How Yagyu joined the Tourney
Yagyu came from an average shinobi family and had a strong relationship with her younger sister Nozomi, who suddenly, without warning, died in a traffic accident. Yagyu was deeply hurt by the event and the solitude that came with it, but she knew (and feared) that over time, the loss of her sister would would eventually fade from her memory.
As a means her never forgetting her younger sister, Yagyu dons an eyepatch crafted from her ribbon, cutting her vision and acting as a permanent reminder of her.
Upon her arrive at Hanzo Academy, she came across Hibari, who had such a striking resemblance to Nozomi that she had almost believed she had come back to her. Hibari's cheerful nature quickly overpowered Yagyu and the two quickly became friends, with Yagyu adopting an older sister role with her, always showing concern for her and being protective of her.
Although she will not admit it, Yagyu could never live in true solitude, and Hibari would soon became the primary reason she opens herself up to others, namely the rest of her class.
while preparing for the Hanzo Academy Winter Festival, she spotted a female theatre troupe being led by Olivia. She offered her to join the festival for an attraction.
