Ryner is also a habitual napper,and is often caught sleeping when it is inappropriate. The main female character is his friend Ferris Eris, a excellent swords-woman and bodyguard of the royal family. She has a dark past, coming from an incestuous family that forced her into near-torturous training as a child. She is, however, obsessed with the dango, a Japanese-style dumpling. She spends much of her time chasing the delicious treat. Although Ferris thought Ryner was immature, they eventually develop a deep friendship. There are numerous other characters in the series-- royals, military personnel, mages, and foes of all kinds. Sion, the king of Roland who is only half-noble and suffers prejudice from his fully noble siblings; Lucile, Ferris's brother, who killed their parent and took over their clan; Milk, who is a re-incarnation of The Goddess and has a romantic history with Ryner.
