Calling and siring
Yuki Makimura was called as a Slayer in Japan during the 18th century, and was trained by a samurai Watcher. Yuki’s Watcher failed in his duty, and, in penance, committed Seppuku. Three months after his death, Yuki went up against the Master, who killed and sired her. While most Slayers welcome death, Yuki didn’t want to die.
Upon becoming a vampire, Yuki gave her complete loyalty to the Master and served him willingly from Japan. The Watchers Council removed Yuki from their records, but failed to cover up the two missing years in the Slayer timeline.

- ―Yuki to Buffy Summers[src]
Yuki came to Sunnydale with the Eidu, a sect of blind vampires, to resurrect her sire. She planned to take revenge on Spike for killing the Anointed One and to use Alexander Harris as a vessel for resurrecting the Master. Yuki was staked by the Slayer Buffy Summers, and Dawn was able to stop the Master’s resurrection.
Behind the Scenes
- Yuki originally appeared in the non-canon series Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic, but was elevated into a canonical character thanks to a cameo appearance in the stories Tales and The Chain.
