Maidservant to Akira and Hikaru Yamato. Mated to Shintaro. Born and bred on the Japanese colony world of Asahikawa which was quarantined due to a gene-engineered symbiote that converts all mammals to herms. Kiku was born a herm though, but served as a maidservant to hir lords, the Yamatos - original colonists who were converted by the symbiotes. Kiku and Shintaro accompany the Yamatos on a diplomatic mission for which the starship Phoenix is acting as courier to Earth. Kiku is killed in an accident, but it is eventually discovered that Kiku was actually murdered to prevent the secret of the Yamatos' plot to infect Earth with the herm plague from being revealed. Hir grief-stricken mate requests to stay aboard Phoenix, supported by Anastasiya with whom shi feels great kinship. Kiku had already impregnated Shintaro before their mission started though, so Shintaro eventually gives birth to a child whom shi names Kiku after hir beloved lost mate.
