Katsura Karin ((かつら) ()(りん)) was an orphan taken in and raised by a family of Chinese sleeper agents. They treated her horribly and forced her to work as a spy and assassin on behalf of their country. She and her foster sister infiltrated the National Knight Academy posing as ordinary students. They were a part of a plot to assassinate the young King Hayashizaki Kazuki and seize control of the school. After the plot failed Kazuki took Karin under his wing and helped her re-discover her humanity after being treated as a disposable “puppet” by her foster family.

AppearanceEdit

Karin is a short girl, she has dark blue hair as well as light brown eyes.

PersonalityEdit

Karin had a stern and stoic personality at first. From the moment she was adopted she was taught to think of herself as a mere pawn to be used and thrown away, not as a human being. She desperately wanted the approval on her sociopathic foster sister but never obtained it. It was Kazuki who finally introduced her to simple human kindness and helped her to embrace the idea of having a happy life. She quickly becomes far more cheerful and a major otaku.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Her father was a police officer, but he was killed in line of duty by an Illegal Magician during the period of Tokyo’s Great Destruction. She was later adopted by the Hayashi household, but Karin wasn't given the surname of Hayashi. Her foster family forced her to become a spy and assassin working on behalf of China. Luxuries like tasty food and hot water with which to bathe became foreign to her. She became obsessed with gaining her sadistic sister’s approval and would obey any order given. She enrolled in the Swordsmanship Division of the National Knight Academy for a mission.

PlotEdit

Volume 4Edit

A number of students at the National Knight Academy were assaulted by a mysterious figure garbed in black. Thankfully no one had suffered any permanent harm so far. But the fact that the security cameras hadn’t caught any of these crimes indicated a familiarity with their layout. Karin ran into Hayashizaki Kazuki and Amasaki Miō as they were walking home at night after a date. She had been concealing her presence and her magic power but he still detected her, which she found shocking and impressive. He recognized her as a master at the martial arts. Also he realized she was using a method of attack designed to conceal her magic and technique so no one will discover who she is working on behalf of. As the young King, Kazuki was her primary target. She killed him with a palm strike which stopped his heart then fled. What she didn’t know was that his companion Miō could heal him with magic. Kazuki had let her hit him on purpose to learn what style she was using, relying on Miō to bringing back. It was a foolish risk, but he realizes she was using Chinese Kenpo.

It was arranged by the new Board Chairman of the National Knight Academy Takasugi Takayoshi that the election for Chief Student Council President would be preceded by a tournament. Each candidate would form a team made up of two people from the Magic Division and two people from the Swordsmanship Division. This contest was meant to display the fighting and leadership skills of all the candidates. All students would then get to vote based on their impressions of them. There were several with fine reputations at the Academy and they got together at the Witch's House to discuss it. But in the end only three decided to enter the race.

The new Headmaster Mr. Amasaki had nominated Kazuki. His teammates were the Headmaster’s step-daughter Rank-A Amasaki Miō as well as Sword Division President Hikita Kōhaku and her best friend Tsukahara Kazuha, an incompetent swordsman who was also an Illegal Magician. The strongest candidate Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya partnered with Rank-A Hiakari Koyuki. Also joining her was former Sword Division President Hayashizaki Kanae and her fellow former council member Torazō Yamada. The third candidate was Magic Division Vice-President Hoshikaze Hikaru, who teamed up with foreigner Rank-A Charlotte Lieben Frau and former Sword Division Vice-President Kamiizumi Iori. This left a space on her team vacant for another swordsman. Kimura Tomomi was delighted to accept her invitation.

They all gathered for the meeting where the candidates would officially enter the tournament. Kazuki was approached by a pair of powerful sisters who always worked only as a pair. The twins were identical except Ryūtaki Miyabi was an Elf. She showed interest in Kazuki because he had defeated Nyarlathotep, who had corroded the mind of the former Headmaster and was trying to force her to become his research subject. As a result she was throwing herself at Kazuki while her sister Shinobu objected. Her interest in him only increased when she realized what kind of relationship he had with Koyuki, who was also an Elf. They were teamed up with identical twin boys from the Sword Division, Takasugi Shūsui and Takasugi Harunari who were the sons of the Board Chairman. Like him they were extremists who advocated for depriving the Magika Stigma of all civil rights and brainwashing them to keep them in line. These positions were extreme but Miyabi hated the Japanese government after learning of their connection to the Elves and favored chaos. Another team was led by Mibu Akira who partnered with Asamiya Anna. They were delinquents who had been enrolled in the school against their will after receiving an Enigma. The swordsmen in their group were Karin and her foster sister Hayashi Shizuka. Karin looked at Kazuki in shock and he easily guessed why.   

16 teams signed up when teacher Liz Liza Westwood called the meeting to order. She laid out the ground rules for the tournament. Magic users couldn’t bring in weapons. Swordsmen could only use standard magic and Sacred Treasures were banned. This was particularly restrictive for Kazuki’s team which otherwise would be a much more imposing group. A lottery was used to set the bracket for the tournament. The Headmaster became worried after seeing the list of candidates. All but 3 of the 16 people were irresponsible or untested people. He worried they were all on the payroll of the Board Chairman.  If he could install a puppet he could seize full control of the school. By doing so he could not only use that to derail the key reforms they were pushing for but he could influence generations of Knights in the wrong direction, just as the former Headmaster had done. Such theories were impossible to prove, as was their suspicion that he was among a number of Chinese agents who had infiltrated the Academy.

Kazuki made a show of walking off alone in order to draw out his attacker from before. He is easily able to lure out the same assassin and avoided her surprise attack. She demanded an explanation for his survival. He replied telling her he had figured out the style she was using. He stayed purely on the defensive and despite her incredible speed was able to avoid taking any hits as he analyzed her technique until he fully understood it. She gets increasingly frustrated about this. He finally used his secret technique to cut through her Defensive Magic. He could easily have used that to kill her, but he did so just to remove her mask and verify her identity as the girl who was glaring at him during the meeting. He even knew her name was Katsura Karin and that she was a first year in the Sword Division. He used Suicide Black to distract her with pain then restrained her with Desire Tentacle. But before he could get any answers from her she used her own Summoning Magic to strike back and free herself. Dakki told her she could never win against such an opponent who was able to keep a cool head and analyze her so perfectly. She was clearly impressed with Kazuki and ordered Karin to retreat.

Kazuki’s team fought in the first match. His tactics concentrated on covering for each other and relying on teamwork. This went exactly as planned and they won without much trouble. In the second match Kaguya’s team dominates the other side, employing the exact strategy Kazuki predicted. In the third match the twin brothers covered the twin sisters until Lunatic Labyrinth drew them all into a mental world where the other side lost quickly. In the fifth match Hikaru’s team used excellent teamwork and skill to defeat the opponents easily. In the sixth match, Mibu’s team while facing Shiraha Sekairi stunned everyone when their swordsmen didn’t even participate. The spell casters were trained enough in Chinese Kenpo to counter the enemy swordsmen and were able to dodge incoming magic. It became a decisive victory for them.

The second round began with Kazuki’s match against Kaguya. In a direct confrontation they could never win, but he had seen through the weaknesses of their opponents. Again using teamwork and the tactics Kazuki devised they are able whittle down the other side and they finally gang up on Kaguya and win. The twin sisters won the second match exactly as they had before. Hikaru faced Mibu’s team next. The swordsmen on that team had hidden their true power before. While Hikaru and Lotte weren’t disadvantaged in magic, their opponents kept mysteriously getting back up every time they were beaten. It was clear they were cheating somehow but the Board Chairman refused to declare the match forfeit without proof. Hikaru received a savage beating from Hayashi who was able to pierce Defensive Magic and injure her gravely while laughing about it.  Kazuki called for the match to end, while everyone else was slow to react. Realizing Hayashi intended to murder Hikaru, Mibu just barely managed to end the fight with her magic first.

After the battle, Hayashi was questioned about the method she used to injure her opponents so badly. She apologizes for going overboard and promised to share the technique with the school if their team won, knowing that idea would appeal to voters. Hayashi had brainwashed a number of the participants in the tournament before it began. She then had 10 of them who were already eliminated surround and attack Kazuki and Hikaru while they were on a date. A squad of German Knights led by Beatrix Baumgard jumped in to help Kazuki. They recognize the brainwashing and Kazuki notices Karin and Hayashi hiding nearby. The Germans recognize the latter as one of the most dangerous operatives of China. She can not only brainwash people but grant them Diving Protection that allows them to fully recover whenever they are defeated. The professional Knights lack any methods to free those poor girls without killing them. But by kissing Hikaru Kazuki is able to do a full summoning of Baal. The girls are drained of magic power and pass out, free of control. This attack affects Karin too but Hayashi is able to withstand it. Their plot foiled, Hayashi teleports herself and Karin away. The Knight Order had taken those freed girls into custody and promised to investigate the matter.

The day of the semi-finals arrived. Kazuki confronted the twin brothers with dangerous ideals in the first match. They were unable to prevent the casting of Lunatic Labyrinth and they were all drawn into a mental world. Lunatic Labyrinth ended, the brothers were out already and the sisters were dropping Burning Icicle on the party from the sky. Miō was trying to defend them but her magic wasn’t very effective. Kazuki cast Storm Fort to remove the threat. The sisters cast their Union Magic but Kazuki cleaved the incoming attack in two. The audience cheered and Miyabi was stunned and impressed. She landed and immediately surrendered over her sister’s objections; they had no way to win any longer. Her sister and the twin brothers question why she surrendered like that. Kazuki had seen through her true motives. She admitted she was testing him and his worthiness as a leader. Miyabi clearly confessed her love over her sister’s objections. It was revealed that her sister refused to recognize her as an Elf. Her mind wouldn’t accept reality and she wouldn’t spend time with anyone but Miyabi. But this fact also saved Miyabi from the loneliness other Elves experienced. She suggested that Kazuki should conquer them both. As expected the most dangerous team won the second match against Yumeno Shiori and progressed to the finals.

The Knight Order discovered that many of the tournament’s participants had been brainwashed and had been left with no memory of their actions. It also seemed that this brainwashing was also why they had all entered the tournament in the first place. They had also investigated the background of Karin and Hayashi, who hadn’t been arrested because Kazuki’s word alone wasn’t enough proof. The Germans had told Kazuki Hayashi was a well known agent, so her identity was probably fake. The final match would be their last chance to assassinate Kazuki. They might end up going overboard and exposing their true colors.  

Volume 5Edit

Before the finals a series of exhibition matches were held. This allowed the eliminated teams to display their talents again. It wound up being Kaguya and Hikaru in a battle for third place. In the end only the leaders were left. Those two had fought many times and as always it ended with Hikaru’s loss. Before the final match Kazuki spoke to his friends about the plot behind the scenes. He also told them that the swordsmen on the opposing team were contracted with Divas from China. Kazuki also confirmed that it was Divine Protection by Hayashi’s Diva that allowed Mibu and company to continually regenerate magic. They couldn’t win unless they could beat Hayashi first or cut off that blessing. It was possible that Hayashi had brainwashed her entire team and if so Kazuha should be able to free them. But they would forfeit the match if she used Summoning Magic before the spies did, so they needed to force their hand.

Liz Liza-sensei acted as referee. As was the plan Kazuki took grave risks to take on Hayashi and Karin alone. His team displayed excellent teamwork holding the magic users back. He was able to utilize numerous types of magic at once, shocking the audience and frightening Hayashi. She forced Karin to act as her meat shield, who suffered terrible pain as a result. Kazuki managed to attack Hayashi directly and forced them to use their Summoning Magic. Despite the danger the Board Chairman still refused to stop the match, having a logical argument prepared. Kazuha generated a weapon she was able to use to cut off the Divine Protection from the magic users. Though Kōhaku was forced to withdraw due to the damage she took while protecting her. But due to an attack by Mibu, who had never been brainwashed, her weapon was lost before Kazuki could use it to free Karin. Hayashi forced her sister to use a dangerous wide-area attack despite the risk to innocent people. Miō managed to rescue the enemy magicians and Kazuki did the same for Kazuha. In that desperate situation he had only one choice. He apologized to Kazuha before kissing her. Doing a full summoning of her Diva allowed him to disperse all the dangerous magic, free Karin from control and force Hayashi to escape while vowing revenge.   

Karin woke up on Kazuki’s bed and was quite shocked. Kazuki told her that Hayashi had already fled, leaving her behind. It didn’t take her long to accept she had been discarded. The room was heavily secured and monitored. There was also a bracelet limiter around her wrist to prevent the use of magic. She wasn’t happy but he told her the alternative was to send her to prison for life. He asked about her sister and she admitted she had never been given the family name of her adopted family. He told her he had also been an orphan, but he had been treated kindly. She kept refusing to eat the food he made her but he would eat it himself to prove it wasn’t poisoned. He had taken the week off school to watch her but didn’t interrogate her. After a full day the self-proclaimed “puppet” gave in to her hunger. She was clearly unused to good food. He insists she see herself a person from now on. He borrowed an anime from Lotte to watch and she hadn’t seen anything like it and dismissed the value. But she became hooked and asked questions about the love story. They have a brief debate over it until Lotte barges in to discuss it, being a major otaku. She kept them up late discussing it and they all fell asleep together. A tired Lotte had to go to school the next day.

Meanwhile Kazuki noted that Karin was in dire need of a bath. He had been cleaning himself with magic but she didn’t know how to do so. So they wound up bathing together, wearing swimsuits. She wasn’t used to bathtubs or even hot water at her house. She tried to conceal how much she enjoyed the bath, without success. That night she prepared to kill him in his sleep but he stopped her. Leme also appeared briefly to prove she was watching his back. She didn’t know how to deal with these new feelings of hers. But he encouraged her to reject the dark views of her sister and seek a happier life. She would rather complete her mission and die. But Dakki told her it was hopeless without her help. She should have been sealed, but she had altered herself to bypass the seal. She was now the Japanese Diva Tamamo no Mae. She encouraged Karin to surrender her body to gain the power necessary to win. He told her not to give up on having a happy life. Forced to choose, she no longer had the desire to kill and he embraced her.  Her Diva was delighted by this, she had given her that push to get her to embrace her true feelings. She now considered herself a subordinate of Kazuki, insisting he treat Karin well. She was a Diva of numerous faiths anyway, and ad no special loyalty to China.   

Kazuki returned to class just in time for the formal vote. Those radical twin brothers had put on an elaborate election campaign in his absence. Kazuki had left his own campaign to his teammates Miō and Kōhaku. Kazuki worried about funny business with the vote count. But in the end Kazuki was elected by a wide margin. Karin had now become a hardcore NEET. Kazuki insisted she must start attending school again, this time in the Magic Division where he could monitor her. Karin was given her own room. Kazuki paid a visit to the Student Council room. His friends all joined them. It was agreed that Kazuki would be based here, as the Sword Division buildings were still being rebuilt. An election had been held and Kanae became President again with Kōhaku as Vice-President. He was confident with Kaguya and Kanae supporting him. They made suggestions on ways to increase interaction between the schools, and he was most interested in the creation of a school newspaper.

Yumeno Shiori won the post of newspaper chairman. Miō noted she was the top of the Rank-B students and frankly at Rank-A level. They spent the day beginning to set up the newspaper office in the Witch’s House. Kazuki ran into Lotte and Karin dressed in sexy cosplay outfits. They played around acting out scenes from a favorite anime until they were interrupted by Koyuki. A few days later they were ready to publish the first newspaper issue. Shiori had overworked herself and was exhausted. Kazuki focused on introducing himself and the other Student Council members. He also outlined his policy plans and welcomed suggestions and comments. He also included information on how each school operated. When he contacted the Headmaster for final approval he was told that the Board Chairman and his entire family had vanished without a trace. That night news reports stated there had been a massive coordinated strike on all Knight Order posts in western Japan by a mysterious force including mysterious Illegal Magicians. All of western Japan had now been conquered by this unknown army and was now under a complete communications blackout.

The former Board Chairman appeared on TV announcing that western Japan was declaring independence and calling itself Yamato. All the politicians with secret ties to China appeared to be involved in this plot and had made an alliance with Loki. They were claiming legitimacy under the banner of the Japanese Mythology rather than the 72 Pillars, which people weren’t necessarily opposed to. By doing so they could maintain the facade that Yamato wasn’t just a puppet state of China. The Japanese Divas appeared to have fallen into a Wild God state after being ignored for so long. Their contractors had apparently all joined this movement too. Kazuha had avoided this fate by building her Diva a shrine and caring for him. A border wall was being constructed.

The Student Council met with two third years Kodzuki Kanon and Yagumo Akane who were already serving in the Knight Order. They were the Student Council members from last year. The students were called into a meeting. To respond to an urgent request for reinforcement at the border, Kazuki would be leading an elite force of students from both schools to reinforce them. Kazuki told them this was entirely voluntary but urged those with the courage to fight to volunteer. They wound up with a force of about 150 people. The school had become the headquarters for the war effort. 10 more third years who escaped enemy territory gathered there. They were suddenly joined by the German Knights Beatrix, Damian and Eleonora Abendroth too. They offered to cooperate as allies. Kazuki vouched for their strength. The Germans and the Student Council members were put in charge of squads under Kazuki’s command. They would meet up with the 200 Knights who escaped the west. But Kazuki insisted the seniors must rest first and prepared a meal. 

They passed quite a few people on the road who seemed to be refugees. Lotte told him that she detected hostile intent from then. The buses were suddenly fired on and destroyed. The students were slow to react due to shock but finally came to their senses. It was a perfectly executed ambush. Kazuki too was slow to react when he realized that Hayashi had brainwashed those ten third years and ordered them to target the leaders Kanon and himself. He only survived because Beatrix shielded him and fell deep into Magic Intoxication. Kazuha freed those girls and they enemy fled as the Knight Order arrived. They took several enemy prisoners.

Kazuki and his close friends raided their classmates’ rooms and confiscated their cell phones. Given what happened that day, Kazuki suspected an information leak. There might even be a spy among the students. He told them they were conducting a surprise raid on the enemy. They were able to slip away because his friend was on guard duty and owed him a favor. Once they had escaped he explained his plan in more detail. He divided the students into squads based on their specialty. His friends’ unique skills allowed them to conceal their approach and take out the guards. They surrounded the enemy garrison and were able to destroy the building despite being detected and fired upon. With perfect coordination between the squadrons they attacked them from different angles and they fell into confusion. Kōhaku sent a signal when she located Hayashi. He carried Karin and raced there. Karin’s Diva was admiring his impressive leadership. With a little assistance from Miyabi Kazuki totally overpowered Hayashi and even cut through her escape magic, impressing even Joka. In the end she shamelessly ordered Karin to protect her. But Karin knew what real love and friendship was now and fought her sister instead. Karin defeated her easily and Kazuki made sure to capture her alive. Kaya appeared on the back of a dragon and ordered the troops to retreat. She offered her praise to Kazuki for this bold action. Behind her Maya was clearly terrified of heights. They returned to camp with captured prisoners and freed allies.

Upon questioning a Japanese Diva who had calmed down they were told all the shrines in western Japan had been destroyed. Those people said they were working for the government, to show their devotion to the 72 Pillars. But the 72 Pillars didn’t demand such things and it was easy to guess the deception. The Yamato guys had fooled them with that simple trick, to drive them into a Wild God state. They used that to turn them against Japan and the 72 Pillars and get them to support a new state based on Japanese Mythology. If they could calm them out of their Wild God state and explain the truth Yamato would fall apart. Kazuki and Karin were brought to the prison where Hayashi had been found dead, having committed suicide. Kazuki comforted Karin as she cried.

Volume 6 Edit

Their group was headed to the beach in cars driven by Akane, Kanon and Lotte. From there Kazuki and Kazuha would slip away on a boat to infiltrate Ise Grand Shrine by sea. Some girls were unhappy that only the two of them were going, but since this was an infiltration mission, having a small group was essential. The plan was to calm the rage of the Chief God there, which was the fastest way to calm all the Japanese Divas down. After all, the Diva they had already calmed out of her Wild God state had been easy to convince of the truth.  If they succeeded Yamato’s base of support and facade of legitimacy would crumble. In order to hide their purpose from the spy, it was said the group was allowed to take a brief vacation. They were given two beacons they were expected to light up after the mission to indicate success or failure.

The Knight Order had arranged to rent a beachfront property, complete with changing rooms. Kazuki, as the only guy present, was the fastest to change. As the girls gradually arrived he planned to offer them honest praise on their swimsuits. Karin wore a simple middle-school style suit. Kazuki and Lotte went out on the boat, which was small due to the need to avoid detection. It was equipped with GPS and a silent motor but was designed to appear nondescript to avoid drawing attention. The Ryūtaki sisters wandered off alone. After he got back Kazuha took her turn learning to operate the boat. Kazuki and Kazuha changed into casual clothes that wouldn’t look out of place in Yamato and they boarded the rather cramped boat. They weren’t carrying swords, to seem less suspicious. Their friends waved goodbye as they set sail.

Kazuki unlocked a new skill and was able to contact Miō with Telepathy. He let them know the mission was a success. He said many enemy magic users will have fled and urged them to attack new. Akane and Kanon arrived at the front lines for what should have been a surprise assault. But thanks to the spy Yamato knew their movements and were amassing their forces to protect the targeted garrison. Though this strike was no longer a surprise Kazuki said that large numbers of the Yamato magic users would have already left the battlefield. He also believed that the professional training and experience of the Knight Order would give them an edge. Akane selected the tactic for the battle. The students from the Knight Academy were among the rear guard. The other side didn’t seem to be lacking in numbers but Akane had faith in Kazuki. Indeed when they called Yamato’s bluff most of the rear guard turned out to be fakes without the ability to use Summoning Magic.  

Lotte flew above the battle using Deep Striker. While dodging incoming magic she kept in constant contact with Akane letting her know about the situation. Thus they could redeploy their forces quickly when needed. The discipline and training of their swordsmen was definitely superior to their opponents. They were able to break through the enemy lines. When the front line got into trouble students led by Hikaru jumped in to help. Lotte was playing a vital role here, but it took persuasion by Kazuki and Akane before the Knight Order would allow her to help, due to her being an Illegal Magician. Japan’s success in this battle so far could be said to be a combination of Kazuki’s creative style and Akane’s knowledge of traditional tactics.

Thanks largely to Akane’s leadership, it was looking like a great victory for Japan. She was suddenly contacted by Lotte who detected powerful enemy magicians approaching at high speed. The Yamato government had made an alliance with China and a group of their magicians had turned up at the last minute to help Yamato. As the enemy charged on horseback their efforts to take them out with long-range attacks were ineffective. Akane tried to organize the shocked troops, stunned China was brazenly getting involved here. The enemy pushed through their lines easily, their tactics were meaningless. They approached the headquarters where Kanon and Akane were. They decided to end the battle by killing the leaders, Akane was immobile from shock.

Kazuki arrived on the battlefield carrying Kazuha and Kamimura Itsuki. They would be unable to reach their friends in time so at Kazuha’s suggestion they were thrown. They weren’t able to hurt the enemies but succeeded in distracting them. Kazuki also launched a high-speed attack and failed to affect anything. Kanon used a spell that removed the Sacred Treasures held by the enemies.  The allowed them to fight back to some degree. But the Japanese Knights were still in disarray and helpless. It seemed things would get worse when Lotte detected more strange magicians approaching. But these figures on horseback had come to help Japan. Their leader used a Sacred Treasure that disrupted all the magic in the area. The enemies were left vulnerable by this and fled along with the Yamato troops. The Knights were ordered not to pursue. The strangers offered to join their ranks. It turned out they belonged to an alliance of Asian countries opposed to the aggressive expansion of China.

Kazuki attended a meeting that also served as a mission debriefing. The leaders of Ryōzanpaku were hoping to form an alliance with a Magically Advanced Country. Japan had always remained neutral in these conflicts. Soon the international community would step in and force a cease fire. They would then investigate and issue a judgment of which government was the legitimate ruling body of Japan. If there was a divided opinion on this, things might not be settled until the battle between Kazuki and Ikōsai Aisu ends and Japan had am official King. They were interrupted by the German Knights, including the newly recovered Beatrix. They announced they would be suspending their agreement with the government of Japan until this matter was settled.
