Kyoko Shinsegawa is a Japanese Tremere of the 10th generation, and has been placed on the Camarilla's Red List following the death of Genina. Her trophy is offered by the Toreador clan, who believe her to be one of them. Kyoko Shinsegawa has wild black hair, brown eyes, and sharp pointed nails. When she remembers to keep up appearances, she targets a fashionable woman, kills her, and takes her clothes. When she does not, however, her dress is ripped, muddy, and stained with blood. Kyoko has a ghoul named Esumi that is fully dedicated to her cause. Not much is known about Esumi, and no one knows if she was with Kyoko in San Francisco or arrived later.

- The former Scourge is now a considerable threat to the Camarilla. No one knows what the Anathema's true goals are or who she was before she came to the United States, and the Justicars are afraid that whatever answers lie in her mysterious past, the Alastors may not be able to uncover them before it is too late – for it is been confirmed that the former Scourge of San Francisco is slowly succumbing to her Beast and has been spotted in a frenzy on more than one occasion. Kyoko's violent nature and rising number of kills have turned her into a nightmarish creature sires warn their neonates about. Because of this, her reputation often generates just as many false leads as it does valuable clues to her past and her current whereabouts.
- One Toreador Alastor named Barnes has a theory why this Anathema has been hard to track down. He believes that Esumi or someone from Kyoko's past is hiding her in mortal populations where Kindred normally do not have a strong influence. He further theorizes that there may either be another supernatural faction that their connected to, or Esumi is not a run-of-the-mill ghoul and has access to secrets that she is using to help the Anathema. Not everyone is convinced that Barnes' theory is correct. However, his questions have forced people to take a second look at this Anathema and what she is truly capable of.
