[[folder: The First Five]]
!!!Satoshi Mochida
-->Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono

An OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent at Kisaragi Academy, Satoshi serves as the main protagonist (though [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent the others get their time in the spotlight]], especially from ''Blood Covered'' on). Generally a NiceGuy, he tends to get picked on a bit by his classmates due to his fear of ghost stories.
* [[spoiler:AnArmAndALeg: In ''Tortured Souls'', he gives his own paper scrap to Naomi and uses Kizami's for himself. After he, Naomi, and Ayumi perform the ritual, the scene cuts to Naomi and Ayumi sitting back in the classroom, each holding one of Satoshi's severed arms.]]
* BadassBoast: His first appearance in the game has him, without a trace of fear, say he will rescue everyone. Which is pretty badass for a guy shaking from scary stories earlier and stuck in that school.
* BigBrotherInstinct
* ChickMagnet: He attracts the attention of [[spoiler:three girls - Naomi, Ayumi, and his sister Yuka]]. The LighterAndSofter spin off Sachiko's Game of Love; Hysteric Birthday 2U, jokingly adds Yui and Tohko. But he is, of course, ObliviousToLove, so he is also a...
** CluelessChickMagnet: Yep.
* CowardlyLion: Yes, he's terrified. That doesn't stop him from doing everything in his power to find a way out for his sister, his friends, and himself.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation]]: [[spoiler:In the Tortured Souls OVA and in ''Corpse Party: Musume''.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: In Book of Shadow, it was remarked he and Yui had a lot of snark to snark battles. He wasn't one in Blood Covered, but that's [[EldritchLocation justified]].
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Yuka, naturally. Failing this can push him over the DespairEventHorizon.
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: In ''Corpse Party: Musume'', Yuka dies and he kills himself to be with her.]]
* [[spoiler:HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: In the end of the OVA, not even half]].
* TheHero: Although in Blood Covered his chapter is in the middle of the game; every chapter before his has the characters fall deeper and deeper in trouble. When he first appears, he acts like a badass and his appearance is when the characters start to find a way to get out of there. Also the other characters treat him like the leader.
* HeroicBSOD: If [[spoiler:Yuka]] or [[spoiler:Naomi]] die.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He willingly gave Naomi his scrap in the OVA, not knowing what would happen to him if he used a scrap from another group.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: He and Yoshiki seem to be this.
* IdiotBall: In the anime OVA, he leaves Yuka to do her business, and lets Sachiko, a ghost girl among ghost children who are known to slaughter everyone, go along with her. If this isn't bad enough, he goes inside and tells her to "scream if she needs anything". Guess three times if this happens.
* NiceGuy
* NoHeroToHisValet: He is thought of as the leader of the group, the only one to challenge this is Naomi. Who he probably has known the longest, excluding his sister.
* ObliviousToLove: And, well, you can't really blame the guy: Naomi is such an extreme {{Tsundere}} that she practically comes off as emotionally abusive towards him, so it'd make sense that he wouldn't be able to see that she's in love with him. [[spoiler:He ''does'' have a LoveEpiphany with regards to Naomi in one ending. It's not in the True End, though.]]
* StandardizedLeader
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Horror Stories?]]: He isn't a fan of them, so ''of course'' he ended up with a ClassRep who ''adores'' telling them, exposing his phobias for all to see and mock. Then they end up being ''dragged into'' one...
* YouAreWorthHell: Towards Naomi, if she loses her piece of the charm, he says he would stay with her. [[spoiler:As well as in Book of Shadows, when he is put in a time loop. Instead of leaving when they refuse to listen to him, he decides to do the charm again, as he is the only one who can save everyone.]]

!!!Naomi Nakashima
-->Voiced by: Creator/RinaSato

Naomi's known Satoshi ever since they were kids, and loves exploiting the fact that she knows all his weaknesses. However, she does this to try and hide [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend her feelings for him]], in typical {{Tsundere}} fashion.

* AlliterativeName
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Satoshi is as much in love with her as she is with him, but he doesn't realize his feelings in most of the endings because he's afraid of being ridiculed by Naomi because of her extreme {{Tsundere}} attitude.
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: She gets possessed by the darkness in Heavenly Host Elementary and ends up killing Seiko while under its influence. This can trigger a DespairEventHorizon in one of the Wrong Ends.]]
* BreastExpansion: She's definitely a lot bigger in 2U than she is in the regular series.
* CassandraTruth: In ''Book of Shadows'', her mother doesn't believe anything she says about [[spoiler:Seiko, since her existence was erased upon her death in Tenjin.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: Not only her feelings for Satoshi, but also the guilt she feels immediately after lashing out at Seiko. If she tries to apologize, she's hardly even able to get the words out, and neither she nor Seiko feel any better. In ''Book of Shadows'', she actually has a coughing fit.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong: As revealed in the last chapter of ''Corpse Party: Musume''.]]
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: In Chapter 5. Your choices determine what happens to her: either a message from Seiko will eventually convince her that Seiko doesn't hate her and she rejoins the group, or she goes crazy and charges at the group while dragging Seiko's body behind her.]]
* DisappearedDad
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation: In ''Corpse Party: Musume''. She ends up becoming Sachiko's replacement.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: Eventually, the horrors of the school push her past the breaking point and she tries to hang herself. Talking her down is necessary for that chapter's True End.]]
* [[spoiler: EyeScream: One of her eyes is cursed in ''Blood Drive'', giving her excrutiating pain but also granting her the ability to see spirits.]]
* FatalFlaw: Not only is she [[CannotSpitItOut unable to bring herself to confess her feelings]], she tends to take out her frustration verbally on everyone around her. Even when she knows it won't help anything, she can't stop herself...
* HartmanHips: And [[SchoolgirlLesbian Seiko]] will constantly remind Naomi of those.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice:]] In the PC-98 version, she may do this in order to [[spoiler:save Yuka. Sadly, this locks you into an ending that makes this a SenselessSacrifice]].
* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler:Why she tried to revive everyone in ''Book of Shadows''.]]
* HiddenDepths: In-universe example in the PC-98 version. Everyone present is surprised Naomi can play the piano and is apparently very good at it. That doesn't get any other mention in any subsequent games, however.
* InformedAttribute: The Corpse Party Blood Covered's character guide gives Naomi the characteristics of being Satoshi's Lancer, but she spends too much time crying over Seiko to fill out this role. The role of the Lancer goes to Ayumi who doubles as TheSmartGirl.
* MaybeEverAfter: The True Ending in PC-98, where she has some alone time with Satoshi in their classroom and she invites him to come over to her place and see her play the piano.
* MyGreatestFailure: She feels that if she hadn't taken out all her frustrations on Seiko, they wouldn't have separated and [[spoiler:Seiko wouldn't have died]]. She tries to rectify this after being given the chance to do so in ''Book of Shadows''. [[spoiler:She succeeds, but Seiko freaks out (as it turns out, Naomi was BrainwashedAndCrazy and tried to kill her) and runs away from her, headlong into a DeathTrap. [[YouCantFightFate At this point, Naomi is forced to accept that saving Seiko at all is impossible]]]].
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye: Naomi splits up with [[spoiler:Seiko]] shortly after the two get into an argument. [[spoiler:The next time she sees Seiko, she's hanging by the neck in a bathroom stall]]. Considering it was Naomi's fault they split up in the first place, she [[ItsAllMyFault feels pretty bad]] about it. [[spoiler:She later finds out that she was the one who did that to her, albeit whilst possessed.]]
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest: Sorta. She's known Satoshi since seventh grade.
* ScrewDestiny: Her attitude in ''Book of Shadows'', both in the "World Loop" chapters and the chapter following ''Blood Covered''[='=]s True Ending. By the end of "Engraved Seal", [[spoiler:this becomes YouCantFightFate]].
* ThousandYardStare: In the beginning of Book Of Shadows, and [[spoiler:end of the Tortured Soul OVA]].
* {{Tsundere}}: A typical ''tsun-tsun''; this is {{Deconstructed}}, as it feeds into her FatalFlaw.
* TwistedAnkle: Suffers from one after a bad landing, making it hard for her to get around at first.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Her FatalFlaw is a heavy driving force here towards Satoshi.

!!!Ayumi Shinozaki
->Voiced by: Creator/AsamiImai

The ClassRep for 2-9, Ayumi is bright, cheerful, and absolutely ''loves'' scary stuff. Creepy stories, strange rituals... she loves them all, and can't resist taking advantage of her position to draw her classmates into her games. Especially Satoshi, since he's so ''funny'' when he's freaked out...!

* [[spoiler:AxeCrazy]]: In the [[spoiler:Wrong Ends where she is possessed and you don't snap her out of it. She might shove Yoshiki down the stairs so hard his skull cracks, stab Satoshi with a pair of scissors, beat Naomi to death with her bare hands...]]
** [[spoiler:In the ''Corpse Party: Musume'' manga, towards the end, she really loses it. She stabs herself in front of Yoshiki again and again with an insane look.]]
* BigNo: [[spoiler:At the end of Book of Shadows, her sister gets her head chopped off right in front of her. Ayumi lets out a scream leading up to the ending credits of the game.]]
* [[spoiler:BigSisterInstinct]]: [[spoiler:To Yuki Kanno, and to a certain extent, the other children who were victims of the 1973 Tenjin Elementary kidnapping and murder case.]]
* [[spoiler:[[BloodSplatteredInnocents Blood-Splattered Innocent]]: ''Book of Shadows'' ends with her drenched in her sister's blood after [[YourHeadAsplode her head explodes]] whilst hugging her in the [[HopeSpot aftermath]] of a BigDamnHeroes moment.]]
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Her sister's death and the events of Heavenly Host do this to Ayumi.]]
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]]: [[spoiler:She gets possessed fairly often, and if you make the wrong choices, you end up with Wrong Ends where she kills one of the others.]]
* ChildHater: Inverted; she doesn't seem to trust adults too much, besides Yui.
* ClassRepresentative
* CoolBigSis: Has two (Hinoe and Ms. Yui) and is one to Yuka and [[spoiler: Yuki Kanno]].
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:CuteWitch: In Book Of Shadows, we learn she is descended from a family that really had magic powers. Her older sister is a HotWitch instead.]]
* DamselInDistress: So much, but by [[spoiler:the prologue of Blood Drive, she gets better]].
* [[spoiler:DarkAndTroubledPast]]: It looks she still hasn't gotten over it by [[spoiler:''Dead Patient'']].
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation]]: [[spoiler:In the novels, she becomes the new Sachiko of Heavenly Host.]]
* DemonicPossession / GrandTheftMe: Her latent psychic powers attract spirits to her, but because she hasn't learned to control them yet, she is easily subject to possession. [[spoiler:In the prologue of ''Blood Drive'', she gets a lot better.]]
** ManySpiritsInsideOfOne: [[spoiler:In ''Book of Shadows'', she is literally fought over by other vengeful spirits because they see her as their only hope.]]
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Whenever she goes through DemonicPossession. [[spoiler:Has this at the end of Blood Drive and in Dead Patient.]]
* EvilLaugh / LaughingMad: If she's [[DemonicPossession possessed]] or [[BrainwashedAndCrazy taken over by the darkening]].
* FightingFromTheInside: Whenever she has to overcome DemonicPossession or being {{Brainwashed}} by the darkening.
* GirlishPigtails
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Sacrifices herself to the Book of Shadows, which restores everyone's knowledge of her deceased friends' existence in exchange for wiping out her own from her friends' memories.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler:Why she decides to go back to Tenjin Elementary in Blood Covered and why she tried to revive her friends in "Book of Shadows".]]
* TheLancer: Naomi's supposed to be TheLancer to Satoshi, but she's too broken for it to work, so Ayumi takes the role as well as doubling as TheSmartGirl.
* TheLoad: She gets possessed quite a bit. [[spoiler:Though in "Book Of Shadows", she does get better.]]
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouCrazy [[LoveMakesYouEvil And Evil]]]]: [[spoiler:In a bad ending, Ayumi burns Naomi's paper, then beats her to death. While covered in blood, she laughs and praises herself. Though Naomi does have the last laugh.]]
** [[spoiler:In the ''Musume'' manga, Ayumi stabs Naomi's dead body again and again, then cuts it into pieces, pushes Yoshiki off a cliff, then attempts to kill Yuka. Though she was possessed by Sachiko the whole time. This even carries over in the PC 98 version.]]
* MoralityChain: Yoshiki is hers; he keeps her mental state in check, and helps to keep her from having anymore [[FreakOut Freak Outs]]. [[spoiler:If he's away from her for too long, it never ends well]].
* NightmareFetishist: {{Subverted}}. As much as she loves horror stories, getting flung headfirst into one understandably freaks her right out.
* ObliviousToLove: At least in regards to Kishinuma's crush on her, she's [[InfiniteStratos Ichika-levels of dense]]. Most likely because of her crush on Satoshi.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted: She's not the only Shinozaki in the game. [[spoiler:They're distantly related through being descended from a lineage with strong psychic abilities]].
* {{Protectorate}}
* RescueRomance: With Yoshiki, all the time.
* [[spoiler: RetGone: At the end of ''Blood Drive'', she sacrifices herself to the Book of Shadows and is erased from her friends' memories, in return for restoring the memories of Seiko, Mayu, Morishige, and Yui to the world.]]
* [[spoiler:SavedByCanon]]: [[spoiler:She makes an appearance in the prologue of [[VisualNovel/CorpseParty2DeadPatient Dead Patient]], which is set after ''Blood Drive''.]]
* [[spoiler:SelfHarm]]: She does while having a FreakOut in ''Corpse Party: Musume''.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: She likes Satoshi, as she feels she can trust him.
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler:Shows these when possessed.]]
* TheSmartGirl: She has the most knowledge of the occult so she fills out this role in the game.
* ThousandYardStare: [[spoiler:Sports one in her cameo appearance in ''Dead Patient''.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: She seems to be one for Satoshi and Yoshiki. She is known to have a crush on Satoshi and generally she scares him, while when she's with Yoshiki, she is very rude to him. But it is [[spoiler:hinted she might like him at the end of Blood Covered and in Blood Drive]].
* TookALevelInBadass: In Book of Shadows. Especially in [[spoiler:the prologue to Blood Drive, where she manages to force away possessions by herself and even prepares and chants up a spell to revive the dead]]. In Blood Drive, she takes another level in badass once [[spoiler: The Book of Shadows accepts her as its master.]]
* UngratefulBitch: Comes across as such towards Yoshiki. He spends most of his time saving her life and stopping her from going insane while she insults him any time they disagree on something. [[spoiler:She becomes aware of his actions and eventually feels grateful for it in Blood Drive.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Performing the Sachiko Ever After charm was her idea.
* [[spoiler:ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend]]: Acts like one to Satoshi, though [[spoiler:if she is acting like this, you are probably on your way to a Wrong End.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: The spirits of her dead friends appear to her in ''Blood Drive'' and tell her that while they are grateful that she wants to revive them, her attempts to do so are only getting more people killed.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Yandere}}]]: At the very least, she starts showing signs of [[spoiler:SanitySlippage in one bad ending. She actually ''burns Naomi's Sachiko charm'' (which she needs to get home), then ''kills'' her in a particularly horrific Wrong End. Naomi has the last laugh, though]].

!!!Yoshiki Kishinuma
->Voiced by: YuuichiNakamura

Despite having the FaceOfAThug, Yoshiki is actually a pretty nice guy. Likes teasing Satoshi, but that's the norm among his classmates, anyway. After they're pulled into Tenjin, he vows to protect Ayumi at any cost.

* ActionSurvivor: He's the most capable in Heavenly Host and survives with the most injuries.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Though he cares for Ayumi, he thinks she's more interested in Satoshi. [[spoiler:She may return his feelings later on, though.]]
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Before he started his second year, he admits he was a loner.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: If he fails and Ayumi dies...it never ends well. He'll either get killed off later, or be DrivenToSuicide because he can't live without her.
* {{Badass}}: The biggest one out of the main five.
** BadassNormal
** [[spoiler:HeartbrokenBadass]]: [[spoiler:If Ayumi dies.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Why he fell in love with Ayumi.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Shown more in Book of Shadows where he [[spoiler:loses Ayumi again, and on his way to find her, he stumbles across Mayu and Nana. For a little bit, he has to save and protect them until he finds Ayumi.]] ''Book of Shadows'' hints that he would probably be this way towards his own little sister, Miki.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: Saves Yuka from Kizami in ''Tortured Souls'', but unfortunately she was already fatally injured.]]
* [[spoiler:ChangedMyMindKid: Ayumi and Yoshiki are returned to their classroom by Yuki. Ayumi wants to return to save Satoshi and the others. If Yuka was was caught by Kizami (or if you choose to not to), Yoshiki refuses to go back. Naturally, he ends up going back anyway. It still leads to a Wrong End, though.]]
** [[spoiler: Same case in ''Tortured Souls''. He comes back in time to save Yuka, and is then killed trying to hold off Yoshikazu so that Ayumi can get Yuka to safety.]]
* TheBigGuy: He's the toughest out of all of the kids and he takes the most risks as well. He can also be considered Ayumi's personal Lancer as well.
* ChickMagnet: PlayedForLaughs in one of the drama [=CD=]s, where Yoshiki gets confessions from Naomi, Yui, and Yuka. Later on, even [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Satoshi, Yuuya, and Morishige]] confess their love to him. [[spoiler:This ends up being a hallucination Yoshiki is having while being buried alive.]]
* CooldownHug: [[spoiler:Gives one to Ayumi when she is possessed.]]
* CrazyJealousGuy: He's really good at hiding it, and doesn't act on it until [[spoiler:he finally snaps at Ayumi about her feelings to Satoshi later.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation]]: [[spoiler:In ''Tortured Souls''.]]
* {{DeadpanSnarker}}: Has his moments.
* {{Delinquent}}: Most people think he's one, due to his dyed hair and his lack of interest in school. But he did used to skip a lot and smoke.
* DevotedToYou: He would do anything for Ayumi, and she doesn't even realize it.
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: In the original PC-98 game, he becomes suicidal if Ayumi dies. In one ending, he tries to attack Satoshi before breaking down in tears and dropping the knife; in another ending he simply disappears, and Satoshi wonders if the guilt of leaving Ayumi behind was too much for him.]]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: It was in a [[spoiler:fake dream when Yoshiki was being buried alive, though...]]
* FaceOfAThug
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: In the OVA, he blocks the door so Yoshikazu can't get to Ayumi and a wounded Yuka. Yoshikazu just plows through.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: He and Satoshi seem to be this.
* IChooseToStay: [[spoiler: At the end of Blood Drive, he chose to stay with Ayumi when she absorbed the power of the Book of Shadows, and was erased from the others' memories along with her.]]
* InformedFlaw: In his character description it states that he is prone to outbursts when frightened or upset and is essentially a JerkWithAHeartOfGold character. In the actual game he rivals Satoshi for being the kindest and the most level-headed.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's this in the intro, but for the rest of the game he slides into the NiceGuy.
* KnightInShiningArmor: He wants to be seen in Ayumi's eyes as this, regardless that he already is one.
** Even Azusa calls/thinks of him as this, she even points out that the kanji is in his name. Kinda.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Ayumi is this for him. [[spoiler:He loses the will to live if she dies.]]
* LoveMartyr: This guy is willing to put himself through hell ''and'' back for Ayumi, he does reach his limit at one point when he's had enough of Ayumi's constant concern for Satoshi in BloodCovered.
* NervesOfSteel: [[spoiler: Intimidates spirits that are possessing Ayumi out of her body while they're trying to hurt him.]]
* NiceGuy
* ParentalAbandonment: He lives away from his parents and is reported to have a bad relationship with them.
* PowerTrio: With [[spoiler:Mayu and Nana]] in Book of Shadows for a little bit.
* [[spoiler: RetGone: In Blood Drive, he decides to stay with Ayumi during her HeroicSacrifice, and is wiped from his friends' memories along with her.]]
* [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice: In the PC-98 game, he can sacrifice himself to save Ayumi's life. Ayumi escapes the school, but ends up dying the next day anyway.]]
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Inverted, he gained his feelings for Ayumi when she got him out of trouble and encouraged him to graduate high school.
* TsurimeEyes
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ayumi, and only if she'd be able to see it.

!!!Yuka Mochida
-->Voiced by: Creator/EriKitamura

Satoshi's sweet and polite little sister, who's currently in middle school. Came to pick up her brother and wound up getting sucked into the middle of things.
* BigBrotherWorship: She adores Satoshi. [[spoiler:And not just as a sibling.]]
* [[spoiler:BrotherSisterIncest]]: [[spoiler:Her love for her brother goes beyond sibling affection, though she only admits it in Chapter 5's Extra Ending.]]
* [[spoiler:CruelAndUnusualDeath: In the anime OVA, she's officially killed off by Kizami.]]
** [[spoiler:Also in her chapter in ''Book of Shadows'', which shows what happens to you if Kizami catches you in the original game: no matter what choices you make, you end up getting killed by either Sachiko or Yoshikazu.]]
* DamselInDistress: A particularly strong trouble magnet in the original PC-98 game.
** In ''Blood Drive'', [[spoiler: she is kidnapped by Misuto.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation: In the ''Tortured Souls'' OVA and in ''Corpse Party: Musume''.]]
* DeliberatelyCuteChild
* [[spoiler: DemonicPossession: Possessed by Sachi in ''Blood Drive''.]]
** [[spoiler: FightingFromTheInside: During this.]]
* HairDecorations
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]: In Chapter 5's Extra Ending, where she [[spoiler:[[TakingTheBullet Takes The Scissors]] for Satoshi.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Has this dynamic with Kizami, who is a good 46 cm taller than her.
* TheLoad: Forces Satoshi (and by extension, the player) into an epic quest for a usable bathroom when they could have focused on trying to find his classmates and teacher. Also the most useless of the nine characters.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Though she's only a few years younger than the rest of the cast, the age difference seems particularly pronounced thanks to her uniform and immaturity. She also ''acts'' much younger than she is, thanks to being spoiled rotten by her parents.
* OutOfFocus: In the first half of ''Blood Drive'', due to Satoshi wanting to keep her out of the action. [[spoiler: The BigBad ends up luring her to Heavenly Host and kidnapping her for use in his plans.]]
* PottyEmergency: Happens to her. Unfortunately, the lack of working bathrooms doesn't do her any good. [[spoiler:Eventually leads to a PottyFailure, courtesy of Kizami.]]
* {{Protectorate}}: To her brother and to Yuuya Kizami. [[spoiler:Too bad Kizami's a murderous nutcase.]]
* SpoiledSweet: She may be spoiled, but nobody can deny she cares a lot about her brother when she gives him (or tries to, depending on Satoshi's choice) her caramel beads as a good luck charm.
** SpoiledBrat: It's likely due to fear and stress, but she has this attitude quite a bit while trapped in the school.

[[folder: First entered in ''Corpse Party: Blood Covered'']]
!!!Seiko Shinohara
-->Voiced by: SatomiArai

Naomi's best friend, a cheery and irrepressible GenkiGirl with a bit of a perverted streak. Or maybe it's just that she loves teasing Naomi...? Either way, she has a way of keeping her head up and looking on the bright side, even in the darkest of situations...

* AlliterativeName
* [[spoiler:AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: In ''Book Of Shadows''.]]
* CatSmile: A common expression of hers, especially in the manga.
* [[spoiler:CruelAndUnusualDeath: Murdered by her BrainwashedAndCrazy best friend. Horrifying and heartbreaking, to say the least.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* GenkiGirl
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Although she has feelings for Naomi, she acts as a ShipperOnDeck for her and Satoshi.
* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie]]
* LovableSexManiac: She took any chance to gaze and feel up Naomi. It never got to a rapey feeling, though.
* MissingMom
* [[spoiler:[[OffWithHisHead Off with Her Head]]: How she dies in ''Book of Shadows''.]]
* ThePollyanna: [[spoiler: Even in death!]]
* PromotionToParent: Her mother disappeared some time ago; since then, Seiko has grown into a surrogate mother for her siblings.
* [[spoiler:RetGone: As a result of dying in Tenjin, everyone outside of Satoshi, Naomi, Yuka, Yoshiki, and Ayumi has forgotten about her existence.]]
* SchoolgirlLesbian
* [[spoiler:SpiritAdvisor]]: [[spoiler:Becomes this for Naomi following her death. Also is this to Ayumi in ''Blood Drive''.]]
* StepfordSmiler: She puts up a good front, but the truth is she's actually hiding a lot of sadness from her mother's disappearance. The same applies to getting stuck in Tenjin Elementary, where she acts cheerful to hide how scared she really is. [[spoiler:This bites her in the ass ''hard'' when Naomi calls her creepy, saying that it in their situation it's pretty much impossible to be that cheerful.]]
** [[spoiler: Asks Ayumi to tell Naomi that she is doing fine as a spirit in Heavenly Host, though it pretty clearly isn't true.]]
* [[spoiler:UndyingLoyalty: As literal as it gets. She actually saves Naomi from herself from the other side of the veil of death. Even after NAOMI HERSELF was the one that killed her (sure, she was BrainwashedAndCrazy at the time, but still).]]
* [[spoiler: TheVoiceless: Her spirit form is unable to materialize or speak, so she communicates with Ayumi by writing.]]

!!!Mayu Suzumoto
-->Voiced by: Creator/YukaNanri

Energetic and popular with most of the guys, Mayu is particularly close to Sakutarou, with whom she shares a LikeBrotherAndSister rapport. With her family moving away, she's about to transfer out of Kisaragi, with the Culture Festival being her last day...

* [[spoiler:TheBlank: Her spirit form in ''BloodDrive'' appears with a black hole where her face should be.]]
* [[spoiler:CruelAndUnusualDeath: It doesn't get much crueler than ramming her into a wall at such a high speed that she's reduced to a pile of mush and organs. She is probably the most innocent character in the game (along with Yuka), and she gets the most brutal death by far.]]
** [[spoiler:Book of Shadows manages to make her death ''even worse''...at least, from Mayu's perspective. Instead of being smashed into a wall and reduced to a pile of mush, she's ''slowly and excruciatingly'' torn apart by the ghost children. Even if it wasn't as gruesome as being smashed into the wall, you have to remember...a) the wall smashing was instantaneous, meaning there was minimal pain and suffering involved, and b) she's going to be feeling this for the rest of her afterlife.]]
** [[spoiler:And then ''again'' in the Blood Drive prequel chapter, when Ayumi and Naomi try to bring her back from the dead. '''[[CameBackWrong It went badly]]'''. She writhes on the floor in agony as symbols appear on her limbs, which then ''explode'', leaving her drawn and quartered.]]
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* FriendToAllChildren: [[spoiler:...too bad the children weren't friendly to her.]]
* HairDecorations: Catches up part of her hair in a small side ponytail.
* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With Sakutaro. [[spoiler:In Book of Shadows, it's implied that her feelings are more than that.]]
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: [[spoiler:She is this to Sakutarou.]]
* NewTransferStudent: {{Inverted}}; she was transferring out of Kisaragi, and the story starts on what was meant to be her last day there...
* [[RenaissanceMan Renaissance Woman]]: Jokes about being such with regards to her talents in the drama club: She acts, writes scripts, produces, and even makes costumes.
* [[spoiler:RetGone: As a result of dying in Tenjin, everyone outside of Satoshi, Naomi, Yuka, Yoshiki, and Ayumi has forgotten about her existence.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Retirony}}: If only she'd transferred out sooner...]]
** To be fair, [[spoiler:they performed the ritual in the first place because she was leaving, as the Sachiko Ever After Charm is said to be a friendship ritual.]]
** [[spoiler:Well, she did say she was transferring to a new school...]]
* [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]]: [[spoiler:It was her kindness towards Yuki and Tokiko that got her killed.]]

!!!Sakutarou Morishige
-->Voiced by: Creator/TetsuyaKakihara

Another classmate from 2-9. He's quite close to Mayu.

* [[spoiler:AxeCrazy: In the Tortured Souls OVA, he loses it when he realizes the corpse he liked the most was Mayu. He thinks Mayu is in his phone, and by killing others and taking photos of their corpse he is giving Mayu company.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: Referenced in his spotlight chapter in ''Book of Shadows'', where [[spoiler:he muses darkly about how, while he's not particularly attracted to Yuka, seeing her scared and helpless was ''really exciting'' for him]].
* BlindWithoutEm: As revealed in Extra Chapter 9.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: When he finds out that the corpse he was most admiring throughout the course of the game was Mayu, he snaps. HARD.]]
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did you just slap Sachiko?]]: In 2U, when he's coaching her in acting skills, Sachiko's constant mess ups lead Morishige, on SeriousBusiness mode, to slap her. And much to everyone's surprise, ''it actually fires her up to keep working hard to improve''.
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* Dramatic {{Irony}}: A key facet of his character is that he's completely unaware that [[spoiler:the corpse picture he's most enthralled with and is using as an emotional crutch until he finds Mayu ''is'' Mayu]].
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]]: Shown in the manga; overheard in the game.
* TheGenericGuy: While the others are having their {{Establishing Character Moment}}s in the classroom, he seems to be just... sort of there to establish that he exists and is Mayu's friend. His comes later.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: When he learns [[spoiler:the corpse whose picture he's most obsessed with belongs to ''Mayu'']], he does ''not'' take it well.
** [[spoiler:LaughingMad]]
* LastNameBasis: He doesn't like people calling him by his first name, so everyone calls him by his last name, save Mayu, who calls him "Shige-nii".
* LikeBrotherAndSister: It's never implied to be anything romantic between him and Mayu. [[spoiler: In Book of Shadows, it's implied that Mayu has feelings for him, and in an extra chapter of Blood Drive, he confesses that he has feelings for her.]]
* [[spoiler:LonersAreFreaks: He admits to being anti-social to everyone else but Mayu. And he is a Nightmare fetishist, but still a good person]].
* {{Megane}}
* [[spoiler:NightmareFetishist: He manages to (barely) maintain his sanity by ''taking snapshots of all the corpses he finds and admiring the handiwork''. He doesn't KILL anyone, but it's still pretty reprehensible. In ''Book of Shadows'', he even begins to finger ''a corpse's wound''.]]
** [[spoiler:One Wrong Ending in his episode of ''Book of Shadows'' implies that Sachiko is intentionally keeping him alive in the GroundhogDayLoop universe in hopes of cultivating this into full-on AxCrazy.]]
* [[spoiler:RetGone: As a result of dying in Tenjin, everyone outside of Satoshi, Naomi, Yuka, Yoshiki, and Ayumi has forgotten about his existence.]]
* [[spoiler:SanitySlippage: It's hinted that he wasn't remotely insane from the beginning and became so after developing the bad habit of taking pictures of corpses, [[NightmareFetishist leaving him all flustered and amazed at how they look.]] It is true, though that, his obsession with Mayu had been there from the start; just not explicitly shown.]]
* [[spoiler:ScaryShinyGlasses: With empty eyes, too, when his insanity starts to show.]]
* SeriousBusiness: Put him in charge of a play, and he won't settle for less than perfect. [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu He slaps SACHIKO when he's coaching her because she keeps messing up lines while he's on full-strict coach mode.]] And it WORKS.

!!!Yui Shishido
-->Voiced by: Creator/MiyukiSawashiro

Class 2-9's teacher, who has a knack for connecting with her students. As a result, she's pretty well liked and respected by them.
* CoolTeacher
* {{Determinator}}: Let's see... [[spoiler:She gets a cabinet dropped on her back, her entire back is pierced with knives, and she's being baited by a sadistic ghost who tries to get her to beg for her own life over that of her students'. What does she do? Plead for him to ''leave her students alone.'' After she manages to get the cabinet off of her, she starts to wander around, bloody and injured, all while trying to hold her shattered right arm in place. We finally see her again in chapter 5, when she meets up with Ayumi... But the reunion is short lived; the floor ends up being a trapdoor, and Yui ends up holding onto the edge (''with both arms'' no less) so Ayumi can climb up and be saved. As we learn in the Extra End of chapter 4, this is what finally leads to her HeroicSacrifice]]. Yui-sensei is awesome.
* DidNotGetTheGuy: She had feelings for Tsukasa Mikuni, her friend in high school, that continued to today. [[spoiler:Any chance she may have once had is gone, as she died and all memory of her is gone]].
* {{Dojikko}}: When not being a teacher, she is ''very'' clumsy. Although she was having a fever and cold when she showed said trait, so it may have been a side effect.
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHer: In the ''Tortured Souls'' OVA, her head gets abruptly and unceremoniously [[OffWithHerHead lopped clean off by a falling plank of wood]] as opposed to her more slow and tragic death after performing a HeroicSacrifice.]]
* [[spoiler:DyingAlone: And it is [[{{Tearjerker}} heartbreaking.]]]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]
* KindheartedCatLover
* [[spoiler:OffWithHerHead: How she dies in the ''Tortured Souls'' OVA.]]
* [[spoiler:RetGone: As a result of dying in Tenjin, everyone outside of Satoshi, Naomi, Yuka, Yoshiki, and Ayumi has forgotten about her existence.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: She ships Ayumi/Yoshiki, as Yoshiki reminds her of her high school crush.

[[folder: Others appearing in ''Blood Covered'']]

!!!Naho Saenoki

A high school student with great psychic potential. She blogs about curses, and is lodging with Kibiki due to circumstances at home.

* BerserkButton: Does not like when people ask personal questions.
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: In ''Blood Covered''. She is a very helpful character, her info was vital so everyone could escape Heavenly Host and was shown to be a really nice girl when she was still alive... until she reveals her ruthless and apathetic side both times she was confronted by Ayumi after their first encounter. Her notes reveal she posted the wrong info about the Sachiko charm so more people would get sent to Heavenly Host and practically sacrificed Sayaka in order to get to Heavenly Host to make the curse stronger so Kibiki would have a greater source material to report about and doesn't seem to show any remorse for her actions' repercussions until Ayumi reveals she killed Kibiki under the influence of the darkening. Although the "Purgatory" chapter in ''Book of Shadows'' has heavy evidence that Naho did so under Sachiko's influence, given she decided to end the investigations after realizing she bit off more than she could chew and that she was being haunted by Sachiko after her investigations in the Shinozaki Estate.]]
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Much like Naomi and Ayumi. Only Naho was already possessed by the darkening before she went to Heavenly Host. She found out about the Sachiko charm and Heavenly Host when she was investigating the Shinozaki Estate. However, Sachiko started haunting her since then and eventually she realized it was too dangerous to go on with the investigations. But when she was about to convey her decision to Kibiki, she found out he had already crossed over without her. Before she crosses over, Sachiko is still haunting her and The Darkening starts taking over, leading Naho to post the wrong info on her blog and turning Naho into the {{Yandere}} spirit from ''Blood Covered''.]]
* [[spoiler:BrokenPedestal]]: [[spoiler:To Ayumi. The instructions for the Sachiko charm were posted on Naho's blog... but the instructions were incorrect, ensuring that those who followed them would be trapped in the school. She was responsible for dozens of students being caught in the school and dying there... and the worst part is, it's entirely possible the curse would have ended entirely with the original school's demolition had Naho not posted the charm. However, "Purgatory" reveals she was BrainwashedAndCrazy all along and actually wanted to end the investigations on Heavenly Host.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* CuteGhostGirl
* DeadAllAlong: At least she's honest about it. Most likely, she's retained her sense of self because of her psychic abilities.
* DespairEventHorizon: She crossed it ''twice''. The first one comes from Book of Shadows when she, after deciding to put the kibosh on the investigation realizing it's too dangerous to go on with it, comes home to tell Kibiki about it only to find out she was too late and that Kibiki had already gone on without her, and the second one when [[spoiler:she finds out she succumbed to the darknening and killed Kibiki]].
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Often described as having eyes 'like a dead fish'.
* FreakOut: [[spoiler:When Ayumi reveals that she killed Kibiki.]]
** [[spoiler:BadBlackBarf]]
* GoodIsNotNice: In her spiritual form in ''Blood Covered''.
* HairDecorations
* [[spoiler: [[HijackedByGanon Hijacked By Sachiko]] : In the manga, and heavily evidenced to be the case before she went over to Heavenly Host.]]
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedKarma]]: [[spoiler:She did it all for Kibiki...who she ended up killing when she was swallowed by the darkening.]]
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouCrazy, [[LoveMakesYouEvil Evil]], [[LoveMakesYouDumb AND Dumb]]: ''BIG TIME''. Regardless of being influenced by TheCorruption or not, everything that Naho did for Kibiki's sake after going insane only resulted in collateral damage in the long run. Going to Heavenly Host to rescue him ended in hers and Sayaka's death. In her insanity trance, her idea of helping Kibiki was posting the wrong info about the charm on her blog to trap more students in Heavenly Host so the curse would become stronger, giving Kibiki a larger source material to study. That only made Heavenly Host stronger, making it impossible to escape unless Sachiko is appeased and sped up TheCorruption taking over her, which ended up killing Kibiki. More people being trapped in Heavenly Host was also a scenario Kibiki wanted to ''avoid'']].
* {{Meganekko}}
* [[spoiler:MentorShip: She ''really'' likes her mentor, Kibiki.]]
* MsExposition
* [[spoiler:NeverMyFault]]: [[spoiler:Told Ayumi to blame herself for [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Mayu's death]], even though it was her suggestion to present Yoshikazu's doll to the ghost children that got the poor girl killed.]]
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Sayaka. [[spoiler:Until she goes insane.]]
* [[spoiler:SanitySlippage: "Purgatory" shows she was a really nice girl when still alive, had a heartwarming friendship with Sayaka, and wanted to avoid people being harmed by Sachiko, that was haunting her since her investigations of the Shinozaki Estate. After she finds Kibiki's note at her desk telling he went on to Heavenly Host without her, when Naho realized how dangerous it was to continue with the investigation after she was cursed by Sachiko, she falls in despair. Before Naho and Sayaka prepare to go to Heavenly Host, she starts to show shades of her {{Yandere}} behaviour. Given she kills Kibiki under the influence of the Darknening, and how Sachiko is shown to have a degree of control over those under the influence of the Darknening such as Naomi and Yuka, she most likely was starting to feel its effects at that point.]]
* [[StartOfDarkness Start of Darkening]]: Her descent into madness started when she came home [[spoiler:after her guest appearance at her best friend Sayaka's show was hijacked by Sachiko,]] with the resolve to put an end to the investigation on the Shinozaki Estate and Heavenly Host when the curse Sachiko placed on her became too dangerous...only to find Kibiki's note telling he went over to Heavenly Host without her. She screams and cries in absolute despair and can only resort to asking for Sayaka to perform the ritual with her so she can rescue Kibiki. She starts losing it afterwards. [[spoiler:Between the time Sayaka returns home briefly to let her mother know she was going out and the time they pulled the ritual, Naho starts showing insanity traces that indicate Sachiko was influencing the Darkening within her when she posted the wrong info on her blog.]] The Darkening only got worse from there.
* StoicSpectacles
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Would you believe that before going to Heavenly Host, she used to be an absolutely cheerful girl who was prone to make cat noises complete with gestures?
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Okay, maybe doing it all for your beloved mentor isn't ''that'' well-intentioned, but still. Although Book of Shadows indicates that she did so under the influence of [[TheCorruption The Darkening]].]]
* [[spoiler:{{Yandere}}: After being taken over by the darkening.]]

!!!Yuuya Kizami
-->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSugita

A young man from another high school (Byakudan High School) who Yuka runs into, mistaking him for Satoshi.

* BigBrotherMentor: To Yuka after she is separated from her actual big brother. [[spoiler:Subverted ''so'' damn hard.]]
** BigBrotherInstinct: Actually wants to find his own little sister. [[spoiler:There's just one problem: He doesn't ''have'' a little sister.]]
* [[spoiler:BrokenPedestal: To Touko when she sees his true colors. The point is driven home harsh when he ''punches her hard enough to knock off one of her teeth''.]]
* CoatOverTheShoulder
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasStandards: Even he's disturbed by the thought of elementary schoolers being trapped in Heavenly Host.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilCannotComprehendGood: He can't comprehend the tough love his older siblings show him. He can't see they only mean well. All sees is the opressive siblings that don't let him have his way.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: Somewhat. He was somewhat more levelheaded in his earlier times in Heavenly Host, when his classmates where still around. Him pushing Katayama down the stairs was made with the intention of snapping Ohkawa out of his denial in regards to Katayama's death. The ensuing FreakOut from Katayama, culminating in him calling Kizami a murderer was what finally made him snap and go completely insane.]]
* [[spoiler:FreudianExcuse[=/=]SpoiledBrat: As a kid, he thought himself to be this misunderstood child opressed by his elder siblings. In reality, it's quite clear that he's basically throwing a massive temper tantrum because he's not getting his way. He can't understand tough love, and for him, to be loved is simply to have people enabling his sociopath nature.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: [[spoiler:Tells Yuka to "RUN, RABBIT, RUN" just before his death. If he catches you, he says "I'VE GOTCHU!"]]
** The former ''might'"' be a ShoutOut to PinkFloyd.
* [[spoiler:HotGuysAreBastards]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Has this dynamic with Yuka.
* [[spoiler:KickTheDog: He literally kicks Yuka in the side. A flashback reveals that he once tried to kill Kurosaki's hamster with a boxcutter as a child.]]
** [[spoiler: Also, in 2U's cooking contest, he uses a spice laced with Darkening to get an advantage over Emi and Naomi.]]
* [[spoiler:LackOfEmpathy: With the interesting exception of Yuka, who he feels pity for.]]
* [[spoiler:LargeHam: He's voiced by Creator/TomokazuSugita]]
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedKarma: In 2U, he spices his dish with the Darkening to get more customers attracted to his food, giving him an advantage in the cooking contest against Emi and Naomi. Seiko finds out, and then Kizami himself gets Darkened by breathing the Darkening Spice. And THEN, Seiko uses that to her advantage to give him a full dose of his spice when he tries to attack her.]]
* [[spoiler:NotSoDifferent: An extra chapter in Blood Covered has him meet Morishige when he bumps into him and drops his phone, at which point he glances at the screen for a moment and finds one of Morishige's corpse pictures. After asking if that was Morishige's doing, he tells him "I had the feeling we're cut from the same cloth".]]
* [[spoiler:TheSociopath]]
* [[spoiler: UngratefulBastard]]: [[spoiler: In 2U, after he uses the Book of Eibon's powers to summon an otherworldly EldritchAbomination so he can have Yuka as his little sister, Yuka tends to him and he repays by, when everyone is gone, stating to himself that there'll be a next time he tries to make her his little sister.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]]: [[spoiler:Especially in the manga.]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler:WouldHitAGirl: Kicks Yuka. ''Book of Shadows'' shows that he's the one responsible for Touko's missing tooth.]]

!!!Kensuke Kurosaki
-->Voiced by: TsubasaYonaga

A young man from the same high school as Kizami, and his friend since childhood.

* AlliterativeName
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DefiantToTheEnd: He [[spoiler:fights off Kizami so Yuka can run away, and rather than be in despair when faced with death, he just tries to talk Kizami out of his sociopathy.]]
* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome: He ''punches'' Kizami when he's been stabbed prior to that. It ends up saving Yuka in the long run.]]
* ItsAllMyFault: Somewhat blames himself for [[spoiler:Kizami's sociopathic nature since, as his childhood friend, he didn't call him out on it sooner.]]
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead]]: [[spoiler:Kizami stabs him and kicks him into a pit]]. Later, when Yuka [[spoiler:realizes that Kizami is dangerous, she runs away to the room Kurosaki fell into. When Kizami catches up to her, Kurosaki punches him]]. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:he's still too injured to do much else, so Kizami kills him. We don't see or hear it, but we see the results: It's rather messy]].
* SayMyName[=/=]RunningGag: Being pushed into pits, and screaming the name of whoever pushed him as he falls in the most dramatic, hammiest way possible. [[spoiler: He does so when Kizami kicks him into a hole and when Mitsuki does so in a Wrong End in Corpse Party 2U.]]

!!!Kou Kibiki

A writer of mystery novels researching what really happened in the 1973 kidnapping and murder case. He went to Heavenly Host to investigate it and how it connects to the 1973 kidnapping and murder case.

* AdaptationExpansion: The manga adaptation expands his role by actually have him appearing as a spirit to give valuable info to the main 5.
* AlliterativeName
* AllLovingHero: He didn't want Naho to go with him to the investigation because he didn't want to risk her being trapped in Heavenly Host. He also worried about other people getting trapped in it. [[spoiler:Sadly, leaving her behind ended up in Naho causing both after she goes insane.]]
* {{Badass}}: He made some pretty idiotic decisions, such as leaving Naho behind and going to Heavenly Host on his own, when he doesn't have any spiritual powers like Naho has, before more info could be gathered about it, even if he had her well-being in mind. But still, to go over to Heavenly Host on his own volition takes balls of adamantium. He survived for quite a while as well. [[spoiler:Until Naho was taken over by [[TheCorruption The Darkening]] and killed him.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* IdiotBall: Even though he wasn't aware that he was biting off more than he could chew in regards to Heavenly Host's investigation, leaving Naho, AKA the girl with psychic powers when he has none, behind when going to Heavenly Host proved to be a bad move in the long run, even if he did it out of concern for her well-being. Even Naho thought it was stupid. It's like [[TheLegendOfZelda facing off Ganon without the Master Sword.]]
* MulticoloredHair: Has a dark blue strand on his black hair.
* SexyMentor: He fills the part quite well. [[spoiler:Naho certainly agrees!]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Leaving Naho behind was the cause of her StartOfDarkness. [[spoiler:Ultimately, it led to his demise and the demise of a good deal of students.]]

!!!Shougo Taguchi

A cameraman helping Kibiki with his case.

* ButtMonkey: Is there a time when Naho isn't putting this guy down?
* CameraFiend: A video camera at least.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* FreakOut: Has one when Naomi tries to give him back something he dropped in Chapter 5. [[spoiler:Turns out, he watched Naomi kill Seiko, which led him to believe that Naomi would kill him too.]]
* MotorMouth: Morishige views him as such.
* NiceHat
* TooKinkyToTorture: He actually enjoys being Naho's ButtMonkey.

!!!Masato Fukuroi

The chairman of the student council at Byakudan High School.

* BenevolentBoss: He has a stiff and serious personality, but is also surprisingly caring, and forgiving of Ryosuke and Tomohiro loafing around.
* BrainyBrunette
* CovertPervert: One Extra Chapter focusing on the Byakudan Students has him getting hooked with an H-Game and in Corpse Party 2U, he joins Kurosaki in his efforts to stall Sachiko as much as possible so they can continue to enjoy seeing Mitsuki being groped by the tentacles Sachiko sent on them to punish Kurosaki for insulting her. Mind you, Fukuroi is doing so when he is being [[{{Determinator}} ''crushed by tentacles himself'']].
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]: In ''Book Of Shadows'', [[spoiler:an already dying Fukuroi distracts Yoshikazu so that Mitsuki can get away, though it's ultimately Kizami who finishes him off and ends up rendering Fukuroi's sacrifice moot]].
** [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice]]
* {{Megane}}

!!!Mitsuki Yamamoto
-->Voiced by: Creator/HarukaTomatsu

The secretary of the student council at Byakudan High School. She has a strong mind, and a somewhat na´ve personality. Recently dumped her boyfriend after she discovered he was cheating on her with three other women.

* [[spoiler:{{Badass}}: Putting up an admirable, if ultimately moot fight against Yoshikazu in Book of Shadows paints her as such. Her denying Kizami the satisfaction of seeing her squirm as he killed her cements it.]]
* CoolBigSis: In presence, she gives off this vibe to her class and the student council.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DefiantToTheEnd]]: In ''Book Of Shadows''.
* HairDecorations
* FreakOut: [[spoiler:Satoshi and Yuka find her in the midst of one. Despite trying to speak to her, she's... not very receptive. The next time you see her, she's dead.]]
* TheDreaded: A more comedic example. She was this back at her own school, to the point of having the nickname "Hellgirl Mitsuki".

!!!Emi Urabe

A student who attends Byakudan High School, and Mitsuki's friend since their first year. She likes fortune telling, and was the one who suggested the friendship ritual to the others at Byakudan.

* BigBeautifulWoman: Not a textbook definition, but she is quite attracive and is shown to be a bit plumper than other girls in the series.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Tries to do this to Ohkawa to snap him out of his belief that Katayama is alive, unsucessfully. She is understandably freaking out because Sachiko was drawing near.
* FreakOut: During all her appearances in ''Book of Shadows''.
* PluckyGirl
* {{Meganekko}}

!!!Touko Kirisaki
-->Voiced by: SeikoYoshida

A student who attends Byakudan High School. Like Emi, she's fond of fortune telling. Usually lively and cheerful, but occasionally will act surprisingly nervous.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Averted. She dislikes Shimada for his flighty relationship with girls and prefers the "cool and spotless" Kizami. [[spoiler:The poor girl has no idea.]]
* HairDecorations: Her ponytail.
* FreakOut: [[spoiler:Satoshi finds her in the middle of one in Chapter 4 if he fails to save Naomi, and she ends up trying to kill him.]]
* PluckyGirl
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Name With An H]]: The official English translation spells her name as "Tohko".

!!!Nana Ogasawara

A seventh grader at Musashigawa Girls' Junior High. Her story is told in the Extra Chapter 1, where she agrees to help a ghost find the items that were taken from him. [[spoiler:In chapter 5, Satoshi, Naomi, and Yuka find her skeletal remains in the Dissection Room]].

* [[spoiler:{{Cruel and Unusual Death}}: ''Book of Shadows'' reveals how she died while you control Sayaka. It isn't pretty. Both her legs were amputated, then she is dragged into the dissection room ''while she's still alive'' by Yoshikazu and put on a table, where he proceeds to pull out her tongue with large pliers. She only dies once the tongue comes out and she bleeds to death.]]
* HairDecorations
* PluckyGirl
* ShesGotLegs: According to Mayu.

!!!Chihaya Yamase

A seventh grader and classmate at the same school as Nana. [[spoiler:In chapter 5, Satoshi, Naomi, and Yuka find her remains in a bucket in the Dissection Room]].

* SpoiledSweet

!!!Nari Amatoya

A seventh grader at the same school as Nana. Although she and Nana are in different classes, they are old friends. [[spoiler:In chapter 5, Satoshi, Naomi, and Yuka find her name tag (but not her body) in a bucket in the Dissection Room. Book of Shadows reveals that she was cooked alive in burning hot oil]].

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: She died cooked alive in hot oil.
* HairDecorations
* HairTriggerTemper: Very prone to losing her patience.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She is very harsh to Chihaya and seems cold at first, but she still cares deeply about her friends.
* PerpetualFrowner: She always has a serious expression in all of her appearances.


[[folder: First entered in ''Corpse Party: Musume'']]
!!!Miyu Shinohara
Exclusive to the manga series, Miyu was with the First Five listening to Ayumi's horror stories and got sucked into Tenjin together with them, though he and Yuka were separated from the group in the process.

* CombatTentacles: He was a victim of one.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Attributed to his adorable schoolgirl looks.
* OffWithHisHead: Standard fatal fate.
* PassionateSportsGirl: Only that he looks like a girl. According to an omake, not all the boys are aware of who he really is. At most, only a few notice a bulge coming from his bloomers, but another passed it off. Other than that, he likes sports and reliably ace in them.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: He can be a convincing schoolgirl.
* YouGoGirl: According to an omake, he was cheered by the guys as such while they're unaware of his true sex.


[[folder: The new victims of ''Corpse Party: Book of Shadows'']]

* BeautyMark: A small one in the left side of her mouth.
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* GenkiGirl
* HairDecorations
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: She even agrees to enter Heavenly Host with Naho to rescue Kibiki and Taguchi.
* POVBoyPosterGirl: Sorta. The main character of the series overall seems to be Satoshi, although the story itself seems to focus more on Naomi and Ayumi. And for some reason, in "Book of Shadows"'s game icon in the PSP has Sayaka staying in front of Heavenly Host, but she only has an appearance in the 4th chapter.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Naho.
* SchoolgirlLesbian: Corpse Party 2U pretty much cements her as this, with the amount of ShipTease and LesYay vibes she has with Naho, outright ''nosebleeding'' when she finds herself on top of Naho, fawning over Naho, engaging into SkinshipGrope towards Aiko and later Naomi.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Naho, to the point of agreeing to go to Heavenly Host with her with no hesitation.

!!!Tsukasa Mikuni
-->Voiced by: Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto
A young man who attended Kisaragi Academy six years ago with Yui. They apparently dated, but never even kissed.

* {{Determinator}}: Nothing seems to faze this guy. Not even ''Yoshie''.

!!!Kai Shimada
A student who attends Byakudan High School, and who has a one-sided rivalry with Kizami.

* {{Bishonen}}: Models for a men's magazine.
* BullyingADragon: He pulls a knife on Kizami to intimidate him. [[spoiler:It ends as well as you'd expect.]]
* TheCasanova
* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When the entrance door is open and they're presented with a chance to escape, Kai doesn't hesitate to leave everyone behind, thinking solely of his survival. Then, to twist the knife in, he makes a shallow attempt to charm Touko into coming with him when he showed no interest in her even before they performed the Sachiko ritual.
* FieryRedhead
* JerkAss: Touko regards him as "the slimeball to end all slimeballs". He earned that opinion with gusto.
* HandsomeLech: According to Touko, he has ''10 girlfriends''.
* HotGuysAreBastards: Very much so. [[spoiler:Not to the extent of Kizami, but still...]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When they open the entrance door of Heavenly Host, he is ''very'' quick to run away from there.
* SmallNameBigEgo: 3 letters, VERY full of himself.
* UnknownRival

!!!Ryousuke Katayama
A student who attends Byakudan High School. He enjoys video games and is good friends with Ohkawa. We first meet him in Extra Chapter 4 of ''Blood Covered'', but it isn't until ''Book of Shadows'' that we see him in the main game.

* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* [[spoiler:OfCorpseHesAlive]]: [[spoiler:Even after he bleeds to death, Ohkawa insists that he's alive. Of course, it has less to do with deceit and more to do with the fact that Ohkawa is losing it.]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Ohkawa.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:He loses his leg in a trap and bleeds to death. His death causes Ohkawa to go nuts. After Kizami pushes his body down the stairs in an attempt to prove that he's dead, Ohkawa panics even ''more'', calling Kizami a murderer. This causes Kizami to have his "epiphany": It doesn't matter whether the school kills you or he does.]]

!!!Tomohiro Ohkawa
A student who attends Byakudan High School. He likes cute things and video games. We first meet him in Extra Chapter 4 of ''Blood Covered'', but it isn't until ''Book of Shadows'' that we see him in the main game.

* [[spoiler:DoomedByCanon]]
* FreakOut: [[spoiler:He doesn't take Katayama's death very well. He insists that he's still alive and needs to get to the hospital. Kizami attempts to "help" him see the truth by pushing Katayama's body down the stairs to prove he's dead. This only freaks Ohkawa out more.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:In a way. Kizami isn't exactly sane, but his "Whether you're killed by the ghosts or killed by me... makes no difference" epihpany was caused by Ohkawa calling him a murderer during his FreakOut.]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Katayama.

A victim of the 1973 Tenjin Elementary kidnapping and murder case, she appears as a ghost with the top of her head missing.

* AlliterativeName
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Thanks to the darkening. She temporarily gets better when she's appeased.]]
* CreepyChild
* TongueTrauma
* UndeadChild
* TheUnintelligible: Because her tongue is missing. Along with [[OffWithHisHead the top half of her head]].

!!!The girl in red/[[spoiler:Sachiko Shinozaki]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/IkueOtani
The [[spoiler:supposed]] only survivor of the 1973 Tenjin Elementary kidnapping and murder case, she provided the testimony that got the killer arrested. After the incident, her family apparently moved away, and her whereabouts are currently unknown.

[[spoiler:In actuality, she is a malevolent spirit, and the one behind the 1973 incident. After possessing the supposed killer and making him kidnap the other children, she killed them herself and laid the blame on him.]]

[[spoiler:She herself was the victim of an incident in 1953, where she was killed after witnessing the headmaster of the school kill her mother, who then went on to hide her remains in the basement. Her hatred towards the headmaster and envy towards those still alive ended up twisting her personality into what it is in the game.]]

* [[spoiler:AlliterativeName]]
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: In ''Blood Drive''.]]
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad]]
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: Sometimes she likes to play the ally, or act like a helpless child, before turning around and killing people. In one bad end, she pretended to be Mitsuki by wearing her face as a mask, and briefly flirted with Morishige before revealing herself.]] Just to mix things up.
* CreepyChild
* [[spoiler:CuteAndPsycho]]
* [[spoiler:DeaderThanDead: See HeroicSacrifice.]]
* [[spoiler:EnfantTerrible]]
* TheHeavy
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn: In ''Blood Drive'', since she has been appeased. She becomes a close ally to Ayumi.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice[=/=]RedemptionEqualsDeath: Uses up all her energy to turn back time so that Ayumi can have another chance to save her friends.]]
* LargeHam: Taken up to eleven in Book of Shadows.
* [[spoiler:MoralityPet]]: [[spoiler:Subverted. Both ''Blood Covered'' and ''Book of Shadows'' imply that on some level she genuinely ''likes'' Yuka, and she actually saves Yuka from Kizami in Blood Covered's True Ending path. But Sachiko's too AxCrazy for this to actually protect Yuka -- in the ''Mire'' chapter from ''Book of Shadows'', it's revealed that it was actually Sachiko who killed Yuka after Kizami catches her in that Bad End of the original game.]]
* SlasherSmile
* StringyHairedGhostGirl
* [[spoiler:TongueTrauma: Has been on the giving and receiving end of this.]]
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior
* UndeadChild
* [[spoiler:UsedToBeASweetKid]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler:WoundedGazelleGambit]]: [[spoiler:Pulls this in ''Book Of Shadows'', in one of the Wrong Ends and in Chapter 6.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Yandere}}: At least at first. Sachiko started off killing so that her mother would have company, but after a while she began to enjoy it too much. After a while, Sachiko was just too far gone to stop. Yoshie's diary notes that Sachiko probably didn't even remember her own mother.]]

!!!Yoshikazu Yanagihori
A teacher at Tenjin Elementary, and the son of the headmaster. He was arrested for the kidnapping and murder of the three victims in 1973 [[spoiler:but was actually being manipulated by Sachiko]].

* AlliterativeName
* CoolTeacher: Used to be one until his mental illness struck. [[spoiler:An entry in Yoshie Shinozaki's diary suggests that she ''might'' have had something to do with the mental illness.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Being controlled by Sachiko into kidnapping the three children and then witnessing her kill them in cold blood]] completely breaks him and leads to him being...
* [[spoiler:TheDragon]]
* DrivenToSuicide
* [[spoiler:DropTheHammer: His zombie occasionally appears with a giant mallet. God help you if he catches you.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: What he was prior to kidnappings. [[spoiler:In Chapter 6 of ''Book Of Shadows'', he shows a lot of reluctance to kill [[OlderThanTheyLook Yuka]] despite Sachiko's orders. Teenagers are fair game, though.]]
* InsanityDefense: How he avoided going to jail. He actually ''was'' pretty insane at that point, so a mental hospital was probably the best place for him. However, he ended up escaping, broke into the school, and hung himself in the basement.
* TheJuggernaut
* ManChild: At the time of the incident, a disease had apparently caused him to regress to a childlike mental state, to the point where he couldn't even convey his thoughts. People noted that he was still a rather kind person even when he reached that point, so it was almost hard to believe that he'd commit such horrific murders. [[spoiler:Which makes sense, seeing as he ''didn't'' commit the murders.]]
* [[spoiler:SinsOfOurFathers: Yoshikazu's mental illness and regression are heavily implied to be caused by being cursed by Yoshie, Sachiko's mother. When you find her diary in-game, Yoshie mentions her hatred for Principal Yanagihori is so great, she cursed him and everyone in his bloodline. This basically means he's the very first innocent victim of Yoshie's and Sachiko's rage: even before the murder of the three children, Yoshikazu was already a powerless puppet under Sachiko's thrall.]]
* TheUnintelligible

!!!Yoshie Shinozaki
Sachiko's mother, she was a doctor and a health official for Tenjin Elementary. She died after falling from a stairway landing in the school. [[spoiler:She was the other victim of the incident in 1953. After she escaped being raped by the principal, he accidentally caused her death whilst chasing after her in an attempt to keep her quiet. Her death was subsequently covered up as an accident.]]

[[spoiler:She appears in-game as the ghost in the infirmary.]]

* [[spoiler:BiggerBad]]: [[spoiler:The final chapter of Book of Shadows shows that she may have been the one who created the supernatural version of Heavenly Host in the first place, using a ritual from the Book of Shadows, a powerful grimoire passed down in the Shinozaki family. It is also hinted at that her magic may have been involved in Sachiko's death. And she was the one who created or at least discovered the ritual that would become the Sachiko Ever After charm eventually... Prior to their demise.]]
* HelloNurse

!!!Hinoe Shinozaki
Ayumi's older sister. She's obviously the one Ayumi inherited her love of the occult from.

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Saves Ayumi and Naomi from dying when their paper dolls are burning in ''Book of Shadows''. Unfortunately, following this is...]]
* HotWitch: Grown up and has magic powers.
* [[spoiler:[[OffWithHisHead Off With Her Head]]: ...She dies this way in ''Book of Shadows''. Right in front of Ayumi, no less.]]
* {{Oneesama}}: Very soft-spoken and ladylike, and very encouraging of Ayumi.

!!!Natsumi Nakashima
-->Voiced by: SeikoYoshida
Naomi's mother.

* AdultsAreUseless: Played with in ''Book of Shadows''. She doesn't believe anything Naomi says about [[spoiler:Seiko]] and thinks that Naomi has simply created an imaginary friend. However, this is justified as [[spoiler:Seiko was erased from existence following her death in Tenjin]], and Natsumi does try to get help for her daughter by speaking with a psychiatrist, doing the best she can with the information she has.
* AlliterativeName

!!!Haruna Kizami
Kizami's older sister.

* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sister]]
* HimeCut
* CoolBigSis[=/=]{{Oneesama}}: Toyed with. Her [[AllThereInTheManual profile]] indicates she enjoys flower arrangement, but she is rather harsh toward her younger brother. [[spoiler:Because said brother has a tendency to torture animals.]]

!!!Yukie Suzumoto
-->Voiced by: SeikoYoshida
Mayu's mother. She is sad about her daughter having to transfer and resents her workaholic husband for not protesting against his job transfer.

!!!Yuu Shinohara
One of Seiko's younger brothers.

* PromotionToParent: [[spoiler:In Book of Shadows, we see he is this to his younger siblings. It is unclear if he was always this or if the retcon of Seiko made him this]].

!!!Kokuhaku Akaboshi
A girl from Misato Municipal Brotherhood High that Satoshi and Yuka encounter in Chapter 3. Despite their attempts to communicate with her, she doesn't really respond. [[spoiler:Her Name Tag is found in Chapter 5, indicating that she either died shortly after Satoshi and Yuka left or was already dead. Going back to the art room when controlling Kizami in Chapter 3 reveals that the Darkening took over her.]]

* EmotionlessGirl
* MadnessMantra: Repeats one to try to keep the Darkening away.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Her first appearance shows her constantly repeating a MadnessMantra, not even acknowledging Satoshi nor Yuka's presence. By the time you get back to where she was when playing as Kizami, she's already completely taken by the darknening, her body completely covered by the Darkening's shadow, moaning in pain. And unlike virtually all other students encountered or mentioned in the games, she doesn't get any role expanding.

!!!Haruyuki Inumaru

A second year student at Paulowina Academy. He's a childhood friend of Sayaka, and fell in love with her. She harshly rejects him however, which he doesn't seem to mind.

* TheChewToy: Boy, is he ''ever''.
* HopelessSuitor: He takes all of Sayaka's harsh responses to his declarations of love as Sayaka being {{Tsundere}}, thinks they're destined to be together for being childhood friends, and doesn't seem to notice that she's actually a SchoolgirlLesbian infatuated with Naho.
* PluckyComicRelief
* [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide: Due to his high spiritual energy, Inumaru's transformation is quite different when he succumbs to the Darkening. Instead of red eyes, he gets golden eyes and red symbols on his face. He also loses his humanity and starts acting like a dog with rabies and [[ThePowerOfHate super strength]].]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Sayaka can give this guy a MegatonPunch but Inumaru ''will'' take it as gestures of affection, regardless of what Sayaka says.

!!!Aiko Niwa

Another student from Paulowina Academy, with a knack for money and paranormal items, also possessing spiritual powers like Naho.

* HiddenBuxom: As part of a Quiz game Naho's group was taking part at so they could retrieve Kibiki from Sachiko's clutches, they need to find out who has the largest chest size out of all 3 girls present. Naho and Sayaka have a [[SkinshipGrope hands-on]] approach to find out Aiko's and she has, in fact, the largest chest out of all of them, which her outfit does a good job at concealing.
* ItsAllAboutMe: She only cares for her personal gain, and is even willing to do Sachiko's bidding if it means getting her hands on spiritual items.
* [[MoneyDearBoy Money And Spiritual Items, Dear Boy]]
* [[spoiler: OffWithHerHead]]: Happens to her in Blood Drive, [[spoiler: but after Sachiko sends Ayumi back in time, Ayumi is able to prevent it.]]
* SmugSnake: Every time she finds herself in a position above other people, particularly Naho, she pushes their buttons for her personal amusement. When she's put in a lower or uncomfortable position, she cracks considerably, which shows in her reaction to being on the receiving end of the abovementioned SkinshipGrope
