Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black HeartEdit
Plot Role Edit
Saori first appears when the party approaches the Legend Tree. She meets the Secretary via "lost handkerchief event", and falls in love at first sight. After a spontaneous confession, wherein Noire complains about how contrived the Legend Tree's myth is, the party is assailed by monsters.
Once they have all been defeated, Saori is suddenly dragged underground by a monster. The Secretary and Lid sneak into Generia · G's base to save her while Noire and co. create a distraction. The infiltration succeeds, and the Secretary flees with Saori back to her city while Lid regroups with Noire.
It is later revealed that Saori's Legend Tree is gathering power for an unknown reason, which is why Generia kidnapped her. The Legend Tree's power even causes Wyn to become romantically attached to her soccer ball. The party worries over the amount of power the tree is gathering, so Histoire suggests enlisting Lady Wac to absorb its power.
Once Lady Wac joins the party, they go to Saori's city to absorb the Legend Tree's power. However, Saori intercepts the party and stops them from absorbing the energy. At this point, she is already under the tree's power and is acting irrationally. She even challenges Noire to a duel for the Secretary, proclaiming that Noire's real reason for "destroying" the Tree is jealousy. The party defeats her, and the area returns to normal as the tree's powers are absorbed.
With the tree's influence gone, Saori returns to her senses. She apologizes for the trouble, and is forgiven by Wyn and Generia. She then declares that she still has feelings for the Secretary, who refuses on grounds of his duty to Noire. She decides to join the party, so that she can stay by his side.
