A deceased AI student. We see the story from his perspective. He had developed strong feelings for Toni, but she had pushed him away because she was teased for dating a machine.

As a result, Henry was tormented by these feelings and further confused by newfound feelings for Juli.
Character 2 Age: 
17-20
Character 2 Name: 
Toni (Open Race)
Character 2 Description:

17-20
Character 4 Description: 
Juli has a lot of anxiety and shyness to her, but she can also be very bubbly and funny when she wants to be. She had feelings for Henry and expressed this toward him. She is depressed by his death and extremely shy and uncomfortable while being interviewed by the detectives.

Cole (Asian)

Additional Characters:
