Saeko Bujushima is a high school Kendo Club captain and daughter of world famous martial artist Master Bujushima. After being forced to defend herself one night against an attacker, she discovers a darker side to her. She realized that she enjoys inflicting pain upon others. Saeko's guilt towards these feelings has led her to distance herself from those she cares about. When her school gets infested with zombies, she joins their survival group. There she becomes more and more distraught as the need to fight for her and her friends’ survival allows her sadism to grow and be fulfilled.

- The Murata-tou (村田刀): A Kissaki Moroha-Zukuri-style double-edged nihonto katana made in the Tokyo Armory by General Murata (inventor of the Murata Rifle) during the Meiji Era. It was owned by Souichiro Takagi until he gave it to Saeko Busujima as a gift for protecting his daughter Saya Takagi and as an exchange for the Kendo/Iaido training that he received from Saeko's father in the past. Saeko uses this sword, in place of her bokken and the katana that Takashi found in the shrine, after receiving it from Souichiro at the Takagi Estate.
- The M92 Vertec: A variant of the Beretta 92FS line of handguns. Released in 2003, it differs from a general 92FS because it has a vertical grip, a short-reach trigger, thinner grip panels, integral accessory rail, removable front sight, and a beveled magazine well. Chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum, it usually comes with a standard 15 round magazine, or an optional 10/17/33 round magazine can be used instead.
- Bokken: A wooden sword that Saeko briefly used to fend off zombies until she left it behind in favor of a katana.
