~ Saya to her father

Blood C Saya Kisaragi2
I want a sword... A strong sword
~ Saya to Kimihiro Watanuki


Kisaragi Saya (更衣 小夜, Kisaragi Saya) is the main heroine of the series Blood-C. She is unrelated to any previous entry in the Blood franchise aside from her first name, chosen weapon and abilities. Outwardly, Saya is an innocent and clumsy girl who acts as the shrine maiden at her father's shrine, going out at night to hunt Elder Bairns as part of a sworn duty. In reality, she is an Elder Bairn who was abandoned and raised by humans. Due to an oath she swore, she is unable to feed on humans herself, and the experiment was designed to see if her nature could be altered.[1]

Range: At least extended melee range

Standard Equipment: Katana/Anything Sturdy, her own blood

  • The Holy Sword
  • Goshintou: The Sword of the Holy God, is the sacred katana that Saya uses. It has been transmitted through her family for generations and is used to kill the Furukimono. Goshintou appears from the first episode to the last. According to Tadayoshi, he tells his daughter, Saya, that Goshintou is "the sacred sword" of the Kisaragi family that has been handed down from generation to generation and the only one with the ability to kill the Furukimonos, the living representation of evil.
    Later the truth about Goshintou is revealed; it is nothing more than an ordinary katana (with an amazing blade, yes), and the whole "Holy Sword" and "Priestess of Temple" is just a lie. Anything that can bleed a Furukimono is enough to kill it.
  • Saya attains a new sword in Yūko's Shop from Watanuki after the previous shattered while killing Mana's father.
  • Optional Equipment: Stalagmite, mop handle, floor lamp, etc.

Intelligence: In battle, Saya is capable of deducing an enemies weakness and fighting style such as with the Eye Elder Barin. She is a master of many forms of weapon and when her signature weapon is unavailable she is able to improvise with almost anything sturdy such as a mop handle. In the film The Last Dark, Saya practiced extreme caution around most of the other characters and cautiously refrained from consuming most food and drink which later proved justified.[3]

Standard Tactics: Saya uses her sword to fight with great mastery with her enhanced senses and should be familiar with many battlefield tactics given her long life and experience. She would also use stealth, diversions and weaknesses to exploit.

Weaknesses: Innocent, ditzy and clumsy, falls into a state of trance after defeating an Old One where she has blood cravings before falling out of consciousness, bound by an oath to not kill humans | Still bound by the same oath



- Strength

- Speed/Agility

- Durability

- Skill

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Enhanced Endurance: Saya has been shown surviving injuries that would kill a human without question and still be capable of fighting even with said injuries. After having her head blown open by Fumito’s she simply bandages the injury and leaves the experiment site.
  • Enhanced Strength: Despite her petite appearance, Saya was capable of holding her ground against Elder Barin’s much larger than her like Cerberus with either a katana, anything sturdy or empty-handed.
  • Swordsmanship: Saya has shown herself to be a competent swordswoman although the style she uses is unknown. A majority of Elder Bairns slain by Saya were defeated when she was wielding a katana.
  • Intelligence: In battle, Saya is capable of deducing an enemies weakness and fighting style such as with the Eye Elder Barin. When her signature weapon is unavailable she is able to improvise with almost anything sturdy such as a mop handle. In the film The Last Dark, Saya practiced extreme caution around most of the other characters and cautiously refrained from consuming most food and drink which later proved justified.
  • Enhanced Speed: When facing off against her father, Saya managed to defeat him with several blinding strikes that severed his arms.

Key: Fake Personality (suppressed) | True Personality (awakened)

Note: Not to be confused with her alternate universe counterparts Saya and Saya Otonashi. This one is part of CLAMP-verse.



The hybrids are the result of the mating of a Furukimono with a human being. So far only two hybrids have been seen in Blood-C:

Saya: The protagonist of the story owes her unique abilities (self-regeneration, superhuman strength, agility and speed) to carry in her veins both the blood of an Ancient (what gives her her power) and a human being (to whom she owes her appearance). While it is not something that has ever been 100% clear, it is very likely that her mother was the Furukimono and her father a simple human.

Tadayoshi: The first male hybrid seen in the entire BLOOD universe. It is unknown who of his parents was an Ancient (it could have been his mother or his father), but Fumito states in the last episode that in fact "he is equal to Saya", as Tadayoshi himself implies to the girl after.

The hybrids are, according to a statement by Fumito: "Beings with a human appearance, but with powers that surpass them". The only notable difference that would differentiate them is the fact that when they are born as a hybrid, they do not possess "special abilities" (throwing acid, flying, multiplying, etc.) as can be seen in other pure-bred Furukimonos.
