     Yuuki Cross / Kuran 

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Mela Lee (English)

That incident ten years ago... was my "beginning."

The main heroine. Yuuki is the adoptive daughter of Headmaster Cross and works with her childhood friend Zero as a Prefect, monitoring the Day Class and Night Class. She was saved from a vampire attack ten years ago by Kaname, who she has been in love with ever since. In actuality, she is the daughter of the two pureblood vampires, Haruka and Juuri Kuran, making Kaname her blood brother. Per tradition, they are destined to marry one another, despite being related to each other.

Due to dark circumstances, Yuuki lost some of her admiration for her brother and comes to have second thoughts about their relationship. Instead, she falls even deeper in love with Zero. By series end, Yuuki gives birth to Kaname's child after one last tryst with the man and she moves on with her life by marrying Zero and having his child. After Zero's death, she then sacrifices herself to bring Kaname back to life as a human, joining Zero in the afterlife and leaving Kaname in the hands of her children.

  • Action Girl: She's physically active and agile, especially after she reawakens as a vampire.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Both of her love interests are this type, to varying degrees. Eventually, Kaname's bad side becomes too much for her to take and she gravitates towards Zero instead.
  • Anchored Ship: In the post-ending bonus chapter, she and Zero are revealed to drink each other's blood a lot, but it's ambiguous whether they're actually dating. Although, Yori as an elderly woman asking them when they intend to get married would imply that they were. Eventually, they're shown to be living together, and the ending confirms they also had conceived one child between themselves. Which makes it all the more tragic when bonus chapters revealed Zero's death in Yuuki's arms.
  • Animal Motifs: Butterflies. She can even grow butterfly blood wings out her back!
  • Babies Ever After: She has children with both Zero and Kaname. She had a daughter named Ren with Zero and a daughter named Ai with Kaname.
  • Belated Love Epiphany: Seems to realize she returns Zero's feelings only after the two separate at the end of arc 1.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Archie in her love triangle between Zero and Kaname.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Played with. She's initially disturbed when finding out she's been in love with her own brother, but Kaname convinces her that it's normal for purebloods to intermarry. Later she finds out that he's not really her brother, but her ancestor. Seeing as he was still raised as her brother, she continues to consider him as such, though she quits calling him "big brother".
  • Big Eater:
    Aidou (in inner monologue): Also according to them, she's "a small girl who can eat so much despite her size."
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The gentle girl to brooding Zero.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: She is actually Kaname's sister and the daughter of Haruka and Juuri. In spite of this, they still remain a couple because it is common for purebloods to interbreed. Though, it's revealed that with Kaname really the progenitor of the Kurans, they are still technically related.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Zero.
  • Childhood Marriage Promise: With Kaname. It doesn't follow through.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Yuuki has the unfortunate habit of trying to save "everything" to the best of her ability. It turns out to be her greatest weakness since she simply can't, and realizing that brings her a lot of pain.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Becomes jealous whenever the Day and Night Class girls speak with Kaname. Much later in the series, when Maria shows interest in Zero, the normally kind Yuuki gets pissed.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair and brown eyes, a staple of the Kuran family.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: In addition to being very energetic, she can be pretty clumsy as well. She loses this trait as she becomes more melancholy as the story goes on.
  • Dating Catwoman: In spite of being enemies, Zero and Yuki still love each other. By series end, they get together.
  • Death by Despair: While the main series shows that Kaname's death devastated Yuuki, she managed to move on and raise her and Kaname's child, Ai, with Zero. Later on, after becoming a proper family and conceiving Ren, the death of Zero was too much for Yuuki to bear and she gives up her own life force to revive Kaname in order to join her true love in the afterlife.
  • Distressed Damsel: A lot of the plot seems to revolve around protecting Yuuki.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Occasionally shown wearing this after the timeskip as a pureblood vampire and during the first ending credits in the anime.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: When Kaname ditches her for his plan to commit genocide.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: If dealing with her male Harem wasn't already hard enough, she has to deal with Les Yay from Shizuka.
  • Expy: No doubt her characteristics matched Trish.
  • Genki Girl: Everyone knows this to be Yuuki's main character trait. It's what draws people to her in the first place. The second half of the story really mellows her out.
  • Girl Next Door: Yuuki is about as normal as one can get when compared with other characters in the story. Zero, Yori, and Kaname knew her since childhood.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Sara in regards to Kaname and Maria in regards to Zero.
  • Heel Realization: Realizes that acting like a jerk towards Zero wasn't the smartest move to make.
  • The Hero Dies: After living a thousand years with Zero, she then sacrifices herself to make the slumbering Kaname human.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of the final chapter, Yuuki sacrifices herself to make the slumbering Kaname human.
  • The Heroine: Between the male leads, Yuuki's the main female character of the team.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Yori.
  • I Am Who?: She is really Yuuki Kuran, a pureblood vampire.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Her reaction to Kaname.
  • Immortality Begins at 20: In the future, when Yori is an elderly grandma, it is shown that Yuuki hasn't aged a bit.
  • I Owe You My Life: Yuuki feels indebted towards Kaname for rescuing her ten years ago.
  • Important Haircut: Yuuki's hair grows volumes after her vampire self is resurrected and after living with Kaname for some time, who refuses to let her cut it. She eventually whacks it all off when she makes it clear that she's working with Zero to take Kaname down.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Kaname in the first arc (human and pureblood vampire), then ironically with Zero in the second (pureblood vampire and vampire hunter/level D vampire).
  • It's All My Fault: Sees herself as the cause of, or at least a big part of the reason for Zero's suffering, and later Kaname's genocide mission.
  • Last Kiss: Two with the men she grew to love.
  • Like Brother and Sister: This is what she thinks about Zero at first.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: She really dislikes being kept in the dark, especially when it's about her own Mysterious Past.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Zero seems to think of her like this at times.
  • Meaningful Name: Yuuki means "tender" or "kind" (yuu) and "princess" (ki). Cross (or Kurosu) is the Japanese pronunciation of "cross" and the kanji chosen for kurosu translates to "black" (kuro) and "master" (su). Yuuki's biological surname—Kuran—translates to "nine orchids" because ku means "nine" and ran means orchids.
  • Modesty Shorts: Yuuki is constantly running and jumping around to keep the peace in the Academy. Not once do readers see a panty shot.
  • Morality Pet: To Zero and Kaname.
  • Morph Weapon: Yuuki's main weapon, Artemis, which used to belong to her mother, can morph from a Simple Staff into a wicked looking Sinister Scythe.
  • Mysterious Past: Does she ever!! The finale of the first part of the story is Yuuki coming to terms with her past.
  • Not Blood Siblings: With Zero, as they were both raised by Kaien for some of their childhood. Lampshaded in Volume 2 and Volume 6, where she considers Zero like a "brother," mainly because of their status as childhood friends. As it turns out, she is this with Kaname as well, though they are still related.
  • Oblivious to Love: She initially has a really difficult time believing that Kaname reciprocates her feelings. It's justified because she has convinced herself since she was a child that Kaname is "unreachable" to her. On another note, she is also oblivious to Zero's feelings until Chapter 46.
    • In the first arc, she's also completely unaware of any feelings she might be harboring for Zero. In a post-ending summary, it's confirmed that she did, in fact, fall in love with him in said arc, but didn't realize it until after she returned to being a pureblood and the two separated.
  • Parental Abandonment: Was found in a blizzard and has no memory of her parents.
  • Plucky Girl: When she's not sleeping in class, Yuuki is running all over the place. Mellows out in the second half somewhat.
  • The Pollyanna: Good lord, the amount of angst that this girl goes through is not enough to keep her spirit down. In very heavy moments, her love interests step in to help her recover.
  • Psychological Projection: She thought she and Zero were struggling with the same pain and fears, but when Zero denies it, Yuuki says, "I guess I was only seeing myself".
  • Rapunzel Hair: When she recovers her memories as a pureblood.
  • Rebellious Princess: Like her mother, Yuuki is not one who follows rules. This tends to get her in trouble.
  • Relationship Upgrade: With Kaname and when that relationship starts to fail, her bond with Zero starts to strengthen. Unlike with Kaname, it sticks.
  • Replacement Goldfish:
    • After noticing her resemblance to Juuri, Yuuki's uncle Rido (who was in love with Juuri) changed his plans from devouring Yuuki to keeping her as a substitute for Juuri. Doubles as No Yay.
    • Also, played with in Chapter 64 when she asks this to Kaname after learning of Kaname's attachment to a woman when he was the Ancestor of the Kurans.
  • Rescue Romance: This is how she first meets Kaname and develops feelings for him.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Yori.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Either with Zero or Kaname.
  • Second Love: Zero. An official summary after the main series' end confirms that she fell in love with him in the first arc, but she didn't become aware of it until the second. Eventually she ends up with him.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Over Kaname in the first arc. Later she shows signs of this towards Zero.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Zero.
  • Surprise Pregnancy: In a bonus chapter after the end, she realizes she's pregnant with Kaname's child, causing her to disappear for four years apparently for not being able to face Zero. Eventually she does return and begs for Zero's forgiveness, never realizing that Zero has never hated her or her child for it.
  • Terrible Artist: Both she and Kaname are comically revealed to be this at different points. Apparently a family trait.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After she reawakens as a pureblood vampire.
  • Tragic Heroine: The second part of the story reinforces this.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Kaname. She even admits to Aidou that she wouldn't even mind if he betrayed her, and Ichijou later admits that he's jealous of how resolute she is when it comes to Kaname. However, she gradually loses this loyalty towards him in the second arc.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Zero.
  • Voluntary Vampire Victim: Yuuki offers to help Zero sate his bloodlust and avoid becoming a level E vampire, since he was a normal human who was bitten by a vampire years ago.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: After the one year time skip, she is shown struggling with the thought of being immortal. She later enforces this fully when Zero ends up dying and leaving her alone. She quickly goes on to revive Kaname by sacrificing herself, joining Zero.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Yuuki, along with the rest of the girls at the Academy, loves this fashion.

     Zero Kiryuu 

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Vic Mignogna (English)

I will never allow that to happen... even if it makes Kuran my enemy... and even if you hate me for it.

Yuuki's childhood friend and a fellow Prefect. Zero is often aloof and unfriendly. He has a hatred for vampires ever since his family was murdered by a pureblood vampire five years ago. Zero was bitten by Pureblood vampire, Shizuka Hio, which is slowly causing him to transform into a vampire who inevitably become "Level E": a vampire who's lost all sense of reason. He also has not so subtle feelings for Yuuki. As a result of Kaname's "help" and his twin brother's sacrifice, Zero has managed to halt his descent into "Level E". However, later learning about Yuuki's true heritage and his fear and anger for Purebloods, as well as his own guilt, caused him to push Yuuki away from him, an action that he has then regretted since.

Years later, Zero learns that Kaname was responsible for the deaths of his family as part of some cruel elaborate scheme, which causes Yuuki to finally abandon Kaname and be by Zero's side. After Kaname's death, Zero finally marries the girl of his dreams and starts a family with her. At some point during their happy marriage, Zero ends up dying in Yuuki's arms from an external force. After the young hunter's death, he is later joined by Yuuki in the afterlife when she gives up her life to save and revive a redeemed Kaname.

  • Always Save the Girl: Zero will go to hell and back to protect his loved ones, particularly Yuuki.
  • Anchored Ship: With Yuuki; see her example.
  • Animal Motifs: The Dog.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: Zero's identical twin died during their childhood (his twin was actually alive for all the years Zero thought he was dead), a part of Zero's Dark and Troubled Past. Later played this straight when he finally devours Ichiru in the prison.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Towards Yuuki in Chapter 46. While Yuuki acknowledges his feelings, it's an anguished love confession because he confesses that he only wants Yuuki's blood right after Yuuki admits she only desires Kaname's blood. Later his confession bares fruit when Yuuki comes to terms with her own feelings towards Zero.
  • Asleep for Days: He slept for a week after Yuuki erased his memories in chapter 88/89.
  • Babies Ever After: He and Yuuki have a daughter together, named Ren. Zero also adopts Yuuki's and Kaname's daughter Ai.
  • Betty and Veronica: Betty to Kaname's Veronica.
  • Bishōnen: Pretty enough to be on par with the Night Class.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The brooding boy to gentle Yuuki.
  • Character Development: Grows out of his vampire hatred over time and accepts Yuuki as she is. Though they will never see eye to eye, Zero also lets go of his grudge towards Kaname somewhat.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Yuuki.
  • Classical Anti-Hero
  • Dark and Troubled Past: This is an understatement. Losing his parents, losing his twin, struggling with the process of becoming a vampire. The guy needs a hug.
  • Dating Catwoman: In spite of being enemies, Yuuki and he still love each other. They get together in the end.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Twice even.
  • Delinquent: As a kid, he and Ichiru were known to be mischievous.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: In the first arc, that is.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: The final extra chapter opens up with Zero slowly fading away in Yuuki's arms; it's implied that he protected someone during an attack. He gives her one final kiss and lets himself be "consumed" by Yuuki before breaking into pieces. Yuuki is completely broken afterwards.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Type 2.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Zero goes through a lot of crap in order to finally be with Yuuki. He couldn't even have that as he's killed later and dies in the arms of his wife.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: How he felt when learns she is a Pureblood vampire all along.
  • Expy: From Dante. Both despised the other species that they become hunters in hunting them down, skilled with both a gun and sword, white-haired, have an evil twin brother (Vergil and Ichiru), and getting betrayed by the female lead (Trish and Yuuki) that they vowed to kill them the next time they crossed paths with the respective female. It kinda makes sense.
  • Forced to Watch: Zero has amazing resolve and patience to see Yuuki be with another man. At times, even this starts to wear thin.
  • Friend to All Children: Despite Zero's stoic nature, children are drawn to his kindness. Ai ends up adoring Zero as a result. Tragicially, it's implied that this is what ends up getting him killed.
  • Good Is Not Nice: While Zero is willing to do the right thing, his aloofness keeps others at bay. At times, he can be downright mean-spirited. Only those closest to him can break through his facade and see him for the good man that he is.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Zero gives Yuuki one last genuine happy smile before he dies in her arms and kisses her goodbye.
  • The Gunslinger: Zero becomes insanely skilled with wielding the Bloody Rose gun.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Kaname concerning Yuuki.
  • Grumpy Bear: His default expression is always to wear a scowl. A shame, since he used to be pretty pleasant as a child.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Of the second kind.
  • The Hero Dies: Eventually ends up sacrificing himself to save a child. He and Yuuki share a Last Kiss beforehand.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: With tears in her eyes and a sad smile on her face, Yuuki calls him a fool for going too far to protect not only her from danger but also a child that he had no relation to whatsoever. Zero dies shortly afterward.
  • Hot-Blooded: Zero is very passionate in his views and his temper can get the best of him and cause hime to act rashly.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: A vampire who hunts other vampires. Oh the irony.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Despite outward appearances, he remains a kind-hearted character no matter how much he's put through (as Yuuki even calls him out on at one point), and is considered unique in his nigh immunity to pureblood's charisma and control, which is hinted to be one of the reasons Kaname (and nearly all other purebloods we've seen) are so intrigued by, and interested in using him.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Yuuki in the second arc; see her example.
  • Interrupted Suicide: He attempts to after the day after drinking Yuuki's blood for the first time. Yuuki prevents it.
  • I Owe You My Life: To Yuuki for keeping him alive through drinking her blood. That's why he wouldn't mind if Yuuki used him.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He genuinely wants Yuuki to be with a person who makes her happy—even if it is Kaname. This doesn't stop his Unresolved Sexual Tension and Foe Yay with her, though.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The "gold" part is there; just have to really reach out for it.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Saves the day but does it scowling.
  • Last Kiss: In relation to Go Out with a Smile above, Zero does this to Yuuki before passing away.
  • Likes Older Women: According to his bio in the fanbook, his taste in woman are "cool older women" and "flat-chested women are out of the question." Of course, everyone can see he has his eyes set on a certain flat-chested girl...
  • Loners Are Freaks: Peope sometimes think this of him due to Zero's anti-social behavior, never realizing that while he craves companionship, he's afraid of hurting others due to his vampiric thirst.
  • Love Martyr: Is in love with a girl who is in love with a man he hates, and who treats him bad behind her back. Taken even further when it's revealed that Kaname was the one arranging his parents' murder, something Yuuki initially doesn't appear to take notice of.
  • Meaningful Name: Zero's first name has the kanji for rei, which means "zero" in Japanese. His last name Kiryuu translates to "auger"/"drill" (ki) and "life" (ryuu).
  • Mr. Fanservice: The night class are not the only pretty ones.
  • My Hero, Zero: The man's name and arguably the biggest and most noble character in the series.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Is treated like the story's, or more specifically, the love triangle's Butt-Monkey for a fair amount of the time despite being the most kindhearted character (stated by the author herself), always remaining loyal and protective of Yuuki (as mentioned below; even after alienating himself from her) and making her happier than Kaname which is even highlighted by the latter towards the end. To add to it, when he finally gets his happy ending, it's entirely skipped in favor for showing Yuuki returning to Kaname's tomb after his (Zero's) off-screen death, to sacrifice herself in order to give Kaname a happy ending as well.
    • With the release of bonus chapters, however, he's given more of a closure as it confirms their happy ending together next to the stated knowledge that Yuuki loves him, in the deepest sense of the word. He also demonstrates that he's a really good father, as Ai adores Zero. Later he wanted to make it known to the world that he and Yuuki are seeing each other and will live with her and Ai as a family man.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Zero and Yuuki, who were both raised by Kaien for some of their childhood. Lampshaded in Volume 2 and Volume 6, where Yuuki says she considers Zero like a "brother," mainly because of their status as Childhood Friends.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents were murdered by Shizuka Hio.
  • Parental Substitute: A post-ending bonus chapter shows him caring for Yuuki and Kaname's daughter, Ai, who in turn adores him and calls him "Father".
  • Perpetual Frowner: His main expression.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: With Ichiru. However at the heart of it all, both brother are really similar, as Kaien lampshades.
  • Rage Against the Reflection: He broke the mirror he was looking into when realizing his wound was healing much too fast for a human, meaning he'd become a vampire.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He still looks young when it skips 50 years, and considering his condition's similarity to Kaien, he likely remained young looking for at least a couple of centuries and more.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Zero gives out to Yuuki when he found out she's a Pureblood vampire all along.
    Zero: Coming here to talk? You don't really think that would make a difference, do you? Discussing things like turning humans into vampires. But of course you transformed from a vampire into a human. On the other side of this door, I sense an arrogant Pureblood who does nothing but torment people.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Maria's interest in Zero is hinted to stem from the fact that Ichiru's blood and spirit is inside of him.
  • Sanity Slippage: In the first arc, he suffers from this as he's slowly turning into a level E, something drinking Yuuki's blood only temporarily postpones. After indirectly receiving Shizuka's blood through Kaname and Ichiru, however, he becomes safe.
  • Second Love: To Yuuki. An official summary of the bonus chapters after the main series ended confirms that Yuuki fell in love with him in the first arc like he did with her, but she didn't become aware of it until the second arc.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Ichiru.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Kaien spazzes out when he notices that the twins entered the room with the same pose in a omake. In Chapter 73, when he lightly scolded Maria and carried her back to the Moon Dormitory, Maria noticed that Ichiru said and did the same thing to her when they first met.
  • Sour Supporter: As much as it pains him, he supports Yuuki's efforts with trying to "woo" Kaname. Doesn't last too long.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Yuuki.
  • The Stoic: Always remains calm no matter the circumstances. Yuuki and Kaien can bring out his comical side with ease. Kaname outright makes Zero homicidal.
  • Teen Genius: According to his bio in the official fanbook. But because he's always late to class, he attends supplementary classes.
  • Theme Twin Naming: 'Zero' literally means 'zero' and the 'ichi' in 'Ichiru' means 'one'.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Gets to live with Yuuki happily for a thousand years at the end of the story.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: A few chapters is dedicated to how Zero became the loner he is today, before he met Kaien and Yuuki.
  • Troubled, but Cute: A good-looking young man with a troubled past.
  • Tsundere: Will do the right thing, but complains about it being a bother. His friends know it's anything but.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Yuuki. Even after alienating himself from her, he still ends up protecting her on several occasions such as from Touma and angered hunters, and offers his own blood to her when witnessing her hunger while she's at the Hunter Association. In the finale, he also attempts to talk Kaname out of sacrificing himself to prevent Yuuki from grieving.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Yuuki.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Compare his quiet and gentle personality as a child to his adulthood. The difference is startling.
  • Vampire Hunter: It's his job. Later in the story, Zero is nominated to become president of the Vampire Hunters.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Zero's risk of becoming a Level E. Kaname's and Ichiru's blood seem to have ceased this because both of them had drank Shizuka's blood.
  • Workaholic: As a Vampire Hunter. Especially after the timeskip because it is the only thing to keep him sane without depending on Yuuki's blood.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Both purebloods in-universe and Matsuri herself seems to love screwing with him, for who knows what reason. This finally ends with the poor guy's death, in his lover's arms no less!

     Sayori "Yori" Wakaba 

Voiced by: Risa Mizuno (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

Yuuki... I feel like you're hiding something from me... I know you have "something" you can't tell me. And I know you're doing that to make me not worry about you. I'm lonely... Yuuki...

The best friend of Yuuki. Unlike the rest of the Day Class girls who are infatuated with the Night Class, she finds them scary and wouldn't mind dating a boy from the Day Class who's as handsome as Zero. Even after Yuuki's reveal as a Pureblood, she doesn't care. She ships Zero and Yuuki and expresses exasperation that they haven't gotten together yet. Later she falls for Aidou and marries the guy. However, for reasons unknown, she refused to become a vampire like him and dies a peaceful death from old age, leaving behind Aidou and her grandchildren.

  • Anger Born of Worry: When Yuuki apologizes to Yori for being a vampire, Yori calls her an idiot and hugs her. D'aww.
  • Arranged Marriage: Has a fiance she has never met before and doesn't even know his name.
  • Celibate Heroine: Probably because she already has an arranged fiance.
  • Closer to Earth: More grounded than her best friend Yuuki. She's the go to person when Yuuki and even Zero have problems they want to talk about.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brunette hair and brown eyes.
  • Emotionless Girl: Appears this way because of her lack of expression, but she's really just Closer to Earth.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend:
    Kaito: I didn't ask that earlier because we were in front of the association, but... are you Zero's girlfriend?
    Yori: No, a close friend of a childhood friend of his.
    Kaito: Oh...
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Yuuki.... then again....
  • Interspecies Romance: As the story winds down, she falls in love Aidou and vice-versa. Sadly she dies of old age before Aidou discovers too late the cure to vampirism, since she didn't want to turn into a vampire and Aidou desperately searched for a cure so that he can die with his lover.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Can be quite snarky when she wants to be.
  • Meaningful Name: Sayori means "sand" (sa) and "trust" (yori). Wakaba means "young leaves."
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: She is rarely called by her first name, Sayori.
  • Pair the Spares: Is paired with Aidou in a post-ending bonus chapter.
  • Plucky Girl: Sneaking into a vampire ball—fully aware of how dangerous that could be for a human girl — is either very brave or very stupid.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Yuuki.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Kaito planned to use her as a "sacrificial lamb" at a vampire ball in order for a vampire to bite Yori, as this would allow the hunters a reason to kill the purebloods. Luckily, she was left unscathed, on account of her massive luck and the fact that Zero, who was watching her the whole time, would tear any vampire limb from limb if they so much as touch her.
  • Secret Keeper: Is one of the few Day Class students who were allowed to keep their memories of the vampire battle at Cross Academy.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Would prefer someone from the Day Class rather than the Night Class. Later subverted when she falls for Aidou, after he mellowed out and became nicer, of course.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Silly things happen around her. Her face barely changes.

How well does it match the trope?
