"I must find Miss Charlotte before it's too late."
The protagonist, a maid and Charlotte's personal assistant. She's very loyal towards Charlotte, whom she puts before herself. After both girls are separated after entering the enchanted mansion, Amelia decides to search for her master and find all the candy.

It's revealed the reason why she's so naive and ditzy is because she's actually a familiar created by Charlotte a few months before the beginning of the game.

  • Cessation of Existence: Possibly her fate in the Bad Ending.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Amelia is very naive and whimsical, according to Charlotte. Justified, since she's a familiar.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Loyal beyond question to Charlotte, to the point she'd stop at nothing to find her. However, she gains some humanity after befriending John and Richard and, afterward, the three chatter as if nothing ever happened.
  • Genki Girl
  • Familiar: Amelia is a familiar born from a pumpkin created by Charlotte.
  • Ms. Fanservice: If you complete the game for the first time, Amelia can wear a steampunk dress in the second playthrough. The dress is...generous to say the least.

  • Nice Hat: For her Halloween costume she wears an oversized pumpkin hat.
  • No Social Skills: Leaving her loyalty to Charlotte aside, it takes her a while to warm up to John, and they're more friendly in the Bonus Room. In The Witches Tea Party she's also awkward when talking to Charlotte's witch friends.
  • Only Friend: Richard believes she's this to Charlotte, in the Bad Ending. And since she's a newborn, Charlotte doesn't let her to go outside, at least until the events of Trick and Treat and befriending the mansion crew.
  • Player Character
  • Ship Tease: With John and Charlotte.
  • Undying Loyalty: Amelia is very loyal to her master Charlotte. Its later explained that she is a familiar created to serve Charlotte.
    However, I want to do everything I can to help Miss take care of her...I was born for her. I remember this more clearly than anything..

  • Younger Than They Look: According to Word of God, Amelia was created months before the events of the game, but still looks like a teenager.

"Well, this is your first time outside of the house. Follow me and don't get lost!"
A cheerful but short-tempered witch, who lives in the forest together with Amelia, her familiar. Likes humans, but keeps them at distance, due to Fantastic Racism. She and Amelia enter into an enchanted mansion in order to search for candy, but they get separated after she gets annoyed by Richard's cryptic greeting.

After Amelia gets caught in the mansion's deathly traps, Charlotte is angered and demands John and Richard to return Amelia safe back to her. After Amelia is found, Charlotte finds out that Richard is vampirized thanks to her grandmother Marilyn putting a curse on him 70 years ago because Charlotte rejected a date with him. In the end, the four become friends (possibly because of Charlotte feeling guilt for Richard's situation).

  • A Day in the Limelight: The prequel The Witches Tea Party is focused on her.
  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: To Amelia. However, it's not that Amelia is a ditz per se, just that Amelia is a newborn familiar who's ignorant about common sense.
    You have no sense of direction at all.'ll be terrible if you tripped and broke your head or something..
  • Cute Witch
  • It Amused Me: According to Word of God, this is her reason for creating Amelia.
  • Insufferable Genius: It's noted she's hostile to people who can't understand what she says, even when dumbed down. In The Witches Tea Party she's much more nicer, but it's justified since she has to deal with the naive newborn Amelia and the embittered and prejudiced Richard.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Due to living for long, she can be Wise Beyond Their Years and acts as a Cool Big Sis to Amelia, but she's also a Spoiled Brat and an Insufferable Genius.
  • Never My Fault: If Amelia ceases to exist in the Bad Ending, Charlotte blames Richard for it, even when the latter tries to explain that it was Charlotte's fault for barging into his mansion in the first place.
  • Nice Hat: For Halloween, she wears a purple with hat. Apparently, she's only allowed to use it on that day with the excuse of a costume or else people will suspect her of being a witch.
  • Oblivious to Love: Or rather, she's not interested about romance yet.
  • Oh, Crap!: In the True Ending, after realizing that refusing to go on a date with Richard 70 years ago resulted in her grandmother transforming him into a vampire.
  • Older Than They Look: Charlotte has the same youthful appearance she had 70 years ago. Justified, since witches age slower than normal humans.
  • Pet the Dog: Although she's well known for her arrogance, Amelia states that she does have a kinder side. And in the True Ending she does thank John for finding Amelia and tries to make amends to Richard and help him with his vampirism. After the events of the game, she befriends Richard and John and even visits them frequently, despite stating before that she hated the mansion and its tomatoes. It's implied it might be out of guilt that Richard's condition was indirectly because of her.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: She's always wearing them. Apparently, she makes them herself.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Supernatural Powers!: Especially in the Bad Ending, when she destroys the mansion, killing Richard and John along with it.
  • Ship Tease: With Amelia and Richard.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: She's a witch and dresses in purple colors.
  • Spoiled Brat: While not a bad person, she's rude and inconsiderate for others. And it's not helped with Amelia, the tomatoes and Richard getting on her nerves.
  • Sweet Tooth: The reason why Amelia and Charlotte entered Richard's mansion was to collect all the candy scattered around the place.
    I won't leave until I have all the candy in this house!

    "I received an unnaturally long life because of Richard's curse...Even if I was treated as a monster, or a murderer...I take it as an adventure..

The head of the enchanted mansion. He's a vampire who lives in isolation with his butler John, but they let Amelia and Charlotte enter into their mansion with the intention of finding Richard a girl who'll be the key of breaking his curse. He's softspoken, sensitive and very emotional, to the point of breaking into tears at a minor provocation.

He's actually a human. He has not aged past being a young man in 60 years thanks to Marilyn cursing him. Originally he was the prince of a Western country who was troubled about everyone loving and praising him for his title and not for whom he was. After Charlotte rejected a date with him, Marilyn transformed him into a vampire in order to help him find true love.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: He used to be a sheltered prince who had no luck in love and was rejected by Charlotte 70 years ago. In a twisted way to help him, Charlotte's grandmother cursed him and his butler John, transforming Richard into a vampire whose curse could only be lifted with The Power of Love. After being forced to escape his country, he tried to adjust to his new condition only to realize that his several Weaksauce Weakness prevent him to have a normal life. By the time of Trick and Treat, he's grown depressed and desperate to break his curse. So desperate that he's willing to give a chance to Charlotte, the one indirectly responsible for his current condition.
  • Fantastic Racism: He's rather prejudiced towards witches, as shown by his Breaking Speech to Charlotte in the Bad Ending..

  • Freudian Excuse: His immaturity, hatred of witches and obsession with finding true love are well justified. And it's not pretty.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire

  • I Just Want to Be Loved / I Just Want to Have Friends / I Just Want to Be Normal

  • Vegetarian Vampire: He's a vampire... But, he doesn't subsist on blood. He's a vegetarian vampire that can only feed on tomatoes.
