Life in Ao FamilyEdit
Yuki born as the eldest daughter of the ancient Oriental White Dragon family in east Asia region. Her father is the river god of the no longer existed Mizukawa River in Japan. As one of the relatives to the Sea Gods in Asia, Yuki has the Chinese name according to the tradition -- Ao Xue. Due to some reason the family changed their name from Chinese into Japanese.As the eldest of the Mizukawa family, Yuki is a responsible sister. She takes high care to her two younger sisters, Yue Mizukawa (優恵 水川 ) and Sakura Mizukawa (桜 水川 ). However, Yuki is a girl who is shy and hates to be alone. Hence she always sticks with her father or her sisters.
Yuki lives with her family peacefully until the urban development around the Mizukawa River destroys it. Humans destroyed the river by filling it up with soil in order to build new houses. As the local guardian, Mizukawa can do nothing to humans, hence they leave the place. The old Mizukawa lost most of his power as his guarding river has been destroyed and become frail.
However, misfortune does not give up on them. When Yuki is 16 years old in human age, a group of people who called themselves as “exorcist” accused the Mizukawa family as “evil beings” and hunting them down at all cost. During the escape, Yuki is separated from her sisters. Along with her father, she was cornered by the exorcists. Old Mizukawa protected Yuki from the exorcists’ attack and severely injured. With the heart full of fear and anger, Yuki awakened her inner demon unconsciously and killed all the pursuing exorcists. She even killed her father during the process, without her realization.
Unable to control the inner demon, Yuki expands her onslaught to the surrounding areas, murdering anyone in sight and causing chaos to the mankind. The onslaught continues for a month until a powerful exorcist (or onmyoji in Japanese) sealed the inner demon with the holy relic in the form of earring. Yuki regains her conscious after her inner demon lost control of her. She realized the sin that she had committed and hides away from the human society for a long period of time. When she heard about the Academy of Heroes, she figured out that if study in the academy could help her in controlling her power better, she can prevent herself from being overtaken by her evil self. With the thought up, she left from her hideout to the academy, disguised herself as human to avoid being hunted by human.
