Momo Tsukishima

Super High School Level Tattoo Artist

Momo Tsukishima, SHSL Tattoo Artist, is a soft-spoken girl that tends to keep to herself in most situations. She struggles to communicate with other people, and can often be found looking off into space or observing her surroundings (which can look kind of creepy, but she sincerely means no harm). She’s rather jumpy and panicky when caught off guard, as if all human life terrifies her. She is the second case victim.

Those few pictures showcase those rare times when she smiles. She is one of the third case victims

Amaya Tsukino

Super High School Level Theatrics Master

Known to the theatre world for waving her hands wildly in the air as she screams, “Stop the scene!” Amaya Tsukino-Lamont is certainly passionate about her calling as the best up and coming Theatrics Master from Japan. Her abilities as both a Director and a Stage Manager turn scripts into fantastic plays for the viewing of the general public. Not much is known about her publicly, since she prefers to stay out of the limelight. Her strange laugh is one of the most memorable things about her.
  • We Used to Be Friends - Boy, she sure felt betrayed by Masaaki after he turned out to be Act 3's murderer.
  • Peek-a-Bangs - Her bangs almost cover the right side of her face.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck! - Amaya often uses such words to express her feelings since she's not a fan of swearing.
  • Shy Finger-Twiddling - Does something similar to this. Amaya always keeps her hands busy out of nervousness.
  • Luminescent Blush - Remember the second trial when some of the students ended up stripping? And Natsumi just happened to be amongst those who took off their shirts? Amaya's face reached a tomato red level blush.
  • Reluctant Warrior - She doesn't want anyone to die or be harmed but has learned that she can do nothing to stop such things.

Cecile Murasaki

Super High School Level Sabreuse

Born in France, Cecile Murasaki entered the sabre fencing scene at a young age and quickly gained quite a reputation for being both lightning-fast and unpredictable. She’s known as L’éclair, or ‘Lightning’, for a reason, after all- despite her height, she’s ruthlessly quick, even for the already fast-paced sabre division. That, coupled with her mastery of the risky flunge move, has propelled her to the top of the cadet fencing scene not only in Europe, but all over the world. After a surprising first-place victory at the Cadet Circuit Tournament when she was 15, Cecile’s reputation was sealed, and she was almost guaranteed a spot on the French Olympic team the next year. However, she inexplicably surfaced in the Japanese fencing scene, and is rumored to have signed on with their Olympic team instead. While the reasoning behind this change is debated, one thing cannot be denied- Cecile is one of, if not the best cadet fencers in the world. She is the second case culprit

Haruka Takara

Super High School Level Historical Novelist

Born in Okinawa, then soon moving to Tokyo, Haruka always had it easy. Having her family cater to her every need was the life she lived up until Hope’s Peak, so adjusting would not be easy. She had been homeschooled, which was where her interest in history sprouted. Instead of pitying herself, she took the opportunity of always being in front of a computer and used it to research many things, soon gaining a vast amount of knowledge on history of not just Japan, but many other countries. She wanted to get this knowledge out and share it with the world, but she knew how boring history class could be, and so she found another medium to get it through. Sitting down for nearly a year, she worked on a novel called Until They Surrender, a story revolving around a young girl caught in the times of the American Revolution. It was an overnight hit, and after getting it published and out in stores, almost two-million had been made in sales. After this work as well as other many works under her name at such a young age, the academy took interest in her, and soon invited her. She accepted the invitation, packing up to attend as the Super High School Level Historical Novelist.

Kiku Hayashi

Super High School Level Extreme Sports Star

"Sport" is an activity where someone might die. Any other activity is a "game"." No quotation could define Kiku Hayashi as well as their catchphrase.

Between partaking in challenges, breaking worldwide records, and going on a mission to participate in every extreme sport, they’ve rapidly gathered attention across social media and a huge fan-following. They come off emotionally removed and standoffish towards strangers whom they deem "cowards", seeming unapproachable and unsympathetic, but, underneath their aloof attitude, they act saddened and depressed.

Mikhail Kohut

Super High School Level Architect

An extremely talented and creative individual, Mikhail has been credited with the design and construction of many impressive structures in both Ukraine, their home country, and Japan, where they now reside. Their career in architecture began when they were very young, with a secret project that they still refuse to allow into the public eye, along with the reason for their interest in this skill in the first place. Regardless, what began as a hobby of putting together model houses out of wood and glue soon evolved into what puts Mikhail in charge of the construction of the elaborate things they’ve designed. Their eye for detail and the beautiful structures they’ve created have managed to get them a well-earned spot with the elite in Hope’s Peak Academy.
