    Miia's mom

Miia's mother, who claims to come only to visit, but intends to pursue her own agenda regarding Kimihito.

  • Bare Your Midriff: Much to Miia's embarrassment.
  • Batman Gambit: Knowing her daughter refuses to share Kimihoto with anyone, the only reason why she coerced Kimihoto into being the lamia representative in the tournament was to pressure them into hooking up. Naturally, it doesn’t work.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's a funny woman, and the methods used to drive her off are pretty silly. Doesn't change the fact that she plans to make Kimihito a Sex Slave for her tribe, and is willing to resort to abduction to do it.
  • Determinator: "Snakes are very stubborn you know! We never let our prey get away."
  • Exotic Extended Marriage: She's looking for a "communal husband" for her whole tribe.
  • Eyes Always Shut: When they're open, she looks more ominous.
  • Has a Type: While she has repeatedly tried to go after Kimihito, when Sanka, Shequa and Maru are talking about what sort of guy they'd want she chimes in with her own ideal. Namely if she were to settle on one man she'd want him to be full of enough "youthful vigor" to keep up with her tremendous sex drive, someone she could really "get serious" on.
  • Hypocrite: She promises Miia that she can have Kimihito to herself and won't have to take him back to be the communal husband. Only for Miia to catch her sneaking into his room, admitting that she wants him too. She reasons that because they're related she and Miia can share him and it will make no difference.
  • Innate Night Vision: Lamias can "see" heat using "pit vision," via an organ not dissimilar to real-world vipers.
  • I Want Grandkids: So much so that she verbally gives Kimihito permission to deflower her daughter.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Even more so than her daughter. Even after she agrees to let Miia try to have Kimihito for herself, she still tries to sneak into his room in the middle of the night for some nookie. When the group visit the Lamia village, Miia's mother and several gorgeous ladies blatantly try to seduce Kimihito, in front of Miia (though this was revealed to be at least partly an attempt by her to motivate Miia into taking Kimihito for herself once and for all).
  • Master Poisoner: "Lamias are skilled poisoners. I thought you knew." She has a broad array of them, from paralysis drugs to a poison that inflames lust in proportion to the recipient's initial disgust.
  • Mrs. Robinson: She does enjoy the prospect of having an affair with Kimihito.
    Don't worry about it Miia, he is basically my son in law already. Since you are getting married soon, it only makes sense for him to be my lover now, doesn't it?
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Kimihito was quite surprised when he saw her, even before she tried to seduce him right away.
  • Overly Long Tongue: And she uses it too.
  • Poor Communication Kills: She never bothered to check if Kimihito had ever had sex before using him as her tribes competitor for the stud contest. Assuming that he and Mia had done the deed already.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It goes past her waist.
  • Snake People: She's a lamia.
  • Thanks for the Mammaries: The first thing she does after saying hi is offer her hand toward Kimihito for a handshake... to grab his hand and rub it on her breasts, confirming from his resulting boner that he has a sex urge after all.
  • Unnamed Parent: We don't know her real name.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Cold, again, like her daughter.

    Papi's mom

Papi's mother, who shows up to retrieve her while trying to remind her daughter of something.

  • Dark-Skinned Blond: The result of a dark tan, hair bleach and heavy makeup.
  • Do You Want to Copulate?: Asks the bicycle cop if he wants to mate with her with a straight face. This wasn't a come on, it was actually a result of her poor grasp of Japanese. She was trying to ask if he was hitting on her as she turns out to not interested in anyone but her husband.
  • Dynamic Entry: Like Papi, her mom makes her first appearance landing on the safety rail on Kimihito's roof. Unlike Papi though, Papi's mom crushes the railing under her talons from the force of impact.
  • Gyaru Girl: Her look is clearly influenced by the "gyaru" or "ganguro" movements; she's extremely tan with long, blonde hair (which is the result of bleaching) and wears heavy makeup. Guess her husband has a thing for that.
  • Happily Married: Though harpies theoretically don't stay with the same guy, she is married to Papi's father, who is the one that influenced her to tanning and dyeing. Apparently the same free-spirited nature that created the tradition of loving and leaving men ensures that harpies who do find a guy they like just happily ignore it.
  • Harping on About Harpies: She's a harpy.
  • The Illegible: Her handwriting is basically unreadable. Justified in that, like Papi, the digits on her wings aren't nearly as dexterous as human hands and fingers.
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: As revealed in an omake, harpies (or at least the members of her and Papi's flock) all have the same natural appearance. She even blithely admits that she's not even sure that Papi is her actual daughter.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: As if Papi herself didn't look young enough.
  • Older Than She Looks: Bicycle Cop mistook her for another exchange student.
  • Perpetual Molt: Like her daughter.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Goes all the way down to her waist.
  • Unnamed Parent: Lampshaded, as Papi can't remember the names of her parents or Kimihito.
  • Winged Humanoid: She is a harpy after all...
  • You No Take Candle: Her skill at speaking Japanese is... rather lacking, and is the main cause for the chapter's misunderstanding. She didn't want Papi to go back to a husband she didn't remember, but rather wanted to get back the photo of herself and her husband that she'd accidentally mailed alongside her letter to Papi.

    Papi's dad 
See Police Chief in the Humans section.

    Centorea's mom

Cerea's mother, who shows up to see how her daughter is doing in fulfilling one of their "traditions."

  • Antiquated Linguistics: More prominent than her daughter's, which is reflected in the fan translation.
    Mom: Hark! Be there no one in this abode?! If thou refuse to open, state thy intention forthwith, insolent curs!
  • Expy: From the torso up, she looks like an extremely busty Karin de la Valliere.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She keeps one bang longer than the other.
  • Gag Boobs: Even bigger than her daughter's (though only slightly).
  • Interspecies Romance: She grew up with a young human boy her family wanted to use as a "teaser." He turns out to be Centorea's father, since the two of them knocked out and tricked the centaur stallion who was going to breed with her so that they could be together.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: After her jousting match with Centorea, she lets her hair down, and becomes far less strict.
  • Like Mother, Like Daughter: Unlike the other mother/daughter relationships introduced so far, Centorea clearly didn't fall far from the tree. Her mom seems to be a snapshot of the sort of person she'll be in a few years.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Once again, will we ever see an older-looking monster girl?
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: Apparently they have some weird mating traditions, reflecting real-world racehorse breeding practices. For one, generations of eugenics have resulted in dim-witted males that look like muscular barbarians with a side of Gonk and matching personalities, so they use various "teasers" the girls find more attractive to get them all riled up before mating. Understandably, most modern centaur girls aren't terribly thrilled by this, including Centorea and her mom.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She keeps her hair in a bun, to reflect her strict nature.
  • Proud Warrior Race Girl: She calls out Cerea for not following their traditions. Actually more sympathetic than it seems at first blush. She turns out to be using a clever plan to subvert those same traditions and bring about progressive change.
  • Red Baron: She's known as the "Goddess of Jousting".
  • Unnamed Parent: Pretty much a Running Gag at this point. Still, assuming centaurs follow European naming conventions she can reasonably be called "Mrs. Shianus."

    Mero's Mom

Mero's mother. Beware of spoilers.

  • The Caligula: She's very much unsuited to be in any position of authority, much less the queen of a nation.
  • Cool Chair: The royal wheelchair is a throne with tank-treads. She later buys Mero a motorized wheelchair of her own.
  • Disappointed in You: The queen is extremely disappointed that Mero has been "tainted" by happiness in the human world and "lost sight of tragedy".
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: When she's first shown, and whenever there's focus on her eyes. This stops when things go beyond her control.
  • Evil Matriarch: She has a very strong idea of what she thinks Mero should be, and doesn't particularly care whether or not it makes Mero happy.
  • Heel Realization: When it seems that Mero is actually going to die as a result of her schemes, she panics. It's implied that coming so close to actually experiencing a tragedy led her to the same realization Mero had figured out.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: She lied about the severity of the eloping problem and started the rumors about Octo in order to dispute the Inter-Species Exchange Act, purely for the sake of creating tragedy.
  • The High Queen: The beautiful, dignified, beloved queen of a mermaid kingdom. Juuuuust kidding! In actuality, she's batshit insane!
  • Hopeless with Tech: Her total incompetence with a smart phone very nearly gets Kimihito and Mero killed because she can't figure out how to disable all her death traps.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being seemingly ready to murder Kimihito in cold blood, almost getting her own daughter killed, and causing a serious political issue, all she has to do is publicly tell the truth about Octo and the Inter-Species Act to her people and faces no real punishment. She doesn't quite qualify for Easily Forgiven because she keeps her true role in the arc a secret from the public.
    • That last part might have been justified; as Rachnera said afterward, the merpeople might have revolted against her if the Queen revealed she was behind everything. Revolutions can be very, very bloody, as French history has shown.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Like every other mother introduced she too looks rather young for her age, though it's not as extreme as Miia or Papi's mothers.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Realizing that Meroune is willing to risk death for the chance of a happy ending seems to break through to her.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Much like her daughter. The queen however, is much less comedic about it, to the point of instigating a political schism for the sake of separating couples and nearly killing Kimihito just to create tragedy.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Practically Up to Eleven.
  • Sadistic Choice: She forces one on Mero. Either let Kimihito drown, or save him and be forced to come back to the Mermaid Kingdom and never see him again. It's unlikely she actually intended to go through with murder, but that's when her control over the situation breaks down.
  • Unnamed Parent: Although her last name might be inferred from her daughter.
  • Walking Spoiler: Good luck trying to say anything about her without revealing her motives.

    Mero's Dad 
Mero's father, a merman. Beware of spoilers.
  • Disappeared Dad: While still referred to as a king, he at present has eloped with a human woman to parts unknown.
  • The Ghost: While he's mildly important due to his position and his elopement being seen (wrongly) as a possible cause for the behavior of Mero's mother, he has yet to make a physical appearance. He went to Oct for advice at one point, and it's speculated that he went off with a human lover in part due to his wife cheating on him with a human herself.

    Wladislaus Drakulya

Curie's father.

  • Abusive Parents: In life, he treated Curie like absolute crap. In death, he's possessing her and forces her to attack others.
  • Classical Movie Vampire: He has a rather stereotypical look.
  • Cute Monster Boy: Well, "cute" might not be the right word, but he is the first non-monstrous male liminal seen in the series aside from a few background characters.
  • Demonic Possession: The reason for Curie's feral behavior is due to him possessing her until he's exorcised by Lala.
  • Fantastic Racism: He considers humans to be unworthy of becoming vampires, and believes the only thing they are good for is being food for vampires.
  • Hybrid Monster: He is one of these, and he's very interested in making more of them.
  • I Want Grandkids: This is one of the reasons why he possessed his daughter's body. Justified by the fact that the vampire race is dying out.
  • Killed Off for Real: Though he's technically already dead to begin with, Lala performing an exorcism on his daughter and sending him to the afterlife ultimately gets rid of him for good.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While his efforts ultimately amount to nothing and he's unceremoniously dispatched by Lala, he's still a creepy, outright malevolent character with absolutely no humorous moments: even as dark as the series got with Mero's mom around, there were still a few funny moments at her expense, she loves her daughter dearly and it's suggested she learned her lesson at the end. Wladislaus on the other hand glories in the terror vampires spread, is bigoted against humans, treats his daughter with disdain, possesses her and forces her to attack others. He's also the first character in the series to unambiguously die.
  • Oh, Crap!: He freaks out when Lala shows up and attacks him with her scythe. Justified, as Lala is a REAPER, one of the few beings that can remove his soul from the mortal world for good.
  • Posthumous Character: He's already dead by the time he's introduced.
  • Royal "We": He refers to himself with plural pronouns when he possesses Curie.
  • Winged Humanoid: Like his daughter.
