Yumi is tomboyish, cheerful, energetic, friendly, outgoing, care-free, feisty, rebellious, short-tempered, spunky, aggressive, enthusiastic, optimistic, fun-loving, upbeat, sweet and clumsy. This attitude can make her easy to get along with people, even Rex, Bobo, Kenji and Akira. Yumi, despite being courageous and impulsive, has arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, which caused her, followed by her discovery of Noah being a spy of White Knight, to briefly lose her sanity. Yumi has a fondness of sweets.
While Yumi is very tomboyish, she has an interest on shopping. She does not seem to have much modesty as she is usually seen wearing her standard outfit, which is revealing, and sometimes other revealing outfits, such as swimsuits. She is also sometimes lovestruck, as she falls in love with handsome males, like Austin Walker and Sly, but she still has feelings for Kenji, though she does not admit it.
Yumi rarely holds a grudge or negative feelings towards an enemy. However, she does, for a short time, hold a grudge against Circe but eventually forgives her and comes to consider her an ally and a friend. She also seems to be completely against her friends when they betray her, yelling at them that she hates them, this was first seen when she finds out that Noah worked for White Knight. Despite this, she didn't show any grudge against Rex when he "joined" Van Kleiss after he revived him, she was concerned instead, not before Rex revealed that he was curing Van Kleiss. She occasionally shows compassion for her enemies, such as when she was fighting against the Sand sentinels alongside Rex and Van Kleiss.
Physical appearance Edit
Yumi is a teenage girl of japanese descent with dark brown eyes and black hair. In the beginning, she had long hair reaching down to her waist. However, when Diane arrived at Providence with permission to interview their facility for Ultimate Exposure, She cut her hair to chin-length in order to impress her.

In cold climates, she wears a magenta and pink coat with magenta cuffs in her sleeves that are similar to the ones she has on her standard armbands, her standard belt and whip and a magenta beanie with a pink little ball on top of it.
When in Cabo Luna, she wore a magenta spaghetti strap bikini.
Sometimes in missions, she wears the uniform of the Providence soilders and a shealth suit and wore her hair in a ponytail. On her belt holds her trademark whip. She also wore a stealth suit.
