Powers and Abilities
Saki's fighting style is called "Dai kesho" which translates into "Large inheritance". Her fighting style involves the use of a long lance and a short dagger in unison and a variety of moves. Her lance has a long reach & deal a quite large amount of damage. It is very useful should opponents are trying to keep their distance from her. The drawback of the lance, however, is that its weight makes it attacks slow. Should an opponent manage to dodge an attack, Saki is vulnerable to counter attacks. Contradicting with the lance, the dagger has a very short range and deals only with a small amount of damage, but the speed of the attacks is lightning fast. She also has charge attacks that are hard to perform but deal a large amount of damage. Most of Saki's moves also have high chances to do ring outs.
Overall, she is considered as a high-to-top tier character.
Jōshōmaru & Teishutsu no Tanken
"Jōshō" means "Ascension" and "Teishutsu" means "Submission". Joshomaru is a long, dark blue lance. The tip of the lance has three edges, and the symbol of the Kizashi clan is drawn on a flag attached to the lance's handle. The Teishutsu dagger looks like a normal dagger with carved writings on it, but it is actually a sacred treasure of the Kizashi clan. It has the ability to seal the soul of anyone whose heart is stabbed by the dagger by chanting a certain spell. The said spell is the writing that was carved to the blade and only a descendant of the Kizashi clan can read it.
