It's just meant as a reference to similarity, much like Hazama and Kazuma.
* TheCameo: Appears in ''Central Fiction'' as the Imperator's Amane-fied form.

* IdenticalStranger: Looks a lot like the Imperator. They both have [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], [[RapunzelHair long]] [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair purple hair]] kept in a ponytail, and have designs based on {{Miko}}. [[spoiler:However, Saya appears as Izanami's Amane-fied form during Amane's Astral, so make of that what you will.]]

* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: As shown in ''Wheel of Fortune'', she used to call Jin "Jin-niisama". When Tsubaki sees this vision of the past about the siblings, she gets freaked out about how someone else calls her ChildhoodFriend that way.

[[folder:Mikado/Imperator Librarius]] [[quoteright:301:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mikadoperator.png]] [[caption-width-right:300:Nightmare Memory]] --> ''I shall deliver death unto all of the living.'' -> '''Voiced by:''' Kanako Kondo (''CS''), Creator/{{Yukana}} (''Extend''-current) / Creator/KateHiggins (credited as Kate Davis in ''Alter Memory'') -> The mysterious head of the Novus Orbis Librarium, and the ruler of the whole world. [[ShadowDictator Only a few have actually seen the Imperator in person]], those few being the heads of the Duodecim and select high-ranking members of the Library. She's shown first in ''CS'' true ending and becomes more prominent in ''CP'' onward. %%-> In ''Continuum Shift'', it is revealed that the Imperator is Saya -- the long-lost sister of Ragna and Jin who is the template for the Murakumo units. Her mindset, however, has been warped into that of a cold nihilist who believes the world should be a place of death. To that end, she has Terumi and Relius assist her in destroying Takamagahara and putting an end to the constant repetitions of time and space. %%-> In ''Chronophantasma'', she wields the power of Takamagahara and initiates a battle of "timeline reset" against Master Unit Amaterasu, causing several time distortions throughout the game. However, it is implied that the Imperator will perish once she uses all her power to destroy the Master Unit. [[spoiler:''Chronophantasma'' also reveals that Saya has become a vessel for Hades Izanami, whose goal is to create a world of death and decay. She serves as a TrueFinalBoss of the game, commanding the Nox Nyctores: Gigant Take-Mikazuchi for a humongous boss battle reminiscent of [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom Apocalypse, Onslaught, Abyss, Galactus,]] [[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom Yami]], and [[VideoGame/MeltyBlood Dust of Osiris]]. It is also revealed that she is NOT the rightful Imperator, as, with Terumi's machinations, she managed to usurp the title from the previous one, Tenjou Amanohokosaka. By the end of ''Chronophantasma'', she voluntarily abdicates and names Tenjou's son, Homura, as her successor to the throne, as well as ditching Terumi and Relius and kickstarts her plan of creating the "True Blazblue".]] * AffablyEvil: Not shown as much in Continuum Shift due to her limited appearances, but Chronophantasma shows she's quite polite to both allies and enemies alike. * AntiGravityClothing: Her ring-crown thingy seemingly floats around her head without any visible attachments. * AssistCharacter: [[spoiler:Although she is the one controlling Take-Mikazuchi, the Imperator herself can only fire three {{Energy Ball}}s at you or summon a trio of {{Attack Drone}}s, making Take-Mikazuchi do most of the work.]] * BigBad: [[spoiler:The end of ''Chronophantasma'' establishes her (or rather, Izanami) as the primary antagonist and the main driver of the conflict, following the demise of Terumi and Relius' utter defeat. The two were mere pawns to her. Quite fitting seeing as she shares more than a few traits with [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear That Man]] and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Ramlethal Valentine]]]]. * TheCaligula: [[spoiler:A malevolent avatar of death at the topmost seat of the Librarium's hierarchy is never a promising sign. Makoto's story to Tsubaki suggests she may have been on board with Terumi and Relius in igniting the Ikaruga Civil War.] * TheComicallySerious: Put her in a room with [[LaughablyEvil Terumi]], have some popcorn on hand and enjoy the show. * CompleteImmortality: [[spoiler:As the avatar of death, she cannot truly die.]] * DeadpanSnarker: In ''Chronophantasma''. Particularly if she's near Terumi. --> '''Hazama:''' And... How are things on your end, Imperator? --> '''Imperator:''' I have no problems. If I was forced to give one, it is that your voice hurts my ears. --> '''Hazama:''' Ahh, sharp-tongued as always. Even I have feelings, too, you know. * DemonicPossession: In ''The Wheel of Fortune'', Relius refers to Saya as a "vessel," and when we see her as the Imperator Librarius, she acts completely different from how she used to. ''Chronophantasma'' reveals that Saya is [[spoiler:possessed by Izanami, explaining her different stance. According to Terumi and Izanami, though, she isn't fully possessed, partly due to Terumi's MindRape as well as Saya's devotion to Ragna (which Izanami decides to use to her advantage towards him). It's additionally hinted that Noel (and to an extent, other Murakumo Units) carries some parts of Saya's consciousness.]] ** [[spoiler:She also can manipulate Tsubaki's thoughts from afar, and this gets increasingly intense that in the Japanese version, Izayoi (in cutscenes) starts talking in tandem with Imperator's voice.]] * EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: Izanami might be the avatar of death]], but she doesn't like working with Terumi that much. This is most evident in her interactions with Terumi and Relius during ''Chronophantasma's'' opening. While she treats Relius like a friend and confidant, she barks orders at Terumi, snarks at him, threatens him if he gets out of hand, and even freely offered Ragna Terumi's head in exchange for the former's loyalty to her. But it's justified as [[spoiler:her vessel Saya still harbors lingering resentment towards Terumi for what he did to her and her family, which causes Izanami to act on it.]] -->'''Imperator:''' Do not take that tone with me. We are not peers. * EverybodyHatesHades: [[spoiler:In Shinto tradition, Izanami is just the Goddess of the Underworld, who while vengeful towards her husband Izanagi, wasn't really that bad. In ''[=BlazBlue=]'' however, Izanami is the cruel GreaterScopeVillain who wants to create a "world of death" by corroding all life into seithr using the [=BlazBlue=] Embryo.]] * EvilCounterpart: Chronophantasma sets her up to be Rachel's counterpart. Both are extremely powerful females[[spoiler: outside the normal conventions of life and death]], both lead boys with Azure Grimoires (Rachel to Ragna, Imperator to Terumi), and both are surprisingly snarky. * EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler:To Terumi and Relius. They thought they were in control of everything, but Izanami [[EvilIsNotAToy proved them wrong.]]]] * {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:There were hints of Izanami's existence early in the series, like how Saya changed. Likewise, in the ending of ''Continuum Shift'', Takamagahara spoke with dread about the Imperator's awakening; an omniscient collective consciousness would not freak out unless it was completely game-changing.]] * FightingFromTheInside: [[spoiler:Saya's vain attempts at this to get her body back rubs off on Izanami and makes her rather favorable towards Ragna.]] * GenericDoomsdayVillain: Terumi is motivated by [[ForTheEvulz sadism]] and [[StrawNihilist nihilism]], Relius by [[ForScience science]], Azrael by [[BloodKnight bloodlust]] and Phantom[[spoiler:/Nine]] by [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]] [[spoiler:[[RageAgainstTheHeavens and a personal grudge against the Master Unit]]]]. By contrast, she wants to create a world of death, but has no clear motivation on ''why'' beyond just [[spoiler:being an avatar of death itself]] by this point. * GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Zig-Zagged. [[spoiler: While her presence was revealed in ''Continuum Shift'', the fact that she is the Goddess of Death, and the true extent of her power, is not revealed until ''Chronophantasma’s'' True Ending. However, her power is forshadowed early in the game by Rachel, who says that even [[WorldsStrongestMan Hakumen at his full power]] might not be able to beat her and that, since she is “death”, the only way to defeat her is to [[ShootTheDog kill her host]]]]. * GodIsEvil: [[spoiler:She is the malicious [[GodEmperor God Empress]]]] * GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:Saya's body turns out to be a vessel for Izanami.]] * GreaterScopeVillain: Of ''Calamity Trigger'' and ''Continuum Shift''. * HairDecorations: She wears a golden ring-thingy that accompanies her hairpins. * HijackingCthulhu: [[spoiler:Is powerful enough to pull Take-Mikazuchi out of the atmosphere and use it at full power. Justified in that she's a ''literal'' goddess]]. * KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:Her betrayal of Relius and Terumi utterly demolished their previously-unbreakable InvincibleVillain credentials, leaving them high and dry in their moment of distress.]] * LockedIntoStrangeness: Much like Ragna, Saya no longer sports the golden locks from her childhood, leaving Jin as the only one in the family who is still a natural blond. In fact, thanks to Saya's purple hair and red eyes, it is ''Noel'' who more closely resembles the younger Saya, not Saya herself. [[spoiler:It's a side-effect of being possessed by Izanami.]] * LostInTranslation: [[spoiler:Her name in Japanese is "Meiou Izanami" (冥王イザナミ); that is, "Dark Lord Izanami", Meiou being her title. Meiou is also what the Japanese call "Pluto" (both the Roman god and the planet) and, subsequently, "Hades" (his Greek counterpart), which is what ends up being used in the overseas release.]] * {{The Mean|Brit}}, [[EvilBrit Brit]]: Even moreso than Jin, and with an English accent in the English-language track to boot. * {{Miko}}: Official art reveals she has a stylized version of the red-and-white ensemble under her coat. * NoSell: [[spoiler:An attack from Hakumen does nothing to her; Hakumen's sword kills time and since she's the avatar of death, and time would be inconsequential to her domain, she's invulnerable to it.]] * {{Not H|imself}}erself: Her attitude has become quite odd over the past few years [[spoiler:due to Izanami's possession.]] * OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:Izanami wants to create a "world of death."]] * OutsideContextVillain: [[spoiler:Being the Goddess of Death, she's ''way'' out of Hazama and Relius' league, and likely everyone else's as well. And while other great powers in the game have connections to either the Boundary or the Azure, Izanami is powerful all by herself. A powerful attack by Hakumen doesn't even faze her.]] * PimpedOutDress * PowerFloats: She can be seen floating freely during some cutscenes. [[spoiler:She also floats all the time during the boss fight with Take-Mikazuchi.]] * [[PuppetKing Puppet Queen]]: She was installed by Relius and Hazama to lead the NOL while they lurk in the shadows. ''Continuum Shift'' indicates that she's not aware of it, and believes she truly is the mastermind behind everything. Rachel apparently knows the truth, and tries to tell her as much, but she disregards it. [[spoiler:And for good reason; when Terumi dies and Relius loses much of his life's work, she leaves them to their fate, stating that their cooperation only lasted until Doomsday's end. That is pretty much what they get for installing someone much more powerful than them as Imperator, really.]] * PurpleIsPowerful * RapunzelHair: Trademark of all of the Murakumo Units, who are clones of Saya (specifically only numbers 11 through 13, although it's hinted that one of them carries parts of Saya's consciousness). ** Is nearly twice as long as the Murakumo Units despite being in a ponytail, may be a side effect of [[spoiler: Izanami's possession.]] * RedEyesTakeWarning: also doubles as [[spoiler: MindControlEyes.]] * SheIsTheKing: Holds the title of ''Mikado'' (''Imperator Librarius'' in the dub), which implies a male ruler. * TheStoic: Only averts this when she tells others of her plans for the world, by which she becomes rather enthusiastic. * StrawNihilist: She calls the way the world is supposed to be "a world of death." [[spoiler:This is because she's a vessel for Izanami, and became the avatar of death as a result.]] * ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:After summoning Take-mikazuchi and being confronted by Ragna, Jin, and Noel, she [[DoNotCallMePaul insists not to be referred to as "Saya"]], but rather "Hades Izanami".]] * [[HeroicRROD Villainous RROD]]: Terumi anticipated that overuse of the Takamagahara on her will is not doing good for her health and it's implied that she won't make it alive to see the result of her victory, if she is victorious at all. [[spoiler:Her being the avatar of death, this wasn't going to work out for him.]] * WalkingSpoiler: The person who's the head of the organization that governs the world and has a hand in everything related to the plot? The protagonist's sister, [[spoiler:becoming the vessel of a manifestation and avatar of death? The fact that she betrays Terumi and Relius at the climax of the third game?]] Yeah, the Imperator is kind of a big deal. * [[TheManBehindTheMan The Woman Behind the Men]]: [[spoiler:Relius and Terumi seriously underestimated her. They made her Imperator so they could use the NOL's resources to further their own goals of destroying the Master Unit and ending the time loops. What they hadn't anticipated was that she would turn on them after they served their purpose in her own plans, severing their connection to the NOL and its resources and abandoning them to their enemies. She's also hinted to be this to Sechs; see GreaterScopeVillain above.]] * WeCanRuleTogether: Half of what she does in ''Chronophantasma'' is asking Ragna to join her, trying to taunt him into doing so by using Saya's voice whenever he declines so as to entice him [[spoiler:due to Izanami making use of Saya's devotion toward him. Eventually she reanimates Nu to fuse with him, gradually remaking the Black Beast from his flesh, [[AndIMustScream all the while he tries to prolong outright killing Jin, Noel and Celica]] (he succeeds, but [[CurbStompBattle Jin is beaten to an inch of his life in the process]]).]] * XanatosSpeedChess: She's quick to counteract should she encountered some losses. ** [[spoiler:When Ragna moves to activate his Azure Grimoire after stalemating to Nu, she intervenes to jam it. Losing Nu would have thrown her plot to summon the Master Unit off the rails, since Noel was far less likely to comply by this point.]] ** [[spoiler:When Makoto defeats Izayoi!Tsubaki in ''Bonds'', she intervenes to forcibly reinstate Mind Eater and push the fight to a deathmatch. Losing the Izayoi would leave her without a way to kill Rachel Alucard. Likewise, when Makoto tries again to sway Tsubaki away from the Main Branch, she intervened immediately and threw Tsubaki out of character as a result. That near rescue must have really hit home.]] ** [[spoiler:When Rachel sends Ragna to Phase 0 through the Ibukido Cauldron and successfully recalls him after the fact, Izanami ordered Takamagahara's destruction. Between this and Makoto, Noel and Jin's successful rescue of Tsubaki, she must have been real sour.]] ** [[spoiler:After Ragna and Celica emerge with an unconscious Nu in the former's hands, Izanami ejects Hakumen by force, sics Nine on Jubei, and reanimates Nu to hug.exe Ragna, invoking his transformation and near-murder of Jin.]] * [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]] * YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Betrays Terumi and Relius by abandoning them when both of their plans fail, even saying she would give them "a proper death." When Ragna returns from Phase 0, she commands Phantom to destroy Takamagahara as well.]] [[/folder]]
