Character Profiles:
Thumbelina

"Hitsuka" is a title given to aides of the leader in the Order of the Sun.
As the oldest of the three sisters, she was formerly a Blood Maiden working with Dawn, but after a certain incident at the Order of the Sun, she, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty defected and returned to the Order of the Sun where they came from.

After the incident, she's become suspicious and distrusts anyone outside her circle. She's so obsessed with keeping Snow White and Sleeping Beauty safe that it's begun to push them away.

Snow White

The second oldest of the three sisters serving the Order of the Sun as a Hitsuka.
Her kind and thoughtful nature makes her very approachable. It also makes her susceptible to ill will, and can drag her into troubles within the Order.

She respects Thumbelina but when she speaks out against her sister's mistrust, they end up fighting. Because of this, she has recently kept to herself in front of Thumbelina, not knowing what might set her sister off.

Sleeping Beauty

The youngest of the three sisters serving the Order of the Sun as a Hitsuka.
She is trying her best to become a good Hitsuka, and puts effort into helping her sisters. It seems she is also trying to do her best talking with others, but that doesn't seem to be faring very well.

Through her interactions with friends, she begins to think about who she really is. Sometimes, she tries too hard, which leads her to fawn over Otsuu and Little Mermaid.

Cinderella

A Blood Maiden who went missing years ago.
Some suspect she's the culprit behind a mysterious murder…

About Mary Skelter: Nightmares

Originally released for the PlayStation®Vita in September 2017, in Mary Skelter: Nightmares, powerful Nightmares actively stalk the player as you run through the dungeon—fight back with the dungeons' gimmicks or the Blood Maidens' abilities! Using a turn-based battle system, class changes, a blood-powered transformation system, and more, you and your party must solve the dungeons' mysteries and satisfy the prison's desires. In Mary Skelter 2, players can play the full revamp of Mary Skelter: Nightmares!

About Mary Skelter 2

Mary Skelter 2 evolves the core elements in Mary Skelter: Nightmares to bring to you a world teeming with twists and turns, topped with a new battle feature where the previous protagonist, Jack, is now a Nightmare. Players can use his Nightmare powers to defeat enemies, but at a maddening cost. Set in an alternate reality that includes familiar characters from the first installment, players must relive the torturous dungeon experiences and find ways to feed an almost insatiable prison. Will you be able to escape this prison and find sanctuary or will you fall into the clutches of madness?

Key Features

Don't Go Chasing Nightmares – When a white haze appears, a Nightmare is near! When spotted by a Nightmare, players enter “Chase Mode,” where the Nightmare will chase you through the Jail in real-time. Escape the Nightmare's clutches without the help of a mini-map by fleeing the white haze. When caught by a Nightmare's gaze, players enter battle where they will have to temporarily stun the Nightmare by attacking its weak points. Destroy the Jail's core and complete the dungeon by defeating the Nightmare!

Jack is a Dull Boy – Jack, the protagonist from Mary Skelter: Nightmares, has now turned into Nightmare Jack. He can still help you along the way, but be wary of his heart rate meter! Once his heart rate reaches a certain limit, he will turn into Ripper Jack, causing him to go berserk. When in Ripper Jack mode, Otsuu also risks going into Blood Skelter mode, which will cause her to go berserk too! With first game, Mary Skelter: Nightmares included, you can play through an alternate world where Jack is the main protagonist.

Build Your Own Blood Maiden – When leveling Blood Maidens, players can use CP points to level up skills and learn new ones. Surprise enemies by teaching party members to learn from 5 different jobs beyond their specialties, which can alter a Blood Maidens' abilities, the gear they can equip, and even their appearance. Mix-and-match skills based on your playing style!

Farm for Blood, Reap the Benefits – Use Blood Crystals to plant Blood Flowers, which can be harvested for additional items. Splash Blood Flowers with Marchen blood for an increased chance of getting rarer items when harvested. There are no two same items, so remember to keep harvesting and reap all the benefits!
