Suzuno Osugi (大杉 鈴乃 Ōsugi Suzuno) is first introduced in the original Fushigi Yūgi; and, is later revealed to be the Priestess of Byakko. Suzuno is the second priestess in the history of The Universe of the Four Gods. She also makes an appearance in Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden as well as its sequels, Fushigi Yuugi Byakko Ibun and Fushigi Yûgi.
She is the daughter of Takao Osugi, the assistant researcher of Takiko Okuda's father, Eiinosuke, who is the translator of Universe of the Four Gods. After the death of Takiko Okuda and her father, her father was entrusted with the book.
Suzuno managed to obtain the book despite the precautions her father had taken to prevent it from causing similar tragedy to what happened to the Okuda family. She then became the second priestess of the book, the Priestess of Byakko, and alongside the Byakko no Senshi she managed to summon the God and bring prosperity to Byakko's land, Sairou. However, she fell in love with the Celestial Warrior Tatara, and they were unfortunately parted when Suzuno was forced to exit the world. When Byakko was summoned, she wished for both of them to be together; but, Byakko said that he can not grant the wish. Suzuno then returned to her own world with a sad, and heavy heart.
After her adventures in the Book Suzuno lived in Morioka, Japan, leading an apparently quiet life with a normal family and taking care of her traditional home, but never forgetting about Tatara and her Byakko friends. Much later, long after she returned to her world, her grandson Toki was seen dividing his time between his work as a taxi driver and taking care of her aged self. She died at the same moment as Tatara did, and in the anime her spirit is last seen disappearing with Tatara's, finally reunited after more than 60-70 years.
Suzuno has long blonde hair pulled into two braids and tied with ribbons. Her bangs slightly cover her eyebrows. Her eyes are a greyish color. She has a beauty mark on the left side of her mouth. A single Watase illustration shows her wearing glasses.
Suzuno wears her high school uniform from Japan, which is blue with a red scarf that goes below the collar. Her skirt is pleated and long, reaching below the knee.
- Suzuno makes a cameo in both Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden and Fushigi Yuugi Byakko Ibun, and she is also mentioned by Tatara in Suzaku Ibun.
- Suzuno entered the book realm when she was 8 years old.
