    The Waldstein Family 

Viscount Gerhardt von Waldstein
A viscount and Lord of the island of Growerth, Gerhardt is a centuries-old vampire. In the past, he undertook a series of experiments in order to discover a way to negate vampires' weaknesses, which resulted in him becoming a pool of blood.

Ferret von Waldstein
"...Honoured Brother, that was much too merciful an act."

"If you think I'm doing something wrong, then go ahead and speak your mind. Even if it means disagreeing with me. Remember? I just want you to be yourself."
Ferret's twin brother and the adopted son of Viscount Waldstein. Relic is a powerful vampire. Unfortunately, his many abilities are accompanied my just as many crippling weaknesses.

  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Elsa really, really doesn’t like being a vampire.
  • The Lost Lenore: Possibly. If she really is Professor, she might not be so lost after all.
  • Posthumous Character: It’s not known if she’s dead or alive, but Elsa’s character is developed only in flashbacks. It’s revealed in volume 3 that she was killed by Theresia several years prior to the main story, but depending on Professor’s true identity, she might not be so dead after all.

How well does it match the trope?
