Characters from Rhapsody

Cornet Espoir
Voiced by Kahoru Fujino (Japanese), Sara Thomas (English)

Cornet is the cheerful heroine of the first game. She can sing, play the horn, and even talk to puppets; which most people cannot do. Cornet longs for a passionate relationship and despises toads. She longs for a prince to sweep her off of her feet.

Tropes associated with Cornet:


Voiced by Maria Kawamura (Japanese), Jody Fleischer (English)

She is a puppet and Cornet's best friend. She follows Cornet throughout the game, often making humorous comments on her behavior. She likes cherries, and dislikes anything sour. Unlike other puppets, Kururu can move around on her own without the powers of Cornet's horn, and she can talk to other humans besides Cornet.

Tropes associated with Kururu:


Voiced by Maria Kawamura (Japanese), Jody Fleischer (English)

Cherie is Cornet's mother, whom is said to have been killed in an accident many years prior to the start of the game. She was the princess of the ancient, and has a ability that lets her transform into an angelic form when she releases her power. She is at once mature and charmingly childish.

Tropes associated with Cherie:

Ferdinand Marl E.
Voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Josh Synard (English)

The prince, and soon to be king, of Marl Kingdom. He often sneaks out of the castle to hunt or visit the city. Cornet has dreamed of him her whole life and falls in love with him after a chance meeting in the forest when he saves her from a dragon summoned by Myao. The two later start to fall in love after meeting the 2nd time in the castle. Then Marjoly appears to get back Ferdinand for beating Myao, instantly falls in love with him and tries to teleport him to her castle, but screws up the spell and accidentally turns him to stone, and he's stuck that way till Cornet breaks the spell at the end of the game.

Tropes associated with Ferdinand:
  • Badass in Distress: He first appears on screen and single highhandedly kills a dragon in a couple seconds, but can't anything for most of the game on account of being turned to stone.
  • The Worf Effect: After showing that he's a formidable fighter in his debut scene, he's easily overpowered to show strong Marjoly is.

Etoile Rosenqueen
Voiced by Yuri Amano (Japanese), Jody Fleischer (English)

She is Cornet's arrogant rival. Etoile often makes sarcastic remarks about Cornet. She is from a rich background and loves being the center of attention.

Tropes associated with Etoile:
  • Child Hater: It does not stop her from helping children in need though.
  • Childhood Friends: To Cornet, though they don't always get along.
  • Dark Secret: She is terrified of the day Claire get to know she is not her biological mother.
  • Doting Parent: To her daughter.
  • Non-Idle Rich: In the first game, she gathers some people, and guns, to help Cornet on her quest.
  • Tsundere: Mean and condescending on the outside, kind and helpful on the inside.

Voiced by Michie Tomizawa (Japanese), Carrie Gordon-Lowrey (English)

She is malevolent and very conceited, with lyrics in her song "Evil Queen" describing herself to be "mightier than the god...more beautiful than the goddess". She fell in love with Prince Ferdinand (immediately after seeing him the first time) and meant to teleport him only to turn him into stone.

Tropes associated with Marjoly:
  • Bad Boss: Frequently bickers with her underlings, often threatening them. But it works both ways as they have no respect for her and belittle her every chance they get.
  • Christmas Cake: Related to her Informed Deformity, but also played up due to Japan's obsession with youth and beauty. Marjoly is frequently insulted as being an old hag - in fact, she looks like she might be in her thirties, or possibly some rockin' forties. Though that's probably still way too old for the type of guys she tries to grab.
  • Dirty Old Woman: She likes young lads way too much.
    "Tell me boy, how about spending an unforgettable night with me?"
    • Her own lackeys enjoy pointing out in the middle of her song that she's old enough to be Ferdinand's mother.
  • Evil Is Petty: Is quick to go fly into rage if insulted, which happens a lot because her minions have no respect for her.
  • Gainaxing: To the extreme!
  • Inept Mage: She is prone to Magic Misfire, aside from the mentioned above of turning Ferdinand, there's also when fighting the ancient weapon where she screws up a spell and literally knocks herself out.
    • Although, for all that she is inept at being effective in battle, if she DOES hit you with a spell it will hurt. A lot. Her raw magical power is undeniable.
    • Dropped entirely in her playable Disgaea cameos. She's no more inept then any more then any other spell caster in that game.
  • Informed Deformity: The other characters insist that she looks really old and that she does not have the body to wear that kind of outfit.
    • Her Disgaea cameos also state she wears far too much make-up instead, in addition to calling her old.
  • Laughably Evil: she tries to be threatening, but through a combination of her own stupitidy, the fact that her own minions don't take her seriously and mock her at every chance possible (which there are many), make scenes with her the funniest parts of the game.
  • Noble Demon: Neither her or her lackeys are bad people.

Voiced by Yukari Tamura (Japanese), Sara Thomas (English)

Myao is one of Marjoly's lackeys. She appears to be a child. She often acts childish and selfish, and she can cast powerful magic to summon dragons.

Tropes associated with Myao:

Voiced by Miho Yamada (Japanese), Jody Fleischer (English)

Crowdia is another of Marjoly's lackeys. She is very beautiful, but very narcissistic. She has large black wings, like a crow, and fights with a sword.

Tropes associated with Crowdia:

Voiced by Yayoi Jinguji (Japanese), Rachel Quaintanes (English)

Gao is Marjoly's third lackey. It is said that she has the strength to fight a dragon with her bare hands. Many people mistake her for a man, including Cornet.

Tropes associated with Gao:
  • Boobs of Steel: Out of Marjoly's lackeys she has the biggest bust and is of course the brawler.
  • Kick Chick: She got really strong arms, but she primarily kicks.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: She is called werewolf several times and does not deny being one, but she is never seen completely transformed. Interestingly in Disgaea 4 appears a werewolf with the same physical attributes, namely Fenrich.

Tropes associated with Mustaki:

Polansky is a mage who lives alone in the Tower of Wisdom. He tells Cornet that she must collect the Heart Stones in order to save Ferdinand. He was also friends with Mustaki.
Tropes associated with Polanski:

Minister Golonzo of Marl Castle.
Tropes associated with Golonzo:
  • Big Bad: Of the first game. Apparent that he's evil but doesn't do anything till he shows up out of nowhere at Marjoly's castle with a copy of the Ancient Weapon which plans to use to Take Over the World. Majorly nearly curb stomps it, but screws up with one of her spells and K.Os herself.
  • Beard of Evil: A pointy little Van Dyke.
