|“||You are the wind at my back and the sword at my side. Together, my love, we shall build a peaceful world... just you and me.||”|
–Saori, to Issei
Saori's role is to enforce and strengthen the powers of those gifted with Sacred Gears with the Tempered Gear, which harbors the soul of Arpeggio, her creator. For unknown reasons, she is heavily infatuated with Issei Hyoudou, much to the chagrin of those who harbor feelings for him as well.
Saori has pale white hair, and unusually pale skin, dressed in traditional old clothing with a shawl. Though a doll, her features are uncanny to that of a human, sans her hands, which resemble those of a mannequins.
Soft-spoken, gentle, kind, Saori is a being who knows only kindness and love, caring for those who wander into the iDOL Sphere. She tends to come off as perhaps a bit clueless in regards to others, but she cares deeply about others. Issei, in particular. For unknown reasons, she is deeply infatuated with him, and very loyal. When speaking to him, she is respectful, and affectionate, and completely oblivious to the anger directed at her as a result. She also openly calls him her "love."
"Greetings to you... I am Saori. Tell me, what is it you desire?"
"You needn't be so formal, my love... After all, I live to serve you, and those like you." (to Issei)
- Both Saori's role in the story, and appearance are based off of The Doll, a character from the game, Bloodborne.
