Appearance

Korekiyo is a tall, slim student with rather pale skin and long black hair. He has rather narrow golden eyes, and his mouth is covered by a black mask with a zipper on it, giving him a frightening appearance.

He is wearing a dark green military-style uniform with matching knee-high black boots. The uniform consists of a white shirt underneath it, a dark green button-up, and a red band around his left arm. He wears what appears to be some kind of locket around his neck. Both of his hands are notably completely covered in bandages.

Personality

Korekiyo is a somewhat strange but very cool-headed, and intelligent person.[5] He has the experience of having met to a huge variety of human beings for his cultural anthropology research and because of that, he can keep himself composed even under the confinement circumstances and believes in facing things with calm and rational approach rather than an emotional one.[6]

He has formed a pet theory of "humanity's unlimited beauty", and he has a deep interest in it. During the killing game, he observes other students with interest in seeing what kind of beauty they will display as humans under such circumstances. This may imply that he has somewhat cold personality as he possibly values his theory over the safety of others.

His values are stated to be a bit off, and he is even aware that his appearance and behavior cause him to come across as a potential murderer.

Skills and Abilities

Ultimate Anthropologist

Korekiyo is an anthropologist, to be precise, a cultural anthropologist that researches customs, legends, folklore, poetry, etc. His particular field of study is culture and ethnical customs whose historical origins have yet to be made clear, like shichigosan or setsubun. He tries to inspect and elucidate those kinds of traditional customs from a rational perspective and states that cultural anthropology is like a science that tries to observe humanity itself.[7]

In the prologue, Korekiyo was gathered with the other normal-looking students inside the gymnasium of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles. Due to the unclear situation, he warned the others not to exit the gym because of the exisals that wondered through the entire academy. However, it turned out that the exisals were already inside and ambushed the students. Later, it was revealed that the Monokuma Cubs was the one who controlled them.

The Monokuma Cubs explained that Korekiyo and the other students originally had "amazing" talents that they forgot, and their plan is to restore their memories. After wearing the new clothes that the Monokuma Cubs gave to him, Korekiyo and the others warped back to the beginning point of the story.

Trivia

  • Korekiyo's first name (是清) can translate as "just and pure".
  • His last name is composed of the characters 真 - meaning "true", 宮 - meaning "palace" and 寺 - meaning "temple".
    • Interestingly, the word 宮 miya, aside from its literal meaning, is also used to refer to (usually larger and/or more significant) Shinto shrines, while the word 寺 tera is reserved for Buddhist temples. Considering how Shintoism and Buddhism are practiced side by side in Japan, and how Japanese folk culture draws heavily from both faiths, Korekiyo's last name could be said to imply at his field of expertise.
  • Korekiyo's voice actor, Kenichi Suzumura, is married with Maki Harukawa's voice actress Maaya Sakamoto.
