Kasumi (霞) is a guest character in Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link. She is the original protagonist of the fighting game series known as Dead or Alive.
She was first appeared as a costume for Asuka before being announced to become an actual character in New Link.
Kasumi is a slender, physically-fit and petite young woman. She has copper brown eyes and long amber hair, which is commonly tied with wither her trademark yellow or blue ties. Her original blue kunoichi outfit is very well-known.
Kasumi is a more compassionate character than many of the other fighters. She is an honorable and kind spirit, and although a highly skilled kunoichi with deadly abilities, she does not enjoy or wish to fight. Many of the statements she makes in the game series before a round begins reflect her desire to avoid confrontation. Much of the reasoning behind this comes from the fact that in all appearances in the tournaments (with the exception of the first) her motive was not to fight or win, but to meet Hayate.
Kasumi is shown to be a "soft" character; she is not afraid to speak her mind, but as a soft person, she is emotional, honest, and always helps people. She is a highly intelligent, caring and gentle person. She is demonstrably family orientated and would like nothing more than to return home in peace. There were instances where she refused to show mercy, though, such as when she willingly goes to take revenge upon Raidou and subsequently kills him in both first and sixth game, and fighting her clone in the second game.
As of Dead or Alive 5, Kasumi grows more mature in both mental and traits.
