Yofune Nushi would wish you to think he’s just a quiet blind sage, tending his garden out in the forest all alone. But quiet little old men are never just that, are they? Yofune is quite capable of taking care of himself, and making anyone who threatens him very, very sorry (although most don’t live long enough to be all that sorry).
Shrouded in mystery, Yofune is hard to predict, yet his intentions, for the most part, are good and helpful. With Tanuki as his companion and eyes (although Yofune’s other senses are heightened due to his loss of vision), Yofune is able to guide David through the confusing folds of the Curtain, and turns out to be a more valuable—and fierce—ally than David could ever have imagined.
