Hokuto was raised as a member of the Bushinryu ninja clan. Her family
believed in the honor of Bushin, and taught it to Hokuto and her two
siblings, Kairi and Nanase.
As Hokuto trained, she noticed that Kairi was beginning to act strangely,
and when he turned 17 he dissapeared. Hokuto was not told what had happened
to her older brother until she had become a fully trained Bushin ninja. Her
godfather told her that Kairi had been practicing evil techniques, and the
clan elders feared that he had left home to follow the path of the "Ashura."
The elders assigned her to find Kairi and stop him before he completely
followed the path of evil. Thus, Hokuto set out to embark on the "Bushinryu
tests" and find her brother.
After long months of searching, Hokuto finally found her brother.
Much to her dismay, he had already been consumed by the Ashura. Hokuto
fought Kairi in the hopes of returning him to his senses, but was defeated
by her vastly powerful brother. As she lay at Kairi's feet, Ashura
appeared, and she discovered that the Ashura was really the renegade
Shotokan warrior Akuma. As he had done with
Kairi, Akuma consumed Hokuto and made her his evil pupil. Now compeltely
under Akuma's control, Kairi and Hokuto's only hope was their younger sister,
