Saya Otonashi (音無小夜, Otonashi Saya) is the main protagonist of the series Blood+ and the first born of the daughters of the Chiropteran Mummy. She is a pure blooded Chiropteran queen and Diva's older twin sister as well as Hagi's lover.
Saya at first seems to be a happy, normal high school girl, who enjoys life and cares for the people around her. This dramatic change in the character is explained as the movie is set a few months before the start of the Vietnam War and Blood is set in present day and Saya has no memory of her life before a few years ago. During the first few episodes Saya learns that she is not like everybody else and that she is the only person alive who can kill the Chiropteran monsters. Horrified and scared by this revelation Saya is initially reluctant to fight and is afraid that uncovering the secrets of her past will bring her more pain and misery. Both Hagi and David know the truth about her but they both decide it is best for Saya to uncover the truth herself. As the series progresses she learns more about herself and accepts her mission to destroy the Chiropteran and towards the very end of the series she is more like she was in The Last Vampire, cold and non-talkative, choosing only to focus on her mission.
She is a skilled athlete and fighter and her katana is specially made with an edge she can touch that draws blood from her hand and distributes it across the length of the blade. We eventually learn that it is Saya's blood that gives her the power to kill the Chiropterans.
