Younger brother of Krichevskoy, and Laharl's uncle. Despite his muscular physique, he talks like a woman and doesn't have the guts to stand up to his own wife. He wears a radiantly colored pink mantle that if you see it once, you'll never forget it. Was once in love with Sakura, but he was turned down.

Tropes associated with Vesuvius:

  • Bumbling Dad: He is whipped by his wife. Not very competent and odd to say the least, even by Netherworld standards.
  • Camp Straight: If the figure of his wife is any indication, then again he did fell for Sakura.
  • Fatal Attractor: Vesuvius seems to have a thing for violent women, such as Yasurl and Sakura.
  • Henpecked Husband: He's completely whipped and subservient to his wife.

Yasurl takes the fun out of funbags.
Vesuvius’s wife, and Laharl's aunt. Back in the day, after Laharl’s mother died, she "took care" of him for a 100 years, and she abused him with her whip. Since then Laharl has hated women with sexy bodies. She is not fond of Laharl being the Overlord because he has human blood running through his veins.

Tropes associated with Yasurl:

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She seems to care for her kids, at least a little.
  • Evil Redhead: She's got red hair and is very evil.
  • Advertisement:
  • Evil Aunt: She's Laharl's aunt and she's extremely evil, to the point of torturing Laharl simply for being half-human.
  • Fantastic Racism: Believes that humans are lower than dirt and proceeds to abuse and "discipline" Laharl when he was younger because of him being half-human.
  • Fetish: She really enjoys abusing people with her whip, even teenage girls.
  • Hair Antennae: She has them, even though she is not directly related to Laharl.
  • Horny Devils: Not confirmed, but her strong resemblance to the succubus class indicates it.
  • Mama Bear: She defends Shas and Kira from Sakura in one book, picture here. Might also double as Pet the Dog considering who it is doing such a nice thing.

Vesuvius and Yasurl's daughter and the younger twin sister of Kira. A rather young demon. Used to share her body with Kira, but he tried to take over her body, so she rejected him. She now “plays” with Laharl a lot, setting up traps to destroy him. She's a tad-bit crazy and is one of Laharl's problems.

Tropes associated with Shas:

  • Ambiguous Innocence: She thinks setting up deadly traps is harmless and fun for everyone involved.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: She is a tricky little demon.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Even though almost every girl in Laharl's harem seem to be physically teenage girls, she's the youngest in appearance. She seems quite fond of him and shows it in her own deadly way.

Vesuvius and Yasurl’s son and the older twin brother of Shas. He's actually a ghost and can take control of Shas's body. Has a sick mind and tried to trick Flonne and Etna; and took hostage of Shas’s body to try to defeat Laharl. In the end, he was purified by Flonne and was sentenced to be a prinny for 100,000 years for assassination attempt to the Overlord. He is currently spending time in Celestia to repent.

Tropes associated with Kira:

  • Child Mage: He uses magic as his primary method of attack.
  • Divide and Conquer: Kira tries to set Etna and Flonne up agains each other by telling each of them that they would make a perfect girlfriend for Laharl, taking advantage of the crush each harbour for Laharl and distracting them from the plan of taking Laharl off the throne.
  • Expressive Shirt: Or may be Expressive Hat. The hat will change expression depending on which twin is in charge of the body.
  • Enfant Terrible: He is a wicked little fellow.

Daughter of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth! and Jennifer. She can identify the difference between Shas and Kira (who is a ghost). She has been fond of Laharl ever since he saved her from Kira.

Tropes associated with Jane:

  • No Sense of Personal Space: There is no such thing as "Laharl's personal space".
  • Petite Pride: She seems happy about her chest size, since it means Laharl won't have an allergic reaction to her.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: Just like her mother, she and her parents do live in America after all.
  • Precocious Crush: She fell in love with Laharl when she was ten, he is over a thousand years old. Though in terms of "demon years," they are around the same age. Demons and Angels live much longer than humans and therefore age much slower.
  • School Uniforms Are the New Black: Whenever she appears, you can bet she is wearing her school uniform.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Her crush on Laharl is unnaturally intense considering he is a irritable and disagreeable young demon who does not appreciate the attention he gets from her at all.
  • Youthful Freckles: She got them in her second appearance.

Flonne's younger sister. Rare kind of angel: she likes money more than love and is the exact opposite of Flonne. She ran away from home. She is fond of Laharl since he's the Overlord, and she is always arguing with Flonne. She came to the Netherworld as an exchange student, but went back to Celestia to become a woman worthy of Laharl.

Tropes associated with Ozonne:

  • Expecting Someone Taller: When Ozonne met Laharl she was disappointed by his looks.
    You're the Overlord? You're tinier than I thought.
  • Friendless Background: Her "alternative" beliefs has most likely not earned her many friends, if any, in the world of Celestia. She grows quickly attached to Laharl, who might have been the first person she had ever met that have similar beliefs to that of her own.
  • First-Name Basis: Overlord Laharl gives Ozonne special permission to call him just Laharl because they immediately hit it off so well.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: She is the sister with her head on ground level.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She is a good person with the best of intentions for the people angels have vowed to protect, yet really unpleasant to be around unless you share her perspective.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She is envious of Flonne in many ways. Flonne's status as a fallen angel is one of them.
  • Grumpy Bear: Milder version, but not if compared to other Celestians.
  • The Heretic: She propagates beliefs that go against Celestia's official dogma and is considered to be a heretic, but she is not excommunicated for it because Seraph Lamington wants to let heretics run free.
  • I Am Not My Father: She is ashamed of even being related to her parents.
    I get goosebumps just from thinking that I'm related to them by blood.
  • Informed Attribute: The narrator claims Ozonne is slightly better endowed than Flonne. The artwork does not back this up.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: According to the narrator, the only thing that distinguishes her from completely resembling a male is the very very slight curve of her breasts.
  • Love Freak: Completely inverted of course.
    Love? What's the use for some insubstantial thing like that?
  • The Resenter: She appears to not only envy Flonne but resent her deeply as well.
  • The Runaway: She ran away from home 400 years ago because she could not stand her parents and their endless worship of love any longer.
  • Sibling Triangle: Both Flonne and Ozonne fancy Laharl.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: She is the exact opposite of Flonne.
  • The Snark Knight: She seems to use sarcasm to cope with her fellow Celetians and her dissension with them.
  • Third-Option Love Interest: Laharl has bunch of girls after him, but Flonne, Etna and Ozonne are the ones he gets along well with.
  • Tomboy: It is mentioned a lot of times that she acts like a guy.
  • Trans Nature: Ozonne wants to become a demon (more precisely a fallen angel) because she does not fit in with the other Celestians and so she can be with Laharl, in fact she thinks marrying Laharl will cause her to become a fallen angel.
  • Tsundere: Towards Laharl. She's notably even harsher than usual when talking to Flonne.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Laharl notes that her eyes are a bit like Flonne's eyes when she's angry, but even more vindictive.
  • The Un Favourite: She seems to think she is, but it is unlikely as their parents seem like good people.
  • Walking the Earth: Does this for 400 years in Celestia.

Terre and Elle
Flonne and Ozonne's parents. Father Terre is always refreshed, and mother Elle is always smiling. Even bigger "Warriors of Love" than Flonne. "LOVE" is their family motto. They made an oath with Laharl to make sure he stays friendly with Flonne forever.

Tropes associated with Terre and Elle:

  • Love Freak: Their entire home is filled with objects that express their worship of everything that has to do with love. They are the parents of the original love freak, after all. Laharl visits them in the third novel. Hilarity Ensues.

A woman looking for rare and legendary swords. She's female, but she likes flat-chested girls. She wears a traditional Japanese Kimono. She carries a Masamune she created out of Caliburn, and she's a Master Swords-woman. She can't use magic but she can use a couple-hundred swords at the same time. She is on a journey to find both Caliburn and Excalibur, because she burns with passion as a 'Sword Maniac'. Her power is equal to that of Laharl, and her life is divided between several other archangels. She has once beaten Laharl. She was once an archangel working under Lamington, but since angels change between male and female depending on the situation, after becoming a Sword Master her male-side dominated her heart. But after she lost to Laharl, her female-side took over, she fell in love with Laharl and now she stays at the Overlord's castle.

Tropes associated with Sakura:

Gwen / The Queen
Wife of the King who ruled the human world about a thousand years ago. Laharl met her when he and Flonne travelled back in time. He became very fond of her since he was aware that she's in fact his mother. After Sakura came to steal the King's Excalibur, she and Gwen went to the future world of the Netherworld. She became Sakura's servant, but she escaped and met Krichevskoy, married, and had Laharl.

Tropes associated with Gwen:

  • Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex: She ended up marrying Overlord Krichevskoy, who was so powerful that he could knock down mountains, freeze oceans and split the ground in two. How they managed to make Laharl is a mystery.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: She married a demon Overlord who most likely was several thousand year old at the time, when she looked no older then 20.
  • Modest Royalty: Both of the outfits she is seen in are modest and simple (by Disgaea standards that is).
  • Proper Lady: Possesses almost all of the characteristics; gentle, strong, virtuous, sacrificing, wise, loving, caring, tasteful, civilized, mannerly, devoted and loyal. Not to mention British. The only exception is that she does not require protection.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: No less than a fighting Queen.
  • Sarashi: A part her soldier outfit.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Again, her soldier outfit. It looks very similar to Laharl's scarf.
  • Second Love: King Krichevskoy.
  • Sexless Marriage: It's not stated directly, but Flonne mentioned that she does not feel any love between Gwen and her first husband, despite Gwen's fierce loyalty. Her second marriage fared better though.

How well does it match the trope?
