Happy, humorous, high-spirited, kind and a little childish; Because of her dreamer personality, she is really naive and simple-minded. She can believe in anything that people say and is completely blind to people's malice, sarcasm or bad intentions.
She can get along with all kind of persons, from the ones high-spirited as her to those that has a serious and reserved mind.
Incredibly outgoing, minorin lacks shyness, She has a serious problem with following some rules, especially those that differentiate people by their social status. To her, every living being is equal.
She can't stand seeing someone isolated or driven into solitude, she'll always talk to them and do what she can to bring a smile to its face.
With a dreamer/childish mind, minorin has lots of plans about marrying a prince and having her own family, however, she wants to live in a peaceful place, with a simple hause, surrounded by nature. That's just one, of the many dreams minorin holds.
She was an ordinary collegial, and lived at Okinawa, Japan.
Her mother, Sasagawa Ame, died when she gave birth to her brother, Sasagawa Shota, when Minorin was just 11.
Her Father, Sasagawa Daichi was a renowned scientist, and already gave lots of interviews and lectures about parallel words, and time and space. Daichi was a very busy man, He was one of the most importand minds in japan, so he always spent most of his time locked in his lab, while the maids and servants took care of his children, Minorin and the little Shota.
Before her Mother's death, her father was quite present in her childhood. It's because of Daichi that minorin loves the starts and the night sky, he had a big telescope, and almost every single night he took his daughter to his lab to watch the stars, and told her lots of histories about time and space.
After Ame's death, her father became obsessed with his work, he kept working and studying day and night, the only time that minorin had the chance to see her father face, was when he left his lab to get some coffe, and smoke. In that little time together, he always talked with minorin about tons of things that he already realized in his life, even if she was only 11, she could understand perfecly her beloved father's words, and cheerish them, as she looked deep into his tired eyes, full of dark circles, he said to her "Sometimes you will be driven into darkness...but don't forget, When it's dark enough...you can see stars", after saying that, he walks slowly back to his lab once again.
One day, she runned at the kitchen, in the same timing as her father usually goes to drink his coffee, every single night. She waited for him, but in that night, he didn't came....
She was the one that found her father dead in his lab, at first she thought that he was sleeping, but when she realized that he wasn't breathing, she entered in a shock state. The servants of the hause was panicking, they took her alway from her father lab. Minorin didn't said a word, her green eyes was widened as the tears slowly fell through her cheeks. Even a 11 year child could understand what happened, she could understand that she would never see her father again. She didn't shouted, she didn't make a scene...she just let her tears fall down, like shooting stars.
Her aunt took care of her and her little brother for years, when minorin was 16 she found a job, even if she didn't needed it, because of her father patrimony, she wanted to be independant, so she can raise her brother into a fine man.
In school she had tons of friends, she was quite easy to get along. A devoted and smart studant, people said that they couldn't expect less from the daughter of the scientist Sasagawa Daichi.
Since her father death, it was her that "raised" her brother, she loved him too much, he was the only one that was left.
How she died
Minorin died incredibly young, with 17 years old.
She was in a park at night with her brother, he was only 6 years old. She left her brother playing to buy him some icecream. When she came back, she saw Shota walking in the direction of a stray cat, in the middle of the street, he was about to be hit by a runaway car, but she managed to hug and shield him. Her brother was miraculously unscathed, but because of her petite stature, minorin got several major wounds.
Shota panicked and cried alot, as people surrounded the place, Minorin tried to catch her breath, as she smiled and caressed her brother hair, it was green, just like hers, actually, he locked like her twin. She smiled at him and pointed at the sky "You...said that i looked like a star...right...shota?" her brother sobbed and noded, hearing his sister's last words, "....When...When it's dark enough...you can see stars..." She smiled warmly at him as her eyes slowly closed, and her light left her body.
Soul Society/Rukongai District
In the beginning, minorin isolated herself, she was confused...and concerned about Shota. Unlike many others that has gotten to Soul Society, Minorin kept her memories about her lifetime.
She was found by a old woman, Called Sakata Ame. That coincidentally had the same name as her mother, the woman took her to its home.
The woman house was very simple and small, full of hand-made dolls of all sizes and types. At first minorin was scared, people in Rukongai were not blood-related, but they treated each other as if they were family. In one week minorin was already used to her new life, she already smiled and helped the old woman with house affairs. But every single night, she always gave a thought to her brother, concerned about him.
Ame told minorin lots of histories about Soul Society, About hollows and shinigamis. She also told that a little girl, about the same age as minorin, used to live with her, but the girl had amnesia so she gave her a name, Sakata Miyabi.
Apparently Miyabi now lives in sereitei as a shinigami. But she comes to visit her one time per month, to give her money or ask if she needed something.
One day, Miyabi came to visit as usual. She treated Ame as if she was her true mother. Miyabi was a beautiful woman now, she had long pink hair, and amazing reddish eyes. Minorin tried to hide and watch the woman from distance, as Ame told miyabi everything about her. Before miyabi left, she looked in the direction where minorin was hiden, and said that if she don't want to be driven into emptness, she must find her purpose of living.
Miyabi's words was completely right, She was living at rukongai, she tried to get used to her new life, She was happy, but she didn't felt complete at that place...
Soul Society/ Shin'ō Academy
After 2 months, Minorin decided to join the Shin'ō Academy, she failed one time. But in the second try she proved herself capable of join the Academy, She was choosen by the Divine Beast "Ookami", Guardian of the Forest, and given her Zanpakutő "Mori no Shugosha".
Minorin was Fast and smart, and she had an amazing power of persuasion. She always aimed join the Onmitsukidő, so she could find her inspiration, The Detention Unit Commander, Sakata Miyabi.
She wasn't a genious, or "Tensai" as some say. But she had courage and perseverance to stay strong and achieve her goal.
Soul Society/ Onmitsukidő
She managed to join the onmitsukidő Detention Unit 3rd seat. She was trained by Miyabi, that taught her what means to be a member of the Detention Unit.
Her task was to investigate, apprehend, and keep any dangerous elements sealed away from the rest of Soul Society in "Ujimushi no Su", a underground prison, under the supervision of the third corps.
Miyabi is like a idol to minorin.
When she first met Miyabi, she was a little scared, miyabi's appearance was really pretty, but she felt that her eyes showed no glow, it was empty.
Interested in the pink-haired shinigami, minorin followed miyabi, she wanted to know more about her, and try to bring a smile to her face.
After she joins the Detention Unit, due her persistance, she became really close to miyabi, and the only person that she could trust and talk to.
"Phantom Thief" Kaitou
She met Kaitou when she followed Miyabi, to know her idol's lover, the Captain of Division 7 Fukurou Hisame. But together with hisame was his Lieutenant Kaitou, that immediately teased minorin about her size. Pissed at him, she nicknamed him as "Daimao" or "Demon King". Daimao was the antagonist of an fairy tale that her father, Sasagawa Daichi told her. She argued with him alot, after all to a member of the Detention Unit, socialize with a thief was unacceptable.
One day she challenged him, saying that she didn't had anything for him to steal, When around kaitou, minorin can be one hell of a tsundere. What she didn't expected, was that the phantam thief would steal her first kiss from her.
Her relationship with him is quite funny, and his personality is completely opposite to hers;
After tons of fightings, Minorin grown interested in learning more about the Phantom Thief, and eventually fell for his dark personality.
When she first saw Zabuza she immediatly remebered of her little brother Shota. She tought that probably shota is already a fine man, exactly like Zabuza.
