There is only one customizable main character and you control the path of the story through your choices. Your Character is responsible for improving your section of campus (by buying Buildings & Decorations) and recruiting students to the school (to fill up Your Entourage).
Your Character is generally portrayed as a nice, helpful person, similar to that of Your Character in High School Story. Your Character is set up to be a very good friend to those who are friendly to them, but there are moments when you can choose to be less friendly to those who antagonize you.
Your Character can be placed in a student group of your choice out of Director, Movie Star, or Fashionista. There is not currently an option to switch types later on, but there may be in the future. Depending on which type you choose, quests might be slightly modified to fit that type.
You are able to customize Your Character's appearance, from whether they are male or female, to their skin and hair color, to what outfits they wear. You can only choose their gender once, at the beginning of the game, but the other options are always changeable.
Depending on whether you chose Director, Movie Star, or Fashionista for Your Character's type, you will have different, type-specific outfits available to you at the start of the game.
