Character Biography

Sakuya is the head maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion serving under Remilia Scarlet, who came to Gensokyo with Remilia a few years prior to the events of The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Much of her back story is enigmatic and shrouded in mystery, but what is known is that Sakuya is not her original name, but a name that was given to her by Remilia. The most widely accepted theory, according to Heida no Akyuu's records of Gensokyo, is that she was once an eager vampire hunter who challenged Remilia and lost. She also seems to have some connection to Eirin Yagokoro, who immediately recognized her during the events of Imperishable Night, but the true nature of this relationship is unknown. Sakuya is typically cold toward humans, whom she makes no effort to try to befriend despite being one herself, yet always possesses an elegant, polite demeanor, as well as extreme loyalty towards Remilia.
