A character sheet for the characters that appear in Tsuyokute New Saga series.
Beware of unmarked Spoilers!
The main character of the series. After the destruction of his hometown at the hands of the Demon Lord, Kail would end up joining the human resistance, and after one year, is able to lead a suicide squad to attack, and kill the Demon Lord at great cost. However, before succumbing to his injuries, Kail manages to touch a Divine Dragon's Heart artifact that the Demon Lord was protecting, and ends up traveling four years into the past; three years before the Demon Lord launched his invasion force into the lands of the other humanoid races.
Now with a chance to start over, Kail, along with a couple of his friends, depart from his home village in order to become legendary heroes that can help better prepare the human resistance for when the time comes that the Demon Lord launches his Great Invasion.
- Battle Harem: In the second timeline he acquires this. Riize does not die and alterations of events in the second timeline inadvertently cause Minagi to have feelings for him (in the original they were platonic friends).
- Beware the Nice Ones: Kail is generally very kind and polite, but is extremely ruthless to those he considers his enemies.
- The Chosen One: A hero that defeated the Demon Lord in the original timeline. Seeks to become an even better one in the second timeline. Furthermore, in the second timeline, a goddess has taken a personal interest in him and wants him to serve her. Which is likely dangerous since said goddess is a Fantastic Racist at best and widely seen as a God of Evil.
- Combat Pragmatist: Threatened Ganias with his horn, and set up a trap for him in their fight. It helps that he's a Magic Knight too.
- Death Seeker: In the original timeline the Demon Lord ultimately loses because Kail battled to win, but not to necessarily survive. He undertook rituals and utilized forbidden techniques that shortened his lifespan, and in the final battle attacked in ways that resulted in mortal wounds upon himself. Having a future after defeating the Demon Lord, especially after witnessing the death of his wife, become pointless to him.
- Glory Seeker: Justified, as he notes that a Hero needs to be famous so people will be more inclined to listen to him when needed, which means he needs to get his name out there. So he intentionally does things that gain him glory while also paying off minstrels to sing of him and such.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Primarily fights using a sword. Particularly, the Sildonia Zeeles sword.
- It's Personal: If he goes out of his way to kill someone important, it's usually because of this. Killing the king was also motivated by the fact that he had to kill his old mentor to protect the princess. Killing the High Priest was because he orchestrated the death of Goldar by forcing his hand.
- Knight Templar: Kail has very strict beliefs in terms of what he has to do to defeat the Demon Lord ahead of time and he does it so mercilessly, turning even his best friend into his personal hitman on more than one occasion.
- Magic Knight: Kail is skilled in both sword and magic.
- My Greatest Failure: Despite defeating the Demon Lord, everyone he knew and loved died in the original timeline. He intends for everyone to survive in the redo. Unfortunately, he's had to kill some of them himself.
- He fails to save and kills Zentos after discovering his role in an assassination plot that helped doom humanity in the original timeline. He cries and screams in agony immediately afterward, as Zentos wasn't evil, but compelled by My Master, Right or Wrong.
- He kills Goldar, who was another ally that sacrificed themselves to save him in the original timeline, after he was bought as a slave and given a drug to enhance his abilities.
- New Game+: Pretty much what he goes through. Gives him the edge against opponents he'd faced in the future. But in turn he also massively changes history with every step forward, resulting occasionally in undesired circumstances.
- Pragmatic Hero: He doesn't play fair if he doesn't need to and will kill those who he believes led to the future he came from through assassinations if need be. He'll lie without hesitation and go against his word so long as it pays off and no one can prove otherwise.
- Sole Survivor: In the original timeline, he was the only one to make it through the assault on the Demon Lord, leading to him going back in time. He intends to stop the invasion before it even happens to ensure Everybody Lives. Unfortunately, he quickly learns that kind of ending isn't possible after killing Zentos and Goldar. But he can still try for a Bittersweet Ending.
Kail's 1st childhood friend who's been trained as a monk, but died in their home village during the initial stages of the Great Invasion in the original timeline. This time around, Riize decides to join Kail's journey upon realizing that he has somehow become friends with a beautiful elf-girl.
- A-Cup Angst: Depending on the Artist, Riize can be somewhat-flat or decently endowed; either way Urza makes her feel this.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: The premier fist-fighter of the group.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her traveling and casual clothes usually expose her midsection.
- Braids of Action: Most of the time she wears her hair on two long braids and is definitely a fighter.
- Character Death: Died in the original timeline. Her death at the start of the demon's Great Invasion is what motivated Kail to go out and join the war.
- Childhood Friend Romance: Thanks to not dying in the second timeline.
- The Lost Lenore: In the original timeline she died when the demons race began their war against humanity. It was a catalyst for Kail becoming The Chosen One. He swears to save her in the new timeline, no matter the cost.
- Odd Friendship: Kail is surprised at how fast she and Urza hit it off, quickly becoming best friends.
- Supreme Chef: A rather good cook apparently.
Kail's 2nd childhood friend who fought alongside Kail to the very end against the Demon Lord in the original timeline. He is considered to be one of the greatest sword fighters of the current era, which is not so obvious at first glance given his foolish-acting persona.
- Character Death: Died in the original timeline. Kail's suicide squad fought their way up to confronting the Demon Lord where Seran is seen having been defeated moments before Kail and the Demon Lord square off.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: He's always trained very hard...and keeps on training. Partly because he doesn't want to lose to Kail again after he was nearly killed by him in their childhood.
- Combat Pragmatist: His bread and butter. As he puts it, he's the guy who'll grovel at their feet to get them to lower their guard.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Is he ever. Seran is, for the most part, a bumbling, skirt-chasing buffoon... Who ALSO happens to be an extraordinarily competent and talented swordsman who's fairly dangerous even WITH all of his gravity-multiplying bracelets and anklets on. Kail and Riize even point out that it's not really an act, he IS genuinely that much of an idiot (for the most part, SOME of it is an act), but when the chips are down and he can't afford to be reckless or careless, he's suddenly frighteningly powerful.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: Wears bracelets with a Gravity spell to keep his power down.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Primarily fights using a sword. Seran obtains the Holy Sword of the dwarf hero, Randalf, during the Calen City-State arc.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: He was the world's greatest swordsman in the original timeline. He is well on the road to becoming it in the second.
- Master Swordsman: He has absolutely no ability for magic. However, he is the kind of swordsman who only appears once every 1000 years. His own mother, who is considered one of the strongest swordsman in the setting outright admits there's no point in training him since he'll surpass her one day without any help.
- I Lied: After killing 22 of the 30 knights sent to kill princess Mileina in an assassination plot, he talks the others into abandoning the fight rather than risking his life taking down the remaining ones in by explaining that since his job is to prevent them from killing the princess, which they couldn't since they lost their only means of giving chase, not specifically to kill them. They decide to retreat... which is when he then kills the lot of them with an explosive gem while citing at that point he'd told them both his friend's name and where the treasure he found was, so killing them was pretty much on the board one way or another.
- Played with later on, after giving his word he wouldn't intervene in a fight that turned out to be more a spar, he tried to kill Yulriga and only shifted targets when he spotted something else because Kail told him to make sure she didn't leave alive. He kept his word only because there was no point in trying again and because she wasn't as hostile.
- And later on when Kail releases some Hunters after they tell him everything they know, he mixes it in with Exact Words about how they said they'd kill them the next time they saw them and that they never said anything not purposely meeting them again.
- No Guy Wants to Be Chased: He oddly does not reciprocate affection from the Imperial Princess.
- Number Two: To Kail. If Kail wants someone taken out, he does it.
- Stab the Scorpion: Played with. He was actually attempting to attack Yulriga, but changed targets once he spotted an assassination creature instead. The only reason he doesn't try again after that is because it would be awkward and the girls seemed happy enough.
- The Unfettered: Does what it takes to win. Lying, cheating, stabbing in the back, striking down fleeing or surrendering foes, if it works then he'll do it. He doesn't like killing opponents when not necessary, but he will do it once he decides to go all in or Kail gives him the go ahead to kill someone.
An elf-girl summoner mage that became Kail's lover in the original timeline. Upon seeing her again in the new timeline, Kail screws up, and calls Urza by her true name despite elves only revealing it to their loved ones. They decide to create a partial contract that would result in Kail dying if he continues to misuse her name, but can only be done on a full moon, which, due to Kail being in a hurry, forces her to follow along on his journey. However, even after the contract was created, she decides to stick with the group anyway.
- Character Death: Died in the original timeline. Urza was part of Kail's suicide squad that fought their way up to the Demon Lord before she blocked an attack aimed at Kail that resulted in her death.
- Lovely Angels: With Riize, especially during their fight against Yulriga.
- Ms. Fanservice: Her house clothes are little more than a two-piece bikini. Her battle outfit is only slightly more armored.
- Odd Friendship: Kail is surprised at how well she and Riize get along, quickly becoming best friends.
- Official Couple: Became Kail's wife in the original timeline, as she didn't have any competition. In the new timeline she's not so official anymore, directly competing with Riize (who died in the original), and to a lesser extent Minagi (who had different preferences in the original). While she has shown some small interest in him, it's much more subdued compared to her previous version and Riize, who is obviously head over heels.
- Pointy Ears: Comes with being an elf.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her waist.
- Sacred First Kiss: Kail accidentally takes hers in after assuming its part of the ritual, only to find out it was only part of it in the original timeline because they were getting married. She was not happy about getting it stolen by a man she only knew for a month, resulting in Urza wondering if she should burn Kail alive before chasing him down with her staff.
- Gnome: A giant creature summon that serves as Urza's muscle and shield. Can manipulate dirt, Hulk Out to become larger, and made stone.
- Salamander: A fire creature summon that serves as Urza's prime damage dealer.
The personality and memories of the late Magic King that has been sealed within a powerful magic-sword. Kail picked up Sildonia as a reward for reaching the treasure room of the Magic King's Great Labyrinth, and fought as Kail's sword and knowledge in the original timeline. This prompts Kail to acquire the sword again in the new timeline in order to have Sildonia remain at his side. Acquiring the sword once more, Sildonia learns of Kail's memories as someone who jumped back in time, and decides to help Kail's quest to prepare for the Great Invasion.
- Big Eater: He's seen eating snacks almost all the time.
- The Confidant: The only being besides Kail that knows of the alternate timeline, and as such she's this.
- Cool Sword: Sildonia is stored in one of the greatest swords that ends up in Kail's possession.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Looks very feminine, but Sildonia is indeed a dude.
- Mr. Exposition: Sildonia provides a lot of information to Kail on how he was able to jump back in time 4 years.
- Really 700 Years Old: As a spirit sealed in a sword for 1000 years, it counts.
- Secret Keeper: Thank to reading Kail's mind, Sildonia is the only being in the current timeline that knows about Kail's jump back in time.
The greatest assassin in the world... or at least she was in the original timeline. In the new timeline she has the skills, but lacks the confidence and experience. Kail's changes to the future, inadvertently cause her to not undertake assassinations that led her to become the fearsome person he remembers. Kail takes it upon himself to guide her into a greatest assassin, but without harming the innocents or allies her previous self murdered.
- The Atoner: Became this in the original timeline AFTER the demon race invaded.
- The Gambling Addict: Due to her impoverished state she was in when Kail found her, Minagi started developing a bit of a gambling problem to clear her debts.
- Averted, Kail broke her of this habit before it could become a problem.
- Ninja: Obviously, and not only does she fits the more traditional depiction of Kunoichis, she even wears a Sarashi and Fundoshi as underwear.
- Nothing Personal: In the original timeline she killed people who could have been tremendous assets in defeating the Demon Lord. However it wasn't out of malice, but just because she was a professional assassin.
- Master Poisoner: She's quite skilled at making poisons and so Kail decides to direct that talent by having her use them to kill the High Priest of the Empire under his orders.
- Rapunzel Hair: Even in a ponytail it still reaches her waist.
- Skilled, but Naïve: In the new timeline turns out she's this. Her first mission that made her into a renowned assassin doesn't happen because her employer died before she could carry it out. It was the king who Kail killed for trying to assassinate his daughter.
- Stock Ninja Weaponry: Her arsenal.
- Vapor Wear: She doesn't wear anything beneath her chest plate.
Kail's mom, and one of the most powerful magicians known to exist. In the past, Selaia lived in the Galgan Empire as one of its best Court Mages, but she had no drive to step into the shoes of the First. Instead, she chose to settle down at Rimaaze Village to start a family. Selaia ended up dying in the original timeline trying to protect the village during the Great Invasion, but is alive again in the new timeline as she watches her son head off on a journey.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: She was considered skilled enough to become the next Court Mage at the Galgan's Empire, but she rejected it because she didn't wanted to deal with politics.
- Character Death: Died in the original timeline. Selaia fought to protect Rimaaze Village during the initial stages of the Great Invasion, but ended up dying.
- Childhood Friends: With Alzard, who's a fellow mage, as well as the Galgan Kingdom's Second Prince Conrad, who she taught a bit about magic to.
- Good Parents: For Kail and his soon to be born sibling.
- Empty Nest: Selaia gets hit with this hard in the second timeline due to Kail leaving home so young. It ends up making her and her husband get frisky, resulting in them expecting a second child that didn't exist in the first timeline.
- Happily Married: She and Kail's father are very much this.
- Mum Looks Like a Sister: Looks more like her son's older sister.
Kail's dad, who briefly appears in Rimaaze Village to watch his son head off on a journey with his friends.
- The Cameo: His appearance is basically this at the start of the story just to make it clear to the readers that there's no Disappeared Dad for Kail.
- Good Parents: He makes it clear to his son that Kail should take care of his friends during their journey.
- Happily Married: With Selaia.
- No Name Given: Even his son had forgotten his name. It's finally mentioned to be Roerl when Kail's group run into Missus again in the Galgan Empire.
- Strong Family Resemblance : Kail got a lot of his facial features from his father's side of the family.
Seran's mother who used to live in the Galgan Empire, but is now the combat trainer for Rimaaze Village. Missus had taken Seran and Kail under her wing, which she came to realize that the two of them were full of potential. Kail and company later find out that Missus is actually the Galgan Empire's tournament champion.
- Action Mom: Lets just say Kail and Seran and terrified of fighting her seriously.
- Amazonian Beauty: She's tall and has well-defined abs. She also happens to be beautiful.
- Combat Pragmatist: Not that she really needed it to Curb-Stomp Battle Kail anyways, but she distracts him by mentioning that his mother's pregnant.
- The Dreaded: Kail and Seran fear her knowing how powerful of a fighter she is. She's also known as the "Crimson Ogre" in the Galgan Empire.
- Fiery Redhead: Has red hair, and when fighting she's very fierce.
- In-Universe Nickname: As the tournament champion of the Galgan Empire, Missus became known as the "Crimson Ogre."
- The Mentor: Acts as such for Kail and Seran.
- Mom Looks Like a Sister: Similar to Selaia, she could pass for her son's older sister.
- Mysterious Past: Any possibility of Missus living a life in the Galgan Empire was thrown out the window due to a mysterious event 10 years ago where it's said that she ended up embarrassing Emperor Benedix. Instead of dealing with the consequences of whatever happened, Missus chose to settle down away from the empire in Rimaaze Village. Then of course there's the fact that she's apparently been a Melra worshipper this whole time without any of her friends knowing.
- The Plan: Turns out it wasn't Goldar that was Kail's test to see if he's ready to be converted into a Melra worshipper, but his final tournament match against Missus was the true test. Possibly to protect Kail, Missus tries to make it clear to her Melra boss that she defeated him easily, but said boss isn't convinced.
- Red Baron: The "Crimson Ogre" during her days as a gladiator.
- Religion of Evil: She is implied to worship Melra, the setting's God of Evil.
- The Reveal: Shortly after the Galgan tournament, Missus is revealed to be a Melra worshipper.
- Shipper on Deck: Ships Kail/Riize.
- World's Strongest Woman: Neither Kail nor Seran have been able to beat her when serious, and wouldn't have earned the title of The Red Ogre if she wasn't considered this.
The King of Zirgus, and the father of Mileina and Calenas. Kail had met Remonas before in the original timeline where he learned of the King's questionable behavior. This time around, Kail decides to make sure that the King's antics doesn't get in the way of the preparations for the Great Invasion. He is also the primary mastermind behind the assassination plot of his own daughter.
- Arc Villain: He was the man behind the Zirgus arc's assassination plot.

Princess Mileina Remonas
The beautiful princes, and pride of Zirgus, with the potential to send the kingdom to greater heights. Princess Mileina was killed in the original timeline by a Hydra attack. However, in order to raise their reputation, Kail's group travels to Zirgus to make sure that the princess lives this time around, and uncover an assassination plot revolving around her family.
She becomes the new queen of Zirgus after the assassination plot is dealt with, and sends Kail's group on an envoy quest for her to the City-State of Calen.

- Badass Cape: Wears a massive cape.
- Character Death: What happened to him in the original timeline isn't explained, though it's assumed that he probably died when Kail led his suicide squad against the Demon Lord.

- Undying Loyalty: To King Remonas, which extends down to Prince Calenas.
One of Princess Mileina's trusted retainers who leads the 5th Royal Guard Knight Company of Zirgus, and also happens to be Mileina's cousin. Once the Mileina assassination plot is dealt with, Kirulen is tasked to go on a diplomatic mission to the Galgan Empire with Kail's group and Minister Orgis.
- Amazon Brigade: The 5th Royal Guard Company is formed by only women.

- The Leader: Leads the Zirgus Kingdom's 5nd Royal Guard Knight Company.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair usually covers her right eye.
- Sit Com Archnemesis: She and Minister Orgis seriously don't get along. This mostly stems from the fact that Kirulen is a low servant that doesn't wish to take advantage of being Mileina's trusted retainers, but Orgis chose to do so through King Remonas in order to be promoted up to Minister.
- Undying Loyalty: To Princess Mileina, especially since they're cousins by blood.
An old minister of Zirgus who deals with his kingdom's diplomatic relations with other nations. He journeys with Kail's group to the Galgan Empire in order to help sort out what happened to the men Galgan sent to the Calen City-State that ended up dying to a demon.
- Berserk Button: Kirulen strikes a sore spot when she calls out Orgis as someone who got his job only because of his friendship with King Remonas.

- Eyes Always Shut: Orgis is never seen with his eyes open.
- Sit Com Archnemesis: He and Captain Kirulen don't get along. This mostly stems from the fact that Kirulen is a low servant that doesn't wish to take advantage of being Mileina's trusted retainers, but Orgis chose to do so through King Remonas in order to be promoted up to Minister.
One of Princess Mileina's trusted retainers who helps the princess perform publicity stunts, and serves as her closest servant.

- Undying Loyalty: Serves Princess Mileina.
One of Princess Mileina's trusted retainers who appears to have some skill in using fire magic.

- Undying Loyalty: Serves Princess Mileina.
The current governor of Calen who stays secluded to his room in Calen's Galgan Embassy due to coming down with an illness that has put the governor on a very limited time to continue living. As it turns out, he had formed a partnership with the Demons that snuck into Calen as his way of keeping the city alive; sacrificing his own people for the Demon's goal so that there would be less people around that would attempt to live off Calen's depleting resources.
- Character Death: Bax eventually succumbs to his disease shortly after Kail's group deals with Calen's demon problem.

A dwarf that is Calen's number-one blacksmith, and the top candidate to take over as the cities governor if Bax passes away. Kail offers him a large Mithril ore from Sildonia's Labyrinth in order to have a sword crafted by the great blacksmith. He also happens to be Miranda's lover, and knew of Bax's plan regarding the sacrificed Calen citizens.
- The Atoner: After being given a large mithril ore from Kail, Gazas plans to make many mithril items and weapons as atonement for knowing about Bax sacrificing the people of Calen, but not being able to do anything about it.
- Badass Beard: He wouldn't be a dwarf and a blacksmith without one.

This time around, Kail offers Gou all the funding he needs, as well as Sildonia's knowledge, in order to have the Golems ready in time for the Great Invasion.
- Distressed Dude: How he's introduced. Seran had to save him from a couple Calen thugs.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Much to Seran's disappointment.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Gou has a niche for fixing mechanical things. He also turns out to be the engineer that built the golems that helped humanity turn the tide against the demons in the original timeline. In the current timeline, Kail finds out about this much earlier, and provides Gou the funds to make sure that the golems are ready this time around for the start of the Great Invasion.
- Happily Adopted: By his step-father Gazas.
- Teen Genius: He's skilled enough that Sildonia takes him as apprentice.
RandalfA legendary dwarf hero that slew the previous Demon Lord 300 years ago. His weapon, the "Holy Sword Rand", was passed down over the years, and ended up in the hands of the Calen City-State.

- 100% Adoration Rating: The people of Galgan absolutely adore him to the point that they feel that the empire will be in great hands once he becomes the new emperor.
- Beneath the Mask: His conversation with Maizar following the Galgan tournament opens up a lot of questions due to him wishing for the Melra worshippers to continue hiding in the shadows until the world ends. It really brings to question if there's more to Eldrand than meets the eye.
- Big Brother Mentor: He knows full-well how to put his younger siblings in their place.
- Character Death: The cause of his death in the original timeline remained a mystery. Kail learned that Eldrand was officially announced to have died from a heart attack, but due to being in perfect health leading up to it, a popular rumor was that Maizar may have had him assassinated.
- In actuality, Eldrand's death in the original timeline was a result of King Remonas hiring the master assassin, Souga, to perform the kill, but due to Souga's old age, his apprentice, Minagi, took on the job to kill Eldrand.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He keeps a close watch over his siblings as the one in charge, and is nice enough to provide Kail and company a reasonable stay during their diplomatic mission with the Galgan Empire.

The second prince of the Galgan Empire who's an old friend of Selaia. In the original timeline after the deaths of his father and older brother, he winds up in a 3-way civil war against Maizar and Eldrand's son under the belief that he was deserving to be the next emperor. In the current timeline, Conrad's been keeping an eye on the movements that involve the evil Melra worshippers.

In the original timeline, Benedix named Maizar to be the next emperor over his older brother and nephew, which resulted in a civil war between 3 factions led by said respective leaders. Maizar ended up winning the civil war after a year of fighting, which he became friends with Kail when the two of them met, and Kail came to view Maizar as the greatest ruler he ever met. However, Maizar and the empire ended up falling during the Great Invasion due to the civil war leaving them unprepared for the demon onslaught. Now that the situation in Zirgus has changed with Mileina becoming the new queen in the current timeline, she is able to reject the marriage term, and sends Kail's group to Calen to close the territorial dispute for good.
- Arranged Marriage: With Princess Mileina of Zirgus. She calls it off after becoming Zirgus' new queen.
- Bash Brothers: In the original timeline he was this with Kail.
- Beneath the Mask: His conversation with Eldrand following the Galgan tournament opens up a lot of questions due to his older brother wishing for the Melra worshippers to continue hiding in the shadows until the world ends. It really brings to question if there's more to Maizar than meets the eye. Though not so much for Maizar given how his persona is already a lot more questionable than Eldrand looking like the perfect person.

High Priest Bahrel
The High Priest of the Galgan Empire. Bahrel is actually a worshipper of the evil Goddess, Melra, who hates all non-human races, which in turn makes him a racist towards non-humans as well. He attempts to convert Kail over to the Melra worshippers side though his slave, Goldar.

- Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when Kail gives the High Priest a calm but sinister smile following his duel with Goldar that resulted in the lizard-man's death.
- The Plan: To try to convert Kail over to worshipping Goddess Melra, Bahrel puts his lizard-man slave, Goldar, up against the former in the tournament to show Kail how great it is for humans to stand above the other races.
- The Reveal: While it didn't take long for him to reveal who he is, Bahrel shows his true self to Kail since it turned out that the one who leads the Melra worshippers desires for Kail to join their cause having been impressed by what the boy has accomplished so far.
- Religion of Evil: He's a worshipper of Melra, the Goddess of Darkness.
A loyal retainer to Eldrand who acts as the First Prince's second-in-command. Darius is considered to be one of the empire's top fighters, and managed to win the Galgan tournament in a previous year.

- The Leader: She's the First Court Mage of the Galgan Empire.
- The Mentor: Trained Selaia in the past.
- My Greatest Failure: Being unable to establish her First Court Mage successor hits Beadolra pretty hard due to Selaia choosing to settle down in Rimaaze Village despite her talent, and Alzard's unexpected death, which were the Galgan Empire's top two mages after Beadolra.
- No Hugging, No Kissing: Beadolra is mentioned by Selaia to be someone who stayed single her whole life.
The Galgan Empire's second best Court Mage who had studied magic with Kail's mother, Selaia, in the past. He arrives at Calen in the hopes that he can talk with Governor Bax to bring the City-State into the Empire, and is also ecstatic to find out that Kail is currently at the city.

A lizard-man who fought against the demons alongside Kail in the original timeline. In the current timeline, he serves as Kail's third opponent in the Galgan tournament as a war slave. Goldar's owner turns out to be High Priest Bahrel, who plans to use his slave's fight as a way to try to convert Kail over to worshipping Goddess Melra.
- Blood Knight: The lizard-men in general are said to be beings that love to fight. Goldar ends up believing that Kail will make for a great opponent since Kail let it slip that he knew about the lizard-men's God of War, Azaul, which means that whichever lizard-man revealed Azaul's existence to Kail recognized the latter's strength.
- Breath Weapon: His trump card is to shoot fire from his mouth, which is implied to be an ability that all lizard-men have.
- Character Death: During their tournament duel, Kail strikes a spot on Goldar's stomach that reverses the flow of the lizard-man's breath attack, which causes the lizard-man's gas pouch to blow up, and destroys the body. Goldar dies shortly after.
- Lizard Folk: He's a lizard-man.
- Made a Slave: In the past, the Galgan Empire invaded the continent's southern region where they captured many beings to be their war slaves. Goldar is one of such slaves that ended up in the hands of High Priest Bahrel, and is now being forced to take part in the tournament where he must use the Blood Eye drug, or else he would get sent off to work at a mine.
- Master Swordsman: Primarily fights with a sword.
- Psycho Serum: For his match with Kail, Goldar ended up drinking a powerful drug known as Blood Eye which increases one's combat abilities, but ruins the mind, which results in shaving away at the user's life.

- Religious Bruiser: Before battle, he prays to the lizard-man's God of War, Azaul.
- Satellite Character: The whole point of Goldar's character is to show that those who worship Melra are evil bastards.
- Suicide Attack: After exhausting all options, lizard-men have the ability to reverse the flow of their fire-breath attack towards the gas pouch inside their body that allows for the user to try a last ditch suicide explosion to kill their opponent. Kail knew about this from fighting a lizard-man in the past, which he took advantage of to force Goldar to self-destruct.
- Super Senses: Thanks to lizard-men having good hearing, Goldar was able to hear Kail namedrop their God of War, Azaul, from far away.
- Unwitting Pawn: He ends up being this for High Priest Bahrel and the Melra worshippers in a plan to try to convert Kail over to their cause. The result is Goldar dying.

- Half-Human Hybrid: Elina is half-human and half-elf.
- Healthcare Motivation: Desperately in need of money for medicine to cure her sick human mother, Luctera, Elina takes on the job offer to guide Kail's group to the Dragon nest. This was invoked by Melra worshipers. Luctera's doctor was actually one of them and he poisoned Luctera to ensure Elina would be desperate to take a job right when Kail's group needed a guide.

- Pointy Ears: Has dark elf ears that she tries to keep hidden using a head cloth.

- Unicorn: What Roas is.
A female human adventurer who fell in love with a dark elf, and eventually gave birth to the half-elf, Elina.

In the current timeline, Luctera's suffering from an illness, which forces Elina to go out and find some money to purchase the medicine needed to cure her mother.
- Archer Archetype: A brief moment in Kail's flashback shows Luctera with an arrow quiver on her back, which implies heavily that she's a bow user.
- Big Damn Heroes: In the original timeline, she saved Kail's life during one of their battles against the demons, which she asks for Kail to repay the debt by doing the same for her somewhere down the line. When that time finally came, he chose not to do so.
- Character Death: Implied heavily to have died in the original timeline when Kail left Luctera's party for dead against an onslaught of demons, because he chose to save what was left of his forces by having them retreat from the battle rather than rush back in to try to save her group.
- Interspecies Romance: She's a human who fell in love with a dark elf, and they ended up having a child together.
- Official Couple: With Elina's father, who was a dark elf.
- Soap Opera Disease: In the current timeline, she's suffering from a serious illness that's said to require expensive medicine to possibly cure it.

This would eventually lead to Kail successfully defeating a dragon, news of which Melra worshipers spread to increase Kail's heroic reputation. Kail wonders if everything so far was part of their plot.
The Demon Lord
The future leader of all demons. In the original timeline, the Demon Lord ended the peace made by his predecessor and launched the Great Invasion to wipe out the rest of the humanoid factions who opposed him, but was killed a year later when a suicide squad led by Kail Lenard was able to reach his location. It is then discovered that the Demon Lord had been using the mana of his dead enemies to power up a Divine Dragon's Heart artifact that Kail ends up using in the Demon Lord's place to go back four years in time. The purpose as to why the Demon Lord's overall goal was to go back in time remains one of the stories biggest mysteries.
- Big Bad: Pretty much responsible for the plot.
- Character Death: Died in the original timeline. Kail's suicide squad pushed through the demons to reach the lord's location where Kail defeated the Demon Lord in a one-on-one duel.

Ganias' method being to create an explosion using the mana of Calen's dead citizens in order to force the resources within Calen's nearby mountain to the surface (not knowing that Calen's resources have already been used up) in the hopes that it will reveal Randalf's sword to them.

- The Plan: His entire plan of locating Randalf's lost sword hinges on killing humans to gather up enough mana from the corpses so that he can create a big enough explosion on Calen's resource mountain.
- The Starscream: In the original timeline Kail considered him to be one, but upon meeting him the second timeline, realized that the first Ganias was a lot more secretive and with held specific knowledge about the Demon Lord out of fanatical loyalty.
- Torture Always Works: Played with. He did reveal information when tortured by Kail in the original timeline, but refused to reveal the most important secrets and took them to the grave.
One of two Demons that infiltrated the Calen City-State to search for Randalf's holy sword. Unlike her partner, she doesn't wish to fight against the humanoid races due to the current Demon Lord wishing to avoid having to resort to violence.
- Badass Pacifist: Possibly due to her orders, she doesn't really bother fighting others and merely lets them wear themselves out the first time. The second time, she doesn't keep fighting seriously because of it.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: She seems to prefer using her body to fight, transforming her skin into scaled armor.
- The Bus Came Back: After Calen, Yulriga was out of the story for the Galgan arc, but reappears in the following Eddos arc as an envoy sent by the Demon Lord to talk with the Dragons.
- The Dragon: Even though she didn't agree with his methods, she assisted Ganias' plan for the Calen arc.
- Friendly Enemy: Her new relationship with Urza and Riize can be considered this.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: She promptly surrenders to Urza and Riize after they land some solid hits on her. Not because she possibly couldn't win, but because she was ordered to return alive and didn't want to kill humans. Since there was no need to prolong things, she simply told them what they wanted to know and tried to leave.
- Miss Exposition: It's because of her that we learn the current Demon Lord didn't want any deaths.
- Stripperiffic: She's wearing even less than Riize and Urza.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Taken advantage of by Riize and Urza during their second fight because she doesn't want to seriously hurt them and she doesn't have experience in fighting on the front-lines. As Kail puts it, 300 years of relative peace have affected the demons too.
- Worthy Opponent: Comes to respect Riize and Urza after their second fight.
LouisaThe current Demon Lord before the demon lord that Kail deals with in the future.
- Doomed by Canon: This is bound to be the case for the demon lord Kail encountered to exist. How it happens has yet to be seen.

- Professional Killer: Souga made a name for himself as a master assassin, which impressed King Remonas to give him a job to kill a high-rank noble of the Galgan Empire. It's implied heavily that the job he received was to kill First Prince Eldrand, which Minagi managed to pull off in the original timeline.
- Old Master: Even at 60 years old, he's a good enough assassin capable enough to train up Minagi. However, even he realizes that his age is finally catching up to him.
- The Mentor: A master assassin that trained Minagi in her past.
