Mushin was the man who raised Miroku as Miroku's own father had died due to the curse of the 'Kazaana' place upon his father by Naraku. Mushin is a very lecherous monk so there is no doubt that Miroku picked up his bad habits over the years. Mushin is also very fond of his 'Saki' and is often drunk when Miroku comes by to visit. Mushin has the habit of predicting Miroku's death every time he comes to visit which is of great annoyance to Miroku. However, Miroku still has much affection for Mushin.
