==Biography==
==Powers and Abilities==
 
As the current host of '''{{h|Soul Eater}}''', Saya is remarkably powerful and shows great control over the Drive. Usually, the Drive is an aura which drains the life-force of everyone in her vicinity, but Saya has such control over it that she needs only touch someone to activate it. Furthermore, should she kiss someone, then she will take a person's life-force far more rapidly. Even when she was only 8, Saya's Drive was strong enough to wipe out the entirety of her clan.
{{Quote|''A sister by blood to Naoto. Unlike Naoto, who is uninterested in the Terumi bloodline, Saya takes pride in it.''<ref name="BB 10th Saya Terumi"/>}}
 
Born to the Terumi branch, Saya was given martial arts training by her mother. When she was 8 years old, the parasitic Drive, Soul Eater, latched onto her. The young girl went crazy, killing her father and every other member of the clan except her brother, Naoto. Before Saya could kill anyone else, the head of the Amanohokosaka Clan, [[Mei Amanohokosaka]], intervened and kept Saya detained for the next 5 years within the main Amanohokosaka household.
 
===Bloodedge Experience - Part 1===
Mei eventually let Saya go under the pretext of being unable to control her much longer. She gave Saya a letter for Naoto, and the young girl went to [[Shin Kawahama City]] to find her brother. She eventually arrived at her brother's flat, and the door was opened by her cousin, Haruka. Haruka left to get Naoto from the living room and the two siblings were finally reunited.<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 1, Chapter 6 - Interlude''</ref>
 
===Bloodedge Experience - Part 2===
[[File:BlazBlue Bloodedge Experience Part 2 Novel Illustration 04.jpg|thumb|left|250px|Reunited]]
Saya was invited into Naoto's apartment, and rejected Haruka's offer of black tea. She asked who [[Raquel Alucard]] was and what the contents of the letter were. As soon as Haruka left with Raquel, Saya grabbed Naoto by the throat and pushed him against a wall, telling him how desperately she wanted the Eye of the Hunter. She began to drain his life-force, but she noticed something was odd until Raquel came bursting back into the room and use her Drive to push the siblings apart. Saya drew her blade and lunged towards Raquel, drawing the [[vampire|vampire's]] blood. She learned that Naoto had already been killed once and relented on attacking again, instead leaving, claiming that she had only arrived to deliver the letter.<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 2, Chapter 7 - Siblings''</ref>


At some point, Saya ran into an [[Apostles|Apostle]] and murdered him using Soul Eater and her sword. The corpse was later found by [[Spinner Superior]].<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 2, Chapter 9 - Interference''</ref> Soon enough, Saya found [[Valkenhayn R. Hellsing]] and [[Relius Clover]], attacking the former for the "sin" of killing Naoto. The fight was grueling, although it leaned heavily in Saya's favor as she attacked with a technique that allowed her to amplify her speed and power. After several minutes had passed, however, Saya was too tired to fight, the trade-off for the technique. Even though she had activated her Drive, Saya was about to lose, only for Naoto to come to her to rescue. Before the new brawl could ensue, Spinner arrived and kidnapped Saya.<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 2, Chapter 10 - Encounter''</ref>
Saya's Drive is not her only strength, however, as she is an incredible swordswoman who wields her katana with deadly proficiency. Her strikes are fast, deliberate, and powerful, being able to land blows on both Raquel and Valkenhayn. Physically, she's strong enough to lift Naoto in the air by his throat. As a member of the Amanohokosaka Clan, she is also versed in exorcism, but is nowhere near the level of the main family. An interesting exorcist technique that Saya can employ is to vastly improve her speed and strength, allowing her to outpace and nearly defeat Valkenhayn. There is only one drawback, and that the technique will greatly tire her after three minutes. Saya is also hindered by her naturally frail body, meaning she needs to use Soul Eater regularly to keep up her strength.


As Saya had been kidnapped, she was encased in a large insect created by Spinner. The girl was unconscious, her Drive being allowed to run rampant. After a long fight, Raquel and Naoto defeated the bug and Saya was allowed free.<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 2, Chapter 11 - Fusion''</ref> The fight with Spinner, however, was not over, and in the chaos that followed, Relius and Valkenhayn kidnapped the girl. They took her back to the [[Mitsurugi Agency]] and kept her contained.<ref>''BlazBlue: Bloodedge Experience - Part 2, Outside Chapter - Fragment''</ref>
