"Character with a backstory that appeals you the most"

Sakuya's backstory as a failed vampire hunter is one of my favorite theories about her past. She had sworn to faithfully serve Remilia to save her own life. This picture is the ending of Remilia's and Sakuya's fight as I imagine it. Remilia holds Sakuya's pocket watch and shut it close while she tries hopeless to get it back... That was the moment when all of her hopes to defeat Remilia were destroyed... And when she became Sakuya... and maybe more than even a close friend to Remilia...

Wow, I didn't know that I'm able to write that kind of "short story" ;)

Silver knives, the failed hunter theory is a very good one.

I like this theory too. However, I don't think Sakuya was forced at all.
She seems to really care about her mistress, and she always does her best to fulfil all her requests(even the most odd) and make her happy.  
And Remilia has a complete trust on Sakuya; if she really made Sakuya her servant against her will, she should be a little less carefree and expecting a backstab sooner or later.
So, their relationship seems very genuine to me.

One of my theories is that Sakuya fought Remilia once(or more than once) but the vampire acknowledged her strength and spared her life. Wishing to have the vampire hunter on her side, Remilia started to act friendly to her in some manner(nursing her wounds at the mansion, paying visit to her house, lending a hand against other enemies, and things like this). Sakuya was initially confused about this, but then the two slowly became close and Sakuya started to see her sworn enemy as a rival, then as a friend and at last as a charismatic leader to follow.
Not sure if Remilia's power over Fate had something to do in all this.

That's a very interesting theory. It's quite similar to mine but as I said, I think Sakuya served Remilia at least in the beginning againt her will. I do also think that Remilia spared her life because she acknowledged her strenght but under the condition, that Sakuya had to serve her. The fact that she spared Sakuya's life was the reason why Sakuya trusted Remilia after all. So after some time they got closer and Sakuya began to see Remilia's good side and her own meaning towards Remilia.  The rest of my theory is more or less the same as yours.

Yup, different path but same result: respect and trust to each other after a wrong start. ^^

Sure, it could be also something like this(more or less)

My whole good picture of the perfect maid would be destroyed if Sakuya would be kind of mentally desturbed, although it would make sense after all...

Maybe she doesn't need to be disturbed; just "fascinated" by Remilia enough to move on her side.

Could be... but I stick to my original theory (and I think nothing will change this so soon)

Maybe she's a vampire hunter from the moon

The moon have only rabbits / lunarians, not vampires.

I think she came on the earth during the moon war (Yukari against lunarians) and after she became a vampire hunter, maybe.

Glad you like it :3

Well, I know very less about the lunarian theory, although it was one of the first ones I've heard from. So I can't really say that I like or dislike it. I think I'll research about it sometimes ^^

And thank you too for the Sakuya model. It's very nice!

In TH8, Sakuya called Kaguya "Princess" I think, she doesn't become mad watching the moon and manipulates time (much like Kaguya), I think there is a link ^^
I am disappointed to TH15 besides, I expect to see Reisen II and lunarians but no (just a emo gothic girl and a troll fairy) ;w;
