History Edit

Not really much about her history, except that she's an assassin, a sex-witch that specializes in taking advantage in sexual activities with women and men (young such as seventeen years of age) and is a master of Kung-Fu (although she rarely depicts such moves in the series except landing a sufficient kick to Hyougo's abdomen and landing another strong hit towards Chiharu when the two were trying to save Kiriko). She also is a undercover ally of the Shinsengumi and Hitotsubashi Shigeyoshi.
