A Princess is an individual with a special power that can protect the stars. Princesses work alongside a Samurai and a Key Holder, forming a Trinity that protects the galaxy. The Princess duty is to find the Locker Balls.[1]

Individuals who train to be Princesses start out with the rank of Apprentice Princess . The be initiated as an Apprentice Princess, a girl must find a Locker Ball of Fate ( (うん) (めい) のロッカーボール Unmei no Rokkā Bōru?) to use for a series of initiation rites using their Sixth Sense.[2] The Samurai created from their first Locker Ball found will become that girl's Samurai of Fate ( (うん) (めい) (さむらい) Unmei no Samurai?).[3]After their Samurai of Fate is born, a girl officially becomes a Princess. Though they only have one Samurai of Fate, Princesses may be responsible for the birth of other Samurai too.[4] Also, a Princess' Samurai of Fate does not have to be a Bushi, and they can be born without undergoing the normal ritual.[5]

All Princesses serving in a castle are submitted to a Head Princess . One responsibility of a Head Princess is to select Bushi who complete training to undergo the ritual to become a Samurai. A Bushi chosen by her is said to have 99% of surviving the ritual seppuku and activating a Locker Ball.[6]


Abilities and Powers Edit

Princess' Sixth Sense ( (ひめ) (ろっ) (かん) Hime no Rokkan?) - Princesses have an unique power that can sense and locate Locker Balls and Samurai by their Gravitational Pull.[7]

Power of Fate ( (うん) (めい) (ちから) ?) - When a Princess is near their Samurai of Fate, her sensory powers are amplified.

Princess' Prayer ( (ひめ) (いの) Hime no Inori?) - Princess can empower her Samurai of Fate. By praying, she can boost her Samurai's speed and strength. Such prayers also purify a Samurai Soul, which multiplies its cutting power several times over.[8]

It is for these gifts that many planets fight among themselves to acquire more Princesses and increase their number of Samurai. In battle, a common tactic is to kill a Princess as quickly as possible, as their death will cut their Samurai's power in half.[9] As such, Samurai diligently guard their Princesses against danger.
