“Huh?…what’s going on here? Who are all of you?”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arata_souma.png
Steve Urkel's Long Lost Brother

There’s been a boom in popularity of the pixelated style of video games from the 1980’s, and with it pixel artistry became a recognized art form, with one of the heavy hitters of this movement being Arata Souma. Arata makes square by square art for all kinds of mediums, be it for a poster or even retro game design. His modest art style even fits his attitude towards others. Fellow artists have described Arata as very positive and supportive, always giving others good advice and motivation to push forward whenever it’s needed. Happy-Go-Lucky and always willing to help, Arata has made his way to the top of the pixel empire, and can’t wait to meet you there as well.

No Relation To Spongebob Squarepants

Having been around oceans all xer life, and with a captain for a father and a marine biologist for a mother, it should be no surprise that Callisto Tan would also grow up to work with sea creatures. Xe began breeding jellyfish when xe was a child, and at seventeen xe began working at an aquarium where xe takes care of the jellyfish exhibit. The exhibit has made the aquarium one of the biggest attractions in Singapore, even though the caretaker left to come to school in Japan.

Flora

Super High School Level Gardener

“<Who are you?! Where am I?!>”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flora_6.png
Poison Ivy's Lesser Known Sidekick

Though she’s by no means famous, it takes little searching to find out about Flora. The caretaker of a rather extravagant garden on the roof of a skyscraper in downtown Tokyo that houses Morigami Pesticide, inc., she’s shrouded in secrecy. Though little is known about her other than her work with plants, weirdly enough Morigami’s spokesperson has issued public statements denying the corporation has any ties to the girl, stating that ‘she just sort of came there one day and wouldn’t leave’. A year ago the Morigami building was destroyed in an explosion, and Flora vanished, but she’s definitely the same Flora now appearing on the Hope’s Peak Academy class roster.

Their Rube Goldberg Machines are known to be easily reusable to help with daily mundane tasks–a rare commodity in the Rube Goldberg community, as many machines often use lines and lines of dominoes that are difficult to set up–leaving their audience wishing they had something like it in their home.

Kakure Fukasetsu

Super High School Level Reality TV Show Host

“Holy crap!!! Everyone here is a sexy beast!!! Is this heaven?! Am I being rewarded by being rewarded with gods and goddesses of beauty?!”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kakure_fukusatsu.png
If It's Cute, Obtain Booty

Known for popularizing radio entertainment with the sudden and unexpected rise of the Fukasetsu Entertainment Broadcast radio station, Kakure Fukasetsu has ascended to radio personality status due to his charming and playful personality as well as the extremely entertaining manner he runs his radio talk show. His radio talk show is divided into different subsections, all of which he personally plans and participates in and brings to life with his vocal range and endearing personality while Live on Air with local guests!

In addition to making for an entertainment host which draws in audience with his seemingly-natural charm, with the rise and fall of the Fukasetsu Entertainment Broadcast station, after signing with the well-known Sanyo Broadcasting Company, Kakure’s recognition increased even further. With the addition of guests, some of which soon varied from local to national celebrities, interviews, heavy fan-involvement and a large following in social media, curiosity piqued the interest of non-radio listeners and the cycle repeated until he became one of the main reasons Japanese listeners tuned in to the radio everyday he is broadcasting.

Kris Tenshi

Super High School Level Street Magician

“Oh, world, I know you hate me and all, but why won’t you just let me sleep?”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kris_tenshi.png
Your Mind Makes Him Real

As his name would suggest, Kris Tenshi prides himself as being on par if not better than the famed illusionist Criss Angel at the art of street magic - and unlike most others, this young man can certainly back it up! Having spent the better part of two years touring Japan with his camera crew and parlor tricks, the Super High School Level Street Magician is a household name these days - it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t caught a glimpse of this blue-haired pretty boy, with his extravagant performances that often come as unprepared as the crowd to see him - until he’s standing in the middle of it and levitating them all! There’s certainly nothing this boy wonder can’t or won’t do - other than reveal his true name, of course! You’re gonna have to catch him off-guard to do that…an impossible feat?

Played by: Sandy!


  • The Ace: Skilled in magic, and the many tricks of the trade, including lock-picking and misdirection. He's cauterized a leg wound with nothing but nitrocellulose, benzene, a lighter and his bare hand. He appears to have enough medical knowledge to actually make it work.
  • The Atoner: A unique case, in that while he doesn't regret the crime, he clearly regrets the outcome, and strives to help the others not fall into the same fate he has suffered.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: While Kris is generally affable and gets along with most, he's not someone you want to cross lightly.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Despite having been dead for an unspecified period of time, he remains protective of the memory of his younger sister, and extends that same fondness to some of his classmates.
  • Bishōnen
  • Broken Bird: Despite how Kris carries himself, it's clear that dying has taken quite a toll on his mental health.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Blue.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Both his original hair-colour and eye-colour were brown, and he has dyed the former the same colour as his contact lenses - dark blue.
  • Dark and Troubled Past
  • Deadpan Snarker: Apparently, his death has had no effect on his dry wit.
  • Declaration of Protection: Makes this for Huang and Mari.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has one under his left eye in the shape of a cross. Subverted in that it was self-inflicted as part of his performing persona and does not have any real purpose other than to look cool.
  • Hidden Depths: It's made apparent that Kris isn't as unfeeling and off-handed about his status as a murderer. He simply does his best not to remind himself of it whenever possible.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed. Kris is less of a jerk and more abrasive at times, but he generally means well.
  • Nerves of Steel: It's hard to find something that actually gives Kris a flat-out shocked reaction. The most he will do is raise an eyebrow.
  • Nice Guy: On his better days.
  • No-Sell: Considers the first motive to be this, at first. Quickly rescinds it upon seeing its effects firsthand.
  • Parody Name: Acknowledged in-character and by his creator: Kris Tenshi is a deliberate Affectionate Parody and Shout-Out to famous magician Criss Angel, and it's specifically noted that it happens to be an alias that Kris chose for himself. His real name is unknown at the moment.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Perpetual Frowner: A side effect of his execution.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality
  • Sympathetic Murderer: As revealed, Kris' murder was entirely in self-defense, and as such, he did not possess the same murderous intent the rest of his classmates may have had.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: At 5'8", downplayed on the 'Tall' bit but fits everything else to a tee.
  • These Hands Have Killed: While he acknowledges that yes, he is a killer, the fact that it was in self-defense makes it less harsh on his psyche.
  • Unwanted Revival: He bemoans the fact that he was brought back to life to begin with, as now he must live with all the regrets he has had since dying. Downplayed in that, while he may complain about it, ultimately he desires to live in order to protect those of his classmates that he has come to trust (e.g. Mari and Huang), he wants to reunite with what's left of his family.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Downplayed - it's dyed.

Mari Tatsuko

Super High School Level Cake Decorator

“I’m… This isn’t… Definitely not Hell or Heaven… Purgatory? Limbo? No… That can’t be right either.”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mari_tatsuko.png
This Cake Ain't A Lie

Despite her young age, Mari Tatsuko has already made an impact in the culinary world, especially when it comes to baking and decorating cakes. Currently working at Sutāraitokēki (Starlight Cakes in English), she is still astounding people with her uniquely creative cakes. Her cakes have a special quality that she feels cake decorators are missing. She likes to try and incorporate something personal from the requester(s).

Her first success was made in France at Sucrecoeur Bonbons (Sugarheart Sweets in English), a sweet shop and bakery that was already famous over France. It was shut down 1 year ago due to legal issues. Mari’s success there 3 years ago helped bring more fame. Her achievement had involved baking a cake for the famous 15 year old at the time genius artist Lucas Marc Durant, who had only accepted a cake from that shop. Mari’s cake had been beautiful, and included a canvas, and in the end, Lucas had painted with edible paint on the canvas made of cake before it was revealed. Her prior successes to returning to Japan and then her further successes in Japan secured her an invitation to Hope’s Peak.

Played by: Hope!


  • The Atoner: Her current actions seem to be attempting to repent.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: As the secret motive is revealed, Mari's family situation is also revealed to be pretty messed up.
  • Broken Bird: Since losing her leg, her mental health has also taken a heavy toll, leaving her with little sleep and a lack of appetite.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Not only does she have a sad backstory yet to be revealed, she then proceeds to attack Monten-cchi after the Chapter One execution, thus breaking a rule. She loses a leg as a result.
  • Dark and Troubled Past
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Seems someone in the prior game has soften her, and now she seems more open to people.
  • Dramatic Sit-Down: After gaining access to the computer files, Mari is the first to see her own. She ends up sitting at the fountain, struggling to keep herself standing after reading how cold the file is.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook
  • Gone Horribly Right: She seems to wish she could have tried things another way, rather than succeeding the way she did.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Or she did.

  • Bratty Half-Pint: Despite being just as old as the rest of her classmates, her short height and childish demeanor could certainly fool people.
  • Creepy Child: Even if she does look sweet enough, her morbid fascination with blood, guts and gore reveals just how downright creepy she really is.
  • Crocodile Tears: While she does genuinely cry from time to time, more often than not Mika's sobbing is just an attempt to get attention from others.

Super High School Level Cold Case Detective

“What...the fuck...”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rinkaku.png
I Don't Get This Either

“Rinkaku” is the name you will find under the title of SHSL Cold Case Detective. There isn’t much known about Rinkaku himself, only his date of birth, the location where he worked before coming to Hope’s Peak, and where he currently lives [the Academy itself]. Born on June 29th, Rinkaku is 19 years of age, and is currently employed under the Ikebukuro Police Department as head of their Cold Case Investigations. Anyone who meets him can say he’s good at his job, but not good at socializing. People often avoid talking with Rinkaku unless they absolutely have to. Standoffish and a little cruel, Rinkaku isn’t easy to talk to.

Salem Crowley

Super High School Level Horror Novelist

“Kehahahahaha!!!! Rise and shine, rise and shine!!! What a lovely day to cheat death, wouldn’t you say? Kukukuku!!!”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salem_crowley.png
Fitting Pen Name Is Fitting

Be it the monsters in your closet or the things that go bump in the night, most everyone is afraid of something. Fear is one of humankind’s most primal emotions ‐‐ and few can exploit it as well as the one who calls themself “Salem Crowley.” A (largely self-proclaimed, but with their recent Hope’s Peak invite, perhaps the bragging is warranted?) master of all things creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky, their tales strike fear into the hearts of the many that read them, making them a favorite among horror fans and avid readers alike.

The tales of Salem Crowley are gripping, with interesting plots, fascinating characters, and truly haunting imagery. The thing their novels are most known for is how… vague the stories seem to be. While hints that a supernatural element is at work are present in the story, it’s never explicitly stated, presented in a way that makes readers question what’s really happening. With translations in numerous languages of their books, and even rumors of a film coming sometime soon, it’s no wonder how the self-titled Monarch of Macabre got recruited into Hope’s Peak’s lineup of star students. Their real name turns out to be Itsuki Suzuki, and they end up being the killer of Chapter 2.

Shinobu Kanamori

Super High School Level Welder

“M… Mom? Fukui? Where…?”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinobu_kurahara.png
Favourite Music Genre's Heavy Metal

Heir of Kanamori Metalworking, Shinobu was born into a long line of welders. Observing his parents work at a young age inspired him to pursue the craft on his own. He asked questions, looked at examples, and compiled notes so he would be able to weld properly. It took years of begging, but at the age of thirteen the boy was able to gain hands-on experience. He was proven to be a natural at the craft, fixing all sorts of structures on the fly. His stature and flexibility allowed him to weld in the most unreachable of places. The boy’s achievements soon gathered many customers to his family’s business, including Hope’s Peak Academy. Small in size yet large in heart, Shinobu overcompensates his childish appearance through hard work and determination. He's the victim of Chapter 2.

Shion Kataoka

Super High School Level Fencer

“Th’ hell am I doin’ ‘ere. And who th’ fuck’re you guys?”

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shion_kataoka.png
Sephiroth Called: Wants Hair Back

Shion Kataoka is the first and only living son of the infamous Kataoka family. Seemingly spoilt rotten from the day of his birth and always having everything handed to him on a silver platter, he’s not someone you might expect to worry about a career. And yet, for what seems to be years, he’s practised the ancient art of fencing. He’s notably quite graceful on his feet, having been trained one-on-one with a private tutor for as long as he can remember, and he’s the undefeated champion in many tournaments throughout the country.

It would be somewhat hard to imagine a world where Hope’s Peak didn’t take notice of Shion, and although he already had top-notch education taught to him in-home at the expense of his family, he fully accepted the school’s offer in hopes of furthering the Kataoka name to not just all of Japan, but the world as well!
