Born the daughter of Kobe's most feared Yakuza boss, Kitsune learned early that she had to work twice as hard as her brothers for half the respect. By the time she was 15, she had earned the respect of every boss in Kobe. Despite that, because of her gender, Kitsune wasn't allowed to join the ranks of the Yakuza - a frustration that only fueled her drive to prove herself. Contemptuous of the petty political games played by her brothers, she dedicated her time to learning the intricacies of cybersecurity amongst local underground hacker groups, and martial arts under the instruction of her bodyguard's. By 21, she became Kobe's most prolific cat-burglar, targeting rising tech companies who thought their new security systems unbreachable.
~ Kitsune's bio.
Bang... Bang...
~ Kitsune upon the operatives hearing the broadcast.

Kaori Tanaka (香り たなか), also known as Kitsune (), is an antagonist in the 2020 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, appearing as a playable operative in the above mentioned game and Call of Duty: Warzone. She was released for the season five content for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and acts as the secondary antagonist in the fifth season for the Black Ops storyline.

The daughter of one of the most feared Yakuza bosses in Kobe, Kaori would have to prove herself by becoming a prolific cat burglar in an attempt to join the criminal underworld. Wanting to prove herself, Kaori would become a member of the Perseus Spy Network and assisted Vikhor "Stitch" Kuzmin in uploading the numbers broadcast to activate his sleeper agents.

She is voiced by Erika Ishii and Akemi Look [1].



Kaori Tanaka was born on December 12th, 1956 in Kobe, Japan to one of the most feared Yakuza bosses in her country, and also had two unnamed brothers as well. Kaori grew wanting to join the Yakuza, and knew at an early age that she would have to earn the respect of her father and the criminal underworld. Reaching the age of fifteen, Kaori had earned the respect of every boss in Kobe, but she still wasn't allowed to join the Yakuza due to her gender. Though equally frustrated by this, Kaori refused to give up and became more driven to prove herself to the Yakuza. While her brothers played politics, Kaori went through training in martial arts by her bodyguard, and became an expert hacker by speaking with hacker groups in Japan.

Becoming one of Kobe's most prolific cat burglar, Kaori would target tech companies that were on the rise, breaching their security systems that they thought were unbreachable. Though successful in the criminal underworld as a cyber criminal, Kaori's ambition and growing tension with her family pushed her to want to achieve more. Due to her talent, she gained the attention of Perseus, a rogue Soviet agent who held disdain for the United States influencing his country. It's assumed that Perseus was able to impress Kaori with his spy network, and she decided to join his cause.

Season Five

In 1984, Kitsune was assigned to fellow Perseus agent Vikhor "Stitch" Kuzmin, who wanted to brainwash American soldiers and have them act as sleeper agents. After getting the American satellites removed by Owethu "Jackal" Mabuza, Stitch assigned Kitsune to infilitrated a NATO station in West Berlin to upload Nikita Dragovich's numbers broadcast. While it was uploading, Kitsune was confronted by CIA operatives under the command of Frank Woods, but most of the operatives were brainwashed by the broadcast and turned on each other. Amidst the confusion, Kitsune watched Woods escape with operative Stryker as she left on a helicopter with the brainwashed soldiers.
