The Lady of the Infant's castle (奥方, おくがた, Okugata, "Lady") was a beautiful young noblewoman whose child was stillborn. At that moment, Kanna was able to manipulate her into believing her child had survived in the form of the Infant.


The lady was giving birth to her future heir. When the birthing was over, she was anxious to see her child. Her servants sadly pronounced the baby as a stillborn. At that moment, everyone in the birthing room began to collapse and die except her. As the lady began to panic, she was approached by Kohaku and Kanna with the Infant. The plan was to have her raise the child while believing it was the same one she gave birth to. This was done as a means to protect the Infant from being destroyed. Her memory of the event began to disappear soon after.

While she was raising the child, she came across Kohaku while he wondered the palace grounds (his memories were erased as well). As soon as she saw him, she had a brief flashback of when she was approached by him with the Infant, but it quickly passed. She acted as if nothing unusual happened.

Princess Abi later attacked the lady's estate and her minions began to slaughter the inhabitants. It was during the attack that her husband, the lord of the castle, was killed by one of the birds. Kohaku saved the lady and her ladies-in-waiting before Abi's birds could kill them. Unfortunately, Naraku took control of Kohaku, and ordered him to kill everyone in order to retrieve the Infant. As Kohaku killed her servants, the lady asked him why he was killing everyone. She could soon see that he was saddened by his actions, and asked him who was controlling his heart. It was at that moment that Sango arrived and confronted Kohaku. The lady was then able to escape from Kohaku only to be stopped moments later by Kanna. She used her mirror to take the women's soul, killing her.

Manga vs. AnimeEdit

  • In the manga, the lady does not notice Kohaku's tears as he is about to kill her and does not ask who is forcing him to do it.
