I won’t lose. Haaah... Haaah... I’ll never lose! No matter what happens, no matter what anyone tells me! I’m going to get through this and talk to Eri again!
— Suzu while fighting in the Frost Caverns of Schnee, Light Novel Volume 09

Suzu is the mood-maker of her class as she is usually very cheery and likes to lighten the mood. She also kind of perverted at times towards her friends, making dirty jokes from time to time. However, she is actually quite pure and becomes easily fluster when witnessing the adult situations surrounding Hajime. She often gets overwhelmed by Tio's perverted personality after meeting her.

During her childhood, Suzu is constantly lonely due to her parents being too busy with work to spend time with her. After being told to smile by her caretaker, Suzu crafts her cheerful and upbeat persona in order to get closer with her parents, as well as a way to make friends, but is still depressed deep down.

Like most of her classmates, she is afraid of Hajime's wrath as she took his warning seriously to ensure to her safety as far as she allowed Kaori to be Hajime. But feared worse of Hajime murdered the traitor, Hiyama.

After she and the rest of her class is betrayed by her best friend Eri, Suzu becomes more depressed when she learns that Eri never considered her to be a friend, but she also more focused and determined in order to find a way to talk with her once again. Her determination was strong enough to convince Hajime to give her, Kouki, Shizuku and Ryutarou another chance to conquer a labyrinth and helping him to destroy the god.

Despite appearing happy all the time, Suzu is actually quite perceptive. She is aware that Eri, like herself, is hiding her true persona from the rest of her classmates, and wants to be her friend because of their similar circumstances.

Suzu has an inferiority complex with regards to her appearance. Although she is considered to be "cute" by most people, she feels that she is not as attractive as some of her female friends.

Weapons & Equipment

  • Bracelets - a pair of bracelets that helped strengthen her barrier magic. They were destroyed after Hajime tried to enhance them with new abilities.
  • Twin Iron Fans - two iron-ribbed fans created by Hajime. They are bound to Suzu’s mana and blood, so only she can use them. They are able to reduce the length of Suzu's chants, and can enhance any defensive spells channeled through them thanks to evolution magic. Her fans also absorb trace amount of her mana at all times and store it for future use, as well as reducing the mana consumption of spells cast with them. There are jewels attached to the handle of each fan that allows her to summon various monsters that she controls. Each fan has a specific ability that complements each other. The right fan is used to cast traditional barrier spells, while the left fan can add secondary effects to those barriers, allowing Suzu to use composite magic.
    The following are the abilities enchanted in the fans by Hajime.
    • Blazing Hallowed Ground - a composite spell that combines fire magic and barrier magic. It creates a superheated zone inside the barrier.

    • Hallowed Ground -Reversal - a composite spell that combines restoration and barrier magic. It uses fragments of destroyed barriers to restore the previously destroyed barriers.
  • Treasure Trove - is a ring-shaped artifact that had small one centimeter ruby set in its center. The ruby was actually an artificially created dimensional space where things could be stored.
  • Aerodynamic-Enchanted Boots - they allow Suzu to walk mid-air.
  • Inaba - Inaba was a kick rabbit that witnessed Hajime's battle with the claw bear, which was the lord of the floor that it resided in. After seeing Hajime's victory over the claw bear, it drank the God Water that transformed Hajime and decided to train to become stronger so he could see Hajime again, who he viewed as the lord of the floor after defeating the Claw Bear. Suzu found him on the 19th floor of the Orcus Labyrinth when she was looking for creatures to tame with metamorphosis magic. Inaba had recognized the equipment on her as of Hajime's design and subsequently allowed himself to be transformed by her. He later becomes her trusted companion and always fights alongside, always supporting her and being strong enough to fight 3 Demon Rangers. He later helped Suzu fight Eri who possessed the powers of a Apostle, being able to overpower her with his kicking technique that was enhanced by Hajime's Artifacts.
