—Shiragiku to Young Kunihiko Asou
Biography[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
She is able to read people's minds (a skill known as Mitori) and shows up at the Katashiro Shrine with a hitogatami (人形見), a faceless doll, whispering mysterious words to visitors.
Shiragiku, being a Miko who is closer to death at a young age and was sentenced to live not longer than 7 years, has been chosen to be a sacrifice for Mt. Hikami. It is known that as long as the sacrifice is closer to death, the deeper is her understanding of the afterworld, and the longer she will be able to live as an eternal flower. Born with white hair and red eyes, she was not able to really make friends with her fellow Miko. One day, under the cherry blossom trees, she meets young Dr. Kunihiko Asou, and there their friendship bloomed. At the day of the festival, she explains that the sacrifice is given the privilege to choose her future partner. She offers Asou her spirit item: a bundle of her hair, as a sign of their promise. Unfortunately, as time passed, Dr. Asou had forgotten this promise and was not able to return to Shiragiku's side.

Battle[edit | edit source]
When Shiragiku attacks the character, she can raise the faceless doll in front of her, and then appear two more false Shiragikus (if you photograph them, they will disappear, and in their place will remain two dolls).
Etymology[edit | edit source]
- The name Shiragiku means "white" (白) (shira) and "chrysanthemum" (菊) (kiku/giku).
