Yui Kanzaki
A 19 year old woman who had been aiding Ren prior to the series. Yui's purpose for joining Ren is to find clues about her long lost brother Shiro. After Yui and Shiro were separated as children, Yui grew up in Aunt Sanako's Tea House, Atori. Yui can walk safely in the Mirror World, though she does collapse after a while. She can control the Mirror Monsters and later, began to pixelate in the real world. When she was 7, she fell out of the chair while she was drawing. When Shiro panicked and called for their parents, they ignored him and left the door locked. Yui's mirror reflection offered to give her a new life, but explained to Shiro that this life would run out when Yui became twenty. Yui remembers almost nothing about their parents, who were killed when the house caught fight after the first mirror-breach. Yui, once she learned the price of her life, could not bear that her life was at the cost of so many others. She then was determined to make herself disappear. She could still have been saved, but in the end of the TV series, it was Yui's wish that came true. When Shiro would have started the whole sequence of time again, she took them out of the equation.

When their parents died because of a fire caused by a monster breach, Shiro was taken in by their mother's sister in America. He was dragged in into the taxi. Before his parents died, Yui died and he accepted for her to live thanks to her mirror duplicate until she became 20. He swore he'd save her. He became a scientific genius in America, creating the Kamen Rider Card Deck. He opened the Mirror World and it killed him. I suspect that the one we see most of the time is Shiro Kanzaki's Mirror World self. Shiro was determined to save Yui, knowing what would happen to her. Though thought to be cruel for manipulating the Riders and pushing them to fight, Kanzaki's intent for the Rider war is for his sister's life. The Riders hear his voice in the depths of their minds. He stirs the violence in their nature, calls them to fight. Shinji resists on a subconscious level, because Kanzaki did not choose him to be a Rider.

And since he was looking for a place to stay, she figured he could move in there and work there to be around in order to dislodge Yui from Ren. Unfortunately Shinji was clumsy so Ren stepped right in and was impeccable employee. Grudgingly, Sanako decided to keep them both.
