Nezuko's appearance when she was human.


Nezuko's original personality as a human was of a kind and caring girl, who thought of others before herself much like her older brother Tanjirou.

As a demon, Nezuko seems to have forgotten a good portion of her memories as a human aside of those related to her family. She is still very caring and protective towards other humans who she sees as members of her family due to Urokodaki's influence while she was asleep for two years.
