Hitomiko's master (瞳子の先生) was a priest and Hitomiko's predecessor who was killed by Naraku.


When Hitomiko was a child fifteen years ago, she was confronted by Naraku. He tried to kill her with his miasma. It killed all of her friends, but she survived by putting up a barrier with her spiritual powers. Her master came rushing towards her. He told Hitomiko to run home and explained that person who was trying to kill her was a yōkai. He used his spiritual powers to attack Naraku, but it had no effect on him. Naraku then pushed him back with his demonic power. Hitomiko rushed towards him to see if he was alright. She got angry at Naraku and drove him away with her power. Her master exclaimed that he escaped. Hitomiko pleaded with him that he would be alright, but he was too inured to pull through. As he lay dying, he told Hitomiko that a great burden had been placed upon her due to her incredible spiritual powers that rivaled those of Kikyō. He gave Hitomiko his sacred bells and asked that she would promise to continue with her training since many yōkai would come after her. With his final breath, he stated that while she did not choose this fight, it was now hers. Hitomiko expressed great sorrow when he died.
