  • Sayuri is an elderly woman who carries a large tobacco pipe that resembles a cane, and wears an arm band says “Lifelong Service.” She’s believed to be the leader of the faction.
  • Renka is the oldest of the three sisters and wears a Chinese-esque outfit. As for combat, she wields a pair of sticks called “Raitei” as her weapon of choice.
  • Kafuru is the youngest of the sisters and fights with a watergun. She’s also usually the target of Hanabi’s breast jokes due to her underdevelopment.
