Kazanari - Derived from Japanese, which means Crying Wind.
Tsubasa - Derived from Japanese, which means Wing.
Tsubasa is a tall woman, which consists having Blue Hair and dark blue eyes. She has left ponytail-hairstyle, which is equipped by mini-comb, which falls to her waist level.
During Zwei Wing Incident, Tsubasa wears the sleepless high-collar, the white low-belted pleated cut on her waist. She also wears a blue and white equipment up to her thigh and ankle.
With the rest of the series, she wears a Lydian High School Academy Uniform, which consists of black coat, red necktie, and gray skirt.
During her time as Zwei-Wing, Tsubasa is in fact a very nervous and shy girl where her partner Kanade did most of the talking and cheering her up, giving her strength. However, in an ensuing battle with Noise, Kanade sacrificed herself, dying in Tsubasa's arms, sending her through deep grief. Tsubasa first appears in the present as a pop star and student with a cold personality, the death of Kanade has shattered her shyness and she became distant and aloof. She refuses to accept Hibiki as Kanade's replacement, and prefers to fight alone. She even refuses to sign an overseas singing contract, as she views herself as a weapon who only sings in the battlefield. However, during the time when she was hospitalized due to the life-threatening side-effects of singing her swan song, Tsubasa seemingly "converses" with Kanade. Afterwards, she starts opening up to Hibiki and everyone else, and is shown to have a more caring side.
By Symphogear G, she has evolved into the 'big sister/senior' of the Symphogear users, mirroring how Kanade was to her.
