Shigeru Kurohana (黒華茂, "Flourishing Black Flower") was a male Sōzōshin and the father of Kaoru Kurohana, the man who is known to history as the dreaded Zetsubō Usuguraiboshi.

Appearance

Shigeru was a tall mature man of rather "rough" appearance. He had a medium complexion. He had long, straight jet black hair he usually wore in a ponytail and with a thick fringe that partially stuck up above his forehead. His face had a rectangular shape. With thick eyebrows and a relatively large snub nose he tended to wear permanent stubble. The colour of his eyes was imperial red.

His usual attire consisted of fairly standard if somewhat tight-fitting white-and-black kimono complete with waraji and black tabi.

Personality

Stalwart and strict, Shigeru was a dutiful diplomat. He devoted most of his adult life to the maintenance of the balance of souls. His determination to secure peace and order prompted him to gradually, if reluctantly, abandon his non-conflicting ways and resort to violence whenever that was necessary to fulfil his goals. Still, in spite of his excellent training he was not fond of combat. Furthermore, he was prone to feel remorse even after disposing of particularly hostile renegades. Whilst capable of fighting fiercely, he always felt uneasy during battles.

Shigeru loved his wife, Asuka and their baby, Kaoru, greatly. That love was a major source of motivation for him to continue his increasingly futile attempts to protect the balance of souls. When the time of the Sōzōshin revolt came he hesitated to abandon his family. Even then, he thought of their safety and implored his wife to take their child and hide as far away from the Royal Palace as possible, since he suspected the revolution might be a failure and thus their lives would be endangered. During his final battle he fought to ensure their safe departure and protect other civilians that could be targeted by the loyalist forces.
