Tsunami (ツナミ, Tsunami) is a citizen of the Land of Waves.
Her husband died shortly after Inari's birth, and when Kaiza entered her life as a father figure for Inari, she couldn't help but invite him into her home. Like everyone else in the city, Kaiza's death broke her spirit. In the following years, she tried to protect Inari from the painful memories of the loss of his stepfather.
She has been described as obliging. She also loves "prettiness". Tsunami also seems to be a very loving mother.
