- v2c28 - Character Introduction: Differences between reality and the original story
Author’s note: As there has been a lot of requests for this, I present you with the characters’ introduction. I’ve written down the differences between their actions in the original work versus in reality, and also a few previously unknown tidbits. If a name or the appearance of a character isn’t written down, then it’s not established yet. The latter half has a lot of characters who don’t appear much, so please just look at the entries of the characters you are interested in.
The Rosenberg Marquis household Associates
She has long platinum-blonde hair and amethyst eyes. On one hand, due to her Magical Overcharge illness, her magical powers are outstanding. On the other, it is also the reason she finds it difficult to control her emotions. In the original work, her Magical Overcharge illness wasn’t mentioned and it became a hidden detail in the story.
Although she has siblings, they don’t appear in the original work. She was born in the same year as Cyril, but her birthday is a little later than his. She is the villainous daughter in Espressivo of Light and Darkness. Even though her wicked1 facial features are suitable for her role as the villainess, the young girl raised by Cyril always has a gentle smile on her face.
In the original work, her beloved prince gets stolen by the heroine and Sophia falls into darkness. In reality, Cyril has taught her how to control her emotions, but the chance of her falling into darkness is not impossible. The reason why she fell into ruin in the original story was also that she didn’t possess this knowledge.
In reality, the girl that was raised by Cyril has enough knowledge to get what she wants. If this girl were to fall into darkness, she would most likely achieve whatever she’d set her sight on, using all means possible.
He has brown hair, so dark it almost seems black, and emerald eyes. He was born the same year as Lady Sophia, but his birthday comes a little earlier than hers. Although he’s a child of the prominent family that has served the Rosenberg marquis household for generations, in the original work, Cyril was a mere mediocre butler. He did as he was told by his Lady, assisting her in her evil deeds and falling into ruin.
In reality, Cyril is a transmigrator who possesses a lot of useful skills, including knowledge about the original work and magic.
In his previous world, he had many talents; in other words, he was a jack of all trades. However, as all this knowledge and skills got transferred to his reborn self, and since early childhood, he has worked on refining all of them, he has already surpassed the title of ‘Jack of All Trades’.
He has brown hair and blue eyes. He’s the current head of the Rosenberg marquis household and is fairly young. He understood that Sophia was mediocre and simply loved her as his daughter.
In the original work, he was too late to notice the evil deeds of a maid and wasn’t able to prevent his daughter from getting emotionally scarred. Feeling indebted to her because of this, he wasn’t able to strongly admonish her for her selfish actions and in the end, he drove her into ruin.
In reality, from early on, he has noticed the abnormal way his daughter was growing up as a person, the very daughter who was supposed to be a mediocre daughter of a marquis. He had noticed Cyril’s, the one who was capable of teaching her to become like this, abnormality as well. He was quite troubled over these things.
Lately, although he is a world-wise man, he is being manipulated by his beloved daughter, who has grown up beyond his expectations.
He is Grave’s exclusive butler and Cyril’s father.
At the time when he gave his six year-old son – who wished to become an exclusive butler – a test, Cedric realized that his son possessed knowledge no one else had.
He’s a very capable butler, and his master Grave is his highest priority. In the original work, he turned his back on the selfish young Lady and his son, who wasn’t able to stop her from becoming that way, and made sure that the Rosenberg marquis household wouldn’t be held responsible.
In reality, he knows about the deal between Sophia and Grave, and is filled with indescribable, complicated feelings both as a butler and as a father.
She is the fairly young marchioness of the Rosenberg family. She is Sophia’s mother, but she doesn’t have a name yet. She wasn’t separated from Sophia by death or anything of the sort, she simply keeps moving from place to place together with her busy husband. Now and then, the two come back home.
Being Sophia’s mother, it is likely that she is a captivating beauty.
Although she didn’t particularly appear in the original work, she led a busy life just like Grave. In reality, she loves her daughter very much, and will send a present to Sophia on her birthdays without fail.
By the way, she also has sons2, but they don’t appear in the story either.
He has red hair and green eyes. He’s one year younger than Sophia. Taking his younger sister, who was sold to the Dark guild, with him, he ran away from the slums. Then, chancing upon a destined yet unexpected meeting, he became a servant of the Rosenberg marquis household.
At first, he worked for Sophia in order to protect his younger sister, but lately he’s been competing with the latter, trying to see who proved to be more helpful to Sophia and Cyril.
Although in reality, he spends his days happily, in the original work, Sophia held animosity towards commoners and never offered Roy nor Emma a helping hand.
She has red hair and yellow eyes. She is two years younger than Sophia. When she got sold to the Dark guild and was about to be forced to work for them, she was dragged away by her older brother. She is grateful to him for taking her away, and to Sophia and Cyril as well from the bottom of her heart.
In reality, she lives her days in happiness, but in the original work, although she sought out Sophia’s help, she was forsaken, and began to work night time jobs arranged by the Dark guild.
As someone who gathers various information in her line of work, she seizes proof of the evil deeds of the young Lady who had abandoned her before…
She has brown hair and brown eyes.
She’s not even ten years older than Sophia. Currently, she’s about twenty years old.
In the web novel, she doesn’t really appear much, but she plays an active role in the to-be-published book. She is the daughter of a certain merchant household and her mother is the daughter of a low-ranked noble. She has a much younger brother. She’s actually quite a wise-wordly girl and after being discovered by Sophia and Cyril, became a maid.
She became Roy and Emma’s tutor, so she is influential in that aspect as well.
In reality, she is Lady Sophia’s outstanding maid, however, in the original work, she took Sophia’s side when Sophia was getting bullied by a maid and was fired.
Usually, she behaves more like an older sister…
She doesn’t have a name in the web novel, but she’s the maid who was exposed by Cyril for embezzlement and fell into slavery. Originally, she was Rouché’s superior; she did as she pleased and was executed after emotionally scarring Lady Sophia. Since in reality she ended up falling into slavery, it could be said that in a sense, she has been saved by Cyril.
Of course, no one, including Cyril, knows about that.
Although she was originally born into a noble household, because she wasn’t a successor, she became a maid. She was jealous of Sophia because although both had noble blood in their veins, unlike Kathy, Sophia was promised a future.
The Lindberg Viscount household Associates
She has black hair and black eyes with a bluish tint.
She is the same age as Sophia.
In the original work, she is the heroine and as she is a character meant to be controlled by the player, the emphasis was put onto impressions such as her plain appearance. However, she possesses a charm suitable for a traditional heroine.
In the original work, she is attracted to the prince who had saved her, but in reality she is completely taken with Cyril who had saved her splendidly. Her later actions are influenced by the difference in the strength of these feelings.
This is the reason why in reality, she entered the academy at the middle school level and her actions are much bolder than in the original work.
She has dark blonde hair and golden eyes.
She’s a little bit older than Rouché, and she’s at the age where she dislikes being asked how old she is.
She’s Alicia’s maid and wishes for her master’s happiness more than anyone else. In the original work, she is a good advisor to Alicia who keeps hitting a lot of walls, and she guides Alicia the same way in reality as well.
Lately, while Melissa supports Alicia who has become engrossed with Cyril, the difference of the two’s social status, as well as the existence of such a strong rival that the issues of their social statuses being so different becomes the least of her problems, worries her enough to make her stomach hurt.
One cause of her stomachaches is also her vague reports to Viscount Lindberg, in which she claims that “Young Lady Alicia’s ‘interests’ are the same as those of a marquis’ daughter.”
Ephenear Royal Family Associates
He has blond hair and blue eyes. He’s the second Prince of the Ephenear Kingdom, and the second temporary successor to the throne. This succession order was decided based on his birth as the second son, therefore, it has only been decided as a temporary order of succession. It is thus possible that it will change in the future.
Because of this, the people he is surrounded by are separated by who they support as the future king. Alforth had lost some points when the Elitist faction incident took place, however, he recovered them back thanks to his involvement with handing over the rights to the crêpes.
However, some are of the opinion that rather than saying he has got the support of the Rosenberg marquis household, he had been incorporated into Sophia’s faction, so it can be hardly said that he got hold of a strongly influential power.
In the original work, he harbors fledgling love for the heroine and he perseveres in his efforts, wishing to someday meet the girl whose name he doesn’t know again, growing up into a prince suitable to be the main route’s capture target.
However, in reality, he fell in love with Sophia at first sight and became unable to concentrate on anything else, asking the people around him what he should do to get closer to the marquis’ daughter, which the Elitist faction took advantage of.
He has blond hair and he’s fairly young.
He’s the king of Ephenear Kingdom. He watches over his sons growing up, their education based on the principle of ‘Make mistakes and learn from them’.
Furthermore, in reality, this principle of ‘Make mistakes and learn from them’ has been heavily influenced by Tristan. The fact that the second prince’s engagement hasn’t been decided yet, unlike in the original story, is also due to this principle influencing the decision of choosing a partner for the prince.
At present time, he hasn’t decided if the one who will take the throne will be the first or the second prince.
She has pink gold hair and is fairly young.
She’s the Queen of Ephenear Kingdom.
She is shown to be strong-willed and has a free and wild side to her. Lately, she seems to be maneuvering behind the scenes, concluding, ‘If I can’t get my son a wife, I should just make a son-in-law my son.’
Since her children are all boys, she has always wanted a cute daughter. Because of this, in reality, she loves Sophia the moment she sees her and supports Alicia’s and Alforth’s marriage in the original work.
Folcenia Ephenear 3
She has pink gold hair and blue eyes.
She is two years older than Sophia. She’s the daughter of the crown prince’s younger brother.
She didn’t take center stage because she suffered from Magical Overcharge illness. Although her fate in the original work was to die unnoticed from this sickness, she was brought to the forefront by Tristan.
Therefore, as she died without her talents getting to develop, she didn’t make an appearance in the original work. Both of these factors were the reason for it, although Cyril thought that it was either one or the other.
She knows of Tristan’s situation, and she’s studying under the two personalities that are inside Tristan.
The reason why she was all alone in the Student Council meeting room was because she didn’t want to make anyone sad by getting close to her.
She changes her principles and allows Miss Sophia to join the Student Council because she sees Sophia and Cyril enjoying playing a duet together, and she wishes to be a part of something like that as well.
He has brown hair and blue eyes.
He’s a young boy of simple looks, and is the same age as Sophia.
He doesn’t appear in the original work. In reality, he was trained by Tristan and is working for Folcenia.
He was investigating Cyril’s character on Tristan’s orders. However, he didn’t know about their connection from the previous world and thought that he was doing an ordinary background check on him.
She has chestnut brown hair and violet eyes.
She is a young girl of plain looks and is the same age as Sophia.
She’s Tristan’s pupil and works for Folcenia.
She doesn’t appear in the original work. There are times when she takes care of Luke and is quite a responsible person. Using Luke’s carelessness as a cover, she assumed the role of investigating Cyril.
However, the fact that she often chides Luke for his carelessness and completely blows her cover, makes Cyril lower his guard, which then creates a chance for them.
He has brown hair and black eyes.
Although he’s in his mid-thirties, he looks young. He’s a legendary butler working for the king’s younger brother, and in the original work, he was unconsciously pushy.
In reality, he has the memories of Cyril’s older sister of the previous world. However, the two personalities didn’t merge together, so he has a body with two separate personas inside.
Thanks to Cyril’s older sister’s knowledge, he achieves a lot more results than in the original work. Cyril doesn’t know about this, but this is the reason why Tristan’s status is higher than in the original work.
Also, thanks to this knowledge, he knew about Fol and protected her. Moreover, since the engagement between Sophia and the Second Prince didn’t happen, he became curious about Sophia and that’s when he found out about Cyril.
He then discerned that Sophia suffers from Magical Overcharge illness during the incident in the courtyard. From there, he realized that there was a possibility Cyril was dealing with Sophia’s illness.
This is the reason why he was probing Cyril’s magical knowledge by using classwork as a front.
Gillcliff and Sarjes
They are the same age as Sophia.
They took advantage of the second prince behaving recklessly because of love and became his followers. Since in the original work there wasn’t much opportunity to manipulate the second prince, they didn’t really do anything that would stand out.
They are the adopted sons of the Ares count household, and they are nothing but tools meant to drag the second prince down. Unaware of this, they flaunted their status and it could be said that falling into ruin was their just desserts.
She has hair the color of cherry blossoms and blue eyes.
She is the daughter of Viscount Arken and is the same age as Sophia.
She’s a young Lady who affiliated herself with Sophia’s faction from the very beginning and was also invited to Count Reed’s party.
She has red hair and green eyes.
She is the daughter of Count Titania and is the same age as Sophia.
She’s a young Lady who has been affiliated with Sophia’s faction since the start.
She has blonde hair, green eyes, and a mole under her left eye.
She is the daughter of Count Ford and is the same age as Sophia. She worries over the tiny amount of plumpness she has. Because of this, she became anemic and collapsed during the entrance exams, where she was saved by Cyril.
She entered Sophia’s faction in their second semester.
He has brown hair and chestnut brown eyes.
His facial features have a calculating look to them and he is of slender build.
He’s the heir to the LaCour company and is the same age as Sophia.
He’s yet to overcome the trauma of his beloved little sister getting killed by violent nobles and thus hates nobles who claim to be part of the Elitist faction. In the original work, he was able to overcome it by the resolution of the incident as well as the passage of time, but in reality, he’s still very wary of them.
He has dark brown hair and black eyes.
He’s Libert’s right-hand man and is in charge of gathering information.
Although he found out that Sophia wasn’t an Elitist pretty quickly, he carried out a lot of roundabout actions, considering Libert’s feelings.
He gathered proof of Count Ares’ evil deeds towards Libert’s younger sister.
In the original work, he exposed Count Ares’ crimes himself, but in reality, it was Sophia. One could say that she stole his achievement, but since she involved the king, Count Ares received punishment that was much more severe than in the original story.
It is precisely because Nikola understood that Libert and he wouldn’t be able to chase Count Ares into destruction, that he and Libert’s family are very grateful to Sophia and Cyril.
The daughter of the owner of a western clothes’ tailor shop, situated in the royal city of Ephenear.
She is fairly close with Libert. She might perhaps become a rival character of the heroine in Libert’s route, but right now, she isn’t established as such.
He has red hair and eyes tinged with blue.
He’s a young boy striving to become a butler, and he’s the same age as Sophia.
His father passed away and he has a younger brother and sister who is very young. His father died together with the master he was working for. Raymond behaved carelessly in many ways because he’s responsible for the future of his family, left without any means of sustenance, but he’s a good person at heart.
In the original work, Raymond led a completely different life, due to Sophia hating commoners.
Lionel and Mercia
The father, Lionel, died in an accident together with his master.
Count Reed’s no good son
He’s Count Reed’s eldest son and he’s a profligate person.
Count Reed’s second son
Apparently he fell in love with Sophia at first sight and is doing his best to pursue her.
He’s a self-defence teacher in his forties who used to be a knight. He worked for a certain young Lady and was responsible for her safety. He saved her when she carelessly got involved into a fight and found herself in trouble. The injuries he sustained at that time were the reason for his retirement.
He’s teaching self-defense in order to prevent the same tragedy from happening again.
He’s the leader of the Dark guild.
He used to be a noble, but he was falsely accused of a crime by a higher-ranked noble and his name was erased from the nobility.
Therefore, he’s a chivalrous thief that hates people who flaunt their authority and power.
In the original work, he took action in order to force Sophia, who was an oppressive noble, to fall into ruin. In reality, he took an interest in Cyril and his master, and cooperates with them.
He’s Nameless’ right-hand man as well as his double.
Even the author doesn’t know what happened in her past or what her connections are.
She’s about twenty years old. She’s the star actress of a well-known theatre group and a very captivating young woman. Apparently, she’s mature enough to make Sophia wonder: “How many years will it take before I am grown up?”
She’s in charge of the sex appeal in the Villainous Daughter’s Butler, something that’s very rare in the novel.
She was scouted by Cyril, and was hired to work as something like a spy.
Thank you so much for reading! This chapter is a bit different, but the next chapter is all about Sophia being awesome and kicking butt! Lol
- original uses a term closer to ‘strict, mean’, so it’s a bit of a softer wicked face.
- original doesn’t specify if she has a single son or more sons, though Sophia’s entry implies she has more than one sibling.
- I admit to being a dumbass and previously thinking the シーニア in フォルシーニア was part of her title, since it reads as ‘senior’. But it was just her full name…! I will try to find all the instances where I mistranslated it and correct it. I’m so sorry ;;;;
- ジ- ji/gi; same sound as the first syllable of the japanese word for second son 次男 – ‘jinan’
- サ – sa; same sound as the first syllable of the japanese word for third son 三男 – ‘sannan’
