Nakoruru is one of the three Napanese ronin, Samurai with no master, involved in the up-coming Shogun Budokai. She is
nineteen which is the youngest age allowed in the Budokai, as it is very possible for a knockout to instead become a kill.
Nakoruru has been practicing for this in small time, more closely regulated, matches and tournaments honing her skills.
She gained a reputation for being incredibly fast and agile and unbelievably strong for a girl, especialy one so young.
She is actualy believed to be stronger than Haohmaru or Ukyo, however she is not as proficent with her Sais, as they with
their swords. She is better than either hand to hand though and is well known throughout the galaxy for her martial arts
