"The only thing we Have-Nots have to surpass the royals, to have a chance at crossing swords with high-ranking powerful Guardian Spirit Beasts, is our determination. Without the courage and sufficient preparation to perish close enough to touch the prince, while looking into the prince's eyes, how could our curse ever be successful?"
Fukataki is an old woman with dark eyes and wrinkles on her face. Her hair is pulled back in a bun, enclosed by a hairnet with a pin, at the back of her head. She wears a maid's uniform of black dress with a white apron.
Fukataki carries herself as a wise old woman who speaks from her lifelong experience. She is a repository of traditional and esoteric occult knowledge and is fond of expressing herself in maxims and adages. Like the other Have-Nots in Camilla's employ, she is extremely loyal to the prince, and was shown to smile in approval when Sarahell expressed her readiness to die for Camilla's benefit.
Succession Contest arc
After calling a meeting regarding Shikaku's suicide, Sarahell summons Fukataki, who reveals to be right behind her, and declares that she would like to send out a curse that very same day. She asks Fukataki about the length of time Mozbe's, Meshush's, and Taler's would require, who shares her estimates. Upon learning that Prince Kacho and Prince Fugetsu are in holding, Fukataki amends her guess. Sarahell thus decides to go with Taler, but Fukataki specifies that her estimates did not take the protection of the Guardian Spirit Beasts into account. She reckons that the only way for a curse to take effect would be to die while touching the target and looking them in the eye. Sarahell protests that she could have said so sooner, to which Fukataki replies that the young must be allowed to make their mistakes. When the Captain of the Guards decides to sacrifice herself, the Majordomo warns her to be careful, and smiles at Sarahell's unwavering resolve.
