* KarmaHoudini: The queen of Sauville. Her selfishness, lust, and betrayal drove the king into jealousy madness and ruin after he found out her child wasn't his. Her maid died in the queen's place. However, in the end she ended up living happily and well-off with her son, with no one putting any blame on her at all, instead treating her as if she was the victim in all this.


The story is set in 1924, in the fictional European country of Sauville ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS also known as Saubure]]). At St. Marguerite Academy, a school where the students love to gossip about horror stories and urban legends, many real mysteries find their way into school lore. There, Kazuya Kujo, a Japanese transfer student and the third son of an Imperial soldier, meets Victorique, a strange girl who is so small and beautiful that she can easily be confused with a living bisque doll. Her intelligence and smoking habit, however, make her resemble Franchise/SherlockHolmes more than [[Anime/RozenMaiden Shinku]]. She spends her days skipping class, reading multiple books at a time on the top floor of the library, and solving mysteries so difficult they have even the police stumped. As the series progresses, Kazuya and Victorique continue to get involved in strange cases, where they meet many kinds of people, both good and bad. Despite the [[ArtStyleDissonance moe-style art]], its tone is rather serious.
