A high-maintenance spouseEdit
- Main article: The Stolen Turnabout
Prior to meeting her husband, Desirée was attacked by two robbers in her former workplace. However, Ron DeLite, who was working as a security guard at the time, saved her from the two criminals by yelling at them so loudly that they ran off terrified. She instantly fell in love with him and soon enough the two were wed. However, Ron's income alone couldn't support Desirée's shopping habits, so he tried to steal and disclose private information regarding his employer KB Security, but was caught and fired.
Ron couldn't tell Desirée about his crime due to her hatred of criminals, nor could he tell her about losing his job due to shame. Desperate to maintain her lifestyle in fear of her leaving him, he secretly (due to his wife's aforementioned hatred) took on the alias of the "master thief" known as "Mask☆DeMasque". Ron, as Mask☆DeMasque, initially only stole one precious object, but his true identity was figured out by an anonymous individual who sent him plans for more heists and blackmailed him with his true identity to steal again and again.
Despite the increasing amount of Mask☆DeMasque memorabilia in their apartment flat on 3rd floor of Palazzo Pelpepe, Desirée remained in denial about Ron's secret identity, putting it down to her husband simply being DeMasque's "biggest fan". Even after a confession straight from Ron's mouth, Desirée thought he was just being "delusional", and believed that he was earning the money for her to continue her shopaholic lifestyle from his job at KB Security.
Ron then became a suspect in the murder of his former boss at KB Security, Kane Bullard. During the time of the murder, Desirée was being stopped for speeding on her motorcycle.
Desirée has a bad habit of overspending while shopping. Out of love, her husband did whatever was necessary to keep this habit going. After getting fired from his security job, a desperate Ron became "Mask☆DeMasque". Desirée also has a strong hatred for criminals due to her kidnapping, which made it difficult for Ron to admit what he was doing for her. She is generally friendly and likes to refer to Wright as "Nicky Boy", causing him to blush and Pearl Fey to slap him.
She is a major thrill seeker who enjoys taking risks and putting her "life on the line". Thus, she is happiest when her motorcycle is at full throttle. Both she and her husband share a fascination with ancient artifacts.
- The Japanese surname "Amasugi" (天杉) comes from the word "amasugiru", which means "too sweet".
- "Desirée" comes from the French word for "desired".
- "DeLite" is a play on the word "delight".
- As a result of the above two meanings, Desirée's full name basically reads as "Desire Delight"; likely a reference to her extravagant lifestyle.
- The word "plaisir" in the French localization's surname "Duplaisir" means "pleasure". When directly translated it means "of pleasure".
- If her profile is selected when asked who framed Ron DeLite for Bullard's murder, a unique conversation is triggered explaining why she isn't the murderer. This is in contrast with any other wrong choice for the culprit, which results in a more generic response.
- She is referred to as Ms. DeLite (i.e., the honorific used as a default form of address for women regardless of their marital status), rather than Mrs. DeLite.
