She don't hesitate to leave her rodents to eat someone alive. Ubume also seems to care about her rodents.


Genza was first seen, when he came to say to Shigure that they are ready for practice. She wondered what's outside of the village, since she have never been out, but Genza told her he don't know either. After the practice, he was walking with Shigure and 2 more men, when they heard the intruders alarm. When Genza saw Jubei, his expression became serious. Jubei asked for water, and Genza agreed.

When Gouten attacked the village, Genza said that this was their fate and took off their clothes, along with the rest of the villagers, revealing that they are actually ninjas and attacked Gouten, but with no effect. Genza was later seen dying, barely saying the name of Shigure, before he took his last breath.
