All About Sanaki Kasuga

Titles and other Names: Shura of the Flowering Battlefield

Theme: Bloody Devotion

Flower: Japanese Andromeda

Appearance and Personality:

Sanaki is a young woman with light purple eyes and hair in a faint cherry blossom pink. Her hair is long, reaching well past her shoulders down to mid-back and usually tied loosely. Five feet and four inches in height with a slim build, she bears an ethereal yet delicate beauty. An air of peace and serenity exudes from her and she is often found visiting long-forgotten shrines and graveyards to sweep them clean.

As a priestess of the Onizuka clan's religious branch, she sees all people equally regardless of age, gender, race, or rank. This leads to situations where she fails to recognize a social hierarchy or break unspoken rules, but this is never done on purpose or with ill-will. This quirk may have developed as a result of her unorthodox upbringing as an initiate in the remote reaches of the Tori Mountains. She forgives easily and maybe be fooled easily–but only for the first time.

Most people associate her mildness with weakness or foolishness, but this is not the case. She often knows more than she lets on, and only mentions it when she is asked or when she believes disclosing such information is appropriate. The odd combination of inquisitiveness and contentment allows her to ponder the more philosophical questions of life. Her overall nature makes her the perfect listener and secret-keeper, as she never reveals shared information without discretion. Very few things offend her, if at all, and she works well with others in a group. When a friend is faced with failure or a difficult situation, she is always willing to lend a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on without criticism or judgment. She might not know the answer to a problem or how to comfort someone, but she tries her best.

In battle, she wholeheartedly lends her support to her allies and her disposition drastically changes. Using her strength and speed, she can take on the role of a fighter, defender, or even a diversion if needed. She uses her situational awareness to discern who needs her help the most and will cover for them without being asked. When in combat, Sanaki becomes ruthlessly methodical in her unyielding, unrelenting assault on an enemy–a trait which has earned her the nickname 'Shura' among her peers.


Sanaki was among many orphans who were given refuge by the Onizuka clan after their villages were ravaged by illness. She and several girls were selected by Lady Shizuka to be inducted into the clan's three branches according to their talents.

Clothing and Equipment:

Glaive named Guan Yu.

Talents and Abilities:

Sanaki is well-versed in the art of kagura–a form of ritual dance used in religious ceremonies. These dances are commonly used in divination and purification, allowing the dancer to channel sacred power to perform miraculous feats. In addition to her mystic arts, she is capable of performing traditional dances from her native homeland. As a war priestess she performs both martial and religious duties on the battlefield, tending to the injured and giving the dying their last rites while being just as capable in cutting down enemies as a seasoned soldier.

Her expertise as a war priestess manifests through her ability to invoke different elemental states based on creatures in folklore. These states give her varying elemental attributes and conjure different effects which she can utilize in combat. She can freely switch between states to combine different elemental attacks with her dancing skills, making her a versatile fighter. Skilled in martial and close-combat techniques, she deals devastating melee attacks using katars, fans, and her glaive. And if all else fails, she can use her fists.

Her current states are as follows:

  • Karura - The Maelstrom: The elemental state of wind. Named after the mythological avian creature, this state grants the user with heightened speed and agility. When used in conjunction with her katars, her slashes are akin to the fierce talons of a bird of prey. Through this state she has gained an affinity for the wind element.

  • Kasha - The Burning Wheel: Named after a monster which was said to spirit away the corpses of the wicked, this conjures two feline spirit beasts riding upon flaming spectral wheels. The wheels are stylized in the shape of a sun, with the blades resembling flames. These spectral cats chase down enemies and vanish after dealing a single blow.

  • Tennyo - Avatar of Mercy: Named after the celestial maidens of divine grace, this state allows the user to imbue weapons with holy power and to heal the wounds of others. With her enchanted fans, she can envelop allies within a purifying wind while keeping enemies at bay.

  • Rakshasa - Avatar of Fury: The elemental state of fire. Named after the mythological fiend, this state grants the user with great strength and endurance. When used in conjunction with her draconic gauntlets, she can deliver powerful blows with a searing touch. Through this state she has gained an affinity for the fire element.

  • Divine Dance of the Windflower:
