Ringo Akai

赤井 林檎

Also Known As:

  • Red Riding Hood

Age: 16 Years Old Height: 160 cm (5'2.5") A petite red-haired girl who has been longtime friends with Ry�ko. She is the one who recruits Ry�shi into Otogi Bank. She is a close friend of Ry�ko Ōkami, and is always trying to involve herself with her best friend's love life. Like Ry�ko, she tends to smile to hide her true feelings, and admires Ry�ko for trying to become stronger. She is based on the Little Red Riding Hood from the book of the same name, though some aspects of her scheming, manipulative personality closer resemble the poisoned apple ("Ringo" means apple) of Snow White, a fact which is occasionally referenced by the narrator and other characters. She is also the half sister of "Snow White" Shirayuki Himeno and feels responsible for her past.
