Arisa Kuhouin is one of the main supporting characters of Guilty Crown. She was the student body president of the school and a member of the Kuhouin Group, which is now allied with the Undertakers.
She is very fastidious and virtuous by nature. She seems to take pride in being the student body president and helps her fellow students, punishing anyone who is disrespectful and breaking the rules. She has apparently taken an interest in Shu as well. She has feelings for Gai.
She is a beautiful girl with long blonde hair and reddish-brown eyes. Arisa usually wears her school uniform.
PlotShe is first seen slapping a boy in the face for mentioning rumors that Shu was a criminal. She then helps Shu get out of a crowd of people who are asking him questions about what the GHQ are like and when he thanks her, she says it's just natural that she'll do that (as her responsibilty as council president).
She is seen taking a bath while remembering what her grandfather said about their family's plans earlier. Later, she notices Shu at a party on a ship (which were only meant for former GHQ members or allies) and meets Gai for the first time. Gai begins to swoon Arisa with his charm (even earning him a blush) and they eventually seperate. She goes unto the deck, only to be followed closelyby Gai. He tells her to close her eyes and open them again on the count of three. When she does this, Shu appears before her and pulls out her Void. After, she wakes up in a room with Gai and he pats her on the head, telling her she "sucked at making people spoil her." She does not provide much more significance in the plot until much later on. In the ensuing fight in Episode 17, she rebels against Shu's dybolical rule and looks on coldly as Gai cuts off Shu's arm and takes the Power Of Kings. She kills her own grandfather by accident when he was willing to clear his name by killing her with his own hands. She is willing to give Gai her void to stop the U.N forces which shows that her feelings for Gai have increased.
Arisa's Void is call the Coward's Shield, a small ball-like object, which opens up and acts as a very strong shield. It was able to destroy a countless number of missiles, blasting them into smithereens
The void gets its name from the fact that like it's purpose, protects the Arisa's weak self. This is confirmed as Gai states "The cowards shield that armors the weak self inside," as he holds Arisa whose unconscious after Shu draws out her void to protect the ship from incoming dragoon missiles.
