Stoic and icy but willing to listen. She is calm and cool when necessary but will put down her swords in order to have some nigiri and sake. She is charismatic and controlled, which leads to her having good leadership abiltiies.


Born in YE 30 as Ketsurui Namida. She was immediately a part of the samurai part of the Ketsurui Clan. She was trained for a year and then placed at the palace as a part of the guard. She became a highly skilled and a contributor to the guard. She is not an easy person to please but she was pleased by her service. She became a Gunsotsu until it was deemed she was to be a Eihei-no-insen while they were honorable among the samurai of the Ketsurui. She protected some of the valuable members of the family while she was this rank until the samurai was disheartened by the Shadow Viper betrayal when Yuumi and Kotori had attempts on their lives and it was said samurai killed samurai. Everything came crashing down. Her good friend was involved in a terrible misunderstanding. This friend and member of the samurai clan committed seppukku over being associated with a suspicion of being a Shadow Viper. Namida as she was then known considered suicide herself for losing someone close to her but continued to strive towards greatness for the Empire.

She transferred to become a power armor pilot and excelled at it. She focused on forcing her mind to power her power armor ad nothing else for a long time. Namida started to push all of her energy into piloting. Then she was transferred without her say to be a Karibito-no-akuma, demon-hunter. This rank allowed her to work as part of a team to be a killer of enemies of the Empire. But when she started to know the true enemies of the empire, this Neko was showing signs of anxiety and depression. She withdrew into herself and never came out of the feeling.

She was then asked to be part of a samurai squadron, Y.S.S. Himeyuri. She declined the offer because of her crippling feelings of loneliness within her clan. She didn't want to be forced out of her comfort zone of piloting where she was already and sleeping and nothing much more. She was almost strong-armed into the position but the Daimyo was never involved and the position transfer fizzled away. When the attempts on the Ketsurui princesses' lives failed but still happened because of the samurai on the Himeyuri, this samurai Neko withdrew even further until she was no longer fit for combat and training and was sent on leave by the Daimyo herself.

She then left the Ketsurui Samurai Clan and was stripped of her Eihei body and weapons. She was to wander with the yukata and hakama on her back. She did so for years as her own self-assigned Arahoshi or perhaps Ronin. The titles didn't matter for Kuro while she traveled around, acquiring knowledge and experience as well as equipment. In a few years she began to cultivate her own budo while traveling with her small group of Arahoshi as they had designated themselves.

They came from all walks of life, as they say. Some of them had just taken up swords while only a few others were former members of the Ketsurui samurai like herself. Some of them had been training for years in their homes or on the road or had family members that had trained them. Somehow Kuro has an ability to find those samurai without clans and bring to them knowledge of her budo. Along her way she has gained armors and weapons through trade and exchange, oftentimes teaching lessons for such things as well as the food she eats and doing the same for her small amount of followers.

She is also a gifted crafstman and will get involved in street art challenges oftentimes as she sees them. If you were to ask her to make you a sword, she could do it. If you asked her to sit and enjoy a good meal with friends, she would do that as well. The code of honor that she has structured around her budo is very eclectic but it does not take from the eating and drinking habits of the typical Ketsurui samurai.
