A beautiful, enigmatic woman who died prior to the start of the game.

  • All There in the Manual: Her name is revealed to be Monika Drevis.
  • Cleavage Window: Her outfit has one.
  • Hidden Eyes: Her ghost form.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: It's revealed early on she dealt with illness, and we see her coughing in a flashback. Subverted, since that's not what killed her.
  • Love Makes You Evil

Aya's father's assistant.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Her motivation throughout the game.
