In chapter 1 of the manga, Nozomi and a few other students visited the man-eating house apartment, where she was attacked and injured by a group of shikabanes until she was saved by Makina. Since then, she developed a fascination with death.
In the anime adaptation, Nozomi becomes attracted to Ouri and desires to become a Shikabane Hime, so she could be with him forever. Later on episode 6 of season two, she would be manipulated by Toya because they both thought death was beautiful. Toya's power transforms Nozomi, causing her to become more direct and leads her to kill more students at her school until Ouri and Makina finally stopped them. However, they were unable to save Nozomi's life when Hizuchi interferes and easily kill the shikabane which is source of her happiness. With her last breath, she asked Ouri to make her into a Shikabane Hime. Her last wish goes unfulfilled as she didn't meet the requirements.
