The elder brother of Miku Hinasaki, the main protagonist from the first Fatal Frame. Upon learning of Junsei Takamine's disappearance, Mafuyu takes it upon himself to enter the Himuro Mansion to find him. The player controls him in the prologue, but control is then switched to Miku after he is attacked by Kirie. Although Kirie usually kills her victims, Mafuyu is spared due to his striking resemblance to her old lover.
Depending on which ending the player gets, Mafuyu either stays in the mansion after the player defeats Kirie, saying that if her pain can be relieved if he stays by her side then he'll do it, or he will escape the crumbling mansion with his sister, then commenting about how Kirie sacrificed her entire life and will continue suffering to bring other spirits to peace, or he will escape the crumbling mansion with his sister, and Kirie's lost lover's spirit reunites with her. The first ending is considered canon, due to the fact that in the third game Miku is lead through the Manor of Sleep in hopes of finding her dead brother.
Fatal Frame III: The TormentedEdit
In the end of Miku's journey in her dream of the Himuro Mansion, she opens a door and the screen fades black and white. Miku then see Mafuyu's spirit walking to an almost endless hallway. Miku calls Mafuyu, but he doesn't answer. Miku starts running towards Mafuyu, and Rei emerges from Miku. As Miku runs away to see her brother, Rei attempts to follow her, but she was too fast and disappeared. As Rei wakes up, she discovers that Miku will not wake up. It became clear that she was possessed by Mafuyu's spirit.
Fatal Frame V: Maiden of Black Water Edit
Mafuyu briefly reappears again in a cutscene in Fatal Frame V, in which he and Miku are joined by the Yuukon ritual, a form of posthumous marriage. Miku speaks often of Mafuyu and her longing to be with him again. Her daughter, Miu, is revealed to be a Yomi Ko, the child of a dead person and a living one, and it is heavily implied in the game that Mafuyu is Miu's father, though this was not confirmed until the release of the official guidebook. The guidebook explains that Miu was conceived in Miku's dream at the end of FF3, when she and Mafuyu were able to meet briefly at the Abyss of the Horizon.
