Description

Betty is a veterinarian who works at Seifar Toy Company, Deal's best friend, and a regular patron at VA-11 Hall-A.

She is a lesbian and has had numerous short-lived relationships with other women,<hidden by spoiler settings> usually ending them because of petty problems she has with her partner. Despite this, she feels she may be attracted to Deal, and asks Jill for advice about it.

Betty fosters a dislike of cybernetic enhancements. This is due to her days of studying surgery at medical school when five of her classmates used shady means to try and get cybernetic enhancements for their hands. Although she managed to talk one of them out of it, two of them lost their hands, one of them became arthritic, and another died on the operating table. According to Jill, the man responsible for hooking them up was later caught, as was covered by a news story. Betty makes a distinction that she doesn't have a problem with cybernetic prostheses, only implants that drastically improve ability rather than serving as a replacement. She feels the same way about Lilim who needlessly upgrade their bodies.

<hidden by spoiler settings> She takes great pride in her work, often discussing it with Jill and even Streaming-chan at one point. Her kind nature was also shown when she gave up an entire day's work to come visit Jill when she was feeling down, sleeping with her overnight in order to comfort her, all for enough money to "pay for [a] can of soda".

Description

A White Knight serving under the Valkyrie First-Response unit. Despite the White Knights' reputation, Sei is extremely kindhearted and truly believes in helping people.
Although she isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, she can take care of herself and is one of the most kindhearted characters in the game. She's Stella's best friend <hidden by spoiler settings>and unofficial bodyguard.

Sei and Stella first met when Stella asked her father to take her to a "real kids park". The two formed a close bond and began to meet at the park regularly, until one day while they were there, a rogue White Knight took them hostage, on the run for undisclosed reasons. After being approached by the authorities, he began to gouge Stella's eye out and kicked Sei in the chest after she attempted to stop him, breaking several of her ribs and rupturing her organs, as well as knocking her out.

Afterward, Sei briefly regained consciousness to see the White Knight on the ground, not moving, whilst another had her slumped over his shoulder. He put his helmet on Stella's head and the two were quickly taken to the hospital. Sei was placed into emergency care due to the severity of her injuries and only woke up after Stella began punching her leg, telling her to do so. The two of them recovered eventually.
