Rin Tsuchimi is the main protagonist throughout the Shuffle! series.


As noted by Kaede Fuyou, Rin's main virtue is his kindness. The girls love him because of this. However, this also causes his greatest weakness, shown later in the series, his indecisiveness and goal to make everyone happy, which ends up hurting them instead. Rin shows minimal initiative when dealing with girls, but he develops feelings for both Lisianthus and Nerine quickly when they arrive and spends more and more time with them. With regards to Kaede, he thinks of her as a childhood friend only. When people comment that Kaede and him would make a good couple, Rin either waves it off or says that it is strange to think of it that way.
