Shiroe (シロエ)Race: Half-Alv
Affiliation: Debauchery Tea Party
Shiroe was a graduate student majoring in engineering when he was trapped in the game Elder Tale. Naturally a cautious and thoughtful introvert, he has played the game since middle school and is a veteran with a near-encyclopaedic knowledge of the game, which is known for its depth and complexity.
Although Shiroe is socially awkward and tends to be asocial, he does not actually dislike other people. Instead, he is fiercely independent and wary of others who approach him with ulterior motives. He is not above helping people who are really in need, and he appears to have a soft spot for beginners - for example for the twins Tohya and Minori. In addition, he can be quite protective of people he cares for, a trait that Nyanta used to tease him about.
These past few years have seen a new, rising trend in anime - series set in the virtual reality of an online game. These MMORPG anime like Sword Art Online have had a great reception among fans. But what exactly about this premise is so appealing to its targeted audience?
Assassination, the art of silent killing. From ancient ninjas with knives to modern hitmen with sniper rifles, assassins have played a dark, prevalent role throughout human history. However, anime assassins tend to be slightly more capable than your average real life assassin...be very scared.
