Korishima is, in many ways, the ideal of what it is to be a samurai. She is loyal beyond all else, honorable, generous, and rather pleasant to all she meets. She often keeps a smile at the ready, and is a well-respected leader of Samurai. Before the Soul of Shiba appeared before her, she was more a scholar than a soldier, and is famed more for her works of art than her battlefield prowess. Still, she is a bushi, and her skill is not wisely discounted.
