Dawn of Kagura: Hatsuka's Story

On her way home after completing a quest to exorcise a terrible youkai, Hatsuka Otowa receives a phone call from Mizumori Shrine—the Shinto shrine her family has run for generations. It's her father, who wants her to set out on a new quest immediately. Having barely returned from her previous one, Hatsuka complains. Why does she have to go, and not her older sister, Keika? But in the end she strikes a deal with her dad and agrees. On arriving at the shrine that sent out the SOS, a young priest greets Hatsuka and informs her that youkai have started to appear in the neighborhood, along with some very unseasonable snowfall. Sensing a mysterious force in the nearby woods, Hatsuka is convinced that it's the source of all the local problems and confidently sets off to complete her quest..

Hatsuka Otowa (CV:Konami Onami)

The second daughter born into the Mizumori Shrine.She is an energetic girl who is training to become a priestess.

Dawn of Kagura: Natsu's Story

Natsu is alone at her shrine when the chief of a nearby village approaches her, seeking her assistance. He informs her that youkai are running rampant near the village and requests that she help vanquish them.

That being said, Natsu is still not much of a talker and seldom shows how she truly feels in front of people she’s not familiar with.
She is very kind deep down.

Dawn of Kagura: Keika's Story

When Keika receives a request to vanquish youkai, her younger sister, Hatsuka, is already out on another quest. Determined to set a good example for her less disciplined sibling, who often fails to show up to training, Keika visits the village Shinto priest who made the request. This priest tells her of a giant monkey youkai who has led other youkai on a rampage in and around his village. She confidently accepts the request alone, believing that her powers as a priestess would help overcome them....

Heroinev Keika Otowa (CV:Megumi Haruka)
Weapon:Long Sword

The first daughter to be born into the Mizumori Shrine, and Hatsuka’s older sister.
As a mild mannered and polite woman, she takes her priestess duties very seriously. Although, there are times when she’s a natural airhead.
She reacts to things honestly and frankly, but her lack of technological know-how is unbelievable at times.
