Yuki, Vingança na Neve (Portuguese)
Yuki’s father and brother were murdered and her mother gang raped – when her mother was imprisoned for taking revenge against one of the gang of thieves who attacked her family, she plotted to become pregnant behind bars. Yuki’s mother did not survive the birth but Yuki was brought up by her mother’s fellow inmates, aware from an early age that she was conceived as an instrument of vengeance. Now a grown woman, Syura Yuki makes a living as a master assassin but her true purpose is to travel late 19th Century Japan – a country in social, political and technological upheaval – searching the underworld for the remaining members of the long since dispersed gang that destroyed her family and exacting the bloody revenge that her mother was unable to complete.
