     Gildenor 
An island to the East that has made contact and alliances with Mapleheim. Only recently discovered, the Gildenor Elves have a rich history, but face the issues of famine, and must come to terms with making contact with the greater world for the good of its society.

Androcles Plato

Dom Frey

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Not only is he Gildenor's greatest general but he's also Gildenor's greatest warrior as well.
  • Captain Patriotic: A more traditional one. The only reason he isn't permanently on the frontline himself is because he knows his value in crafting Gildenor's strategies.
  • In-Series Nickname: Argance, the God of War
  • Four-Star Badass
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's looked up to as a hero in Gildenor and has shown himself to be quite reasonable in his dealings with others, even former enemies. That said, he doesn't pull any punches when it comes to defending his homeland.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His in-universe nickname, the 'God of War'. Unfortunately for the Trolls of Charybdis, they discover why he's considered the God of War just a little too late.
  • Reincarnation: Of the God of War.
  • War God

Felinda Garindela

Helenna Saitta

  • Ascended Extra: Became one after her one-off introduction, with Helenna becoming Felinda's handmaiden when she was seen again.
  • Grand Theft Me: Trades bodies with Felinda almost immediately after her introduction.
  • Psycho Supporter: Of Felinda.

Lysander Kolias

Tebrinda Eluvara

  • Easy Evangelism: What her speeches are to most of Gildenor's people. Justified in that she is not only pretty good at giving speeches but it's also implied she has a supernatural ability to sway her people.
  • Gunboat Diplomacy: She has a strong navy and she knows it.
  • The High Queen
  • Hot God: A serious competitor for being one of the most attractive Elves in all of Gildenor.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: Enjoys this as Gildenor's Queen, though it's heavily implied that Eluvara's magic powers contributed to this.
  • Informed Ability: She's introduced as princess of her nation and Gildenor's chief diplomat, so one would naturally expect her to be good at international negotiation, right? As it turns out, she's initially quite inept at navigating the murky waters of international relations, which leads to a few issues in the story. This is entirely justified, however, as Gildenor historically had no contact with other cultures so it'd stand to reason that even their best diplomats would be relatively clueless when it comes to dealing with other nations. Besides that, one can see why she was given the position to begin with: Beyond being the princess, she is genuinely unmatched when it comes to convincing her own people of something. Not only that but, as time goes on, she clearly learns from her past mistakes and slowly becomes better at international diplomacy too.
  • In-Series Nickname: The Goddess of Hope
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: As her country's monarch, she offers a different perspective on this than what's usually seen; instead of blindly following her country, she prioritizes it above absolutely everything else even when her allies have other aims entirely. If she thinks something will benefit Gildenor, there isn't much that'll stop her from doing it.
  • Past-Life Memories: Of Queen Eluvara.
  • Politically Active Princess: Played straight during her time as a princess, to the point that she was willing to even go so far as to get married so she could give Gildenor it's first international alliance and because such an achievement would increase the odds of her winning the throne.
  • Reincarnation: Of the Goddess of Hope.
  • Spare to the Throne: Played with. She's introduced as trying to actively compete with her brother for the throne but when her father and brother are suddenly killed, it's shown that she wasn't quite so eager for the throne after all.
  • White Magician Girl: She rarely uses magic but when she does she comes across as this. Her element is even Light too.
  • You Killed My Father: Almost gets revenge on Felinda, who killed Tebrinda's father. Unfortunately, she gets cheated out of her revenge by none other than Jiruga, who gives Felinda diplomatic immunity.

Doctor Benedict Raines

The estranged younger brother of the Gentleman, who grew up in his wealthy adopted family and became a Doctor. He ended up having a killing-streak in murdering violent Villa-Members, and became a fugitive, stowing away on a ship bound for Gildenor. He now finds himself in the middle of the island's political struggles, alongside Lysander and Androcles.

     Kalbaek 

     Kelis 

     Mapleheim 
An Elven nation in the Eastern Reaches, and a rising superpower that for years was controlled by the corrupt royal Traenwa family. Usurped by human mage, Jiruga Ishal, the Kingdom of Mapleheim swooped in to resolve the Mithril war, and now must deal with its own problems of a racial war with several factions competing for dominance.

Queen Celestine Traenwa

The Queen of Mapleheim, after Jiruga abandons the throne to resume his life in Varia. Despite her family's controversial history, Celestine has proved herself to be an efficient ruler and military tactician.

Princess Sorathelia Traenwa

A mysterious and snarky Elven woman whom the Gentleman rescued, similarly to Lillian. As it turns out, she's the older sister of Celestine, and thus a Princess of Mapleheim.

The Gentleman/The Earl of Tasidia

An assassin who uses "The Gentleman" as an alias, he is the adoptive father and mentor to Lillian, and was employed by Atropos up until its destruction. Upon returning from the Crimson Void, he became a royal butler to Princess Sorathelia, before ascending to the position of Earl of a region in Mapleheim called Tasidia with the Princess's influence. He flees with Sorathelia, Lillian, and Syl when Gallorum betrays them - to Varia, where Syl is killed and Lillian injured by Bridgette Zuviel. In Varia, he bides his time, planning his return to the war.

  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: His occasional arrogant behavior stems from his difficult childhood as a beggar and the need to be seen as a refined and highly-skilled gentleman.
  • Invisibility Cloak: His reward from the Manticore upon beating the Labyrinth is one of these.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One!: This exchange:
    Cierra: And your two companions here are your wife and daughter?

    Sorathelia: No. My husband would have stable employment, an ounce of logic, a well-paying job, a sense of humour, a distaste for tea, be an Elf, actually have a pair, preferably be of noble stock, have a hefty life insurance policy, be subtle, and have a sense of fashion. Sadly, this man before you has none of these traits.

    The Gentleman: No sense of fashion...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sora points out that he can be very condescending and inconsiderate, but he does truly care about others.
  • Knife Nut: Keeps several knives and daggers in his waistcoat.
  • "Leave Your Quest" Test: He's presented with this dilemma after leaving Mapleheim behind during the civil war; it's ambiguous if he plans to return or not.
  • Last-Name Basis: He'll refer to most people of Nobility in this fashion.
  • Long-Lost Relative: To Benedict.
  • Loss of Identity: Lapses into this regularly, unsure of whether or not he's truly Becoming the Mask that is the Gentleman or merely running from his troubles.
  • Master Swordsman: He is a master of Mapleheim's fighting style, Elfante, and is widely regarded out-of-game as one of the best combatants in the entire roleplay.
  • The Mentor: To Lillian, just as his Elven mentor was to him.
  • Mistaken for Gay: The Grand Vizier of Gallorum makes this assumption.
  • Moral Dilemma: He murders the wicked and corrupt, enjoying it, but still suffers great remorse, and is raising Lillian to do the same, unsure if it would be better to Give Her A Normal Life or carry on his legacy as an assassin.
  • No Name Given: He reveals his surname to be Raines, but the rest of his name is a close-guarded secret.
  • Not So Different: Points this out between himself and Sorathelia. Both had childhoods marked by strained sibling relations and make up for it by putting their families before themselves in the present, but both can also be incredibly selfish, arrogant, and irrationally spiteful.
  • Nice Guy: Incredibly polite and well-mannered, despite his occupation.
  • Nice Hat: Occasionally wears a top hat.
  • Nice to the Waiter: Polite to his servants, which induces some Fridge Brilliance considering he used to be one.
  • Officer and a Gentleman: During the civil war, he is both a nobleman and a General in Mapleheim's army.
  • Old-School Chivalry: A believer in this.
  • Orphanage of Fear: It wasn't really that bad, but the Gentleman's social anxiety and loss of his family ensured his stay wasn't pleasant.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: His great need and love for his makeshift family is derived from the early loss of his original one.
  • Pet the Dog: He has a lot of these moments to remind himself that he's more than a mindless killer.
  • Papa Wolf: Again, to Lillian.
  • Parental Substitute: To Lillian.
  • Professional Killer
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: While there's obviously no Britain, he is meant to invoke such an archetype.
  • Rags to Riches: From an orphaned beggar to a nobleman.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin
  • Revenge Before Reason: Wanted to avenge Atropos by killing Celestine, but it's subverted when he realizes it's irrational and dangerous, at least in the short-term.
  • The Rival: To Syl as an assassin.
  • Royal Rapier: His primary weapon.
  • Sad Clown: His lighter moments paint him as a whimsical snarker, but there's a lot of pain behind it all.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Occasionally.
  • Sole Survivor: Thinks himself this to Atropos, but he turns out to be off by just a bit, as both Cierra and Heng Sun survived.
  • Survivor Guilt: Regarding Atropos and Mapleheim's civil war.
  • Spell My Name with a "The"
  • Spot of Tea: Will constantly be found with a cup when he can manage it.
  • Stepford Smiler / Stepford Snarker
  • Swashbuckler: He could be seen as a Deconstruction of the archetype.
  • Sword Cane: Wields a rapier hidden inside his cane.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky
  • That Man Is Dead: Claims as much, about his past self, identifying only as "The Gentleman" but its clear that he hasn't entirely let go of his past yet.
  • Trapped in Another World: The Crimson Void was his only method to escape certain death by Celestine's battalion.
  • Unnamed Parent: Lillian doesn't know what to call him because of his anonymity, and settles on "Father."
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: A somewhat recurring trait.
    • His rescuing of Sorathelia eventually leads to the death of everyone in Atropos by association.
    • He leaves Haydn in charge of the Black Army while he tries to escape Mapleheim with Sora and Lillian, but Haydn winds up starting a forest fire that kills that same army and loses Mapleheim the battle.
  • Waistcoat of Style
  • "Well Done, Dad!" Guy: Seeks Lillian's approval of him just as much as she seeks his approval of her.
  • The Wise Prince: While he doesn't actually hold the title, Sorathelia pushes him into this role nonetheless during the civil war.

Lillian Raines

A teenaged Elven girl whose parents abandoned her when she was ill. She lost her memory from a toxic plant, and became a slave to a Lunacian Nobleman. Luckily, she was rescued by the Gentleman, and became his apprentice as an assassin, and surrogate daughter.

  • Ambiguous Innocence: Her personality is marked by childish naivety contrasted with cold precision as an assassin.
  • The Apprentice: To The Gentleman.
  • Badass and Child Duo: Sometimes with the Gentleman.
  • Black and White Morality: How she perceives the world. People are either Good, Bad, or potentially bad.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Completely averted. Despite being a teenager and being through a lot, she's kept her cool all the while.
  • Creepy Child: Shows subtle signs of this when in "assassin mode," analyzing situations and outcomes with stoic precision.
  • Daddy's Girl: Naturally.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • Happily Adopted: By the Gentleman, and to a somewhat lesser extent Sorathelia.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Subverted. Her owner was never truly cruel to her, but slavery wasn't paradise either.
  • Heartwarming Orphan
  • Identity Amnesia: Suffered this to an extent, forgetting her name. Fortunately, the Gentleman's name for her was coincidentally her original one as well.
  • Ill Girl: Was this before her enslavement, and her illness once again resurfaced with dire consequences.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Lillian is an Elf and is adopted by the human Gentleman.
  • Morality Pet: Serves as one to both of her adoptive parent figures, particularly Sora - Lillian being one of the few people she is unquestionably nice to.
  • Parental Abandonment: When she was ill, her parents disappeared to find a cure and never returned.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Occasionally, and particularly humorous as her adoptive parents are among the most sarcastic people in Asagorak.
  • Tagalong Kid: She's much older than a mere child, but she's certainly the youngest in a group of world-weary adults.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: She's always looking to impress her adoptive father, whether it's training or putting her skills to use.
  • You're Not My Father: Averted, as she's fully ready to accept the Gentleman as her father, perhaps more than he's ready to accept the role in full.

Haydn Surt

A human Enforcer for the Cifer Syndicate, who enters into an arrangement with the Gentleman, serving as something of a bodyguard. He briefly takes command of the Black Army during the Battle of Erlai during the civil war, but accidentally starts a fores fire - killing his own army and losing the battle for Mapleheim. He disappears after this and travels to Lunacia.

  • The Atoner: Becomes this after the Battle of Erlai.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: The disappearance and probable death of his daughter Esta was this for him.
  • The Lancer: His relationship with the Gentleman begins to take on shades of this, in the brief time they spent together.
  • My Greatest Failure: His accidental destruction of the Black Army (and other casualties he doesn't find out about) serves as this.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His reaction to his blunder during the Battle of Erlai.
  • Nice Guy: Nice enough, and relatively polite too, despite the hand he's been dealt.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He loses control of his magic and starts a forest fire which ultimately wipes out the Black Army he was left in charge of, losing Mapleheim the Battle of Erlai.
  • Parental Substitute: was this to his adopted daughter Esta, until she disappeared.
  • Patriotic Fervor: Despite being prejudiced against by the vast majority of Mapleheim, Haydn cares enough about the country to passionately fight for it during the war.
  • Playing with Fire: He's a fire magi.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Sorathelia and the Gentleman.
  • You Are in Command Now: Takes control of the Black Army to give the Gentleman a chance to escape with the royal family in preparation for Gallorum's inevitable attack. His command doesn't last long though.

Zane Detearant

An Elven war hero, whose loyalty to Mapleheim is unmatched. A fearsome warrior, he has ties to Syl Nielander and to the organization of Atropos.

Alister Demont

A mysterious man in service to Celestine, claiming to have solved the "problem of human trust," enchanting the royal guards to obey his every command.

Syl Nielander

Sister to Faeron Nielander, Syl is a cunning assassin who was in competition with the Gentleman for a spot in Atropos. She managed to escape the Gentleman's inquiry, but pops up again during Mapleheim's civil war. She escapes to Varia with him, Lillian, and Sorathelia - but is killed just outside the city by Bridgette Zuviel when she and Lillian try entering the city.

  • Anti-Hero / Anti-Villain: She's not nearly as remorseful as her counterpart the Gentleman about her occupation as an assassin, but she's far from outright evil about it, and is rather nice.
  • The Bus Came Back: Returns after a long absence in the story, attempting to frame the Gentleman for the Earl of Pork's murder; she fails, and is taken as her rival's personal prisoner.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Engages in a philosophical conversation with the Gentleman whilst stuck to a wall with her wrist bleeding.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Her entire hotel-room was a self-made death trap.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: She has poisonous acid thrown onto her face which melts her, is stabbed in her pregnant stomach, which kills her unborn child, and is ultimately finished off by being beheaded. Her death is by far the grisliest and most painful by anyone suffered "on-screen" yet.
  • Friendly Enemy: Has shades of this with the Gentleman; their motivations for participating in the war are largely the same.
  • Guile Hero
  • Hero of Another Story: Though we never get a chance to hear her tell all of it.
  • In the Blood: It appears the Nielanders have a knack for killing.
  • Killed Off for Real: She is ultimately beheaded by Bridgette Zuviel while trying to enter Varia.
  • Off with Her Head!: Bridgette finishes her off this way.
  • Playing Possum: She escapes as soon as the Gentleman leaves the room, having seemingly fainted from her wound.
  • Pregnant Badass: After the timeskip.
  • Professional Killer
  • Properly Paranoid: Had been camping out for at least a month waiting for her rival assassin to show up, and had plenty of traps laid when he finally did.
  • The Rival: To the Gentleman, as an assassin.
  • Trap Master: Her specialty.

An Agent of the Empire raised from birth to be a soldier for Valkyrania. He works closely with the nation's Reclamation Regiment (the RR) and the Royal Science and Research Division. He is the personal agent of the High Chancellor and is also enrolled in Varia's academy.

  • Anti-Villain: He works for a corrupt, racist nation and shares all of its ideals, but he still has a shred of humanity in him.
  • False Friend: To Elsa, who he has practically grown up with - but he considers her too weak to rule.
  • The Social Darwinist: He believes Elsa would be a poor ruler due to her physical weakness and idealism.
  • Stepford Smiler: He has a winning personality that hides a much darker one beneath it.
