    Monica Flores 


Voiced by: Hannah Grace (ENG), Kaori Nazuka (JPN)

Monica is the main heroine and a student that takes Leonard Cosgrove's course. She is out-going and has a lot of friends, but no "best friends." She suffers from mood-swings, and is easily influenced by passing trends. She and Rooney Simpson don’t get along, likely because they’re polar opposites. She comes from an impoverished background, the eldest daughter of 7 siblings. She attends college by working part-time as a janitor and as a waitress. Her dream is to fall in love with a celebrity, and she hopes to accomplish that during the cruise.

  • Alpha Bitch
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rescues Rooney in the path towards the True Ending.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Monica has shades of this when examining certain objects.
    Monica: A bucket. Great, I'm saved...
  • Gold Digger: Her main reason for coming onto the cruise is to find a wealthy husband.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Given how tight the dress seems to be around her breasts and how low it is, any amount of running should lead to a wardrobe malfunction.
  • Jerkass: Appears to be self-centered and abrasive during her debut, and is quick to tell Rooney to go away so she would get the chance to flirt with Jerome.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Becomes more approachable towards Rooney once danger takes over the cruise, going as far as to save Rooney's life from Vigo and Jerome.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Parental Abandonment: It's not said what happened to Monica's parents, just that she's raising her siblings on her own.
  • Promotion to Parent: You learn in Chapter 3 that she is the only one taking care of her six younger brothers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: If the player chooses to, Monica can make bad decisions that end up killing her, such as choosing to hide in a large washing machine.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In a sense, she’s in a better term with Rooney during Two Survivors ending. See also Jerk with a Heart of Gold and Big Damn Heroes above.

    Leonard Cosgrove 


Voiced by: Jack Merluzzi (ENG), Rikiya Koyama (JPN)

Leonard is a British-born cultural anthropologist, and is escorting the heroine(s) and her friends aboard the cruise. He’s hands-on, logical, and interested in occult phenomena from an anthropologist's point of view, but has managed to get to the bottom of and debunk several occult deceptions. In his heart of hearts, he is actually a romantic and occult fanatic. He wants nothing more than to one day encounter an honest-to-goodness supernatural phenomenon that he’s unable to demystify.


    Rooney Simpson 


Voiced by: Jenny Shima (ENG), Eriko Matsui (JPN)

Rooney is one of the other American students that takes Cosgrove's course. She’s introverted, serious to a fault, and dislikes standing out. Her grades are relatively high. She has largely lost the will to live after being possessed by suicidal ideations following an incident in her past. Her schoolmates make fun of her, calling her glum and stale, and she gets the sense that she doesn’t belong in the group.


Scissorwalker/Yolanda Boradsov

Scissorwalker is a monstrous humanoid creature brought aboard the Oceanus by a cult known as the Faithful, whom Monica and Rooney must outwit and hide from in order to survive the ordeal. She is later revealed to be Yolanda Boradsov, Vigo's daughter who was ritualistically turned into the horror she is now.

    Jerome Theruiau 


Voiced by: Jonathan Sherr (ENG), Shuntarou Mizuno (JPN)

Jerome is a gifted French conductor with a slender build and sensitive demeanor. Rooney is attracted to his introversive character and cultured background. Most recently, he’s been troubled by his unreliable memory, and joined the cruise in the hopes of getting some much needed rest.

  • Biseinen
  • Evil All Along: Starts out as a genuinely nice guy, but is eventually revealed to be a member of the Faithful.
  • Interrupted Suicide: Stops Rooney from jumping into the ocean at the beginning of her chapter.



Voiced by: Soness Stevens (ENG), Ai Shimizu (JPN)

A mysterious little girl who haunts Rooney.

    Vigo Boradsov 


Voiced by: Barry Gjerde (ENG), Hidekatsu Shibata (JPN)

  • Evil All Along
  • Parental Incest: With his daughter, Yolanda, in order to impregnate her.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Is only seen right at the tutorial stage of the game during Scenario 1 with Monica. Shows up in the True Ending as the man responsible for the creation of the Scissorwalker, and the deaths of everyone on the cruise.


    Kelly Butler 


Voiced by: Donna Burke (ENG), Takao Koizumi (JPN)

One of Monica's friends.

    Jessica Lopez 


Voiced by: Donna Burke (ENG), Asuka Itou (JPN)



Voiced by: Chris Wells (ENG), Mamoru Miyano (JPN)

A member of the ship's crew.

  • Ambiguously Evil: Innocent crewmember or part of a fanatic cult? It's impossible to say for certain.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Although he appears in the Sole Survivor ending, he is conspicuously absent from the Two Survivors ending and it's never answered whether or not he's part of the Faithful.
