* ComplexityAddiction: As Kaito himself notes, they ''could'' assassinate all their enemies and get them out of their lives in weeks, but they just wouldn't find that satisfying. Instead they spend months assembling convoluted, custom tailored plans in order to put on a show designed to crush all their hopes and dreams.

The demon lord's sister.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: She genuinely believed that the demon lord and the hero would doom their world by their very existence, and saw no other way to save it other than by working with Leon to betray and kill them.

** In the case of Leon, he considers the possibility that Leon might have some understanding of the true nature of the world that Kaito does not, and that it may very well have given him no other choice than to [[ShootTheDog do what he did]]. He also makes it clear that even if that really is the case, he couldn't care less and will pursue his vengeance against him no matter what it may cost.


* DespairEventHorizon: Kaito's goal is to ensure these villains suffer for all that they're worth by destroying everything they consider precious and finally [[CruelAndUnusualDeath kill them in a utterly humiliating, painful fashion]].
** For the court mage Yumis, Kaito destroyed her magic research center and released the undead produced by her own cruel experiments, destroying her reputation as a beloved hero and her family's good name. He finishes this off by killing Sori, the only person Yumis truly loved, before allowing Yumis' abused half-sister Shuira to stab the now-disgraced mage to death.
** For Lucia, Millanis tortured each and every person in Kikkito village who sold her and her mother into slavery over the course of three days, including her own treacherous father. For the final act, Millanis unleashed a horde of maggots that slowly consume all the villagers and reanimate them as zombies. Lucia herself was allowed to live to witness all this until the very last minute, at which point the maggots got to work on her as well. Even as the maggots slowly consumed her brain, Lucia gave an insincere, last-second apology in one last attempt to save herself. Millanis refused.

* MoralMyopia: [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters They]] think nothing of bringing suffering beyond compare to others, as long as it benefits them. If others can be used to [[TheScapegoat take the blame for their more obvious crimes]], wonderful! The moment their own hideous crimes are inflicted upon them by Kaito and his friends, these wretched villains cry foul, portray themselves as innocent victims and declare Kaito's acts to be monstrous crimes worthy of a demon lord!

* ForcedToWatch: As punishment for her incessant attempts to dissuade Kaito and his friends from their quest for vengeance, her attempt to lead them away from Kikkito village through trickery and finally trying to stop Millanis from killing Kirel, Leona and her companions were taken captive by Kaito to watch every step of Millanis' three-day vengeance upon the village, up to and including [[EatenAlive having all the adults (including Millanis' father and his new wife) eaten from within by a horde of maggots, leaving Lucia for last]] ([[EvenEvilHasStandards the children were quietly evacuated by Kaito]]). Leona and her friends faint from sheer shock and horror of it all.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Exhilarated with bloodlust after completing her vengeance on Kikkito village, Millanis attempted to kill an unconscious Leona as punishment for her attempt to deny her vengeance. Kaito [[EvenEvilHasStandards stops her]] since Leona [[ExactWords didn't explicitly lie]] (an oversight on Kaito's part) to Millanis and had selfless intentions for her intervention. [[BothSidesHaveAPoint Both Millanis and Leona have just cause for their respective actions]], but it is likely that the goodwill between them has now been damaged due to [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism conflicting ideals]].

* WrongGenreSavvy: On a more idealistic world where [[HumansAreGood people are generally good]] or at least [[GreyAndGrayMorality morally grey]], her beliefs would not be out of place. Unfortunately, she lives in a world where most people are [[HumansAreBastards selfish jerks]] at best or [[HumanAreTheRealMonsters downright monsters]] at worst. Worse still, Leona seems to have a certain [[SelectiveObliviousness blind spot]] when it comes to anything that challenges her idealistic worldview.

* FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse: It is hinted that many cult members are social outcasts hoping to find a better life on another world. Given that Japanese society is ''extremely'' rigid and unforgiving (and in this case, corrupt!), it is no surprise that there are people who just ''snap'' in the face of such injustice, destroying them mentally and socially. Given that these people would resort to murder, rape and torture to achieve their own selfish happiness, they still deserved their undignified deaths.



* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Tries to mislead Millanis to ''the wrong side of the country'' via the means in the ExactWords entry, and it might have worked, except for the fact that Lucia and Keril were also students in magic class at Carbonheim, where Millanis is, and if Millanis noticed, which she did, not only could Millanis confirm the actual location of her home village, but it would utterly destroy whatever trust and leverage Leona had.

* GoodCounterpart: Arguably, she is this to Millanis. Sadly, it's even possible that Leona is what Millanis could have become had she never experienced the [[DarkAndTroubledPast horrific cruelties of betrayal, racism and slavery]].

Leona also [[SelectiveObliviousness refuses to empathize with anything that flies in the face of her personal beliefs]], stubbornly insisting that VengeanceFeelsEmpty despite Kaito and his friends having ''very'' good reasons for doing what they do.
* SympathyForTheDevil: To her, Kaito, Millanis and Shiura are ultimately good people who need to be shown another way to live. Despite her naïveté, Leona actually treats Kaito better than most people, who simply see Kaito and his friends as evil lunatics who must be put down as quickly and as painfully as possible.
