Fujishiro Nageki
Saint Pigeonation Academy
Year 1?/mourning dove
A ghost who lives in the library

[according to Wikipedia.ja, the compound used, “shibakurei,” refers to someone who doesn’t realize they’ve died or cannot accept their own death. Mysteriously it also links to the English article on residual haunting: basically, it’s implying that he died violently but didn’t realize it. Also, this would not fit in a text box.]
