Kikyou Motoki (桔梗 幹), also known as Motto, is one of Kotoko Aihara's classmates at nursing school. At first, Kotoko thought she was a girl due to her use of make up, but she was actually surprised when she found out she was a trans woman. She and Marina Shinagawa had admired and liked Naoki Irie when they found out about her and guessed that his wife was smart, beautiful, and talented. At first they thought his wife was Yuuko Matsumoto, seeing them together when they were following Naoki, and decides to give their love. Later, Naoki visits the nursing department and reminded Kotoko from his mother, in much total shock for everyone. Motto teases Kotoko about it and said she still had a chance making Kotoko a little pissed about it. She then later volunteered to recite the vow of the nightingale which was required for a woman. Kotoko was picked causing her to feel down. When Kotoko tries to memorize it, she appears and recites it perfectly, she asks why and Motto tells her that he wanted to wear the nuse's cap for a long time and was her dream. Kotoko gives her advice and during the ceremony, she wears the girl's outfit, which was a pink dress,instead of the blue suite required for men. After some persuasion she was able to wear the nurse's cap and became a graduated nurse with Marina, Tomoko, Keita and Kotoko (who was still clumsy and all).
