It is later revealed in Chapter 3 that the two appeared to be close friends in the past, due to Makoto Naegi finding a picture of the two, along with Mondo, hugging one another and smiling. Chihiro has also been shown to have looked up to Leon at some point, as in the Danganronpa 1.2 Reload Artbook, Chihiro positively mentions his high confidence and ambition.
