Madoka Tsukagoshi (塚越 円 Tsukagoshi Madoka) is SHSL Kibougamine Fangirl at the rebuilt Kibougamine Academy. She is best known for for her stalking ability, and constant involvement in major events.
Madoka was born with maroon-coloured hair, which she has been dying a dark shade of pink since middle school. She has fair skin, purple eyes and is short for her age.
In NG and Reunion verses, Madoka's hair has been cut short, and she wears business-professional outfits, as opposed to the skirts and dresses she wore as a teenager.
Although she presents herself as very careless and outgoing, Madoka can be very cold and calculating, especially when it comes to gathering information or avoiding her own mistakes.
Madoka seems to have a tendency to hold grudges, often greatly offended when put in physical danger and even going so far as to wish harm upon people she doesn't like.
Despite the darker sides of her personality, Madoka is almost always willing to give out information in order to strengthen her bonds with people. She desires normal relationships, but also struggles to maintain them due to constantly crossing boundaries.
Madoka has a habit of developing deep obsessions with fantastical things.
From childhood, Madoka had difficulties associating with her peers. She was often distracted, living in fantasy, and tended to see the world differently to the other children her age. Because of this, and the association her peer's parents had with Madoka's mother, she found it very difficult to make friends throughout her childhood, and often 'tried too hard' to make friends, pushing the other children away from her with her enthusiasm.
Sometime prior to her early school life, Madoka met Katsuo Harada with her father, Ryuuji. The two immediately bonded over their technological gifts, and seeing Madoka make a friend, prompted Ryuuji to ask Katsuo to 'take care' of his daughter; a burden which would see Katsuo through for many years.
When Madoka was seven, she invited 105 people from her school to her birthday party, which nobody showed up to. Seeing her distraught, her parents decided to celebrate her birthday with her. She was able to show her family the toy robot she'd constructed on her own, and was very proud of it. This would later become one of Madoka's most treasured memories.
Soon after this, Madoka was in and out of therapy after putting glass shards in her classmate's pencil case, after a joking suggestion from her father, Ryuji Tsukagoshi, when asking him how to deal with bullies. Madoka continued struggle with friendships, but quickly developed a higher interest in technology, due to her growing hyperfixation; a long-running spy manga she read as a child.
At the age of nine, Madoka was already communicating online with strangers, and this lead to an incident where she was kidnapped by an individual known as Hamadachi, who had groomed her through an online game. Madoka was kept tied up in his barn after being brutally assaulted by Hamadachi, left to die on the freezing cold floor, hearing nothing but the sounds of the animals- this triggering in her an intense fear of them. Her family was quick to initiate a search, and she was found, with the perpetrator promptly arrested.
Following this incident, Madoka's younger brother, Yuutaro, became extremely attached to her- refusing to sleep in his own room and constantly wanting to be around for her. This was numbed down shortly after their mother constructed a small laptop containing AI copies of herself, Ryuuji and Madoka for him to talk to in his room.
During the Tragedy, Madoka became very sick. In an attempt to help Madoka, her cousin, Shuu Tsukagoshi found his mother's alcohol stash and gave it to her under the belief that it was 'special medicine'. Madoka, intoxicated and suffering from hallucinations, ended up shooting her parents and younger brother, under the impression that they were intruders. This left Madoka's aunt, Ikue Tsukagoshi heartbroken, yet unaware that it had actually been Madoka who had pulled the trigger on their family.
During the Recovery Period, Madoka lived with both Ikue and Shuu, although the family seemed to be broken. Madoka and Shuu from guilt, and Ikue from losing her loved ones. Madoka seemed to change in personality, often dry, sarcastic and bitter toward others in her life. This attitude only lasted for a short period of time, and half way into middle school, Madoka developed an obsession with Kibougamine Academy.
Prior to attending Kibougamine herself, Madoka attended a school for the technologically gifted, alongside Shuu, where the students were trained in information technology, as well as many other areas in technology.
Her attitude brightened up, although she was badly bullied by her peers due to her obsessions. This had a negative effect on Madoka, as her self-hatred only grew. Pushing past it, she started to lash back at the bullies aggressively with revenge tactics. Disgusted with herself, Madoka cut her hair and varied her attitude until she was completely different.
She began acting out, doing crazy things for attention, even going so far as to encourage sexual exploitation directed at herself. Not long after jumping into these habits, Madoka met Keiji Handsome and became sexually involved with him. This she gave up after becoming pregnant with his baby at just fourteen, and having to abort the child.
Despite Madoka being crushed by this, she resolved not to tell Keiji about this, but merely cut off their relationships. Keiji, triggered by her sudden abandonment, used his talent to force her to sleep with him in order to make her stay.
Madoka attended Kibougamine after being scouted for her intense enthusiasm involving the school.
Yuutaro was Madoka's younger brother. Despite Madoka having difficulty with her peers, she was able to establish a firm and caring relationship him. Yuutaro seemed to care and admire her above anybody else in the world. From infancy, he would cling to Madoka, often play with her and even refuse to sleep anywhere else but in a room with her. Madoka cared about him, and would often dedicate special time to entertaining him.
During the Tragedy, Madoka shot and killed Yuutaro while hallucinating. She feels immense guilt over his death.
