Suzu, also known as Princess Suzu (鈴姫, Suzuhime), is the main heroine of Samurai Shodown Sen. She was voted as one of the best arcade characters in Arcadia's Arcade Game of the Year 2008 Awards.
She is voiced by Kae Araki.
She is the princess of a foreign country, orphaned when her parents' ship was raided ten years ago. She washed ashore the beaches of Japan and was adopted by a daimyo who resides in Amori. One day, ten years later, she found Takechiyo along the shoreline to her home and nursed him back to health. After hearing that the ship he stowawayed on collided with a ship bearing a particular crest, Suzuhime runs away from home two months before the game begins in order to pursue a certain man.
It is revealed in her story that it was Golba who killed her parents in the raid during her childhood. He reasons that he did it as a loyal member of the Lesphia kingdom as he wished to protect the country's military strength, something her father's reign of peace wouldn't allow. Her sword is a country treasure and he needs it to claim ownership of Lesphia. After she defeats Golba, she briefly wonders if she should return to her home country or her home in Japan. After Takechiyo joins her, Suzuhime decides to stay by his side as his support, hoping that he finds an answer to his life of swordplay.
Suzu is a strong-willed girl who is attracted to adventure. Since she has spent most of her life being pampered, she treasures her new found independence in the world.
Suzu is a relatively balanced character who mainly uses her sword to fight. She swings her weapon in wide arcs and uses her body's momentum to spin it around. She is powerful enough to carry and slam people who get stuck on the tip of her blade. However, the weight of her weapon drags her speed down as players will usually need to wait for her to pick it up before commencing their attack. To compensate for her weapon's drawback, Suzuhime can also use her flute or her kicks to smack people at a close range.
