An essential part of a conversation between Gojo Satoru and Yuta Okkotsu revealed that the protagonist of the prequel movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, is related to the strongest sorcerers in the series. Towards the film’s end, Yuta regains consciousness after the fight against Geto Suguru. While his classmates were making sure he was okay, Gojo Satoru sauntered in and said that he found the theory Yuta came up with interesting. He then exclaimed that Yuta Okkotsu was a descendant of Sugawara Michizane, making Yuta and Gojo distant relatives.

Gojo’s statement confirmed that Gojo Satoru and Yuta Okkotsu are related. Maki Zen’in, Panda, and Toga Inumaki expressed their shock since Sugawara Michizane is one of three great apparitions in Japan. This could be one of the reasons why Yuta Okkotsu is so strong. However, it seems like Yuta Okkotsu is not the only relative of Gojo Satoru, as indicated by a recent X post.

Uraume Is Gojo Satoru’s Ancestor In Jujutsu Kaisen

An X user, @Incr3dibl3Sauce, suggests that Uraume is Gojo Satoru’s ancestor and likely a clan member of Sugawara Michizane. The white hair may or may not be a hint as well, however, Uraume’s name is the biggest giveaway. Uraume’s name translates to ‘plum in the shadows’. And if the name’s split up, “Ura” translates to working in the shadows or behind the scenes. Meanwhile, “Ume” translates to plum, and Sugawara Michizane was obsessed with plums.

His obsession extended as far as writing a goodbye poem for his plum tree when he was exiled. Uraume’s stripe on her hair is also the same color as a plum blossom. The X user concludes that if she was Sugawara Michizane’s “plum tree”, the first conclusion would be that she was his lover, the second that she was his relative, perhaps his niece, or third, a student. If this theory is true, this would make Uraume a distant relative of Gojo Satoru.

Who Is Uraume?

Uraume is a powerful curse user who has been loyal to Ryomen Sukuna for over 1000 years, awaiting his return and demonstrating unwavering loyalty to him. Uraume is as bewitching as she is perilous, having roamed the land for over a thousand years, accumulating arcane secrets. Though little is known about Uraume’s history and intentions, her mind-boggling powers and unwavering loyalty towards Ryomen Sukuna label her as a threat beyond imagination.

Uraume is definitely one of the most experienced jujutsu sorcerers introduced in the series, having mastered the use of cursed energy to an exceptional level. Some of the known cursed techniques used by Uraume include her innate technique called Ice Formation, which allows her to manipulate ice at her whim. She utilizes another technique called Frost Calm, allowing her to release a cloud of freezing mist that can immobilize groups of opponents instantly. She can also summon sharpened ice shards called Icefall that impale opponents on contact.

As the details of Kenjaku’s plans unfold, Uraume’s role suggests that she will remain a strong and loyal ally to Kenjaku as he maneuvers to achieve his ultimate goals. While her past is not clearly revealed yet, Uraume distinguishes herself as an iconic villain shrouded in an air of mystery.

Jujutsu Kaisen is available to stream on Crunchyroll and Prime Video.
