Nue Houjuu is said to be one of the most mysterious and feared youkai in many years yet has been defeated by Humans many times. There are many legends according to her appearance when, in fact, she is hiding her "true form." She was just enjoying scaring humans until she got sealed underground, so she spent most her time underground until an incident where she went above ground to check what happened. She found out that Murasa Minamitsu and the other youkai who were also sealed underground made it above ground and were planning something. She decided to have some "fun" by putting the Seed of Non-identification in the fragments of Tobikura. However, she is now currently living with Byakuren in her Temple.
