Akane Segawa (瀬川 茜 Segawa Akane ) is one of the main characters of the Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? series. Akane is a member of the Alley Cats guild. She despises otakus, but in reality, she is one as well. Her in-game name is Schwein (シュヴァイン Shuvain ), which means pig in German.
Akane is a beautiful otaku teenage girl with straight dirty blonde hair which she has tied into twin tails with green ribbons. She has orange eyes and is usually depicted in her school uniform.
In the game, Akane (Schwein) has spiky, short orange hair and green eyes. He usually wears armor and carries a two handed sword.
In real life, Akane appears somewhat cold and rude towards nearly anyone, mainly Hideki due to his open otaku lifestyle. However deep down Akane is a major closet otaku who loves playing video games just as much as her in-game friends. Akane is very sensitive about her secret life as a gamer and would freak out and become depressed when people accidentally reveal her secret or end up knowing it. Despite her hostile attitude, Akane is revealed to care a lot about her friends and genuinely wants to help Ako to deal with her social problems.
In the game Akane's personality would differ from the real one, becoming braver, cockier as she would often say "ore-sama/my bad self" or other things to show off self-respect.
Not much is known about Akane's past, but she did reveal that during the beginning of high school she heard about online games and started to try it out. Soon Akane became addicted playing video games, but kept it hidden among her friends as Akane was ashamed of her otaku life-style.
In the game, Akane is a male and on level 92. Her occupation is a Sword Dancer and her max HP is 16921.
