Revered high-elf goddess incarnate
Celestine Lucross
A high elf revered as the reincarnation of the Goddess Larentia, who is widely worshipped by the people of Eos. She is adored, respected, and loved by all of the people of the Seven Shield Alliance, but in that same vein, she is abhored by all demons. Her flawless skin and beauty are known far and wide.

“I have faith in everybody... I pray for us... And I will continue to watch until the very end...”

Supreme dark-elven matriarch
Olga Dischordia
Voice: Tokio Aoi
The dark-elf queen of a fallen kingdom, with long black hair and a perpetual, almost melancholic expression. Pure dark elves are extremely rare, rarer even than high elves. She considers dark elves to be a noble race far and above other races. As a witch, she possesses the unique ability to increase the physical prowess of monsters several times over—and is the cause of hundreds of years of war and atrocities.

“This... is a holy site... You cannot enter it...”

Faithful royal retainer
Voice: Tori King
Young knightess and loyal attendant to Olga, having sworn lifelong allegiance to her queen. She is half dark elf, half mortal, but despises all men because of the terrible treatment she suffered at human hands from birth until Olga took her in. Exceedingly straight-laced.

“I will serve my queen until my body wastes away...”

Proud princess knight
Alicia Arcturus
Voice: Ichigo Momoi
The beautiful sole daughter of the Arcturus family, a prestigious noble family in Eos. As commander of the Knights of St. Iris—the main military unit at Fortress One—she is highly respected and admired by her subordinates. Her skills are a credit to her own perseverance and not a reflection of her bloodline. Minister Beardsley is plotting against her somehow, though she remains oblivious.

“This is absurd... This is treachery... I will not forgive that man...!”

Mysterious Eastern priestess
Voice: Mariya Kurata
The leader of Fortress Three, she is the chief of a group of priestesses who worship strange gods. Always quiet, with a vague air that makes it difficult to read her mind. While attentive to her subordinates, she is essentially uninterested in anything other than the gods she serves. She is now being targeted by an Evocator, who was once a member of her group but has fallen off the righteous path, and is now set on subjecting her to an experiment to create a god to surpass all gods...

“Our task... is to behave as the gods desire...”

Ex-captain of the Holy Knights
Claudia Levantine
Voice: Mei Misonoo
Leader of a knighthood that defends Fortress Six and Fortress Seven, she also serves as the high elf Celestine’s personal bodyguard. A moral woman married to a civilian named Klaus, when it comes to battle, she is as formidable as a war god. Though happily married, she has yet to bear a child.

“Please be at ease. All the armies of the Seven Shields Alliance will fight together and crush our foe.”


Eos, the western plains of the continent of Serenus—

With the dark-elven queen’s influence finally waning, the centuries-long war between the allied races and her demon army seems to be entering its final phase...

Desperate to end the bloodshed once and for all, the Seven Shields Alliance—seven strongholds along Eos’s northernmost border united by an elven reincarnation of the Goddess Larentia—seek out the assistance of the protagonist Vult and his Black Dog Mercenaries.

However, the young Vult wastes no time in betraying them, moving his headquarters to the realm of the dark elf Queen Olga herself!

Shock, panic, indignation, then grief... Eos’s inhabitants cannot believe their fate at the hands of this treacherous “hero” as he leads his minions into their towns and villages, and even the lands of former friends and allies.
