Histoire (イストワール, Isutowāru) is the personified form of the tome that contains the history of Gamindustri. She was created for the task of documenting the world's history within her pages.
Due to the Neptunia series being a game that revolves around different universes and dimensions, there are multiple Histoire's throughout the series, some of them with varying personalities.
While she does not make a physical appearance in this game, she is mentioned during Neptune's story when she sends a letter telling Neptune to team up with the other goddesses to increase her ability to get shares. Additionally, if the player does not choose Neptune to produce for, Histoire will become her producer instead as seen on the idol rankings.

Histoire is French for the word "history". This makes sense as Histoire was created by the original goddess with the task of documenting the history of Gamindustri.
- In a popularity poll, Histoire has placed 11th place.
- Unlike other characters in multiple dimensions, Histoire possesses a function to establish interdimensional connections to other versions of herself if needed.
- Histoire is one of the few characters who is re-designed in almost every main installment, having three designs in three different dimensions.
- The Super Dimension Histoire in her sealed form and the Hyper Dimension Histoire have a very mature voice. In constrast, the Super Dimension Histoire in her unsealed form and the Ultra Dimension Histoire have a higher, childlike voice and use emoticons when they speak.
- Like Arfoire, each version of Histoire is usually one of the oldest beings in their dimensions. Super Dimension Histoire has been around since the True Goddess' reign, while Hyper Dimension Histoire is born during the time of Planeptune's first CPU. The only exception is her Ultra Dimension version, who is only about a few decades old.
