Yome (ヨメ, Yome) is a kunoichi of Sunagakure and a teammate of Sen and Shira. Yome used to play with Sen and Temari when they were little. While still in the Academy, Yome and Sen watched from afar as Shira was mocked and ridiculed by their peers. Despite being banned from joining the Academy because of his lack in ninjutsu and genjutsu, Shira continued to train himself in taijutsu. Sen and Yome ultimately came to admire the young man and were happy for him when Gaara, the new Fifth Kazekage, revoked the rules to allow Shira to attend the Academy.
