|Age / Birth||521 / GI0500|
|Affiliation|| Shimazu House, JAPAN|
|Appeared in||Sengoku Rance|
Kurohime is a long-time guest of the Shimazu House. In fact, she has been there for many generations and is famous for her never ending beauty that never ages. There are rumors that her everlasting youth is the result of a curse, but in reality, this is due to being the daughter of the Dark Lord Xavier. During one of Xavier´s revivals he raped many women, but Kuro´s mother was the only one to survive both, the rape and the pregnancy, although she did not survive childbirth.
She is greatly admired by the Shimazu brothers, who would do anything for her, but her feelings for them is more maternal than romantic and sees them as her valuable children. While everyone, including the Shimazu brothers, call her Kurohime, her real name is Kyouko but her father is the only one that ever refered to her by her name.
During the events of Sengoku Rance, when Xavier was revived and most of his power was restored, he presented himself at the Shimazu wishing to take over the Shimazu House to set his own Demon Army to conquer JAPAN. While the Shimazu brothers intended to fight him, Kurohime intervened and claimed that they wouldn't be able to beat him, so she agreed to surrender as long as Xavier promised to not kill the Shimazu brothers, which he agreed.
The Shimazu House was renamed as the Demon Army and the Shimazu had no choice but to join as sub-commanders, with Kurohime being held a hostage in Xavier's personal apartments. It was later revealed that she's infact his daughter, which is the reason for her immortality, and she has the unique ability to break powerful seals as well. Xavier used her to break the seal of the Soul Binder in an effort to destroy the JAPANese with its powerful curse.
During his personal moments of leisure, Xavier would spend his time raping women, but he would be dissapointed by the fact that they would quickly die from his own excess of power during the intercourse. Instead, he came to realise that, as his daughter, she would make a more durable toy, and heavily raped her several times as a result.
Personality and AppearanceEditTrue to the crush the Shimazu brothers have for her, Kurohime is an extraordinarily attractive woman with a gentle and mature disposition. She has a black-skin and a long voluptuous black hair as well, coupled with a set of strong blue eyes. Probably due to her status as the child of a Dark Lord she has a few marks from birth on her body, two black in her fronthead, and also had a strange red mark in her chest and her arms. She's an incredibly beautiful women with a hourglass figure and a body that doesn't age and stays young forever, truly a source of envy for most women.
Personality-wise, she's nothing like her brutal and savage father. She's a caring and self-less woman that is deeply worried for the fate of JAPANese. Being alive for several centuries has granted her vast experience and knowledge and she's a very rational woman that knows to make the best decisions to avoid casualties. She despises her father's cruelty and never atempted to release him from his seal even though she could have done so with ease, which greatly annoyed him. She believes that she deserves to hold responsability for her father's actions and is greatly troubled by the atrocities he does, thinking she has part of the blame solely due to being his daughter.
She's a very strong-willed woman, since she could take on the horrific torturous rape and overall abuse she suffered from her father. She worries over others more than she does about herself, which is the reason why Xavier decided that she would kill every last one of the JAPANese excluding her, as a punishment for her "rebellious nature" towards him.
In Ran's route, she's greatly indebeted to Rance for defeating Xavier before he manages to recover his power, and offers to sleep with him to show him her gratitude. While she wasn't a virgin, she claimed that she had little experience in sex and revelead that she's actually quite sensitive, side that is not shown in the True route.
Like stated earlier, due to being a Dark Lord's daughter, Kurohime was born with a wide set of unique abilities that are not possesed by any common human, or even other creatures. She doesn't age and can live forever, but she can still be hurt and is as susceptible to pain as regular humans are. However, her body is much more durable and stronger than that of the average humans, since she can take wounds that would result in death for regular people casually. She also seems to have a natural regenerative ability that allows her to recover from her injuries way faster than normal. In Sengoku Rance, she was seen going through many painful abuses from Xavier in many different ways, such as having both her wrists stabbed or having a knife thrusted deep through her throat, yet she was able to recover after a short period of time without carrying any lasting consequences.
Her most impressive and unique ability however is her ability to break any seals. It is unknown if she would be capable to break more powerful seals, like the one that was placed onto Gele by Chaos, but she proved to be powerful enough to dispel seals placed onto Forbidden Youkai deemed extremely dangerous such as the Soul Binder. In addition, her father claimed that she would've been able to free him from his seal if she'd wanted, which is an extremely powerful seal made by Geppei and passed down for generations for the specific purpose of keeping Xavier sealed, proving the immense seal-breaking potential of Kuro.
Despite all these incredible abilities, she holds no combat ability whatsoever, being incapable of fighting in the battlefield or commanding an army. However, her vast experience makes her a valuable war advisor that should not be ignored.
- She is one of the only two known individuals to have been born from a Dark Lord, the other being Hornet.
- In the original Kichikuou Rance, Kouhime's character was largely similar to Kuro, before being changed completely in Sengoku Rance.
- She's one of the few women with black skin Rance has had sex with due to how oddly uncommon they are in the Rance Series. This is also referenced by her name Kurohime meaning "Black Princess".
