[edit] Background

[edit] Pre-Despair

Not much is known about Celestia pre-despair. During free time interactions with Celestia, Makoto learns that she regularly goes to a coffee shop to drink her favourite royal tea. She is also a professional gambler, who has not heard the word "lose" in a long time.

[edit] Finding Mondo Owada guilty

Celestia proved to be key into finding Mondo guilty of Chihiro's murder. Celestia met the deceased in the storage room, prior to his death. Celestia noticed Fujisaki's blue jersey partially in his bag, which he then stuffs back inside before going off in to the gymnasium in a hurry. This later proves to be a major factor in finding out who murdered Chihiro.

[edit] Death

Celestia's Death

In order to allow them to both escape and bypass the rule that only the "Blackened" can graduate, she formulated the plan in which Hifumi was to murder Kiyotaka Ishimaru and she murder someone else. In order to do this she convinced Hifumi that Kiyotaka had stolen Alter Ego and was planning to murder Hifumi and keep her all to himself, she also stated that Kiyotaka said some sexually explicit things to Celestia to add fuel to Hifumi's fire. Once Kiyotaka had been murdered by Hifumi, Celestia murdered him to ensure the plan remained a secret.

In order to cover her tracks, she and Hifumi (before Hifumi's murder) framed Yasuhiro Hagakure by knocking him out and placing him in a "Robot Justice" suit. Celestia then fakes Hifumi's death by making Hifumi to pretend to die, tricking the other students to look for the individual in the Robot Justice suit. During this time, Hifumi moved Kiyotaka's body to the Art room, where Celestia turned against Hifumi and killed him.

During the class trial, Celestia orders the other students into declaring Yasuhiro as the guilty party, but to no avail. Even though the Robot Justice suit did indeed fit Yasuhiro, the team demonstrated that it would be very difficult for Yasuhiro to bend when in the suit, therefore he found not pick up a body to move it. However, Celestia still insisted that Yasuhiro was the culprit, using the fact that Hifumi said the word "Yasuhiro" before his death. Makoto picked up on this and asked Celestia for her real name, since she had only referred to herself as "Celestia" (or "Celeste" in the European version). She refused and mentioned that it would not aid the investigation. Makoto was adamant and demanded to see her e-student book. After a few prods to do so, she did, revealing her name as "Taeko Yasuhiro".

Celestia's Dream

She mentions that the reason as to why she killed in the academy was to get her hands on the money. Even though she was the Ultimate Gambler, Celestia had a dream to live in a mansion with people working for her. She did not have enough money in order to make this dream become a reality, despite being the ultimate gambler, she had fell on hard times. She then admitted to her crimes and she was found guilty and sent to death in the The Burning of the Versailles Witch execution.
