"I ain't cut out for this bodyguarding business."
|Title||Guardian of Freedom|
|Real Name||Susanne Stennefo|
|Date of Birth||n/a|
Kusumi (Susanne) is Syn's cousin, and a member (former member later in the series) of the Valkyrie. Pressured from working under the Valkyrie, she decided to take a break from her responsibilities after hearing from her father that her cousin, Syn (whom she had never met), would soon arrive in Terminus for the first time.
The King eventually sent his royal guards to search for Acier, and they assumed that Kusumi had kidnapped the princess, as they had been seen together too often in town. Kusumi was removed from the Valkyrie, arrested and beaten upon refusing to reveal Acier's location as she wanted to defend the princess's freedom. Kusumi is rescued by Syn and Cloud, and escapes Terminus with Acier. They both go missing from the eyes of the public, surviving on their own on the outside.
She is very much like Syn, a bit a of a tomboy, and impatient when it comes to getting something she wants. She is also known to act rashly during complicated situations, leading her into much more trouble than she already has to deal with.
She also shows a carefree attitude, openly accepting any form of affection from anyone. This changes as she grows closer to Acier.
