Kohachi Inugami (隠神 (いぬがみ) 鼓八千 (こはち) , Inugami Kohachi?) is a kemono bakedanuki running a kemono detective agency in Tokyo. After meeting Kabane, he took him with him in order to help him find his parents.


Inugami is a fit and tall man who has a puffy yellow hair which reaches just below his shoulders to which the hair on the front flows on his right side of the face, which covers his right eye. He also has droopy eyes.

He wears a khaki-like colored suit vest over his deep green long sleeve shirt which are rolled on his arms, together with a pair green tie. He also wears a khaki-like colored pants and oxford shoes. He is also sometimes seen wearing a rimless tinted oval shaped glasses and a fedora hat.

In his tanuki form, his fur is a mix of brown and yellow.


Inugami is basically a calm person who doesn't like conflict and is kind enough to follow Kabane and the others casually. When he introduces Kabane as a new employee of the Inugami Detective Agency, Shiki and Akira don't seem to fully trust him, but he does not show any interest, saying, "Just get along with them".

However, he does not seem to be bad at taking care of them, as he advises Shiki and Akira to also "get along" when Kabane is not around, and calmly confronts Shiki, who has been playing a prank on Natsuha, saying, "You need to be punished for this".

He is good at taking care of the children, even helping them in their own various circumstances.

As the head of the detective agency, he is good at solving and making sure the job is done right.
