Mystery of Joyville

    The Puppet Master
Return to Joyville and Destiny Undone 

  • The Cameo: An alternate version of him appears in "The Price of Immortality".
  • No Name Given: His real name is never revealed at all.

Soul of Innocent 
Lost Town and Return to Joyville 
Return to Joyville(Bonus Game) 
Destiny Undone 

The daughter of the Puppet Master and the major antagonist of the first three games. Felicia was once a normal kind girl until she suffered grave injury from the fire that broke out at the theater, turning her into a psychopath who forced her father to transfer people's souls into puppets (and destroyed them) for her own amusement. After her father's death, she went into hiding and eventually resurfaced in her scheme to siphon children's souls to restore her beauty, and her attempt to switch body with Suzy which both were foiled by the Detective. Following her defeats, she took the Detective back in time and begged him to save her past and current self.

In an alternate universe of Destiny Undone, the little Felicia requested the Detective to find her missing father who was kidnapped by Cricks.—-

  • Grand Theft Me: Her goal in Lost Town is to swap her body with Suzy's in order to regain her youth and innocence.

Return to Joyville

One of the puppet masters back when Joyville was a prosperous town and a friend of Felicia's father. However, after he went blind from working with varnish and subsequent rejection from Ornella, Cricks blew up the theater which killed himself and everyone inside and gravely injured Felicia, who was inside on that day, in the process.

In an alternate universe of Destiny Undone, he instead sought revenge on the Puppet Master for being the cause of his blindness.

  • Remember the New Guy?: Appears in "Return to Joyville", but was never mentioned in the previous games. Justified in that he died prior to "Mystery of Joyville".
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Prior to his Face–Heel Turn, Cricks was a man who wanted to create beautiful puppets and to make people happy. After he went blind, everything traces of goodness within him were lost.
  • We Used to Be Friends: While the original Joyville Timeline Cricks still has some respect for the Puppet Master, the Destiny Undone Cricks truly resents him for being the cause of him going blind in the first place, even though it's entirely his own fault.

An actress at the same theater that Cricks performed. She was killed in the original timeline after turning down his courtship.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Refusing Crick's hand is what caused Felicia to obtain her scars and cause the events of the first four games.

Destiny Undone

    Gabriella Rossi
An acquaintance of the Puppet Master and a prime suspect of the case.
  • Disposable Woman: She is killed offscreen by Krick.
  • Red Herring: Because of her suspicious behaviors, the detective believed her to be the culprit behind the kidnapping at first. While she did quarrel with the master, she did not kidnap him and only went back to his house to find her missing purse.

Lightning Strike

A young orphan boy who is friends with Shanta, and allies himself with the detective. At the end of the bonus chapter, he joins the detective on another adventure.

A seeress who aids the protagonist in his quest to rescue the three kidnapped women and stop Alessandros. She is the owner of the Magic Puppet, an artifact capable of turning humans into puppets and vice versa, which was stolen by Alessandros prior to the story.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She makes no appearance in the bonus chapter, even though she has her puppet back (and the puppet is now in Arsen's hands). It is assumed she was killed when Froissart raided the gypsy camp.

    Nightingale, Adel, and Leah
Three young women who were kidnapped by Alessandros as part of his plan to revive Marianna. Nightingale is the most popular singer at Moulin Rouge, Adel is a heiress, and Leah is a nun.
  • Blonde Brunette Red Head: With Adel as blonde, Leah as a brunette, and Nightingale as redhead.
  • Daddy's Girl: Adel loves her father. When Marianna has her heart, she unkowingly kills him.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Deconstructed. While these girls are pure of heart, their hearts are focused on different things. Nightingale is in love with the theater, Adel is a sweet girl who loves her father, and Leah is happy with her piano. Thus when these loves were transferred to Marianna, she went crazy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Nightingale is presumably her stage name.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Adel is a rich but kind-hearted woman and is well loved by everyone.


A mysterious gypsy who can animate objects into monsters which he uses to obstruct the protagonist on his quest to rescue the kidnapped women.

  • Anti-Villain: Type II. All that he wants is to see the love of his life be alive again, but realizes that what he's done is absolutely abominable and thus gives up his life to let her live.
  • Heel Realization: In the bonus chapter, he realizes that using other women to revive Marianna is wrong. Thus he gives up his own heart—due to being turned into a puppet by the detective—to let Marianna live.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Ends up being turned into a puppet when the detective deflects the spell with a mirror.

Click here see Marianna in her human form 
A mysterious puppet who resembles the three kidnapped women that wrecks havoc upon the city of Paris, killing many innocent people. She is the true love of Alessandros, who, after her untimely death, turned her into puppet in his attempt to find a perfect heart to revive her.

Marianna's younger brother who was adopted by Froissert after a fire burnt down their home and killed their parents. However, Froissert treated him like a slave and he wants to escape and be with his sister and Alessandros.
  • Big Brother Worship: Judging from his drawing, Arsen clearly adores Alessandros like his older brother.
  • Walking Spoiler: His existence is pretty much a spoiler for the game's backstory.

The Face of Humanity

    David and Hannah 

  • Married to the Job: As much as they love each other, they're too busy with their jobs to have time to their improve relationship or have children, which was why they created Eva to be their daughter.
  • Love at First Sight: It's implied that Hannah fell in love with David when he was chasing after insects while displaying his dorkiness.
