* Despite her [[AloofBigBrother reaction whenever her family is mentioned]], Hal's description in the epilouge of ''A World that isn't Fantasy (backside)'' implies that Hoojiro is desperate to find her missing younger siblings. And that even if Hal decided not to go to Mugenri, Hoojiro will go by herself.
--->'''Hal''': ''"(...Even you should have known. I was the one going along with you. I have to go, since you'll go by yourself even if I don't. Honestly..... What a difficult person. While I thought that, I sent her off as she exited the lounge car. For some reason, you could see sadness from her back. Oh, yeah, she is one of those who lost too. Desperately, diligently, with all her might. Searching, for new clues. Thinking, of the truth at the end of the line. Wishing, for the answers to the unknowns.)"''


* Saragimaru's backstory is tragic enough, especially when paired with their theme song. They were born from {{Orochi}}'s corpse, along with seven siblings (Yaorochi included), but as centuries passes, most of them died, leaving only the two of them. Saragimaru wants to bond with their only remaining sibling, who is too obsessed with the legendary Tasouken sword to notice or care about them. During a fight, Yaorochi attacked them with the Tasouken, and given the sword ability to sever relations, it ended up severing their relationship. Yaorochi left to find a way to restore the Tasouken and Saragimaru looked after them for years and even requested Sukune to make a clay sword similar to the Tasouken in order to make their sibling happy. By the end of EMS, they know that Yaorochi will never recognize or love them, but as long as they could protect them, they are happy.

* Mitori and Iyozane's backstory. Despite the horrific things Mitori's done in the present, you can't help but feel for them when learning their past. Such as Mitori being mistreated by the royal family for being a bastard child and Iyozane's fall from RichesToRags.

* Chouki's backstory. They were raised to be Fumikado's servant since childhood and they were very close. When they working together on resurrecting the True Emperor (a.k.a Taira no Masakado), Chouki sacrificed their life in order to help Fumikado into controlling the twig of the Tairas. However, it was a SenselessSacrifice (being dead, Chouki couldn't control the twig) and Fumikado decided to dismiss Chouki, having sacrificed too much for their sake. Unfortunately, Chouki didn't see it that way and believed that Fumikado abandoned them, thus becoming an evil spirit determined to enact revenge on their former master.
** Fumikado and Chouki do reconcile in at the ending of the Haze Castle route. Even though Chouki provoked the incident in order to lure and kill Fumikado, the ending reveals that in the end Fumikado defeated them because Chouki didn't have the heart to kill Fumikado and still cares about their master.
