While his actual age is unknown, Sakuya is physically 15 years old. He has green hair and often wears green clothing. His eyes are red as a result of becoming a vampire. He is often seen wearing his pink headphones.
By his classmates, Sakuya is known as the class clown, as he is always making jokes and telling rumors of nearby vampires in an effort to scare his friends. The only friend who knows his true identity, however, is Mahiru.
Sakuya is shown feeling a conflicting loyalty between Mahiru and Tsubaki. He will not betray Tsubaki because he knows that Tsubaki will not betray him. Sakuya is shown to be quite upset upon finding out Mahiru had been lying to him and pretended to hate Mahiru in an attempt to get Mahiru to kill him.
In his past, Sakuya's older sister was driven to suicide by their parents, who said it was an accident in order to receive money from life insurance. Sakuya knew the truth but was forced to lie about the situation, which was also his first of many lies. Before her death, Sakuya's sister made their parents promise not to hurt Sakuya. While in his adolescence, Sakuya suffered the same fate as his sister. After this occurred, Tsubaki made Sakuya a vampire and one of his subclass.
- Unlike normal subclass, Sakuya is capable of being out in sunlight without being harmed due to being one of Tsubaki's subclass.
