Hotaru is the daughter of a family of martial artists, but is not very fond of violence. She never wants to hurt others, which is the probable reason why her father taught her the lighter side of Chinese kenpo; the Juu-kei style, which suits her easygoing personality. However, after her mother's death, both her father and her older brother were missing from her home. She enters the "King of Fighters: Maximum Mayhem" tournament based on rumors that her brother is there. In her ending, she finds Gato and claims that he's her older brother. She slaps him when he denies even knowing her. He then leaves her there, and Hotaru silently prays for her older brother to come back to her. She is generally very polite and charming, and is usually accompanied by her pet sable, Itokatsu. Her stage takes is a belfry, where a flock of birds removes her cloak.

Hotaru is a convincingly cute Kung-fu gal, and she assists in rounding out the cast of Garou. She's a simple and honest design for a pure martial artist... and she has a nice variety of fluid & cool attacks... not to mention a mildly-perverted super move! (You Garou fans know which one I'm talking about).
