    Uncover the Truth 

Heroine/Main Character

A 28 year old wedding planner.

  • No Poker Face: She is noted to broadcast her emotions over her face. One character notices when her stocking was torn because he saw her looking down at her leg in worry; if pressed on how he knew, he explains and adds that she's an open book. Another sees her entering a fancy restaurant and notes that her eyes immediately go as wide as saucers. He remarks to her:
    "You look like an untouchable goddess, but every tiny expression reads on your face."
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Takoyaki. It reflects how much sloppier she is in the privacy of her home, eating junk food and letting her apartment become a mess, in contrast to her glamorous public look.
  • Trash of the Titans: Downplayed. Her apartment is messy enough to avoid inviting people in, and she cleans on short notice by shoving everything into a closet.
