Princess Micaiah

"What will I ever do without you, Lenine?"

The owner of a grand mansion, a graceful young lady with psychic powers who created a safe haven for people after the world has been overrun by "Things". All the people in the castle recognise her as their saviour.


"Princess can you not."

Princess Micaiah's personal attendant, a serious young man who contrasts her aloof, floaty attitude. While he can be deadpan at times, he very much values Micaiah and is extremely loyal to her.

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Has a (downplayed) moment of this in one of his flashbacks involving Euphy. When she expresses pity for him because he's an orphan, his response is that it feels a bit like an insult.
  • Servile Snarker: Albeit far more snarky to the other servants than he is to the Princess, but he still has elements of this.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: When Micaiah goes into his room in Chapter 2 and reads one of his journal entries, he directly refers to the incompetence of the other castle servants as the reason he's Micaiah's right-hand man. Her amused reaction implies that she agrees, of course.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: While he isn't particularly dangerous, if you ever threaten Micaiah, he will swear to end you.
  • Waistcoat of Style: Wears a cool black waistcoat.

Mika Himeya

"I wish the Devil himself will just take over this world."
(CG Art)

Mika is a young girl who has been captured by the Corrupt Church for her powers. Because of it, she has become very resentful and bitter.

  • Ax-Crazy: Officially this as of Chapter 3. If it weren't for the divine punishment fiasco, she would have become a mass murderer by now.
    • Mika might have commited murder, but she did so in self-defense against someone who was strangling her, so whether or not she qualifies as being genuinely Ax-Crazy is still a bit speculative.
  • Break the Cutie: Leading to...
  • Broken Ace: Somewhat. She was regarded by the other members of her village as the Goddess incarnate because she could use her magic powers to heal villagers. She only became broken after the villagers discovered she wasn't as much of an Ace as they thought.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: At least, in the past, before she got kidnapped by the Church. She used to wear pink and purple, her name means "truthful flower", she has healing powers, loves Dynasty, and is a borderline Yamato Nadeshiko.
  • Playing with Fire: She sets things on fire quite frequently in Chapter 3, including two books, two doors, and an entire corridor.
  • Precocious Crush: Has one on Dynasty.
  • Why Did You Make Me Hit You?: Her first response to killing Tamora.
    • Take into account that Tamora had tried to KILL Mika, so this is not a completely unreasonable reaction.
  • Yandere: For Dynasty.
    • Note that there is a certain degree of speculation on this one: Tamora was certainly trying to take Dynasty away from Mika, but the whole murder fiasco only ocurred because Tamora was STRANGLING Mika. Whether or not she would actually have resorted to violence if Tamora hadn't made an attempt on her life is dubious at best.


    Main Characters 



Rothwell (Mysterious Boy)

  • Cheerful Child: At least, before his father was brutally murdered.
  • Blinding Bangs: His eyes are not shown.
  • Break the Cutie: The Church killing his father led him to become lost and depressed.
  • Last-Name Basis: Only his last name (Rothwell) is known as of yet. This has led to speculation that he is actually a younger Lenine, and that his full name is Lenine Rothwell.

    Side Characters 

Dynasty "Dai"

Priestess Tamora Salvador

  • Asshole Victim: While she didn't necessarily deserve to die, she was terrible to everyone she speaks to, allegedly poisoned Dai and ruined his reputation, and tried to strangle Mika. It's also not impossible that the plague that hit the village was somehow engineered by her. If true, that would mean that she sacrificed many innocent people just so that Dynasty wouldn't believe in Mika's divine gift anymore amd stopped liking the girl. It's hard to feel sorry for her.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl
  • My Beloved Smother: She seems to be one to her son, Castor, where she makes him follow her whims.
  • Stuffed into the Fridge: She seems to be this to Cardinal Salvador, who captured Mika as a result of his wife's murder.
  • Yandere: Depending on how you interpret her actions, but she does skirt dangerously close to one.

Castor Salvador

Tamora's teenage son, who appears as an adult in the introduction sequence, supervising an execution.


  • Badass in a Nice Suit: She is the only character to wear a suit, and she takes no nonsense from anyone, not even Castor.

Euphony "Euphy"

A little girl whom a young Lenine once helped get home. They became fast friends after. Euphy is five years younger than Lenine.

    The Church 


"But the Messiah does exist. The son of the Goddess - the real one, that is..."

A mysterious cloaked figure who enters the castle one day, who claims to be the Messiah.

Salvador (The Cardinal)

The leader of the Church who held Mika captive.

Alchemist de Lancastre

A mysterious woman who appears to be the Cardinal's right-hand woman. She is revealed as of Chapter 3 to be the one who created the concept of the 'divine punishment'.
