James (ジェームズ) is the butler of the Furt Family.

Appearance Edit

After the Furt Family’s fall from grace, James now bears a tense expression on his wrinkled face.

Personality Edit

James is a loyal manservant as he has remained in the employ of the Furt Family even after the Emperor had revoked their nobility status.

Background Edit

According to Arche Eeb Rile Furt, James had been the butler to the Furt Family for a long time. While the young mistress Arche is away from home trying to pay off his master's debt, he attempts to prevent the Furt Family from falling further into debt. However, this is easier said than done as Arche's father still refuses to admit he is no longer a noble, believing that he still needs to keep up appearances. Despite the aged old butler's reminders of the family's financial situation, his master has accumulated a debt of 300 gold coins.

Chronology Edit

The Invaders of the the Large Tomb Arc Edit

Main article: The Invaders of the the Large Tomb Arc

James greets Arche, when she returns and apologizes for his inability to steer her father from taking out excessive loans. He is somewhat relieved after being shown Arche's meager monetary commission, which he plans to use to alleviate the debt.[1]

Abilities and Powers Edit

In addition to having the skills of a butler, it seems James also possesses the mindset of an accountant, believing he could pay off the loans and receive his salary based on the content of Arche's purse.[2]

Relationships Edit

Sir Furt Edit

A loyal servant of the old master, James tried to remind him of the family's financial debt but was unsuccessful as the patriarch valued the opinion of his noble peers.

James cares deeply about the well being of his mistress, even aiding the girl in her plans to leave the Furt Family once the debt was cleared.

Trivia Edit

Quotes Edit

  • (To Arche as she gave him the money): "Salary, as well as the interest for the merchants...I think I should be able to solve the rest. Ojou-sama."
