Character Reference List

List of Reoccurring Characters

This should be a list of all reoccurring characters -- those who take notable action in more than just one or two adjacent chapters. I try to keep this up-to-date (but not guaranteed). Characters with 'proper introduction' means they were described in detail by a major character in said chapter. Warning that this should not be read prior to volume 2 (nor should it be needed) due to potential spoilers.

    character design is way better than most other novels I read, congratulations.
    Many of them feel very real (having flaws and good attributes).

    That Pascal is the "Landgrave of Nordkreuz" by volume 2 gives anything away, I'm sure.

    Parzifal Sigismund von Seydlitz der Chevallerie -- Healer; logistics officer of the Ghost Riders Knights Phantom (volume 2)

    Aorii, you're getting ahead of yourself. Grenadiers Phantom for now.

    Since spoilers are supposed to be neutered here, I don't mind if you sanitize this comment later.

    on another note:

    Marina -- Maid at Königsfeld Academy; lady's maid to Kaede.

    Hilarious without context.

      They really shouldn't need this in vol1, so I think I should be alright? "Landgrave of Nordkreuz" is also pretty important info...
      Just switching it to 'phantom company'.
      Why's it hilarious?

    Yay thanks for this list. Now I dont have to reread the entire volume to understand the context and remember the characters. Not trying to rush you but are you planning to release another chapter anytime soon? Really enjoy and hope to see more!
