Konno Yuuki (紺野木綿季, Konno Yūki?) was a player in «ALfheim Online». She was the 2nd leader of the «Sleeping Knights» guild, a group of terminally ill patients who played as a form of mental treatment and rehabilitation. She was also known as Absolute Sword (絶剣, Zekken?) due to winning 67 consecutive duels on the street, including Kirito, although Kirito was only using one sword at that time. She was also known for creating an 11-hit Original Sword Skill. Kirito stated that her reaction speed was even higher than his and she was much more immersed into virtual reality than he was. She spent her last moments of life while logged on to ALO in Asuna's arms, surrounded by her friends and more than a thousand other players.
ALfheim Online Avatar
In ALfheim Online, Yuuki's avatar was a slim Imp with milky white with a hint of purple skin, lustrous and gorgeous, long, purplish-black hair, and red eyes. She wore obsidian half-armour, which covered her chest and had a slight bulge, a bluebottle violet blouse and a windswept dress of the same colour beneath the armour. A thin, black sheath hung on her waist.
Yuuki was a kind of person who is willing to live her life to the fullest even in her critical condition, when she died peacefully in happiness. She believed some things must be done in forceful means for the other party to understand.
Konno Yuuki was born on May 2011. Due to dystocia, a caesarean section had to be performed, but an accident caused a large amount of bleeding and thus a blood transfusion was given. However, the blood was infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which causes the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). By the time the virus was detected, the whole family was already infected. Yuuki continued to fight the disease but, during the course of her 4th Grade, a group of students found she was a carrier of the HIV virus and started spreading rumors about Yuuki around the school and she was forced to transfer schools. At that moment, Yuuki's immune system began collapsing and she was hospitalised. Her parents died two years prior to the events of the Mother's Rosario and her sister a year prior.
Yuuki was first introduced as Absolute Sword, a street swordsman offering an 11-hit Original Sword Skill to the person who defeated her. After fighting through a sixty-seven battle win streak, she was challenged by Asuna. Although Asuna lost, Yuuki was impressed and thus asked Asuna on behalf of everyone in her guild for her help in defeating the 27th Floor's boss. After some consideration, Asuna agreed. The first attempt at defeating the floor's boss was unsuccessful, but after backup support on the second try, the Sleeping Knights beat the boss. As time progressed, Asuna got to know Yuuki in the real world. She went to great lengths to ensure that Yuuki could enjoy the "real" world again by asking Kazuto to help her with the technology that he had been developing in school. Through Kazuto's camera, Yuuki was able to enjoy the school at the SAO Survivor School. Unfortunately, her condition gradually worsened, but as she slowly died in Asuna's arms, Kirito and many players of ALfheim Online surrounded her, and she passed away in happiness.
- Created an 11-Hit Original Sword Skill - Mother's Rosario
- Took part in the defeat of the 27th-29th floor bosses of New Aincrad
- Became the 4th ALO champion swordsman
- First tester of the Medicuboid
- The name Yuuki (木綿季?) comes from the last two kanji in Crinum (浜木綿, Hamayuu?) and Season (季, Ki?), as Yuuki was born when the Crinums bloomed (July).
- Yuuki refers to herself using the personal pronoun boku (ボク?), which establishes a sense of masculinity and, thus, charactarises Yuuki as a tomboy.
- Yuuki also acknowledged Kirito as being as strong a player as Asuna, yet she did not ask for his help because he had discovered her secret as a user of the Medicuboid.
- Kirito claimed that if Yuuki had played SAO, she would have been the one to receive the Dual Blades skill, as her reaction speed was greater than his.
- As a Medicuboid user, she was one of the few people who had more playtime than the "survivors from the SAO incident", having been logged on for over three years continously.
- She jokingly proposed marriage to Asuna and told her that Asuna would have to join Yuuki's family, because if Yuuki joined Asuna's family she would be named Yuuki Yuuki (Yuuki is also Asuna's last name).
- Yuuki is the second person known to have used their real name as their in-game name (the first being Asuna).
- Kirito claimed that, even with Dual Blades, he believed it would have been impossible for him to win against Yuuki.
