Name: Sakura Kinomoto
Age: 10
Sex: female
Race: human

Wepon(s): staff and clow cards
At the start of the series, Sakura is ten years old and living in a fictional town called Tomoeda in Japan. It is supposedly located not far from Tokyo. One day in early April, shortly after her birthday and only slightly into her fourth grade year at Tomoeda Elementary School (Reedington Elementary School in Cardcaptors), young Sakura stumbles across a mysterious old book called The Clow in her fatherís study.Instantly upon touching the book, a confused Sakura mistakenly awakens one of the cardís guardians, Cerberus who was sleeping on the front cover where he was supposed to be guarding the Clow Cards: a deck of 19 (52 in the anime) magical cards with incredible powers. Upon emerging from the book, Kerberus admits to having let the cards slip away as he slumbered, and, realizing Sakuraís magical potential, cunningly tricks her into becoming the "Cardcaptor" and duty bound to collect all of the missing cards and return them to the book where they will then be under her control.What is not revealed until much later is that Cerberus, by appointing Sakura this position, was marking her as his one and only chosen candidate to become the next master of the Clow Cards and their guardians. The anime version of the series presents a slightly altered chain of events in which, on the afternoon after her first day of fourth grade, Sakura hears a mysterious sound coming from her father's library in the basement. She, nervously armed with her cheerleading baton, goes downstairs and there discovers the book of the Clow with all of its cards (the anime extends the deck to contain 52 cards) still within it. In this altered version of the story, Sakura picks up the top card and reads its name aloud, "Windy". This activates the Card, summoning a large wind that blows the remaining Cards out of the house and into the distance after which Kerberos emerges and appoints her to retrieve them. This was most likely added to not only give Kerberos a more justifiable reason to send Sakura on her mission, but also to give her an easier time at completing it, as she now begins her adventure with one of the cards, Windy, already under her control, as opposed to starting with no cards at all as in the original manga.
