Sakura's History:
Sakura's father was a Japanese businessman that started an electronics company in the United States. Hattori electronics became a very successful company with her father holding the majority of shares and is now one of the largest electronic companies in America. He left Japan because of rivals in the Red Dragon ninja clan. He started, along with his electronic company, a new ninja clan that he named the Green Dragons. He married and started a family once the company was successful. Sakura was his only child because his wife died two years after Sakura was born in a automobile accident with a drunk driver. Besides this, Sakura had a fairly normal childhood. From an early age, Sakura was both trained to be able to inherit her fathers company and trained in the ways of a ninja. When she graduated from high school she joined the army reserve to give her some military experience. After completing basic training she went to college to learn foreign languages and took many flight lessons. Dark day came and the world changed. Even ninjas can be caught unaware, a secondary vampire under orders from his master caught her and started the process of turning her into a vampire. He savored the control of her and her fear waiting till dawn of the third day to turn her to give her the final bite. Too his surprise she grabbed him and jumped through her window with him into the sunlight expecting both him and her to vaporize. He vaporized but she did not. She did this to die along with him but this is not what happenAfter suffering in pain for a while but not dying she came into her house and went to sleep. She has since that day hunted down the master vampire that wanted her as his bride, killed him, and has killed in addition seven other secondary vampires. She gets most of her blood from guys that just think she is kinky.
