Sachi was a member of the «Sword Art Online » guild Black Cats of the Full Moon. She was a fairly timid girl who harbored fear of the game and dying, which she secretly shared with Kirito.
Offline, Sachi, along with all the other members of the Black Cats of the Full Moon, were in a computer club at their school. She also happened to live fairly close to the leader of the guild, Keita.
She was mentored by Kirito to switch to sword and shield from her original profession of lancer, but could not handle it due to the closer range to monsters and her fear of battles. They became very close to the point of sleeping together in the same room; their relationship described as "two stray cats licking each others' wounds" as they comforted each other. Their relationship was close enough that they had a shared page in each others' inventory. Kirito promised her that she would not die, though unfortunately, he would not be able to keep his word.
She was killed along with most of her guild when a trap was triggered that called multiple monsters and prevented the use of crystals. After her death, Kirito was left in despair and self-loathing, even more so when Keita committed suicide shortly after her death.
Months later, Kirito received rumors of an item which could resurrect dead players from a Christmas event a month away, and trained relentlessly for it, taking many unnecessary risks, in his quest to revive Sachi. Having obtained the rare item Divine Stone of Returning Soul after much hardship, to his disbelief and horror, the item had to be used within ten seconds of a player's death, rendering the item useless for his purposes of reviving Sachi, who had died months ago, compounding his grief even further.
A few hours later on Christmas Eve, a time-delayed message left by her opened up in Kirito's inventory. The message told him she already knew of his higher level, along with telling him not to blame himself for her death, which she had predicted would happen due to her nature. She requested Kirito to survive in the world of SAO, and to find the reason why such a world was built. The song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was also sung by her and her final goodbyes gave Kirito the strength to live. Her death was one of the driving factors for Kirito's refusal to join another guild.Tutorial:
