Tetsuko Sanada (真田哲子 Sanada Tetsuko) is the late mother of Ryu and Toru. She died while she went to pick up her younger son at school, in a car crash caused by the ground frozen by the snow.


Mrs. Sanada looks remarkably similar in appearance to her son, Toru, but with more feminine features, she had a slender and good-looking figure with short light colored hair.


Not much is known about her, but it looks like she was a very kind and caring woman. We can assume that she loved his children and Chizuru.
