashed on ''another'' barrier surrounding the Church, causing Lilith to come out and out for Shino's blood. In episode 22, Shino actually considers weaponising this to break the barrier in the tengu territory.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Any time Shino is mortally wounded, Murasame is able to take over completely, becoming a colossal, nigh-unstoppable canine demon hell-bent on devouring enough blood to undo the damage Shino sustained, most often by [[ImAHumanitarian eating someone whole outright]]. Only ThePowerOfFriendship, courtesy of Sousuke, has been shown to be able to make him snap out of it.]]
* PowerAtAPrice: Its previous wielders have been said not to meet pleasant end with their lives.
* TalkingAnimal: It often speaks to Shino.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Refers to itself in the third person.
* WeatherManipulation: Can call down rain.

* HeadPet: Likes to perch itself on Shino's head, but usually Murasame is there first.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: It's basically a giant fuzz-ball with an eye on the front and mouth on the back.
* SleepModeSize: It's small enough to fit in a pocket, but give it water and it swells in size to the point that you can ride on it.

* CanisMajor: It's a huge, white Inugami.

!!The Foxes
* BewareTheSillyOnes: They're funny, but Kaname points out that when anyone tries to get rid of him they turn vengeful and heads roll as a result.
* ButtMonkey: Hamaji is quite a slave-driver to them.
* KillerRabbit: Despite their cutesy appearance, once Kaname is pissed and wants them to kill, they ''will'' kill.
* PluckyComicRelief: They're mostly there for a laugh, like when Hamaji bosses them around.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: In their tiny form.
* ShipperOnDeck: Briefly muse with each other the episode that Hamaji moves to the school dorms that she is perfectly suitable as a future bride of Kaname.

!!Chikage \ Hibiki
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MihoArakawa (Japanese), Allison Sumrall (English)
* AnimalMotif: Snakes.
* DefrostingIceQueen: At the beginning of her introductory episode, she was willing to kill/maim Shino and Sousuke for trespassing in her domain. By the end, she thanks Shino for mediating between her and the Osaki to give Ayane a little more freedom, tells him her true name, and places her trust in him.
* GuardianEntity: To the Mizuki Clan and Ayane. It's noted that her clan originally owned the house the rest of the group uses and she would devour anyone who set foot on the property before they made a deal that left it forbidden for anyone other than Ayane to enter one side of the house.
* HeroicBSOD: PlayedForLaughs. When she comes dangerously close to killing Shino and Sousuke just because they happen to step on her territory, going so far as to demand Sousuke's arm in penitence until Ayane appears and calls her "mean" while running away, causing her to briefly suffer this.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Has long white hair that flows down her back.
* {{Orochi}}: Shino refers to her as one, citing that her true body is so huge that the earth would tremble if she moves because she is a goddess. This, unfortunately, anchors her to the property so that she can't leave it when Ayane wants to go somewhere.
* PoisonousPerson: Come with the Snake Goddess territory.

!!Kokonoe \ Yasha-hime
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NaomiShindo (Japanese), Carli Mosier (English)

Also known as Yasha-hime.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She remains calm, composed, and quiet most of the time.
* CoolBigSis: Is this to Keno, and to Shino to an extent.
* TheHyena: At least, in one of the next-episode previews.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MamikoNoto (Japanese), Creator/NancyNovotny (English)
* AnIcePerson: She's a snow spirit.
* BerserkButton: Don't hurt Dousetsu or you'll lose an arm.
* ClingyJealousGirl[=/=]ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Certainly acts like one. While she means well for wanting to protect Dousetsu, she can go overboard with those blizzards of hers. PlayedForLaughs.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Blue eyes AND [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]].
* CuteMute: Lost her voice in order to uphold her contract with Dousetsu and save his life. Shino mentions she had a beautiful singing voice until then.
* Expy: Bears a very strong resemblance to another snow spirit character who also happens to be named Yukihime from Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-Kun. They both even share the same seiyuu, Mamiko Noto.
* HarmlessFreezing: She can do this to others. A monk that she froze remained that way for at least half-a-day without any problem.
* OnlyFriend: She cites that Shino was her only friend before she saved Dousetsu.
* ShipperOnDeck[=/=]YaoiFangirl: When Dousetsu is taken aback at Keno's beauty, she approves. This, or she is just trolling her master because she probably knows it won't end well.
* WomanInWhite: Wears a white kimono.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Has blue hair to match her eyes.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MasayaOnosaka (Japanese), David Wald (English)
* BlessedWithSuck: He originally chose Nachi's brother, Yuuri, to be his master but the latter could not see him. When he went to the mansion of the Sacred Beasts that had a special barrier that allowed the unseeable spirits to be seen, Yuuri was distraught with what he saw and retreated into seclusion. Thus he had to retreat his choice and chose Nachi who is able to see him.
* ButtMonkey: Mixed with the ChewToy in episodes he appears in. Mainly in episode 19.
* MegaNeko: Can transform into one.
* TheWorfEffect: When the shadow eaters ate his shadow. They spit them out later in episode 19.
* WhenSheSmiles: He chose Yuuri at first because he liked seeing Yuuri's smiles.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida (Japanese), Eric Daugherty (English)
* FriendToAllChildren: Tengu are known to be fond of children. Kagetsu is no exception as he raised Shinobu.
* PapaWolf: He gives Shinobu half of his life and ''died'' to protect him.
* PromotionToParent: Found a dying Shinobu as a child and raised him as his own.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MasakazuMorita (Japanese), Ty Mahany (English)
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:Tamazusa-hime reanimated his corpse, as a rather brutal KickTheDog to Shinobu. ''And'' to Ao, for that matter, considering he grievously wounded Shino in a fight.]]
* PapaWolf: Really, really pissed off with Ao after he [[spoiler: hurt Shinobu by accident.]] He flat out states it's a parent's job to protect their kid.
* PromotionToParent: After Kagetsu died, he is now responsible for Shinobu.

->'''Voiced by:''' [[spoiler: Creator/SatoshiHino]] (Japanese), [[spoiler:Leraldo Anzaldua]] (English)

* EyepatchOfPower: He loses it later on[[spoiler: after replacing his left eye with Kohaku's]].
* EyeScream: Had his left eye slashed through by Keno after he stole Keno's heart. This left him with a scar which he hides with an eyepatch.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Of Sousuke.
** SplitPersonalityTakeover: [[spoiler:In a sense. The Duty Gem appears to have picked him over Sousuke, which is killing the 'good' Sousuke, effectively making him the 'real' one despite being a Shadow.]]
* LivingShadow: Referred to as such. [[spoiler:There are hints that he is the real Sousuke, however.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Platonic or otherwise, his entire actions are driven because he wants to be with Shino.
* MasterSwordsman: Good enough with a blade to carve out Keno's heart, who is already a skilled swordsman.
* PetTheDog: He's actually genuinely nice to [[ChildrenAreInnocent Kaho]] the one time he meets her. Also, evil though he is, Shino is someone he holds precious.

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He was more than happy to help Tamazusa... until she mortally wounded Shino and decided Shino's going to be the [[DemonicPossession host]] for her dead child.]]

* [[spoiler:BiggerBad: Or at least, would have been one if it weren't for the wrench that Shino unintentionally threw to Tamazusa-hime's plan.]]
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan[=/=]SealedGoodInACan: By default, it should have been the latter due to the fact that she was the one who sealed Tamazusa-hime away. She came dangerously close becoming the former when Tamazusa-hime attempted to use her soul, though.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Masako Tatsuki (Japanese), Genevieve Simmons (English)
* TheBaroness

* HorrorHunger: [[spoiler:After having her soul severed, she's wracked with thirst of this nature. She ends up eating her best friend without even realizing it until it was too late.]]
* IllGirl: Although unnamed, she seems to suffer from late-stage tuberculosis.
** IncurableCoughOfDeath: A sign of her illness.
** YourDaysAreNumbered: She knew ahead of time that her illness was terminal.
* MadeASlave: She was sold into the brothel at 8, but didn't start working until she was old enough.
* MeaningfulName: Means "amber", befitting her eye color.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Shino has to do this to her to prevent her from losing her humanity even further.]]
* PeekABangs: After [[spoiler:Ao took one of her eyes.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MegumiNakajima (Japanese), Creator/NancyNovotny (English)
* DisappearedDad: See Daikaku's entry.
* IllGirl: Suffers from asthma.
* LockedIntoStrangeness: Possibly what happened to her, as the flashback showed her with black hair instead of white.

* ChildrenAreInnocent: So innocent.
* DisabilitySuperpower[=/=]HyperAwareness: Despite (or possibly due to) her blindness, the rest of Kaho's senses are much sharper, making her act most of the time as if she isn't blind.
* MoralityPet: Downplayed. Kaho is one of a few people Shino ''never'' gets angry at, and he also seems to be regularly concerned for her well-being.
** Also even ''[[TheDragon Ao]]'' is nice to her.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Among the orphans, she is the smallest one, and her intelligence is noted several times.

* AgeAppropriateAngst: She's a fourteen year old girl who was from birth raised and treated as the living embodiment of one half of the local deity. She also was constantly made to grant others wishes without any heed to her own.
* BoyishShortHair: After an ImportantHairCut, she has this [[spoiler: symbolizing her freedom from her previous bonds]].
* CastFromLifespan: Granting wishes takes from her life-force and slowly kills her.
* GenkiGirl: [[spoiler:Her new found freedom from her status as a "living deity" has given her quite a bit of energy and cheer.]]
* {{Hikikomori}}: Since she was born, she has never left the shrine. [[spoiler: Until she is freed from her "living deity" status.]]
* HimeCut: As a {{Miko}} and YamatoNadeshiko this hair style suits her.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Very much so; the main problem lies in that she refuses to voice or truly acknowledge said wish, which is why she and the village suffers so much. [[spoiler: Once she does, she gets her wish.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: Is very calm, cool, and composed. [[spoiler: This is [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] as very much an artificial mode of acting. Her natural personality is more energetic and cheerful.]]
