Whether or not she did this with Ren is unknown.

* CharacterDevelopment: Kaname zigzags between being a kind-hearted soul and an outright manipulative prick. To be fair to him, trying to maintain his "goodness" in a CrapsackWorld of power-hungry vampires and hunters took its toll on him, though it still doesn't excuse his heinous actions towards Yuuki and Zero. After acknowledging his mistakes and finally accepting Yuuki and Zero's superior relationship to his own, he dies in peace and is revived a changed man. Without the burdens of vampirism and his [[DarkAndTroubledPast memories tying him down]], Kaname is able to relax and be himself around others.

demise.

Bonus chapters reveal that her true name used to be "Hoshino" and she, along with her younger sister "Yoruno", were once offered to be sacrificed by cruel vampires in an attempt to appease Kaname's bloodlust. Disgusted by their actions, Kaname helps free both sisters but in the attempted escape, Seiren's sister ends up dying, with Seiren on the brink of death herself. Kaname offers her a choice to either die and join her sister or become a vampire like himself. She chooses the latter and in gratitude for the man's kindness, she develops fierce loyalty towards her savior, abandoning her "human" name and taking up her current name.



* BrokenBird: Good god, her backstory is tragic. Losing her younger sister, losing her humanity, losing her innocence; it's enough to break anyone.



* MeaningfulName: ''Seiren'' translates to "star" (''sei'') and "to smelt" or "refine" (''ren''). Also, ''ren'' is of the same kanji as ''rengoku'', which means "purgatory."

Bonus chapters reveal that Kaname gave this name to her after she became a vampire; she and her younger sister were ingrained with the idea of "heaven and hell" and dying terrifies them since they do not want to go to hell. By existing as a vampire and prolonging her life, Seiren exists in a "purgatory" of sorts until she proves herself worthy enough to enter heaven later.

* TheCutie: Ai was essentially this as a child, especially whenever she's around Zero.



* FirstLove: Unsurprisingly, Ai grows up first loving her adoptive father Zero normally, then goes on to develop deeper feelings for the man. She later gives up when she realizes she has no chance of breaking Zero and Yuuki apart, though she continues to love Zero.



* ParentalAbandonment: When we see them, Zero is dead (most likely from old age), and Yuuki sacrifices herself to make Kaname human, apparently leaving him in their care.
