He took his wife's name upon their marriage and became a member of the Ushiromiya family.
He therefore does not posses the spiteful genes passed down through Ushiromiya family members, and his bright smile is very refreshing at the family conferences.
He started his business from scratch and now works as the president of a medium-sized restaurant chain. The chain seems to be growing and performing extremely well.
Higeyoshi is a large middle-aged man who normally wears a light brown suit and pink tie. His hair is trimmed short and his skin is a medium brown, like his eyes.
Although he is moved by the same desire for greed as his wife and his siblings-in-law and will fiercely question others when he suspects that they are hiding something, Hideyoshi shows himself as an affable and jovial man. He does not fail to affirm his love for his family and will support his wife when she gets out of line.
When Hideyoshi got married to Eva, he agreed to take on the Ushiromiya name while Eva struggled to gain Kinzo's approval. In the end, Kinzo adopted him into the family.

Role in the Story
One of the people to discover the victims of the first twilight. Was later murdered in the second twilight alongside Eva.
Found in the bathroom of the same guest room that Eva was found. Like Eva, there was a weapon resembling an ice-pick sticking out of his forehead.
You can't see either of them by looking through the gap of the door while the chain is set. You can't see them, so you can't reach them. Hey, how could a human possibly kill him? Kihihihihihihihihihihihi.
Was a victim of the first twilight.
His corpse was found in the chapel. The direct cause of death is unknown, but it seems his stomach was cut open and his intestines pulled out after his death. On top of that, sweets and candies were packed into his stomach.
Why would there be anything filthy inside someone's stomach?
Him, Kyrie and Rudolf go to the mansion to collect food and are ultimately murdered as part of the next three twilights. It's discovered that Hideyoshi was smoking a cigarette, implying he felt guilty and stressed at some point. EVA-Beatrice later summons his ghost to provide an alibi for Eva, who was supposedly sick inside her room.
Died in the hall of the mansion, his chest pierced by a stake-shaped weapon.
That was careless of me. Didn't think you were still alive......
Was a victim of the first twilight, killed by Chiester 00.
His corpse was found in the dining hall. About half of his head was destroyed. It's probably reasonable to assume that he was murdered with a powerful gun or something similar.
However, the witnesses don't believe that he was killed with a gun...
After George's death is discovered, he goes into a guest room where Natsuhi is hiding and cries to himself; he's then killed by an unknown assailant.
His corpse was found in a guest room on the first floor of the mansion.
A Demon Stake had pierced through his back. The tip of it reached as far as his lungs.
Because he was lying face down on the bed, it is unthinkable that this was a suicide.
Alive by the time of the game's suspension.
- According to an author note in Shinsou Kaimei Dokuhon Episode 5, Ryukishi07 wanted to give Hideyoshi glasses and a bandage on his forehead to give him the image of a clumsy person, but those ideas were rejected.
