Horuda hiding her face.

Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Horuda is Fragile. If she sees a corpse, she will run away from the school and call the police. If she witnesses a murder, she will start begging Ayano to spare her life in exchange for her silence. She cannot participate in physical fights against murderers. If Ayano has her phone aimed at her face, she will hide it.

If her reputation is lowered to the point that she is being bullied, Ayano can deceive her into thinking that a chosen student has been spreading rumors about her, which will convince her into committing a murder-suicide with the person she is convinced ruined her reputation.



"A shy and timid girl. \ Seems to be incapable of standing up for herself. \ For some reason, she gives me the impression that she could snap and become violent if pushed too far."


According to her student profile, Horuda is shy, timid, and is incapable of standing up for herself.
