     The main group 

Krylancelo Finrandi aka Orphen

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), David Matranga (English), Pablo Ausensi (LA-Spanish)

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is rude and mouthy, but has a heart of gold and is completely devoted to those he loves.
  • Love Martyr: Arguably, to Azalie - after learning what she has done.
  • Start My Own: Starts his own magic school called the Swedenbrory School of Sorcery.
  • Papa Wolf: Towards his companions, specially seen when he deals with Licorice's family and then Escalena
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He's pretty tall, with dark hair and tanned skin (plus black clothes), and holy shit he loves dealing the snark.
  • That Man Is Dead: After he refuses to let go of Azalie!Bloody August and leaves the Tower.
    "My name is not Krylancelo! FROM NOW ON, I'M ORPHEN!"
  • Tragic Keepsake: The Tower pendant he wears? It's not his own. It's Azalie's.
  • Warrior Therapist: Specially seen when he deals with Brainwashed and Crazy!Majik via both speaking to him and beating the shit outta him.

Cleao Everlasting

Voiced by: Mayumi Iizuka (Japanese) Shelley Calene-Black (English), Laura Orlázabal (LA-Spanish)

Majic Rin

Voiced by: Omi Minami (Japanese), Spike Spencer (English), Jorge Araneda (LA-Spanish)

Leki

Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (Japanese)

  • Badass Adorable - Killer Rabbit: A baby dragon with the shape of... a black little puppy.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: As said above, he is the offspring of a dragon.
  • Team Pet: Pretty much his role in the plot is being the group's cute pet. Cleao even carries him in her arms many times, like a real puppy!

     The Tower Of Fangs 

Childman Powderfield

Voiced by: Joji Nakata (Japanese), Jason Douglas (English), Sandro Larenas (LA-Spanish)

Hartia

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (Japanese), Jorge Araneda and Tito Bustamante (LA-Spanish)

  • Cain and Abel: Milder case with Orphen, as he is on the side of the Tower and not on Orphen's. He still cares for him, though, and tries to Take a Third Option by using a disguise to help him. It HORRIBLY backfires.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's actually a pretty decent spellcaster and a good magic teacher, quirky and all.
  • Butt-Monkey: As "Black Tiger".
  • Fanboy: Of a certain novel hero named the Black Tiger. He then dresses up as the Black Tiger and tries to assume the guise of its main character and namesake on occasion.
  • He Knows Too Much: Not only he finds out what was going on with Childman!Azalie, but that Lai had become a Human Popsicle. Childman!Azalie almost kills him right there, and he barely escapes to Orphen and Co.'s side.
  • Hey, You!: Cleao and Majik never refer to him as Hartia, but as "the shrimp man". To be fair, at first they didn't know his name, but once they did it... well, it just stuck.
    • The only two times Cleao called him by his given name happened in their Birds of a Feather scene and while speaking to Orphen about Blood August!Azalie.
  • Large Ham: When dressed as the Black Tiger.
  • Unrequited Love: A fairly strong case can be made for him being in love with Orphen since they were pre-teens. The strongest hint would be how he bonds with Cleao, the girl who loves Orphen, over their mutual thoughts on him.

Lai

Voiced by: Katsumi Toriumi (Japanese), Carlos Carvajal (LA-Spanish)

  • He Knows Too Much: He was the first one to discover the truth about Azalie being in Childman's body.
  • Human Popsicle: Rather than killing Lai, Azalie freezes him like this and then hides him. He's released almost at the end.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His left eye is never seen.
  • Seers: This is supposed to be his biggest skill, and he even has a Crystal Ball for such effects.
  • Stuffed into the Fridge: It almost happened to him when he was caught by Azalie. Thankfully, he lived through.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He is very, very good-looking, plus rather quiet and polite.

Azalie Caith Sith

Voiced by: Emi Shinohara (Japanese), Christine Auten (English), Loreto Ayala (LA-Spanish)

  • Broken Ace: She was the most talented and beautiful witch from her generation... but also bitter, sad and more ambitious than she should be.
  • Broken Bird: She had deep, deep insecurities, plus an immense Unrequited Love. Both factors mixed and Hell broke loose.
  • Dark Magical Girl: An antagonistic figure and powerful magic user, with a deeply sad backstory and lots of bitterness behind her cold mask.
  • Important Haircut: Chopped her long hair off when she started studying magic for real.
  • Grand Theft Me: Happens late in the anime, due to being a Pragmatic Adaptation. Happens early on otherwise.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Beautiful, stylish, and damn deadly with her magical spells.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Had Childman not rejected Azalie's love for him...

Leticia "Tisha" Macready

Voiced by: Kotono Mitsuishi (Japanese)

Ellis

  • Boyish Short Hair: She's far more straightforward than the long-haired Fienna, and her hair is extremely short
  • Butt-Monkey: Something silly or humiliating is slated to happen to her whenever she and Hartia go out in adventures...
  • Magical Girl Warrior: As cute as she's skilled in offensive magic.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Yeah, she is Hartia's pupil, but she's among those who deal the snark the most to him. Then again he does make her put on silly fairy dresses...
  • Tsundere: Fairly sweet to Majik, but has quite the short fuse to everyone else and specially to Hartia.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: To Majik

Shastanasi

  • Empty Shell: After she is Out-Gambitted and curb stomped by Childman!Azalie, she is seen sitting on a chair and... well, just being there.
  • Smug Snake: A very, very arrogant and irritating old woman who thinks she's far more skillful than she actually is.

Flameheart

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese), Andrés Skoknic (LA-Spanish)

     Friends 

Tristiny Everlasting

  • Apron Matron: She's a very motherly lady, and is almost always seen wearing an apron as she takes care of the Everlasting household.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: She's the first one to actually ask Lycoris about her family, accidentally undoing her Fake Memories before it's time.
  • Widow Woman: Her husband aka Cleao and Mariabelle's dad died some years ago.

Mariabelle Everlasting

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (Japanese), Kelly Manison (English)

Stephanie

Voiced by: Sakiko Tamagawa (Japanese), Rosario Zamora (LA-Spanish)

  • Deal with the Devil: Had to do one against her will, with a demon who wanted to kill Orphen and threatened her with destroying her town if she didn't "help". Orphen notices and tries helping her to get free.
  • Meganekko: A rather cute young lady whose glasses add to her charm.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Her boyfriend Tim is a Nice Guy from her hometown.
  • Team Mom: She was Orphen's first companion, and she actually sorta coaches Cleao on how to take the torch as such.
  • Trans Sexual: A male to female one. She once was a male-bodied sorcerer called Stephan, who suffered such serious injuries that her male biological body almost was torn apart. While in recovery, she asked the healers if they could turn her injured male body into a female one and they accepted: now she's Stephanie, and is very happy as a full-bodied woman. Cleao and Majik are shocked when they find out, but Orphen is rather nonchalant about it.

Lycoris Nielsen

Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami (Japanese), Keyros Guillén (LA-Spanish)

  • Break the Cutie: The poor girl is completely dragged through the mud towards the end of the TV series.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She is a clumsy girl.
  • Driven to Suicide: Twice. First, when she realizes she's been Dead All Along. Second, to stop her family and friends from fighting to death.
  • Fake Memories: Escalena wiped out her memories after her first suicide attempt, then sent her out with fake ones of being an orphan and a membress of the Royal Cavalry. Esperanza must periodically play a magical song to keep the charade, and when Orphen stops her from doing that and Tristiny makes her a well-intentioned Armor-Piercing Question, Lycoris remembers what happened and almost shatters.
  • Meganekko: A super cute girl with glasses, also Blind Without Them.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: She and Cleao become a textbook example of this with time.

  • Smug Snake: A very, very smug mage who's far less skilled than he thinks he is
