—Kei to Rei Kurosawa
Kei Amakura is one of the three protagonists in Fatal Frame III: The Tormented. Since he is a guy with good health, he can move heavy objects the other playable characters can't. Having researched the folklore of the Kuze Shrine, Kei is somewhat versed in the superstitions and rituals that went on inside its walls. However, involvement into the shrine's past and its curse has caused Kei to dream of the Manor of Sleep himself.
When Rei Kurosawa is first introduced to Kei, he informs her that he worked under Junsei Takamine along with Mafuyu Hinasaki and Yuu Asou, however, at one point he eventually turned his interests to researching folklore himself.
Fatal Frame III: The TormentedEdit
Kei's ultimate fate is determined by which ending is achieved at the end of Fatal Frame III. If the first ending is attained, Kei never returns from his last venture into the Manor of Sleep. Kei was trapped in the Chamber of Thorns shortly after entering, and he was unable to stop Reika's attack. The next morning, a black soot stain can be seen where he was sleeping on Rei's couch, affirming Kei's demise from the Tattooed Curse.
If the player has beaten the game previously (the requirements can be achieved on any difficulty, as long as the game has been cleared at least once) and has obtained both pieces of the Echostone Earring, Kei's fate significantly changes. Rather than disappearing and leaving behind the soot stain, Kei is left physically unharmed but in a deep sleep, much like Miku. During the ending credits, a photo is shown depicting Kei with his niece, Mio, who has evidently been cured of the curse as well. Another photo is shown with Kei introducing Mio to Rei and Miku in their home.
It is unknown which ending is considered canon, but Makoto Shibata (director and co-creator of the Fatal Frame series) stated in an interview and his twitter that the game staff considered the second ending (the one where he awakes from the curse and Mio appears and is introduced to Miku and Rei) the canon ending, although this is not confirmed.
Kei has styled black hair with bangs that is parted to the right, he has black colored eyes. Kei also has pale skin.
He wears a simple necklace around his neck. His outfit consists of an opened black polo shirt, under it is another shirt colored lavender/indigo which has the top buttons undone, he wears a pair of black wristbands in each wrist.
For his bottom, Kei is wearing stone wash colored jeans and a belt, Kei wears black shoes as footwear.
To save Kei and Mio from the curse, the player must achieve the second ending. To get this ending, the player must obtain the two earrings:
- Kei has only two unlockable costumes, and both are long summer yukatas. Unlike Rei and Miku, Kei is a man strong enough to move heavy objects blocking doors and paths preventing access in the manor including a bookshelf, a chest, and a cabinet.
- According to Makoto, Kei has survived. This can be seen in the photograph ending, where he introduces Mio Amakura to Rei Kurosawa and Miku Hinasaki.
- Like his friend Mafuyu, Kei also bears a striking resemblance to one of the spirits' loved one.
- While Kei is sleeping on Rei's couch in her living room, he will utter one of two sentences:
- "Mio... Mayu.... No... Don't go..."
- "Yuu...! Mafuyu...! But why..? Please don't leave me behind..."
