Misao is an obedient girl who develops a dark side after her death. Her appearance is simple, as she wears the same uniform as the other girls. Her long, dark hair is kept straight, her bangs falling below her brows and just above her amber coloured eyes. After she goes missing, Misao's body is dismembered. Her brain, head, eyes, legs, arms and heart are all cut off. A clear target for bullying. Even after death she shows obvious desire for appeasement.
In Truth when Aki confronts her in the final room her appearance is distorted, freaking out when he sees her, Tohma attempts to escape before Aki steps in. After Misao suggests that they all stay together in the afterlife, Aki refuses and brings out the pocket mirror, showing Misao what she has become due to her lust for revenge. She has her head tilted upwards and blood running down her face from her eyes and mouth, her eyes are red and her uniform is bloodstained, producing a rather demonic appearance.
At the beginning, the only known information regarding Misao is that she had mysteriously vanished three months before the game, with many of her classmates believing that Misao was already dead. In addition to that, a conversation overheard by the player from other classmates (Tohma, Yoshino, Saotome, and Kudoh) reveals that she may have had a crush on Tohma and was bullied by Yoshino before her disappearance. After, several strange paranormal events began and it's discussed amongst the others that these may have been Misao's doing. When Tohma jokingly and mockingly asks Misao to 'spare' him from her wrath, Misao unleashes a true curse and sends the school, and everyone in it, spiraling into an otherworldly realm filled with terrifying monsters and ghosts.
Misao originally contacts the player through their dreams, asking them to "help" and "find her." When she enacts the curse, the player is the only one who can still hear her voice, continually pressing the character to find her.
Misao's Tragic EndEdit
At the end of the game, Misao reveals to the player what exactly happened to her before her disappearance in a series of flashbacks. First, she shows the event where Yoshino told everyone in the class that Misao had a crush on Tohma. Shocked and embarrassed, she withstood the teasing until Tohma came up to her and responded that he had a crush on her as well, reciprocating her feelings in a surprising turn of events. Yoshino stood by and incredulously commented on the affair until Tohma told her to butt out.
The next flashback showed Misao wondering why Yoshino would blurt out her hidden crush, but brushes it off in a kind manner and decides to thank the pink-haired girl instead. She then receives an embarrassed text from Tohma, telling her that he liked her and asked if she liked him back. The scene cuts off as she writes her reply.
Misao then shows what happened afterwards, in which the text is then printed out and tacked onto a bulletin board for everyone to see. In the background, we see a character sprite of a long, blonde-haired girl that may or may not be Saotome, turning away from the bulletin board when Misao runs up to it before walking away. The text itself was filled with Misao's private feelings towards Tohma, including the poem she'd written, and she runs away in dismay.
In the following flashback, Misao slowly walks back to her classroom, theorizing that it was Yoshino who had took a peek at Tohma's phone then published the text. She also correctly guesses that Yoshino herself liked Tohma, but defends her position as Tohma's girlfriend solidly before she's about to head back into the classroom. Unfortunately, Misao instead overhears Tohma talking to Saotome, saying that she was the only one who he had shown the same text to and pressing her for the truth. It's a little vague if Tohma was fooling around with Saotome or if he was actually just confronting her, but from the outside of the classroom, it sounded more like the former. Most likely feeling betrayed, Misao runs off yet again, but this time a sympathetic Kudoh is seen watching her leave.
In an abrupt change of pace, the next scene depicts Misao being bullied in a bathroom by Yoshino and two other girls. She doesn't fight back, but she does remark that Tohma will never make Yoshino his girlfriend if she continued to bully Misao. This caused Yoshino to become even more violent, finally taking part in actually hitting the poor girl. Determined to make Misao regret her words, Yoshino takes a lewd photo of her and blackmails her into silence for all the bullying that she's endured up till now. Then, she encourages a boy to "give her lots of love," locking Misao in the bathroom stall to be raped by him.
The next flashback shows Misao sobbing in the bathroom stall, most likely having been left there after the boy had raped her, and night had already fallen in the school. She hears a voice and it is revealed to be Mr. Sohta, who had probably heard her crying, and chastises her for being out so late. Unable to stay calm, Misao breaks down in front of Mr. Sohta and he comes to her side as the flashback turns black.
When we next see Misao, she's seen sitting at Mr. Sohta's desk, with Mr. Sohta comforting her and asking her what was wrong. This directly contradicts a statement the teacher had made to Pewdelia before, in which he had said he didn't have time to listen to Misao and had ignored her. Watching the events unfold, the player then learns that the bullied girl lied to Mr. Sohta about the physical and sexual abuse, probably in remembrance of Yoshino's blackmail. Misao instead tells him that she'd had her heart broken and that she was crying to herself in the corner of the bathroom. The older man replies that he himself had been like that once, but Misao had found that hard to believe, complimenting on his gentle and popular nature. After comparing his own past to her, but remarking that she was much more 'charming', Mr. Sohta then hugs her from behind, causing her to become confused and uncomfortable.
He then reveals that the rumor of his hand fetish is true by admiring Misao's hands, and she pushes him away in fright. She backs herself into a corner, but Mr. Sohta continues to pursue her as the scene fades. It is assumed that she is raped again, this time by Mr. Sohta. Off screen, Misao screams and the teacher yells back, outraged at Misao's rejection. When the screen comes back, Misao is dead, with Mr. Sohta standing over her body...
Mr. Sohta then drags Misao's body to the same bathroom stall where she was raped the first time and holds up a saw, dismembering her body as he claims her.
Three months later, Misao invoked a curse apon the school that was only reversed when the player found her head, heart, eyes, arms, legs, and brain, then chose the final sacrifice, the curse filled the school with monsters and traps that often prove fatal on encounter with few exceptions, some traps scary (like the "you're dead" paper) some relatively bland (hitting head on wall as phone rings), only Tohma, Sohta, Onigawara, Library and the player survive long enough for the collection of Misaos parts however, ether Sohta or Tohma must be killed to ended the curse, freeing Misao's soul
Misao returns to torment the souls of Kudoh, Saotome, Yoshino and Tohma, she torments Kudoh by constently telling him to suffer and is stopped by the player when she/he tells Kudoh that its only his own darkness telling him that, Misao then appears and tells him that she was happy he thought of her, Misao mades Saotome suffer by making out with Tohma infront of her, Saotome then bashes Misao and Tohma with a bat when she remembered Tohma abandoning her, Misao tormented Yoshino by becoming three and rabidly attacking her but is stopped by the player, she then questions the players motive, saying "you were my one friend" the player reveals that she hadn't moved on while she was doing all this, Miaso finally torments Tohma by keeping him in the dark realm, Tohma tries to run away apon seeing Misao, as all her hated had paled her skin, redded her eyes and coursed blood to run from her eyes and mouth, she accepts herself as a monster, but is saved by the player and returns to her normal self.
Tohma - Misao's classmate. He has a crush on Misao. Tohma admits to also liking Misao; however, he could have been lying at the time.
