* HumanityIsInfectious: He was raised from a young age to be a stalwart protector of Brigadoon, and his closest relationships back then were really only Pyon and Eryun, who underwent the same grueling training. While acting as Marin's bodyguard, being exposed to the more nurturing environment of her home has him struggling with a stunted sense of empathy, especially during the times when he doesn't know how to comfort Marin at times of emotional distress.
* IgnoreTheFanservice: Being the staight-faced stoic he is, he almost never reacts to some of the... compromising situations other female characters find themselves in. In fact a hallucinogenic vision of Erin licking his face like a puppy just assures him that something is off.

Pyon (pronounced Paion) is the strongest of the Gun-Swordsmen and a former friend of Melan who is now his enemy. He is a noble fighter and follows a strict code of honor, confronting his opponents directly. He has no problem killing people who get in his way, but he’ll give them a fair warning first. Pyon regrets having to fight Melan, but considers him a traitor and intends to bring him to justice.

Kuston. It doesn't quite work.



Erin is the only female among the Gun-Swordsmen. Like Pyon she is a former friend of Melan who is now his enemy, but is far more angry and violent toward him. Fierce and ruthless in battle, she doesn’t care if innocents get hurt and will settle for nothing less than total victory. Perhaps the true reason she’s so angry with Melan is because she had special feelings for him in the past.
