Held down in her daily life, Ann feels like she has no place in the world. Despite her respectfulness and politeness towards her peers and elders, she’s more withdrawn and isolated than she appears. This is due to a rumour regarding her and Kamoshida. She only opens up to her only best friend, Shiho. Her attachment to Shiho is so strong that she is willing to do what Kamoshida orders her to do, so long as it’s for Shiho’s sake. Thus, her headstrong and fierceness comes out if someone hurts her friends.
When she becomes a Phantom Thief, Ann becomes more lively and energetic. She shows off a stronger will, never to be used or abused again like a slave. Her voice actress describes her as someone who is snarky and confident. But deep down, she has a sense of goodness and justice. One of the few things she desires is to something she feels is right.
While she’s confident in her looks, Ann shows signs of being flustered and embarassed when forced into a situation. Especially the kind of situation that forces her to expose her skin without consent or desire. She has a tendency to mock or prank people who ogle her like Ryuji Sakamato.
Ann is a classmate of the protagonist in 2-D, a sophomore. She and Ryuji Sakamto were classmates in middle school. Her blonde hair is due to her being 1/4 American but, this causes her to be isolated. Her foreign blood, her living abroad, and most of all – the rumours about her and the volleyball coach Suguru Kamoshida isolate her from her classmates. The only friend she has is Shiho Suzui who she protects. She reluctantly makes appearances with the volleyball coach to protect her friend from him. The protagonist first meets Ann when both were waiting until the rain stop. She is then picked up by Kamoshida, and reluctantly goes with him.
