     The Instructors 

The Main Character

The player character. A young man tasked with leading a group of seven delinquent girls through Hell's Reformation Program. Unfortunately, he is suffering from amnesia.

  • Amnesiac Hero: Managed to get amnesia before meeting with the Delinquents. He eventually regains a few details about his past.
  • The Heart: Despite all the in-fighting from the girls, his kindness and faith in them is what keeps them together. Indeed, the only thing they initially can agree on is keeping him safe.
  • Hypocritical Humor: During one of Shinoa's wishes, the Instructor gets rather embarrassed when she asks him to help her make new underwear. She scolds him for the hypocrisy, saying that he's already seen everyone's underwear during their motivation.
  • I Choose to Stay: He is given the choice by Enri when she asks if he and the girls can stay with in her Hell Spire to help rebuild and reform the system. Upon choosing this option, Enri gives him and the girls administrative rights and the nine of them work together to bring about a better Hell.
  • My Greatest Failure: He and his sister, who used to be very close, were not on speaking terms after an argument caused them to drift apart. His sister later dies and he regrets not being there to help her. He went on to become a Program Instructor to help girls through the Reformation Program in order to make up for not being there for his sister. His time with the Delinquents allows this memory to return to him.
  • Non-Action Guy: He has no powers or combat skills, unlike the girls. He is only capable of giving orders.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite the dangers of Hell and the missteps they suffer, he has complete faith in all the girls, even the Convict, and will fight to ensure that they all safely reform and return home. Despite some skepticism, he is ultimately proven right in the end.
  • Taking the Bullet: More so than the previous protagonist. He takes hits for the girls no less than three times despite possessing no way to defend himself.

Toko

Voiced by: Eimi Okada

The player character's superior. She directs him via his radio, trying to assist him as much as she can while trying to deal with the rebelling Convicts.

  • Reasonable Authority Figure: As the main character's senior Program Instructor, she cares a lot about your well-being and tries to check in on you and the girls as much as she can. A stark contrast to the relationship between the first game's main character and Miu.
  • The Voice: She is only heard through the main character's radio for much of the game.
  • Walking Spoiler: See the Spoiler Folder.

     The Girls 

Shinoa Akizuki

Voiced by: Kana Akutsu

A well-mannered girl who wishes to help the Instructor reform the rest of the girls.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She appears to be a well-mannered girl who wants nothing more than to help the Instructor lead the rest of the girls to reformation in a civil manner. However, she thinks of herself more highly than others and believes that only her ideas are the best. She is later called out on it and then develops into someone willing to consider others' opinions.
  • Control Freak: It's her true nature and the root of her sin. She believes that only her ideas truly matter and tries to get others to follow, hiding it behind an air of civility. She gets rather offended when the others don't appreciate her leadership. Her past reveals that she dealt with delinquents in her school by scheming of ways to shut them down, thinking the teachers would be too useless to stop them, and while she didn't actually destroy her best friend's boyfriend's life rather than accept she was allowed to live her own life before she died, she was definitely thinking about it.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: She believes she is better than everyone else and gets offended when people don't listen to her or call her out on controlling behavior. However, when she finds herself alone with the severely injured Instructor and can't heal him, she realizes that they were right and she was just trying to cover her inability to do anything but lead.
  • Hypocrite:
    • When Toko first introduces Motivation to the Program Instructor, Shinoa claims that everyone will be okay with being motivated if it means reforming. If she's chosen to be motivated, however, she is clearly offended.
    • She claims to care for the others' well-being and tries to act that way, but it becomes clear that she's more concerned about everyone following her lead. It takes Yurine calling her out on it for her to realize it.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Her stats are nicely balanced and her skills allow her enough flexibility to be either an offensive fighter or a defensive tank with some status-inducing abilities for good measure.
  • Not So Different: To Lily. Both of them hold themselves in high esteem and believe that only their opinions matter. The difference is that Lily is open about it while Shinoa hides it behind her more civil demeanor.

Lily Arisugawa

Voiced by: Mitsuki Nakae

The haughty heiress of the wealthy Arisugawa family.

  • Catchphrase: "This/That is no fault of mine!"
  • Friend to All Children: She's incredibly sharp-tongued toward everyone except Kuroe and especially Mizuki, the youngest girls in their group. She admits that she's projecting her sisterly love for her little sister onto them.
  • Implausible Deniability: When she first arrives in the Hell Spire, she tells you that she wants her parents to pick her up or meet with your superior or a lawyer, completely ignoring all attempts to convince her she died and went to Hell. It takes an attack from a Convict to convince her otherwise.
  • Impoverished Patrician: Her family fortunes had declined a bit ahead of her death. Her classmates' and teachers' callous attitude about it didn't help.
  • Never My Fault: She blames everyone but herself when things go bad for her. It's the root of her sin, as she blames her father for the loss of her family's wealth. Heck, it's practically her Catchphrase.
  • Ojou: Coming from a wealthy family, she possesses an upper-class Princess-like demeanor.
  • Stone Wall: Her stats favor a more defensive approach and M-skills help compliment that with a variety of defense-boosting support skills and healing and revive spells.
  • Tsundere: Despite acting high and mighty, she possesses a sweet side that the Instructor often points out. Naturally, she blushes and tries to make excuses for it.

Kuroe Ise

Voiced by: Ai Kakuma

A shy girl who talks through her stuffed animal, Baron.

  • Despair Event Horizon:
    • In the past, her failing a major exam was the last straw for her after a series of plummeting grades, losing the respect of others, and watching her parents split apart, leading her to commit suicide.
    • In the present, when she fails a trial that was designed to fail and several of the girls start accusing her of intentionally sabotaging them, her self-esteem plummets and she eventually runs away from the group. By the time Sui finds her with a Convict, she's willing to let herself be killed by it and gets upset when Sui saves her. Thankfully, Sui snaps her out of it.
  • Driven to Suicide: In her past, she killed herself after she failed a major exam, ending up in the Hell Spire as a result. Her failure during one of the trials (which was rigged to fail) and the escalating in-fighting between the other girls causes her to nearly consider it again until Sui convinces her otherwise.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: She's amazing when it comes to memorization, which was what led her to ace all of her exams early in her school life. However, memorization can only take a student so far, so as school became more difficult, she found her grades dropping farther and farther over time.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother never wanted Kuroe, only becoming interested in her when she was consistently earning perfect scores. Once Kuroe's grades start dropping, she becomes bitter and blames her daughter's falling grades on her father. By the time Kuroe commits suicide, they divorced and left her. Her "I Want to be With You" ending reveals that they did come back for her after she returned from Hell and have become a happier family ever since.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's very shy and soft-spoken, possessing very low-self esteem, and cowers when things go bad.
  • Squishy Wizard: Her spells and high magic attacks can nuke almost anything she encounters. Just be careful when enemies hit her.

Mizuki Kurushima

Voiced by: Ayumi Tsuji

An energetic young girl who has a hard time trusting others.

  • Establishing Character Moment: Her first reaction to meeting the Instructor is to become very suspicious of him. When he fails to correctly say her full name, she immediately declares him untrustworthy and refuses to follow him. It's the first sign of her having some severe trust issues.
  • Genki Girl: Without her trust issues, she's the most excitable character of the group.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Has the highest attack and speed in the game, able to get priority against even the fastest enemies and hit them hard. She, unfortunately, is also quite the Fragile Speedster, as all that comes at the cost of her defensive stats.
  • Parental Abandonment: The reason she's living with her Grandma is because her parents never wanted her. They never came back into her life, despite her hoping that they would one day, and she has had trust issues ever since.
  • The Runaway: She was thinking about it when she died.

Yurine Kazato

Voiced by: Sakura Nakamura

A ditzy young woman who immediately takes a liking to the Instructor.

  • Attention Whore: Yurine likes being the center of attention enough to lie about things. It's implied that the sin she would've committed if she hadn't died was lying about being groped on the subway, ruining an innocent man's life just to keep being the center of attention.
  • Consummate Liar: She lies very confidently, even when her dishonesty is very obvious. It's at the root of her sin.
  • Cool Big Sis: The Instructor tells her that despite her ditziness, she is capable of being a sister figure to the rest of the girls if she tries. She proves him right when she sticks up for Kuroe after the other girls accuse her of intentionally failing one of the trials and becomes a pillar of support for them for much of the game.
  • Gamer Chick: She likes RPGs and video games, and often describes combat in those terms.
  • Mighty Glacier: She possess one of the highest attack stats in the game and hits her enemies really hard, especially with S-skills equipped. She's also the slowest character in the game, being the only character incapable of hitting a triple digit speed stat at level 50.
  • Sloth: Lying about the reasons her life wasn't going perfectly worked just as well as actually trying to live better, and got her the attention she wanted either way.

Tsukasa Yaegashi

Voiced by: Seiko Yoshida

A young woman who loves teasing others and playing by her own rules.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her boobs are practically hanging from her hoodie, and the Instructor even has to remind her to pull it up so that they aren't fully exposed. That does't change with her Knight outfit and adds Underboobs to the package.
  • Bi the Way: She admits quite early on that she finds both women and men attractive.
  • The Cynic: She is really critical of the Instructor's trust in all the girls and makes it very clear that she only joined because they have the same objective.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: As revealed in her past, she was always rather critical of her idealistic mother who made it a point to help everyone she meets, but mostly out of concern for her well-being. When her mother is left in critical condition trying to save a child and the child's parent actually didn't even give a crap about the child or the person who saved her, any idealism Tsukasa might have had was gone.
  • Drugs Are Bad: The item that breaks Tsukasa out of her Heroic BSoD is a bag containing an unknown drug. She had been planning on taking it to get over her problems and live guilt-free. Naturally, her time with the party gives her the strength to reject it despite being urged to by her shadow.
  • Gyaru Girl: Never commented on, but between her tan skin, slangy accent, and obvious enjoyment of fashion, Tsukasa resembles a ganguro.
  • Hidden Depths: While she is a tough delinquent-like girl, she's also the only one with working medical knowledge. One of her wishes shows her sitting down and reading a few medical books and her ending has her studying to become a doctor. Also, those lollipops she always has stuffed in her mouth? She made them.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: A mage variant. Her S and M skill trees give her access to some really good offensive and support spells and is surprisingly durable and fast, allowing her to take more hits than Kuroe while having more priority than Sui. Her offensive stats aren't as good as either of them, but are still decent enough to keep up with them and the extra debuff and status effects that come with most of her spells make up for it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She riles up the party at every chance she gets and keeps claiming she's in it for herself, but when one of the characters are in danger, she immediately drops the act and does everything in her power to help, becoming a Jerkass once again when things cool down. At one point, Sui points out to her how contradictory her actions are.
  • Red Herring: She is not together with the other Delinquents initially, doesn't care about reforming or leaving for the real world, and likes to taunt the other girls, making it easy to believe she's the Convict. Indeed, she's accused of being the Convict a few times and doesn't necessarily confirm or deny it. Naturally, she isn't a Convict at all.
  • Tsundere: More subdued compared to Lily. She's critical of everyone and is fond of riling them up, but the few times she helps others and it's pointed out, usually in regards to the Instructor, she blushes, pouts, and murmurs embarrassingly.

Sui Shiihara

Voiced by: Hiromi Igarashi

A soft-spoken young girl who shows little emotion.

  • A-Cup Angst: She's very critical of her figure. While this is partially due to her being stuck in a hospital for a long time, she confesses that the buxom Yurine has her ideal body-type.
  • Brutal Honesty: She is never one to hold back what she thinks of others, especially if they are wasting time arguing instead of working together and making progress towards the spire.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Her sin. When a bully decides to throw away a coin purse her father gave to her after finally coming out of the hospital, she considers it the last straw and makes a warning that he will pay for it. She has the bully and his entire family's personal information posted online and gets him in a scuffle that forces him to move away and ends with his family's business going under.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: When the failures and the in-fighting get the better of Kuroe and considers suicide, Sui slaps and is able to talk her down.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: While this is true of all the girls, it goes double for her because she's the Convict. Luckily, her overcoming her past and attaining her Knight form convinces Enri that she has fully reformed and can return to the real world like the others.
  • Only Sane Man: She's one of the more rational girls in the group, always thinking logically about their situation and how to proceed rather than getting into petty squabbles.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Short light purple hair, red eyes, shows little emotion, and mentions that she had been hospitalized for awhile. Like most expies, she slowly opens up to the Instructor and the other girls.
  • Squishy Wizard: She has the second highest magic stat and some powerful spells, made all the more potent when her OPR skills proc another character to attack with her. Unfortunately, her defensive stats are almost as low as Kuroe's.
  • The Stoic: Rarely ever raises her voice.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Her cold logic and brutal honesty make her come off as uncaring, but despite her words, she places a lot of trust in the Instructor and is able to compliment and stand up for some of the girls from time to time. She gradually opens up further as time goes on.

     Spoiler Characters 

Maya

Voiced by: Eimi Okada

Another Program Instructor the party meets in the Hell Spire. She sends them to Hell upon finding out that one of the girls may be a Convict.

  • Batman Gambit:
    • First, she, as Toko, acted as though she and other Program Instructors were being held captive and aided the party in their Reformation. This allows the party to reform and achieve their Knight forms, making them powerful enough to break through the defenses of the System Manager and grant her access to the Manager's Floor.
    • Second, she anticipated that Enri would use up much of her power trying to protect the Hell Spire and the Delinquents because the next System Manager was designed to have an opposite personality to the previous one, who was cold and uncaring. As she expected, Enri, despite appearing confident, could barely keep up with Maya.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: What ultimately confirms Sui's suspicions of Maya being a Convict is her mentioning the main character's amnesia. They've only met once and the only characters who know that he's suffering from amnesia are the girls and Toko, so there's no reason Maya should know about it.
  • Motive Decay: She only wanted to reform the Reformation Program so that it could extend mercy to those who failed it rather than damning them to Hell for eternity. However, due to being corrupted by the many souls she consumed, by the time you meet up with her in the Girl's Garden, she decides that destroying the System Manager altogether and taking its place is a far better idea. Then, upon realizing that her actions will destroy the Hell Spire, she ends up taking a liking to the idea and decides Hell in its entirety should vanish.
  • The Reveal: She is Toko and was manipulating the party into disabling the System Manager's defenses.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: All she really wanted was for the Reformation Program to be more merciful towards those who fail the program but still have the drive and potential to eventually succeed. The previous System Manager's uncaring nature, her dismissal, and watching her girls sacrifice their souls to allow her to survive Hell, however, took their toll on her sanity.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: She was originally a Delinquent, but her time in the Reformation Program had inspired her to become a Program Instructor upon reforming and had done an admirable job of it. However, not all of her Delinquents were able to properly reform and were cast into Hell despite her protests to grant them a little mercy and allow them to attempt it again. She tried to convince the System Manager and other Instructors while trying to keep her Delinquents-turned-Convicts safe in Hell, but this only made the System Manager suspicious of her, leading her to be stripped of her position and cast into Hell as well. Eventually, the dangers of Hell proved too much for Maya and her girls, so her girls decided that their best option was to give up their souls to Maya so that she would have the strength to survive. Maya naturally protested, but the girls felt that they would be better off keeping the one person who wanted to give them mercy a chance to live than for all of them to perish. Maya hasn't been the same ever since, becoming the manipulative, cold-hearted, and insane woman the party meets.

Enri

Voiced by: Marika Kouno

A mysterious young girl the party meets in Hell. She claims she loves humans because she loves watching them suffer.

  • Benevolent A.I.: While initially coming off as anything but benevolent, she's ultimately on the side of the main cast and does everything in her power to help them.
  • Big Good: While not apparent early on, once she reveals herself as the System Manager, she's the one directing the main cast and aiding them as much as possible.
  • Deus Est Machina: Enri is essentially an AI with godlike abilities.
  • God Was My Co Pilot: She's the newly born System Manager of the Hell Spire.
  • Humans Are Special: Ultimately, what she believes in. She enjoys watching humans fight and destroy each other, but finds just as much, if not more, joy in watching humans overcome their differences and becoming better people.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Behind her child-like cruelty is a girl who was just born into a world that she is immediately tasked with defending from a rather manipulative Convict and has little concept on how humans act beyond what little the previous System Manager left for her. Her taunts and tests are her way of trying to figure out what it means to be human and whether or not they are worth her time. Thankfully, the girls exceed her expectations and she is far more cooperative and sympathetic when they meet again.
  • Troll: She enjoys taunting and riling up the party throughout their journey through Hell and regularly says that she loves watching humans squirm. She eases up after the group goes through some major Character Development and overcomes her obstacles.
