The protagonist of the game. A young witch charged with protecting the Sea Kingdom alongside her familiars. She is the only daughter of the Great Sorcerer, Meikai.

  • Adaptational Wimp: In the game, she's more than capable of fighting effectively, even defeating Orca by herself. In the manga, she does almost no fighting at all.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Wadda.
  • All-Loving Hero: She thinks the best of everybody. The closest she gets to hating the villains is deciding she can't trust them, and that they have to be stopped for others' protection.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Whatever Sal does to her in the first normal ending results in her gleefully becoming the Red Witch.
  • Braids of Action: Twin long braids and can fight back with magic.
  • Brainy Brunette: Unfortunately, she's not too quick on the uptake when it comes to other matters...
  • Break the Cutie: In the final chapters of the game, she is painfully forced to remember how she was betrayed by Sal, used as a pawn of the Dead Sea Kingdom, trapped in a nightmarish world by Princess Mikotsu, sees her homeland corrupted into what can only be described as Hell under water, and the boy who loves her is nearly killed before her eyes. Depending on the ending, she then either is tortured until she joins the forces of evil, makes a Heroic Sacrifice to save Samekichi, or is also almost killed, only being saved by Samekichi's Heroic Sacrifice — but spends a long time after that blaming herself for not protecting him.
  • The Cameo: Appears in Mogeko Castle as a figurine on Somewhat Strange Mogekos shelf.
  • Clueless Dude Magnet: Attracts the attention of Samekichi, Fukami, and Sal.
  • Cute Witch: Cute as a button and is a sweet girl at heart.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Gets them in the True Ending after Samekichi sacrifices himself. Her eyes return to normal when he returns years later.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: In the True Ending, Wadanohara does finally get to be happy together with Samekichi, but she's put through hell first, and then has to wait many years while Samekichi fights through the Sea of Death.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hair ribbons.
  • Innocent Gray Eyes: Gray eyes to highlight her innocence and her beauty.
  • Inverted Portrait: Shown this way near the end when Princess Mikotsu briefly manages to trap her in a Lotus-Eater Machine.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the second normal ending, she follows in her father's footsteps and becomes a new Cast Pearl to ward off the Dead Sea.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: All of her stats are well balanced.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She can't recall the exact circumstances of Samekichi's apparent betrayal. This is because she's under a curse from Sal, and feels intense pain if she begins to remember anything.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Samekichi.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Princess Mikotsu traps her mind in a version of Deepsea Town where nothing bad will ever happen to her friends... because they're all dead. Her father's spirit helps bring her out of it.
  • Love You and Everybody: When Samekichi confesses that he loves Wadanohara in a flashback, Wadanohara replies that of course she loves him too — and all her other friends. In the True Ending, however, Wadanohara finally realizes what Samekichi actually meant, and she once again confesses she loves Samekichi — but this time she adds "more than anyone", as she's finally grown to both understand Samekichi's romantic feelings towards her and her own romantic feelings towards him.
  • Nice Girl: Her kindness is the reason why pretty much everyone in the Sea Kingdom adores her and why her sacrifice in the second Normal Ending ended up having such an impact.
  • Nice Hat: Starts with a white sailor beret, then swaps it out with a nautical-themed witch hat.
  • Official Couple: With Samekichi in the True Ending.
  • Only Sane Woman: Is the only one that even considers the possibility that Samekichi is not the traitor and Tostasu Kingdom might have a reason for attacking, which is proven to be correct.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to her hips and is even longer after the True Ending.
  • Sailor Fuku: Her outfit of choice, fitting her nautical motif.
  • Stepford Smiler: Wadanohara is a Type A at times. When something upsets her, she'll hide it under a cheerful facade, although most people can easily sense something's amiss.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the True Ending, Wadanohara gains a rank, going from ordinary sea witch to "The Great Sea Witch".
  • Vague Age: She's really short, but seems Older Than She Looks. It's implied she might not grow properly in a conversation with Samekichi, possibly due to being a witch that was born from an egg.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Gains Grade A when she becomes the Red Witch in Normal End 1.

    Samekichi (Spoiler Warning)
Wadanohara's first familiar, a shark boy. For unknown reasons, he left her side at some point in the past and now tries to force her out of the Sea Kingdom. Is the prime suspect of being the traitor in Blue Sea Kingdom.
  • ArcVillain: He’s the main antagonistic character in the first act, as he tries to keep Wada out of the sea, but he isn’t exactly a villain.
  • Androcles' Lion: For most of the story, Wadanohara's friends think that Samekichi is the traitor who attacked Wadanohara, stole the sacred sword, and damaged the barrier stones. However, Wadanohara repeatedly refuses to believe this, choosing to believe in Samekichi. Wadanohara's faith in Samekichi is rewarded — Samekichi isn't the traitor, Sal is, and Samekichi ends up being a valuable ally.
  • Badass in Distress: At the hands of both Orca and Sal. The former brutally beats and plans to eat him, while the latter traps him in the Sea of Death, both times requiring Wada to save him.
  • Break Her Heart to Save Her: His antagonistic behavior towards Wadanohara is both to prevent her from regaining her lost memories — which carries a chance of permanently breaking her mind — and to keep her away from the machinations of the Dead Sea.
  • Cain and Abel: Abel to Sal's Cain. Sal, the traitor, hates him and decides to frame him for being the traitor. Why is never explained.
  • Driven to Suicide: Though the game never shows it directly it is heavily implied that he does this in the second Normal Ending in order to be together with Wadanohara, who pulled a Heroic Sacrifice earlier.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: In the True Ending, Samekichi does finally get to be happy together with Wadanohara, but he has to go through hell, literally (in the form of the Sea of Death), first.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Once Sal's curse on Wadanohara's memories fades, he stops acting so distant and starts directly helping her.
  • Forced to Watch: Whatever it is that Sal may or may not be doing to Wadanohara in Normal End 1, he is made to see all of it.
  • Good All Along: Though built up as the traitor and a major antagonist, he was extorted into obeying the whims of the true traitor in order to save Wadanohara.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the best ending, he follows Sal into the Dead Sea to reclaim the Sacred Sword and use it to close the gate from the other side, despite the fact that it might be impossible to return.
  • Lack of Empathy: Possibly. He professes not to care about the fate of the Sea of Death and the Sea Kingdom. He only cares about Wadanohara and her happiness. He could be exaggerating.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: His attachment to Wadanohara is his entire motive for living.
  • The Mole: Accused of being this. He’s not- he was framed.
  • Never the Obvious Suspect: Everyone suspects him of being the traitor to the Blue Sea Kingdom- he has an intimidating, “bad boy” appearance, antagonizes Wadanohara and tries to keep her away from the sea, gets in the way of the mission to restore the kingdom’s defenses, and refuses to explain his reasons for doing so. His silhouette is also occasionally seen destroying the shields and doing other bad things. Because of this, everyone (save Wadanohara) thinks it’s him. So naturally, he turns out to have been framed by Sal, his own brother.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: He openly admits that he doesn't care what happens between the Sea of Death and Sea Kingdom, he only wants to protect Wadanohara.
  • Official Couple: With Wadanohara in the True Ending.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Samekichi" is actually a nickname Wadanohara gave him. We never learn his real name.
  • Recurring Boss: You fight against him three times over the course of the story.
  • Starter Villain: He is the main antagonistic character of the first act, but is Forced into Evil.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Wadanohara.
  • Walking Spoiler: It is impossible to discuss him without revealing his true motives, which are only revealed in Act 3 where he turns out to be Good All Along.
  • Zero-Approval Gambit: This is why Samekichi doesn't just tell everybody that he isn't the traitor: if he told anybody, Wadanohara would recover her memories, but then Sal's curse would eat into Wadanohara, so Samekichi let everybody think he was the traitor and kept trying to scare Wadanohara off so Wadanohara wouldn't be hurt. It's only when other events weaken the curse and restore Wadanohara's memories that Samekichi is finally able to come clean.

"The sea's so biiig!"
Another one of Wadanohara's familiars, a seagull girl. She has more of a temper and is prone to playing pranks.

"I'm hungry..."
Another one of Wadanohara's familiars, a dolphin girl. She is soft-spoken and afraid of sharks.

"You like takoyaki?"
The last of Wadanohara's familiars, an octopus boy. He rarely smiles, but is fiercely protective of Wadanohara.
  • Adaptational Villainy: He's much more brutal in the manga version, typically ripping apart his enemies into a bloody mess. He's also the one who attacks Samekichi instead of Samekichi attacking him, going so far as to almost kill him in their second fight.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Heavily implied in the second bad ending, as Sal's sprite is briefly visible behind his before he kills Wadanohara.
  • Combat Tentacles
  • Creepy Good: He can be quiet and a little too good at giving a Death Glare, but he's still one of the good guys.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's not above talking about roast fowl in front of Memoca, for starters.
  • Death Glare: It's even one of his attacks.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: His profile states that he's jealous of Wadanohara's feelings for Samekichi. Both times Wadanohara lost the ocarina he gave her, Fukami was behind it, although he arranges for it to be returned the second time.
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: His hands are always hidden underneath his absurdly long sleeves and are never seen in-game or in the majority of his official art.
  • If I Can't Have You...: In the Betrayal ending, he kills Wadanohara when she goes to rescue Samekichi from Sal, who taunts him by saying these were his true feelings.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In the best ending, he comforts Wadanohara and encourages her to keep waiting for Samekichi's return.
  • The Lancer: He typically tells the other familiars what to do when Wadanohara doesn't, and occasionally goes against her wishes.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's decently strong and the most resilient member of Wadanohara's party, but also the slowest.
  • The One Guy: Of Wadanohara's familiars, barring Samekichi.
  • The Quiet One: When other party members are verbally standing up to enemies, Fukami will usually just glare and say "..."
  • The Stoic


Allies and Friends

"Witches are good stuff!"
A senior witch dressed all in black who introduced Wadanohara to the Witch World.
  • Bad Boss: She regularly hits Lobco and has no issues forcing her to use a Dangerous Forbidden Technique.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When it looks like Wadanohara and co. are outnumbered by Tosatsu soldiers, she appears to hold them off with Lobco.
  • Cat Girl: Her hat has cat ear like points on the brim, she hates water, and she has a tail.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Black hair and eyes.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Dissonant Serenity: When the Tosatsu Kingdom attacks, there is war and death all around her, but does Chlomaki care? ...nah. She just keeps bullying Lobco.
  • Mysterious Past: Chlomaki's backstory is alluded to several times during the game, but the player never learns any details besides her being very old, having many familiars, and that she used to know Cherryblod during his bad boy days. However, bonus material on Deep-Sea Prisoner's website reveals that she used to work under the God of her world and was originally an angel called Nadine. What caused her to run away and became a witch is so far unknown.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes all the way down to her feet.
  • Too Many Belts
  • The Watson: Chlomaki isn't familiar with the goings-on of the blue sea, so sometimes other characters will fill Chlomaki in (and thus also fill in the audience). A notable example comes during the banquet, where Tatsumiya has to explain to Chlomaki (and thus to the audience) why Wadanohara's father, the Great Sorcerer, is held in such high esteem.

"N-no, lobster fry..."
Chlomaki's long-suffering familiar. Another denizen of the Sea Kingdom, the daughter of Cherryblod and Doloz.

"None shall upset the morals of this sea!"
A venus comb murex girl who serves Princess Uomi. Rather thick-headed and easily confused.

  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: Helica gets falling-over drunk from merely the smell of alcohol. It's even lampshaded by her name in the text-box, which becomes "Somehow Already Drunk Helica" at the start of the banquet (and later changes to "Tremendously Drunk Helica").
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hair Decorations: Venus comb shells for her pigtails.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to her hips.
  • This Is a Drill: Her weapon is a large spiral knight's lance that looks like a drill, though whether or not it really spins is the question.

    Princess Uomi
Daughter of the Sea God and ruler of Wadanohara's homeland.
  • Big Good
  • Cooldown Hug: Gives one to Princess Tosatsu to calm her down, causing Princess Tosatsu to realize she was going too far.
  • Deep Sleep: She spends most of the game in one to subdue her sister, Princess Mikotsu. Jiiya, the fish in her hair, serves as her translator.
  • Head Pet: Jiiya is always on her head, and looks like a Hair Decoration from a distance.
  • It's All My Fault: Uomi blames herself for the war with Tosatsu because Uomi didn't "talk it out" with Tosatsu, but Tosatsu reassures her that no, it was Tosatsu's own fault for going too far.
  • Meaningful Name: Uo means 'fish'.
  • Nice Gal: She's a very kindhearted ruler. She doesn't even seem mad at Princess Tosatsu for all that happened.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Her fight with Princess Mikotsu. Afterwards, Mikotsu is grievously wounded and bleeding profusely, and Uomi is completely unharmed.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Her permanent experssion. Jiiya has one too.

"Ugh, Minero's such a troublemaker."

A vampire squid girl and a resident of Wadanohara's town. Dislikes loud noises but doesn't seem to mind Minero's and Creamil's bantering.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Her hood has squid fins, which look a bit like ears.
  • Redhead In Green: Inverted. She has green hair and wears red.

"Oh, when's my sister coming back?"
A mermaid who lives in Wadanohara's town. She often sends Wadanohara on errands because she can't walk on land.
  • Fetch Quest: Not in-game, but as we learn in a flashback, not only did Irena send Wadanohara out to get apples, but Irena very frequently asks Wadanohara to get things that Irena, being a mermaid, can't reach on her own. Wadanohara doesn't mind as she's glad to help out.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has twin braids.
  • Heart Symbol: On her obi. Her hair has a heart-shaped highlight.
  • Informed Ability: Her bio states she's good at singing, but she never sings in-game.

"Stop hittin' me, dude!"

A sea snake and Miyura's friend. Enjoys smoking and beer.
  • Face of a Thug: Always looks angry, but isn't that bad of a guy.
  • Meaningful Name: His name could come from Seguro umihebi (背黒海蛇), the Japanese name for the yellow-bellied sea snake. Seguro (背黒) is also composed of the words "back" and "black", and he has a black back.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: One-sidedly to Miyura. He's often exasperated by her and sometimes hits her because of her antics, and sometimes sees her as in his way. Nonetheless, he still enjoys her company.

  • Posthumous Character: Only ever see once him in a vision.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: Has a bunch of crescent moons adorning his clothes, and the inside of his hat and cape are coloured to look like the sea. He has heavy association with the ocean and Wadanohara's mom is implied to be the moon.
  • Truly Single Parent: To Wadanohara, who apparently hatched from an egg shortly after his Heroic Sacrifice. Some bonus material implies her mother was the moon, but the specifics are left unclear.

"I'm just an Orca on a stroll."
An orca "on a stroll". A fan of violence and starting fights.

Tosatsu Kingdom and Associates

    Princess Tosatsu
"My boning knife can and will cut anything!"
The princess of the Tosatsu Kingdom, which is invading despite a formerly friendly relationship with the Sea Kingdom. She serves as the main antagonist of the game who wants to kill Uomi.
  • Arc Villain: She doesn’t appear until the second act, and is only the antagonist of that act.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Uomi calls her "Satsu".
  • Ax-Crazy: She takes great joy in her massacres, and relishes the thought of killing Uomi. Actually downplayed, as she is capable of controlling it, as shown post-Heel–Face Turn.
  • Big Bad: She’s the leader of Tosatsu Kingdom, the enemy faction, and thus leads the invasion of the Blue Sea kingdom seeking to kill Princess Uomi; however, it turns out that this was over a misunderstanding perpetrated by the traitor.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She and her forces return to protect the citizens of the Sea Kingdom when the Dead Sea invades.
  • Cain and Abel: As the princess of the legend, she seeks to kill her sister Uomi to take the throne. Subverted, since she’s not actually the princess from the legend, so Uomi isn’t her sister.
  • Cute Is Evil/Cute and Psycho: The Big Bad is a cute little bunny princess. Subverted as she is a Disc-One Final Boss who does a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Her father is completely on-board with her relentless slaughtering. Unlike most examples, however, he serves as The Dragon to her rather than the other way around. Thankfully, they both mellow out — at least enough to turn their slaughtering against a bigger threat.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Turns out she was being manipulated by Sal into fighting.
  • Duel Boss: Wadanohara fights her solo.
  • The Evil Princess: Her goal is to kill Uomi. She is not, however, the princess from the legend.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the third act, after the mistunderstanding was cleared up.
  • Hime Cut
  • Killer Rabbit: Literally, like the rest of her people.
  • Knife Nut
  • Knight of Cerebus: Her appearance marks the beginning of the second act, which involves a full-on invasion of the Blue Sea Kingdom and multiple soldier deaths on both sides.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Sal forges a letter from Princess Uomi claiming to have ended their friendship and executed several of Tosatsu's citizens.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Tosatsu' is Japanese for slaughter. Fitting for a vicious, murderous princess.
  • Moral Myopia: She and her forces murder who-knows-how-many creatures of the Sea Kingdom during their invasion. But when Wadanohara fights her, she begins crying and calls Wadanohara a bully.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When Princess Uomi tells Princess Tosatsu that the former doesn't hate the latter, Princess Tosatsu realizes aloud how foolish she was acting and that she went too far, especially since despite what Princess Tosatsu thought, Princess Uomi didn't send a hateful letter or kill Tosatsu's soldiers.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Potentially the entire conflict could have been avoided if she’d just bothered to verify the truth of the letter intended to turn her against Uomi. Somewhat justified as she is a Royal Brat.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It goes down to her feet.
  • Royal Brat: She gleefully leads a bloody invasion of her fellow kingdom over a misunderstanding.

    King Artamos
"I'm getting up there in years..."
Princess Tosatsu's dad and king of the Tosatsu kingdom. A floating robotic rabbit head, currently travelling with his daughter.
  • Arc Villain: Of the second act along with his daughter.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the king of Tosatsu kingdom and is completely invincible in battle.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Was cursed by a witch to appear as he does in-game. Doesn't seem to mind it all that much.
  • The Dragon: To his daughter.
  • Hair-Raising Hare: He's the king of a kingdom of them.
  • Large and in Charge: According to Memoca, he used to be a huge and scary rabbit.
  • Papa Wolf: Gets real bloodthirsty if he thinks you wronged his daughter.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are usually orange, but turn red when he gets angry.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: In your boss battle with him, if you repeatedly choose to "Guard", Artamos will eventually run out of battery because he used too much energy while he was taking a stroll earlier.

"Orders, Your Majesty?"
A tanuki girl who serves the Tosatsu Kingdom.

"I want excitement! ♪ "

"Any good work?"
A demon mercenary hired by the Tosatsu Kingdom and Wadanohara's friend.
  • Consummate Professional: If Ver Million has taken on a job, she'll see it through to completion, even if she doesn't like it.
  • Horned Humanoid
  • Idiot Hair
  • Nothing Personal: Ver Million explains to Wadanohara that attacking the kingdom isn't personal; she was just hired to do a job and she always tries to complete any job she's given.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction when finding out she was hired to attack Wadanohara's kingdom.
  • Tomboy: Girly things is listed under her dislikes.

Spoiler Characters/Denizens of the Sea of Death

    The Traitor 

Ambassador Sal/Syake-san
"Hahaha. ♪ "
Click here to see his humanoid form
A white salmon shark who serves Princess Uomi. In actuality, he's the traitor, the Ambassador of the Sea of Death, and Samekichi's brother, and one of the two true main antagonists of the game. His real loyalty is to Princess Mikotsu.


Princess Mikotsu
Princess Uomi's sister, who began the Great War when the Sea King/God named Uomi his successor. She and her forces were sealed away by Meikai, but released by Sal.
  • AcCENT upon the Wrong SylLABle: The few times she doesn't speak through her fish translator, her dialog is rendered this way. Uomi speculates she's forgotten how to talk.
  • And I Must Scream: Her fate while sealed with the Sea of Death.
  • Big Bad: Of the final act, after being unsealed. She unleashes the Sea of Death upon the world and tries to kill Uomi to claim the throne.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Uomi's Abel, as she wants to kill Uomi to gain the throne.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of one from Princess Uomi near the end of the game. She's last seen staggering back through the gate to the Sea of Death covered in wounds, while Uomi doesn't have a scratch on her.
  • Cute Is Evil/Cute and Psycho: In a Creepy Cute way.
  • Deep Sleep: Because of a connection shared by the sisters, she was put into one when Princess Uomi entered hers.
  • Evil Costume Switch: One of the bonus room paintings shows she used to wear blue like her sister.
  • Evil Counterpart: To both Princess Uomi, her sister, and to Wadanohara. She is a princess and rules a kingdom like Uomi, but she is a cruel ruler who desires only narcissistic adoration. She is also the leader of her group and partnered with a shark like Wadanohara, but is the main villain to her main hero, and is extremely self-centered and willing to sacrifice the lives of others to get what she wants, whereas Wada is willing to pull a Heroic Sacrifice for the sake of her friends and loved ones.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Until the last act of the game, she’s a Sealed Evil in a Can, and it’s Sal’s attempts to release her that drive the plot.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Played with. The first time she's seen in person, she starts a fight, only to stand there and let Wadanohara and company uselessly wail on her for a minute. She never actually bothers to fight back, however.
  • Karma Houdini: Downplayed; while she presumably dies from her injuries that she got fighting Uomi, she does not do so onscreen, but flees through the gate to the Sea of Death, and is never fought by the player or seen onscreen again.
  • Narcissist: She started the war with her sister and tried to kill her because their father gave Uomi the throne, which Mikotsu took personally.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Wears a red-and-black kimono adorned with bones.
  • Mind Rape: Her Dead Sea powers appear to operate this way, as she traps Wadanohara in a gory nightmare world by looking her in the eyes. Sal claims the person her friends know her as will be gone when she wakes up from it.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: A platonic/familial version is her true motive for wanting to kill Uomi- when their father gave Uomi the throne, Mikotsu saw this as her sister getting all the love, and wanted papa all to herself.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Her default expression.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Bonus artworks unlocked after beating the game reveals that she was a happy princess with her sister Uomi before everything went downhill.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • The Evil Princess: Her goal is to kill her sister Uomi and take the throne for herself.
  • Royal Brat: Even worse than Tosatsu, who at least had the excuse of being manipulated, she stars a war and kills millions simply because she felt that daddy did not spoil her enough.
  • The Unfavorite: We never learn exactly why the Sea God chose Uomi to take the throne (it may just be because she was older), but Mikotsu sure feels like this as a result.
  • The Unfought: The only “battle” with her is a Hopeless Boss Fight, and she is never really fought. Instead, Princess Uomi takes care of her offscreen.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her existence reveals the fact that Tostasu is not the princess from the legend.
  • Yandere: Platonically towards her father. He gives Uomi he throne instead of her? Clearly he loves Uomi more than her, so Uomi must die.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: She doesn't attack during her boss battle and ends the fight after a few turns.

An old shark and former familiar of Wadanohara's father, Meikai. He is Samekichi and Sal's father.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Meikai. Both are the father to one of the two main heroes, but whereas Meikai is a good father who wants to save the Blue Sea Kingdom, Old is a Sea of Death denizen who is so absent from the lives of his children that he doesn't even know they're his children.
  • Evil Former Friend: To Meikai, whom he betrayed when he joined the Sea of Death.
  • Evil Wears Black
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars
  • It's Personal: Determined to get his revenge on Tatsumiya after she scarred his face.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's actually the father of Sal and Samekichi, though apparently nobody is aware of this, not even Old himself.
