Power Instinct

Oume Goketsuji (豪血寺 お梅, Gouketsuji Oume) is a character from the Power Instinct series, debuting as the boss in the first game and at the time was very similar to Otane. However, in later sequels she would be further differentiated from her sister. She is usually depicted as the mascot of the series. The romanization of her name changed from "Oume" to "Ume" and had a recolored design in Matrimelee. Oume was voiced by Keiko Ijuu in the first three games of the series. Oume ranked 25 in Gamest Mook's Top 30 best female character tying with Arabian Moon from the game Perfect Soldiers.

About Oume Edit

She is superhuman. In any case, she is scary. To master her mysterious attacks she confined herself to the mountains. Moreover, she has an eerie and unearthly presence about her and it is rumored that she can practically turn her opponents to stone just by gazing into their eyes....

Ever since she was a child, Oume had a great combative spirit. She started training at a very early age since then, showing incredible ability and strength. At the age of 10 years, she was able to defeat expert martial artists fighting with them, even at the same time.

Oume despised any sign of weaknesses, so when Oshima, mother of Oume, set her an arranged marriage with Kanji Kokuin, and realized that Kanji's strength was inferior to her own, she constantly treated him poorly and humiliated him. After a while of this abuse, Kanji could not stand it any further, and divorced Oume two weeks after their wedding.

At the age of 18, Oume participates for first time in the Goketsuji Tournament, defeating her mother in the finals, and became the head of the Goketsuji clan, being undefeated for many years.

Oume has a fixation for young men. She feels especially attracted to Reiji and Ryuto in particular. Her mother Oshima also seems to share this trait.

Oume and Otane's RelationEdit

Oume's hate for her younger sister begun since the day they born, this was because, when they were still in their mother's womb, Otane kicked Oume out.

When they were kids, Oume just couldn't stand Otane's sweet, tender personality, so she always did anything possible to make her sister suffer. Her first serious attempt to dispose of Otane was at the age of 6 years old. When Otane got home after her usual walk in the forest, Oume waited until Otane fell asleep, then she put her in a box and threw it into the ocean, but seven years late Otane returned alive.

This just caused Oume's hatred to increase further, and her treatment towards Otane became out more aggressive and cruel, causing Otane to run away from home.
