Abilities[edit | edit source]
Nemuri is the heir to and master of the Kayama School of Martial Arts, making her an expert in conflict resolution. She specializes in deduction and planning, as well as predicting others' decisions due to her extensive social and communication abilities, including a superior ability to read others nonverbally, as well as control her own nonverbal cues. Nemuri is seen as almost precognitive due to her abilities. She is also almost always able to rally people to her side no matter what's going on by exuding oxytocin and pheromones to increase her personal allure, persuasiveness. Therefore, her intelligence—which, on many occasions, has been noted to be almost godlike—is her greatest power.
Besides that, Nemuri has experience when it comes to melee combat, utilizing seductive and suggestive "stances", which, coupled with her already distractingly attractive appearance, results in a strike-grapple-and-counter style that robs her male opponents of any and all concentration. She is also skilled with the tessen, being able to deflect swords and counterattack as well as better spread her pheromones.
