Nadeshiko is an Inukami from the same area as Y�ko, who has contracted with Keita's cousin, Kaoru. In sharp contrast to all other Inukami on the show, she initially appears to be pacifistic and to regret the vanquishing of spirits and monsters. She constantly wears maid attire, and it is worth noting that Nadeshiko sees Keita's positive qualities from the start and may once have considered contracting with him. She and Kaoru seem to share a special bond that causes some jealousy from her pack-mates at times. Nadeshiko's senses are apparently keener than those of the other Inukami and Y�ko has said that Nadeshiko has an ability the rest of her pack lacks.
