Abby- Our protagonist. She suffers from depression and anxiety due to some events in her past. Though she is much better now, Abby comes to Belmont in order to recover and hopefully forget the events prior to the story. Personality wise Abby is a rather uneasy girl and often is a bit too sensitive. She at times takes things too seriously and jumps to conclusions without always thinking. Sometimes her words to others may hurt as well, but she is someone who quickly comes to regret her actions. Despite that she is still a friendly and caring person, but it may be hard to become her friend as she doesn’t always trust others. She is the third most mature of the group however and has a bit of a motherly side. Is shy of guys and doesn’t have the best relationship with her mom since she believes she abandoned her.
Kei- Abby’s old childhood friend. Kei is an excitable, outgoing, and a bit overbearing. She always tries to be friends with everyone however, but this works against her at times. Unlike Abby, Kei is filled with positivity and strives to spread it around to those who often feel sad. She’s not one to take no for an answer, which prompts her to be a bit annoying, but she has a good heart and has won the friendships of many. Still she is a lazy girl who has a rather short temper when it comes to people she dislikes. Given her love for track she is quite strong able to even take guys down. Despite this she has more fondness for music and longs to one day leave the island to make a music career. Sadly that might not be possible given her mother. She is also a bit of a prankster and holds trust and honesty close.
Chris- A friend of Kei’s. Chris is a serious, diligent, and a slightly jealous girl. Unlike Kei she works hard in school and tries to prove herself to her piers and more importantly her family. She holds perfection highly and has strived to be ‘perfect’ and refuses to believe it’s impossible. Given her being a bit cold and uptight, Chris doesn’t have many friends in school. However due to her being reliable she is often given the tough tasks that her piers don’t want , which isn’t exactly a good thing. Though seemingly mature Chris is actually quite childish in a way as she’s easily angered when someone bothers her and gets upset at Kei’s laziness. She also isn’t the most tolerable person and gets jealous of others at times especially her siblings. Still she is a good friend to have as she will always try to help others and give good advice. For her though she is actually quite lonely and at times feels like an empty vessel.
Emily-An underclassman who is often in the shadows. Emily has little care for most and often spends her time with her head in a book. To her life is more of a hellish reality while the world in her books is the ideal life. Emily is cold, quiet, and a bit too honest. She isn’t afraid to express her feelings and it’s her brutal honesty that has made her target number one for her classmates. Still she isn’t the snow queen that everyone believes since she actually has deep love for her grandmother who is one of the few who understand her. Despite being mature for her age Emily has abandonment issues and can get easily attached to a person she cares deeply for in fear that they will leave her. In truth though Emily use to be a very friendly and happy girl but that all changed when she received the huge burn mark at the right side of her eye. Still maybe with the right group of people she will understand the true meaning of friendship and trust others again.
Yoko- A half Japanese and half american student who has a deep love for money. Like Kei, Yoko is popular at school but more for her looks and intelligence. She can be a friendly person, but she is also very competitive and at times looks down on others. She tries her best to earn the respect of others by using her brains and skills with business. Like her dad Yoko has a love for money and is very good at handling it. She also has pride in her family background and will not stand for anyone who says otherwise. Sadly, despite how things may seem, she isn’t the happiest person as her parents put much strain on her life to shape her in their image. Though money seems to be her only hobby Yoko isn’t happy with it and seems to be secretly taking up a new hobby that she hides from many.
Mara - Best friend of Yoko. Similar to Yoko, Mara is from a rich family, but she is a someone who will be friends with anyone no matter who or what their family backgrounds are. She is a friendly and in a way motherly girl who will try her best to care for others who need it. Sadly her compassion can often be taken advantage of given how gullible and naive she can be, which is why Yoko often has to take care of her seemingly clueless friend. Still Mara may not be as naive as some think and actually might be able to read people much more easily, which can either be a good or bad thing. Mara’s passions lie in acting and she is becoming a very talented actor. However with playing so many roles, one has to question her true personality.
Riko-Abby’s older sister. Riko has taken in Abby in order to help her little sis recover from the past. Unlike Abby, Riko is a friendly, outgoing and a bit cunning. She loves her sister deeply though sometimes her forceful ways make it hard for Abby to deal with her. In terms of hobbies, she aspires to be a painter and hopes to start commissioning, but until then she has to do a part time job in order to pay for food and other things. Though close with Abby, she hides certain secrets from her sister that she fears may trigger her traumas again.

Common Route Route-10% (includes prologue)
Secret Characters Route-0%
A/N- This is a rough estimate of everything done. I'm proud that I actually have a good amount of the common route done and same with the outlining. As for characters more will be coming soon once I've thought about them more. I will say there will be two more girls but they will be secret paths.
