She is an indoor-type girl and doesn't like living things. She originally planned to join the handicraft club to spend a happy high school life. But after accidentally meeting with Yuuki Kuroiwa while she was out for a walk, she was forced to join the mysterious "Teibou-bu" (the embankment club) and started fishing.
