Younger brother of Krichevskoy, and Laharl's uncle. Despite his muscular physique, he talks like a woman and doesn't have the guts to stand up to his own wife. He wears a radiantly colored pink mantle that if you see it once, you'll never forget it. Was once in love with Sakura, but he was turned down.
Tropes associated with Vesuvius:

- Pec Flex
- Real Men Wear Pink: Literally.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He is the opposite of his brother King Krichevskoy, who was sophisticated, righteous, respectful, intelligent, tasteful and refined. They look and dress very different as well; Krichevskoy was thin, tall and handsome, well and appropriately dressed and pure manservice.
- Sissy Villain
- Too Kinky to Torture: He shouts flirtatious and excited compliments when he is exposed to pain. It made Flonne so uncomfortable that she let him go once she caught him.

- Unusual Eyebrows: They are long and serve as his antennaes, the family trademark.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
- Your Cheating Heart: He fell for Sakura. Yasurl was not happy.
Yasurl takes the fun out of funbags.
Vesuvius’s wife, and Laharl's aunt. Back in the day, after Laharl’s mother died, she "took care" of him for a 100 years, and she abused him with her whip. Since then Laharl has hated women with sexy bodies. She is not fond of Laharl being the Overlord because he has human blood running through his veins

- Evil Red Head
- Evil Aunt
- Fantastic Racism/Politically Incorrect Villain: Believes that humans are lower than dirt and proceeds to abuse and "discipline" Laharl when he was younger because of him being half-human.
- Fetish: She really enjoys abusing people with her whip, even teenage girls.
- Hair Antennae: She has them, even though she is not directly related to Laharl.
- Horny Devils: Not confirmed, but her strong resemblance to the succubus class indicates it.

- Too Many Belts. She's got two on each glove.
- Torture Technician/Sadist: She really enjoy torturing people, usually with her whip, but she is not above using poison.
- The Vamp: When she can’t use her torture techniques to get what she want, she will use her body.

- Whip It Good: Her Weapon of Choice.
- Would Hurt a Child
Vesuvius and Yasurl's daughter and the younger twin sister of Kira. A rather young demon. Used to share her body with Kira, but he tried to take over her body, so she rejected him. She now “plays” with Laharl a lot, setting up traps to destroy him. She's a tad-bit crazy and is one of Laharl's problems.
Tropes associated with Shas:
Vesuvius and Yasurl’s son and the older twin brother of Shas. He's actually a ghost and can take control of Shas's body. Has a sick mind and tried to trick Flonne and Etna; and took hostage of Shas’s body to try to defeat Laharl. In the end, he was purified by Flonne and was sentenced to be a prinny for 100,000 years for assassination attempt to the Overlord. He is currently spending time in Celestia to repent.
Tropes associated with Kira:
Daughter of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth! and Jennifer. She can identify the difference between Shas and Kira (who is a ghost). She has been fond of Laharl ever since he saved her from Kira.
Tropes associated with Jane:
Flonne's younger sister. Rare kind of angel: she likes money more than love and is the exact opposite of Flonne. She ran away from home. She is fond of Laharl since he's the Overlord, and she is always arguing with Flonne. She came to the Netherworld as an exchange student, but went back to Celestia to become a woman worthy of Laharl.

- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Despite the fact that she quarrels with Flonne a lot, she still gets defensive of her whenever she gets hurt or cries.

- Black Sheep: From a family of Love Freaks, yet she believes in the power of money and rejects the concept of love.
- Blowing a Raspberry: Blows one at Flonne.
- Brutal Honesty: To just spit out rude remarks, and even marriage proposals, is Ozonne's speciality.
You're a weak and incompetent brat.
- Hair Decorations: The bandanna curled on the top of her head. Subverted as it is most likely not meant to make her look cuter, but more male-ish since its shape is reminiscent of hats some male angels wear, like her father.
- Expecting Someone Taller: When Ozonne met Laharl she was disappointed by his looks.
You're the Overlord? You're tinier than I thought.
- Friendless Background: Her "alternative" beliefs has most likely not earned her many friends, if any, in the world of Celestia. She grows quickly attached to Laharl, who might have been the first person she had ever met that have similar beliefs to that of her own.
- First Name Basis: Overlord Laharl gives Ozonne special permission to call him just Laharl because they immediately hit it off so well.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: She is the sister with her head on ground level.
- Good Is Not Nice: She is a good person with the best of intentions for the people angels have vowed to protect, yet really unpleasant to be around unless you share her perspective.
- Green Eyes
- Green-Eyed Monster: She is envious of Flonne in many ways. Flonne's status as a fallen angel is one of them.
- Grumpy Bear: Milder version, but not if compared to other Celestians.
- The Heretic: She propagates beliefs that go against Celestia's official dogma and is considered to be a heretic, but she is not excommunicated for it because Seraph Lamington wants to let heretics run free.
- I Am Not My Parents: She is ashamed of even being related to them.
I get goosebumps just from thinking that I'm related to them by blood.
- Informed Attribute: The narrator claims Ozonne is slightly better endowed than Flonne. The artwork does not back this up.
- Lady Looks Like a Dude: According to the narrator, the only thing that distinguishes her from completely resembling a male is the very very slight curve of her breasts.
- Love Freak: Completely inverted of course.
Love? What's the use for some insubstantial thing like that?
- Little Miss Snarker
- Little Sister Bully: Prone to verbally bully Flonne.
- Only in It for the Money: Money is the solution, not love.
Love isn't a solution to world hunger, is it? Just give them money.

- Tomboy: It is mentioned a lot of times that she acts like a guy.
- Tomboyish Sidetails
- Trans Nature: Ozonne wants to become a demon (more precisely a fallen angel) because she does not fit in with the other Celestians and so she can be with Laharl, in fact she thinks marrying Laharl will cause her to become a fallen angel.
- Tsundere: Towards Laharl. She's notably even harsher than usual when talking to Flonne.
- Tsurime Eyes: Laharl notes that her eyes are a bit like Flonne's eyes when she's angry, but even more vindictive.
- The Un Favourite: She seems to think she is, but it is unlikely as their parents seem like good people.
- Walking Celestian Ground: Does this for 400 years.
Terre and Elle
Flonne and Ozonne's parents. Father Terre is always refreshed, and mother Elle is always smiling. Even bigger "Warriors of Love" than Flonne. "LOVE" is their family motto. They made an oath with Laharl to make sure he stays friendly with Flonne forever.
Tropes associated with Terre and Elle:
A woman looking for rare and legendary swords. She's female, but she likes flat-chested girls. She wears a traditional Japanese Kimono. She carries a Masamune she created out of Caliburn, and she's a Master Swords-woman. She can't use magic but she can use a couple-hundred swords at the same time. She is on a journey to find both Caliburn and Excalibur, because she burns with passion as a 'Sword Maniac'. Her power is equal to that of Laharl, and her life is divided between several other archangels. She has once beaten Laharl. She was once an archangel working under Lamington, but since angels change between male and female depending on the situation, after becoming a Sword Master her male-side dominated her heart. But after she lost to Laharl, her female-side took over, she fell in love with Laharl and now she stays at the Overlord's castle.

- Beautiful Slave Girl: Becomes Sakura's.
- Bow And Dagger In Accord
