Heroine and main character of the game. A junior demon hunter who dreams of becoming the next Maiden of Light, but acts nothing like it.

In a bonus ending, she (accidentally) becomes a Demon Overlord by defeating so many demons in the Dark World that they unanimously elect her as their leader. In a strange twist of canon, this version of Priere has shown up as a cameo (and frequent Bonus Boss) in every Disgaea game since then. It is ultimately explained in the Updated Re-release, which elaborates upon the events that follow the original ending.

Tropes Associated with Priere:

Tropes associated with Overlord Priere:
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Many of the games allow for this. In the original Disgaea 2, Ragnarok hadn't been made yet, so Priere's dialogue was pretty evil, threatening to cover the world in an ocean of blood. In other games, she was friendlier, and then finally in Ragnarok, there is an ending in La Pucelle where she turns into an evil Demon Overlord, and an ending where she turns into a good Demon Overlord. In Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, she switched between the two and you could select whether she would have good or evil sounds in battle.
  • Amazon Brigade: Often turns up with a small group of female-only demons backing her in her cameo appearances.
  • Ascended Extra: Overlord Priere was just a joke in the original game.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People/Bad Powers, Good People: Her powers are directly channeled though the Goddess of Darkness. Whether she is good or evil depends on if she mastered herself or if she fails.
  • Blood Knight: Even with the appearances that tone down her evilness, she does seem a little more fight-happy as an Overlord.
  • Bonus Boss: Is often one in Disgaea games.
  • Boobs of Steel: Just like her normal form, but they're even more obvious now.
  • Creepy Child: Initially takes the form of one in Ragnarok — specifically, a younger Priere.

Priere's younger brother and the official Narrator. Tends to serve as Priere's voice of reason, to various degrees of success. Like his sister, he's also a junior demon hunter.

Priere and Culotte's teacher in Church. She arrived at the Church of the Holy Maiden much later then the two of them, but her miracles were so powerful that she shot up the ranks very quickly. Was found by Father Salade and has no memory of her past. She's actually the Maiden of Light, with her memories and most of her powers sealed away.

    Croix Raoul 

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki (Japanese), Quinton Flynn (English)
A freelance demon hunter who ends up working with the Church of the Holy Maiden. At one point, he worked for the Church of the Divine Mother, but quickly left them after he discovered that they were ran by demons. Like Alouette, he has no memory of his past. He's actually the Dark Prince, his powers and memories sealed away by Alouette fifty years ago.


Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani (Japanese), Amber Hood (English)
The Princess of Paprica, Priere and Culotte met her four years prior to the story, and have been good friends with her ever since. Unfortunately, due to ever-accumulating stress, a dark side of herself was unknowingly formed, which she was soon forced to confront.

  • Shock and Awe: Her specials are all lightning-based.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: This how Eclair thinks of her two halves, like two sisters of light and dark.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Develops due to the stress of training to be Queen and the Maiden of Light at such a young age.
  • They Do: She and Homard got engaged in the end.


Homard (Potemkin)

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese), Christopher Cook (English)
A Pirate who leads the Chocolat Gang. He's traveling around, hoping to meet the demon who crippled his father years ago. He's actually Cornet's Grandson, making him the Prince of Marl Kingdom. His carefree attitude causes friction with Eclair initially, but the two patch things up as the story continues.

    Father Salade 

Voiced by: Takashi Nagasaki (Japanese), Phil Proctor (English)
The Founder of the Church of the Holy Maiden, he's an experienced Demon Hunter. In fact, he was present when Alouette sealed Croix away fifty years ago, and since devoted his life to gathering support for Alouette when Croix's dark side appeared again. It appears that he was the one who taught Priere how to fight.



Voiced by: Nobuo Tobita (Japanese), James Horan (English)
A half-demon who formed the Church of the Divine Mother, and has over 70% of Paprica's faithful, more than enough to prove a threat to the Queen. Growing up, he was teased and bullied by both demons and humans, which led him to the creation of his own goals: to obtain Calamity's powers and create a world for himself by eliminating all humans and demons.

  • Bad Boss: He treats his enemies with more respect than his underlings, and actually kills some of them, not that they don't deserve it.
  • Big Bad
  • The Chessmaster: Plays all of the other characters so well that it takes nearly the entire game for anyone to do much more than inconvenience him slightly.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Tricks the Dark Prince and attempts to use him to take the powers of the Goddess of Darkness.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas
  • Eviler Than Thou: And you thought the Dark Prince would be the main villain of this story, didn't you?
  • The Evils of Free Will: Noir's basic motivation. First, he watched a bunch of angry townsfolk kill his mother because they could. Then he suffered at the hands of demons because they could. Finally, he realized that both humans and demons were the same: stuck-up, stubborn individuals with their own unique viewpoints and a lethal bone to pick with anyone that they think would ever disagree with them, which is in reality everybody, and the revelation drove him mad. Now he seeks to suppress individualism by killing everyone else.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Culotte imagined the head of the Church of the Divine Mother was scarier.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Half-Human Hybrid
  • High Priest
