Akeno Tsugikun was the mother of Michikatsu and Yoriichi Tsugikuni. She also was the creator of the hanafuda earrings that Tanjiro Kamado currently wears. Akeno is a beautiful young woman with a petite build and fair skin. She has black waist-length hair tied parted apart on top of her forehead with a bow at the bottom of her back along with two bangs that reach her eyes. Akeno wore a kimono with a white obi strap. Over this, she wore an incredibly long pale-yellowish haori with multiple thin overlapping white crescent moons with polka-dots above them, reaching past her bare feet being dragged along the floor. Akeno was described as a very religious and pure-hearted woman, always praying to the god of the sun for little to no disaster in the world along with her constantly worrying for Yoriichi and Michikatsu. Despite her protective constitution, she doesn't complain to being helped as seen when Yoriichi as child would always support and carry her impaired side due to her terminal sickness.
