Kazuya Kujo (久城 一弥, Kujō Kazuya?)
Voiced by: Miyu Irino (Drama CD)
Takuya Eguchi (Anime)
The main character of the story. As the youngest son of a soldier, Kazuya has spent most of his life struggling with living in his highly successful siblings' shadows. Jealous of all the attention his brothers got, he worked hard to compete, but everything changed when he understood that adults, who think that the youngest child is always spoiled and useless, will never acknowledge his efforts. With a permanent scar in his heart he left the military academy in Japan and before anyone from his family could stop him, went to study abroad to St. Marguerite. Unfortunately, his appearance, combined with the student body's belief that "the traveler who comes in the spring brings death with him" has resulted in Kazuya being called the "Reaper" and having no friends. By some twist of fate he becomes a messenger and companion to the most eccentric pupil in the school, Victorique. At first he didn't like Victorique because of her arrogant attitude, but after some time he started to care for her and be protective of her. He is described, by Victorique, as a good and sincere person whose soul is pure and beautiful enough to admit pride. Despite everything that happened in Japan he is proud to be a soldier's son.
Victorique de Blois (ヴィクトリカ・ド・ブロワ, Vikutorika do Burowa?)
Voiced by: Chiwa Saitou (Drama CD)
Aoi Yuuki (Anime)
The heroine of the story. Victorique has the appearance of a small, almost doll-like, girl with long hair and emerald eyes and a voice that sounds exactly like that of an old woman. Another important part of Victorique's appearance is a pipe that she smokes when thinking about something. Along with her sharp tongue, abusive bluntness and eccentric attitude, she possesses amazing detective skills and Kazuya soon finds himself getting dragged into many crime investigations after a near-arrest that Victorique saved him from. Because of her half aristocratic blood and behavior different from other children she was raised cut off from the world in the depths of the de Blois mansion. And then she was sent off to school, under strict orders to never leave the campus. When she first met Kazuya she didn't like him and thought that he was annoying and stupid for climbing up all the stairs in the library, even going as far as ignoring him or making fun of him, but gradually she warmed up to him and began to trust and cherish him.
Grevil de Blois (グレヴィール・ド・ブロワ, Gurevīru do Burowa?)
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Drama CD)
Hidenobu Kiuchi (Anime)
Grevil is an aristocrat who had forced the local police to make him a detective purely because he had an interest in crime. The most noticeable thing in his appearance is his drill-like hairstyle that Kazuya thinks could be used as a deadly weapon. Despite being a terrible detective and always having to rely on Victorique to solve his crimes, he refuses to acknowledge she even exists. That is because he is Victorique's half brother and even if they are family they could never acknowledge each other in public. His mother was their father's proper wife and because he is the eldest son he takes all the glory for solving crimes and will take over after their father dies. He is described by Victorique as a heel and a playboy.
