Mai Kagetsu is from Motoyoshi Village and the daughter of Tobei Kagetsu who is the head of the Kagetsu family who is one of the biggest herb seller family in Land of Fire. At first, Mai and her family lived together in one house, but when they became rich, her sister and brother stayed away from the main family house.
Mai brother Futa Kagetsu requested Lady Tsunade to send a substitute to attend the Funeral as a chief Mourner who doesn’t laugh at all. This is because, in his father's will, it was mentioned that if Futa, his elder son would inherit the entire Kagetsu family estate. However, if Futa laughs at his funeral as a chief mourner, then he would lose the estate of the Kagetsu family, and that estate will be divided among his other children. Tsunade selected Shino Aburame and Naruto Uzumaki for this mission and gave Shino the task of being the chief Mourner at the funeral because he did not laugh.
When Naruto Uzumaki and Shino Aburame were talking to Futa Kagetsu about the mission, Mai Kagetsu met them and invited them for dinner.
