Kyouko Kurahashi (倉橋 京子 Kurahashi Kyouko?) is the granddaughter of Miyo Kurahashi and heiress to the Kurahashi Clan. She is in the same class as Harutora and had a crush on Natsume, until learning of the fact that she was female and it was actually Harutora she had made a promise with.
Kyouko is a girl with long, brown, wavy hair and purple eyes. Her hair is tied up in a bun on her left side of her head to present roses. There are purple pins underneath her bun representing leaves of roses. The rest of her wavy hair comes out from the two buns. She also has two wavy bangs that end up to her chest. Kyouko also has a very curvaceous figure, which Suzuka is jealous of. She is usually seen with her ordinary school outfit which consists orange, white, black, with a turquoise skirt underneath.
Initially she came off as hostile to Harutora because Natsume, who she was fixated on, held her attention and was noted for having a one-sided rivalry with Natsume. After things improve she becomes more supportive and helpful, but once she learns that Natsume was female she became offended because of how long they lied to her. While things between them improved, to where she admits that Natsume was her best friend, they are separated when she is killed and then brought back to life.
The Kurahashi being a branch family of Tsuchimikado Family in the past, they were invited to the main family estate. Kyouko, a child back then, met a Tsuchimikado boy (Harutora) and mistook him for Natsume. He promised her that he would find her missing ribbon. Since then she had a liking for the boy she thought to be Natsume and remembered the promise. However, when she enrolled in Onmyo Academy years later, she found that Natsume (real one) did not remember her. This led to her becoming something of a rival to her, until later on.
After Natsume's gender is revealed she recalls that Harutora is that same person and reveals this to Natsume. However, she wants to be on equal ground with Natsume and told her to confess to Harutora about being Hokuto's controller.
After the time skip, she still attends the academy but is under careful watch by a shikigami due to aiding in Harutora's efforts at reviving Natsume.
