Sen, often referred to by her full title of Princess Sen, is a character in Hakuōki. She is a high-ranking female demon from the village of Yase.

Personality Edit

Sen is cheery, enthusiastic, and helpful. She treats Kimigiku more like a friend or a sister than a subordinate, and almost from the moment she meets Chizuru, she is openly friendly and sympathetic to her situation. As a demon princess, Sen also has a strong sense of responsibility, and prioritizes the good of her subjects and species above herself. This is most prominent when (in Heisuke's Stories route) she agrees to bear Kazama's child in Chizuru's stead, despite her distaste for him.

Despite having a strong sense of propriety, Sen is also bold and unafraid to speak her mind, especially when displeased. While she is passionate about certain issues such as the Shinsengumi's repeated failures to protect Chizuru and keep their Fury Corps under control, her emotions do not usually interfere with her ability to calmly and eloquently explain her perspective. When genuinely angered, she displays a haughty or even intimidating side, and is capable of talking down even to Kazama. She can also be persistent to the point of ruthlessness, threatening to turn all the demons in Japan against Kazama if he tries to abduct Chizuru in her presence (in Kazama's Stories route).

Background Edit

Sen is a fictional character. Her ancestor was the legendary Suzuka Gozen, who famously fell in love with the human Sakanoue Tamamuro and followed him to the village of Yase, near Kyoto. Thus, while she is the scion of a distinguished lineage, she is not pureblooded.

In the games Edit

Sen is an ally.

Chapter 2 Edit

Sen is first encountered when Chizuru defends her from some ronin, with the eventual assistance of Saito. Sen insists she has the situation under control, but thanks Chizuru anyway, and reveals that she has guessed her true gender.

Trivia Edit

  • There is some discrepancy between the games and anime as to whether or not Sen is a pureblooded demon. In the anime, her purity of blood is implied to be on par with that of Kazama and Chizuru; however, in the games, Sen is stated to be the direct descendant of a human and a demon.
    • In the localization, Sen claims that Suzuka Gozen and her human lover were her grandparents. However, the Suzuka Gozen and Sakanoue Tamamuro of legend allegedly lived sometime between the 800s and early 1200s. Furthermore, the demons of Yase are stated to have started serving the imperial court starting with Emperor Go-Daigo at the beginning of the second Genkō Era, which began in 1331. Therefore, is safe to assume that Sen's exact relation to Suzuka Gozen was mistranslated, and that centuries' worth of generations separate her from her ancestors.
    • In Kyoto Winds and Edo Blossoms, despite having a confirmed human ancestor, Sen is still referred to multiple times as being pureblooded. This may mean that a single human ancestor is considered negligible.
