Featured ArticleMarika Kato and the daughter of Kenjo Kurihara, the captain of the Barbaroosa.
Unlike Marika, Chiaki was raised aware of her position as a pirate captain's daughter and next-in-line to inherit the Barbaroosa from her father Kenjo Kurihara. After Gonzaemon Kato's death, Chiaki transferred to Hakuoh Academy from a branch on the Sea of the Forest Star in order to observe the one who would inherit the Bentenmaru. During the events that followed, the two soon formed a friendship, one which has continued to grow since then, with Chiaki getting involved in further incidents together with Marika.
Chiaki is usually calm, cold and serious, though her composure can slip when she is frustrated, embarrassed, or enjoying a parfait. Marika and her friends are quite fond of Chiaki, and Chiaki is likewise fond of Marika though she doesn't usually admit it. She respects Marika and is frequently impressed by her, though she is also frequently exasperated by Marika's easy-going attitude and expressive fondness. Chiaki possesses many of the skills required of a pirate and is quite competent, though somewhat reluctant to go beyond the boundaries and rules.
