Portrayal

Cistus (シスタス?) is a Kurumi Tokisaki clone found in the Third Region Binah. After sacrificing herself to help Kurumi, she was then recreated by Kurumi using the Eighth Bullet <Het>.

Summary[]

After being captured by the White Queen, Kurumi encounters another Kurumi Tokisaki clone in the dungeons of the Third Region Binah. The clone then begs Kurumi to help save the Neighboring World and also the boy from the other world.

Appearance[]

When she first appears, Citsus' red and black Astral Dress Elohim has been torn into rags, causing it to resemble a cloak that covers her injured body. However, after admiring the cistus flowers in a garden found in the White Queen's castle, a miracle occurs and her Astral Dress transforms into a yellow and black version of Kurumi's Elohim.

Personality[]

Due to the torture she suffered at the hands of the White Queen, Cistus was initially envious of the adventures that the other Kurumi had with Hibiki. In order to obtain her revenge, she was also deceptive, luring Kurumi into a false sense of security by playing the role of a mentor to her. But in the end, she still proves herself to be self-sacrificing, conceding that the other Kurumi was superior to herself at the end of their duel.

Uniquely, amongst all the Kurumi Tokisaki clones, she is the only one to strive to establish a new identity for herself, taking up the name Cistus after her favorite flower in order to separate herself from the concept of Kurumi Tokisaki. Even her Astral Dress reflects a change in personal tastes, as she prefers white and yellow instead of black and red like the other Kurumi Tokisaki clones.

History[]

Background[]

After falling into the Neighboring World, Cistus was captured and tortured by the White Queen. During this process, both her memories of the boy from the other world and Zafkiel were stolen from her. During this time period, she managed to talk to Carte, who was still in hiding after losing to the White Queen. Within a few conversations, she quickly managed to win over Carte's admiration. Due to the intense torture suffered at the hands of the White Queen, Cistus knew that the only way to get her revenge was to deceive the next Kurumi Tokisaki clone that would be captured. To that end, Cistus began scheming a method to obtain both her freedom and vengeance.

Powers and Abilities[]

Zafkiel[]

Angel: Zafkiel (刻々帝ザフキエル, Kokkokutei?. lit. "Time Emperor")

Weapon: Clock, Flintlock Pistol & Musket

Astral Dress: Elohim (神威霊装・三番エロヒム, Shin'i Reisō: Sanban?. lit. "Spirit Dress of God's Authority, Number 3")

Due to her weakened state and stolen Zafkiel, Cistus initially was unable to fight and had to rely on Hibiki to carry her around. However, after rejuvenating herself with the stored time from the White Queen's vault, Cistus regains her combat prowess. By borrowing Kurumi's rifle, she is also able to use Zafkiel's special bullets.

After being reborn through Kurumi's usage of the Eighth Bullet Het, Cistus gains her own copy of Zafkiel. However, like most Kurumi clones, Cistus is never seen again using Zafkiel's full powers of time manipulation. Instead, she only uses normal bullets fired from her rifle and pistol.

Quotes[]

  • (Last thoughts to herself) “──Aah. Everything is beautiful. Really, it’s so beautiful.” [1]

Trivia[]

  • In the Victorian language of flowers, Cistus symbolizes imminent death, reflecting on her fleeting nature as a Kurumi Tokisaki clone.
