She began learning how to slay demons at 14 years old. Kotori decided to become a demon slayer after her best friend was devoured by one. Her family told her not to, but she wanted to help make the world a better place. Kotori traveled around until she heard of the pillars. She was bold and went straight up to Obanai to learn.
After 2 years of hard training, she was finally granted her blade. She was first on missions with Giyu, but eventually it was just her and her messenger bird, Taiyaki.
Kotori is brave. She has never been anything but bold and brave, which caused her to be in trouble a lot as a child, but it helps a lot now. She can be very stubborn, as she has very strong beliefs. Kotori is usually formal and a bit cold towards others, but when others are upset or in trouble she will show kindness towards them.
She carries grief on her journey, with her yellow hair ribbon actually being her, now deceased, best friend's. She turns her nose in disgust at demons, and believes they have caused nothing but harm to the world.
Her favorite color is the greenish blue color of her haori jacket.
Her favorite food is Taiyaki pastries, which she named her messenger bird after.
She loves braiding her hair, because her mother used to braid her hair.
I do not own this character! It is a canon character of the series she has a relationship with!
He reluctantly taught her how to do serpent breathing/snake breathing. He was always very cold and strict. Obanai never saw the point in teaching Kotori, but after she completing her training, he was secretly very proud.
