—Kinue's final words to Tsumugu

Kinue Kinagase ( (きな) 長瀬 (がせ) (きぬ) () Kinagase Kinue?) is the late older sister of Tsumugu Kinagase. She was a researcher who died while testing an incomplete Kamui.


Kinue was a researcher who worked along Isshin Matoi, Aikurō Mikisugi and her brother, Tsumugu Kinagase, in their study of Life Fibers. She believed there existed a strong bond between people and clothing. As such, she volunteered to be the test subject to equip a prototype version of a Kamui. Unfortunately, the Kamui overwhelmed her, tearing her body apart. Isshin and Aikurō had to hold Tsumugu back as they watched in horror. As Tsumugu held her, she told him to continue the experiments.[1]
