Seigi Clan (Former), Yomi's Partner
A single black-steel Katana which is aptly named 'Kurogane', and four Kunai (which are concealed beneath the kimono)
A golden flower patterned saya for her sword with a black background, and a pouch tied on her hip to store small things in: namely money.
Kaori was born to a peasant family. Her father was a veteran soldier in the Seigi Clan's small but effective army, and her mother died during childbirth. It was a struggle from the very beginning, without being taught all the proper ladylike duties. Because her father was never really around, she grew up on the streets taking what work she could get... Eventually, this evolved into work for the local Yakuza. They took her in, taught her how to fight, how to assassinate, how to drug and poison, how to mug and torture. Upon reaching the age of fifteen though, she gave it up and instead took her own path as a Ronin and sold her sword to whoever needed it. She fought in a short war with an enemy clan once alongside her father and the rest of the Seigi army, her actions earning her the nickname 'The Red Lady', though she kept it to herself that she thought most of her kills were purely luck. Recently, she got a brand new katana made, black-steel, polished and perfect.
Kaori wasn't brought up as a lot of girls were... She pretty much raised herself, and that's all that can be said.
