Major Tsubaki Yayoi (ツバキ＝ヤヨイ) is a soldier of the Novus Orbis Librarium and the heiress to the Duodecim's Yayoi family. She wields the Sealed Weapon Izayoi and is very close to Jin Kisaragi, Noel Vermillion, and Makoto Nanaya. To Tsubaki, Jin means everything, and she strives to bring justice to the world.
Steadfast and an organizer of people, she is beloved because she never fails to consider those around her. However, she can be too serious and has a tendency towards stubbornness, so there are times when she's unable to adapt.
Powers & Techniques
The next head of the Yayoi Family of the Duodecim. She is a member of the Zero Squadron, Wings of Justice – the squadron in charge of policing internal affairs of the NOL.
Though she was born into a prestigious family, she doesn’t flaunt her status. She excels in both the literary and martial arts, is reliable and takes matters seriously; although, some might say she’s too inflexible when it comes to rules.
Jin and her are childhood friends, and she meets Noel and Makoto in the Military Academy. Despite her enlisting in to the services, she herself does not like fighting and believes her efforts will help establish order, which will eliminate war. For that cause, she is ready to soak her hands in blood.
Tsubaki receives the order from commander in chief of the NOL, the Imperator, to terminate her best friends Jin and Noel for desertion. Her heart still torn, she takes her family heirloom, the Izayoi, and reluctantly heads to Kagutsuchi.
Tsubaki tries to reason with her friends, but is instead consumed by her jealousy for Noel, falling victim to Hazama’s scheme. When she hits rock bottom and is blinded by her path, she is saved by the Imperator. Her loyalty becomes even stronger.
She heads to the Coliseum to capture Ragna, but is intercepted by Jin, Noel, and Makoto. The three of them help her realize her true feelings, breaking Tsubaki free of the Imperator’s curse.
