Yuki Cross

[Edit]
Overview
Yuki Cross (黒主 優姫) is the adoptive daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy. She is a first year student, a member of the school's disciplinary committee and in that capacity acts as a Guardian for Cross Academy monitoring and protecting the Day Class. Yuki carries the anti-vampire weapon, the Artemis Rod. Yuki is generally a cheerful and comedic character, but has a fear of vampires that means she rarely leaves the Cross Academy grounds on her own .

When Yuki was approximately 5 years old, Rido Kuran attacked the Kuran family seeking to take Yuki. To protect her daughter, Juri sacrificed herself to seal Yuki's vampire side and erased her daughter's memory. Yuki's first memory is that of Kaname saving her from a vampire. Yuki grew up harboring deep feelings for him and the two had a close relationship. Yuki had troubled nightmares nightly until 4 years ago, when Zero joined their household and Yuki formed a strong attachment to the boy. Yuki's relationship with Kaname became distant after she witnessed his vampire nature as he feed on a vampire classmate and as a human, Yuki believed she had no chance with Kaname and began to fear him a little, but her attraction to him remained.

Following her discovery of Zero's awakened nature as a vampire and his subsequent struggles with bloodlust, Yuki chooses to allow Zero to feed upon her in secret. In order to prevent Zero running away, Yuki promises to be his ally and that she will kill him if he becomes a level E vampire. She also attempts to bargain her humanity for Zero's life when Shizuka offers her a deal, but Zero prevents her from becoming a vampire.

Troubled by the gap in her memory, Yuki attempts to ask Kaname to reveal what he knew about her past. Kaname bargains the answer in return for her becoming his lover. Yuki admits that she loves him and agrees to his proposal, but when she did not get an answer, she attempts to remember on her own, causing herself to have waking nightmares, at one point almost suffocating Zero. Kaname eventually bites Yuki and re-awakens her as a pureblood vampire and having her drink his blood brings back the complete memories of her past. Yuki is reunited with Kaname as his sister and his possible fiancee.

Returning to her vampire self, Yuki exhibits the uncontrolled return of her vampire powers and physical changes. Yuki chooses to break off her friendship with Zero, aware of the new antagonism between them, however Yuki retains her friendship with her best friend, Yori. Yuki begins to sense the danger of Rido's revival and Kaname attempts to remove her from danger. She refuses to leave the school, but convinces Kaname to leave and continue his mission after kissing him and promising him that she will return to his arms. She chooses to fight Rido and despite her Artemis Rod's attempts to reject her vampire nature, the weapon transforms into a scythe.

Yuki finally confronts her uncle Rido and almost falls prey to his words, only to be saved when Zero interrupts them in his own attempt to kill Rido. Yuki reconfirms her vow to be Zero's ally despite being called his enemy. Though Zero attempts to remove her from the fight, Yuki manages to score the killing blow on her uncle. However, she is forced to fight against Zero, who still intends to kill her and all pureblood vampires.
