Main Characters

     Noir Stargazer
Noir is the only male in the picture.
The protagonist

  • Accidental Pervert: Invoked, Justified, Downplayed, and Deconstructed. The first time, Maria falls on him, due to her "Sixteenth Death" curse acting up while they were training. Afterward, Noir crafts a "lucky pervert" skill so he can soak up LP from simply walking around, until a gust of wind blows up the skirt of every woman in the area, including an octogenarian, thus making Noir Nerf the skill so it only triggers A.) Rarely, and B.) Outside combat. After all, tripping into a girl's chest while fighting a fire-breathing dragon could be a very bad thing.
  • Always Save the Girl: Combined with Chronic Hero Syndrome. There's yet another good reason why he's a Chick Magnet. He sees a cute, innocent girl in trouble, he will do anything in his power to come to her aid, even if the situation appears hopelessly suicidal.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: "Stargazer" is a name one would expect from a Space Opera.
  • Blessed with Suck: At the start, the "sage" ability he was born with was all but useless. In return for giving him super-human knowledge, it would give him massive debilitating migraines. Although Noir does ultimately wind up crafting a "headache resistance" skill to compensate, he can still be laid low if what he asks is too taxing.
  • Cast from Money: Noir eventually crafts a skill that allows him to convert gold to LP, but the conversion rate is so horrifically poor that he prefers to stick to getting LP from his numerous attractive love interests.
  • Chick Magnet: He's very attractive to women, and it's justified in that he's handsome, gentle, kind, and if you're a cute, innocent girl, he will move heaven and earth if need be to come to your aid.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Noir may have quite the imagination, even before getting his special skills from Olivia, but he would never, ever willingly take advantage of a woman without her explicit, freely-given, fully-informed, consent.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His name "Noir" literally means "Black," but he's a good and wholesome individual.
  • Harem Seeker: Justified. Since he gains the Life Energy he needs to keep living by engaging in erotic acts with the opposite sex, and the "diminishing rate of return" is steep when just playing around with the same girl over and over again, he needs a harem of beauties to keep stirring the pot.
  • Humble Hero: Praise makes him very uncomfortable.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: Justified. One of the ways he gains LP is by eating exotic dishes. This tickles his mother greatly considering she's a Cordon Bleugh Chef who likes to "experiment."
  • Imagination Based Super Power: His "create" skill allows him to create any skill he can imagine, if he's willing and able to pay the LP cost.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Dryad that looks like a child version of Emma in trouble, being attacked by a level 254 golden bee? Lure over a pack of 6 level 100 or so silver wolves and let them deal with it, killing whoever is left standing.
  • Mate or Die: While it hasn't reached quite that far, he must engage in erotic acts with members of the opposite sex to keep his LP total up because if his LP reaches zero, he dies. Even using too big a percentage of his LP at once leaves him visibly shaken.
  • Simple, yet Awesome: The skills he gains from Olivia, "Create", "Edit" and "Grant" are simple to implement but can be downright devastating in practice.

     Alice Stargazer
I'll always be here for you, big brother!
Noir's younger sister.
  • Big Brother Attraction: She wants very much for her relationship with Noir to be more than brother/sister. Noir is aware of it, but does his best to delude himself otherwise.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Despite being the younger sister, she's very possessive and protective of Noir.
  • Casual Kink: Noir finds himself liking it when she steps on him. How that came to be is anyone's guess.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: You wanna join Noir's harem? You got to pass her smell test first.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Later chapters reveal that she keeps her feet clean and sweet smelling in the unlikely event Noir develops some kind of foot fetish. Even Noir's Selective Obliviousness has problems tuning that out.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Played for laughs. In the omakes, when Maria was partnered up with Noir at the academy, in her classroom, she wakes up, voices concern that some other girl is trying to snatch Noir away, and then plops right back down to sleep. The teacher tells the rest of the class to leave her be because he's seen it way too often.
  • Teen Genius: She can, and does, get straight A's in school, despite sleeping through class.

     Emma Brightness
Noir's primary love interest.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Learns how Noir's power works when she off-handedly asked to have smaller breasts, and he granted her wish.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Grew up alongside Noir, openly asks him to kiss her, on the lips, and at the drop of a hat.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She may be resigned to the fact that Noir needs a harem to live, but she clearly does not like it and insists on being in first place.
  • Conflict Ball: Manga only. For no readily apparent reason, she snaps and runs off when she catches Noir helping Nell Overlock, and sees Nell's sister Leila Overlock thank him for his aid, asking if he'd be even the tiniest bit concerned if she were to go off and mess around with another guy. Noir is so stunned, he can't even react properly.
  • D-Cup Distress: Briefly. She complains about her breasts being too large and causing her back pain. When Noir asks if she'd like them smaller, and says yes, she's shocked and enraged when he complies, angrily demanding that he make them big again.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Golden haired blonde, Nice Girl.
  • Knife Nut: She prefers to fight with twin daggers. She only rarely uses other weapons.
  • Light Is Good: Her name "brightness" means light and she's a nice, upstanding, young girl.
  • Nice Girl: As long as you're not a pretty girl trying to take away her spot as Noir's number one, she's unflinchingly gentle and kind.

     Maria Fiana Albert
Noir, will you take my hand?
A daughter of a local duke that Noir meets upon entering the Hero Academy, and who seeks him out, to his shock.
  • Blue Blood: Daughter of a duke, but a nice and sweet girl.
  • The Chains of Commanding: She takes her duties as the duke's daughter seriously and cares deeply for her subjects.
  • Good Parents: Her parents are also fine, upstanding people, despite being dukes, the highest rank. They don't let something as trivial as title get in the way of Maria's social circles. To top it all off, they openly ship Maria and Noir together. The fact that he's directly responsible for breaking the lethal curse on her was more than good enough for them to consider him a future son-in-law.
  • I Owe You My Life: Thanks to Noir and Luna, she got to live past her sixteenth birthday.
  • The Mistress: Despite Noir being anything but monogamous, he prefers to do erotic stuff with Maria, away from the eyes of the rest of his harem, purely for the thrill of being secret lovers. She finds the idea charming, and happily plays along.
  • Rapunzel Hair: As seen in the page image, her hair easily reaches her hips.
  • Samaritan Relationship Starter: On her way to Hero Academy, she spots Noir take down a thief, who robbed an orphan child, with a custom "rock bullet." This is the primary reason she started being interested in him.
  • Secret Test of Character: The reason she approaches Noir in the Hero Academy is that she was watching from the shadows of the adventurer's guild, Odin, and witnessed how he carries himself. She'd rather hang out with a "beggar noble" Baronet who is sincere than high-ranking nobles who are only good for waving their titles around.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Due to the curse she was born with, her parents never told her "no" to anything. This is precisely why she's such an upstanding and outstanding individual.

     Luna Hiira
Curses are scary!
A powerful healer Noir recruits to help rescue Maria from the "sixteenth death" curse.
  • Cast from Lifespan: Like her mother, her curse breaking ability shaves away her lifespan in return for its use.
  • Cast from Money: Noir alters her skill to cost gold instead of lifespan, allowing her to rescue Maria without dying in the process.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Is half-elf. Her mother was full elf.
  • In the Blood: Her curse-breaking ability was inherited from her mother's side of the family.
  • Mage Marksman: Fights with a gun that shoots bullets made of magic.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother died due to using her curse-breaking ability too much.
  • The Rival: She wants to be Noir's number one love interest, usurping Emma. Emma is not amused.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Pink hair, nice girl.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Bubblegum pink.

A wager is a wager...
The receptionist Noir meets at the adventurer's guild and to whom he exclusively goes, by contract.
  • The Bet: Not believing that Noir is a disciple of Olivia, she bets that she will flip her skirt in his face if the "appraise" orb says he is, and he'd be banned if he's lying. When she finds out the truth, she not only flips her skirt, as promised, she bashfully says "I Love you, Noir."
  • Cassandra Truth: Inverted. She doesn't believe Noir is Olivia's disciple, and denies it strongly. At least until she gets hard evidence.
  • Entitled to Have You: Enforced. Noir's her exclusive adventurer! No other receptionist is to meet him, especially that ... Sylvia!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Is not only Luna's best friend, but sees nothing wrong with comforting the latter by nesting her head in her bosom.
  • Sex for Services: Downplayed but present. In exchange for Noir being her exclusive adventurer, she offers all sorts of erotic bonuses, in addition to the normal rewards, for a job well done on guild requests. It's a win-win as far as Noir is concerned.
  • Sexy Secretary: Sexy receptionist, close enough.

Let's be friends
A monster Noir befriends on the fifth level of the hidden dungeon.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He's been an incredibly lonely existence in the dungeon, and is desperate for company that doesn't immediately point swords at him. Vasiel, the elf, and Noir, are the only two out of 990,000 existences to do so.
  • It Can Think: Unlike all the other dungeon monsters, he actually can be reasoned with.
  • I Will Wait for You: Noir encountered him waiting for his friend Vasiel for 350 years. The poor elf had been turned into a zombie during that time. When Noir brings Vasiel back to him, he's very grateful.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Is viewed as such by the rest of society. Noir considers him a friend, peer, and equal.
  • Punny Name: The "Toru" in torumaru means "Tiger." He's a lion. So he's a lion named "Tiger."


     Olivia Servant
Hello again, Noir-kun
The woman trapped in the titular dungeon, and the one who gifted Noir with the LP consuming "Create", "Edit", and "Remove" skill.
  • Adaptation Expansion: The manga adds an even better reason for her to share her skills and wisdom with Noir. He's not the first to meet her and ask to be her apprentice. 200 years ago, before she became trapped in the dungeon, another boy, that was eerily similar to how Noir is in the present, came to her asking to be her apprentice, stalking her everywhere, never giving up. In resignation, she gave him a small tip to deal with "iron goblins" and forgot all about him. The boy took the advice to heart, saving the mayor's daughter, at the cost of his own life.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: In the original source, she gets trapped in the titular dungeon as the result of falling for Schmuck Bait by trying to open a treasure chest without checking for traps. In the manga, she winds up trapped because she won a life or death battle with a demon, and it cursed her in its death throes.
  • Adaptational Modesty: In the original source, she's buck naked, due to all her clothes having rotted away. In the manga, she wears a simple dress that somehow survived the ravages of time, and looks hardly practical for dungeon diving.
  • And I Must Scream: Chained to a dungeon wall for two centuries, and Noir is the first person she's seen in all that time.
  • The Atoner: In the manga, she's sharing her wisdom, and chose Noir to be her apprentice, not just because it's the only form of human contact she has, but because she deeply regrets not teaching a similar boy properly 200 years ago, before she became trapped in a dungeon, and the poor boy might have lived if she taught him better.
  • Blessed with Suck: No need for food, water, or worrying about her biological functions, but chained to a dungeon wall, starved for company. Fortunately, Noir came along...
  • Harem Seeker: Like Noir, she had a large harem of her own in her heyday, and for the same reason. She doesn't hesitate to boast about it, to Noir's chagrin.
  • Hero of Another Story: In her heyday, she was a powerful adventurer who founded the adventurer's guild, Odin, that Noir signs up with.
  • Sexy Mentor: Which she plays to the hilt.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Loves to tease, taunt, and sexually entice Noir every chance she gets.
  • The Tease: Constantly.

     Lenoir Blue Don
You! Where did you get this Death Reaper skull?
A rather uppity count who briefly joins Noir's party, alongside Emma, so the three of them could qualify for Hero Academy.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: Like most of the contenders, she bought the monster materials required for the entrance exam.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's rather rude and abrupt to Noir, like most nobles, but beneath it all has a genuinely decent personality.
  • Stealing the Credit: Justified. Noir gives her the credit for defeating the Death Reaper and collecting its materials, so he could hide the fact that he's dungeon diving in a hidden dungeon. She's genuinely grateful to him for it, and becomes much, much less vitriolic.

Maria's bodyguard.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Black hair, and very aloof, aside from her relationship with Maria. She becomes much nicer once Noir manages to save her mistress.
  • Can Not Keep A Secret: Blabbed Maria's entire backstory to Noir and company, while Maria was in the same room, when she thought Maria was unconscious, despite promising to keep it secret.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Maria.

     Eluna Stonegusu
Love my ass, don't you? Does it smell good?
Emma, Maria, and Noir's Academy instructor.
  • Berserk Button: Do NOT goof off in class, even if she tells you to take a break. She catches you, and consider yourself lucky to find yourself running laps around the entire academy until you drop.
  • Casual Kink: Her idea of "rewarding" students is to sit on them, as seen in the page image. Noir grows to like it...
  • Child Soldier: She started being a mercenary soldier at age 7!
  • Retired Badass: Former mercenary turned teacher.
  • Sergeant Rock: Her training method is harsh, but the adventuring world is harsher, and you need the skills she teaches you to live.
  • Sexy Mentor: Doesn't mind using her sex-appeal to motivate the male students. The female students tend to get put off by it.
  • Stern Teacher: Messing around in her class is her Berserk Button and the consequences are seldom pretty.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Noir goes and gets erotic "rewards" from her, behind everyone's back, from time to time.

Thank you, Noir! Thank you very much!
A dryad Noir meets in the dungeon's 8th floor.
  • Blessed with Suck: Being a dryad gives her a long life, and leaves her humanoid form ignored by the monsters of the eighth floor, allowing her to explore every nook and cranny, while laughing and playing to her heart's content. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of being bound to a tree at the center of the dungeon floor, and if the three dies, so does she. She also feels, as pain, any damage done to said tree.
  • Damsel in Distress: Noir encounters her because she asks for help dealing with a "Golden Bee" monster that stung her tree at least twice a day to suck out her life for its own ends.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn't just look like a younger version of Emma, she thinks like one. As such, she doesn't comprehend why crawling into a hole in a way that allows a guy to see up your dress is a bad idea.
  • I Owe You My Life: Out of gratitude for saving her life, she gives Noir some very valuable rewards, and shows him the stairs to the ninth floor. Although Noir likes the reward, her smile is her greatest treasure to him.
  • When She Smiles: Oh, her smile is precious, on either side of the fourth wall.
  • You Remind Me of X: She's a spitting image of Emma when Emma was younger. Initially, this made Noir suspect that she was gleaming the image from his mind.

It's not cheating if you don't get caught! BWAHAHAHAHA!
Lola's rival receptionist.

  • Bad Boss: Unlike Lola, she does not care about her adventurers' well being in the slightest. Half-way through the contest, she boasts about having a much higher score and then brags that Lola's not desperate enough, showcasing a group of adventurers so exhausted that it looks like a gentle breeze would kill them.
  • The Bet: After a great deal of goading, to the point Lola's so angry, she has to be physically restrained from punching Sylvia in the face, she puts forward a bet that if her pool of adventurers can beat Lola's, then Noir would become another one of her adventurers (read submissive sex-toys), with Lola's blessing. Lola's victory would only be a promise that Sylvia would keep her hands off Lola's adventurers from then on. If Lola wasn't too angry to think straight, it's unlikely she would have agreed to it.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: All smiles in public, sheer terror behind closed doors.
  • Casual Kink: Among her titles in the manga are "Sadist", "Dominate Person", and her "Golden Shower" skill is Rank A.
  • Loophole Abuse: She steals adventurers from Lola's pool, and the adventurer's accomplishments, purely to raise her own rank, by bribing them with the gifts she's supposed to offer her own adventurers for a job well-done, but since Lola has no proof, continuously gets away with it and rubs Lola's nose in it.
  • Made Out to Be a Jerkass: What she loves to do to Lola. She steals the accomplishments of Lola's adventurers, boasts how much "better" a receptionist she is, puts down Lola about it, and then acts like the wounded party if Lola so much as complains.
  • Really Gets Around: She has so much sex, her "Cow Girl" and "Doggy Style" skills have reached Rank A. In story, this means she has a lot of bed partners.
  • Refuge in Audacity: She is completely shameless in provoking Lola. After Lola wins the competition, she goes and tempts Noir, right in front of her, and everyone else, by dropping an erotic "reward ticket" right in his hands. Noir's too busy overheating to react.
  • Smug Snake: Loves to flaunt her "accomplishment" of poaching Lola's adventurer pool for herself, confident that Lola can't prove it.
  • The Vamp: As far as she's concerned, sex exists for one thing, and only one thing, to be used as a weapon to browbeat and crush any enemies or rivals. The thought that sex could be mutually enjoyable experience is a joke only a Naïve Newcomer would believe.

     Leila Overlock
Watch out, Noir. I'm coming!
The most promising member of Odin's rival guild, Ramuh.
  • The Ace: The most promising of Ramuh's adventurers, at rank A in martial arts and "Magic Fist."
  • Bare Your Midriff: Abs completely exposed.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Don't mess with her little brother, Nell.
  • Canon Foreigner: She and her guild don't even exist in the source material, at least not what's currently released and translated. Her guild launched her at Noir out of jealousy at his achievements.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: If not for her guild and Noir's being rivals, she wouldn't have any issue hanging out with him, and she's a good, kind woman who happens to be blonde.
  • Shipper on Deck: Amazingly, she's a Emma+Noir shipper.
  • Spirited Competitor: Fights for the thrill of the challenge.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: She does.

     Nell Overlock
Alice, is.. is he your boyfriend?
The younger brother of Leila Overlock

     Ghijis Ovatria
Shake my hand, I dare ya! (Snerk)
A guy who, along with a gang, loves to bully Nell, and woe to whoever comes to Nell's aid.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Nell is way stronger than him and his whole gang. If not for Nell's shyness and moral fiber, he'd be cleaning the floor with them on a regular basis.
  • Fat Bastard: Overweight and a major jerk.
  • The Jinx: Exploited. If he touches you with his left hand, he can inflict a permanent "Misfortune" debuff on you at will. At least until Noir came along and "fixed" that.
  • Mugging the Monster: When Noir outed him, he fired a "rock bullet" at Noir, trying to bully him into silence. Noir retaliated with a "Rock Bullet 40" which is a bigger, heavier, and faster version, not only deflecting the original attack, but hitting his stomach so hard he was forced to vomit by the impact.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When they realized they didn't have a prayer of beating Noir in a straight up fight, he and his gang fled the scene, promising to behave. Noir happily brags that they won't be able to do the "misfortune" mischief again, ever.

     Rommy Brightness
Be Emma's Knight, Noir!
Emma's mother.

How well does it match the trope?
