History: Canon: Sasami Masaki Jurai is the second-born princess of Azusa and Misaki, two of the three rulers of the distant planet of Jurai. Along with her elder sister Ayeka and her half-brother Yosho, Sasami pretty much lived a simple life. But that all changed when she was four. Without warning, the space pirate Ryoko Hakubi, under the thrall of the criminal Kagato, attacked Jurai. As everything fell apart, Sasami seperated from her royal retainer, Mama. Running into the Royal Tree Room, she began to talk to the special trees within. That's when a Juraian battleship crashed into the room, knocking Sasami off the platform... and to her death.
Yet, death would not have her. Her body fell to the bottom, where the first tree, Tsunami, laid. The goddess within the tree sensed her waining essence and, to save her, bonded with the girl. Sasami was saved, but the girl felt that, because Tsunami saved her, she wasn't the real Sasami. For the longest time, she tried to tell Ayeka the horrible truth, but could never do so. When Ayeka decided to leave Jurai to hunt down Yosho, who had disappeared chasing after Ryoko, Tsunami urged Sasami to join Ayeka onboard her sister's ship, Ryu-Oh.. For 700 years, Sasami slept in suspended animation, until they arrived on a backwater planet named Earth. When Sasami came to, she found out that Ayeka had taken Ryoko captive and was holding another person captive as well: a young Earth boy named Tenchi Masaki. Freeing him, she told Tenchi she'd help him get off the craft if he played a game: get Ayeka's headpiece off her head. Unfortuantly, Tenchi got overzealous and tried to go after the sword hilt she'd taken away from him earlier and got chased by Ayeka's guards. As Tenchi grabbed Sasami and dragged her over to where Ryoko was being held, the girl freed the pirate and, as thanks, watched as Ryoko slammed Ryu-Oh and Ryoko's ship, Ryo-Ohki, into the waters in Japan, destroying the Seto Bridge.
Unliked Ayeka, who flailed and whined at the thought of being stranded on Earth, Sasami took to it with ease, cooking and cleaning for the inhabitants of Tenchi's house (which had gotten moved from Tokyo to the Masaki Shrine in Okiyama thanks to Ryoko's actions.) Gullible girl that she was, she fell for it when Ryoko told her that the mysterious brown egg was the love child of Tenchi and the pirate... only to go gah-gah when she discovered that it was actually an adorable cat-like rabbit, a cabbit named Ryo-Ohki. After a rainstorm left Tenchi and Ayeka stranded outside, Sasami begged Ryoko to make it stop raining (she couldn't), then had her help find the two. Soon after, the four ended up going to a small resort owned by Tenchi's aunt, only to watch as Ayeka and Ryoko tore the place apart and ended up meeting a new visitor: the Galaxy Police Officer Mihoshi Kuramitsu. That night, Sasami dreamt of Kagato returning, but kept it secret.
Sadly, that dream came true as Kagato arrived, taking Ryoko prisoner and taunting the others to follow. In the process, Tenchi was mortally wounded. Not wanting him to die, Sasami allowed Tsunami to take over and, in the process, unlocked Tenchi's true potential. With Kagato killed, the gang welcomed in another person: Ryoko and Ryo-Ohki's creator (and mother) Washu Hakubi. But, as the time passed, Sasami worried that she couldn't keep her secret of being one with Tsunami safe for much longer, especially after Washu revealed her past to the others. That time came when the gang revisted the resort and was forced to rebuild it. After Tenchi had a panic attack as he tried to fix the power at the place, he ended up crashing into the ladies' baths, he and the girls thinking that a ghost was there. When the lights came on, they saw Sasami... until Mihoshi looked at the water and gasped in shock seeing Tsunami's reflection instead. Horrified, Sasami ran, forcing the others to find her. Ryoko and Mihoshi found her first, but was stopped by Washu, who let Ayeka go first (Tenchi found that out after finding the two sisters). When Sasami was told that it didn't matter who she was, as long as she was still loved, Sasami took that as a good sign and went to hug... Tenchi. Tsunami appeared shortly after and reassured them that Sasami was the real one and that everything was fine... except Ryoko and Ayeka saw it as "Sasami becomes Tsunami, thus is a threat to their plans to win his heart."
Soon after, the gang dealt with some minor crisis, first with a set of Mass trying to attack Tenchi, leading to Ryo-Ohki to gain a humanoid form, and Dr. Clay replacing Ryoko with a duplicate in an attempt to capture Washu. Soon after, Sasami was greeted by her parents again after so long, but was shocked when Azusa decided it was time for them to return home. When Ayeka refused, Sasami refused as well... then added in that if he forced her, she'd hate him, leaving him no choice but to challenge Tenchi by having him battle Ayeka's chosen suitor, the fopish Seiryo. Thanks to Mihoshi's crashlanding, though, Tenchi won by default and the girls got to stay. Soon after, the gang was hit with a number of surprises, including meeting Tenchi's sister Tennyo, his grandmother Ari, and his "fiancee" Noike. Not long after, the group found themselves attacked by a group of Galaxy Police agents, lead by Mihoshi's brother Misao, who had believed that Tenchi was treating Mihoshi wrong. Sasami found herself captive by the leader of the strikeforce, Mashisu, who had a crush on Misao. Sasami, amazingly, defeated her and convinced her to confront Misao.
Sadly, not much would get done as Z, the true mastermind behind the attack, set off an attack that lead to the destruction of a fraction of the Earth. Z chased Tenchi, the others following suit, and when Tenchi found himself in danger thanks to another goddess, Tokimi, Tsunami stepped in, causing a fraction of the Solar System to be destroyed before Washu revealed her true self and stopped the two, making them focus on Tenchi's predictiment. As they did, another being stepped in, threatening to slay Tokimi - the Counteracter, who was actually Lady Misaki! Tenchi utilized his true battle and calmed the Counteracter, allowing Tokimi to be freed. Soon, the three goddesses began explaining their true purposes: to find the being more powerful than they... and they had found it in Tenchi. To correct the damage caused by Z, the three reset time so that Tenchi's natural growth went unaltered, but allowed Z to live a different life. Back on the reset Earth, the group watched as Misao dealt with his punishment, now caused by Noike to make sure certain future (Re: Tenchi Muyo! GXP) events occur, then to learn the truth of the death of Tenchi's mother.
Sasami would be around to greet Seina Yamada, an old friend of Tenchi's a year later when he dropped in to find out more about the cabbit in his possession, named Fuku, then, sometime later, attend Seina's wedding
Mayfield - Sasami arrived in Mayfield during the last 6 months of the place’s existence. For the most part, Sasami’s time there was quite quiet due to this, spending her time living with her Mayfield “mother” Hayate Yagami (of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha). When a “carnival” arrived in Mayfield, Sasami went to it in curiosity, only to find herself trapped in a room that knocked her out with a mysterious gas. Thankfully, she was rescued before things got worse.
As the town rallied to find a way to escape, Sasami ended up taking advantage of the town’s glitching, only to have karma hit her and leave her stuck in the places she was hiding in, forcing others to save her. Then, things got worse as everything fell apart - Zemekis’ last ditch attempt to force everyone to like Mayfield lead to his downfall and the ultimate reveal - that they were only computer facsimiles of the actual people they were based on. Even worse, the sadistic Ms. Johnson had taken control and began forcing people to murder others. Sasami was one of those, killing Hayate by strangling her before Yuki Nagato (of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) stopped her. When Mayfield fell apart and the portal to their new home opened up, Sasami was ultimately rescued by Ako Shirabe (same one that was active for awhile here) and reunited with the resurrected Hayate. With a new lease on life, Sasami would find her “family” taking some legitimacy with Hayate taking in Nozomi Yumehara and her friend Rin Natsuki with Captain Marvelous joining in with Ako.
Personality: On the outside, Sasami's easily the little sister you want to have in your house and the picture perfect vision of the perfect housewife. Sweet, adorable and lovable to a fault, Sasami is always one to put a smile on anyone's faces. She's always shown to be helpful around the house, to the point where she's almost a workaholic - she hates the idea of getting sick because if she does, that means the house might end up falling apart without her. This is mostly due to the fact that she feels that she needs to pay back for the hospitality, no matter how much they say she doesn't need to.
Despite being a sweetheart, Sasami has shown a more stern side, willing to put her foot down when needed and defend. When her father, Emperor Azusa, came to take away Sasami and her sister Ayeka, she first told him no... then said that if he forced her, she'd hate him forever. And when a Galaxy Police officer attempted to capture Sasami, she easily fought back, defeating her with ease.
As well, Sasami is also somewhat of a prankster, though this rarely rears its face. When she first appeared to Tenchi, she pranked him into trying to get Ayeka's headpiece, knowing full well that he'd pull something boneheaded like taking the sword she swiped from him. If she thinks she can get a rise out of anyone, she'll be more than happy to do this, but she's pretty much tempered down from that sort of thing.
A major aspect of her that’s been majorly altered due to the events of the game is her dual personality. Prior to the reveal, Sasami once believed that she was nothing more than a vessel for the goddess Tsunami and she feared that if others knew of it, then they’d turn away from what was essentially a dead girl. However, Ayeka and Tenchi’s reassurances of otherwise would let that lay to rest. This Sasami doesn’t have that aspect - she has come to terms with the fact that she’s not the real Sasami and wants to live her life her own way, away from being a goddess’ vessel. In fact, not counting that she has some of her Juraian aspects restored to her, she’s just a normal little girl and she quite enjoys it.
Strengths: A real sweet kid
Stern, yet caring
Really good cook
No hang ups holding her down
Weaknesses: Still a kid
Much weaker than her OVA counterpart
Can be a real brat sometimes
Has a MAJOR drive to want to help - looking at CMC-level desires here
Possessions: Special hairties - the orb-like hairties that put up her twintails double as staves, though it’s going to be tough to use those because of the lack of opposable thumbs
Knight Armor jacket (replica) - Sasami utterly looked up to Hayate during her time in Mayfield and one of her requests to her was being able to wear something like her Knight Armor. While she doesn’t wear the entire thing all of the time, she wears the poofy white and black jacket. As its a replica sowned by Hayate, there’s no magical powers tied to it.
Pony/Animal Type: Earth Pony - filly
Cutie Mark: None - she’s a blank flank!
First Person: http://alicornparty.dreamwidth.org/
Third Person: The first thing Sasami took notice of was the fact that she was in what appeared to be a countryside. A lot more backwaterish than what Betterplace ended up being. The second was that she was oddly on all fours and the attempt to get on two legs ended with her on her back. The last little bit was finding her reflection and seeing herself as a tiny horse.
“Wha…?! Wh-what’s going on?!” Sasami said, looking herself over. This was WAY too out there. Did something glitch in Betterplace?
There was something else that she could feel… a lot of freedom. “This is so strange and yet… this looks like a fun place!” A big grin formed on her face as she righted herself and started walking towards the nearest town. “I wonder if someone figured out how to finally work that machine…”
Oh, Sasami, this was more than that… a whole lot more.
