A woman of the late Warring States period whose name was recorded in the documents of Netsumura, Shinshu. She is regarded as a female ninja (kunoichi) that served the Takeda Clan of the Kai Province and a descendant of Mochizuki Izumo-no-Kami, but it is unsure whether she was actually a ninja.
In a sense, her existence—it may be a sarcastic answer to the proposition called a “renowned ninja”, which is a contradiction for a ninja that should make a principle to keep one's activities covert.
In this work, Chiyome is an existence endowed with grotesque powers, having inherited a curse cast by a god from her ancestor Kouga Saburou. At the same time that she works as a shinobi for the sake of her lord... she dedicates prayers as a single miko of a serpent in order to appease the aramitama of a god.
« Curse, this blood of mine. Curse, this sin of mine. No matter how much time passes, there is something here that cannot be washed away. »
Warring States/Widow/Young Girl/Kunoichi/Miko. Apparently, a few Servants are worried about her in regards to “having too many attributes”... She has demonstrated great sorrow over being unable to cleanse herself or her clan of her curse. When Berserker of Saṃghāta Hell used her own connection to Orochi to forcibly activate it, she was quite horrified.
Even while under the torture of her inherited curse, she carries out her duties as a ninja with loyalty.
If her lord told her to die she would do so on the spot.
She appears as a calm and collected kunoichi who acts as her master's eyes, ears and blade, but behind that she hides a part of herself that fears, shivers and cries due to the serpent's curse.
She carries out her duties in a calm and serious way without any jokes, but...
She actually really enjoys pleasant entertainment, and during her off-time she frequently shows many different expressions.
During her time as Assassin of Paraiso, she is belligerent towards Fuuma Kotarou and derides him as an inferior ninja.
Motivations/Actitude towards her Master
Loyalty. Very docile.
She recognizes her Master as her lord, and will obey orders wholeheartedly.
Subspecies Singularity III: Shimosa
She and her fellow Swordmasters first encounter Ritsuka’s party as they tried to cut through a bamboo forest to reach Onui and Tasuke’s hermitage. She seemingly ambushes Miyamoto Musashi, though what Musashi thwarted was Chiyome’s afterimage. Soon afterwards, Chiyome and her fellows watch Houzouin Inshun fight Yagyuu Munenori alone to let the others escape. This is followed by Ashiya Douman infusing Inshun with the Curse of Annihilation to become the final Swordmaster: Lancer of Purgatorio.
Later Chiyome delivers a letter to Toke Castle threatening to assassinate Kiyohime, killing several guards. Afterwards, she reports her success to Amakusa Shirou at Katori Shrine. She suspects security around Kiyohime has increased by now, and rumors should be already circulating around town. Amakusa Shirou orders her to assassinate Kiyohime once panic spreads amongst the populace. Afterwards, the populace will be instilled utterly with fear, thus their souls will be better sacrifices. Amakusa Shirou leaves after telling Chiyome she needs only to stay true to the serpent within. Shuten-douji tries to tempt her to kill everyone now. Chiyome tells her to be quiet, only to immediately realize that she responded out loud to an illusion. The real Shuten is merely standing next to her, smiling. Merely looking at her causes the curse inside Chiyome to surface. She understands Shuten can’t do anything about the illusions inflicted by her curse. She then declares she’ll kill more than just Kiyohime before the night is over.
That night she and her monsters attack Toke Castle. She fights the guards in the courtyard until Ritsuka and Fuuma Kotarou arrive. She declares that news of Kiyohime’s death will plummet Shimosa’s people into despair, thus making Shimosa easier to destroy. Then, knowing Kiyohime’s infatuation with them, she decides to kill Ritsuka to devastate the princess. To demonstrate how easy it’ll be kill them, she kills twenty guards with her snakes. After slaying her monsters, Kotarou asks her if she isn’t going against her wishes as a Heroic Spirit by acting as a Swordmaster. She replies that Swordmasters only exist to kill. Kotarou asks if committing such atrocities eats away at her soul. Chiyome asks him how his soul feels when he kills other Heroic Spirits to grant his Master’s wish in a Holy Grail War. Kotarou, however, explains he asked as a fellow ninja. Chiyome calls him an immature whelp, but Kotarou declares he’s stronger than her. Chiyome is enraged at his demand for surrender, and fights him. After killing her once, Kotarou tells her that a soulless ninja is nothing more than a hollow blade. By forgetting that, she has proved her immaturity. Chiyome revives and decides to stop holding back. Musashi suddenly throws Myoujingiri Muramasa at her, only for it to miss and be caught by Kotarou. He then blocks Chiyome’s kunai that she threw at Kiyohime, who followed Musashi outside. Musashi slashes at Chiyome, only for it to be an illusion while the real one had already escaped.
Chiyome reprimands herself for underestimating Kotarou and failing to kill Kiyohime. However, she achieved her true objective of leaving designated patterns all throughout the castle. She prepares to return to Katori Shrine to restore her magical energy when Shuten suddenly appears. Shuten proceeds to connect Chiyome’s heart and brain to the power of Yamata-no-Orochi that resides within herself to the latter’s protest.
Chiyome returns to the castle and summons Orochi to kill everyone. Musashi and Kotarou slay it when Kiyohime suddenly attacks Ritsuka with her fire. Kotarou manages to protect them with his own body. Kiyohime confesses she unintentionally destroyed a snake nest long ago. Despite her regrets, the snakes still come for her. Orochi then revives despite being reduced to ash by Kotarou’s Immortal Chaos Brigade due to Chiyome’s Saigyou revival technique. Chiyome tells her to kill the group to gain the snakes’ forgiveness, after which she’ll kill her. Kotarou realizes the kunai that Chiyome threw was a feint to put Kiyohime under a spell. After the resurrected Orochi is slain, Kiyohime realizes she’ll never earn the snakes’ forgiveness. She wishes she never went to Mt. Ibuki, even though it was actually her ancestor who did. Tainted by his cursed blood, Kiyohime wants to kill the group to earn the gods’ forgiveness. However, Ritsuka and Musashi both realize her words are actually Chiyome’s, prompting Kiyohime to faint. Chiyome laments there is nothing neither she nor anyone can do about her curse; Not even becoming a Heroic Spirit or a Swordmaster freed her of it. She then brings herself and Musashi to the bloody battlefield for their duel. She loses and dies content that she’ s finally at peace.
