Saya is a kunoichi from Sunagakure and a teammate of Sana and Mamushi. Saya is a very arrogant and sadistic kunoichi, revelling in finding new prey; this also extends to her teammates if they displease her. She is also very domineering, making her teammates refer to her as "Lady" (お嬢さま, Ojō-sama) and follow all her orders. She has a strong superiority-complex, believing herself superior to her enemies and refuses to believe herself capable of ever losing. When people challenge that view, she enters a hysterical state, compelled to make the person pay. Saya is also shown to have a very strong attachment to her ninja-puppet and all things she deems cute, her attachment to her puppet extends to the point of masquerading like it for a prolonged period of time.
