She was the adoptive mother of Kaguya, before being possessed by the Horror Yamanba.


Early History

As their adoptive daughter Kaguya grew up to be a beautiful lady, many aristocrats wanted her hand for marriage, so they each brought rare and expensive treasures in an attempt surpass each other's gifts. However, the greed from obtaining these treasures corrupted both her husband and her, turning them into Horrors.

Shortly after her husband attacked one of Kaguya's suitors as Kamaitachi, the two appeared as humans to feign innocence and thanked Raikou for rescuing their daughter. When the fifth suitor snapped and attempted to commit murder-suicide with Kaguya, Kintoki stopped him and used his rods to reveal the Horror, but to his surprise it was both Miyatsukomaro and his wife. In the end, she and her husband were slain by Raikou after donning the Garo armor, but their severed bodies combined together and formed the Horror Yamaoroshi.
