Yuri (ユリ) is a main character of Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!. She is the second member to join the newly formed Literature Club.

Appearance[]

Yuri has waist length dark purple hair and light purple eyes and wears a purple barrette on the right side of her head, positioned upon her right prominent strand of hair beside her bangs.

She wears the standard issue female school uniform consisting of a warm gray blazer fully buttoned and untucked, brown sweater vest, white shirt slightly unbuttoned at the collar and tucked, red ribbon, dark blue pleated skirt, white knee-high socks, and white uwabaki slippers with sky blue tips.

Yuri is the tallest female character in the game, standing at 5' 5", or 165 cm, in the game's concept stage, according to Dan Salvato. She is also the most physically developed, adding to her traits of maturity and insecurity.

Personality[]

Yuri is presented as a shy and quiet introvert, as she was reading by herself in an empty classroom when Monika first invited her to the newly-formed Literature Club in Trust. When she joins the literature club in Understanding, she is shown to suddenly switch from shy to direct when talking about her interests (books), which catches Monika and Sayori off-guard. Yuri later misinterprets Sayori's attempts to follow her fantasy novel and make her happy as pity on Sayori's part, and reveals that she often struggles socializing with people, finding it hard to accept their gratitude. After gaining a mutual understanding with Sayori, Yuri asks her to teach her poetry.

When Natsuki joins the club, Yuri sides with Monika over her concerns about the new member, and later advises Sayori on how to approach Natsuki. In Reflection, the differences between Yuri and Natsuki come to a head as they get into an argument that, despite Monika trying to mediate it, ends with Natsuki believing Yuri sees her and her interests as immature. The day after the argument, Monika finds Yuri sitting at a disused stairwell and suggests Yuri to write a letter to Natsuki if she prefers to write than to talk. Monika assists Yuri with writing the latter and delivers it to Natsuki on Yuri's behalf.

In the final side story Self-Love, Natsuki and Yuri interact over several days at Yuri's spot at the stairwell. Yuri helps Natsuki when she goes through a panic attack over cutting off her former friends, grounding her and offering her comfort. She tells Natsuki that "From now on you'll never have to do anything alone again" in a show of kindness.
