Background

Hiroko walked through the park lost in thought. A smile played across her youthful face. She was sixteen and she was in love. Her face colored a little when she thought that thought. Masao-kun sat only a seat away from her in class, and Hiroko could watch him all day, or until Tanaka-Sensei would notice her inattention to his lessons. Then there would be an embarrassing tongue-lashing. Mr. Tanaka expected his student to pay strict attention to his lesions. Hiroko didn’t mind; she was in love, Masao-kun was so dreamy. Hiroko had to do a little twirl as she walked causing her school uniform skirt to furl.

The spring sun felt great on her skin as Hiroko walked swinging her book bag at her side. Hiroko had to grab her skirt and pull it down when a rogue breeze blew it up. Several people, all of them men and boys, stopped to stare at her. Hiroko blushed crimson, before rushing away.

Not paying much attention where she rushed, Hiroko didn’t see the old man before she crashed into him. Hiroko fell backwards onto her rump, and her book bag went sailing off into the grass.

“Ow, ow,” moaned Hiroko. It hurt to fall down on ones rump. As she looked up at the man she ran into, she could see that he was staring at her, a little trickle of blood leaked from his nose. Hiroko let out a scream. The pervert was looking up her skirt. Hiroko let out a shriek in embarrassment. Almost of its own volition her leg came up catching the old man between his legs. His look of pleasure quickly changed to a look of total agony. However, Hiroko didn’t wait to watch. Like a bullet train she fled the park. Her book bag was totally forgotten.

Discontentedly Hiroko returned home, where she removed her shoes, and shouted to the house that she was back. Her mother poked her head out of the kitchen, and she smiled at Hiroko.

“Honey,” said her mother, “dinner will be ready soon, so go get cleaned up. We’re going to have a guest tonight. I’m met the most interesting monk in the market today, and I’ve invited him to dine with us. So best manners.”

Hiroko could only groan. Her mother met people all the time, but why did she did she have to invite them to dinner.

Back in her room, Hiroko quickly changed out of her uniform for more casual clothes. She took a long look at her skirt. Fortunately there were no rips or grass stains on it. Thank Buddha for small miracles. Before going down to the dinning room, Hiroko paused to kiss the photo of her beloved Masao-kun. One of these days, Hiroko swore, she’d really kiss Masao-kun, one of these days.

The smells from the dinning room greeted Hiroko as she came down the stair. Hamburger steak. Yes! That was one of her favorites. Expectantly Hiroko strode into the dinning room, only to freeze. The man sitting at the table was the pervert who looked up her skirt at the park. Instantly the man stood, and they both pointed simultaneously at one another and shouted,

“You!”

“You!” shouted Hiroko again, “You looked up my skirt!”

“You!” shouted the man; “You kicked me in the crotch!”

Hiroko's mother looked up at both of them smiling, a little confused.

“Surely you must be mistaken Hiroko,” said her mother, “This is Niwashi, a monk of the Ryu-Dai Monastery.”

Hiroko put a hand behind her head rubbing her hair looking totally embarrassed, tittering a little. Niwashi in turn bobbed his head. He too was embarrassed.

“Sit, sit,” commanded Hiroko’s mother, “the food will get cold.”

Dinner continued, awkwardly. Hiroko couldn’t bring herself to talk much with Niwashi, but the monk made up her lack of conversation by chattering about almost everything.

“Ah yes,” said the monk, “terrible, just terrible.”

“What is terrible?” asked Hiroko.

“Oh,” said Niwashi, who looked like he was startled by Hiroko’s question.

“The monsters in streets. Surely you have seen them in the streets.”

Hiroko had in fact seen the monsters. The media was calling them Chaos Minions, and supposedly they were the servants of a super-villain calling himself Mister Chaos. Of course no one had ever seen this Mister Chaos.

“Yes, my friend Otsu-chan and I were riding the Honshu Express when a bunch of the monsters attacked the train. Fortunately Ichiro and Koroogi both showed up shortly after, and defeated the monsters easily.”

Ichiro and Koroogi were both famous super-heroes; part of the well known group Senshudan One. Otsu had a crush on Koroogi, but Hiroko just couldn’t understand the attraction to a cricket. However, Hiroko really envied them. She too wished she could fight crime like them.

“Hiroko,” said her mother, “you never told me this.”

“It’s okay mother,” said Hiroko a strange gleam in her eye, “we weren’t hurt, but it was a little gross when the Chaos Minions disintegrated after Senshudan One defeated them.”

“Senshudan One,” said Niwashi, “They are a most excellent group. Japan is truly fortunate to have defenders such as they.”

After that dinner was finished, Hiroko was about to go back upstairs to finish her homework, and then give Otsu a call before bed. She called good night to Niwashi and her mother, but before she could make her escape, Niwashi spoke her.

“Ikoma-Chan,” called Niwashi, and Hiroko paused at the foot of the stairs.

“If you have time this weekend, could you come to the Ryu-Dai Monastery. I am the gardener there and I would like to show you our gardens. It would give this old monk pleasure.”

“Okay,” said Hiroko as she rushed up the stairs. She had a ton of homework to get done.

Hiroko had never been to a monastery before. The Ryu-Dai Monastery was a place of contemplation of the eight-fold path, and the place was huge; it covered at least two city blocks. Like a lot of the religious institutions, the monastery was ancient as well. The monastery was built at the beginning of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Hiroko paused at the gateway to throw a few coins in the box, rang the bells to wake the gods, clapped her hands and said a little prayer, about Masao-kun, naturally.

The gardens of the monastery spread wide gently over the side of the building. Actually there were three gardens. One was the vegetable garden, which helped feed the, monks, and there was a small Zen garden with its raked gravel and stones. The abbot himself tended that one. However, it was the flower garden that interested Hiroko the most. Flowers of all kinds of profusion grew in that garden, from gardenias to roses, and lording over this kingdom of flower was Niwashi the Gardener. Niwashi was tending to his roses when Hiroko arrived. A huge sunbonnet hides most of Niwashi, but when he turned a big smile was plastered on his face. Hiroko dimpled at this.

“Ah Ikoma-chan, welcome, welcome to the gardens of the Ryu-Dai,” said an ecstatic Niwashi.

“Come, come closer. Yes, yes. Do you see this rose? Surely it matches the color of your hair exactly.”

With a snip, Niwashi cut the rose and held it out to Hiroko.

“Wow,” said Hiroko, “It’s beautiful.”

However, just as Hiroko was about to take the rose, three men leaped over the wall landing with a boom. Flowers nearby seemed to wilt in their presence. Hiroko was about to let out a scream, because these men were not men at all. They were Chaos Minions. This was also when Hiroko felt the prick of the roses thorns.

Hiroko looked down at her hand, but instead of blood coming from her hand rose light bled out. The light surrounded Hiroko and it brightened, as she was lifted off of the ground. Words sprang to her mind, and came out in a yell.

“Kishi Rose TRANS-FORM-ATION!”

The rose light grew brighter still, and in a blink of an eye all her clothes vanished. Hiroko was shocked to say the least. However, the transformation continued. Starting from her feet a pair of scarlet boots grew, and then at her waist a skirt of black was formed. Finally a pair of scarlet gloves grew down from her finger tips to her elbows. The light faded, and Hiroko gently returned to the ground. However, not only had she transformed, but so had the rose. No longer was the rose a rose, but a thorn studded whip.

Hiroko felt great power course through and she looked real cute as well.

“Wow,” she breathed, and twirled the rose whip over her head before striking a pose in front of the Chaos Minions.

The Chaos Minions stared at Hiroko as if they were stunned or confused.

“I won’t forgive you for this!” she yelled as she charged.

The fight didn’t last long after that.

And just as if it were a dream, Hiroko returned to her normal self.

Niwashi came up to stand next to Hiroko.

“So it starts my dear,” said Niwashi, “Soon others will grow from the seeds we’ve planted today. Soon it won’t just be Senshudan One safeguarding Japan, but the Knight Flowers. Chaos hasn’t got a chance.”

Hiroko could only stare at the flower in her hand, and remember how it felt to be Kishi Rose.

Personality

Hiroko is probably the most up beat of all of the Kishi Hanabana. Nothing keeps this cheerful teenager down, expect possibly for teenage angst. Her greatest fear is that Masao-kun doesn’t love her, especially because Masao-kun, just seems so oblivious to her. Boys! Otherwise, Hiroko is a caring and sweet person. She even polite to the super-villains she fights, unless they really upset or try to harm Masao-kun. Then she'll never forgive them. Often times, Hiroko is mistaken for an air head.

However, Hiroko has a serious crush on Masao-kun. Now only if he’d only return her feeling to her. Of course, Hioko always gets ultra-shy when around Masao-kun. Often times she can’t say anything at all, and only blush. Of course there are times when loving Masao-kun, drives Hiroko to distraction, and it’s these times when she overreacts. These are the times when Hiroko really embarrasses herself. Oddly enough, Masao-kun, rarely seems to notice.

One of Hiroko’s most endearing traits is her loyalty to her friends. There isn’t nothing that Hiroko won’t do for them, including sacrificing herself. Of course her friends being teenagers themselves, they've learned to make us of Hiroko's loyalty. The only times her loyalty has been really tested is when it comes Masao-kun. Hiroko would rather spend time with him than her friends, but when forced to choose between the two, tries her best to include Masao-kun with her friends. However, there are times when even that gets out of her control.

Quote

"Kishi Rose TRANS-FORM-ATION!"

Powers

Hiroko has been given a magical rose by Niwashi the Gardener. When she calls out the magical words, “Kishi Bara TRANS-FORM-ATION!” she becomes Kishi Rose, or the Knight Rose. Her street clothes vanish and are replaced by her knight costume. This transformation does take a second or two to finish, and oddly enough most villains wait for Hiroko to finish her transformation before engaging her in a fight.

Once transformed, Hiroko gains a lot more strength, stamina, and speed, but not really to a super-human level. More on the level of a well trained martial artist. Also transforming with Hiroko is her rose, which transforms into a long thorn studded whip. Hiroko uses the rose whip in a number of different ways. Offensively the thorns can tear through almost any armor, or defensively it can create a shield of sorts that protects Hiroko from most attacks. Of course, Hiroko can also use the whip to tangle up a foe. Recently Hiroko has even learned how to use the rose whip to take a focus away from a foe. However, she’s not always successful with that attack.

Hiroko has learned some martial arts from Niwashi. Mostly, it’s defensive in nature, but Hiroko can deliver a painful kick. Also the transformation grants Hiroko the ability to run and jump further than a girl her age.

Appearance

Hiroko is a beautiful sixteen year old girl. She always has a sunny smile, and there seems always to be a twinkle in her eye. Hiroko isn’t very tall; barely over five feet in height. She has light brown eyes, and dark red hair color, almost the color of a rose. Hiroko likes to wear a lot of different clothes, rarely wearing the same outfit twice in a row. However, Hiroko always seems to be carrying a rose around with her.

It’s when Hiroko transforms into Kishi Rose that she truly shines. Her street clothes vanish, and are quickly replaced by a costume that is vaguely like a Japanese school uniform or Seifuku. Her boots are scarlet in color and run up to her knees. Likewise her gloves (not a normal part of Japanese school uniform), run up to her elbows. The rest of her costume consists in a short pleated black skirt, a white blouse with a sailor style attached collar, and with a rose on the breast pocket. Tied around her neck is a scarlet neckerchief.

Also her rose, transforms into a long brown whip that is studded with silver thorns.

Physically, Hiroko doesn’t change at all. The only change that occurs is that her eye color changes from brown to a red. Oddly enough, Masao-kun, who has been around both Hiroko and Kishi Rose, seem oblivious to the similarities between the two.
