She usually wore a blue michiyuki worn over a lavender kimono. She was learned to be a maker of 'Spiders Web' opium. She is also seen to be having some kind of special relationship with Sanosuke.
Sometimes, Megumi appears to have fox ears popping out of her head, an allusion to her nickname kitsune, which means "fox". Sanosuke especially likes to call her kitsune-onna meaning Fox Lady, though Yahiko and Kaoru sometimes call her this as well. Throughout the series Megumi is compared to a fox.
Like Kaoru, Megumi is a strong-willed woman, but she is also depicted as a more mature and cunning compared to the younger Kaoru.
