Ukyo (ウキョウ, Ukyō) is a famous photographer. He's Heroine's boyfriend from the real world.
Ukyo is a tall, slim young man with waist-length green hair and green eyes. His bangs fall freely over his face, down to his cheeks, and there is a long braid on Ukyo's right, held together using a white hairband. He typically has a solemn expression. However, when overcome with his more maddened and twisted personality, Ukyo develops dark lines under his eyes and he tends to grin very widely.
Over his head, he wears a black hat with a short brim. On the tip of the crown is a white streak. The band around the crown is patterned with black-and-white diamonds.
He wears a wrinkled, somewhat unbuttoned brown shirt with a long, black necktie loosely tied around the collar, of which there is a silver pin down the middle. Over this, Ukyo dons a long-sleeved, black jacket left open. On his right, near the shoulders, there are three square-shaped silver studs attached to his jacket. Likewise, on his jacket's left, there are also square-shaped silver studs running down vertically. Ukyo's entire left jacket sleeve is patterned with black-and-white diamonds and a similarly-designed patch of cloth is designed on his right side, below the collar, placed parallel to the three studs on the other end. On his patterned sleeve, there is a black cloth wrapped around his upper bicep. Around Ukyo's waist is a black skirt with a diagonal cut, leaving it somewhat short on its left. On the right, there are also three square-shaped silver studs pinned near the cloth's line. Over this, there is a long, cape-like cloth hanging over the back of his legs, styled with the longer end stretching diagonally towards the right. It is black with a lavender inner lining. Underneath it all, Ukyo wears tight black pants over heeled black shoes.
He has split personality disorder; one of his personalities is kind and caring, the other is somewhat crazy and menacing.
The kind and caring one is officially referred to as OmoteUkyo （表ウキョウ） "surface Ukyo" while his other dangerous self is referred to as UraUkyo （裏ウキョウ) "under Ukyo" or "other Ukyo". They differ quite greatly in terms of hobbies and likes and dislikes and especially in the way they think.
OmoteUkyo's personality is based more on emotion or the heart, while UraUkyo's personality is based on logic or the mind.
Ukyo can be a "crybaby" at times (or so he says himself), crying when he is feeling intensely emotional. However it is never without good reason. He cries only when he dreams that he has lost the heroine or in joy of having found his dear grandfather's mansion intact after 15 years.
Ukyo plays an important and supportive role for each route in the game. He appears to know Shin, Ikki, Kent, and Toma even though they never interact with him that much.
In this route, he was one of the victims during the Shinano incident and he re-visits with other victims to that same trip for three days to investigate. In the Good Ending, he disappears without a trace. In one of the bad endings, if the Heroine spends the night with either Ukyo or Sawa at the villa, UraUkyo kills her with a knife.
Spade's Route Edit
The next route, he meets the Heroine, and he list the heroine will go out with are Shin, Ikki, Toma, and Kent. Ukyo warns her that she should be careful that hangs around with. On August 18, Ukyo came to warn her again that he wants her to be extra cautious during the trip. Somehow he can sense danger waiting ahead of her, and she needs to be careful of people who "get along" with her. Ukyo doesn't care if she thinks he's a stalker or something for knowing her detailed schedule. He only wants her to survive, because he knows a certain someone thinks of her as a disturbance. Ukyo admits that he will put her in danger too if he stays too close, so he won't come to see her again from now on.
Ukyo is seen in this route after bumping into the Heroine again, but he tells her to hurry home, however his personality changes and he muses about how she is dating Kent this time. He goes on to say something very strange about how he was thinking of killing her. Ukyo returns back to his normal self and she should forget what happened, warning her again that she shouldn't walk alone at night anymore, then walks away. On August 27, Mine tells the Heroine and Kent about a man matching Ukyo's description falling to his death from an apartment rooftop.
Ukyo appears briefly as his other personality UraUkyo at Maid's Sheep cafe. He went to warn the heroine about Toma as Toma was not who he claims he is. Later on, the heroine escapes from Toma's house only to get lost and bump into UraUkyo on the road. He offers to help the heroine, but if the player accepts his help, it leads to a bad ending where he drowns her in the old shrine's well.
As he struggles with his dual personalities, Ukyo tries to keep the heroine safe from the Joker World. The world is attempting to kill her, as her fate was to die on August 25th, and UraUkyo tries to kill her himself in order to survive. But Ukyo stabs himself in the chest to save the Heroine, and Neil then reverses time to save Ukyo. Ukyo and the Heroine are returned to their original world, though Neil and Orion are punished for their actions and they become humans.
Though OmoteUkyo still does not trust his other self, UraUkyo reveals to the heroine that he does love the heroine as well and tells her as such in his usual menacing way. He didn't want to kill her now that there's no necessity to, so he won't harm her anymore. The heroine slowly comes to terms with him and accepts him, saying that Ukyo is Ukyo. It doesn't matter which side of him, she will still love him.
These events happen after the incident with the water balloons and Ikki's fan club. Heroine feels like someone is watching after her. Next day at the work heroine meets Rika's brother, who asks her, if she doesn't want to be his model. At this moment comes Ukyo and declares that she is already his model and he doesn't want to hand her over to anyone else. Couple days after the heroine gets kidnapped by Rika's brother, who is controlled by the world, which wants her dead. Fortunately, she's saved by Ukyo with Rika's and other's help.
Love: After Story
Ukyo asks heroine if she wants to be his model for a few pages for his photobook. She agrees and the go to the photo studio. Ukyo introduces heroine as his girlfriend, which turns into a gossip and eventually becames a rumor about their wedding. This rumor also reaches Meido no Hitsuji. When Ukyo came as usual the other guys, and the manager, start to question him about this rumor. Manager even points out, that Ukyo started to do more dangerous jobs, which must mean he's saving money for the heroine. Ukyo asks if it is that obvious and the manager promises him, that no one is going to ruin the surprise for the heroine. After that there are another events that lead to heroine getting close to the UraUkyo.
Three years after the heroine graduates from the university and Ukyo proposes to her, under the cherry tree he first tried to take photo of her and the sky. The official wedding ceremony is held with OmoteUkyo but there is another ceremony at night, which is held with UraUkyo and a second ring.
In the anime it's kind of similar where he supported the Heroine, except where the Heroine dated Kent in the world she was in. In the current world the Heroine is in, at first he greeted her, however his expression was almost to his "other self" and then he asked her if she was dating Toma in "this world", but makes him so happy before his personality changed and told her that she is going to be killed and she doesn't have much time left before he disappeared into the shadows where Toma discovers him. Later he is seen carrying the Heroine in his arms, while in his other personality maniacally and drops her at the top floor of the hospital. In the next world, his route is slightly similar. At the end, he killed himself and his body vanishes and take her were it all begins.

He is former boyfriend of the Heroine and loves her. Ever since Neil decided to help him grant his wish of seeing the heroine live past August 25th, he travelled to many different worlds, including Shin's, Toma's, Kent's and Ikki's worlds, to look out for her and warn her of danger.

"I have lost count of the number of times I've met you and lost you. But even now... I still love you." -Episode 11
- Due to OmoteUkyo's distrust of UraUkyo, during August he always slept outside in public areas which gives many the impression that he is homeless. This is so that if he ever wakes up violent, there would be people in the public to stop him. He actually hates sleeping outdoors.
- He sleeps really badly, sometimes accidentally rolling into ponds and rivers while sleeping.
- His house has no furniture because he travels so often, it was unnecessary and troublesome to buy furniture again and again. He uses his clothing trunk as a table.
- He has been to many countries. Chile, France, Japan... all together he's been travelling for 15 years since he was a child. He never stayed more than a few years in each country. As such, his studies suffered. Compared to the other four guys, he has terrible grades in school.
- He writes love poetry at the back of his diary. The love poetry, depending on how you look at it, is either touching or quite terrible. He has been teased for it in the drama CD Galactic Detective Ukyo (Part 1).
- He was also one of the males in the anime adaptation who didn't kiss the Heroine.
