Kaname Kugatachi (陸達 要)First appearance: Battle 70
Type: Katsujin Ken
Martial Arts: Joujutsu
Kugatachi Kaname, commonly called Freya, was the former Third Fist of Ragnarok and a practitioner of Kugatachi Style Joujutsu. She joined Ragnarok in order to learn techniques from Ogata, but never met him. Freya has her own personal attack team called The Valkyries and believes that in order for women to be as strong as men, they have to resort to using weapons.
Freya is a fairly tall dark-skinned woman with blue-eyes and short messy brown hair. She is curvaceous and well-endowed with a well-toned frame and is usually seen in a blue spandex bodysuit and orange leather jacket. She also has a thin scar running across her left cheek.
Freya is a calm and stoic person, who rarely shows emotion, though unlike Loki, she clearly cares for her underlings. Despite strongly believing in the rules of Ragnarok, she is not completely heartless and actually follow the principles of the Katsujin Ken, likely ingrained into her by her master. Freya also refuses to continue fighting after Kisara breaks her staff, believing that once her staff is broken, it is already her defeat, and acknowledges Kisara for her strength.
While a very strong fighter and almost disregarding her gender, she has the fear of mice which she displays with very girlish reactions, jumping into Thor's arms to escape the mouse, much to his enjoyment. She also seems to be a tad naive, performing the seductive pose that Kensei asked her to perform in order to learn about a technique that Kenichi just used in a fight (though maybe she is just willing to go to such lengths in order to win).
More recently, she shows a more friendly, big-sister like side in front of Kisara. Freya also seems to have a crush on Ukita as noted by Miu, but seems to be shy about it. Recently, while she still cares for Ukita very much, she seems to have taken a liking to Takeda since the two were on a double date together and his master, James Shiba believes they are a couple. She, like Shigure, doesn't seem to have much modesty, as shown when she had no problem sleeping topless in the hotel she was staying in with Kisara and says she always sleeps topless.
As one the original three Fists of Ragnarok, Freya is a highly skilled fighter. She has been trained by her grandfather since a young age to inherit their family's Kugatachi Style and is skilled enough to train others into capable fighters.
