Suzune Horikita (
Suzune has long black hair with one braid tied by a pink bow as well gradient red eyes and she is always seen with a stern look on her face. She has slim but well endowed body which makes her stand out as a beautiful girl.
She usually wears the standard school uniform.
A serious intellectual girl, who rarely shows any emotions and seems generally unfazed by most things, this was seen as she was unmoved by a boy from Class C threatening her. She comes off as rather cold to her classmates due to her lack of communication with them as well her tendency to distance herself from them. Because of this attitude she is openly honest about many things, which is shown when she admits to having no friends as she thinks that friends will only serve to drag her down, but this begins to change as the series proceeds.
Suzune possesses antisocial outlook that has caused to hardly talk to anyone except Ayanokōji (who she sits next to) and not to trust anyone like those who try to befriend her such as Kushida. Unlike Ayanokōji, who seeks to make friends, she is the opposite of him when it comes to friendship as she disregards it as nothing but a distraction and thinks of only of getting promoted to the A-Class. It is highly suggested she was placed in the class because of her inability to work properly with people or her tendency focusing too much on her goal that distracts her.
She is not easily convinced, as she refused to accept that she was placed in the D-class and strives to ascend to a higher class. She refuses to believe that she needs friends to help her though she does force Ayanokōji to help her reach her goal. This thought, however, was refuted by her brother, who suggested that she has no knowledge of her lack of character which is greatly holding her back.
While she is generally composed, her emotions truly surface when she is in the presence of her older brother, who is, at the time, the student council president. This fear shows that underneath her cold exterior there is a fragile side to her which is usually shaken. She greatly admires her brother, but at the same time feels inferior to him due to his accomplishments compared to her shortcomings. Suzune was shown to shake in fear of him as well which was shown in their secret meeting especially when he nearly attack her in Episode 2 of the anime. This was seen again in Episode 5 where she couldn't talk when at the hearing of Ken Sudō and was only to able snap out of it because of Kiyotaka.
Despite her disdain and cold attitude, it appears she is truly a caring person as she was willing to sacrifice 50,000 points to save Ken Sudō from being expelled after he failed a test. Suzune explained that she did so to further her own goals but this event and her previous attempts to help him study suggest otherwise. In Episode 5, Suzune also defended Sudō's case and while she does criticize him, she firmly declared him to be innocent in the fighting incident.
As a result of her personality and inability to associate with others, Suzune was placed in Class 1-D, the lowest ranking class but she believed that she will ascend the ranks and enter Class 1-A, the highest ranking class of the school.
After her entry into the class, she does not associate with her classmates even rejecting some of their offer of friendships. Despite that, she finds herself interacting Kiyotaka Ayanokōji, whose insightful yet mysterious personality catches her interest.
During one meeting with her brother, he tells her to drop out of the school since his reputation which he worked hard to build would be tarnished. She pleads to him to hear her out as she was going to make it to Class A but he tells her that her shortcomings are preventing that. He grabs her and prepared to inflict pain on her to punish her but Ayanokōji intervened on her behalf. She begged him to go as it was not her problem, just as he complied he has a brief scuffle with her brother but manages to avoid the latter's strikes and come out unharmed. Manabu leaves but not before hinting at some of Ayanokōji's past which leaves Suzune in wonder.
- She scored perfect marks for all subject but English in her midterm exams. She purposely obtain low marks at English for the sake of lowering the leverage of the passing score.
