Don't worry too much about them but take it into account.
|Affiliation||Asai Asakura House, JAPAN|
|Appeared in||Sengoku Rance|
Yukihime is daughter of Asakura Yoshikage. She respects her father and inherits everything he ever taught to her. Due to her immaculate beauty and kindness, she is well-known not only within Asai-Asakura's territory, but throughout all of JAPAN.
In response to Oda's expansion, Asakura Yoshikage sent a messenger to offer a reconciliation. Rance, the secret ruler of Oda, doesn't seem to really like the idea, though his attention is soon distracted into the rumored beauty of Asai-Asakura who is pleading the offer along with the messenger, Yukihime. Without wasting any time, Rance groped Yukihime's breasts, thus angering the messenger. This is the trigger for Asai-Asakura to declare war against Oda.
Eventually, led by Rance, the Oda house was able to vanquish the Asai-Asakura house. Rance then proceeded to rape Yukihime in front of her father's very own eyes.
Afterwards, she tried hard to enlist the help of the other factions to restore the house to its former glory, even trying to use her own body as a bargaining chip. However, this didn't pan out and she was eventually captured by bandits, dying a tragic death having fallen from her previous grace.
She cannot be recruited in the first playthrough and will inevitably meet her bad ending. But in carryover playthroughs she can be recruited and saved from the cruel fate.
In Rance X, it is confirmed that she survived the events in Sengoku Rance, and doesn't hold a grudge against Rance anymore, probably indicating that her good ending in Sengoku Rance was deemed the canonical one.
- Yukihime's first name is pronounced the same as the first names of La Saizel's Apostle Yuki, who makes an appearance in Rance VI and Yuki Del from Rance I, Rance 01 and Rance 5D. However in Japanese, the Yuki in Yukihime is spelled with the kanji 雪 while Apostle Yuki and Yuki Del are both spelled in katakana as ユキ.
