This page lists the characters of Monster Girl Quest Paradox. Due to the nature of this page, many spoilers will be unmarked.

Main Characters

Luka

80 ruka st01.png

The hero of the story. While his general background is the same as the original game, the events of the Paradox setting have completely changed his goals. Rather than striving for coexistence, he sets out in search of his missing father.

  • Badass Family: The son of a famous hero and the distant descendant of an even more famous one. His mother, meanwhile, was Lucifina, the first fallen angel.
  • Blow You Away: When using Sylph's power.
  • Blue Blood: He's descended, very distantly, from the Reminan royal family.
  • Celibate Hero: Can be played as such, if the player never has him make requests of any party member.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Can't resist helping people in need.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: When using Gnome's power.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Just like the original game, when he hears that a fellow villager is in trouble, he rushes out to save him.
  • Genius Ditz: Downplayed, but he can be relatively naive (justified by his inexperience), while he also has an unexpectedly sharp mind. In one instance, he's demonstrated the ability to calculate very complex sums near-instantaneously, something which he attributes to being a former inn owner. According to Ilias, this is because of his angelic blood.
  • Healing Factor: His Meditation power, though it's not as important as in the original game, since there's many other sources of healing.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Though unlike the original game, he can use other weapons.
  • Heroic Lineage
  • The Leader
  • Light'Em Up: Can learn Holy skills from Ilias and through his Angel races.
  • Making a Splash: When using Undine's power.
  • Nephilim: Thanks to his mother. In gameplay terms, he can switch between the human and angel races.
  • Playing With Fire: Many of his later Heroism skills use the fire element. He also gains control over fire when using Gnome's power.
  • Really Gets Around: Can potentially engage in some manner of sex with almost every single female party member, barring (currently) the Medal Queen. Though some of the monsters are guaranteed to kill him.
  • Semi-Divine: On his mother's side, he's just two steps removed from the Goddess Ilias herself.
  • Space Master: For some reason, he can use the doors in the Tartarus that lead between universes.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks just like his father Marcellus and his ancestor Heinrich.
  • Super Intelligence: Downplayed, but in the Ancient Temple Ruins it's revealed that he is exceptionally good at math. Ilias attributes this to his lineage.
  • Superpower Lottery: He's clearly won this. He's been baptised as a Hero (gaining powerful fire-elemental attacks), can use the holy power of angels, can heal his wounds just by meditating, knows a few Cursed Sword techniques (if Alice was recruited), and has the rare ability to travel between alternate universes.
  • Supreme Chef
  • The Face: He's generally the one who talks to enemy monsters the most.

Alice

80 alice st71.png

The current Monster Lord, inexplicably changed into a younger, weaker form. She has lost contact with her former servants, and is now looking for answers.

Her unique trait, "Petite Monster Lord", allows her to always use Black Magic, Dark and Demon Arts skills, and halves the HP cost of all skills.

  • Big Eater: As per the original trilogy. If you give her presents of food in the Pocket Castle, she will eat literally anything you give her.
  • Black Magician Girl: She can always use Black Magic.
  • Casting a Shadow: She can always use Dark skills.
  • Eye Beams: Her Demon Eye skills can inflict various status effects.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She eats anything that Luka gives her, even literal rocks.
  • Horned Humanoid
  • Magic Knight: She starts off able to both use a rapier and black magic.
  • Monster Lord
  • Riches to Rags: From the ruler of all monsters to having to ally with a novice hero. She's not even considered in the running for the Monster Lord's position.
  • The Rival: If you don't recruit her, she appears at several points along your journey, with her own party of monsters. Notably, unlike the rivals from Pokemon, her party members are weaker than yours (e.g. a Bunny Slime and a Kitsune), especially in the late game.
  • Royal Rapier: Starts off wielding one, and is certainly royalty.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Snake Person: She looks like a lamia, but it's only one of her many races.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She's afraid of ghosts, despite being the Monster Lord.

Ilias

Ilias Sealed.png

The Goddess who ostensibly created the entire world, also inexplicably changed into a younger, weaker form. Interestingly, she seems unfamiliar with the world, and is confused by half the news she hears. She has lost contact with her angels, and is now looking for answers. She is revealed to be what remains of the Ilias from the original universe.

Her unique trait, "Goddess of Creation", allows her to always use White Magic and Holy skills, and the MP cost of the latter is halved.

  • Break The Haughty: All of her experiences, beginning with her being sealed. She's lost almost all her power, can no longer contact her angels, isn't recognized by humans, and is now threatened by even relatively weak monsters. To get anywhere at all, regardless of whether she is in Luka's party or not, she has to work with the very monsters she despises.
  • Fantastic Racism: Still hates all monsters, and if she's in the party, will regularly advise Luka to choose the option that is least beneficial/most harmful to monsters. Amusingly enough, if she isn't recruited, then she has no choice but to swallow her pride and recruit monsters to form her own party. Eventually, she grows out of this.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Has blonde hair and golden ornaments, and white wings and clothing.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Has access to skills that do holy damage, which is effective against most monsters.
  • The Hunter: Starts off in the Hunter job.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Should you recruit her, she steals the Pocket Monster Lord Castle from Alice for the party to use.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She can't remember any of the circumstances that led to her being shrunk.
  • Light'Em Up: She's the literal goddess of light, even if she's weaker right now.
  • Omniscient Morality Licence: Sometimes acts as if she has this, despite no longer having the power to back it up.
  • Physical God: Was one, rather. Immediately after being sealed, she's so weak that her Thunder of Judgement is compared to static electricity by Luka.
  • Shock and Awe: Some of her Holy skills use the lightning element.
  • The Rival: If you don't recruit her, she appears at several points along your journey, with her own party of monsters. Notably, unlike the rivals from Pokemon, her party members are weaker than yours (e.g. a Slime Girl and a Dog Girl), especially in the late game.
  • Time Abyss: As the embodiment of holy energy, she is billions of years old.
  • White Magician Girl: She can always use White Magic.
  • Younger Than She Looks : Whether in her shrunken form or original form, she certainly doesn't look ancient.

Sonya

Sonya (Paradox).png

Luka's childhood friend, a priestess at Ilias Temple with a fondness for clubs. She is unique to Paradox, as in the original game her mother Karen died before she could have any children. Sonya was raised by Lazarus after her parents died, although later on she would be the one taking care of him. She is eventually revealed to be an XX-class Apoptosis, even if she's not aware of it herself.

Her unique trait, "Club Girl", allows her to always equip Clubs and use Club skills and White Magic, and increases her damage with a club and the effectiveness of her White Magic.

  • Blood Knight: Played for laughs. She's much more eager to club people than you'd expect of a priestess.
  • Boobs Of Steel: A physical powerhouse, and her outfit certainly emphasises her chest.
  • Can't Catch Up: In the camp prior to Grand Noah, she worries about falling behind the rest of the party due to being a normal human. Ironic, given that she's unknowingly one of the most powerful members.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Despite being a normal human being, she's able to fight on par with monsters and angels.
  • Childhood Friend
  • Eldritch Abomination: Being an Apoptosis.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: In her Apoptosis form, she has rows of eyes along her limbs.
  • Femme Fatale: In the quest in the Nameless Slums, she mentions employing this trope in order to obtain information. That said, she never actually does so over the course of the game.
  • Friend to All Children: She encourages the Four Bandits to apologise for their crimes to the town, and apologises with them.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe
  • Happily Adopted: By Lazarus, though in the present, she's the one taking care of him.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: In the Alice route, she is the only one who doesn't remember her true nature as an Apoptosis.
  • Optional Party Member: Technically, Sonya can be missed if the player doesn't visit the Chief's House. This has a number of inexplicable effects, most notably that Alice/Ilias will not reveal the Pocket Monster Lord Castle and so party members cannot be recruited (with some exceptions, such as the King of San Ilia). Even more strangely, the game was written with this in mind, as many of her lines will be said by Luka instead. However, the White Rabbit will eventually force her into the party when you reach the Snow Continent.
  • The Paladin: Albeit one that uses a club.
  • Religious Bruiser
  • Team Mom
  • Sir Swearsalot: She tends to swear more often than other characters.
  • Temporal Paradox: Possibly, though it's still unclear. Multiple characters note that she shouldn't exist.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: She is actually an XX-class Apoptosis. Her true nature is only revealed at the end of Part 2.
  • Vampiric Draining: In her Apoptosis form, she can drain the energy of others through physical contact to increase her own power.
  • White Magician Girl: She can always use white magic, but she certainly doesn't fit the other requirements of the trope.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: As Sonya Chaos, she is capable of using both light and dark energy.

Nuruko

Nuruko (Paradox).png

A strange monster found in the first Tartarus. She looks somewhat like a scylla, with even her hair being tentacles. She doesn't speak any words, just the sound effect 'kyu'. After attacking the party in (apparent) confusion, she begins to follow them around. She is eventually revealed to be the spirit of Chaos.

Her unique trait, "Mysterious Being", gives her normal attacks a chance of causing the Slimed status, increases the damage of Tentacle skills, and makes her immune to attacks that do 30 damage or less.

  • Combat Tentacles: Used for most of her attacks, and they're highlighted in her attack cut-in.
  • Eldrich Abomination: Being an Apoptosis.
  • Gag Boobs: A hallmark of her artist, they take up most of her torso.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is Japanese for 'slimy child'.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: She is actually the spirit of Chaos, with a similar role to the four Great Spirits.
  • The Unintelligible: She only says 'kyu'. The only person who can understand her, interestingly, is Sonya. This leads to an amusing scene when she makes friends with Gnome, another example of this trope, as they need interpreters to converse with each other.

Promestein

Promestein - young (Paradox).png

An angel scientist, encountered in the second Tartarus. She isn't the same Promestein from the original game, but neither is she native to the Paradox universe, having come from a universe where the angels won the Great Monster Wars.

Her unique trait, "Mad Scientist Angel", allows her to always use Medicine and Magic Science skills and increases the damage of the latter .

  • For Science!: Her main motivation.
  • Immortality: Like all angels. She mentions having studied the Remina in Tartarus for 200 years.
  • Mad Scientist: She is a Promestein, after all. In her first appearance, she asks Luka if she can dissect his brain to learn the secrets of his ability to cross dimensions.
    • During one camp scene, she is glad that her companions are looking happy... and asks if she can stick electrodes in their brains to take readings.
  • Magitek: Her Magic Science skills.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is a portmanteau of Prometheus and Frankenstein.
  • The Medic: She can always use Medicine skills.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: As in the original game. She's introduced studying the temporal anomaly, but she also expresses interest in her companions' brains, asks to sample the plants and insects of alternate worlds, creates a formula that gives Bunni the genes of a beast monster, shows familiarity with the advanced machinery in the Ancient Temple Ruins...
  • Super Intelligence: She somehow manages to graduate from Remina's educational institute in 17 minutes.
  • Trapped in Another World: From her perspective. It turns out that the mysterious scientists who ran the Ancient Temple Ruins deliberately brought her here, for unknown purposes.
  • Younger Than She Looks: Looks to be in her late teens, but is over 200 years old.

Brynhildr

Brynhildr.png

A gynoid encountered in the Ancient Temple Ruins, the remains of a laboratory. Initially known as the Sleeping Beauty for her dormancy, she suddenly woke up when Luka touched her capsule. After fighting the party in a misunderstanding, she joins them in order to fulfil her mission of saving the world.

Her unique trait, "Machine Commander", allows her to always use Makina, Gun, Holy and Dark skills, increases the damage of Makina and Gun skills by 30%, and allows her to use some Makina skils without the prerequisite key items.

  • Dual Wielding: She has two curved blades attached to her arms.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Despite being an artificial creation, she still has access to the Apoptosis races.
  • Emotionless Girl: She gives this impression initially, but seems to develop emotions over time. Promestein notes that she has unnecessarily advanced emotional capability.
  • Gatling Good: One of her weapons.
  • Redemption Demotion: Initially fought as a boss. As a party member, she's useful but obviously not nearly as powerful.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: She has, according to Promestein, advanced emotions and a functional reproductive system, neither of which would be desirable in a combat machine.
  • Robot Girl
  • Schizo-Tech: She seems to have come from 88 years in the future.
  • Sex Bot: She has the relevant hardware and can take requests.
  • Unusual Ears: She has what appear to be rabbit ears.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: According to Promestein, she is powered by a holy and dark fusion reactor.

Lucifina-chan

80 rucyfinac st01.png

A younger recreation of Lucifina. She is created while on the Snow Continent to increase the party's strength, but because Ilias and Eden are low on power at the time, she has a weaker child-like form.

Her unique trait, "Morning Star", boosts her holy damage by 30%, allows her to always use White Magic, Black Magic and Bow skills, and increases the damage of these skills by 30%.

  • Cute and Psycho: She often suggests using the most violent means possible to solve problems... in the same childish tone as everything else she says.
  • Fountain of Youth: She's much younger due to Ilias and Eden not having enough power when creating her.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She can only be recruited (and isn't even created otherwise) on the Ilias route.
  • Parental Incest: Like almost all other female companions, she has a Request scene. It's even more disturbing because, although she lacks the original Lucifina's memories, she has been told of her relation to Luka... and yet she rapes him anyway.

Micaela-chan

80 micaelac st01.png

A younger recreation of Micaela. She is created while on the Snow Continent to increase the party's strength, but because Ilias and Eden are low on power at the time, she has a weaker child-like form.

Her unique trait, "Angel Commander", boosts her holy damage by 30%, allows her to always use Sword and Spear skills, and increases the damage of these skills by 30%.

  • Fountain of Youth: She's much younger due to Ilias and Eden not having enough power when creating her.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She can only be recruited (and isn't even created otherwise) on the Ilias route.
  • Parental Incest: Like almost all other female companions, she has a Request scene. It's even more disturbing because, although she lacks the original Micaela's memories, she has been told of her relation to Luka... and yet she rapes him anyway.

Heinrich Hein

The legendary hero renowned for slaying Black Alice and ending her reign of terror. He's encountered 500 years in the past, with a suspicious "human" mage. He can only be recruited on the Ilias route.

  • Dream Sequence: He's led by Ilias into thinking that all of his experiences in the party are a dream that she's using to train him.
  • Generation Xerox: He looks like a more muscular version of Luka, has the same skillset, and also traveled around the world accompanied by the Monster Lord he set out to defeat.
  • Hidden Depths: If you have him in your party and visit the Monster Lord's throne room in the world of 500 years ago, Black Alice won't appear - instead, her teddy bear sits on the throne in her place. Talking to the bear will have Heinrich jokingly ask if it's the Monster Lord. The implications are... interesting, to say the least.
  • Idiot Ball: Apparently, Luka inherited a weaker version from him. Heinrich is somehow unable to realize that Alicetroemeria is actually his bitter enemy, despite her barely trying to conceal her appearance and personality. He also believes Ilias' story about training him using a dream, despite experiencing all sorts of things that contradict this (like the Paradox world, where monsters and humans coexist in violation of Ilias' commandments). Eventually subverted, when Heinrich reveals that he knew it wasn't a dream from the very start.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: He can only be recruited on the Ilias route.
  • Oblivious to Love: He has no idea about the Reminan princess' feelings for him, despite her offering a royal heirloom to him as a gift. When the king starts talking about marriage, Heinrich tells him that the princess should be allowed to marry someone she genuinely loves.
  • Religious Bruiser: He's a faithful follower of Ilias, albeit with a desire for human-monster coexistence. Once Ilias convinces him that she's the real thing, she easily recruits him into the party.

Alicetroemeria

80 alicetromeria st01.png

A strange "human" mage found 500 years in the past, accompanying Heinrich on his journey. She is in fact the Black Alice of 500 years ago, though her true goals are unclear. She can only be recruited on the Alice route.

Her unique trait, "Pretend Mage", boosts her Dark damage by 30%, allows her to always use Black Magic, Time Magic and Dark skills, and causes Black Magic and Time Magic to trigger twice with 150% MP cost.

  • Affably Evil: If encountered in the past Monster Lord's Castle, she's genuinely friendly to the party, allowing them to leave without a fight.
  • Bonus Boss: If you make it to the Monster Lord's throne room (and Heinrich is not in the party), she'll be sitting on the throne and can be challenged to a fight.
    • Sequential Boss: She has three stages: her normal form, then her first and second transformations from the original game.
  • Devil in Disguise: Though it's an extremely poor disguise.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: She refuses to use any more power than a human mage could possess, in order to maintain her roleplaying. This leads to a case of Gameplay and Story Segregation, as she has seven different monster races and an extremely powerful trait.
  • Generation Xerox: She accompanied Heinrich on his journey while disguised as a human, just as Alice did with Luka in the original game (and as can also occur in this game).
  • Hidden Depths: She's aware of the true history, including the fact that Heinrich has to kill her in order to follow it.
  • Interface Spoiler: If her appearance wasn't enough proof, her list of races in the menu shows that she has access to seven, one more than Alice does. Only Monster Lords have that many races.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She can only be recruited on the Alice route.
  • Paper Thin Disguise: Long blonde hair, always carries around a teddy bear, constantly-unhinged expression... there's no way she could be anything other than an ordinary human mage.
  • Refuge in Audacity: When the party learns that the Blue Orb has been destroyed, Alicetroemeria suggests going back 500 years and stealing the still-intact Blue Orb from the Monster Lord's Castle - that is, her own home. She also advises the others to avoid trying to fight Black Alice.
  • Token Evil Teammate: She's Black Alice, after all.

Ilias Continent

Lazarus

A grumpy man who lives in Ilias Village. He used to be a member of Marcellus' party, but eventually had to retire due to his crippled arm. He raised Sonya after her mother died, though she eventually ended up taking care of him. He is actually the Don Father of the Mafia.

  • Alcoholic Parent: Parent by adoption, but still qualifies.
  • The Don: He's actually the leader of the Mafia, but keeps this a secret from Luka and Sonya.
  • Guest Star Party Member: Joins the party during the infiltration of Grangold. He can be recruited permanently later on.
  • Guns Akimbo: His cut-in depicts him firing two handguns at once.
  • The Gunslinger: He now uses guns, as they don't need as much strength as swords.
  • Handicapped Badass: Due to overuse of his arm, he can no longer swing a sword with it. However, he notes that he can still use a gun, and he's able to become the leader of the Mafia.

Queen Harpy

Queen Harpy (Paradox).png

The ruler of the Harpy race. Shortly before the events of the game, she and the rest of her race mysteriously disappeared. It turns out that the harpies had been infected by ALQK5, a supposedly-extinct virus that causes them to become obsessed with breeding. To avoid bringing harm to others, they locked themselves up in a tower.

  • Blow You Away: As the Queen Harpy, she's a master of wind magic.
  • Heroic Willpower: She tries to avoid attacking the party when they reach her, but eventually loses out to the effects of the virus, forcing you to fight her.
  • Ill Girl: Even after you beat her, it turns out that due to her great power, a large amount of the World Tree's fruit is needed to cure her. Since you can't access the World Tree yet, she remains affected by the virus for the entirety of Part 1.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She refused to allow the virus-infected harpies to attack anyone, and quarantined them in a distant tower, herself included.

Sluggy Stars

Sluggystars.png

Three slug queens, who inhabit a tower near Midas Village. Their efforts to repopulate their race lead to an overabundance of slug girls in Midas Village, forcing Luka's party to deal with them.

Their unique trait, "Triple Slime", causes their normal attack to hit three times and have a chance of inflicting the Slimed status, causes Slime skills to hit twice, and makes them immune to Slimed.

  • The Dividual: They're treated as one character, to the point that they share a HP bar (and MP and SP bars), though they can act multiple times. This raises questions about the Arbitrary Headcount Limit, especially since they still appear as multiple characters on-screen.
  • Explosive Breeder: They are the reason for the slug girl outbreak in Midas Village. Beating them and convincing them to stop breeding is all it takes to stop the outbreak.
  • Level Up At Intimacy 5: To recruit them, Luka has to show that he has the respect of the Slug race. This requires getting a slug race companion's Affection to 100 to obtain the Slug Medal, and then giving it to the Sluggy Stars.

Nanabi

Nanabi.png

A high-ranking kitsune, one of Tamamo's two aides. At her orders, she guards the entrance to the final room in the Cave of Treasures. Unknown to her, the Tamamo she followed was actually a recording of one from a parallel world, created by the White Rabbit for the purposes of leading Luka's party.

Her unique trait, "Moonlight Kitsune", increases the damage of Taoism and Beast skills by 30%, and causes her to regenerate 8% of her maximum MP each turn for 10 turns if she falls below 50% HP.

  • The Archmage: Through her Taoism skills, she can attack with eight different elements, as well as inflict status elements and even lower enemies' elemental resistances.
  • Bonus Boss: You can challenge her again after the quest in the Cave of Treasures is complete. She's the weakest of the bonus bosses, but is still tough if you don't know what you're doing.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her specialty as a kitsune.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: If you've been progressing through the game normally, she can potentially wipe out the entire party in a single turn.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After realising that she was deceived by a copy of Tamamo, she believes that she can't show her face to Tamamo for a while, and resolves to stay in the cave and train herself.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: Unlike most other kitsunes, she has the lower body of a fox.
  • Playing With Fire: If challenged again, she will now have access to a fire-elemental attack.
  • Purposefully Overpowered: She is the only bonus boss in Part 1 that can be recruited. She enters the party at level 30, with access to powerful Taoism skills. These skills are very useful, being capable of lowering enemies' resistance to particular elements, and are only available to a few characters in Part 1.
  • Shock and Awe: If challenged again, she will now have access to a lightning-elemental attack.
  • The Worf Effect: Is defeated in one blow by Neris.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To the White Rabbit.

Natalia Region

Meia

80 meia st01.png

A mermaid living in Port Natalia. She is the first of the mermaids to go missing. It turns out that she was in fact brainwashed by Astaroth into taking the throne of the Queen of the Southern Seas, and was the one who kidnapped the fishermen and other mermaids.

Her unique trait, "Versatile Mermaid", increases the damage of White Magic, Ocean and Singing skills by 15%.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: She's brainwashed by Astaroth into thinking that she's the Queen of the Southern Seas.
  • Good Adultery, Bad Adultery: Despite being Happily Married, she is willing to have sex with Luka like most other female party members.
  • Making A Splash
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After being freed from her brainwashing, she is horrified at her actions, and joins the party in an attempt to make up for her actions.
  • Redemption Demotion: Like all bosses who can be recruited, but it's especially noticeable with her. As a boss, she was capable of overpowering many other mermaids and even changing the apparent ages of the fishermen.
  • Sex Slave: Not her, but it's implied that she used the kidnapped fishermen as these.
  • Shotacon: Her main fetish. She uses her magic to keep her husband in the body of a boy, and does the same to the kidnapped fishermen.
  • Squishy Wizard: Both as a boss and as a party member.

Kraken

A powerful scylla who is the Queen of the Southern Seas. However, she is attacked by Astaroth and has her power stolen, turning her into a small dried squid. The party rescues her after defeating Meia, and then has to try and find a way of restoring her to her true form.

  • Alien Hair: Her hair consists of tentacles and fins, as if a squid were sitting on top of her head.
  • Baleful Polymorph: In her dried squid form, she can't move and can only talk. She's nearly eaten on several occasions.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Kraken asks you bring her to Poseidoness, her friend and the Queen of the Northern Seas, to restore her to normal. However, doing so causes Poseidoness to admit that she can't do so and to suggest that you try Queen Mermaid instead. Thankfully, Queen Mermaid is capable of restoring Kraken's form.

King of San Ilia

San Ilia King.png

The king of San Ilia, and the leader of the faith in Ilias, effectively making him the Pope of the setting. His real name is Peter the 14th. The party meets with him to try to gather more information.

His unique trait, "Mecha Pope", allows him to always equip Guns and use Gun, Holy and Makina skills, and lets him use certain Makina skills without the required key items.

  • Actually a Doombot: When he joins the party, he leaves behind an identical robot to ensure that no one knows of his absence.
  • Cyborg
  • Deadpan Snarker: Donwplayed, but it's there. When Sonya says that she'll beat up the person responsible for harming the King, he comments that she should be beating up her foster parent Lazarus.
  • Emergency Transformation: After being severely wounded in a terrorist attack, the only way to save his life was to use the unknown technology in the Ancient Temple Ruins to rebuild his body.
  • The Engineer: Skilled with technology, he encouraged the technological renaissance and can use many kinds of machines in combat.
  • Hidden Depths: He might seem like a harmless old man, but don't be fooled - he is a competent and shrewd leader. He has a network for gathering information all over the world, which has allowed him to single out Lazarus as a key suspect in the bombing attack. He has a spy in Luddite Village, disguised as a priest. He even comes up with a better way to assassinate someone than the terrorists who attacked him, to the shock of Sonya.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Not only is he a political and religious leader, but he's also a skilled engineer who had a hand in the reworking of the church into a technological faction, and joins the party to help uncover the truth behind the recent events.

Chrome

Chrome (Monster Girl Quest).png

A diminutive succubus necromancer who has taken over the Haunted Mansion. Her full name is Chrome Artiste, and she is aiming to restore her family's honor.

Her unique trait, "I'm a Genius!", lets her always use Summoning, Makina and Medicine skills, and increases the damage of Summoning skills by 30%.

  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: After beating her, she promises to never practice necromancy again, instead limiting herself to puppetry (which doesn't require interfering with the dead). However, as a companion she's still capable of using skills relating to zombies or ghosts. In fact, due to her trait, most players who include her in the party will have her use these skills.
  • Genius Ditz: She leaves a description of one of the secret passages in her mansion out in the open, for anyone to see. Fortunately, it's in code... unfortunately, said 'code' is just replacing the first letter of each word with 'z'.
  • Hikikomori: She almost never goes outside or even bathes.
  • Horny Devils: She's technically a succubus, but focuses on her necromancy to such an extent that she's still an imp.
  • Necromancer: Her profession, although she's not entirely competent. When she orders zombies to throw the party out of a particular room, the zombies throw her out of the room instead.

Sylph

Sylph (Monster Girl Quest).png

The Great Spirit of wind, residing in the Forest of Spirits. She resembles a fairy, and shared their playful and carefree nature. Luka forms a contract with her during his journey.

Her unique trait, "Wind Spirit", increases wind damage by 30%, allows her to always use Nature and Thievery skills, and gives her the Extreme Wind buff when below 20% HP.

  • Blow You Away: Her specialty as the spirit of wind.
  • Bond Creature: She can possess the body of a man she deems worthy, allowing him to use the power of the wind. In gameplay terms, she acts as a buff unique to Luka, that enhances his agility, accuracy and evasion, makes his normal attack wind-elemental and boosts his wind damage. At the same time, she can act as a regular party member.
  • Duel Boss: Subverted and lampshaded. You'd think, since the purpose of the fight is to test Luka's worthiness, that he would fight her alone. Instead, you can use the entire party, like any other battle. Sylph even complains about this after losing.
  • Elemental Embodiment
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Won't Work On Me: She has complete immunity to wind damage.

Eva

80 eva st01.png

A vagrant succubus who has recently been terrorising the town of Monte Carlo. This led to the costumed hero Justice Kaiser stepping in to drive her away. Luka's party finds and defeats her, stopping her attacks. To prevent this happening again, Luka decides to bring Eva along.

Her unique trait, "Dextrous Poor Succubus", gives her an optional ability that allows her to always use Thievery, Mercantile, Oracle, Dancing, Sing, Talk, Cooking, Medicine and Service skills, at the expense of occasionally using an Oracle skill instead of following orders.

  • Butt Monkey: She's lived a hard life, to say the least.
  • Chef of Iron: Can always use Cooking skills, and enters the party with levels in the Cook job.
  • Dance Battler: Can always use Dancing skills.
  • Horny Devils
  • Jack of All Trades: Her unique trait lets her use an incredible variety of skills, regardless of her current job or race. This is counterbalanced by her not always following orders.
  • Spoony Bard: Can potentially be the most versatile party member, in terms of diversity of skills, but this comes at the expense of reliability.
  • The Medic: Can always use Medicine skills, and enters the party with levels in the Nurse job.

Safina Region

Sara

Sara (Paradox).jpg

Formerly the princess of Sabasa, the mysterious disappearance of her father forced Sara to assume the throne. However, her rule caused a sharp decline in the nation's fortunes. Some of her citizens began to speculate that the person on the throne wasn't the princess at all, but an imposter. It turns out that she was the real Sara after all, but the Lilith Sisters had awakened the latent monster blood in her, partially transforming her into a succubus. Unable to control her newfound urges, she was unable to rule Sabasa properly. Luka's party learns of this, and with Sphinx's help, manage to restore her sanity (albeit by completing her succubus transformation).

Sara has two different unique traits, depending on her current form. In human form, her trait is "Tomboy Princess", which lets her always equip swords and knight swords and use Ruling and Sword skills, and increases the effects of these skills by 30%. In succubus form, her trait is "Fallen Queen", which lets her always use Ruling and Sexcraft skills, increases the effects of these skills and increases all pleasure damage she inflicts.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Because she was only partially transformed into a succubus, she couldn't fully control the urges of her new body. This was deliberate on the part of the Lilith Sisters, who (for reasons still unclear) wanted an out-of-control ruler in charge.
  • Brainwash Residue: If you visit Sphinx with Sara in the party, the latter explains that she can still feel the influence of the Lilith Sisters when in her succubus form. Consequently, she can't use any succubus abilities until later in the game.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Or rather, a mostly-human hybrid. She is the distant descendant of the legendary monster Sphinx.
  • Horny Devils: The Lilith Sisters cause her to partially transform into one, and the transformation is completed when Luka's party force her to drink Sphinx's blood. However, as explained under Brainwash Residue, she's restricted to the Human race to avoid the influence of the Lilith Sisters. She gains the ability to switch races to Succubus during the vampire invasion in Part 2.
  • One-Man Army: When she re-awakens her succubus form during the vampire invasion of Sabasa, she wipes out a large number of vampires.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Right after she return her to (mostly) normal, a soldier bursts in with news of Luddite Village being attacked. She immediately changes from her gown into her armor and accompanies the party to investigate. Afterwards, she decides to accompany Luka's party, to solve the problems plaguing the world (though she abdicates her throne at this point, so isn't actually royal any longer).

Saki

Saki (Paradox).png

A succubus idol singer, aiming to make it big. She takes over the Grandeur Theater by charming everyone with her songs and becomes its sole act. All other activity in Grandeur is disrupted as the people become obsessed with the new sensation. Luka's party puts an end to this, and she decides to travel with them on a world tour.

Her unique trait, "Everyone's Idol", lets her always use Dancing and Singing skills, causes these skills to inflict status effects 15% more often, and reduces the chances of Saki being targeted by enemies by 25%.

  • Charm Person: Exaggerated. She manages to charm the entire population of Grandeur, to the point that random city guards will start using "sparkle" in everyday conversation. In gameplay terms, she can inflict both the Trance and Seduction status effects, and on top of that has a skill that inflicts the unique SPARKLE effect (a variant of Stun).
  • Dance Battler: She has various dances that inflict a range of debuffs, and affect all opponents.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Her left stocking is red while the right stocking is black; similarly, her left horn has a decoration while her right horn does not.
  • Horny Devils
  • Say It With Hearts: Many of her lines.
  • Status Buff: As a boss, she can make herself tougher with Song of Defence, and she can use even more songs as a party member.

Merlin

A wizard and a former member of Marcellus' party. Now, he's become the leader of the Mafia. This is actually an act, to hide the fact that Lazarus is the true leader.

  • Meaningful Name: The inspiration should be obvious.
  • Necessarily Evil: He argues that the Mafia is a benefit to the world, as it keeps crime organized, and that the Sabasa King understood this and let the Mafia be.
  • Guest Star Party Member: Joins the party during the infiltration of Grangold. He can be recruited permanently later on.

Lily

Caption

Formerly the daughter of the Lord of Magistea Village. Like the other women in the village, she used to be heavily abused by the men. She learned the secrets of alchemy from books, and used them to transform herself and the other women into monstrous Worm Summoners. With their newfound power, Lily led a successful rebellion against the men of the village. Now, she wants to spread her power to others in the world who are being abused. She can be recruited, but this requires you to take her side and defeat her opponent, Lucia.

Her unique trait, "Mad Mage", increases the damage of Summoning, Magic Science and Tentacle skills by 15%.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: She claims to be able to hear the voices of people in need, crying out for help. While it seems to be hallucinations at first, if you recruit her and take her to the ruins of Luddite Village, she is able to deduce what happened there from the voices, suggesting there's something more.
  • Body Horror: Both her arms can transform into bundles of worms and tentacles.
  • Dark And Troubled Past: Like the other women of Magistea Village, she was horribly abused by the men.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: The Super-Heating Radiation, Phase Transition and Vacuum Discharge skills, which she uses both as a boss and as a companion.
  • Gendercide: She carried out a near-total example on the former Magistea Village, killing off every male aside from boys and a few elderly men who'd opposed the regime.
  • Mad Scientist
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She cannot be recruited in the same playthrough as Lucia, as she will only join the party after you defeat Lucia. However, you can have them both in a New Game Plus.
  • One-Winged Angel: She reveals her worm organs when in battle.
  • Shout-Out: Her appearance is obviously based on Rydia from Final Fantasy 4.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to spread the power of worms to other women who are in the same situation that she was. However, she will attempt to carry this out no matter the cost, and refuses to be dissuaded from her cause.

Lucia

Luciamgq.png

Lily's former research assistant. She helped Lily in her rebellion against the men of Magistea village, but when the latter wanted to spread the worm power to others, Lucia disagreed. She felt that distributing the power more widely would only lead to its possessors becoming the future oppressors, using it to dominate others. Consequently, she broke away and formed her own faction, in opposition to Lily. She can be recruited, but this requires you to take her side and defeat Lily.

Her unique trait, "Mad Alchemist", increases the damage of Summoning, Alchemy and Tentacle skills by 15%.

  • Alchemy Is Magic
  • Body Horror: To an even greater extent than Lily. Not only are both her arms worms, but her face is also partially transformed and she is connected to an enormous worm that can swallow a person whole.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Interestingly, if you bring her to the Safaru Ruins, she analyses the energy there and gains the Breath of the Earth skill.
  • Eaten Alive: Her Boa Worm skill inflicts this. She also does this to Luka in her loss scene and two of her Request scenes
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: She can create and use Red Fire Stones, Blue Ice Stones and Yellow Thunder Stones, and is also resistant to these three elements.
  • For Science: If recruited, she starts researching the power of the elements, experimenting on the four spirits and her own body. She eventually turns herself into a fairy, and collaborates with Promestein to forcibly turn Gigi into a fairy as well.
  • Full-Circle Revolution: The main crux of her argument against Lily.
  • Hired Guns: Her faction includes monster mercenaries.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She cannot be recruited in the same playthrough as Lily, as she will only join the party after you defeat Lily. However, you can have them both in a New Game Plus.
  • One-Winged Angel: She reveals her worm organs when in battle.
  • Stripperiffic: To an absurd extent. Her outfit consists of a cloth wrapped around her breasts (baring most of her cleavage) and a partial skirt that completely exposes her crotch. When she goes One-Winged Angel, the former slips down to expose her nipples.

Gnome

Gnome (Monster Girl Quest).png

The Great Spirit of Earth, resembling a dark-skinned girl with pointed ears. She lives in the Safaru Ruins with only her mud dolls for company. Luka forms a contract with her during his journey.

Her unique trait, "Earth Spirit", increases earth damage by 30%, allows her to always use Club, Unarmed and Nature skills, causes Unarmed skills to use the Attack instead of the Agility stat, and gives her the Wild Lands buff when below 20% HP.

  • Bond Creature: She can possess the body of a man she deems worthy, allowing him to use the power of the earth. In gameplay terms, she acts as a buff unique to Luka, that enhances his defence and critical hit rate, makes his normal attack earth-elemental and boosts his earth damage. At the same time, she can act as a regular party member.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her specialty as the spirit of earth.
  • Elemental Embodiment
  • Mayfly-December Romance: A non-romantic example. In her past, she became friends with a human girl who visited her ruins. The girl grew into a woman, married and had children, but Gnome remained the same. Even when her friend grew old and feeble, Gnome still remained the same as when they'd first met. Eventually, the woman died, and Gnome had to live on.
  • Odd Friendship: She forms one with Nuruko, another childlike party member who can't be understood by most. What makes this especially odd is that they can't directly communicate with each other - Sonya has to interpret for Nuruko and Sylph for Gnome.
  • Silent Protagonist: She doesn't speak at all. Sylph is somehow able to interpret her silence for others, though.


Noah Region

Grand Noah Queen

The tenth queen of the Grand Noah kingdom. She has the alter ego of the Medal Queen, who collects Small Medals and rewards any who bring them to her.

Her unique trait, "Whip Queen", lets her always equip Whips and use Whip and Ruling skills, and increases the damage of these skills by 30%.

  • Clark Kenting: She doesn't even bother disguising herself as the Medal Queen, yet no one notices except other royals.
  • Collector of the Strange: She seems to have a habit of collecting all kinds of random objects. In addition to the aforementioned Small Medals, she also collects bottle caps.
  • Whip It Good: She starts off wielding one and is particularly proficient with them due to her trait.

Mephisto

The adviser to the Grand Noah Queen and principal of the Magic Academy. She's actually an agent sent by Alice XV to advise the Grand Noah Queen.

  • Becoming the Mask: Despite being an agent of Alice XV, she's sincere in her role as an adviser.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Her snake tails have multiple eyes along their length.
  • The Gadfly: She teases Sonya on several occasions, such as claiming that as a childhood friend, she's more suspicious than someone Obviously Evil (like Mephisto herself).
  • Multiple-Tailed Beast: Her snake tail splits into two, unlike every other lamia in the series.
  • Obviously Evil: Stereotypical witch's outfit, ominously-glowing eyes, snake tails with massive eyes along their length... it's so obvious it doesn't even count as a spoiler.
  • The Mole: For Alice XV.

Arthur

A Dullahan and a captain of the Grand Noah Queen's guard. She contacts the party after they win the Queen's Cup and asks them to help her, leading to the Yamatai quest.

  • Chainmail Bikini: Her armor is limited to greaves, large plates that protect her hips, and what can be best described as a metal corset. Everything else is exposed.
  • Our Elves Are Different: In this setting, Dullahans are a specific variant of dark elf.

Caesar

A Cerberus and a captain of the Grand Noah Queen's guard. She contacts the party after they win the Queen's cup and asks them to help her, leading to the minotaur quest.

  • Insane Troll Logic: She convinces a minotaur to let the party pass by pointing out that, on her own, the minotaur can only get one share of sukiyaki, but if she lets the party go, they can get 10 shares. This is lampshaded by the others.
  • Multiboobage: Three pairs, to match her three heads.
  • Obsessed with Food: Despite being the one who gives you the minotaur quest, she is repeatedly distracted by the sukiyaki during the quest.

Cow Demon Queen

A powerful minotaur who attempts to become the Queen Beast. She invites forty minotaurs to her castle with promises of a feast, starting the minotaur quest.

  • Big Beautiful Woman: With emphasis on the big. She stands several times as tall as most characters and unlike many, has a lot of meat on her bones.
  • Boobs Of Steel: Like all minotaurs. Her's are big enough to literally engulf Luka.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond
  • Famous Ancestor: She's a descendant of the original Cow Demon Queen.
  • Irony: To recruit her, you need a key item that demonstrates your friendship with the minotaur race. To get said item, you need to give 10 sukiyaki to a particular minotaur. The thing is, most players will obtain the sukiyaki by beating up numerous minotaurs for their drops (or stealing it from them).

Alra Priestess

The ruler of the plants of Plansect Village.

  • The Chains of Commanding: Played for laughs. She suffers from a Long List of medical problems due to all the stress she experiences as a leader. According to her predecessor, Queen Alraune, this is the norm for the role.

Canaan Sisters

Three plant mercenaries, hired by the plant race to fight against the insects.

  • Man-Eating Plant: They are based on carnivorous plants, including venus flytraps, sundews and pitcher plants.
  • Private Military Contractors: They fight for whoever pays them. Recruiting them requires you to pay 10,000 gold (though you can haggle a bit).
  • The Worf Effect: If you choose the option of peace between the plants and insects, the sisters attack Tezcatlipoca only to get casually swatted aside.

Undine

The Great Spirit of Water, resembling a slime with the shape of a mermaid. She lives in a cavern at the bottom of Undine's Spring. Luka forms a contract with her during his journey.

Her unique trait, "Water Spirit", boosts water damage by 30%, lets her always use Slime and Nature skills and boosts their damage by 30%, and makes her immune to water damage and the Slimed status.


Gold Region

Grangold King

The king of the Grangold kingdom. For unknown reasons, he has declared war on the other three kingdoms of the Sentora Continent, a war that he is winning. Moreover, he leads his army from the front, demonstrating power far beyond any human. However, he is ultimately no more than a pawn of Tamamo no Mae and the Lilith Sisters.

His unique trait, "Return of the Magic King", allows him to always use Black Magic, Time Magic, Magic Science and Ruling Skills, to deal 30% more damage with these skills, allows him to regenerate 10% of his HP and 2% of MP each turn, and lets him revive at 100% if he's killed (though only once per battle).

  • The Blank: After fully transforming, his head lacks a face of any kind, raising questions about how he senses his environment, breathes, or eats.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In his first appearance, he takes a lance through the chest without flinching, then annihilates several knights with a barrage of magic.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Thanks to his protohuman blood being awakened, he has incredible magical power and resistance to injury. When he draws on his full power to fight Lazarus and Merlin, he permanently transforms into a definite example of this trope. His head is yellow and lacks a face, while his arms are purple and the fingers of his hands are lengthened into tentacles.
  • Me's a Crowd: He has the ability to create a remotely controlled body via magic, though it is too clumsy to use for battle.
  • One-Man Army: He crushes any army he encounters with his devastating spells. In your party, he's only slightly less powerful than he is in cutscenes.
  • Royalty Super Power: All human royals have some trace of protohuman blood, and the Grangold royal family has it stronger than most. Once this blood is awakened by Lilith, he's a nigh-invulnerable magical powerhouse.

Queen Ant

The ruler and mother of the Ant Girls. Due to her daughters fighting in Grangold's army, she is believed to be the mastermind behind Grangold's actions. She is actually another victim, being imprisoned in Grangold Castle.


Poseidoness

The Queen of the Northern Sea.

  • Blade on a Stick: Wields a massive trident, similar to her mythological basis.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When talking to her, if you try to tell her about how Kraken was shrunken into a dried squid (that is capable of talking), she thinks she's being mocked and challenges the party to a fight.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She has features of both molluscs (tentacles) and crustaceans (jointed legs, some with pincers).

Beelzebubs

The last three members of a race of fly monsters, possessing incredible power and reproductive capabilities. Due to the threat they posed, Alice I sealed the race within the Calamity Box. Most Beelzebubs died within the seal, with only the three strongest surviving to the present day.

  • Explosive Breeder: According to their profile, they can produce 10,000 offspring a year.
  • Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: They lay their eggs inside human men, though it isn't the mouth they use but... the opposite end of the digestive tract.
  • Fish Out of Temporal Water: Though they manage to escape after being defeated by Luka's party, they are completely unnerved by the current state of the world. They don't have any idea of how to handle peace between humans and monsters or all of the powerful monsters just running around. They force their way into the party because they're too afraid to be on their own.
  • Flies Equals Evil: These fly monsters were considered a threat even by their own creator.

Natasha

A powerful succubus who leads an attack on Succubus Village. She used to be one of the many victimized girls of Luddite Village, but was transformed into a succubus by the Lilith Sisters during their attack. She tracked down one man who took special delight in abusing her, only to find that he had fled to Succubus Village.

  • Dark And Troubled Past: She was heavily abused for her entire childhood, as was every other girl she knew.
  • Knight Templar: She doesn't hesitate to wage war on a village of her own kind, just because they don't want her target to be executed by a vigilante. However, if you side with her, she will end up sparing the man. If Lily was recruited, she empathizes with her and talks her out of revenge. If Lily wasn't recruited, she decides that the man isn't worth killing after seeing him grovel for his life.
  • What the Hell Hero: She calls out Luka's party for passing through the village without doing anything to help its female population. Granted, they all wanted to do something and likely would have if the Lilith Sisters hadn't attacked, but her grievances are understandable.

Succubus

The chief of Succubus Village. She accepts a man fleeing from Luddite Village as a refugee, only for Natasha to arrive and demand to kill him. Succubus chose to protect the man, wanting him to be judged according to law, leading to the succubus civil war.

  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Yes, her name really is just "Succubus". Supposedly, it's due a custom among high-ranking monsters to be named after their race.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She goes out of her way to protect a man taken in by her village from Natasha's wrath, wanting him to face proper justice rather than vigilante execution.

Cassandra Nereneid

The ruler of Lady's Village and a monster supremacist.

  • Baleful Polymorph: Candy has stolen her power, transforming Cassandra into a mass of flesh resembling an internal organ.
  • Fountain of Youth: When Luka's party recovers the candy containing Cassandra and Emily's power, it turns out that Candy has partially eaten Cassandra's portion. As a result, after eating the rest, Cassandra is only able to assume a much-weaker form that looks around the same age as her daughter.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She and Emily laugh at Alice (if she's a companion) for her current shrunken state, despite being in even worse condition themselves.
  • The Worf Effect: Neris is mentioned to have defeated her and her entire village.

Emily Nereneid

Cassandra's daughter.

  • Baleful Polymorph: Candy has stolen her power, transforming Emily into something resembling an octopus.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She and Cassandra laugh at Alice (if she's a companion) for her current shrunken state, despite being in even worse condition themselves.
  • Third Person Person: She refers to herself in this manner, presumably to appear "cute".
  • The Worf Effect: Neris is mentioned to have defeated her and her entire village.

Candy

A powerful monster who is an incredible glutton. When Cassandra and Emily are weakened from being beaten by Neris, Candy attacks and steals their power in the form of candy. With her newfound power, many of Lady's Village's inhabitants flock to her banner.

  • Big Eater: She can eat four different sweet in a row and feel hungry immediately afterwards.
  • The Starscream: She was once a resident of Lady's Village, but she took advantage of the leaders' weakness to steal their power and form her own faction.
  • Through His Stomach: Recruiting her requires you to give her chocolate, cake, pudding and a parfait. Afterwards, she joins the party so that she can keep being fed.

Salamander

The Great Spirit of fire, resembling a dark-skinned elf with fire for hair. She lives within the magma-filled caverns of Gold Volcano. Luka forms a contract with her during his journey.

Her unique trait, "Fire Spirit", boosts fire damage by 30%, lets her always use Unarmed, Breath and Nature skills, boosts the damage of Unarmed and Nature skills by 30%, gives her attacks Burn Strike, and makes her immune to fire damage and the Burn status.

  • Fiery Redhead: A literal one.
  • Playing With Fire: Her specialty as the spirit of fire.
  • Sitcom Arch Nemesis: She and Undine literally get along like fire and water. When you first meet her, the two of them argue and eventually drag everyone else into their fight.

Snow Continent

Eden

The third seraph created by Ilias. She has spent the past thirty years maintaining a barrier around the Ilias Temple Ruins to stop the spread of Chaos. She is recruitable on the Ilias route.

  • Butt Monkey: She is teased by her older "sisters" Micaela-chan and Lucifina-chan, despite them only being recently created and hence younger than her. They build a snowman around her, give her a crown of thorns that makes her head bleed, bury her in sand, and spin her around at dizzying speed. Despite all this, she's actually happy at being the big sister to them.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: She's constantly naked, for no apparent reason.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: Eden can only be recruited on the Ilias route.
  • Skippable Boss: She is only fought on the Alice route. On the Ilias route, she immediately joins the party instead.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Ilias.
  • Worf Had the Flu: When fought, she is greatly weakened from having to maintain the seal on Ilias.

Paradox Ilias

The Ilias of the Paradox world, who went missing during the Great Disaster.

  • Disproportionate Retribution: She kills White Rabbit with a lightning bolt for repeatedly calling her "it" (though the White Rabbit easily recovers from this).
  • Killed Off for Real: The Lilith Sisters kill her before she can finish her explanation to the party.
  • Mr. Exposition: Along with White Rabbit, she explains the true nature of the Great Disaster to the party.

Alice XV's Faction

The various monsters who follow Alice XV.

Alice XV

The former Monster Lord and Alice XVI's mother. She disappeared prior to the beginning of the game, only to mysteriously reappear after Alice XVI is sealed. She is one of the three candidates for the Monster Lord position.

  • Good Parents: It turns out that she deposed her daughter so that she wouldn't have to carry out the atrocities needed for the Lilith Sisters' plan.
  • Killed Off for Real: On the Alice route, she is killed by Marcellus (presumably to follow the true history).
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She's prepared to declare war on all of humanity as part of a plan to save everyone from the threat of Chaos.

Four Heavenly Knights

Four monsters of incredible power who serve the Monster Lord.

Tropes exhibited by these characters as a whole include:
  • Four Is Death
  • One-Man Army: Each of them is easily capable of taking on an army and winning.
  • Woolseyism: Their Japanese name technically translates to "Four Heavenly Kings". However, it wouldn't make sense for kings to be serving a lord (itself a Woolseyism), so they are called "Knights" in the most popular English translations.

Alma Elma

The Heavenly Knight of Wind, a playful and hedonistic succubus. She refuses to follow the strange orders of the returned Alice XV. She is first encountered in the Coliseum as the final opponent in the Queen's Cup.

Her unique trait, "Fist of the Queen Succubus", increases her pleasure damage by 50%, lets her always equip Fists and use Unarmed and Sexcraft Skills, causes Unarmed skills to deal 50% damage and use Dexterity instead of Attack, and gives her immunity to Climax and Instant Death.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • The Ace: To the extent that it borders on parody. Not only is she a master of sex, wind magic and martial arts, she's skilled in many other fields as well, such as being an acclaimed author.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: When imprisoned in Grangold Castle, she complains about the guards not attempting to rape her.
  • Bonus Boss: She's an optional boss who can be fought after the end of Part 2. This requires you to revisit the Ancient Temple Ruins in a sidequest, at the end of which you talk to Morrigan (who comes here independently on the Ilias route, while on the Alice route she is the one to give you this sidequest). Alma Elma will also appear to kill Morrigan, but Luka will defend her, leading to the fight. Afterwards, Alma Elma can be permanently recruited.
  • Blow You Away: As the Queen Succubus, she's a master of wind. It's also her associated element as one of the Four Heavenly Knights.
  • Guest Star Party Member: Temporarily joins the party on two occasions: to fight Granberia when she intervenes in the Coliseum, and during the infiltration of Gold Port.
  • The Hedonist: She lives for the pleasures of life.
  • It Amused Me: One of the main motivations behind her actions.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: On her own, she fights both Morrigan and Astaroth and manages to injure them to the point that they aren't able to fight for some time. However, she ultimately loses the fight and is captured.
  • One-Man Army: She singlehandedly incapacitates the garrison of an entire fortress with pleasure, and in an incredibly short period of time.
  • Power Tattoo: She has red tattoos on the left side of her body.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She has purple hair, wings, tail and clothing, and is among the more powerful of the Heavenly Knights.
  • Stripperific: Her clothing consists of a corset, a thong, a cape and boots.
  • Wild Card: She used to follow the Monster Lord, but she disliked being ordered to do black-ops work and refused to follow further orders. She assists Luka's party on several occasions, the second time with the goal of stopping Grangold, but then goes off on her own again.

Granberia

The Heavenly Knight of Fire, a proud dragonkin and master of the sword. She first appears in the Coliseum in the final match of the Queen's Cup, having been brought by Mephisto to chastise Alma Elma.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • Demoted To Extra: Granberia was the most prominent of the Knights in the original game, but here she has far fewer appearances and less importance to the story.
  • Magical Girl: She interrupts the Magical Girl creation ritual, only for the power to flow into her instead. This leads to the hilarious sight of the proud dragonkin warrior in a fluffy pink dress.
  • Master Swordsman
  • Playing With Fire: Fire is her element as one of the Four Heavenly Knights.
  • The Worf Effect: She's first mentioned having fought Neris to a draw... after the latter had previously fought several other major battles in the same day, and when she was hiding her true power.

Tamamo

The Heavenly Knight of Earth, a playful yet wise nine-tailed kitsune. Despite her young appearance, she is the oldest of the Heavenly Knights, old enough to have tutored several Monster Lords. In fact, she is one of the Six Ancestors, the ancestor of all beast monsters. She first appears in the Fox Shrine of Yamatai, refusing to get involved with the issues facing the world.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • Big Damn Heroes: During the invasion of Grangold Castle, she first rescues Lazarus and Merlin from the Grangold King, then fights her alternate-universe counterpart. She's unable to defeat the latter due to the limited time she can fight at full power, and ends up on the receiving end of this trope from Nero and Neris.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Earth is her element as one of the Four Heavenly Knights.
  • Mirror Match: She fights her alternate-universe counterpart from the Monster World. While their power is roughly equal, this Tamamo is subject to the Six Ancestors' Great Seal and so can only use her full power for a limited time. As a result, she's on the verge of losing before Nero and Neris come to the rescue.
  • Neutral No Longer: After talking with Alma Elma, she decides that she should take action once more, joining the invasion of Grangold Castle.

Erubetie

The Heavenly Knight of Water, a quiet slime who is an amalgamation of countless humans and monsters, all merged into one being. She first appears in Undine's Spring, after Luka's party defeat Undine, following Alice XV's orders to defeat them.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • Making A Splash: Water is her element as one of the Four Heavenly Knights.
  • Many Spirits Inside of One: She has absorbed countless humans and monsters, and all of their lives continue to exist within her.
  • Me's a Crowd: She can split up her body to create clones, a trait possessed by slimes in general.
  • Power Tattoo: She has purple tattoos on the right side of her body.
  • Worf Had the Flu: After defeating her, it's suggested that she only lost due to being conflicted over her master's orders.

Laura

The Queen of the mermaids. Due to her painful history with humans, she bears an immense grudge against them. She participates in Alice XV's war on humanity.

  • Dark And Troubled Past: In the past, before pockets of coexistence between humans and monsters were present, she saved a man named Alan from a mortal injury from ravenous sharks using the healing power of her mermaid blood. The two of them eventually fell in love, but were discovered. Laura was sentenced to be executed due to this, and as such she asked that her execution is done by skewering, so that she would have the most bloodiest death possible so that Alan could survive using the blood she would leave behind. Alan learned of this however and couldn't bear to live without his Beloved and, in his grief, voluntarily drank a batch of poison in hoping it would spare her after his death. When she heard of this, Laura fled back to the sea, now with a very deep grudge against humans.
  • Knight Templar: Unlike some of the other invaders, she doesn't need any brainwashing magic to be convinced to attack humans.

El

Laura's daughter and the future Queen Mermaid. She was conceived using semen from Alan that Laura kept stored in her body, even after Alan's death. She leads the mermaid invasion of San Ilia.

  • Little Miss Badass: Despite her young age, she's chosen to lead the mermaid invasion of San Ilia.

Queen Vampire

The ruler of the vampire race. She orders the invasion of Sabasa during Alice XV's war on humanity.

  • Might Makes Right: A firm believer in this. It is why she follows the Monster Lord and wishes to subjugate the weaker humans, but also why she surrenders to the party after they prove strong enough to defeat her.
  • Pet The Dog: It's mentioned that she's considerate towards those who follow her and protects them from danger. This is especially apparent in her interactions with the younger vampire Vanilla.

Carmilla

One of the direct subordinates of the Queen Vampire. She is one of the leaders of the vampire invasion of Sabasa.

  • Meaningful Name: She has the same name as a female vampire in the novel of the same name, though she doesn't appear to be a lesbian like her namesake.
  • Recurring Boss: She's fought twice, during the invasion of Sabasa and inside the vampire castle.

Elizabeth

One of the direct subordinates of the Queen Vampire. She is one of the leaders of the vampire invasion of Sabasa.

  • High-Class Glass: She wears a monocle on her left eye.
  • Recurring Boss: She's fought twice, during the invasion of Sabasa and inside the vampire castle.

Queen Fairy

The Queen of fairies. She leads the invasion of Grand Noah during Alice XV's war on humanity. However, she is actually brainwashed into doing so by Azi Dahaka.

  • Green Thumb: As the Queen Fairy, she can control plants as if they were a part of her own body.

Queen Elf

The Queen of elves, whose real name is Freya. She, along with Queen Fairy, orders the invasion of Grand Noah. However, she is actually brainwashed into doing so by Azi Dahaka.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: A powerful magic used by Azi Dahaka to brainwash Queen Alraune inadvertently affects her as well, amplifying her existing hatred towards humans.
  • Fangirl: She is extremely interested in the Coliseum, but steadfastly refuses to admit it.
  • Not Helping Your Case: Despite her denials, she repeatedly gives away her interest in the Coliseum. Her condition for joining the party is for them to win two trophies from the Coliseum, she explains in detail how to obtain these trophies, and she also recounts the history of the Coliseum when prompted.
  • Telepathy: She is capable of this (as shown when she contacts Elf Princess), using it to have conversations and even send images.

Queen Alraune

The Queen of plant monsters, noted for her peaceful nature. However, she is brainwashed by Azi Dahaka.

  • Batman Gambit: She tricks Alra Priestess into becoming the new Queen Alraune by exploiting her reluctance. She claims that the creation of a Queen requires a ceremony involving a special sapling. When you obtain the sapling, Alra Priestess destroys it to avoid becoming Queen... except that this releases the energy inside, transforming her into the new Queen Alraune. Morever, Queen Alraune states that this same trick has been used by every generation and that she herself fell victim to it.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Azi Dahaka uses powerful magic to alter her mind. This causes her to order the Queen Elf killed after she loses to Luka's party.
  • Idol Singer: She wanted to be one in her youth.
  • Not So Above It All: In contrast to her usual dignity, she laughs creepily when she has succeeded in tricking Alra Priestess into becoming the new Queen Alraune. Her laugh is remarkably similar to Alra Priestess', to drive home the point. On top of that, she rejoices at no longer having to handle so many responsibilities, the exact reason why Alra Priestess didn't want the position in the first place.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her skin and plant parts are both purple, and she's the former leader of plant monsters.

Spider Princess

The ruler of spider monsters and an infamous tyrant. She leads the invasion of Grangold during Alice XV's war on humanity.

  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: When the party challenges her, she claims that she'll become Luka's mistress if she loses. After being defeated, she pretends that the agreement was for her to become his fiance instead (despite Luka not agreeing to that part in the first place). She then starts talking about wedding arrangements.
  • The Worf Effect: She and her entire race are defeated by Neris prior to her introduction.

Monster World

Lilith Sisters

A trio of succubi of immense power, dating to the Great Monster Wars. Created by the ancestor of all succubi, Minagi, they have strength that surpasses almost all monsters in the present day. Despite being thought long-dead, they appear in the Paradox universe.

Tropes exhibited by these characters as a whole include:

Lilith

Lilith.png

The eldest of the Lilith sisters.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Presumably the most powerful of the sisters, and their leader.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She's unfailingly kind and polite, even as she's slowly killing people.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Her temptation scene has her doing this to Luka, stuffing him inside her sweater at the same time.
  • Skewed Priorities: If you accuse her of obtaining her sweater by stealing it from humans, she's offended at the suggestion... she only steals humans' lives, not their property.
  • Sweater Girl: Amusingly, it covers more of her body than everything her younger sisters wear, combined. According to dialogue in battle, she made the sweater herself and once gave on to Morrigan, only for it to be destroyed.

Astaroth

Astaroth.png

The middle sister of the trio.

Tropes specific to this character include:

Morrigan

Morrigan.png

The youngest of the Lilith Sisters and the first one encountered by Luka's party. On the Alice route, she can be recruited after the end of Part 2.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • An Arm And A Leg: On the Ilias route, she's forced to cut off her own arm to escape the hold of Sonya.
  • Bait and Switch: She appears in the same place that Alma Elma did in the original game, and also offers to duel them while holding back. When the party is starting to win thanks to her handicap, she's annoyed that they haven't given up and prepares to kill them.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: When she joins the party, she is weaker than usual due to having her energy drained by Sonya.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: The only reason the party stands a chance in the battle against her is her deliberately holding back. Once she decides to kill them anyway, the only reason they survive is Zion's intervention.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: She can be recruited on the Alice route, at the very end of Chapter 2.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: When fighting with Zion, they sink an entire ship as collateral damage.
  • Power Glows: It's described as a psychokinetic aura, which she uses to fight.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Inverted. She's the reckless one compared to her older sister Astaroth.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Six Ancestors

The six monsters who were first created by the Dark Goddess Alice I, and are the ancestors of all other monsters.

Tropes exhibited by these characters as a whole include:
  • Living Legend: All six of these beings are literal beacons of dread for all who remember them, this goes especially for both Minagi and Tamamo no Mae (the original, untempered/cruel variation of her), for they have done many unspeakable acts of varying terror.

Saja

The ancestor of harpies, lamias and dragons. She first appears by intruding on the vision Raphaela shows Luka.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • Godiva Hair: A variation in which the hair is two snakes, each covering one breast.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: A literal example, having snakes for hair.
  • Lamia: She's the ancestor of them.
  • Order Versus Chaos: She argues for chaos, as she believes that the order proposed by Raphaela and the angel side is no different from slavery.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: She's the ancestor of them, though it's not really apparent from her appearance.

Tamamo no Mae

The ancestor of all beast monsters (including kitsunes). She first appears during the invasion of Grangold Castle, revealing herself to be the one responsible for the corruption of Grangold.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • God Save Us From the Queen: She's the de facto queen of Grangold, leading it to war against the other three nations and turning its citizens into unthinking pawns.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: With emphasis on the "hopeless". If you somehow manage to win the fight against her, she decides to stop holding back and instantly defeats the party with one attack. And even winning this fight is extraordinarily difficult as she has higher stats (other than HP) than even Black Alice! You pretty much need a party geared for the Labyrinth of Chaos to stand a chance against her.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Her battle with the other Tamamo, Nero and Neris causes all of Grangold castle to collapse.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her very existence spoils the reason for Grangold's actions and the fact that Tamamo is one of the Six Ancestors.

Minagi

The ancestor of succubi and vampires. She has yet to make any appearances in the games (a parallel version of her, who is still sealed, appears in the anime OVA); this information is based on her profile.

  • Anything That Moves: She's willing to have sex with any man. While not confirmed, judging from other succubi in the setting, she probably wouldn't have any problems with women either.
  • Horny Devils: She's the ancestor of succubi.
  • Sobriquet: With the title “Great Whore of Babylon”, you know that she earned this specific label for VERY damn good reason to be especially wary of...!
  • Squishy Wizard: Played with. She's good at magic and is the least resilient of the Six Ancestors. On the other hand, she's an expert martial artist.

Angel World

Zion

One of the three second-generation Seraphs of the Angel World. In her first appearance, she attacks the ship transporting the party to the Sentora, in an attempt to kill Morrigan.

  • Fantastic Racism: She hates succubi (and monsters in general), devoting so much attention to attacking Morrigan that she doesn't care if Luka's party gets caught up in the middle.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She wears a boot on her left foot while her right is bare, and her left arm is cybernetic but not her right.
  • Putting on the Reich: She wears a military uniform.

Gnosis

One of the three second-generation Seraphs of the Angel World. She first appears at the summit of Holy Mount Amos, having mortally wounded Micaela.

  • Body Horror: Her entire abdomen is missing, exposing a jagged metallic spine.
  • Game Face: When ready to fight, the upper part of her face is in shadow and she opens a mouth full of sharp teeth.
  • Hero-Killer: She's the one responsible for the death of the Paradox world Micaela. However, she admits that she would not have been able to defeat Micaela in her prime.

Eden

One of the three second-generation Seraphs of the Angel World.


Seven Archangels

Seven extraordinarily powerful angels who were only created by Ilias in the Angel World, and are on par with the Six Ancestors. They do not fit the "Archangel" rank within the normal angelic hierarchy.

Tropes exhibited by these characters as a whole include:



Raphaela

One of the Seven Archangels. She first appears when Luka enters Esta, showing him a vision of Esta's inhabitants within the Angel World in order to sway him to her side.

Tropes specific to this character include:
  • The Evils of Free Will: Believes that humans do not need free will if it means they risk making bad decisions, and only need to follow Ilias' orders.
  • Order Versus Chaos: She argues for the order side, as she believes that it brings happiness and prosperity to all.
  • Stripperiffic: Her dress is slit to the hips and it exposes not just her cleavage but also her areolae.

Gabriela

One of the Seven Archangels. She rules over the Safina region of the Angel World, which is a major agricultural region. She has yet to make any appearances; this information is based on her profile.

  • Green Thumb: She has the power to manipulate plants.
  • Plant Person: Her right arm is an enormous flower. She's also weak to fire as a result.

Black Alice's Faction

Black Alice

Black Alice (Monster Girl Quest).png

The eighth Monster Lord, a notorious tyrant who was eventually killed by the legendary hero Heinrich. Now, she appears to have somehow resurfaced, and is one of the contenders for the Monster Lord position.

  • Alice Allusion: She looks the part, and used a drug called White Rabbit.
  • Back From the Dead: Although in a different way than expected; she appears to be the same Black Alice from the original game (or an alternate world similar to it), having somehow survived her defeat at the hands of Luka and Alice.
  • Creepy Child: Gives off an extremely strong impression of this, though she isn't really a child.
  • The Man Behind The Man: A literal example, she first appears behind Kagetsumugi's throne.
  • Monster Lord

Kagetsumugi

Kagetsumugi (Paradox).png

A strange monster who lives within the Puppeteer's Tower. A legendary puppeteer, her skills in this field are believed to overshadow those of the Artiste family. The party can visit her while searching for Magical Thread for Chrome. She is actually working with Black Alice, and has procured a powerful army for her.

  • Badass Army: She has recruited powerful monsters and turned the corpses of former Monster Lords into puppets, all to serve her master.
  • Marionette Master: She comes from a line of legendary puppeteers, said to be unrivaled in this field. Notably, she manages to create puppets out of the corpses of former Monster Lords!

Izanami

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction.


Sun Wukong

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction. She first appears in the Cow Demon Queen's castle, intending to take control of the minotaur army gathered there.

  • Amazonian Beauty: She has extremely well-defined abs, like other characters by the same artist.
  • Loose Lips: She lets slip her affiliation and intentions when the party first meets her.
  • Me's a Crowd: Like her mythological counterpart, she can create clones of herself, as showcased in her rape scene.
  • Meaningful Name: Sun Wukong, known as Son Goku in Japan, is a major character in Journey to the West.
  • Simple Staff: Her weapon, fitting for her character.
  • Worf Had the Flu: After being defeated the first time, she claims that must have eaten too much sukiyaki.

Quetzalcoatl

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction.

  • Arch Enemy: She and Tezcatlipoca absolutely hate each other, and get into fights despite nominally being on the same side.
  • Boobs Of Steel: They're literally as big as Luka's entire body.
  • Meaningful Name: Quetzalcoatl is a major deity in Aztec mythology, whose name means "feathered serpent" and who often takes on this form.
  • Worf Had the Flu: When you defeat her, she claims that she is exhausted from her previous fight with Tezcatlipoca.

Tezcatlipoca

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction.

  • Arch Enemy: She and Quetzalcoatl absolutely hate each other, and get into fights despite nominally being on the same side.
  • Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny: Instead of attempting to rule the plants, or even preparing to fight Quetzalcoatl again, she chases butterflies.
  • Meaningful Name: Tezcatlipoca is a major deity in Aztec mythology for whom the jaguar is a sacred animal.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Her left eye is yellow while her right eye is blue.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: She has the lower body of a jaguar.
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Worf Had the Flu: When you defeat her, she claims that she is exhausted from her previous fight with Quetzalcoatl.
  • Verbal Tic: "nyaa", the Japanese onomatopeia for a cat's sound.

Azi Dahaka

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction.


Himiko

One of the legendary monsters who has joined Black Alice's faction.


Other

Nero

Nero (Paradox).png

A bizarrely-dressed stranger who the party encounters several times. Though he doesn't reveal his motivations, he helps them out in many ways. It's strongly implied that he is the son of Luka and Alice from another universe, though which one isn't clear. His current purpose is unknown, but he and his sister seem to be helping out Luka's party.

  • A Taste of Power: You get to control him if Luka's party loses to the Armored Berserker. Nero is far more powerful than your party members can be in Part 1 (barring grinding for Seeds) and has an enormous skillset. It's basically impossible to lose unless you try.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Don't be fooled by his mild demeanour - when he decides to fight, he can decapitate even Eldritch Abominations like the White Rabbit.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes to Neris' rescue against the White Rabbit (though it's unclear whether she needed the help) and to the party's rescue against the Armored Berserker. He and Neris later help out Tamamo against her alternate-universe counterpart.
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer: Highly questionable fashion sense, a ridiculously oversized weapon, and a massive ham in battle... but he's one of the most powerful characters in the series.
  • Casting a Shadow
  • Cool Shades: It's questionable whether they're even needed, or if he just wears them for the appearance.
  • Counter Attack: Daystar.
  • Cover-Blowing Superpower: When he uses his true power against the Armored Berserker, he reveals himself to have both the appearance of the Monster Lords' bloodline, as well as angelic wings of energy. You can also look through his list of skills and find both angelic skills (including Daystar, only possessed by Lucifina and her descendants) and dark skills (including Monster Lord's Cruelty, only possessed by Monster Lords). For anyone with the slightest knowledge of the original game, Nero's real identity is obvious.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Supposedly manages to decapitate the White Rabbit, though it doesn't leave any lasting damage.
  • Heinz Hybrid: Apparently, he's half-monster, a quarter-human, and a quarter-angel.
  • Large Ham: In battle, he tends to make rather grandiose declarations.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: The only way to describe his outfit. Apparently, he made it himself.
  • Nephilim: A quarter-angel. It allows him to use holy power and causes wings of rainbow light to appear when he fights.
  • Nice Guy: Apparently in the blood. Exaggerated, to the point that he goes out of his way to clean up the messes in the abandoned Harpy Village, even tuning a piano.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He claims that if he and Neris worked together, they could destroy the entire Snow Continent.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Sinister Scythe: An enormous one.
  • Superpower Lottery: A definite winner. As demonstrated when the player briefly controls him, he has access to high-level holy and dark magic, as well as space and time magic, and is a Master Swordsman on top of that.
  • Time Master: Can both stop time, and move when someone else has stopped time.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Can use both light and dark magic, thanks to his lineage.

Neris

Neris.png

A strange monster who first appears to defeat Nanabi for the party. Known as the mysterious Alice XVII, she's considered one of the three contenders for the Monster Lord's throne. It's strongly implied that she is the daughter of Luka and Alice XVI from another universe, though which one isn't clear. Her current purpose is unknown, but she and her brother seem to be helping out Luka's party.

  • BFS: Wields one, as shown in promotional images.
  • Big Damn Heroes: On two occasions. She effortlessly defeats Nanabi when the party is struggling against her, and similarly rescues them from the Armored Berserker, alongside her brother.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": She hates being called Alice XVII, preferring the name Neris.
  • The Dreaded: After her rampage across the world, she's feared by monsters everywhere for her incredible power.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter With Hair Decs: She has red ribbons in her hair.
  • Horny Devils: Subverted. She looks like a succubus without the horns or tail, but her true form is actually lamia-shaped like her mother.
  • Nephilim: If her proposed lineage is true, she'd be a quarter-angel, three-quarters monster.
  • One Man Army: A definite example. In one day, she conquers Plansect Village, defeats Cassandra and her allies, defeats and exiles the Arachne faction, and fights Granberia to a draw. All while apparently holding back her true power. She's seen as this in-universe too, being considered one of the three contenders for the title of Monster Lord despite (seemingly) being on her own.
  • Parental Incest: For some reason, after defeating Nanabi, she hits on Luka. Granted, it's not the same Luka as her father, but it's still odd.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Nero claims that if he and Neris worked together, they could destroy the entire Snow Continent.
  • Playing With Fire: The only attack she uses onscreen is Vaporising Rebellion Sword.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Stripperiffic: To say the least.
  • Time Master: A subtle example. When the White Rabbit stops time before trying to attack Neris, Nero intervenes, and the two disappear. Neris then comments on this, suggesting that she was also capable of moving during the time stop.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: As the implied daughter of Luka and Alice, she can use both holy and dark power.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: While it isn't the same shade, it may have come from her father's side. Though it isn't actually her real hair color.
  • Younger Than She Looks: If she is in fact the daughter who was conceived at the end of the original game, then she should be the same age as Nero, but she doesn't look it. Some fans have joked that she inherited Luka's small stature.

Marcellus

Character Image.jpg

Luka's father, a hero who set off after the Great Disaster occurred, helping those in need. Before the events of the game, he disappeared, and Luka makes it his objective to find him. It turns out that he has gained many cybernetic modifications, and is now on a quest to save the very multiverse.

  • BFS: An enormous green one.
  • Cyborg: It's not clear how or why, but his left arm and parts of his face are cybernetic... and that's just the parts that we can see.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Luka in the nick of time from Adramelech.
  • The Ghost: Off-screen for most of Part 1, only interacting with the party via letters he left in various places.
  • One-Scene Wonder: He makes one appearance in each of Part 1 and 2.
  • Space Master: Like Luka, he can travel between alternate universes.

White Rabbit

White Rabbit (Paradox).png

A mysterious woman who appears throughout the game and appears to lead the party around. It isn't clear whether she is a monster, a human in a costume, or something else entirely.

  • Alice Allusion: Lampshaded. Not only is her name an allusion, but she can literally lead around a person named Alice.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She creates a pile of dirt at the entrance to the third Tartarus, which automatically moves to block anyone trying to get in. Only Gnome can undo the barrier.
  • Nigh Invulnerability: She is repeatedly vaporized by the Paradox Ilias (via lightning), yet comes back seemingly-unharmed each time.
  • Physical God: She can stop time, is apparently capable of surviving decapitation, and is implied to be an equal to Reaper.
  • Reality Warper: Among other feats, she can transfer people between universes, which she uses at one point to force the party into a boss battle.
  • Stealth Mentor: Possibly. She does give advice to the party on several occasions.
  • Time Master: Can stop time.
  • The Worf Effect: When she stops time in preparation to kill Neris, Nero interferes and lands a hit on her.

Reaper

Reaper (Paradox).png

A mysterious woman found in Hades, who appears to be the personification of death itself. Reaper provides a number of services: returning a dead Luka to the world of the living; allowing you to change the difficulty; removing the male characters (except Luka) from the party; and once you've cleared the first chapter, the option to start New Game Plus.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification
  • Back From the Dead: Probably the service that players use the most.
  • Bonus Boss: She was the strongest one in Part 1. While the superbosses in the Labyrinth of Chaos were stronger than her normal self, her Labyrinth version was arguably still the strongest of the superbosses. Part 2 introduced bonus bosses of equal or greater strength.
  • Foil: To the White Rabbit. Both are incredibly powerful beings with mysterious goals, who seem to know about the threats facing the world. Both have the same ability to control space and time. Their color schemes are inverted, with Reaper having red hair and black clothing while the White Rabbit has blue hair and white clothing. Reaper also seems to prefer a passive role, while the White Rabbit actively guides the party around.
  • One Hit KO: As befitting her character, she has many attacks that inflict this.
  • Physical God: A definite example. She regards Adramelech, a high-ranking Apoptosis responsible for the destruction of at least one world, as a mere annoyance. Before she accepts your challenge, she requires you to first fight an alternate Alice XVI. Even without using her full power, she is the most difficult boss of Part 1.
  • Playing With Fire: Can use the ultimate fire spell, Prominence.
  • Reality Warper: Can transfer people between universes.
  • Sinister Scythe: As in traditional portrayals of the Grim Reaper. It has what look like small faces at the junction of the blade and handle.
  • Time Master: Her Labyrinth version can use Chaos Drive, which stops time for 3 turns. It even stops the battle music!

Adramelech

Adramelek.png

A high-ranking Apoptosis encountered in the dying world beyond the third Tartarus. She was involved in the destruction of that world, and assaults the party in the Administrator's Tower.

  • Body Horror: To the point that it almost defies description. Tentacles, asymmetrical wings, a gaping mouth lined with sharp teeth, flesh that seems to include metallic and crystalline components... And even with all of that, she has a roughly human-shaped body.
  • Clock Roaches: Like other Apoptosis, her role is to prevent the spread of Chaos, no matter the cost.
  • Combat Tentacles
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: She's at 10% of her normal power when she intercepts the party, thanks to La Croix's last stand.
  • Combat Tentacles
  • Half the Man He Used To Be: Marcellus cuts her in half.
  • Implacable Man: Nothing can stop her from pursuing her goal:
    • She was defeated by La Croix several times, only to return stronger each time.
    • La Croix sacrifices herself and her remaining soldiers in a last stand against Adramelech, only for the latter to break through (albeit heavily weakened).
    • Luka's party manages to defeat her, but she returns almost immediately and attempts to drag Luka down into the void. Only Marcellus' intervention stops her.
  • Physical God: Given that a mere 10% of her normal power is enough to act as the final boss, and she can erase Ilias of all people from existence, she probably qualifies for this.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts this on Luka, but Marcellus saves him by killing her.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Sort of. If you lose to her and go to the Evaluation, Ilias will begin as normal, only for Adramelech to arrive and delete Ilias from existence.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Like any other Apoptosis. One of her attacks, Necrosis, does both Holy and Dark damage.

Armored Berserker

Armored Berserker (Paradox).png

A mysterious figure that appears in the Forest of Spirits, resembling a knight in a grotesque, twisted suit of armor. Despite its appearance, it doesn't seem to be hostile, but the moment Luka's party arrives, it attacks them. It is heavily implied that this is the legendary hero Heinrich Hein, whose body was mentioned in the original game to have been consumed by holy energy from the angels he'd killed. However, it's not certain if it's the Heinrich of the Paradox universe, or an alternate one (though the former seems unlikely, given that he apparently wields his own copy of Angel Halo.

  • Animated Armor: In appearance, at least.
  • Berserk Button: Angels, whom it attacks on sight. Given his implied identity, it makes some sense.
  • BFS: It wields a two-handed sword, a distorted version of Angel Halo.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: On both the giving and receiving ends. It effortlessly crushes the party, only for Nero to intervene and take it down easily.
  • Expy: To Berserker from Fate/Zero. Note only do they look similar, but they both tend to pursue their Berserk Button with single-minded fury. They're also both former heroes who've been corrupted. Though unlike his counterpart, the Armored Berserker doesn't attack anyone else.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Like Nanabi before him, the Berserker is far too powerful if you've been levelling normally. You're meant to lose and be rescued by Nero and Neris. However, if you do manage to defeat him, the two siblings won't appear and an alternative cutscene will play. Luka will still gain access to his angelic powers, as in the normal course of events.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Its body and weapon appear to be made of countless metal angels, melted together into a single mass. On top of that, it's surrounded by a swirling black miasma.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: To anything that isn't an angel. The inhabitants of the Forest are surprised by this.
  • Playing With Fire: Has access to the fire-elemental Heroism skill, Red Lotus Flame Dance.
