The matriarch of the House of Daimonji, she is a very stern woman when it comes to manner and proper etiquette. She is mocking of Ranma, but in the end says that she likes her due to her spirit in the duel. She almost never leaves her formal sitting position, but despite this can move very quickly, even jumping and clinging to ceilings.
In the anime she makes another appearance when it appeared Ranma was to be a sacrifice for some sort of ritual, but it turned out she was just leaving the tea-serving position for the first time in years and needs someone to massage her legs after doing it. She is voiced in the Japanese version by Hisako Kyōda and in the English dub she is voiced by Pauline Newstone in the T.V series and by Patti Allen in the second OVA.
