Yuki is one of only two female characters in the game, and also the only character who's not oriental. She's also very cool. Sensible, determined, and wanting mainly to stop the fighting that's going on and make Kaede and Moriya actually talk to each other, she struggles on against hardships and annoying men with swords. ^_^ I like her a lot. She's tough; she knows what she's doing and she's not afraid to do it.
Yuki weilds a Naginta, a wonderfully long reaching weapon with a curved blade on the end. She commands the powers of ice, and has an ice projectile, an icicle uppercut, and a great little ice shield that not only hits if the opponent is close enough, but will also reflect projectiles if you time it right. She also has some great combo moves, including her special, which tears her opponent several which ways and then tears them a little bit more.
In the second game, Yuki plays quite similarily, though she doesn't seem to be quite as quick as she was in the first one. She can still tear you to pieces with that wicked looking blade though.
Last Blade 1 Story: Yuki's parents died in an accident when she was young and she was adopted by the same swordsman who took in Kaede and Moriya. They became a true family to her, and took care of her when she was teased about being different. She also took up training under the swordsman, but picked up the naginta instead because she wasn't quite as strong as the other two. Life was good, until when she was 13 and their master was killed. Five years later, Yuki has finally decided to find out what really happened and to find Moriya, who she has secretly harbored feelings for all that time.
Last Blade 2 Story: Yuki travelled with Kaede to speak with Okina, where they found out about the Sealing Rite for the portal. However, as Kaede went to search for the Sealing Maiden, Yuki faced one question. That question made her and Kaede part without a word; as she set out, the necklace that had been with her since she was first adopted by GaiSei began to give off a strange light.
Useless but fun facts: Yuki's birthdate is January 23rd, 1845, making her 18 years old at the time of the first game. The kanji for her name means snow, which I think is rather approriate. ^_^
