The bourei of a human from ancient times. Carries a grudge against humans, its nature is that of the so-called vengeful spirit. Although she serves Toyosatomimo no Miko as a vassal along with Mononobe no Futo, unlike Futo she didn't become a shikaisen along with Miko, instead remaining as a bourei. As for why, she seems to have been set up by Futo.
 元々、布都と屠自古は仏教を巡る争いで敵同士だった。その争いは、結果的に屠自古の方に軍配が上がったのだが、布都の呼びかけたより陰で協力するようになる。その内容は「今の所は仏教に支配させて良いが、神子が後の権力者として復活した時に、二人で参謀として復活しよう」という物だった。 To begin with, Futo and Tojiko were mutual enemies from the struggle over Buddhism. Although in the end Tojiko's side won, it seems she responded to Futo's appeal to work together in secret. The details of the plan were along the lines of "We'll let Buddhism rule for now, but after Miko revives and becomes a powerful leader we can both revive as her chiefs of staff."
 彼女が苟且の体に使った物体(*1)は壺だった。その物体は長期に亘り朽ち果てない物が望ましかったのだが、布都は焼かれていない壺とすり替えたのだ。  屠自古の魂が宿った後、壺はあっさりと溶け崩れてしまった。それにより彼女は肉体を持てず、亡霊となってしまったのだ。 The temporary body that she's using is a jar(*1). She wanted to move to a new body that would never decay, but Futo switched it with an unbaked jar. If Tojiko attached her soul to it, it would easily melt away. To prevent that, she gave up on having a physical body and remained a bourei.
 何故布都はそんな行動を取ったのかというと、やはり過去の争いで一族を滅亡させられた怨みを持っていたのだろう。亡霊になってすぐに騙された事に気が付いた様だが、実は肉体を持たない事が非常に快適であるという事にも気付き、今は亡霊である事を甘受している様である。 As for why Futo did such a thing, it's surely because of a grudge from the conflict between their two families that led to the downfall of the Mononobe. Although she realized the deception immediately after becoming a bourei, it turned out that not having a physical body was surprisingly pleasant so she doesn't seem to mind too much.
 性格はガラが悪く、情に脆い。(cont'd on next page) Her personality is unsuitably tender-hearted.
