Urakaze
It's me, Urakaze, nice to meet 'ya!

Urakaze (浦風?, "Wind on the Sea") was a Kagero-class destroyer of the Imperial Japanese Navy. On 9 June 1944, she rescued 126 survivors from Tanikaze (including her commander Lieutenant Commander Ikeda) which was sunk by USS Harder (SS-257), near Tawitawi. During the Battle of Philippine Sea, she assisted survivors of the aircraft carrier Shōkaku, which was sunk by USS Cavalla (SS-244), and slightly damaged the attacking submarine with depth charges.

On 21 November 1944, Urakaze was torpedoed and sunk with all hands by USS Sealion (SS-315), 65 miles (120 km) north-northwest of Keelung, Formosa (26°09′N 121°23′E). The torpedo that sank her was one out of three that sank her and the battleship Kongō. All survivors from Tanikaze also went down with the ship.

Appearance

Urakaze, wears a white and blue button-up serafuku with a yellow scarf (similar to Yukikaze) and rolled up sleeves on top of a Kagerou-class standard pleated skirt with simple white socks under everything. On her back is her rigging which she wears sideways. Unlike most of the Kagerou-class, she wears elbow gloves. She wields two pistol-like guns, one resembles the standard 12.7 cm twin gun, the other resembles an Anti-Air gun.

She has medium-length blue hair with twin buns topped with a sailor hat and blue eyes.

Similarly to Hamakaze, she is noted to have unusually large breasts for her ship class.

Personality

She is a cheerful girl that constantly reminds the Admiral not to make reckless decisions. She speaks in Hiroshima-ben. Fitting as she describes herself as "Born in Osaka but Kure is where I belong."
