Go To

Robert Blake

Admiral Blake, Viscount Blake

A former Royal Admiral. Has joined Reconquista around the same time as his old friend Dunwell and, it's implied, for the same reasons.
  • Interservice Rivalry: It seems he doesn't care how many casualties the ground forces will take storming Newcastle, as long as his fleet stays mostly intact.
  • Ignored Expert: Has doubts over the feasibility of attacking the Faerie cities so soon after the heavy losses suffered at Dunkirk. Cromwell and his main advisers dismiss his concerns out of hand.

Duncan Barnard

Brother to Dorian Barnard, and a General in Reconquista's forces. He was granted the title of Earl for his part in conspiring with his brother to murder their father for Cromwell's cause. He is now a member in Cromwell's closest circle of advisers, and has been entrusted to lead the main campaign against the Fae.

  • Armchair Military: Despite never having seen a Faerie in combat, or even seen one at all, he confidently tells Dunwell of all people that the Fae are not actually as dangerous as all their accomplishments would suggest.
  • Ensign Newbie: Or General Newbie in this case. His elevated status is based more on rewarded loyalty than through merit and experience.
  • Obstructive Zealot: Like Cromwell and the other top heads of Reconquista, the goal of uniting the mainland and taking back the Holy Land, combined with recently winning the civil war, causes him to dismiss the threat the Fae pose as well as such minor details like the logistics required to conquer and hold on to Tristain for any real length of time.
  • Villain Ball: Has no trouble concluding an enemy is dead, despite the lack of corpses and protests of his subordinates.

Oliver Cromwell

Lord Protector of the Republic of Albion

The leader of Reconquista and a self-proclaimed prophet of the Founder, which he seems to really believe in. Cromwell was a clergyman before the civil war broke out. His stated goal is the unification of all of Halkegenia (forcefully if need be) in a glorious crusade to retake the Holy Land from the elves.
  • Big Bad: The leader of Reconquista and thus responsible for all the trouble that was not caused by the Transition itself. This only lasts for the first couple arcs anyway.

Sir Terrance Dunwell

The Eastern Gale, Knight Commander Sir Dunwell, Count of Windsor

The down-to-Earth commander of the Reconquista' elite Dragon Knights. A peerless close combat mage of exceptional skill and daring, Sir Dunwell spent most of his early life distinguishing himself as a dragon knight. Raised to the station of Knighthood from humble beginnings as the son of a petty mage. In battle he shows adaptability and cunning, fighting closely with his familiar, the Wind Dragon Scirroco who he regards fondly as his oldest friend. His taciturn demeanor and ruthlessness in battle conceal a kind heart and a willingness to put himself in danger to protect his ideals. Dunwell's honor and resolve were badly tested during the rebellion reaching its peak in an incident that resulted in his defection to the Rebels after participating in the assassination of Prince Harold, eldest of the three sons of the King of Albion, at the battle of Londinium. Simply wants for Albion to come out of the war as quickly as possible to minimize casualties and destruction. He is secretly investigating Reconquista's backers.
  • Angst: Hasn't stopped since the beginning of his career at the death of his first squad leader.
  • Anti-Villain: He just wants the war to end, so that Albion could start rebuilding. In fact, the only reason he's working with the rebels is because the prince he worked under had gone If I Can't Have You... towards the entire country.
  • Demoted to Extra: Is only peripherally involved in v3.0.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joined the Rebels after finding out the king planned a scorched earth campaign.
  • Fan Nickname: The Most Interesting Man in Albion.
  • Hero Killer: He kills Arguile with an improvised shotgun blast. When the realization of Arguile's identity (Hiraga Saito) is factored, it really becomes jarring that he killed the Canon hero.
  • The Stoic: According to his familiar, all of his expressions are subtle variations of dour.
  • Token Good Teammate: Is one of the few decent officers of Reconquista that we see.

Sir William Wells

The Inferno

A subordinate of Sir Dunwell, Sir Wells is one of his most trusted Lieutenants and second in command of his detachment of Dragon Knights. As with Sir Dunwell, Wells is of petty upbringing and strives to be "More righteous than the righteous, and more noble than the Nobility." He is a skilled dragon knight, prefering fire dragons, and a fire mage of triangle rank. In battle he often supports his commander laying fire lines to funnel or divide forces on the ground.
  • Flaming Sword: He wields fire magic into a sword form. It is used to defeat Mahou Shiori.
  • Ignored Expert: Despite his having more experience with the Fae than most members of Reconquista, the Kingston garrison commander doesn't immediately bring him into the loop upon new information, and blows off his advice.
  • You Are in Command Now: Commands the remains of the dragon knight squadron in the battle of Newcastle after Dunwell is injured.

Terrance De Martou

A Petty mage from a a fallen family. De Martou works for the crown of Tristain as a tax collector. He is also extremely corrupt, using his authority to embezzle funds from the crown and into the coffers of Reconquista. He also runs a smuggling business on the side and has recently come into the possession of six Pixies from Sayuri's garden. He is a regular at the Charming Faerie Inn He also plays a small but important role in a Reconquista plan to assassinate Prince Wales and kidnap Princess Henrietta.
  • Covert Pervert: For a certain value of covert, the man is very openly a lecher from his treatment of the girls at the Charming Faerie Inn. His journal, however, reveals an obsessive Fae fetish that Argo has a hard time imagining would even be possible without the internet to feed it.
  • Dirty Coward: So much so that he rats out all of contacts in Reconquista after he is caught.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His decision to buy six pixies from Sayuri's Garden is what led Louise to him and allowed the Faerie Lords and Tristain to learn of Reconquista's plans in the second arc.

Janglers

The Reaper's Tongue

The head of the Royal Tax Office, De Martou's boss, and a Reconquista sympathizer. He is currently working on a plan to seriously undermine Tristain and its Fae allies using De Martou's smuggling business as a staging point. He is also the one who hired Rip Jack as a part of his plan.

Digby

Commander of an Albionian Special Forces Unit that has infiltrated Tristain in order to provide support for Richmond's plan in part 2. They were using the De Martou estate as a base of operations. He was last seen retreating towards Gallia with his men and Ephialtes after the plan was foiled.

Isabella

Another member of Digby's unit. As well as a personal retainer of King Joseph of Gallia. In the third arc, she reappears as an assistant to Lady Sheffield.
  • Femme Fatale: Ephialtes gets this impression of her.
  • Mad Doctor: She's a water mage who created a pseudo-clone of Mortimer by using his stolen blood.
    • Ephialtes suspects she's interested in experimenting on any Fae to improve her disguise capabilities.
  • The Medic: Is taking care of Chadrick after he received feedback from Midori beheading the skirny he was controlling.

Chadrick

Another member of Digby's unit. And a personal retainer of King Joseph of Gallia.
  • Affably Evil: Seems to be more laid-back and easier to get along with than Digby. Kirche admits he was more of a gentleman than she initially thought.
  • Professional Killer: Wales was not the first member of Royalty he's taken a shot at. He and Isabella were responsible for the assantation of Prince Lionel.
  • Wicked Cultured: Discussed playwrights with Kirche. Makes sense, as he's both an actor as well as an assassin.

Blair Travyor

A Dragoon recently recruited by Wells for the Fourth Squadron. He is the son of Dunwell's old squadron Captain.
  • The Beastmaster: Gets along with the squadron's dragons amazingly well. Much better than with people, in fact.
  • Dual Wielding: Like Kirito, Blair wields two swords in battle - specifically, a pair of cutlass style sword-wands. Unlike Kirito, Blair is nowhere near experienced or trained enough to use it very well.
    • Also goes for his spellcasting. While 'true' dual-casting is only possible for high-class mages, Blair is able to wield a watered down version by casting the same spell through two foci rather than casting two different spells simultaneously.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He's trying to control it. Meinhardt does not help.
  • No One Should Survive That: Invoked nearly word for word at the idea of Sword Shiori surviving two stab wounds.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Heavily hinted at, not in the least by the fact that 'his' natural voice is substantially higher-pitched than how 'he' usually speaks.

Sir Meinhardt

A half-Germanian Mage Knight and a veteran of the battle at Newcastle. His natural talent is only equaled by his arrogance. He is recruited by Wells for the Fourth Squadron after Operation Dunkirk.
  • Break the Haughty: A task Wells has taken a personal interest in, much to Meinhardt's misfortune, though it's shown not to help as during a fight with Shiori he's still incredibly cocky.
  • Insufferable Genius: He's quite talented when it comes to all things involved in being a Dragon Knight. And he knows it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He enjoys pushing people's buttons, but he's also best friends with Holland; having helped him out enough not to get kicked out of the Dragon Knights, and visited him during his recovery from Newcastle.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Has his arm broken by Shiori, but ignores the pain enough to give raunchy remarks.

Sir Richard Holland

A Mage Knight, veteran of the battle at Newcastle, and friend of Meinhardt. He does not display the same natural talent as his old friend, and suffers from a lack of confidence. He is recruited by Wells for the Fourth Squadron after Operation Dunkirk.
  • Angst: Over the first Faerie he ever saw, and who nearly killed him.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Had a romantic view of Dragon Knights, and requested to join the aerial cavalry. He got his wish... right before the Newcastle battle.
  • Gullible Lemmings: Subverted. His own experience at Newcastle, and the numerous conflicting stories about Fairies, causes him to dismiss the official military line about Fae being demon spawn.
  • Taught by Experience: Being nearly killed at Newcastle has given him a good idea of how dangerous the Fae are, and is thus unfazed by all the destruction and injury Shiori wrought in Saxe-Gotha.
  • The Watcher: His role so far in the story is to listen and observe how other people react to events to give the reader a look at the mood of Albion society, then question and brood about everything in constant uncertainty.

Sir Samuel Willheim

Willheim of Orange, Steward of Saxe Gotha

Keeps a portrait of Matilda de Sachsen-Gotha and her parents in his study.
  • Secret Keeper: It is hinted he knows about Tiffa and is keeping the locals (and now the army as well) from finding out.
