Kisa Sohma, aged 12–13, is the tiger of the Chinese zodiac. She is depicted as a cute but very shy and withdrawn girl. In an author's note, Natsuki Takaya described her as "in competition to be the first or second most beautiful character"and also described her as a "girly-girl." When she starts middle school, her classmates harass and ostracize her due to her naturally tawny hair and golden eyes, an effect of her curse. Because she feels ashamed of being bullied, she does not tell her worried mother what is happening and stops speaking; when this distresses her mother even further, she runs away and is found by Hatsuharu.Tohru Honda, who understands Kisa's distress because she was once bullied herself, helps Kisa to come out of her shell, and Kisa becomes very attached to her, calling her "onee-chan" ("big sister") in both the manga and Japanese language anime, while in the English dubbed anime she calls her "Sissy". She sometimes gets mad at Hiro because of his treatment of Tohru. Kisa likes Hiro and is hurt when he withdraws from her to protect her from Akito,much like Hatsuharu is hurt by Rin.As the series progresses, Kisa is shown struggling with her shyness, and feels it is a major accomplishment to greet Kyo directly, instead of relying on Hiro to speak for her. Kisa likes omelets and but not dry foods, and is a fan of a fictional anime series Mogeta. She is called Sat-chan, using just the last syllable of her given name, by Shigure. Takaya derived her name from the second month, kisaragior "changing clothes month," which is the month of the tiger, of the traditional Japanese calendar.
