A good kid. Duster thought he could be immature at times, but he appreciated his creativity and ease when talking to others. He got especially concerned when he found out Dave was used to dead bodies and as he lost people dear to him, especially Tucker, Wash and Meridiana. Duster wants to keep an eye on him now that they're free.
Duster saw her as a mother figure from day one. Such a kind and adorable person who kept busy keeping other's hopes up and looking after them. She even reached out to Duster and asked him about his childhood, though he didn't feel comfortable sharing too much when he was alive. Looking back, he regrets it. From now on, he promises to talk to others about his problems. It's what they told him during his trial.
A young girl who's always concerned about others but so hard on herself. Another teenager Duster is worried about, but she's a brave and smart girl. She's got a bright future waiting for her.
He was patient with Duster, and Duster thought he was a great guy his age he could talk to. With his memories gone, he believed Ryuunosuke was one of his first real friends. His behavior at Duster's trial casted some doubt on that, and with the reveal that he's a serial killer, Ryuunosuke better stay away from him. And the kids.
Didn't talk to him much when alive, but seemed like a nice guy who looked after Dave. Tucker has no hard feelings towards Duster regarding his murder, which he doesn't understand. They did some wild dancing together at their last ghost party, so that was fun. But Duster's tastes are less...explicit than his.
A "hermit" (a not-human with special powers, or something. Like Duster is a thief whose skills revolved around ninja-like movements and burglary.) He was curious as to her fighting style, but she did turn out to be a harsh person after she got into a heated argument at the third trial, and that caused Duster to be a bit wary of her. Now alive, he wants to keep on asking her about her abilities.
A friendly, cheerful boy. It's funny how Ryoji talked on and on about history when Duster couldn't remember much of Tazmily's. Then he remembered that Tazmily had no real history. Others have mentioned that Ryoji has some emotional baggage to deal with, so another teenager to worry about!
A serious boy, whose Pokémon Duster was curious about. He regretted not getting to know him better when alive, but then he defended Tsukiyama of all people. Silver needs help after that mess of his death, but Duster doesn't want to talk to someone who cares that much about him.

REVIVED AND HEALED
♦♦♦. Duster was initially intimidated by him, being a serious teacher who disliked "idiots", and there were plenty of others he could hang with instead. His murders was despicable, but there was an ounce of sympathy in his motive, which was explored more in deadland. Duster wants to help him become a better person and learn about the books he reads and...he really cares about him? Rufioh called them "moirails", so that's a thing.
She was so closed-off, and Duster wasn't able to reach out to her in time, which he really regrets. But she's doing alright now, and he's happy for her and her girlfriend.
SHSL REPAIR GIRL
LITTLE SISTER. Duster cared for her more than anyone else, all because she was willing to spend time with him and learn how to fight. He hopes she becomes stronger and happy in life. When he died, he worried the most about her, as she was torn up over his execution, and the thought that she could get out alive kept him going through the weeks. He's happy she has a family back home to look after her, but he's going to be a big brother to her nonetheless.
A fragile, elegant girl that Duster didn't know too well, but from what he heard, she didn't deserve to be manipulated by Tsukiyama. Her breakdown over her own death cemented his opinion on the ghoul, and Duster will not let her be hurt again.
SHSL LOUNGE SINGER
YOU ARE MY NEW DAD. A good father figure, who Duster loved and looked up to. Harvey encouraged his talents and took care of him, alive and dead, and his death hit Duster especially hard. Duster's never had a relationship like this with an older adult, and he's taking full advantage of having a father who can support him.
A (kind of airheaded) soldier that looked after Dave. Duster understood his diligence in training, and he admires his bravery.
A real hero. Maya is the biggest reason why the ghosts were able to leave, spearheading the project to contact the living. Duster admires her belief that things will turn out right and sees her as a natural leader. She's also really cute, and if he wasn't already taken (maybe? depends on the state of his world), he'd tell her that.
SHSL SPACE PILOT
A trustworthy man with an authoritative presence. Duster saw him more as a superior than a father, but according to the teenagers, he's a kind man.
Pianist played by a bassist. Duster's a bassist played by a pianist. Fuck this guy in particular. Duster had an unhealthy crush on him since Day 1 all because Tsukiyama called him "interesting". Is that all it really takes? He knows better now that some people can be secretly dangerous, and he just wants to avoid him forever.
The first two weeks, he wouldn't leave Duster alone, ordering him around and calling him a moron, but Duster was used to that sort of treatment. He felt guilty for thinking badly of him when Wario died, but after murderhotel, he's okay with that. Still a jerk that he should avoid, but he's not going to let anyone else walk all over him again!
Duster bonded with Rufioh when they met up in deadland, having both dealt with the destruction of their home worlds. He sees him as a younger cousin, giving advice and supporting the poor kid as he deals with life. In return, Rufioh explains how troll romance works and provides pale relationship advice.
