    In General 

Tropes that apply to the Roland Empire as a whole:

  • Anti-Villain: Once Sion betrays Ryner, the Roland army consequently becomes this.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Nobility everywhere tend to be pretty bad, but Roland's got some of the worst.
  • Asshole Victim: Are you really going to feel sorry for the nobles?
  • Badass Army: Special mention goes to the force that worked together to put Sion on the throne, with notable members including Claugh, Calne, Luke, and Miller.
  • Badass Family: They've got two: the Eris clan, otherwise known as the clan in charge of protecting the royal family, and the Silwelt clan, their spear (and less respected) equivalent.
  • Bio-Augmentation: Roland was once infamous for running human experiments in order to produce Super Soldiers.
  • Child Soldiers: Roland loves them.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Many of them get chapters or short stories in side series explaining their pasts.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Whoo boy. The entire cast of the series counts as one, but Roland in particular is a breeding ground for issues.
  • La Résistance: During the two-year timeskip, a fair number of characters were part of one, led by Miller.
  • Orphanage of Fear: They've had a few, which were secretly hellish training institutions.
  • Reverse Mole: In order to start the revolution that made Sion king, various characters had to plot from within the army.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Having seen the horrors of war repeatedly, most of them are pretty desensitized by now.
  • Super Soldier: The result of the aforementioned Bio-Augmentation.
  • Training from Hell: If they're a named character and are a badass, then more likely than not, they've gone through this.
  • Tragic Villain: Members of the royal family and the Eris clan, while frequently overlapping with Asshole Victim, ultimately classify due to their descent into insanity typically being due to supernatural influences. Lieral speculated once that the entire country could be cursed, given how baffling it is that there's just so much corruption.
  • True Companions: The Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squad are very tight-knit. Averted otherwise; Roland has enough internal conflict, both on a large scale (primarily with Estabul, its territory) and on a small scale that it's sometimes amazing that it hasn't fallen apart yet.
  • Tyke-Bomb: Any top badass has likely been training from a very young age.
  • Villain Protagonist: The country becomes this by the sequel.

    Lucile Eris 

Lucile Eris
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Jerry Jewell (EN)

Sion's bodyguard. The head of the distinguished sword clan of Eris and Ferris and Iris' older brother. He killed his parents to save Ferris and become the head. Due to the nature of his powers, he currently cannot step foot outside of Roland.

  • Aloof Ally: He'll help out Sion as part of his duties as his guard, but isn't exactly the most supportive ally (or above occasionally leaving Sion to fend for himself to prove his worth).
  • Anti-Hero: Seems to have ended up somewhere in this spectrum.
  • The Chooser of The One: One of the Eris house's duties is to test the king and see if he can handle the Mad Hero.
  • Don't Tell Ferris: He really would rather Ferris be clueless to everything he's done to protect her.
  • The Dreaded: Even among Sion's allies.
  • Emotionless Boy: Used to be one, and in a way, he's still one and even more so than Ferris.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Somewhat of an in-universe example. Aside from Sion, nobody quite knows what Lucile's agenda is, but grudgingly accept his role as the king's guard mostly because no one can defeat him in any case.
  • Extreme Doormat: Like Ferris, he used to be one. Then she was born and he started to gain his own will.
  • Freudian Excuse: The Eris household was not a nice place to grow up in for Relx/Lucile. By his family's standards, which essentially demanded sociopathy, the most abnormal thing about Lucile is that he even developed any sense of humanity, thanks to Ferris.
  • The Gadfly: He's fond of teasing his sisters and Sion.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: After making amends with Ferris, he officially becomes Ryner's ally, albeit a very begrudging one.
  • In the Blood: There's also the influence of the Eris Demon, making it more complicated than just genetics, but this would've been the case if Lucile/Relx hadn't gone above and beyond to defy this.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: What seems to be his real personality beneath his Faux Affably Evil surface, even if the heart of gold applies mainly to Ferris.
  • Messianic Archetype: He's determined to be a martyr for his family, and on top of that, being the other half of the Lonesome Demon, he's to meet the same fate as Ryner, as noted in Ryner's section.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Not above invading Sion's, at least.
  • Nominal Hero: He cares about... Ferris. That's pretty much it.
  • Not So Stoic: As he's usually in complete control of the situation, he starts losing his cool whenever he isn't.
  • Pet the Dog: In spite of how... screwed up he is, he does have his moments with Ferris.
  • Reincarnation: He's Ryner's other half.
  • Sanity Slippage: He was a rather screwed up and hollow child, but not exactly insane. Then he met Lieral, and things went downhill from there.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Killed his parents in order to stop their Attempted Rape on Ferris.
  • Shrouded in Myth: As very few characters have actually met him, his existence is more of a rumour than anything. In his case, however, he really is as terrifying as the rumours state.
  • Stepford Smiler: As Iris puts it, the fact that he's always smiling is pretty scary.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Due to a variety of nullifying abilities, his Healing Factor, and ability to appear and disappear at will, he's nearly untouchable. That said, he has no reason to involve himself with anything unless it concerns Sion or Ferris.
  • Tears of Blood: When meeting the Eris demon for the first time.
  • Tough Love: He's strict when it comes to his sisters' training—Iris complains that that's all Lucile ever wants her to do, and even Ferris starts to sweat when Lucile suggests that she hasn't been training enough.
  • Tranquil Fury: When attacking Froaude for trying to kill Ferris to the point where it's hard to tell if he's even angry (and he claims not to be, at least).
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: He was nicer as a kid, at least, but no less casual at the thought of killing others. For starters, him plotting to kill his parents started several years before he actually did it.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: His Stealth Hi/Bye tendencies or appearing as a disembodied voice. Ferris is entirely used to it by now, Sion eventually adjusts as well, and Ryner's left to wonder where the heck that voice is coming from.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Lieral's, though in a strange variation in that he knew Lieral was manipulating him when he accepted his proposal, but doesn't remember for the next several years due to Lieral wiping his memory of their meeting.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Manages to combine this with Troubling Unchildlike Behavior. Lieral even noted that back then that he seemed kind—and so he'd probably suffer for that.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Like brother, like sister. In his case, though, Lieral was the one who explained it to him.
  • The Worf Effect: Effortlessly beats most characters... except for Lieral, Milk Ephillet, and Remurus.

    Iris Eris 

Iris Eris
Voiced by: Tomosa Murata (JP), Monica Rial (EN)

Ferris and Lucile's little sister. Acts as a messenger between Ryner & Ferris and Sion.

  • Only Mostly Dead: Froaude just about succeeds in killing her, but Lucile revives her from the brink of death.
  • Parental Neglect: Compared to Ferris, who was abused physically, their parents ignored Iris entirely.
  • Undying Loyalty: She utterly adores Ferris, and apparently has no reservations about abandoning her home to follow her when Ferris and Ryner becomes fugitives.

    Claugh Klom 

Claugh Klom
Voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka (JP), Mike McFarland (EN)

Sion's right hand man, as one of his longest standing subordinates. Currently in the rank of Field Marshal, he's Roland's most famous soldier and popular among the Roland army. Has a romantic relationship with Lady Noa Ehn.

  • Anti-Villain: After Ryner ends up against Roland. He'll massacre the Nelpha people as ordered, but is by no means happy about it and, to an extent, is willing to help Ryner out.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Tiir rips off and devours his arm.
  • Artificial Limbs: He replaces his arm with a prosthetic after Tiir rips it off.
  • Badass Transplant: Even though he has a prosthetic, he can still kick major ass.
  • Bastard Understudy: A heroic version towards Count Emirel who was, well, a douche, to put it lightly.
  • Benevolent Boss: Is willing to die for his subordinates if need be. They're just as willing to die for him.
  • Best Served Cold: He waited just a bit too long—Luke beat him to it. He also fails to exact revenge against Tiir, who proceeds to do even worse and completely devour his arm this time.
  • The Big Guy: Sion's strongman.
  • Bio-Augmentation: His mother was experimented on to produce a child like him, who is resistant to curses.
  • Child by Rape: With him being the child, as his mother was experimented on and raped—see Bio-Augmentation.
  • Child Soldier: Much like many of the other characters, he basically grew up in the military.
  • Childhood Friends: With Luke, though Claugh would deny it if you asked.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Before meeting Noa, he's not above making the occasional lewd comment. Once Noa enters the picture, however, he's a gentleman.
  • Declining Promotion: He really, really doesn't want to be a Field Marshal, as it involves more paperwork and less field work than the lower rankings. Unlike the other examples on this page, however, nobody cares and so he ends up in the position.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: Was one when young, seeing as how he couldn't just tell the Emirel Private Forces, "Hey, I know what you're up to and I want to kill you all."
  • Dissonant Serenity: He's had his moments, most prominently during the incident in which he met Luke.
  • The Dreaded: It comes with being one of Roland's top and most reknowned soldiers.
  • Fingerless Gloves: That he keeps destroying.
  • Foil: To Luke. See Luke's section for more info.
  • Four-Star Badass: It's even noted on a few occasions that with his ranking, Claugh doesn't actually need to be on the front lines, but he chooses to be anyway.
  • Genius Bruiser: While called a muscled idiot and the like by others, he's also a magic genius and was rather studious as a child.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: He and Luke occasionally have shades of this, especially in The Legend of the Fallen Dark Hero, though even in the main storyline, they tend to mention/think of each other often.
  • Hidden Weapons: His Emirel Private Forces uniform involved many, as revealed in a design sketch, with most of them up his sleeves.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: As a child, thanks to his mother's dying words.
  • Lady and Knight: The Knight to Noa's Lady. Lampshaded by her when she comments that the knight's duty is to save the Damsel in Distress.
  • Little Mister Badass: Effortlessly caught an arrow in mid-air—and he was five. Despite being a kid with no training whatsoever, he was confident he could take down a group of bandits, and while we didn't get to see him try, that might not have been overconfidence on his part.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: He doesn't necessarily like all of what Sion does, but he does understand his reasons for it and remains genuinely loyal in spite of it all. Subverted, though, in that, again, he does understand Sion's reason for it—and so if Sion ever stops behaving reasonably, then this trope may no longer apply.
  • Nothing Up My Sleeve: See Hidden Weapons.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Back during his days with the Emirel Private Forces.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: See Parental Abandonment. He was also determined to validate his mother's existence by proving that he was a "special child" as she'd claimed.
  • The Paragon: During the revolution, he managed to inspire much of the enemy forces to believe that Roland could truly change and to defect to his side. Points for making it a (would-be) dying speech too.
  • Parental Abandonment: His mother was killed when he was young, prompting him to spend a large portion of his life plotting to kill the Emirel Private Forces in revenge.
  • Red Baron: Crimson Finger Claugh. Later, The Black Hand Death God.
  • Rescue Romance: With Noa.
  • Revenge: Plotted this against Count Emirel as a child. In the present, he intends to exact revenge against Tiir for wrecking his arm in the past.
  • Reverse Mole: His intentions by staying with the Emirel Private Forces, though it's brought to an end once Emirel dies.
  • Right Hand of Doom: His magic.
  • Saved by Canon: Appears to die in The Legend of the Fallen Dark Hero, which takes place before the main series, but given that he's still up and kicking...
  • Sempai/Kohai: He's Calne's senpai, having been a member of the Emirel Private Forces for longer than him and his superior in fighting.
  • Sole Survivor: Of Rei Stokkart's experiment when he was five, along with Luke.
  • Supporting Leader: During the climax of the revolution, while Sion was dealing with the king, it was Claugh out at the frontlines, dealing with the majority of the actual warfare.
  • Terror Hero: A Type 3. He likes to scare his opponents into surrendering by using his reputation or demonstrating why he has such a reputation.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: He was bit too casual as a child about the idea of killing others.
  • Tsundere: He shows a bit of this towards Luke, exemplified during their reunion where he was slightly glad to see that Luke had survived... and then annoyed over being glad.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Calne. Additionally, while he and Luke don't get to interact much in the present, they were this while growing up—understandable, seeing as how it's Luke.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Had no problems with beating up the then 10-year-old Calne and spared him primarily because Calne could be useful.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: He tries to do this when up against Tiir... before Bayuuz carries him off.

    Shuss Shirazz 

Shuss Shirazz
Voiced by: Junji Majima (JP), Sean Teague (EN)

Claugh's vice-officer, and long-time friend and subordinate who fought alongside him during the revolution.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the anime, his hair is more of a brown-ish shade, with his eyes the same colour, compared to the novels where his eyes are green and his hair is blond.
  • Alliterative Name: Shuss Shirazz
  • Anti-Villain: In the same manner as Claugh, of course. Shuss remains civil with Ryner, even warning him on Claugh's orders about what Sion's up to and that he should run while he can.
  • Berserk Button: Insulting Claugh. Subverted, though, as he was faking it as part of his plan.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Generally polite and civil, but don't you dare insult Claugh—or at least he pretends this is the case.
  • Declining Promotion: So that he can continue to work under Claugh.
  • Distressed Dude: Briefly held hostage against Claugh by Ryner and Ferris.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: During the climax of the revolution.
  • Guile Hero: His main moment of glory demonstrates his ability as this.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Bayuuz would claim this to be the case, at least.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: In the novels, he has long hair.
  • More Hero Than Thou: He informs Claugh that the reason he has to always stay by the man is because he knows Claugh would throw away his life, and so Shuss has to be there to do it for him at least once.
  • Number Two: He is Claugh's right hand man.
  • Parental Abandonment: His family's explicitly said to be dead.
  • The Reliable One: For Claugh, who notes that Shuss could stand to be a little less serious about his duties.
  • Satellite Character: To Claugh.
  • Subordinate Excuse: As commented on, Shuss should be around the same ranking as Calne, but he only wants to serve directly under Claugh.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Claugh. Virtually the only thing Shuss has done outside of Claugh's wishes and that was unrelated to Claugh's well-being was preferring to follow Sion over Miller, and even then, he would've ultimately gone with Claugh had Claugh chosen not to go with him first.

    Calne Kaiwel 

Calne Kaiwel
Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP), Chris Burnett (EN)

Sion's left hand man, due to having served him during the revolution, and currently holds the position of Major General. Deals with domestic affairs.

  • Anchored Ship: With Eslina, thanks to his attachment problems.
  • Bastard Understudy: Like Claugh, he was one to Count Emirel, but especially one to Rei, who was bragging to Claugh about how Calne was her greatest student... right before he knocked her out.
  • Best Served Cold: Like Claugh above, he tried—but not only did Claugh beat him in the fight for the 'right' to kill their mutual target, Luke beat them both anyway.
  • Bishōnen: The voice and looks may make you think he's a girl early on. He's not.
  • Child Soldier: Same story as Claugh.
  • Dissonant Serenity: During his Face Death with Dignity moment. He's still as light-hearted as ever while locked up in a prison and deprived of food and water.
  • Distressed Dude: He's eventually captured by the Remurus Empire.
  • Emotionless Boy: Comes across as this as a child, though it's all a front.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Intends to do this when a captive in the Remrus Empire, to the point where he refuses to think about anything that might make him want to keep on living.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Fully believes that Eslina deserves better than a playboy and soldier like him, and so despite being aware of her feelings and liking her back, he would rather have her find someone else.
  • Little Mister Badass: While he got his ass kicked by Claugh, he was one of Emirel's best soldiers by the age of ten.
  • Not Afraid to Die: He very much tries to be this when captured in the Remrus Empire and believing that they're leaving him to starve to death.
  • Parental Abandonment: According to him, he doesn't even remember his parents.
  • Revenge: Like Claugh, he was aiming for this against Count Emirel.
  • Reverse Mole: Again, in the same situation as Claugh.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Considers Claugh (and, to a lesser extent, Luke) as his senpai.
  • Shipping Torpedo: Thinks that Claugh should either marry Noa and retire from being a soldier or break up with her (and since Claugh's still needed in the army, the latter's more plausible). It has nothing to do with them personally, but Calne's belief that soldiers shouldn't get into committed relationships.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He was reputed amongst the Emirel Private Forces to be superior to Claugh, which Claugh then proved to be untrue when they actually met.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Even though he argues with Claugh, they're still friends.

    Fiole Folkal 

Fiole Folkal
Voiced by: Miyu Irino (JP), Greg Ayres (EN)

A commoner whom Sion hires as his secretary after helping him save his sister. He idolizes Sion.

  • Despair Event Horizon: Nearly crosses this after failing to save Eslina, but Sion stops him.
  • Dies Wide Open: After his death, his eyes remain open.
  • Driven to Suicide: After his failed assassination attempt, he requests that Sion, whom he believes to be an assassin, to kill him, as he no longer sees a point in living. Fortunately, Sion obviously doesn't comply.
  • Face Death with Dignity: His reaction when Klausberr and the assassins enter his room? Smile and comment on how Sion's going to blame himself for this.
  • Go Out with a Smile: [In the novels, as he's reassured by the thought that his sister will be fine in a country where Sion is the king.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He has difficulty letting go of his status as a commoner and thus the notion that someone of his standing doesn't deserve happiness.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He's very, very grateful to Sion, shall we say. See: his letter to Eslina, half of which is him gushing over Sion.
  • I Owe You My Life: To Sion, for saving Eslina and providing a commoner like him with opportunities he never had before.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Fiole hints that he wouldn't mind Sion marrying Eslina one day, averting this trope himself. Calne, on the other hand, believes in this, as one of the many reasons why he won't pursue Eslina.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: It's noted that Eslina is the sole reason Fiole was able to move on from their parents' deaths, hence his significant attachment to her.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents died in the war years ago, leaving him and Eslina to grow up in an orphanage.
  • Posthumous Character: In the novels, where he only has one scene before dying. Any other scene and his first meeting with Sion are either flashbacks or revealed in the short stories later on.
  • The Reliable One: Sion even notes that Claugh and Calne could take a page out of Fiole's book.
  • Revenge by Proxy: He's the proxy.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Though he's by no means forgotten and is often fondly remembered by those who knew him, particularly as a reminder to Sion not to overwork, lest "Fiole up in heaven" get worried.
  • Suicide by Cop: Attempts this with Sion, but Sion refuses.
  • Too Happy to Live: He'd finally gained hope for a future after meeting Sion—and then, well...

    Eslina Folkal 

Eslina Folkal
Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu (JP), Alexis Tipton (EN)

As the younger sister of Fiole Folkal, she decides to work for Sion, grateful for all that he's done for her brother, and becomes Calne's assistant.

  • Dogged Nice Girl: Towards Calne.
  • Girl Next Door: She isn't Childhood Friends with Calne, but this is her image. As Sion notes, she's probably not without want for makeup and the like, but is too responsible for extravagance.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: A non-romantic one, regarding Fiole. She copes with his death quite well, much to Sion's surprise.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Fiole, who was just about ready to give up on life when he couldn't save her.
  • The Reliable One: Like brother, like sister.
  • The Stoic: Not as a whole—she's generally fairly cheerful—but she's noted to have cried very few times in her entire life, and even potentially devastating news might not appear to move her, to the point where Sion initially thinks her attitude to be impossible. She's really just that strong.
  • Tsundere: Towards Calne.

    Miran Froaude 

Miran Froaude
Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (JP), J. Michael Tatum (EN)

One of Sion's more recently hired subordinates, currently a Lieutenant General, who often uses more underhanded and immoral means to accomplish his tasks. Nevertheless, he is very loyal to Sion, whom he views as his ideal king.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Lucile cuts his arm off during a fight, though Froaude easily reattaches it using the powers of his ring. This happens twice, and for the same reasons.
  • Casting a Shadow: His shadow beasts.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: In blatant foreshadowing, he appears a few times in the anime, watching Sion from the shadows, before properly making his introduction.
  • Dark Is Evil/Dark Is Not Evil: Played with in the case of he and his Shadow Beasts.
  • Enfant Terrible: Killed off his adoptive family so that his foster father could become the head. His father is understandably shocked when Froaude tells him this.
  • Evil Counterpart: He has a counterpart in Gastark's Lir Orla. Both are Sarcastic Devotees who operate in the shadows and do their respective king's wetwork using a ring of power. Which one of them is the evil counterpart and which one is the good counterpart is up in the air, given the moral ambiguity of the series.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Kills his adopted father.
  • Ultimate Job Security: He constantly commits absolutely heinous acts on his own initiative, rather than Sion's orders. However, he keeps his job because he's just that good at it.

    Noa Ehn 

Noa Ehn
Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi (JP), Colleen Clinkenbeard (EN)

The princess of Estabul. After a failed rebellion against Roland, she becomes the main source of stability between Roland and Estabul's relationship.

  • Damsel in Distress: Captured by Froaude in her debut, nearly raped and killed in her second appearance as her attackers held her servants hostage.
  • Damsel out of Distress: In her first captive moment, rather than have Claugh fight to save her and risk his death, she instead convinces Froaude on her own to spare her life.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: After everything goes wrong for her, another bomb is dropped on her: her closest confidant is a traitor and the one responsible for all this.
  • The Gadfly: Just watch her troll Claugh.
  • Lady and Knight: The Lady to Claugh's Knight.
  • Out of Focus: Given that most of the sequel takes place outside of Roland and Noa has no reason to leave Roland, she's been largely absent after the first series.

    Milk Callaud 

Milk Callaud
Voiced by: Saki Fujita (JP), Jamie Marchi (EN)

A girl from the same orphanage as Ryner. Now a lieutenant and the captain of the Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squadron, she's under orders to apprehend Ryner. She's also the reincarnation of a Goddess, otherwise known as Milk Ephillet.

  • A-Cup Angst: In a joke 4koma, it's implied that she's jealous of Noa's rather large bust.
  • Abusive Parents: Her noble foster parents are not exactly nice people.
  • Action Girl: She's usually too busy being comic relief in how hilariously bad she is at capturing Ryner, but she can hold her own in a serious fight.
  • All-Loving Hero: She doesn't quite love everyone, but she seems utterly incapable of hatred, even towards her Abusive Parents, the Orphanage of Fear she came from, or her Goddess side.
  • Bad Liar: She didn't eat any cake! Really!
  • Death Seeker: After nearly crossing the Despair Event Horizon, she was ready to die until Ryner chewed her out for it.
  • Defusing The Tykebomb: A variation, in that Milk doesn't need defusing, per se, but her team works hard to give her the childhood she never had and the chance to be a normal girl.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Came close to crossing this during her childhood, but Ryner saved her from it.
  • Devoted to You: She is, essentially, the center of her subordinates' world. It helps that brainwashing is involved.
  • Extreme Doormat: Was one for her foster family.
  • Family of Choice: With the rest of the Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squadron.
  • Femininity Failure: She feels like this is the case, at least. After wearing military uniforms and training outfits for so long, she can't see herself as pretty in dresses and the like.
  • God in Human Form: Though the human Milk is still her own entity, rather than being just the Goddess Milk in human form.
  • Motor Mouth: Likely due to the fact that she spent most of her life not being able to talk freely, she can be pretty chatty at times.
  • Older Than They Look: She's actually in her late teens, despite her childish appearance.
  • Overranked Soldier: She hasn't even graduated from officer academy when Sion promotes her straight to lieutenant. Milk herself is the most shocked over this, though Sion does have his reasons.
  • Parental Abandonment: Came from the same orphanage as Ryner, so her blood parents presumably are either dead or left her. Her foster parents kick the bucket too.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She's rather sheltered and therefore tends to be naive and childish, but she's noted to have done very well in officer academy and is quick to realize when her team is hiding things from her.
  • Sole Survivor: When Ryner first went berserk, back when they were kids—she was the only one in the group who survived, due to being the one who brought him back to normal before he could kill her.
  • Stepford Smiler: At times, though she does remain genuinely optimistic in spite of her past.
  • The Un-Favourite: What with being the adopted child who exists only to serve as a soldier and make her family look good.

    Luke Stokkart 

Luke Stokkart
Voiced by: Satoshi Hino (JP), Mike Turner (EN)

A member of the Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squadron. Despite being only a sergeant, he's one of Sion's longstanding subordinates alongside Claugh and Calne.

  • Anti-Villain: He can be considered one in his and Claugh's first meeting, and then he's one again in Remrus's tower. See Hero Antagonist for more details regarding the second one.
  • Awesome by Analysis: He could tell that a group of people had been trained in Roland just by the way they moved.
  • Becoming the Mask: He's been aware of Milk's brainwashing from the start and stayed by her side in case he would one day have to kill her. In the end, though, he seems to genuinely care for her on some level—which should be impossible for him and which he embraces.
  • Berserk Button: Mess with his 'family' at your own risk.
  • Best Served Cold: After waiting for 12+ years, he kills Count Emirel.
  • Bio-Augmentation: He has a magic circle on his brain that grants him high intelligence, courtesy of the Emirel Private Forces.
  • Child Soldier: Like Calne and Claugh, whom he's known since he was young.
  • Childhood Friends: He and Claugh were friends ever since they were young.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He generally doesn't snark unless he's being passive-aggressive, but when he does, he's a master at it.
  • Declining Promotion: Staying off the radar suits him better, and he likes working under Miller.
  • Hero Antagonist: Upon realizing that either Sion or Ryner might have to die in order for the world to be saved, Luke makes a serious attempt to do so in Remrus's tower, though with Claugh/Peria/Zohra getting in his way, he ultimately decides to see if they can Take a Third Option instead.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Has some shades of this with Claugh. Particularly once it's revealed that Claugh is perhaps one of the very few people Luke honestly cares about.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: This desire is why he conditioned himself to behave normally, as he wanted to be able to fit in and connect with 'ordinary' humans.
  • Insufferable Genius: Not nearly as bad as Vois or the Azure Princess Mercenaries, but he's very smart and he knows it.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Considering how ineffective he and his team were in capturing Ryner, people likely weren't expecting him to hold his own against Froaude.
  • Little Miss Badass: A gender-flipped version; back then, he could even defeat Claugh.
  • Locked into Strangeness: His white hair isn't natural, but rather a side effect of the magic circle on his brain.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Subverted. He comes across as this initially, but while he likes Sion, he also states that he'll kill him if he ever loses his way and becomes like the previous kings of Roland.
  • Razor Floss: His Latsel Thread can cut through anything.
  • Revenge: Yes, Luke also wanted Count Emirel dead.
  • The Rival: To Claugh in The Legend of the Fallen Dark Hero.
  • Saved by Canon: Like Claugh, he nearly dies in the climax of The Legend of the Fallen Dark Hero.
  • Sole Survivor: Along with Claugh when he was young, during an experiment in which everyone was slaughtered—though he knew that would happen and was counting on it.
  • The Spock: Despite surface appearances, Lieral believes that he's this at heart as, due to a military experiment, he should lack the emotions that would affect his judgment. Ultimately subverted, however—see Becoming the Mask above.
  • Stepford Smiler: Being near emotionless, he's just learned how to react 'normally' according to the situation (or sometimes, at least), meaning that his expressions are a lie.
  • Subordinate Excuse: Despite his skill, he prefers to work under Miller and Milk.
  • Survivor Guilt: From the above incident mentioned under Sole Survivor. He could've saved everyone, though it would've ultimately been rendered pointless, which he knew but still felt guilty over.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Luke as a five-year-old? Pretty similar to Luke as a twenty-five-year-old, actually.
  • Tyke Bomb: Though in his case, he faked his death and ran away to avoid becoming this.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Milk. The fact that he's emotionless and the truth of her brainwashing complicate this, and Luke knows that it likely wasn't originally of his own will, but regardless, he admits that she means more to him than the world.
  • The Unfettered: He's shown several shades of this, devoting his life to cleansing the corruption in Roland, and as mentioned under The Spock, Lieral believes him to be this. As also mentioned, Luke happily subverts this in the end.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Claugh, though more vitriolic on Claugh's part than Luke's.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Struggles with this, as he's not sure if, given the magic circle on his brain, he's actually capable of genuine affection.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Like Sion above, he does mean entirely well, but is definitely not above resorting to questionable methods if that's what it takes to change the world.
  • Wild Card: Because he lacks emotions, he's not genuinely loyal to anyone for the most part and instead works towards a greater good for all.

Lear Rinkal / Moe & Lach Velariore
Lear: Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (JP), Josh Grelle (EN)
Moe: Voiced by: Atsushi Abe (JP), Orion Pitts (EN)
Lach: Voiced by: Hisafumi Oda (JP), David Trosko (EN)

The other three members of Milk's team, all of whom also served under Miller during the revolution.

  • Almighty Janitor: While not quite a badass like Luke, Lear's more competent than he seems.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Much like Luke, Lear doesn't take kindly to people messing with his team. See: attacking Calne and threatening to kill Eslina when his team went missing and not hesitating to stab Lieral when he threatened Milk.
  • Happily Adopted: Given how caring their foster parents seem to have been, Lach and Moe were presumably this.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: When Milk, after learning about the human experimentation, asks where they stand, they reply that they always stand by His Majesty's side.
  • Subordinate Excuse: Like Luke, Lear could likely be of a higher ranking if he wanted, but is too loyal to Miller (and Milk) for that.

    Rahel Miller 

Rahel Miller
Voiced by: Yasunori Masutani (JP), Christopher Sabat (EN)

A Major and the commanding officer of the Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squadron. Reputed as a genius, he was an integral factor in Sion's revolution.

  • Cool Old Guy: Not exactly old, as he's only in his thirties, but still older than most of the cast.
  • Declining Promotion: He can accomplish more if eyes aren't on him all the time.
  • Extreme Doormat: Pretended to be one for the nobles.
  • Full-Name Basis: He even calls his wife by her full name. Namely because he's still trying to get used to the idea, having never expected to get married with the way Roland was.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Pretended to be completely loyal to the nobles in the past so as to cover up his true motives.
  • Pursuing Parental Perils: His father was also a brilliant strategist who started a revolution. The difference between him and Miller is that Miller's ultimately succeeded.
  • Reverse Mole: He'd been plotting against the previous dictatorship from within its very own military.
  • Secret Test of Character: Put Germer through one. She passed by deciding to spare her students, even if it meant dying.
  • Shoot the Dog: Presumably played straight in general, given the nature of the Taboo Breaker Pursuit Squadron, but subverted in regards to Moe and Lach. Instead of killing them as he was supposed to, he secretly hired them.
  • The Stoic

    Germer Kleisrole 

Germer Kleisrole

A member of the army who trained Ryner, Peria, and Pia long ago, as well as Miller's wife in the present.

  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Also, no guy wants a temperamental amazon. After a long line of failed relationships, though, she finally finds happiness with Miller.
  • Survivor Guilt: Thanks to the people around her and her previous students constantly dying while she survived.
  • Training from Hell: Put her students through this.
  • Tsundere: Towards Miller when they were younger—she couldn't seem to decide whether she utterly hated his guts or loved him.


How well does it match the trope?
