"Seven female Warlords… That is unusual. Kenshin…"
"You need not trouble myself with the forthcoming battles. All you need do is watch. I shall show you—and the world—what it means to do battle with love in one’s heart."
"Hehe… How simple that was. Indicating the true path, allowing justice to guide us. That is why we do battle. And yet… That justice can only come about because of love. Let us fill Ransei with love. I’m sorry to keep you waiting, Kenshin."


Older sister of Kenshin, her heart is split between a kindly warmth and a strict discipline. Modest and refined, she never loses her cool.
