personality

Daki was a very exultant, dismissive, and sadistic person, taking enjoyment in toying with her victims before killing them and not showing the slightest bit of guilt or compunction for apathetically taking the lives of people. [ 13 ] [ 14 ] Daki besides seemed to think identical highly of herself, dismissing all non- Hashira Demon Slayers as not worth her time, [ 15 ] and getting incensed when Tanjiro Kamado spoke to her, presumably because she looked down on him. [ 16 ] This is besides shown when Daki said that she might spare Tanjiro if he told her how many Demon Slayers are present in the Entertainment District, and when Daki openly expresses how dull the Demon Slayer ‘s techniques are and her boredom, [ 17 ] further exampling her arrogant and dismissive personality .
As a concubine, she seemed to have a seductive slope as seen during her typical interactions with her male clienteles. Despite being hundreds of years erstwhile, she had displayed childish and bratty tendencies such as throwing tantrums, crying hysterically when things did n’t go her way, and lashing out against anyone to vent her frustrations. Daki was openly aggressive and both verbally and physically abusive towards anybody that displeased her in any form. Daki had a certain phone number of habits that were well recorded in history, in particular her consumption of the word “ Hime ” at the end of any of the identities she assumed. [ 18 ] She besides had a habit of angling her promontory to the sides and glaring at others while sitting when criticized. As an oiran, Daki was extremely barbarous and wicked, pulling on a young daughter ‘s auricle because she did n’t clean up her room and punching Zenitsu Agatsuma into the other room for merely touching her. She besides preferred to only eat people that she viewed as beautiful or solid, choosing to kill those who got on her nerves without eating them and leaving their bodies behind, which people frequently mistook as suicide. Daki displayed a spoil and bratty demeanor that bordered on sociopath-like character, harassing many of her fellow workers to the point of suicide, strictly because they annoyed or retorted her, all the while showing no traces of guilt and in fact deflect the blame on her victims for offending her. She was then exultant that she had no obedience for anybody, not even her family owners, rubbing on their faces that she was their central source of income as both a way to display her status and halt their objections towards her. She was sol drink on her standing and infamously crimson tendencies that some family masters had to resort to bowing their heads in order to calm her angry outbursts, to which she responded by putting up a corrected, more polite and affable stance. Nonetheless for all her faults, she was an exceptionally skilled courtesan whose many identities had always earned great fame and significant earnings .
Daki has shown to have extremely childish and aggressive tendencies, potentially due to her young long time anterior to being transformed into a monster. This was shown when she threw a fit and cried when she got beheaded by Tengen Uzui, showing her childish temperament and whining endlessly while spewing threats at the Hashira. As seen during her fight against Nezuko, Daki besides suffered from a certain degree of Pyrophobia. Due to her having been burned alive at the senesce of 13 in her homo life, Daki has shown to have a deeply psychological reverence of flames. Having been shown to scream hysterically after she was set on fire by Nezuko ‘s Blood Demon Art due to the experience having brought back that atrocious injury to her. [ 19 ] In bare contrast to her autocratic, hostile, dominate and violent exterior, Daki was fanatically patriotic to Muzan, bowing her head immediately and speaking in a well meek voice shade while being both visibly terrified and mesmerized by his presence. This was well known to him to the point he actively honey-laced his words towards her in order to easily motivate and direct her actions, despite the fact he thought ill of her abilities in comparison to her buddy. She seems to have a reasonably caring kinship with her buddy, Gyutaro, though she had been seen insulting and ridiculing him when they both fail, showing that despite her love for her buddy, she is n’t above ranting and lashing out at him, as shown when she spoke cruelly of him upon their kill, even insulting his appearance and viciously claiming that he could n’t possibly be her brother .
however, underneath her botch attitude towards her brother, Daki is shown to possess a strong actual love for him, as seen during her prison term in Limbo, where despite Gyutaro attempting to sever ties with her and try to send her to heaven, Ume stubbornly refuses to abandon her brother, even if it meant going to hell together with him. Having tearfully reminded him that no matter what happened to them, they were at their strongest in concert and promised that no matter how many times she died and was reborn, she would always be his little sister. It was noted by Gyutaro that as a human she possessed an easily influenced, impressionable and honest personality, causing her to easily take up the personality traits and words of those she trusts and admired to affection, as evidenced by Muzan ‘s handling. Her buddy Gyutaro himself believes that the lone reason why she is like she is now was due to her being raised by him to be selfish and to only worry and care about herself due to taking to heart his words of “ take before you ‘re taken from ”, resulting in her stream personality. He besides added that had she been raised in a convention family and was taught proper morals and teachings, she would ‘ve become the diametric antonym of her current self .

She briefly display this when she shifted her hair coloring material from white to black, [ 10 ] and even turning it into a weapon as she attempted to attack Inosuke by wrapping her hair around his arms after he successfully decapitated her and took her head from her body to prevent her from reattaching it .

[ 17 ] Like all Upper Rank demons, Daki could move so fast that she appeared to teleport. [ 30 ] [ 31 ] After she became solid with her break up Obi sashes, Daki ‘s speed increased drastically, such that it was incomparable from before. [ 20 ] Her accelerate increases even more after Gyutaro awakens, allowing her to keep up with Zenitsu ‘s Thunderclap and Flash technique and successfully react to Tengen ‘s explosives .

[ 34 ] Daki could besides lift up an aged womanhood without any disturb. [ 35 ] Keen Intellect: Daki possessed above average levels of reason. She was able to lure and trap courtesans for over a century without being caught, and was able to effectively blend in with all the other inhabitants in Yoshiwara without being noticed by Tengen, who possesses extremely abrupt senses. As an Oiran, Daki would besides have had received a lot of department of education to climb to her side. Furthermore, Daki was able to tell that Zenitsu was a non- Hashira degree Demon Slayer after hitting him once. [ 36 ] Restricted Flight: Daki briefly displayed the ability to levitate in the vent though unknown means, [ 37 ] though it is entail that her sashes have a part to play in it. Shared Biology: Gyutaro and Daki possessed a preferably abnormal trait not seen in most demons. Despite the fact the siblings are two different people, the two have basically a one body. This can be seen with how Gyutaro normally remains concealed within Daki without altering her physical mass in the little. even though Gyutaro was inactive for the majority of the clock time, he was still more potent than his baby who was an active marauder. This implies that humans consumed by Daki besides serve as nutrition for Gyutaro, allowing the two to grow stronger at the like time. Gyutaro besides had master over his sister, being capable of not only reattaching her head for her, but besides healing her burned weave for her when she was under emotional distress .

  • Decapitation Immunity: Daki had a unique immunity to decapitation by Nichirin Swords thanks to her connection with Gyutaro, whether it be when he is “sleeping” inside of her or when his “core” is implanted inside of her body. This is showcased when, despite being repeatedly decapitated by Tengen and Inosuke, Daki’s body showed absolutely no signs of disintegration.[38] As the Demon Slayers quickly realize, the only way to bypass this immunity is if Gyutaro himself is simultaneously decapitated alongside her.[39]

Skilled Courtesan: Daki had alone skills as a concubine, with her many identities being well known through the Entertainment District ‘s history which brought big fortunes to houses that hosted her. [ 40 ] She in turn used her elevated condition to get away with many of her abusive practices. Unlimited Stamina & Endurance: Like all demons, Daki had infinite stamen and survival.

[ 44 ] Daki much created these sashes from her back and retracts them back into her body when not in function. She has besides displayed the ability to exert control over her Obi from extremely far distances. Her sashes are noted to be delicate like silk so far as acute, if not sharper than most Nichirin Swords. In battle, Daki used her obeah sashes as herculean and fast tendril-like whips to unleash long-ranged weave attacks while besides being able to use it to form a carapace around her body if motivation be, making her Blood Demon Art an extremely effective blend of discourtesy and defensive structure. Her sashes were indeed potent that they could repel and block attacks from Tengen ‘s explosives [ 45 ] and slice up buildings with ease. [ 46 ] Furthermore, they are specially difficult to cut because of their voiced properties, and can foster loosen the effectiveness of cut attacks by bending and weaving. [ 47 ] [ 48 ] Her sashes had a unique property that allows her to store objects, normally humans she wanted to eat, inside her sashes. She traps them inside the sashes by transforming the objects she wishes to store into 2 dimensional flat versions of said object.

This is seen where after the sashes returned to her and was reabsorbed into her body, Daki’s power was stated to have drastically increased as she physically transformed. This was noted by Tanjiro upon noticing that her scent became much stronger and more ominous after her sashes had been absorbed back into her body.
