Hitsugisukan is a large sheep mink with white wool and black skin. He has curved horns, a walrus mustache, and fluffy beard. He wears a dark colored king's robe and a crown. Unlike most minks, he seems to have hooves instead of humanoid hands.
Inuarashi and Nekomamushi
Hitsugisukan cares greatly for Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, to the point of teaching them the past of the Kozuki Family and the Mink Tribe, and showing them the dukedom's treasured and secret Road Poneglyph. Even after leaving the country, a letter of recommendation from Nekomamushi and Inuarashi was enough to grant the Roger Pirates access to the Whale Tree.
Abilities and Powers
Around 30 years ago, Hitsugisukan showed the Road Poneglyph hidden in the Whale Tree to Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, and explained to them the Mink Tribe's connection to the Kozuki Family, inspiring them to set sail toward Wano Country.
When the Roger Pirates visited Zou, Hitsugisukan received a letter of introduction from Nekomamushi and Inuarashi, making Hitsugisukan pleased to know that both of them were alive. He then granted the Roger Pirates access to the Road Poneglyph in the Whale Tree.
