|Family||Kyoko Kirigiri (daughter)|
|Game||Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc|
Jin Kirigiri (霧切仁 Kirigiri Jin) was the headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy until he was executed and Monokuma/The Mastermind took over. He is the father of Kyoko Kirigiri, one of the Academy students, the Ultimate Detective.
He has dark purple hair and eyes resembling his daughter's. He also wears a black suit with a purple tie.
He is strict to the whole school but has soft feelings for his daughter, Kyoko, and was also impressed by how much she had already discovered when he asked her to investigate Izuru Kamukura in Danganronpa/Zero.
Prior to the TragedyEdit
According to Kirigiri, he wasn't interested in succeeding his family of detectives and left them to eventually become the headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy. He is also the person who planned to lock off the students inside the academy building due to The Tragedy. But later, his plan backfired due to not knowing that the member of Ultimate Despair were already sneak in the groups.
High School Life of Mutual KillingEdit
Although he was executed before the actual events of Dangan Ronpa, he is brought up again later. When Alter Ego decodes the files left on the computer, it reveals to the students that the Mastermind is likely the headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy - a man in his thirties. However, it was unknown to Alter Ego that Jin Kirigiri had already been executed by Monokuma and was no longer the headmaster.
After Kyoko steals Monokuma's key, she investigates the second floor of the school and discovers the headmaster's room. When Makoto investigates the room later, he discovers the door to a hidden room than can only be opened with a password which turns out to be his daughter's name, "Kyoko". In the hidden room, Makoto and Kyoko find a gift box containing human bones, which Kyoko deduces are those of her father and the headmaster, Jin Kirigiri.
