Akiza Izinski (originally known as Aki Izayoi in the Japanese version) is one of the main characters from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, and one of the Signers.

Akiza possesses a "special power" which sets her apart from that rest of humanity, and even the rest of the Signers. This power appears to be a form of ESP; it is referred to as "psychic power". It is activated only by sadness and anguish. This ironically has caused Aki a lot of sorrow, effectively fueling itself. She is noted to call it a "wretched mark." Akiza has very large breasts, which has lead to constant editing by 4Kids TV entertainment.

Akiza is able to materialize Duel Monsters as reality and the effects of her Spell and Trap Cards are real too. These elements combined liken any duel in which Aki participates to a Shadow Game.

Akiza was highly unstable and violent in season 1 before she learned to control her powers. Due to her mysterious powers, she was called a "witch" and a "freak". These occurrences only served to separate her even further from the rest of humanity and helped fuel her special ability. This is further proven when she took the persona alias "Black Rose" (known as "Black Rose Witch" in the Original version) so as to intimidate her dueling opponents. Clad in a dark hood and pale mask, the Black Rose Witch was an urban legend in New Domino City, feared and known for exterminating all who challenge her.

History

In her youth, Akiza was a sweet girl who loved her father, Hideo, but because of the nature of his work was unable to spend much time with him. On her birthday, she telephones to her father, who has to work, and she tells him to come home to celebrate her birthday. He tells her that he will come, but he can't because he must work. Later he comes home, and Akiza is sleeping next to her birthday cake and had cryied before. He feels sorry for Akiza and duel to her later for not coming at her birthday because Akiza desired that so much. During a friendly duel with her father Hideo, he receives a call from work, which pushes Akiza and awakens her "Signer" powers. Akiza later attended a Duel Academy as a young teenager, where she inadvertently caused more accidents due to the instability of her special powers. As her classmates and family came to fear her, she became more isolated, and acquired the persona of "The Black Rose". Akiza was later found by Divine, a mysterious looking man who had a profound interest in Akiza and her powers.

Fortune Cup

Her first appearance in the series occurred when Leo and Dexter decided to challenge the Black Rose to a duel. "The Black Rose" appeared, and noticed Yusei Fudo and his Dragon's Birthmark. She sees Yusei as a challenge since she knows he possesses a mark like hers, calling the mark "wretched." Akiza is a participant of the Fortune Cup and faces Jill de Lancebow as her first opponent. She wins the Duel with her signature card "Black Rose Dragon" and is then exposed as the feared "Black Rose", per Lazar's and Rex Goodwin's intention. They also wanted Lancebow to expose her as a Signer, however even though she used her powers in the Duel, Akutsu's D-Tector didn't receive a reading.

Akiza's next opponent in the Fortune Cup for the second round is the Duel Profiler, Kodo Kinomiya, a mysterious man who attempts to confuse and manipulate her with tragic insights from her dark past. After being pushed to her psychological limits by Kodo, Akiza loses control as her mark is revealed which makes her more unstable than usual. Akiza is victorious and moves on to the final round where she faces Yusei. After her first attack against Yusei becomes reality, he angrily exclaims that she enjoys inflicting pain on others. With a slightly insane smile, Akiza replies that she is "The Black Rose", a fearful lady who finds pleasure in others pain, but Yusei knows that her hidden emotion is something else. Yusei ends up defeating Akiza in the end. Akiza is then taken away from the scene by Divine. When the Crimson Dragon appeared in the middle of Yusei's and Jack's duel, it showed Akiza, Yusei, Jack, and Luna has a vision of the Satellite area being destroyed by a mysterious spider drawing which looks like the spider drawings of the Nazca lines.

Dark Signers

Before Yusei's confrontation with Kalin, his birthmark begins to react inside of the B.A.D area. This triggers Akiza, Luna, and Jack's birthmarks as well. Akiza instinctively senses that she is responsible for the reaction and knows that it is related to the vision they witnessed during the Fortune Cup. Leo goes in search of her for her aid in fighting the Dark Signers, but he, along with Luna are kidnapped by Divine. While looking for Divine, who had gotten involved in a duel against Carly, she encounters Misty, who reveals herself as a Dark Signer. She challenges Akiza to a duel as revenge for her brother Toby, whom Akiza apparently killed. In the middle of their duel, Akiza witnesses the top floor being destroyed and Divine falling to his doom, which shocked her. The effects of his duel had made the building unstable and its collapse prematurely ends their duel. She is found unconscious by Jack and is taken to a hospital. She recovers, but the recent events has caused her to shut off her heart to others. When her parents wish for someone to wake her, Jack recommends that Hideo goes to ask Yusei for help. Yusei agrees tries to reason with her, but Akiza decides to duel him instead.

During the duel, her powers go berserk and almost kill her father, but her awakened desire to save him allowed her to control her powers for the first time. She accepts her parents and decides to become friends with Yusei. Later, Mina shows her the true objectives of the Arcadia Movement, experimenting on missing children to form super soldiers. Despite knowing this, she still regards Divine as an important person in her life. She currently stays at Goodwin's place along with Yusei, Jack, Luna and Leo. As a Signer, she decides that it is her responsibility to fight the Dark Signers and she tells her parents about these responsibilities. Even though her mother didn't agree with her ideas, her father approved of it, saying that she would be just fine because Yusei is with her. She decids to find and duel Misty again since she guards the Ccarayhua Enerdy control unit.

She arrives at an abandoned amusement park, and duels against Misty, projecting herself through a hall of mirrors. Misty shows her the events of the past, about how her younger brother, Toby, was killed by Akiza's powers, and how the resulting shock drove Misty to her death. Taken aback by all this, Akiza trips and nearly lands on a mirror shard, but is rescued by Divine, who had survived his attack by Carly. To keep her fighting, Divine whispers a hypnotic suggestion in Akiza's ear, taking control of her and unleashing her full power. Akiza summons out her Black Rose Dragon, which destroys all the mirrors and shows Misty's true location. Meanwhile, Divine confronts Yusei and reveals he was really the one who killed Toby during his experiments, and used his psychic powers to pin the death on Akiza. However, through Yusei's manipulation, Misty learns of this and Divine is eaten by Ccarayhua, allowing Yusei to free Akiza from her trance. The Earthbound Immortal takes over Misty before she can surrender, forcing Akiza to defeat her. She promises to remember both her and Toby. Later during the battle against Goodwin, Akiza and Luna defend Yusei, Jack, and Crow by summoning their dragons to protect them from the King of the Underworld.

World Turbo Grand Prix

Following the Dark Signer's defeat, Akiza returns to Duel Academy, along with Leo and Luna. She also learned to have full control of her powers and when she ends up on Yusei's Duel Runner during a Turbo Duel with Sherry Le Blanc, she begins to have an appreciation for Turbo Dueling, being able to share Yusei's point of view. Spurred on by this, she applies for and earns a Turbo Duel License by defeating Ushio and is given a D-Wheel by Yusei. Later she comments that when talking to her parents she has some difficulty getting words across to them because of their strong bond. In the same episode she shows that she can tie a tie because when she was little she use to tie her father's tie.

It also seems that she has developed feelings for Yusei, and will go to great lengths to save him from danger as he had saved her. Another clue of a possible growing relationship is when Akiza and Yusei go to a skating rink, the type of place Akiza used to never go, there he taught her how to control movements and maneuvering for Riding Duels. When she first tried to skate, she fell toward Yusei, and although they didn't fall on the ground, Akiza still blushed, either being embarrassed about falling or shy about being very close to Yusei. At the same time Leo and Luna watched them, both questioning whether this counts as a date or not. This has yet to be confirmed, but there have been many more hints. In episode 80, she is shown to be jealous when Yusei starts talking only with Bruno (as they are both obsessing over building the new engine for the D-Wheels). When Akiza comes to ask Yusei for help with her physics, she sees him busy with Bruno (still working on the D-Wheels). When Lua comments that, "they're like two ducks side by side" (a term used to describe a man and a woman). Akiza leaves somewhat jealous as two how close they have gotten in so little time. As many had noted, she acts significantly different when it comes to Yusei than with everyone else, once getting angry at Jack for bringing it up. Although nothing is official, it has been shown that he might return the same feelings, such as in episode 85, where Yusei is seen pulling off Leo (Zola's son, not to be confused with Rua's English name) off of Akiza, after he grabbed her hands as she was giving him advice.

Psychic Powers and Mark of the Dragon

Aki's psychic ability allows her to make any damage done in a duel to her opponent real. This is the reason why she caused accidents when dueling because she didn't know how to maintain the power. She wears a hairband to keep these powers under control. During her second duel with Yusei, she was finally able to stop her powers, saving her father's life.

When Leo and Dexter decide to challenge "The Black Rose" to a duel, Akiza first sees Yusei Fudo and his Dragon's Birthmark. She expressed surprise to the fact that another individual also possesses such a birthmark. She notes it as a "wretched mark" before she leaves from the scene. After meeting Yusei, Akiza changes her outlook on the world. Since they haven't had a chance to talk, she sees Yusei as a challenge since she knows he possesses a mark similar to hers.

In the semifinals, her opponent for the round was Kodo Kinomiya. Despite Kodo pushing her psychological limits, Akiza still claims victory in the duel. Her dragon mark, the front claw, is revealed towards the end of the duel. It is also revealed at that time her Signer Dragon is Black Rose Dragon.

In her second duel against Yusei, when her powers threaten her father's life, she is finally able to control them in order to save him. She occasionally uses her powers to help her allies like when she summoned Rose Tentacles to get Yusei out of an AI-controlled truck by having it attack the back of the said vehicle.

Deck and Duel Runner

Akiza plays a Plant Deck that is "Black Rose" themed. Her cards consists of gaining control of her opponents' monsters and inflicting damage by card effects. It is also aimed at summoning her ace card "Black Rose Dragon", the monster that supposedly led to her alias, "The Black Rose". However, it is also thought that she used the alias of "The Black Rose", from her card "Black Rose Witch".

In the third season, Akiza finally starts Riding Duels, and uses a D-Wheel built by Yusei. Like all Turbo Duelsts, she has a separate deck specifically for that format. At first she has trouble grasping the concept of Speed Dueling from riding the Runner down to forgetting the concept of Speed Spells but quickly adapts and acquires her license. Her first Turbo duel was against Officer Trudge. He tells her, if she beat him in this duel, she will receive her liscence. Akiza wins the duel against Trudge and gets her driving liscence finally. She occasionally has Speed Duels with Yusei and the others to help her further her skills as a Speed Duelist.
