Saaya Kawai (川合 紗綾, Kawai Saaya) is Goro Majima's hostess in Yakuza: Dead Souls. She is one of the few hostesses in the series capable of fighting, and also becomes available as an AI companion character after completing her substory.

Profile Edit

Appearance Edit

Saaya is shown to wear two outfits; a fitted pink jacket and black boots, and her usual hostess dress. Her dress falls to her knees, and is adorned with a large bow that spans across the bodice. Her reddish-brown hair comes down to her mid-back, though most of it is tied up in a messy bun and can be assumed to be longer when down.

She wears a heart-shaped necklace and a matching pair of silver earrings. Her nails are painted pale pink, likely done by herself, as she has a passion for nail-art.

Saaya displays an interest in possibly undergoing facial reconstruction surgery, expressing her distaste for her round face.

Personality Edit

Saaya is a self-professed princess, and loves to be spoiled more than anything. She prefers to stay indoors and laze around, eating pickled plums and playing with her cat Mon, who she constantly talks about, much to Majima's bafflement.

Substory Edit

In Saaya's substory, her ex-boyfriend, Shinji, steals Mon from her apartment and brings him into the quarantine zone in an attempt to force Saaya into taking him back. Majima finds him in his office in Millennium Tower and rescues Mon from him, refusing to escort him out of the quarantine zone and leaving Shinji to fend for himself.

Aw, now, don't tease me like that! Anyway, I've been working very hard to become a modern, urban woman, but I'm starting to get burnt out. Better make hay while the sun shines. -Hostess Heart Full
That don't seem like you. +Hostess Heart Full
What's wrong with bein' a country girl? +Hostess Heart Full
I wish I could handle alcohol. Then we could share a drink together. How do ya know unless ya really give it a try? -Hostess Heart Half
Ya don't need to drink. +Hostess Heart Half
Learn how to get drunk on just water. +Hostess Heart Full
But, as it turns out, the customers all say I'm the laid-back, unassertive type. I guess they don't really like that. Yeah, ya do seem kinda out of it sometimes. +Hostess Heart Half
You are who ya are. -Hostess Heart Full
Learn how to get drunk on just water. +Hostess Heart Half
My friends always tell me that it's not that my strike zone is wide. It's that I don't have any strike zone at all! What about me? -Hostess Heart Full
So you'll take any guy that comes along, huh? -Hostess Heart Quarter
Then you'll get nothin' but balls. +Hostess Heart Half
It seems like all men cheat eventually. If they do, I'd want them to at least have the decency to hide it well. I bet you'd be good at that. I ain't never been caught. +Hostess Heart Half
Wish I had a chance. +Hostess Heart Full
You kiddin'? I don't hide nothin'! +Hostess Heart Half
Come to think of it, I'm not sure why. My school yearbook is filled with pictures of us wearing helmets. I couldn't show that book to anyone! It ain't nothin' to hide. -Hostess Heart Full
I can't even imagine it. +Hostess Heart Half
What's wrong with helmets?! +Hostess Heart Full
It's a Scottish Fold, that kind with its ears bent forward. His name is Mon. He's really cute. ♡ What a waste of money. -Hostess Heart Full
I don't like pets. -Hostess Heart Quarter
I can't have a pet. +Hostess Heart Full
People tell me that all the time. But I'm completely hopeless! I even have a funny way of running, with my face thrust forward. Guess I won't invite ya out, then. +Hostess Heart Full
That's 'cause yer always inside. -Hostess Heart Full
I'm the same way. +Hostess Heart Half
People often tell me I have pretty hands, especially men with finger fetishes. ♡ I ain't got no weird fetishes like that. +Hostess Heart Half
My best feature is my hairstyle. +Hostess Heart Full
Bein' popular with the pervs makes ya happy? -Hostess Heart Full
But I'm up front with them from the beginning. I tell them I won't accept their invitation if there are strings attached. Well, I guess I'm different, then. -Hostess Heart Full
I don't want no strings, either. +Hostess Heart Full
Ya sure are stubborn. +Hostess Heart Half
No, I haven't given a key to anyone, not even my parents. That's why I think it's a ghost. Hell Yeah! That's right up my alley! -Hostess Heart Quarter
What's the big deal? -Hostess Heart Full
Maybe you're just tired. +Hostess Heart Full
He cheated on me. I found a long hair in the bed. He could've at least had the decency to be discreet! Don't worry. You'll meet somebody. +Hostess Heart Half
That guy was an idiot. -Hostess Heart Full
Forty billion ain't such a big deal. +Hostess Heart Half
What should I do? I'm so scared, I'm starting to hate to go home! Ya must be walkin' in yer sleep. -Hostess Heart Quarter
Sounds like ya need an exorcism. -Hostess Heart Quarter
Gotta be the work of a livin', breathin' person. +Hostess Heart Full
And I'm scared to go back to my apartment these days. And if I can't find a nice man here in Tokyo, maybe I'd better look for one in Gunma. That's too bad. +Hostess Heart Full
But you've got yer cat. -Hostess Heart Quarter
Maybe ya just ain't a city girl. -Hostess Heart Quarter
You think so? What would you do if I ever dumped you, Mr. Majima? I'd try to be a better man. +Hostess Heart Full
I'd deal with it, and move on. -Hostess Heart Quarter
We could still be friends. -Hostess Heart Quarter
You never know when you're going to die, right? I want to try as many different foods as I can before then! What a waste of food! -Hostess Heart Full
How can ya even appreciate how the food tastes? +Hostess Heart Half
I can't believe ya stay so skinny +Hostess Heart Half
That's why I don't want a really rich man. I just want a man that's a little rich, someone who can buy me a little luxuries here and there A man's gotta be strong +Hostess Heart Half
You're still just a spoiled little girl -Hostess Heart Full
Well, I ain't gonna give ya nothin' +Hostess Heart Full
Of course! Meat and potato stew is my specialty. What a cliche +Hostess Heart Half
Ya can't stay inside all day! +Hostess Heart Full
I bet I'd gain weight if we were datin' -Hostess Heart Full
Glasses and contact lenses aren't cheap, so I decided to go ahead and get the surgery, and I'm so glad I did! What kind of surgery is it? -Hostess Heart Quarter
I don't need that. -Hostess Heart Quarter
Does it work for farsightedness, too? -Hostess Heart Half
I wasn't really thinking about doing it professionally. I just want to be able to do it for my friends and family. What's the point if you ain't gonna make money? -Hostess Heart Quarter
Do my nails, too +Hostess Heart Full
How givin' of ya. -Hostess Heart Quarter
I munch on crunchy pickled plums and watch the TV shows I recorded, and I'm in seventh heaven! ♡ Ya sound like a middle-aged man. -Hostess Heart Half
That's all you need, huh? -Hostess Heart Quarter
Yeah, plums are the best when you're beat. +Hostess Heart Full

Saaya's Emails Edit

Big Thanks! Edit

Thanks for requesting me today, Mr. Majima! ♡ I'm gonna do my best to be the girl of your dreams. I hope you'll look out for me, I won't let you down. ♡

Just you wait and see! (*´ω`*)

Don't count on me too much.
I'll come see you sometime.
If you wanna talk, call me. +Hostess Heart Half

Wow! Edit

What a day! It turned out three of my regulars all had their birthdays today! 🍰 I was crazy busy. 😿 I guess I'm a popular girl!? Whew, I'm exhausted!

Think I'll head to bed soon. 🌃

How does that make you popular?
I ain't goin' there when it's my birthday. +Hostess Heart Half
Get to bed, then!

Ghosts? Edit

Hey there! There was a show on TV 📺 about ghosts just now. I ended up watching it. Do you think ghosts are real? 💀 You know, come to think of it, my cat Mon sometimes screeches real loud for no good reason. Maybe Mon can see things I can't?

(´ ・ω・`) Ugh, that'd be scary.

That cat definitely has a sixth sense. +Hostess Heart Half
It's all in your head.
You're spooky enough as it is.

I'm in love ♪ Edit

I'm giving tender kisses to my darling right now!
I bought him a new feather teaser and we're playing with it together. EmailEmoji Heart
Mon is the cutest little kitty cat in the world. 😸
Did I make you jealous!?
I really love my cat!
What the hell?! Don't scare me like that! +Hostess Heart Half
Poor little bastard, that cat.
You oughta get out more.

I'm feeling lonely... Edit

Mon caught a cold, so he has to stay at the vet overnight. 😾 I'm lonely at night by myself. I don't think I'll get any sleep tonight, so we can talk until morning. 📱 Hope to hear your voice soon.

See ya later, alligator. (* ̄▽ ̄)ノ~~💕

Just make sure you stay healthy.
Yeah, I could talk until morning.
Is Mon gonna be all right? +Hostess Heart Half
