Suzuno Ohsugi / Byakko no Miko

Voiced by: Midori Nakazawa (Japanese)

Toki Ohsugi

  • The Caretaker: Inplied to be this for Suzuno in her last days.
  • Cassandra Truth: He never believed his grandmother Suzuno's claims about the Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho.
  • Genre Savvy: Whether he believes Suzuno's stories or not, he immediately recognizes Keisuke and Tetsuya's arguments and decides to take them to his grandmother's presence.

Madoka Ohtori and Misaki Himuro

  • Always Save the Girl: Madoka's main goal is getting Misaki back no matter what.
  • Expy: Of Miaka and Yui. Though Misaki is not taken back to Japan after she and Madoka get swallowed inside the book.
    • In Madoka's case, Word of God says that the game manufacturers created her as Miaka's replacement because they thought that it would be contradicting for Miaka to be the main character in the game as, in the original media, she was only deemed to love Tamahome.
  • Fix Fic: The player can sorta pull this through Madoka, since depending on their actions they can make her prevent the deaths of Chiriko and Nuriko or keep Amiboshi from falling into the river...
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Misaki has super long hair, contrasting with Yui's boyish haircut as well as Madoka's own.
  • Meaningful Name: "Ohtori" is written with the character for "Red Phoenix"
  • Multiple Endings: This being basically a Dating Sim, the players can give Madoka more than one ending. This includes: "Normal Ending" (few love points with anyone), "Friendship Ending" (Misaki has the most points), Disappointing Love Ending (Madoka gets a guy to love her but must go home alone since their love points aren't enough), "Reincarnation Ending" (Madoka has enough points with her beau to get him to be reincarnated a la Taka Sukunami), and "Staying Behind Ending" (if the player unlocks a certain scene and also gets Madoka enough love points with a boyfriend, one can choose between the Reincarnation Ending and a new one where she stays in the Book with her beloved).
  • Player Character: Madoka, as the girl who takes Miaka's "place" in the Suzaku Ibun game.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Madoka is a Grade A, when in her school uniform.

Voiced by: Mika Doi
  • Action Girl: In her prime and when she reverts her own age and Tokaki's during the Suzaku-Seiryuu Era.

  • Time Master: Her Seishi power.
  • What Does She See in Him?: She and Tokaki. It's stated that he actually met little Tamahome when Subaru kicked him out of home and he had to become a traveller by force.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: A sweet and loving wife, she can still keep her lecherous husband in line and won't hesitate to tell him when he's wrong. That, and she's very devoted to both her family and her beliefs as an ex Seishi.
