Teppei and his wife, Tamae Houjou, were forced to take care of Satoko and Satoshi Houjou after the death of the childrens' parents. The two are frequently abusive to the children. Though he has been married to Tamae for some time, Teppei spends a majority of his time with his lover in Okinomiya, Rina Mamiya. According to Kasai Tatsuyoshi, Teppei is an experienced con man working alongside Rina. The pair employ badger games to swindle money from married men.
