Mamushi Hojo (宝生 蝮 Hōjō Mamushi) is the eldest daughter of Uwabami Hojo and sister of Nishiki and Ao. She was an Intermediate First-Class Exorcist at the Kyoto Branch of the True Cross Order until she was removed from her position after the incident of the Impure King.


Mamushi has light long hair in a distinctive style having a hime-cut with an extra-long bang in the middle of her head. Her eyes resemble the sharp stare of a snake. She has a tattoo going up the right side of her face. She has only been seen with traditional Japanese clothing. She currently wears an eyepatch due to losing her eye during the Impure King incident. In the OVA she briefly changed into the school uniform, which consists of black Mary Jane shoes, a short, pink skirt with a black belt, black tights, and a white colored shirt. She also wears the female version of the school tie, which is tied with a large bow.


Mamushi was seen to be rather calmed and serious. Almost a tsundere like Izumo Kamiki, she obeys her peers. She is a very diligent person and has a strong sense of self-justice. Her loyalty to Myōō Dharani is so great that to protect it from "traitors" like Mephisto Pheles and Tatsuma Suguro, she stole the Right Eye of the Impure King to put it in a safer place. Mamushi also seems to have a strong resolve, seen by her bearing the "right eye of the Impure King despite the strain. She gets easily swayed by the words of notorious people like Saburota Todo.

Her husband notes there's a softer and kind side to her personality.


Mamushi is Juzo Shima's childhood friend and they attended the Cram School together. Saburota Todo was one of her teachers.


Kyoto Impure King arc[]

Mamushi first appears with her sisters, Nishiki and Ao, while in the middle of an argument with Juzo and Kinzo Shima. They are arguing over who's at fault for the infiltration of the shinbu. After multiple insults from both sides, Juzo swings his K'rik at Mamushi, and she retaliates by summoning Naga. Ryuji, Renzo and Konekomaru then interrupt the fight, with Ryuji scolding them. Her father criticized afterwards her and Juzo's behavior because they were high-ranking personnel.

On the next day, Mamushi attended for a meeting with her father and sisters. The purpose of the meeting was to unmask the traitor in the incident of the Right Eye. Mamushi got angry when she was suspected. She told that she was only going to protect the Eye and it looked like Tatsuma was manipulating the flames.

After the meeting, she asked from her sisters, does they believe her. They both assured their older sister that they believed in her.

After the Impure King is defeated, Juzo arranges a marriage offer with Uwabami to be with Mamushi.
