    Main Characters 

Bracelet 1 - Eve/ Mitsuki Kagami

A 16 year old schoolgirl, and the holder of Bracelet 1. In truth, she's the heir to the Kagami family, both a major technology manufacturing group and quite possibly one of the strongest mafia groups in the world. She also has control of the 'mirror' talent, allowing her to perfectly analyse and mimic the personality of someone else or create a perfect 'contrasting' personality for them. Also, she may or may not be a clone.

  • Took a Level in Badass: Last Words Timeline. After Grey died.
  • Moe: C'mon, she's adorable.
  • Badass Adorable: Eve's familial background. The girl grew up in a mafia family!
  • CorruptTheCutie: See Badass Adorable above. The cause? Her entire involvement with Akira, the boy in the photo.
  • Disappeared Dad: When asked about her family, Eve mentions she loved her mother very much. She didn't breathe a word of her father.
  • Dying Declaration of Love: Ow.
  • Split Personality: Empress.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: After being almost overcome by her evil personality, she asks Grey to kill her. This is the result.
  • Ironic Echo: "Call it intuition," as she takes Grey's robot eye after his death.
  • Meaningful Name: Her bracelet number's 1, so her alias is 'Eve', as in 'the first woman'.
    • Her real family name, 'Kagami,' is written with the character for 'mirror,' a reference to her talent.
    • Her real given name, 'Mitsuki,' is written with the characters for 'beautiful moon.' This might be another reference to her talent, as the moon does not shine with its own light. This is mentioned in her dying thoughts in the Last Words timeline.
    Voice: i'LL Be thE SUN, yoU Are the MOON; withOUT mY Light, WHAT ARE YOU?
    Eve: ...nothing.
  • Sharing a Body: With Grey during Chapters 5-7.
  • Split Personality: After Grey's death, her personality and mannerisms fluctuate between Grey's, Tsuin's, her own, and Avalon's.
    • A bit later, she turns out to have an evil split personality!
  • OOC is Serious Business: After Grey's death she becomes much less passive.
  • Wham Line: She has a lot.
    To Grey, after he tells her he trusts her:...you'd probably be better off placing your trust elsewhere.
    In her head: hE knOWs tOo mUcH!
  • Madness Mantra / Broken Record: nothingnothingnothingnothingnothingnothingnothingnothingnothing
  • Hope Spot: Killed off just after taking a level in badass. Nobody saw that coming.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Is she a cute, shy young girl? Or the cthulhu baby of Tsuin/Avalon/Grey's best qualities?
    • Turns out it's both, and this is her talent.
  • Superpower Lottery: She holds the 'mirror' talent, which lets her instantly psychoanalyze anyone and effectively copy their personality, or create a 'perfect match' for them.
    • It's hinted her real talent is to 'break barriers'. For example, breaking out of the Void Room.
  • Not So Different: Ari and Eve actually turn out to share a lot of issues. There is a big difference with them though, Eve wants her mindset to get better. Ari is willing to let his degrade even more.
    • Also, with Grey, in a plot twist that neither of their authors predicted. They're both artificially created.

Bracelet 2 - Tsuin

An young adult woman who aims to become a doctor, and holder of Bracelet 2.

  • Asshole Victim: Last Words Timeline. Almost killed by Ari and saved by Aegis... then proceeds get angry at him. Tell your boyfriend not to murder my charge next time.
    • Though she made herself extremely easy to hate to every male of the cast she was choked out, beaten down, and screamed at by a mentally unbalanced Roaring Rampage of Revenge for something she hadn't done.
  • Badass Bookworm: Yeah. Seriously. She's a talented doctor and psychologist that can fight decently if need be.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She really doesn't want Eve and Grey to talk to each other.
  • Iron Lady: Most of the male characters don't take her seriously at first. This changes.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Complete with clock cufflinks!
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: While she is shown to be a capable doctor by patching up Grey after VGC attacked, she doesn't exactly adhere to the Hippocratic Oath.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: She's very sensitive to loud noise. This doesn't go well when Grey is screaming his lungs out due to being penalized.
    • Mentioned briefly when fighting Ari in the Last Words Timeline.
  • Ice Queen
  • Improvised Weapon: Last Words Timeline. Uses Eve's bracelet to attack Ari.
  • Improbable Age: Tsuin is studying to be a psychiatrist and has no trouble treating injuries. She's 19.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Tsuin' is the phonetic Japanese pronounciation of 'twin'. This reflects her bracelet number being 2, along with her acting completely differently towards particular people. Also, she's literally a twin.
  • Insufferable Genius: She's quite rude to all the male characters and insists on being safe, putting all the other players in danger. Combines with Disproportionate Retribution - she began hating Grey simply because he was angry at Strict and Cheery GM after being kidnapped.
    • Adding on to the Disproportionate Retribution she hates Ari as soon as he calls her 'little'.
    • Freudian Excuse: She's had to put up with a lot of shit from boys in the past, which is why she hates them on sight. Hinted to be more than this - she mentioned something about once having a boyfriend at one point, than cut herself off, potentially implying that something happened.
  • Acting Your Intellectual Age: She's never played a video game and looks down on those who indulge in fun things.
  • Non-Idle Rich: Her family is very wealthy, but she's studying to become a doctor anyway.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue (well, black) to Grey's red (well, grey.)
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Lying appears to trigger her Split Personality.
  • Out-of-Character Alert: When she snaps.
  • Base-Breaking Character: In-Universe. In universe, half the players hate her, whereas the other half are good friends with her.
  • Superpower Lottery: It has not been confirmed, but she is expected to have the 'intellect' talent.
  • Split Personality: Holy shit.
  • The Corrupter: To Eve. Maybe.
  • Never Live It Down: Post-"Last Words" route, Tsuin is often (jokingly) portrayed as a mass-murderer despite it only happening in one route.

Bracelet 3 - Aegis

A 21 year old man who comes from a rich family and is easily characterised by his red visor. Holds Bracelet 3.

  • Accidental Murder: A huge Kick the Dog moment in the "Last Words" route, he accidentally kills Ari, when all he meant to do was knock him out.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: It may not be meaningful, but what it is is fucking awesome!
  • Blind Without 'Em: Similar to his inspiration, he's blind without his visor.
  • Clear My Name: Once he is accused of murdering Ari in the second timeline. Suspicion is cast upon him. Subverted, as the players are still suspicious of him afterwards.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Out of all the players, he probably has the weakest grasp on reality.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite all of his stupidity, he isn't that bad of a puzzle solver.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the Last Words route, after realizing that he killed Ari, guilt from the past and the present topples upon him until he can't take it.
  • Good Parents: Claims to have awesome parents during a free-time event. Further dialog suggests it was more a case of Parental Neglect.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Doesn't show it that often but, there are several hints that Aegis despises who he is, and this is confirmed by his final thoughts.
  • Manchild: Frequently gets caught up/angered by things he shouldn't be concerned about as an adult.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: Once he's nearly falsely pinned of murdering Ari in Timeline 2, he pretends to lose it, as part of a gambit that works to a certain extent.
  • Expy: Basically a walking one to Togami from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Godot from Ace Attorney. Minus most of the assholish traits, thankfully.
  • Shout-Out: One of the main participants in the regular Phoenix Wright punfests.
  • Keet: Easily the most energetic cast member. He looked even perkier at sixteen.
  • The Nicknamer: On occasion. 'Ari-Head' for Ari, 'Atly' for Atlas, and 'Tsuey' for Tsuin.
  • Red Herring: Let's see, violent, loud, and frequently gets on the other players shit-list. In the Last Words route, the only victim he claims is due to an accident. Unless you count his suicide shortly after.
  • Significant Anagram: 'Voles Geisa Riis', which he mutters to himself multiple times throughout the later half of the "Last Words" route. Unscrambled, it says 'Aegis loves Iris'.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: A party boy with no direction in his life
  • Use Your Head: Last Words Timeline. Or more accurately, use your visor to knock out Ari.
    • Don't forget the murder part of it.

Bracelet 4 - Atlas

A girl of an unknown age who comes from a military family and rarely talks. Holds Bracelet 4.

Bracelet 5 - Heron

A young girl dressed up in Japanese mori fashion. Holds Bracelet 5.

  • Flanderization: Her shyness falls under this. In the first few chapters when she was introduced, she was relatively chatty. In later ones, she barely talks to anyone except Tsuin.

Bracelet 6 - Grey/ Janus/Sonne Leuchte

An 18 year old boy and main character of the written adaptation. Holds Bracelet 6 and is easily spotted by his all-grey clothes and hoodie. In truth, he's the result of the Sonne Project (and to a lesser extent, its sister, the Janus Project). He's also got a robot eye.

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: To Eve.
  • Canon Sue: YMMV. He's one of the main characters in both the roleplay and novelisation, he has a robotic eye that gives him a perfect memory, is able to revive after death, he can absorb the talents of other players, and may be able to revive other players. On the other hand, nearly all his powers are reliant on other players or a Death-Activated Superpower.
  • Blessed with Suck: His true talent is the 'chimera' talent, a result of Project Sonne. It lets him absorb the consciousness of other people, effectively turning him into a Mind Hive. He can't control it.
  • Death Seeker: Last Words Timeline. Appears to be this during Chapter 3. It works.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Determinator: Holy shit. He has his legs 'broken', is strangled for two minutes without losing consciousness, and willingly sacrifices himself on the first forced-betrayal round in Timeline 1.
  • Shout-Out:
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: He pulls this early in the Last Words timeline to unite the players with his death. Still up in the air on whether it worked or not.
    • Considering Ari nearly murdered Tsuin and Aegis ended up killing Ari, it is safe to say it didn't.
    • That wasn't his only goal. See the Xanatos Gambit entry below.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Does this after Eve dies. Complete with a Cool Sword, a Steampunk-esque Badass Longcoat, and the ability to use Eve's talent.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: In case you hadn't already realised it...
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red - well, grey - to Tsuin's blue.
  • The Nicknamer: "Ib" for Eve, "Shoe In/Soon" for Tsuin, "Aegislash" for Aegis, "BioShock" for Atlas, "Bird" for Heron, "Margaret" for Asteria, and Arin for Ari.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Just like most of the characters.
  • Catchphrase / Phrase Catcher: "Call it intuition."
  • Informed Flaw: Apparently, he has an inferiority complex due to the fact that his robot eye effectively overshadows any talents he might have. This is barely, if ever, mentioned in canon.
  • Ironic Echo: Repeatedly mentions his situation 'feeling like a B-grade X movie' as the game goes on. Overlaps with Lampshade Hanging.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Zig-zagged. He's quite smart, but his assumptions have got him penalized by Strict GM. Twice.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Done twice. The first time, he turns out to be a clone. The second time, he turns out (maybe) to be a clone of Akira, Eve's abusive ex-boyfriend!
  • Wham Line: One that makes his entire character arc make sense. "I think... I think I'm a clone."
  • Xanatos Gambit: Aims to take the hit on all possible forced-betrayal rounds, as he can easily be revived once they find another 'Grey-clone'. If he doesn't die? Hey, he'll still be living!
  • Superpower Lottery: He's got a robot eye that can memorise everything, can be revived after death, and has psychic powers. Sounds good, right? It's not. See his Blessed with Suck entry.
  • Neural Implanting: Wired into his eye, which allows him to memorise anything he sees. Also, allows him to download his entire memory and personality into a 'memory card' after death.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope / Break the Cutie: Willingly destroyed Asteria's black Psyche-Lock knowing full well it could and would quite possibly break her mentally. It does. He's not 'evil', as such, but this was a huge dick move for him.
  • Power Copying: Appears to be how his talent works.
    • It's less 'power copying', more 'absorbing consciousness', but it has that effect as well.
  • Sharing a Body: With Eve in chapters 5-7, thanks to his 'chimera' talent.
  • Walking Spoiler: Just like a lot of characters in this game.
  • Never Live It Down: It seems Grey will always be hyped as the player who does a lot of awesome shit but dies to early to do anything

Bracelet 7 - Asteria

A mysterious girl who wears a large amount of jewellery and is skilled in tarot reading. Holds Bracelet 7.

Bracelet 8 - Break Stratos/ ???

Bracelet 9 - Avalon/Avery Liu

A boy of unknown age who holds Bracelet 9, the last bracelet. Confirmed by Word of God to be transgender.

    Others 

Cheery GM

One of the managers of the Nonary Game, and strangely upbeat. Which tends to get on everyone's nerves.

Strict GM

The second manager of the Nonary Game. Is a lot less upbeat than Cheery GM.

Violent Grey Clone / Grey's Dad

A mysterious character who attacked Grey when he was investigating the washroom. Apparently, he looks identical to Grey.

In reality, he's Grey's father, inhabiting a body of one of the Grey-clones. He infiltrated the Nonary Games in an attempt to kill Grey and stop him from remembering his origins.

Akira, AKA The Boy in the Photo/Grey?

A teenage boy who is seen in a photo Eve found while revisiting the Earth Room. It turns out that Akira was once Eve's boyfriend, and the heir to Kagami Corp, their sister business and front for the mafia group. At some point, he turned abusive towards Eve, forcing her to kill people, using her as a sex slave, and the like.

The Couch

A mysterious, possibly diabolical figure in the Nonary Game. Stalks the players everywhere, silently.

Zero

The main antagonist of the game, just as in the source material. And just as usual, one of them is the mastermind.

Bracelet 6 - Thanatos / Todd Leuchte / Grey Leuchte

An enigmatic young boy.

Bracelet 1 - Empress / Mitsuki Kagami

An enigmatic, proper woman.
