Advertisement:

     Common to All 
  • Battle Harem: All the ladies of the group, are either directly devoted to Lute, or devoted to someone who is devoted to him, one way or another and is either a fearsome fighter herself, or provides the tools to make everyone else a more fearsome fighter.
  • Love Dodecahedron: The girls aren't only interested in Lute, some of them have complex inter-personal relationships too, for example, Luna has openly proposed marriage to Chrisse, and Chrisse views Snow as a Cool Big Sis.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Modern firearms, as a magical tool, are so outside the realm of experience in the world that few people can counter them, and even then the team has ways of working around that!
  • Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: To date we have: a teenage boy who crafts these bizarre metal tubes that hurt you at a distance by making a loud sound which can hurl hunks of metal at you faster than you can see, a frost-wolf Beast Man who, in addition to using the above, is a certified A- rank magician specializing in ice and snow magic, an Elegant Gothic Lolita Day Walking Vampire who can kill you dead from over a kilometer away, and you'll never see it coming, a Mad Scientist lady of the Dragon race who worships the creator of those strange magical tools like a god, and not only is she rich enough for her coffers to rival a country, but she devotes all of that wealth to him and his exploits, a dark-elf Ninja Maid who is deadly up close with knives, but uses these round things that explode, and not one but two high-elf princesses!

     Lute 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lute.jpg
All-clear!
The Protagonist
Preferred Weapon: Ak-47 light machine gun.
  • Above the Influence: Subverted. He held out until he was married, true, but only because he wanted his first time to be truly special. Even after marriage, he didn't feel comfortable in an inn, or someone else's home, so he, Snow, and Chrisse go and rent a nice 3 BR, 1 bath house. Upon coming out of the bath, he dithers as he tries to think up the best possible permutation so everyone goes to bed happy... until he sees Chrisse and Snow in his bed, wearing lingerie and saying things like "eat me up," at which point he just goes "SCREW IT! I'm going in!" we don't get the details, but everyone was clearly satisfied the next morning.
  • Accomplice by Inaction: He stumbles upon a classmate and friend being horribly bullied, but being outnumbered, outgunned, and outclassed, turns and walks away. Said friend winds up Driven to Suicide. Even unto the present, Lute holds himself guilty for it.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: He loves to show the ladies in his harem affection by rubbing their heads. They like it so much, some of them are on-screen saying that it's addictive.
  • The Atoner: When he wakes up in the new world, he makes it his life's mission to never, ever turn his back on someone suffering again, to atone for the death of his friend in high-school, who was bullied to suicide.
  • Chekhov's Hobby: His fascination with military tech in Japan allows him to make modern firearms in this new world.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Snow, whom he's known since infancy.
  • Child Prodigy: Initially dismissed as sub-par because he's got almost no talent for magic, he soon becomes praised as a child genius when the modern firearms he makes repeatedly save his fellow orphans from monsters.
  • Contrived Coincidence: After he's finished constructing and testing his S&W 10 prototype, he is itching for a field test, but can't figure out how to convince Eru-sensei to let him go goblin hunting in the nearby forest. Fortunately for him, some goblins "volunteer" by coming out of the forest and attacking his fellow orphans, including Snow. It was a Curbstomp Battle in his favor.
  • Covert Pervert: Well, he tries to be covert about his perversions. He fails, as his wives always pick up on it.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: If he has reason to suspect some other guy is sniffing around his love interests, he will get enraged beyond reason, and the manga illustrates him with Scary Teeth, biting into solid steel.
  • Curious as a Monkey: He's always been a handful to Eru-sensei because he'd constantly be underfoot, trying to do things way, way beyond his ken, until he almost gets himself killed by trying to use body enhancement magic, and Eru-sensei booted him out of class with Tranquil Fury and a Death Glare.
  • The Determinator: He had to work for an entire year to master the design of an AK-47.
  • Dragged into Drag: The very first thing that happens to him when he's bought by count Dan Gate Vlad and brought home, is being shoved into a maid outfit, because for the year or so that he was in captivity, Lute's hair grew to shoulder length, and Dan mistook him for a girl.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: When circumstances force him to get Chrisse up to snuff in a hurry, to defend her life from her two Evil Uncle, he has to play this role, down to the humiliating and abusive insults. When he's called out on it, he pointedly proclaims that he'd never, ever treat her that way if it wasn't absolutely necessary for her training, and she agrees.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: During the year in captivity, his hair grew to shoulder-length, and even though he was advertised as a boy, his first buyer mistook him for a girl.
  • An Entrepreneur Is You: Tired of being forced to play as a pet in "playing house" with his fellow orphans, he introduces the game, Reversi. A passing merchant sees the children playing and asks him for marketing rights. Lute negotiates a contract that allows the merchant to market Reversi as his own, in exchange for giving him a barrel of "Magic Liquid Metal" which is what allows Lute to craft modern firearms and ammunition.
  • Fatal Flaw: Naivete and overconfidence. He's too trusting and tends to put too much faith in his weapons and abilities, causing him to struggle when his mouth writes a check he can't cash. For example, when Gigi tells him that should he find himself facing an A-ranked mage, he should focus all his efforts on escaping, not fighting, he states he should be able to do something. Along comes Dan, an A-ranked mage, insisting on a "friendly spar."
  • Good Is Not Soft: Mess with him and his, and he will show no mercy, presuming he gets to call the shots.
  • Happiness in Slavery: In the beloved servant category. The wealthy family who buys him treats him as family, with genuine affection, even training him in close quarters combat to make him even deadlier. In fact, they even let him marry Chrisse, the daughter they bought him for.
  • Happily Married: To Snow and Chrisse.
  • Harem Seeker: After Snow brought on Chrisse as wife #2, he threw the idea of monogamy out the window, and now he will happily reciprocate the affections of any girl who seeks him out romantically if she passes Snow's smell test, and is fine with the idea of being in a polygamous marriage with him.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: When puberty hits, he goes full-tilt pervert, even being accused of Male Gaze by Eru-sensei.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Met his death from being stabbed over and over by the bully ring-leader who brutalized him in high-school, and wound up a Future Loser.
  • Made a Slave: Shortly after signing up with the adventurer's guild, he's approached by what appears to be a senior adventuring party, who offers to show him the ropes, and has him cornered. He accepts only to learn, too late, that they're all fakes, who drug him, tie him up, steal all his equipment, destroy his engagement ring from Snow, and then sell him into slavery, laughing all the while.
  • A Match Made in Stockholm: With Chrisse, the sweet, shy, absolutely adorable little vampire girl to whom he was given as a sweet-sixteen birthday present.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: During his formative years, he didn't spend much time with the other orphans, usually being found in a corner doing his own thing, and this made the rest, including Snow, a bit put off. When the monster attacks came, though, everyone quickly realized that he was actually working on the firearms he would need to keep them all safe, and they're grateful.
  • One-Note Cook: He doesn't have any cooking skill aside from making sweets. Since the vast majority, if not all, of the ladies in his harem have a powerful Sweet Tooth, this serves him just fine.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The second most favorite part of his day is snack-time in the afternoon, where he serves up various sweets for his ladies to enjoy.
  • Reincarnate In Another World: Gets stabbed to death on his way home in Japan, wakes up as a baby in an orphanage of another world.
  • Sex Slave: What he feared he'd be when he found himself in slavery, and this is one of the kinder fates he was expecting. Fortunately, he winds up with the Vlad family, as the Property of Love for sweet little Chrisse.
  • Shoot the Bullet: Combined with Improbable Aiming Skills. Even with enhancing magic buffing his body and vision, shooting an arrow in flight out of the sky is an impressive feat.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: His knowledge of crafting and using modern firearms makes him a force to be reckoned with, but because he was raised in a back-water orphanage, doesn't know about most of the horrors of the world. As such, he invariably takes way too much at face value. In short, you've got one shot at him to screw him over. Take it, and he survives? He will hunt you down, to retaliate with lethal force.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Combined with Stock Shōnen Hero. Not only does he make himself stronger with training and practice, but he expands his toolbox with new weapons and harem members.
  • Survivor's Guilt: When he gets chased down by the bully ring-leader, and stabbed to death, his final thoughts are him believing he's getting his comeuppance for letting his friend be bullied to suicide.
  • Their First Time: Combined with Three-Way Sex. After getting married to two women he loves and renting a house for the three of them to live in, both his wives get dressed up in elegant sleep wear and then take up "come hither" poses on his bed. His response is to have the chains of his reason snap and takes them up on their offer.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Going after Lute is bad enough, but threaten his love interests, and you can kiss any hope of mercy goodbye.
  • Tuck and Cover: He repeatedly shields his love interests with his own body by this method, especially Princess Lisse.
  • Unwanted Harem: Not that he's complaining, but he certainly didn't ask to have several very attractive women constantly throw themselves at him, two of which he winds up married to.
  • Young Gun: Justified. Since he began introducing modern firearms to this new world, as a child, he's a crack shot, leading training and leading other crack shots.

     Snow 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snow1.jpg
Hug me more, Lute!
Lute's first love and childhood friend.
Preferred Weapon: S&W 10 revolver X2
  • The Ace: Upon graduating from the orphanage's magic curriculum, and then the mage academy, she was officially ranked an A-class mage.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: During her childhood years, Lute had to help hear learn math, and we're not talking convoluted word problems or calculus, we're talking at the level of 1+1=2, and it took several sessions before she could get it. Dyscalculia is a very real neural disorder that makes simple math very, very hard for some people.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Being a snow-wolf, she's very sensitive to heat, so she wears clothes as light as possible. She shows off her belly as a result.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: As a small child, she loved to tease and provoke Lute, seeing him as just a nuisance to Eru-sensei. When he gained the upper hand, she feared he would retaliate. Instead, he doted on her and never failed to treat her kindly. She began to develop feelings for him as a result.
  • Berserk Button: Do not badmouth Lute, or claim she's not worthy to wield the S&W 10 he gifted her. The first time that happened on-screen, she pointed the gun at the offender's forehead and told her Get Out!
  • The Bet: Combined with Secret Test of Character. When she meets with Chrisse, she pushes for Chrisse to give Lute a Love Confession, and if Lute chooses her, well, so be it, but if Lute says Snow has a special place in his heart, then Chrisse will be the second wife. Lute reciprocates Chrisse's confession but states he's faithful to Snow, so Snow shows up and welcomes Chrisse to the family, to the joy of everyone.
  • But Now I Must Go: Is separated for years from Lute because she had to go to magic academy, where he could not follow.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She's known Lute since both of them were infants and is madly in love with him.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Very, very clingy, but not jealous.
  • Genius Ditz: She's very, very talented in magic and firearms, even graduating early from mage academy, but she otherwise lacks the good sense the gods gave to common rocks!
  • Guns Akimbo: When not using magic, prefers to fight with two S&W 10, one in each hand, though she's a fair shot with an Ak-47 too.
  • Happily Married: To Lute.
  • An Ice Person: She specializes in ice-based magic.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Has a wolf's ears, fangs, and tail, but is otherwise fully human.
  • Mage Marksman: She's very talented in both wielding ice-based magic and firearms, whether it's the AK-47, or the S&W 10.
  • Rescue Romance: What sealed the deal in the Childhood Friend Romance is that Lute, with his perfected S&W 10, beat back some goblins and saved her life.
  • Wacky Marriage Proposal: She offers to stay at Lute's side as his Sex Slave! Lute retorts that he doesn't want that, instead whipping out a bracelet and asking for her hand in marriage. She accepts.

     Chrisse Gate Vlad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/18_1_4.jpg
Why is this boy in a maid uniform?
The teenage girl Lute was bought for, as a birthday present.
Preferred Weapon: M700p sniper rifle.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sweet girl she may be, but mess with her loved ones, and she will torment you with her sniper rifle.
  • The Cutie: Oh, she is just so adorable, on both sides of the fourth wall.
  • Does Not Like Men: Being bullied by her classmates for being born without the ability to use magic, despite the fact that her parents are A and B rank mages, had her terrified of boys. Lute doting on her and feeding her pudding has her slowly come out of her shell, to the joy of her entire household.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Against her evil uncles and their Arranged Marriage candidate. The thugs brutalized her most of her life, especially the self-proclaimed fiance, who beat her, and threatened to cuckold Lute, by crippling him and raping her, right in his face. Once Lute provided her with a sniper rifle, and taught her how to use it, she had him begging for mercy, with the army that he was leading thinking it would have been more merciful if she just killed him.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: How she normally dresses.
  • Friendly Sniper: She's a sweetheart, but she's absolutely deadly with a sniper-rifle. She just hasn't wanted to kill anyone, yet, as of this writing.
  • Grew a Spine: She spent most of her life curled up in her room, deathly afraid to come out, thanks to bullying from her male relatives from outside her main family, and her male school-mates. A bit of combat training from Lute, and she's not afraid to stare down her enemies, crippling them with her trusty sniper rifle, or whatever tool Lute provides her.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a total sweetheart, and she's golden haired-blonde.
  • Happily Married: To Lute.
  • Instant Expert: She's got incredibly good combat instincts. She's even more talented than her father, an A+ ranked mage and top class adventurer. The first time she's in a fight, helping Lute, she completely dominates by using his sawed-off shotgun, a weapon she's never even held before. Then she gets her hands on a sniper rifle and completely cowes the army sent after her when her mother is being rescued.
  • Intimidation Demonstration: She shoots the wine-glasses right out of the hands of her evil uncles when they're at the surrender table, just to make it clear that she can, and will, kill them, or the ones they care about, at any time, if they dare repeat their villainy again, and they'll never see it coming.
  • Love Confession: One of the only few times she actually speaks aloud, is to tell Luke that she likes him, romantically, and to ask for his hand in marriage. Lute reciprocates and tells her he loves her too, but he's faithful to Snow. At this point, she turns around, concedes to Snow's terms to be Lute's second wife, and is then welcomed to the family.
  • Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe: Since she was born with no aptitude for magic, people frequently accuse her mother of being unfaithful to Dan, just to spite her, personally. As can be expected, this is a huge Trauma Button for her.
  • Older Than They Look: She's at least 16 years old, legally an adult, but because she's of the Vampire race, she looks like a pre-teen.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: If she's speaking, whatever she's saying must be very, very important.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: The only vampire weakness she has, is silver which acts like a deadly poison for her. While she can drink blood, in fact, blood is treated as a delicacy, she doesn't have to.
  • The Quiet One: She almost never talks. She prefers to write on a chalkboard when she wants to say something.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her eyes are red, and she's usually a total sweetheart, but she's an Instant Expert in battle, and is absolutely deadly with a good sniper rifle.
  • Serious Business: Don't skimp or cut corners in making sweets!
  • Shrinking Violet: She's extremely shy.
  • Super Senses: Even for vampires of the setting, her vision's super-sharp.
  • Sweet Tooth: She loves sweets more than anything else.
  • Through His Stomach: Lute wins her over by making pudding for her.

     Meiya Dragoon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meiya_drargoon.jpg
The first time I tried to use my prototype, it blew up spectacularly, where do I go from here?!
A well known magical tool designer who becomes obsessed with Lute's firearms, since they're far better than anything she can hope to make.
Preferred Weapon: MK-16 automatic grenade launcher.
  • Ascended Fangirl: Once she actually meets Lute, and realizes he's the genuine article, she bends over backwards to be his apprentice.
  • Cargo Cult: She worships Lute like a god, to his chagrin, because she idolizes the firearms and other modern weapons he crafts, using Magic Liquid Metal, the rare, expensive dross gained from hunting metals slimes, and usually also occurs as leftovers from designing other magical tools.
  • Cargo Ship: In universe. While she has no romantic interest in Lute, she has shown romantic interest in his firearms.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Is introduced trying to drink herself into a stupor because she can't figure out how to replicate Lute's S&W 10.
  • Famed in Story: Prior to Lute, she was The Ace when it came to making magical devices, building a tool that could swap out magical stones, in the heat of battle. Being outshone by Lute hurt her pride immensely.
  • Mad Scientist: She's obsessed with firearms because they're the epitome of magical tools, which she can't even begin to understand without Lute's aid.
  • The Not-Love Interest: She has absolutely no romantic interest in Lute, she's just obsessed with the firearms he can make. This serves Snow just fine as she'd never give the okay for her to marry Lute anyway.
  • Saying Too Much: In trying to badger Snow to sell her S&W 10 for analysis, she says two things she shouldn't have. 1.) Lute died to monsters. 2.) Snow is far less worthy of the weapon than herself. This results in Snow putting said weapon right up against her forehead, and stating, in perfect Tranquil Fury, Get Out!
  • The Team Benefactor: Once she badgers Lute enough to make herself his apprentice in building firearms, she mobilizes her massive fortune to serve his cause.

     Xiah 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3_1_6.jpg
Roger!
Lisse's maid and personal bodyguard.
Preffered Weapon: Knives and grenades.
  • Defensive Feint Trap: When she's charged by a giant scorpion, she plays dead until the scorpion is almost atop her so it crashes into the tree behind her, and she takes advantage of the brief opening to stab it with Lute's "Wasp Knife," killing it.
  • Dual Wielding: Usually fights with one dagger/short-sword in each hand.
  • Knife Nut: Prefers fighting with knives, which has Lute provide her with the modern "Wasp Knife."
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Even if the entire kingdom is against Lisse, she will still be Lisse's faithful servant.
  • Ninja Maid: Competent maid and powerful combatant even better than rank-2 adventurers.
  • Our Elves Are Different: She's a dark-elf with a lifespan of approximately 500 years.
  • The Stoic: Almost nothing fazes her. Even when her clothes are shredded to the point she can barely cover her modesty, it doesn't affect her battle performance. After the battle is over... is a different story.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: When she wants to go for the kill and knives won't cut it, she loves to spam grenades on her foes.
  • Undying Loyalty: Will give her life for Lisse, if need be.
  • Waif-Fu: Fights with moves focused on agility, leaps, twists and turns.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's illustrated as a very light shade of pink.

     Lisse Eonel Memea 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6_05.jpg
Please, Lute, you're our only hope
The second princess of the elven kingdom, Elonel.
Preferred Weapon: PKM Heavy machine gun or Ak-47 light machine gun.
  • Buxom Is Better: Her breasts are the largest in the harem.
  • The Cassandra: She repeatedly warns her kingdom that the seal holding one of the Demon King's most dangerous generals is going to break and they need Lute and his Battle Harem to deal with it. Few believe her, even though her words are backed by a log her elder sister wrote, and she has the power to see the freaking future! When the seal does eventually break, as a result of an enemy attack, the same naysayers who doubted her turned around and tried to blame her for it.
  • City Mouse: She is so accustomed to living in the city, and only passing through wilderness on a quick carriage ride, that the first time she goes camping, she does everything wrong, even dropping like a rock to sleep when it was her turn to be on watch.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: She's got a good heart, and it's in the right place, but she's crippled by poor self-esteem thanks to a lifetime of ridicule and abuse, being called "Loser Princess" because her very, very rare ability is lackluster, and she doesn't have the same grooming to rule that her elder sister has.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Justified. She and her entourage get attacked by monsters close enough to where Lute, Snow, Chrisse, and Meiya are field testing weapons for Snow to smell the blood. The justification comes from the fact that Lisse was following a log written by her sister who can see the future, and she was actively looking for Lute, expecting him to be in the area.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's prone to tripping all over her own feet. Perhaps because her center of gravity is messed up?
  • Gag Boobs: Her breasts are so large, they don't fit her frame. Lute even lampshades it.
  • Gun Nut: The recoil she feels from firing the automatic or semi-automatic weapons Lute provides her give her orgasmic pleasure.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a total sweetheart, and she's blonde.
  • Hammerspace: Her gods' granted skill allows her to store any and every non-living thing she wants in an alternate dimension, and pull it out again at her leisure.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: For her entire life, she's been looked down on because her gods' given gift is "Infinite Storage" which allows her to store any non-living thing she wants in an alternate dimension. Not only does this make her an excellent porter for a field army, but proves to be the only way to take down the monster "Infinite Dragon" which can regenerate from any injury and becomes immune to any weapon or spell used against it. The reason being, "Infinite Dragon" needs to re-absorb its severed body, and if the body-parts are sucked into another dimension, it can't do that!
  • Healing Hands: She specializes in healing magic.
  • Law of Inverse Fertility: Because elves are a very long-lived race, they have poor birth-rates. She is no exception.
  • Made Out to Be a Jerkass: The leader of the naysayer faction puts out a bounty to kidnap Chrisse, with the mercenaries grabbing Luna instead, has said mercenaries offer an ultimatum, exile Lute and party or the youngest princess dies, and when Lute and co are exiled, and the barrier stone is broken, as Lisse warned was going to happen, the leader of her naysayers swoops in and accuses her of Engineered Heroics, stating that she broke the barrier stone herself, just so she could look like a hero by trying to stop the monsters.
  • Our Elves Are Better: As a high elf, she has a lifespan of up to 10,000 years, provided she doesn't suffer mortal injury, illness, or loss of cognitive function, which tends to happen when elves exceed 2000 years.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's thousands of years old, but as a high-elf, with a lifespan of nearly 10,000 years, she looks like she's a teen.
  • Red Baron: "Loser Princess" by her naysayers.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She crossed the ocean to another continent to try and find Lute, because she believed her sister's prophecy about the seal on Infinte Dragon breaking, while the rest of her kingdom was too busy seeing how far they could shove their heads up their own backsides!
  • Thanks for the Mammary: She trips and accidentally shoves her breasts into Lute's hands!
  • The Unfavorite: The vast majority of her kindgom's nobility, including her own father, think the kingdom would be doomed if she ascends the throne, not for any moral failings or character shortcomings, but because her gods' given gift is lackluster, and she is willing to put meaningless elven pride aside to ask other races for help, before the situation gets too dire to deal with.

     Luna Eonel Memea 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7_3_8.jpg
Whee! Thanks for the adventure, Chrisse!
Lisse's younger sister.
Preferred Weapon: To be determined.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Since she's under 100, she has yet to reach the age of maturity, but loves to strut around as if she's already a full grown-up, making her constantly underfoot.
  • Birds of a Feather: She and Chrisse have so much in common, they could be long-lost sisters! The most obvious example is their shared love for sweets, to the point that they engage in Romantic Spoon Feeding, with each other, to the point of absolute brazenness! They don't even care if Lute's watching!
  • Bond Creature: She rides a giant wolf named Lexi who is completely bound to her.
  • Cheerful Child: She's a very happy and well-adjusted little girl.
  • Hair Decorations: Wears a giant bow in her hair.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blonde and a sweet child who loves heroic tales and wants to go on adventures.
  • Identical Stranger: Her "human" disguise looks very, very similar to Chrisse. This causes her to get kidnapped when Frackus's faction goes after Chrisse as part of a ploy to get Lute's party out of the country.
  • Love at First Sight: And it's mutual. When she laid eyes on Chrisse, she immediately proposed marriage. Chrisse responds that she would have taken her up on it, if she hadn't already married Lute first!
    Luna: "Chrisse-chan is so cute! I want to marry you right away!"
    Chrisse: "No...You can't do it because I'm Oniichan's wife already!"
    Lute: "Can you please not seduce another person's wife during snack time?"
  • Made a Slave: Subverted. When Alsend's henchmen realized they had the elven princess captive, rather than Chrisse, they smuggled her out of the border in a cage, heading to the slave market. Fortunately for Luna, Lute anticipated this and laid a trap for the scoundrels, wiping them out and rescuing her.
  • Skinship Grope: She is quite fond of groping and harassing Lisse's ginormous tits to get her way.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Her father, the king, dotes on her like crazy, and has great difficulty telling her "no." This is what makes her so adorable.

Antagonists:

     The Bully 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bully.jpg
How are you going to make it up to me for ruining my life, eh?!
  • The Bully: He's the ring-leader of the gang who bullied Lute in Japan, and drove Lute's friend to suicide.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: As he's stabbing the Japanese man who would reincarnate into Lute over, and over, and over to death, his yelling contains the word "Fuck" or some derivative for every second or third word. "Fuck! You Fucker! It's all your fucking fault! FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!"
  • Future Loser: He was the top-dog in high-school, brutalizing any class-mate that didn't meet his sense of aesthetics, until Lute's unnamed friend was Driven to Suicide. The backlash destroyed his life and prospects. When he manages to track Lute down, he's nothing more than a bum with a grudge and an attitude.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: Of course, the teachers turned a blind eye to his bullying gang until it got so bad that at least one of his victims was Driven to Suicide, leaving behind a suicide letter, pointing the finger back at him and his gang. Since this made waves, all of a sudden, they had to answer for it.
  • Moral Myopia: He saw nothing wrong with brutalizing classmates to the point that they committed suicide, but he's inconvenienced by the backlash? They're "fuckers" that deserve to be hunted down and killed.
  • Never My Fault: He blames Lute for the fact that he brutalized someone to suicide, and his life was ruined by the consequences.
  • No Name Given: His name is never mentioned.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Subverted. His parents, and the parents of his bullying gang, bailed them out of legal trouble, by paying the victims' parents a cash settlement, out of court. Unfortunately for him, the fact that he ran a brutal gang that bullied fellow class-mates to the point of suicide became public knowledge, destroying his life and prospects.

     Twin Fanged Beast 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twin_fanged_beast.jpg
The meat of children is just so tasty, especially eating it right in front of their parents, BWAHAHAHAHA!
  • Anti-Magic: Just in case he runs into magicians, he equips himself and his top goons with shields that negate magic. Of course, he attacks Lute and Snow, who can also use guns, which aren't magic.
  • An Axe to Grind: Fights with a pair of throwing axes.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He boasts and brags of his villainy.
  • Dirty Coward: Hides behind his minions, and trees, until Lute runs out of ammo, then swoops in, and gloats.
  • Evil Gloating: His favorite pass-time is boasting and bragging how evil he is, and relishing the wails of despair from his victims.
  • For the Evulz: When he's asked why he raids villages, if his need for food can be met by hunting wild animals, he retorts that he attacks villages just because he enjoys it.
  • Homing Projectile: His throwing axes home in on his intended target.
  • Ironic Echo: "The best way to make an enemy fall into your trap, is to make him think you've fallen into his!" is said when he thinks he's got Lute cornered, to later learn that Lute lured him in with a Defensive Feint Trap and put the last bullet in his AK-47's chamber right in his heart, straight through his plate-mail.
  • Starter Villain: Aside from some mindless goblins, he's the first antagonist Lute has to go up against in this new world.
  • Villains Want Mercy: When he finds himself on the receiving end of a mortal wound, he begs for leniency, promises to give up his evil ways, and even offers up a treasure hoard if his life is spared. Lute doesn't believe any of it, and both he and Snow shoot him in the head, so he's Killed Off for Real.
  • Would Hurt a Child: As is listed in the page quote, his favorite food is the internal organs of small children, doubly so if he can eat them alive and screaming, right in front of their helpless parents.

     The fake adventurers 

As a whole:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fakes.jpg
Hahaha! You will make us a pretty penny on the slave market, Lute-kun!
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: They approach rookie adventurers, pretend to be adventurer seniors, even providing practical, and genuine, adventuring advice, and once they've got their prey's guard down, drug them, strip them of valuables, and sell them into slavery to the Monster Continent.
  • Con Man: They have a long history of tricking rookie adventurers, stripping them of valuables, and selling them into slavery.
  • Evil Gloating: When Lute wakes up, tied up and helpless, they taunt him for being gullible and naive enough to be exploited by con-men who have a long, long history of tricking, trapping, and enslaving rookie adventurers.
  • Faking the Dead: They make it look like Lute's dead to the adventurer's guild before selling him to slavers in the Monster Continent.
  • Kick the Dog: They destroy the engagement bracelet Lute got from Snow, just for laughs, while he's tied up and helpless.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Had they not sold Lute into slavery, he wouldn't have been there to help the Vlad house in their hour of need.
    • Stealing Luke's guns and selling them to Meyia opened the avenue for Lute to later have her as an ally, with her massive fortune and magical tool expertise being a major boon to him.
  • Smug Snake: They love to preen and boast of how "superior" they are to the adventurers they've conned and captured.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: They're able to take Lute captive because they drugged his meal with powerful sedatives and truth-serums, magically making him incapable of resting telling them how his firearms work.

Alsed:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alsed.jpg
Hahaha! The gods really like to play these fateful encounters! Well, let this be the last time we meet, because this time, I'm going for your throat!
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/17_75.jpg
It doesn't matter even if I knew where the other two are, because today is the day you die!
The first of the three fakes to be encountered by Lute after he's freed from slavery.
  • The Bus Came Back: Reenters the story in the elven kingdom of Eonel, as the ringleader of the kidnap group that captured Luna, thinking she was Chrisse.
  • Cat Boy: He's a cat-man.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: After getting doped up, he goes into a fugue and starts shouting the praises of "our lord", likely indicating the Demon King.
  • Dual Wielding: Fights with twin knives, until he doses up, and then fights with just teeth and claws.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: When he and Lute meet again just outside the elven kingdom's borders, he asks if Lute is there to thwart him in revenge for being conned and sold into slavery. Lute retorts that he didn't even know this asshole was there.
  • Eye Scream: When Lute gets past his defenses, he takes a dagger to the eye.
  • Hulking Out: Almost immediately after injecting himself with a syringe full of Super Serum, his arm and leg muscles bulge to the point where his clothes strain against them, his canines grow so long and sharp there's no way they would fit in his mouth if he closes it, and his finger-nails grow to claws the size of a kitchen knife.
  • Moral Myopia: Which Lute calls him out on. He has a long history of tricking rookie adventurers, selling them into slavery, and when he re-encounters Lute near the elven border, sadistically torments him by holding back just enough to wear Lute down before going for the kill, but Lute takes advantage of an opening to launch a dagger into his eye, and then shoot him, and Lute's the cowardly bastard.
    "The word 'coward' coming from someone who tricks beginner adventurers and sells them as slaves means nothing."
  • Phlebotinum Overload: One syringe boost makes him a juggernaut with a powerful healing factor, making him damn difficult to hit, and allowing him to recover from whatever damage Lute and party can do to him, but when Snow manages to drop him by stealing away his body-heat with her ice-magic, he goes for a second dose and has his blood erupt from his wounds like a geyser, causing him to fall face-down into a pool of his own blood, dead.
  • Revenge Myopia: He swears bloody vengeance on Lute for all the harm he's received when Lute shot him, in self-defense, despite gloating about how he had wronged Lute in the first place, and threatened to rape Lute's wives, Snow and Chrisse, before selling them into slavery.
  • Self-Disposing Villain: Lute doesn't have to kill him, as he accidentally kills himself when he overdoses on his Super Serum.
  • The Sociopath: He's got no empathy for anyone aside from himself, loves to see others suffer, and torments his victims, but when he's harmed, he goes into an apoplectic rage.
  • Super Serum: He doses on some kind of serum in a syringe, to boost his combat abilities and allow him to use magic, which he didn't have to ability to do before.

Aikent:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aikent.jpg
These are some good weapons. They're too good for a stupid, naive brat like you!
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar across his left cheek and is an evil sot who happily takes advantage of rookie adventurers, selling them into slavery after stripping them of valuables.
  • Humans Are Special: Implied. While the others were nominally rank 2, he was rank 3.
  • Kick the Dog: It was his idea to destroy Lute's engagement bracelet, calling it "trash," while Lute was tied up and helpless.
  • The Leader: He's the one that lead the party of three fakes when they were all together. Current whereabouts unknown as of this writing.
  • Token Human: Of the entire party, he's the only human.

Misha:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/misha_7.jpg
Hahaha! Can't believe there is someone stupid enough to take the bait so quickly!

     Pyrukenen and Ranovi Vlad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/13_31.jpg
Hahaha! Time to end your insolence, little brother Dan!
Dan's elder brothers.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: They use their noble title, and the fact that they're Dan's elder brothers, to browbeat everyone they come across, until their title is stripped away at the end of the arc.
  • Bad Boss: They abuse all their underlings, even Gigi.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: For the Monster Continent Arc.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Dan's Abel.
  • Crime of Self-Defense: Not only do they have the gall to call Dan an insolent rebel because they attacked him and he fought them off, but when a mediation is arranged, they angrily demand compensation, in the form of Serass and Chrisse, as slaves, for Chrisse daring to resist being enslaved in the first place, and for rescuing Serass from slavery. Serass calls them both out on it.
  • The Dividual: They almost always appear together.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They do have children that they care for. They react with horror when Serass asks them if they have children after Lute points out that Chrisse's can snipe even through cover from over 1 km away.
  • Evil Gloating: They brag about putting Dan in a slave collar and shipping him off, to parts unknown, so they can't get him back, even if they wanted to.
  • Evil Is Petty: They openly declare war on Dan, twice, because they're butt-hurt that he was born with more magical potential than they were, and manages his money better, thus being much, much wealthier.
  • Evil Uncle: They are the evil uncles to Chrisse.
  • The Exile: As a direct consequence of using the vampire ancestral lands, and the citizens therein, as collateral for a business loan, without authorization, they are not only disqualified from ever leading the Vlad clan, but are completely chased out of the Vlad Earldom, and if they ever break that exile, they will not be forgiven.
  • Fat Bastard: Ravoni is obese and a despicable sot who would happily sell all his subjects into slavery for his own gain.
  • Fatal Flaw: Greed and pride.
  • It's All About Me: Upon their exile, Ravoni's last words on-screen are "I'm done for!"
  • Lean and Mean: Pyrukenen is extremely gaunt, as if he's starving to death, and he's a vicious, sadistic sot who sends his nephew-in-law to brutalize Chrisse, any way he wants, just as long as he brings her back alive to an Awful Wedded Life.
  • Saying Too Much: Pyrukenen lets slip that they are in grievous debt during the surrender negotiations. This spells their doom by offending all the denizens of Monster Continent when word gets out how they were offered up as collateral for a business loan with an outrageous interest rate.
  • Smug Snake: They strut around as if they're vastly superior, on every point, than everyone else they come across. In fact, they are vastly inferior to everyone.
  • Stupid Evil: Which Gigi notes but doesn't call them out on. They not only call Dan "a fool" for surrendering in order to spare his wife, not just because he loves her, but to avoid a heated blood feud, but Dan has powerful allies from his time as an adventurer, and when they get word of how these two happily shipped him off to the slave market, not even caring where he's going to wind up, the chances they'll retaliate are high.
  • Tempting Fate: Had anything at all gone seriously wrong with their self-proclaimed "brilliant" plan of using Serass as a hostage, her clan would have been required to escalate the situation to a blood feud. This is the primary reason they just lock her up in a tower, wearing a slave collar, and do nothing else.
  • Villains Want Mercy: Both occasions that they found themselves on the losing end of the fight with the Vlad family branch run by Dan, they shamelessly begged for mercy. The first time, Dan magnanimously let them go at the price of a simple apology. As thanks, they developed a bitter grudge, labeled him an insolent rebel, and launched an attack again, holding his wife hostage to win. When she was rescued and they were dragged to the negotiation table, with their crimes exposed, offending all of Monster Continent, they beg for mercy again, but this time, they're stripped of their noble title, their inheritance rights, and most of their holdings, left with a major looming debt that they have no means to pay, and since what they declared as their collateral was never rightfully theirs, their ultimate fate is unlikely to be kind.

     Zanaldi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zanaldi_0.jpg
Don't worry Chrisse-tan. Since my "respected" father wishes it, I'll happily keep you as a special pet, after I deal with that upstart, Lute. BWAHAHAHA!!!
Ravoni's son-in-law.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Loves to boast that his magic reinforcement is superior to Dan's, despite the two never having competed.
  • Asshole Victim: Even his father in law doesn't weep for him when he goes full-tilt hikkikimori after being shot by a sniper rifle over and over again.
  • Bad Boss: Screams at and insults his subordinates when they run into Razor Floss, because he can power through it with his Iron Skin magic. Then he finds himself on the receiving end of armor-piercing sniper fire, getting shot in his limbs over, and over, and over again, his pleas for mercy ignored.
  • Break the Haughty: He thought he could brutalize anyone he wanted because he felt himself inherently superior to them. Being on the receiving end of Chrisse's sniper rifle fire, getting helplessly shot in the limbs over and over and over until he passed out from overuse of his enhancement magic completely destroyed his superiority complex, leaving him a total wreck too scared to ever leave his room.
  • Cruel Mercy: Discussed. He promised to use healing magic to keep Chrisse alive as he tortured her to see how much pain it would take to make her scream.
  • Dirty Coward: He loves to lord it over others when he's in the superior position, but when he's on the losing end, he's quick to beg, flee, and panic, crying out for anyone to rescue him.
  • Eye Scream: His first encounter with Lute and Chrisse ends with him coming back missing an eye.
  • Fantastic Racism: He calls people who can't use magic an inferior species.
  • Good Is Old-Fashioned: He repeatedly states that Dan's skill and talent are obsolote.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He uses magic to enhance his vision, and this turns around to bite him when Lute uses a flash-bang (missing the bang) grenade on him.
  • I Want My Mommy!: He screams out for his mother several times when he finds himself on the receiving end of Chirsse's armor-piercing sniper rounds, and his magic is only prolonging his suffering.
  • Just Following Orders: He tries to deflect blame for his actions in brutalizing Lute and Chrisse by stating he was forced to follow Ranovi's orders, from financial pressure being placed on his household. Lute calls him out on it, because even if that was true, it does not excuse his Evil Gloating, nor does it excuse the brutality he delivered on Chrisse or Lute himself.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He loved to torment Chrisse with her Trauma Button, mocking her for being cooped up in her father's mansion, terrified of going outside, because of horrific off-screen bullying. After Chrisse shows him how being tormented feels, by shooting him with a sniper rifle, over, and over, and over, he locks himself in his room, curled up in a fetal position, spending all day cowering, refusing to set even one toe out the door, and he's such an Asshole Victim that nobody's going to come and help him.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His rat-tail hairdo reaches past his shoulders, and he'd be handsome, if he wasn't such a sadistic narcissist.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: Since he was given carte-blanche to do whatever he wanted as long as he brought Chrisse back alive, he promised to test how much torture she could take before she screamed.
  • Made of Iron: Literally. He has an enforcement magic called "Iron Skin" that allows him to shrug off insane amounts of punishment, even tanking a point-blank shot from a sawed-off shotgun to his waist, and surviving a point blank firing, right in his face. When he finds himself on the receiving end of Chrisse's armor-piercing sniper rounds, all this does is prolong his suffering.
  • Make an Example of Them: He is the example. Chrisse shooting him over and over again with her sniper rifle was a "warning" that she could utterly destroy anyone who dares to chase her and Lute down.
  • Moral Myopia: He believed bullying Chrisse and brutalizing her, destroying what she cared for in front of her eyes was just a harmless "game", even drooling with glee at the prospect of catching her and dreaming up new and interesting ways to torture both Lute and Chrisse, promising to never let her go, until he found himself on the receiving end, via a sniper-rifle, and Chrisse ignored his pleas. At that point, he began shouting "what did I do wrong?!"
  • Narcissist: He's only in love with himself and his own sense of superiority.
  • Nobody Could Have Survived That: Lute, taking no chances, shoots him in the face with a sawed-off shotgun, with the gun pressing right up against his head, to make sure he stays down, allowing him to escape with Chrisse. Not long after, he's surprised to see this guy alive and well, though missing an eye.
  • Smug Snake: He loves to prance around as if he's superior to everybody.
  • Villains Want Mercy: Blind and grievously wounded because he didn't have the presence of mind to cast "Iron skin" while he was screaming in pain from his retinas being burned, he makes up a bunch of excuses and pleads for mercy from a very, very pissed off Lute and Chrisse. None of this serves to sway them to spare him.

     Frackus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fractus.jpg
Don't get "triggered" so easily, Loser Princess!
The leader of the elven Naysayer faction.
  • Ambition Is Evil: All his nastiness is motivated by his desire to be the next king, which he believes is due him by birthright.
  • Break the Haughty: When Infinte Dragon shows up, he laughs and taunts the dragon, boasting that he's superior and thinking he's got the "outdated monster" on the ropes because it doesn't even try to resist the attacks of his Salamander spirit, until he realizes the monster doesn't need to evade, resist, or oppose the attack in any way, as it can regenerate even if it's reduced to a cloud of smoke! And when he puts all his magic into turning Salamander's flames as hot as they'll go, the monster just lets them wash over it, laughing as they cause no harm, whatsoever!
  • Cavalry Betrayal: He shows up at Lisse's hour of need, drives back dragon warriors, and then turns around to insult Lisse and her efforts.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After Infinite Dragon laughs off his Salamander attack, summons massive numbers of Dragon warriors, and he's an exhausted, shriveled raisin on the ground, he admits it's too late to run, and that the world is doomed. Lisse doesn't agree.
  • Engineered Heroics: He engineers the exile of Lute and party, has the barrier stone poorly defended, and when the stone is destroyed, waits until the situation is at its most dire before his faction shows up to "save the day."
  • A Hero To His Home Town: As loathsome as he is, his views supposedly represent the vast majority of the high-elf population. As far as the society goes, all other races are just fine for bringing in the tourism money and working as servants, in any and all fields, but to even consider treating them as equals, or worse, asking them for help without constantly reminding them that you're their superior, is a loathsome act certain to doom the country!
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Though he's only A Hero To His Home Town. His scheme to exile Lute not only endangered princess Luna, but nearly doomed his country when Infinte Dragon showed up and trampled his superiority complex to the ground.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Lute couldn't figure out a way to get King Eonles to let him to inspect the area of the barrier stone, so he could set-up counter-measures to the expected army of over 10,000 dragon warriors. He didn't even have the authority to ask, and the king wasn't being very cooperative with Lisse, who was the one who hired him. Along comes Frackus and proposes that if Lute is such a great "hero" then he should have no trouble dealing with the Black Scorpion menacing the local farmers, merchants and traders. Lute takes him up on this "suicidal" proposal with the condition that he be allowed to examine the barrier stone area should he succeed. Frackus and his party were outraged when Lute succeeded, handsomely, and the king was forced to keep his end of the bargain.
  • Playing with Fire: His trump card is a fire elemental, which he uses to fight "Infinite Dragon."
  • Psychological Projection: Since he's fond of Engineered Heroics, he accuses Lisse of being fond of it too.
  • Saying Too Much: He clues Lisse in that he's the mastermind in the kidnapping of Luna by saying things regarding the case that only the victims or the perpetrators and accomplices would know, because the case was highly classified by the fact that the third princess was involved, and he remained oblivious that he did it.
  • Smug Snake: He struts around, convinced that he's the smartest, bravest, and most charismatic being in the whole world. He's surrounded himself by sycophantic "yes men" to bolster this self-delusion.
  • The Stoic: He seldom lets his emotion show on his face.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: On the one hand, he and his faction were fond of shouting that the barrier stone is indestructible, and took it as an insult to the 5 heroes whenever someone brought forth the warning that this was indeed going to happen. On the other hand, he thought he could one-shot "Infinite Dragon", which is a monster so problematic that the 5 heroes he worships as infallible, couldn't beat, but could only seal away.
  • This Cannot Be!: He and his faction were shocked and outraged when Lute came back, alive, from fighting the subjugation mission they put Lute on, with not just one giant scorpion carcass, but two!
    • It happens again in rapid-fire when Infinite Dragon kept regenerating back from his Salamander's attack, even when reduced to ash and smoke until it ultimately became outright immune to any and all fire he could dish out.

     Infinite Dragon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ininite_dragon.jpg
All hail the Demon King!
  • Achilles' Heel: Which Lute puzzles out. In order for it to regenerate, it has to reabsorb its damaged body. If the damaged body is sucked up into an alternate dimension, it can't do that.
  • Adaptive Ability: Gains resistance, if not immunity, to whatever is used to fight it. It gains huge amounts of fire resistance because Frackus hits it with his flame elemental over, and over again.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: Averted. Locked up in the barrier stone for generations of high elves, which can live up to 10,000 years, one would think the language had changed significantly. This does not appear to be the case, as unlikely as that is.
  • The Dreaded: Its legend is well known by children, even after being sealed away for maybe millions of years, and it drives to despair those who would dare fight it.
  • Evil Laugh: "Galalalala!"
  • Expy: A mix of "Five God Dragon" from Yugi-Oh and King Ghidora from Godzilla.
  • From a Single Cell: Frackus thinks he destroyed it by reducing its entire body to ash and smoke. It regenerated back to full health from the smoke!
  • Mook Maker: It can summon dragon warriors, by the thousands!
  • Multiple Head Case: Has five heads.
  • Puzzle Boss: It can't be beaten in straight-up combat as it can regenerate from any injury, even the complete destruction of its body, and gains resistance, if not immunity, to whatever is used to fight it.
  • Reality Ensues: It might have an Adaptive Ability to gain immunity to attack magic used against it, but it does not have the ability to become immune to the laws of physics.
    • Although immune to fire thanks to Frackus, it proves incapable of resisting being slammed to the ground by the explosive force of multiple high-powered rocket propelled grenades.
    • It gains no immunity to the kinetic force of non-magical projectiles going into and through its body.
    • Although it gained immunity to damage from ice-based magic in the past, it can still be blocked by a wall of ice, and pinned down immobile under a block of ice, allowing Snow to shoot one of its heads off with Ak-47 armor piercing ammo.
  • This Can Not Be: All it can do is shout "Impossible" in quartet when it realizes Lisse has a way to keep it from regenerating.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: When it fully realizes that Lute and company have the means to give it lasting damage, it spouts out the trope, by name, and goes full-tilt Kill 'Em All.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Demon King.
  • Wrong Assumption: When Meiya shows up and blasts his dragon warrior army to nothing with an MK-19 automatic grenade launcher, it goes by the scorch marks and thinks she's using a powerful fire-magic only magical tool. Already near-immune to fire, thanks to Frackus, it charges the airship Meiya's riding, thinking it won't be harmed. Meiya proceeds to blast it out of the sky, painfully, tearing off one of its five heads, which Lisse then shoves into her "Bottomless Storage", which keeps the monster from regenerating.

Orphanage:

     Eru-sensei 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eru.jpg
Lute-kun, honestly, what am I going to do with you?!
The first person Lute sees upon waking up as a baby, and who runs the orphanage where he's raised.
  • Anger Born of Worry: Frequently directed at Lute because the precocious little boy just can't resist getting into trouble, trying to master magic and weapons way too dangerous for his small frame.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be a gentle and kind person, but she's not endlessly forgiving, as Lute learned the hard way.
  • Call to Adventure: She recommends Lute to go join the nearest adventurer's guild, even preparing a letter of recommendation for him, but neglected to warn him about the fact that people get kidnapped and sold into slavery all the time.
  • Healing Hands: Is repeatedly shown using healing magic.
  • Little Bit Beastly: The first trait Lute notices when he sees her is her rabbit ears.
  • The Lost Lenore: She once had a fiance, but he died suddenly, and without warning, while he was away at work.
  • Mentor Archetype: She doesn't just run the orphanage, she also is in charge of teaching the fundamentals of magic.
  • Parental Substitute: She is the closest thing the orphans in her care have for a parent, and she treats them like she's their mother.
  • So Proud of You: Though she always found Lute a handful, she admits that his constant curiosity, testing his limits, resourcefulness, and upstanding moral code make her very, very proud of him.
  • You Are Not Alone: Even after graduating from the orphanage and becoming full-fledged adults, Snow and Lute are informed that she's an ally and if they need help, she will be there for them.

     Marton 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marton.jpg
Lute, I'd like you to sell me the rights to your Reversi game.
The merchant who finances Lute, by buying the rights to the game of Reversi.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: He's an honest and above board merchant, for pragmatic reasons, at least. When asked why he doesn't just steal Lute's Reversi game, he retorts that if word got out that he exploited and scammed a child, his clients and backers would lose faith in him, and other nasty consequences.
  • Intrepid Merchant: Trades between countries in a world were monster attacks are hardly rare.
  • One Degree of Separation: He's an old acquaintance of Eru-sensei. Their full relationship is not divulged in full.

Slave Market:

     Rano Merumeru 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rano.jpg
Hello, Lute, how are you?
The slave merchant that bought Lute from the three fake adventurers and then sold him to Dan Gate Vlad on the monster continent.
  • Affably Evil: The slaver industry is morally dubious, at best, but Rano is friendly, jovial, polite, and completely professional.
  • Friend in the Black Market: When Lute and his new mistress find themselves in trouble, thanks to her Evil Uncle, they come to him for aid, and he's more than happy to oblige, for a price, of course.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: He may be a slave merchant, but his business is strictly above board, and he can be trusted.
  • Only in It for the Money: He works for profit, no other motive.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Make no mistake, he is a slaver, and he doesn't look too closely at the merits of the people he buys slaves from, but he treats his merchandise with care. It would hurt his profits if they were clearly abused, after all.

Vlad Earldom:

     Dan Gate Vlad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dan_0.jpg
Welcome aboard, Lute!
The one who buys an enslaved Lute.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's loud, hammy, and can mow down armies with thousands of soldiers.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: He's very tan, and he's blonde, like the rest of his immediate family.
  • Engagement Challenge: He puts Lute through a few of these, so that he can prove himself worthy of keeping Chrisse safe. Though Lute wasn't trying to win Chrisse's hand in marriage at the time.
    1.) Manage to get Chrisse comfortable enough to see him as a butler in three days, or back to the slave market Lute goes.
    2.) Manage to last battle with Dan 10 seconds.
    3.) Manage to last battle with Dan 20 seconds.
    4.) Manage to either defeat Dan or force him to submit!
  • Hostage Situation: He's forced to surrender when his wife is stabbed with a silver weapon, and his evil older brothers promised the cure if he lets himself be captured and enslaved.
  • Made a Slave: Enslaved by his evil older brothers and sold into the slave market. Current whereabouts unknown.
  • Moving the Goalposts: As listed in the Engagement Challenge above, whenever Lute managed to clear his challenge, Dan turned around and made the benchmark to stay as a "butler" higher.
  • One-Man Army: Him vs an army of thousands? Curbstomp Battle in his favor.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Like the rest of his family, one wouldn't know he was a vampire if he made an effort to hide his fangs.
  • Overprotective Dad: Justified. His one and only child, Chrisse, has been horribly traumatized, and is targeted by nefarious individuals. If Lute's going to be worthy of her, he's got to earn it.
  • Quality over Quantity: He has an army of 50 elites. His enemies have an army of 5000. Result. Enemy army routed with heavy casualties.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: In universe. He presumes Lute is a girl because he thinks "Lute" is a girl's name, and he found a long-haired Lute very cute.

     Serass Gate Vlad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/serass.jpg
Oh Lute, you're just so cute!
The lady of the Vlad house.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's a good, kind woman, but she is not endlessly forgiving.
  • Forgiveness: A firm believer in it. She's well aware of the circumstances surrounding Gigi's betrayal, and forgives him once the fight is over and he's been properly defeated, tasking him with finding her missing husband.
  • Hostage Situation: She's taken captive to force her husband to surrender, and let himself be taken into slavery.
  • I Want Grandkids: One of the conditions for Chrisse to marry Lute is to produce a child to be the clan heir.
  • Marshmallow Hell: The first thing she does upon seeing Lute in a maid outfit is shove his face right into her chest. She's less than pleased when she learns Lute is actually a boy. When Lute comes to rescue her from the villainy of Dan's elder brothers, she does it again!
  • Open-Minded Parent: Despite knowing Lute was already engaged to Snow, she pushes Chrisse to confess her feelings for him too, more than happy to have Chrisse in a polygamous relationship.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Like the rest of the Vlad family, one wouldn't know she was a vampire if she didn't say so, and didn't have a deadly reaction to silver in her blood.
  • The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: Behind closed doors, she's a total sweetheart. In public, she maintains a cool, rigid exterior reminding the world that her word is law.
  • You Remind Me of X: When Lute puts her in a Princess Carry while rescuing her, she begins to reminisce how her husband Dan used to do the same to her.

     Mary 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mary_7.jpg
Ewe are going to have to work real hard to prove a boy can be Chrisse's guardian, Lewete!
The Vlad family butler.
  • Battle Butler: He doesn't just serve as the family butler, he can lead an army, if need be.
  • Beast Man: He's a sheep person.
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: He was the one most insistent that Lute be returned to the slave market, upon finding out Lute's actually a boy. He winds up eating his words when Lute saves Chrisse from her evil uncles and their machinations.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Mary" is usually a woman's name, in many cultures, going back thousands of years.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: It's a douchey thing to suggest sending Lute back to the slave market, knowing his fate would be infinitely worse than working for a vampire as a butler and a "bloodbag", but he is right to be concerned to have a teenage boy and a teenage girl living under the same roof night and day when little to nothing is known about the boy, and he was bought from the slave market, where most are not nice people.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sending Lute back to the slave market is a douchey thing to request, but his priority is the well-being of the Vlad family, and he does ultimately prove himself to be a good and loyal steward.
  • Shout-Out: To the kid's song "Mary had a little lamb," which Lute goes on to lampshade.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Vlad household.
  • Verbal Tic: He seems to be compelled to speak in sheep-related puns.

Lute should stay precisely because he's a boy.
The Vlad family bodyguard.
  • Bad Dreams: The deaths of his friends and family have horribly traumatized him, and when he started feeling good about becoming the Vlad family bodyguard, he started having nightmares of them coming back from the grave, demanding vengeance.
  • Becoming the Mask: When he was bought by the Vlad family, he quickly realized he couldn't beat Dan in a straight-up fight, so he pretended to be a good and faithful servant, earning the family's trust. They treated him so kindly, he wound up loving them for real.
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: He turns on the Vlad family when they're under attack by Dan's evil older brothers, taking Serass hostage.
  • Conflicting Loyalties: He is indeed very devoted to the Vlad family, and loves little Chrisse, but he's sworn a blood oath to his dead family to avenge their deaths upon the killer, Dan Gate Vlad.
  • Dramatic Irony: He turned on the Vlad family for fear of having nowhere to go if they found out the truth of his past and threw him out. After the fight is over, they reveal that they knew who he was all along, including little Chrisse, and they still cared for him anyway. He has a breakdown when he's told You Are Not Alone.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He is the loved one. His friends and family, by his own admission, were scum that deserved to be hunted down like animals, but they loved him and treated him kindly.
  • Forced into Evil: Heavily conflicted, he still would not have turned on his masters, the Vlads, until he was blackmailed by Dan's older brothers, threatening him with nowhere to go if he didn't help them in their villainy.
  • Harmful to Minors: His entire clan was subjugated by Dan, while he was a small child, and he was sold into slavery, only he knows how long he was a slave.
  • Honor Before Reason: He demands that Serass punish him, harshly, for his betrayal. She refuses to do so, stating that his nightmares, heartbreak, and the beatdown Lute gave him are punishment enough.
  • Ignored Expert: He warns Zanaldi, Ravoni, and Pyruken that the diversionary attack from Mary and crew might well be a diversion, leaving the castle where Serass is being held hostage vulnerable to a secondary attack force. He is shouted down and emphatically ordered to butcher Mary and crew. He is later proven right when Lute marches his Battle Harem into the castle, rescues Serass, and then sweet little Chrisse, all by herself, pins down the entire army he's in, including Zanaldi, with her freshly minted sniper rifle, smiling and singing all the while.
  • Made a Slave: When his friends and family were killed, he was sold into slavery by Dan's adventuring party.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: He's honest, honorable, and likes nothing more than a good fight.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He admits that his friends and family were scum that deserved getting brutally killed, but they were still his friends and family, so he felt compelled to avenge their deaths and his enslavement.
  • You Never Asked: He knew Lute was a boy the moment he walked in the door. He didn't tell anybody because it wasn't in the job description and nobody bothered to ask.

Good luck, Lute-kun. You're going to need it.
The Vlad family's top maid.
  • Cat Girl: Has cat's ears.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: She's a cat girl and she's very snarky.
  • Ninja Maid: She isn't just a competent maid. She can also lead an army, if the need arises.
  • Romantic Spoonfeeding: Sort of. She shows Lute how to do it by feeding his pudding to Chrisse and making the little girl go "Aahhh!"
  • Sweet Tooth: She recommends Lute win over Chrisse by feeding her sweets, and offers her help by taste-testing Lute's pudding. She not only enjoys the newly minted desert, but tells the boy to have more faith in himself.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Vlad household.

     Chrisse's friendship circle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/10_67.jpg
  • Beastman: They all have some animalistic traits.
  • Bystander Syndrome: When Chrisse's home came under attack from her evil uncles, these three and their families were prevented by Monster Continent politics from directly being involved.
  • Childhood Friends: With Chrisse.
  • Knight Templar: Karen, the centaur, is extremely rigid in her moral code.
  • Sweet Tooth: They all love sweets and the snacks provided by Lute for their weekly tea-party with Chrisse took them by storm.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: When they learn the motivating factor behind the actions of Chrisse's uncles in attacking the Vlad family, especially the part where they used the habitable land of the Monster Continent and all the citizens that live there as collateral for a loan to boost their own failing business, they explode in a rage, formally strip them of their noble titles, and any claim to the inheritance. At this point, Serass tells them, in no uncertain terms, that if they engage in any further villainy, they will no longer be forgiven.

The Eonel Kingdom:

     Lala Eonel Memea 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lala_7.jpg
In three months, the barrier stone will be broken.
Missing at the time Lisse seeks out Lute, it is her prophecy that is motivating "Lisse" to seek him out.
  • Cassandra Truth: She wrote a log, predicting the fall of her country overnight when the barrier stone would be broken and thousands of dragon warriors swarming out. Few believe her, until it's too late.
  • The Ghost: Aside from the fact that she has two gods' gifts, clairvoyance and prophecy, almost nothing is known about her.
  • Precognition: Not known to many, she can see the future.
  • Sensor Character: Her Clairvoyance allows her to see everything for several kilometers around her. This makes the chances that she was kidnapped or assassinated very, very low.

     King Eonel

Do not forget your station, Lisse. You are the second princess!
  • The Good King: Amazingly enough. He may be a racist prick, but the kingdom's well being is his top priority and his people have prospered under his rule.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: It's a major act of douchery to tell Xiah to prioritize guarding Lisse, even abandoning Lute to die, right in his face, but Lute is a random no-name adventurer he knows nothing about, while Lisse is the crown princess, with Lala missing, whereabouts unknown, and the kingdom could be greatly destabilized if anything happens to her.
  • Parental Favoritism: He's cold to Lisse, at best, praises Lisse's older sister without reserve, and dotes on Lisse's younger sister to the point that the not-yet-adult girl is spoiled to the core.
  • Real Politik: Even if he wanted to take Lute and princess Lisse at face value, he has to keep the people who support his throne happy, even if they have their heads up their ass so far that they can't even breathe properly.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Racist or not, he does give Lute and Lisse a fair hearing, and agrees to let Lute and party examine the barrier stone, if Lute can prove himself by dealing with a dangerous creature that's been harassing his people for some time and is something that their best warriors can't do anything about.
