Amagiri Kyuju, known as Kyuju Amagiri in the localization, is a character in Hakuōki. He is a demon currently in the service of the Satsuma domain, which comes to oppose the Shinsengumi.

Personality Edit

Amagiri is reserved, polite, and traditional, using the formal pronoun watashi. He prefers to settle arguments peacefully, and carries no weapons because to do otherwise "invites conflict". While he believes that demons are superior to humans, he states that it is not only their power and skill in battle which marks them as such. More than anything, he values strength of heart and the way of the warrior.

Though Amagiri is disgusted with the existence of furies, he takes individual circumstances into account before passing judgment, and does not universally intend to slaughter them.

Background Edit

Amagiri Kyuju, known as Amagiri Kyuujyu in the original Japanese, is a fictional character. He is the leader of a demon clan which owes the Satsuma domain a debt of honor for protecting them. Though he is the head of his clan, the Amagiri family is an offshoot of the Kazama clan, meaning that he is not only Kazama's vassal but also a distant relative.

In Hakuōki: Stories of the Shinsengumi Edit

Amagiri's exact role varies between routes, but he can be considered either an antagonist or an ally at various points.

Chapter 1 Edit

Depending on the player's choices, Amagiri can be encountered as early as the Shinsengumi raid on the Ikeda Inn. Amagiri is responsible for splitting Heisuke's head-guard with his fist, inflicting a wound serious enough to prevent him from getting involved in the Kinmon Incident. 

He may also be encountered at Hamaguri Gate during the Kinmon Incident.

Chapter 2 Edit

Amagiri's first non-choice-based appearance is made alongside Shiranui and Kazama.

Chapter 3 Edit

During his rematch with Heisuke, Amagiri inflicts a wound that would have proven fatal had Heisuke not chosen to become a fury.

Hijikata's route Edit

Okita's route Edit

Saito's route Edit

As Saito's primary demonic rival, Amagiri plays the most prominent post-split role in Saito's route. However, rather than being a main antagonist, the last time he directly opposes Saito is during his Chapter 4.

Heisuke's route Edit

Despite having played a prominent role along Heisuke's path in early chapters, Amagiri does not appear for the rest of his route, although he is mentioned as helping Kazama's cause offscreen.

Harada's route Edit

Kazama's route Edit

At Sen's request, Amagiri accompanies Kazama and Chizuru during their travels.
