Inari is Koto's biological father and teacher, and also the father of Kurama, Yase, and Yakushimaru. He wears a fox mask and carries a katana. He is the original Myōe, but gives his title to his adopted son, Yakushimaru, when he leaves the Looking Glass City.
Inari appears younger than when he was Myōe. He has the same red eyes as both Kotos, but wears a Shrine-issued fox mask in public (and sometimes while at home) which conceals this feature.
