"How surprising. Are you at your wits' end because you are all weaklings? This is truly a country of idiots. All the children that I sired turned out to be nothing but useless."
- Unnamed Elf King to his subject.

Elf King is the current king of the Elf Country.


Nothing is known about the Elf King's appearance except that he has heterochromia.


The Elf King has a haughty and somewhat narcissistic personality. He possesses an enormous ego and respects none except for himself. He holds no loyalties to his nation or his people, indulging himself in excess of lust and luxury even in the face of annihilation. His arrogance lead to delusion, being seemingly out of touch with reality. The welfare of the nation is of little concern to him, focusing his time impregnating elven women to produce children.

By doing so, his main objective is to create an army of his own bloodline so he might someday rule the world in the near future. However, none of his children inherited even a fraction of his power, causing him to see only disappointment in them. Because of this, he has shown willing to abandon them and his entire nation. Even with the one child that inherited his power, he views her as little more than his property.


In the past, the Elf King tricked a woman known as the "trump card" of the Theocracy, effectively capturing and taking her prisoner. The Elf King would later chain her up and rape her, and she ended up pregnant with his child. Unfortunately for him, the Black Scripture came to her rescue before she could give birth. This incident precipitated the decades long war between the Slane Theocracy and the Elf Country.

The Elf King is approached by a former mistress about the dire situation their country faces at the hands of the encroaching forces of the Slane Theocracy. Despite her pleas, the Elf King ignores her, refusing to lift a hand to save what he considers a nation of weaklings. After dismissing her from his presence, he muses to himself that the Elf Country is over. Thinking back, he remembers the child sired from a woman in the Theocracy. He decided, once the Theocracy destroys his nation, he will go to its capital and reclaim his child.[1]
