After the earthquake she was discovered carrying a baby who she considers as her daughter and after six years she took the child to Tokyo. She returns to Tokyo as a single mother and has no job or source of income to take care of her daughter Rihoko. The child support department tries to take Rihoko from her because they believe she is not capable to take care of her, but she resists them. However, at the end of the series it is revealed that Masane is not Rihoko's biological mother.

After Masane returns to Tokyo she discovers a strange structure on her wrist which she later finds out to be the witchblade.

Rihoko is Masane's daughter. She is also known by her friends as Riko. She acts very mature and takes good care of her mother Masane who is not very responsible as an adult. Riko does all the house chores such as cooking, cleaning and washing. She later finds out that her real mother is Reina and her father is Takayama.
