Characters TIPS

Kinzo Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Discovered as a burnt corpse from the incinerator in the underground boiler room. As there were no signs that he fought to get out of the incinerator, it seems reasonable to think that he was burned after he was murdered. Dust to dust. Ashes to ashes. The dead to the dead.

Krauss Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: His corpse was found inside the chapel. The immediate cause of death is uncertain, but it seems his stomach was cut open and his intestines were pulled out after his death. And also, sweets were stuffed into his stomach. Welcome Maria. Happy Halloween.

Natsuhi Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. Her head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that she was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that she was killed with a gun...

Eva Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. Her head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that she was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that she was killed with a gun...

Hideyoshi Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. His head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that he was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that he was killed with a gun...

Rudolf Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. His head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that he was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that he was killed with a gun...

Kyrie Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Her corpse was found inside the chapel. The immediate cause of death is uncertain, but it seems her stomach was cut open and her intestines were pulled out after her death. And also, sweets were stuffed into her stomach. So, I'll take you to the country of the dreams. Happy Halloween.

Rosa Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. Her head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that she was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that she was killed with a gun...

George Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: At Natsuhi's room, he died by having his stomach pierced by an icepick-type murder weapon. At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill. Perhaps, they could have been the second twilight.

Jessica Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: She was found in her own room inside the mansion, with an icepick type murder weapon piercing her back. At least in her last moments, she was together with the person she loved so much. She surely was happy.

Battler Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Missing. For a moment, he surrendered to the witch, but he regained his willpower and fight again. Is Battler indeed a toy that's worth breaking to the witch? That being the case, it is possible that she will break him in moderation, fix him, and then break him again. Her torture is meaningless if she kills him. She must alternate between tormenting him and letting him rest.

Maria Ushiromiya

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.
Upon Death: Missing. At the Golden Land, she could know her Mama still loves her. For now, she is satisfied.

Genji Ronoue

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the dining hall. His head was half destroyed. It seems reasonable to think that he was murdered with something like a powerful gun. However, the witnesses don't believe that he was killed with a gun...

Terumasa Nanjo

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.
Upon Death: At the servants room, he died by having his throat cut by something like a sharp blade. But, this alone was not enough.
Upon Death (2): The missing corpse was later found at the courtyard. This time, he had an icepick-type murder weapon thrust into his knee. With this, the seventh twilight is finished.

Toshiro Gohda

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the third-floor waiting room. The murder weapon is assumed to be a gun or spear-shaped object. He wanted to gain Kinzo's favor. The room next to the study is appropriate for him.

Chiyo Kumasawa

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the second-floor guest room. The murder weapon is assumed to be a gun or spear-shaped object. The seldom-used guest room on the second floor was her secret napping spot.

Shannon

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the parlor on the first floor. The murder weapon is assumed to be a gun or spear-shaped object. For Shannon, the parlor, whose view of the rose garden was beautiful on sunnier days.

Kanon

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.
Upon Death: Corpse discovered in the chapel. The murder weapon is assumed to be a gun or spear-shaped object. The chapel for Kanon. Even after death, keep on protecting the place important to the Lord.

Beatrice

The Golden Witch who has lived a thousand years. She has surpassed the limited of humans and will, just as demons do, appear in response to a human's summons to lend them her power for a price. She likes black tea and ice cream. She hates boredom and people who deny her existence.
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*

Beatrice (Meta-World)

The Endless Witch who has lived for a thousand years. She is known for being exceptionally cruel, evne among witches. She loves bullying the weak and is capable of using trial-and-error endlessly to find the cruelest fate they can possibly be given. And she toys with her victims even further by piling on one after another. This witch is extremely powerful, but word has it that she sometimes becomes obsessed with the art of creating certain patternns, so that her means end up becoming her goals.

Sakutarou

Maria onee-chan's precious friend. Very simple, warm and kind. Tends to say "Uryuu". Didn't Maria onee-chan also have a habit of saying this, long ago?
Upon Death: Lady MARIA's pure white heart, torn asunder. His broken vessel can only be regenerated by Rosa, the Meister who made him. However, Rosa disposed of all the vessel's scraps, and even lost the sewing pattern. On top of this, because his existence was denied by the Meister herself, resurrecting him is impossible. With the Meister's death in 1986, his resurrection was lost forever. Resurrecting him is impossible even for the Endless Witch, Beatrice...

Eva Ushiromiya (1998)

After being repeatedly hospitalized because of psychogenic stress, she has already died in the world of 1998 due to acute heart failure.She lived her later years in isolation, with no one to understand her, and is the only survivor from Rokkenjima. The media gave her the name "Queen of Suspicion". She continued to make reckless expansions of her business just like Kinzo had done in the past, which earned her many enemies. By her later years, she was doing it merely to harass people, as if she enjoyed it, rather than for financial gain. And it was all done for the sake of Ange, who would eventually succeed her.

Mammon (1998)

Advanced-level furniture created by Beatrice. Mammon is the piece of furniture who was the first to become Ange's friend. She remained alongside her throughout her years of training, supporting her master constantly and greedily so that she could become a full-fledged witch. A special person, even among the seven sisters.

TIPS

Mariage Sorcière

An alliance of witches formed by the Witch of Origins, Lady MARIA, and the Endless Witch, Lady Beatrice. From them, a groundbreaking magical compendium was created, and Beatrice, whose magical power has declined, was given an immense new magical power.

You could probably say that through the formation of this alliance, Beatrice gained the Endless Power in the true sense.

The first clause was that witches accept each other, and respect each other's magic. At one point, young Ange was invited into the alliance, but she was later excommunicated.

Magical Compendium

A foundation that gives birth to magic. In particular, it refers to a system by which magic can be automatically gained through shared use. You could say that writing down their own magical compendium and leaving it for future generations is one of a witch's life works.

However, magical compendiums of terrific magical power become proportionally difficult to comprehend, and shared use becomes troublesome. As a result, it becomes so that the bearer was never born.

If it is easy to learn magical power, it may also be easy to share it, but as a result, it comes to ruin as a magical compendium with no greater effect than that of a simple good luck charm and is forgotten in the end.

Leaving magical compendium for later generations while simultaneously keeping that balance is the epitome of sorcery.

Grimoire

In short, a grimoire is that upon which a magical compendium is written down and transmitted to later generations.

It is said that today, the most famous grimoire in the world has history of over 2000 years, is currently still in circulation, and continues to acquire new alliance members even now.

It is forbidden to speak the true name of that grimoire, and it is simply called "Book".

Beatrice's Titles

As a witch, Beatrice holds the two titles of "Golden" and "Endless". Because these were originally titles from separate magical compendiums, it can be said that she holds two magical compendiums.

The Endless Witch has its foundation in "Endless Creation", and is the root of her unmatched endless magical power. The Golden Witch has its foundation in "Magic Realization", and the magical power to make precious metals materialize gives the miracle of materialization to all faint forms of magic.

The two of these were polished even further through Mariage Sorciere, leading to the sublimation of "Endless Realization".

In that sense, she should now be called neither the Endless nor Golden Witch, but by a new title that is a fusion of the two.

Regarding Witches

The definition of a witch is vague, but the general theory is that at the point when one gains power surpassing humans and is able to use it at will, that person is a witch.

And the world, or possible kakera, in which that can be used freely is called their territory. Most witches cannot leave this territory, but those who can leave it freely and migrate through the kakera are called Voyagers.

In the story, Bernkastel and Lambdadelta were these.

Regarding Voyagers

Worlds of different fates and circumstances are called kakera, and witches who are able to cross the ocean of endless kakera are called Voyagers. It is also a pseudonym for high-order witches, and witches who cannot leave their territory cannot compare with their power.

However, perhaps because they do not have specific territories, their sense of worth is unstable, and it is easy for their souls to become faint. As a result, it is not rare for Voyagers to become scraps of seaweed in the ocean of kakera and disappear.

Their voyage has no endpoint, and perhaps you could say that it is a journey to escape an endpoint.

Witches of a higher order than Voyagers are called Creators.

Regarding Creators

Creators are sacred beings who can create 1 out of the sea of nothingness. They can give birth to 1 from 0, give birth to the endless, and then return it to 0 again in a flash. They are freed from all restrictions, and the Voyagers sometimes even call them gods.

In that sense, perhaps the Witch of Origins, MARIA, is a chosen girl, bound to become a Creator...

Voyagers are frightened that the ends of their own journeys mean becoming a Creator. As to why they would be frightened of advancing to become a higher-order being, none can understand except they themselves.
