    Ueno Beast Tamersnote  
A guild whose purpose is to research the app. Their guild name comes from the fact that the guild uses a system of pairing "Beasts" and "Tamers", where "Beasts" are meant to protect their "Tamers" during their research, while "Tamers" are Transients whose abilities are a perfect counter to their "Beast", in case their "Beast" goes out of control.


Ueno's Research Lead

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Leib is a medical student and researcher, and is very intelligent; for example, he almost immediately catches on to who's actually responsible for triggering the Dream Kingdom event and easily works out the restrictions and attributes of the Artifact in question. He's also, notably, quite perceptive and gives very good advice to Agyo in the Oriental New Year event. However, he's known for being very lazy as well, to the point where his dorm-mate and partner Cu Sith has to pester him just to get him out of bed.
  • Hidden Depths: The Dream Kingdom event explains that no small amount of Leib's lazy attitude is born from relief at no longer needing to adjudicate the value of people's lives, and he's essentially treating being summoned to Tokyo as a prolonged vacation.
  • Man of Kryptonite: He's Cu Sith's Tamer, as his ability to transfer injuries and wounds to trees counters the damage Cu Sith's howls could have on innocents.
  • No-Sell: His Prayer Dauber/Prayer-Dye Bear skill gives him an immunity to all forms of skill sealing.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He looks like he's, at most, middle aged, but he's much older than that; because of this if the Protagonist tries to flirt, the bear will brush them off while stating how the Protag is far too young for him.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: He's not above bending or ignoring the rules if push comes to shove.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: The sheer focus his skillset has, removing debuffs, means that depending on the encounter he will either be irreplaceable or almost useless.
  • White Mage: An odd example as he focuses more of the debuff cleansing aspect of the role, so much so that outside of his charge skill he has no healing abilities.

    Cu Sith 

Cu Sith
Fluffy High Schooler

  • Bad Powers, Good People: It's difficult to imagine a character more unexpected than sweet, gentle crybaby Cu Sith to have a skill named Harbinger of Death.
  • Cry Cute: Because of his crybaby nature he tends to tear up even when he's happy.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: He is considered to be rather adorable, but he is also incredibly loud whenever he gets upset, his Third Howling in particular being outright destructive.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He, Garmr, and Fenrir first appeared with non-speaking roles in Chapter 1, for the purpose of showing the player that transients exist in daily normal life.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: He bawls loudly when he's upset.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: His voice is his primary weapon as a guard dog: the first few warning barks are able to suppress the aggressive urges of those who hear him, while his Third Howling is a destructive shockwave of sound.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to two separate duos, both his friend Moritaka and his pseudo-rival Garmr.
  • Team Mom: Seemingly plays a bit of this role among his schoolmates at Ueno, where he prepares meals and makes sure workaholic Leib eats properly and tries to make sure he stays on a normal sleep schedule.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His green scarf was knit by his former master, with a prayer for Cu Sith's happiness woven in as a charm.
  • Unknown Rival: Though he's viewed by Garmr as a rival, Cu Sith would really rather just be friends, often just frustrating Garmr even further when Cu Sith doesn't respond the way he wants to challenges.



Genius Med Student

Voiced by: Kenta Kumamoto

A bear Transient and high school student. Although Jambavan is an incredibly gifted medical student with a brilliant mind he has a fundamentally timid, submissive personality and is a chronic worrier, which can be troublesome for the older students he is surrounded by. He works for the App's GM team in West Tokyo.

  • Amplifier Artifact: His sacred treasure, the Syamantaka jewel of Indian mythology, is capable of granting him unbelievable, world-shattering power; but with the caveat that he can only wield power from the jewel proportional to the opponent he's up against.
  • Dodge the Bullet: When he gets shot at by black suit bodyguards in Chapter 6: thanks to his proportional strength ability he's fast enough to dodge the hail of gunfire completely.
  • Dressed to Heal: Wears a doctor's labcoat at all times, and carries his Sacred Treasure jewel at the end of his stethoscope.
  • Extreme Doormat: Abused by Alice because of his conflict-avoidant nature; she tends to foist all her work onto him.
  • Fish out of Water: Because of his younger age, he feels out of place among the much older students at college.
  • Man of Kryptonite: He's Fenrir's Tamer, since his Sacred Artifact's ability to grant him strength proportionate to his opponent allows him to rein in Fenrir if he goes berserk.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: He'd really rather not be a part of any world domination schemes, and tries unsuccessfully to talk Alice into just dropping things and going home when possible.
  • The Mole: Not maliciously - Jambavan seems to be completely incapable of cruelty - but he's in a Guild researching the App, while also secretly being a member of said App's GM Team.
  • Nervous Wreck: Jambavan is a worrywart and pessimist by nature, and "Dream Kingdom" has him fittingly taking the role of the White Rabbit, where he's freaking out over how there's too much to do and he needs a break, but he can't possibly take a break when there's too much to do.
  • Senpai Kouhai: Has this relationship with Leib, his senior and dormitory manager at his college. Judging by the way Jambavan talks about him, Leib isn't always the best or most responsible, but has Jambavan's best interests at heart.
  • Teen Genius: He does poorly in social situations, but is academically talented, to the point he studies medical science at college.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He is proportionally as weak as his opponent, which gets used against him by both Alice, who bosses him around, and Ose, who kidnaps him in Chapter 6. Additionally, the artifact depends on his perception of the person: if he doesn't personally view them as evil then the jewel switches to healing instead, so he can't fight someone he sympathizes with on some level.
  • White Mage: A single-target healer with the most consistent status cleansing ability ingame.


Lone Wolf

Voiced by: Masahiro Ogata

[This description was copied in violation of our Plagiarism policy. Please replace it with original writing.]

  • Accidental Proposal: In the "Treasure Ship" post-event quest, Fenrir brings the Protagonist along to obtain "the power of silver" (read: buy some fancy new jewelery), and spies a new release: a pair of matching rings. He immediately buys them, and insists the Protagonist immediately wear one while he wears the other - without reading the rings' inscriptions first. The Protagonist catches on to what Fenrir's done. The wolf doesn't.
  • Chuunibyou: Speaks in fancy, eloquent riddles, talks about darkness and all-around just tends to phrase his sentences in a much more outlandish, edgy manner than his cohorts, not to mention his taste for silver jewelry and black leather and insistence on how the power within him must be restrained. What makes this funny is that he both originates from and currently lives in two distinct worlds where magic, gods, and other similar things are real, making this chuuni persona even more bizarre in the context of the setting.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He, Garmr, and Cu Sith first appeared with non-speaking roles in Chapter 1, for the purpose of showing the player that transients exist in daily normal life.
  • Hates Being Touched: A downplayed case in that in some cases he rather would like to be, thank you very much, it's just that his magical bindings suck the life force out of anyone who touches them and he'd rather not risk it.
  • The Nicknamer: Connects back to his Chuunibyou nature, but he does tend to give people crazy nicknames, such as "Maiden Stained With Ego," "Attention-Seeking Maiden," and "Outlaw Pushy Maiden" (all different nicknames for Benten).
  • The Paranoiac: He can be very distrusting sometimes. One example is during a Valentine event dialogue, where he immediately accuses the approaching Protagonist of trying to pull a prank on him until he finds out by taste that, no, the Protagonist is just giving him Valentine's Day chocolate.
  • Restraining Bolt: Unlike his original legend, Fenrir's fetters manifest as simple looking nylon rope permanently tied to his body, although their effects stays pretty much the same. The ropes seal the majority of his world-ending powers and are tastefully arranged in Japanese bondage fashion under his clothes.
  • Sizeshifter: Once the rope around his body is unbound, Fenrir will regain his ability to devour everything around him and grow exponentially, potentially becoming a world-ending catastrophe. During the "Treasure Ship" event, he attempted to swallow the Sea of Ran in order to weaken Aegir.


Panda B-BOY

Voiced by: Rumi Ookubo

Despite his appearance, Alp is not a Panda Transient. Instead, he is a dream demon from the world of Yggdrasil. He tries to style himself as "cute", hence his current appearance. He is in possession of two Sacred Artifacts; his hat, which allows him to swap dreams and reality, and the bracelet on his wrist, which was what transformed him into his current body. His hand and wrist are now too large to remove it, though he doesn't mind. His goal is to become a star, and as a result is seen as a bit of an Attention Whore. He's classified as a "Beast" in the Beast Tamers' system, but so far he doesn't seem to have a Tamer.

  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: His in-game appearance is due to his bracelet which can change his form when removed and put back on... except when he changed into his current bulky form it got stuck and can't be taken off again. He doesn't mind this much, as his panda appearance is exactly what he wanted. Leib notes to himself, however, that the bracelet doesn't stop working after the App is deactivated, meaning that for all intents and purposes, Alp's panda body is his "true" form now.
  • Attention Whore: Not above showboating his rapping and breakdancing in public, without being asked. This is on purpose, however, as he can't realize his dream if no one knows about him. He also has a tendency to climb onto the highest object he can manage before starting to rap, just to make sure everyone can see him.
  • Book Dumb: Alp isn't stupid, but ever since he came to Tokyo he's been coasting on his cute looks. This eventually causes him trouble when the event is over because he...
  • Didn't Think This Through: Joined a research guild. One of the AR images shows him getting tutored (and intimidated) by a grinning Leib, who knows very well Alp hasn't been paying attention and is very behind on his studies.
    • The whole reason why he can't change out of his panda form anymore is because he didn't consider he'd be unable to take off his bracelet once he become a big, chubby panda in the first place. Not that he minds, since being a panda is perfect for his purposes.
  • Dream Stealer: As a being born of dreams he needs to eat dreams to survive, with the caveat being that those whose dreams are eaten are subject to horrid nightmares.
  • Dream Walker: His main artifact, his hat, allows him to enter people's dreams.
  • Duality Motif: His hat has a sun embroidered on it, and his shoes have crescent moons. More subtly, this extends to his own appearance: pandas are black and white.
  • From a Certain Point of View: Claims that the specialty Ueno confections are specifically modelled after him to back up his claim of being famous. He rationalizes it to himself as "both are wearing a hat" and "pandas look alike".
  • Gratuitous English: "Hey, yo!" and "Put your hands up!" If you plan to use him in battle, get used to hearing it very quickly. He might even rival Nyarlathotep!
  • Hip-Hop: His main design motif, and he raps at various points in his event.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: As a dream demon, people hated and feared him for bringing nightmares. Upon being summoned to Tokyo, he took it as a chance for a fresh start where no one knew what he was or could do, and could garner all the fans and love he'd never had before.
  • Our Demons Are Different: His profile explicitly calls him a demon, not that you'd notice by either looking at him or talking to him.
  • Mark of the Supernatural: The panda markings around his eyes are subtlety shaped like stylized bat wings, symbolizing his demonic nature.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He is the reason that the entire Dream Kingdom event happens. Due to him neglecting to close a door when trying to enter the Protagonist's dreams, his power designates the entire building everyone was in as the area of effect for it.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Invoked, in-universe! Alp specifically chose the shape of a panda because they're cute and everyone loves them.
  • Power Incontinence: His dream manipulation powers have some important aspects to them that Alp managed to be completely unaware of, despite making continuous use of them... right up until they triggered an Event.
  • Solar and Lunar: Played with in that his sun and moon do not symbolize day and night, but fantasy and reality.
  • Support Party Member: His main role in gameplay: he has no real damage buffs, however he can apply quite a few debuffs. This is especially true after he's used his charge skill, which allows him to hit the whole field for a few turns.
