Introduction



Analogue: A Hate Story is a western visual novel created by Christine Love and released in early 2012. It's technically a sequel to the 2010 Digital: A Love Story, but the only connection is the setting - no characters persist between the two, and Analogue takes place hundreds of years in Digital's future, so no familiarity with the first game is necessary.

*Mute
The Mungunghwa's security AI. Blames *Hyun-ae for the deaths of the people on the ship.

Kim Jung-su
Father of Kim Yeong-seok. And old-fashioned man greatly concerned for the continued prosperity of the Kim family. Released the Pale Bride from stasis.

Kim Yeong-seok
Adopted son of Kim Jung-Su, after his father's death in 316. As the heir, he planned to become high magistrate and surpass his late father.
In Year 322, he succeeded in his ambition.

Kim Yeong-seok's wife
Name unknown. Had a very unfavorable first impression of the Pale Bride. Good at math - often helped her husband with matters of state.

Oh So-jin
Smith Sang-min's wife. Constantly struggled with getting her husband's attention and affections. Involved in some sort of huge scandal.
The scandal: She had an affair with her husband's concubine.

Ryu In-ho
Last Captain and Emperor of the Mugunghwa.

Ryu Jae-hwa
First wife of Captain Ryu. Was nervous at the prospect of her husband taking on a second wife.
Also Captain Ryu's sister.

Smith Kyung-sam
Only son of Dai-ho. Had no faith in the main Smith branch's future. Possibly a scoundrel.

Smith Sang-jung
Youngest son of Dai-hyun. Alcoholic, often cleaned up after the mistakes of his brothers. Eventually drank himself to death. *Mute was in love with him.

Smith Sang-hi
Older sister of Sang-min. Was widowed in 317.

Smith Sang-kyu
Middle son of Dai-hyun. A violent and abrasive man.

Smith Sang-min
Oldest son of Dai-hyun. A competent high magistrate, but with a tendency to let his affections wander. Was fired in Year 322 due to an excess of embarrassing scandals.

The Pale Bride
Second wife of Captain Ryu. Had been in cryo-stasis since an unknown time in the distant past, in hopes of finding a cure for an unknown disease. Very much an outsider to this culture.
Real name: Kim Hyun-ae.
