Your body is priceless, so why not protect it with the best money has to offer? Daichi “Tiny Mountain” Fujimoto has become known as one of the best and intimidating bodyguards in Japan, despite his young age and shorter than average height. Primarily working with fellow minors Daichi has successfully escorted and protected those ranging from Idols to the nameless wealthy from threats such as the press, fanatic admirers, and even themselves. [[spoiler: He is executed in Chapter 3 for Si-Hoo's murder.]]

* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath: He is given a Monobear plushie to carry to the top of a building, while dodging gunfire. When he gets to the top of the building, Monobear appears and shoots him.]]
* NiceGuy
* TheStoic: [[spoiler: Even after stripping in the first trial, Daichi remains completely calm and composed, though with a slight blush on his cheeks.]]

Known as the One-Eyed Dragon of Sebring due to the fact that fellow racers often only get the chance to see one eye during the race, Date Masamune is a young and well-accomplished sports car racer. He came onto the scene just a year before his acceptance into Hope’s Peak academy, and his emergence and popularity came as a welcomed surprise by racing fans all over. Quiet and to the point, his stoicism belies his simplicity and easy-going nature; just so long as you give him space. [[spoiler: He is one of two characters to be moved over to the Kaze side.]]

!!Hachirou Shibata
!!!Super High School Level Animal Caretaker
If you hadn’t heard the name of Hachirou Shibata until it was listed as one of the students to attend Hope’s Peak Academy, well, you’re not alone. Even some of those in Sapporo who frequently pay patronage to the Sit, Shake, Style ☆ pet salon don’t know him by his name, and yet if asked about the tall, gentle employee holding their dog’s leash, all that would leave their mouths are glowing reviews. Instead, his focus lies in animal shelters and farm owners, whose requests for aid in rehabilitation, training, and grooming do not go unheard. No animal has ever been a waste of his effort and care, and it is through this philosophy that Hachirou found an invitation from Hope’s Peak Academy one quiet morning.

* AnimalMotifs: Bears!
* BirdsOfAFeather: With the other animal-related talents, Hinatea and (sort of) Rhiannon.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Specifically, animals.

!!Haru Uotani
!!!Super High School Level Technical Support
Call centers are not exactly the best places for talent to flourish, and certainly not somewhere you'd expect Hope's Peak Academy to scout potential students. And likewise, Haru Uotani is not someone you’d immediately expect to be accepted into such a place. The youngest triplet in a family raised by a single mother, Haru grew up having been all but personally raised on computers and the Internet. Their father worked as a technical repairman before their parents’ divorce, and their earliest childhood memories revolve around watching him work. Since then, they’ve taken up their own interest in the subject, focusing more so on the software side of things than the hardware— coding and debugging applications are one of those things that comes naturally to them. Given their talents, it was only natural then that when their family fell on hard times, they rose to the occasion. With their brother trying to save up for college himself and their mother needing financial assistance after both an abrupt move to the city and multiple knee surgeries, Haru took it upon themself to drop out of high school in their third year, taking a low-level technical support assistant position at Fujitsu Ltd. in the Minato ward of Tokyo. Despite their intimidating appearance and reckless teenage attitude outside of work, they leave that at the door when they go into work, focusing all of their attention on providing clients with the help they need; while only being at the company for less than a year, they’re already one of the most productive workers in their line of business within the division. While not anything they can picture themselves doing for the rest of their life, it pays the bills, and their drive and passion for computers overshadows the tedious nature of the job. They had dreamed of someday returning back to high school and graduating once and for all, hoping to earn a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the University of Tokyo and pursuing a real career in web development in their twenties… so of course they were ecstatic over the surprise unexpected arrival of their acceptance letter into one of the best high schools in the country.

Hikaru is the youngest son of a hard working family of carpenters. Despite his family history, Hikaru planned on blazing his own career path toward becoming an architect. He has been working diligently toward officially earning the prestigious title between maintaining his other responsibilities. Hope’s Peak acknowledged his efforts and saw fit to bestow the title of Super High-School Level Architect (as incentive) upon Hikaru in addition to inviting him into the 91st class. He learned much during his time with the rest of his class and eventually moved on to pursue other projects. But finding work as an architect without the official title has proven incredibly difficult. [[spoiler: He is the first victim, found with a stake sticking out of his forehead. It's later revealed that Date killed him.]]

With the hour of midnight growing close, the screech of high voices and the flutter of leathery wings resounds through the air like the echo of church bells. Fear not, however; for many, the arrival of bats may bring about apprehension and anxiety, but for adolescent chiropterologist, Hinatea Kudo, the sound spells out opportunity. This young adventurer earned her claim to fame by daring to go further than anyone else into the caves surrounding her mountain home, the Kudo Animal Conservatory, located in Nokogiriyama, and discovering a true treasure. After successfully managing to not only observe it but contribute greatly into creating a stable scientific profile for it, Hinatea Kudo became a known name in the scientific community for discovering a previously unknown species of bat, which now carries on her legacy as part of the genus Vespertilliondae, family Murinae, Latin scientific name of Murina kudo. This discovery cannoned her into a place of recognition in the world-wide zoological community and on to the radar of Hope’s Peak Academy, and her face onto the covers of many well-reputed scientific journals. [[spoiler: She's the victim of Chapter 6, killed by partial decapitation.]]

In modern Japan, the rise of mass produced ball-jointed dolls has come to overshadow the traditional doll making style of years past, but one young man’s work has brought a keen eye to look back upon the past quite fondly with renewed interest. Hyouri Himeno has opened the dusty old attic of the art-doll world and set Ningyou back in it’s rightful place. Ningyou - the umbrella term for a number of traditional doll styles most popular during the Edo Period - has been a craft favored by the Himeno family for generations. Any hinamatsuri is not complete without at least one display from the Himeno Atelier, and they are happy to provide! Though Hyouri himself focusses more on Ichimatsu, or huggable play dolls, and his more recent and celebrated work with Iki Ningyou. Choosing mainly to work with wood, his dolls look just as smooth and soft as ones made of bisque or porcelain. However, there is a strict no touch policy at all Hyouri’s exhibitions. Art galleries around the country report that he has extensive lists of specific care instructions for his work as well. Meanwhile, Hyouri himself is a rather quiet figure, not often obliging for interviews, being curt and somewhat apprehensive discussing his work. One thing is for certain though - and that’s Hyouri's love and care for his dolls; especially ‘Kana-chan’. [[spoiler: He is executed for the murder of Hinatea.]]

Jericho “MCP” Mackenzie is an Enigma until 3 years ago, when the young man and his friend Corey Martin began running a podcast called “Hack Your Mind” - a cyberpunk and counterculture-themed podcast that discussed, at length the merits and mechanics of Lucid Dreaming, and dreaming in general. Over time, the show gathered steam to become an international leader in Lucid Dream research, consistently remaining #1 in the health and wellness charts, even spawning a self-hosted Japanese sister show, “Yume O Kaimei”. And while it’s hard to say whether his show’s success owes to the hard hitting, in-depth study of dreaming it covers or MCP Mackenzie’s status in the eyes of the world as “The Wolfman Jack of Pop Psychology”, it is abundantly clear what brought Hope’s Peak to seek him out - his unparalleled knowledge of the psychology and physiology of the dreaming mind. [[spoiler: He is the first student to be executed, despite being innocent.]]

Chances are, if you've been on the internet long enough, you've heard of them...furries. If you know anything about fursuits, you know about the top dog, Jungo Inukai, better known online by his fursona's name, Shibu the shiba inu. Want a personalized fursuit commission? If you want the best, Inukai's your guy. Influenced by online communities, pop culture, and other artists, Inukai's fursuits are widely hailed as the best around, both within the fursuiting scene and by outside observers. You want a cartoony suit? You got it! Looking for a hyper realistic suit? He's got your back there, too. Need just a head? He'll do anything if you can pay him. The quality of Inukai's work is always impeccable, giving his work an air of serious professionalism one might expect from someone who's been in the industry for a good several years. The guy behind the mask, however, isn't what you might expect from his work. Inukai himself is far from any semblance of uptight. He could be best be compared to a young pre-teen who only just discovered deviantArt; he's bouncy, talks a lot,and is a little bit obnoxious. Or perhaps obnoxious isn't quite the right word; it's more like if a dog were to be reincarnated into a teenage boy, it would become the being known as Jungo Inukai. Either way, he's always had a penchant for arts and crafts and mascot characters, so maybe it was fate that he would become the Super High School Level Fursuiter and attend the prestigious Hope’s Peak Academy.

It’s hard to tell where he’ll show up next, but wherever he goes, you know he’s going to take the locals for a totally radical spin.

Nobody's exactly sure where Masuyo Fujioka came from, as her sudden rise in worldwide fame seemed to have come from her after the publication of her book “The Grimoire for the Beginner Witch: A Guidebook To All Art Witchcraft and Occult.” However, a long-time follower can easily tell you that Masuyo’s teaching of witchcraft has been going on for years, where it all started as a little blog that a young Masuyo maintained until it grew into a web series where each week Masuyo would either discuss a new type of witchcraft, spell, or ritual one could learn to better fit their supernatural lifestyle. With these preaching, Masuyo was able to kickstart the second wave of neo witchcraft, something that hasn’t happened since the 1970s in the United States. While some people are convinced this is nothing more than a popular fad for her followers - all girls and nonbinary folk ranging from ages 13-30 -, the sheer number of people absolutely devoted to her work and most scholars are beginning to say otherwise: that Masuyo’s presence in the world of spiritualism will be permanent.

‘Drafted’ typically carries a negative connotation, but it was a word that brought one Midori Kodama to success in life. Designated as the point guard on his high school team, Kodama is praised for his speed and technique in addition to his ability to excel despite his shorter height compared to most other players. He holds an estimated 89% free throw average as a high schooler and is a fierce and consistent ball handler in any game he plays. Having helped his high school team reach Nationals, he soon found himself in newspapers that glorified him as a Jack-of-all-Stats MVP. Many speculate that he will be drafted into the National Basketball League and possibly later even become one of the youngest players in history to represent Japan in the Olympics, a common theory being that these events will occur shortly after his high school graduation. Talk of this eventually led to Hope’s Peak Academy taking note of the boy, declaring him the Super High-School Level Basketball Player. [[spoiler: He is the killer of Chapter 2, being the one who killed Nana Ito. He is correctly caught after a confession and executed.]]

Polished, well put together, the dream team: these are the names for Nana Ito and her horse, Golden Apple, in the dressage world. As long-term students at the Alsikkan Farm while overseas in the United States, Nana fell in love with the art of dressage and with horses themselves. Noticing her natural talent, her coach and other instructors took their time with her, getting her involved with the United States Dressage Federation, and trained her throughout her years. As a junior, she was encouraged to try competing, and did her best, matched with the easygoing Akhal-Teke known as Golden Apple. After two years of grueling competitions together, it was time to strike out for the big bucks - the North American Juniors and Young Riders' Championships. When she took first overall, she knew that's when she had made it, and when they returned back to Japan the next school year, Hope's Peak knew that she had achieved a very rare talent indeed for Japan - someone capable of moving on to the professional ranks of equestrian eventing, and they invited her to the school. [[spoiler: Nana is the victim of the second chapter, revealed to have been killed by Midori.]]

It’s only natural that some things go best in pairs. Socks, headphones, kidneys -- the list goes on and on. But for Riku Fujino, the most important pair of them all has always been the manzai duo. Growing up in Nishinari-ku, Osaka, Riku was enamored with the lively and energetic stand up comics since she was a child, and as an adolescent she took to practicing amateur routines in local retirement homes and school festivals with her childhood friend, Sora Nishida. In spite of their young age and the fact that the two were briefly separated by attending different high schools, rigorous practice and dedication earned them a spot in the nationally broadcasted NHK Kamigata Manzai Contest. Much to everyone’s surprise, Riku and Sora’s self-proclaimed owarai kombi sleeper sensation, lovingly dubbed ‘HALF-HORSE’ for one of their famous routines involving a two-person equine costume, took first place amongst the rookie competitors and earned them acclaim throughout Japan. As the tsukkomi -- or ‘straight man’ -- of the manzai duo, Riku affects a somewhat sensible (if not bewildered and frustrated) persona to act as a foil for Sora’s wilder boke -- or ‘funny man’ antics. She is well-known for her tendency to get more and more flustered as the dialogue goes on, which generally results in a comedically timed explosion at the climax of their act. Though she is more physically reserved than Sora, Riku is not above taking part in slapstick, and is famed for tripping and frequently dropping her glasses on stage as part of her routine. [[spoiler: She is one of two characters to be moved over to the Kaze side.]]

Born and raised in Tornado Alley, Yona has been obsessed with tornadoes from a young age and began storm chasing seriously as soon as she got a driver’s permit. Her popular storm chasing vlog became her claim to fame, entertaining viewers with her fast-talking commentary and her infectious enthusiasm for all things weather. Things were going great for Yona until an ironic twister of fate leveled her home, prompting her family to move in with relatives in Japan. Undaunted, Yona continued chasing and soon drew the attention of Hope’s Peak Academy.

Who said the Edo period was over? Well, history books did, and yes, it is true, but some of its traditions still linger. Kenjutsu was the swordsmanship used by the samurai in that era, and now its purpose has been redefined through the years. There is very few people who would be interested in learning the techniques of kenjutsu (in fact, the trend nowadays is kendo); Akatsuki Yosuke has taken up the sword since the age of six. His family has never given up the tradition of wielding a sword, no matter the gender or the age, which allowed Yosuke to be trained by some of the best teachers there could be.

His particular ease in handling a katana, and his ability to learn faster than most of his ancestors has allowed him to be a notable sword master at such a young age in the school of nitoryuu and iaijutsu. Some could even say he has inspired himself a lot on the swordsmanship of Musashi Miyamoto.

* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Tobio Shinohara from Kaze.]]


In modern Japan, the rise of mass produced ball-jointed dolls has come to overshadow the traditional doll making style of years past, but one young man’s work has brought a keen eye to look back upon the past quite fondly with renewed interest. Hyouri Himeno has opened the dusty old attic of the art-doll world and set Ningyou back in it’s rightful place. Ningyou - the umbrella term for a number of traditional doll styles most popular during the Edo Period - has been a craft favored by the Himeno family for generations. Any hinamatsuri is not complete without at least one display from the Himeno Atelier, and they are happy to provide! Though Hyouri himself focusses more on Ichimatsu, or huggable play dolls, and his more recent and celebrated work with Iki Ningyou. Choosing mainly to work with wood, his dolls look just as smooth and soft as ones made of bisque or porcelain. However, there is a strict no touch policy at all Hyouri’s exhibitions. Art galleries around the country report that he has extensive lists of specific care instructions for his work as well. Meanwhile, Hyouri himself is a rather quiet figure, not often obliging for interviews, being curt and somewhat apprehensive discussing his work. One thing is for certain though - and that’s Hyouri's love and care for his dolls; especially ‘Kana-chan’.

* [[CreepyDollGirl Creepy Doll Guy]]: Less creepy and more quiet and shy.

With the hour of midnight growing close, the screech of high voices and the flutter of leathery wings resounds through the air like the echo of church bells. Fear not, however; for many, the arrival of bats may bring about apprehension and anxiety, but for adolescent chiropterologist, Hinatea Kudo, the sound spells out opportunity. This young adventurer earned her claim to fame by daring to go further than anyone else into the caves surrounding her mountain home, the Kudo Animal Conservatory, located in Nokogiriyama, and discovering a true treasure. After successfully managing to not only observe it but contribute greatly into creating a stable scientific profile for it, Hinatea Kudo became a known name in the scientific community for discovering a previously unknown species of bat, which now carries on her legacy as part of the genus Vespertilliondae, family Murinae, Latin scientific name of Murina kudo. This discovery cannoned her into a place of recognition in the world-wide zoological community and on to the radar of Hope’s Peak Academy, and her face onto the covers of many well-reputed scientific journals.

Technically, there's very little known about the little cleaning girl called Haino Kaori, unsurprising given her mundane profession. She's quite reserved and quiet, only rising to any sort of prominence when she was brought in to assist with the cleaning of a recently-destroyed wing of Hope’s Peak. Despite being only one of several cleaners hired, she quickly completed large sections of work that had been estimated to take weeks to clear and prepare. Her obvious talent caught the eye of the school administration, and when she came of age she found an invitation to Hope's Peak waiting in her mailbox.

Zoombi Malware has been heralded across countless blogs you surely haven’t heard of for his artistic ability, able to transform seemingly innocuous relics of the near-past to nostalgia-inducing trips down recent-memory lane. Invoking emotions through art is one thing, but keeping a cohesive, solid style that manages to remain both trendy and underground is another, and Zoombi treads that line carefully and masterfully, proclaiming himself to be something of a “new-age virtuoso” in the art of vaporwave. Seemingly coming out of nowhere (that is, to the vast majority of people) to accept his title and a Hope’s Peak invitation, Zoombi arrives with his vigor only strengthened. [[spoiler: He's actually the SHSL Alien Investigator, who integrated himself into the vaporwave community due to the large number of 'aliens and alien sympathisers' there. He's also revealed to be [[Characters/DoubtAcademyWhite Naoto Ueyama's brother, and enrolled in Hope's Peak in order to find him.]]
