Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche/Rin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/riliane_3474.jpg
"Now, bow to me!"

The ruler of the country of Lucifenia and the focus of the "Pride" arc in the Seven Deadly Sins Series. She causes many bad things in her tyrannical rule, including imposing heavy taxes, ordering the execution of her captain of the guards after he smuggled food out of the country to help poor farmers during a famine, and executed the genocide of the people of Elphegort after getting jealous of one of the girls there.

Represented by: Kagamine Rin

  • Angsty Surviving Twin: After Allen dies.
  • Arranged Marriage: With Kyle, arranged by their parents.
  • The Atoner: After the events of the Story of Evil; all alone, she lives with her guilt for the rest of her life in a monastery, taking care of orphaned children. She also helps Clarith plant the New Millennium Tree, aka Michaela, the girl she ordered killed.
  • Bad Boss: See Disproportionate Retribution, being a servant in the Lucifenian Royal Palace is literally "risking one's neck."
  • Big Bad: Of the Story of Evil. Except she's not.
  • Big Brother Bully: She used to be a female version of this to Allen when they were six, albeit only because she was possessed at the time and being manipulated by Presi.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Later on, after joining the Held Monastery, she comes to Yukina's rescue when the girl is being attacked by Abyss I.R., stopping her from being consumed by flames from the Marlon Spoon.
  • The Caligula: During her time ruling Lucifenia, being too sheltered to know anything about politics while too homicidal and selfish to care.
  • Character Development: Arguably goes through the most character development of anyone in the series; Riliane started out as a sweet but spoiled little girl and grew into a cruel and ill-behaved tyrant who expected others to do everything for her. The outcome of the Revolution turned her into a humbler, kinder nun in a monastery, regretful of what she'd done to the end of her days. Later, reincarnating into Rin Miroku adds to her character development, as she finally learns how to take initiative for herself. She displays all of this growth in the Master of the Heavenly Yard novel.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Is expected to run an entire country as a teenager.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Towards King Kyle.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She executes people for spilling things on her dress and looking at her wrong, and destroyed an entire country out of jealousy.
  • Enfante Terrible: As the princess of Lucifenia and briefly in her childhood while possessed by the Demon of Gluttony.
  • Even Bad Women Love Their Mamas: She chose to be called a princess out of respect for her late mother.
  • Evil Laugh: Her Noblewoman's Laugh as she demands others bow to her.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: After she repents her hair gets shorter and styled with only a few hairclips.
  • Friend to All Children: Took care of the convent orphans once she became the Mother Superior.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: An absolutely incompetent and homicidally petty ruler; demonstrated with how she tried to destroy all of Elphegort out of jealousy of one citizen.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Appears to do this at her execution. At her actual death, as an old nun, she died peacefully surrounded by the orphan children she took care of.
  • Half-Identical Twins: With her long lost twin brother, Allen, to the point where they pull a successful switch at the end to spare her life.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Allen sacrifices himself to save her.
  • Incoming Ham: "O ho ho ho ho! Now, bow to me!"
  • It's All About Me: One of Riliane's most famous character traits is her selfishness; during her reign this is amped up to homicidal levels where she believes she is literally the only important person in the country. Even after she's exorcised of her demon she remains a little self-centered, just not unlikably so. It's even Played for Laughs in the Master of the Heavenly Yard novel, where rather than sacrifice herself to save the world she quite naturally expects (and demands) that Allen Take a Third Option.
  • Jerkass: Verbally or physically abuses everyone on top of being a tyrannical despot.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is also friendly to a lucky few, most noticeably Chartette and Ney.
  • Lack of Empathy: She cared little for other people except those she knew personally, although after her exorcism she begins to care about others a great deal, hoping for peace after planting Michaela.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Her forgetting Allen was a result of amnesia caused by exorcising the Demon of Gluttony out of her as a child.
  • Lonely at the Top: Her Freudian Excuse. She believes that showing her true self and crying will just make those around her consider her weak, but as a result feels terribly lonely and estranged from people, trying to fill the void by being a spoiled brat.
  • Machiavelli Was Wrong: She rules by fear alone, with many of her ministers either agreeing with her or being executed. La Résistance doesn't need to try hard to find supporters, even inside her own castle.
  • Meaningful Rename: Drops the lengthy and sophisticated sounding title she has as a monarch for the much more humble "Rin" to hide her identity when she lives in the monastery.
  • Mistress and Servant Boy: She's the mistress to her servant Allen, and while she's younger than is typical and more evil than just an Ice Queen, she does fulfill the relationship dynamic.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After realizing that her own brother sacrificed himself to save her.
  • Narcissist: Well obviously.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: At the very beginning of her song she lets out a high, crowing laugh.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Kyle breaks up with her, with disastrous results.
  • Oh, Crap!: After joining the monastery she understandably has a strong reaction to Germaine coming to visit, panicking and dropping the tea she was serving.
  • Off with His Head!: She gets her head cut off with a guillotine just like she had done to so many others, only not really since her brother switched places with her.
  • The Ojou: The bratty variety. She was called "oujo-sama", which means "princess", instead of the typical "ojou-sama" (young mistress) though.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: As the revolution is in full swing and she knows that she and Allen are about to die, she starts talking to Allen about...her insecurities. You know things are going downhill when someone as vain, selfish and stubborn as Riliane is being so open about herself. She even drops her lofty pronoun.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Had a bright yellow dress with tons of frills.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: She begs this of Allen when he's preparing to switch places with her in the Revolution. By that time, however, she's been locked into her room and has no choice but to leave him behind.
  • Princesses Rule: Invoked. Refused to be called queen until she came of age out of respect for her mother.
  • Royal Brat: A princess who was spoiled absolutely rotten.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: She commits them all, making her the nastiest of the Seven Deadly Sins Series characters. Aside from being prideful (what she represents, and the demon she is possessed by), she was also greedy (heavily taxing the poor needlessly), slothful (preferring to have people like Allen do all the work), gluttonous (to the point where she makes a miniature castle out of cake), lustful (for Kyle), envious (of Michaela, for stealing Kyle's affection), and wrathful (her envy leads her to order the Green Hunting).
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Was very selfish, contrasting with her self-sacrificing brother.
  • Smug Snake: Fittingly enough, possessed by Pride; she doesn't understand not only that her people's hatred for her overrides their loyalty to the d'Autriche family line, but that they're strong enough to beat her soldiers and the mercenaries protecting her.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Displays this in the novel, killing multiple people for the most minor offenses. Another example in the manga is seriously threatening to cut Allen's head off for not letting her win a game.

Allen Avadonia/Alexiel Lucifen d'Autriche

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/allen1_1731.jpg
"If it's to protect you, I will even become evil"

Riliane's servant and twin brother, though she has long forgotten he's the latter. Separated from his sister in childhood, he dedicates himself to her protection no matter the cost, and is the most loyal of all of Riliane's servants. Even past his sister's reign, he continues to have a sizable impact in the Story of Evil and indeed the Evillious Chronicles on a whole.

Represented by: Kagamine Len

  • Alliterative Name: Only his adopted name, starts with two As.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Kind of, having a larger ability to impact the world than the average ghost, thanks to Sickle.
  • Battle Butler: Excels at fencing, and acts as Riliane's personal servant.
  • Big Brother Instinct: To the extreme, protecting Riliane at all costs. Though, he's the younger one.
    • This attitude is increasingly examined as the series goes on, with Allen repeatedly questioning if he's really right to protect Riliane in light of all she does and what the heck made his devotion so strong in the first place. At one point in the Heavenly novel he questions if he might have been unintentionally brainwashed to protect Riliane by his upbringing.
  • Blessed with Suck: The Black Box he's in serves as some sort of Akashic Records, giving him most of the information on the world and its events. However, he's still trapped in it, and is unable to enter the Heavenly Yard to meet with his past family and friends.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: With Michaela, only able to blurt out his feelings for her while she's dying. On a sadder note, when he saw his dying mother for the last time, she told him she loved him but he was too timid to say it back.
  • Childhood Friends: With Chartette.
  • Child Prodigy: Noted as being a genius in fencing, although not able to match Leonhart in strength.
  • The Chosen One: He's described by Sickle to be an "irregular" existence; Banica also claims he's immune to demonic influence in the Seven Crime and Punishment story.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Unable to win in a fair fight against Leonhart, he has his wine drugged beforehand.
  • The Comically Serious: When placed in a comedic situation, he's usually the only one who keeps up a serious demeanor.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When he's not The Comically Serious or in a serious moment, he's this.
  • Declaration of Protection: Promises to protect Riliane even if everybody else hates her.
  • Dirty Coward: All There in the Manual says that since nobody knew of his Undying Loyalty to Riliane, the USE's history books remember him as a coward who was the first to abandon the princess while the revolution was in full swing.
  • The Dragon: To Riliane, in the grand scheme of things.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Subverted. Those who had met either Riliane or Allen before (Germaine, Kyle, Keel) notice that the "princess" in the cell is not the Daughter of Evil. Also, York (one of the revolutionaries) notes the princess they caught is "a little masculine/tomboyish"
  • False Confession: He confesses to Kyle in jail that he killed Michaela, despite the fact that he didn't even know who did it.
  • Half-Identical Twins: With his twin Riliane, whom he's able to successfully pass for so that he gets executed in her place and she lives.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Lets himself be executed in place of his sister, so that she may live and become a better person; doing so also prevented further political conflict in that the kingdom still had a scapegoat to execute and appease the wrath of the people.
  • Historical Villain Upgrade: In-universe. While Yukina made sure that her novel showed the true events, most Evillious historians remember him as a Dirty Coward who abandoned Riliane to save his own hide during the revolution; when Gallerian Marlon heard the true events, for example, he was fascinated but skeptical of its validity, despite Ma insisting it was true. Could double as a case of Written by the Winners.
  • Honor Before Reason: When he's fighting, he always wants to stick to a swordsman's code of conduct (such as making sure your opponent is armed) rather than doing what it takes to win. Leonhart chides him for this in their duel, and later in the Heavenly Yard novel Gammon shoots at him in the middle of their swordfight.
  • I Am Who?: Doesn't realize he's special until Sickle tells him so.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's painted as a selfless, tragically evil character in the songs, but in the novels his selflessness for his sister is downplayed and more of his day to day sarcasm and standoffish nature shows through; usually he's only nicer to those he knows personally (Riliane, Michaela, Chartette and Germaine for example). Even then it depends on the situation. Despite this, though, he's a fourteen-year-old kid set in a horrible situation and you can't really blame him for being a bit caustic.
  • Lady and Knight: He's the black Knight sworn to protect his dark Lady, although Riliane doesn't know how deeply devoted he is to her and just has him doing her personal menial work.
  • Love at First Sight: To Michaela.
  • Love Martyr: To the point of sacrificing his life for his sister. He finds himself questioning this attitude a lot, especially later.
  • Mistress and Servant Boy: Most of the time this is Allen's relationship to Riliane, however much he plays it up (although they do become quite close over time.)
  • Morality Pet: To Riliane—the audience is meant to believe more in her atonement from her sins because he sees good in her (even if it never shows itself until after he's dead.) The revised version of the novel also has a scene in which he's able to convince her to stop warring with Elphegort, because he threatens to leave the palace if she doesn't.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Briefly considers killing Kyle for breaking Riliane's heart
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: This is his relationship with Riliane, defending her and working to keep her happy despite the fact that her opponents are the good guys and her demands are all incredibly selfish. This attitude is even justified to him by Mariam, who says that adults should be the ones worrying about politics and he can just continue to serve his sister. Allen justifies it to himself by thinking that at least someone should be on Riliane's side if no one else is.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Says this to Gast when he catches him staring at Riliane. Given the Venom Mercenaries' reputation for sexually harassing women, it's reasonable for him to assume so. Although in this case it's because Riliane resembles Gast's dead little sister.
  • The Narrator: He's this in Cloture of Yellow for the most part, and is the narrator for the "Seven Crimes and Punishments" album booklet.
  • Off with His Head!: His eventual fate.
  • The Omniscient: Learns the entire history of the Third Period while inside Black Box. However, his knowledge is strictly limited to quantitative data.
  • Pals with Jesus: The reason he's able to interact with the world of the living after his death is because Sickle, the god of creation and Master of the Heavenly Yard, has a soft spot for him and listens to his whims.
  • The Promise: Promises Riliane twice to always protect her, once when they're children and again when they're teenagers.
  • Rousseau Was Right: When not caught up in the politics of the time and his cruel sister's whims, Allen's better nature usually shows through; as a child he was demonstrably selfless and as a spirit he's actively on the side of good, even up to working with the sun god to save everyone in the Hellish Yard.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Kills Leonhart, his adoptive father because, among other things, he heard from Ney that he planned for Riliane’s assassination.
  • Servile Snarker: Although he isn't dumb enough to snark in front of Riliane, instead only doing so internally, it's a different story for his fellow servants.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Kinder than his sister, though he became a little more selfish later in life.
  • Stepford Smiler: Pretends to be happy when doing some pretty nasty things for Riliane’s sake.
  • Take a Third Option: Repeatedly is given choices and a third option to pick between them. He refuses this in the VG version of the first novel when Mariam suggests that, rather than protect the old regime or let the revolutionaries dethrone the monarchy, he kill Riliane himself and use his royal lineage to become king.
    • Later in the series Allen recalls a memory of when he was four and his father gives him a choice between buying one of two dolls in glass bottles: a knight, which he wants, and a princess, which he knows Riliane would want. Allen buys the princess to give to Riliane, but keeps the glass bottle for himself, letting them both have something to play with.
    • At the climax of the series, Allen is given a choice between killing his sister, who is possessed by Ma, to save the world from being destroyed or sparing his sister and letting Ma kill the world. Rather than choose between one or the other, he, with Nemesis' help, defeats Ma without killing Riliane and saves them both.
  • Trauma Button: After his death the guillotine serves as a trigger for Allen, causing him to freak out when Gallerian threatens him with it.
  • Twin Switch: With Riliane at the end of Cloture of Yellow, to avoid her getting executed.
  • Undying Loyalty: His loyalty to Riliane is absolute.
  • The Watson: As the protagonist for the "Seven Crimes and Punishments" story, his mission is to find and talk to all the souls of the seven people most involved with the Demons of Sin to better understand Evillious' history and complete Sickle's mission.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Was fully aware that his actions during his sister's reign were harmful, but felt that they were necessary for his sister's happiness.
  • The Wise Prince: He has far more political savvy then Riliane.

Leonhart Avadonia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leonhart_1719.jpg
"The entire nation is suffering from hunger. In times like these, the captain of the royal guard shouldn't have such luxuries either."

The captain of the royal guard and Germaine's and Allen's adoptive father. Along with Elluka and Mariam he's one of the Three Heroes of Lucifenia, who was famed for his military service during Lucifenia's war for expansion under King Arth. During the reign of Princess Riliane he was killed by Allen after smuggling food out of Lucifenia to help the poor.

Represented by: LEON

  • Action Dad: Adoptive father of Germaine and Allen.
  • Alcoholic Parent: He's a known lover of wine and is often found drunk, the exception being when he's abstaining during the famine. Unlike most fathers of this trope, he isn't abusive save for on one special occasion.
  • Anger Born of Worry: After Allen and Germaine went off on their own to rescue Chartette, they came back to a furious Leonhart—he was so angry, it was the first and last time he struck Allen.
  • The Atoner: His adoption of Germaine and becoming a real father to her, instead of her kidnapper is seen as a kind of penance for how brutal he was towards Beelzenians during the war, her being the sole survivor when he slaughtered her family.
  • Becoming the Mask: Originally he kidnapped Germaine from her dead parents after realizing she was part of the Beelzenian Royal Family, thinking she would make a good hostage. Some years later, he comes to love her as his daughter for real.
  • Child Soldier: According to the timelines, he was a teenager when he entered into service.
  • Courtly Love: Was in love with Queen Anne, but respectful enough of her and Arth to never try anything.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Both eyes and hair are brown.
  • Death Seeker: Allen gives Leonhart a chance to live during their duel by tearing up his sword-bearing arm, neutralizing him as a threat. Leonhart continues attacking anyway, claiming that being killed by Allen will be his atonement for his sins.
  • The Dreaded: In his past he was this to the people of Beelzenia, being the most ruthless killer in Arth's army whom people feared the sight of.
  • Freudian Trio: Of the three heroes, Leonhart is the Ego to Mariam's Superego and Elluka's Id.
  • Happily Adopted: He's not a perfect father but he loves his adopted children very much and it shows.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Steals from Riliane's food reserves during a famine to feed the poor, however...
  • Lady and Knight: He's a white knight to his bright Lady, Anne.
  • The Mentor: He serves as one for Allen, teaching him in the art of swordplay.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: It's heavily suggested in Praefacio of Blue that Leonhart adopted Germaine after killing her real (and innocent) parents in the war to expand Lucifenia, seeing the surviving child and realizing how horrible he'd been acting. Although it turns out his real moment of clarity came after he kidnapped Germaine, as he originally intended to use her as a hostage due to her being from the royal family. As she grew up, though, he came to care about her and then realized what a poor life he'd led.
    • Even earlier than that, when he betrayed the Beelzenian army out of love for Anne, he ended up killing his younger brother. This happened before he actually pledged loyalty to Arth and Anne.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Riliane finds out about his food smuggling and uses it as an excuse to kill him.
  • Oblivious to Love: He is completely unaware that Mariam harbors feelings for him, and is still carrying a torch for Anne.
  • Parental Substitute: For Germaine, whom he adopted when she was two during a war and for Allen, who was sent from the palace because of political conflicts.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His dying showcases Allen's loyalty to Riliane and Riliane's pettiness, but he's well developed from the first chapter of Cloture of Yellow and other appearances. This trope is appropriate, given his name.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Leonhart's name is spelled in English as "Leonhart" in the Trinity album but "Leonhardt" in the manga.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: A downplayed example towards Germaine where he refuses to teach her how to fight and wants her to be more feminine so she'll get married—this despite him knowing for a fact that women can be badass from Mariam and Elluka. He does eventually acknowledge her skills, however, and it's likely the sentiment arose more out of her being his daughter than just any woman.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Apparently was angry enough to strike Allen, the younger child, after they'd risked their lives to rescue Chartette, but couldn't bring himself to hit Germaine.

Mariam Phutapie/Neomaria

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mariam_avi_9008.png
"I am one of the Three Heroes, Mariam Phutapie! Lucifenian soldiers! Show me your loyalty!"

The Head of Maids of Lucifenia and one of Riliane's personal servants. She is good at cloak-and-dagger activity and also one of the Three Heroes (along with Leonhart and Elluka,) gaining fame for her military service during King Arth's war for Lucifenian expansion. Ney Phutapie is her adopted daughter.

Represented by: Miriam

  • Action Mom: Adoptive mother of Ney.
  • Blood from the Mouth: During her death.
  • Child Soldier: She was an army general at 9-years-old.
  • Dying Alone: At the end of her duel with Chartette Mariam is stabbed by her adoptive daughter Ney and she dies, bemoaning being betrayed by everyone she cared about.
  • Easy Amnesia: She was originally Abyss I.R.'s Tyke-Bomb, Neomaria, but a mistake during a mission made her fall off a cliff. She lost all her memories, and named herself "Mariam" based on what she remembered of her original name.
  • Freudian Trio: In the Three Heroes she is the Superego to Leonhart's Ego and Elluka's Id.
  • Foil: To her adopted daughter, Ney. Both were raised since birth by Abyss I.R. as assassins, and later in life became loyal to a fault to a royal figure (Arth for Mariam, Prim for Ney). However, while Mariam suffered from amnesia and broke away from Abyss, Ney only pretended to have lost her memories, and continued working for her until she died.
  • In the Back: On the receiving end. From her own adoptive daughter, no less! Ouch.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: During the Revolution she fights in her head maid dress, although during the Lucifenian Expansion War she fought in more battle-appropriate attire.
  • Lady of War: Considering how graceful in battle she is even in a clunky maid dress.
  • Last Stand: Lucifenia has fallen, Riliane's mercenaries and armies have either been defeated or defected, but Mariam fights to the very end protecting the palace and the princess.
  • Love at First Sight: With Leonhart, back when she still was Neomaria. Looking at him made her feel doubt for the first time in her life. This made her accidentally fall off a cliff.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Seems to be the case for much of the novel, her loyally and dutifully following Riliane even as the country goes increasingly downhill, but ends up being played with in the VG revision of Cloture— she has no loyalty whatsoever to Riliane, just the country itself. When the revolution is in full swing she vows allegiance to Allen instead, telling him that if he had Riliane killed and then endorsed the revolution, he could salvage the monarchy. He refuses and tells her to protect Riliane anyway, which she does begrudgingly.
  • Proper Lady: Always polite and methodical, she knows quite a bit about treating royalty, even Riliane.
  • Punny Name: Mariam's last name is the Japanese spelling of epitaph (epitafu) with the syllables reversed.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She's a Proper Lady and always wears a maid dress, but is very experienced in battle, as the revolutionaries learned when they tried to take the palace.
  • The Stoic: One of the only people Riliane is intimidated by because of this, always wearing a cold expression and ruthlessly efficient.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Despite her stoic personality, she has a very tender and loyal side and tries her best to make everyone happy, even referred to in official materials as a kind-hearted assassin.
  • Tyke-Bomb: Trained to kill from a young age by Irina, who used her as an emotionless assassin.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Arth, who managed to make her change sides in the Lucifenian Expansion War when she was a child. Even long after his death, she still acts as the Head of Maids and protects his children out of loyalty to him.
  • Waif-Fu: Besides knives, kicking and precision is a key part of her fighting style, being able to disarm Elluka and even break Chartette’s BFS.

Minis Stoup

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minis_1365.png
"I’m here! Does her Royal Highness want anything?"

One of Riliane's most trusted ministers, and a frequent target of her petulant tantrums.


  • Ascended Extra: He gets a pretty sweet deal in the novels, for someone who was mentioned in passing in the song. And not played by a VOCALOID.
  • Dirty Old Man: Word of God describes him as a pervert.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He's killed unceremoniously in the rebellion after resisting arrest.
  • Hidden Depths: Adept at pleasing people with gifts, and one of the only people trying to keep the court from panicking during the revolution.
  • Jerkass: A huge jerk to Allen at least.
  • Lean and Mean: In Ichika's manga adaptation, he's depicted as quite tall and thin. His personality is still presumably the same, though.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Apparently, due to being a pervert; Elluka jokes about this in one scene from Wiegenlied of Green.
  • Nepotism: Allen says that his parentage is the only reason he works for Riliane to begin with, as he’s too incompetent otherwise.
  • Upper-Class Twit: He was rich, but not too bright.
  • Yes-Man: To Riliane, mostly out of fear though.

Anne Lucifen d'Autriche

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/annes_8911.jpg
"I want to make a country where children can live with a smile."

The former queen of Lucifenia. A benevolent and well-tempered ruler, after her husband Arth's death the Kingdom of Lucifenia flourished under her reign. Tragically, she too died of the Gula disease.

Represented by: Sweet ANN

  • The Beautiful Elite: Rich, beautiful, fashionable, talented, and incredibly humble and sweet.
  • Blood from the Mouth: A symptom of the Gula Disease.
  • Childhood Friends: With Prim.
  • Good Parents: Knew when to be firm with her children while still providing the love and support they needed, showing concern for when Riliane's eating habits started to worsen and giving Alexiel to Leonhart to keep him from being assassinated.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Gold haired and very sweet, fittingly given her Vocaloid.
  • The High Queen: Was a very good ruler, in contrast with her daughter.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has the blue eyes of an Orthodox Lucifenian and is very innocent.
  • Lady and Knight: She's the bright Lady to Leonhart's white Knight.
  • Last Request: In her last meeting with her son Allen before she dies, she asks that he take care of his sister, Riliane. Although Allen fulfills this to the hilt later, he eventually stops appreciating it and [[Deconstruction questions if his mother may have unwittingly cursed him to be so loyal to Riliane]].
  • Light Is Good: Has pale coloration and a gold dress with white lace.

Arth Lucifen d'Autriche

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arthavi_9993.png
"Such unfounded confidence is my charm..."

The former king of Lucifenia; ambitious and charismatic, Arth was the one responsible for building Lucifenia into the powerful kingdom it is by Riliane's reign, although he passed away from the Gula disease before he could complete his military expansionism.


  • All-Loving Hero: Surprisingly enough. He loves humanity and fights for their sake, according to That King was born from Mud.
    He's not fighting to be loved
    He's fighting out of love
  • Artificial Human: He's a Golem created from mud in image of the deceased Prince Arth. The only one who seems to know this are Anne and himself.
  • Blood from the Mouth: A symptom of the Gula Disease.
  • Child by Rape: Prim charmed him with the powers of the Venom Sword and found out later that she was pregnant with his child, Ney; Arth himself never knew of the child.
  • The Faceless: In official materials he's only seen from the back, with his face only shown in one concept art.
  • Magnetic Hero: See his quote, he's very confident and charismatic, managing to make Elluka and Mariam join him, despite them being on Beelzenia's and Asmodean's side during his expansion war, respectively.
  • Questionable Consent: His affair with Prim, charmed by the Venom Sword.
  • Posthumous Character: On top of being The Faceless, all stories in the series pick up either a few days or years after his death.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He spent his entire reign warring with other countries to expand Lucifenia into a powerful kingdom.
  • Sole Survivor: When he was still a Prince, the carriage he and his parents were on fell off a cliff by the Millenium Tree Forest. Arth was the only one to survive. Or so everyone thought.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His design by Ichika was made with an adult Kagamine Len in mind.
  • Young Conqueror: He actually started his conquests when he was in his teens.

Asan

A servant in the Lucifenian Royal Palace whose brother was a politician executed by Princess Riliane. In revenge he tries to attack the princess, but is quickly subdued.


  • Adaptation Expansion: While he was only introduced in the novels as someone Allen should defeat, the manga gave him a bit of a backstory and a defined personality.
  • Big Brother Worship: He loved his brother dearly, enough to try and murder the ruler of his own country out in the open for having him executed.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Just up and charges at Riliane with a stolen weapon he wasn't experienced with in plain view of people who could, theoretically, have stopped him; he is then easily disarmed.

  • The Resenter: A fierce rival of Genesia and resentful of his higher political status.

Commander of the bastion army of Lucifenian’s Retasan city. She doesn't like being called Riliane because it's the name of the tyrannical princess. Later aids Yukina during her quest to uncover the truth behind the Story of Evil.

Represented by: Lily

  • Action Girl: Is she ever. See The Dreaded and Asskicking Equals Authority.

  • Babies Ever After: In the Fanbook it's mentioned that she married and had two children.
  • BFS: The blade of her lance alone is larger than Chartette's entire sword.
  • Blue Blood: The Mouchet family are distant relatives of the Lucifenian Royal Family, in fact both Lily and Riliane are named after a common ancestor, queen Riliane Roses.
  • Bokukko: Uses ''ore'', and is an undelicate Tomboy well versed in the ways of fighting.

Yarera

"Listen here, eeeh? We're soldier's who've defended this country! That you would take gold from such respectable people like us... don't you find that presumptuous?"

One of the Jerkass Venom Mercenaries that often goes around with his younger brother Zusco causing trouble. His abuse of the Lucifenian populace with Zusco starts a riot that kicks off the Lucifenian Revolution. He later becomes a pirate captain in Praefacio, sent to attack the ship the protagonists are coming to Marlon on.


  • Always a Bigger Fish: After attacking the protagonists, the two of them are killed when their ship is sunk by a ziz tiama.
  • Bad Boss: As a pirate captain he'd rather escape with his own hide rather than return for their other captured subordinates by the end of the battle.
  • Generation Xerox: His grandchildren, Yarera III and Zusco Jr., act just like the two right down to the incompetence.
  • Pirate: Both of them appear as pirates and attack the gang out over the Hark Sea. They even come complete with stereotypical accents they didn't have in their last appearance.
  • Those Two Guys: With Zusco, only marginally impactful on the plot in Cloture as they help spark the citizens' outrage leading to the revolution, but later appear in Praefacio without any significant impact.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: It's suggested they were hired by Prim or, even more likely, Abyss I.R. to kidnap Kyle—after they fail, the ship is immediately destroyed by the ziz tiama sent by the main antagonist.

Zusco

"Do as me big bro Yarera says!"

One of the Jerkass Venom Mercenaries that often goes around with his older brother Yarera causing trouble.

A general in the Kingdom of Lucifenia that appears a handful of times through the novel series, serving during Riliane's reign and after Lucifenia was annexed by Marlon.


  • Frontline General: Leads the attacks on Elphegort and later Asmodean himself, and is often eager to go out on the battlefield.
  • Genius Bruiser: Actually discusses this trope when speaking to King Kyle. In addition to his skills in battle he has a lot of common sense and intelligence, some of it from his years of experience under Arth's reign.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: He certainly doesn't approve of Kyle’s decisions and doesn't believe he's capable of uniting all of Evillious, but he wouldn't defect either—this is the same guy who also carried out the Green Hunting, after all.
  • Old Soldier: He wears numerous scars from countless battles, and fought in the reign of King Arth as well.

Clive

A soldier serving in the Kingdom of Lucifenia. Following Lucifenia's annexation by the Kingdom of Marlon, he often serves at the side of the reigning King Kyle.


  • The Dragon: He's a less intimidating example, as the tyrannical King Kyle's right-hand man and commander of the other palace guards.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Originally fighting for the cruel regime of the "Daughter of Evil," he's inspired by Kyle in his "Karchess" persona to join the Revolutionaries and is loyal to Kyle ever since. The defection becomes less and less of a good thing as Kyle's regime turns out to be about as cruel, although he doesn't defect this time.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Averted when Kyle states he would be humiliated to be seen with him while he's wearing his pink pajamas.
  • Undying Loyalty: He has very strong loyalty to Kyle, despite the king's downward turn in personality and demonic possession, garnered during the Lucifenian Revolution.

  • Big Damn Hero: In Praefacio, she gets between Kyle and a possessed Ney.
    • And then again when saving Yukina from Abyss I.R.
  • Childhood Friends: With Chartette.
  • Cool Big Sis: She is Allen's adoptive sister and she is such a "cool sister" that even her older best friend calls her "big sister".
  • Cleavage Window: Not consistently, though when it occurs it can be Hand Waved by the breastplate being previously damaged.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Has brown eyes and brown hair, like many Beelzenian characters.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: During the third novel she drinks constantly to forget the losses she faced in the first novel. Lily is quick to notice how much she has fallen from her revolution days.
  • Eye Scream: Almost. During her fight with Gast he slashes at her and she loses her vision, but it's later revealed that he just cut her eyelids (which she recovers from).
  • Freak Out!: After Leonhart's death; multiple paragraphs in the books are dedicated to her mental rant against Riliane.
  • Happily Adopted: And she understandably flips out after her dad dies.
  • Healing Factor: She has a downplayed variant of this due to her relation to Banica, being able to heal more quickly from an injury than normal; this attracts Irina towards the possibility of using her as a new medium.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With her older best friend Chartette.
  • Identical Grandson: To her ancestor Banica and subsequently to Maylis Beelzenia.
  • La Résistance: The leader against Riliane.
  • The Lad-ette: The only one who can stand the Blood Grave (a type of wine) other than her father and an accomplished knight on her own.
  • Memetic Badass: In-universe. She is historically known as a hero who overthrew the Daughter of Evil single handedly, and when Irina was using her body as a vessel, people debated that Julia Abelard was a reincarnation of her or that she became immortal. FYI, the second one is half right.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: While she tried to convince herself otherwise, ultimately her motivation for deposing Riliane is not to help the people of Lucifenia but to get revenge for the death of her father.
  • People Puppets: She ends up becoming one of Irina Clockworker's mediums.

  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Chartette's girly girl.
  • Unstoppable Rage: The revolution was driven by her anger towards Riliane for Leonhart's death.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Starts a revolution to save the people from Riliane. Or so she says.
  • You Killed My Father: Her main reason for starting the revolution is because Leonhart was killed for secretly smuggling food to Lucifenia people. When she realizes that the princess she captured was Allen, she pleads him to run, but he pulls this as a reason for her to not forgive him.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Her revolutionary outfit.

Chartette Langley

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chartette_666.jpg
"What do you mean 'another'! I have never broken a fountain before, okay... Just cracked it a bit."

  • Childhood Friends: With Germaine and Allen.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: And it's mixed with super strength!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Germaine.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Because of her carefree personality, she's immune to the Demons of Sin. In fact, when she was little, she convinced one of the bandits who kidnapped her to reform before her rescuers even arrived.
  • Fiery Redhead: Chartette's hair is described as red in the narrative and she's given the energetic personality to match.
  • Freak Out!: Became hysterical when she saw Allen die.
  • Friendly Enemy: She acts surprisingly amicable toward Riliane, and it isn't faked; odd example since Riliane didn't know that they were enemies.
  • Kill It with Fire: Her ultimate fate at the hands of Irina.
  • Nice Girl: Generally amiable, even toward Riliane.
  • Old Friend: To Germaine and Allen.
  • Older Than They Look: She's older than Germaine.
  • Pint Sized Power House: She looks like a young girl but is capable of cracking solid stone on accident.
  • Reverse Mole: Was feeding the Resistance with inside information of Riliane’s doings and plans.
  • Super Strength: Extremely strong, to the point that small tasks are almost impossible for her.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Germaine's tomboy.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She is deathly afraid of The Forest of Bewilderment due to getting kidnapped and held captive there when she was a child, and after Germaine and Allen saved her from it she refused to ever go back. She probably got over it, though, since Germaine's rebellion was stationed there.

York le Corbusier

"Well, let's go. To topple that Daughter of Evil. We can cry and laugh when it's all over."

One of the core members of the Lucifenian Resistance and Germaine's right-hand man. A capable fighter who aids in the Revolution, he also joins the Langley Troops after Lucifenia's annexation from Marlon.


  • Action Dad: Being Sekka's father, he fights alongside her in the Resistance.
  • Berserk Button: Seeing Yarera and Zusco sexually harass a waitress sends him into a rage; having a daughter, himself, it's not hard to see why.

York's daughter, one of the core members of the Lucifenian Resistance. Joining the Resistance since the beginning, she aided in the Lucifenian Revolution but was injured during battle. She later married fellow Resistance member Minage.

  • La Résistance: One of the founders of the Lucifenian Resistance.

Mark

"Palace information, right? To accomplish that, we could take advantage of the opportunities."

  • Killed Offscreen: His death is skipped over from the start of the Revolution to the Resistance members taking the royal palace.

Kyle Marlon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kylenew_6948.jpg
"I’m proud of my position as king. One word from my mouth can either save my country or plunge it into Hell. It's a heavy responsibility. Although I walk the path paved by my mother, in the end, she is still unsatisfied."

The king of Marlon and the only son of the Marlon royal family, as well as a major protagonist during the latter half of the Story of Evil. He's Riliane's fiancé, but has no love for her, and instead falls in love with a peasant girl, Michaela; his resultant refusal to marry Riliane is the thing that pushes the Green Hunting to occur. After the massacre, he helps the people of Lucifenia overthrow their tyrannical princess and assumes control over the country.

Represented by: KAITO

  • Big Brother Instinct: Despite all she's put him through, Kyle still loves his sister very much and would defend her no matter what. During his dream of her, he freaked out when realizing she was dying and tried to keep the Demon of Gluttony from taking her soul away.
  • The Call Knows Where You Live: He doesn't want to be a king, and rather spend his time painting. But his mother presses him, makes critics boycott his works, burns all of his paintings, and coerces his art tutor into committing suicide, along with killing his half-siblings who could have potentially been rulers in his place.
  • Childhood Friends: With Keel and Mikina.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: His eyes and hair are blue much like his ancestors.
  • Domino Mask: Wears one during his time as "Karchess" in the Lucifenian Revolution.
  • Evil Costume Switch: After taking a turn for the worse and starting an imperialist campaign in Evillious, he switches out his modest clothes for more regal attire, including an imperial cape.
  • Genre Blindness: Sure, Kyle. Tell the Lucifenian people that their kingdom is better in your care when your mother has more authority than you.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: When he is possessed by the Demon of Pride so Prim could keep him on a leash, his hair becomes slicked-back. After the control's gone, his hairstyle turns back to its slightly messy do.
  • Hearing Voices: As a result of being possessed by Pride he occasionally heard voices coming from his hand mirror, before being exorcised.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He and Keel have been close friends since their youth.
  • Identical Grandson: To Karchess in terms of appearance. He even uses his name as an alias.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He never wanted to be king. Not that Prim would hear anything about it.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: After everything’s over and done with, he and Yukina find each other in Lucifenia and begin living together. It's stated they never marry, although it hasn't stopped fans from speculating.
  • King Incognito: He disguises himself when leading the revolution, using his penname (which is coincidentally the same as his ancestor who killed Venomania) and wearing a mask so no one knows that he has something to do with the revolution.
  • Love at First Sight: Like Allen, to Michaela. Unlike him, he acts on it. But only because the Demon of Lust was clouding his mind.
  • Loving a Shadow: Yukina states that he's still hung up on Michaela during their journey to Calgaround, several years later.
  • Maybe Ever After: He's stated to have lived with Yukina years after the events of the Story of Evil, but their relationship isn't clarified beyond not being marital.
  • May–December Romance: All of his "romantic" relationships in life were like this. His First Love was his art teacher Margaret who was obviously older than him and years later he got engaged to Riliane, who was 12 years younger than him. He also ends up falling in love with Michaela, who seemingly appears to be 16 but is much, much, older.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When he realizes that everything he has done has furthered his mother’s plot to be the sole ruler.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: To Ney when she dies.
  • Puppet King: He might be the king, but everything concerning the kingdom is his mother's decision.
  • Revenge: Much like Germaine wanting to avenge Leonhart, wanting revenge for Michaela's death is one of Kyle's primary motivations for all the bad things he does—the only problem is who, exactly, he deems responsible for it.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Fought alongside Germaine in the Lucifenian Revolution while acting as King and launched an attack against his corrupt mother.
  • Storming the Castle: Twice, once to Riliane's palace and once to the Castle Hedgehog to see just how far his mother has fallen.

"About what I said... please make it confidential."

One of the maids in the Lucifenian Royal Palace, having been adopted by one of the Three Heroes, Mariam Phutapie. She is known among her fellow maids as being timid or easily worried, but is also a real gossip among her colleagues.

Represented by: Akita Neru

  • Ax-Crazy: Had one of the highest body counts in the series.
  • Bastard Bastard: Of King Arth (Riliane and Allen’s father).
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Was originally a sweet little girl until her mother turned her into an assassin.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's not as innocent or kind as she seems. see Faux Affably Evil and Ax-Crazy.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Her hair and eyes are both gold; this is notable since In the past, Gretel always had blue eyes.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Meeting Kyle just before she's absorbed by the Demon of Gluttony, Ney reverts back to her innocent state as Gretel's soul. She apologizes for all the things "Ney" did in her life and hopes they and her other half-siblings can be friends in a next one.
  • The Dragon: She serves as one to her mother, Prim.
  • Easily Forgiven: Allen forgives her pretty easily for telling Riliane that Allen knows where Michaela is, as well as that, earlier, Leonhart was the one smuggling food from the palace. On a darker note, Kyle also forgives her quickly for everything she'd done on the grounds that she's his sister and legitimately insane.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Is clearly seen in her illustrations in the latter two Daughter of Evil novels.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Ney as Gretel realizes that she's done horrible things, but she also realizes that she can't make amends in her current life; even worse, the demon of Gluttony denies her the chance to be reborn freely, preventing Ney from being reborn with her siblings like she had hoped. Topping it off, around the time Ney is telling Kyle this in a dream, Abyss kills her as she sleeps.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Her personality while she was posing as a maid was meek and soft-spoken, although she really liked to gossip. Our first glimpse at her real personality is when she kills Michaela, where she is loud and sounds deranged and gleeful to have been able to please her mother's wishes.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She used to wear small pigtails on either side of her head when she was a little girl, though it's hard to see by the rest of her long hair. They emphasize her innocence in that time, before being completely broken by the Demon of Gluttony.
  • Reincarnation: She's the true reincarnation of Gretel in the Story of Evil, thanks to Abyss I.R. meddling with fate.
  • Tyke Bomb: She was raised like this by Abyss I.R., who carried out experiments on her with the Demon of Gluttony.
  • The Un-Favourite: She's this in comparison to her half-brother Kyle, her real mother Prim barely even acknowledging her.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her true nature is a spoiler for everything in the Story of Evil past Riliane's execution.

Prim Marlon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/prim_139.jpg
"So naturally it was my responsibility as a mother to eliminate distractions."

The queen dowager of Marlon and mother of Kyle Marlon, as well as an old childhood friend of Queen Anne. She manipulated her son's life to make him a strong champion for the Kingdom of Marlon, regardless of his own wishes.

Represented by: Prima

  • Abusive Parents: Her treatment of both her children was absolutely awful, between abusing her power so that she can force Kyle to become king and emotionally manipulating Ney into becoming insanely desperate to please her. The latter bites her right back in the end, though.
  • Antagonist in Mourning: After learning that Anne has passed away from the Gula disease, Prim cries all night long because she would never be able to have her proper revenge.
  • Big Bad: The real one of the Story of Evil
  • Big Bad Friend: She and Anne (Riliane and Allen's mother) were friends when they were young. The friendship was destroyed over Prim trying to poison Arth, although it seems like Anne at least tolerated Prim again later on since it wasn't proven.
  • The Chessmaster: Manipulated everything in the Story of Evil.
  • Childhood Friends: With Anne.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Anne, her best friend, married the man they both wanted (Prince Arth Lucifen), and after being accused of trying to poison Arth, she decided to make Anne's life miserable. She seduced Arth with the Venom Sword, then had him killed. After Anne died, she decided to screw over her children and make sure Riliane died in despair with a revolution, and seizing Lucifenia, as well as the rest of Evillious, for herself. Needless to say, she goes a bit overboard for the sake of revenge.
  • Evil Matriarch: Her treatment of her children as tools to further her goals makes her fit this trope to a T.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Manipulative, petty and willing to make her country enter two wars in the span of 5 years. Kyle himself calls her a demon in "Handbeat Clocktower."
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Having Ney be so devoted to pleasing her did not end well when Prim refused to even acknowledge her existence while she was busy talking to Kyle.
  • It's All About Me: During her Motive Rant. According to her, everything Arth or Anne did in life was made to spite or humiliate her.
  • Lack of Empathy: As an HER she has no ability to empathize with other people, something that contributes greatly to her pettiness and cruelty.
  • Manipulative Bitch: "Twiright Prank," Arth's death, Riliane's fall, the Marlon occupation in Lucifenia and Marlon's war with Beelzenia were all staged and planned by her (with some help from Abyss I.R.)
  • Master Poisoner: As a member of the Rogzé family she learned all about poisons from her father and made liberal use of this knowledge, like when trying to kill Arth.
  • Motive Decay: Her original plan was just to make her former best friend Anne miserable. After she died, her plan moved on to ruining Riliane, as well as conquering all of Evillious.
  • My Beloved Smother: Towards Kyle. She wants him to be king, and will crush anyone who opposes, even Kyle himself. This is in contrast to her treatment of Ney, who she ignores unless she needs to use her.
  • No Immortal Inertia: A downplayed variant; Prim isn't proven to be immortal, but Abyss I.R.'s magic made her look very youthful for her age, which fades away after Ney kills her.
  • Older Than They Look: Kyle makes mention of how, even though she's well into her 40s, she still looks incredibly youthful (even more so than when he was a kid.) This is a result of Abyss I.R.'s magic.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Has a purple dress with a wide-framed skirt crossed in ribbons pinned with emeralds.
  • Skewed Priorities: Who cares whether or not she tried to poison Arth (she did)? The real problem is how Anne dared to suspect her, of all people!

Michaela

Clarith

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clarith_4399.jpg
"I’m sorry for being alive"

A white-haired girl descended from the Netsuma Clan and often bullied for her heritage, also a descendant of Venomania. She’s a lonely peasant girl that is a bystander of the Green Hunting and the Lucifenia Revolution, befriending its target Michaela.

Represented by: Yowane Haku

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Was bullied for her Netsuma heritage.
  • Apologises a Lot: Hell, it's her Catchphrase.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: In a same-sex example, Clarith is a brooding girl to Michaela's gentle girl.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm sorry for being alive" and other variations on apologizing.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: See Cowardly Lion.
  • Character Development: Her character arc is about growing from a shy, clumsy, and emotionally damaged girl who can't keep up with other people to a much calmer, more open, and hopeful young lady who serves as a mentor figure to others, like Rin.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: In a country of people who wear green or brown, she's the only one who wears white.
  • Cowardly Lion: She constantly refers to herself as "cowardly" and "weak" in the novels, but is actually more courageous than she gives herself credit for.
  • Dead Guy Junior: In the Sloth novel it was revealed that she found and raised a baby who was also a member of the Netsuma Clan... She named him Ayn.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: After the Green Hunting. "Gone, everyone's gone..."
  • Evil Stole My Faith: Clarith says that God can't exist if her mother is allowed to suffer a slow and maddening death by Gula Disease, although her mother's statements suggest she's held these beliefs even before the diagnosis. She gets better after befriending Michaela, establishing her own monastic order, the Sisters of Clarith.
  • Freakiness Shame: She's ashamed of her white hair, despite Michaela's insistence that it's beautiful.
  • Guilt Complex: Apologizes for everything and feels guilt for her very existence. Especially after the Green Hunting.
  • Happily Adopted: But her grief is not from the fact that she was orphaned.
  • Heroic Albino: Although not really an albino, she fits the popular representation of one.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: To an extreme degree. She believes that the world would be a better place if she were never born.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Her whole life she was shunned for her race. When she begins to believe in god, the only thing she prays for is a friend.
  • Innocent Bystander: It’s even "The Daughter of White's" English title.
  • Internalized Categorism: She views her white hair as something that makes her inferior to everyone else.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Yukina after her employ into the Freezis household.
  • Missed the Call: A positive version. The knife she planned to stab Riliane with was the vessel of Wrath, which was previously represented by the color white. Had she gone through with killing the Daughter of Evil with the knife she may have become to Wrath what Venomania was to Lust or Banica to Gluttony. Luckily for her, Allen's spirit snaps her out of the demon of Wrath's control by making her realize it's not Michaela who's spurning her to kill.
  • Mystical White Hair: As a member of the Netsuma Clan she has white hair, and Elluka points out that she does appear to have some magic potential.
  • Not So Different: What ultimately makes her decide not to kill Riliane. The villainous, cruel tyrant who took Michaela away from her was just a lonely girl with zero self worth, like she was in the beginning.
  • Oblivious to Love: Poor Ayn, not that she would have been attracted to him anyway.
  • Oh, Crap!: Yukina notices she has this expression once she realizes that Germaine Avadonia, Yukina's guest in the monastery, is the woman who led a whole Revolution to kill Riliane—and Rin is Riliane.
  • Only One Name: The natives from Elphegort don't have surnames, unless you're nobility.
  • Parental Substitute: Just like her adoptive mother did, she became a foster mother to an orphaned Netsuma.
  • Shrinking Violet: The girl is painfully (and adorably) shy.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: She and Riliane.
  • Token Yuri Girls: With Michaela.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: She decides to not kill Riliane when she discovers that "Rin" is the Daughter of Evil because they were both lonely.
  • Woman in White: See Color-Coded for Your Convenience.

Represented by: Hiyama Kiyoteru

  • Artificial Human: He's a Ghoul Child created by Seth Twiright that was put in cryo-stasis in Marlon during his infancy, waking up after an earthquake. This doesn't seem to have stopped him any in building a life for himself.
  • Benevolent Boss: To Clarith and Michaela.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's kind and benevolent to anyone he considers family, but that won't stop him from cheerfully trying to kill Kyle if he thinks he's making a move on his daughter (although Played for Laughs). It's also implied he was a lot shadier in his youth (probably owing from being a Ghoul Child with HER).
  • Childhood Friends: With Mikina and Kyle.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Mikina.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Both a deep brown.
  • Elopement: When Keel was forced to flee Marlon, he was joined by a pregnant Mikina.
  • Foil: A street-smart head of a vast intelligence network and a responsible father, he's a foil to the more genre-blind and rash-acting Kyle, particularly noticeable in Praefacio of Blue.
  • Good Parents: A doting and wise father who loved and supported his children in all their endeavors, whether it was Yukina's novelist career or Shaw following in his footsteps.
  • Happily Married: To Mikina.
  • Henpecked Husband: As people would often say "The merchant, Mr. Freezis, is under his wife's thumb". It's downplayed in their actual relationship, but he does tend to do whatever she asks without question. Which is unfortunate for him since she's working for Abyss I.R.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He and Kyle have been close friends since their youth.
  • Megane: Wears a style of pince-nez glasses.
  • Nice Guy: He didn't hesitate to give Michaela and Clarith a job and was a very good boss to them. He was also a loving husband to Mikina and devoted parent to all of his children.
  • Older Than They Look: He's around Kyle's age, but while he was an infant he was frozen in stasis for centuries, waking up during an earthquake that affects his machine.
  • Overprotective Dad: He's very, very protective of his daughter. He even once beat Kyle up for hugging Yukina, assuming that Kyle was making a move on her.
  • Shotgun Wedding: Married Mikina because she was pregnant with Yukina.
  • Tap on the Head: In the fourth novel, by Abyss. It’s what causes him to retire early and eventually causes his demise, thanks to Reality Ensues.
  • Uncle Pennybags: Rich and incredibly nice. This is really saying something, considering what the other rich people in Evillious are like...

Mikina Freezis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mikina_9497.jpg
"Jewels, gold coins, a mansion, servants... I made the decision to abandon all of it for those two."

Represented by: SF-A2 miki

  • Benevolent Boss: To Clarith and Michaela; even though she did not initially trust the latter, she warmed up to her a lot by the time the Green Hunting occurred. However, Mikina had to tell Ney where Michaela was hidden.
  • Blue Blood: She came from the noble Sfarz family.
  • Childhood Friends: With Keel and Kyle.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Keel.
  • Demonic Possession: She was briefly possessed by the Demon of Greed before Prim exorcised her, and is possessed again during the climax of Praefacio. A rare case in this series where she made a contract with the demon on accident and it was not in her long enough to affect her personality.
  • Elopement: Mikina fled with Keel to elope with him when her father didn't approve.
  • Fighting from the Inside: After Abyss I.R. hijacks her body, she almost tells Yukina everything that her beloved mother had been doing before that point, only for Mikina to put a stop to it. It only resulted in Abyss forcing her to confess herself.
  • Foil: With Prim, in Praefacio of Blue. Both of them are mothers from noble backgrounds who do evil for the sake of their children, but while Prim's actions are entirely out of her own narcissism and selfishness, Mikina's were motivated by a desperate desire to protect the ones she loved. Highlighted by both of them having confessions owning up to their misdeeds in the novel.
  • Forced into Evil: After being tricked into making a contract with the Demon of Greed, Mikina was told that it would target her family next if she didn't work with Prim and Abyss.

  • Mama Bear: The root of all her problems started when she couldn't control her feelings after her father threatened to kidnap Shaw.
  • Older Than They Look: She's old enough to have three children yet she looks like she still in her late teens or early twenties.
  • People Puppets: When Abyss loses her control on Elluka's body, she turns her attention to Mikina and uses her to steal the vessels of sin from Elluka, kill Ney, and come very close to killing Yukina. Mikina is unable to break free until Abyss is defeated.
  • Shotgun Wedding: Mikina became pregnant around the same time that she fled with Keel.
  • Stepford Smiler: Hides the pain of accidentally killing her father, burning her son’s back and acting as Prim's spy while smiling kindly to everyone.
  • Tragic Bigot: She has a hatred of Elphes as a result of the cruel discrimination she and Keel faced from many of them, and because of their Elphe nanny betraying her to her father, allowing him to try and kidnap Shaw.

Shaw Freezis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/example2_7162.jpg

Yukina's little brother and Keel Freezis' only son, the heir to the Freezis Firm and eventually its successful head long after the Story of Evil.

Represented by: Tsukuyomi Shouta

  • Big Good: By the "Sloth" era he'd become this as the leader of the Freezis Foundation, with all its vast resources at his fingertips (which he allows Elluka to make use of.)
  • Cheerful Child: Like all of Keel Freezis' children, and is very well behaved in addition.
  • Child Prodigy: Under his father's tutoring he becomes very skilled in business.
  • A Child Shall Lead Them: Becomes the head of the Freezis Firm at a very young age due to Keel's injury, and doesn't do that bad a job. As he gets older, he turns it into the largest and most comprehensive organization in all of Evillious.
  • Cool Old Guy: Becomes this eventually, and emphasis on old—he makes an appearance in the Sloth era, over a hundred years later, at the age of 116.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: It's played down a bit, but he plays the responsible son to the impulsive and occasionally runaway Yukina.
  • Long-Lived: He lives to age 116 and even then he isn't particularly decrepit. This is because he began to fear death and Michaela, as the New Millennium Tree, expanded his lifespan.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: Averted as, while he is in between Yukina and Aile, since he is the only son he is expected to succeed his father, and both of his parents dote on him to successfully groom him for the position.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Because of his Long-Lived status, he's shown to outlive all of his children, some of his grandchildren, and some of his great-grandchildren (the latter from disease.)
  • Precocious Crush: Had an interest in Gumillia in Praefacio of Blue.

  • Blue Blood: A Duke in Beelzenia from a long line of Beelzenian aristocrats.

  • The Emperor: He's the emperor of Beelzenia—not that Beelzenia is much of an empire by this point—and is a more benevolent example than most with the trope.
