Introducing the main character! Yoshiya, or Isa as he prefers to be called even though it's his last name, is a highly adaptable, sagacious and somewhat cunning ambivert. He is a multifaceted individual who despite being the player character, is absolutely his own fully fledged person!
Although far from being his only interests, Isa does tend to gravitate towards many things considered traditionally "girly". These include romantic novels, cutesy simulation games, stuffed animals (although he's recently stopped buying those), etc. Additionally, he has much more knowledge of makeup, hair care, nail care, skin care, diet balance and women's fashion than most people would expect from a guy.
This all stems from the fact that Isa's family is entirely female, his father having passed away while he was very young. Consequently, many of Isa's interests tend to coincide with the interests of his three sisters, with some of them, mainly his abilities to apply makeup, do nails and style hair, being direct results of them just not wanting to do those things themselves.
Isa didn't learn these skills begrudgingly however, he chose to learn them out of his own curiosity. He absolutely could have refused to entertain his sibling's laziness and none of them would have really held it against him outside of some whining. It just happens that he's the type of person who enjoys learning new things, and with no one around to unfairly shame him for it, he never really had any reason to shy away from things that other guys may have considered too feminine.
In truth, due to his close relationship with his sisters, along with the fact that, due to the limited schooling options in his hometown all of them went to school together, for the better part of his life Isa hadn't really had any male friends at all. With the few he did eventually make having... ulterior motives that he may not have picked up on until after moving.
This is all to say that Isa tends to feel most comfortable around women, and other guys tend to avoid him due to his femininity. Not out of malice mostly, they just find him difficult to speak to in the same way that they would a girl, and conversely girls tend to find him easier to speak to.
It's no wonder then that in his new and intimidating city environment, he would meet and befriend many girls in his grade, if only to find some comfort in something familiar. How these friendships will develop and what experiences await him as he begins his new urban life have yet to be seen!

Kana is a carefree, outgoing and somewhat clumsy girl who can seemingly get along with almost anyone. She's the type to relish small victories and power through minor setbacks.
Getting something she really wanted on sale, finding lost money on the street or making a new friend mean a lot to her, while she'll hardly ever dwell on things like losing money herself, being lied to or making small mistakes, instead using these as learning experiences.
While she doesn't dwell on things that upset her, it doesn't at all mean that she's a pushover and contrary to her cheery exterior, she doesn't struggle with making hard decisions or cutting someone off if she believes they're a negative influence on her life, so try not to grow complacent.
She absolutely loves video games and has frequented arcades since a very young age, fighting games in particular being her favorite. A different side of her may come out during a heated match, although she doesn't like to talk about it.
Being an Oni she's monstrously strong, and despite her size she's actually much stronger than the average Oni at that, although it's a level of power that is more or less useless in the peaceful modern era outside of things like manual labor.
Knowing this, she often volunteers to use her impressive strength to help out around school with strenuous tasks like carrying heavy boxes or moving desks and other furniture all at once, and while she finds these small acts of kindness worthwhile she has no plans to do physical labor as a career.
She tends to warm up to people who don't struggle to keep eye contact faster than those who do, but beyond that she seems extremely easy to befriend.

Alys is a stubborn and capricious but good natured girl who refuses to mince words, and as a result has very few close friends. Contrary to the controlling perfectionist vibe that she tends to gives off, she's actually most comfortable in situations where she can just go with the flow, be it in a conversation or a relationship.
However, although she would much prefer to be constantly lazing around, she's been considerably multitalented since a young age, and as a result she's lived her life driven by other's expectations of her, especially since she's had to exist in the shadow of her mother's long life of accomplishments.
She hates lies, and especially people who lie to themselves or put up facades, and this intolerance has drawn permanent rifts between her and people she was once very intimate with.
Being a member of the now relatively small but generally wealthy race of Elves, as well as the daughter of one of Elf societies most influential members, Alys was born sheltered and privileged. As a result she lacks some forms of common sense, mostly having to do with money and the value of things.
As an Elf, Alys was taught by her mother from a young age to value nature, in fitting with old Elven tradition. Although very many generations have passed since Elves were allowed to freely commune with nature, and as such most elves don't care nearly as much as they used to about the environment and its upkeep. Despite this, Alys has accepted it as her personal duty, passed down to her by her mother, to preserve the beauty of the natural world.
She appreciates anyone willing to sacrifice a weekend to plant trees or pick up litter in a park, and will get along best with those who do so without complaining.

Kaela is a conscientious, introverted girl who goes out of her way to keep her surroundings under her direct control as much as is feasibly possible. Most of the time she comes off as carefree or detached, but in reality she simply refuses to wear her true feelings on her sleeve, although some are able to force her true colors out of her.
Being someone with many closely guarded secrets, she's not quick to open up to people and isn't very likely to even start trying to get to know someone unless they seem useful to her in one way or another.
You would expect someone so blatantly untrusting to have a troubled home life or a family devoid of love, but while it may well be troubled in some respects, her home life is actually very warm with her parents and siblings all loving her very much.
That is to say that Kaela was not raised to be this way, ending up the way she is because of other factors.
As far as hobbies go, along with a love for fiction, and really just reading in general, Kaela is also a huge history buff, and she finds it easier to hold a conversation about politics than many of her peers, taking delight in heated debate. She will often play devils advocate in a discussion simply to test how strong someone's beliefs are.
Being a Demon, or Svartálfar as they generally prefer to be called, Kaela is very magically powerful, something her race had prided themselves in before the restrictions on magic usage were instated worldwide, in no small part due to their misuse of it. In spite of the law, Kaela uses her abilities in secret nonetheless simply because they're convenient, much to the dismay of her parents.
She's likely to take at least a passing interest in anyone who expresses dissatisfaction with the current state of the world.

Io is free spirited and self made. Everything she has she worked hard for, earning her the adoration of many even now, years after her modeling days had concluded.
She's known to be rash and impulsive, as well as lazy and self serving, believing that she's earned the right to be after pulling her and her family out of poverty. Why the principal and other teaching staff still put up with her when she regularly and unapologetically disregards school regulations is unknown.
In fact, it's unknown why she chose to be a teacher at all, seeing as she doesn't have much drive for it, some speculating that she may have some kind of secret relationship with the principal himself.
Either way, she seems content with her current job despite arguably not being very good at it, although other areas of her life have been causing her stress as of late.
She may seem frivolous, and well, she is, but she's also known to have an unshakable moral compass. Being as impulsive as she is though, she is prone to making rash decisions, especially in stressful situations.
Although now retired as a model, Io still keeps up with fashion, her sometimes unbusinesslike attire being one of the many points of contention between her and other staff.
Being a Siren, Io possesses the ability to sway people with her voice, especially those of the opposite sex. In most other Sirens, this usually isn't that useful of an ability contrary to what the general public may believe, being more of a soothing or therapeutic effect than anything bordering on mind control. Io's aptitude is unusually strong however, so it's possible that she can, and likely has performed even more impressive feats.
Io allows stares to a certain extent, since she's quite proud of her looks, but she'll be sure to let anyone who has been looking for too long know when she's had enough. She's easily won over by unsolicited and sincere acts of kindness, being so used to empty flattery.

Kyt is easily frightened... to put it mildly. More accurately, she seems to have an extreme aversion to almost all places, things and people. This being the case, she's fairly difficult to track down, which is by design, she would rather not be found.
As far as one could tell, she seems to not have any friends, or even acquaintances. Most people don't acknowledge that she's even there, although it's unclear whether they're ignoring her or if they somehow truly can't perceive her.
The answer likely lies in her race. Animal-like races aren't really all that unusual, although they are a minority, but Sidhe specifically are highly unusual, nonexistent even. Sidhe are a deeply magical race that are intrinsically tied to Witches, and even children know that Witches went extinct long ago.
Despite being mysterious in origin, Kyt herself isn't all that complicated however. She prefers peace of mind so she won't agree to anything potentially dangerous, including but not limited to, going on a car ride, going on a bus ride, going on a train ride, eating hard candies, swimming, etc.
Kyt is easily won over if she believes she'll be taken care of or protected, so making her feel safe is probably the best bet for anyone looking to get closer to her. On the other hand, she will actively avoid people who come on too strong.
She doesn't talk much, so paying close attention to her body language is especially important when trying to communicate with her.
Age: 18? She's in your grade so, probably...

Peal is an enigma. She doesn't seem to act towards any clear goals, or make decisions based on logic. As far as anyone can tell, the sole criteria she uses to determine whether or not something is worth doing is if it's "fun".
Next to nothing is known about her personal life, although she has hinted at the idea of her having a family, and she doesn't seem to have any friends. She doesn't seem particularly interested in actually making friends either, although she's known to call people her friends after interacting with them at least once, even if she never speaks to them again.
She's wearing many more charms than the average magic attuned person, so it can be assumed that she possesses very powerful inherent abilities. This isn't surprising if you take her claims of being a Witch at face value, since Witches were one of the most powerful mortal races of their time, second only to Angels some historians say.
But keeping in mind that Witches are extinct, it's unlikely that this is the whole truth. She doesn't seem interested in explaining any further though, most probably because it wouldn't be any fun.
Peal doesn't seem very easy to get close to, and with so few personal relations it's difficult to discern what she may or may not like in an individual. I figure you'll just have to entertain her.

Beth is an opinionated, misanthropic and cynical individual who is truthfully, fairly difficult to get along with. One might say that she's a victim of circumstance.
Being an Angel and consequently subject to extremely strict, and in her view antiquated rules and traditions, she feels like she fits in neither with her own race, or wider society.
Although she loathes that she can't freely be who she wants to be simply because of the race she happened to be born as, she doesn't go so far as to shirk her responsibilities as an Angel, since without that purpose she feels like she would truly have nothing.
She hopes that by working her way up the ranks, she'll eventually gain a high enough position to be able to make the changes she feels are necessary.
Angels are incredibly powerful, arguably the most powerful race on average, and being that as a group they are tasked with protecting the peace, they are allowed to freely wield their abilities in pursuit of that goal, unlike other races.
Beth is single minded and not easy to keep up with. It's likely that a common goal would be necessary for any kind of approach to be successful.

Retired politician turned model, and retired model turned teacher, Ilse is a well respected and accomplished community figure. So accomplished in fact, that implying that she was just another model or just any politician is selling her extremely short, even despite how impressive those titles are in their own rights.
Being the humble person that she is though, you'd never hear a word about her genuinely significant contributions to society and media from the woman herself.
Of course, not hearing it directly from her doesn't mean you wouldn't hear about it at all, as you'd have to be living under a rock to have never heard of Ilse Lavena, even now, a couple of decades after she decided to move on from her life as a public figure.
This being the case, she's earned the adoration of most of the student body as well as a large portion of the teaching staff, with women in particular tending to idolize her due to her status as a Root, one of the matriarchs of Elven high society. A title that means less now than it used to, but is powerful nonetheless.
However, while Ilse finds all of this very flattering, she also feels that it's unfortunate that there aren't many people that can hold genuine conversations with her. With Io being one of the very few people and the only fellow teacher that she recognizes as a legitimate friend.
Them having known each other through modeling before Ilse's retirement, It's possible that this friendship played some role in why Io chose to become a teacher to begin with, potentially following in the footsteps of her good friend... but who can say.
Ilse holds strong opinions on government and matters of sociology, as one would expect from a former politician. But seeing as how she retired from politics fairly young (by elf standards), it can be inferred that she didn't believe that she was making the kind of change that she wanted to, despite all of her success.
It's not clear whether she simply gave up, found some kind of alternative method to achieve her goals, or if her goals themselves changed. Either way, as far as anyone can tell, these days she seems the prioritize her students, as well as catching up with things that she missed out on over the course of her careers, like movies and television, over pulling big stunts like she used to.
Ilse is a married woman, Alys's mother and potentially more than ten times older than Yoshiya among other things. Needless to say, she isn't interested.
