Kyozo Kururugi is a powerful hostile ghost and one of the secondary antagonist in Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.


Kyozo Kururugi lived a normal life until his sister Shino was harmed in some way by her lover. Kyozo killed the lover in revenge, but in the event, Shino was overcome with guilt and hanged herself on Hikami Mountain under the watch of a shrine maiden. Kyozo in turn came to the mountain to die properly. The then-shrine maiden Emi Mikomori prepared to perform Kagemi upon him so he can die in peace. Struck with an insane fear of having his sins and secrets exposed, he killed Emi and fled the mountain in defiance of tradition. Painting himself with sacred writing and resolving to kill every shrine maiden on the mountain, he began a killing spree that included Hitsugimori at the Hall of Flame Preservation. For the shrine maidens, he also gouged out their eyes so they would not see his sins. Finally, he returned to the Pool of Purification, then set himself on fire and slit his own throat.
