Sakura is thought of as cute and helpless by boys who think they should protect her but shes actually a martial arts expert and turns down guys who ask her out because they dont know the real her. Prior to the storyline she found an old dog whose homeless owner had died a few months before the start of the story. She attempts to befriend the dog whom she promptly names Dog. Her attempts are fruitless until Oogami comes. She is apparently an exception to Reis fire and cannot be burned. Sakura disagrees strongly with Oogami regarding his views on people specifically criminals and that they are trash who need to die.
