Riku Soma is one of the male students that currently attends Akademi High School.

Appearance

Riku wears the default male school uniform, unless customized by the player.

He has purple hair that is spikier than Senpai's default hair with some loose strands jutting out from the right side. His eyes are purple as well.

Personality

Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Riku is a Teacher's Pet. If he sees a corpse or witnesses a murder, he will run to his classroom and report to his teacher, unless another Teacher's Pet already has. He cannot participate in physical fights against murderers.

Routine

At 7:05 AM, Riku enters the school grounds. He walks to his locker at 7:10 AM and changes from his outdoor shoes to his indoor shoes. At 7:15 AM, he walks into the plaza, to the right side of the fountain, and gossips with Haruto Yuto, Sota Yuki, Hayato Haruki, Ryusei Koki, and Sora Sosuke.

At 8:00 AM, Riku walks into Classroom 3-2 and sits at his desk. He starts his morning classes at 8:30 AM, and leaves to go to the cafeteria to gossip at 1:00 PM.

Riku walks back to class again at 1:30 PM and finishes his afternoon classes at 3:30 PM. At 3:40 PM, he stalks Kokona Haruka while she's in the Cooking Club; he then lingers around the school. At 5:30 PM, he then heads to his locker and changes from his indoor shoes to his outdoor shoes, then walks home.

If it is Friday and he's been successfully matched with Kokona, he will meet with her by the Confession Tree instead of going home.

Tasks

Main Article: Tasks

Riku wants the player to take a picture of the kitten behind the school so he can see if it's well. After the task is completed, Riku will thank the player and also befriend them.

Background

As stated in his student profile, he comes from a rich family. He tries to hide the fact from others, but his affluent origins are very obvious because of his unusual way of speaking.

Relationships

Kokona Haruka

Main Article: Kokona Haruka

Riku has a crush on Kokona and is her suitor. If he is matched with Kokona, the two will begin a romantic relationship.

Quotes

I saw the most peculiar thing today - there was a kitten walking around the school! I'm not sure how it got in here... It was quite an adorable little creature. I wish I could get a second look at it... If you see that kitten anywhere, would you mind taking a picture of it for me?
