Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (Japanese)
One of the three Heroines in the series. She is also one of the members of the Norn ship.
- All of the Other Reindeer: She was isolated for her powers.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: She is an odd duck, mostly thanks to having been alone for so long and from such a young age that she doesn't have much frame of reference for how people normally behave. Before she remembers her name, Sorata mentally dubs her "Ms. Weirdo."
- Curtains Match the Window: Pink hair and pink eyes.
- Hair Decorations: An old-fashioned hairpin decorates her hair.
- Loss of Identity: She was ostracised so completely from other people because of her powers that she's forgotten what she was even named. "Koharu" is a name given to her by the same traveler who told her to expect the Norn, and she's even forgotten that by the time the ship arrives.
- Nice Girl: Easily one of the nicest characters in the series.
- Only One Name: She doesn't even have a real name, as Koharu was how the traveller who invited her to the Norn called her.
- Playing with Fire: She is able to control flames. Out of all of her peers, her ability is extremely powerful - on Senri's route, it's noted that unlike every other esper, she's not fatigued at all by using her power.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Her hair is pink and she's easily the kindest female character in the game.
Voiced by: Ayahi Takagaki (Japanese)
The oldest of the three heroines. She is also one of the members of the Norn ship.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She has long black hair and is calm and mature.
- Barrier Maiden: Her power is to create barriers of any shape or size that she can imagine. Her barriers range from big enough to almost completely enclose the Norn itself, to small enough to destroy a gun from the inside, and are impenetrable for as long as her energy and willpower hold out.
- Childhood Friend Romance: If she pursues Sakuya.
- Hime Cut: Given that she is an Ojou, she wears her hair this way.
- Ojou: She was born into a noble family and was raised by those around her with great care. Because of this, she can be high-handed.
- Terrible Artist: She is bad at drawing, as shown in Natsuhiko's route. This causes people to get confused about her drawing, with the only exception is Sakuya.
- Tsundere: Type A.
Voiced by: Asami Seto (Japanese)
The youngest of the three heroines. She is a very talented ninja and a member of the Norn ship.

- The Stoic: Seemingly at first, unless you choose to play as her.

- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Shown in all of her playable routes. She's usually reserved and emotionless, but she has a kind side to her as well.
- ¡Three Amigos!: Together with Heishi and Itsuki.
