CHARACTERS



Atsuki

A visitor with recent trauma visiting the tower for personal reasons, not because of the event. He finds himself actively engaged in the mysteries surrounding him.

Shiroya

Atsuki’s childhood friend who is also struggling internally. She hopes that visiting the tower will allow them to heal.

Sai

A young man with a sharp wit and a tongue to match. Sai is a schemer, quick to see the truth and willing to throw everyone else off-course for the sake of confirming his thoughts.


Akaro

A visitor with an inconsistent mood: sometimes carefree, sometimes serious. Although he doesn’t seem interested in the event, he was the first in the tower.

Erina

Erina is Isla’s mother who was initially excited to go to the event, but regrets her decision once they’re locked in. She has no explanation for her daughter’s behavior.

Isla

An excitable and bubbly girl. Despite being in an emergency with inexplicable events, she is unusually calm—much calmer than the adults.



Katei

The head of security at Ashiya Tower who understands the mechanism that locked them in. Despite his confidence, his words sometimes seem to contradict reality.

Naomi

An employee at Ashiya Tower and the guide for the event. While showing the exhibit to the first group, smoke fills the room and she disappears.
