|~ Kagari Ubusana|
Kagari Ubusana (in Japanese: 産土 篝, Ubusuna Kagari) is a young shrine maiden who allied herself with the Oboro Clan's leader Hotsuma to stop her evil ancestor Hiruko Ubusuna and a minor heroine in the 2002 videogame remake Shinobi.
Kagari Ubusuna is a sixteen year old miko (in Japanese: 巫女； shrine attendant) and a descendant of the Ubusuna clan of Kumano Shrine. As the shrine's attendant, she was charged with watching over and protecting the seal that bound her mad ancestor.
For generations, the Ubusuna clan's onmyouji mages commanded the various divination techniques that helped Japan prosper, until they were embroiled in an unsavory affair. The clan lost its power and influence when one of its members, the fiendish Hiruko, ravaged Tokyo with an evil ritual that brought a devastating earthquake upon Japan. In response to this atrocity, the Japanese government commanded the Oboro clan to preside over the Ubusuna clan and prevent any further incidents from occurring.
Kagari Ubusuna, a descendant of the heretic Onmyouji, was adept at spells at childhood. During her youth, she had played with shikigami like playing house, and was skilled at Hoshimi (stargazing) and possessed telepathy. Due to these abilities, Kagari was kept isolated from the outside world, and kept at all times under surveillance. Because of this life of isolation, without friends, parents or siblings, she would often admire the insects and flowers of the shrine garden alone.
In childhood, Kagari was adept at spells and telepathy. From a young age, she played with shikigami (in Japanese: 式神； ritualistically summoned supernatural beings) and practiced houshinjoutai (in Japanese: 放心・状態； stargazing). However, because of her abilities, Kagari was kept isolated from the outside world and under strict surveillance at all times. Because she was so isolated, and because she didn't have any friends or family, she consoled herself by admiring the insects and flowers of the shrine's garden.
cheered in celebration that Tokyo were safe from the Hellspawn carnage and the world was free of Hiruko. But she was aware of Hotsuma's sacrifice and looked on sadly.
After the Golden Palace incident, the new government ordered Kagari to construct the Ariake Seal, in order to seal the Akujiki away forever. But the Nakatomi Conglomerate's greed and desire for the sword since they were first being manipulated by Hiruko himself, foiled her attempts to seal Akujiki.
