I am one of the Demon King's Four Shining Stars Valkyrie Homura, the Sword of Edens.

—Homura Kogetsu, Chapter 92

Homura Kōgetsu (ホムラ・コウゲツ Homura Kōgetsu), also known as "Valkyrie Homura" (ヴァルキリー ホムラ Varukirī Homura) in her master's honor,[2] is a swordswoman from the Planet Oedo. She is a member of the Crew of Edens. She is also the student of the late Valkyrie Yuna,[3] formerly one of the Four Shining Stars, eventually becoming her successor as the new "Sword of Edens".[4]


Homura is a slim young woman with dark-brown eyes, long, navy blue hair, and a beauty mark located under her left eye. Her hair reaches to her waist and part of it is tied in a high ponytail with a yellow ribbon. She is very well-endowed and has a curvaceous figure.

Homura's outfit consists of a sleeveless, yellow-colored kimono with red-colored flower-like designs, loose sleeves around her forearms, and knee-length black leggings.[5]


Homura's appearance

Homura's outfit while in Digitalis is a shoulder less, light-colored kimono with semi-circular flower designs, black square-shaped trimmings on the end of the sleeves, and a flower-like clip on the right side of her head.[6]

While on planet Mildian, Homura changes into a medium-length kimono that resembles her primary outfit but comes with a pair of red-colored bunny ears, a yamato design, a bold low necktie, a white fluffy tail, fishnet stockings and has a pair of zori sandals.[7]

After becoming Valkyrie's successor, Homura now wears a kimono similar to her initial attire, but now has red cloud-based designs with a light-colored rose on her hip, a navy-blue hakama with white trimming on the bottoms, and a pair of knee-length black boots.[8]


Homura appears to be a calm individual who desires to help anyone without any reason. She has a tendency to voice her thoughts out aloud, even when she intends to keep them a secret. She also has an interest in fighting the Demon King and has a love for fighting strong opponents.[9]

She is capable of anger and aggression as she showed both upon seeing a replica of her master and one of the Four Shining Stars', Valkyrie Yuna in Xiaomei's arena within the Temple of Knowledge.



Homura was born in the planet Oedo where she lived with her mother until the day she was abandoned by her. She was eventually taken in by one of the Four Shining Stars' Valkyrie Yuna and became her disciple, after Valkyrie rescued her from some thugs who intended to take her to Guilst and sell her. Valkyrie trained Homura in the art of swordmanship using the Ether Gear Soul Blade. Valkyrie also told her about Edens Zero and its captain, the Demon King. At some point, Valkyrie disappeared, leading Homura to go on a journey to find her.

Guilst arcEdit

When Shiki decides to head to Edens Zero, Homura is seen in the Guild, acknowledging the name. She then requests Weisz to bring her aboard the ship in exchange for her help in rescuing the captured B-cubers. Later, when Edens Zero is about to leave to Planet Guilst, Homura and Weisz met up with Shiki, Pino and Witch and subsequently introduced herself before informing them that she possesses Ether Gear.

Once Edens Zero arrives at Planet Guilst, Homura, Shiki and Weisz head to the streets to find the mercenary squad Rogue Out which apparently Jinn is affiliated with. The party reaches a church which appears to be the squad's headquarters and encounters its leader, Sister.

When one of Rogue Out's soldiers launches a heat-seeking missle at Shiki, she bisects it with an energy blade.

Digitalis arcEdit

When Homura entered Digitalis through virtual reality, she arrived in a jail cell. Amira was the culprit who captured her and impersonated her so she can complete her mission. Homura states that she spent one day to escape and another to gather information only to discover Amira impersonating her.[10]

She arrives in time to save Shiki and the NPCs of Digitalis from Jamilov's forces and chases after Amira who tries to escape upon realizing her plan has failed and reveals herself to Homura, accidentally revealing her identity due to some of the former's personality still being inside of her and attempts to silence Homura by shooting her, only for the swordswoman to deflect it back and forcing her to log out, she then returns to the others with the troll monster before logging out with the others.

During Spider's attack on Edens Zero, Homura helps the others reach out to the heartbroken Hermit by explaining how Valkyrie Yuna, an android, was her teacher and mocks the hacker along with the others when Hermit activates the fireworks system, lying about it being a weapon.
