Rum is a young girl with tan skin, short, curly dark hair, and dark gray down-turned eyes. She wears a maid dress reminiscent of the Victorian style, with dark sleeves and a white apron and skirt. She has two blue bows in her hair and one around her left index finger.

Before entering the House, she wore a white dress, white socks and black shoes, as well as two hairpins.

Personality

Rum is a very timid and lonely girl. Not only does she not kiss her master goodnight, but she also gave herself her own name. She's very insecure and has a habit of talking to her finger to calm herself down. In the past, she was surprisingly playful.

Early life

Shirley used to attend school in Mirrorside Village along with Patrick, Louise, and John. Judging by comments from the headmaster, she was a top student, but very shy and quiet. She didn't really interact with people and kept to herself.

On the day before selection, she stopped near the clothier's workshop. John noticed Shirley dropped her circus ticket and came to return it. She told him, she didn't want to attend she selection because of her fear of being a burden, but John reasured her and changed her mind about it.

The 4 of them went to the circus where they met a nameless orphan girl (Emilico). They decided to help her get into the selection with her using a fake name - "Kate". She stayed over at Shirley's house, and reassured her about going to the mansion, helping her bring a little piece of home with her in a form of a ribbon from her toy rabbit Rummy.

Next morning, John, Louise and Patrick came to Shirley's house, where they helped "Kate" get ready. While boys tried to style "Kate's" hair, Shirley helped her get dressed.

After selection, Shirley, along with others, was brainwashed via coffee and brought into the House, where she was approached by a morph.

Shirley is Rum's Shadow Master. Before the Debut, Rum had never interacted with her master, unable to give her a goodnight kiss. During the Debut, Shirley was unable to keep her human form, eventually returning into a Morph. After the Debut, Rum was demoted to a "Faceless Doll", except that Shirley didn't actually die. Rum lets Shirley enter her mouth when she is about to drink the "coffee" so that Rum would not get brainwashed. They can talk with each other through their hearts when Shirley transforms herself into a ribbon tied around Rum's finger.

Rummy

She talks to the bow on her finger as if its a real person. She claims it gives her courage. The bow originally comes from a doll her mother made. Since Rum couldn't bring the doll itself to the selection, Emilico suggested that she take the bow of the doll and tie it around Rum's finger.
