It’s just like asking who Fairchild is! :P
Anyways, since the HOLiC’s conclusion is dawning near, I think this is the right time to ponder on this mystery.
Sure, HOLiC as a whole is mysterious but about who Yuuko is, is another issue shrouded in an enigma. Could we get to uncover things as her real name, nature and origin at the end of the series?
I for one am dying in anticipation!
Whether are we going to be happy about it or get ourselves overly disappointed is CLAMP’s problem. But how about laying our wild guesses in the open right now?
Actually, this post was inspired by a Chinese thread by 湛忆 which opened the topic on guessing Yuuko’s identity.
Among the many possibilities she presented, I’d like to agree on some and they are as follows:
- Clow Reed’s distant relative
She and Clow knew each other and is possibly blood-related. So, she and Syaoran were kins?
- Clow Reed’s lover or partner
She and Clow made the mokonas together as well as Maru and Moro. Yet Yuuko openly declares her disgust for the other in contrast to the statement that they haven’t met yet. So how would she know what kind of person is he if she hadn’t been closely linked with him? Hmm…possibly, who knows?!
- A mirage, an illusion or soul of a deceased (scary, but could also be)
The usual, a soul with an unfinished business that not until she gets to grant the wish from somebody she’d had contract with, she couldn’t be at peace or could continue to where she definitely is headed.
There were other choices as well. Check those out using the pic on the right as a portal, then be the judge and tell me what you think!
