Personality[edit | edit source]
As they are twins, Rom and Ram happen to look alike. But they also have many differences. Rom is the Oldest out of her and Ram.
Rom happens to resemble Blanc the most physically. She seems to be very quiet and possibly even shy in comparison, and doesn't say much. Rom sometimes seems upset or nervous by how Ram acts or what she does. But otherwise she lets Ram do as she pleases with her. The twins never leave their house without the other. When Rom cries over her older sister Blanc's kidnapping, Ram reluctantly follows along to help Nepgear and the others.
White Sister[edit | edit source]
As the white sisters (ホワイトシスター Howaitoshisutā ), Ram and Rom wear the exact same HDD outfit. Also like Blanc before them, they appear to be the youngest of the group.
When comparing them to Uni and Nepgear, the White Sisters cover more of their bodies and lack noticeable chest development. However, their chests are usually covered so it's unknown if there's much of a change or not.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
As a twin, she appears very similar to Ram with some noticeable differences. She has shoulder length brown hair and dark blue eyes. Rom usually has a neutral or frowning expression.
She wears a winter jacket over plain gray and white overall dress. Rom's jacket is pastel blue. The jacket itself has puffed sleeves and a frilled center part with many golden buttons, a collar with a big bow and six puffballs strategically placed. At the ends of the cuff is white fur lining and a big golden button. She wears a cap like Blanc's and have boots resembling their jackets. She also both wears shoulder purse. Rom's extra color is hot pink. She is 132 cm tall.
As a White Sister Rom's hair style changes to be shorter with messier/more bangs and side parts with a very long strand/part of hair over their shoulders, Rom's eyes turn bright pink.
She gains a white suit like outfit resembling a bathing suit with pink on the outer parts and neck, and long gloves with a thick pink line going down the center and at the top. The boot like parts are connected to the body suit by the outer bands with big pink pieces while the boot itself is all white except for the foot part.
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2/Re;Birth 2[edit | edit source]
Afterwards, Nepgear and her friends managed to rescue Rom and defeat Linda with the help of Ram in her HDD form. Upon the last minute, when they hear that Nepgear is the sister of Purple Heart they battle her, blaming her for the missing White Heart and upon losing they retreat.
In the English version, they believe that Nepgear is there to steal their shares and declare her an evil goddess.
Not long after that, Rom goes looking for a missing pen that she and Ram both have, bumping into Nepgear along the way. With Nepgear's help, Rom is able to find her missing pen, and starts to warm up to Nepgear as a result.

Rom represents the classic mage class, the White Mage. Her sister Ram represents the counterpart Black Mage. Both are typically characters that belong toward the back or sides of a battle formation, away from where the enemy can target them.
Though Rom is not the best for directly confronting the enemy, her arsenal of support spells make her a valuable addition to the party—especially when fighting powerful enemies, such as in the Colosseum. She can heal and buff allies. She greatly adds to the survivability of a team, and she is still competent when attacking. Though she can only boost two stats at once, unlike Neptune, whose Stat Multiplier skill can boost every stat but strength and vitality, her versatility makes her almost vital in certain situations.
The twins are characters you have to build their SP up early for them to be really useful early on. They can easily be replaced by other characters, so they are at best when partners. Pair Blanc with Rom, and then pair a character who has trouble doing combos and building SP with Ram. Both Ram or Rom can achieve special pair combos with their sister, Blanc whether separate or all together. All four sisters together can also execute a special move.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Ram and Rom are both based on a Nintendo DS. Because they are twins, it can be assumed that they resemble the DS' dual screen. The rectangles on their hats in their default outfit actually represent the screen icons from the DS logo.
- Rom's name comes from "Read Only Memory".
- It's been stated that Ram is the older sister, although it's unknown if this is real or just how she sees it. In the English version of the game Ram tells a suprised Nepgear that Rom is actually older. Rom however admits that Ram acts like the older sister. So it may be different in both versions.
- In the west the first twin out is considered the elder sibling, whereas in Japan the last out is the older sibling (based on a "first in last out" reasoning, for lack of better term). This may explain why the sister who is older changes between the English and Japanese versions.
- Just like White Heart, upon being defeated the first time they retreat.
- Another way to tell the twins apart, besides color, hair length, and expression is by direction. Most of Ram's things are on the left while Rom's will be on the right. From our view however, Ram is on the right hand, while Rom is on the left.
- In a recent popularity poll, Ram placed 18th while Rom oddly placed 10th, making Ram the least popular sister of the Hearts AND Goddesses.
- The twins are influenced by Nana and Popo from Ice Climbers based on the colors.
- In the game "Mugen Souls" the special Shampurus CPU Big Sis and CPU Little Sis are based off of Ram and Rom respectively.
- The fact that CPU Big Sis is based on Rom solidifies the fact that Rom is the older sister while Ram is younger sister since CPU Little sis is based on Ram.
- Rom's Voice Actor is Yui Ogura, strangely, she acts like Sharuru Cocott(Mugen Souls) too.
- In Re;Birth3, it is stated that Rom doesn't like hot baths.
- In the games, Rom & Ram have a white stripe on the bottom of their dress, but in the anime, they don't.
