|“||I’m Sona Sitri, the next head of the Sitri family.||”|
–Sona introducing herself, Light Novel Volume 5, Life.2 The gathering of the Young Devils!
Sona Sitri is the current Head of the Sitri Clan after her father contracted the Sleep Disease. She is the youngest daughter of Lord Sitri and Lady Sitri. She is a first-year college student at Kuoh Academy, the Former President of Kuoh Academy's Student Council, and a childhood friend and rival of Rias Gremory. Her alias at Kuoh Academy is Souna Shitori, and she is the third most popular girl at the Academy, behind Rias and Akeno.
Sona is a young bespectacled woman with a slim figure, black hair styled in a short bob cut and violet eyes. Her body measurements are [B77-W57-H83 cm] [B30-W22-H33 in]; height is 166 cm (5 feet 5 inches) and body weight is [51 kg].
She mostly dressed in a Kuoh Academy girls' school uniform.
Sona is shown to be a very strict and intelligent person. Whether it is a matter of the Student Council or the Sitri Clan, she does not take anything lightly. Sona is very dedicated to her dream of opening a Rating Game School that is open to all regardless of their status, even going to a human school to learn of their system.
She has a delicate side to her such as her fragile ego when it comes to baking cakes, which (unknown to her), she is quite bad at. She is also embarrassed by her sister's childish behavior.
She also is very protective of her big sister, Serafall Leviathan.
Like Rias, Sona became the heiress of her clan after her sister, Serafall, became a Satan, which resulted in the latter losing the right to inherit the clan. She also had a fiancé, but she broke off their engagement by beating him in a game of chess, claiming that she will not marry someone that is not smarter than her. She entered Kuoh Academy at the same time with Rias, Akeno, Tsubaki, and Kiyome. During her second year, she became the Vice-President of the Student Council, as during that same year; when their school was holding a festival, Rias had used real ghosts for her club's haunted house, which Sona scolded them for as using the real thing was forbidden.
