This is the Characters page for the Journal Roleplay Imperial Saga.

In DEEP progress.

As this is an Alternate Universe role play, characters from existing canons may have entries here - however, only tropes that are either unique to Imperial Saga, or are significantly distinct from original canon in Imperial Saga, should be stored here.

Characters are sorted by faction.

Caster (AKA: Lina Inverse)

A famous hero from some ages past, now summoned into Dagaria's latest Holy Grail War, summoned by Roy Mustang. Caster's actually reasonably good at keeping control of her name, unlike some of the war's competitors. She is motivated by, in loose order, food, greed, and fighting evil to fulfill the second and then first interest.

Jin Kisaragi (Dropped)

The heir to the noble Kisaragi family and a major in the Amestrian military. His backstory lines up much like his canon self's.

Roy Mustang

As in his canon, Roy is a colonel in the Amestrian army. However, in this variant, he's the son of a deceased noble, and as such has learned to conduct himself according to that role. He's also a Master in the Holy Grail War, having summoned Caster.

Cornelia li Britannia

Though she isn't a true princess in Dagaria, Cornelia is still the daughter of an Amestrian noble. She enlisted in the military to follow her fiancé, Roy Mustang, only for the two to be kept apart for nearly a decade. She also participated in Ishval, and the experiences there only served to harden her.

  • Arranged Marriage: To Roy.
  • Battle Couple: To Roy
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: Sort of. The intent is there, but she's doing so by giving him her honest thoughts rather than lying.
  • Broken Bird: What she regards herself as.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Has put up a wall of ice around her heart due to Ishval and her experiences fighting Rift monsters. Roy is trying to make this happen, but only time will tell if he succeeds.
  • Four-Star Badass
  • Knight Templar Big Sister: Is very, very overprotective of her sister. She doesn't approve of her engagement to Athrun at all, and would have been authorized to invade Zeon if Terenas hadn't been assassinated and Avshar hadn't taken over Zeon and Imperial City.
  • New Old Flame: To Roy. Unlike Roy, however, she's attempting to resist it — not because she doesn't care about him, but because she feels they're both too broken for it to work.
  • Tsundere: She may not show it, but she still cares for Roy a lot. She nearly attacked Caster when Roy experienced the pain from obtaining his Command Spell, and has recently been using Caster to be her eyes and ears to watch over Roy. But to the man himself, she constantly gives trouble.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid


King Arturia Pendragon

The current King of Britain. She is an idealistic but still mature ruler who has led her people through the many wars and disasters that occurred in Dagaria. She originally shared her throne with her twin brother Arthur, but it turned out that for the past year, Arturia had never even been in Camelot. Everything from her engagement to Irisviel to her joint kingship with Arthur was all just Morgan Le Fay's illusion. She has only recently returned.

    The Nameless States 



A stern, but not unkind Magistrate. Supposedly the son of a country patrician and his elven mistress, he appeared only recently and rose up quickly through the murky politics of Rome to the position of Magistrate. Known as the Black Hound, he is a merciless dispenser of Justice, applying the law to both Patricians and Plebes.


Archer (AKA: Signum)

Hayate Yagami's loyal magical knight summoned from the past, masquerading as a normal young woman. Yes, yes, "how is this an Alternate Universe"? This time, she's Servant Archer in the Holy Grail War.

Takamachi Nanoha
Will you be her friend?

An average little girl who's been teaching herself magic with a little help, Nanoha comes upon records of the Holy Grail War and it horrified at what some people would do to win. When she learns that another one is starting up, she does the only thing she can do to minimize civilian involvement: become a Master herself.



Prince Char Aznable

The rightful ruler of the Principality of Zeon, who took over the kingdom over the course of two television series' worth of adapted background. Seemingly the more charming and fun-loving of the Riftguard leaders, but...

Athrun Zala

The son of Patrick Zala, Defense Minister of Zeon. Athrun underwent a Magitek infusion process in his infancy, which has enhanced his reflexes and given him stronger control over light magic. Loyal to his country...for now.

Princess Sara Werec
Absolutely nothing wrong here.

Char's younger sister, who has spent her life idolizing him. She wants to make the world a better place and believes he will achieve that, having absolutely no idea what he — or anyone else — really wants to become of Dagaria.

  • Arranged Marriage: To Mitsunari Ishida.
    • Accidental Marriage: Mitsunari didn't actually mean that he wanted to marry her... blame Light.
  • Big Brother Worship: Just like in canon. Called out on this by poor Mitsunari.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Invoked in-universe. She knows what you said about her, Major.
  • Canon Welding: Sara has an aloof ace older brother beloved by his country, as usual. Unusually, his name is Char Aznable, not Ralph Werec.
  • Dual Wielding
  • Princess Incognito: Likes to just introduce herself as "Sara" on the network, omitting the whole Princess-of-Zeon bit, although she doesn't really make any effort to hide it.
  • Running Gag: Seems to have become the subject of one for villains. Both The Major and Avshar have essentially called her a slut. (No, she doesn't actually sleep around.)
  • Stealth Pun: Her AU is made of these. For example, she uses flyssa swords in combat (the mech she was using at her equivalent point was a Flyssa), and filling in for Sayla makes her A Little Princess.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Athrun/Euphie.

Souji Okita

Member of The Shinsengumi, a police squad stationed in Tsuwano Province.

Euphemia li Britannia (Married name: Euphemia Zala)

The daughter of an Amestrian noble, and Cornelia's younger sister. She has been married to Athrun Zala in the hope that they can quell some of the tension between Amestris and Zeon...if only temporarily.

    The Church 

Megaera D'Ashland

A young Succubus, not yet taught in the ways of hell, was summoned by a crazed Warlock who screwed up summoning her. Fatally. The result would have killed her, if it were not for a kindly agent of the Church (The soon-dropped Charlotte Aluin) who agreed to bind her as a familiar. She's now an agent of the Church Knights, and has trained in a specific form that involves rapid enchantments on her sword and whip to fight.

  • Berserk Button - In the Imperial Saga universe, devils of all stripes automatically, and vehemently, hate the Rift. Any chance Megaera has to fight it, its influence, or its minions, where she believes she has a good chance of coming out on top, she will take, overriding most other concerns.
  • Good Shepherd - Megaera is one of (seemingly) all too few within the Church who genuinely, sincerely believes in God and is not corrupt or in it for power. Her own faith is strong enough that she cannot let a holy symbol touch her skin, for it will burn her, in a setting where this only occurs because of faith. She is bitterly aware of the irony. She believes in doing right to the best of her ability every time, without fail.
  • Nun Too Holy - Yes, Megaera legitimately believes in God and doing right. However, she also sees little wrong with enjoyment of her nature as a succubus as long as she does not cause harm - the balance of this has tripped her up before in background, and likely will again at some point.
  • Original Generation
  • Royal Rapier - Megaera's signature weapon. Elegant, classy, and perfect for channeling spells through, allowing her to face down small squadrons easily.
  • Turbulent Priest - She's opposed to the Church's practices on certain issues - most particularly, its poor history with treating women fairly. This can and has (in the background) run her up against the very conservative Delacroix. So far, this hasn't been much of an issue.


    Imperial Guard 

    Luna's Call 


The Major

An Amestrian major that died in battle against the vampire Alucard fifty years ago. Reborn in the body of an automaton, he involves himself in much of more atrocious acts on behalf of the Fuhrer Bradley in the hopes of starting an eternal war throughout the world. He and his vampire soldiers numbering a little over one-thousand make up the Millennium faction.

  • Abusive Parents - Going with the backstory of his prototype character in Coyote here. Although, he already turned out bad without their help.
  • Arranged Marriage - One with Integra Hellsing. It will be hideous.
  • Ax-Crazy - More blood, more carnage, more violence, the better.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking - Averted.
  • Blood Knight - Gentlemen. He likes war.
  • The Dragon - To Bradley. As long as he's given the power and opportunity to wage his wars, he'll gladly take on the rules and orders of the Fuhrer. Even though he hates him.
  • Evil Plan- One is in the process at the moment. Sending out Millennium operatives throughout Dagaria to crack down on fugitives was actually a way to lure out Alucard and the Church. He gains notoriety (and backers), Alucard gains even more notoriety for killing soldiers who really have caught more wanted thugs (as well as the more than occasional civilian), and the Church takes over with its own series of inquisitions headed by Judge Frollo. This also fits into another plan that isn't supposed to happen until a month later.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: He's still a piss-poor shot.
  • Large Ham
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Manipulative Bastard - Despite being in charge of an overwhelmingly hated group, the Major keeps a lot of financial and political power. Why, he and Pope Delacroix are great friends.
  • The Sociopath
  • Villainous Glutton - Please don't interrupt during his mealtime.
  • Worthy Opponent - The Hellsings still hold that position.

    The Netherworld 

Queen of the Netherworld Izanami

A revered spirit of the old, pre-Crystal King religion credited by followers of the old ways for creating either Dagaria or the whole world, She's not saying. After a lot of hilarity ensuing, she wound up as Queen of the Netherworld, the title she's currently known by today.

    Team Evil 

    Unaligned, Minor Factions, Etc. 

Chizuko Mikamo

A Sawan noble and according to the official line, the kidnapping victim of the infamous thief Nijuu Mensou. In actuality, Nijuu Mensou was a former scientist for the Amestris military and she went with him willingly to escape her awful stepmother.

Utena Tenjou

Formerly the champion of a bizzare and elaborate dueling game on an island near Suo-Oshima. She was created in his own image by an exiled fae creature as part of a ploy to unlock his former power.
