Like her name, Sakura has a pair of sharp, silghtly pink-shaded eyes and her straight, dark pink (sometimes shown as dark purple) hair that reach the back of her waist. Her hair is usually seen held up with a white hairband throughout the manga, and she hardly ever styles it other ways.
When she was kidnapped by 'him' she has the same mark that 'he' has on the back of his hand tatooed on the back of her neck, which was later revealed to be for protection and safed her life. Unlike most Shounen mangas, where most of the male characters seemed to get much more appearance spotlight, Sakura is portrayed as deadly, beautiful, and in a way, kick-ass.
Sakura normally wears her school uniform, which consists of a white blouse tied with a red bow-tie around the neck, a black-plated skirt which falls above her knees, a pair of black socks reaching up to her knees and black school shoes. A yellow, long-sleeved sweater usually goes along with her top in the colder parts of the year. Other than wearing her uniform, she is also shown in pajamas, a yukata and long-sleeved track-wear.
Outwardly, Sakura is thought of as cute, delicate, elegant, pure, graceful, modest and well-mannered by boys who believe they should protect her. However, Sakura is actually a martial arts expert and combat lover.
She was supposed to be leading a normal and average high school life, until the night on the bus where she witnessed Rei Ogami, the male protagonist/anti-hero, wiping out a gang of bullies with his blue flames. From then Sakura has made it her own personal mission to prevent Oogami from killing, and has become more and more involved in the world of the Code:Breakers, and is hinted later in the series that she may be more important to that world than she seems. Sakura's ability to neutralize all Code:Breaker and Re:Code powers leads the others to call her a "Rare Kind" in subsequent chapters.
