Yuuki's dorm-mate and best friend since junior high, Yuuki often refers to her as Yori-chan. Yori seems to be one of the few girls who is not interested in the Night Class. She finds them a bit scary and stated that she would prefer someone from the day class. Yori is also very observant, as she notices a lot of things that happen to Yuuki, especially when she gets hurt or is very depressed.
Yori's part in the story is relatively small. She spends a lot of time worried about Yuki not geting enough sleep and having nightmares. She teases Yuki when Ichiru reveals that Zero has feelings for Yuki and confirms Yori's suspicions, although the whole matter isn't clear to Yuki. Yori finds out that Yuki is a vampire after Aido protected her from a Level D vampire, who served Rido. Despite that fact, Yori still accepts Yuki and appeared to be more worried over the fact that she would lose her best friend. Because of the recent events at Cross Academy, she is taken to a safe place by Aidou on Kaname's orders.
After the attack
After the attack is over, she defends Aido when the other day class girls are afraid of him. Yori is one of the only day class students that know about vampire's existence, she now has a deeper friendship with Zero Kiryuu, even to be thought as Zero's girlfriend by Kaito. Kaito helps Yori to go to the vampire ball, having her stow away in his suitcase, which Zero freaks when she appears at the ball. Kaito and Zero promise to keep an eye on her while she goes find her best friend, Yuuki Kuran.
Yori and Yuuki in the end
Yori was surprised after seeing Yuki in her vampire form. At that time, Yuki did not fully finish her transformation, and the only visible change in her was the appearance of her fangs and long hair. However, when Yori sees Yuki again at the party she is astonished at the change of her best friend. Yuki, who was once the tiny day class student and the naive one, was now taller than Yori herself and was more mature.
