In General

Yui Komori

Voiced by: Rie Suegara (anime) (Japanese), Maggie Flecknoe (English), Vanessa Olea (Mexican Spanish).

The heroine of the franchise and the player character. After her father moves abroad, she is forced to live in a mansion with six mysterious vampires.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Despite their incredibly jerkass personalities and/or sadomasochistic tendencies, Yui ends up falling for one based on whose route she's in.
  • Babies Ever After: In some routes of the game version.
    • In MORE,BLOOD ending No. 1 ("Vampire Ending"), she and Azusa have three children. All of them are named after Azusa’s former “friends” and wounds: Justin, Christina, and Melissa.
    • In Ruki's Brute ending, Yui and Shin have a son named Adam.
    • In Lost Eden Good End, she is pregnant from Carla and Subaru in their respective routes.
  • Blessed with Suck:
    • Yui being Cordelia’s vessel, causing her to be a Bishonen Vampire Magnet.
    • In the BLOODY BOUQUET series of CDs, she's cursed with a spell that makes her blood inedible to vampires. However, by this point, she's already in a relationship with a vampire, they have intimate moments by drinking blood, and the curse slowly kills her if her man doesn't perform an Act of True Love.
  • Butt-Monkey: Though didn't get beaten up and bruised like her Male Harem Lead Counterparts, she's almost everyone's punching bag and seen nothing more than just a mere blood bank, at first.
  • Damsel in Distress: From having her blood sucked by immoral vampires to having her body being nearly taken over by Cordelia.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Her father is a vampire hunter, and her love interests are vampires. It goes how you imagine.
  • Dude Magnet: Justified because her special type of blood attracts the male vampires in the series; deconstructed since she has to deal with them biting and harassing her against her will. If she's just an ordinary girl they'll just simply kill her and find a new vessel.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Is given a number of demeaning nicknames by the vampires.
    • Ayato calls her "Pancake" for her small chest.
    • Laito calls her "Bitch-chan". Crunchyroll translated it as "Little Bitch" for the anime, in the Mexican Spanish dub it was translated as "Pequeña Zorra"note , and in the Portuguese dub its nickname was literally translated, as "Vadia".note  This one (alongside the nickname "Pancake" given by Ayato, literally translated as "Panqueca") was considered by many watchers as a "Blind Idiot" Translation, as most FanSubs used the original term.
    • Yuma calls her "Sow".
    • Kou calls her "M Neko-chan" (Masochistic Kitten).
    • Ruki calls her "Livestock".
  • Extreme Doormat: Some of the boys are bothered by her passiveness and whining instead of trying to escape from the Sakamaki mansion and start living on her own. The reason why she's like that in the first place is because she's told she'll get killed by the brothers if she dares to defy them.
  • Fear of Thunder: She is afraid of thunder.
  • Females Are More Innocent: Out of all of the main characters, Yui is most innocent among her love interests. However, this can be subverted if she's pushed over the edge.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: In some of the routes, she is shown cooking.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Yui Komori is her default name but it can be changed.
  • Heroes Want Redheads : If either Laito or Ayato's route is chosen.
  • Ill Girl: In the Bloody Bouquet series, Yui is in danger of this after she gets pricked by a black rose's thorn. Additionally, this also makes her blood completely inedible to the vampires, and only an Act of True Love can save her.
  • Japanese Christian: She was raised Catholic.
  • Morality Pet: Her influence is the main reason the boys change their sadistic ways.
  • Mysterious Past: Unlike every character who had their backstories flash out, she's the only one whose past had yet revealed. How Richter found her is still a mystery as well who are her birth parents.
  • New Transfer Student: Yui and her transfer to the school the Sakamakis attend helps kick off the plot.
  • Oblivious Adoption: She finds out that she was adopted.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Until her identity as Cordelia’s vessel is revealed.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Wears a pink top and is very feminine.
  • Plucky Girl: To the point of annoyance, at least for the Sakamakis.
  • Preacher's Kid: Her adoptive father is a priest.
  • Raised Catholic: She was raised as a Catholic by her adoptive priest father.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Despite being a protagonist, most of the series focuses on the boys and their backstories.
  • Unlucky Everydude: After her father moved abroad, she is forced to live in a mansion with six mysterious vampires.

Sakamaki Brothers

Shu Sakamaki

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Ty Mahany (English), Lucas Gama (Portuguese)

The eldest son. He's intelligent, but a lack of motivation caused him to have to repeat a grade. He particularly hates being dragged into troublesome things. It seems he can sleep well listening to music.

  • Alliterative Name: Shu Sakamaki.
  • Black Sheep: He doesn't care about becoming head of the family.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Shu has very little motivation to apply himself to anything, but he's far more intelligent and perceptive than he cares to let on.
  • Coat Cape: Wears his uniform jacket like this.
  • Covert Pervert: Shu is also somewhat of a pervert and usually teases the heroine about wearing unattractive panties and bras, after she becomes too pushy with him and seeks his attention.
  • Extreme Doormat: Downplayed. Despite Shu being the eldest son, he doesn't take any responsibility to look after his five brothers and the house; he usually just complains about how he has to "deal with their problems." He tends to push this job to Reiji. As such, it's not really about being a pushover but being lazy.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason why Shu is such a Kuudere is because Edgar, his first friend, died during a fire after trying to save his family. After that traumatic experience, Shu secluded himself from the rest of the world.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: He is always seen with his MP3 player attached to a wire that which is wrapped around his neck and with the earphones always in his ears.
  • Held Back in School: He's 19 and is still in his third year of high school.
  • Hikikomori: Shu rarely ever leaves his room.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he's aloof and as rude to Yui as his brothers are, Shu doesn't do anything outright cruel to her.
  • My Greatest Failure: Edgar was Shu's first friend and the first one who treated him as a person. Unfortunately, he died in a fire (later revealed to be caused by Reiji). The trauma was so great that Shu decided not to attach himself to anyone or anything again. When he meets Yui, he brushes her off at first, afraid to attach to someone else. He later comes to see Yui as his My Greatest Second Chance, at least in his route.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite being the eldest, he looks slighty more youthful than Reiji. In the manga Yui asked him if he's Reiji's little brother. Justified since vampires with later birthdays are the elder brother.

Reiji Sakamaki

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese), David Wald (English), Manuel Perez (Mexican Spanish), Rodrigo Nanal (Portuguese)

The neurotic second son. He treats both the laws of the Sakamaki family and his own standards as important and he forces those around him to abide by those rules, as well. The tone of his voice is kind and polite, but the actual content of what he says is harsh.

  • Conspicuous Gloves: Wears a white one on his right hand.
  • Control Freak: He values rules and demands that they are followed by others.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Despite how rigid he may seem, he still has some sense of humor (albeit a dry one).
  • Faux Affably Evil: Even though he might have a polite, sophisticated way of speaking (which the creators describe to be "butler-like"), his words tend to come with a biting edge.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: The only one of his brothers to wear glasses. He, just like the rest of his brothers, is an extreme sadist (but also has a surprising, extremely masochistic side if triggered right). His particular phrase is schadenfreude (German for "happiness in the misfortune of others"). Sometimes he does or says something in order to get a reaction that amuses him.
  • Insufferable Genius: Reiji will call anyone an idiot if he finds what they do and/or say to be stupid.
  • Neat Freak: He cleans the mansion because no one else will.
  • The Perfectionist: He loves perfection.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Reiji loves to collect tea sets and kitchenware.
  • Rules Lawyer: Shown by how he values rules, Reiji is a strict person towards both himself and those around him.
  • Spot of Tea: Reiji enjoys his English tea, served with some pasta. He even states that he prefers tea rather than drinking Yui’s blood. He changes his mind at the end of his route, in Reiji’s Good End.
  • Stoic Spectacles: The only one of his brothers to wear glasses and is the least openly emotional among them.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: It is stated by Cordelia that if he weren't so stiff, he would look just like his father from back when she first met him. She even says their eyes are similar.

Laito Sakamaki

Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa (Japanese), Blake Shepard (English), Hugo Nuñez (Mexican Spanish), Dláigelles Riba (Portuguese)

The eldest of the triplets. He prefers people’s faces of displeasure, offensive language and the like are his specialty, and his abnormal behavior stands out. It seems to be his habit that when he gets excited, he starts speaking very quickly.

  • Alliterative Family: Downplayed. This only applies to Ayato and Kanato, who are his triplet brothers. The last syllables of their names end in -to.
  • Evil Redhead: A jerkass sadomasochist with red hair.
  • Hidden Depths: Laito is good at interpreting peoples' motives.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: He is a proud pervert and a voyeur, which makes him want to share Yui with others and he enjoys seeing her be preyed on by other men, but then he becomes possessive and jealous and punishes her for it. It is shown he also doesn't mind if people watch when he is messing with Yui.
  • Horny Devil: He's a vampire and a pervert.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Laito is extremely perverted, as well as a sadist like the rest of his brothers. His perverted nature causes him to be suspended from school often. However, underneath all that, he's still meant to be admirable to his playing audience.
  • Nice Hat: Rarely seen without his hat.
  • Parental Incest: He would often have sex with his mother Cordelia, who was into Anything That Moves, but he thought it was "love" and would get jealous of her other partners. When his father found out about it, he locked Laito in the basement. A little later his mother went to see him, taunted him and had sex with Richter, his uncle, in front of him.

Kanato Sakamaki

Voiced by: Yūki Kaji (Japanese), Corey Hartzog (English), Karla Vega (Mexican Spanish), Francisco Freitas (Portuguese)

The middle of the triplets. He always blames people for everything and cries violently, but will cease crying immediately when he gets sweets, which he loves.

  • Alliterative Family: Downplayed. This only applies to Laito and Ayato, who are his triplet brothers. The last syllables of their names end in -to.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Kanato's disturbed, child-like personality is a fact and he has a very... eccentric personality, has since childhood; he's usually staying alone, talking to his dolls, self-harming, or turning others into wax dolls. Around others, Kanato usually acts very spoiled, childish, and demanding, usually emotionally blackmailing them either with tears or hysterical tantrums to get his way; indeed, he is quite mentally unstable, even showing signs of psychotic behavior when angered. He is shown to be moved to tears easily, which is later replaced by loud yelling. And he adores sweets.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He acts like a child and when he doesn't get what he wants, he flips.
  • Son of a Whore: He and his brothers are this since their mother liked to screwed other men in front of them.
  • Sweet Tooth: He really likes sweets and they are one of the very few things that can prevent one of his violent fits.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: His favorite dessert is raspberry pudding, but he likes anything sweet in general.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: As a child, Kanato craved his mother's attention and would self harm just to get it, though these efforts were largely in vain. Kanato did love Cordelia as a child; however, this never reached her because she shows zero interest in him aside from his singing.
  • Yandere: Kanato can freely be categorized as a "yandere type" of character due to the bonds he is capable of having, even if they still are quite twisted. Kanato is childish but overly possessive and even if he's not always thinking clearly, he must decide the future not only for himself but also for the heroine.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Inherited his purple hair from Cordelia.

Ayato Sakamaki

Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), Chris Patton (English), Ricardo Bautista (Mexican Spanish), Fabrício Rinaldi (Portuguese)

The youngest of the triplets. Out of all the brothers, he believes that he himself is the best and the strongest. He loves causing mischief and stirs up a lot of trouble.

  • Abusive Parents: His mother Cordelia forced him to study really hard (often forbidding him to play) and instead of praising his efforts, she would often belittle him and physically abuse him for any perceived failure, telling him that if he wasn't the best, he didn't deserve anything good and he wasn't her son. She also used to throw him in a lake nearby despite his inability to swim as punishment and would watch as he struggled and begged her to save him.
  • Alliterative Family: Downplayed. This only applies to Laito and Kanato, who are his triplet brothers. The last syllables of their names end in -to.
  • All Men Are Perverts: To a lesser extent than Laito. According to a character interview, the first place he checks when looking at a girl are her breasts.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: In his route, Ayato falls in love with Yui because of her unwavering kindness to him.
  • Big Eater: Ayato is also noted that he eats a lot (though only if it is his favorite food).
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Ayato has a hard time expressing his feelings and he tends to get quickly jealous of anything.
  • Evil Redhead: Ayato is quite the rebel and has a passion for torture devices; such as the Iron Maiden and a device like that can be found in his room, which he uses instead a bed (the spikes are removed).
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: His uniforms right pant leg is rolled up to his knees.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: His green eyes are similar to Cordelia’s and Laito's.
  • Fiery Redhead: When Ayato isn't being a sadistic jerk, he shows a passionate side.
  • Implied Love Interest: All but stated to be Yui's canon partner, given he's front and center on almost every cover and is depicted with her the most often.
  • Pride: He has a lot of it. Ayato is the type who always brags about himself; sometimes commanding everyone to call him "Ayato-sama".
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: He is one of the main characters and happens to have red hair with green eyes.
  • Son of a Whore: Ayato and his brothers are this because of their mother enjoyed sleeping around other guys.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Loves takoyaki.

Subaru Sakamaki

Voiced by: Takashi Kondo (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English), Pablo Mejia (Mexican Spanish), Douglas Guedes (Portuguese)

The rowdy youngest son who often shuts himself up inside of his coffin. Because he finds the other brothers gloomy/troublesome, he takes a rebellious attitude towards them.

  • Token Good Teammate: Among his brothers. He's the only one to actually try to help Yui escape from them.
  • Tsundere: Type A. There is a tsundere side of him that not only Yui can see, but his brothers too, and Laito likes to tease him about it. He's a delinquent type, kind of violent and loves to damage things. He's also an extreme sadist, but despite all that, he can occasionally be sweet.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Downplayed Trope. He doesn't really have a black heart, but he's still a jerk.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Subaru has white hair - though it is often shown to be a light silvery color with pinkish tips.
  • Younger Than They Look: He is the youngest of the Sakamaki siblings.

Mukami Brothers

Ruki Mukami

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (Japanese), Adam Gibbs (English)

Contrary to his courteous behavior, he’s the eldest son who has a cold-hearted feeling to him. Using clever words to skillfully manipulate people, it’s his specialty to proceed in such a way that his own hands are not dirtied.

  • Mark of Shame: As punishment for trying to run away from the orphanage, he was branded on his back like 'livestock'.
  • Orphanage of Fear: He ended up in one. He was treated badly by the other kids and the caretaker because he used to be an aristocrat with a bad attitude. The only friends he made there was Kou, Yuma, and Azusa. They devised a plan to escape and it was successful, at first. The people from the orphanage managed to catch them.
  • Parental Abandonment: When his father became bankrupt, his mother ran off with her secret lover, and his father hanged himself.
  • The Smart Guy: The "brains" of the Mukami family and their leader. Despite his status as a Manipulative Bastard, Ayato tends to mock him for his sometimes forced intellectual manners.
  • Smug Smiler: He always has an intimidating smirk on his face matched with a calm tone.

Kou Mukami

Voiced by: Ryohei Kimura (Japanese), Bryson Baugus (English)

The friendly second son who is playing the role of an idol. While he is very moody and self-centered, his devilish charm seems to appeal to people and he's quite popular.

  • Chick Magnet: Many of his female classmates find him attractive.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Kou was abandoned by his parents and ended up in an Orphanage of Fear. He's heavily implied to have been a former Sex Slave and eventually decided to disfigure himself, gouging out his right eye in order to make himself less appealing to the aristocrats. It didn't work since they preferred him badly injured, and he was nearly Driven to Suicide after admitting to himself that his life was hell.
  • Idol Singer: His job in the human world.
  • Glass Eye: When he was first given his new eye, he described it as a jewel.
  • Magical Eye: His right eye can see into people's hearts and he can tell if they're lying.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His right eye turns red when he uses his ability and his left eye is blue.
  • Orphanage of Fear: He ended up in the same one as Ruki, Yuma, and Azusa. See Ruki's entry for details on their escape.
  • Parental Abandonment: He was abandoned in a sewer.
  • Sex Slave: Implied. To make money for the war going on, beautiful children like him were bought from the orphanage by a "club" and were offered up as merchandise and "entertainment" for aristocrats. He was so in-demand that any wounds he received from previous encounters never healed.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Vongole Bianco.

Yuma Mukami

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese), Andrew Love (English)

The third son who lives by his instincts. He has a huge body and his voice and attitude are also big. Furthermore, he acts out violently on impulse and is lacking a little in class/dignity.

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Yuma is similar to Subaru in this respect. So much so that Reiji points out their similar temperament in VANDEAD CARNIVAL.
  • Personality Blood Types: Type O.
  • Pet the Dog: In the Mukamis' backstory, when Yuma first met Azusa, he found Azusa being beaten by a group of kids, only to drive them off. He then gave Azusa food and refused to hit him in place of the other kids. See Azusa's entry for his reaction to it.
    • He also has a moment in his MORE BLOOD route with Yui when he encourages her to not give up on her dreams.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Inverted. He likes munching on sugar cubes.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His hobby is vegetable gardening.
  • The Reveal: He is revealed to be Shu's friend Edgar who was thought to have died in a fire (later revealed to have been caused by Reiji). He woke up with injuries but had no memory of who he was.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He is always seen munching on sugar cubes.
  • Tsundere: Type A. He became what he is because of the toxic environment he grew up in.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As a child, he was very lively and cheery. After his village burned down with his parents still inside and his amnesia following the incident, he had to become even tougher if he wanted to survive out on the streets with the other members of his gang. He grew violent, rough, and dominating with time.

Azusa Mukami

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio (Japanese), Greg Ayres (English)

The fourth son who is timid, but nonetheless obstinate. Because of that tenacity, most of the time things end up going the way he wishes. He's an extreme masochist who enjoys being wounded.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Azusa has black hair with grey tips and grey eyes in the games, and blue-green hair and purple eyes in the anime.
  • Affably Evil: Azusa is probably the sole person who fits this trope of all of Yui's love interests. He has a twisted yet visible sense of right and wrong; he often tells his brothers not to fight, and he apologizes to Yui when he startles her, deceives her, or feels he must do something against her wishes. Azusa also admits he knows that lying is wrong, but he will lie to make someone happy, to earn a punishment, or to fulfill his older brothers’ orders. He also never uses demeaning nicknames.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Azusa talks in a slow, monotone manner.
  • Babies Ever After: In MORE BLOOD ending No. 1 ("Vampire Ending"), he and Yui have three children. All of them are named after Azusa’s former “friends” and wounds: Justin, Christina, and Melissa.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Azusa is the fourth and youngest son of the Mukami household.
  • Brutal Honesty: Despite the fact that Azusa is willing to lie under certain circumstances, he is also more than willing to call out Kanato for the way he treats Yui, even going so far as to outright tell Kanato he's making Yui unhappy.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: He likes to inflict pain on others and likes others to hurt him although sometimes he hurts himself.
  • Covered in Scars: There are scars on his face and arms.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: While on the street, three kids named Justin, Melissa, and Christine used to beat him up for no reason. He grew to enjoy the pain they inflicted as he saw it as proof that he was alive and there was meaning to his life. This is why he became a Combat Sadomasochist.
  • The Gadfly: Azusa will purposely tease and provoke his brothers to get them to lose their temper and hit him.
  • Mellow Fellow: He has the lowest energy of the entire cast.
  • Nice Guy: Even though he has some masochist/sadist tendencies, Azusa is probably the kindest one out of the entire male vampire cast; he's never condescending towards anyone and is polite to Yui.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a maroon beret.
  • Orphanage of Fear: He ended up in the same one as Ruki, Kou, and Yuma. The other kids in the orphanage beat him up but then he met Yuma, who was the first person who was kind and nice to him and gave Azusa hope for the future. See Ruki's entry for details on their escape.
  • Personality Blood Types: Type A.
  • Rich Suitor, Poor Suitor: In Azusa's storylines, he's portrayed as the Poor Suitor to Kanato's Rich Suitor.

Tsukinami Brothers

Carla Tsukinami

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Josh Morrison (English)

The first blood who possesses both intelligence and reason. However, he hides a secret sadistic violence underneath that. Within his long lifespan, he has a lazy character. For the sake of his own certain goals, he approaches the heroine.

  • Amazon Chaser: In his route, Carla is greatly amused by the amount of courage Yui had every time she was with him, that he unknowingly became attracted to her and fell in love eventually.

  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: White hair with dark reddish-brown and grey fringes at the tips.

Shin Tsukinami

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Houston Hayes (English)

The younger brother of the founders. Because he possesses a high pride due to being a founder, he looks down upon vampires of other bloodlines. Beautiful blood is his preference and he often utters narcissistic remarks. Ordinarily his words are polite, but when he loses his temper his speech will become violent and his speech will often contain hurtful or insensitive words.

  • Animorphism: As a founder, he can transform into a wolf, snake, bat and an eagle. However, he prefers his wolf form.
  • Big Brother Worship: Zig-Zagged. He respects his older brother as the current king, but doesn't plan to always live in his shadow and waits for the moment to become the alpha instead. He admires Carla, but also holds a deep grudge against him which he hides to the very last moment until he is more confident that he has a chance to win.
  • Conspicuous Gloves: Wears black ones with his school uniform.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: He's a blonde with gold eyes.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wears one over his glasses.

Karlheinz's first wife. She is the mother of the triplets: Laito, Kanato, Ayato.

  • Abusive Parents: To all her children, in varying degrees. From initiating Parental Incest with Laito to ignoring Kanato unless he was signing and being incredibly hard on Ayato, it's safe to say Cordelia is far from being Mother of the Year.
  • Alpha Bitch: She used her status as the first wife as well as the Demon Lord's daughter to torment Beatrix by degrading her and trying to prove that her children were better than Beatrix's.
  • Bastard Bastard: In Dark Fate, it's revealed that Cordelia is the illegitimate daughter of the Demon Lord and a mistress.

However, in reality, Karl actually was after her blood for project and was only pretending to love her so she'll marry him and give'll him children with her blood. However, it's still completely averted since she still was abusive towards her children and put them through Hell throughout their lives.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Just like her paramour Richter, Cordelia has a bad case of this. She's quick to sneer at the other wives for thinking Karlheinz actually loves them, yet she abused and pushed Ayato too hard, depriving him of his childhood just so she could impress her husband. She even started an argument with Christa that turned into a fight when Christa scoffed that Karlheinz was just using Cordelia, showing how badly she craved his affection and approval.

Voiced by: Yuki Tashiro (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English), Martha Ramírez (Mexican Spanish)

Karlheinz's third wife later revealed to be his cousin as well. She is Subaru's mother.

  • Flower Motifs: White roses symbolize her innocenes and purity as well being wilted after being using by her husband.

  • Kissing Cousins: With Karlheinz.
