Ayame Shoukiin (青鬼院菖蒲 Shōkiin Ayame) is Kagerou Shoukiin's mother.
She is Kagerou's mother. They are never seen entirely together in the manga or anime, though it could be said that Ayame has spoiled and provided generously for Kagerou.
Ayame was the one that picked Miketsukami up during a party his mistress was attending. Being the shameless individual that he was (and still is), he tried to seduce her by kissing her. Fortunately, she escaped from his grasp before he could go any further and immediately reprimanded him by understandingly calling him a precocious brat. After hearing his longing for freedom, Ayame took him in as a caretaker to Kagerou, and promised him that he will be released when he is 20.
