Back Story(top)*WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILERS*
Kasumi was the second child to the leader of the Mugen Tenshin Clan, Shiden, sister to Hayate, and half-sister to Ayane. At a young age Kasumi and Ayane would play togteher as children not knowing that they were related. Until one day when the village found the two playing together and dragged Kasumi away from the "cursed child," Ayane. From that day Ayane would come to resent Kasumi.
Kasumi would continue growing up playing and training alongside her brother, Hayate. At around 15 years old, Raidou returned to the village to aquire the Torn Blast Sky technique. After easily dispatchiung Ayane and Kasumi, Hayate would attempt to use the techinque on Raidou only to have revealed the secret to him and thus backfiring. As a result Hayate is severly injured and put into a coma. Raidou leaves and Kasumi secretly leaves the village to exact her vengence on him for what happened to Hayate.
Kasumi would track Raidou to the 1st DOA tournament where she fought and killed him avenging her brother. However after completely this task, her clan learns of her disappearence and labels her a runaway shinobi. So now Kasumi must live on the run as her clan will continously send their agents to dispatch her. During the battle with Raidou, Kasumi is injured enough to where DOATEC manages to capture her for their perfect soldier program.
Kasumi manages to escape and enters the 2nd DOA tournament to find and kill her clone. She eventually meets up with her clone and defeats her. Along the way in the tournament, Kasumi runs into Ryu Hayabusa, who reveals his promised Hayate that no harm will come to her. Kasumi later on runs into Ayane who was sent by the clan to kill her. Kasumi managed to defeat Ayane and then proceeds to her next match that turns out to be her brother Hayate. Unfortunately Hayate is suffering from amnesia, and called himself Ein. He proceeds to battle with Kasumi, the outcome of the battle helps in restoring his memory.
After leaving the 2nd tournament, Kasumi continues to live on the run. However her desire to see Hayate once again leads to her enter the 3rd DOA tournament. Hayate was in the tournament mainly to hunt down and kill Omega, a super soldier created by DOATEC that was once a member of their clan. Kasumi does eventually meet up with Hayate but he tells Kasumi that they never meet and spares her life. Kasumi leaves the tournament and evades pursuit by a group of assassins from her former clan.
Come time around the 4th DOA tournament, Kasumik learns that her former clan planned to attack the DOATEC organization at their Tri Tower Headquarters. She enters the tournament once more to find Hayate and try to convince him to stop. He does meet up with Hayate but is interrupted by Ayane allowing Hayate to return to his mission. Kasumi follows them to the Tri Towers and is conronted by Helena Douglas. Helena reveals that a clone of Kasumi, Alpha 152, was created will be unleashed soon. Kasumi leaves Helena to destroy Alpha 152. After a breif fight that was interrupt by the attack on the Triu Towers, Alpha 152 escapes and Kasumi rejoins Ayane and Hayate.
Towards the end of the assault, the Tri Towers became engulfed in flames and Kasumi watched Helena walk into the crunbling tower. Kasumi attempt to persue and rescue her but Ayane stood in her way. Afterwards the towers feel and Kasumi returned to the life of a runaway shinobi.
Character Link(top)Everyone that Kasumi once knew or loved are now her enemies. Kasumi and Hayte were very close growing up. They played Games together and trained side by side into their mid teenage years. However it was that one fateful day when Raidou returned to the village that changed everything. After Kasumi left the village and was deemed a Runaway Shinobi, Hayate had to put his feelings aside and do whats right as the leader of the Mugen Tenshin clan.
Ayane who used to her close friend as a child, grew up hating Kasumi after being treated with disdain. Ayane would later take all her rage from her early childhood and focus it on Kasumi. However due to Kasumi's skill, Ayane has yet to even succeed her mission of killing Kasumi.
Probably the closet thing to a friend Kasumi had comes from Ryu Hayabusa. Ryu promised Hayate before the events of the 2nd tournament that he keep Kasumi safe from harm. They meet during the tournament where Ryu revelaed his promise to her. And throughout the tournament Ryu did as he promised until he accomplished his mission of killing the evil rogue Tengu.
Raido was the only person Kasumi has ever felt pure hatred towards. Swaering her venegence upon him for what happened Hayate is what drove her to leaving the village and the clan. Eventually she caught up with him in the 1st DOA tournament and killed him.
Gameplay(top)As Kasumi a player can expect to get a plethora of counter-blows in due to her speed and mixups. She is one of the owners of the fastest jab and mid punch speeds in the game. She is a rushdown goddess; It is hard to keep a competent Kasumi player out of your face because she has ways to close in on her opponent and keep the pressure going. She is at home in close range because she can begin to work her jabs, kicks and mid punches on you, inevitably landing that counter-blow she needs to clip a good chunk of health from her opponent by utilizing her string mix-ups, free cancel mix-ups and string delays. On the defensive end she's no slouch either. She has parries and advanced parries that can put her in a good situation to deal damage. Despite this a Kasumi player has to be wary of what they are doing because she is highly unsafe. Every assault should be planned out because if you just press buttons for the sake of pressing buttons will be taking throw punishment all day. That is a fact.
