Izayoi is the true form of Tsubaki Yayoi and as a playable character in BlazBlue series. She is one of the four new characters in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
Izayoi is the form Tsubaki undertakes after the spell the Imperator placed on her forces her to unleash the full power of the Sealed Weapon Izayoi. The spell ends up broken by Jin, but how she is freed is not revealed. Turning away from the darkness of the past, she now takes up her sword to punish all crimes and seek out the true light. After a battle with Makoto, Tsubaki somehow regains herself once more, but feels lost as now she knows the Imperator's justice is a lie. However, with the support of Hakumen and Noel in her true form, taking up her sword once more, she decides to fight for the justice she believes in and for the friends she cherishes.
The Legacy of IzayoiEdit
- BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma (2012-2014)
Being Tsubaki's true form, Izayoi's physical appearance remains the same, with the exception of her red hair being tied into a ponytail. Her appearance is a mix of Tsubaki's former Astral Heat and her NOL uniform, her armor being a sleeveless, black, skin-tight bodysuit with a short, slender, white outfit, and white, knee-length boots. The armor bears a slight resemblance to the armor worn by the Murakumo Units, but with two shields floating around her instead of swords, and an overall less revealing outfit.
Izayoi is shown to retain Tsubaki's desire for justice, but her awakening is under a much more sinister light. She believes that the Imperator and the NOL are not to be defied, and that she is the Sword of the Imperator herself, and gives Noel Vermillion, Makoto Nanaya and Jin Kisaragi death sentences. She also refers to herself as the true light.
Once freed from the Imperator's spell, and after battling Makoto, Tsubaki becomes lost and confused because the "justice" that she has lived by her whole life was all a lie. On her journey to discover the true meaning of justice, she discards all personal biases when judging others, even her own friends.
Theme SongEditIzayoi's theme song is "Justice Sword" from BlazBlue: Chronophantasma.
