The cast of Absolution is very small, and very few of them make a long appearance or have a big impact on the story itself. The main characters are as followed:

  • Kaori Tokoyu: She is the main character of the game, and the only survivor of the crash that took place two years ago.
  • Kazuki Kozawa: He is a close friend of Kaori. They met soon after the accident occured.
  • Akiko Tokoyu: The sister, and only close relative, of Kaori. After their mother died, their relationship eventually fell apart, leaving unwanted tension when Akiko ultimately left.
