Hiroko Takashiro (高城 寛子 Takashiro Hiroko) is a major character in the original Bible Black game and its sequel Bible Black: The Infection. She also plays a major role in the anime adaptions Bible Black: La Noche de Walpurgis, its prequel Bible Black: Origins and sequel Bible Black: New Testament. Additionally, she is also featured in two scenes of Bible Black: Only.
During her student years she started her own witchcraft club with her classmates. The club gain considerable influence around the school after the girls find the Bible Black spell book. Takashiro's attempt to summon an actual demon to gain his power backfires, and her club's leadership is usurped by student council president Nami Kozono, forever changing Takashiro's opinion about occult magic.
Twelve years later, Takashiro becomes an art teacher and faculty advisor to the art club at the same school she attended herself. She is confronted by her past when the school nurse and witch Reika Kitami reveals her true identity. Along with her art student Taki Minase, Takashiro tries to stop the witch from exchanging souls with student Kurumi Imari.
Several years later, she leaves the school and lives a more secluded life as a nun. She again fights Kitami and her followers after the mysterious Jody Crowley revives the witches' soul inside Imari's body.
As a student Takashiro had a great interest in witchcraft, claiming the power of darkness can perform miracles. She studies it to learn the truth of history, since witchcraft has been part of life since ancient times. She occasionally plays games of tarot with her friends Rie and Saki at school.
Later she takes an interest in art and becomes an art instructor and faculty advisor for the Academy art club. She is very popular with both the boys and the girls, some of them having chosen to join art class just because of her.
Using the magic bookEdit
After student council president Nami Kozono tells her off for playing tarot after school, Takashiro and her friends Rie and Saki attempt to have their club recognized as an official extracurricular organization. Their bid is denied, and Takashiro decides to translate the magic book Rie discovered.
Though the girls can only make out a few pages at first, they decide to test the grimoire's power by casting a spell on Junko Mochida, the student council member who told them their bid was denied and scolded them. To their amazement, the spell causes Mochida to masturbate in front of assembly in the school's gymnasium.
Unsure if the book was really behind Mochida's incident, Takashiro tells her friends to keep their involvement a secret after Saki lets some of it slip to her classmates.
Their doubts about the book's validity are definitively taken away when the girls successfully help the unpopular student Hiratani win the heart of the lesbian Nami Kozono, who instantly falls in love and passionately has sex with him.
Soon after, Takashiro and her friends gain considerable influence around the school when both students and teachers buy their magic charms for hefty sums of money. Feared and powerful, the girls become seemingly unstoppable. Even Kozono approaches Takashiro and begs her to make Hiratani pay more attention to her. But instead of helping the council president, Takashiro dispels the original love charm she put her under.
Confronted by the powers of HellEdit
Feeling confident in herself and the book's powers, Takashiro soon plans to summon the Devil himself on Walpurgis Night in the hopes of obtaining godlike abilities. She allows Kozono to join her club, now called Rose Cross, amused by the fact the girl used to look down on their magical exploits. Kozono offers to arrange a required human sacrifice and uses her influence as council president to provide the club with a practice room: the school's basement.
The girls decide to first attempt to summon a lesser demon during a practice ritual by sacrificing a small puppy. The ritual horribly backfires and the virgin Takashiro is viciously raped by the summoned demon, causing her to slip in a coma for three days.
Her experience leads Takashiro to have an epiphany, realizing they are amateurs and should not be playing with dark powers they do not understand. She leaves the club and tries to warn her friends not to continue with the ritual, but they ignore her. Kozono, who has taken over as leader of the club, has Rie and Saki tie Takashiro up and lock her in a room. She manages to escape sometime later, only to find all her friends slaughtered and the Bible Black missing.
Return to school as a teacherEdit
Having learned of the dangers of toying with occult magic firsthand, Takashiro takes to studying white magic instead for the next twelve years, keeping her knowledge of magic well hidden. After graduating she continues to study the history of the Bible Black and eventually returns to the school to become an art instructor and faculty advisor for the art club. For years she guards the basement room, believing to be the only person who knows about what really happened there.However, Takashiro's demonic encounter during her youth has left a lasting psychological trauma. When she stumbles upon a picture of a demon in the school's library, a shadow creeps up to her, and the teacher starts feeling aroused as she flashbacks to the incident. She is assaulted in a toilet stall by the school's vice-principal, who has seemingly been possessed by the demon himself. Takashiro gives in to her cravings and willingly has sex with him in his office.
As a teacher, Takashiro's attractive looks make her quite popular among the students, particularly the boys. Some of her seniors even draw pornographic pictures of her on their reports. The feeling is somewhat mutual, as the professor fantasizes about her students having sex with her one by one while masturbating.
Victim of revengeEditAs strange events again start to happen around the Academy, Takashiro grows suspicious of school nurse Reika Kitami. She warns her art student Taki Minase to be cautious of her, and suspects him to be using primitive magic on his fellow students much like she did in her youth. Minase ignores her words and his mind is corrupted by Kitami. He assists in kidnapping Takashiro by allowing Kitami's other lackey Kaori Saeki to stun her.
Takashiro is taken to Saeki's apartment and horribly water tortured and raped repeatedly. She is forced by Kitami to reveal her history with Rose Cross and discovers that the nurse was the human sacrifice intended to be offered to the Devil twelve years ago.
Kitami drugs her with sexual stimulants and lets several of her art students have sex with her the following day in the art club room. However, Minase has a change of heart and manages to safely take her to his house afterwards. There, Takashiro rediscovers the Bible Black on his desk and finds out that Kitami made a temporary contract with the Devil in exchange for her soul.
When Minase returns home she explains her past and Kitami's intentions to him. They then have sex in order to subdue the still lingering effects of the stimulants given to her.
Stopping Kitami's dark ritualEditThe next day, Takashiro again persuades Minase into having sex. Soon after, she saves his life when he is stabbed by student Rika Shiraki as revenge for abusing her. She magically stuns the girl and heals Minase's wounds.
They make their way back home, and Takashiro convinces Minase to use the Bible Black to stop Kitami. They devise a plan to stop the nurse from exchanging bodies on Walpurgis Night with Minase's friend Kurumi Imari, whom she also kidnapped in order to trick the Devil into sparing her soul. In a race against time they research the Forbidden Spell found in the grimoire.
Just before midnight they make their way to the school to disrupt Kitami's ceremony. Takashiro uses a spell to break through the magic barrier erected by Kitami around the building and swiftly knocks out Saeki and her friends Jun and Maki when they attempt to block their way to the basement.
Minase sneaks into the basement alone wearing a disguise, and Takashiro enters moments later to urge him to proceed with the spell after he is distracted by visions cast by Kitami, who is about to perform the exchange ritual. Takashiro is again grabbed by Kitami's followers and raped, but Minase successfully recites the spell, killing Kitami's body and ending the ritual.
Later, life around the Academy seemingly returns to normal, but Takashiro eventually discovers that Kitami's soul has managed to live on inside Imari. She finds a way to seal the nurse inside and consequently makes Imari forget about the events that transpired on Walpurgis Night.
Path to light and the return of evilEdit
Takashiro later embarks on a quest for magic purity, visiting a monastery in the mountains. She commits herself to a more secluded lifestyle as a white-robed nun. She moves to a traditional wooden townhouse years later.[more information needed, requires Japanese to English translator]
One day, Takashiro's former student Shiraki, now a substitute teacher, pays her a visit and they reminisce about their time at school, discussing the fate of Imari and Kitami. Soon after, Takashiro has a powerful premonition, realizing the seal around Kitami has broken.
In the gamesEdit
Personality and traitsEdit
As a young student and leader of her Rose Cross witchcraft club, Takashiro is considerably more sinister and power hungry than later in life. She eagerly kills and sacrifices a puppy and expresses no hesitation at the idea of a human sacrifice. Her encounter with a demon radically changes her outlook, and her personality shifts to more docile and considerate. She also seems repentant of her actions, blaming herself for the deaths of her club members.
