|Affiliations:||Student - Attilan|
|Introduction:||Blaze of Glory|
Younger sister of Shiro, Leyu was brought to the school when she was nine for safety and has remained there ever since. In August 2009, she manifested mutant powers the same as her brother's and in August 2011 she chose to leave Xavier's to spend her senior year at the school in Attilan.
Name: Leyu Yoshida
First appearance: August 13, 2004
Family: Yashida Clan: Saburo Yoshida (father - deceased), Shinobu Yoshida (mother - deceased), Shiro Yoshida (brother), Shingen Yashida (great uncle - deceased), Keniuchio Harada (first cousin once removed), Mariko Yashida (first cousin once removed - deceased). Tomo Hino (maternal uncle - deceased).
Younger sister to Shiro, Leyu was born when he was eight. Her birth resulted in the death of their mother, and when their father also died four years later, the two siblings were raised by their cousins, Keniuchio Harada and Mariko Yashida. Leyu remained under their care when Shiro was sent to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngstersto learn more about his powers, but when she was nine, Shiro was disowned by Keniuchio for refusing to join the Yakuza and he took Leyu back with him to the United States, the school being the only safe place he knew for her.
Leyu remained at the school, making friends among the younger set of students (Miles Blaire, Artie Maddicks, the Manh twins Nga and Leong. She also had something of a schoolgirl crush on Shiro's best friend Alex Summers for many years. Life at Xavier's was not without incident - there was an kidnapping attempt and getting lost in a dinosaur-infested park - but with her brother always keeping an eye out for her, Leyu came through things unscathed and her cheerful, sunny disposition intact.
In August 2009, at the age of fourteen, Leyu manifested identical powers to her brother. With his personal experience of their destructive power, he was far more upset about it than she was. She remained at Xavier's while Shiro underwent therapy at Muir Island, training in her new abilities.
For her senior year Leyu chose to transfer to the school in Attilan so she could experience something new since her brother was still at Muir. She left in August 2011 for the new school, where she roomed with Sooraya Qadir. When an extremist group tried to twice coerce Sooraya into marrying one of their number, Leyu fought back, although the second time she was quickly overpowered and used as a bargaining chip.
Like her brother, Leyu possesses the mutant ability to absorb sunlight and use the stored chemical energy to ionize air into plasma. This has only just manifested, and she will need assessment and training to determine her limits and her strength.
