The character page for Ephemeral Prince. Be warned; much like the game it's a sequel to, there will be a lot of spoilers.

Several of the characters in Ephemeral Prince also appear in Star Stealing Prince. For tropes that apply to the characters introduced in Star Stealing Prince, see Characters/StarStealingPrince.



  • Parental Substitute: To Canan and Rhea; while Canan's father is still around, her mother isn't and neither of Rhea's parents are around.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Very important to the early chapters, but then she is last seen in Chapter 10. Next time she is heard of is in Chapter 15, where Beliaz tells the protagonists that she's been executed.




Canan's older brother.


Canan and Iain's father.


The Crown Princess of Norin

'The lion'

The former king of Norin
  • The Ghost: He was mentioned several times, but that's about it. In fleeting and permanance, he is long dead by the time the main characters reach Alsan.
  • Posthumous Character: He was killed by Xiri in fleeting and by Soan in permanance before he was ever referenced in the story.
  • Blood Knight: He was so eager to find Worthy opponents to fight that he offered his kingdom and his daughters hand to anyone who managed to beat him in a duel to the death.


Ciran's late wife.
  • Mama Bear: According to Ciran. Apparently her threatening to kill a lord over them wanting to take Canan and Iain away was what got her killed.
  • Missing Mom: Is this to Iain and Canan.
  • Posthumous Character


  • Paper-Thin Disguise: He's actually a demon. Even though his eyes and skin looked human in his disguise, the Pointy Ears should have given it away, as they apparently did for Erio, but all he got were some suspicious looks from lords.



Richard and Vera's daughter.

  • Energy Being: They're actually balls of runes inside of humanoid bodies.
  • Light Is Not Good: They aren't exactly good people, and most lords that are introduced are very antagonistic and even sadistic.
  • Our Angels Are Different: They live in the sky, they control light, and they're supernatural beings. But they don't have wings, and the only physical difference between them and humans is their Pointy Ears and Supernatural Gold Eyes.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Most of their antagonism towards Lina and Edgar was for the sake of preventing a prophecy where their child will destroy the world. Unfortunately, their actions against the couple, Xiri, and Soan resulted in a chain of events that fulfilled the prophecy. And in response, Beliaz resorts to his own extremism to undo their mess.



  • A Hero to His Hometown: The people of Morzin like him, but he doesn't exactly have a lot of fans anywhere else.
  • Bad Boss: To Beliaz, though it's implied that many of the other lords would have treated him even worse.
  • Just Following Orders: He sometimes tries to justify his actions by saying the crown ordered him to do it, and that he doesn't have a choice, even though he's against it. Everyone thinks it's just an act to make himself look better.
  • Master Swordsman: According to Beliaz.
  • People Puppets: Can do this by manipulating the electric signals in the brain.
  • Pet the Dog: He had occasions where he's nice to Beliaz and it's implied that most of the abuse is due to orders from other lords.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • The Dragon: To Rizec.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He tricked Soan into distrusting and eating Xiri in order to trap the latter. Worse yet, he isn't even at the top of the Lord food chain, so there are even more people behind the overall plot.





The lord in charge of the temple of Barina
  • Complexity Addiction: her plan to kill Snowe was to enter his mind, Drag Astra into it, then turn all of Xiri's desire to kill her onto Snowe, causing his power to kill him. This concluded with Snowe getting his throat slit, but erio managed to heal it. It would have been far simpler for her to slit his throat by herself when his guard was down.



Erio's older sister.
  • The Ghost: In Star Stealing Prince and its short stories she is mentioned a few times but she only directly affects the story once and does so offscreen. In Ephemeral Prince she finally makes an appearance.
  • Gondor Calls for Aid: In Star Stealing Prince, Erio calls upon her help in the Sepulcher to save him and his companions. She does.
  • Promotion to Parent: Soria was the one raising Erio before he pretty much went missing.
  • Refusal of the Call: The summons that Erio answered was actually intended for Soria, but she made fun of Edgar and refused to answer it.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Apparently the fact that she's Erio's sister is easy to tell at a glance; they look very similar and even share some mannerisms in common.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: And black sclerae (demon and all.)
  • Tranquil Fury: She's not pleased to have to interact with Snowe, whom she blames for Erio's death, but she's amazingly calm about it all things considered.
  • You Should Have Died Instead: More or less what she's really saying when she tells Snowe that if Erio had just cut him a bit deeper he could be home now.


Soria and Erio's mother.
