Throughout her stay in the silent town of Le Choara, Death end; ReQuest 2 protagonist Mai Toyama will interact with several students in her all-girl dormitory, Wordsworth, and the local, monotheistic religion, El Strain. Not only that, a few familiar faces from the first game are set to join the mystery as well.
First up, we have Shizu Melonis, the highest ranking maid in Wordsworth Dormitory and confidant to Headmistress Midra. She not only serves as a maid but also helps with educating the girls of the dormitory.
Making up one of Vina Miles' mean girl group "The Three Bullies", Molly Pagan uses her tall stature to intimidate the other girls. When she isn't clinging to her bully leader, Molly is actually quite weak on her own.
A victim of bullying herself, Pick Holly was saved by the queen of the bullies, Vina Miles herself. Partly out of gratitude and partly out of fear, Pick joined Vina and became the very thing she hated: a bully.
Being both the oldest student at Wordsworth Dormitory and a devout member of El Strain, Betty Paris looks down on everyone, especially nonbelievers.
Half-Japanese, half-Italian, Kajita Rosso is an archaeologist who wanders into Le Choara after reading a TWANA.org article about "an underground ruin that leads to God." He is spurred by mystery, adventure, and his insatiable appetite for knowledge.
Lastly, Bishop is the passionate leader of the El Strain church. Though she is admired by the citizens of Le Choara, Bishop keeps her face hidden from view.
Now for the returning characters. First, we have occult-obssessed Sumika Tokiwa. She is a valuable programmer at the Enigma game company.
Next is the happy-go-lucky sales rep of Enigma, Natsuo Munakata. Though he is made fun of often, he is a diligent worker.
A soft-spoken office manager and secretary to the CEO of Enigma, Rin Asukaze she is a hard worker at the company and supportive of her coworkers.
Before we wrap things up, here is an overview of game company Enigma, Wordsworth Dormitory and El Strain:
What is Wordsworth Dormitory?
Wordsworth is an all-girl's dormitory for troubled and orphaned young women where Mai and her classmates live, attend classes, and learn about the town's history.
Throughout the game, there will be choices you will have to make that will impact what happens to the characters Mai meets in Le Choara.
Can you protect Mai's dormmates from the monsters that lurk in the night?
What is El Strain?
A monotheistic faith which seemingly governs the affairs of Le Choara.
Their doctrine preaches togetherness and compassion, but the townspeople do not force newcomers to abide by their faith. It is led by the Bishop, one of the town's leading figures.
Death end re;Quest 2 releases on PlayStation 4 and Steam sometime during Summer 2020. Steam players will be able to use the original Glitch costumes for returning playable characters from the first game, but they will be available only during battles.
