|“||I... I'm not Yoshinon. I'm Yoshino. Yoshinon is my best friend.||”|
|Voice Actor||Nomizu Iori|
When Yoshino first appeared in the series, it was also around the time when she first encountered Shido. To Shido, Yoshino appeared to be a lost child wandering around in the rain. The next time they met, Yoshino was under attack from the AST. The third time they met was when Shido made the decision to save Yoshino from herself and from the AST, having discovered that Yoshino was an extremely kind child even towards the people who were hunting and attacking her.
After having most of her power sealed by Shido, Yoshino started living in one of <Ratatoskr>'s living quarters on Fraxinus temporarily before she moved down to the apartment complex next to Shido's home. Yoshino is currently practicing with the help from <Ratatoskr> how to speak for herself, or to be more precise, how to speak without the aid of Yoshinon in most cases.
Yoshino has the appearance of a young girl, at about 13 to 14 years of age, with blue eyes and hair, wearing a light-blue short dress under a large green raincoat with a pair of rabbit-ear hood, and holding a rabbit puppet, Yoshinon, in her left hand. The raincoat seems to have a tail with a pink ribbon attached to it. Her preferred form of clothing appears to be sun dresses along with boots that match her raincoat.
After her spirit power was sealed, the dress under her raincoat is the one she is wearing now, adding a straw hat with a ribbon attach to it and still holding Yoshinon, her puppet.
Yoshinon is a mischievous white rabbit puppet that Yoshino always holds in her left hand. Yoshinon's right eye has a black button with a brown band that resembles a eyepatch, while its left eye is a very small pink dot. He can be very annoying and sometimes Yoshino has to cover his mouth when hes speaking in the wrong moment. Yoshino looks up to Yoshinon as a role model and cries or freezes everything when he's lost or his head falls off
PersonalityEditYoshino is described as a shy yet kind little child, far more passive than the other spirits. She possesses two personalities: Yoshino and "Yoshinon." "Yoshinon" is Yoshino's other personality that appears in the form of her puppet speaking through ventriloquism, and was created to help her bear the hardships of being hunted by the AST.
At her first appearance, Yoshino is a very shy girl, unable to articulate full sentences and express herself well, as she lets Yoshinon do the talking for her with its outgoing personality. She improves after Shido seals her powers and begins learning to integrate herself into society. Later in the story, most of the time Yoshino will force herself to speak personally while conversing with Shido, instead of using Yoshinon.
