The Royal Family
Eliya Von Tasmeria
The Queen Dowager. As she was the sole descendant of the royal family, they welcomed a son-in-law to be taken into the family, and together they ruled the governance. After her husband passed away, she ruled the government until the young crown prince turned into an adult. After the crown prince succeeded the throne and showed that he was suited to the throne, she retired and moved into the dowager palace. It seems that she was sheltering and taking care of Alfred and Leticia behind the stage. She is fond of Mellice.
The first prince who hardly made an appearance yet in the original story. In the game, the setting was that he was studying abroad, but in reality, it seems that he is living in his own country.
Alfred’s little sister from the same mother who’s living in the dowager palace. She still hasn’t made her appearance in the original story.
Edward Tom Tasmeria
The second prince. He is a capturable target in the game.
The current king’s real consort, the mother of Alfred and Leticia. She passed away shortly after giving birth to Leticia. Unusually for the nobles, she was in a marriage of love. Despite she was only an Earl’s daughter, the king managed to overcome the oppositions and made her his consort.
The king’s concubine, the daughter of Marquis Maelia. She is prince Edward’s mother. Properly speaking, although she was the daughter of a family suitable to be the true consort, she married into the royal family as a concubine. There are a lot of dark rumors going around about it. Edward’s burning red hair is inherited from her.
“The royal family is really muddled with rumors, huh-? As nothing but retainers, this situation is really troublesome.”
“Even still, Iris. In all ages and countries, the right to inherit the throne has always been something to cause a dispute for, right?”
“That’s true… But isn’t that the kind of historical stories during the time when the kingdom was falling in danger? Like during the 7th king or 13th king ruling… Anyhow to be frank, from my standpoint as someone who’s protecting the population of a fief, the royal family’s troubles are nothing more than annoyances.”
“Well, that’s right~”
“Even for you, Rudy, as someone who’s protecting the territory of Marquis Anderson, don’t you also think so?”
“I do think like that a little, but… as expected, perhaps due to carrying the blood of a warrior, I’d rather think about ways to protect the master I’m serving.”
“Hee… Speaking of which, your master is…? Ah, wait, Rudy. Where are you going?”
