Tanjuro Kamado was the husband of Kie Kamado and the late father of Tanjiro, Nezuko, Takeo, Hanako, Shigeru, and Rokuta. Tanjuro was a frail man with black hair tipped with red, red eyes, and a pale skin complexion. His son Tanjiro has a striking resemblance to him in hair and eye color. He suffered from an illness that made him frail and caused his skin to appear dull. He was born with a mark on his forehead. Tanjuro also wore a similar outfit to his son, sporting a black checkered Haori that was orange instead of dark turquoise. He wore hanafuda earrings when he was alive; these were passed down from his ancestor, eventually leading Tanjiro to wear them upon his death. When performing the Kagura ritual dance, Tanjuro took the appearance of an Iwami Kagura dancer with a long sleeved dark brown dress with golden and crimson red frames with a large blindfold covering his entire face with the kanji for "flames" inscribed on it. He used a decorated wooden blade akin to a Shichishitō, which bore the appearance of a flaming sword, inspired by Yoriichi's Sun Breathing forms. Tanjuro was a quiet, calculating, forgiving, charismatic and loving person. He had a peaceful relationship with his family and regularly lectured Tanjiro about life. While he appeared calm on the outside, he showed a decent, noble aura with a quiet perception to his surroundings. According to his son, he did not like standing out or displaying his true abilities to others. However, if his family is in danger, he would not hesitate to protect them and shows no mercy towards the enemy.
