Nanka was the owner of a small but profitable brothel in a Senjokuni town that employed Gijou and later Kogeru as bodyguards. She refused repeated attempts by a local yakuza leader, Ontai, to sell her business. As a result, the yakuza gang attempted a hostile tackeover one night. Nanka and her guards fought back, resulting the yakuza -- and, unfortunately, Gijou's -- deaths. Nanka survived the ordeal, but her brothel was burned to the ground. When Kogeru and Mushin last left her, she was attempting to rebuild it.

A fair but somewhat odd woman, Nanka treats her employees well, aside from her somewhat perverse sense of humor. She seems not to take things too seriously unless need be, and is a much more capable fighter than a casual observing would make one think.
