Satou Masuki is a third-year student at Shirayuki Private Academy, which she has attended ever since kindergarten.

She goes by the stage name MASKING (マスキング) and is the drummer for the band RAISE A SUILEN. Her longing to become such a drummer like her father made her start playing the drums.[2]


Masuki has short dyed blonde hair which barely reaches her shoulders, with asymmetrical fringe, as well as dark gold eyes.

In her initial outfit, Masuki wears a high-waisted wide leg pants with a cropped black top, over which she wears a deep red sukajan jacket with white stripes and pictures of Hanyo Usagi on the front. She wears black ballet flats without socks. Masuki does not wear any jewelry or accessories. Her style can be described as sukeban.

At school, she wears a classic blue sailor school uniform which has an ankle-length skirt.


Despite her sharp gaze and rough, delinquent-like appearance, Masuki likes cute things and is skilled at baking cakes. She is a straightforward but enthusiastic girl with a passionate heart and values her friendship with the other RAISE A SUILEN members. She can be quite playful with her bandmates, and especially likes teasing Chiyu. She loves cooking, as well as talking about it, and even works part-time at a ramen store called "Ramen Ginga".

She is a very skilled drummer, however, when she gets too immersed, she tends to fluster the other band members with her difficult improvisation performances, which made it difficult for her to join a band previously. Because of her violent and impulsive playstyle, she is called a mad dog (狂犬).

Masuki admires Maya a lot and even knew of her before she became Pastel*Palettes' drummer. She even tends to mimic Maya's speaking style when she speaks with her. Likewise, Maya also admires Masuki and calls her "King".

In BanG Dream! 3rd Season, as well as some of her in-game dialogues, it is mentioned that she is quite popular at school where she also acts in a more refined manner.
