Ayumi Shibata is a woman who shares features similar to her daughter, Tsugumi Shibata. She has brown eyes and dark hair, only seen down, and is thought to be beautiful.
Ayumi Shibata died in a car accident when her daughter, Tsugumi, was just a baby. She left her husband, Hajime, a widower, although they were separated at the time of her death. The tragedy of her death was that she was the most important thing in both her husband and daughter's lives. Hajime, devoted to giving his wife and daughter the life they deserve, over-committed himself to his work, neglecting his family. After countless nights alone, Ayumi starts an extra-marital affair with a politician, a fact which is quickly exposed by her journalist husband. Hajime leaves Ayumi and takes Tsugumi, shattering his wife. She comes to him in the rain begging forgiveness, as Hajime rejects her, sending her into the rain with the promise that she'll never see her daughter again, immediately after which she dies in a horrific car accident. "It's not my fault..." was all Hajime had to say as he looked at his wife's corpse. Ai uses this fact in her attempt to convince Tsugumi to send her father to Hell.
