Kureha is one of the villains in Kaze no Stigma. Older daughter of the Tsuwabuki family, who are skilled Chijutsushi (地術師, Earth Technique Practitioner). During her father's absence due to 'illness', she becomes the head of the Tsuwabuki family. Zenon, the behemoth of Mt. Fuji, stripped her powers as a Chijutsushi. Like Kazuma, she was ostracized for her lack of power by her family. She is later killed by Zenon in a fit of rage.
She killed her own father to become head of the family. Being manipulated by Zenon, she wanted to have his dark power by preforming the Grand Ceremony, which was exactly what Zenon wanted. When Zenon escaped, he took away her dark power. She was then able to preform Earth Magic. Despite having no training what-so-ever, she is able to make multiple stone spikes from the ground, but evenually fails to defeat Zenon and gets killed.
She is cold-hearted and arrogant, wanting to obtain power so she can rule the family, since she was treated poorly because she was not a Chijutsushi.
