    Main Characters 

"Is there any meaning to life?"

The heroine of the game. As a member of the organization behind Project Recovery, and due to being one of the few who can travel through time and stay in alternate dimensions for long periods, her job is a Time Negotiator: to travel to various worlds and negotiate with them for their resources.

  • The Ace: Rexus and Livan saw her as this.
  • Anti-Hero: While fundamentally a decent person, she can be quite violent and isn't above things like blackmailing an innocent 13-year-old.
  • The Beard: In Ferim's route, Belph manages to get Elcia access to ORZ Headquarters by claiming that she's his "significant other". Elcia is not amused.
  • Been There, Shaped History: In Rexus's route, she's responsible for various parts of X-Note, like Rexus's screen name and Anon's perverted personality.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Towards Essi.
  • Bio-Augmentation: It's revealed that she—or rather, her host—was experimented on to create the utimate Radioactive Child.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Belph. They're the two halves of the Sadistic Duo, both being a snarky Jerk with a Heart of Gold. Though while they get along for it, it's also why they keep a certain distance, as they can easily tell when the other is lying.
  • Blackmail: In Rexus's Yuon-oriented route, she blackmails Yuon into speaking to his father about the ORZ Corporate in exchange for his Mr. Puffy keychain.
  • Blood Knight: A little too eager to beat people up.
  • Body Surf: Entirely unintentionally. This is what she's actually doing when she time-travels—she's hijacking other people's bodies. In fact, the body she normally inhabits is simply the first one she's stolen.
  • Broken Bird: She mixes it with being a Stepford Smiler, but ultimately, she's cynical, detached, and snarky to cope with a difficult childhood out on the streets, which has led to her lack of faith in the world.
  • But Now I Must Go: Subverted. This appears to be the case in Yuras's Good End, as Elcia gets a signal and so can return to her dimension... except it fails, and she's still stuck in the Ice Age.
  • Childhood Friends: With Belph and Irina. And even before that, Rexus and Livan.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Where Essi had a black colour scheme and was a mostly ordinary, straight-laced girl whose game revolved more around her Love Interests than her, Elcia has a white colour scheme and is a quirky Sadist who's the centerpiece of her game's story.
  • Cool Big Sis: Essi's. She acted as one to all of the orphans her mother brought in as well, as the one in charge of them.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Time itself has issues with her, resulting in the creation of Ferim, whose job is to make sure that Elcia pulls off a Heroic Sacrifice, one way or another.
  • Cry Cute: As a child, she did her best to present herself as tough, but breaks down crying when her mother leaves again, after which she swears never to cry again. At the end of Livan's route, before she and Livan sacrifice themselves, she breaks out in tears again, with Livan telling her that she's been strong for long enough.
  • Damsel in Distress: In Belph's and Livan's routes, she gets captured by Trole/Pedoe, respectively. That said, see Damsel out of Distress.
  • Damsel out of Distress: In Belph's Good End, she gleefully busts herself out of her imprisonment.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Piecing it together is the purpose of the plot.
  • Dead All Along: Her original body died years ago, and her soul is now inhabiting the body of others' in the new worlds that Livan created.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very snarky. It's why she gets along great with Belph.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: The key idea behind her character is 'existence', as she struggles to believe there's any meaning in her life.
  • Devoted to You: She's got a lot of people who are willing to go to extremes to keep her safe and/or make her happy. Seeing this is what encourages Ferim to pull off a Heroic Sacrifice in his route, in fact.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Rexus's, in his Good End.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: One of her abilities. Specifically, she dreams of the timelines breaking in Rexus's route.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: In Rexus's route, she wears an ORZ Corporate uniform so that she can infiltrate the building.
  • Dude Magnet: Though interestingly enough, not for her actual Love Interests. She tends to attract (unwanted) attention from various background characters.
  • Ethereal White Dress: White is her predominant colour scheme, with the mysterious aspect applying for Belph when he met her as kids. As a person from another time period with a dark and troubled past, she fits the otherworldly aspects of the trope.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Whenever she travels to a different dimension, though it's most prominent in the Ice Age.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: With various characters. She's forgotten her entire history with Rexus and Livan, the fact that she briefly met Belph in the Red Forest when they were children, and that she met Ferim in the Red Forest laboratory.
  • The Gadfly: Not as much as Belph in general, but she's especially this around Rexus.
  • Get Back to the Future: In Livan's route. Ironically, she's transferred back the moment she doesn't want to be.
  • Guile Heroine: In Rexus's route, with how she tricks Rexus into revealing that he's the leader and how she deals with Loil, especially in the bad ending.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Rexus and Livan's Good Endings. In Ferim's route, she attempts this, but Ferim prevents her from going through with it.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Irina.
  • Hope Is Scary: In Rexus's route, her bio towards the end of it notes that she's become afraid of her newfound happiness after being stuck in apathy for so long.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cynical, violent, and a self-proclaimed sadist. That said, she's a good person when it counts.
  • Kid Hero: Which she points out, asking Belph if they're that desperate. According to Belph, yes, they are.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She doesn't remember a fair portion of her past.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Livan.
  • Loving Bully: Towards Rexus.
  • Mentor Archetype: She can serve as a mentor to Puppy (Anon) regarding how to sell things on the streets.
  • Mystical White Hair: It can be seen as platinum blonde in some cases, but otherwise, it's very close to white. And, sure enough, she has mysterious powers.
  • Nice Hat: Wears one in the Middle Ages.
  • Not Afraid to Die: As she doesn't value her own life, she doesn't see dying as a big deal.
  • Only in It for the Money: She's not really interested in Project Recovery the way, say, Irina is—she just took the job because it pays well.
  • Power-Strain Blackout: In Rexus's route, after filling the Tower of Time with energy, she passes out. Unsurprising, considering she's filling it with her life energy.
  • The Promise: She promised her mother that she'd look after Essi, which then became her main motivation in life, and which she then passes down onto Rexus.
  • Psychic Powers: Aside from abilities related to preventing the dimensions from breaking, she also has clairvoyance, much like Essi, and prophetic dreams.
  • Sadist: She and Belph were known as the "Sadistic Duo" for a reason.
  • Sentient Cosmic Force: Rexus's Good End implies that she becomes this, with Ferim noting that her essence will always remain in the timelines, and especially so if you interpret Rexus's quick finding of Essi as Elcia's interference.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Off-screen. In Rexus's route, you have the option to make her change into her uniform right in front of Rexus, which she couldn't care less about (although Rexus certainly does). It's actually required to get his Good End, as the idea is to waste as little time as possible when infiltrating ORZ Corporate.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Her beauty helps sometimes, but it's also gotten her unwanted attention, like people propositioning her as a prostitute (when she was 12) and Pedoe wanting to marry her.
  • Stepford Smiler: She's so used to smiling to cover up her feelings that she acknowledges there's no real meaning behind her smile anymore.
  • Stopped Caring: A tough life out on the streets eroded her ability to be optimistic about the world. Enforcing this attitude in Belph's route is what eventually leads to her deciding that this has to change.
  • Street Urchin: She was presumably homeless before attending the institute, and while it's not clear whether or not she had shelter during then, she still had to resort to selling things on the street for money.
  • Super Powerful Genetics: Inherited her supernatural abilities from Ciera.
  • The Tease: She likes to flirt with Rexus to get a rise out of him.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Belph and Irina.
  • Time-Travel Romance: If she pursues anyone besides Belph. Depending on how you look at it, though, that might not be the case, and the only aversions of this are Rexus and Livan, rather.
  • Together in Death: With Livan, in his Good End.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Irina's Girly Girl.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Starfruit. Irina used to get her it all the time back in the institute.
  • Trapped in Another World:
    • In Yuras's route, she sticks around because she can't transfer out of the Ice Age.
    • In Livan's route, she loses her Dimensional Watch, rendering her stuck in the Middle Ages until she gets it back.
  • Trapped in the Past: See Trapped in Another World, due to the nature of Alternate Timelines. In her case, she does manage to return to the Future though she ends up going back, and it turns out that the Middle Ages is her original time.
  • Tsundere: Towards Belph in his route, though Played for Drama. Her unwillingness to get too close and (however understandable) suspicion of him obviously leads to a lot of problems in their relationship. In his Bad End, they go their separate ways after Belph sacrifices his freedom for her sake, with her pretending that she hates him to the very end.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Some thugs try to use her as a hostage against Rexus. You can imagine how well that goes down.
  • Unwitting Pawn: It takes her towards the end of Rexus's route before she finally realizes the true reason Ferim has her fill the Towers of Time with energy.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: A plot point, in fact. Compared to Scid (if you choose the Yuon-oriented path), who comments on Elcia's outfit, the fact that Rexus never says anything about a girl wearing a school uniform wanting to negotiate with ORZ Corporate is a sign that he knows who she is.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Belph. And in the past, with Rexus.
  • With Friends Like These...: Things like threatening to break Belph's ribs is perfectly normal for the two of them.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pulls one off to win an armwrestling match again Rexus when they were children.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: In Rexus's Bad End, she admits that she's always been aware that the timelines were going to break, but desperately wanted to believe that that fate could somehow be avoided—but now, she realizes that that was impossible.
  • You Remind Me of X: Memme notes that Elcia reminds her of her sister. Unsurprising, considering Elcia is said sister's daughter.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: In Belph's Good End, the two essentially become terrorists, despised by the ORZ Corporate but beloved by the people.

"When you believe, you must also prepare to be betrayed."

Elcia's potential Love Interest in the Future. A childhood friend of Elcia's, she and he were known as the "Sadistic Duo" during their days at the institute. He acts as her operator for when she's on missions.

  • Afraid of Needles: As a kid.
  • The Alcoholic: He has two main hobbies: playing video games and drinking. In one conversation with the bartender, Elcia remarks that even if laws were put into place because people drink too much alcohol, that wouldn't stop Belph.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Elcia, as the second half of the Sadistic Duo. His gallery profile mentions that this was done very deliberately to avert the notion that Opposites Attract.
  • Bishōnen: Designed to be the biggest of them in this series, according to Mirage.
  • Break Her Heart to Save Her: What he tries to do to Elcia in his route as he knows Trole will just use her as a bargaining chip if he lets her get too close. In his Bad End, it works.
  • Break the Cutie: His childhood. See Cynicism Catalyst for the details.
  • Broken Bird: Much in the same way as Elcia, what with them being Birds of a Feather. On top of being a Stepford Smiler, he's deeply apathetic, having come to realize how pointless everything he does is due to his Cynicism Catalyst.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's quite intelligent when he wants to be, but a slacker as an operator.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Of the victorious variety in his Good End. Technically, he loses to Rexus and Livan in how long he's known Elcia, but he's also the only one of the three who actually gets to end up with her. He may be one of the unlucky variety in other routes, though it's ambiguous whether or not he has feelings for Elcia in those, seeing as how he's happy enough to pair up Rexus and Elcia.
  • Childhood Friends: With Elcia and Irina. And Rexus, as well.
  • Consummate Liar: As part of his jerkass act, it's hard to tell when he's being truthful or not. Elcia admits in his Good End that he almost had her fooled.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Discovering that his family was responsible for screwing over the world destroys his faith in them and, when he realizes that he has no choice but to be one of them, his idealism.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Parents died when he was little (specifically, his father was Driven to Suicide; his mother's cause of death is unknown), and he discovered he's part of the family that's screwing over the entire world. This prompted him to run away, only to realize that he can't survive on his own, forcing him to come back crawling to his uncle, whom he now resents.
  • Deadpan Snarker: You can always count on him to make sarcastic commentary.
  • Despair Event Horizon: His diary found in Yuras's route reveals that he crossed this, presumably after his own route's Bad End.
  • Driven to Suicide: He doesn't go through with it, but it's heavily implied that he threatens Trole with this if Trole doesn't let Elcia go, knowing that Trole wants him alive.
  • Escapism: Elcia suspects that his gaming and alcohol is this for him, and he suggests that his piano-playing is also this.
  • Extreme Doormat: His diary in Yuras's Bad End reveals that he became this to Trole, presumably after his own Bad End. At least until he snapped and destroyed the world, anyway.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: His bio states that he looks like a gentleman, except he's anything but.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: Trole is determined to groom him into the heir of the ORZ Corporate, whether Belph likes it or not.
  • A Friend in Need: In Livan's route, he helps Elcia as her Mission Control once more after she decides to return to the Middle Ages to see Livan, who, for all they know, is a psychopathic killer. He evidently doesn't agree with her decision, but he won't let her be alone in it.
  • The Gadfly: He loves to say things he doesn't mean just to get a rise out of people.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: According to him, he builds things like machines, weapons, computers, etc. when he's bored.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In his Bad End, he gives up his freedom so as to let Elcia remain unharmed from the ORZ Corporate.
  • Hidden Depths: A talented pianist.
  • If You Ever Do Anything to Hurt Her...: In Rexus's route, he warns Rexus that the man had better not dare to hurt Elcia.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Much in the same way as Elcia. As pessimistic and apathetic as he is, he very obviously had qualms about handing over the Eon Database to his greedy uncle, to name one example of his heart of gold. In general, he's actually a surprisingly good friend and dedicated operator, for all of his laziness and jokes about feeding Elcia false information.
  • Laughing Mad: He does the written equivalent in his diary found in Yuras's Bad End.
  • Lazy Bum: Elcia calls him this word for word, and true enough, he's pretty lazy, both physically and metaphorically.
  • Leitmotif: Some Sweet Day.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Trole claims this word for word, regarding Belph's soft-heartedness.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: One of the most effeminate pretty boys in the game, and his hair doesn't help.
  • Madness Mantra: In his diary, which can be found in Yuras's Bad End, one entry consists of him writing "Destroy!" over and over again as a sign of his descent into insanity.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is a combination of 'bell' from 'Bell Operator', as a reference to his job, and 'elf', referring to his playful nature. It's also likely shorthand for Belphegor, the chief demon of Sloth from the Seven Deadly Sins, which Belph represents.
  • Men Are Uncultured: Next to Elcia, who loves the planetarium (Belph is utterly bored) and orders appropriate food on a picnic (compared to Belph's curry). That said, he does have a cultured side: he's quite good at the piano, with a fondness for classical music.
  • Mission Control: He serves as this for Elcia. This also guarantees that he'll play a decently significant role in all routes outside of his (barring Yuras's), as he can communicate with Elcia across time.
  • The Mole: For the ORZ Corporate. In the end, though, his role only went so far: he stole the Eon Database, yes, but he elected not to hand the crystals over to Trole.
  • Never Gets Drunk: He easily wins the drinking competition he has against Roneo in his route, with Elcia commenting that she's never seen anyone hold his liquor as well as he does.
  • Number Two: To the leader of the organization behind Project Recovery, who dislikes showing his face. Belph is pretty much his representative and does most of the work.
  • Overlord Jr.: Defied. Trole badly wants Belph to be this, though Belph resists. Who wins in the end depends on whether you achieve his Good End or Bad End.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: In Yuras's dimension, he eventually became this, as he mentally devolved into a child with a fancy toy who wanted to see what he could break with it—the 'toy', in this case, being Axilium, and what he ended up breaking being the entire world.
  • Red Herring: His Bad End suggests that he's Irina's murderer. His Good End, however, confirms that this was just part of his attempt to push Elcia away and that he has no idea what happened to her.
  • Replacement Goldfish: His uncle wants him to be this for his father.
  • The Runaway: After discovering the truth about his family, he tried running away, only to end up returning to them when he realized that he couldn't survive on his own.
  • Sadist: Second half of the "Sadistic Duo".
  • Sanity Slippage: Unlocking his diary in Yuras's Bad End reveals that this happened to Belph in that particular dimension.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Being the heir to the ORZ Corporate has its benefits.
  • Secret Keeper: One of the few people who knows who the leader behind their organization is. That is, Rexus.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: He used to be one, as a child, before his Cynicism Catalyst hit.
  • Shipper on Deck: Mildly, towards Rexus and Elcia (and may or may not overlap with I Want My Beloved to Be Happy). He jokes about them going on a date while waiting for updates from him, and when Rexus protests Elcia coming back with him to the Present as it'd leave all the work to Belph, Belph encourages her to do so.
  • The Slacker: It's a bit of a running joke in the beginning that he's always looking for excuses to skimp out on explanations or go home early so he can play video games.
  • Smug Smiler: If he doesn't have a cheerful smile on his face, it's probably a smarmy smirk instead.
  • Stepford Smiler: He's hiding a lot of issues underneath that smile. When he smiles genuinely in his Good End, you will notice the difference.
  • Stopped Caring: After his Cynicism Catalyst, leading to his apathetic personality today.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Elcia and Irina.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Was once an idealistic child who wanted to help everyone. In a sense, he still is, but his experiences have left him heavily jaded and believing it to be impossible now.
  • Verbal Tic: Belph tends to say his true feelings before covering them up with a sugarcoated versi—I mean, Belph tends to phrase things a tad bluntly before rephrasing them in a politer manner.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Elcia. And Rexus.
  • White Sheep: Compared to Trole and his relatives across time such as Pedoe, Loil, and Brash, Belph's a saint with no desire to be like them (provided he doesn't cross the Despair Event Horizon).
  • With Friends Like These...: His and Elcia's banter can get a little vicious at times. He also denies being close to Rexus, despite them obviously being best friends. Also, sorry about leaving you trapped in the Present, Rexus!
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In one dimension, finding his diary reveals that his circumstances eventually broke him to the point where he became a Psychopathic Manchild and ultimately caused the next Ice Age.
  • You Remind Me of X: As Rexus tells Belph, Trole apparently claims that Belph reminds him of a younger version of himself after Belph tricked him into repairing the time machine and unintentionally rescuing Rexus.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Or confusion, rather: Belph isn't sure what to think of Trole actually respecting him for being able to deceive him, considering he'd been expecting Trole to be furious
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: In his Good End, he and Elcia become terrorists, adored by the public. Made all the more hilarious when you play through Rexus's route, where, when asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Belph dryly answers that he wants to become a terrorist.

"I believe there are reasons for all of us to be here."

Elcia's potential Love Interest in the Present. He is the same Rexus from X-Note, approximately a year or so before the events of that game. A samurai-like figure who appears to be stalking Elcia, not much is known about him.

  • Adorkable: Just like in X-Note, of course.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Belph refers to him as "pal" more often than not. To a lesser extent, he and Elcia also sometimes refer to him as "gorilla" instead of his name.
  • Attention Whore: It's mentioned that he used to be a troublemaker as a child, likely to grab attention.
  • Bad Liar: His lies are ridiculous and not executed very smoothly, which Elcia even pokes fun at:
    Elcia: "I express my sympathy for your complete inability to lie."
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Yuon, whom he defends from a group of thugs. And, much like in X-Note, towards Essi.
  • Bishōnen
  • Born in the Wrong Century: He loves the Present, and once he no longer has to worry about dimensions breaking thanks to Elcia's Heroic Sacrifice, he happily remains there.
  • Butt-Monkey: Everyone loves to make fun of this guy, from Elcia to Belph to Livan.
  • Childhood Friends: With Elcia and Livan. To a lesser extent, he's known Belph for a while too.
  • Crush Blush: He's prone to this around Elcia.
  • Curious as a Monkey: It's noted that when he gets into something (e.g. the Mirage fish), he'll research everything about it.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was part of a village that suffered from the plague, resulting in him eventually being captured by slave traders. He was then rescued by Ciera, and lived happily for a while before the avalanche hit, at which point he presumably died. Livan then did his... thing, transporting Rexus across dimensions with no memory.
  • Dead All Along: Much like Elcia, his original body no longer exists.
  • Declaration of Protection: Towards Essi, leading to his role in X-Note.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: In the past. Meeting Ferim and building the time machine changed that.
  • Determinator: Once he decides to do something, he definitely doesn't half-ass it. Case in point: he regularly goes up and down 44 flights of stairs as part of his search for Essi.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: He's dressed as an employee of ORZ Corporate so that he can move around inside the headquarters without suspicion.
  • Face of a Thug: He apparently has a glare that looks as if it could kill puppies.
  • Fiery Redhead: The most energetic of Elcia's Love Interests, and has red hair.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: He's actually from the Middle Ages.
  • Foil: To Livan. They're complete opposites in personality, hence why they've never gotten along, and have different views as to how to deal with Elcia's situation. Livan messed with the entire multiverse to save her, while Rexus instead focuses on Elcia's last wishes: that is, to protect Essi.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: What else do you call someone who can build a time machine?
  • Genius Bruiser: A samurai-like figure, who's surprisingly good with technology. To the point of having been the one to build the time machine!
  • Gentle Giant: He's a pretty tall guy, but equally sweet once you get to know him.
  • Get Back to the Future: In his route, once he learns why he can't return.
  • Giving Radio to the Romans: Downplayed. He designs Doors 8 in the Present, using the skills he picked up from the Future.
  • Headbutting Heroes: He and Livan don't get along at all.
  • Hidden Depths: Elcia even acknowledges it in her updated bio, regarding him:
    "So this guy is a delinquent, a stalker, a bad liar, a hacker, a gorilla fanatic, a teapot freak, a wooden sword master, a lover of udon - not to mention our leader and the creator of the time machine. I thought he's the easiest person to read, but I can't possibly be any more wrong."
  • I Choose to Stay: At the end of his Good End, he decides to remain in the Present and build a life for himself there.
  • I Will Find You: He's searching for Essi to the point of creating a time machine for that purpose, due to his previous promise to Elcia.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One!: Call him a gorilla if you want, but he's not a banana-lover!
  • Insult Backfire: The constant comparisions between him and gorillas would be more insulting if he didn't end up finding gorillas pretty cool, actually.
  • It's All My Fault: Elcia's death, when he realizes that he was Ferim's Unwitting Pawn.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He wasn't aware of his past for a long time, before meeting Ferim.
  • The Leader: Of the organization that Elcia, Belph, and Irina are a part of.
  • Leitmotif: Lonely Cloud.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: More masculine than Belph, at least, but he's an attractive guy with long hair that he keeps in a ponytail.
  • Made a Slave: In his backstory.
  • Manchild: Elcia thinks of him as one, what with him declaring that he's the leader so she has to follow him when the two decide to infiltrate ORZ Corporate, to him gleefully showing off his tea collection.
  • Manly Tears: He breaks down crying as Elcia dies in his arms.
  • Memetic Badass: In-Universe. A bunch of thugs don't even dare to try and mess with him.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: He may look like a thug, which often causes people to make quick judgments on him, but he's a great guy past it all.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Rexus, you really should not have given Livan a dimensional watch.
  • No Respect Guy: Despite him being the leader, Belph and Elcia sure don't give him any respect.
  • Occidental Otaku: He's very fond of Japanese culture, as seen in his interior design and Trademark Favorite Food.
  • One-Man Army: He's rumoured to be this.
  • Pointless Band-Aid: Wears two band-aids on his face, which he's been wearing since a child and which he continues wearing in X-Note.
  • The Promise: The reason behind his devotion to Essi—he promised Elcia that he would look after her.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He and Livan were designed to be this, with Rexus as the Red Oni.
  • Samurai: Yuon thinks he's one, which Rexus is exasperated over.
  • Saying Too Much: Part of why he's a Bad Liar. He accidentally hints that he knows about Project Recovery, that he knows Elcia very well despite being a stranger, etc.
  • Serious Business: The Mirage Fish is this for him.
  • Shrouded in Myth: He's become pretty infamous, leading to some... bizarre rumours about him.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Which Elcia acknowledges. He may look like a brute and be a Bad Liar, but even aside from being a Gadgeteer Genius and Techno Wizard, he came up with the idea of Dressing as the Enemy.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: He looks cool up until the point where he opens his mouth.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Well, saying he doesn't have a crush on Elcia would be a little inaccurate, but his reasons for following Elcia don't have to do with that.
  • Techno Wizard: He's great with computers and even built the operating system Doors 8.
  • This Cannot Be!: He cries out, "Why is this happening!?" repeatedly upon discovering that his actions have led to Elcia making a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Was apparently something of a bully with his large stature as a kid, before his parents died and he became obsessed with being helpful to compensate for not having been a better son.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Udon. Not bananas.
  • Trapped in Another World: Thanks to Belph stealing the crystal used to travel to the Present, Rexus is trapped in that dimension and remains so in most routes.
  • Trapped in the Past: See Trapped in Another World. The nature of timelines means that both can apply.
  • Tsundere: Has shades of being a male version towards Elcia, as he gets extremely flustered and heads straight into denial whenever someone suggests the idea of them being an item.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He doesn't realize Ferim's motivations behind giving him the technology needed to build the time machine, and thus doesn't realize that it'll result in Elcia's death.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Elcia in the past, and Belph in the present.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: One of his main goals was to earn Elcia's approval—without realizing that he'd earned it long ago, when she entrusted him with Essi.
  • With Friends Like These...: Much like Belph, Rexus denies any friendship between them.
  • You Just Told Me: How Elcia tricks him into revealing that he's the leader of her organization.

"Morality is an illusion created by society."

Elcia's potential Love Interest in the Middle Ages. He works as a painter for Pedoe, with his gentle personality and connections being of great asset to Elcia during her missions in his time period.

  • Astral Projection: His real body was hijacked by Ferim, and so what people see now is a projection made by the Silver Orb. Thus, if the Silver Orb is destroyed or taken, Livan will disappear.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Calling him 'bad' is a major stretch, but as Mirage notes in their blog, the Good Endings in the Land path can be seen as Livan's victory, as Elcia gets to live out her life even though the timelines will still ultimately break.
  • Berserk Button: He's extremely non-judgmental and so doesn't get angry at people... unless you involve Elcia.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: A very pleasant and agreeable person who nearly kills Pedoe and did, in fact, kill Irina and a few technicians.
  • Bishōnen
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He's not a malicious person, but he's not quite as amiable as he looks. Just ask the late Irina or, to a lesser extent, Rexus.
  • Black and White Insanity: Inverted. He has a very grey view of morality, which arguably makes him more unnerving than if he'd had a more black and white view.
  • Break the Cutie: His childhood. This was especially clear when he was a child, where he was somewhat unnervingly stoic.
  • Broken Ace: Charming, talented, popular, etc. The most 'perfect' of Elcia's Love Interests, and unsurprisingly, all the more messed up for it. Not helped by the fact that he saw Elcia as The Ace when they were children and aspired to be like her.
  • The Charmer: Elcia notes that there's something about him that quickly attracts you to him.
  • Child Prodigy: He's been a talented artist since he was very young.
  • Childhood Friends: With Elcia and Rexus.
  • Creepy Child: When he was young. He was pleasant enough, but there was definitely something off about him.
  • Cultured Badass: A painter who can wield a sword.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: His parents' deaths, which caused him, to paraphrase Rexus, to lose something fundamentally human. Seeing them die in their attempts to save others disillusioned Livan regarding the notion of trying to help people, resulting in an extremely pessimistic outlook on life.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His parents died trying to help everyone during the plague, after which he, along with Rexus and others, was captured by slave traders. After Ciera rescued them and gave them a happier life, an avalanche struck, killing everyone but Livan, who couldn't accept it and thus rewrote reality.
  • Dead All Along: His physical body now belongs to Ferim, rendering Livan as good as dead. What's seen now is a projection created by the Silver Orb.
  • Determinator: His determination to save Elcia is one of his defining traits, if you were to ask Ferim.
  • Foil: To Rexus. See his section for the details.
  • Graceful Loser: Given a certain definition of 'loser'. Elcia finds it worse that Livan doesn't even deny her accusations of him being Irina's murderer, as a part of Why Can't I Hate You?.
  • Headbutting Heroes: With Rexus. He admits that their ways of thinking are too different for them to reconcile
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Granted, he caused all of it to begin with, but he gives up his life in his Good End, as per Elcia's wishes, to restore everything to normal. In Ferim's route, he similarly gives the Silver Orb to Rexus, presumably ending his life in the process.
  • Honey Trap: Seduced Irina, and then killed her when she got in his way.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He just wants Elcia to remain alive and safe, in whatever dimension she ends up in, even if it's not with him.
  • I Will Find You: He doesn't search through the multiverse for Elcia the way Rexus does for Essi, but a recurring part of his route is the idea that he will always find Elcia.
  • Kick the Dog: He's Irina's murderer—a fact that he shows no remorse over until he realizes Irina was Elcia's best friend.
  • Leitmotif: Nostalgia.
  • Made a Slave: He was once captured by slave traders.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is a combination of 'river' and 'live on', referring to his connection to the Silver River and his wish that Elcia live, no matter what.
  • Meet Cute: How he meets Irina: the two accidentally knocked into each other at the lounge.
  • Nice Guy: The friendliest and most helpful of all of Elcia's love interests. To the point where he'll stab anyone who threatens to harm her.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Him (nearly) killing Pedoe comes across as rather sinister, to the point where Belph immediately transfers Elcia away from the scene, but Pedoe kind of had it coming.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He and Rexus were designed to be this, with Livan as the Blue Oni.
  • Sole Survivor: Of the avalanche that killed Elcia and the other children—until he rewrites reality to save them, anyway.
  • Starving Artist: Despite being the personal painter of the king's brother, he lives in a rundown hut, and admits that artists have always been associated with poverty, making him grateful to even have a place to live.
  • Stepford Smiler: Memme notes that he's always been smiling over the last five years, belying a guy with plenty of emotional baggage.
  • Together in Death: With Elcia, in his Good End.
  • Tranquil Fury: He's all smiles and manners while nearly killing Pedoe in vengeance for what he tried to do to Elcia.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: He was a bit creepy as a kid, such as cheerfully suggesting that they poison the slave traders' food to escape.
  • The Unfettered: He'll do whatever it takes to keep Elcia safe.
  • Warrior Poet: He tends to get very philosophical and possesses interesting views on death, violence, etc. This has likely also translated into the ease in which he can kill someone.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In Ferim's route, Rexus calls him out on screwing up the timelines in the first place, asking if this is what Elcia really wants. Livan ultimately admits that no, it's not.
  • Why Can't I Hate You?: He tends to invoke this reaction from people, from Irina to Elcia.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was willing to wreck his original world for the sake of creating a new one where Elcia lives and is determined to stop Ferim from correcting this—despite knowing that it'll lead to the multiverse breaking—thus leading to the events of the game.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's a teal shade, to match the rest of his colour scheme.

"I live today to see tomorrow."

Elcia's potential Love Interest in the Ice Age. Having grown up in a harsh environment, Yuras is a boy of few words and heavily survival-oriented, with his physical strength assisting Elcia more than once.

  • Abusive Parents: Brash is his surrogate father, rather than his blood one, but the man's a violent Jerkass.
  • Badass Adorable: The most combat-oriented of the main characters while also being the Token Mini-Moe.
  • Badass Cape: He wears one as part of his caveman image.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In his Bad End, where he snaps and slaughters everyone save Elcia.
  • Bishōnen
  • Blade on a Stick: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Break the Cutie: His past. It'll happen again in his Bad End.
  • Brutal Honesty: Elcia describes him in his bio as "brutally honest".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He has an odd thought process at times. Case in point: trying to bury Elcia in the snow so that her corpse won't be fed on. This would sound reasonable... except he's explaining this to the talking Elcia, who points out that she's still alive.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Grey hair and grey eyes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Had to kill all of his surrogate brothers as part of a village tradition. He did not take it well.
  • Death Glare: His glare intimidates Elcia into eating the raw meat, no matter how gross she finds it.
  • Despair Event Horizon: He crosses it in his Bad End, after Ciera dies.
  • Determinator: He will survive, no matter what comes.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: In his Bad End, after Ciera's death.
  • Dumb Muscle: Very strong, but not too bright.
  • Emotionless Boy: He tends to react to everything very passively, as his utter lack of selfishness means that he can't express his personal feelings on anything.
  • Extreme Doormat: Towards Brash. At first, at least.
  • Foil: To Oure from X-Note. They're both associated with the colour white and the Token Mini-Moe of their respective game, hence why the creator then tried to make Yuras as different as possible in terms of personality.
  • Generation Xerox: His circumstances regarding the "ritual" conducted years ago mimic Brash's own when the man did it previously.
  • Leitmotif: Down On the River.
  • Little Mister Badass: As noted under Badass Adorable, he's the smallest of the main characters but the most badass as well.
  • Love You and Everybody: When Ciera asks if Yuras likes Elcia, he says yes... and then adds, "I like meat, too."
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Elcia is amazed at how much physical strength he has considering those thin arms of his.
  • Nice Guy: Elcia describes him as the most intimidating person she's ever met, but past that, he's an honestly kind person who barely has a selfish bone in his body.
  • Not So Stoic: When he finally smiles in his Good End, it melts Elcia's heart. On the reverse end of the spectrum, he absolutely loses it in his Bad End.
  • One-Man Army: Best seen in his Bad End, where he slaughters Brash and the others.
  • Out of Focus: Outside of his route, he has by far the least prominence in the story compared to the other Love Interests.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: His stature belies his physical strength.
  • The Quiet One: He's not one for words.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: In his Bad End, he loses it after Ciera's death and kills all those responsible.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: When he decides to interrupt Ciera's sacrifice ritual.
  • Sole Survivor: He's known as "The Survivor" for a reason. Namely, as per tradition, he had to fight against several others and was the last one standing.
  • The Stoic: It takes a lot to get a rise out of him.
  • Survivor Guilt: The reason he's so determined to survive is because his family died for his sake, and so he feels like has to live on to respect their sacrifices.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: He accepts the traditions of his village, no matter how cruel they are, even though they obviously conflict with some of his personal desires. In the end, as he tells Brash, he'd rather have his family than restore past glory.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Compared to the other Love Interests, who are around Elcia's age or older, Yuras is the only one who's more than a year younger.
  • Unstoppable Rage: During his Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Memory of Ice shows that he was this as a child, next to his "brother".
  • Young and in Charge: In his Good End, he ends up as leader of his village.

"What does it mean to be human?"

Elcia's potential Love Interest in Area-X. A mysterious being who claims to not be human and who possesses an agenda, Ferim offers Elcia cryptic advice about what she needs to do but otherwise tells her little.

  • Adorkable: He shows some shades of this in his route, due to his tenuous grasp on human quirks.
  • The Ageless: This appears to be the case, given that he forcibly aged Livan's body from a child to a teenager in order to survive in the Ice Ages.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of time—or rather, a defence mechanism of it.
  • Anti-Hero: He's devoted to saving the timelines, even at the cost of Elcia's life. He isn't antagonistic, though; in routes where Elcia realizes what his aim is, she willingly goes along with it.
  • Bishōnen: Underneath that hood.
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: His favourite food is... shaved ice. Flavourless shaved ice.
  • Black Cloak: He's not evil, but his morals are a little ambiguous.
  • The Chessmaster: He does his best to pull the strings to ensure that he gets what he wants, starting with giving Rexus the Eon Database.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He comes across as this to Yuras and Yuras's brother in Memory of Ice, due to his tendency to explain things out of context.
  • The Comically Serious: Much of the humour in his character comes from the utterly straight-laced and sincere approach he takes to everything, no matter how ridiculous.
  • Curiosity Causes Conversion: His desire to understand humans ultimately makes him become more human-like.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Underneath that hood, he has blue hair and blue eyes.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Memory of Ice is a side story mostly told from his point of view.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: His appearance and the name he gives Elcia? They belonged to Yuras's big brother.
  • Disappears into Light: When he dies on-screen, which is in many routes.
  • Emotionless Boy: Sort of. As Ferim notes, his body experiences emotion, but he's mentally incapable of understanding the emotion.
  • The Faceless: His face is revealed only in his route.
  • Grand Theft Me: Somewhat unintentionally. He didn't mean to be stuck in the body he's in, and sees it as something of a prison.
  • Guardian of the Multiverse: He serves as this. His duty is to make sure that the multiverse doesn't break as a result of Elcia's existence.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of his route.
  • Hidden Depths: In-Universe, Elcia admits to being surprised at the realization that he can lie, as he just didn't seem like someone who would, despite Ferim pointing out that if there's one thing humans always do, it's lie.
  • Humanity Is Infectious: He suspects that inhabiting Livan's body and observing Elcia is making him more human-like.
  • I Will Find You: Suffice to say that he worked hard to locate Elcia after she was displaced to another timeline.
  • Lack of Empathy: A less villainous example than most. Ferim has difficulty understanding others' feelings, let alone empathizing (best seen in Rexus's Good End, where he's utterly passive in response to Elcia's Heroic Sacrifice and Rexus's grief), but it's due to not being human and thus lacking the required experience with people. In his own route and Memory of Ice, it's clear that he wants to understand.
  • Leitmotif: Eternal Flame.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: His belief as to why he cares about Elcia, although Ciera seems to think differently.
  • Mr. Exposition: In his route, once he stops being the Mysterious Informant. He also a tendency to go on long explanations in Memory of Ice, much to the bafflement of those around him.
  • Mysterious Informant: Elcia learns not to expect much info out of him.
  • Mysterious Stranger: Hidden appearance, unclear motivations, resides in an unknown dimension, etc. To quote his bio:
    Stoic, unearthly, and above all mysterious.
  • No Name Given: Ferim isn't really his name, but an alias of sorts that he chooses to go by. In Memory of Ice, before he obtains the name of Ferim, he's just marked as ??? and called various things, from "Evil Spirit" to "Blue Monster" to "Snow Manager", etc.
  • The Needs of the Many: If saving the multiverse requires sacrificing Elcia, so be it. In his route, he comes to think differently, to his surprise.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: In his route, he gets a little too close to Elcia for comfort. Of course, it's because he has No Social Skills, rather than him trying to suggest anything.
  • No Social Skills: That's one thing he didn't pick up on from being around humans.
  • Not Afraid to Die: His inability to value his own life means that he cannot fear death.
  • The Quiet One: Expect a lot of "..." from him.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A male version. Mysterious figure with blue hair and eyes who's seemingly emotionless but becomes more emotional as time goes on, etc.
  • Ret-Gone: His fate in his own route.
  • The Spock: His thinking tends to be along the straight and narrow path, due to his difficulty in comprehending human emotions.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Taken to hilarious levels in his route, where he shamelessly admits to being a stalker without understanding the negative connotations behind the word.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He has the darkest colour scheme (dark blue) of the Love Interests, and damn, is he handsome underneath that hood.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Prone to this (not that he realizes it).
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Believe it or not, his Heroic Sacrifice is this. Because he's doomed to die no matter what (if he wins, he dies; if he loses, he dies), his death in his own route at least has meaning to it, rather than simply disappearing because he's no longer needed.
  • Walking Spoiler: Saying anything about his motivations spoils the plot of the entire game.
  • The Watcher: Part of his duties involves observing the multiverse.
  • What Is This Feeling?: The development of his emotions confuses him. At the end of his route, he decides that what he feels over his time with Elcia is 'happiness'.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: He believes in this, failing to understand why his death would mean anything, as he's nothing but a non-human without an identity.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

    Characters from X-Note 
These are the characters who appear predominantly in X-Note. Unless otherwise stated, assume most of the tropes of that game apply here as well.


The heroine of X-Note, whom Rexus is searching for.


The first new person Elcia meets in the Present. Depending on the actions Elcia takes, he may help her find a way to contact Loil (albeit not entirely voluntarily).

Puppy (Anon)

A boy working for McMirage and who also sells wares on the streets. Depending on the actions Elcia takes, she may enlist him as a pupil and have him dig up information on ORZ Corporate in return. In Ferim's route, he may also appear in the Middle Ages.

  • Big Damn Heroes: In Ferim's route, he potentially saves Elcia from a group of guards using his psychokinesis.
  • Identical Stranger: Compared to Oure, who seems to be the same in both Yuras's route and Ferim's route, the Anon (or rather, Xirr) who potentially appears in Ferim's route isn't the same "Puppy" that Elcia meets in the Present.
  • No Name Given: He doesn't give Elcia a name, instead letting her choose whatever she wants, so she goes with Puppy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Puppy is just the nickname Elcia gives him.
  • The Quiet One: His Middle Ages incarnation is this.
  • The Stoic: Compared to his Present self, his personality in the Middle Ages is much more serious and down-to-earth. Given the use of his real name, this is likely the self closest to his personality as a child.


A boy Elcia meets while searching for Crete with Yuras or, potentially, exploring the Middle Ages for memories, who does his best to help her with her goals.


Yuon's father. Depending on the actions Elcia takes, she may strike a deal with him: he gets her a connection with Loil, and she'll help repair his relationship with Yuon.

  • The Atoner: To make up for his past deeds, he protects Essi from Loil.
  • Failure Knight: Acia tries to invoke this with him for Yuon, reminding Scid that he can still redeem himself with Yuon, at least.
  • No Social Skills: His attempts at conversing with Yuon and asking Elcia for help are... less than eloquent, shall we say.
  • Parents as People: More obvious here than in X-Note. It's obvious he wants to reconnect with Yuon, but is initially afraid to get too close in fear that Yuon blames him, and has no idea how to talk to the boy.
  • Shared Family Quirks: As a test, Elcia asks Scid what his hobbies are. He replies that he likes chess.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Rexus describes Scid as this. Again, Like Father, Like Son.


A friend of Scid's. Depending on the actions Elcia takes, she may meet the woman and develop a light friendship with her.


The head of the ORZ Corporate in the Present.

  • Faux Affably Evil: He's very friendly to Acia, who evidently hates his guts.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite getting him to back off, Elcia admits to Acia that Loil has a point when he claims that those without special abilities will see themselves as inferior to those with them.
  • Properly Paranoid: He's paranoid to the point where he doesn't leave information in his computer where people can find it. This would probably be unnecessary, but seeing as how, unbeknownst to him, he actually does have a Techno Wizard in the form of Rexus for an adversary...
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Other characters tell Elcia that Loil is basically this.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Definitely Pedoe's descendant and Trole's ancestor (except ten times worse than the latter, according to Rexus).
  • Villains Out Shopping: Subverted. Loil tries to suggest this is what he's doing at Dudebucks, but Acia knows better than to think that Loil, of all people, "[chills] for a coffee".
  • 0% Approval Rating: His enemies don't like him, his past acquaintances don't like him, his employees don't like him...


A childhood friend of Elcia and Belph's, having gone to the same school as them, and a member of the same organization. Despite her frequent exasperation at their antics, she's considered to be Elcia's closest friend.

She can be found in the Future.

  • Bad Liar: Belph notes her to be one of these, hence why he could easily tell that she was The Mole.
  • Childhood Friends: With Belph and Elcia.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Her gallery profile notes that she's meant to demonstrate how flawed the typical Shoujo heroine would be without plot convenience, such as her relationship with Livan, complete with Meet Cute and Love at First Sight, ultimately turning into her Loving a Shadow as Livan is far, far from the perfect Shoujo Love Interest.
  • Foil: Her idealism and more "traditional" heroine personality is meant to act as a counterpart to Elcia's cynicism and snarky attitude.
  • Forced into Evil: Made into The Mole by Trole, via blackmailing her with her father's safety.
  • Go Through Me: What she tells Livan when he demands to be taken to the time machine.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Elcia.
  • Hidden Depths: Her diary reveals how fragile her self-esteem is, and that she's quick to judge people compared to Elcia, which she feels guilty over—resulting in some of her niceness manifesting from her desire to smooth over her flaws.
  • Kill the Cutie: A Nice Girl who serves as the bright spot in the protagonist's life? Any skilled player would know that she was going to die.
  • Killed Off for Real: Unlike several characters, who are Not Quite Dead, Irina is most definitely dead.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Elcia, for an extent, as her cheerful nature serves as a bright spot in Elcia's otherwise pessimistic outlook on life. Her death then continues to serve as Elcia's main motivation.
  • Love at First Sight: For her boyfriend.
  • Loving a Shadow: She admits that in the end, this was the basis of her relationship with Livan.
  • Meet Cute: How she met Livan.
  • The Mole: Her job was to make sure that Belph—another traitor—would do his.
  • Nice Girl: She sometimes loses her cool when Elcia and Belph are being trolls, but she's a very sweet girl otherwise.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: If only she hadn't shown Livan around, he might never have found the Axial Power Plant and time machine...
  • Plot-Triggering Death: With the exception of Yuras's route, solving the mystery of Irina's death serves as one of Elcia's biggest motivations.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Once the game establishes what good friends she and Elcia are, she's killed off.
  • Signature Hair Decs: She wears several hair clips, emphasizing her girlish nature.
  • ¡Three Amigos!: With Belph and Elcia.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Elcia's Tomboy.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Compared to the cynical Elcia and Belph who have no interest in restoring the land, Irina is very optimistic and sincerely believes in the purpose behind Project Recovery.


The president of the ORZ Corporate and thus de facto leader of the entire world. He rarely shows himself in public.

He can be found in the Future.

  • Ambition Is Evil: Trole is never satisfied with what he has, instead seeking to always possess more, which leads to his antagonist actions.
  • Big Bad: Of Belph's route.
  • Blackmail: Blackmails Irina into being The Mole by threatening her father. He also attempts this with Belph, using Elcia's safety as leverage.
  • Broken Pedestal: For Belph, who used to idolize him until he realized how selfish and greedy Trole really is.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: As the leader of ORZ Corporate, he owns just about everything in the world and is happy to monopolize it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As Belph notes, he's a greedy, manipulative bastard—but that's all he is. He's not so ruthless as to murder Irina and the others.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Inverted on a meta level. He's an awful person, but much better than the likes of Loil and Pedoe. His gallery profile confirms that this was done to make him a Red Herring, as players coming from X-Note likely expected him to be like the Obviously Evil Loil who was responsible for the early game murder.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's polite enough while screwing around with others.
  • The Gadfly: Very fond of messing with people. Just like his nephew.
  • Greed: What he represents from the Seven Deadly Sins, as someone connected to ORZ Corporate.
  • Humiliation Conga: Belph's Good End is not kind to his ego.
  • It's All About Me: He has difficulty with that thing called 'empathy'. Oh, and 'compassion'.
  • Jerkass: He's not a pleasant person, to be sure.
  • Lonely at the Top: He's a self-centered Jerkass who tries to monopolize everything, but in the end, he doesn't want to rule alone. He intended to be at the top with Belph's father, before the man was (heavily implied to be) Driven to Suicide. It's why he's now determined to have Belph with him.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Must be where Belph gets it from.
  • Manchild: He's mentioned to enjoy children's toys and cupcakes.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Suffice to say that blackmail is a favoured means of his. Belph knows this well, and Irina finds out the hard way.
  • Meaningful Name: Trole is, unsurprisingly, a troll, even being explicitly referred as one at one point.
  • Red Herring: Despite all the clues, he's not Irina's murderer. Tough luck, sucker!
  • Shared Family Quirks: The similarities in personality between him and Loil are not lost on Rexus and Belph. Also, it's not hard to see where Belph got his personality from.
  • So Proud of You: Of Belph (through Rexus as a proxy), after Belph tricked him and got him to inadvertently save his worst enemy. Yeah, Belph was a little confused when he heard about this.
  • Take Over the World: Or rather, multiverse.
  • Terms of Endangerment: Always refers to Belph as "dear Belph".
  • Unwitting Pawn: Belph tricks him into repairing the time machine and thus rescuing Rexus in Rexus's route.


The king of Sitnalta. After being introduced to cookies, he changed significantly and has now developed an obsession with the treat.

He can be found in the Middle Ages.


The king's younger brother. Though he despises the king for his obsession with cookies, Pedoe is similarly obsessed with bears and has had numerous wives and children.

He can be found in the Middle Ages.


One of Pedoe's many wives. Unlike her husband, Memme is a reasonable, mature woman who cares deeply for her son. She also happens to be a witch, with a pet cobra.

She can be found in the Middle Ages.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: As a witch, she's suffered from heavy prejudice.
  • Broken Bird: Being forced to marry Pedoe has led to her having shades of this, with the one thing that stops her from fully becoming one being her son, Ursin.
  • Compelling Voice: One of her abilities as a witch.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She might look shady, but she's actually quite a nice lady.
  • Foil: To Ciera. Where Cieria is a case of Silk Hiding Steel, Memme is an inversion, looking intimidating but turning out to be rather soft.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: An elegant noblewoman with a purple colour scheme.
  • Hand Wave: In her character notes, the creator admits that her snake technically shouldn't exist considering the climate, but that they'll shrug it off as being a "special" snake.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Her decision to marry Pedoe was this, as a means of preventing her sister from death or having to marry him instead.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Subverted. Her marrying Pedoe most definitely had nothing to do with love.
  • Mama Bear: Very protective of her son, Ursin, and is the only one actually concerned about finding him.
  • Women Are Wiser: She's much wiser than her husband.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair, though hers has less reddish tones than Pedoe's.


Pedoe and Memme's son. Despite his status as a noble and as Pedoe's son, Ursin is mature and down-to-earth, like his mother.

He can be found in the Middle Ages.


Yuras and Ciera's surrogate father, and leader of Santo. He is a descendant of a lost civilization, whose glory he hopes to restore.

He can be found in the Ice Age.


Yuras's sister, and a sweet and gentle woman who possesses mysterious powers.

She can be found in the Ice Age.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Like Memme, she's a witch from the Middle Ages, during which she and her family were hunted down.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Brash discovers this the hard way.
  • Black Cloak: She used to wear one. It probably didn't make her seem any less suspicious to Rexus and Livan back then.
  • Body Snatcher: She's in the body of Yuras's older sister. Suffice to say she was confused when she woke up to find some kid referring to her as such.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Yuras. And, biologically, to Memme.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Due to the witch hunts, she left her children behind so that the people's focus would be on her, rather than them.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: She's originally from the Middle Ages, though by the time you meet her, she seems to have settled, largely thanks to Yuras's help.
  • Hair Color Spoiler: It's easy to miss at first, due to Elcia's hair appearing to be platinum blonde rather than outright white the way Ciera's is, but Elcia definitely got her hair and eyes from her mother.
  • Healing Hands: One of her abilities.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In both of Yuras's End, for different reasons.
  • Human Sacrifice: Brash intends to sacrifice her to restore the glory of his ancestors.
  • Ill Girl: At one point in Yuras's route, she mysteriously falls ill, leading Yuras and Elcia to go find the cure. She's faking it.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Yuras, if Elcia doesn't manage to form a close enough bond with him.
  • Mind over Matter: Another one of her abilities.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Due to her in-game sprite apparently not aging a day over the last ten years, she barely looks older than Elcia, her teenage daughter.
  • Mystical White Hair: She has white hair and possesses supernatural abilities in a setting where such a thing isn't common.
  • Not-So-Small Role: She's more than just Yuras's sister. Specifically, she's Essi and Elcia's mother.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Don't be fooled by how gentle and ladylike she seemed. Her core of steel shows itself when she brings down the underground cavern to put an end to the human sacrifices, revealing that this was her true intention all along.
