Royal Hirado (平戸 ロイヤル, Hirado Royal) is a freshman of Class 13, though she is not a member of the Thirteen Party.

Hirado wears the standard girl's uniform of Hakoniwa Academy. Her dark green hair is done up in two ponytails, and bandages are wrapped around her eyes. Her nationality is Japanese.[2]
