Like her brother, Kaoru is quiet and prefers to keep to herself; instead letting her servant Tanba handle formal-work. Kaoru also has a kind side, but due to her inexperience with the team, this takes time getting through her facade of coldness. It took the team time to warm up to her, most notably Genta; who felt no loyalty to her or Tanba and blamed her for replacing Takeru as Head. Soon, she revealed her kind side and she left the team on good terms.
Upon encountering the Gokaigers years later, she seems to have slightly loosened her demeanor; but not to a significant extent.
The Shinkengers can utilize the generational power of Mojikara, which allows the wielder to form any object immediately available to the imagination by drawing it's Kanji into the air using the ShodoPhone or any painting device. Kaoru carries within her the Fire Mojikara.
