This was once my home. It was my world... then the soldiers came. They plundered and murdered... my family... all cut down... and now more have come, stolen from us, robbed our graves... I will hunt them. I will find them. I will take back what was stolen... And they will pay with their lives!
~ Hisako


Hisako is a naginata-wielding onryō and the sixteenth character introduced to killer instinct. Before she was a ghost, she was once the daughter of a samurai who protected the village she lived in. That was until her father and the rest of her family were killed by renegade soldiers. In her rage, she took her father's katana and be a to kill many of the raiders. Though she is killed, her actions inspire the other villagers to fight back and they successfully defeat the Raiders. In honor, for her bravery a shrine was placed over her grave as she is laid to eternal rest.

However, in the present day, an organization has disturbed her grave, and awakening her. She now ventures forth to seek vengeance on those who would disturb her rest.
