Utahime Iori ( (いおり) (うた) (ひめ) Iori Utahime?) is a character in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. She is a semi-grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer and student supervisor at Kyoto Jujutsu High.

Appearance[]

Utahime has long blackish-purple hair that extends down her back, with some strands tied behind her head, thin eyebrows, brown eyes and a scar on the right side of her face that crosses the bridge of her nose. She is slender and of average height.

Utahime wears a traditional miko outfit (consisting of a white kosode and red umanori-styled hakama pants), despite wearing modern brown colored boots.

On her day off, Utahime wears a dark purple baseball hat, white overalls over a black low-cut, long-sleeved shirt, and dark-colored shoes.

In 2006, Utahime wore her hair in two pigtails and had no scar on her face, but still wore the same miko clothes.

Personality[]

Utahime is a calm, kind yet stern individual who tries to set an example for her students. However, Satoru Gojo knows exactly how to push her buttons and angers her in almost every exchange they've had. When Satoru told her she couldn't be a traitor because she was too weak, Utahime threw her cup of tea at him. She often tells him to respect his elders because she's older than him but he never listens.

Abilities and Powers[]

Overall Skill Level: Utahime is a capable semi-grade 1 sorcerer who mainly acts as support for her allies. She easily dodged an attack from Haruta Shigemo and was also fast enough to run in front of Kasumi Miwa to protect her from Kenjaku's attack.

Jujutsu[]

Innate Technique
Solo Forbidden Area Solo Forbidden Area (単独 (ソロソロ) (キン) () Soro Soro Kinku?) is Utahime's innate technique. It temporarily amplifies the cursed energy of any willing sorcerer within range, including herself. The technique can be elevated into a ritual using incantations, hand signs, dance, and music. By including all of these steps, the technique's effectiveness can be raised to 120 percent.[3]
Barrier Techniques
NoPicAvailable Curtain ( (とばり) Tobari?): A type of barrier that is cast over a large area to hide everything within it from the outside world. Utahime, while investigating a cursed mansion in Hamamatsu City, attempts to cast a curtain though Mei Mei interrupts her.[4]

Trivia[]
