As beautiful as she is skilled in the game of shogi, Saori is a polite and well spoken girl. Preferring a more traditional fashion style, she is frequently seen wearing her smart school uniform. Coming from a wealthy background, she leads a privilidged life, however she resents the fact that her gender holds her back in the matches she fights so hard to win. Idolising Hani Meijin, she strives to one day beat him with her "dignified" shogi. Despite this competitive streak, Saori is not beyond romantic feelings for the man she treasures.
