hay there! peaches here! ok. another info page! this one is about higurashi no naku koro ni! :D

Name:Keiichi Maebara
Age:about 16 
Keiichi is the main protagonist in the first three "question" arcs. The son of a famous artist, his family recently
moved to Hinamizawa after an unfortunate event involving him in their hometown. His charisma and remarkable talent for
speech making allow him to easily make new friends and become popular in the village, not to mention win some of the
club activities. Early in the story, in the Onikakushi-hen and Tatarigoroshi-hen arcs, he is the one affected by the
paranoia and driven to commit murder; however, the inner strength and unshaken belief in his friends he acquires in the
other arcs are one of the keys to solving the mystery. Eventually, he is even able to recall some of the events of the
past repetitions. When he is in need of a weapon, he wields Satoshi's old baseball bat. It is later revealed in the
story that before arriving at Hinamizawa, he was the perpetrator of a series of crimes involving shooting young girls
with his toy gun.

Name:Rena Ryugu
Rena is a girl who returned from Ibaraki to Hinamizawa one year ago, and is in same grade-level as Keiichi. She has an
obsession with things she perceives as cuteógenerally, these things are not considered cute by others. Every now and
then, she goes treasure hunting in the town's trash heap, searching for 'cute' things to collect, and upon finding
something "cute", it's difficult to stop her. She has a habit of repeating words at the ends of sentences, most famously
kana? kana? (かな? かな?, kana? kana?? lit. "I wonder? I wonder?") and when finding something
cute, she says Haū! Omochikaerī! (はぅ〜!
お持ち帰りぃ〜!, Haū! Omochikaerī!? lit. "Haū! I want to take
it home!"). When in "Take it Home" mode, she comically becomes stronger and faster. Despite this disarming trait, Rena
is shown to be amazingly observant and perceptive about the things around her (in Watanagashi-hen, she was able to
deduce that both Rika and Satoko went to the Sonozaki house by looking through the contents of their fridge and a
flier). According to Mion, while Rena might seem cute herself, people should be careful not to anger her as she becomes
quite scary when angered. She is especially sensitive about the topic of Oyashiro-sama; in Tsumihoroboshi-hen, her
delusions about the god's true nature go so far as to make her take the school hostage, trying to unreasonably force a
police investigation into the matter. When she needs a weapon, she uses a large cleaver that she found at the trash
heap. Her real given name is Reina (礼奈, Reina?). 

Name:Mion Sonozaki
Age:about 17
Mion is the oldest classmate in Keiichi's class. As the elder, she is the class president and everyone looks up to her
as the leader. Her social skills are on par with Keiichi, whom she highly respects as a friend and rival (though it is
later shown that she has a crush on him). She acts like a tomboy, and calls herself oji-san (meaning old man), but has a
hidden girlish side. She is next in line to be the head of the Sonozaki household, one of the Three Families which holds
tremendous influence in Hinamizawa. Right before tattooing the symbol of an oni, which is reserved for the older sister,
she was mistakenly identified as the older sister which means that she was actually born as Shion Sonozaki, the younger
sister. Since then, she switched her identity of Shion with Mion, the older sister. She is often seen with a holstered
airsoft gun, even though she is never seen using it, and was removed in the PS2 adaption of the game; she is, however,
very adept in the use of martial arts. She is notable as the only character that has never been driven to the extreme
paranoia (on screen) that causes the others to kill in the question arcs and the first two answer arcs. Her real name is
actually Shion, as she was born second to the family, but due to sister swapping even at a young age, she was mistakenly
taken as Mion and branded with the family tattoo, ultimately causing her stay as Mion. 

Name:Shion Sonozaki
Age:16 or 17
Shion is Mion's identical twin sister, who currently resides in Okinomiya. In spite of their different personalities,
she and Mion often switch places, and it can be difficult to distinguish between them. Their first switch took place
when they were little. Right before tattooing the symbol of an oni, which is reserved for the older sister, she was
mistakenly identified as Shion, the younger sister, which means that she was actually born as Mion Sonozaki, the older
sister. Since then, she switched her identity of Mion with Shion, the younger sister. She was sent by the Sonozaki
family to a private boarding school, but escaped and returned to live near her hometown, where she lives with Kasai. In
spite of all this, she and Mion maintain a close relationship. She was in love with Satoshi, and blames the Three
Families of Hinamizawa for his disappearance in Watanagashi-hen and Meakashi-hen (the latter told from her point of
view); this, along with a different demonic sadistic personality she manifested in her grief, drove her to mass murder.
One of the last words that they exchanged before he disappeared was a promise to take care of Satoko, something which
she has taken to heart after Meakashi-hen. She works as a waitress at the Angel-Mort restaurant and is the manager's
assistant for the Hinamizawa Fighters little league team. She is often seen carrying a taser, and also wears yellow
ribbon in her hair. 

Name:Satoko Hojo
Age:Probably 12 or so
Satoko is a younger classmate in Keiichi's school. She has a distinctive style of speech, ending all of her sentences
with ~wa. In spite of her young age, she seems to have an impressive arm strength and is quite clever in setting up
traps, and likes to practice on Keiichi. Although her personality is quite energetic and mischievous during the events
of the games, Satoko's past was full of trauma; her parents died in an accident, she was abused by her foster parents
(her aunt and uncle), and her beloved brother Satoshi disappeared. However, in Matsuribayashi-hen, Irie suggested she
killed her parents, as she had a bad relationship with them and felt threatened, and so to her it was an act of
self-defense. Though she greatly misses Satoshi, and feels that by being strong he will return, she comes to regard
Keiichi as her new "nii-nii" (a cute term for older brother), and once even regards Shion as "nee-nee". She dislikes
Kabocha, and cannot tell the difference between cauliflower and broccoli, because she is colorblind. 

Name:Rika Furude
Age:Probably same age as Satoko
Rika is the main character in Minagoroshi-hen. She is a younger classmate in Keiichi's school, and is in the same grade
level as Satoko. Naturally, she is great friends with her, as they live together in the same house. She is revered by
the villagers as the heir of the local shrine, and plays the role of a miko in the annual Watanagashi Festival. She has
been the head of the Furude house since her parents died, but rarely attends town meetings due to her young age. While
she does not speak a lot, she likes to say nonsense words such as "mi~" and "nipa~" and often ends her sentences with
"-nano desu", which inflame Rena's passion for cute things. She also likes to describe events using sound effects, such
as "The cat was going 'nya nya' and 'scritch scritch'" or saying "Clap! Clap! Clap!" when clapping her hands. In fact,
she is one of the main components of the eternally repeating June 1983, and is the only one who is consistently able to
remember the past repetitions. She believes she has lived over 100 years by the time of Tsumihoroboshi-hen, but
continues to act like a child in order not to alarm her friends. Prior to Matsuribayashi-hen, she is the only one able
to see Hanyū, who has been an "imaginary friend" to her all her life. Despite her young appearance, she seems to be
quite fond of wine, as well as kimchi, which she uses to silence Hanyū when Rika is in a bad mood; this works
because both Hanyū and Rika's senses are linked together, though this seems to be redundant by Matsuribayashi-hen,
possibly because of Hanyū's coming into the world. The wine she drinks is hinted to be Bernkastel vintage. 

Name:Hanyū Furude
Hanyū is the mysterious "transfer student" in Matsuribayashi-hen. She has a pair of dark colored horns on her head,
one of which is chipped slightly (however, no one seems to notice or mention them). In fact, she has appeared to Rika
all her life, but only in Matsuribayashi-hen and Miotsukushi-hen did she gain the power to interact with others. Like
many of the characters, she can be frightening when angered, and with her spirit like nature, her appearance can change
with her mood until she takes a physical form. She is the one responsible for the eternally repeating June 1983, which
she created in order to save Rika from being murdered. She is very meek and often makes the noise "Au au, au auÖ" when
she is nervous or uncomfortable, or sometimes while trying to make a point. She dislikes alcohol and kimchi, which Rika
imbibes in large amounts as punishment when she finds Hanyū annoying (as both Hanyū's and Rika's senses are
linked together). Rika refers to her as "Oyashiro-sama" when talking with others (evident from Shion's chat with Rika in
Meakashi-hen) but does not personally think of her as Oyashiro-sama; instead, she sees her as a close friend.
