Akari Taiyo is the main character and the lead protagonist of Day Break Illusions. She is a 12-year old girl, who is the successor of the Sun Card, a card which is part of the Elemental Tarot cards in which users use to fight the Daemonia, which she had inherited from her late mother, Hinata Taiyo.
Akari was born to Hinata and an unknown man, who was said to have become possessed by Daeomonia. When her mother died at the age of 10, she lived with her aunt, uncle, and their daughter, Fuyuna, who was around the same age as Akari.
Akari is a very bubbly character who shines brighter than the sun, she is often smiling and in a upbeat mood. She can also be passionate if she truly believes in something/someone and easily changes someone's emotion with a simple smile, she is loved by many and considered the shining sun of Sephiro Fiore.
2nd Anniversary of Hinata's deathEdit
The 2nd anniversary of Hinata Taiyo's death occured in Episode 1, the pilot episode of Day Break Illusions. This was also the day where Akari had her last interactions with Fuyuna.
Akari, her aunt, her uncle, and Fuyuna are seen going to the grave where Hinata is buried. The four of them mourn for Hinata and lay flowers at her grave. They then leave, after a few minutes of mourning.
That night, Akari notices the plants being usual and discovers a monster in her bedroom. She is dragged by the monster and can hear its voice, but it is soon cut off when Akari sees herself defeating it in a different form. However, after that, she discovers Fuyuna dead, with blood covered all over the floor, with Akari crying and screaming at what she sees.
The incident which happened with Fuyuna is what leads Akari to try and figure out how people are affected by the Daemonia, through hearing his or her voice and listening to it. This event is also seen again in Episodes 12 and 13 and is mentioned several times throughout the series by Akari.
