|“||Gods… and Buddha… Please… at least spare my little brother. He’s not like me. His heart is kind. He wants… to help people but I stopped him. I’m the one who’s bad. If you must punish someone… punish me… please. The truth is I knew. The “Mu” in “Muichiro” is the “Mu” in “Mugen”. Infinity. For the good of others… you… can tap into infinite strength.||”|
|— Yuichiro Tokito to Muichiro Tokito in The Mu of Muichiro|
Yuichiro Tokito ( 時 ( とき ) 透 ( とう ) 有 ( ゆう ) 一 ( いち ) 郎 ( ろう ), Tokitō Yūichirō ? ) was the older twin brother of the Demon Slayer and Mist Hashira ( 霞 ( かすみ ) 柱 ( ばしら ), Kasumi Bashira ? ), Muichiro Tokito. [ 1 ]
Yuichiro was a short young male child with long, straight hair of a dark black color that fades to pale turquoise the close to his waist it goes. He wore it easy with two clumps protruding slightly from each side of his head, a set of marginally shorter hair left down to frame his face, and boisterous bangs over his brow. He besides possessed large, mint-green eyes, a trait, like his hair, that he shared with his gemini brother, Muichiro Tokito. He wore a dark, bootless yukata with a white mist design, like to the lighter one his brother wore when they were both 10 .
Yuichiro was a cold and doubting individual who did n’t believe in compassion or caring for others. He believed that doing good deeds would n’t do a person a shred of good, which is seen when he claimed his beget was a jester for dying while trying to gather herb to help cure his mother ‘s fateful illness, and shot down Muichiro ‘s suggestion that they become monster Slayers in orderliness to save people ‘s lives. This behavior likely originated from the pain and grief of losing both of his parents in one fell swoop, however, since fair before he passed away from a Demon attack, Yuichiro was seen praying that his brother be saved and apologizing for getting in his direction when he wanted to be useful, suggesting that deep down he was actually a kind and caring person. [ 2 ] late, upon Muichiro ‘s own death and their reunion in the afterlife, Yuichiro is shown angrily and tearfully telling his brother to return back to the land of the living, lashing out at him for putting his life in danger and as a consequence dying at such a young long time. He showed Muichiro that his harsh, numb and sometimes barbarous personality was due to him trying to protect and look after his unseasoned brother in his own way since he sincerely loved him .
Yuichiro and his younger gemini brother, Muichiro, were born to a woodcutter and his wife. When they were 10, their beget caught a cold which developed into bronchitis and killed her. Their father, away at the time, went to fetch medicative herb during a storm and ended up falling off a cliff to his death. The two siblings survived together, while Muichiro took after the affectional and kind nature of their church father, Yuichiro alternatively held a cold and deadpan lookout on life sentence.
In the postdate spring, Kagaya Ubuyashiki ‘s wife, Amane Ubuyashiki, arrived to recruit them for the Demon Slayer Corps. Muichiro ‘s excitation was opposed by Yuichiro ‘s unwelcoming and rejecting reception. In an outburst, Yuichiro revealed that he blamed the death of their parents on their hardworking and altruistic nature and adopted a cold lookout, hoping to keep himself and his buddy alive. While Amane continued to visit the twins, Yuichiro chased her away each time. In the trace summer, a Demon arrived at their cabin during the night and attacked, and as a consequence Yuichiro lost his left arm while trying to protect Muichiro. As the Demon badgered them for their worthlessness, Muichiro lost himself in a fury and destroyed the monster with all the tools at their administration and wooden logs. By sunrise, the Demon withered into ash and Muichiro dragged himself back to the house. There, he found Yuichiro near death pray to the heavens that his buddy might survive. Yuichiro then told Muichiro that the ‘Mu ‘ in his name means eternity, and told him to live on. He then laid there grasping his brother ‘s hand as he died. [ 3 ]
- (To Muichiro Tokito) “What could you do?! You can’t even boil rice by yourself! But you’re gonna be a swordsman and help people?! Quit talking nonsense! You really are exactly like father and mother! You’re a dreamer! What’s wrong with your head?! Like mother, who didn’t say she was sick and kept on working until it ruined her health! And father who went out to gather herbs in a storm despite how much I tried to stop him! Despite all the times I told mother to rest! Helping people is something only certain people can do! We’re just kids! Even if our ancestors were swordsmen, what can we do?“
- (To Muichiro Tokito about their parents) “You can’t trust the word of a man who died trying to do something for someone else. In mother’s condition, herbs weren’t going to cure her. It was completely foolish. If he hadn’t gone out in that storm, only mother would have died. I’m just telling the truth. The “Mu” in “Muichiro” is “Moo”… like a big dumb cow. And this conversation is pointless. Nothing can change the past.“
