Main Characters


"I'm the one who decides my fate, even if I have to will that fate into existence. Make sure to never forget that."
Voiced by: Ryota Ohsaka (Japanese) and Kaiji Tang (English)

The protagonist of the game, Fang is a 20-year old man who cares about nothing except eating and sleeping. He first gets roped into the story after pulling out a Fury and bonding with its fairy, Eryn, out of a desire to wish for some food to eat. After learning that Eryn had lost her memories, he sets out on a journey to collect the furies, not out of a desire to save the world, but simply to help his new friend retrieve what she had lost.

  • Accidental Pervert: Near the end of the game he walks in on Tiara and Eryn bathing. Considering the two of them, the response should be obvious.
  • The Alleged Boss: Of Dorfa nonetheless during the Vile God Route, acting as a figurehead.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: As much as they bicker, he and Eryn really do care about each other a great deal. Various sub-events help cement that throughout the game, though some have more romantic undertones than others.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Has this relationship with both of the main heroines. Though all parties involved would vehemently deny it.
  • Bishie Sparkles: He has a tendency to get these whenever he appears in cut-scenes talking up his supposedly heroic qualities.
  • Big Eater: Throughout most of the game, he just won't stop talking about food. His primary motivation for pulling out Eryn's Fury was thinking he could wish for as much food as he wanted.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Implied to be the reason for his sudden bouts of competence early on; he's a genuinely talented fighter, but he lacks the motivation and willpower to put in the effort.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is constantly made fun of, especially by Eryn and Tiara.
  • Chick Magnet: In Advent Dark Force, there is an ending for all the female protagonists in the party (yes, all of them this time) that involves Ship Tease moments with Fang.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may be lazy and prone to saying stupid things, but when he's motivated to fight he's practically unstoppable. This is actually made into a gameplay mechanic where his special ability is called "Serious Face".
  • Determinator: Whenever he gets motivated to do something, he will do it, even if he has to go back in time and defeat the Vile God.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Fights, defeats and reseals the Vile God with the aid of Eryn.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Is temporarily an antagonist in the Vile God route due to his role as Dorfa's president
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He gets extremely irritated by Tiara and Eryn gushing over Sherman, though he denies that it might be out of jealousy. In one late game event with Eryn he admits (in a roundabout way) to being jealous over how she acts with Sherman.
  • The Hero: While extremely reluctant at first, he gradually becomes more suitable and willing to have this role as the story progresses.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His primary weapon is a sword, and the majority of his skills revolve around them.
  • I Didn't Mean to Turn You On: The fact that his insults arouse Tiara confuses him quite a bit.
  • Idiot Hair: He has a section of hair the sticks out unnaturally from the rest.
  • Idiot Hero: His stupidity is pretty consistent from start to finish however.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: A non-sexual variation of this trope, but when comforting Eryn while she was feeling jealous of his kindness towards Tiara, he tells her that she is the only one he will allow to worry about him.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Tiara's death really hit him hard. But Fang's meeting with Emily and his regret over Apollonius' death is more in lines with this trope.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A Toshiki Inoue's staple. He refuses to go on the journey, and makes Eryn cry. That said, he's not so bad a person, evidenced when he goes out with Eryn out of pity and feeling genuine guilt over ruining Emily's life after killing her older brother Apollonius, driving him to try his best to save him come the second timeline.
  • Laughing Mad: Temporarily at the start of the Evil Goddess route due to the shock of watching Tiara die protecting him.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fang has very high HP, Strength and Vitality, and yet his speed still remains decent.
  • Men Don't Cry:
  • Mercy Kill: During the Final Boss fight of the Goddess Route, he wants to redeem Sherman, but realizes that doing so is impossible due to the Vile God consuming the latter's soul. Thus, Fang has no choice but to kill Sherman in order to save him from a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Morph Weapon: His takes the form of a sword, an axe, a greatsword, a gun, a fist, and a gatling gun.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In the first timeline, he meets Apollonius' sister Emily after killing him, and sees how badly it's affected her. This clearly haunts him, and is the driving force behind his decision to avoid killing in the second timeline.
  • No Kill Like Over Kill: His second Ultimate attack "Force Impact" has him slicing his enemy with a very long energy sword that can be easily seen in orbit.
  • Playing with Fire: His offensive magic techniques are all fire based, and his skills all involve fire as well.
  • Refusal of the Call: Almost immediately refuses to become a Fencer. But Eryn convinces him to accept.
  • Screw Destiny: Firmly believes that he decides his own fate.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: In the first timeline Tiara ends up dying. Fang's prime goal in the second timeline is to prevent her death from occurring.
  • Super Mode: Aside from Fairizing, his special command "Serious Face" boosts his damage output with a 1.5 multiplier. He will use up 30 SP for every normal attack he uses, and the SP consumption of skills and magic will cost 50 percent more than they regularly do.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: In the second timeline, he subscribes to this philosophy after seeing the emotional damage killing Apollonius did to his little sister Emily. This naivete ends up nearly killing him as he tried to recruit Zenke, of all people. He also has to give up on this idea when Sherman loses his soul to the Vile God.
  • Through His Stomach: In the Vile God timeline, Dorfa gets him to be a figurehead president by giving him food.
    Fang: Honestly, I'd kinda lost all my memories at the time. I was starving, but I didn't have any money. They offered to buy me lunch...
    Eryn: So they bribed you with food. I should've guessed...
  • Took a Level in Badass: Fang matures and grows much stronger over the course of the story, especially at the second timeline, where his increased battle prowess impresses his allies more than before.
  • Tsundere: A male Type A. The fact that he cares about the others is pretty obvious, getting him to admit it will take some work, though. Goes doubly so with his relationship with Tiara and Eryn.
  • Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: His interactions with Tiara give off this feel.

    Eryn (Alyn)

"How many times do I have to tell you!? I'm your partner. We're in this together. Now c'mon, fight!"'
Voiced by: Rumi Ookubo (Japanese) and Erica Mendez (English)

The 17-year old fairy residing in the Fury Fang lifted, and thus became bonded to him as his partner. She is considered an irregularity among the fairies because she is an amnesiac, and none of the other fairies they encounter recognize her. Thus one of the main goals of the game is recovering her lost memories and reviving the goddess with the information those memories provide the party. Though she and Fang argue a lot, they are actually very similar in terms of personality and get along well when they are not making snide comments at each other.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: She fuses her soul to Fang to save his life. In the Tiara ending, she returns to the Goddess when the Vile God is defeated.
  • Love Confession:
    • Gives a very frank one in response to Fang jokingly asking if she had fallen for him, notable in that this occurs regardless of which of the heroines endings you're going for.
    • She gives him another one when she reunites with the Goddess.
  • Tsundere: A mild one. With regards to Fang, Eryn can't seem to make up her mind if she is Dere or Tsun.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Tiara.
  • Voice of the Legion: During the final battle, she speaks with both her voice and the Goddess' whenever you use a special attack.
  • What Is This Feeling?: Has a moment of this when Fang asks her whether or not Sherman is her ideal type of guy, and gets flustered at the idea that Fang might like her. This riles her up enough that she starts asking Harley of all people, on what Fang's type of girl might be in a later event.
  • Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: Much like Fang, she also has this reaction towards Tiara's haughty attitude.

    Tiara Tiris Tears

"Oh my. Not one word of gratitude after I just served you some delicious tea? How rude."'
Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara (Japanese) and Natalie Hoover (English)

An 18-year old fencer Fang and Eryn encounter on their first attempt at retrieving a Fury, and the other main heroine. Her first impression wasn't very good, since not many people are likely to appreciate being fed paralytic tea, but as the story progresses their relationship improves. The very image of a rich and proper girl, however her masochistic tendencies in response to Fang's verbal abuse makes tends to shatter that ideal image. She claims to be on a journey to revive the Goddess for the sake of world peace.

  • Anti-Antichrist: As a descendant of the Vile God, her blood could be used to resurrect him and end the world, but she's devoted her life to reviving the Goddess and preventing the Vile God from ever being reborn.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Kidnapped by Sherman to serve as a sacrifice to revive the Vile God.
  • Barrier Warrior: Her "Barrier" special command generates a Beehive Barrier around her that dramatically boosts her defences, however she can't carry out any actions other than guarding in this state.
  • Bishie Sparkles: She tends to get these whenever she is turned on by Fang's insults.
  • Blade on a Stick: Cui starts off her battles as a glaive.
  • Blatant Lies: In one of her character voice samples, she tries to deny the fact that she is a masochist, and only ends up getting turned on while talking about being abused leading her to excuse herself.
  • Breeding Slave: Her body was used to birth out Vile God Cells so that Dorfa can rule with a Vile God descendant army.
  • Casual Kink: Played for Laughs. She seems to enjoy Fang's verbal abuse.
  • Combat Sadomasochist She has a passive ability that gives her SP when taking damage.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Both in-universe and in the meta sense. After all, she will always die one way or the other before you travel back in time in any of the three routes. To be specific:
    • In the Goddess Route, Sherman kills Tiara because of her blood, which could be used as sacrifice to summon the Vile God.
    • In the Vile God Route, she really did get sacrificed to summon the Vile God. Though she survives the ordeal.
    • It is downplayed in-universe in the Evil Goddess Route, where she took a blow that was meant for Fang. Still the same in the meta sense, with the writers being the cosmic beings.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: Positioned this way while inside the Vile God.
  • Death Seeker: Near the end of the Goddess route, it's revealed that she gave Sherman permission to kill her in order to prevent the Vile God's revival.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Gradually warms up to the rest of the party as the game progresses despite her harsh attitude and her anger at their antics.
  • Double Weapon: Her primary weapon is a glaive.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her style of dress involves a lot of black and frilly clothing
  • Enraged by Idiocy: Often appears as a Rage Breaking Point. Occasionally Tiara loses it because of Fang and Eryn doing or saying something stupid.
  • Godiva Hair: When she was naked inside the Vile God, her breasts are covered.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Gets very jealous of Fang and Eryn's closeness and how they don't even need to use words to communicate at times.
  • Guest Fighter: Makes an appearance as a playable, albeit DLC, character in Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Whenever she tries to lecture people on dirty tactics, they then had to remind her of the tea trick she pulled on them.
  • Making a Splash: She specializes in water magic and techniques.
  • Naked First Impression: She is found completely naked while inside the Vile God, Harley's reaction to that after pulling her out.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Her talking like a delinquent and robbing a hoodlum is one of the first indications to Eryn and Sherman that the personalities of the people they know have changed due to the Vile God's influence.
  • Proper Lady: She tries to be proper and elegant and she certainly looks the part but her companions try her temper too much. Then there's her masochistic streak.
  • Relationship Upgrade: She falls for Fang for real in her own ending, of course.
  • Reverse Shrapnel: Her "Splash Saucer" attack has her throw two discs made of water that converges toward their targets.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: Downplayed. Almost immediately claims Fang is in love with her and leaves it alone after that unless she is messing with Eryn.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: She seems to be turned on by being insulted, so all of Fang's attempts to get under her skin will inevitably backfire.
    • She even has an ability that revolves around this where she recovers mana whenever she gets attacked.
  • Tsundere: A mild one, but it's there. In particular she is often annoyed by both Fang's foolishness and Eryn's closeness to him.

    Harley Harler (Harler)

"Since I gave you some information, let me tag along. I'd like to thoroughly study how you guys work in the field."
Voiced by: Nao Tōyama (Japanese) and Erika Harlacher (English)

A 24-year old fairy researcher who joins the party out of interest in the unusual circumstances surrounding Eryn. A complete and utter slob who forgets to even put on clothes most of the time, to the utter despair of her fairy partner. Regardless she is still a diligent worker and strives to have a better understanding of the bonds between human and fairy. Is apparently oblivious to the fact that her looks attract a lot of attention.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Seems to primarily be interested in examining female fairies (which is sometimes taken to creepy levels when she does), her first words when the party meets Marianna for the first time is that she's cute, and according to Bahus when meeting each other for the first time, she simply expressed disappointment that he wasn't a girl fairy.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her magic is all earth based.
  • Ditzy Genius: She's an expert in fairy studies, and knows quite a bit about them. Getting her to focus on the task at hand is another story.
  • Enemy Scan: Her "Analysis" special command allows her to view enemy's status such as stats and elemental weaknesses.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins Dorfa in the Vile God route because in that world she found out that the Goddess didn't exist anymore. She quickly switches back once she realizes that Eryn is a sentient part of the Goddess's power again.
  • For Science!: All she cares about is her fairy research, nothing else garners any interest from her. Her start-of-turn quote is "New data!?"
  • Gainaxing: Among the girls, she has the largest and bounciest breasts. Several of her animations not-so-subtly make her breasts bounce as well.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her primary weapon is a large-caliber pistol. She also has an attack literally titled this.
  • The Gunslinger: Wields a gun in combat. She also starts with a very long range, and even backflips on a few of her attacks to move away from her target.
  • Hot Scientist: For a researcher, she is both beautiful and incredibly stacked.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Played for Laughs. During the Evil Goddess route, Harley takes her investigation of Karin too far and causes Karin to start crying. Ethel starts chasing her around the inn for revenge, and Fang and Bahus know Harley too well to try and save her from Ethel's wrath.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: As part of a fairy's "initiation" she basically molests them to find out their body characteristics and such.
  • Mad Scientist: What some of the fairies consider her to be, pretty justified on their part.
  • More Dakka: About half of her unlockable combo moves with her gun are simply about filling the air with bullets. It's not unusual to see her miss a lot with these moves, though.
  • Narrator All Along: Both endings of the Goddess Route imply she's the narrator from the very start.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She has absolutely no qualms stripping off what little she has on to beat the heat, much to Bahus's annoyance and Apollonius's embarrassment.
  • Short Hair with Tail: Sports a bob cut with a long, thin ponytail at the back.
  • Sphere of Destruction: Many of her attack skills ends with this.
  • Stripperiffic: There's not much on her, clothing-wise, from the front.

"You should be grateful. Not everyone gets to enjoy my delicious desserts."
Voiced by: Masaki Terasoma (Japanese) and Ray Chase (English)

Harley's put-upon, 41-year old fairy companion. He's a friendly and genial man who cooks and cleans for Harley because she's too lazy to do anything herself.

  • Chained by Fashion: Wears a large one around his neck.
  • Promotion to Parent: He acts more like Harley's mother than her fairy.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Wears a pink apron while cooking.
  • Supreme Chef: He started cooking because Harley wouldn't do it herself, but grew to like it, and ended up getting quite good at it. Fang is more than happy to indulge.

    Galdo Garzuom (Gald) 
"After all, our butts belong to Fang now!"
Voiced by: Takatsugu Awazu (Japanese), Derek Stephen Prince (English)

A low-ranking 20-year old Dorfa operative who works for Zenke. He joins the party after Fang defeats him; the two have a strange synergy and agree on a lot of things.

  • Alas, Poor Villain: In the Vile God route, he starts remembering his time with Fang in the first timeline before dying.
  • Blow You Away: Most of his attacks are wind-based.
  • Canada, Eh?/Kansai Regional Accent: His accent on both the English and Japanese versions, respectively.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Joins your party after beating him as he is moved by Fang's actions to save him.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Even after the changes to the world in the Vile God route had basically turned him into Zenke, Galdo still respects Marissa enough to listen to her suggestions and never lashes out at her as Zenke did with Della. His only regret when dying is that his own death will force Marissa to die.
  • Fun Personified: This guy is even more cheerful and upbeat than Fang is.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: Whatever it was that Junown did to him in the Evil Goddess route is never seen, the player is only able to see Marissa breaking down crying at what has happened to him. By the time he's been taken care of at the hospital the only thing able to be seen through the bloody bandages is a single eye and some hair. To compare, the game has no issue displaying the Body Horror involved in Marianna's fusion to the Vile God in the Vile God route, nor the bloody deaths of Tiara and Bernard in the original story.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: In the Evil Goddess Route, he joins for one dungeon and is then incapacitated for the rest of the story, his fairy Marissa on the other hand will stay with you for most of the story in his absence.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A non lethal variant near the start of the Evil Goddess route, he blows himself up along with Sherman to buy time for Fang to escape from him.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Vile God route, notable in that his death is what triggers Fang's memories to return.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Pre-Heel–Face Turn, he used to work for Dorfa, not out of pure malice, but because he simply needs work.
  • Sinister Scythe: Wields Marissa in this form.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: He wears a sleeveless fur vest and his primary role in the party is to deal out physical damage much like Fang. His level-up Catchphrase is even, "I'm feelin' BUFF!"
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: He and Fang both became Fencers because they thought getting a Fury would let them wish for food.
  • Super Mode: Other than Fairizing, his "Full Swing" special command doubles his attack power with the drawback of his accuracy being halved.
  • Video Game Stealing: Several of his special skills, increasingly more effective for the later ones.
  • Walking the Earth: At the end of the Goddess Route, he decides to explore the world and learn more about it.

"I apologize for any inconvenience my Galdy-kins causes you."
Voiced by: Kayano Ide (Japanese) and Erika Harlacher (English)

Galdo's 22-year old fairy. They've been together since he was ten, so she basically raised him. She often dotes over him like a mother would to a spoiled child.

  • Crack Pairing: In-Universe Marissa comes to this conclusion about Galdo and Sherman in the Evil Goddess route. She's convinced that it's not just possible, but very likely, that Sherman is keeping him trapped and alive somewhere not as a hostage, but a lover and that his "well trained sword" will pierce Galdo's "body and soul".
  • Promotion to Parent: Since Galdo was only ten when he became a Fencer, Marissa had to act as a surrogate mother to him, despite only being 2 years older than him.

    Pippin (Pipin) 
"A human's character is more important than their appearance. You should all learn to be more discerning of others."
Voiced by: Asami Shimoda (Japanese) and Cristina Vee (English)

A very strange Fencer who is often mistaken for a fairy, due to apparently being an animated plushie. He absolutely refuses to explain any aspect of his appearance. He's a veteran Fencer who often gives advice to the younger party members and tells stories about his "youth". He fights with his fists.

  • Ambiguous Gender: In the Japanese release, his gender was never stated and left up to debate, averted in the overseas releases, where he not only sounds male but is addressed as one as well.
    • The "Male Bonding!?" and "A Woman's Garden" trophies both require a male and female only team to defeat a specific boss respectively. Pippin is specifically excluded from both team compositions.
  • Cartoon Creature: He look's like a giant green cat with an afro, but the rest of the party isn't sure what Pippin actually is.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In the Goddess and Vile God route, he joins without a fight otherwise.
  • For Great Justice: Pippin quotes this trope when he joins Fang in the Goddess route.
  • Noodle Incident: We never find out why there is a sword in his head, but he was impaled with several more swords when he was younger.
  • Old Master: While his actual age isn't specified, his dialogue implies that he's much older than the rest of the party. His veteran status backs this up and he gives useful advice to his junior fencers.
  • Power Fist: How he wields Soji.
  • Shock and Awe: Several of his skills involve electricity.

"Pippin's story is about to become rather long. Shall I brew you all a cup of tea?"
Voice by: Yuki Ono (Japanese) and Derek Stephen Prince (English)

Pippin's 20-year old fairy, he looks completely human and is often mistaken for the Fencer of the relationship. He doesn't seem to see anything strange about Pippin.

  • Accidental Pervert: He admits to Tiara that he saw her naked and even touching her unconscious body when they were inside the Vile God, though he assures her he has no interest in the female body.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He claims has absolutely no interest in the female body, as well as mentioning an interest in "other" bodies after Tiara looks for clarification on his choice of words before eagerly heading off to a bath where Fang and Sherman already are. That said, he has a frequent habit of saying things specifically to mess with people.
  • Battle Butler: He dresses and acts like a butler, but he's still Pippin's weapon.
  • The Gadfly: He'll occasionally tell outlandish stories about his and Pippin's past, such as it being him who found Pippin after hatching from an egg, before admitting it was made up. Despite stories like the egg one being completely impossible given the way fairies typically work, the completely absurd nature of Pippin himself is enough to make the stories believable.
  • The Jeeves: Fits this to a tee, complete with a British accent in the English dub.

    Ethel (Effole)

Voiced by: Emi Nitta (Japanese) and Kira Buckland (English)

A silent 16-year old Fencer who ambushes Fang and the party when they travel to Bui Valley. She has a cold and mechanical attitude and only communicates using various forms of the word "kill". Her fairy partner, Karin, interprets her words for her. She has no ambition or greater purpose than fighting Fencers.

She has a little more screen time in Advent Dark Force, where she and her fairy also appear at the Katticus Ice Caves and at Dorfa's party.

  • Noodle Incident: Ethel won a dance contest once. Ethel is good at popping and locking.
  • No Social Skills: All she says is "kill," to the point that her fairy has to act as a translator for her. One night, she also climbs into Fang's bed and cuddles with him. Naturally, Tiara and Eryn don't take kindly to it.
  • One-Hit Kill: Her Assassinate ability lets her take out anything short of bosses in one hit. It almost always works. Unfortunately, it has to charge and if Ethel takes more than a couple hits during this time the ability is canceled. Naturally her next turn gets delayed and she has to get rather close to the enemy to use it, meaning even one enemy will almost always have the opportunity to interrupt it.
  • Orphanage of Fear: According to Karin, she is from one of these. Supposedly, children that failed to become Fencers would vanish.
  • Sixth Ranger: She's the last compulsory teammate to join in the Goddess route. Averted in the other two story routes, where other characters join after her.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Wields Karin as a bow and arrow.
  • Sweet Tooth: After joining the party, she gains a fondness for sweets.
  • Violently Protective Partner: Harley's investigation toward Karin let her discover that Ethel reacts pretty strongly when someone makes Karin cry.
  • Third-Person Person: After she joins you and starts speaking normally, she uses this speech method. Though in the ending in the Goddess route, she has come far enough along that she is now referring to herself using pronouns. "But...maybe I wouldn't mind if someone else came along with us..."
  • Yandere: In her expanded role on the initial timeline in Advent Dark Force she comes off this way declaring a hatred of people who are lovey-dovey or "flaunting stupid friendship" and targeting Tiara first in Bui Valley. In battle she prioritizes killing Tiara under all circumstances over anyone else given the choice, followed by anyone other than Fang until critical, at which point Fang finally becomes a potential target. This trait is dropped in all secondary timelines.

"Ethel says, 'I'll kill you', and... Well, I'll omit the rest."
Voiced by: Ayaka Ohashi (Japanese) and Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

Ethel's 16-year old fairy partner and interpreter. In stark contrast to her Fencer, she is quite friendly, but she still follows her and obeys her whims.


    Sherman Shallancer

"My dream is peace. A peace that will blanket this entire world like pure, white snow."
Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi (Japanese), Alan Lee (English)

A refined, handsome 21-year old gentleman who believes strongly in justice and wants to use his wish to bring peace to the world. Seemingly perfect in many aspects. He charms Eryn and Tiara almost instantaneously, much to Fang's (and later Galdo's) annoyance.

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the original game, Marianna was the one who decided to use orphans as hostages. In the Goddess Route, he's the one to use them as hostages to pressure her and Zagi.
  • Big Bad: Takes this spot after killing Hanagata in the Goddess Route.
    • Big Bad Friend: Was originally part of Fang's party until killing Tiara sent him off the deep end in the Goddess Route.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He thinks he's leading the Septerion Club in the Evil Goddess Route, but he's just an Unwitting Pawn for Junown, who kills him after he loses to the party.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He comes back as a spirit to help the party when they're losing to the Evil Goddess.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Even before going utterly insane in the Goddess route Sherman was never exactly the good guy he pretends to be. He murdered his own sister simply because she ended up becoming a bandit and made no attempt at all to get her to turn her life around.
  • Black-and-White Insanity: In the Goddess route, he becomes obsessed with his own idea of Justice to the point he slaughters entirely innocent villagers and takes over Dorfa to try ensuring he can revive the Vile God and become one with them.
  • Casting a Shadow: As Vile God Sherman.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Gets really upset when Tiara mentions Fang while they were having a private moment.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Between the final boss's phases, his spirit tells Fang that his fusion with the Vile God ended with his soul being consumed, meaning the god will be in control of their shared body.
  • Foil: To four characters:
    • Fang — He is charismatic, noble and nice, but ultimately goes batshit insane and kills Tiara in the first timeline Because Destiny Says So. Fang is lazy, slovenly and caustic, but nevertheless is willing to Screw Destiny and save Tiara, and by extension, Apollonius, Ethel and other characters.
    • Apollonius — Sherman is a light-elemental who betrays Fang to take over Dorfa. Apollonius is a dark-elemental who can defect from Dorfa to join Fang's party. Both are deconstructions of Knight in Shining Armor, but in different ways. Apollonius tries to live up to the ideal of an unyielding and honorable swordsman cleansed of worldly desires, but this is mainly to cope with his job and provide for his sister. Sherman is devoted to establishing justice and world peace, even if it means killing his sister, killing Tiara, and using the Vile God. While Apollonius eventually realizes that his gung-ho attitude is eventually going to get him killed and leave his sister distraught, Sherman goes through Sanity Slippage in the Goddess Route and remains a Knight Templar.
    • Pippin — Both characters hunt bandits for justice. Pippin subdues them and attempts to educate them and get them to become good people. Sherman kills them without any mercy. Even if the bandit in question is his own sister.
    • Galdo — Similarly to Apollonius, he also defects from under a villain and joins tthe hero, constrasting Sherman. Galdo is also constantly looked down on or forgotten, but is actually a good person. Sherman is considered almost perfect by many, but later on betrays Fang and party.
  • Freudian Excuse: His family was killed by the Vile God tribe and his attempts to shelter his sister from the outside world backfired when she got kidnapped and corrupted by bandits. This caused him to develop an intense hatred towards the Vile God tribe and criminals in general.
  • Godhood Seeker: His ultimate goal in the Goddess Route is to fuse with the Vile God and bring "peace" to the world as its new God.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Is temporarily playable for the last few dungeons of the first timeline. Averted in the Vile God route, where he stays in the party.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Despite hating the Vile God and his descendants, Sherman later ends up crazier than Bernard (an antagonistic Vile God descendant) and tries to revive the Vile God for his own purposes.
  • Ignored Epiphany: In the first timeline, he feels guilty for killing his sister-turned-bandit and questions his hardline stance against criminals, but in the Goddess route, he ends up sticking to his Black-and-White Insanity. Averted in the Vile God route, where he wants to save Tiara despite her Vile God blood to avoid repeating his past mistakes.
  • Invisible to Adults: A more mundane version than normal. Fang, Galdo, and Ethel are the only characters to immediately pick up on the fact that there is just something very wrong with him. In the Vile God route he addresses this directly, mentioning that children notice things are wrong far more easily when Ethel tries to avoid him.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the Evil Goddess route, Noie quickly and effortlessly offs him after the party beats him.
  • Klingon Promotion: Uses this method to take over the Dorfa corporation.
  • Knight Templar: Like Tiara, he wants peace. Unlike her, however, he's willing to do just whatever it takes to reach that end, even going so far as to unseal the Vile God.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He does genuinely love Tiara, but the discovery of her bloodline and the guilt of killing her turned him into a psychotic wreck who can't decide if he loves or hates her.
  • Light 'em Up: Has light themed spells.
  • One-Winged Angel: After fusing with the Vile God.
  • Promoted to Playable: While he was playable in the first iteration, Advent Dark Force makes him a full-fledged party member for the Vile God route.
  • Replacement Goldfish: In the Vile God route, he notices how anxious Eryn is with Fang's absence and realizes that, despite what she says in the contrary about him being better than Fang, he can't replace him for her.
  • Secretly Selfish: Despite his claims of fighting for justice, Fang accuses him of killing his bandit sister because of his own ego. His Freudian Excuse implies that deep down, he really wants to seek vengeance against all evil-doers in general.
  • Secretly Wealthy: While you get a few hints he's a man of means, a conversation between him and his fairy in the Vile God route after several members join your party reveal that if necessary, he could afford to pay for them to all stay at the inn for 285-410 days, and that's even factoring in for the rate at which they've been growing.
  • Super Mode: Aside from his Fury Form and fusion with the Vile God, Sherman has his "Justice" ability in gameplay. Its effects are functionally identical to Fang's "Serious Face".
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the Vile God route, he's more receptive to the idea of sparing or recruiting enemies.
  • Unwitting Pawn: When Fang sees his memories, it's revealed that the Vile God took advantage of his guilt from killing Tiara to give him a Breaking Speech, further pushing him into his insanity.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Honestly wants peace and justice for the world, but his actions to achieve this leaves a lot to be desired. Notably, he kills Tiara in the original timeline because of the possibility that she could be used to awaken the Vile God. Then, in the Goddess route, he attempts to control the Vile God's power and become an overseer of sorts for the world. It's not certain whether he would be a benevolent ruler or a tyrant though, but he does say that his goal was to protect the world...


"[Negative. Enemy strength inadequate to require assembly. Probability of victory at your current power level is 100%]"'
Voiced by: Daiki Nakamura (Japanese) and Matthew Mercer (English)

Ryushin is Sherman's Fairy partner. He's a robot-type Fairy with a serious and straight-laced personality. Somewhat thickheaded and unable to adapt to the situation. He is completely devoted to Sherman, and believes there is no better Fencer in the world than him.

  • Badass Armfold: Is always maintaining this pose simply because that is the only picture of him that exists.
  • The Confidant: Sherman tells him all of his secrets. Which doesn't work out since Ryushin blabs them all to the other fairies.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mostly towards Eryn in the Vile God route.
  • Hates Small Talk: He really doesn't see the point of talking unless he has important information to relate and is slow to warm up to Eryn's attempts to get him to talk in the Vile God route.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his immense power as a fairy in order to kill bugs.
  • Pet the Dog: He takes care of Cui in the Vile God route after Tiara gets kidnapped, despite having no real reason to do so.
  • Put On The Bus: In the original game, He's never seen again after the Disc-One Final Boss fight. Averted in Advent Dark Force, especially in the Vile God route.
  • Undying Loyalty: Cannot see anyone but Sherman being his fairy partner.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: In the original game and Goddess route of the remake, he barely gets any screentime compared to the rest of the fairies, and completely disappears from the game after Sherman goes mad. When Sherman fights the party as his normal self at the end of the game, Ryushin is still present and recites the typical "Executing" command of most Fairies, but most likely he ended up much like his master did, consumed by the Vile God. Advent Dark Force gives him far more screentime in the Vile God route.

    Lola (Rolo)

"Hey hey, did you know? Love is spelled m-o-n-e-y."
Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi (Japanese) and Cristina Vee (English)

An 12-year old information broker who charges exorbitant prices, but is so useful that everyone pays anyway.

  • Adam Smith Hates Your Guts: Her prices for fury information go up with each new one, even if it isn't particularly better than the last. And, notably, she continues to charge you even after she joins your party.
  • The Atoner: Part of the reason she starts selling the antidote for the Septerion wine for so cheap in the Evil Goddess route ending is to atone for what she had done to help the Septerion Club.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her weapons default form. And it looks like ice cream!
  • Cry Cute: She breaks down crying once the party finds out that she was a spy for the Septerion Club, due to how guilty she felt for betraying their trust.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Provided you fulfill all the steps to unlock her, she only joins just before the Final Dungeon in the Goddess route. Averted in the other two routes, where she joins much earlier.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her eyes look noticeably electronic compared to the rest of the characters. Being a fairy likely has something to do with it.
  • Expy: Lola is basically Gust with less experience.
  • Improbable Weapon User: The fact it's a spear isn't strange. The fact it looks like an ice cream cone is.
  • Light 'em Up: Has light themed attacks
  • Money Fetish: She repeatedly states that she loves money multiple times. And it shows with her progressively expensive wares and her attempts at getting people to buy them.
  • Magical Girl: Instead of being impaled by her weapon, her Fairize is closer to a tradtional Magical Girl Transformation Sequence (minus the nudity). The fact that she's a fairy instead of human is a factor into this
  • The Mole: Unwillingly in the Evil Goddess Route. She starts leading the party into traps led by the Septerion Club, but only because she would have likely been killed if she didn't do what they said. She starts helping the party for real after she confesses.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Says this once she realizes that she was helping the Septerion Club sell drugged wine to people.
  • Secret Character: In the Goddess route she joins you if you complete all of her side missions.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Once she joins the party, it's easily noticeable that she's the youngest-looking and the most childlike member.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She gradually becomes more selfless in the Evil Goddess Route, to the point where she starts selling the antidote for the Septerion wine at a loss in the ending. She even outright says in her own ending that she's okay with it as long as it makes people happier.
  • Video Game Stealing: Her Dash Steal skill let's her do this.

Dorfa Corporation

    President Hanagata

"We'll continue to expand the company until it's known throughout the entire world."
Voiced by Nobuhiro Fukai (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)

The 52-year old leader of Dorfa. He plans to resurrect the Vile God to conquer the world and bring peace.

  • Big Bad: He’s the one trying to resurrect the Vile God, but gets usurped in each route.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He aims to expand his company until it controls the world.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He's played up to be the Big Bad for the first half of the game, only to be overshadowed by the actual Big Bad in each of the routes.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Implied to be this, as he's the president of Dorfa, which has their own army and a group of powerful fencers at his disposal with plans to conquer the world, however it's not even hinted that he himself is a fencer or if he participates in combat at all.
  • Take Over the World: His goal.
  • The Unfought: He's never directly fought by the party in any of the story routes, since he’s a Non-Action Big Bad and not even that.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After being saved from the Justice Society Camp in the Evil Goddess route, he orders Paiga to fight Fang to try and curry favor with the Justice Society.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Only appears in a few scenes in the entire game and ends up getting replaced as the Big Bad in each of the story routes.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Oddly, he disappears from the plot entirely in the Vile God route, with Fang and later Marianna replacing him as the president of Dorfa.


"Naturally, I plan to separate his head from his shoulders the moment we meet."
Voiced by: Kohei Murakami (Japanese) and Robbie Daymond (English)

One of Dorfa's top executives, being ranked as a Financial Director, but not one of the Four Heavenly Czars. In the original timeline, he plans to use Dorfa to help complete his own personal goals, and is quite sadistic and ruthless despite his calm demeanor. He believes that power is the best way to communicate one's intent. Age 35.

  • Amnesiac Dissonance: In the Evil Goddess route, he has no direct memories of being a descendant of the Vile God and only knows about the previous world from hearsay. Without his evil ambitions, he's nothing more than a mellow recluse who wants to live peacefully with Sanguina.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: He is a descendant of The Vile God and can be used as a sacrifice to revive him. This actually happens in the Goddess route, where he's unwittingly sacrificed in place of Tiara. This happens again in the Vile God route, where Marianna sacrifices him to control the Vile God.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: While he initially appears to be just another Dorfa official, he ultimately becomes the sacrifice that awakens the Vile God in the original route.
  • Heel–Face Turn: At first in the Evil Goddess route. After Dorfa collapsed, he was completely content with living out the rest of his life with Sanguina. Unfortunately, he's Forced into Evil by Junown.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the Goddess route, he notices the Vile God's awakening and tries to usurp its power from Sherman. It promptly kills him.
  • Killed Off for Real: In most of the routes.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He informs Sherman that someone( Tiara specifically) in his group has the Vile God's blood, presumably to take advantage of his Knight Templar tendencies. In the Goddess route, this ploy succeeds, with Sherman killing Tiara and causing his Sanity Slippage.
  • The Starscream: He doesn't actually have any loyalty towards Dorfa, only intending to use them so that he can control the Vile God himself.
  • Tragic Villain: He's only a villain in the Evil Goddess route because Junown would have killed him otherwise, telling the party that he would never have fought again if he had the choice. He's ultimately killed by the party anyway after he fights them.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Marianna saves him from quicksand after his first defeat. He still insists on scheming against Dorfa in the next timeline.

    Apollonius (Appolones)

"This sword contains my soul."
Voiced by: Takuya Sato (Japanese) and Matthew Mercer (English)

One of Dorfa's Four Heavenly Czars, Apollonius, age 24, is considered one of the strongest Fencers in the world, and has the skills to back that title. He lives his life adhering to the warriors' code, and would rather die in battle than be treated mercifully in anyway. Extremely stoic and blunt, but has a code of honor that makes him clash with the more detestable parts of Dorfa like Zenke.

  • Big Damn Heroes: He comes back as a spirit to help the party when they're losing to the Evil Goddess.
  • Blood Knight: He seems to live for nothing but fighting. As Fang discovers in the first timeline, he was only pushing himself to adapt to Dorfa's terrible working conditions and provide for Emily.
  • BFS: His weapon's default form is a giant two-handed crystal claymore.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Gives off this feeling when he tries to tell Harley to stay away from him. Then again, Harley being Harley...
  • Casting a Shadow: His primary magic attacks are all based on darkness.
  • Dark Is Evil: Darkness powers, black and purple color scheme, and working with the antagonists. His name however is closer to Light Is Not Good, being derived and incorporating the name of Apollo, one of the Sun Gods of Greek Mythology.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: But only if he joins your party. He provides a nice contrast to Sherman in the Goddess Route if it happens.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In the Goddess route, he only joins the party if Fang is level 40(35 in the remake), otherwise he commits suicide for his defeat. In the Vile God route, he'll join the party by default.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Gets really flustered whenever Fang calls him Pretty Boy.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During his time in Dorfa, he never approved of Zenke's psychopathic lifestyle.
  • Heel–Face Turn: If Fang is Level 40(35 in Advent Dark Force) when you fight him in the Goddess route, he defects from Dorfa and joins Fang.
  • Honor Before Reason: In the Evil Goddess route, he refuses to take the antidote for the Septerion Club wine, which ultimately gets him killed.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: In Advent Dark Force, he'll challenge Fang to an unwinnable duel in the town prison.
  • Lazy Bum: In the Vile God route he seems relatively unchanged in personality until the very end when Emily reveals that his claims of honing his skills with a sword have been nothing but a lie to avoid having to get a job.
  • Promotion to Parent: He is the breadwinner for his younger sister Emily. At the first timeline, after killing him, Fang meets her and discovers how miserable he made her life.
  • Secret Character: In the original game and the Goddess Route in the remakehe's only unlocked if Fang is Level 40( 35 in Advent Dark Force) by the time the party encounters him. And then the party has to go out of their way to Find the Cure! because Apollonius got fatally injured by Sherman.
  • Shrinking Violet: Is apparently somewhat shy, and gets embarrassed when near Harley.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Fits this to the bill appearance wise.

    Marianna (Mariano)

"...Any betrayal against Dorfa is unforgivable."
Voiced by: Rui Tanabe (Japanese) and Dorothy Elias-Fahn (English)

One of Dorfa's Four Heavenly Czars, and the one most dedicated to Dorfa's cause. She spends her spare time at an orphanage, playing her harp for the children. Age 24.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the original Fairy Fencer storyline, she was a Jerk with a Heart of Jerk who had no issue using the orphanage children as hostages when her back is against the wall, and she's completely ungrateful when Zagi sacrifices himself to save her. Advent Dark Force changes it so that Dorfa takes the children as hostages under Sherman's orders, much to her disgust, while also mourning Zagi after he dies saving them.
  • Berserk Button: Insulting Dorfa tends to irk her, though in a more comedic sense saying that she has wrinkles will lead to a painful experience.
  • Big Bad: In the Vile God route.
  • Cry into Chest: Does this with Fang after they are forced to kill Zagiin the Evil Goddess route.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: She is the last opponent you face in the first timeline.
    • Final Boss: Though she becomes the last foe you face in the Vile God route after she merges with the Vile God.
  • Enemy Mine: Joins the party mainly because she wants to get back at the Septerian Club For destroying Dorfa.
    • Heel–Face Turn: But eventually warms up to the party and stays with them for real.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: In the Vile God route, she fuses with the Vile God, but ends up slowly losing control, as shown by her unstable speech pattern.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Even when she switches to the good side she is still willing to do some nasty things to protect the world. Also she takes offense at being described as nice, even resorting to violence when Fang and her fairy take the joke too far.
  • Kick the Morality Pet: In the Vile God route, she sent Zagi to the Human Ranch and later ordered him to be absorbed into the Vile God while taking Bernard with him.
  • Klingon Promotion: Indirectly, but the death of Hanagata in the Evil Goddess route leads her to take up the position as President at the end.
  • Morality Pet: The children she takes care of in the orphanage.
  • Promoted to Playable: In the Advent Dark Force PS4 port.
  • One-Winged Angel: Her modified fairy form is pretty monstrous, however it pales in comparison to her appearance when she merges with the Vile God.
  • Redemption Demotion: While this applies to just about any character who goes from being a boss to a playable character, Marianna is notable in that she no longer uses her One-Winged Angel form upon joining in the Evil Goddess route. Apparently, it's really draining on the user and isn't suited for long battles.
  • Rescue Romance: After being rescued by Fang in the Devil storyline, her attraction to him is apparent during her ending.
  • Romantic Spoonfeeding: Indulges in this with Fang in one event, saying that she doesn't know what she is feeling but she doesn't hate it.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her 3D model shows that her outfit has an open back.
  • Ship Tease: A lot of it with Fang in the Evil Goddess route in which she becomes a playable party member.
  • Through His Stomach: In her ending for the Evil Goddess route she attempts to recruit Fang as a Dorfa executive through this method. Though even after he adamantly refuses to join the company she still agrees to treat him to meals for a different reason.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In the Vile God route, she becomes far more ruthless to the point of sending Zagi to the Human Ranch. It's hinted that she's drunk on Dorfa's newfound power.
  • Tsundere: Downplayed example, but she still shows her affection in a roundabout way, claiming that Fang is even worse than the children at the orphanage, but that gives her a reason to stick around to take care of him.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Legitimately believes that Dorfa's actions are necessary in order to create a peaceful world.


"Lady Marianna rehired me... I'll cut you to pieces right now!"
Voiced by: Kensho Ono (Japanese) and Kyle Hebert (English)

A low-ranking Dorfa employee who was fired, but re-hired as Marianna's personal guard. As such, he is extremely dedicated to her. Age 19.

  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the Goddess route of Advent Dark Force, Zagi, though grievously wounded by fighting the party, uses his last strength to take revenge on Sherman's soldiers for kidnapping and using Marianna's orphans as hostages.
  • Dying as Yourself: In the Evil Goddess route. After Marianna is forced to put him down, he regains all of his memories of the previous timeline and encourages Marianna to keep going before dying.
  • Foil: To Galdo. Both directly serve under one of the Heavenly Czars, but while Zagi idolizes Marianna, Galdo despises Zenke.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies defending Marianna.
  • Sanity Slippage: In the Evil Goddess route, he consumes the "wine" and the newfound power eventually drives him mad.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: When you fight the two. Marianna's enormous Fairy Form is an almost laughable contrast to Zagi, who you can barely see since the camera's zoomed out and focused on Marianna.
  • Tsundere: Hinted to be one; one of Marianna's orphans ask if he's married to her, and he responds in a way that suggests that he's this.

    Zenke (Zank)

"You're so cute! I could just eat you up! Would you like that? Do you want me to eat your GUTS?"
Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Japanese) and Sean Chiplock (English)

One of Dorfa's Four Heavenly Czars. He's a bloodthirsty psychopath even by their standards, and often lusts for killing and blood. He often kills his own soldiers at the slightest provocation, and enjoys forcing people to kill their loved ones for his amusement. Age 22.

  • Always Someone Better: He gets away with terrorizing innocent people simply because he's a better fighter than anyone else he comes across. Fang and company put a stop to that, causing Zenke to grow obsessed with beating Fang. Then, there's someone even better than that when Sherman bumps into him. Zenke starts his usual schtick, but Sherman casually cuts him down.
  • Ax-Crazy: He terrorizes an entire village and forces close family members to kill other, purely for his own entertainment.
  • Bad Boss: Galdo certainly thinks so. Zenke even kills his own underlings if he thinks they're not doing their jobs properly. Even Della isn't spared from his abuse, especially in the Vile God route where he kills himself despite how doing so takes his fairy with him.
  • Bullying a Dragon: After getting defeated by Fang, he runs into Sherman and acts exactly like he's been doing from the start. Sherman kills him.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The guy is a complete jerk.
  • Dramatic Stutter: In the Vile God route, Zenke and Galdo practically switch roles; due to his new life under a bloodthirsty master, Zenke picks up a stuttering habit thanks to his constant nervousness.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the Vile God route, he enjoys seeing other people die so much that he kills himself after the party beats him in the final dungeon.
  • Duel Boss: Briefly with Fang the first time the player encounters him. Tiara and Harley join up with Fang not long after the fight starts. The last time the player fights Zenke, it really is one-on-one.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Gleefully so. "I'll flood the world in BLOOD!" is among the more restrained things he can shout at Fang during their boss battle.
  • Hate Sink: His Establishing Character Moment is to force villagers to kill each other, resulting in some of them committing suicide rather than obeying him. As such, it's hard to feel any sympathy for him when Sherman kills him. In the Vile God route, he starts out sympathetic, but eventually devolves into his old self and mocks Galdo's death to twist the knife against Fang and the players.
  • It's Personal: After being defeated, he makes it his mission to collect as many Furies as he can to get revenge on Fang for humiliating him. He doesn't get a chance to act on it after Sherman one-shots him.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: The last time the player fights him, Fang offers Zenke the chance to join him. Zenke appears to briefly consider it, but then tries to kill Fang when he lets his guard down. Luckily, Galdo sees it coming, and backstabs Zenke instead.
    • Subverted in the Vile God route, where he will wholeheartedly surrender and beg for his life after Sherman beats him.
  • Laughing Mad: Both he and his fairy have a tendency to break into evil laughter at the slightest provocation.
  • Sanity Slippage: Throughout the Vile God route. He starts off as a nervous and unconfident Reluctant Warrior who only fights the party out of fear, but he starts losing it after he betrays Galdo. By the time the party finds him the Dansklight Ruins, he's even crazier than he was in the original timeline.
    • In the Evil Goddess route, the wine's influence drives him mad, causing Marianna to look at him with pity.
  • You Have Failed Me: After his henchmen lose to Fang in Zenke's "tournament," Zenke kills them and calls them useless. He even does this to his own Fairy the last time he's fought.

    Paiga Pairon

"We especially can't risk damaging Dorfa's reputation! Our stock would fall drastically, we'd lose all public trust, and once that happens, we can kiss our year-end bonuses good-bye! If that happens, how am I supposed to pay my mortgage, my daughter's tuition, or my bar tab?"
Voiced by: Youji Ueda (Japanese) and Kyle Hebert (English)

One of Dorfa's Four Heavenly Czars, despite the fact that he has no interest in their goals and virtually no applicable skills. He spends most of his time bullied by everyone else, only staying so that he can provide for his wife and three kids. Age 44.

  • Butt-Monkey: He's rarely treated with any kind of respect from the rest of the cast, including his own fairy Vivian, who frequently makes fun of him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's the most cowardly of the Czars, but when he has to fight, he's about as strong as the others and has a One-Winged Angel form just like Marianna, Zenke, and Bernard.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: After the stress starts affecting him, Vivian convinces him into doing this. The idea is quickly shut down by his wife.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Leaves Dorfa in the Vile God route after the party beats him a second time, and he later tells them where the Vile God is being kept at. Downplayed in the Evil Goddess Route, where he leaves the Septerion club and helps take Galdo to the hospital, but he was never very loyal to them to begin with.
  • Henpecked Husband: He's constantly at the mercy of his wife.
  • I Am Your Opponent: In the Vile God timeline, Fang orders him to fight the party, but he replies that he's not trained for combat. When Fang threatens to defer his next bonus into a research fund for a product that they've never been able to sell, it motivates him.
    Vivian: Strengthen your resolve, Paiga. If you take action here, the president might actually take your advice later on.
    Paiga: ...A-All right, then! Heed me, kidnappers! I am your opponent! Stand and fight me!
  • I Have a Family: In the Evil Goddess timeline, he begs Noie not to kill him after he hast just killed Hanagata, saying that he has a family: a wife and kids, and he hasn't finished paying off his mortgage. He prepares to off him anyway, but Junown offers to let him join the Septerion Club instead. After a fashion he accepts the offer.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He's only in Dorfa because he needs to be a breadwinner both for his wife and daughter.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Sports these whenever he's feeling particularly confident.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: After he's defeated for the second time in the Vile God route, Fang let's him go after giving him some hot spring buns for him to have with his family, which he later says they loved.
  • Wolverine Claws: In his Fury Form. He even has an extra set on his shoulders that he can launch at his opponents.

Characters Introduced in Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force.


Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (Japanese) and Abby Trott (English)

The manager of the Septerion Club. She's selling her wine for ridiculously high prices, with the final goal of reviving the Evil Goddess.

  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Fond of doing this in order to get people to do what she wants, with her either sending people to a Justice Society camp or killing them outright if they refuse.
  • Big Bad: In the Evil Goddess Route.
  • Blow You Away: Many of her attacks have a wind element to them, even after merging with the Evil Goddess.
  • Combat Hand Fan: Her weapon of choice.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She acts very formal and polite when talking to other people. However, she keeps the same tone while talking about killing them for not doing what she says, and she has no issue killing her own servants when she decides they aren't needed anymore anyway.
  • Hate Sink: Despite being a Well-Intentioned Extremist, she doesn't get any tragic or sympathetic moments like the Big Bads of the other two routes. In-universe, her brutal maiming of Galdo and the way she exploits people enrages Fang so much that he doesn't even think of trying to redeem her, in contrast to how he still wanted to show mercy to Sherman in the Goddess Route. She's not as big an example as Zenke though, since she has some Laughably Evil moments like when she offers to give Fang Marshmallow Hell after seeing Harley pull him into her breasts.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The Stinger reveals that Anju and her Grandfather are this to her.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: After she's defeated, she claims that she was trying to use the Evil Goddess's power to prevent the beings from the dimension the gods are from from invading their realm, since the Goddess can't stop them by herself.


Voiced by: Takashi Hagashino (Japanese) and Chris Tergliafera (English)

A 29-year old assassin working for the Septerion Club. He constantly talks about wanting to die, hoping to reincarnate as an insect.

  • Badass Baritone: His voice is pretty deep compared to most of the cast.
  • Casting a Shadow: Several of his skills are darkness based.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He wants to reincarnate into an insect specifically once he dies, despite not actually knowing much about them, and he thinks that taking too long to die will cause him to reincarnate into something else.
  • Death Seeker: He's almost always talking about wanting to die, hoping to reincarnate into an insect once he does. He starts questioning this thought process in his own ending.
  • The Dragon: To Junown until he leaves the Septerion Club and joins Fang's party.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: He joins the party very late into the Evil Goddess route.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Despite being a Fencer, he's not actually linked with a Fairy, with his gun instead using the Evil Goddess's blood to put him on par with a normal Fencer.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He's disgusted after seeing what Junown did to Galdo, saying that even he isn't that vile.
  • The Gunslinger: Uses a pistol as his main weapon.
  • Manchild: After Fang refuses to kill him, he starts throwing a tantrum about how he won't let him die. He even starts crying over it.
  • Nominal Hero: He only joins the party since Marianna promises to kill him in exchange for him helping them.
  • Weak, but Skilled: As a party member, most of his normal attacks do less damage than the rest of the characters. This is offset with them all being able to inflict status effects.


Voiced by: Tessho Genda (Japanese)

Pippin's father, who's working for the Septerion Club. He's strongly devoted to the way of the warrior, and believes in absolute justice.

  • Badass Baritone: In stark contrast to Pippin's voice.
  • Badass Normal: Despite not being a Fencer, he makes short work of Fang and his party when they fight for the first time.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He comes back as a spirit to help the party when they're losing against the Evil Goddess
  • Blood from the Mouth: After he's beaten for the first time, showing that he doesn't have much time left.
  • Grey-and-Gray Morality: How he sees the world, saying that the opposite of justice isn't evil, but just a different version of justice.
  • Old Soldier: He's Pippins father, who's already implied to be pretty old at this point, and he's still a competent fighter.
  • So Proud of You: Says this to Pippin as he's dying.
  • Spam Attack: One of his attacks is just him repeatedly stabbing his target.


Voiced by: Ari Ozawa (Japanese)

A young girl working for the Septerion Club. According to Sherman, she looks very similar to his deceased sister.

  • Affably Evil: She's pretty polite despite working for the Septerion Club. When she's saved by Fang near the start of the Evil Goddess Route, she gladly treats him to a large feast and pays for their rooms at the Sunflower Inn.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She comes back as a spirit to help the party when they're losing to the Evil Goddess.
  • Defecting for Love: Was originally sent to keep an eye on Sherman by Junown, only to end up falling for him and deciding to help him for real.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: She ends up Taking the Bullet for Sherman, only for him to die a few minutes later anyway.


How well does it match the trope?
