Ritsu's mother, Mesho-san, also known as "Okami-san", as she is most often referred to as ('okami' being the Japanese term for the hostess at an onsen), or more rarely, the "Ghost Lady", is introduced, as well as appearing before Ritsu, when Tohru, Momiji, Yuki, and Kyo take a trip to the Sohma Onsen for Momiji's White Day Present for Tohru. As Momiji introduces her to Tohru, Mesho-san at first she seems to be a fragile middle-aged woman who at times seems frightening and ghost-like as she wails and moans rather than compared to her son who usually cries when apologizing, though the simularities between both are very well recognizable.
Mesho-san accompanies Tohru in the spring and converses with her about her son, Ritsu, who she admits to her that Ritsu is the monkey of the zodiac. Although, she didn't mention Tohru whether Ritsu is a boy or a girl. During this time she also apologises to Tohru for she confesses that when she had first heard of someone outside of the Sohma family knowing of the curse, she became worried, but now knowing Tohru and that it is she who is the one who knows, she is "relieved".
Also worth noting is that in the manga there is a small part of the bath scene which was never adapted into the anime which slightly reveals Mesho-san's true feelings about Ritsu. When first hearing about Mesho-san's son, Tohru can not help but ask what he is like, and Mesho-san, though screaming with apologies, replies heartfully "...from the world's point of view he's like that but he's very precious to me deep down. He's very kind. He's my only child..
