Character tips for the individual arc, not the overall series.
Legend of the Golden Witch Edit
Kinzo Ushiromiya Edit
Elderly head of the Ushiromiya family. Even as his precious little time left is sentenced, he is in high spirits. He amassed a vast fortune, but by not revealing anything about his succession, he torments his sons and daughters. He is influenced by the West, and is a rabid occult maniac. His study is full of strange grimoires.
Disappeared from his study unnoticed. Since Kinzo has every commodity, bed, lavatory, and bath in his study, it is extremely rare for him to go outside. Once in a while, however, it has happened that he goes out for a walk on a whim, without informing anyone, and has many times caused an uproar in the house. This would be the time when, normally, since he is hungry, he returns; however...
Burned in the incinerator, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing his forehead. An old black magician, he dies without his wishes being granted. This is one fact of the evil wager that he knew from the beginning.
Krauss Ushiromiya Edit
Kinzo's first child. As the eldest son of four siblings, he is in a position to lead the family meeting. However, to the other siblings, it seems that he is trying to monopolize the fortune, which intensifies the clash with the siblings. He is a real estate investor and is heavily interested in the development of a resort. However, the results are being severely criticized.
His corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. The direct cause of death is unknown but, it seems the side of his head was destroyed after his death. First of all, it's the beginning of everything.
Natsuhi Ushiromiya Edit
Krauss' wife. She manages the Ushiromiya family instead of her husband who doesn't pay any attention to his household. She took charge of the preparations, the arrangements, and everything for this family meeting by herself. She has a strong sense of responsibility, and is very proud. However, she is not understood by her husband and his siblings, so it can't be said that her situation is enviable.
She was found shot before the portrait of the Witch. To challenge the Witch with a firearm, she had truly no idea of her proper place. The outcome was obvious. Kihihihihihihihihihihi.
Eva Ushiromiya Edit
Kinzo's second child. Hostile towards her brother Krauss, and takes a stance to confront him in every way possible, from issues of the fortune to the succession of the head of the family. Originally she would have lost her place in the register of the Ushiromiya family when she got married, but since she made her husband, who took her family name, be recognized, the whole story forcibly came to a halt.
She was found in a guest room inside the mansion, on the bed, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing her forehead. The room had its windows and door locked from the inside, and even the chain was set. There is no way a human being could kill her.
Hideyoshi Ushiromiya Edit
Eva's husband. He was adopted into the Ushiromiya family as Eva's husband. Since he does not have the spiteful genes of the Ushiromiya family, that cheerful, smiling face is very precious in the family meetings. He started his business from scratch, and now works as president of a medium-sized restaurant chain. Its performance is extremely promising because of its growth.
He was found in a bathroom of the same guest room as Eva, and like Eva, there was an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing his forehead. No one can be seen from the chain's gap. He can't be seen and can't be reached. Hey, how could a human being kill him? Kihihihihihihihihihihihi.
Rudolf Ushiromiya Edit
Kinzo's third child. Together with his sister Eva, at the family meeting he strengthens the goal of not allowing the eldest brother Krauss monopolize their father's fortune. He lost his previous wive, Asumu, six years ago and afterwards immediately entered his second wive Kyrie in the family register.
His corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. His face is believed to have been damaged after his death. He has the right to lament his bad luck.
Kyrie Ushiromiya Edit
Rudolf's wife. Second wife. She has had a long association with him as his business partner, and after the death of his previous wife, she publicly made the place of legal wife her own. She has worked as his right arm in handling several shady pieces of business, which led them to success. She is quick thinking, and trusts Rudolf implicitly.
Her corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. Her face is believed to have been damaged after her death. The Devil's roulette chose. It's that simple.
Rosa Ushiromiya Edit
Kinzo's forth child. She is by far the youngest child of the four siblings. Because of that, it seems that she has much less influence in the family meetings. She manages a design company, but it's nothing more than a pastime and it seems that the management conditions are less than sweet-smelling.
Her corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. Her face is believed to have been damaged after her death. Another meeting is possible. So, no sadness.
George Ushiromiya Edit
Eva's and Hideyoshi's son. He is an affable young man, and is liked by everyone in the family. He is an apprentice to his father's company, and it looks like he finally has dreams of independence. He is the oldest of the four cousin and often acts as a peacemaker.
Missing. Even though he managed to meet again with all his close friends in the Golden Land, all the magic came to nothing because of a stubborn fool. Afterwards, he had even his bones gnawed upon by demons, and went to hell.
Jessica Ushiromiya Edit
Krauss' and Natsuhi's daughter. If things can go properly, one can consider that before long she will become the heiress of the Ushiromiya family (strictly speaking, her husband). However, it seems that she herself takes no interest in that. Her bronchi are weak from birth and she can have sudden asthma fits.
Missing. Even though she was beckoned to the long awaited Golden Land, all the magic ended up vanishing because of one fool who didn't believe in the Witch. Afterwards, she was torn to pieces and eaten by the demons, and went to hell.
Battler Ushiromiya Edit
The son of Rudolf and his previous wife, Asumu. Six years ago, he rebelled against his father who had entered his second wife in the very time he was bereaved of his mother. He went to live with his maternal grandparents. However, his grandparents died one after the other, and six years later, he has returned to the Ushiromiya family.
Missing. He is the fool who made the world where everyone could be happy come to nothing. Even though Beatrice is infuriated, for some reason she is enjoying herself immensely. It's as if he is an amusing toy she has obtained after one thousand years. I hope that you too can see this amusing fool soon.
Maria Ushiromiya Edit
Rosa's daughter. The father is unknown. She is often gotten mad at for using baby talk. She has no concern whatsoever for studies or friends; however, she shows a strong interest for the occult, black magic and such and memorizes as many inconsistent bits and pieces of information with her natural gift of memorization.
Genji Ronoue Edit
He is the head butler who manages the servants who work for the Ushiromiya family. He is the one who has served Kinzo the longest, and has earned his greatest trust. Since he is Kinzo's immediate servant, he is thought of as Kinzo's spy by Krauss and his wife.
Was found in the parlour, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing his stomach, and furthermore, his face destroyed. At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
Terumasa Nanjo Edit
Kinzo's attending physician and long time friend. He was a medical practitioner on Niijima, but he turned the hospital over to his son to spend his old years in tranquility. He is one of the few people Kinzo, who has grown fanatical in his suspicions, opens his heart to. He has a very big-hearted disposition, and has come to the island for a long time, never getting upset by Kinzo's hot temper.
Was found in the parlour, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing his thigh, and furthermore, his face destroyed. At the seventh twilight gouge the knee and kill.
Toshiro Gohda Edit
The servant employed as a chef. He has not served here long, but the reception talents he honed in his previous work are polished, and his appraisal is high. Since he is the servant Krauss and his wife hired, it seems he is more trusted than the senior servants who are thought of more as Kinzo's spies.
His corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. His face is believed to have been damaged after his death. Such a pity. The truth is it seems he was on duty at the guesthouse.
Chiyo Kumasawa Edit
She has resigned in the middle of her job many times, but generally speaking, she is an elderly woman who works part-time and has much experience. She knows how to get things done, and her skills as a servant are by no means small, but since she loves gossip and is quite talkative, she doesn't receive much appraisal.
Was found in the parlour, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing her calf, and furthermore, her face destroyed. At the eight twilight, gouge the leg and kill.
A young, but experienced servant. Usually, she calmly handles her work flawlessly, but when she is in a hurry, her errors increase. Furthermore, Shannon is a pseudonym strictly used during work, and is not her real name.
Her corpse was found inside the storehouse of the rose garden. The side of her head was believed to have been damaged after her death. It's alright. Everyone will resurrect in the Golden Land.
A young servant. He handles his work in silence, but he is sullen and his appraisal is not high. There are several other servants who have "on" in their pseudonym. That day, he and Shannon just happened to be on duty.
Was found in the boiler room, with an ice-pick type murder weapon piercing his chest. He truely does not know his place as furniture.
The Golden Witch who has lived a thousand years. She has already strayed from the domain of humans, and it is said that as demons do, she appears when summoned by a human and lends him her power for a comphensation of equivalent value. The things she likes are black tea and ice cream. The things she hates are boredom and people who deny her.
After pressing Execute:
It's a useless dream to try and kill me with a human body. Even if you shoot lead bullets, they will rebound to your pitiful body, as from a mirror. However, there is only one way to kill me. It is possible to grasp that way with your hands. But it's most likely impossible for a simple man like you, I suppose? Kihihihihihihihihihihihi! *cackle* *cackle* *cackle*
A witch of the Kakera who has lived for a thousand years. It is said that she lives in a world where such concepts as fate and possibility can be visualized. She appreciates the fate of humans in an aesthetic sense, and sometimes interferes. In other words, sometimes she is you, and sometimes she is your only friend. ...... Do you understand? She likes wine and spicy food. She hates boredom and people who don't learn.
After pressing Execute:
Since I keep on thinking, I will have an eternity to live. In other words, if I stop thinking, I can die at any time. But if I begin to think, I'll live again at any time. Therefore, because I am whimsical I am inconstant. Living as I wish, dying as I wish, reviving as I wish.
