I will find the truth!

Tsuruhime pre-battle

Tsuruhime is a young priestess with not much knowledge of the outside world, having been secluded in her homeland her whole life. Many refer to her as the Oracle for her ability to look into the future, and some generals visit her during their routes to make sure they're utilizing the right battle tactics for the situation. Her story begins when she is rescued during a naval battle by Kotaro Fuma; immediately afterward, she becomes infatuated with him, referring to him as her "Twilight Ninja" and searching for him throughout her travels. Tsuruhime is shown to be quite gullible when she's tricked into joining the Western Army by Yoshitsugu Otani through false kindness; Magoichi Saica gives the naive Oracle many blatant hints before she finally realizes that she's being manipulated. Tsuruhime has a straightforward battle style, consisting of shooting enemies with arrows from a distance. She has a small rivalry with Motochika Chosokabe, as both specialize in naval warfare.
