Yoné

Japanese - A servant of Tsuyu. She died of grief when her mistress died of unrequited love for the samurai, Shinzaburo. At the Festival of the Dead, they both visited Shinzaburo and came to his house every night. When finally Shinzaburo was advised by the priest, Ryoseki, that he was entertaining ghosts of the dead and could himself lose his life, he locked the doors against them and used the talismans given to him by Ryoseki to keep the dead at bay. Yoné bribed Tomozo, Shinzaburo's servant, to let them in and the affair was resumed. Next day, Shinzaburo was found dead beside the bones of Tsuyu. Also commonly identified as Yoné.
