Tsugumi Hattori ( (はっ) (とり) つぐみ, Hattori Tsugumi) is the friend of Musashi and Kojiro Kanemaki and part of the Kanemaki Bushi alongside with them. She aims to become a kind Bushi who protects the weaker people just like her sister.

Appearance Edit

Tsugumi is a beautful girl with long, green hair tied up in two ponytails. Attached to these ponytails are bells. Her usual apparel consists of a green and pink kimono with matching boots. Her weapons are worn on her arms.

Personality Edit

Hattori is a sweet girl who is quick to forgive. It is, however, also shown she has a fear of letting other toxic people go, and she is only able to do it when her friends helped her. It's shown she is also a good fighter. She is manipulative as she flashes for boys to change their attention to that, so she can kill them off. It is entirely possible that she harbors a certain degree of attraction towards Musashi by taking into consideration how annoyed she was when the young lad blushed before Mitsuru and Michiru respectively.

An interesting aspect of her personality is a combination of protecting others just like her older sister did in the past and a need to follow orders under a "Lord" to keep her damaged self-esteem in check. The latter was initially exploited by Lord Kosameda until she broke her ties with him and it only returned, although on a comical manner, when Kojiro became her "clan leader" at Daito Mine.

History Edit

After Tsugumi's parents died, she and her older sister, Tsubame were taken in by Hideo Kasomeda to live with the Kasomeda Bushi. Although Tsubame was a powerful Bushi, she was belittled and abused by Kasomeda. After Tsubame and her comrades die in battle, Tsugumi becomes the object of Kasomeda's abuse.
