Jougen is Seishuku Temple's Master.
He is a very good practitionner. Miyoshi said that he was stronger than them (Mari Yuge, Hayato and Miyoshi himself) and that Seishuku Temple was his playground. He has the level of a Divine General but he doesn't have the battle experience.
He doesn't want to be affiliated with the Onmyo Agency and is ready to oppose them, and for that purpose, he wants Harutora to become Master and battle the Onmyo Agency.
