Kanna is very serious person and is easily angered. She admits that she hates kids and, like many of Hao's followers, she detests humanity and is deeply loyal to Asakura Hao.
She was born into a distinguished German family, the Bismarch main branch. She used to vomit ectoplasm since she was a baby, because she unconsciously used her body to canalize spirits. Due to this, she spent her whole childhood inside her castle. Her parents were very worried for her, so they started calling exorcists, clerics and priests from all over Europe. None of them was able to find a cure for Kanna, but she was happy just by being loved by her parents. However, she lost them due to a mysterious accident one day. Soon enough, the castle became full of lawyers and relatives. They took all of Kanna's money and inheritance, leaving her with nothing. That's when Asakura Hao appeared before her. He burned the lawyers and the whole castle to ashes, just as she wanted. Thanks to him, Kanna became a shaman and could finally see how the world outside the castle walls was like.
