Vampire Knight – Characters


Yuki Cross
The adoptive daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, Yuki is a member of the school’s disciplinary committee, which is also known as Prefect (Guardian). Ten years prior to the events of “Vampire Knight,” Yuki was attacked by a vampire, but was rescued by Kaname. She has lost all memory of her life before the attack because her mother, Juuri Kuran, used her pureblood powers to put her vampire side to sleep, and Headmaster Cross took her in as his own daughter. She, like Chairman Cross, believes that vampires and humans can live together peacefully. Yuki loves Kaname so much to the point where her heart beats like crazy and she loses her mind. She even went as far as to kiss him. She has also been giving her childhood friend Zero her blood to save him from becoming a Level E vampire. She and Kaname were raised as siblings by Yuki’s parents, Juri and Haruka Kuran, who were also siblings and heads of the Kuran line of pureblood vampires. She is also Kaname’s fiance, whom she believes to be her brother, and Kaname has yet to tell her the truth about who he is. Yuki loves Kaname who has always been protecting her and by her side during all her childhood as a human and as a vampire, but is still not sure who Zero is to her. When Rido Kuran, Yuki’s uncle, resurfaces at Cross Academy, Kaname awakens her vampiric side and pureblood powers.

Zero Kiryu
Zero’s family was killed by the pureblood vampire Shizuka Hiou. Zero was taken in by the headmaster of Cross Academy, and became a Prefect, (Guardian) alongside Yuki Cross. He has a great hatred for vampires though he is revealed to be himself a Level D due to Shizuka’s attack four years ago. He also has a younger twin brother named Ichiru who was living by Shizuka’s side. Even though Kaname killed Shizuka, Ichiru thought it was Zero and blamed him. Zero assumed that Ichiru wanted revenge but instead he wanted death so he let Zero “eat him” making Zero complete putting him at a tier of power above vampires and hunters and possibly saving him from becoming a Level E indefinitely. Zero seems to have developed feelings for Yuki, always protecting her, and almost kissing her (twice).

Kaname Kuran
A pureblood vampire, Kaname saved Yuki from an attack by another vampire when she was little. He is the class president of the Night Class, much feared and respected by the other Night Class students. While he is cold and authoritative towards his fellows in the Night Class, he is always kind and sweet to Yuki. He has shown that he cares deeply for Yuki, and loves her in a romantic sense. (He allows Zero to live because he knows his death would sadden Yuki, and because Zero is useful).He is both jealous and angry of Zero for biting Yuki and endangering her life. He has a deep love for Yuki. They are also engaged, just like Haruka and Juuri, who were married to each other as it is common for pureblood siblings to marry. It is essential to keep the bloodline pure. Also, a fact yet to be revealed to Yuki is that Kaname is not her “true brother”. He is actually the ancient ancestor of the Kurans, and Rido is his master who awakened him from his grave, making him unable to kill the man.
