Kurara Hananokoji first appeared in Power Instinct 2 and has been a recurring character in the series since. She was renamed "Clara" in Power Instinct: Matrimelee. Kurara was a normal girl, until one day she met a wizard that lives in her city. She then began to visit the wizard everyday to talk and help him with his home duties. The wizard, grateful for Kurara's help and company, gave her a golden wand that allows its owner to use special magic. Popura Hananokoji is Kurara's daughter, appearing in Groove On Fight.

With an independent and extravagant personality, Kurara is a bit ambitious and capricious at times and has sudden mood changes, but that is quite normal for a 13 years old girl that is uneasy about the future. She likes money, enjoys traveling around the world, and highly dislikes poverty. Her favorite animals are pigs and her ideal man would be  a handsome man with lots of money that would listen everything she wants to say. Kurara's dream is to become a beautiful bride, but first she has to find her ideal man. She participates in the Gouketsuji tournament to earn the money to travel around the world to find the prince of her dreams.

FUN FACTS: Her design was created by Range Murata, and in her first two in-game appearances she was voiced by seiyuu Kotono Mitsuishi, best known for her role as Usagi Tsukino of Sailor Moon. Clara has become one of the more recognizable characters in the series, having gained enough popularity to star in her own spin-off game, Purikura Daisakusen as Kurara Apricot, and made a guest appearance as a hidden character in a console port of another Atlus fighting game, Heaven's Gate.
