Taiyuu Suzuran (??鈴蘭) , also known as The Courtesan Of The Heavens, and Yoshiwara Paradise's (吉原桃源郷) former highest ranking courtesan.
Being the highest ranking courtesan of Yoshiwara, Suzuran excelled in singing and dancing and no one in Yoshiwara can rival her in any of the arts. During her young days in Yoshiwara, Tokugawa Sada Sada would regularly visit her. Later, she was used by Sada Sada as a tool to lure higher Bafuku officials to vulnerable positions for assassination.
Suzuran would cry everyday in her cell, likely from the atrocities she had brought upon herself but Maizou comes to her cell to wipe her tears. Eventually, Sada Sada grew tired of Suzuran and asked Maizou to kill her but instead, Maizou and Suzuran made a promise to escape together until the full moon comes. Suzuran continued to wait for several years but Maizou never returned.
AppearanceIn her younger days in Yoshiwara, her beauty has attracted all men and no one in Yoshiwara can rival her. Years later, she became short, has wrinkles and keeps her eyes closed.
Suzuran even in her old age would continue to work as a courtesan, holding onto the promise she made with Rotten Maizou years ago. Such a promise would normally not be taken seriously in Yoshiwara due to its nature as an underground brothel, but owing to the serious situation at hand, Suzuran held onto the promise for all of her life.
