Chihiro Komiya (小宮 千尋) is an elementary school student who begins working as a maid at his wealthy uncle's home after his mother dies. He likes things to be clean. He's also a good cook.
Chihiro has long, loose brown hair and golden eyes. When people from his mother's side of the family see him, they think he is the spitting image of his mother. Chihiro is of average build for a fifth grader, however he is sometimes mistaken for a girl due to his appearance.He wears a frilly uniform made by his uncle, Madoka Taketori. Madoka loves girl's clothes with frills.
Komiya (小宮) Ko (小) means small and Miya (宮) means beautiful night.
Chihiro (千尋) means "thousand fathoms".
Chiyo Komiya: Chihiro's mother. The two lived together by themselves before she died due to overworking herself. She is depicted as a caring mother who worked hard to take care of Chihiro. It is also shown in his memory that she liked to keep things from when Chihiro was smaller like the note from the first time Chihiro went shopping or his first drawing of her, which he commented as horrible. Though she was mostly not home due to work, also the reason why Chihiro took a long time to let the reality of her death really sink in and affected him, the two apparently got along well.
Chihiro's father: Chihiro doesn't have much memories of his father as his father had died while Chihiro was still very small. Chiyo showed him pictures though they were blurry, since she took them secretly, or his father shielded his face from the camera so he couldn't see his father's face.
Madoka Takatori: Chihiro's uncle, Madoka takes Chihiro in after his mother dies, as part of a promise he made with Chihiro's mother, his older sister. Although Chihiro is strict with Madoka, he seems to truly care about him.
Yuji Hino: Best friends with Chihiro, the middle of six children in the Hino family and is concerned about Chihiro since his mother's death, proving to be a loyal friend. With his silver hair, dark eyes, and love of horror films, he is good friends with Madoka (his family having worked as Madoka's gardeners for years).
- In the Drama CD, he is voiced by Houko Kuwashima.
- During the anime, chihiro's neck wear changes from a yellow tie to a thin blue ribbon. This goes back and fourth through out the show.
