     The main group 

Krylancelo Finrandi aka Orphen

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), David Matranga (English)

  • 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.

Cleao Everlasting

Voiced by: Mayumi Iizuka (Japanese) Shelley Calene-Black (English)

  • Plucky Girl: And holy shit, HOW. When she and her sister got kidnapped by Bloody August, Cleao attempted to save herself and Mariabelle almost without hesitation. It didn't work since, well, it was a girl against a dragon, but the thought does count.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Lycoris

Majic Rin

Voiced by: Omi Minami (Japanese), Spike Spencer (English)

  • Evil Costume Switch: Interestingly enough, it's his standart outfit in most part of the Haguretabi novels (except for the hat)

Leki

Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (Japanese)

     The Tower Of Fangs 

Childman Powderfield

Voiced by: Joji Nakata (Japanese), Jason Douglas (English)

Hartia

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (Japanese)

  • 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. It HORRIBLY backfires.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's actually a pretty decent spellcaster, 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)

  • He Knows Too Much: [spoiler: He was the first one to discover the truth about Azalie being in Childman's body.]]

Azalie Caith Sith

Voiced by: Emi Shinohara (Japanese), Christine Auten (English)

  • Broken Ace: She was the most talented and beautiful witch from her generation... and see what happened to her.

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
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Yeah, she is Hartia's pupil, but she's among those who deal the snark the most to him. You would do it too if he made you wear silly fairy dresses, to be fair.

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.

Flameheart

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese)

     Friends 

Tristiny Everlasting

  • Widow Woman: Her husband aka Cleao and Mariabelle's dad died some years ago.

Mariabelle Everlasting

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

  • Cool Big Sis: She is Cleao's older sister.
  • Nice Girl: Mariabelle is one of the nicest people you would ever meet.

Stephanie

Voiced by: Sakiko Tamagawa (Japanese)

  • 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.
  • 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 sorcerer called Stephan who suffered such serious injuries that her male biological body almost was torn apart. While in recovery, she asked the healers to turn said male body into a female one... and now she's Stephanie, and is very happy as a woman. Cleao and Majik are shocked when they find out, but Orphen is rather nonchalant about it.

Lycoris Nielsen aka Lycoris Reika.

Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami (Japanese)

Fienna

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Kira Vincent-Davis (credited as Kira Maltezos) (English)

  • Friend to All Living Things: As the medium and priestess for a Dragon God.
  • Mark of the Beast: Has one on her chest which symbolizes the pact with the Deep Dragon.
  • Star Crossedlovers: She and Majic, since she can't leave her village or she will die.
  • Proper Lady: A sweet and softspoken little girl... who actually manages to save Orphen from a really pissed off Deep Dragon's attacks.
