Kiriko is a ninja healer who is aided by her kitsune spirit. She can throw protection suzu to her allies, or kunai against her enemies. Kiriko is cheeky and full of life. She has tongue-in-cheek style humor, and is not afraid of teasing others, regardless of how intimidating they might seem. She exudes youthful energy and intelligence; a combination that makes her extremely personable. Any disrespect or sass sent her way is simply redirected. For generations, the Yamagami family served and protected Kanezaka by following traditional paths. Kiriko, however, forged her own path by mixing the old and the new. While she respects tradition, Kiriko believes that traditions must change to reflect modern thinking. The influences of her grandmother and mother have shaped Kiriko into a hybrid of healer and warrior.
