Setoprotagonist of Fragile Dreams, when his grandfather passes away, Seto inherits his blue stone and follows his instructions to locate a "red tower to the East" in hopes of finding other survivors.
- Forceful Kiss: Between him and Crow
- Hates Being Alone: What motivates him to leave the observatory and head east to find other survivors.
- It May Help You on Your Quest: The blue stone in Seto's locket is practically useless. Word of God states it's a "high efficiency crystal computer" that enables Seto to see ghosts and spirits.
Voiced by: Miku Yoshikawa (Japanese), Eden Riegel (English)Ren is a mysterious silver-hair girl, and the first human Seto encounters after leaving the observatory. Unfortunately, she seems wary of him and runs away, leading him to chase after her throughout the game.
- Apocalypse Maiden: Shin intends to use Ren as the new "catalyst"; averted by the end of the game.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Ren is barefoot throughout the game, though given the setting it might be Barefoot Poverty.
- Flower in Her Hair
- Hair Color Dissonance: Although the game clearly states Ren has silver hair, cut-scenes (animated and in-game) show it to be clearly white. Recall that Seto is the one who dubs the moon "silver", while Ren herself calls it "white", implying the dissonance comes from Seto's point-of-view, not the players.
- Ill Girl: Expanded in the post-game manga, where Ren needs medicine to stabilize her illness; unfortunately, she's running out of it. Your Days Are Numbered are certainly in play by the last chapter.
- Mysterious Waif: Ren fits the archetype - no back-story to explain her origins, no reason as to why Shin uses her to be the second catalyst for Class Cage, yet is the primary motivation for Seto to pursue her.
- Mystical White Hair: A mysterious figure for about three quarters of the game, as the only other human besides his grandfather that Seto has ever seen.
Voiced by: Umeka Shoji (Japanese), Nicole Balick (English)An interactive digital assistant found in the subway tunnels, Personal Frame (or "PF) helps Seto in return for rescuing her from a lonely fate.
- Artificial Human: Is an android
- Forceful Kiss: To Seto
- Idiots Cannot Catch Colds: One of Crow's taunts when he steals Seto's locket
- Killed Off for Real: Similar to PF, his batteries run out, right as he was coming close to finding out information about his origins.
- Mouthy Kid: Although he's actually a nice guy
- Ridiculously Human Robot
- Robotic Reveal
- Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Subversion. He's more mischievous than he is sneaky.
- Apocalypse Maiden: She was the "catalyst" during the first use of the Glass Cage.
- Bandage Babe
- Cute Ghost Girl
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Has a teddy bear on her right arm
- Mysterious Waif
- Cute Ghost Girl
- Older Than They Look: She's the spirit of a dying old woman.
- With This Ring: Seto must find her ring in the hotel so she can die at peace.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Try not to tell us you don't feel for the guy when you realize his Psychic Powers brought him nothing but pain and misery.
- Dead All Along: Though we don't find this out until much later
- Megane: He wears glasses
- Psycho Electro: Shin is a major aversion. While he does have Shock and Awe and is the Big Bad, he's a very calm and collected person, and never seems particularly insane except for his irritation with vocal communication (which he mainly uses to deflect questions about his actions). He only freaks out during his Motive Rant, and Sai makes him pull a Heel–Face Turn in the middle of it following her declaration of love.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Shin agreed to let himself be the first test subject in the early stages of a project that would boost human empathy to the point where verbal language would be unnecessary. However, he only picked up on the selfish and negative emotions of those around him, leading him to believe that Humans Are the Real Monsters, thus relegating to activating Class Cage again for a second time, which would really be The End of the World as We Know It. All this is stopped when he realized Sai was in love with him all along.

- Intrepid Merchant
- Please Wake Up: The Merchant collects and scrounges around for anything shiny so his "princess" can smile again. Unfortunately, the "princess" died in her cradle; the Merchant doesn't even realize this when Seto wants to tell the truth. If it wasn't for Sai, the Merchant might've either completely broken down into despair, or possibly killed the boy on the spot.
