BIO:

Natsu was a member of the demon-fighting Fu-Ma clan. She's 17 years of age and is from Izumo, Japan. She grew up under the harsh glares of her fellow ninja, who feared the great demon Arahabaki that was sealed within her. Some even made attempts on her life. Thankfully, Natsu's master, Taki, protected and supported her. The young ninja came to love and respect her mentor; though she often disregarded the clan's rules, Natsu always obeyed Taki.

But now it had been several months since Taki left on a mission to the western continent, and Natsu was growing uneasy. "Master said her journey would last no longer than two weeks..." It was then that a girl named Leixia appeared at the gates of the Fu-Ma village. She explained she was on an "adventure" to uncover the secrets of a mysterious pendant. When Leixia learned of the demon dwelling within Natsu, not only did she show no fear, but she was actually envious of Natsu. Drawn to the girl's cheerful innocence, Natsu offered to serve as her bodyguard. After all, the trip might provide an opportunity to find her missing master as well... And so it was the two girls began their long journey west...

As Soul Calibur 5's replacement for Taki, Natsu definitely had some big shoes to fill. Her visual appearance is a bit loud in some ways... but she fits in with the cast. I really like her SC5 artwork, and I wish her in-game character model reflected her artwork a little better. For one, her pink fingernails are absent from the game all together (and I thought that was a pretty interesting part of her design). I thought her personality would be a bit more defined, and since they didn't include actual in-game stories for the new characters in SC5... she lost a lot of her potential.

Her moveset is a lot like Taki's, but she has a few unique animations at least. I do despise her ridiculous super move... it really doesn't fit into Soul Calibur, and would actually look more at home in the Toshinden series. lol.
