Appearance

Cantus Hojo is a middle-aged Japanese-American woman. In her career as a singer-songwriter, she has been known for her practical and down-to-earth fashion. When asked about her style, Hojo commented that she doesn’t really give much thought to it, mostly focusing on what is practical for gardening and playing blaseball.

History

Cantus Hojo is known in her hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio as a locally famous country-folk singer, a co-organizer of town festivals and holiday events, a loving mother and good neighbor, a gardener whose produce is a staple of the Wapakoneta Farmer’s Market, and a batter for the town’s blaseball team, The Ohio Worms. When interviewed by splorts outlets on how Hojo is able to balance the many roles she carries in her life, she simply smiled and said it’s easy for her to do what she loves doing.

Hojo has always been well-liked by the citizens of Wapakoneta, and has many fans of her music throughout Auglaize County, but it is her position on the Worms that has truly catapulted her to international fame. According to Hojo, blaseball wasn’t something she had ever considered much in her life until she started dating former Ohio Worms player Mindy Kugel. It was Hojo’s relationship to Kugel that convinced her to join the Worms.

Trivia

  • Hojo's gardening talents include a special quirk: the succulents and cacti in her garden act and behave like animals. Cantus does not fully control these plants, which often act of their own volitions.
  • The special connection between Hojo and her plants is rumored to derive directly from Greg, the Worm God.
  • Hojo's plants have been known to listen to Blaseball broadcasts intently. A desire to please her plants further pushed Hojo to join a Blaseball team, herself.
  • It is rumored that Hojo may have some small ability as a witch or wielder of minor magics. This may explain her skill at professional blaseball despite never having previous interest in any splorts. Those close to Hojo have also been known to describe her as having a connection to her plants bordering on the supernatural. Hojo herself has declined to comment on her apparent magical ability.
