The Staff Leader is a nameless antagonist in the Higurashi: When They Cry series. He is a rather minor character, but he did play a significant role in Miyo's upbringing.
Role in the series
He was the leader of the Orphanage that Miyo was sent to after her parents died in a bus accident. He would often dish out brutal punishments on the children whenever they disobeyed him or his staff. Miyo herself was a victim of most of these punishments.
After she had attempted to escape the Orphanage, the Staff Leader punished her by forcing her to lick up the entire outhouse with her tongue. He also used chickens to torture one of her friends, resulting in a very bloody scene.
It is unknown as to what happened to him after Miyo left the Orphanage.
