Nana Hiiragi (柊, Hīragi Nana) is the main protagonist of Talentless Nana. She is an antiheroine who was tasked with stopping the Talented from fostering their abilities by making sure they never leave the secluded island, the main setting of the story. Nana has bubblegum pink hair with white tips, worn in twin ponytails held together with two white daisy flower hair ties, and teal-colored eyes. She wears a pink and white sailor outfit. When she shows her true colors, her eyes turn black (red in the anime) and her face becomes emotionless. Nana is friendly and air-headed. She is a kind girl, as she approached Nanao amicably despite the fact that the rest of the class bullied him. She even came to admire him for his extensive knowledge, and cheered him up to become the class representative. Nana is also quite talkative and curious, to the point of interrupting classes simply because she is chatting with Nanao. Nana's social skills are close to perfect. Despite the fact that according to her she was previously unable to make friends due to her talent, she manages to get along with all her classmates and earn everyone's trust.
Also, due to her talent, she tends to speak recklessly without reading the room, which is something that she herself affirms when she first introduces herself to the class. However, it is later revealed that this is a façade Nana uses to hide her true self, a meticulous killer. She shows no remorse pushing Nanao, with whom she had seemed to get along, off the seaside cliff. Throughout the story, we see her manipulative and cunning personality as she plans to murder all her classmates one by one while pretending she gets along with them well. Nana's ruthless attitude sometimes reaches extremes, as she is capable of blaming other people for the murders she committed. Another example is her acting insensitive to Yuuka by discarding the only object she had to remember the person she loved. In the same way, her levels of manipulation are extreme, as she has an influence on the whole class and is able to pretend to cry or act like the victim to rid herself of any suspicion. Nana is knowledgeable with many assassination techniques, such as how to make poison, and her talent for schemating is worthy of a genius. From the beginning, she managed to fool the entire class, thus making it almost impossible for them to declare her the murderer. Her ability to analyze and observe is rivaled only by Kyouya and Jin, as she deceived everyone by saying that she had the ability to read minds.
Nanao ended up forgetting it in the cafeteria, he probably had complicated feelings about it.
The truth is, she deduces each of the things she says through simple analysis. For example, she deduced that Nanao was a loner since she saw him pretend to read a book, which meant that he clearly cared how he was seen by his classmates. She assumed that he was a nice person after seeing the cat scratch on his neck, which meant that he had tried to help a cat; and that the watch he had with him did not fit with him. So it must be a gift from someone close, and because even though he cared. Nanao ended up forgetting it in the cafeteria, he probably had complicated feelings about it. She is able to anticipate the plans of her opponents, because she thinks things carefully, calculating the way of thinking of her opponent, and thinking of all the possibilities. Usually she usually deceives her opponents through plans that go beyond what they expected. As the story progresses, she often appears to feel stressed due to her "mission" and harbors a lot of doubt killing certain people, sometimes even questioning whether the Talented really are bad people. Her dedication to her mission begins to waver once Michiru dies to save her, and Nana is left to wonder if what she is doing is really the "right" thing. Nana is shown to struggle with morals, and figuring out what is right or wrong. Due to the fact that Nana was manipulated by Tsuruoka since childhood, she is probably not a bad person at heart, as she does not consider her actions to be "bad," but rather something done in order to "save" humanity. After finding out Tsuruoka manipulated her and used her to further his own goals, she feels full of remorse and regret for all of the victims she killed, and nearly tries to kill herself because of the guilt. Officially the main character of Talentless Nana, she is a chosen Talentless that was sent to The Island to exterminate all the Enemies of Humanity. She was chosen by the government to go and kill all the Enemies of Humanity. Her parents were killed by Enemies of Humanity and her hatred for them is boiling inside of her, allowing her to mercilessly assassinate Enemies.
And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious.
Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
After that, she was asked by Minu, Dom and Jay to accompany Mia because she will be more comfortable knowing Shelly was around. She said that she did stay because she was told to but in truth, she came because she is worried, when Mia fought back with her bullies and was slapped, Yuna and Shelly came to her rescue. Shelly even tripped the girl who slapped Mia. And told Yuna and her that it seems like there's nothing to be worried about anymore. Which made Mia smile. Nick (Grandfather) - it is seen that her grandfather is very loving and protective of her. He was ecstatic when she called to say that she was moving to Korea. When she went to her first day of school at Sunny High he was seen outside her classroom being protective and calling her 'his sweet Shelly.' He perceived her as an innocent child who had no interest in boys, that is until she met Jay. This might be because of when Shelly was a child, she said to her grandfather that she will never get married and live forever with him. Shelly's Dad - The only time that Shelly's dad was mentioned was when she asked him to take her bike apart and send it to her in Korea.
