Yuri, like all teenagers admitted to the school, is a student who is to undergo the curriculum designed to help them move on from regrets in their life.
However, her past causes her to turn against the school, and this starts her founding of the Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife War Front).
She is very intelligent and able to understand situations and think on her feet.
However, she can be somewhat scatterbrained at times, as she once involved newly-recruited Yuzuru Otonashi in a conference on whether the name of their club is to be changed.
Her failure to save her siblings became her inspiration to incite a rebellion against the "higher being" who looks after the afterlife (who she assumes is God) and those who work for Him.Despite being the leader, Yuri gives full respect to her other members as well.This is seen when Yuri calls Iwasawa and Shiina with "-san" at the end of their names, acknowledging their strengths and capabilities.They lived with their parents in a middle-class residence, and were described as being very well off in life.When their parents left the house one day for personal business, a group of robbers broke in and attempted to rob the house.Also, she is not afraid to make necessary sacrifices, usually involving her subordinates' deaths since she is fully aware that they will recover from being "dead." Despite this, she feels responsible for the lives of her subordinates and is badly affected by their loss. Similar to how the anime stress on Angel loves for Mapo Tofu, in Heaven's Door and the 4-koma, it is heavily stressed that Yuri HATES nattō (even in her child days).Yuri is the oldest of four siblings, with two younger sisters and one younger brother.Indicating she could have been in this afterlife for over 40 years because she is quite young.Yuri possesses the traits of a charismatic leader, as her determination and her ability to stay calm even in difficult situations always earns her the respect of the rest of the SSS at the end of the day.Yuri Nakamura (仲村 ゆり, Nakamura Yuri) is the founder and leader of the Afterlife-based school organization Afterlife War Front. After she founded the SSS, she issues a different uniform to its members including herself, with features similar to a typical sailor fuku uniform.She leads the campaign of a number of students who fight against God, whom they blame for their cruel fates. The uniform has a blue collar, skirt and a dark pink ribbon for girls.
