“I sacrifice myself to the will of our dance!”
—The tagline for Homura's Crimson Squad.
'Homura's Crimson Squad' (焔紅蓮隊, Homura Gurentai) is a shinobi group consisting of former members from Hebijō Academy. Led by Homura, who became a renegade when she killed Dōgen, they live in a cave to hide from their pursuers. It first appears in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.
After the Hebijo's Castle siege by Hanzo, and Orochi first form's defeat, the five former Hebijō Elites chose to abandon Hebijo's because of the catastrophe they failed to prevent, rather than suiciding as in the organization's rules, making them renegades and traitors to Hebijo's. Six months later after the events of Senran Kagura Burst, they continue to pay for that decision. Together on the run, they live as renegades, eking out a menial living by day, keeping one eye open every night, watching for other shinobis like Miyabi to not find them.
