As Sakuya, she is more cold and calculating, acting with purpose to accomplish her goals. Her sole motivations are to rescue Sakura and get revenge on those responsible for the death of her parents. Despite Roze treating Ash as his brother, Sakuya secretly hates him, having geassed him to believe their familial relationship and secretly planning to kill him for the death of her father once her goals are achieved.

Sakuya using her Geass

Sakuya's Geass, bestowed upon her by L.L., gives her "The Power of Absolute Obedience", allowing her to plant commands within a person's mind with her voice a manner comparable to hypnosis. Activation of her Geass is visually represented by the Geass Sigil appearing over her throat. Commands dictated in this state are written into the minds of the designated targets once they hear her voice.

Her Geass is suppressed by her choker, which acts as voice changer and changes her eye color.


  • Her Geass commands utlized by voice resembles that of Rai, the Lost Colors protagonist.
  • If written in Japanese, her alias Roze (ロゼ) is Zero (ゼロ) spelled backwards.
