She leads the team and wants nothing more but to please her cruel master.

The women has on short pale coats with high-thigh stockings, shoulder pads, arm guards and military boots, along with katanas on their backside.
History EditAs Sutemaru was describing how the women were, they created brutal murders and slay so many enemies that their pale blue coats turned black, due to the blood that were being painted on them. However, it is unclear on how many years that the members were serving Shigeyoshi.
The Shinsengumi's objective was to capture Susanoo and slay Keiichiro, if getting lucky. Originally, their ally, Houkouin, who is also close to Shigeyoshi supposed to do the job, but complains about being bored and has her own interest in other things.
Abilities and Equipment Edit
The three main members in the group are all Onigami masters. They specializes in steam puppets and created chaos at Shigeyoshi's post sentencing event after slaughtering Minister Naosuke Ii's men to respond to Shigeyoshi's Onigami, Takemikazuchi.
When they travel together to different places (either if it's for information, or to simply slay others), they appear in a navy color massive blimp that carries their Onigami puppets. The women also managed to use kites by floating down to confront Kiriko Hattori in episode 7.
