Main Characters: Yu and Harem.

     Yu/Apostle Ullman
Trust in me, I really am Ullmm, the First Apostle
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Subtle but profound. In the manhua, when he sips some fruit wine at a banquet, not realizing it's alcohol, the moment he's informed it's booze, he puts it down, but is already plastered, leading to the annihilation of Tiger's gang. In the novel version, he keeps on chugging the booze until it's all empty, slashing mooks with a sword in one hand and swigging wine with the other, not caring a whit.
  • Almighty Janitor: He's a Physical God, or as close as the setting gets to one, yet he's a "mere" freshman at the Imperial Mage academy, and a Black-Iron ranked adventurer.
  • Always Save the Girl: While he does protect the innocent, regardless of gender, he will prioritize the well-being of cute ladies in immediate area.
  • Berserk Button: Insult him all you want and he'll just insult you right back, never initiating the physical violence, but certainly ending it. Threaten his love interests, physically, emotionally, or mentally, and you should consider yourself lucky if you're just merely digging your own grave.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: If you care for your town, Do. Not. Give. Him. Booze. Ever. He's on record razing a city to ash in a drunken stupor. When he accidentally drinks some booze while rescuing Linda and her father from Tiger, a mob boss, he goes into a fugue and utterly obliterates the guy and his underworld army, not remembering what he did the next morning.
  • Cassandra Truth: He reveals himself as The First Apostle to both Elsa and Abbigail. Abbigail believes him because he yanked her soul out of hell, literally, but Elsa doesn't, just thinking he's making jokes to cheer her up.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He loves his fanservice, and is often shameless about it, but the welfare of his ladies is first and foremost in his mind, especially Elsa's.
  • Crime of Self-Defense: In chapter 63, Gretel Capella tries to force himself between Yu and Elsa, as the two were about to get all kissy-face, and refuses to leave the two alone, insisting that "the weak commoner stop interfering with 'his date'." When Yu rightly points out how Gretel's claims of being an Imperial Academy student could be fake, Gretel responds with attempting to launch a lethal-force magic attack in public, which Yu has to stop with physical force. Charlotte Keer chooses this moment to arrive at the scene and immediately take the word of Gretel's co-conspirators that Yu is the one at fault. Despite the fact that Gretel and crew were the ones who snuck out after curfew while Yu and company were the ones travelling on a return trip to the academy from authorized leave.
    • Again in chapter 69. An assassin breaks into Yu's room, and while Yu is fighting the assassin, with her clothes shredding off, Keer's first instinct is to physically attack Yu, ignoring his explanations, and allowing the assassin to escape.
  • Curbstomp Battle: How most of his fights end.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: His "common sense" is often centuries if not millennia out of date.
  • God's Hands Are Tied: He could punch his way through the dimensional barrier between the demon world and the human world, but if he makes even the tiniest mistake in the application of power, he could destroy the entire demon world dimension, so he's taking the "long, slow" way out of respect for the innocent inhabitiants who have to live there.
  • Idiot Hair: One lock of his hair, right at the top center of his head, stands up for no explained reason.
  • Insult Backfire: Charlotte Keer gives him a back-handed insult by saying it takes "a rare type of courage" to feel up a girl during a fight, because the rest of the enrolling students were decrying the fact he accidentally copped a feel on Elsa. He takes Keer's assertion as a compliment.
  • Love at First Sight: He is immediately smitten with Elsa the moment he laid eyes on her, and the two start flirting almost immediately. It helps that she's a genuine Nice Girl and has no problems giving him a Marshmallow Hell every now and then.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Now while Asesmans did try to kill him and very, very nearly murdered Keer, giving Yu no other option than resorting to lethal force, killing Asesmans resulted in several much bigger problems:
    • Asesman was the power behind the Imperial Mage Academy, and the moment his death is known, Keer will lose most of, if not all, her authority there and the arrogant self-proclaimed "elites" among the student body, fostered by the Three Families are likely to run riot.
    • Asesmans kept the three great families cowed, so with his death, the balance of power in the Felm empire is shot, and now there's nothing keeping said families from banding together to seize control and murder the royal family, including Second Princess Luna.
    • With Asesmans's death, foreign powers that want to invade, but think the effort is too costly, like the Kenz kingdom, will take advantage of Felm's internal instability to start a war.
  • Noodle Incident: He once torched a city in a drunken stupor. Nobody, even himself, knows the particulars.
  • Physical God: All Apostles are this, but as the first, he's one to even them.
  • Power Limiter: To blend in with humans, he has placed at least four seals on himself, and even then, he's basically a gold-medal Olympic athlete compared to the rest of the human population.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He's got eyes red as blood, and he's a Physical God. If they glow, surrendering is a damn fine idea. Running will just make him angry.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: While he can ride mounts just fine, and has no problems on paved roads, riding a carriage on rough terrain gives him motion sickness.

     Charlotte Keer
Will you become my apprentice, Yu?!
A high-ranking teacher at Imperial Mage Academy. She takes an immediate interest in Yu, even though her memories of the time he came to her rescue were genuinely muddled by him. At her orders, Yu is drafted into the academy as her student, and after she saw him kick away her cerberus summon, and later "tame" some of her Flame Tiger summons, she decided she had to have him as a disciple, no matter what.
  • The Beard: Inverted. In addition to borderline forcing Yu to be her apprentice, she then tells others he's her fiance so the Capella family stops trying to rope her into a political marriage.
  • Crime of Self-Defense: She is the most wanted criminal in the empire because she dared to resist Charles's attempt to make her a Sex Slave.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: She frequently beats up on Yu, and the society of the setting expects him to just take it, and apologize for the crime of existing, if need be.
  • Fiery Redhead: She sports red hair, specializes in fire-based magic, and has a very volatile temper.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She flies into a rage with disturbing ease.
  • Kiss of Life: On the receiving end. After Asemans steals her awakened magical talent for himself, leaving her running on fumes, she lost the ability to recover on her own, so Yu has to give back the power she lent him. On the advice of Hilfy, the only viable method was via a kiss.
  • Lap Pillow: Due to the fact that the master-apprentice contract brands and activates on skin contact, and the contract triggered while Yu was hugging her thighs (It Makes Just As Much Sense In Context), whenever she wants to exploit the contract to give him a boost, he has to lay his head in her lap. He enjoys it, and she's embarrassed.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Out of all Yu's love interests, she's the one he explicitly keeps from knowing he's an apostle.
  • Mean Boss: She's prone to bossing Yu around with threats and violence.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Narrowly averted. She takes Yu as a disciple, and soon after very, very nearly loses her life thanks to the machinations of Asemans, who only trained up her magical talent to steal it for himself, a process that would have certainly killed her if not for certain mitigating circumstances.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Since she was young, she was very loyal to the royal family. With his ill-advised Morton's Fork "be my sex slave or die" choices, Prince, now Emperor Charles, causes her to break her anti-magic cuffs and rebel, hurling fire magic his way.
  • Playing with Fire: She specializes in fire based magic.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Her abuse and annoyance towards Yu becomes much, much more understandable when Prince Charles is introduced. Charlotte was frequently close to the royal family as a child, with the emperor himself acknowledging it. As she grew up, she's been repeatedly hounded by various men trying to get her into their bed, including Prince Charles, and none of them would tolerate her saying "no." The only reason she was able to keep her chastity was because they were too busy fighting over her like feral dogs fighting over a piece of raw meat, keeping each other from acting on their lusts, and all of them feared pissing off Aseman, who had his own unhealthy designs on her. In response to being everyone's Lust Object, she's quite jaded and jumpy, always assuming the worst when Yu gets "frisky" or is caught in a compromising position.
  • Tsundere: In the annoying "my emotions are a minefield and if you guess wrong, I'll beat you up" manner.
  • Unwitting Pawn: When her parents were killed, supposedly by one or more rampaging Apostle(s), she was taken in by Asemans, and he started training her in mastering and awakening her fire based magic, only to swoop in when she succeeded, so he could [Plunder] her talent away for himself, promising her the chance for revenge, but never intending to deliver.
  • You're Cute When You're Angry: Although she's quick to violence when she's mad, Yu intentionally riles her up every chance he gets because he finds her at her most adorable when she's blowing her stack.

     Elsa Lawrence
If I'm going to marry anyone, Yu is the man I love, and if I have to fight through you to get to him, so be it, Mother!
Yu's main squeeze and the girl he wishes to marry.
  • Badass Adorable: She's unflinchingly friendly, polite, caring, sensitive, and shy. She is also a force of nature in battle.
  • Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage: She was scheduled to be in one before meeting Yu. Fortunately, he was able to put a kaibosh to it, as her intended husband was up to no good.
  • Close Call Hair Cut: A repeated victim of this. Her hair is singed by the Cerberus in the entrance exam, Kyle shreds a couple of locks with wind magic for daring to speak up on Yu's behalf, and her own mother blasts her hair with a massive icicle "for being a rebellious child" when she tries to flee the Pals Terde "maze of heart" to be with Yu rather than go with the plan to an Arranged Marriage which later turns out to be a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father died when she was young.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: She comes to the conclusion that her full-blooded succubus mother killed the evil vampire Pals Terde upon the latter's Evil Gloating that her would-be husband only wanted her for her body and was planning to send her soul to hell, leaving her an Empty Shell. In truth, it was Yu, calling in a favor from Harves, and using the vampire's soul as payment, who was responsible for the despicable lout getting his comeuppance.
  • Forced into Evil: At a minimum, she stole something from Imperial Mage Academy under threat to her life from her would be husband, The Twelfth Apostle. When she learns the truth of his intentions, she openly rebels, even against her own mother, who forced her into the fiance relationship in the first place, until she too realized she'd been played.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-human, half-succubus.
  • An Ice Person: She specializes in ice-based magic. She inherited this from her mother, among many other things.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Combined with Reluctant Fanservice Girl. She often does borderline erotic things to and around Yu, but doesn't immediately realize it. When she does, she gets embarrassed and yanks away, with High-Pressure Emotion.
  • Invisibility: In the Pentagram Maze tournament, she shows that she's skilled enough with ice magic that she can make an ice mist that completely bends light around her and erases her presence entirely. The judges indicate this technique is so advanced, they wonder if she's actually a first-year at the academy.
  • Love at First Sight: She also fell for Yu the moment they met.
  • Mark of the Supernatural: Her purple eyes tell that she's not entirely human.
  • Mystical White Hair: Her white hair highlights her not-quite-human physiology.
  • Nice Girl: She's a total sweetheart who loves Yu unconditionally.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: She is indeed a powerful Action Girl who can hold her own in just about any fight, but the enemies she winds up facing while she's at Yu's side just happen to be far more skilled, powerful, or both, than she is.
  • Shrinking Violet: At first, she was almost painfully shy. After palling around with Yu for months, she's become much bolder.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: People often confuse paintings of her mother for paintings of her.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: When she comes to Luna's rescue from Razzle in the Pentagram Maze tournament, they take up this dynamic and their synergy is almost perfect, despite never having fought together before!

     Abbigail Izzer
Get a Room! already, you two! Geez!
A student Yu gets paired with as a training partner via random paper ballot. Initially decrying him as nothing more than a shameless pervert, she quickly grows fond of him when he offers her a friendly hand and helps her overcome a dangerous blockage in her training regimen, teaching her the lost "Aura Fighting" technique that allows her to channel Ki, rather than relying on mana, of which she has precious little.
  • Ambiguously Bi: When Harves brings back her soul from the underworld, her soul form kisses Yu on the lips and makes a Love Confession. Once back in her body, when she wakes up on a carriage ride with Yu and Elsa, she discovers that she's got feelings for Elsa too, and confesses them.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: She loathes her father for constantly insulting her, seeing her as nothing more than a Princess Classic to sell off for political leverage, locking her up in the Imperial Palace and denying her any agency, and to top it off, bragging about having her mother executed for no reason at all. So after the axe-crazy bastard commits suicide rather than surrender to Apostle Ulmann, she disowns him post-humously.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She is very tan and her ethnicity is unknown.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She really begins to fall for Yu when he rescues her from a gang and heeded her plea to help rescue her friend Elsa when the latter disappeared from Imperial Mage Academy.
  • Blood Knight: Subdued, but present. There are few things she likes more than beating down haughty people with her axe.
  • Romantic Wingman: In chapter 62, she pushes Elsa and Yu into having a date, while she and Hilfy take care of matters elsewhere.

Original form.
After being awakened by Yu.
The Pollette family sword originally wielded by Kyle Pollette. Kyle, with a jealous superiority complex, kept insisting that Yu had no business in the academy and challenged him to a duel. Yu was fully intending on ignoring it until Kyle went and threatened Elsa, at that point Yu agreed to the duel with the following conditions, if (by some miracle) Yu lost, he'd drop out of the academy, but if Kyle loses, Yu would claim the "Green Silver" the family sword. Although Kyle absolutely refuses to admit his loss, despite being repeatedly curbstomped by Yu, the sword, which literally came to life in Yu's hands, honors the bet, and submits to Yu, who proves himself a much, much better master than any of the people in the Pollette family.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: She loves getting head-pats, especially from Yu.
  • Badass Adorable: She looks like a child, but her performance as a sword and her powers as a wind-mage are nothing to sneeze at.
  • The Bet: And she's the bargaining chip. Before the duel, Kyle agreed to offer her up to Yu should the latter win. Despite Kyle insisting Yu's a weakling beyond all possible reason, as Kyle's getting pounded into the pavement on a repeated basis, Yu gains ownership the first time Kyle got curbstomped, but Kyle just kept going, refusing to admit his loss, until he was put in the hospital, and his own family called him out on it.
  • Blow You Away: In addition to taking on the form of a sword, she can also use wind-based magic.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She always snarks with a firm poker-face on.
  • Freudian Threat: She wakes Yu after sensing his emotional turmoil due to an Erotic Dream (and a tame one at that) regarding Elsa. At first, Hilfy insists on "allieviating his needs" in a manner that looks like she's offering herself up as a sex-friend. When Yu relents and agrees to her badgering, she whips out a pair of scissors and aims for his crotch.
  • Idiot Hair: Even more pronounced than Yu's. A lock at the top of her head sticks straight up in the air, no matter what anyone does about it.
  • It Was a Gift: She was given to the Pollette family by the Elemental King in return for some unstated favor in the past.
  • Living MacGuffin: Although Kyle willingly offered her up to Yu if he won their duel, with Hilfy herself choosing to serve Yu faithfully, Kyle and the rest of the Pollette family still consider her the family's possession, seeing Yu as a thief. It's only the family's fear of offending Asemans that's keeping them from trying to steal her back.
  • Servile Snarker: She likes Yu and happily serves and protects him, but she's also fond of snarking him into trouble every chance she gets.

Rich, powerful, handsome? I've got to marry him! If not this life, then the next, or the next after that!
Introduced as a Honey Trap seeking to fleece Yu, she genuinely falls for him when he rescues her and her father from Tiger and then goes on to make an Accidental Proposal when he's drunk.
  • Friend in the Black Market: With her father being Snake, the mafia boss, she can get Yu and co. in touch with the shady side of the law if needed.
  • A Friend in Need: When Abbigail is suffering Yin Qi poisoning as a result of Earl Pals Terde's schemes, and Yu needs both a place to stay and a large quantity of Earth Grade Grass, enough to bathe in, repeatedly, she provides these things, free of charge, saving Abbigail's life. In return, Yu is more than happy to do her a favor, and save her father from Tiger's mob-war.
  • Gold Digger: At first, all she cared about was the size of a man's wallet. After meeting Yu, and having him save both her life and her father's, she cares for his character too, and Yu's the man she wants.
  • Honey Trap: Prior to meeting Yu, she would tempt men with her sex appeal and then fleece them, either at the underground auction, or just rob them. When she tried this with Yu, he completely misunderstood her intentions, and considers her a benefactor because her schemes actually wound up netting him a rare treasure that would serve Elsa well.
  • Intimate Marks: After the Kenz kingdom arc, she sports a brand on her breast that marks her as Yu's possession. It was the only way he could save her soul after what Razzle put her through.
  • The Lad-ette: She's just as rough and tumble as the rowdiest of her underworld buddies.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Discussed. She laments that maybe her long career of being a Honey Trap is the reason why the fates conspire to keep her and Yu, the guy she's genuinely fond of, apart.
  • Love Hurts: She knows Yu can't stick around only because he's got urgent business away from her, but it still hurts her that she can't be by his side 24/7.
  • Mafia Princess: Her father is an underworld boss, Snake.
  • Out of Focus: She seldom makes on-screen appearances.
  • Women Prefer Strong Men: What she likes most about Yu is not his huge wallet, but the fact that he can kick ass, take names, and then kick more ass without breaking a sweat.

     Second princess Luna Flem
I would rather die here than marry someone like you, His Highness Razzle!
Introduced forced into Altar Diplomacy with the second prince of Kenz, Razzle, arranged by her elder brother who rightly fears the three great families. She strongarms herself into the Pentagram competition to reach the lowest level and make a Deal with the Devil with the actual devil sealed under the ruins, to defend herself and her country from enemies foreign and domestic. Unfortunately, this plan of hers flies off the rails almost immediately.
  • Abomination Accusation Attack: She is fond of launching these at Yu all the time.
  • All Women Are Lustful: Once Yu manages to get her into his harem, both for political and romantic reasons, she's the most... passionate towards him, especially in the bedroom and is on-screen shown to be the one who pushes him down, not vice-versa.
  • Altar Diplomacy: Her older brother, at the advice of "some strategist he picked up somewhere" arranged for her to be married off to Razzel so the royal family could call upon the Kenz military to deal with the internal strife to come from the Three Great Families. Neither she nor Razzel were keen on the idea. Razzel got butt hurt that Yu offered him an antidote to the poison(s) he subjected himself to in exchange for getting this arrangement annulled.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Being a princess, Yu believes a crown suits her, so when he's challenged to a duel by the Beast King demon, Yu demands the Beast King crown as his victory prize. When Yu inevitably wins, he hands the crown over to her as a gift. It not only changes size to fit her head, it changes form to reflect her sense of aesthetics and personality.
    • It happens again when she ascends the throne of the Flam Empire.
  • Demonic Possession: Unfortunately for her, the devil locked up under the Pentagram Maze is not interested in making deals, only in escaping its prison. It takes control of her body and forces her to chant the spells required to free itself.
  • Despair Event Horizon: She jumps right over it when she hears her family was murdered by the Ezers, save Charles, and her empire has fallen. This makes her easy prey for the devil seed placed inside her by the devil who possessed her.
  • Evil Costume Switch: As a result of "falling to devil's seduction," she not only gets Intimate Marks on her breasts, but her Princess Classic True Blue Femininity dress and the beast king crown morph and change into an ash colored Obviously Evil and Spikes of Villainy respectively.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blonde and a kind woman with a strong sense of justice.
  • Identical Stranger: According to Apostle Caspias, she looks and acts exactly like Somilia, the woman he loved 5000 years ago and still mourns, so he schemes to make her a Replacement Goldfish and lets her be overcome by her Superpowered Evil Side.
  • Intimate Marks: When she hears about the fall of her home country, thanks to a coup, and the devil's seed inside her starts taking over, a tattoo like brand appears on her breasts, visible just outside her cleavage.
  • Magic Knight: Equally skilled with sword and sorcery.
  • Making a Splash: Although thunder magic is her specialty, she also excells in using water magic.
  • Off Screen Moment Of Awesome: She kills and usurps the Demon Lord, taking his title, in the few minutes it takes Yu to catch up to her, after she already trashed the four Demon Kings in combat single-handedly. Unfortunately, all of this happens off-screen.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: Justified. She wakes up, naked, to catch Yu taking off his pants. Naturally, she fears the worst and hurls lightning bolts at him, until she remembers what she did while possessed and realizes she stripped herself naked and Yu was innocent, until he trips and puts them both in a compromising position...
  • Royal Rapier: She first fights with a rapier, which snaps when used against a stone golem, then she whips out her royal family's ancestral weapon.
  • Shock and Awe: Her mastery revolves around lighting, especially when wielding the ancestral sword, Aisi.
  • Top Wife: Despite Else being the most near and dear to Yu's heart, she's the one who makes the rules in the harem, justified by the fact that she's the Empress of Flam and Yu is her royal consort, so his romantic proclivities are very, very much part of her purview.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She's pleasant to just about everyone except those who are so odious that she believes they don't any courtesy, or people she's so comfortable with that she can let her guard down and reveal her less-than-pleasant aspects. Yu can't be sure which of those apply to him since she verbally eviscerates him at every opportunity.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Her plan to unseal the devil under Pentagram Maze was just part of Jester Pollette's yet unstated schemes.

Chief! Give me back my mother!
A cute Cat Girl of the Beast Ear demon tribe Yu encounters in the Goblin Demon tribe village, about to be snacked on by an ogre, and originally slated to be offerred to the Green Demon tribe for essential supplies, especially water. Yu winds up legally married to her, by accident, when he gives her a head-pat that backfires, not knowing that for the Beast Ear tribe, the only people who can rub their ears are close relatives or marriage partners.
  • Accidental Marriage: Yu gives her some head-pats to calm her down, which inevitably involves rubbing her ears. It's only after he's done this that he's informed that if an opposite sex Beast Ears tribesman lets their ears be rubbed, it means they're accepting the rubber as a marriage partner.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Which backfires, as seen above.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: As Yu is heading to the demon capital, hoping to find a bridge from the demon world to the human world, he appoints her chief in his stead.
  • Cat Girl: She has cat ears on her head.
  • The Cutie: What else would you call a sweet, innocent, and cheerful girl in her early teens at the oldest?
  • Interrupted Intimacy: She waltzes into Yu's tent after the tribal custom, declaring her intentions with a dance. She then offers him her virginity. Near panicked from the implications, Yu tries to talk her down, but simply placing his hands on her shoulders causes her to faint from nervousness. She responds to all questions with "no comment" the next morning.
  • Made a Slave: She was sold to the Goblin tribe by her tribe chief and then scheduled to be sold to the Green Demon tribe.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Clearly the youngest girl in Yu's Unwanted Harem.
  • You Killed My Father: She holds the village chief responsible for the death of her mother after learning that the "illness" her mother died from wasn't an illness so much as a symptom of extreme water deprivation, and the medicine to cure her would have worked if she was simply given a cup of water to go with it, water that the village chief denied her.

The imperial family's Ancestral Weapon.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Although Princess Luna is not strong enough to command her, Aisi manifests her human form and agrees to serve because Luna treasures her and treats her with utmost kindness.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Which gets a lampshade from Luna. When Yu channels his "Forbidden Lightning Barage" through her, Aisi acts and speaks in very sexually suggestive terms and body-language. Luna repeatedly decries her and Yu for being perverted as a result.
  • Insistent Terminology: She's not being perverted when she channels Yu's lightning based magic! It's special training!
  • Shock and Awe: She is born of the Thunder element, so channels lightning-based magic and attacks.

Imperial Royal Academy

One of the two Imperial academies, and the one run by Asemans.

     Principal Asemans
I was telling the truth when I said you awakening your talent would help me immensely, dear Charlotte. Now that I've taken it, I am just that much closer to being able to beat the Apostles and become a god! Bwahahahaha!!!
A seemingly kind and gentle old man who adopts Charlotte Keer after the death of her parents, apparently in the wake of an Apostle rampage. He trains her in the use of her talent for fire magic, always sincerely encouraging and praising her efforts. He reveals his true nature when she succeeds, and it's revealed he's actually a demon who just wanted to steal her power for himself.
  • Affably Evil: Unflinchingly jovial and polite, even as he's committing horrible atrocities.
  • Assimilation Backfire: He tries his [Plunder] skill on Yu, but as an Apostle, Yu's might is simply way, way too much for his magic vessel to store, causing him to explode from the power he was trying to steal, completely destroying him.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: He tries unleashing [Hell Fire] against Yu, only to discover Yu is the source and master of it. So then he uses [Plunder] to try and steal Yu's ability to do so, learning too late Yu's true identity, and winding up dead from the Phlebotinum Overload.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He raised Charlotte Keer like he was a doting grandfather, and it appeared to be genuine, but he was really just waiting until her talent for fire magic reached its peak to steal it away from her.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: When he's standing over Charlotte's unconscious and dying form, and sees Yu come out of Hastan's void prison, having just killed the Tentacled Terror in there -which even he indicates means that Yu should be treated with caution- he decides to answer "did you do this?" with "yes, I did" and then attack, rather than a Half-Truth like "I arrived just now and Charlotte was like this" or even a lie like "I came to help but I was too late." Naturally, this pisses off Yu and gets Asemans killed.
  • Cavalry Betrayal: When Charlotte and Yu are set upon by Wende Capella's army, and Charlotte starts fighting back, he shows up and steals Charlotte's power, leaving her at death's door.
  • Cool Old Guy: As long as you're not someone he's targeting for his ambitions, he is this. If you are a target, Evil Old Folks applies far more.
  • Evil Old Folks: The truth of his nature. He's centuries old and he will happily spend decades raising a girl so he can steal away the fruits of her labors, then leaving her to die as a result of the backlash.
  • Evil Power Vacuum: With his death, there is now nothing stopping the vile ambitions of the three great families and enemy countries that want to invade... except for Yu.
  • Evil Virtues: Patience and Kindness. He will happily spend decades raising a child with kindness if he believes the fruits of her talents are something he can exploit and steal for himself.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and he taunts Yu by stating that the moment he saw Charlotte's power as a target, he only saw her as a walking, talking corpse.
  • Godhood Seeker: His hostility to the Apostles is simply nothing more than envy at their might and wanting to surpass and supplant them.
  • Mugging the Monster: He attacks Yu to Leave No Witnesses, but Yu is not only an Apostle, he's The First Apostle, by the time he realizes this, it's already too late to stop his death from happening.
  • One-Man Army: He alone was able to counter-balance the full might of the Three Great Families and served as a huge deterrent to enemy nations that wanted to invade Flem Empire. Charlotte Keer is running interference to make everyone think he's still alive to keep everything stable.
  • Power Parasite: His [Plunder] ability allows him to steal the full power and abilities of someone he targets. Unfortunately for him, he can't just steal power willy-nilly. He needs to be able to control and store the power he's stealing, too much and he bursts like a balloon.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's really over 500 years old. He's just been sporting multiple human disguises since the last time he clashed with an Apostle and lost, fleeing for his life.
  • Red Baron: "The Devil of Plunder"
  • Villains Never Lie: The way he raised Charlotte with kindness was genuine, and having her awaken her talents to the fullest was indeed of great aid to him, but he never, ever promised that she'd survive helping him, nor that she would be fighting by his side.

     Vice Principal Claire
Seems like I only show up to look pretty...

  • Bit Character: Her appearances are few and far between, and she doesn't do much.
  • Flat Character: All we know about her is that she's the vice principal.
  • Number Two: She's the vice principal.

Imperial Mage Academy

Pollette House

     Kyle Pollette
Just sit back and watch, dear princess Elsa, as I beat this flame-tiger with ease, and then that "weakling" Yu.
The first of the Pollette family introduced. He takes an immediate dislike to Yu for several reasons, being close to Elsa (who he wanted for himself), getting into Imperial Mage Academy with a dubious background and no obvious backers, and for refusing to bow and acknowledge his self-proclaimed "greatness" and "superior talent", returning back every passive-aggressive insult he got. He absolutely refuses to admit, even in his own mind, that Yu is clearly superior to him, even insisting on calling Yu "a weakling" as Yu continuously, and with ease, keeps countering and overpowering him on every single assault.
  • Assumed Win: His default position in any fight. When he attacked the flame tiger as he and Elsa were teamed up by lots, he presumed he beat it before the dust even settled, nearly getting his face clawed off by the retaliation, only avoiding such a fate because Elsa called out a warning.
  • Blow You Away: As with the rest of his family, he specializes in wind-based magic.
  • Feeling Oppressed by Their Existence: He absolutely hates Yu for the fact that the latter exists, because he can only see Yu as a "weakling" that somehow stole his way into the academy, despite the fact that Yu repeatedly, and easily, kept slamming him to the ground, countering every one of his attacks.
  • Hard Work Fallacy: He convinces himself that Yu is "a weakling" because Yu is rather laid-back and completely ignores how Yu is actually very knowledgeable and can wield "original magic" allowing him to breeze through the class assignments and tests.
  • Hypocrite: He decries Yu for accidentally copping a feel on Elsa while shielding her from the Cerberus the class fought at the entrance exam, but he prioritizes flirting and showboating with Elsa when Keer is testing them by having them tag-team summoned Flame Tigers.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He occasionally acts and speaks as if he cares about his fellow students, but it's all Condescending Compassion, at best, and then just to boost his own self-proclaimed superiority.
  • Lethally Stupid: Because he's got way, way too much pride in his wind magic, he's a menace to whatever party he's put in.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He's got a rather long pony-tail and is at least physically handsome, but his personality leaves much to be desired.
  • Revenge Myopia: He and his house have constantly antagonized Yu from the very first appearance and are traitors to the Flam Empire, yet he colludes with Razzle seeking vengeance when Kerr and Luna fight back, defeating them and driving them from power.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Razzle lets him think he'll be "restoring his family's honor" while working with him on the plan to Take Over the World using an ancient ruin to convert the Kenz kingdom population into a powerful undead army, but the moment he has nothing more to contribute, Razzle kills him off with a send-off line to "restore his family's honor in the underworld."
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: He lets his unfounded pride in his mastery of wind-magic repeatedly write checks his talent can't cash, not only putting himself in danger, but everyone he has to work with.

     Jester Pollette
Tiger was merely a test subject. It doesn't matter if he's alive or dead.
The empire's top sage, and his experiments are responsible for Tiger's One-Winged Angel form.
  • Did Not See That Coming: He had Charlotte on the ropes until he stole her "Crimson Unicorn Jade" that Yu secured for her. Unlike Yu, he didn't realize it's an infant apostle, one that sees Charlotte as "mother." Cue a burned hand, Charlotte getting a Next Tier Power-Up, and a complete reversal of the one-sided beatdown he was dishing out, getting immolated to death for his smug arrogance and ordering Charlotte and Elsa delivered back to Charles for a bit of sexual slavery.
  • Evil Uncle: He's Kyle's uncle and is even more vile than he is.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He speaks in polite tones and body-language, but his tone drips with contempt for everyone.
  • For Science!: He has no reason for his experiments except that he finds it interesting.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and orchestrated a crime war to test his human to monster conversion theories through field experiments.
  • Instant Allegiance Artifact: Using an ancient spell bound to the family bloodline, he seals Hilfy back into the sword and snatches her away from Charlotte Keer and Elsa.
  • I Shall Taunt You: As Yu and his team were about to go into the Pentagram games, he whispers in Yu's ear "Hilfy is in your custody, for now."
  • Karmic Death: He conspired with Charles to have Kerr forced into sexual slavery and then summarily executed, and when Kerr fought back took her down with Hilfy enhanced wind magic. Kerr, boosted by an infant apostle, retaliated by reducing him to ash.
  • Mad Scientist: He wants to boost human power by converting people to monsters, and cares not a whit about ethics in his experiments.
  • Scissors Cuts Rock: When he used the ancestral spell to seize Hilfy, he dominates Charlotte in a straight up fight, despite her elemental advantage, simply because he's got far more power. When the "jade" gives Charlotte the power to fight him on equal footing, she utterly stomps him.
  • Smug Snake: He always walks around as if he's the smartest man in the room.
  • Straw Hypocrite: Yu gains custody of Hilfy after Kyle used her as a betting chip in a duel and lost, yet Jester calls Yu a thief who stole her. When Jester beats Charlotte into unconsciousness and takes the "Red Unicorn Jade" out of her storage ring by force, he proclaims "I accept this jade" as if Charlotte gave it up willingly. The jade itself disagrees with this assessment, burning his hand and giving Charlotte a Next Tier Power-Up via Fusion Dance.
  • This Cannot Be!: Says "How can this be?" before being immolated.

Capella House

     Wende Capella
That bitch Charlotte! She will rue spurning me!
Charlotte's self-proclaimed Arranged Marriage fiance.
  • Bad Boss: He's on-screen beating up his maid Loina because Charlotte went off elsewhere after escorting Yu and Hilfy into the "exchange meeting" where various nobles were preening and boasting of their various magi-tech research.
  • Entitled to Have You: He sees Charlotte as his legally bound wife, and believes that she's the idiot for not realizing it.
  • Exact Words: He promises to lead Yu and Charlotte to the volcano where a Quilin is nesting. He never promised to lead them back...
  • Faux Affably Evil: Puts on an air of politeness and civility, but he completely flips his shit the moment even one thing goes wrong or at any insult real or imagined, mostly imagined.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He flies into rages with disgusting ease.
  • If I Can't Have You…: As a result of learning Yu is Charlotte's "fiance" and then one of his spies reports hearing some suspicious panting and moaning from Charlotte's bedroom, he completely flips his shit, flies into a rage, and schemes to murder both Charlotte and Yu, even hiring Hastan, the Void Mage, to help him.

Lord Wende Capella, please don't hurt me! I'm sorry!
The maid that greets Charlotte and crew.
  • Extreme Doormat: Who knows how long Wende Capella has been beating this poor girl around.
  • Meido: She's the family maid.
  • One-Shot Character: Shows up at the Capella house, and once the story leaves the area, she's never seen or heard from again.

     Gretel Capella
Hey, I was talking to the girl (that you were raring to kiss just now), commoner trash, but out!
The student originally chosen by Charlotte Keer to lead the team for the Pentagram Maze competition. He and his team sneak out of their hotel room(s) and prowl the streets looking for fun, and decide it's a fine idea to go up to a random couple, in this case Yu and Elsa, and try to flirt with the girl, then go and get their trousers in a twist that the guy of said couple calls them out on it.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Gretel prepares to launch attack magic with possible lethal force behind it at Yu for "slandering him by calling him a liar."
  • Game-Breaking Injury: Preparing to use attack magic prompted Yu to retaliate with physical force before the spell was cast. The resulting injuries, though not life-threatening, made him unable to participate in the Pentagram Maze competition.
  • Mugging the Monster: He and his crew thought it a great idea to go butt into the private conversation of a clearly romantic couple, presuming they were dealing with non-combat commoners. He got literally stomped for his arrogance.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: By antagonizing Yu and Elsa, they got themselves kicked out of the participation, letting the far, far more competent and actual battle-experienced Yu and co take the competition. This saved everyone's bacon when Luna was cornered and unsealed the devil as a last-ditch effort to save her country.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Sneaking out of their hotel room(s) in the middle of the night in an unfamiliar city is bad enough, but walking up to a clearly romantic couple of strangers? It's amazing they didn't wind up on the wrong side of a crime.

Kenz Kingdom

Prince Razzle, help me!!
The top chef at the restaurant bought and run by Prince Razzle.
  • The Aggressive Drug Dealer: He slipped highly addictive drugs into the meals the restaurant served. This tricked the patrons into thinking they were getting quality meals and forcing them to return for more, as they slowly withered away...
  • He Knows Too Much: Prince Razzle openly kills him in public "as an apology" and to keep him from testifying.
  • No Name Given: His name is never mentioned.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Attempted but averted. As he was being brought to task for the drugs Yu found in his meal, he was raring to use Prince Razzle's name as a shield until he saw the prince in attendance glaring at him.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: Again, putting drugs in the meals of his patrons without their knowledge.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Introduced and then killed off, in the same chapter.

     Second Prince Razzle
First you turn me down then accuse me? Sounds like you don't want to leave this place alive!
The second prince of the Kenz kingdom.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: His death is met with grand celebration, his name remembered for all time in infamy.
  • An Arm and a Leg: The first thing Luna does when possessed by the devil is chop off his arm. At this point, he realizes he's not dealing with Princess Luna any more. He somehow grows it back off-screen.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Maybe he needed to disable the cameras as a signal to his conspirators to disable the emergency teleport system, so he can claim it was an "accident" that Luna and co died in the competition after the fact, but stopping his attacks every few minutes to gloat about his self-perceived superiority comes back to bite him repeatedly, ending with an Engineered Public Confession.
  • Cain and Abel: He's the Cain to all his other siblings, both by blood and adoption.
  • Dirty Coward: He loves to lord it over others when he's in the superior position, or he thinks he's in the superior position. When he realizes he's outmatched, he tries to run, hide, or beg for mercy. The Kenz kingdom arc has a needlessly long fight between himself and Yu, because Yu has to trick him into thinking he has a chance if he pulls out all the stops, rather than just curbstomping him from the start, for fear of what will happen if he runs and mangaes to get away.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His secondary magic manipulates earth and stone.
  • Engineered Public Confession: In the Pentagram Maze competition, he goes to great lengths to destroy all magical cameras so he can gloat about how he's rigged the place to disable the emergency teleports, and plans to kill everyone present: Yu, Abigail, Elsa, and Princess Luna. As he's mid rant, Yu shows him that he missed one, the camera he had in his pocket. Well, there goes the whole Villain with Good Publicity image Razzle built up over decades.
  • Evil Is Petty: He kidnaps Linda and shoves her into a machine his accomplice Kyle Polette rigged to steal her life energy and her soul, just to spite Yu for daring to get in his way with a scheme to force his younger adopted brother's knight order to serve him instead. Not to mention "daring to insult him" by asking him to annul his engagement to Luna, that he didn't want anyway, in exchange for an antidote to poisons he inflicted on himself via careless handling.
  • Godhood Seeker: During the Kenz kingdom arc, he meddles with an ancient artifact holding the Origin energy of two apostles and once he fuses with this ancient relic, looking to ascend to godhood, as he believes is owed him.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: When he was introduced, he was suffering poisonous side-effects from mishandling poisons, medicines, and other drugs he was concocting, not because he ingested them, but because he foolishly failed to realize poisons can be inhaled and absorbed through the skin if lab waste is disposed of poorly.
  • If I Can't Have You…: Part of his schemes involves convincing his father to force his younger adopted brother to sign over all his talented and loyal True Companions over to himself, including his fiance, when Yu puts a kaibosh to this plan by pointing to a preexisting legal agreement between said sibling and himself, Razzle alters his plan into turning said companions into undead known as Ghost Apprentices. By the time Yu can do anything about it, all of them are too far gone to rescue and have to be struck down, except for said fiance who just manages to hang on by the skin of her teeth.
  • Implausible Deniability: He claims that he knew nothing about his restaurant's head-chef being involved in Tampering with Food and Drink, lacing the meals with highly addictive drugs. The fact that said chef ran to him for help, and he killed the guy to keep him from testifying seriously casts doubt on this claim, but since there was no hard evidence...
  • Make It Look Like an Accident: He makes a concerted effort to destroy every camera present so he can hide his attempt to murder Luna and co, and then walk out afterwards pretending he's shocked that the teleport system failed and all "the nuisances" are dead.
  • Moral Myopia: He's repeatedly harassed Luna, had his restaurant serve foods laced with addictive drugs, responded to Yu's offer to cure his deadly mishandling of drugs, for the price of annulling a wedding contract he didn't want anyway by sending an assassin at Yu, to kidnap him and torture him to reveal the antidote for free and then make him pay "for the insult of making demands," and rigs the final Maze level into his own personal killing field, but Luna being Crazy-Prepared for his ploy to use poison incense by stealing the recipe for the antidote beforehand makes her the despicable one.
  • Phlebotinum Overload: He's not the first human to try and emulate an apostle. The human body and soul simply can not handle the strain of that much power. Razzle, being a raging megalomaniac, tried to assume the power of not one, but two, and thus met his end much, much quicker, especially once Yu provokes him into pulling out all the stops.
  • Playing with Syringes: He has a long, long history, by his own admission, of testing medicines, both beneficial and harmful, on unwilling test subjects. Even forcing his own assassin to ingest some unknown reagent as punishment for failing to kidnap Yu.
  • Poisonous Person: He specializes in offensive use of magical and mundane poisons.
  • Real Politik: Combined with The Farmer and the Viper. Rather than be grateful that Yu gave him the antidote to his accidental self-poisoning and got him out of a marriage he didn't want, he acts as if Yu forced him to make concessions, and this will set a precedent for others to do the same with Aggressive Negotiations. His arrogance ultimately ends with him becoming an Unwitting Pawn to Jester Pollette.
  • Take Over the World: All his schemes were predicated on the ambition that the world, in its entirety, is rightfully his, it's just that the stupid plebeians all around haven't been informed of it yet. As he's an aspiring god and the world should be bowing and worshipping him.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Expecting gratitude from him is like expecting water to be dry. He will react to anyone doing him a favor as if he's been insulted and will scheme to get his "righteous vengeance" upon the poor fool.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He along with Luna were both pawns in Jester's scheme to unseal the devil under Pentagram Maze for some unstated end.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When he notices that his Evil Gloating was publicly broadcast, he goes completely murder crazy and doubles down on his attempts to kill everyone in the maze with him.
  • Villains Want Mercy: When Luna, demonically possessed, literally tears into him, he drops to the ground and starts begging for rescue, and continues begging when Yu and co are getting ready to deal with the devil Luna unleashed. Surprisingly, he gets it.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: As the second prince of Kenz, he spent decades building himself up as Prince Charming to the public eye. He blows it in a matter of minutes in the Pentagram Maze competition.
  • Wrong Assumption: When he sees Luna go for the double doors at the end of the maze floor where he's at, he presumes she's trying to escape and gives chase. Too late, he realizes she's reached her Godzilla Threshold and is unsealing a devil, to fight against him.

     Dark Pavilion Killer
He's at least a Legend class, maybe higher!
The assassin sent at Yu to kidnap him for Prince Razzle.
  • Clothing Damage: Her ninja outfit shreds to pieces as Yu tries to identify her.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Purple hair and eyes.
  • Defeat by Modesty: When Yu shreds her clothes, that's when she decides to try and book it. Keer attacking Yu without letting him explain himself helped her to escape.
  • Ignored Expert: Subverted. Prince Razzle initially dismisses her professional claims that Yu is far stronger than he appears, but then remembers them when facing him in Pentagram Maze.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Razzle murdered her mother when she was just a baby then hid her in an orphanage before having his assassin order snatch her up and force her into the assassination business.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: Turns out she's Razzle's younger half-sister, which Razzle himself reveals shortly before trying to kill her off.
  • Samus Is a Girl: When Yu uses Clothing Damage to try and gather the assassin's identity, he realizes the assassin is a girl, to his amusement.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Combined with Uncertain Doom. Did she survive the drug she was ordered to ingest? We'll never know since she disappeared the moment she was dismissed after prince Razzle received her report.
    • Turns out to be a case of Out of Focus since she returns in the Kenz kingdom arc as a major character.
  • You Have Failed Me: Prince Razzle orders her to ingest an unknown reagent in lieu of killing her for failing in her mission to drug and kidnap Yu.

Felm Empire

     First Prince Charles
Charles always gets what he wants.
Luna's older brother. He's first introduced in chapter 111 colluding with Jester Pollette, promising the latter some unstated favor the moment he ascends to the throne and has Charlotte Keer brought to his bed "intact."
  • Ambition Is Evil: There is no vileness he won't overlook to ascend to the throne.
  • The Caligula: His reign is off to a bad start. His first royal edict is sentencing Charlotte Keer to death for things beyond her control then offering a "pardon" if she agrees to be his Sex Slave, with the explicit threat that he'll kill her when he gets bored.
  • Entitled Bastard: If he wants it, he considers it legally his, whether it's objects, or people, it doesn't matter.
  • Entitled to Have You: To Charlotte Keer.
  • Evil Prince: He's the crown prince and obviously evil.
  • The Hedonist: Implied. He's introduced being serviced by two attractive women and surrounded by luxuries.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: He demands Charlotte become his Sex Slave or choose the death penalty. Say hello to Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal.
  • Smug Snake: He prances around as if he's the smartest man in the room, and completely untouchable. In reality, he's both a weakling and a moron.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: With his sister Luna missing and presumed dead in the Demon World, he mocks her sacrifice and calls it "divine providence that the idiot is out of the way."
  • Too Dumb to Live: The rest of his family was murdered by the Ezer family in a violent coup (save Luna who is trapped with Yu in the demon world), his empire is embroiled in a civil war; the only reason he has any pull is a very, very tenuous alliance with the Pollette family, with Jester Pollette agreeing to support him only until his desires are met. One would think he'd be desperate for allies and would do anything in his power to win over Charlotte Keer before the Ezer family does. Nope. He has her arrested, sentenced to death and then smugly taunts her "it's not such a bad deal to be a Sex Slave, right?" Then has her hunted down when she takes offence and escapes.
  • Uriah Gambit: He offered up his sister Luna to Razzel, presumably to stabilize the empire at the rumored death of Aseman. What he was really doing was giving her up to get her out of the way for his own ascension to the throne.
  • Villainous Demotivator: In chapter 115, the Ezer family launches a coup, now that Yu and Luna are in the Demon Dimension and Aseman is off "cultivating" somewhere. During this coup, the Ezers straight up murder the rest of the royal family, aside from himself and the country is literally split in half, with the Pollette family supporting Charles and the Ezers putting their own heir on the throne. In the midst of all this, Charles get the "brilliant" idea to have Charlotte Kerr and Elsa arrested and brought before him, then announces that Charlotte is sentenced to death by hanging "for failing to protect the royal family" when she wasn't even at the royal castle during the coup. Charlotte calls him out on it and asks how the hell killing her can do anything to bolster his position.
  • You Have Failed Me: "For Failing to protect the royal family, you, Charlotte Keer, Principal of the Imperial Magic Academy, are sentenced to death by hanging!"


     Lilith Lawrence
What an inconvenient time for my dear daughter to enter her rebellious phase. Good little girls should be in their bed, sleeping, right now.
Elsa's mother.
  • Demonic Possession: Unusual in that she winds up as a demon possessed by another demon. When Yu reunites with her in the Demon world, she's possessed by the queen of Dream Demons, who is invariably hostile to humans.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her true form has horns.
  • Life Drinker: And it's automatic with no way to shut it off. She drains life energy every time she gets intimate with a human, which led to her beloved husband's death.
  • The Lost Lenore: Her former husband Duke Lawrence.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She's horrified and laments trying to stop Elsa from eloping with Yu after hearing what Elsa's pre-arranged marriage partner had in mind.
  • Parents as People: She agreed to force Elsa into an Arranged Marriage with the Twelfth Apostle to spare her the pain of losing a husband and spare her life, but was horrified and enraged when she heard Pals Terde brag that said Apostle was planning to send Elsa's soul to hell, only interested in having Elsa's body as an Empty Shell.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She wears purple clothes, has purple horns and eyes, and is powerful as a 100% pure blood succubus.
  • Winged Humanoid: She can sport wings big enough to allow her to fly at will.

     Earl Pals Terde
Lookie here. I've caught a couple of little mice in my den!
The vampire acting as the messenger between the demon realm and the human realm, and Lilith's de-facto "husband."
  • Dirty Coward: Very much so. He lures people into his "Maze of Heart" and torments them for his own amusement. He flees when he finds himself outmatched or someone tries to fight him outside of said maze, where he's at his strongest.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: He spends a great deal of his interactions with Yu taunting, bragging, and gloating, waving the fact that he brutalized Yu's friends and love interests Abbigail and Elsa respectively, even as he saw that Yu is clearly far more than a "mere human." Say hello to a brutal smackdown from The First Apostle and a nice Karmic Death.
  • Evil Gloating: When he's got Elsa bound and helpless, he brags that her impending marriage to the twelfth apostle is a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Fangs Are Evil: As a vampire, he has fangs, and he's an arrogant, cowardly, and sadistic sot.
  • Karmic Death: His favorite entertainment is using his contacts in the underworld to have people's souls yanked out and using their empty shells as foot-soldiers to torment their loved ones. Harves kills him by yanking out his soul and dragging it off to hell because this yahoo was in cahoots with scoundrels who were collecting Earth Grass to threaten Harves with.

     Dream Demon Queen Lirim
You can't harm me in the dream world. I am invincible!
The demon who possessed Lillith, the beast king, the arachne queen, and openly tries to destroy Lillith's consciousness when she tries, and fails, to possess Yu and Luna.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: She flaunts her dream world as making her "invincible." Yu drags her into his dream world, where he makes the rules, and defeats her with as much ease as he would a helpless infant.
  • Crime of Self-Defense: She blames Yuriel protecting Lillith's consciousness in a Lotus-Eater Machine for the fact that she attacks and tries to destroy said consciousness.
  • People Puppets: She psychicly attacks the minds of others through her dream world, and takes over their bodies to do her nastiness.
  • Smug Snake: She struts around as if she's unstoppable, boasting that even the current demon king is no match for her. Yu goes and proves her wrong.

Human Criminal Underworld:

     Ye se zi
Final warning. Give me the bracelet and you can walk away with your life.
One of Yu's rivals over the emerald bracelet at the underground auction. When Yu unwittingly violates the rules by climbing onto the stage to collect his winnings, without authorization, she's one of the contenders who exploits the punishment to try and take it from him, by force.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's raven haired and is disinterested in just about everything.
  • Deadly Upgrade: Some time between her appearance in the underworld auction and her reappearance in the Imperial Royal antechamber, she met an unnamed apostle or apostle servant and got an ice-powered Origin boost. Using this power would have killed her if Yuu didn't yank it out of her via Forceful Kiss.
  • Defeat by Modesty: Yu gets her to give up attacking him by using a borrowed sword to shred her ice magic and her clothes without harming the skin underneath, giving all the other attendees at the auction a show.
  • The Dreaded: When the fight over the emerald bracelet started and she took to the stage, all other contenders, save Yu, backed off almost immediately in fright. When Yu defeats her, everyone else is terrified of him.
  • Four-Star Badass: According to her introductory inscription, she's a high-ranking general in the Imperial army, and when she shows off her powers, she's a force of nature.
  • An Ice Person: She specializes in ice-based magic and is stronger than Elsa, and maybe even Lillith.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: She gives up on the emerald bracelet when she realizes Yu could easily kill her, but chooses not to.
  • Last Chance to Quit: As listed in the page quote, she gives Yu several opportunities to give up the emerald bracelet.
  • One Degree of Separation: She's actually Abbigail's older half-sister.
  • Red Baron: "The frost lady."
  • Revenge Myopia: She is the one who assaulted Yuu in the crime world underground, not the other way around, but when they meet again in the Flam Empire Royal antechamber, she comes at him in revenge for her humiliating loss.
  • The Stoic: She seldom lets her emotions show or determine her actions.

You want to kill me, fine! But leave Linda out of this!
Linda's father and current mob boss, now serving under Yu.

I should be able to crush this brat's head to a pulp with my bare hands! Why is he still okay?!
The rival mob boss backed by the Capella family to replace Snake and also a test subject for Jester Pollette's human-to-monster experiments.
  • Adaptational Badass: Although the end result is the same, in the manhua, he and Yu just get into a fist fight where the latter crushes his limbs with his bare hands and then slices him to ribbons with Hilfy when Tiger tries taking Linda hostage. In the newly released web-novel, when he goes One-Winged Angel, he takes off to the sky and comes back down again with the force of a meteor, landing on Yu's head, and rightfully panics when Yu no-sells that.
  • Bad Boss: Unlike Snake, who treats his men with respect, he treats his men like cannon fodder and speaks ill of them when they lose the fight.
  • Charles Atlas Super Power: His punches are supposedly able to behead people, and he can presumably crush skulls with his bare hands. He's shocked and confused that this doesn't work on Yu.
  • I Control My Minions Through...: Fear. All his mooks walk on eggshells around him, afraid he'd turn on and kill them for any insubordination or failure.
  • I Have Your Wife: Literally. He grabs Linda and announces to Yu that he has her as a hostage to negotiate his escape. This sends the drunk Yu into a dangerous Tranquil Fury where he swings Hilfy and uses the latter's wind magic to slice around Linda, reducing him to random chunks of bloody meat.
  • Might Makes Right: The creed by which he rose through the ranks in the criminal underworld.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: He's built like a mountain and is on-screen crushing stone the size of human heads with his bare hands.
  • One-Winged Angel: When he sees that nothing he does affects Yu in the slightest, he reveals that he's Jester's test subject by turning himself into a monster, with his skin turning grey, his body getting even taller, and muscles even bigger. A drunken Yu has to release one of his "keep me at the strength of a mortal" seals to counter it.
  • Super Toughness: He shrugs off being hit by just about everything, including Snake's Kunai, with his bare skin, until he goes to fight Yu and Yu turns this around on him.

Look, Snake, I'm going to shred your precious son-in-law to slabs of raw meat! Yu: Hic. Elsa won't like you. (Slices him in half)
One of Tiger's top men. He makes the mistake of grossly underestimating a drunken Yu and gets sliced in half by the latter without any effort, whatsoever.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: He charges at Yu head on and gets bisected at the waist for his troubles.
  • Hollywood Tactics: He's got wrist-mounted weapons and is going up against a man with a sword. So he announces himself and charges head first at him. Naturally, the swordsman with the longer reach wins the fight.
  • Informed Attribute: He's supposedly a top mob enforcer, unmatched in battle save for Tiger. He launches an attack at Yu only to be sliced in half by the latter with ridiculous ease.
  • Wolverine Claws: His favored weapons are long wrist mounted blades. Deconstructed as Yu easily outreaches him with Hilfy, getting himself sliced in half.


     Yuriel Lawrence
Lillith is in danger!
Lillith's husband and Elsa's father.
  • Badass Normal: He's not a demon, monster, angel, or apostle, just an ordinary human... in a group that makes a living fighting all of the above.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: He tries to erase Lillith's memory of him so she stops mourning him and moves on, hopefully to Yu. Problem is, Lillith is the one who taught him memory altering magic, so she knows how to counter it. She calls him out on this.
  • Birds of a Feather: He's every bit as much of a pervert as Yu, and the two of them bond over it.
  • In Love with the Mark: He was originally tasked with killing Lilith by his superiors. After repeated fights, with neither of them ever getting the upper hand, they fell in love, and he proposed marriage. He deceived his superiors, and Lilith posed as a human, eventually giving birth to little Elsa.
  • Last Request: Before he becomes Deader than Dead, he tasks Yu with giving Elsa his soul imprint as a final farewell gift.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: When Lilith is under attack by the dream demon queen, his soul fragment builds one of these to protect her consciousness.
  • Not Too Dead to Save the Day: Even being dead for over 10 years doesn't stop him from rescuing Lilith from the machinations of Lirim, the dream demon queen.
  • Post Humous Character: When he's introduced, he's long dead, and it's a fragment of his soul that speaks to Yu.
  • Secret Stab Wound: Which ultimately cost him his life.


I know you are a monster among apostles, Ulmann, but if you want to return to the human world, you'll have to kill me and destroy this world, BWAHAHAHAHA!
The 12th apostle and the reason the Demon race and the Humans are at war.
  • Kill All Humans: His policy, especially those humans protected by Olman, the 8th apostle, responsible for the torture and death of Somila, his beloved.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He fell in love with a human woman, Somila, but when a rival Apostle ratted him out, her fellow humans dubbed her a traitor, tortured her and set her ablaze at the stake, in the town square. Caspias retaliated by going to war and killing them all, every last one.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He knows the humans responsible for the death of his beloved Somilia are long dead, by old age if not by his hand, yet he still wants all humans dead in revenge for her death, despite the fact that Somilia was human herself. It doesn't help that the Apostle responsible for his rage continues to champion humans.
  • Vengeance Denied: The second apostle stopped his revenge 5000 years ago, leaving him with unresolved rage and hatred that he seeks to act out in the present.
