Karen Jinryou (神領 可憐 Jinryō Karen ) is one of the main female characters of the series. Karen is a girl that comes from a Samurai family who always carries a real Katana hung at her waist.
Karen is a very beautiful teenage girl with a curvaceous body but well-endowed figure and fair skin with beautiful straight, long and silky black hair, and Kimito states she looks like Yamato Nadeshiko-- (a term used to describe a traditionally ideal Japanese woman) when he first sees her. She has blue-greyish eyes and she is usually seen with her school uniform.
Karen has developed her own sword style which she named after herself. Many of her peers seem to be intimidated by her, describing her as a "Scary person''. And when people first meet her, they feel a cold and aloof presence. When faced with something she likes, she will react by saying things such as "how pointless," though her true feelings are very obvious.
Karen is described to be lonely, but she is the type that can never help worrying about the mood of the people around her. She's a klutz who makes mistakes very often, but she got a gift for smoothing them very often out with laughs. She's passive when it comes to love, and she's a very shy girl sometimes.
Not so much known about Karen's background, but she lived with her younger sister Miyabi and comes from a Samurai family.
Karen is first seeing squatting in front of the flowerbed in a greenhouse. She then sees Kimito and attacks him with her sword whilst trying to save face in front of her classmates. After a string of misunderstandings and mishaps caused by her own wild sword attacks, she believes Kimito has defeated her and declares that she will become his student; however, she makes it clear that her actual desire is to surpass and kill him. However, this changes over the story, as she joins the Commoner club soon.
- Her fear of insects causes her to reflexively slash others nearby.
