Students

    Lillet Blan 
The main protagonist.

  • Cute Witch: Adorable, and a witch.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: In the final loop, successfully scams Grimmlet, a demon, when she offers to enter a Deal with the Devil. Grimmlet would get her soul in exchange for something on his end, which Lillet requests to be that he embrace God, something that as a demon, she knows he can't do. Since neither a human or a demon can back out of a contract once its set up, Grimmlet is Dragged Off to Hell for breaking it.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave: Runs into this at the end of the first loop. All the teachers, aside from Advocat died stopping Grimmlet, Amoretta being sacrificed in the process, and Margarita was killed by Calvaros.
    • Her attempt to prevent everyone dying stopping Grimmlet on the second loop fails as well, instead they still die, this time with Grimmlet killing everyone and taking complete control over Gammel's body.
  • Guile Hero: One of the more epic ones.
  • Hot Witch: In the Epilogue.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Starts off as a Naive Every Girl who develops into a Guile Hero over the course of the loops. Most notably she goes from quivering in Grimmlet's presence to conning him into a Logic Bomb.

Lillet's dorm mate. She has a frog familiar named Surely.

  • Dub Name Change: Margarita Frozen became Margarita Surprise.
  • The Mole: She is really a servant of Calvaros trying to free him.

    Amoretta Virgine

    Bartido Ballentyne 
A boisterous student that is often seen with Chartreuse.

    Hiram Menthe 
A student that is often seen with Opalneria.

Instructors

    Gammel Dore 
The headmaster of the Tower of Silver Star.

    Opalneria Rain 
The necromancy instructor. Maintains a youthful appearance through magic.

  • Dark Is Not Evil: She invokes this trope. As she states there is nothing evil about necromancy.
  • Necromancer: Her specialty.
  • Older Than They Look: Gets even worse when she changes her appearance to a schoolgirl's to make things more "suitable" for her Hot for Student role.
  • Tsundere: Opalneria has been described as... passionate.
  • Really 700 Years Old: It's not stated how old she is, but she is using her magic to make herself look younger.
  • Vain Sorceress: Opalneria is way older than she looks, but she keeps using magic to look younger.

    Chartreuse Grande 
The alchemy instructor. Looks like a lion, but he's more concerned with furthering his studies than breaking his curse.

  • Half-Human Hybrid: Although it should be noted he's actually a normal human cursed into a half-beast form.

    Advocat 
The sorcery instructor, and an actual demon.

  • All-Powerful Bystander: Doesn't take Calvaros for threat implying he could stop him easily. Grimmlet even treats Advocat as a possible threat, but with both villains Advocat doesn't get involved directly.
  • Affably Evil: His goal is ultimately to get people to sign away their souls in a Deal with the Devil, but who still genuinely seems to enjoy his friendship with Gammel Dore and the others at the school. He's actually on your side in every iteration, but he admits himself that it's purely because he can't get anyone's soul if they die first.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Dialogue by himself and Grimmlet imply he's far more powerful than he lets on, with the former actually treating him as a potential threat. Nonetheless he's not interested in getting his hands dirty.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Literally, but subverted in that he's not one of the villains.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He is a devil who teach sorcery.
  • Hypocrite: When he and Grimmlet meet face to face, Advocat convinces him to not start a fight by saying "When devils fight each other, only the priests win." In the final loop, when Grimmlet has been conned by Lillet, Advocat shows up and laughs his ass off. Grimmlet asks if he was behind it, and Advocat admits it wasn't but he wishes it was. He doesn't start a fight with another demon, but he does still imply he would gladly arrange for something like Lillet scamming one for his own amusement.
  • I Was Just Passing Through: On one iteration, he saves everyone by asking Grimlit to kill you last, using the argument that he wants your soul, and knowing that if you survive to the fifth day you'll be able to rewind time and fix things. He justifies this by saying that he can't get everyone's soul if Grimlet kills them first, but it's implied he does care about Gammel Dore and the students to an {{.
  • Large Ham: And how.
  • Not Me This Time: When he shows up to rub salt in the wound after Lillet conned Grimmlet, Grimmlet asks if Advocat was behind it. Advocat having so much fun watching, Grimmlet's accusation, not to mention Advocat himself admitting he wished he was behind, implies he has been known to pull such tricks in the past.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He opposes Grimlet indirectly, mostly because he doesn't get anyone's soul if they die before signing a contract with him.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He takes the Snape role with relish.
  • Wild Card: He is a devil who could exploit the situation to his benefit if he wanted to, but he knows he has very little to gain personally from the conflict and is content with simply observing the events. In the ending however, he's so impressed with Lillet's outsmarting of Grimlet that he personally backs her deal with him.

Others

    Lujei Piche 
A ghost that haunts the Tower of Silver Star. Keeps her former lover's animated skull on her staff.

  • Cute Ghost Girl: Maintains a sexy appearance despite being incorporeal.
  • Necromancer: When she was alive.
  • Yandere: She killed the man she loved (who didn't really love her back) so she could reanimate and keep his skull forever.

    Calvaros 
The sinister sorcerer that once tried to conquer the world, whose tower was converted into the Tower of Silver Star wizarding school.

  • The Archmage: Right down to his title.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Grimmlet. Both of them are out to Take Over the World, and Lillet's problem is finding a way to stop one without leaving the other free.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He is an Evil Sorcerer, and definitely talks the part.
  • Evil Overlord: Formerly fought to Take Over the World and even after he was defeated still has some servants aiming to free him.
  • Kick the Dog: Boasts in the first loop that after Margarita freed him, he killed her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The game starts off mostly lighthearted. Then Calvaros shows up and explains to Lillet that everyone is dead and he will resume he war for world conquest.
  • Sorcerous Overlord: He is an evil sorcerer out for world domination, and aims to use Grimmlet's minions to help with it.

    Grimmlet 
A demon that Calvaros bargained with for great power.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Calvaros. Grimmlet is the more powerful of the two, and unfortunately releasing him is the only way to ensure Calvaros doesn't run free.
  • Deal with the Devil: Cut one with Calvaros in the past to lend him an army. Calvaros is very determined to make sure he doesn't have to fulfill his end of the deal and give up his soul.
    • Lillet cuts one with him, that turns out to be a Wishplosion since her deal was for Grimmlet to embrace God, something that as a demon, he can't do. As a result he is Dragged Off to Hell for breaking the contract.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: His fate in the final loop. Lillet offers her soul to him, and to Grimmlet's shock she asks for him to embrace God. As a demon, he can't and is sent back to Hell for breaking the contract.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Of the Holy Burns Evil type. Amoretta can give up her life to defeat him.
  • Logic Bomb: Is subjected to a non AI one by Lillet. She offers him her soul, in exchange for him embracing God. Grimmlet can't do that, and he can't back out of the contract, so he's Dragged Off to Hell.
