Appearance[edit | edit source]
Nemu is a beautiful young woman with stylized ash blonde long hair in a bun with braids, violet eyes, and very pale skin. She carries the grace and balance of a sophisticated noblewoman, and is also rumored to have the blood of a Westerner in her. Her face is also thinner and is considered more worthy than that of a Japanese girl. According to Keisuke, her proportions are perfect.

Personality[edit | edit source]
During Kanae's route, it is shown that Nemu is neither cruel or hateable - she's a sweet girl who cares a lot about Keisuke. She only was playing a role in order to make Keisuke hate her enough for he wants to kill her, all that in order to heal save his life after he was seriously hounded when he tried to protect her. Nemu grew up in a facility where she wasn't allowed to go outside and, then, someday, she ran away and ended up meeting Keisuke, a boy of her age. They developed a strong bound and since then, she never stopped thinking about him, even when they were apart Nemu still made reports about her days in the facility - even talking about Kanae, the daughter of Mrs. Hokari, whom she considered "a friend". In fact, Keisuke was the one that permit her to endure the horrible reality she was in because she was doomed to feel absolute pain and sadness until she left all hope in this word. In the end, Kanae wipes Nemu's memories, making her forget about Keisuke and everything else. Her final personality is childlike and innocent.
