Title: The Princess Knight of the Rebellion

"For my sisters-in-arms on this sword I vow. I will throw down the queen, and bring peace to this world."

Leader of the "Rebellion Army" and a knight with a strong sense of justice, driven out of concern for her homeland, currently being devastated by war, joining her younger sisters-in-law in the process. Like Leina, she is a noble's daughter — in her case, the Margrave Kreuz, though for some reason was raised as a boy. Despite her clumsiness, she has a certain level of charisma that inspires undying loyalty to her.


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: She later finds out she's half-human half-demon.
  • The Berserker: When she's using her Super-Powered Evil Side, she loses control of herself and just attacks everyone around her indiscriminately.
  • But Now I Must Go: In the Illustrated Stories, after defeating The Swamp Witch for good, she decides to go wandering around the world, possibly for training for the next Queen's Blade tournament now that the tournament will be reinstated once again.
  • Cain and Abel: Abel to Aldra's Past Self, but not so much in the present.
  • Character Development: She learns that she doesn't have to fight alone and that she needs to thrust that her companions will be able to face for their own reasons, without her having to protect everyone on her own.
  • Combat Stilettos: She goes to the battlefield wearing some pretty elegant high heels.
  • Cool Horse: Ambrosius, a horse from the underworld, with whom she fights her enemies.
  • Foreshadowing: There's a lot of mysterious stuff that happens around Annelotte that gives some clues about her origins: Her horse, the fact that her parents are not the real ones, her almost superhuman skills and the fact her powers goes haywire many times and Aldra is the only one who can stop her without fighting, hinting their relationship as sisters later on.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Like Aldra, she is the daughter of a demon and a human.
  • Insistent Terminology: Hates to be addressed as "Big Brother" (Onii-chan) by Huit and prefers to be addressed as "Big Sister" (Onee-sama).
  • Ironic Name: Her last name, Kreuz, means "Cross" in German. And she's half-demon like her sister Aldra.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Fills the Gender Flip role perfectly, being a chivalrous hero who leads a rebellion against a tyrant.
  • The Leader: Charismatic type for the Rebellion Army. All her sisters-in-arms gathered around her out of respect for her skills, determination to take down the tyrannical queen, and heroic character.
  • A Mother to Her Men: Cares deeply for her sisters-in-arms and tries her best to be the leader they expect her to be.
  • Onee-sama: Her followers normally address her as a such, including people like Sigui, who is older than Annelotte!
  • One of the Boys: Due to being Raised as the Opposite Gender, she has many habits and personality traits usually seem as masculine.
  • Only One Name: One of the few characters in the series to avert this. Her full name is Annelotte Kreuz, and unlike Leina, she doesn't have qualms to call herself as such when the need arises.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: She was raised as a boy, but she is too obviously feminine to convincingly pull this off, even when she's dressing in civilian clothes, at least for the viewers. In-universe, many people, like Huit, address her as a male and even Luna-Luna gropes her in order to check.
  • Punny Name: Her name is a pun with the demon Astaroth, the Crowned Prince of Hell, a very fitting name, since her real mother is the ruler of the Netherworld. Also, the first four letters of her name, Anne, sounds the same as the Japanese word ane (姉) who is translated as elder sister, reflecting her role as the Onee-sama.
    • Her name also sounds similar to Sir Lancelot, one of the many prototypes of medieval chilvalry.
  • Raised as the Opposite Gender: Her parents hid her real gender and presented her to the world as the heir to the Margrave Kreuz, "Alphonse".
  • Shout-Out: In QB Rebellion's animated adaptation, during episode 10, when using her Super-Powered Evil Side, she creates a cross-shaped energy burst similar to the ones that appears in Neon Genesis Evangelion used by the Angels and EVAs alike.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": For some reason, the English dub pronounce her name as "Annalotte".
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Like Aldra, she's half-demon, and during a duel with Elina in the Illustrated Stories, her evil side suddenly goes on a rampage and kills everyone in sight, forcing Elina to retreat barely alive. Only Huit's Cooldown Hug stopped her. The same scene happens in the anime series, but happens when Annelotte fights against Mirim when trying to destroy her armor's Magic Stones, and Huit is unable to stop her.
  • Training from Hell: From both Alleyne in the first QB Rebellion's OVA and later Tomoe in the Illustrated Stories.
  • Walking the Earth: At the end of Rebellion, she decides to do that after finishing rebuilding the Margraviate territory to train for the next Queen’s Blade.
  • You Cannot Fight Fate: At the last narrative arc of Rebellion's Illustrated Stories, she's unable to get her revenge on Claudette because of this.

Huit

Voiced by: Minori Chihara (Japanese), Zoe Martin (English)
Artist: Koume Keito
Title: The Alchemist-Strategist

"Big brother, Huit will show you her strategies!"

Daughter of the "Great Alchemist" Cyan, a good friend of Cattleya, and a younger sister-in-law of Annelotte, whom she calls "big brother" (much to the latter's annoyance). Spoiled she may be, due to Annelotte's influence, she is also rather gentle and a competent tactician within the "Rebellion Army" who can fight with the automaton Vingt.


  • The Chessmaster: Serves as the tactician of the Rebellion Army, and repeatedly proves to be a perfect fit for the job.
  • Child Prodigy: Described as having "the mind of a genius at a young age". It should be noted that, like most characters in the series, Huit suffers from Vague Age.
  • Faux Action Girl: Sort of, since she's not a fighter, and relies on Vingt for attacking.
  • Hime Cut: Goes along with her elegant and composed nature.
  • Insistent Terminology: She loves to address Annelotte as "Big Brother" (Onii-chan) much for Annelotte's chagrin.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Her role in QB Rebellion's animated adaptation.
  • The Kid with the Remote Control: She controls Vingt with a alchemy-based remote control.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother Cyan dissapeared after her village was destroyed by the Swamp Witch's Army. This was one of the reason she joins Annelotte in her rebellion. Averted in the anime, where her mother is not mentioned anywhere and her reasons for sticking up with Annelotte are entirely personal.
  • Our Elves Are Different: She's a Little Elf, hence her height.
  • Punny Name: Her name, combined with Vignt's, spells "28" in French, a reference to the original name of Gigantor, Tetsujin 28-go.
  • Vague Age: While this is not surprising, as she's not the only one dealing with this, the Illustrated Stories' continuity implies she's more or less a bit younger than Annelotte, but she's still an adult. On the other hand, in the manga adaptation of Rebellion, Annelotte considers her as a child and she worries about her due to this. This is played a bit in the Rebellion Zero manga, as she poses as a kid to Sigui, so she doesn't try to kill her for being an alchemist.

Vingt

Voiced by: Yukiko Takaguchi (Japanese), Jessica Paquet (English)
Artist: Koume Keito
Title: The Alchemic Iron Woman

"V,V,V, Gao—n!"

An elven automaton reputedly built by Huit's mother, who also serves as Huit's playmate, bodyguard and companion. She is a wind-up automaton, but with a fairly long lifespan once wound up. She always acts under the orders written in the "remote control" unit Huit carries, written in an arcane runic script.



Luna-Luna

Voiced by: Harumi Sakurai (Japanese), Evelyn Lantto (English)
Artist: F.S.
Title: The Moon Dancer

"Hehe. I'll enjoy being on top of you!"

The strongest warrior of the Calibara tribe located in the southern jungles and the guardian of its historic ruins where the "Great Power" is held. She has two different personalities and her skin color changes with them. When she is in her innocent, fair-skinned form, she is known as the "Sun Dancer". When she is in her flirtatious, dark-skinned form, she is known as the "Moon Dancer".


  • Ambiguously Brown: Played with: She can switch from having a lighter skin color to darker one when she's excited or when she's fighting.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Don't be fooled by her looks: She can switch from being a slutty princess to a really damn scary warrior in a second.
  • Bi the Way: She initially thought Annelotte was a man and was really excited at the prospect of bearing "his" child. Discovering she was female was a shock, but after recovering from it she went right back to trying to bed her.
  • Combat Tentacles: She use those tentacles from her bracelets and her back as weapons... and also as ropes, too.

  • Color-Coded Eyes: She has green eyes. Such eye color is very fitting for an alluring but powerful Jungle Princess.
  • Crotch-Grab Sex Check: She used this on Annelotte, as she wanted to know if she was really a woman or a guy the first time she met her in the animated adaptation.
  • Fanservice Pack: Played With. Changing from the "Sun Dancer" to the "Moon Dancer" changes the pigmentation of her skin, but her body shape remains the same. However, the Moon Dancer has a much more flirtatious, Fanservice friendly personality.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: The Sun Dancer, who seems to forget that she is wearing a very revealing outfit pretty often when interacting with people. The Moon Dancer is anything but innocent.
  • Jungle Princess: Technically her position in her village is closer to that of a priestess rather than a princess, but she otherwise fits this trope perfectly.
  • Shout-Out: Her fighting style resembles a lot the one used by Lucy.
  • Stripperiffic: She even tops Menace as the most stripperific character of this series.
  • Underboobs: Frankly, her body is so exposed that not getting to see the lower side of her breast would be weird.
  • Witch Doctor: Especially in the anime, when she almost pulls an Heroic Sacrifice to help Mirim's family to raise their harvest by using her vital energy. Luckily, she gets better after receiving the moonlight rays.

Izumi

Artist: Kuchuu Yousai
Title: The Samurai of the War God

"W, What, isn't it you who is walking in front of me on your own~!"

A samurai from Hinomoto who is a user of the self-proclaimed "War God Fencing Style". In reality, she comes from a town of farmers and taught herself fencing. After her false persona was discovered in Hinomoto, she ran to the Continent where she came across Annelotte, and ended up following her of her own accord.


  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Izumi has a very interesting way of blowing a flute in the Combat Books.
  • Foil: To the previous character from Hinomoto, Tomoe. While Tomoe was a formally trained Miko, Izumi is a self-taught farmer. While Tomoe was always polite and humble, Izumi is boastful and constantly tries to look better than she actually is. And while Tomoe is one of the few characters with a conservative outfit in the series, Izumi leaves pretty much her entire lower body exposed, with only a loincloth to cover her privates.
  • Friend to All Children: In the anime she is introduced taking care of children whose villages were attacked by the forces of the queen. Every single one of them adores her.
  • Kid Samurai: Except she's isn't really a proper samurai, but a country girl from Hinomoto who found a sword along the way and pretends to be one. Elina insults her (in the gamebooks' continuity) by calling her a redneck.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: It could look much more intimidating in an adult warrior, but wearing such an oversized scarf with her petit body makes Izumi look like a child trying too hard to look badass. Which is exactly what she is.
  • Shout-Out: When she appears for first time in the animated adaptation of Rebellion, she recites the famous Kamen Rider Stronger's Badass Creed. This also counts as an Homage, since Stronger's actor died a month earlier before the series debuted.
  • Tsundere: She really doesn't want to admit how much she admires Annelotte.
  • Underwear of Power: Her perpetually exposed loincloth.

Tanyang & Sainyang

Artist: Nakano Tomokazu
Title: Anti-Demon Experts

"Sainyang, you say something too!"
"...My stomach, I’m so hungry."

Twins born in the secluded region of Shai-Fang, descendants of a lineage of Anti-Demon Experts that has been carrying the responsibility of protecting the village for generations, and are bound by an unbreakable cord which is wrapped around their necks. They left in a journey to the outside world to bring back the "Sacred Vessel" that was stolen from their village.


  • Ambiguous Gender: A very odd case: Both characters' gamebooks make it clear that Sainyang is a boy, since Sainyang is the only character who shows his bare chest when receiving Clothing Damage (something that doesn't happens with his sister Tanyang). On the other hand, in the anime series and many official art, Sainyang's gender is left ambiguous instead, and sometimes he even looks more like a girl and less like a boy. Some fans believe there has been a Retcon regarding his/her gender, but this has never been confirmed.
  • Anime Accent Absence: Averted with Tanyang, but played straight with Sainyang: It's very possible Tanyang learned the Continent's local language very quickly and she speaks with a slight Chinese accent in her voice. On the other hand, Sainyang speaks the local language perfectly.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: They are this, very much so. They initially appear as Funny Foreigners, know Chinese martial arts, Tanyang speaks with an accent and wears a Qipao
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: Tanyang, to almost ridiculous extremes.
  • Big Eater: Tanyang loves to eat. She takes it to Refuge in Audacity levels, such as eating all the food a so-called Shai-Fang restaurant provided to her, then complaining about the food not being authentic like they claimed to be.
  • Casting Gag: It's not the first time Kei Shindou voiced a Chinese girl. Except the Chinese girl this time is a boy in drag!
  • Combination Attack: The "Double Dragon Formation", which consists of several techniques the siblings can perform together and are much stronger than anything they can do alone.
  • Cowardly Lion: Sainyang gets scared easily and prefers to avoid conflict, but when it's not possible to avoid a fight, you can be sure that Tanyang won't have to fight alone.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Some of the combinations of the "Double Dragon Formation" put the siblings in really suggestive poses.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Tanyang is strong willed, but also impulsive and rarely thinks in long term. Sainyang often tries to be her voice of reason, but being very quiet and introvert, the voice usually fails to reach Tanyang.
  • Qipao: Tanyang wears a red one.
  • The Quiet One: Sainyang is very taciturn and introverted, and often can only whisper in Tanyang's ear.
  • Sibling Team: Whenever they fight, they do it together. By combining Sainyang's arts with Tanyang's athletics, they can perform a number of combined attacks called "Double Dragon Formation".
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Sainyang, for an unexplained reason.

Sigui

Title: The Inquisitor

"Verdict, guilty. You have been regarded as a heretic, your punishment will be burning to death."

A nun and an inquisitor belonging to the Holy Dynasty. A fundamentalist, she is an extremely strict, yet devoted follower of God who is known for executing heretics, usually by burning them alive. Although many call her a cruel person, she is actually a virtuous woman, but she is too serious and inflexible and does not hesitate in judging people.


  • Berserk Button: Heretics, alchemy and alchemists can flip her shit faster than Mr. Heart watching his own blood.
  • Burn the Thieves!: It's what happens to the thieves who attacked her after she uses one of her most powerful Holy Poses to make them kneel to her in submission.
  • Church Militant: A religious Knight Templar fully authorized to punish anyone that can be called heretic. And "punish" in this case means "burn, burn and burn".
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Oh boy, the gamebook and Rebellion Zero manga's versions of her past is darker than even Menace: In the gamebook version, she was trained by a Pedophile Priest and the Rebellion Zero manga makes her background even darker, as she came from a very poor family and was abandoned in a monastery. After she became an Inquisitor, she pays them back by executing her family for that. In the anime this was massively toned down and she simply came from a very religious family instead.
  • Flanderization: Just like with Nanael and Tomoe, this is also inverted in the animated adaptation: In the gamebook continuity and in the manga adaptations she was basically a hardcore religious nutjob who kills anyone who she seems as a enemy of her faith. The animated adaptation of her on the other hand tones down this part and now she only uses deadly force on people that really deserves this, more especifically a gang of thieves, a guy who betrayed her twice, and she has her sights on The Swamp Witch, obviously.
  • Heel–Face Turn:
    • After being defeated by Annelotte in the final episode of the second Story Arc of the QB Rebellion's illustrated stories and after watching how evil her former leader was, she decides to side with Annelotte instead.
    • In the anime adaptation of Rebellion, she sides with Annelotte when she finds out that Ymir is Melona.
  • Judge, Jury, and Executioner: She could give Judge Dredd a run for his money. Oddly enough, the anime adaptation tones down this part considerably.
  • Kneel Before Zod: One of her attacks forces her human enemies to kneel before her. But in the Illustrated Stories, Annelotte manages to nullify her attack using her Super-Powered Evil Side.
  • Knight Templar: While genuinely kind and compassionate to her flock, Sigui pretty much has "burn the heretic!" as her default reaction to anyone she perceives to be an enemy of her faith.
  • Naughty Nun: When your job requires you to do something like the "Holy Poses", you are automatically this.
  • Nun Too Holy: Even more than Melpha! Her clothes expose more skin, and she never hesitates before doing a Holy Pose. And that's what her friends get to see. Her enemies will also find out how much of a violent Knight Templar she can be.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Only in the Rebellion Zero manga, for abandoning her as a kid in a monastery.
  • Shout-Out: Sigui was a pen name used by Oda Non in the past.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She's basically a more competent and dangerous Melpha.
  • Underwear of Power: Which she constantly allows others to see when doing one of her Sacred Poses.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: In the Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero manga, even after Huit saved her from some rogues who tried to kill both of them, she tries to kill Huit because she's an alchemist and Huit is forced to fight against her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Ymir calls her out after she burns the thieves in the stake after defeating them for insulting God.

Mirim

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2089e265bde4101909eb5f877d6baaad.jpg
Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki (Japanese), Brittany Lauda (English)
Artist: Tsurugi Hagane
Title: The Ultra-Vibrating Valkyrie

"Fuee~, I can't stand uup~"

Originally a poor rural girl from the village of Wasilica, Mirim sought to escape poverty by seeking a job at the Queen's Capital. It was there that she was brought in by Ymir as a test subject for her "Strongest Project", and became a member of the Queen's Army under a high-paying salary. She is equipped with the Hyper Vibration Armor and armed with the Hyper Vibration Sword "Infinite Slasher" and the Hyper Vibration shield, all of which are powered by the Hyper Vibration Crystal. This makes her nigh-impossible to harm, at the cost of overstimulating her sensitive areas. Despite being given strong armor and weapons, she has a weak-willed personality. She eventually leaves the Queen's Army for the Rebel Army.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: The vibrations of the Hyper Vibration Crystal allow "Infinite Slasher" to cut pretty much anything.
  • Apologizes a Lot: She often does this when fighting, and often pleads for her opponents to give up before she loses control of herself due to her specialized weapon and armor.
  • Berserk Button: Illustrated Stories only: Despise being an awfully shy and frail girl, there's a single thing that can really piss her off: Never try to force her to destroy her own town and kill her own family. Ymir learns this the hard way.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despise her Shrinking Violet personality and her woobie status, she manages to do something (in the Illustrated Stories only) that the rest of the heroines couldn't: defeat Claudette by herself, thanks to her armor. Averted in the anime adaptation since Claudette curb-stomps her along with the rest of the cast.
  • Blessed with Suck: She's arguably the most powerful character in the series, but can't so much as swing her blade without feeling overwhelming pleasure in her groin.
  • Break the Cutie: Manga only: Ymir (Melona impersonating her) forces her to kill innocent people just to test her armor.
  • Broken Bird: Let's not beat around the bush, her life sucked. Her family is very poor, to the point that even all their hard work can't always spare them from hunger and disease. She went to the capital seeking employment and ended up as the subject of Ymir's experiment, gaining a very powerful armor but also essentially becoming Ymir's slave. The manga version seals her breaking when Ymir makes her kill innocents just to test the armor.
  • Chainsaw Good: Her sword is technically a medieval motor chainsaw!
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is a mispelling of Mimir, one of the Æsir of the Norse Mythology.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Averted in the manga adaptation, where she does kills a few (unnamed) good guys, much to her horror.
  • No-Sell: The reason why the Hyper Vibration Armor is so terrifying. The vibrations generated by the crystals can deflect pretty much any attack aimed at Mirim, essentially making her impervious to most things the other warriors can throw at her.
  • Orgasmatron: What her armor basically is, though while it is technically pleasure she is feeling, Mirim is so sensitive and the armor is so powerful that she is effectively overstimulated the minute she deflects any attack. While not in pain, she is definitely uncomfortable the whole fight, and for quite some time afterwards.
  • Orwellian Ret Con: A necessary one happens between the web version of the Illustrated Stories and the paperback version: In the Net-based one, Mirim kills one of the Tomoe's fellow shrine maidens (later revealed to be named Tokiwa) when she was trying to help Annelotte escape from Gainos. Since that scene is out of character for her, in the paperback version, Tokiwa was killed by random guards instead, while Mirim is chasing Annelotte.
  • Shrinking Violet: She is very timid, which is why it takes so long for her to protest against Ymir's abusive treatment.
  • Unlikely Hero: Did you expect Leina to save the day against Claudette like she always does? WRONG! She sleeps instead due to her curse and Mirim defeats Claudette with the help of her armor.
  • Vibroweapon: The Hyper Vibration Crystal creates not only swords that cut with vibration, but also armor that use that same vibration to deflect attacks.

Title: The Great Pirate

"Greetings, rascals. Plundering with splendor and refinement is my aesthetics!"

A notorious, elusive pirate who once haunted the continent's coastal waters, Liliana is said to have died at the hands of the monster Kraken, only to be resurrected by the Swamp Witch to be one of her henchwomen. Liliana, however, would have none of it, instead continuing to live according to "Pirate Ethics" set up by her revered grandmother, the Pirate Queen Artemis. Unlike other pirates, she shows a sense of honor and manners befitting a noblewoman, as well as respect to the elderly.


  • Back from the Dead: She died long before the start of the series, but was resurrected by the Swamp Witch.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her red top leaves her stomach completely exposed.
  • Casting Gag: With the pink hair, cutlass and refined manners, she is quite reminiscent of a certain student council president.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: So dangerous, she came Back from the Dead and still struts around in that skirt!
  • Ghost Pirate: While she dose not look the part she is an Undead Pirate Captain.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the game book, where she abandons the Swamp Witch.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: After Claudette was defeated by Mirim and the Rebellion Army in the Illustrated Stories, she proceeds to destroy the castle by shelling it while the Rebellion Army was still deciding what to do next.
  • Noble Demon: Due to her strictly following her Pirate Aesthetics. Less so in the anime adaptation, which has her attacking a city that wouldn't have been able to defend itself if Annelotte wasn't there.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: In the animated adaptation.
  • Pirate Girl: She is the only female of her crew and she is the captain.
  • Running Gag: In the Illustrated Stories, she always cites her Pirate Aesthetics when she's doing something, sometimes in an annoying fashion. Both Ymir and Eilin manage to take advantage of this, using their ages to convince her to let the Rebellion Army board her ship to the Swamp.
  • Sky Pirates: She has a flying ship.

Title: The Enslaved Dragon Warrior

"Ugh, command me as you wish… A-are you satisfied now?"

A "Dragon Descendant", one of the most noble and rare beings in the Continent, also known as the "Holy Dragon Warriors" for serving the dragons in ancient times. Captured by the trainer (and master) Dogura, she has now become a gladiator slave forced to fight against other slaves and monsters in arenas, ordered to fight in exchange for the life of her Dragon Ride, Asher.


  • Ambiguously Brown: She has noticeably dark skin. It likely isn't a tan either since she's shown topless in an OVA special and no tanlines are present.
  • Beautiful Slave Girl: Fits this trope to a T, from the beautiful appearance to the outfit made specifically to emphasize her status as a slave.
  • Combat Sado Masochist: Confirmed by Hans in the Vanquished Queens Original Collection in the afterword, as she seems to enjoy being tortured by Dogura, albeit this is more for self-loathing reasons than anything else.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: Towards Dogura
  • Happiness in Slavery: While she's strong enough to get rid of her master Dogura if she wanted, she prefers being a slave to him, even after Annelotte defeats her and manages to knock out Dogura for a while.
  • Honor Before Reason: Even if she has the power to kick Dogura's ass for good, she's too proud to do it, not to mention she prefers being tortured by him.
  • Last Episode, New Character: She appears in the final arc when the Rebellion Army storms the Swamp and Ymir and Eilin fight her (and defeat her). Averted in the anime series, since she appears in the first episode instead.
  • Made a Slave: Branwen and her dragon ride Asher were captured by Dogura, and now she serves Dogura in exchange for Asher's life.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after Branwen, from the Mabinogion of Welsh Mythology.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Her left eye is red and her right eye is blue. Likely to show her status as a Dragon Descendant.
  • My Greatest Failure: The reason for her own self-loathing is because she let Dogura capture her dragon Asher, and she feels she cannot simply run away from Dogura while letting Asher be sacrified. Returning home with the shame of letting her ride be killed while she ran away like a coward would be unbearable.
  • Shout-Out: During the Vanquished Queens OVA Branwen uses an attack similar to the Thu'um aka the Dragon Shouts. Being a Dragon Warrior, this is quite fitting, not to mention this is a new attack exclusive from the animated canon as she doesn't use that move in her gamebook.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: The reason why she prefers to stay with Dogura, despise all the torture on her.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Sometimes she is very icy and stoic (as to be expected of a dragon warrior), and other times she is very gentle and submissive. This is reflected in her official bio which describes her as "cool, collected, and proud, but also gentle in nature".

Eilin

Artist: Hiiro Yuki
Title: The Jewel Princess

"Wealth is power! I still need much more!"

A dwarf who is also the daughter of the King of the Gemstone Mountain, the most prominent place in the Continent that produces gems. She's the cousin of Ymir from the Iron Mountain. Now, seeking profit in the Continent shaken by the fight between the Rebel Army and the Queen's Army, she has joined Ymir in the fight.


  • Badass Adorable: She is cute but strong, just like her cousin. It may be a family trait.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: With Ymir when they are kidnapped in the Rebellion Zero manga, because that's not actually dangerous for such strong Dwarfs.
  • Little Miss Badass: And just like with Ymir, the "litte miss" part is very relative.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Despite serving the queen and technically being an antagonist for the rebellion army, she doesn't really do anything evil before it's revealed "Ymir" is an impostor and Claudette is being manipulated.
  • No-Sell: Like with Ymir, the whip of the woman who thought she could kidnap and sell them fails to even scratch her skin. They find the idea of someone trying to whip Dwarfs to be laughable.
  • Older Alter Ego: Just like her cousin, she's able to change into a older looking version of herself, but only in the QB Rebellion Zero prequel manga, not in the sequel nor in her gamebook.
  • Older Than They Look: Judging by the way she speaks and according with the Rebellion's mini-OVAs, she's 50 years old, ten (or twenty) years younger than Ymir, although for Dwarven standards, she's a young adult like her cousin.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: She is an antagonist only because her trusted cousin happens to be working for the villain.
  • Satellite Character: She shares the same gamebook with her cousin Ymir and she doesn't have much personality on her own, other than suspecting in the Illustrated Stories that her cousin is NOT the real one and also participating in Ymir's scheme to fool Captain Liliana to let the Rebellion Army board her ship.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She's following Ymir out of loyalty towards her, rather than towards the queen. Too bad "Ymir" is actually a disguised Melona who really appreciates her unaware help.
  • Verbal Tic: She uses Oiran speech patterns (the same ones used by Holo), making her sound older and cuter at the same time.

Title: The Divine Punishment Enforcer

"By the will of Heaven... I'll purify... you?"

A half-angel who functions as Nanael's assistant. She was living on the human world before the Head Angel found her. She was taken to Heaven and became an angel trainee under Nanael's supervision. Nanael ordered Laila to clean the chaos on the human world with the "Divine Punishment" using the Heavenly Rifle which fires Holy Milk.


  • Badass Adorable: An even better example than Nanael, as her timid nature gives her a much cuter personality than her boastful boss.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's half-angel, half-human, but unlike characters like Nowa, no one seems to notice or care about that, other than in her background information.
  • Meaningful Name: Laila has two meanings in two different languages: In Arabic, it means "Dark Beauty" (and also the Arabic rendering of the Hebrew name "Lilith"), and in Nordic countries, it means "Holy", hence why she's an half-angel.
  • Satellite Character: Possibly as a side-effect of being ascended from sidekick to nominal character too quickly during her development, she's the least developed character of the series, despise her background in the gamebooks. The Rebellion Zero manga does dedicate a chapter to her and Branwen, which helps her develop a little as her own character.
  • Shout-Out: The Holy Milk Cannon she uses in the Vanquished Queens OVA looks a lot like the Hyper Mega Cannon used by the ZZ Gundam and their predecesors.
  • Sizeshifter: She can become giant since she is a nephilim.
  • Stay with the Aliens: Inverted. She prefers to stay on Earth with Eilin after having enough of Nanael's antics in the Illustraded Stories.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She was originally designed to be Nanael's partner not unlike Hachiel, but thanks to Nanael's VA having to take a break from voice acting, she ended up becoming a substitute for Nanael herself.
  • Unwitting Pawn: In the Illustrated Stories, she works for the Queen's Army, since one of the privileges Claudette has as a queen is requesting celestial help when things go awry, like facing the Rebellion Army. Averted in the animated series, since she refuses to work for her instead.
