Hinata Mukai was Izuru's caretaker in the OVA Wielder of the Red Knife.


Hinata, although never specified, was also affected by the Great Tokyo Earthquake, and because of what happened, she had dedicated her life to helping those who had lost their parents to the quake by opening up her home to them. She also forms a strong bond with Kiyomasa Senji as they appear to be very close, and talk with each other as friends.

She is first seen thanking Senji Kiyomasa who had just returned Izuru, who had just stolen from a gang called Goreless Peace. She is then seen enjoying her time with Senji. Senji compliments her on taking such good care of the children, but she rebukes that statement, simply stating that it is revenge against the quake and what it did. Hinata is last seen killed by the fire, that the Goreless Peace gang started in order to get Senji to join them.


Hinata is a slender woman, that has gray eyes who has short black hair, that covers all of her ears, as well as covering most of her forehead. She is only seen wearing a long hooded dark blue overcoat, with white stripes going from the left and right sides. She also wears yellow boots as well as light blue gloves.


Hinata was a very caring person who would help orphans on the streets with money out of her own pocket. She'll do anything to keep the kids safe and happy. She mentions she does out of vengeance towards the Great Tokyo Earthquake and what it had done. Although loving, she can also be a little strict or harsh at times, as she had smacked Izuru without warning for stealing again. Although never stated, it seemed that Hinata had some feelings for Senji.
