- The Lord - Also referred to as the princess. Really hates Rai- perhaps due to her (father's?) predecessor's outright favoring of him. The whole power turn-over, and how she kept bringing up how Gejutel chose not to take a sleepy-time as well makes me wonder, doth the lady protest to much? Did she have anything to do with it? Power turn-over can take a lot of time with immortals. You especially might want to move things along if your position as heir seems in danger. Maybe you also might want to 'clean house' taking the powers loyal to the old regime out, as well? Did the princess have anything to do with the reasons Rai took his nap, and Franky decided to search without help?
- The Prior Lord - Did he just not want the 'princess' to inherit? He certainly seemed to jump through a lot of hoops to make sure she didn't have the Lord's Soul Weapon. (Or does she? Maybe a weakened one-part-of-one-soul weapon, à la Rael?) He wanted Rai to be the Lord. He opened Rai's shrine (while Rai was asleep) a thing that is implied to be nigh impossible for non-family, just so he could put a sword that Rai can't use anyway inside? Was he so confident that he could overcome the 'not descendant' thing? And if so, did he?
- Rai - OR, alternatively, IS Rai a 'blood' relative (pun fully intended) to the Lord's family? Regis mentioned that Rai's blood-controlling-ability-thingie (which I'm not looking up the name of, at the moment) was something he believed confined to the Lord's bloodline. And it would explain why the Lord (the princess) feels threatened by him, and the Lord (eternally sleeping) felt that Rai could take the sword and the throne. (Anyone else get King Arthur vibes? Especially when I saw the soul weapon that way, apparently point down in some material/monument. 'Whoso Pulleth Out This Sword of this Stone
and Anvil, is Rightwise King Born of EnglandLukedonia.')
- Frankenstein - Is not a vampire. No red eyes, as seen in EVERY vampire that has had any
screenpanel time. Is, perhaps, a human? It would fit in well with his name, although, it would seem he, unlike Mary Shelley's original, is his own Monster. Is a demon? Why? Other than his pride, sadism, seeming immortality, 'black' power, and lack of regard for human life, I mostly get that from this (about 4/5ths of the way down the page), where his power appears to manifest as huge stylized wings. Of course, that could just be the Rule of Cool, too.
TL;DR summation: Noblesse is nifty, mmkay?
