Yukino Azusagawa (梓川 雪乃 Azusagawa Yukino) is the elder half-sister of Tsukino Azusagawa who finished college and she wishes to take over Pantasia as the eldest granddaughter. She is a sultry young woman who smokes cigarettes and dresses fancy and does some rather deplorable things.
Yukino hates Tsukino Azusagawa for being the daughter of Sadamichi Azusagawa's (Yukino's father) mistress. When Tsukino's mother died, she took the ashes as they were about to be placed in the Azusagawa family grave and threw them over a withered tree.
Yukino has the opposite of Solar Hands: her Blizzard Hands are naturally very cold making it ideal for making pastries such as tarts. However even with her natural advantage and Azumas natural disadvantage by having Solar hands she still lost to him.
Her reaction to eating Azuma's Loquat Tart turning her into gas, which had to be collected and stored in a blow up doll.
Unfortunately, her new doll form could not move on its own, so when the forces of Hu-pan were defeated in the sea of forest she was unable to fight against Azuma and his friends.
During the epilogue three years later Yukino is still in her gasous form trapped in the doll. Still laying perfectly still and silently in the forest, unable to leave or even move.
