Contents

Introduced in Shuffle!

Rin Tsuchimi

Rin Tsuchimi (土見 稟 Tsuchimi Rin ?) 
Rin Tsuchimi is a seventeen year-old high school student and the male protagonist to the series. In the game, Rin is the role that the player assumes. As noted by Kaede, Rin's main virtue is his kindness. This is both his greatest strength, as the girls love him because of this, and his greatest weakness, as shown later in the series by his indecisiveness and goal to make everyone happy, which usually ends up hurting them instead. Rin shows minimal initiative when dealing with girls, but he develops feelings for both Sia and Nerine quickly when they arrive and spends more and more time with them. With regards to Kaede, he thinks of her as a childhood friend only. When people comment that Kaede and him would make a good couple, Rin either waves it off or says that it is strange to think of it that way. This distance kept between them is caused in part by Kaede and Rin's dark past.Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (Japanese), Jerry Jewell (English) (anime only), Hikaru Midorikawa(Drama CD), Kagura Akagi(Really? Really!)

Lisianthus

Lisianthus/Kikyou (リシアンサス / キキョウ Rishiansasu / Kikyō ?) 
Nicknamed Sia (シア Shia ?), Lisianthus is the daughter of the King of Gods and came to the human world as a possible marriage candidate for Rin. She possess a very boastful and energetic personality and holds great optimism. Though poorly skilled at academics, she has excellent cooking skills. Her magical capability is poor, but she makes up for it with brute force by hitting people with objects ranging from chairs to tables. Lisianthus has two personalities because when she was in her mother's womb, her twin sister Kikyou couldn't survive. Sia decided to save Kikyou by putting her soul inside of her own. Kikyou emerges (takes control of Sia's body) when Sia is depressed or when she feels that Sia should be more aggressive on Rin. She also confesses to Rin that although he doesn't love her back, she will keep on loving him because the gods believe in polygamy. She tells this to Itsuki when rejecting his advances.

Nerine

Nerine/Lycoris (ネリネ / リコリス Nerine / Rikorisu ?) 
Nerine is the daughter of the King of Devils and, like Sia, is also a marriage candidate for Rin. Nerine is a more capable magic user than Sia, and occasionally uses it to devastating effect. Similar to Sia, Nerine has absorbed the spirit of Lycoris, her clone, because Nerine had caught an incurable illness, Lycoris gave her life to save Nerine. Unlike Sia, however, this has not led her to developing multiple personalities and only caused her to share Lycoris' emotions and singing voice. Nerine is very shy, and respectful. She enjoys getting to know and learn about her peers. While her cooking skills are poor, her magic capabilities are impressive, with enough destructive power to level entire city blocks. Her grades in school are also excellent. Initially, Nerine often becomes depressed when seeing Rin with Sia, but after her confession to Rin about Lycoris' identity and her own love for Rin (which had blossomed during her effort to fulfill Lycoris' last wish), she no longer becomes depressed, as she realizes that she would never win Rin's heart.

Kaede Fuyou

Kaede Fuyou (芙蓉楓 Fuyō Kaede ?) 
Kaede Fuyou is Rin's beautiful childhood friend who grew up with him in the same house after her mother and Rin's parents died in a car accident. Some time after they started junior high school, Kaede started taking care of Rin, everything from housework to making him his meals. She is very down to earth, modest, polite and soft-spoken. However, at times she is seen showing signs of psychosis and even violence when a great shock upsets her. In the original game, this is only visible in the backstory, after her Mother dies, but in the Anime, she also exhibits this behaviour when Rin become close with Asa, and Kaede attacks her when she visits. In order to atone for her actions in the past, in which she mistreated Rin, Kaede decides to make herself Rin's personal slave by cooking his meals and doing all the work around the house. Rin does not want this, but he is afraid of causing Kaede a relapse by not allowing her to punish herself in this way. Kaede is shown to have romantic feelings for Rin, but considers herself unworthy to be loved by Rin or to stay by Rin's side. However, though it is not romance, Rin cares deeply about her. Although she has come to terms with her own feelings, she continues to love Rin, and declares this in the last episode.

Asa Shigure

Asa Shigure (時雨亜沙 Shigure Asa ?) 
Asa Shigure is Rin's friend and senpai. While she has a weak constitution, she makes up for it with her energetic personality. Despite being a touch of a tomboy,[1] she is an excellent cook. She uses English loan words often and is notable for her "Hello!" greeting which is her catchphrase. She does not have long ears (even though she is half-human half-demon). Note that some observers believe she has long ears with the tips hidden beneath her ribbon but this is not the case. From time to time she'll flirt with Rin, tease him, and give him a nice big slap on the back. However, it was later revealed that there were numerous guys who had a secret crush on her. Nevertheless, nothing much came out of it as she rejected them and the show didn't delve any deeper into the issue. In the end they ended up together.

Primula

Primula (プリムラ Purimura ?) 
Nicknamed Rimu (リム Rimu ?), Primula is a strange, stoic and calm girl that's often seen carrying a stuffed cat around, which is a present from Rin to Lycoris which before she died she gave it to Primula. She is the third artificial life form created from a result of gods' and devils' experimentations from which she escaped from to go to the human world to search for Rin, because Lycoris told her about him. Primula has good relationships with the other clones, because she was Lycoris´s sister. Additionally, with her young appearance, Primula serves to fill the lolicon niche of the series. Voiced by: Hitomi (voice actress) (Japanese), Cherami Leigh (English), Minami Hokuto(PC)

Kareha

Kareha (カレハ Kareha ?) 
Kareha is a god who is Asa's friend and classmate; consequentially, the two are often seen together. She has a catchphrase of saying "Maa! Maa! Maa!" (translated "Ooh, la la!) whenever she sees something romantic or cute, and starts to daydream.

Voiced by: Yura Hinata (Japanese), Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)

Mayumi Thyme

Mayumi Thyme (麻弓=タイム Mayumi Taimu ?) 
Mayumi Thyme is a heterochromia-eyed girl, who is in Rin's class, good friends with Kaede and is always looking for news. She has the smallest bust size in the series, a fact often made fun of by Rin and Itsuki. Nonetheless, she takes pride in her small breasts, rationalizing that by being below average they are a rarity sought after by a select group of men. She may show feelings for Itsuki, despite of their frequent quarreling. Voiced by: Miki Inoue (Japanese), Kate Oxley (English), Nasumi Katori(PC)

Itsuki Midoriba

Itsuki Midoriba (緑葉樹 Midoriba Itsuki ?) 
Itsuki Midoriba is Rin's "bad" friend and classmate. He addresses himself as "oresama": a rather arrogant version of "ore" (the masculine word for "I" in japanese). Being the Don Juan of the class, he is envious of the girls' attraction to Rin and often mentions that he will take care of the girls that he doesn't choose. Itsuki and Mayumi often fight over comments made about Mayumi's bust size. Voiced by: Hideki Oyinara (Japanese), Todd Haberkon (English)

Voiced by: Chinomi Takema (Japanese), Luci Christian (English), Mari Oda(PC)

Eustoma

King of Gods (神王 / ユーストマ Shin-Ō / Yūsutoma ?) 
Lisianthus's father and the lord of the realm of the gods. He is big, musclebound, and enjoys drinking sake. Despite his best intentions, he often embarrasses his daughter, and it is a running gag in the series that she frequently has to hit him with a chair in order to calm him down (to his great displeasure). Voiced by: Jūrōta Kosugi (Japanese), Travis Willingham (English), Gorō Hama(PC)

Forbesii

King of Devils (魔王 / フォーベシイ Maō / Fuōbeshii ?) 
Nerine's father and the lord of the realm of the devils. He is a lustful character and thus quickly gets along with Itsuki in the beginning of the game. Like the King of Gods, he too has a habit of embarrassing his daughter. Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Vic Mignogna (English), Sagano Shiba(PC)

Ama Shigure

Ama Shigure (時雨亜麻 Shigure Ama ?) 
Ama Shigure is Asa's mother and the first artificial life form created by the gods and devils. She has the habit of drastically reducing names to cute nicknames (Asa for instance is referred to as "A-chan") and for wearing a cat-ear hat(which is actually a cover for her demon ears).

Introduced in Tick! Tack!

Sage

Sage (セージ Sēji ?) is a character in Navel's Shuffle! media franchise. She is introduced as a main character in Tick! Tack! and appears as a secondary character in Really? Really!

In Tick! Tack!, Sage (she is called se-chan by Mayumi and red form Nerine) is Forbesii's maid. In the normal timeline, she marries him and is the mother to the true Nerine. At the very beginning of Tick! Tack! Sage was initially introduced when Nerine's group discovered the entry to Forbesii's Mansion. Later on, Nerine revealed that Sage was her mother, this surprised her friends, including Rin.

Sage is very energetic and cheerful in almost all circumstances.She is a great housemaker and good at hiding her feeling, especially towards Forbesii, to whom her whole heart is dedicated to. However, since Forbesii is a prince and she is just his maid, Sage tries to provide services to Forbesii and dedicated her life to it in hope that she may not have to leave him when he is married to his fiancee, Ai. But after several contacts with her master (e.g. in the kitchen, when Forbesii tries to cook, taking Sage's duty away from her), Sage felt more and more attracted to him. She later confessed to Rin that she loves Forbesii, but the feelings between her and Forbesii is a contrast to theirs and no matter how she tries, her feelings will be discarded away.

In the normal timeline, Sage had been proposed by Forbesii after she gave him a New Year gift. However, due to the presence of Rin and company in the past, this event has been skipped and caused Nerine to turn to her red-haired form.

In the alternate timeline (which the group has meddled with) Forbesii's proposal to Sage happens after Sage told Rin that she loved Forbesii, after that Forbesii found both Rin and Sage at the side of the lake. Unable face her master, Sage runs away and accidentally fall into the lake and Forbesii rushes to save her. Later on, at the mansion, Sage caught a terrible cold, so she have to take a rest until the next morning. While she is sleeping and Rin watches her, Forbesii come in and tells Rin what he felt about Sage. He proposes to Sage the very next morning.

Following the theme of characters from Shuffle! being named according to flowers, her name refers to the Salvia genus of flowering plants, more commonly known as sage.

Ai

Ai (アイ Ai ?) is a character in Navel's Shuffle! media franchise. She is introduced as a main character in Tick! Tack!.

Ai is first introduced in Tick! Tack!, where she is Forbesii's fiance. In the main timeline, they break their engagement and Forbesii marries Sage instead, but the timeline may be changed so that Ai does marry Forbesii and becomes the mother of the alternate, red-haired Nerine.

At first, Ai was thought to be Nerine's mother since Nerine's hair, grace and measurements matched with that of Ai more than that of Sage, it's no surprise that the group have misunderstood her as Nerine's mother.

Ai is a real fair lady and may be a part of the Royal Family of the Demon World. She is well-educated, graceful and gentle and has always been seen smiling sweetly (even when she is sad and sobbing). Her speech, thoughts and actions can be considered 'Big-Sisterly'. She oftens refers herself as 'Ai-Onee San (translated as Big sister Ai)' towards Rin. Her speech pattern even seem 'Big-Sisterly', even to those who seems to be older than her e.g.Forbesii.

Ai has several 'over-leisurely' activities such as taking a bath (according to her, her average time in the bathroom is about 4 hours), or standing against the cool breeze at the mansion's balcony (according to her again, this is the way she thanks her fate that let her meet Forbesii).

Ai seemed to know the feeling of Forbesii and Sage toward each other, she often encourages Sage to state her feelings, though it seemed more like a way of making fun of her. Although she loves Forbesii more than anyone else, she is still pleased to give in and allow him to free his heart to whomever he loved.

Ai (藍) is the Japanese word for Persicaria tinctoria, or the Japanese indigo. Since her name is written in katakana, it can also carry a secondary meaning of 'love' (愛).

This article is about the character Lisianthus; the plant genus formerly called Lisianthus is now called Eustoma, which itself should not be confused with the character Eustoma (Shuffle!).


Lisianthus Eustoma,[1] or Sia for short, is one of the main characters in Navel's Shuffle! media franchise. She is the princess of the god world and came to the human world as a possible marriage candidate for Rin Tsuchimi.

Lisianthus is the only daughter of Eustoma and Cineraria, making her actually half-god, half-devil, but she only inherited the god racial characteristics of her father. Through Cineraria, she is Forbesii's niece and Nerine's cousin. She is also the non-biological daughter of Iris and Liliac, as Eustoma practices polygamy. Despite her fondness for her father, Lisianthus has a habit of hitting him with a folding chair, in a fashion similar to WWE, if he embarrasses her in front of her friends.

Lisianthus is named after the Eustoma russellianum, or Bolero Deep Blue, of what used to be known as the Lisianthus genus.[2] In hanakotoba, (the Japanese language of flowers), this flower has connotations of "hope", "wish", or "aspiration".[2]

Lisianthus is voiced by Sayaka Aoki and was designed by Aoi Nishimata. She is voiced by Brittney Karbowski in the English version of the anime.


Kikyou

Kikyou (キキョウ Kikyō?), also referred to as 'Reverse Sia' (裏シア Ura Shia), is Sia's younger twin sister.[3] While still in their mother's womb, it was determined that Kikyou wouldn't be able to survive. In order to save her sister, Sia absorbed Kikyou's soul into her own body. As a consequence, Kikyou's personality sometimes emerges, and the two share the body, not always comfortably.

While Sia inherited her father's god traits, Kikyou is the devil side of Sia's split heritage and resides in Sia's unconscious.[4]

When Kikyou takes control of the body, there is a slight physical change in her appearance. Kikyou narrows her eyes more than Sia and has her eyebrows set lower. Personality-wise, Kikyou is much more flirtatious and sexually aggressive than Sia is.

In Japanese, kikyō (桔梗) refers to the Chinese bellflower.
