Who are the main characters?
Ailen Lauren Dautriche (played by Rie Takahashi) is the only daughter of Dautrish Duke of the Elmeia Empire. The shock of breaking off her engagement with the prince brings back memories of her previous life as a Japanese woman, and she realizes that she’s been reincarnated as the villainess of the otome (romance) game “Holy, Demon, and Maiden Regalia”. In order to avoid the “bad end” that the villainess is destined for, she decides to seek out the Demon King and tries to get him to marry her.
Claude Jeanne Elmir (played by Yuichiro Umehara) is a demon lord, who is also the first prince of the Elmeia Empire. Because he was born with red eyes the people believe that he is the reincarnation of the Demon King. His catchphrase is, “The weather around you depends on how you feel at the moment.”
Cedric Jeanne Elmir (played by Toshiki Masuda) is Aileen’s former fiancé, Claude’s half-brother, and the second prince of the Elmeia Empire. Aileen remembers that his true identity is the capture target/hero of the otome game “Holy, Hemon, and Maiden Regalia”. Cedric has a complex in regard to his older brother and as he strives to be an excellent crown prince has grown quite prideful.
Who are the supporting characters?
Keith Agrid (played by Jun Fukuyama) is the second son of a distinguished viscount family. He’s the Demon King’s childhood friend despite the fact that he’s a human and not a monster. Despite his gentle-looking appearance and glasses, during Cedric’s capture route it was discovered that he was selling monsters. Once Claude learned of this he flew into a rage and killed Keith.
Belzebuth (played by Yuki Ono) is a monster who adores Claude and has pledged his loyalty to him. He has lived for over a thousand years and his power is only second to Claude. He has protected Claude since he was a baby and would do anything to protect him. He sometimes makes confusing, outrageous remarks.
Lilia Rainworth (played by Kana Hanazawa) is Cedric’s fiancée and the protagonist of the otome game “Holy, Hemon, and Maiden Regalia”. Depending on the route of the game she can become the maiden of the holy sword, or become the heroine, who confronts Claude, who has awakened as a demon lord. Lilia is a pretty, kind-hearted girl with a strong sense of justice.
Almond (played by Tomokazu Sugita) is a raven monster that is capable of human speech. He is often seen wearing a red bow tie. Almond performs a wide variety of missions, including gathering information from the sky and transporting letters.
