Kaede Makidera is a student at Homurahara Academy. Kaede is a beautiful but loud and obnoxious sprinter. She is energetic, likes competition, and tries to lead the members of their trio. She can't really stand failures. She is not academically brilliant and has poor marks at school. In the Fate/school life spinoff, she is depicted as receiving high marks only in History class. She is a friend of Rin Tohsaka and she's scheming at making her as her best friend, and she sees Ayako Mitsuzuri as a rival. Her hobby is collecting wind chimes, and she loves working with glass. Perhaps because her tastes intersect with Rin's on that point, the two often go around visiting antique shops together on their days off and the two often go window-shopping together.
