Personality & CharacterEdit
Hoshiai is Kuon's childhood friend from elementary school who goes the same university as him. He doesn't have any goals for the future and often cuts classes to spend a lot of his time at amusement arcades. His weapon of choice within the game is a silver longsword with a blue gem in the hilt, based on a keychain he owned as a child that served as a symbol of his friendship with Kuon. In the third round of the death game, he is possessed by a Horror and asks Kuon to kill him. While the friend is hesitating, he detonates his explosive collar to kill himself before fully becoming a Horror.
