Sovereingty of Dryada
Lord-Ranger Daithelen Kevlamir
Born of a noble family and trained under the rangers of the Verdant Kingdom, Daithelen Kevlamir's interest in adventuring would lead him to travel the world accompanied by the dwarf named Jalaric Hathgar, and from him, more individuals would join the band which would become known as the Goldhawks, one of the most band of heroes in modernity. However, the Sovereignty saw too much use in him, and eventually forced him into their clutches to serve as their soldier.
- Forest Ranger: First trained under them, and now he's their leader, though not by choice.
- Happily Married: With Riomara Acquae, some time after the events of The Goldhawk Chronicles.
- The Leader: Eventually came to consider himself the leader of the Goldhawks, something which caused his relationship with the others to sour as he begun treating them less as friends and more like underlings.
- Named Weapons: His longsword is named Tranquility.
- Red Baron: The Black Manhunter.
- Took a Level in Cynic: After the dissolution of the Goldhawks, he's become far more cynical.
- True Companions: With the rest of the Goldhawks. As shown by The Curse of Visonia, he still cares, even for Hald-Sleac.
An Aithrena elf girl who lost her original parents and was adopted by a family of Black orcs, Khadya's life changed when her second set of adoptive parents were killed by the Cult of the Eclipse, with Master Apostle Tibias Merrow himself giving her chase. However, the famed Goldhawks would arrive just in time and rescue the girl from slavery, with her being adopted a final time by Daithelen and Riomara. Growing up into a huntress of exceptional skill, today she hunts beasts and wicked men alike.
- Action Girl: One of the best archers of elvenkind, she's able to stand toe to toe with demons and monsters on her lonesome.
- Affectionate Nickname: "White", given to her by Saranhreia during Angels of the Hunting Isle.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her stomach is uncovered in her huntress attire.
- Beauty, Brains and Brawn: The Beauty to Filonan's Brains and Saranhreia's Brawn.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Under all their bickering, Alfgund and Khadya had a thing going. It went nowhere.
- Bi the Way: Swings both ways.
- Buxom Is Better: Described as having a very generous bosom, which she flaunts over.
- Casting a Shadow: She has power over umbramancy, using it to engulf her arrows in dark magic in order to empower them.
- Even the Girls Want Her: Clothovera has shown bisexual tendencies towards her, though they're entirely carnal; she actually finds her insufferable in terms of personality. She's also attracted the likes of Javina Desertsun, though she doesn't count due to being a lesbian and therefore only attracted to women.
- Fire-Forged Friends: First with the Goldhawks, later with Filonan and Saranhreia during Angels of the Hunting Isle.
- Friends with Benefits: With Filonan Aerember during Angels of the Hunting Isle. The Erylian isn't too proud of it afterwards.
- Good Bad Girl: A heroine by all means, and a very promiscuous one at that.
- Happily Adopted: First by a family of black orcs, and later by the Goldhawks. Riomara still refers to her as her "little Khadya" even though she's now taller than her.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Didn't act on her feelings for Daithelen as to preserve his and Riomara's happiness, since she understood she came in too late.
- Mage Marksman: Fights with a shortbow, using arrows enhanced by dark magic.
- Ms. Fanservice: One of the most sexualized characters in the setting. When she's not being an Action Girl, she's letting out sexual innuendos and serving as eye-candy for the other characters.
- Raised by Orcs: After she lost her elven parents, she was raised by a black orc couple. Given her personality by the time the Goldhawks found her, it seems they treated her fairly well.
- Really Gets Around: Described as very promiscuous. This is believed to have started as a coping mechanism for not having the chance to romance Daithelen, though by now she does it because she just likes having sex.
- She's Got Legs: Her legs are mostly exposed.
- Sixth Ranger: During The Goldhawk Chronicles, being a late addition to the team.
- Stripperific: Very much so, leaving much of her lower body exposed for everyone to see. She's lucky she's very agile and can dodge hits well, otherwise she'd get killed pretty quickly.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Saranhreia.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: First with Daithelen (who was never aware of her feelings), then with Alfgund Stonesoul.
Born from a clan of witches living deep in the Empire of Man's lands, Clothovera's family was killed in a three-way battle between them, Inquisitors and Lympharians, leaving her with nothing but the clothes on her person and her family's book of hexes. Forced to live as a wanderer, paying favours for food and shelter, Clothovera's life was a miserable one, at least until the day she met a certain Lagosi boy, whose fate was closely linked to hers.
- Adorkable: As a shy, quiet girl who spends much of her time this, she comes off as this at times, from miscasting spells to falling over while trying to open Alhazred, especially during her earlier appearances.
- All Witches Have Cats: Her familiar, Nyakik, is a cat-like creature.
- Arch-Enemy: She considers Zran Kar, the Simulacrum of knowledge, this, as he has plagued her bloodline for five thousand years.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: During War of Vampires, when she was taken over by Zran Kar, who transformed her into a vampiress. Only The Power of Love was able to break her out of it.
- Casting a Shadow: Specializes in dark magic, which she casts through the use of hexes. Her tattoos are her current magic catalyst, though she's also able to use Alhazred as such (and indeed, could only cast magic through him before her formal education).
- Characterization Marches On: Introduced as an extremely shy but very horny girl played to silly levels who would frequently have Inner Monologues. The latter was very swiftly cut altogether, while the former was severely toned down in order to make her less one-dimensional. Today, she has little traces of her initial characterization.
- Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: She has them, emphasizing her nature as a witch.
- Cute Witch: A young witch woman who is widely considered cute by those who meet her, as she combines the best traits of a human and an elf.
- Damsel in Distress: During Dawning of Distaste, where she was kidnapped by Minoqamius, and War of Vampires, when she was Brainwashed and Crazy by Zran Kar.
- Demonic Possession: Zran Kar has possessed her twice, first during War of Vampires and again during Hysteria. While a True Love's Kiss could get him out of her the first time, it didn't work so good on the second possession.
- Doomed Hometown: The witch coven she was born in was destroyed by Inquisitors and Lympharians, leaving her and Damon as the only survivors.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Pale-skinned and with dark purple hair.
- Expy: Inspired by Tomoko Kuroki, at first. She's evolved beyond it by now.
- Familiar: Nyakik, a magical cat with a mean and haughty attitude.
- Fantastic Racism: As shown in Hysteria, she absolutely hates humans due to her bad experiences with the Imperial Inquisition. She wishes she could've been born a pureblooded elf.
- Generation Xerox: In terms of appearance, she resembles a younger version of her ancestor, Clotholaire Moirai. She was directly named after her too.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Half-Manorian human, half-Aithrena elf, a fact which dismays her a lot. She really wishes she could drop the half-human part.
- Happily Adopted: By the Sea Witch, and later by Ennea Ignaura.
- Interspecies Romance: With Hachi, a Lagosi. There's three species involved in this. Unfortunately or not, they can't have children with one another.
- Journey to the Center of the Mind: The side-story Hysteria takes place inside her mind.
- No Social Skills: During her early appearances, she would often stutter and freeze in fear while trying to socialize. She got better over time.
- Official Couple: With Hachi, following the end of Into the Flesh Forest.
- Power Tattoo: Her body is covered in tattoos, given to her when she was a baby, which allow her to channel her magic following the events of Doctrina Venefica. It's something that was given to all members of her family's coven.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Damon's blue.
- Shrinking Violet: During her early years. Hachi and the Sea Witch helped her grow out of it.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Under the effects of her Aether Emerald, she became a massive monster of shadow taking a shape similar to her own. It eventually broke free of her during the events of Doctrina Venefica and was destroyed outright.
- Unstoppable Rage: When Minoqamius kidnapped her during Dawning of Distaste, she was enraged to the point she refused to leave the Kamehebi Fortress before killing her captor. This caused her relationship to Hachi to crumble as he finally saw her bad side.
- The Teetotaler: She sees no appeal in alcohol, believing it serves only to make you dumber.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is a deep purple color.
Adjutor Damon Moirai
The older brother of Clothovera Moirai, Damon was the other survivor of the massacre that led to the death of his family. By sneaking into Merovar caravans, he eventually found his way into the Sovereignty of Dryada, where he was found living in the streets by Ennea Ignaura. Adopted by the motherly Erylian, he became her assistant at the Grand Collegium, graduating in the Arts of Aeromancy and becoming an Adjutor.
- The Ace: The most skilled out of Clothovera's circle of friends, making him their most reliable member, even if he doesn't have Heilen's raw power.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Vhalra Kasalsain. Eventually led to a Relationship Upgrade.
- Big Brother Instinct: He will do everything in his power to ensure Clothovera's safety. Their first meeting after years separated had him break into tears.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Ended up the first to fall under the influence of Prisieth Faemyar's magical mind controlling spores, which he would infect everyone else with save for Szalvetha, who is immune to magic.
- Blow You Away: Has forsaken dark magic in favour of aeromancy, learned from Ennea Ignaura.
- The Casanova: Remarkably popular among the girls of the Collegium (and even some teachers), who are attracted to his Heroic Build, aloof demeanor and exoticness due to being half-human, a fact he made ample use of. Temporarily died out after he entered a proper relationship with Vhalra, only to come back after they broke up.
- Class Representative: Adjutors are roughly the Collegium equivalent of this, though Damon has already graduated and doesn't take lessons anymore.
- Doomed Hometown: The witch coven he was born in was destroyed by Inquisitors and Lympharians, leaving him and Clothovera as the only survivors.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: It's in the family.
- Familiar: Felvinus, a mischievous cat-like creature who can assume the form of a powerful sabertooth tiger.
- Friends with Benefits: Described as having a rather... intimate relationship with his adoptive mother Ennea. Not quite incest, given they have no blood relation, but it's still not something they flaunt about in the open. He later became this with Prisieth Faemyar, which got in in a pickle.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Half-Manorian human, half-Aithrena elf, being overall more human-like than elven in appearance.
- Happily Adopted: By Ennea Ignaura.
- Heroic Build: Tall and muscular, which emphasized the human half of his family.
- Official Couple: With Vhalra Kasalsain, after much Belligerent Sexual Tension. It didn't last too long, though.
- Offscreen Breakup: His official description reveals that he and Vhalra broke up sometime after the end of Doctrina Venefica due to pressure from her anti-human family and his casanova tendencies making him a less than faithful partner.
- Power Tattoo: He has the same hex tattoos as Clothovera. However, he has forsaken dark magic entirely, and as such doesn't use them for any magic-related purposes.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Clothovera's red.
- The Stoic: Maintains a cool and collected demeanor.
Grand Sovereign State-College of Magicka
Vice-Archtutor Osvernal Eilenneim
The Vice-Archtutor of the Collegium at the time of Doctrina Venefica, Osvernal taught students in the arts of umbramancy. A rotten and racist man who was widely distrusted by his peers, he never got over the death of his sister, Aesleith, which would lead him to turn to terrible forces to gain control of her legacy...
- Big-Bad Ensemble: One of the two main antagonists of Doctrina Venefica, alongside Tibias Merrow.
- Casting a Shadow: A very powerful user of dark magic, amplified by his nature as a vampire.
- Cool Sword: His sword is imbued with a stable combination of both light and darkness, something which has often been considered impossible to achieve. His "Devouring Shadows", as he calls them, eat away anyone struck by the sword unless they are exposed to sunlight.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: During his final confrontation with Delmar Crowfeather, he got on the receiving end of one, as he severely underestimated his opponent.
- Doomed Hometown: His hometown was destroyed by a human raiding party. It led him to despise humankind ever since.
- Expy: Inspired by Dio Brando.
- Famous Last Words: "Aesleith... I... I-I'm so sorry... I... o-only wanted to do you proud... To have what you had... Urgh.... Ahh... O-Oh well... I g-got... what I d-deserved... W-Were it not for you, Aesleith... I'd have... hated this life... My only regret...? ... Allowing you... to die..."
- Fantastic Racism: Has a deep hatred for humans due to his hometown being pillaged and burned to the ground, leaving him and Aesleith orphans.
- Faux Affably Evil: Maintains a professional face to the student body, but he is anything but affable deep-down.
- Horned Humanoid: As typical of an Aithrena elf, he has a pair of horns upon his head. He had one ripped off his skull during the fight with Aliester.
- Jerkass: A rude and unlikable man in general, he only has a professional relationship with most members of the Collegium's staff and the students avoid him at every chance.
- Killed Off for Real: After being beaten to a bloody pulp by Delmar, Clothovera finished him off with a stab to the heart.
- Klingon Promotion: Had the Undine Assassin murder the previous Archtutor so he could step up and take his place.
- Love Makes You Evil: Became a monster to protect his sister, Aesleith. She wouldn't realize anything until it was far too late.
- Our Vampires Are Different: Rather than being bit, Osvernal became a vampire by drinking a portion of Pureblood Vampire blood. He had trouble keeping his powers in check, forcing him to work alongside Delmar Crowfeather in order to devise medicines to calm his bloodlust down.
- Pride: His fatal flaw. He never believed anyone, much less humans would be able to stop him. He was very wrong.
- Would Hit a Girl: Would also kill a girl too, as Clothovera and her friends nearly experienced.
Vice-Archtutor Aesleith Eilenneim
One of the Collegium's most beloved Archtutors, Aesleith Eilenneim was famed for her empathy, her kindness and her open mind which allowed the school to continue taking on non-elven students and those that came from lower class families. However, a freak accident had her in the center of a terrible explosion of magic, which led to her unfortunate death.
- Bad Black Barf: Her haunt form constantly had black liquid mixed with hair dripping out of her mouth.
- Barred from the Afterlife: Due to how her soul was fragmented, none of its pieces can move on to the afterlife.
- Body Horror: In her ghostly form possessing Vhalra's body, she caused the young woman to grown into a matured figure, which would be quite Fanservicey if it wasn't for the layer of skin which grew over the elf's face, obscuring her eyes and mouth from view.
- Boy Meets Ghoul: When she possessed Vhalra, one of her first actions was to (forcefully) kiss Damon for a time. She did it for no reason but because she thought he was cute, though he wasn't so appreciative with all the hair going down his throat.Damon: Well, I don't know how to feel about all this... Since Vhalra is still asleep, guess I can say you're a damn fine-looking ghost when you're not puking on me.
- Casting a Shadow: Among the greatest umbramancers of the Sovereignty, she was always said to have been a better sorcerer than Osvernal was.
- Cute Ghost Girl: After freeing Vhalra, she manifested as a shade with her own true feminine proportions, pitch-black save for eyes which shimmered with cosmic light, a far more welcoming sight to be certain.
- Demonic Possession: Possessed the body of Vhalra Kasalsain to gain a physical form, as she wanted to be alive once again.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Walked around barefoot, according to Delmar.
- Doomed Hometown: Her hometown was destroyed by a human raiding party. Unlike Osvernal, however, she didn't hold back on the human race over it.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Had blonde hair, and was widely remembered for her empathy and kindness.
- In the Hood: In life, she wore a hood which hid her eyes from view.
- Ms. Fanservice: She showed a lot of skin for the head of an university, with her wide hips exposed, her legs shown and her feet bare.
- Nice Guy: Or girl. She is widely remembered for her god heart, her empathy and her welcoming demeanor to all races who wished to study at her Collegium, including humans and beastmen.
- Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: Her haunt isn't evil or dangerous, just very confused. She wanted to live again, to warn the Collegium that the Cult of the Eclipse was coming.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: Her soul was shattered into hundreds of pieces, each only a glimpse of her true self, with the greater ones managing to manifest as haunts. These pieces are bound to the Collegium, and according to Heilen, the Grim Reaper would only manage to take them all if he leveled the whole place down, something he saw no worth in doing.
- Posthumous Character: Died four years before the events of Doctrina Venefica.
- She's Got Legs: Her pale legs remained exposed as part of her umbramantic attire.
- Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Her haunt form. It had an inhumanly thin body, so much her veins were easily seen across her skin, with black hair rather than gold which covered and grew out of most of her upper body, including growing out of places hair isn't meant to grow on, like her spine.
- Stripperiffic: With how much skin she showed during life, it's obvious she was doing it for more than just practicality's sake.
Tutor Ennea Ignaura
A wind magic Tutor of the Collegium and a Lesser Magister of the Esoteric Order of the Sovereignty, Ennea Ignaura is the adoptive mother and caretaker of Damon Moirai. With a love for all living things, she is among the nicest teaches in the Collegium, showing affection to her students much like a mother for her children.
- Animorphism: She can shapeshift into a dove.
- Badass Teacher: While typically more worried about teaching her students, she's not afraid to help protect them from danger, be it from shadowy monsters to the Cult of the Eclipse.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her navel is fully exposed in her outfit, which helps show off her hips.
- Buxom Is Better: Described as having a large and generous bust.
- Blow You Away / Playing with Fire: Primarily a user of wind magic, she can also use some pyromancy, often combining them both to create powerful vortexes of flame.

- Doomed Hometown: Her home town was destroyed by Duergar raiders, leaving her an orphan.
- Friends with Benefits: Described as having a rather... intimate relationship with her adoptive son Damon. Not quite incest, given they have no blood relation, but it's still not something they flaunt about in the open.
- Friend to All Living Things: She adores animals and they adore her back. During Doctrina Venefica, she was shown to visit the animal infirmary ward, where she spends time caring care of ill beasts.
- The Gadfly: Likes to tease Damon, because she knows he gets embarrassed over it.
- Happily Adopted: She happily adopted Damon and Clothovera as her children. Subverted with herself, however, who was an orphan who refused every family that tried to adopt her and rather left her orphanage when she became too old to live there.
- The Heart: Among the staff of the Collegium.
- Magic Staff: Named Riddle.
- Ms. Fanservice: And she knows it. Large breasts, exposed thighs, bare legs, bare feet... Typical Polendohth scholarly robes are less revealing, but hers has emphasis on her cleavage and exposes her naval and left thigh. That's not even mentioning she has a birthmark in a shape resembling a heart above her crotch.
- Nice Guy: Or gal. She is a lovable and gentle woman who has a refined, motherly touch with those she holds dear.
- She's Got Legs: Her legs are almost completely bare, save for some small adornments on her lower thighs.

- Happily Married: With Daithelen Kevlamir, some time after the events of The Goldhawk Chronicles.

- Thou Shalt Not Kill: She doesn't like violence in general, but is particularly against killing. She can, however, make an exception for demons and undead.
A student of the Arts of the Arcane and the Martial Arts, Teael Sehenem is a plucky and energetic young woman who quickly becomes a close friend of Clothovera Moirai when she arrives to the Collegium. While not apparent, she has human blood, and due to it, she does not have the favour of her family.
- Abusive Parents: The elven side of her family has abused her over her quarter-human status. When she graduated, none of them even bothered to show up, believing it unworthy of their time to watch her be praised for something a pureblooded elf could easily achieve. This led her to abandon them to live in the Vairadi estate.
- Action Girl: With her sword in hand and arcane magic at her disposal, she's not afraid of a scrap.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her stomach is exposed in her usual attire.
- Berserk Button: Having her human heritage brought up, due to her family mistreating her over it.
- She can't stand puns. Unlike the human thing, this is Played for Laughs.
- Better as Friends: She had romantic feelings for Szalvetha, though she wasn't interested. She isn't angry about it, however, accepting her as a friend even after that.
- Butch Lesbian: Very much a tomboy, and very much into girls rather than boys.
- Genki Girl: Plucky and energetic.
- Half-Human Hybrid: She is quarter human. Superficially, she is indistinguishable from any Aithrenan woman, though her purist family have oppressed her over it her entire life.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Szalvetha Vairadi. She's actually homosexual, but it still counts.
- Lethal Chef: Subverted. She thinks her cooking is bad, but everyone else thinks it's just fine. She can't be convinced, though.
- Magic Knight: Uses her magic to amplify her swordfighting.
- Odd Friendship: She and Szalvetha couldn't be more different, yet they value each other as best friends.
- Protectorate: Has pledged herself to defend Szalvetha. Literally becomes the case at the end of Doctrina Venefica, where she becomes a bodyguard of the Vairadi family.
- Pure Energy: She specializes in arcane magic, which is the Source in its purest state.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Szalvetha's blue.
- Tomboy: Quite a manly young woman, spending most of her time with male friends and showing little interest in feminine hobbies.
The oldest child of the noble Vairadi family, one of the most influential Derevar elf clans in the Sovereignty, Szalvetha is a broody and somewhat sadistic young woman who frequents the Collegium to study the arts of alchemy and anti-magic, becoming a close friend of Teael and later Clothovera in the process.
- Alchemy Is Magic: Has a deep fascination with alchemy, as it's the only magic she's able to use due to her Derevar heritage. The potions she has created range from healing flasks to strength enhancers.
- Anti-Magic: Like all Derevar, she emits an aura of anti-magic which makes both resilient to magic and quite unpleasant to be close to. Part of her studies involved gaining control of this field, so that she could expand it or suppress it on command, a feat which she achieved by the end of Doctrina Venefica.
- Blue Blood: She's a noblewoman, member of one of Purity's Apogee's richest families. It doesn't look like it at first glance, and her friends at genuinely surprised when they find out. Doesn't help that she doesn't consider it an important thing to note.
- Brutal Honesty: Has a rather blunt way of speaking her mind, a trait which she inherited from her family.
- Creepy Monotone: Described as speaking in a quiet and monotone tone.
- Deadpan Snarker: Often points out and makes witty remarks of the stupidity of her friends or whatever it is that's currently happening.
- Expy: Inspired by Sucy Mambavaran.
- Fantastic Racism: She hates vampires, as it's typical of her race. After meeting Kyrieleth, however, her opinion on them has improved a bit.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Teael Sehenem.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Past her very tough exterior, she's not a bad person.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivered one to Prisieth after weakening her with her anti-magical field.
- Mad Scientist: Enjoys creating concoctions and test them on unsuspected victims, mainly Teael.
- Master Poisoner: Many of her alchemical brews are poisonous or acidic in nature, which she uses as her primary means of offense and defense.
- Nerves of Steel: Almost entirely immune to fear. The only thing that can really frighten her is the thought that her friends may be in danger.
- Odd Friendship: She and Teael couldn't be more different, yet they value each other as best friends.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Her right eye is covered in her raven black hair.
- Rage Breaking Point: During her fight with Prisieth, she appeared to lose all hope, only to reveal the only think she lost was her cool. It was then that her anti-magical field went out of control, and she became downright terrifying.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Teael's red.
- Sadist: Became dedicated to alchemy after using it to turn a neighbourhood bully's head into that of a frog, and since then showed some glee in causing misery. After the incident with Vhalra, however, her sadistic tendencies slowly died down, and are now typically reserved to the wicked like Prisieth Faemyar.
- The Stoic: Typical for a Derevar elf, her emotions are greatly repressed compared to other races, making her appear very cold to others. Even when happy or angry, her expression remains relatively unchanged, save for perhaps a shift of her eyebrows.
- Token Evil Teammate: Out of Clothovera's circle of friends, she's the most morally ambiguous, once giving murdering Vhalra serious consideration. She became less bad through the course of Doctrina Venefica, however, eventually coming to regret her most violent past actions. According to Delmar Crowfeather, it must be In the Blood, as her mother too displayed morally wrong tendencies during her time as a student.
A young man with a pompadour, Pyrath is a student of the Arts of Pyromancy and Alchemy. A friendly and hot-blooded lad, he thinks himself the coolest guy in the Collegium, when in fact he's just copying the style of his older brother, Ferathis.
- Alchemy Is Magic: Studies alchemy as his secondary magic, using it to transform into a Draconic Humanoid.
- Berserk Button: Don't make fun of his hair.
- He's not a dragon fetishist.
- Big Brother Worship: Admired his brother Ferathis to the point he copied his style so he'd look similar to him. Ferathis himself doesn't mind it, as he loves his brother back just as much.
- Butt-Monkey: Generally the butt of many jokes, usually about his hair being stupid or him being sexually attracted to dragons.
- Draconic Humanoid: Using alchemy, he can partially give himself draconic features, including scales and horns upon his head. During this transformation, he is also much stronger, enough to wrestle with a kirin.
- Heroic BSoD: Suffered through an extended one after Ferathis died and his rage subdued, being distraught not only over his loss, but to the inevitable reaction of his parents. Only after a stern lecture from Heilen, who was forced to reveal his undeath to him, did he manage to move on, coming to terms that his brother was still watching him from the afterlife.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Gave one to the Undine Assassin during their final confrontation, leading to her arrest. He was upset he didn't get the chance to outright kill her.
- Official Couple: Hooks up with Kyrieleth Dalverat at the end of Doctrina Venefica.
- Playing with Fire: As a student of pyromancy, he wields fire magic, typically using it to launch fireballs from his hands.
- Rage Breaking Point: Ferathis's death made him go past it, where he was reduced to nothing but yelling for the death of the Undine Assassin.
- Shout-Out: His pompadour is one to Josuke Higashikata.
The younger brother of Lyra Shinerun, Heilen is a lazy bum who has been failing his classes for many years straight. He was once the personal assistant of Aesleith Eilenneim, having never really recovered from the explosion that killed her... in more ways than it seems.
- Almighty Janitor: By far the most powerful member of Clothovera's circle of friends, but his sheer laziness means he rarely, if ever, contributes to anything.
- The Anti-Nihilist: Despite having lost the chance to live a normal life, he retains a jovial disposition and keeps his friends from learning of his problems so they don't worry about him.
- Barred from the Afterlife: He remained in the mortal world because Mortium realized he could be of use in the Colegium, keeping an eye on the fragmented Aesleith and eventually fighting the Cult of the Eclipse. He was finally allowed to move on at the end of Doctrina Venefica.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: A one-sided one towards Teael, who he had a crush on, but due to his undead state, he understood he could never act on it. He confesses his feelings (in his usual half-joking manner) at the ending of Doctrina Venefica.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He'll only stand up when his friends are threatened, as the Undine Assassin found out. However, doing so also consumes much of his strength.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: He's actually a prodigy in the arts of light magic, and even served as the personal assistant to Aesleith Eilenneim as she experimented means to combine light and darkness. However, he has lost all interest in everything, and as such rarely uses his powers.
- Broken Ace: An adept at the arts of luxomancy, perhaps one of the best in the Collegium's history, but after Aesleith's death, he no longer cares.
- Dead All Along: He's undead, appearing as a common elf to people while he is, in fact, an agent of The Grim Reaper left behind to keep an eye on Aesleith's soul fragments. His family is aware of the fact he died, but the Collegium staff isn't.
- Dem Bones: When revealing his true undead form, he is little more than a shriveled skeleton wearing ragged clothes.
- Despair Event Horizon: Went past it when he and Aesleith died. Realizing he could no longer return to his family and that his best friend was reduced to a bunch of ghostly fragments which he couldn't put back together, he just... gave up.
- Expy: Of Sans.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Lyra's responsible.
- The Gadfly: Loves picking up on both Teael and Pyrath.

But as it turned out, his new caretakers treated him much better than his supposed master did...
