*** In one of her worse crimes without any shadow of a doubt, there's her getaway plan. It involves [[spoiler:burning the entire floor of the apartment where she lived and passing off Shouko's corpse as hers. She clearly didn't care that innocent people could have died in the fire]].
** Asahi Kobe is the older brother of Shio. Born when his mother was raped by his father, Asahi sacrifices himself to allow his mother and sister time to escape the abuse. After enduring five years of brutal torture by his father -- up to and including having his fingernails ripped off -- Asahi adjusts his goal of getting his family back together to finding his sister. Throughout the series, Asahi faces several trials such as: getting beaten to the brink of unconsciousness; narrowly avoiding being bludgeoned to death by an envious Satou; and becoming attached to -- and losing -- Shouko Hida to murder. Even when he finally reunites with Shio, he is taken aback by Shio's declaration of staying at Satou's side. Despite her death, Satou posthumously wins over Asahi with Shio disowning him in favor of keeping her happy sugar life in her heart. While weak and powerless, Asahi proves continuously how far he would go to find his sister no matter the cost.
** Shio Kobe is the younger sister of the aforementioned Asahi, as well as the self-professed "lover" of Satou Matsuzaka. After Shio and her mother escaped their abusive household, Shio was abandoned by her mother before meeting Satou. Resentful of her mother leaving her, Shio latches herself to Satou whilst suffering from an unknown condition reminiscent of PTSD. When she learns of Satou's true nature, Shio willingly chooses to be her "partner in crime" and takes her former life with stride as she protects Satou from her brother. Even in the events of Satou's demise, Shio firmly vows to keep Satou's memory alive, and even inherits some of her characteristics.
** Asahi Kobe is the older brother of Shio.
** Yuuna Kobe is the estranged mother of Asahi and Shio. When she was 16-years-old, Yuuna was [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped]] by her future [[DomesticAbuser husband]] after she had innocently bumped into him. Being forced into a marriage she didn't want, Yuuna was the subject of continuous domestic abuse by her husband's hand, and it was also heavily implied that he repeatedly violated her, being dismissive of whether she consented or not. Fearful that she would become the same monster that her husband was, Yuuna left her daughter in the streets after convincing herself that she was unfit to raise her. Returning to her abusive husband's household, she laced his sake with poison and was presumably on the run from the authorities for the murder.
