Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Jerry Jewell (EN)

Fiole Folkal

A commoner whom Sion hires as his secretary after helping him save his sister. He idolizes Sion.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Big Brother Instinct
  • Blood from the Mouth
  • Despair Event Horizon: Nearly crosses this after failing to save Eslina, but Sion stops him.
  • Dies Wide Open
  • Driven to Suicide: After his failed assassination attempt, he requests that Sion, whom he believes to be an assassin, to kill him, as he no longer sees a point in living. Fortunately, Sion obviously doesn't comply.
  • Face Death with Dignity: His reaction when Klausberr and the assassins enter his room? Smile and comment on how Sion's going to blame himself for this.
  • Go Out with a Smile: In the novels, as he's reassured by the thought that his sister will be fine in a country where Sion is the king.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He has difficulty letting go of his status as a commoner and thus the notion that someone of his standing doesn't deserve happiness.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He's very, very grateful to Sion, shall we say. See: his letter to Eslina, half of which is him gushing over Sion.
  • I Owe You My Life: To Sion, for saving Eslina and providing a commoner like him with opportunities he never had before.
  • Kill the Cutie
  • My Sister Is Off Limits: Fiole hints that he wouldn't mind Sion marrying Eslina one day, averting this trope himself. Calne, on the other hand, believes in this, as one of the many reasons why he won't pursue Eslina.
  • Nice Guy
  • Orphan's Ordeal: It's noted that Eslina is the sole reason Fiole was able to move on from their parents' deaths, hence his significant attachment to her.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents died in the war years ago, leaving him and Eslina to grow up in an orphanage.
  • Posthumous Character: In the novels, where he only has one scene before dying. Any other scene and his first meeting with Sion are either flashbacks or revealed in the short stories later on.
  • Promotion to Parent
  • The Reliable One: Sion even notes that Claugh and Calne could take a page out of Fiole's book.
  • Revenge by Proxy: He's the proxy.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Though he's by no means forgotten and is often fondly remembered by those who knew him, particularly as a reminder to Sion not to overwork, lest "Fiole up in heaven" get worried.
  • Suicide by Cop: Attempts this with Sion, but Sion refuses.
  • Too Happy to Live: He'd finally gained hope for a future after meeting Sion—and then, well...

Eslina Folkal

Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu (JP), Alexis Tipton (EN)

As the younger sister of Fiole Folkal, she decides to work for Sion, grateful for all that he's done for her brother, and becomes Calne's assistant.

Miran Froaude

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (JP), J. Michael Tatum (EN)

One of Sion's more recently hired subordinates, who often uses more underhanded and immoral means to accomplish his tasks. Nevertheless, he is very loyal to Sion, whom he views as his ideal king.

Kiefer Knolles

Voiced by: Fuyuka Oura (JP), Brina Palencia (EN)

An old friend of Ryner and Sion's, having gone to the same academy as them. She left Roland two years ago to travel the world.

Toale Nelphi

Voiced by: Yuto Suzuki (JP), Todd Haberkorn (EN)

The grandson of the Emperor of Nelpha and potential heir to the throne, though Toale himself would rather have nothing to do with it.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To a degree after Roland invades Nelpha. While his father doesn't get the chance to do anything, Toale is rightfully afraid of the man sending assassins after him.
  • Artificial Limbs
  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses both his right arm and leg while protecting Kiefer from a Rule Fragment attack.
  • Badass Transplant: They can self-destruct, which can do a decent amount of damage.
  • Big Brother Instinct
  • Bookworm: Not to the same extent as Ryner, but it's mentioned that he hangs out at the library often and he knows the librarian quite well.
  • Born Unlucky: Ryner thinks this about him.
  • Break the Cutie: A mild example, in that he still stays fairly strong, but compare his first appearance to when he meets Ryner again. He's understandably exhausted, both physically and emotionally, and things never get truly better for him.
  • Broken Ace: Kind, smart, competent, and beloved by his people to the point where they regard him as their hope. This really wears down on him in the sequel.
  • The Chains of Commanding: This is precisely why he doesn't want to be king.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Shows up for a short while at the start of the series, while Ryner and Ferris stay over at his house, before disappearing from the picture once they leave. He then returns later with more significance when Roland invades Nelpha.
  • Disney Death
  • First Name Basis: He drops the honorifics with Ryner once, as a sign that he finally trusts him.
  • Foil: As noted by Ryner, Toale's circumstances are very similar to Sion's, except Toale has no desire to become king.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He doesn't stay dead, but it's the thought that counts.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Easily one of the nicest people around. But he won't tolerate others messing with his people, and to Vois's surprise, he makes it clear that if it means protecting the Nelpha soldiers, he's willing to let Geihlficlant soldiers die in their place.
  • Heroic Bastard
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He dies from his injuries after shielding Kiefer—though ultimately subverted in that, again, he doesn't stay dead.
  • House Husband: Due to their dad being a dick and none of them being able to see their mothers, Toale's the sole guardian of his siblings.
  • Humble Hero: He doesn't see himself as the majestic prince everyone else sees him as or even as strong as he honestly is, after everything that he's endured.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: His people utterly adore him. It's not so great for him, though.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: And not a king, thanks.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He'd rather support Kiefer with Ryner than even try to pursue her.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: He admits that he should start wearing these if he wants to survive.
  • Martyr Without a Cause: Just a tad too self-sacrificial for his country, which Ryner verbally slaps him for.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Fourteen younger siblings, and that's only counting the illegitimate ones!
  • Modest Royalty: Just look at the above picture. Does he look like royalty to you?
  • Nice Guy
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He prevented the meaningless deaths of 10,000 soldiers... and effectively ruined his own life by thus becoming a threat in Roland's eyes and becoming the leader of the Nelphan forces, even if he didn't mean for either to happen.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Vois stops his breathing and pulse, thus only temporarily killing him off.
  • Only Sane Man: He shares this position with Ryner. Seen best before the fight between Gastark and Geihlficlant, where Vois, Ferris, and Kiefer are jokingly accusing one another of not being prepared, before Toale accepts the blame so that they can actually get down to business.
    Ryner: "It's good that someone's being serious."
  • Parental Abandonment: His dad kicked him and his many younger siblings out.
  • Promotion to Parent
  • Refusal of the Call: Again, he has no desire to be king, despite everyone else pushing him to fight for the throne.
  • Reluctant Ruler
  • Resigned to the Call: After his Refusal of the Call fails. He'll go out of his way to save the Nelphan people, knowing that he's the only one who can, but don't expect him to be energetic about it.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Royal Blood
  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: Tries to pull one off, except Ryner interferes. It's also debatable as to whether it would've even worked in the first place.
  • Supreme Chef: It comes with looking after fourteen younger siblings.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While not necessarily a full-fledged Badass, he does go from being a civilian with no combat history in his debut to a Warrior Prince.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The first few volumes of the sequel are not kind to him.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Not only does he not hold a grudge against Sion, but he won't accept any apologies either. That said, part of it is that apologizing implies Sion believes what he did was wrong, which would then imply the Nelphan people died for nothing, making it something of an insult.
  • Warrior Prince: Eventually forced to become one.
  • The Wise Prince
  • The Wrongful Heir to the Throne: The Nelphan people see his father—the legitimate heir—as this and hope that Toale will inherit the throne instead. On the other hand, Toale sees himself as inadequate due to having been raised as a commoner.
