Utahime Iori 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.

They decide to test out the screen and find that Gojo is the only one that can’t enter, both Utahime and Yoshinobu head inside. Once inside, the two encounter Juzo Kumiya and Yoshinobu decides to take fight him alone while she goes to look for the students.
