  • Medium Awareness: They're aware that they're fictional, and attempts to show the students this.
  • My Rules Are Not Your Rules: Has stated that the rules for the students don't apply to them, and they have to follow someone else's orders. This is true given that Scilla has killed some of the students yet doesn't get punished for it.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Nagase has tried to shoot Scilla, Yukan and Caolán tried to fight them, Kristina tried to straight up murder Scilla. Even if Scilla gets destroyed, they just spawn back and deal a Curb-Stomp Battle to whomever hurt them.

  • Butt-Monkey: Has suffered so much at the hands of Scilla.
  • Put on a Bus: Disappears after her first appearance in chapter 1.


Skeleton Mascot

    Current Students 

Caolán MacRory

The Ultimate Live Action Roleplayer. He is 18 years old.
  • Adorkable: Is a fan of Lord of the Rings and is considered to be cute. He also doesn't understand innuendos, as demonstrated when he asks Nagase what his comments mean.
  • All-Loving Hero: Cares for every member of the cast, including Ezekiel.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: If he snaps, he snaps HARD. Hearing that Susumu was injured by Scilla caused Caolán to fly into a rage to attack Scilla, freaking out the other students.
  • The Cutie: He's very cute and innocent. When he swears, you know shit is going down.
  • Demonic Possession: Suffers this in chapter 1 when a demon named Izra possessed him. However, Caolán's demon merely flirted with Ezekiel and tried to kiss the guitarist, then started talking with Kal.
  • Handicapped Badass: Walks with a limp, but that doesn't mean he won't fight for his friends.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Is surprised that Susumu returns his affections in chapter 2.
  • The Heart: The Heart of the Student council. Doesn't hate anyone and makes sure that everyone gets together.
  • Horrifying the Horror: After being convinced that Loki was enacting a roleplay early in chapter 3 (Loki was merely venting their frustrations, though it was structured like a roleplay), Caolán decides to roleplay with Scilla. Scilla goes along with it... But the texts horrify Rory and make him go offline.
  • Nerds Are Innocent: He doesn't even know how to function in a relationship.
  • Oh, Crap!: The students themselves freak out when Caolán finally snaps in chapter 3 (because Scilla injured Susumu), shocked that one of the kindest students could snap.

Deirdre Williams

A Reserve Course Student. She is 14 years old. In chapter 2 it's revealed that she's actually the Ultimate Cult Leader.
  • Break the Cutie: After discovering Hisashi's corpse in chapter 3, Deirdre can no longer hold back her emotions and starts to cry, utterly breaking down over losing one of her friends.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has quite the snarky responses to almost everything. Most of Deirdre's comments are snarky responses to the previous conversation.
  • Disappointed in You: Gives Loki this expression when they mention the idea of letting Altair possess them so that the latter can speak.
  • Emotionless Girl: At the beginning, she didn't show any emotions. However, this is becoming subverted as the story goes on.
  • Evil Albino: Played With. Deirdre was raised to be the Ultimate Cult Leader due to her appearance.
  • Friendless Background: Implied. She rarely brings up anyone in her past, besides her girlfriend in chapter 1 and Nikolai in chapter 2.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Immediately freaks out when she knocks out Tetsuya in chapter 2.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has a spirit and white hair.
  • No Social Skills: Deirdre has a hard time interacting with the other students, and in many situations she moves away from the conversation.
  • Not So Different: To Susumu. Based on what Deirdre has mentioned, she is the last chance to follow in her parent's footsteps, just like Susumu. That being said, Susumu wasn't raised to be a cult leader.
  • Overly Long Scream: When Ezekiel eats a rat in front of her, she screams so long and hard that characters in the dump were affected by the scream.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Kristina's Red Oni. Deirdre is quiet and unsure how to interact with others while Kristina is outgoing and likes to talk with everyone. Kristina officially considers Deirdre to be like her little sister.
  • Taken for Granite: Gets turned to stone in chapter 3 during the demon attack. However, this was in Rory's body while his own body was unharmed. She thankfully gets better.
  • Teens Are Short: She's the second youngest character at 14 and happens to be the shortest of the cast. Interestingly enough, Roark (the youngest character) is taller than her.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Whacks Tetsuya hard enough with a stick to knock him out when they were suffering from the Heebie Jeebies motive.
  • You Leave Him Alone!: After all three of them receive the Heebie Jeebies motive, Deirdre shouts this at Tetsuya when he starts attacking Hisashi before whacking the former with a stick and knocking him out.

Demetrio Castello

He is the Ultimate Mobster, a talent he shares with King (they went to different Academies). He is 20 years old. Demetrio joins the Killing Game in chapter 2.
  • Affably Evil: Despite assisting in saving Deirdre's life in chapter 2, Demetrio comes up with several plans to kill the other students if necessary in chapter 3.
  • Badass Biker: The only person who can make a Hello Kitty bike look intimidating.
  • The Big Guy: After Sou and Kenway's deaths, Demetrio is one of, if not the most physically imposing and powerful members of the cast.
  • Combat Medic: Has extensive knowledge on both how to beat people's asses and save people's asses.
  • Disappointed in You: Every time King speaks over the broadcast, Demetrio ends up more and more disappointed in the previous Ultimate Mobster.
  • The Don: Demetrio is the Ultimate Mobster and his actions imply that he has plenty of power in his organization.
  • Godzilla Threshold: If push comes to shove, he has a plan of action in case he decides to off any other member of the cast.
  • Horrifying the Horror: Tetsu's threat to turn him into a Cow did not sit well with him.
  • Italians Talk with Hands: Averted. Despite being Italian, he very rarely makes hand gestures.
  • Lack of Empathy: Reacts with overwhelming indifference to both Hisashi and Takaika's deaths, as well as Loki's subsequent breakdown.
  • Last-Name Basis: Demands that the rest of the cast refer to him as Castello.
  • Making a Spectacle of Yourself: Often wears crude, pink heart-shaped sunglasses.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When Demetrio takes his sunglasses off, his eyes are a deep, almost glowing red.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Tetsu's Red Oni. Demetrio is the Stoic Gangster grounded in reality, and Tetsu is the eccentric Mad Scientist who dabbles in fantasy (Tetsu showed up via an incantation, Demetrio drove in). Demetrio doesn't trust Tetsu at all while Tetsu might view Demetrio as a friend.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Seems to be building up to this, as he joins the party late and is keeping a notebook with ways to kill everyone. He hid the notebook in the woods so that Caolán can't find it.
  • There Was a Door: In chapter 3, instead of leaving Tetsuya and Yukan to speak in private by leaving through a door, he instead elects to jump out of a window, due to it being more convenient to him.
  • The Stoic: Rarely emotes, if at all. Nobody has seen him smile yet.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Quite fond of taking a break from his business, putting on a Hawaiian t-shirt and drinking wine.

Emiko Kasai

The Ultimate Rhythm Gamer. She is 16 years old.
  • All-Loving Hero: She cares for all of the cast and doesn't have anything bad to say about them... But when it's the murderers...
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Emiko managed to save everyone in chapter 3 from voting wrong because she saw a pattern in the evidence that exposed the killer. That being said she doesn't take this revelation well.
  • Break the Cutie: Constantly suffers from this because she's trapped here. Sou's death and Anna's execution nearly broke the poor girl. Chapter 3 ups the ante by killing two of her friends - Hisashi and Takaika, and she can barely hold herself together when talking to Rory.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: In chapter 4 right before the motive was dropped, Emiko experiences a flashback that implies that something in her backstory isn't pleasant, as she did SOMETHING terrible.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Well her hair does have highlights, but she's one of the nicest students.
  • Heroic BSoD: She has a major breakdown when she found out that Tetsu used her body to kill two of her friends. She ended up crying and isolating herself.
  • Gamer Chick: Emiko is the Ultimate Rhythm Gamer and can be seen playing video games in the arcade frequently.
  • Genki Girl: A very cheerful girl. Most of the time.
  • Multicolored Hair: Has blonde hair with pink highlights.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Takaika's Blue Oni. Emiko is a cheery young girl who attempts to befriend the generally stoic Takaika, and the two of them are frequently seen hanging around each other.
  • Teens Are Short: Emiko is 16 years old and happens to be rather short.

Kristina Menendez

The Ultimate Lo-Fi Artist. She is 18 years old. In Chapter 3 it's revealed that she's actually the Ultimate Oracle
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Kristina is one of the nicest students in the cast, keeping an eye on Deirdre and helping out whenever she can. However she punches Anna in the second trial after discovering that Anna killed Kenway.
  • Blessed with Suck: Sure she can see the future, but that means she can't do anything about it and has to see her friends die.
  • Break the Cutie: Chapter 2 just broke this poor girl. First, the love of her life is killed, and then she finds out why she was killed.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: In chapter 3 after swapping bodies with Loki, she runs off to take their knife collection. She then promptly uses them for a meme, much to the Forensic Nurse's exasperation.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Kristina seems to be The Ditz and doesn't take anything seriously. In truth, she's actually the Ultimate Oracle.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Hinted at by Loki during the third chapter due to the flashbacks, before Loki mentions in chapter 3 that she saw her friend die in front of her and that she might have seen visions of all those who died in Spirithand.
  • Driven to Suicide: In Chapter 3, after stealing one of Loki's knives, she contemplates using it to reunite with Kenway before realizing she still had people to protect.
  • Genki Girl: Was a happy go lucky girl who tried to befriend everyone. Becomes subverted after chapter 2.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Occasionally speaks Greek. This hints that she's actually the Ultimate Oracle
  • Her Boyfriend's Jacket: Gets a jacket from Kenway.
  • Heroic BSoD: When she finds Kenway's body, she goes into shock and starts to cry before isolating herself from everyone in chapter 2.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Has this dynamic with Kenway, with Kenway being a whooping 8'0 and Kristina being 5'3.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: To Kenway. They merely said goodnight to each other, and Kenway went to investigate something before tragically getting killed.
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: The puppy to Kenway's pitbull. She's cheery, not physically intimidating, and stands at 5'3. Kenway is 8'0, ready to fight at a moment's notice, and rather stoic. When they are together, she brings out Kenway's softer side.
  • Secret Keeper: To Deirdre. Kristina is one of the few characters that knows that Deirdre is the Ultimate Cult Leader.
  • Tragic Keepsake: After Kenway's death, Yukan gives her Kenway's earrings, and Kristina has been wearing them ever since
  • Unstoppable Rage: Twice.
    • The first was against Scilla after discovering that Kenway died. Resulted in a Curb-Stomp Battle however because Scilla is invincible.
    • The second was during the second trial after discovering that Alice had killed Kenway because she was jealous of him. She just about killed Alice right then and there, and Loki could barely restrain her. And Loki was able to drag Kenway with one arm!
  • Walking Spoiler: Hard to talk about her without revealing that she took Kenway's death super hard and that she's the Ultimate Oracle. Subverted to an extent; she can see the future, and it's heavily implied that she knows all the deaths that will occur in the game, but something is preventing her from actually saying anything about it.

Loki Þórsson

The Ultimate Forensic Nurse. They are 19 years old. Loki is genderfluid and uses he/him. she/her, and they/them pronouns, but this wiki will refer to them with they/them pronouns.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Loki has been able to figure out most of the characters secrets, though this sometimes bites them in the process. After figuring out Rory's, Rory found out and it led to the two being in a Prisoner's Dilemma.
  • Badass in Distress:
    • Briefly held hostage by Susumu's demon in chapter one.
    • Occurs again in chapter two after fighting with Tetsuya.
    • Gets trapped by a monster in chapter 3.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: During the Giant Kings event in chapter 2, Loki attempts to get the Giant Kings to look for the real King. However, due to their poor choice of words, they accidentally caused the Kings to attack each other.
  • Belief Makes You Stupid: Defied. Is one of the smartest and religious members of the cast. Granted, Loki has pagan beliefs but still.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: One of the nicest members of the cast, but god forbid you get on their bad side.
  • Bi the Way: Currently dating Nagase Eijiro and previously dated Skuld before she died.
  • Break the Badass: As the Killing Game goes on, multiple events start weighing on Loki's mind and cause their depression to worsen. Each chapter's deaths start to weigh on their mind, but Kenway and Hisashi's deaths weigh the most on their mind because those two were their friends, and Loki loved Hisashi.
  • Broken Ace: Loki is one of the smartest characters whose talent comes in handy during the trials, and happens to be one of the strongest characters. However, deep down Loki has doubts that they are really making a difference,
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Made out with Nagase in chapter 3 before the body swap motive, and got whacked in the face with a Capri Sun Box. Also anytime they're with Nagase they get interrupted.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Has this in spades. Loki tries to help everyone in the cast with any issue they have, with mixed results (although in some cases where they fail, there were other factors involved.) Somewhat deconstructed as Loki acknowledges that they can't save everyone, but it stays weighs on their mind.
  • Combat Medic: Is the only licensed nurse in the group, but is also one of the most badass characters in the cast
  • Cradle of Loneliness: When they find Hisashi's body in chapter 3, they break down and start cradling Hisashi's body, refusing to let go of the other.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Has quite the troubled past.
    • Their mother was a serial killer, and attempted to kill them and their brothers when the three of them found out.
    • Their father died trying to save them.
    • Has been shot at 17 times over the course of 4 years. Is unfazed by this however.
    • Has been stabbed at least 15 times as well.
    • Also fell in love with Skuld Nohr, the Ultimate Police Officer, before she was killed. Loki attempted to save her, but she died in their arms.
  • Declaration of Protection: Promises to protect Nagase while talking to their confessional.
  • Demonic Possession: Suffers this in chapter 1, being possessed by a demon named Thrym. Luckily, all Loki suffered was minor vertigo, as Thrym didn't pose a threat to the students.
  • The Determinator: Loki is constantly trying to find a way to save everyone (including Altair) and find the Urushido survivors. Lampshaded by Hisashi in chapter 3 as Loki was still trying to find a way out then.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: Implied. Loki mentions that they have a scar on their stomach from their mother trying to kill them as a child. They also mention that their body has lots of scars.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Frequently speaks in Icelandic, though they have said things in Romanian.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A sweet person with blond hair.
  • Handicapped Badass: Has a hearing aid. Also frequently breaks bones or gets wounded, but that doesn't stop them from doing things like dragging Kenway to the dorms when he was incapacitated or punching people while holding someone else.
  • Heroic BSoD: Loki has had a few within the rp unfortunately
    • After beating the crap out of Tetsuya in chapter 2, Loki ran off and shut down, horrified by their actions
    • Kenway's death in chapter 2 made them freeze, shocked that one of their friends had fallen.
    • Hisashi's death in chapter 3 has hit Loki the worst, with Loki being unable to process their friend's death.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Wonders if they even deserve their talent if people keep suffering. This is brought up in chapter 3 when they were talking to Hisashi.
  • Holding Your Shoulder Means Injury: Briefly in chapter one after accidentally getting punched by Nagase.
  • Hospital Hottie: Is a very attractive Forensic Nurse.
  • Hypocrite: Loki tends to take care of the others, and lectures them for neglecting their health... Despite being the type of person to neglect their own health in response. Ezekiel calls them out on this in chapter 3 by pointing out that they would be worried about Kristina if she didn't sleep when Loki pulls an all-nighter.
  • Knife Nut: Has a large collection of knives, surprisingly. They keep pulling knives out of nowhere, especially in chapter 2 and 3.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Surprised that Nagase returns their affections in chapter 1. Especially given their animosity in chapter 1.
  • Irony: Is named after the Norse Trickster, but is a nice person. Loki hasn't played tricks on anyone as well.
  • The Matchmaker: Helped pair Kenway with Kristina by giving Kenway advice over the Spookspad.
  • Noodle Incident: Several. Loki casually tells Susumu and Yukan they've been shot at 17 times within three years and later mentions being stabbed 15 times... Before the events of Spirithand. Susumu and Yukan are understandably concerned by this.
  • Oh My Gods!: Frequently says "Gods above" and other Norse related euphemisms.
  • Opposites Attract: They're a forensic nurse dating a mafia accountant. Basically Loki is breaking the law.
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: The puppy to Nagase's pitbull. Nagase will not hesitate to go after anyone that harms Loki, and Loki is notably shorter than Nagase. While Loki can defend themselves, it's not a good idea to hurt them lest you want Nagase to kill you.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Initially when Loki perceived Rory as a threat... Because the other tried to boss them around in the infirmary. Becomes subverted when Loki keeps an eye on Rory.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Rory's Blue Oni. Loki is more emotional and focused on helping others while Rory is stoic and implies that he only helps others for his personal gains. They go from being tense acquaintances to enemies over the course of the roleplay
  • Secret Keeper: Surprisingly, for two of the characters.
    • To Deirdre. Loki was one of two people to find out that she's the Cult Leader... And that she's not evil
    • Loki is aware that Kristina is the Ultimate Oracle, and refuses to tell anyone else without her knowing. Kristina is aware that Loki knows and is glad that they keep diverting attention away from her.
  • The Sleepless: Paired with their Workaholic tendencies. Loki once went one month with 6 hours of sleep.
  • Shipper on Deck: Shipped Caolán and Susumu after Caolán wondered if he crushed on the latter.
  • Technical Pacifist: Barring Sasuke (which was an accident and Sasuke was a ghost/illusion), Loki hasn't killed anyone and swears by the Hippocratic Oath. That being said they won't hesitate to harm anyone they deem a threat.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has red eyes.
  • Theme Naming: Nearly everyone in Loki's family is named after a Norse Being or Norse Hero except for their mother. Interestingly enough, this makes their mother really stand out, especially since she's a serial killer with a talent that isn't a service job.
  • Tragic Keepsake: The red hair clips in their hair was originally Skuld's before she died. Loki has also been making keepsakes of most of the deceased as well to remember them and not let their deaths be in vain.
    • In chapter 3, Loki acquires two new tragic keepsakes to remember Hisashi - one of his jackets and his eye, although Loki had little say over keeping the eye and frequently mentions this.
  • Transgender: Loki is genderfluid, using he/him, she/her, and they/them pronouns.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Loki had to suffer Kenway's death, Hisashi's death, and discovering that Rory had killed their girlfriend Skuld within two chapters, which caused Loki to break down severely. Ezekiel's death in chapter 4 did not help matters.
  • Trigger Happy: When they find out that Tetsu murdered Hisashi and Takaika to reunite with someone he turned into a cow, Loki stole Nagase's gun and shot Tetsu with it in revenge.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: On two occasions:
    • In chapter one, they get into an argument with Scilla and dare the flower to grow legs. Scilla does so (along with fishnets and high heels) and promptly terrorizes the cast with their new legs.
    • In chapter 3, they find a book on spells that repel demons. This unfortunately summons the demons that attack everyone.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: On the receiving end multiple times throughout the story due to making reckless decisions that cause them to get injured.
  • Workaholic: Admits to being one prior to coming to Spirithand. Is also seen working a lot throughout the events of Spirithand, but this is Justified due to them being the only nurse and having to patch up injuries just about every three days.
  • You Leave Him Alone!: Shouts this in chapter 1 while trying to save Nagase from Roark's demon.

☆ Milk ☆

The Ultimate Social Media Model. She is 19 years old.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: When Susumu was having a breakdown and Caolán lied about it, Milk pretty much figured out that Caolán was lying that they were talking about Lord of the Rings.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Milk may be rather eccentric, but when Ezekiel insulted Susumu in chapter 1, she did not take it well. Word of God confirms that if it wasn't for the trial, Milk would have beaten the crap out of Ezekiel.
  • Demonic Possession: Suffers this in chapter 1. She gets possessed by the demon on the previous killing game.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Goes by Milk.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Despite being one of the shorter members of the cast, she easily lifts up Kenway, the biggest member of the cast.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has pale red eyes
  • Teens Are Short: She's on the older end of the teen spectrum, but Milk is rather short.


The Ultimate Gunpla Modeler. She is 19 years old.

Nagase Eijiro

The Ultimate Accountant. He is 20 years old.
  • Affably Evil: Despite wanting to save the students in the beginning, he didn't hesitate to threaten Loki when they figured out his mafia ties.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses his leg to Roark's demon, but grew it back.
  • Ax-Crazy: After getting possessed in chapter 1 he went on a rampage and wounded a few other people before getting exorcised by Ezekiel.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Nagase is has been able to do do many things, and is stated to wear a very nice suit that rarely gets damaged despite the shenanigans he gets in.
    • Subverted in one case - when Roark's demon ate his leg. His suit got destroyed.
  • Badass in Distress: Gets held hostage by Roark's demon and nearly dies in chapter 1.
  • Bi the Way: Nagase starts the story as King's boyfriend (something he tried to hide due to his past). Later on, Nagase ends up dating Loki, who is genderfluid.
  • Break the Badass: Despite being one of the most badass characters, he's clearly not taking being separated from King well.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Made out with Loki in chapter 3 before the body swap motive, and got whacked in the face with a Capri Sun Box. Also anytime he's with Loki they get interrupted.
  • *Crack!* "Oh, My Back!": Has chronic back pain. This causes him to have days where he can't move, like the chapter 1 investigation.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied to have this. He told Rory in chapter 4 that he was forced to work for the mafia.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Delivers most snarks in a deadpan tone.
  • Demonic Possession: Suffers this in chapter 1. He goes on a rampage with no control over his actions, nearly killing Emiko by shooting her and locking some people in the fridge.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite working for the mafia, Nagase is nowhere near as evil as Rory, given that Rory has no hesitance in using others as a shield.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Has these due to rarely sleeping.
  • Eye Scream: Loses one of his eyes to Roark's demon.
  • Gayngster: Is bisexual and works as an accountant for the mafia.
  • Guns Are Worthless: Attempts to shoot Scilla when they first appear, but their bullets are ineffective.
  • Harem Seeker: Tells Caolán that he intends to look for multiple lovers in addition to wanting to marry King.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite insulting Hisashi, he was correct that accusing someone of committing murder and faking their chronic pain will never end will for the accuser.
  • The Leader: Is the leader of the Student Council in chapter 1 that attempt to prevent the murders.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Is seen constantly drinking coffee.
  • Office Romance: With King, since they both work in the Mafia
  • One Head Taller: He's significantly taller than Loki.
  • Opposites Attract: He's a mafia member dating a Forensic Nurse - someone on the side of the law.
  • Prisoner's Dilemma: He knows that Rory is a serial killer, but can't reveal this without people finding out he's mafia

Rory Smith

The Ultimate Negotiator. He is 19 years old.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Rory will not hesitate to sacrifice friends, resources, or destroy entire countries to achieve his goals, if a war is what it takes, then a war it is.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to act nice but he really isn't.
  • Butt-Monkey: Is on the receiving end starting in chapter 3. Things start to go wrong for him.
  • False Friend: He doesn't view anyone as a friend.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Barring Tetsuya, everyone else either tolerates him or outright hates him. Then Tetsuya finds out he's a serial killer...
  • Glasgow Grin: Has a partial one due to an incident in his childhood.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Seemingly played straight, but majorly subverted when he shows his true colors.
  • Irony: He insists on finding Takaika and Hisashi's murderer(s) since it would be dangerous to let them walk around... Despite being a serial killer himself.
  • Jerkass: Is a huge jerk, especially to Nagase and Loki.
  • Kick the Dog: Frequently goes after Loki during their breakdowns and finds ways to erode their sanity. It's gotten to the point that Loki has started to believe that Rory is right.
  • One Steve Limit: Kind of. His first name is similar to Caolán's last name, Mac Rory.
  • Red Herring: Lampshades this when talking to Loki and Nagase in chapter 3. Even though he is a depraved serial killer, he assures them that he isn't actually the one who trapped everyone here.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Loki's Red Oni. Rory is calm and collected, while Loki is prone to being emotional.
  • The Sociopath: The only time Rory shows kindness is to garner support and blind devotion, any favor given by Rory has strings attached, waiting to tangle the unsuspecting victim in its web of lies. He has no emotional attachments, true righteous character traits, or interest in the emotional, physical, or mental wellbeing of other people. He is a cold, calculated, sadistic torturer who's primary goal is to seize power and influence.
  • Visionary Villain: Rory wants to control the world without outright ruling it, a mastermind from the shadows. He has an extravagant, untouchable sense of self and sees himself as the kind of liars and vastly superior to other people, especially emotional people.
  • Walking Spoiler: Hard to talk about him when he's a depraved person and a serial killer.

Susumu Goto

The Ultimate Business Guru. He is 18 years old.

Tetsuya Hironori

“I-I was so scared - so angry - so just - I-I - I wanted it all to stop-! E-Everything... I-I wanted to escape - e-even going to jail seemed so much better than staying there and dying at the hands of my own family...!”
The Ultimate Confectioner. He is 19 years old.
  • Adorkable: Tetsuya is rather shy and sweet, with a dash of clumsiness that shows up from time to time.
  • Alpha Bitch: Due to the Heebie Jeebies motive, Tetsuya ends up insulting the others for a variety of reasons. His most frequent target was Ezekiel due to how the guitarist treated him.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: On two occasions has shown a ruthless side. In chapter 1 he punched Ezekiel, and in chapter 2 he cracked Loki's nose and ribs the second time they came to blows.
  • Break the Cutie: His issues with depression, the various injuries he sustains throughout the game and the mental stress of it all eventually leads to this. Luckily, after attempting to kill himself following the motive in Chapter 3, this becomes more of a Heal the Cutie as Tetsuya actively tries to better himself.
    • This trope comes back into play during chapter 4, where Rory is revealed to be a serial killer.
  • Cain and Abel: Shares this dynamic with his twin brother Sora. Tetsuya told Loki and Rory that he tried to kill his brother because his brother was the favorite, with this info being confirmed by Word of St. Paul.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has brown hair and brown eyes. The only character to have this trait interestingly enough.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Tetsuya suffers from the definition of a bad backstory. Being the victim of physically and mentally abusive, neglectful rich parents and being the twin brother of an affluent gifted child, it's no wonder where all of his issues stem from.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments, especially on the Spookspad. See the Quotes section for examples.

  • Driven to Suicide: Tetsuya has attempted suicide three times, once before the game and twice during. Luckily, however, this seems to be improving.
  • Extreme Doormat: He has barely any confidence in himself, nor any self-esteem. As such, he's very prone to just letting people walk all over him.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Tetsuya during the Heebie Jeebies motive. While afflicted with the disease, Tetsuya's personality was switched to that of a sadistic bully, who took pleasure in hurting others (and, consequently, provoking them into hurting him). Luckily, the disease wears off once Kenway's death takes place.
  • Facial Horror: Suffers this thanks to Roark's demon with his face getting scratched up.

  • Tragic Keepsake: Yukan ends up giving him Ezekiel's necklace, since the two of them were best friends

  • The Unfavorite: Mentions to Loki and Rory during the Heebie Jeebies that he was the Unfavorite child of his family.
  • Workaholic: Played with. Is frequently seen making confections until he passes out.

Yukan Tsubasa

  • Gratuitous Russian: Frequently adds Russian terms to her speech, such as screaming "BRATVA!" when Demetrio first appeared.

  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Becomes this in chapter 2 after killing the beloved Kenway for a selfish reason.

  • Meaningful Name: Ovsta means sheep. She's a wolf in sheep’s clothing after all.
  • Not So Different: To Tetsuya. Both of them are the Unfavorite younger twin in their family. While Tetsuya ran away from home, Alice took her sister's identity instead.

  • Taking You with Me: Attempts this with Scilla before her execution. Unfortunately, Scilla has a double.

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Has a few examples, some of them are due to his cynical nature:

    • After Tetsuya fell out of a tree, Ezekiel admits that he doesn't want Tetsuya to die and reveals that he's had similar thoughts to Tetsuya

  • Crazy-Prepared: Hisashi apparently got retina scans of six of the students in the event that he died, and set his eye to record the event of his death if he ended up dying before tying it to the retina scans.

  • Cyborg: Claims to be 37% machine, but has artificial limbs and biological limbs

  • Deadpan Snarker: Has snarky responses for just about everything. His internal thoughts call Scilla "undertale vibes"

  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Really wants to have friends but doesn't know how to go about it. He mentions this to himself a few times.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Zig zagged. He feels isolated, but it's not because of his intelligence. It's due to how he handles others.

  • Lord Error-Prone: In Nagase's eyes, given that Hisashi accused him of being the chapter 1 killer early on.
