Sakura Matou was born as Sakura Tohsaka and is the biological sister of Rin Tohsaka and the adoptive sister of Shinji Matou. Her father Tokiomi Tohsaka followed the tradition of magi, where only one daughter can carry on the family's magical training. In order for his daughter to reach her true magical potential, Sakura was adopted by an ally of the Tohsaka House, the powerful magi Zouken Matou.

Sakura is a shy and kind young girl, who often goes to her classmate Shirou Emiya's house to help with his chores. Despite her soft-spoken demeanor, Sakura has great inner strength and can be quite stubborn at times. When Sakura is possessed by the dark powers of Angra Mainyu and transforms into Dark Sakura, his personality changes dramatically, becoming a cruel and violent person.

Sakura is the heroine of the last playable route in the original Fate/stay night visual novel, Heaven's Feel. This route of the game is considered to be the most important in Fate/stay night as it reveals much of the lore and backstory behind the Holy Grail War.
