She then douses herself in gasoline and attempts to set herself on fire until firefighters tackle her to the ground.[1] She succeeds in burning herself to death. Saitō later reveals that she was not his biological mother, but was his step-mother, however Yu is unaware of this.[2]

This experience had affected Yu, as he cries about it to Mahiru while being held captive by the Hyakuya Sect.[4] Asuramaru later uses this memory to terrorize him in a nightmare.[3]

Hyakuya Orphanage

Mikaela Hyakuya

Mikaela Hyakuya is Yūichirō's best friend and "family" since they were eight years old. Yu calls Mika by his shortened nickname, "Mika". Mika immediately welcomed Yu into their family when he was dropped off at the orphanage.[5] Yu initially refused Mika's friendship and even challenged him to a fight which lead to him getting beaten by Mika.[6] Even after that, Mika brought Yu into the family, and even related his parental abuse.[7]

After the virus killed the orphanage director and the vampires took custody of the Hyakuya Orphans, Mika and Yu looked after the younger orphans, eventually creating Yu's "family." Yu and Mika once discussed what they would do if they left the vampires' city, Yu saying that he would like to go to paradise and Mika then smiling and saying that he should work hard, leaving Yu confused.[8] Later, it reveals that Mika had been going into the 7th Progenitor's (Ferid Bathory's) home to offer his blood in order to steal a map and gun to escape.[9]

Mika convinced Yu and the rest of the orphanage children to come with him to escape the city through the Ferid Bathory's house, but is killed while doing so.[10] Yu was the only survivor and was haunted by his family due to him running away after they were slaughtered.[11]

It turned out that Yu was, in fact, not the only survivor, when Queen Krul saved and converted him into a vampire.[12][13] However, he refused to become a complete vampire and subsisted on Krul's blood to keep his thirst at bay.[14]

After Yu joined the Moon Demon Company, he met Mika once more after he tried to kill him from behind after discovering that a vampire wanted to take one of his comrades. However, when he realized that it was Mika he stabbed, he pulled out immediately and was in complete shock and confusion.[15] After realizing that Mika was converted, he retreated back with the Moon Demon Company and searched for ways to turn a vampire back into a human.[16]

Mika saw Yu once more on the battlefield after forcing information out of a soldier (Aiko Aihara) about Yu's location.[17] However, he spotted Yu unconscious after his battle with Crowley, and thought it to be the humans' doing.[18] He immediately rushed ahead to take Yu from his group, but got severely injured while doing so.[19] When he was about to die, the Shinoa Squad squad defended him while he took Yu away.[20]

Yu hugging Mika (Seraph of the End ep22)

After Yu woke up, he saw how thirsty Mika was even after Krul's blood, and encouraged him to drink his own.[21] Mika put up a fight against it, protesting all the way through, but he gave up after Yu claimed that he could not live if he watched his family die once more.[22] After he finally drank Yu's blood, his eyes turned from blue to red, signaling that he has finally become a true vampire.[23]

Mika's seemingly only reason to live was Yu, and would go to any depths to protect him, even if it meant holding a sword to his throat.[24] Yu felt the same about Mika, but had a larger family he must protect and begged Mika to accept his new family.[25]

Akane Hyakuya

As children, Yu was not the kindest to her, and denied when she said that they're all apart of the same family.[26] When she died, Yu was very saddened over her death along with Mika and the other orphans.[11] He was completely enraged and even started to go berserk with his demon once Ferid showed him her decapitated head in a jar.[27] Later in Ferid's mansion, before going downstairs to see the encased corpses of his family, Yu told Yoichi he'll carry Akane's head.[28] Once given to him, he then apologized to her for never calling her "family" and running away.[29] At Guren's mansion, he says that once he brings back Akane and the other children, he says next time, he'll say they are family.[30]

He is able to convince her to help him save Mika, and they hold hands.[36] Yu shows guilt once he learns that he nearly killed Shinoa during his transformation at Shinjuku.[37] He saves Shinoa before Kureto kills her on Nagoya Airport.[38] Shikama Doji later reveals to Yu that she is in love with him[39] and tries to save her from his grasp, ignoring Asuramaru's warning.[40] He is devastated after seeing her in a comatose state to the point of ignoring his status as a former soldier and being experimented on by Kureto's order, as long as Shinoa is saved.[41]
