Sasami Masaki Jurai

Tenchi Muyo RyoOhki: In the original series Sasami and her sister Ayeka are the daughters of Emperor Masaki Azusa Jurai and the second of his two wives second Empress Masaki Misaki Jurai. On her mother039s side Sasami039s grandmother is Seto Kamiki Jurai and her grandfather is Utsutsumi Kamiki on her father039s side Sasami039s grandmother is Masaki Amame of Jurai and her grandfather is Yotsuga Kazuki. Sasami has a halfbrother called Yosho Masaki Jurai son of Emperor Azusa and his first wife Funaho. Shortly into the series Sasami and Ayeka take to living on Earth with Tenchi039s family Tenchi his father Nobuyuki and his mother039s father Yosho now named Katsuhito Masaki along with the catlike creature RyoOhki and three other women staying in the house. Sasami arrived on Earth by 039accident039 stowing away on her sisters ship when she went looking for Yosho. She quickly became close friends with RyoOhki and even Ryoko despite that Ryoko held a blade to Sasami039s throat almost as soon as they met. Sasami holds a dark secret within her past. Seven hundred years ago during the attack on Jurai by Ryoko Sasami was playing around in the Royal Arboretum and took a very dangerous fall and as a result was mortally injured and she believed that she died that day that she was now a copy of the 039real039 Sasami. The truth is that Sasami survived her injuries when Tsunamikamisama in the form of Tsunaminoki assimilated her. Tsunaminoki absorbed and recreated Sasami039s body in order to heal her... and merged her spirit with Sasami039s. In effect they are now one being with two souls and as they grow older their spirits will merge. This may account for her personality in this series. This also grants Sasami several powers that she does not possess in any other series. She now commands the most powerful ship in existence Tsunamifune and can summon it from subspace at will. Through her link to Tsunamikamisama she is linked to every Juraian Ship and their owners and can sense their location and status. She also has precognitive abilities but unfortunately these manifest as horrible disturbing and sometimes even bloody nightmares. Sasami hid her secret from those around her including herself because her greatest fear was that she would be rejected by those she loved. When it was finally revealed though Ayeka said she didn039t care about it and still loved Sasami just the way she was Tenchi Yosho and the other girls also accepted the fact. It should also be noted that if needed Sasami is an accomplished combatant most likely taught by her mother who is the Supreme Commander of the Royal Bodyguard and enhanced by the link with Tsunaminoki easily defeating Mashisu Makibi who was a trained Galaxy Police officer. One of the cherrylike hair bands she wears is capable of becoming a battle staff. Galaxy Space Mihoshi Special: In this oneoff episode written as a 039pilot039 for both Tenchi Universe and Pretty Sammy Sasami appears as herself possibly her OAV version but in the story told her name and image is used for the role of a Galaxy Police cadet and has a secret identity as Pretty Sammy along with her pet RyoOhki. She is also known as the best tea maker in the GXP. Tenchi Universe: In the first TV series Sasami is still Ayeka039s sister and princess of Jurai but there is no mention of her parents and Yosho along with his grandson Tenchi appears to be only a distant relative. Tsunami does not appear in this series so Sasami has no alterego other than Pretty Sammy. Sasami is still an accomplished cook. She has a much more happy innocent outlook on life and does not use any special powers. She does or did own her own ship but it was soon destroyed stranding her on Earth. She is an expert games player especially fighting games and takes the revived Azaka as her pupil. During the three part special episodes 039Time and Space Adventures039 which seem to be homages to various genres or specific shows/films Sasami is usually sidelined away from the main story except of course in her own in which she once again plays the role of 039Pretty Sammy039. It is worth noting that even in her own story she starts off as a background character only taking center stage once she has transformed. Tenchi Muyo in Love 1 amp 2: These two movies are set in the Universe continuity and Sasami039s personality remains the same. A manga companion to the second movie Tenchi Muyo in Love 2: Eternal Memory shows what was supposedly happening to Sasami 039offscreen039 and introduces Tsunamikamisama to the Universe continuity but it is unknown if this is an official account to be considered as taking place in the same continuity as the movie. The manga implies that Sasami amp Tenchi will one day have a child named Izumi but Sasami will die soon after her birth. However according to Sasami039s narration that was only one possible future. With every choice they make they can change their fate. It039s also told that Tenchi might not choose Sasami but she039ll still care for Tenchi the same as always. Tenchi in Tokyo: As with most of the characters Sasami039s personality became much louder than before. Her moods are more erratic given to bouts of juvenile anger and sulking. She becomes friends with Yugi before learning Yugi039s true nature but remains her friend until the end of the series. RyoOhki is also her pet in this series. source: Wikipedia
