She is described as a girl with long black hair in an asymmetrical bob cut that falls past her shoulders on one side and shorter than the other (giving it an uneven appearance), with what looks like silver eyes but are, from certain angles, revealed to be red instead

Ken Amada & Xiong Zishi
Rukia & Renji Abarai
Itsuki Minami & Kazuo Tsuchiya.
Narcissus Amore – a woman who loves herself so much she cannot bear to see others love her, and is the first opponent in Melty Blood Act Cadenza. She can be seen as an anti-heroine or villainess due to how cruel she is to those who reject her advances, which includes killing them. Her design was based on Narcissus from Greek mythology; Chizuru Aihara’s original idea for the character was that of a male photographer with the same name instead. Riesbyfe Stridberg – a woman who is known for being the “Queen of Toreador” in Melty Blood Re-ACT, and employs a variety of techniques using her rapier. She has two incarnations: Riesbyfe Stridberg (Type A) and Riesbyfe Stridberg (Type B).
Kagura Mutsuki – Hanzo’s right hand man during Shinguji’s rebellion against Araya Souren. He does not have much an identifiable personality but he seems to be very loyal towards his lord, Hanzo, as seen in Act Cadenza where he made several attempts at killing Hilda when she was under mind control from one of Nero Chaos’ minions; this shows that Kagura will subordinate himself to the wishes of his lord.
Kurumi Tokisaki – is the main antagonist in Date A Live and has been referred to as “The World’s Most Powerful Spirit”. She is an extremely powerful being who can create objects out of her own mana, but she must have a human vessel around for them to be brought into reality. Kurumi possesses two types of Noble Phantasms: one that creates dolls called Marionettes which are extensions of herself, created from clothes or parts found on their person; and another type that takes other people’s souls away after killing them through various means (such as by kissing).
Kagura Mutsuki is a two-tailed fox yōkai who was once the right hand man of Tenma Taro. He has no form, but can take on the appearance of any person he desires (even Miroku). His true name and rank are unknown as they were never given to anyone by him before his death in one timeline. In Melty Blood ReACT he is officially revealed to be Riesbyfe Stridberg’s servant Pheles after being killed off for good with her Command Spell during their battle in UMBRA izm-, which leads into the events of Continuum Shift; where she uses an alternate version of him that appears.
