    General Tropes 

Tropes that apply to the People's Republic of Sphelliyet as a whole:

  • Anti-Hero: Its leaders tend not to be nice people. The fact that the country was established by conquering a weakened country—that they'd just been helping a short while ago—should say something.
  • Ascended Extra: Many of the characters are either characters who were first introduced in short stories from the side series or appeared only briefly in the first series, but now play a larger role in the sequel.
  • Badass Army: The Azure Princess Mercenaries, which is precisely why Vois needed an alliance with them so badly.
  • Badass Crew: Everyone from the heart of the country—that is, Ryner, Ferris, Kiefer, Toale, and Vois—all get at least one moment in which they shine.
  • A Child Shall Lead Them: None of the three kings are older than 20.
  • Parental Abandonment
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: They consist mostly of exiles and traitors.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Mainly due to Vois, whom everyone outside of the Anti-Roland Coalition can't stand. Similarly, Vois's subordinates don't seem to like their new king—that isn't Vois—too much.
  • True Companions: Like Roland, this is averted. Sphelliyet can basically be divided into three factions: the Anti-Roland Coalition aka those loyal to Vois, the Azure Princess Mercenaries aka those loyal to Pia, and those loyal to Ryner, without much overlap in between.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to other countries, Sphelliyet is lacking in sheer numbers, and so has to make up for it through clever politics and strategy.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Kiefer is a traitor, Vois's was destroyed, Toale's was conquered by Roland, Pia and co. are Taboo Breakers, Ryner and Ferris are fugitives, etc. For many, Sphelliyet is all they have left.

    Kiefer Knolles 

Kiefer Knolles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kiefer_160.png
Voiced by: Fuyuka Oura (JP), Brina Palencia (EN)

An old friend of Ryner and Sion's, having gone to the same academy as them. She left Roland two years ago to travel the world.


    Toale Nelphi 

Toale Nelphi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toale_4795.png
Voiced by: Yūto Suzuki (JP), Todd Haberkorn (EN)

The grandson of the Emperor of Nelpha and potential heir to the throne, though Toale himself would rather have nothing to do with it.


  • Archnemesis Dad: To a degree after Roland invades Nelpha. While his father doesn't get the chance to do anything, Toale is rightfully afraid of the man sending assassins after him.
  • Artificial Limbs
  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses both his right arm and leg while protecting Kiefer from a Rule Fragment attack.
  • Badass Transplant: They can self-destruct, which can do a decent amount of damage.
  • Big Brother Instinct
  • Bookworm: Not to the same extent as Ryner, but it's mentioned that he hangs out at the library often and he knows the librarian quite well.
  • Born Unlucky: Ryner thinks this about him.
  • Break the Cutie: A mild example, in that he still stays fairly strong, but compare his first appearance to when he meets Ryner again. He's understandably exhausted, both physically and emotionally, and things never get truly better for him.
  • Broken Ace: Kind, smart, competent, and beloved by his people to the point where they regard him as their hope. This really wears down on him in the sequel.
  • The Chains of Commanding: This is precisely why he doesn't want to be king.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Shows up for a short while at the start of the series, while Ryner and Ferris stay over at his house, before disappearing from the picture once they leave. He then returns later with more significance when Roland invades Nelpha.
  • Disney Death
  • First-Name Basis: He drops the honorifics with Ryner once, as a sign that he finally trusts him.
  • Foil: As noted by Ryner, Toale's circumstances are very similar to Sion's, except Toale has no desire to become king.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He doesn't stay dead, but it's the thought that counts.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Easily one of the nicest people around. But he won't tolerate others messing with his people, and to Vois's surprise, he makes it clear that if it means protecting the Nelpha soldiers, he's willing to let Geihlficlant soldiers die in their place.
  • Heroic Bastard
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He dies from his injuries after shielding Kiefer—though ultimately subverted in that, again, he doesn't stay dead.
  • House Husband: Due to their dad being a dick and none of them being able to see their mothers, Toale's the sole guardian of his siblings.
  • Humble Hero: He doesn't see himself as the majestic prince everyone else sees him as or even as strong as he honestly is, after everything that he's endured.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: His people utterly adore him. It's not so great for him, though.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: And not a king, thanks.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He'd rather support Kiefer with Ryner than even try to pursue her.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: He admits that he should start wearing these if he wants to survive.
  • Martyr Without a Cause: Just a tad too self-sacrificial for his country, which Ryner verbally slaps him for.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Fourteen younger siblings, and that's only counting the illegitimate ones!
  • Modest Royalty: Just look at the above picture. Does he look like royalty to you?
  • Nice Guy
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He prevented the meaningless deaths of 10,000 soldiers... and effectively ruined his own life by thus becoming a threat in Roland's eyes and becoming the leader of the Nelphan forces, even if he didn't mean for either to happen.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Vois stops his breathing and pulse, thus only temporarily killing him off.
  • Only Sane Man: He shares this position with Ryner. Seen best before the fight between Gastark and Geihlficlant, where Vois, Ferris, and Kiefer are jokingly accusing one another of not being prepared, before Toale accepts the blame so that they can actually get down to business.
    Ryner: "It's good that someone's being serious."
  • Parental Abandonment: His dad kicked him and his many younger siblings out.
  • Promotion to Parent
  • Refusal of the Call: Again, he has no desire to be king, despite everyone else pushing him to fight for the throne.
  • Reluctant Ruler
  • Resigned to the Call: After his Refusal of the Call fails. He'll go out of his way to save the Nelphan people, knowing that he's the only one who can, but don't expect him to be energetic about it.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Royal Blood
  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: Tries to pull one off, except Ryner interferes. It's also debatable as to whether it would've even worked in the first place.
  • Supreme Chef: It comes with looking after fourteen younger siblings.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While not necessarily a full-fledged badass, he does go from being a civilian with no combat history in his debut to a Warrior Prince.
  • Trauma Conga Line: The first few volumes of the sequel are not kind to him.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Not only does he not hold a grudge against Sion, but he won't accept any apologies either. That said, part of it is that apologizing implies Sion believes what he did was wrong, which would then imply the Nelphan people died for nothing, making it something of an insult.
  • Warrior Prince: Eventually forced to become one.
  • The Wise Prince
  • The Wrongful Heir to the Throne: The Nelphan people see his father—the legitimate heir—as this and hope that Toale will inherit the throne instead. On the other hand, Toale sees himself as inadequate due to having been raised as a commoner.
