     Lotis Masters 

Alice Seno

Alice is a shy girl, finding it difficult to talk to other people and prefers to smile and nod, rather than admit her true feelings about something or someone. She has a horrible inferiority complex to her older sister Mayura and is secretly in love with Kyo. When Alice has had enough of her sister, she blurts out that she wishes that Mayura were to disappear... which she does.

Together with Kyo, she sets out to find her sister and reconcile with her.

  • Attempted Rape: Her short-term boyfriend Matsujo tried to, but she was rescued by Kyo. When Kazuki tries it later, she manages to throw him off before Kyo interrupts and Kazuki leaves.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She can dish things out when she actually wants to. Alice is outgoing and extreme about Frey's repeated antics and threw a book into Oishi's face once.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Too shy to admit to Kyo that she liked him. Later on, she mustn't spit it out, otherwise the curse Mayura put on Kyo will kill him.
  • Character Development: Alice starts off as an introverted girl that prefers to speak via SMS to other people, but grows more corageous as the story continues, with her not shirking away from arguments anymore.

  • Heroic BSoD: Falls into a temporary one when Nyozeka sacrifices herself.
  • I Wished You Were Dead: She tells Mayura that she hates her and wants her to disappear, which she promptly does, setting off the story.

Kyo Wakamiya

Kyo is part of the archery club and is laid-back for the most part, but dead serious when it comes to protecting those which are important to him. He starts dating Mayura, after she confessed to him, but slowly realizes that he can't properly love her like he should and blames himself when she disappears. Kyo ends up realizing he's got feelings for Alice.

Kyo tries to get Mayura back with Alice's help.

  • Cooldown Hug: Alice gives him one when Kyo is beating up some guys who were angering him.

  • Hidden Depths: He's an amazing baker and often creates the desserts at his uncle's café.

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Alice gives him a pretty big handprint on his face after he kisses her.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He lost his parents early on and, like Kyo, was shuffled to various relatives. When he was fifteen, he lived with his uncle and cousin, Ida, but was later thrown out when his uncle learned that he and his cousin were involved.

Mayura has a long-standing crush on Kyo and chooses to confess to him on his birthday. When the two start dating, she finds out that Alice likes him, too, and tries to get her a boyfriend.

Alice ends up telling Mayura that she hates her and wishes for her to disappear, so she does. She was momentarily helped when she saw Kyo as her light out of the darkness, but her hurt feelings were too much and she returned to the darkness. Mayura eventually is returned to her family, now a host for Darva.

Mayura turns City Hall into her base of operation and releases Mara onto the entire city. She eventually realizes her wrong-doings and begs Alice and Kyo to save her, before she is consumed by Darva. She is eventually rescued.

  • Dark Magical Girl: Played up a lot in the art depicting her in black.

    • She later manages to visually possess the other Maram Masters' bodies to interact with the real world, while she remains in city hall.

  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She willingly steps aside after Darva's defeat and smiles after Alice confesses her feelings to Kyo.
  • Woman Scorned: Her main reason for her actions is that she feels hurt and betrayed by her sister, who didn't tell her that she loved the same guy, and Kyo, who she thinks shoved her aside for her sister.


A young Maram Master. He is used as the default host for Mayura to use in order to wander around outside the city hall.

Samuel used to sing in a choir, but some of the kids were jealous and pranked him into eating glass shards, which destroyed his voice. He almost turns into a Mara himself, but Kyo and Alice's Areto cleanse him.


One of the Maram Masters.

A Maram Master.

He's actually the death demon - a strong Mara that wanders in the real world and kills those to whom death was wished upon, feasting on them.

  • Humanoid Abomination: Looks pretty human, but underneath his coat is his real form. A human head with a gelatinous, oozing body with claw-like hands and feet, strings of the ooze hanging from his arms to his body and several heads popping out from his torso.

  • You Killed My Father: He was the one who killed Kyo's father, after Kyo told him he should go die. He has also killed countless other people before him.


Frey's friend and companion from the North European Lotsan union. Eric found Frey years ago, back when Frey was about to freeze to death, and told him about the Lotis and eventually got him to join.

Eric suffers from a terminal disease. In his fear, his Lotis words were incapable of healing him and he succumbed to his inner darkness and decided to join the Maram Masters, realizing that their words were stronger. He is also the one who released the Mara among his union's comrades and watched as they all killed each other. Eric mocks Frey before he dies of his illness, hoping to destroy Frey's spirit.

  • Beneath the Mask: Gives off a friendly and gentle nature around most people but is an angry and desperate man underneath who gave up on the power of the Lotis words, that were incapable of healing him, and joins the Maram side. Coupled with an actual mask, with the identity only revealed once the mask comes off.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Frey sees him as this. Subverted when Frey's quick mastering of several Lotis makes Eric feel inferior to him.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: While still masking as a faithful Lotis Master, his hair parts in the middle to both sides and he wears the standard Motherly Sideplait of his union. When he's in his Maram Master attire, the sideplait falls off and he has his hair brushed back from his face.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: It's never revealed what exactly his illness is, but a bonemark transfer was mentioned.
  • The Reveal: He's a traitor to the Lotis and joined the Maram side.

  • Walking Spoiler: Not even his name can be mentioned without spoiling something!

  • Parents as People: Her harsh words and behavior toward Alice when Mayura is initially missing is nothing more than the desparate, frustrated feelings of a worried mother. She does better herself and tries to show more compassion and understanding for Alice later on.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Come across as this, being very focused on her family's well-being.

Mr Seno

Mayura and Alice's father.

  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, while he was out looking for Mayura, he ran into a bunch of street thugs, was mistaken for a hooker customer and arrested by the police.
  • Parents as People: He goes to work, despite his older daughter missing, because he still sees himself as responsible for earning money for the family. His more distant relationship with Alice comes about because she was too shy and both were unclear about what they can talk about with each other.
  • Workaholic: A man who throws himself into work after his older daughter disappears. Subverted, Mayura began to influence him and force him away from the family to leave Alice behind all alone.
