The Ende Hotel

Voiced by: Mao Ichimichi

An agent for the Curia and Lilysse's best friend, later lover. Arnice is sent to Ruswal in order to investigate rumors about the return of the Night.

  • Action Girl: Arnice makes a living out of hunting fiends and a lot of them are either bigger or more powerful than her.
  • The Ageless: Being a half-demon, she doesn't age. She became a half-demon during the initial Blue Rain incident but still looks young enough to be mistaken for a high school student centuries later.
  • Always Save the Girl: She will always do what she can to save Lilysse no matter what. In the True Ending, Arnice succeeds.
  • Badass Armfold: Arnice in her ultimate Nightmare Form constantly does this.
  • Badass Fingersnap: Does this to a music player play music without her being near it.
  • Badass Lesbian: She's a fiend slayer capable of fighting against creatures that are either more powerful or bigger than her and come out on top. She's also in love with Lilysse and will go through hell and back to protect her.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Her loyalty and love to Lilysse persists due to how kindly Lilysse treated her.
  • Berserk Button: Arnice is usually calm for the most part but mess with Lilysse and you will incur her wrath.
  • BFS: Arnice's main weapon is this. She gains an even bigger sword during the game's final chapter.
  • Boobs of Steel: Can definitely kick a lot of ass and is well-stacked.
  • Bridal Carry: In the second game, she carries Alushe like this after their Combination Attack.
  • Broken Bird: Her past has made her cold and distant. It wasn't until meeting Lilysse that Arnice is able to enjoy life again.
  • Brutal Honesty: Downplayed. She makes it clear to Professor Alucard multiple times she will never be his research specimen nor research assistant, but she does it in a rather polite and dry tone.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Whenever she's in the Dream World, she becomes a lot more honest with her feelings than usual. This usually leads to her embarrassing herself.
  • Chick Magnet: According to Lilysse, more than a few females were interested in Arnice during their school days and she even attracts the attention of a few females within the time of the game's main story as well, namely some of her female Servans. Mistral even says that the more she talks to Arnice, the more difficult she finds it to let go of her.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ever since the Blue Rain incident, she was treated as nothing more than a science experiment by the Curia. The first person to ever treat her as a human being since becoming a half-demon was Lilysse herself.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mostly when she's dealing with either Alucard or Lloyd's shenanigans. Her snarky remarks are reserved for them and only them.
  • Did I Say That Out Loud: In the Dream World, she tells Dream Lilysse that she thinks Lilysse is beautiful. Arnice immediately has an embarrassed reaction while Dream Lilysse just giggles.
  • Dueling Player Characters: In the second game, she's a boss fight and is actually holding back a lot of her powers. The reason for her being an enemy in the second game is due to her Loss of Identity but Aluche manages to snap her out of it.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She doesn't like tomato juice. In fact, when Lloyd manages to trick her into drinking some, she gets pissed and calls Lloyd out on his dishonesty.
  • Drop the Hammer: One of Arnice's weapons. True to form, it deals a lot of damage but is incredibly slow.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Plenty of girls are definitely interested in Arnice, both in her backstory and in the present day of the story.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Zig-zagged. In the preview of Nights of Azure 2 she is shown wearing her original clothing, but it has a new color scheme.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Subverted. While Arnice is a boss fight in Nights of Azure 2, it's not due to her undergoing this but because of her going berserk due to her Loss of Identity thanks to the Moon Queen kidnapping Lilysse. She gets better after Aluche helps her by giving her a ring that Arnice gave to Lilysse some time in the past.
  • First Kiss: She has hers with Lilysse at the end of the game when she's trying to save Lilysse from the Nightlord's Blue Blood. Doubles as a Kiss of Life.
  • Fortune Teller: One of the daytime jobs she could do.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Her design and model has her wearing a pair of goggles on her head. She never uses them at any time during the game itself.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: When she gains her Nightlord Form in the postgame.
  • Grand Theft Me: Zig-zagged. While Arnice becomes the new Nightlord at the end of the game, she manages to retain a sense of self and her memories as shown in the True Ending when she saves and reunited with Lilysse.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Arnice was exposed to the Blue Blood some time prior to the main story. Instead of turning into a fiend, she was able to retain her human consciousness. Some demons she meets either display dislike or 'mixed' feelings for her in this regard.
  • Hero Does Public Service: During the daytime, she could do more extra work for money and items.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Her first weapon is a sword. Her final, ultimate weapon is an even BETTER sword.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Zig-zagged. She willingly absorbs the blue blood from Lilysse's body and becomes the new Nightlord. Luckily, she has managed to retained her sense of self in the True Ending, but time will tell what long term effects this might have.
  • Horror Hunger: As a half-demon, Arnice has literal bloodlust. It's especially bad for her since the blood of a Saint like Lily's is Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious for demons, so she's frequently tempted to drink it herself during their intimate moments.
  • I Owe You My Life: While Arnice has saved Lilysse's life on several occasions, she will always feel like she owes Lilysse her life because she is sure she would have died a long time ago if it weren't for her.
    • This is part of the reason why she joins Aluche in the second game: Aluche saves Arnice from her Loss of Identity. The other reason is that Arnice wants revenge against the Moon Queen for kidnapping Lilysse.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: She was treated this way by the Curia when she was first brought to them because of her half-demon status. Professor Alucard also refers to her as a "research subject" multiple times throughout the game. The first person to ever treat her like a human being after the Blue Rain incident was Lilysse.
  • Kirk Summation: Gives one to Ludegert by telling her that she doesn't have to carry the burden of the world alone because humans have to be able to carry their own weight.
  • Kiss of Life: Gives one to Lilysse at the end of the game in order to absorb the Blue Blood coursing through Lilysse's veins after she shielded Arnice from Ludegert's final attack. Doubles as their First Kiss as well.
  • Lady and Knight: Knight to Lilysse's Lady.
  • Legendary in the Sequel: As Aluche points out, she's become a legend in her game. Arnice is shocked upon hearing that.
  • Loss of Identity: This is one of Arnice's biggest fear, that in embracing her demon side, she will lose her human heart, which had happened to her before but she managed to regain it thanks to one precious memory. In the bonus ending, her fears become reality as she completely succumbs to the blood of the Nightlord and loses her humanity, and subsequently, her love for Lilysse. This is what actually happens to her in the second game but Aluche manages to snap her out of it by reminding her of Arnice and Lilysse's love for each other.
  • Love at First Sight: She fell in love with Lilysse when she first saw her while the latter was sleeping, made much more evident when the very first thing that Arnice commented on was Lilysse's beauty.
  • Mighty Glacier: Arnice's Armor Form. While in this transformation, she can take a lot of punishment and hit back with as much force but her speed goes down drastically.
  • Moon Rabbit: Arnice's Rabbit form. The Rabbit form upgrade skill is named the "Moon Dancer" and the achievement for using it is directly called "Moon Rabbit".
  • Multi-Melee Master: She's mostly skilled with swords, hammers, and twin daggers. Her one ranged weapon, the gun, isn't that great as it also drains some MP, more useful for her using her Limit Break.
  • Official Couple: Depending on her choices throughout the game, she can end up together with Lilysse. The Golden Ending (True Ending) shows them together. The sequel has Christophorus revealing that she and Lilysse did indeed become lovers but became separated due to the Moon Queen's machinations, making Arnice fall into despair. Near the end of the second game, she finds out in a letter written by Lilysse herself that she managed to escape from being the Moon Queen's captive and has gone into hiding, giving Arnice hope once again. The ending of the second game has Arnice and Christophorus going on a quest to search for Lilysse after the Moon Queen has been defeated.
  • One-Handed Zweihänder: Wields her sword with only one hand and swings with it though she'll use both hands to put more oomph in her swing with her heavy attacks.
  • Playing with Fire: Her demon form's primary weapon is chucking fire at her opponents.
  • Power Fist: The main weapon of her Armor form.
  • Previous Player-Character Cameo: She appears in Nights of Azure 2 as the Nightlord, and she engages in a duel with the current protagonists due to her going berserk after her Loss of Identity.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Due to Arnice turning into a half-demon during the initial Blue Blood rain back during the 11th century, she is actually over 800 years old.
  • Screw Destiny: Despite being told repeatedly that Lilysse has to be sacrificed in order to stop the Night's return, she adamantly refuses to believe so. This culminates with her fighting Ludegert and taking the Blue Blood for herself in order to prevent Lilysse from dying.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Gives one to Ludegert after the latter tried to manipulate Lilysse into sacrifice herself then follows it up with a Kirk Summation.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: She shows no interest in anyone who isn't Lilysse. Even in the sequel, she remains loyal to Lilysse even decades later and goes on a quest to search for Lilysse after she helps Aluche defeat the Moon Queen.
  • The Southpaw: Wields her weapons with her left hand.
  • Stripperiffic: The ceremonial garb that she wears whenever she's in the Dream World. Arnice herself is shocked and even asks the Maiden of Jorth just why she has to wear something so revealing.
  • Talk to the Fist: Her favored tactic whenever someone disrespects Lilysse in front of her or someone just outright pisses her off like Lloyd.
  • There Is Only One Bed: The room she has with Lilysse at the Ende Hotel only has one large bed that they share. Memory #30 reveals that the Curia actually demanded for Arnice and Lilysse to have separate rooms, but Simon couldn't bear to do that to them.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Lilysse's Girly Girl.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolates, which also helps quell her bloodlust.
  • Transformation Sequence: Downplayed in that there's no sequence but she can transform into four later five, post-game forms depending on the lead monster and its affinity.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Lilysse. She will do absolutely anything and everything in order to protect her beloved Lilysse.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: In this world, half-demons could quell their bloodlust by consuming another food item. For Arnice, it's chocolates.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Towards Lilysse. She does not tolerate anyone or anything harming or insulting her Lilysse and will quickly show the offending party the error of their ways.
    • The sequel has Arnice going on a rampage that lasts for years after the Moon Queen gets to Arnice by kidnapping Lilysse and lying about killing her, resulting in her Loss of Identity. She showed no signs of stopping until Aluche manages to snap her out of it.
  • Willfully Weak: During one of their last conversations, the Maiden of Jorth will take note that Arnice is still holding herself back from her maximum potential and asks her why. Choosing the answer that increases her relationship with Lilysse will reveal that she's aware that she could become more powerful by embracing her demon side, but fears that, in doing so, she'll lose Lilysse.


Voiced by: Hiromi Igarashi
Arnice's best friend, later lover, and the priestess selected to become the new Saint.
  • Anger Born of Worry: The few times that Lilysse gets angry is due to the fact that Arnice is doing something extremely risky for her sake again. In fact, it's due to this that she decides to accept becoming the next Saint just so she can finally do something for Arnice in return.

  • The Chosen One: She is chosen to be the next sacrifice.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts one for Arnice's sake, but Arnice does everything in her power to prevent that from being the case.

  • Kiss of Life: Given one by Arnice at the end of the game in order to prevent her from becoming a fiend.
  • Lady and Knight: Lady to Arnice's Knight.

  • Supernaturally Delicious and Nutritious: Being the Saint, demons find her especially delectable, which is why she gets kidnapped early in the game. This is an additional source of angst for Arnice since, being a half-demon, she also gets tempted to drink her blood when they're close.
  • Taking the Bullet: She shields Arnice from Ludegert's final attack. While it doesn't kill her, she becomes exposed to the Nightlord's Blue Blood and is under threat of becoming a fiend. Arnice ultimately saves her from this fate.

  • Deadpan Snarker: He has his moments. It mostly comes out whenever he's dealing with either Lloyd or Professor Alucard.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Definitely. His support for Arnice and Lilysse never wavers. It even goes as far as him not being able to follow the Curia's orders of putting Arnice and Lilysse in separate rooms because he couldn't bring himself to do so after seeing the two of them together.
  • Nice Guy: Polite and well-mannered, he always treats Arnice and Lilysse with respect.
    • It's revealed in a memory that can be collected in-game that Simon was ordered by the Curia to put Arnice and Lilysse in separate bedrooms. However, he couldn't bring himself to do so and defies the Curia's orders in order to let Arnice and Lilysse be together.

  • Karma Houdini: Subverted. One of the girls that he seduced realized that Lloyd was simply using her for her wealth and hid a rare jewel in a tree somewhere in Ruswal. Said tree also happens to be guarded by a Steel Hellion fiend but Lloyd, being the shrewd guy that he is, tasks Arnice with retrieving the jewel. Arnice kills the fiend and Lloyd gets the jewel.

  • The Gadfly: She takes some pleasure in teasing Arnice in a good-natured way. She even calls Arnice an idiot for some of the things she says in the Dream World in a teasing manner.

    Dream Lilysse 
Voiced by: Hiromi Igarashi
A mysterious being that also takes on Lilysse's appearance. As it turns out, she represents the real Lilysse's repressed feelings in order for the real Lilysse to easier accept her role as the new Saint.
  • Beautiful Dreamer: Dream Lilysse is Lilysse herself (technically, a part of Lilysse's heart that she locked away) so she definitely counts.

  • Please Don't Leave Me: Her greatest fear is revealed to be this just before she disappears from the Dream World for good: Arnice going away again.


Pureblooded Demons

Voiced by: Tomoyo Kurosawa

A mysterious pureblooded demon whom Arnice meets early on. Her past is a mystery even to herself and she has made it her personal mission to find out what happened in Ruswal.

  • Back from the Dead: Arnice accidentally kills her during their fight but Christophorus shows up alive and well soon after the fight, revealing that pureblooded demons have the ability to resurrect themselves.
  • Bonus Boss: Technically, beating her isn't required to finish the game. However, it is required to defeat her in order to view the Golden Ending.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She's a full-blooded demon, sure, but she's still adorable. Just don't get on her bad side.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It's revealed that she's one of the demons that lived peacefully with other humans in Ruswal years prior to the story. In particular, she was close to her master, Chris, and she enjoyed the music that he wrote. However, the Curia found out about the peaceful coexistence between humans and demons in Ruswal and ordered their agents to burn the place down. This resulted in the deaths of not just Christophorus' master but also other humans and demons. She doesn't take it well when she remembers this fact and she attacks Arnice in a rage for supporting the Curia.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She doesn't remember anything from her past and she makes it her personal mission to uncover it. Turns out that the reason for this is that pureblooded demons, unlike fiends, can revive themselves given enough time but if done too much, it can lead to memory loss.
  • Musical Assassin: Her main form of combat is by using musical instruments to either bludgeon her opponent with or to fire laser beams at.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite being a pureblooded demon, she's shown to have a love for shopping. In one random event, Arnice can encounter her window shopping and she gushes about the items inside. Arnice even notes how Chris is acting just like a normal girl during that moment.
  • Shipper on Deck: She's one for Arnice and Lilysse. She even outright says that the two of them are in love with each other, which neither Arnice nor Lilysse denies.
    • In the sequel, even decades after the events of the first game, she's still this for Arnice and Lilysse. In fact, Christophorus' plan to snap Arnice out of her Loss of Identity is to find a reminder of Arnice and Lilysse's love for each other. In this case, finding a ring that Arnice gave to Lilysse back then. Chris also tells Aluche about Arnice and Lilysse's relationship with a mixed tone of fondness and sadness. Lastly, she joins Arnice in her quest to find Lilysse during the game's conclusion after the Moon Queen is defeated.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Christophorus or Christforoth? The game itself uses the former but the trophy system uses the latter spelling.
  • Split Personality: She switches between a childlike and playful personality, and a serious and somber personality, on the fly. This continues in the sequel as well.
  • Sweet Tooth: The sequel reveals she has a huge one, especially when it comes to Eleanor's chocolates.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: While she wasn't evil to begin with, she is a clear ally to the protagonists in the sequel compared to her affiliation being more ambiguous. She even refers to Aluche as 'my friend'.

Voiced by: Eriko Matsui
A pureblooded demon with a serpentine appearance that resides at the Shrine of Sorrow. She only appears after clearing the game for the first time.
  • Affably Evil: Well, "evil" might be a stretch but after the fight against her, she realizes her mistake in attacking Arnice when the latter says that she's not there for a fight and apologizes. She even offers Arnice tea.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: During one of their tea sessions, Mistral asks Arnice if the latter ever considered of turning into a pure demon. Since Arnice is so respectful of pureblooded demons, she notes that the Blue Blood can't hate her.

  • Cute Monster Girl

  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: A four-armed snake demon, and easily one of the strongest enemies Arnice will face in the game.
  • Pet the Dog: Normally, demons prey on humans. However, she instead saves an infant from dying after said infant's mother was killed by fiends. She chalks this up to her "maternal instincts."
  • Poisonous Person: She's fond of inflicting the poison status effect on both Arnice and her Servans during the fight against her.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Not herself but the Dinosword fiends that she summons.
  • Shipper on Deck: In her own way. She takes Arnice's answer of not wanting to turn into a demon in stride because, as Mistral notes, "[Arnice] has someone that she has to protect."

    The Nightlord 
The king of the demons and the one responsible for the Night. He is the most powerful demon to ever live and is the Big Bad of the game.
  • Big Bad: Actually a subversion as he's already been drained of all his power by the time the events of the game happen. The original Nightlord
  • Dark Is Not Evil: According to Ludegert, the Nightlord was someone that "[accepted] everything as it is" and had no plans of spreading the Night to begin with. In addition, he even views Arnice as a daughter because he views all beings exposed to his Blue Blood as his children.
  • The Power of Love: In one of the endings, he says that he will leave the world alone out of respect for Arnice's and Lilysse's relationship.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are pure red. However, also a subversion because of the Nightlord not being evil.

The Curia

    The Pope 
The leader of the Curia and the one who gave Arnice the mission to go to Ruswal in order to investigate the rumors of the Night's return. She is actually Ludegert, the legendary First Saint that was said to have vanquished the Nightlord at the cost of her own life centuries prior to the main story.
  • Big Bad: She is the true cause for the Night because she is the current Nightlord, a title that she gained after she betrayed the original Nightlord.
  • Body Surf: The main reason as to why she's still alive is this. It also allows her to maintain her control over the Blue Blood coursing through her veins.
  • Dark Action Girl: More than capable of fighting Arnice on even terms.
  • Final Boss: She's the final enemy that is needed to be defeated in order to view any of the game's endings.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings
  • Heroic Sacrifice: This is what was thought she did 800 years prior to the events of the story. Turns out to not be the case.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She tries to convince Lilysse to sacrifice herself by saying that doing so will prevent other children from experiencing what Arnice went through. Arnice immediately tells Ludegert to shut up.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She is actually centuries old considering the conflict between her and the original Nightlord happened 800 years prior to the Ruswal incident. She is able to maintain her youthful appearance by body surfing through other Saint candidates.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The game spells her name as "Ludegert" but the PS4's trophy system has her name as "Roodgate."
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She's ultimately this. The reason why she became the Nightlord is because she wants humanity to be united against a common enemy in order to prevent them from killing each other over differences in beliefs and ideologies. However, the Blue Blood that she absorbed from the original Nightlord can only be kept in check by sacrificing Saints once every ten years.

Voiced by: Ayane Sakura
A knight under the employ of the Curia. She is sent to Ruswal in order to test Arnice but there is more to her than meets the eye.

  • Dark Action Girl: She kidnaps Lilysse and she turns into a fiend after she loses control over the Blue Blood in her veins.
  • I Have Your Wife: Not that Arnice knew at the time but Corrine kidnaps Lilysse in order to force Arnice to fight her.
  • My Greatest Failure: Corrine's is not being able to protect the Saint that she was charged with. This is what leads her to kidnap Lilysse later on in the game in order to test Arnice's resolve.
  • Taken for Granite: After losing to Arnice and giving her last words, she turns to stone.
  • Take Up My Sword: In a way, her final words to Arnice is this trope. Considering Corrine feels immense guilt for not being able to protect her own Saint years prior, she tells Arnice to protect Lilysse with every fiber of her being.
  • Teleport Spam: Corrine can do this during the fight against her. She will disappear and then teleport to another part of the map in order to catch Arnice off guard.


How well does it match the trope?
