Fusa Takehara

Voiced by Risa Hayamizu (Japanese), Kaytha Coker (English)

He's always played tricks like this. If I scolded him, he'd act like he was really sorry, but he's just play a new trick the next day. I'd put him out without dinner, and tell the neighbors... to punish him if they catch him trying to get back in. But he used to sneak back into the kitchen... through the back of the clinic, without being seen. I knew all about it, of course. I realized what was happening when I'd let him in to apologize, there would be rice grains stuck to his face. And I'd notice that half of his rice was missing. It was kind of amazing how far he'd go, really. But that's my boy for you. That's... my son.

Akiyuki's mother. She has a strained relationship with her husband, Ryuuzou.

Isshu Benikawa

Voiced by Yumi Tamai (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)

You sit proudly in this cave, like a Queen of Egypt. In my service to you, I shall never know rest. To prove my devotion, I have stolen this ostentatious offering. But I'll show you things... your dark blue eyes haven't seen, smiles like a lake in the sun, blossoming like a lotus. Sitting upon your great throne, inscribed with a lion's head, skin bathed in ebony light. At times, I'll raise a lamp, and take my place at your warm feet. This pendant releases the light of Sirius, which your eyes will never behold. One who does not live for my sake, a child of this country, will bare this fire within, and herself, freeze...
