Akira Seo (瀬尾 晶, Seo Akira?) is an underclassman and friend of Akiha Tohno's at Asagami Private Girls Academy. Her eyes give her minor precognitive powers (although usually not entirely clearly), and she previously appeared on the Tsukihime PLUS-DISC. She met Shiki Tohno in the events of "Alliance of Illusionary Eyes", and they have remained in contact, to Akiha's chagrin.

Brainwashing-Detective (洗脳探偵, Sennō Tantei?) is a parody design of Hisui detailed in Character Material. She came about due to the original release of Tsukihime having a large number of typos that led to some very strange lines. Hisui's lines were affected in particular, which made the line You're the criminal (あなたは犯人です, Anata wa hannin desu?) into You're going to be the criminal (あなたを犯人です, Anata wo hannin desu?). The typos were corrected during the final version, but they remained popular as memes that eventually lead to the character's creation. She does not make any appearances in main works, but she has a brief role in a segment of Carnival Phantasm.
Brainwashing-Detective, also referred to as the "Locked-Room Detective (ロックドルーム・ディティクティブ, Rokkudorūmu・Ditikutibu?), is a famous detective who resolves difficult cases beyond the reach of normal deduction. She resides in a place called Tohno City, which exists in a world of despair wherein the very concept of maids has been destroyed. Silently judging the world with an emotionless countenance, she is a cold, logical preserver of the law whose case resolution rate is 100%, feared both by the perpetrators and victims of crimes. She continues her involvement in criminal investigation because she has judged it the most efficient method of locating her beloved long-lost twin. Incidentally, her true identity is unknown, and she patrols the streets of Tohno City every night for the sake of finding her sister.
The nature of her existence is similar but different from that of a Magical Girl, more accurately existing as a Dark Hero (ダークヒーロー, Dāku Hīrō?) of the night-shadowed metropolis. Her main skills are psychological modification, narrative correction, and confession enforcement, and she pierces to the very heart of incidents with her dark, blue eyes. It could be said that she is a bizarre individual who pursues justice with a crazed intensity, whose odd manner of verbalized deduction, saying things like "motive from alibi (アリバイから動機です, aribai kara dōki desu?)" or "deductive perfection (推理に完璧です, suiri ni kanpeki desu?)", is nevertheless strangely compelling. This is due to her special ability, "Locked-Room Detective", that does not refer to a specialization in locked-room mysteries, but rather her own unique method of deduction.
Locked-Room Detective causes a bizarre phenomenon to occur under the condition that she and one suspect of her choice are confined to a locked room alone. Within minutes, the suspect is induced to make a full confession to the crime, and confirms themselves as the perpetrator. Though her method to her deductive reasoning is presumably amazing and brilliant, none besides herself and the suspect of her choice bear witness to it. Per her cool character, when her the ability is active, her sitting posture takes on an air appropriate to that of an "absolute dictator of logic."

Fake Shiki (偽志貴, ?) is a person who sees Shiki Tohno, is enthralled with him, and wishes to take his place. Has the ability to see the records(memories) of one's life upon meeting. Also capable of sharing perceptions to an extent.
Forte (フォルテ, Forute?) is a member of the Mage's Association, the oldest daughter of a magus lineage of many generations. She often takes tasks like protecting Seal-Designed Magi and recovering grimoires. She is sent to investigate the Forest of Einnashe, encountering Satsujinki and being defeated without receiving a scratch on her body. She understands that it is a complete and utter defeat, and she is surprised she even still lives. She asks for his name, but she cannot understand him due to not speaking Japanese. She inscribes his poorly heard name into her memory, and remarks on how his display of ability shows that even Nrvnqsr Chaos had certainly been exterminated before she departs.
Forte is a rare kind of magus who has experienced many gruesome melees, and she has the capacity to face those of the Burial Agency. Although she resembles a blade-wielding swordsman, she utilizes her sword as a magical staff. She favors spells called Aero Strikes (空気打ち, Kūki Uchi?), and using three orficies on the body of the sword to generate sound, making it not fit for slashing, creates a resonant effect to produce an invisible impact on the target several hundred meters away. She has the Wind Element, which she shares with Aoko Aozaki, whom she has encountered several times.

Ichiko Inui (乾一子, Inui Ichiko?) is the older sister of Arihiko Inui. Known to be a heavy smoker. She works at night, and sleeps in the day, demanding that her younger brother keep quiet. No one knows what her job actually is, and Arihiko has wondered about it for many years. Arihiko considers her to be irresponsible and childish, citing her tendency to run around and do as she pleased after their family's death.
|Also known as:||Nrvnqsr Chaos|
|Appears in:|| Tsukihime|
|Character type:||Dead Apostle|
Maiko Yamase (山瀬舞子, Yamase Maiko?), a young woman with minor role in Tsukihime, and the lead role in the Kagetsu Tohya side story Daybreak. She lived with her parents and younger sister Akemi in Misaki city, whose only appearance in Tsukihime was during the fight scene between Nrvnqsr Chaos, Shiki Tohno, and Arcueid Brunestud. During this short appearance, Yamase was eaten alive by the injured Nrvnqsr. It was her death which helped motivate Shiki to victory.
In Daybreak (alternatively translated as Dawn), Maiko reawakens inside the body of the dead Nrvnqsr several months after her death, which regenerated itself from the fragments used by Arcueid to heal Shiki's injuries. After encountering Ciel and Arcueid, and bidding her sister goodbye and a happy birthday, Yamase is killed by Shiki in much the same manner as the original Nrvnqsr. Her final act is to rescue her sister from the chaotic lives that make up her body, even as Shiki delivers the death blow. Maiko appears to be a case of an inherited Reality Marble, acquiring the Lair of the Beast King, though the reason for this has not been clarified. During the side-story, her head and neck appears as she originally did while she was alive (as the story is narrated from her point of view, her actual appearance is never shown on screen) but the rest of her body is a 'black mass' like Nero, though the outlines are those of a womans. She is capable of adapting her appearance to a limited scope, including taking the appearance of Shiki Tohno. She is also a black belt in an undisclosed form of karate.

Makihisa is the one responsible for much of the events of this series, due to his kidnapping of Nanaya Shiki from his family, hiring Kouma Kishima to slaughter the rest of the Nanaya Family, his brutal treatment of Kohaku, and his strict training of Akiha. He, like all of the Tohno family, possesses demonic blood, which caused in him bipolar disorder along with schizophrenia. And although his face was never clearly shown, In the manga, it was evident that during the massacre of the Nanaya's that he had similar abilities to that of SHIKI Tohno, as he could solidify blood from inflicted wounds and use it as a sword-like weapon.
Before the events of the game, he was seemingly murdered by SHIKI. It is his passing, along with the awakening of Roa/SHIKI, that begins the events of the game. During the course of the game much is revealed as to why Shiki was brought into the Tohno family and how Hisui and Kohaku came to be at the mansion.
Master Panda is a character introduced in Character Material. He wears a panda suit with "Nanatsu-Yoru", the name of Shiki Tohno's knife, written on the back. He taught martial arts to Miyako Arima, and has the same voice with Shiki Nanaya. He later makes an appearance in Carnival Phantasm, as one of the characters sitting in the background. He appears unmasked at the time but is too small to be identified.

Narbareck (ナルバレック, Narubarekku?) is the first member and current technical leader of the Burial Agency. She is very young, but she is powerful enough that she has captured three Dead Apostle Ancestors. She loves killing, most likely getting turned on from it. She is generally shut in the executive room of the Agency as a form of incarceration for that same reason. Word of her infamy has even reached the Mage's Association. She is descended from another Narbareck, the co-founder of the Agency along with Roa, both of them being good friends at the time. Only she and Ciel have seen Merem Solomon's true form, while the rest have only dealt with the priest alter-ego of his left arm. She sent Ciel to destroy the Forest of Einnashe in talk., but Ciel believes that it is likely a test to see if she is worth keeping around without her immortality. She believes Narbareck is simply telling her to die, while Merem says that it's just part of Narbareck's rotten spirit and that she likes Ciel's stubborn personality.
Phantas-Moon is a magical girl parody of Arcueid Brunestud that is detailed in Character Material. She appears as a playable character in the Fate/tiger colosseum series. In Carnival Phantasm, there is a TV show based on her.

Sougen Jinan (時南宗玄, Jinan Sōgen?), father of Jinan Tokie, is a doctor who's an old friend of Shiki's father, Kiri Nanaya. He also seems to be an acquaintance to Tohno Makihisa. Being a former member of an organization who monitored the Demon Hybrids, he knows a lot about the Demon Blood and Demon-related topics. He's retired now and running an informal infirmary.

Tonami Kugamine (久我峰斗波, Kugamine Tonami?) is a man formerly engaged to marry Akiha Tohno, in presumably an arranged marriage by her father, Makihisa. Once Makihisa died, Akiha immediately called off the marriage and evicted Tonami from the Tohno Mansion. It is fairly clear that Akiha does not like him very much at all. But since they have a say in about a third of the Tohno family matters that concern a corporation, even the Tohno household can't afford to mistreat the Kugamines. He seems to have calmed down a bit, after his engagement with Akiha was dissolved, and he even seems to have taken a liking on Shiki, so he cannot treat him harshly.
|Japanese name:||四條 司|

Tsukasa Shijyou (四條 司, Shijyou Tsukasa?) is an underclassman at Asagami Private Girls Academy. During the events of A Story for the Evening, she wishes for Akiha to disappear, in accordance with one of the rumored Seven Curses of Asagami, involving postal boxes, and gets nervous when Akiha does not disappear as it means the wish will be reversed to her within a week's time. As a result, she panics, and attempts to kill Akiha to fulfill the wish so as to save her own life, only to be knocked unconscious by Akiha instead.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Seo Akira [Person's name], p.183-184
Akira Seo [Person's name]
A student at the Asagami Academy for Girls. Akiha's junior.
She appears in a side story included on the Tsukihime Plus Disc, "Alliance of Illusionary Eyes", and also makes a cameo appearance in Kagetsu Tohya.
Her relationship with Akiha is a comparatively long one, and she has been Akiha's junior ever since she was a member of the middle school student council. She's in the somewhat comical position of idolizing Akiha, yet knowing enough about her terrifying aspects to be afraid of her as well.
She secretly makes doujinshi in her spare time, though very few people at the academy are aware of it. Akiha is the only person that knows about how she sneaks into the toilets in the middle of the night to work on it.
As far as boys are concerned, she's more attracted by their voices than their looks. When she heard Shiki's voice over the phone, it was a dead-center 150 kph fastball strike, or something to that effect. After that, she began to harbor a yearning for Shiki similar to adoration, but since she was scared of Akiha she never called him.
She has the power to see predictions of the future as images (future sight), and because of that ended up being dragged into a murder case.
According to Shiki, it would be great if she was his little sister. If Akiha ever found out he said that, it would end terribly for both Shiki and Akira.
Given that she attends the Asagami Academy for Girls, it should go without saying that she's a well-born girl. Her family runs a large liquor store in Aomori. As you'd expect from somebody growing up in that kind of environment, she can really hold her own when it comes to drinking.
By the way, in kanji "Akira" is written with the character for "crystal". As in, a crystal ball that sees the future.

For the sake of finding her sister, she patrols the streets of Tohno City tonight as well.
Special Ability: "Locked-Room Detective"
The name of Brainwashing-Detective's ability does not refer to specialization in locked-room mysteries. Rather, in the condition that she and one suspect of her choice are confined to a locked room alone, a bizarre phenomenon occurs whereby -- within minutes -- the suspect is induced to make a full confession to the crime, and confirms themselves as the perpetrator. Though her method to her deductive reasoning is presumably amazing and brilliant, none besides herself and the suspect of her choice bear witness to it.

Brainwashing-Detective Hisui [Colloquial term]
An inside joke. It became popular after the release of the Half-moon edition.
In that version of the game, Hisui had an odd habit of saying mind-reeling phrases like "I'll accompany your room." No matter how you look at it, she was definitely trying to brainwash poor Shiki.
Even the art director got in on it, and posted a picture of Hisui trying to brainwash Ciel on the Tsukihime BBS, which was cuter than you might expect.
"You are the culprit."
Later, it was revived as Hisui's Arc Drive in Melty Blood.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - talk. Glossary: Forte [Name • Colloquial Term], p.200
Forte [Name • Colloquial Term]
A magus of the Association.
A rare magus who experienced gruesome melees such as protecting Seal-Designed Magi and recovering grimoire.
Forte favoured spells called Aero Strikes, and the sword acted as the magical staff.
There were three orifices on the body of the sword, thus the sword was not quite fit for slashing. The purpose of the orifices was to generate sound. Slashing the sword generated a resonant effect, producing an invisible impact on the target.
She looked like a blade-wielding swordsman, but this swordsman performed her swordplay hundreds of meters away from her opponent.
The oldest daughter of a mage lineage of many generations. It seemed like she encountered Aozaki, who also shared the Wind Element, several times.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Inui Ichiko [Person's name], p.176
Ichiko Inui [Person's name]
Arihiko's older sister. Her nickname is Miss Strawberry.
Because Shiki has been hanging out at the Inui house since he was a middle school student, Ichiko could also be considered an acquaintance of his. Or perhaps it would be better to call her an existence he can't defy.
Though her way of life is even more self-indulgent than Arihiko's, she is a splendidly independent adult woman.
As far as Shiki and Arihiko know, she's a mysterious person who changes jobs about once a year.
Sometimes if something good happens she'll give Shiki a present to commemorate it, but invariably it's always something completely inscrutable. Still, since it seems to mean a lot to Ichiko, Shiki values them greatly.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Tohno Makihisa [Person's name], p.185-186
Makihisa Tohno [Person's name]
Akiha and SHIKI's father. He took in Kohaku and Hisui as tools to restrain his Tohno blood, and adopted Shiki for his own amusement. He was a mischievous prankster who diligently held on to his private papers. He had a strong, self-indulgent feeling of being victimized, and you could probably say that it was his weakness that invited tragedy into the Tohno family.
In order to protect his family (blood relatives) and solidify the Tohno's position he forged connections with the demon hunter organization, which was locked in a cold war with the demon hybrids at the time. By entering into a cooperative relationship with the demon hunters, he was able to gain sovereignty over the entire Misaki City region.
However, he was still unable to control his dread toward Nanaya Kiri, the bloodthirsty killer he saw as a youth while serving under a certain old man. So, after consolidating his power, he launched a surprise attack on the Nanaya village and completely wiped them out.
As for how he died, that was covered in the main story.
It was karmic retribution, an end appropriate for one who was in no way a bad person, yet caused so much harm.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Narbareck [Person's name], p.186
Narbareck [Person's name]
The woman standing at the top of the Burial Agency.
She's not the same Narbareck that was talking to Roa, but it just so happens that the administrator of the Burial Agency is always a member of the same family. The current Narbareck is a homicidal maniac, and has shut herself away in the Burial Agency's executive office.
…Well, it's more like house arrest, really.
She regularly bullies all the members of the Burial Agency when they return from missions, and in turn they basically all wish she would just drop dead.
As the powerhouse whose job it is to reign in all the freaks in the Burial Agency, her infamy even reaches as far as the Association. Despite her young age, she is a monster that has already captured three of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Jinan Sougen [Person's name], p.182
Sougen Jinan [Person's name]
As the Tohno's exclusive doctor, he is Shiki's primary care physician.
It seems that he used to be a member of an organization that monitors demon hybrids, and was friends with Nanaya Kiri. However, he has since retired, and is currently some sort of shady back-alley doctor.
Since he knows the true nature of Shiki's anemia, he has been maintaining his health with Eastern medicine. It's not a cure, but that's the beauty of it. Of course, Shiki's anemia was never something that could be cured in the first place.
According to Shiki, he's a mad doctor. Though he is foul mouthed, he is also possessed of a strong sense of duty, and it seems he is acquainted with Miyako. Probably, she used to tag along with Shiki when he visited the Jinan Clinic while he was living in the Arima household. As his appearance suggests, he has an interest in Chinese martial arts, and may even be the one responsible for teaching Miyako the basic forms.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Jinan Tokie [Person's name], p.182
Tokie Jinan [Person's name]
Jinan Sougen's only daughter.
Despite her warm and cozy atmosphere, she is actually a foxy seductress who targets younger men.
She is Kohaku's elder fellow pupil in pharmacology, and an expert in acupuncture. She's even stood in for her father and medically examined Shiki's body before, so it goes without saying that their relationship was not an ordinary one.
She only showed up for a split second in Kagetsu Tohya, but she still managed to stir up some trouble. It may be that she was destined to become a schemer the very instant she became a pupil alongside Kohaku.
She is a devilish woman, who ruins men. Or rather, the man she marries will undoubtedly be content with his life, but also utterly unable to function as a human being without her. Mmm, well, it may not be what he always dreamed of, but as long as he's happy it should be okay, right?
Ibara-hime (Kotori Kirihara)

 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Kugamine Tonami [Person's name], p.178
Tonami Kugamine [Person's name]
Eldest son of the Kugamine, the Tohno branch family with the most material wealth. He was engaged to Akiha as a matter of convenience.
He is mentioned briefly in name only in Tsukihime itself, but in Kagetsu Tohya he displayed his awe-inspiring and manly figure.
His outward appearance is that of a good-natured, plump middle-aged man. His true nature, though, is quite different. He is a preposterous person, full of dark and loathsome ambitions. And also a total pervert. He's a voyeur photography buff, and loves girls' bodies (but not girls). In truth, it seems Hisui is more his type than Akiha.
Despite being related to the Tohno, the abnormal blood of the Kugamine is quite thin. Also, though the men of their family are all prone to obesity, their women are apparently extremely beautiful.
 Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Shijyou Tsukasa [Person's name], p.180
Tsukasa Shijyou [Person's name]
A student at the Asagami Academy for Girls. Her pet name is "Ika".
She was an honor student gifted with both intelligence and beauty, capable of accomplishing anything she put her mind to. However, she fell into the grips of obsession with the appearance of the brilliant Tohno Akiha, who outshone even her.
She appears in one of the side stories in Kagetsu Tohya. Perhaps because her timidity and feeling of being cornered were pretty cute, very few players actually ended up disliking her.
Also, she still couldn't stop herself from quivering in Akiha's presence even after the incident was resolved, but she did her best to muster her courage and resist the urge to run away.
