|The Hooded Woman|
The colour of the Hooded Woman's eyes and hair is unknown (the manga shows her eyes and hair as being a light color.) She has her hair partially braided. She always wore a hood in the style common to the ancestors, underneath she wore practical leggings that allowed comfortable horse riding.
However, despite all her work on behalf of Purebloods, she also respected humans since she was born from human parents. She was controlling and dominating, enough that she was able to criticise Kaname and push him into doing things and he was compliant in her hands. However, she can seem be caring for Kaname very much.
The Vampire Hunters revere her as the woman who sacrificed herself to give them their powers, though they simultaneously feel guilt for consuming her, believing this is the cause of their 'curse'.
Her sacrifice helped create the Vampire Hunters, and in the 69th Night, Yuki observes that the Hooded Woman's presence still lingers over Vampire Hunter headquarters.
Through a series of experiments, Kaname discovers  that the only thing which can kill Purebloods is the flesh and blood of other Purebloods. Firmly against the idea of humans being harmed, and also worried that Kaname intends to sacrifice himself in the creation of anti-vampire weapons, the Hooded Woman chooses to sacrifice herself instead. She gave the humans her blood and throws her own heart into a vat of molten metal. The blood she gave the humans made them stronger, and the metal she threw her heart in is used to create the first anti-vampire weapons, including Zero Kiryu's Bloody Rose gun, and Yuki Kuran's Artemis rod. The Hooded Woman then dies in front of Kaname, exclaiming before her death that "It seems the only thing that can kill us, is ourselves." Kaname becomes distressed over her loss and is filled with remorse over his inability to protect her, worsened by his plan to use himself as the sacrifice.
During the 85th Night the furnace in which she threw her heart in, was starting to cool down, and the Hooded Woman starts to officially die. To stop herself from cooling down eternally, she starts to take back her 'children', or the hunters weapons, by using molten metal vines that came out of the ground. Zero and Yuki are at the association when this starts to happen, Yuki Kuran's Artemis rod and Zero Kiryu's Bloody Rose gun are almost taken by her. In this time she also kills Sara Shirabuki with her vines. The Hooded Woman talks to both Kaname and Yuki, telling them that she won't be destroyed without killing all the Purebloods. She then shatters after Kaname reassures her that she's already done her best after ten-thousand years, and that she can now rest in peace.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
