柾木 船穂 樹雷
Funaho is Azusa Masaki Jurais first wife and the mother of Yosho. She also serves as Jurais Minister of Intelligence and sees right through Yoshos quotKatsuhitoquot disguise. She is a distant descendant of Masaki the sister of the first ruler of Jurai but considers herself to be human since she was born on Earth. Her main reason for coming to Earth in OVA Episode 13 is that other than to see Yosho and to check up on Ayeka and Sasami was to ask Washu if she would assist Jurai by mass producing Ryoko and RyoOhki for their defenses. However Washu already knew about this reason and refused because to Washu not only would she not betray Tenchis trust by accepting the offer she also felt there should only be one Ryoko and Ryoohki. Washu then assured a worried Funaho that she wont mass produce Ryoko or Ryoohki for any of Jurais enemies because she has no interest in helping anyone. Washu does eventually create a quotsisterquot of Ryoohki named Fuku. source: Wikipedia
