Kasumi is Todoh's daughter. After her father's defeat and disappearance she went looking for Ryo Sakazaki to get revenge. However, her mother Shizuka doesn't exactly approve of this... A neat character trait is that she doesn't know a word English; everything she says in AOF3 she has to look up in a dictionary. However, it seems this was lost in the American translation as she doesn't seem to have a problem.

Judging by her attire, a person knowledgeable in martial arts would assume she uses Aikido as her fighting style. Aikido is an awesome and beautiful martial art, but unfortunately, Kasumi portrays it rather averagely in her fighting game appearances... if she's even trying to portray it in the first place. At best, her moves are sub-par and she doesn't have a whole-lot of personality. To be honest, as a KOF character... she pretty much bores me to tears (compared to other characters).

It's pretty cool how she took the place of Todo in AOF3, and she's become decent comic relief for the later games she has appeared in, but in my opinion she's a very "sleeper" character. I think it's because her 2D KOF sprite is pretty bad, as in... pretty ugly. I think her KOF sprite is actually one of the worst I've ever seen in a professional game, but of course her AOF3 sprite was much much better. Thus, she was portrayed a hell of a lot better in Art of Fighting. In the KOF series she really just comes off as a "filler" character. While Kasumi arguably has a cool, traditional appearance, similar characters like Aoi, Asuka, and even Hokuto actually do the "look" and the martial art of Aikido a lot more justice.
