"I am furniture."

Kanon (嘉音?), also known as Yoshiya (嘉哉?), is a servant working under the Ushiromiya family on Rokkenjima. He is extremely quiet and reserved and strongly feels he is inferior to humans. He has feelings for Jessica Ushiromiya but is unwilling to act on them due to his position as a servant and his belief that furniture are unworthy of love.



Kinzo Ushiromiya, after the death of his lover, Beatrice Castiglioni, became infatuated with his daughter, Beatrice Ushiromiya. Beatrice Ushiromiya strongly resembled her mother and Kinzo, in a state of madness, believed her to be the reincarnation of his dead lover. He forced himself on her and impregnated her. Beatrice Ushiromiya gave birth to Sayo Yasuda. In order to hide Kinzo's sin from the world, Genji Ronoue offered the child to Natsuhi Ushiromiya, who had been having trouble conceiving a child of her own. Natsuhi, distressed and angry at the offer, pushed the servant carrying the child, resulting in both the servant and the infant Sayo falling off of a cliff. The servant died upon impact with the rocky bottom, however Sayo miraculously survived. Unfortunately, Sayo sustained heavy injury to the abdominal and genital regions, resulting in severe mutilation.

After the incident, Sayo adopts the name Kanon as an alias for one of her split personalities.

Kanon is skilled in hand-to-hand combat and was capable of battling and defeating Lucifer in Banquet of the Golden Witch.





  • Kanon's birthday is October 6 in that Sayo created the character of Kanon on October 6.
  • Like the other servants from the Fukuin House, Kanon has the character "音" in his name.
