Azai Kyousuke / Samejima Kyousuke
The foster son of Azai Gonzou and the protagonist of G-Senjou no Maou
. He has a reputation in school for being a rich playboy, but in truth, he is sunk deep in debt under Azai Gonzou and is working to repay his family's debt.
The main heroine of the story. She transfers into Kyousuke's school early on. Haru is a strange young girl intent on catching "Maou". Also friends with Tokita Yuki.
Late in the story, it's revealed that her reason for capturing "Maou" is that "Maou" killed Usami's mother by bombing one of her mother's concerts
- Abhorrent Admirer: Kyousuke is absolutely repulsed whenever the possibility is mentioned that she might like him. This is because he knows who she isnote and while he's not going to try and get revenge on her, that doesn't mean he has to like her.
- Adorkable: She's incredibly socially awkward, which she attempts to cover up with a confident attitude. However, his dorkiness generally shines through even so, which makes up a lot of what we're supposed to find attractive about her. Plus, it's highly entertaining.
- Badass Adorable
- Batman Gambit: She pulls several ones during the hostage situations.
- Boobs of Steel: Largest bust of the heroines and the only one proficient in hand to hand combat. Granted, she's not good enough considering Maou's former line of work.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer
- Break the Cutie: Her backstory.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Very much so. She's very eccentric, but she's a very capable thinker.
- The Chessmaster: She's capable of matching wits with "Maou".
- Childhood Marriage Promise: With Kyousuke.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: When she's not being utterly serious, but even then her weird personality slips through.
- Elegant Classical Musician: Mentions early on that she plays the violin, but her personality doesn't quite fit. Though when she actually plays she seems to gain a lot of dignity and looks more beautiful than she does normally. Unfortunately, she's too traumatized to play while Maou is alive.
- Everything's Better with Penguins: She apparently thinks so.
- Forgotten Childhood Friend: To Kyousuke.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric.
- Hopeless Suitor: She manages to be a hopeless suitor and the main heroine at the same time. Namely, Kyousuke outright despises her for the first three fourths of the story and makes it pretty obvious that any hint that she likes him is disgusting. It takes some major upheavals to turn things around for her.
- Limited Wardrobe / School Uniforms are the New Black: Invoked. Claims she just loves her school uniform. Truth is that she's largely too poor to afford any other clothing.
- Love Redeems: Subverted. She's very happy to hook up with Kyousuke, but in the end she's still desperate for revenge and can't play the violin otherwise.
- New Transfer Student
- No Social Skills
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She doesn't quite hide her intelligence, but she pretends to be more easily flustered than she really is and may be playing up her strange attitude to some extent.
- Otaku: How she manages to be an otaku when she's dirt poor is anyone's guess.
- Parental Neglect: During the final arc of the story it's mentioned in a letter that her parents were rarely around to take care of her. The letter implies that this is largely responsible for how bad she is at socializing. When her father was murdered she was largely unconcerned since she rarely met him anyway and her only real friend was the killer.
- Perpetual Poverty
- Rapunzel Hair: She hasn't had a haircut in about a decade. Also, it's admitted that it's a real bitch to keep clean and even then it tends to look very messy. The hair extends all the way down to her thighs and is even longer than that in the epilogue. Considering how short her hair was when she met Kyousuke, she probably wouldn't put up with it if she knew that this is much longer than he meant when he said he liked girls with long hair.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: There is great emphasis on her eyes when she's being serious, and they also appear significantly brighter during those times.
- Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Repeatedly mistaken for one.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: Somehow, she gets away with the following unchallenged.
Eiichi: What about you, Usami-san? Is there someone that you love?
Usami: Me? Yes, there is.
Usami: Wait, what? Pssh, of course not. Definitely no. Well, you can be damn sure I'm not in love with Azai-san.
- Teen Genius
- Tomboy: As a kid.
- Unkempt Beauty
- Unusual Euphemism: Her "sweater puppies".
- You Killed My Mother!
The Class Representative
of Kyousuke's class. She's the eldest of five children and hails from a rather poor family. She's known for her gentle and kind nature.
Her route deals with the repercussions of Hiroaki's kidnapping
on both her and Kyousuke.
- Break the Cutie: It starts when Hiroaki is kidnapped.
- Class Representative
- Clingy Jealous Girl: In her own route.
- Corrupt the Cutie: Both Kyousuke and "Maou" attempt this on her. Kyousuke succeeds in the bad ending.
- Extreme Doormat: Her kind nature allows several people to take advantage of her. Also repeatedly Lampshaded by Kyousuke. Subverted as the game goes on, though.
- Foil: To Kyousuke. She serves as his most obvious antecedent — both of them grew up in poor families, but she led a contented, happy life while Kyousuke is continually seeking to pay back his family's debt, making him a very miserable person.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic.
- Happy Ending: Her good ending is the most unambiguously happy ending. Kyosuke gets an honest job, his foster father's respect, his mother comes to live with him and he has a happy family again, at the cost of a few teeth.
- Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Subverted. She's easily corrupted as part of her Character Development.
- Even after coming to her senses she realizes she'll never be exactly as she used to be.
- In her bad ending, she's corrupted to an even greater degree. She starts smoking, drinking, doing drugs, and becomes a slave to Kyousuke. He even mentions introducing her to Gonzou and that he's taken a liking to her.
- The Ingenue
- Making Love in All the Wrong Places: In her bad ending, they do it in the park.
- Massive Numbered Siblings: Though only one is actually of any importance.
- Nice Girl: Stated outright during the Mizuha chapter that this would be her greatest appeal to the emotionally damaged Kyousuke, though by that point she's already failed to win him.
- Stalker with a Crush: She's not, but something she says very early in the story causes Kyousuke to make a joke about it.
Tsubaki: This is the first time I've heard you say this. I swear, because I write everything I know about you in this diary.
Kyousuke: Somehow that sounded a bit creepy.
- Stepford Smiler: She doesn't realize it, but after her brother's kidnapping, she starts showing signs of this.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Kyousuke's step-sister and a popular figure skater in Japan. A talented and energetic young woman. Her mother also used to be a popular figure skater and used to be Kanon's coach.
Her route reveals that behind her popularity lies a very complicated relationship with her mother.
A cold young woman who's the daughter of the man who funds the school. She's said to have a hatred for two-faced people. She's also Tokita Yuki's half sister.
A young man who always acts cutesy and innocent, but in reality has a scheming and petty personality. He always hangs out with Kyousuke, and is known to be a skirt-chaser.
The primary antagonist of G-Senjou no Maou
. He orchestrates all of the events in the novel, including the kidnapping of Tsubaki's brother, the death threats to Kanon's close friends and relatives, and the hostage situation at the school
.He is revealed to be Kyousuke's Not Quite Dead older brother, Kyouhei. He was proclaimed dead by a botched British investigation, allowing him to roam freely as a mercenary, building up his record of crimes and working his way through the underworld.
- Badass Longcoat
- Best Served Cold
- Cain and Abel: Though not as much as you might expect from someone who has fallen as far as Maou. At the same time he sets up Kyousuke to take the blame for him, his love for Kyousuke remains perhaps his only redeeming quality.
- Chekhov's Gunman: You see Samejima Kyouhei in the first chapter in an old photo. Kyousuke took a picture of his mother and talks about her. So since his father isn't in the picture, who is the tall bishonen guy next to her?
- The Chessmaster: Very much so.
- Corrupt the Cutie: His modus operandi. He notes that it's easy to use children for criminal activities because they haven't learned that it's wrong yet.
- Cynicism Catalyst: He occasionally alludes to how he is bent on revenge against those who have wronged him for the incarceration of his father, the breakdown of his mother and his brother's 'betrayal.' Before this he was a largely normal person.
- Faking the Dead: Twice.
- Freudian Excuse: The same as Kyousuke's, naturally.
- Hypocrite: Spends his dying speech admonishing Kyosuke for abandoning their family and not caring for their plight, which feels slightly hollow considering he'd left them with the impression he was dead and spent the intervening years traipsing about with foreign mercenaries and planning a revenge plot while Kyosuke was actively trying to repay the family's debts.
- It Amused Me: "If someone were to ask me why I didn't kill her, I could only answer that it was because it would be more interesting that way."
- Leitmotif: "The Devil", a remix of Franz Schubert's "Der Erlkönig."
- Love Redeems: Averted. He maintains a soft spot for Kyousuke, but in the end he's too far gone. Amusingly enough, after you realize his true identity you realize that it actually happened for real in Kanon's route when the game was still implying Kyousuke was Maou.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: His name literally means "The Devil".
- Never Found the Body: Though they thought they did.
- Not Quite Dead
- Older Than They Look: He's in his late twenties or so, but looks about five to ten years younger.
- Pragmatic Villainy
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Shaggy Dog Story: All the damages done to the city, all the innocent lives lost during the riot just to pressure the authorities to release his father, who only lasted a couple of hours before dying of a heart attack.
- Teen Genius: Repeatedly called out as such, but his age is ambiguous. He's actually around thirty and simply looks younger, but you're led to believe that he's Kyousuke, making it a subversion.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: To Kyousuke.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Spared Usami when he killed her mother because he was not yet to the point where he could bring himself to murder a little girl, especially one who was basically blameless. In the current story it's made pretty clear that he's past that now.
- Xanatos Speed Chess: How he keeps beating Haru.
The boss of the Azai Group and head of a large Yakuza
group in Japan. He is Kyousuke's foster father and Kanon's biological father.
- Abusive Parents: Well, foster father.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's unclear how he really feels about Kyousuke. Implications lean towards him genuinely caring about Kyousuke about as much as a man like him can... which isn't very much. Still, he took a bullet for him.
- Animal Motifs: Lion, the king of all beasts.
- Genius Bruiser: Behind his brutish appearance is a mind as sharp as a razor. He manages to foil Maou in chapter 2, and possibly could have again in the final chapter if Kyosuke hadn't shown up.
- Fallen Hero: It's implied he used to be a policeman.
- Large and in Charge
- Leitmotif: "Azai Gonzou", a remix of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "Marche Slave".
- Loan Shark
- Pragmatic Villainy: He is unconcerned with "Yakuza honour" and acts purely on a drive for money and power. He nonetheless seems to appreciate strong convictions.
- Taking the Bullet: He leaps out of his car when he knows Maou is trying to snipe him because Kyousuke was about to move into the open like an idiot. Kyousuke isn't sure whether Gonzou meant to do that or not.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Sneers at Maou as he's bleeding to death and calls him a pussy afraid to get his hands dirty.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Shows far more regard to Kyosuke when Kyosuke stands up to him. He is downright amused when Kyosuke manages to one-up him in Tsubaki's route.
A friend of Haru, and known to be an incredibly talented investigator. She is the daughter of a renowned detective. She is also the sister of Mizuha.
It's revealed later on that she has been contracted by "Maou" for two years. She orchestrates a hostage-taking situation in order to get revenge at Mizuha's father.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Yuki is perhaps excessively dignified and always calm, relaxed and on top of things. Beneath her level headed attitude, however, is a girl that has been manipulated into a precise but uncontrolled weapon by Maou, forcing Usami to confront her.
- Alternate Character Reading: Her name's written in katakana, but it can be written in kanji as "snow".
- Cain and Abel: Yuki is actually a villain, though she gets redeemed. She isn't quite sure how much she loves or resents Mizuha.
- Cool Big Sis: To Mizuha.
- Corrupt the Cutie
- Deal with the Devil: Even called as such in-story. We find out in Chapter 4 that she consorted with "Maou" two years before the start of the game and, metaphorically speaking, sold her soul to the devil in order to study the minds of criminals.
- The Gadfly: She really enjoys teasing certain people, especially Mizuha.
- Manipulative Bitch: She has been studying criminology and criminals ever since she was young, and is an expert in reading peoples' habits and deducing their attitudes.
- New Transfer Student
- No Campaign for the Wicked: Shows pretty clear interest in Kyousuke but has no route. It is speculated that the reason Mizuha has one and she does not despite probably having a better story to tell is because Yuki, while not really a bad person, is in the villain camp.
- Revenge/Revenge Before Reason: Her motivation. Specifically, revenge against Mizuha's father.
- Skinship Grope: To Haru. Haru blames Yuki for her large "sweater puppies".
- Younger Than They Look: Younger than Haru, apparently.
