PAFF is a main character in Cytus II, and is one of the 21 playable characters. Currently, PAFF has 34 songs, and maxes out at Lv. 90.

Description

A singer and commercial star who enjoys immense popularity; a 24 year old girl who seems born to be in the spotlight, whether it's the virtual world or the real world.

The number of fans she has is astonishing. She can hold virtual concerts non stop for a whole week and every single session will still be packed to the brim.

Her image and every single statement she makes is closely monitored by her agency. When the cameras and lights are not on, just what kind of person is she?

Personality

Main article: PAFF OS Logs

PAFF seems to be very enthusiastic as a singer, and has stated that singing is the greatest joy of her life. She loves to please people, and is passionate about her job, as she often holds virtual concerts.

However, there may be some hidden parts of her personality, as she is closely watched by her agency to keep up some sort of "image". Towards fans, she is polite and sweet, but distant, rarely ever communicating with them. This is a result of her anxiety.

Behind the cameras, PAFF is quite shy and introverted due to the fact that she has memory loss. Even near her sister Helena, she acts calm and reserved, never complaining or protesting against anything. However, this causes her to be shut-off, too, barely speaking about her own wishes. In truth, PAFF only wants to regain her memories and find out who she was in the past.

Trivia

  • The theme of PAFF was arranged by SIHanatsuka.
  • PAFF is voiced by Sumire Uesaka (上坂すみれ).
  • PAFF, along with NEKOΦωΦ, Nora and Ivy, appeared in the Cytus II x Sdorica Collaboration as a white orb character.
  • 5 of the 9 songs that have the lowest level for the Easy difficulty in the game (Lv.1) come from PAFF's collection.
  • Before the version 1.5 update, PAFF was the only character from the main 5 characters in Cytus II to not have a new song in newer updates.
  • According to a Q&A from Rayark's twitter, PAFF's height is 166 cm.
  • According to the Cytus II Art & Design Aesthetics book, PAFF's weight is 48 kilograms, and her blood type is O.
  • PAFF is not only the first character that most new players will encounter, but also the character with the highest possible level.
  • This may be due to her disappearance during the story.
  • PAFF's real name (Aroma White) was revealed in update 1.3 when her record company finally reported her disappearance.
  • In truth, PAFF resides in the body of Kaori Minamiya after her memories were transferred to said body. However, due to a malfunction, she possesses both Aroma and Kaori's memories.
    • The reason for the malfunction is that Noah White, Aroma's brother in law, had molested her in the past and as such he attempted to transfer all Aroma's memories except for that one in particular.
  • Due to a transport accident in the forbidden areas, the body of Kaori was exposed to The Ender Virus. This exposure when combined with the memory transfer augmented PAFF's body chemistry. As a result, she is one of the few people with the "Eye of Horus" an ability which allows the user to enter the OS Space at will. Nora, another user of the Eye of Horus, helped her control and hone her abilities.
  • Dependent on the choices of the player in the final battle, PAFF will either sacrifice her life to implement the virus or live.




Exploration System [OA]

  • The OA system for PAFF was added in Ver 3.8.
  • In the exploration area, the following can be observed for flavor text:
    1. Virtual event space.
    2. "Honeybees".
    3. Stage effects.
  • After viewing PAFF's level 90 cutscene, there is a small chance when viewing an object for flavor text that a different "corrupted" variation of the flavor text will appear
    • This "corrupted text" describes how the object being viewed fuels Vanessa's hatred for humanity, and following completion of the text the character background will briefly flash to the background shown in the "Bad Ending"
