Rinka Yoshino is one of the major protagonists in the Samurai Shodown video game series.
Rinka is the proud daughter of the Yoshino family. It is a series of brave warriors and is considered to be the best bloodline of all Japanese warriors. As one of the wealthiest families in Japan, the Yoshino clan never expected that one day, due to inner conspiracy, their lineage would be shameful and executed by several warriors who were wealthy in Yoshino.
This conspiracy not only economically destroyed the Yoshino family, but also caused the abandonment of the Yoshino family members to Riten Kyo on the prison island. The Yoshino family was slowly dismembered in the middle of the cursed island, which was only a matter of time.
However, Rinka refused to accept the tragic fate of the Yoshino family. With her father's sword, she is now starting to join the "Rebels", an anti-Bafuku group, as well as Jushiro Sakaki and Saya, and not only plans the freedom of Riten Kyo, but also rebuilds the honor of Yoshino lienage. Rinka doesn't trust people very much, but she cares a lot about animals, especially her pet hamster Tetsunosuke. All of her attacks are named after various flowers.
- Rinka is probably one of my favorite character designs from Warrior's Rage.
