    open/close all folders 

    Ordesia Empire 

Areshia Spirit Academy

Team Scarlet

One of the three teams representing Ordesia Empire

Kamito Kazehaya

The Hero of our story. Three years ago he won the Blade Dance as Ren Ashbell. Now, having lost his contracted spirit, he is lured to Areshia Spirit Academy by Greyworth to compete in the Dance once more.

Claire Rouge/Claire Elstein

A young girl Kamito meets on his way to the Areshia Spirit Academy. After seeing Kamito form a contract, she declares him her slave spirit and forces him to form a team with her. She is actually the younger sister of the Calamity Queen, Rubia Elstein, a fact which has caused her to be ostracized from nearly everyone.

Her wish is to meet her sister and discover why she betrayed the Elemental Lords and her country.
  • A-Cup Angst: Oh boy, is she ever.
  • Action Girl: While she isn't on Kamito's level, she is an extremely skilled combatant in her own right.
  • Broken Pedestal: Her sister's betrayal of the Flame Elemental Lord and the resulting consequences to her parents completely shattered her world and changed the shy, timid girl into the current Fiery Redhead.
  • Catch Phrase: Turn into charcoal!
  • Childhood Friends: To Rinslet. The feeling is mutual, not that either would ever admit it though.
  • Covert Pervert: Actually reads and enjoys rather risque novels.
  • Expressive Hair: Her hair tends to flail around when she's angry. This is because Elementalists can take on attributes of their contracted spirit.
  • Fiery Redhead: So very much
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason she acts like a little brat is because she lost everything after her sisters betrayal, and was nearly universally scorned for her relation to Rubia. This happened when she was ten years old.
  • Lethal Chef: The food she cooks resembles charcoals.
  • Playing with Fire: Her primary element.
  • The Rival: To Rinslet.
  • The Strategist: Surprisingly for her character type, she is the leader of Team Scarlet in more than name, and repeatedly gives out effective winning strategies.
  • Tsundere: She's nearly as bad as Louise at first, though she warms up significantly.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Before Rubia's betrayal happened, she was an adorable little Moe Blob.
  • Whip It Good: Her Elemental Waffe.
    • She uses a normal one to direct Scarlet in battle. And to hit Kamito.

Terminus Est/"Est"note 

A Steel Elemental Spirit that takes the form of a young girl. She was sealed within a sword and is the most powerful Steel Elemental Spirit in the world.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Especially against other swords, as Est is a Steel Sword Spirit of the highest class, most opposing swords are destroyed by her on contact.
  • Anti-Magic: Est has the ability to completely negate and repel magic. Everything she negates is actually absorbed into herself, and once it reaches a certain point, will be transferred to her master, killing them.
  • BFS: Can turn into this.
  • Big Eater: Loves to eat, especially sweets. Once, she ordered and consumed all the sweets on a restaurant menu. As a spirit, she doesn't actually need to consume human foods. Her desire to eat was due to the influence of her previous master, Areshia.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Due to her incomplete contract, she can't even bring out 1/10th of her true power. Just note that even in her current state, she's still fully capable of one-shotting most spirits and can completely negate all but the most powerful spells.
    • It's been stated that at her full power, even the Elemental Lords were terrified of her.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Her powers gradually becomes this for her master.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Acts like this around Restia, since Kamito is her master.
  • Cry Cute
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Est unknowingly killed Areshia Idriss, her previous master, when she absorbed all of Est's stored curses throughout the years.
  • The Dreaded: Restia mentions that even she would not dare make fun of Est if she was her original Sacred Sword self. Even the Elemental Lords are terrified of her.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: As a Steel Elemental Spirit, she naturally have a harder time against Shield Elemental Spirits. "A harder time" as in it takes a little more effort for her to cut through them.
  • Emotionless Girl: How she normally acts.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: When he wakes up in the morning, Kamito almost always discovers Est sleeping next to him almost completely naked (almost, in that she's wearing thigh-high knee socks). Justified because she's actually a spirit and her attitude towards Kamito is not much different than say, Scarlet treating Claire.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Due to her incomplete contract with Kamito, her memories are fragmented and she can't recall much of her past.
  • Legendary Weapon: Est is potentially The Sacred Sword of Severian, the legendary sword that Areishia Idriss once used to defeat the Demon King. However, Kamito notes that there are rumors of the Sacred Sword's possible location from all over the world. She really is the Sacred Sword.
  • Light Is Not Good: Est certainly is good, the way her powers work on the other hand...
  • Morph Weapon: Can freely change shape into any type of sword in order to suit her master's needs.
  • Red Baron: Known as the Demon Slayer.
  • Split Personality: As a result of her incomplete contract with Kamito, Est was split into two personalities. The current Est, with limited recollection of her past, and Sacred Sword Est, her past self.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Kamito. Her original had this to Areshia as well. As they have become separate entities, Est's loyalty is now totally with Kamito. To drive this home, she declared that if Kamito became the Demon King, then she would be the Demon King's Sword rather than betray him.
  • Unholy Holy Sword: She's actually a Demon Sword. All the resentment/curses from the spirits slain by Est are absorbed by her and will eventually pass it onto her master. In the past, she unknowingly killed her previous master, Areishia Idriss and as a result, sealed herself in seclusion in order to never harm anyone ever again. Despite this, Kamito accepted Est, and upon victory in the Blade Dance, plans on using his wish to truly turn Est into a Sacred Sword.

  • Enemy Mine: In the 13th Volume, she fought along side Kamito still unaware that he was the Ren Ashbell that defeated her.

  • Red Baron: The Paladin.
  • Red Herring: Kamito would mention in nearly every volume that during the previous Blade Dance, she was by far his toughest opponent and that he's not eager to have to face her again. Even an encounter with another team from the Sacred Spirit Knights taunted him about facing her. Despite all this foreshadowing, not only do they not fight during the entire Blade Dance, they never even encountered one another until the closing ceremony.

A demon sword, she is the most powerful Darkness Elemental Spirit in the world and takes the form of a girl.

She is actually the embodiment of the will of Ren Ashdoll, the Darkness Elemental Lord. Her goal is to ensure the awakening of the current vessel of Ren Ashdoll's power. ie: Kamito.

  • Dark Magical Girl: She is among the most powerful of the Darkness Elemental Spirits and can use the highest levels of darkness magic.

  • Grand Theft Me: She will eventually be taken over by Ren Ashdoll, along with the mysterious corruption that infects her.
  • Morph Weapon: Can fully change her shape into any type of sword in order to suit whatever her master needs.
  • Red Baron: Known as the Vorpal Sword.
  • Shock and Awe: Vorpal Blast, which is considered Ren Ashbell's signature move.
  • Theres No Kill Like Overkill: Uses Hell Blast, the most powerful Darkness Elemental spell, for everyone including Elementalists, demons, and degenerated spirit ghosts.
    Kamito: Completely merciless...
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Everything shes done was to prevent Kamito from becoming the next Demon King.

"Ren Ashbell" Rubia Elstein

An Elementalist using Kamito's Ren Ashbell identity and is participating in the next Blade Dance. One of Kamito's objectives in the next Blade Dance is to figure out what she's up to. She is eventually revealed to be Rubia Elstein, the Calamity Queen and Claire's older sister. She joined the Blade Dance in order to awaken Kamito as the Demon King.
  • Broken Pedestal: She started losing faith in the Elemental Lords after the destruction of Dylus along with countless incidents. Her faith was on the verge of shattering completely after the Flame Elemental Lord demanded Claire's sacrifice, and was completely lost after witnessing the corruption on the Flame Elemental Lord's throne.
  • Brought Down to Badass: After her contract with Laevateinn was severed, she lost all her ability as an Elementalist but still retained her Elstein Flames. Claire sealing the Demon King within Kamito also greatly reduced her power.
  • Catch Phrase: Do you want to be turned into charcoal?
  • Fiery Red Head: Her true hair color.
  • Lady of War: As the result of being the Sacred Maiden, she is automatically granted the full combat skills needed to battle the Demon King.

  • Rescue Romance: She falls for Kamito after he saved her from Laevateinn, though she didn't realize what she felt meant.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: She gave up everything and was willing to lose both Claire and her own life in order to revive the Demon King. She succeeded, and then it's abruptly undone essentially because Claire refuses to cooperate. Then she throws everything she has at Kamito in a last-ditch effort to re-awaken him, and he kicks her ass without the Demon King's power. Jerk Ass she may be, but everything she had fought for was unraveled in front of her because Claire and Kamito basically said "no".
    • And the worst part? It was never going to work in the first place. She wants to kill the Elemental Lords to eliminate The Corruption, but the Demon King is also corrupted. If Kamito had awakened, he would have destroyed the world in exactly the same method that she was trying to prevent.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: As the reincarnation of the Sacred Maiden, her strength is directly proportional to the power of the current Demon King. As the Demon King grows in power, so will her own. On the other hand, the weaker the Demon King becomes, the weaker she will become in turn.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She realized the insanity of the Elemental Lords along with the corruption and seeks to awaken Kamito, the current incarnation of Ren Ashdoll so that he may kill them and separate the spirits from the human world. The resulting chaos will possibly kill millions of people, but humanity would be saved as a result.
