|Yanagi Chikafuji, a second-year at Gekkoukan High, isn't regularly a name on anyone's mind. She's best described as quiet, distant, or shy by those who are acquainted with her, and no one would actually claim to know her well. Still, she's a good listener if someone needs a shoulder to lean on, she's reportedly a math whiz, and she's made a splash in the Art Club as a watercolor prodigy, despite her protests to the contrary. Her life was saved during the Dark Hour by SEES, who have started to teach her about her Persona, whose abilities seem to lie largely in support rather than frontline fighting. Yanagi spends a lot of time comparing herself to others and finding herself wanting - for talent, popularity, you name it - she's convinced she's never as good as someone else. However, a deep-seated desire to protect others and the fact that she's starting to finally make friends may help her overcome this obstacle in her path.|

|Persona and Resonance|
Cassandra, also known as Alexandra, was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Her beauty caused Apollo to grant her the gift of prophecy (or it was snakes licking her ears clean, depending on who you believe), but when she did not return Apollo's love, he placed her under a curse so that no one would ever believe her prophecies. This eventually drove her mad, as she witnessed tragedy after tragedy but was unable to warn anyone - notably the Trojan Horse, the fall of Troy, and her own demise at the hands of Clytemnestra.
Yanagi's resonance is subtle, but there. The most noticeable aspect is the complete absence of sound: there is no sound associated with her resonance at all; there is, in fact, a distinct and palpable lack of sound, like a still-frozen pond on a winter's day, when the wind has absolutely stopped and no one is crunching through the snow. The coppery tang and scent of blood. A sensation of a snake's scales brushing lightly against one's neck, cheeks, and ears. A fleeting, recurring feeling of certainty of knowledge, and of frustration.
|Notable Social Links|
|VII: The Chariot
Yoh Yamagatani - Combat comrade and drawing practice buddy! Yoh and Yanagi share a common dislike of a certain Stregite, having narrowly avoided being singlehandedly wrecked at his hands; she gifted Yoh with a cactus while he was in the hospital. (Yanagi is bad at gifts!)
XV: The Devil
Itsuka Mizuhara - Yanagi's senpai, and one of the few people to have seen her dorm room. She admires Itsuka's seemingly-free spirit and constant encouragement - as well as her motorcycle. So badass, you guys, you don't even know.
Nagisa Renge - While she and Nagisa may not have been super-close, she nevertheless liked the girl the few times she met her, even if she was wary of her social group (particularly hearsay about Daisuke). She was rather shocked to find out about Nagisa's death.
