Chinatsu Kurahana (倉花千夏 Kurahana Chinatsu) is an artist and character illustrator who created the character designs for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is known for her work as character designer on the Uta no Prince-sama series of otome visual novel titles and related media, as well as anime productions such as Samurai Flamenco and Aquarion EVOL.
Kurahana was in talks with Intelligent Systems prior to development of Three Houses, and the final decision was made as Toshiyuki Kusakihara felt she could best illustrate the "glamorous, aristocratic society" portrayed in the game. Her influence was particularly noted in the hairstyles of characters, which differed from those seen in earlier Fire Emblem leads.
