Maori Kasuga (春日 舞織, Kasuga Maori) is a playable character in the Arcana Heart series. She is the second eldest of the four Kasuga sisters(Tsuzune, Koito and Kouta) who specialize in exorcism. Traditional and motherly, she is good friends with Heart Aino and Saki Tsuzura.
Her Arcana is Ohtsuchi, the Arcana of Earth.
Bio[edit | edit source]
For the longest of times the Kasuga Family has been performing blessings, exorcisms, purification, and other rituals. As the second eldest out of four siblings, Maori is in charge of directing her sisters during their rituals. With her sisters by her side, the four can unleash a magical arrow that never fails to repel demons.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Maori has the appearance of a typical shrine maiden. She has fair skin and big brown eyes with thick lashes and long, straightened black hair that resembles an angular hime cut. Her forelocks are held by gold ribbon. She has a large bust and shapely figure.
She wears a normal Shrine Maiden outfit, composed of a white and red dress with white toe socks and red strapped sandals.
She is shown to wear the Misono Academy uniform with a maroon and white vest, as seen in her bonus CG and Heart's ending CG in the first game.
Personality[edit | edit source]
A joyfully busy girl, when she isn't working or lending a hand to those who are troubled, she's watching over her little sisters or keeping an eye on Heart. She enjoys those little moments when she gets a chance to relax, such as attending school, which she thinks is actually pretty fun.
She is friendly and well-liked due to her calming nature, and she is very motherly towards others. Her hard-working personality makes her very reliable in times of need. She rarely ever loses her temper, but while she is relaxed in how she treats people like Heart, she is very strict when it comes to upholding tradition. She is prideful of them and will always bravely defend her beliefs.
Although she has a curvy frame, she dislikes any sort of improper attention being brought upon it and is likely to scold those who act dirty around her.
