Kimi

Japanese - Daughter of Tenko. She fell in love with Sawara, a pupil of her father, but he left to further his education under the painter Myokei. When Kimi heard that Sawara was to marry Myokei's daughter, she ran away. Sawara could not find her when he returned to her father's home so he married Kiku. When Kimi later met Sawara and learned of his marriage to Kiku, she stabbed herself to death and the painting that Sawara made of her body came alive to reproach him. Occasionally called Kimi.
