Kagaya stated: “This caused the family bloodline to be cursed. Every child born in our family is weak and dies very soon. But the pastor gave us some advice when our family was about to be wiped out of existence. Demons come from our bloodline.”

Kagaya continued: “So you must dedicate your souls to defeating him. And if you do, your family will not die. We have received wives from pastors for generations. And now our children are tougher to die. Even so, none of our family lived beyond thirty years.”

It is revealed that the Ubuyashiki family has been leading the battle against Muzan Kibutsuji for nearly 1000 years.
