The gunner of the 1121st platoon.
Private Kureha is a young orphaned soldier who joined the military for unknown reasons, likely to help her become independent. She historically looks up to Rio and does her best to emulate her. She is, aside from Rio, the most serious soldier and attempts to take their job and work seriously, she is constantly aware of the nature of her work and does not attempt to window dress it as much as the others. Despite that she is known to have more childish and girly moments. (probably because she is both very young and a girl) She has a big crush on Major Claus who she thinks is the hero "The Desert Wolf Claus" when in actuality they only share the same name and rank.
Although not a veteran her life has been damaged by the war. she is a war orphan, both her parents having been medics in the previous war. After her death she finally decides to try to become a war medic like them in the interest of saving lives instead of takeing them.
