Yuna's first name means "Dark River" in Tupi, a Brazilian aboriginal language; while his last name, "Kaito" means "marine" in Japanese. While individually, the kanji for "海" means "sea" and "渡" means "transit, ferry, crossing" or "migrate".
Yuna is a tall, dark-haired, young man. He has a young face with purple-lavender eyes.
He wears a formal suit, including an unusual pocket watch which he holds dear.
Yuna appears to be rather polite and almost a little clueless. However, the "D" in his name indicates that he is a top-level magician of vast magical power and skill.
He is an orphan who was separated from his parents soon after birth. Late realizing that he had no blood-relatives to speak of. He decided that it would be best for him to stay away from people.
Later, He met a British association of powerful wizards who wanted him, in order to utilize his magic to help them. Yuna didn't want to help anyone and considered it bothersome to do something for others, but he didn't have any strong aversions to the idea and simply agreed; going along with it.
He continued to grow stronger in power and with that power, he gained new magical abilities. He wasn't stronger than those close to him, but he became more powerful than those who lived in far away lands.
One day, the wizards of his clan talked about a magical object they had created, and that a girl from another European clan of magicians had been born without any magical ability; something that Yuna himself had confirmed.
When the clan and the association come together to turn the girl into a magical tool, it was decided that it was best to let her travel the world and read herself the magical books that will be recorded on her. So, Yuna offers himself to be the guardian of the girl and accompany her on her trips.
For an unknown reason, Yuna betrayed his clan by stealing the magical object that they had created, and fled to Tomoeda. There, he began to watch over Sakura Kinomoto who was creating the Clear Cards. Yuna wants Sakura to create a special card, one that allows him to use some "taboo magic" related to Momo's time book.
Yuna is Akiho's caretaker. In truth, he is merely taking advantage of her to achieve his ultimate goal in utilizing the full strength of the forbidden magical relic that he had stolen.
Formally acquainted, Yuna expressed his admiration for Sakura's character. Unbeknownst to Sakura, Yuna knows everything about her and her family.
Yuna is the only one who has been seen to communicate with Momo so far. Both are of the consensus that they need to keep an eye on Akiho.
