Lakyus Alvein Dale Aindra (ラキュース・アルベイン・デイル・アインドラ) is an Adamantite-Ranked Adventurer and the leader of Blue Roses. She is also the niece of fellow Adamantite-Ranked Adventurer Azuth Aindra and a former noblewoman of the now fallen Re-Estize Kingdom.
Lakyus is described as a young woman with long blonde hair, green eyes, and pink lips that show a healthy gleam. Her beauty fell short of Renner but overflowed with a different charm.
Lakyus is a very bright person who enjoys adventuring with her friends. She acts weird sometimes, like wearing meaningless rings or fighting against her dark personality, making her other team members worry about her actually becoming evil.
Lakyus was also shown to have a very kind-hearted, stubborn and loyal personality as well, as seen during the last stages of Fall of the Re-Estize Kingdom. Instead of accepting her uncle's offer to escape to the Argland Council State, accepting the offer of the Black Scripture to migrate to the Slane Theocracy or even run away herself outside the kingdom for her safety, Lakyus stubbornly chose to stay behind in the Re-Estize Kingdom and fight until her last breath to defend her country. Despite the incredibly low chances of she and her group actually winning or surviving the war with the Sorcerer Kingdom, she show a great deal of personal loyalty to her nation and a strong sense of patriotic justice for her countrymen. She also express the desire to avenge the people of her country who were unjustly slaughtered by the Sorcerer Kingdom. She felt a great sense of guilt after knowing and seeing that her own countrymen are being sent to die against the Sorcerer King.
Due to this immense stubbornness, her teammates, despite not agreeing with Lakyus's desire to defend the Kingdom, knew full well it was impossible to talk her into escaping and running away with them, and were ultimately forced to rely on a more violent and cunning method to save her life and escape by bringing her with them.
When Lakyus was a young girl, she decided to become an adventurer after hearing the adventurous stories of Red Drop. Lakyus ran away from home to have an adventure of her own, while she was still inexperienced; her parents had apparently showed absolution to their daughter for this action.
At some point in her lifetime, she was saved by Gagaran and the two became partners. She was also a former target for assassination by Tia and Tina, who failed during their attempt to kill her. Rather than killing the two assassins, she managed to convince them to join Blue Roses as her companions.

When Ninya remarks the fact that there are more famous people than him, Peter Mauk inquires him if it was the leader of Blue Roses he happens to be referring to. Although Ninya considers Lakyus to be famous, the former states that it was not the female adventurer he was talking about, but Nfirea Bareare, an infamous talent holder of E-Rantel.
During a campfire between Nfirea, Swords of Darkness and Darkness, the former remarks that someone else is already in possession of one of the Black Knight's four swords. According to Nfirea, the person who owns that sword is the leader of the adventuring party, Blue Roses.
The Men in the Kingdom Arc
While her adventurer group was raiding one of the villages controlled by Eight Fingers, it was said that Lakyus will be happy if she can get even a small piece of information on the criminal organization. It was later revealed that Princess Renner was the client responsible for requesting Lakyus and her party to be dispatched in investigating the location.
Lakyus is first seen speaking with Renner in her room about the latter's plan of harvesting different crops on rotation. She states the flaws of her friend's plan while Renner attempt to suggest some other possible alternatives to modifying the plan but not without Lakyus herself, pointing out the setbacks in carrying it out. Along the way, Lakyus brought her findings she had acquired from the village her group raided a while back and discussed about it. She used it to help with the main topic of their discussion which was about the Eight Fingers Organization. Lakyus lets her friend Renner decipher the hidden messages through the finding. Near the end of their discussion, she would ask Climb for assistance in delivering Gagaran and Evileye a message.
Once Climb got that task done, they will begin talking about Lakyus's troubles at some point in their conversation. Gagaran noted how Lakyus was grabbing her right hand pretty hard and said something about how only a woman of faith like her can suppress the power of the demonic sword. It leads them to believe that the likelihood of there possibly being a dark Lakyus who was born from their adventurer leader's dark consciousness may be true too. Ever since she got her hands on the demonic sword, her friend noted that she started wearing those pointless armor rings on all five of her fingers for unknown reasons. They are preparing to help Lakyus at any cost including asking help from their rival group Red Drop, assuming she was to lose control of her dark side.
When meeting up with Renner alongside all the members of Blue Roses, the latter informed her group that there has been a change in plan of silently destroying a Eight Finger facility one at a time. Instead, she and her companions are required to take all of the Eight Finger facilities down in one fell swoop. Lakyus was asked by Renner that each member of Blue Rose are needed to raid one place before then moving on to the next untouched location among the three. Later, Lakyus had a meeting to address with the leaders of every group taking part in the operation. Lakyus explained the plan for attacking the Eight Finger’s eight buildings.
When Jaldabaoth appear in the royal capital city of Re-Estize, she had to participate in a meeting to combat the new threat. She reminds the adventurers participating in their operation that the one paying to gather them all together is not the royal family, but Princess Renner herself. She insists that Princess Renner is going out of her way to use her own private finances for their sake while the one who brought adventurers of Darkness was Marquis Raeven. She voiced her displeasure alongside the adventurers about the nobles and royals not coming to their aid, but considered not all of them are bad people.
During the disturbance, she is seen leading an expeditionary group against Jaldabaoth to prevent his demons from spreading deeper into the royal capital, Re-Estize. At the same time, she gave words of encouragement to the adventurers who were losing faith in the battle to not lose hope and that strong individuals on their side exists like Momon and Evileye to combat the demons. In the midst of combat, Lakyus successfully killed off several Hellhounds. Alongside Tina, Lakyus stood at the head of the assault team that was formed of mithril and orichalcum ranked adventurers. She continues to maintain her team's morale while activating her group support magic to support them. With the defensive line nearly broken through, she was saved by Gazef Stronoff and others including her two revived companions, Gagaran and Tia who arrived to aid them in repelling the demons once and for all. Among the demons she had the most trouble defeating, it was said to have been none other than the Scale Demon. They fought to get to where Momon was at once the latter force Jaldabaoth to make a retreat.
After the war came to an end, the only few who had come to see the adventurer group, Darkness off were just Marquis Raeven and members of Blue Roses like Lakyus. Lakyus bid her farewell with Momon of Darkness, declaring that she is looking forward to one day working with him again and will do her best to catch up with his group during the meantime in preparation for that moment to come.

- Main article: The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc
Lakyus and her adventurer group, Blue Roses took part in the meeting with the Roble Holy Kingdom's envoys concerning Jaldabaoth and Momon. She, as the leader of Blue Roses, was the first member to greet the envoys. She lets Evileye speak on their behalf, explaining in details everything they know about Jaldabaoth, the one who was responsible for the Demonic Disturbance at the Re-Estize capital city. When it was Lakyus's turn to speak, she explained to the envoys about the Scale Demon, describing its abilities and how they fought it. Lakyus’s tale ended with Brain Unglaus, a man on Gazef Stronoff’s level slaying that demon after it escape from their death match with it. She tells the envoys that their group will pay a sum equal to the fees they’d receive for a similar request by the latter as part of their deal in exchanging key information surrounding the topic of Jaldabaoth. She reminded the envoys that they cannot fulfill all kinds of payments like joining and supporting the Holy Kingdom's war against Jaldabaoth. She reasons that her group have chosen to participate in this meeting was so that they can gather intelligence from them. Because neither Lakyus herself and and the companions she is with don't want to die, she told them that entering the battlefield to fight Jaldabaoth again would be counter to their group's purposes. At the very least, the highest form of payment Lakyus was willing to give the envoys is arranging a meeting with powerful nobles. In the end, she along with her fellow adventurers refuse the envoys' request of giving them military aid in the war against Jaldabaoth.
The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc
- Main article: The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc
When Blue Roses was invited to a meeting location by someone unbeknownst to them, Lakyus advised everyone to stay behind while she be the only one to attend the meeting with her uncle Azuth of Red Drop. When her companions state the reason for not having them join her was because of a family reunion between the two of them in private, Lakyus went along with their explanation to mask her true concern of why. She reasons that it was because her uncle did not bother in anyways to look for her after he came to the Re-Estize capital. Nonetheless, this did not stop everyone from the group to walk with her near the meeting room after their conversation came to an end. Upon opening the door to the designated room, she finds her uncle being inappropriately surrounded by two women and immediately locks the door shut much to her teammates' surprise. Realizing that there is no way out of this situation, she informs her companions that her uncle is an odd individual before letting them in alongside her.
Meeting her uncle, she demanded him to get dressed in an appropriate manner quickly much to her embarrassment in front of her teammates. Once Evileye uses her magic to drive the two women out of the room, Lakyus was able to speak with her uncle about the client who arranged their secret meeting and if they are related to him. Despite not finding any real answer to her questions, she was then asked by him what her plan was from here on out much to her confusion. When suggested by her uncle to leave the Re-Estize Kingdom using the escape path he planned out, she refused to leave and tells him that she would rather stay behind and fight. She suggested her uncle to fight side by side as allies against the enemy which the latter rejected due to already knowing about the rumors concerning the Sorcerer King. This conversation persisted until they were greeted by Black Scripture members arriving at the scene which caused she and the rest of her companions to become vigilant of their presence.
After the 5th Seat of the Black Scripture tries to convince them to join, she was the first to adamantly refuse their offer before letting the rest of her fellow adventurers speak up about the offer. Shortly after, all the other members of Blue Roses including Gagaran agreed with the same decision as her and choose not to join despite the 5th Seat's attempt to convince them. When the four members of the Black Scripture finally left the room and are out of sight, she scolded her uncle for trying to provoke them while he was the weakest of them all present during that meeting. She then asked him what his plans were since the meeting has ended. Upon hearing his plans and wanting her to leave the nation, Lakyus told her uncle that she had no intention of abandoning Re-Estize to run away. After bidding farewell and parting ways with her uncle, she and her group still had some things to prepare for and left the inn.
When the capital Re-Estize is already surrounded by the Sorcerer Kingdom's forces, Renner, she and the rest of the members from Blue Roses made am impromptu visit with Renner, Climb, and Brain in the palace. Realizing that there is not much time left, she tries to refrain Renner from giving them tea until Evileye, representing the rest of the Blue Roses' members told their leader they all agreed to having one. Much to her shock, she found their behaviors strange as Tia look to prepare a cup of tea for her to drink. Upon drinking the tea, Lakyus realizes what she had drank was drugged and starts to succumb to its effect.
Soon after, Lakyus was met with repeated attacks from Gagaran and Tia much to her pain, sadness, and confusion while not understanding why they were attacking her. Lakyus was left in a vulnerable, weaken state to the point that she had fallen under the control of Evileye's spell [Charm Person] without having her combat-related gear to protect herself. This in turn, forces Lakyus to obey every order Evileye ask of her. While being mind-controlled, she was instructed by Evileye to take out the needles injected by Tia and heal her wounds first. After Tina returns to the room, she obediently accepts the Blue Roses' escape plan. Following Evileye's order, she was teleported to the inn to retrieve her equipment and then left the Royal Capital with them.
Abilities and Powers
Lakyus became one of the strongest adventurers in the Re-Estize Kingdom at the age of 19 for her heroic-level abilities. She is also one of the few users of revival magic. Additionally, she could used what is known as group support magic to aid her teammates in battle. As well as being able to cast a silent healing spell onto herself without speaking a word.
- Cloak of Rat Speed: A ragged cloth that when worn, increases speed and agility of the user.
- Kilineiram the Demonic Sword: One of the four Swords of Darkness used by the Black Knight of the Thirteen Heroes.
- Floating Swords: The Floating Swords hovering at Lakyus's shoulders are able to rise up and be shot out at her command if she wishes.
- Virgin Snow: A magic armor set that can only be worn by pure maidens.
- Dark Blade Mega Impact: An attack that releases Dark Energy collected within the Sword of Darkness, Kirineiram the Demonic Sword.
- Raise Dead: It is a 5th tier resurrection spell which revives the dead person back to life with some loss of vitality and five levels; in New World standards, the deceased target must be at least the level of an Iron-Ranked adventurer or the corpse would be reduced to ashes. Moreover, this spell will have a hard time working without a corpse, or if it's badly damaged.
Lakyus is shown to have a close familial bond with her teammates in Blue Roses and is shown to trust and care for each of them greatly. Lakyus herself is stated to be more than content to simply spend her time adventuring together with them and treasures all of her memories made with them.
Her teammates in turn are shown to fully reciprocate her feelings with their own unconditional trust and loyalty, as seen where all of them would follow Lakyus's orders and decisions unconditionally and have shown to have faith in her judgment.
Later their loyalty and care for her welfare is full seen during their scheme to forcibly save her during the Fall of the Re-Estize Kingdom, where despite Lakyus making up her mind to stay and protect her home nation, her teammates had already deemed that saving her life was far superior to saving a failing/corrupt Kingdom and began scheming to save her against her will. As seen perfectly where they were willing to use brute force to forcibly weaken her enough to be susceptible to Mind Control magic to have her escape with them.
Gagaran saved Lakyus when she run away from home trying to be an adventurer. This confrontation between the two led Gagaran to become one of the initial members for the formation of Blue Roses. As fellow adamantite adventurers of Blue Roses, they have a close relationship with each other.
Evileye is the strongest member of Blue Roses and the last one to join it. As fellow adamantite adventurers of Blue Rose, they have a close relationship with each other. Evileye is a bit jealous of Lakyus, because Momon showed interest in her revival magic.
On the other hand, Lakyus tends to scold Evileye at times for her harsh attitude she acted towards Brain. While the other, is due to Lakyus calling her out as naive when she questions how the nobles will react negatively to Momon's reward from the King. The same remains true of how she reprimanded Evileye for acting out immaturely during a discussion with the Holy Kingdom's envoy.
As fellow adamantite adventurers of Blue Roses, they have a close relationship with each other.
Originally both Tina and Tia were hired assassin sent to kill Lakyus and their original interactions consisted of the twins constantly and discreetly stalking and observing her in secret to analyze her for her weaknesses to make their attempts on her life easier. However, Lakyus instead managed to convince the two to become her companions as Adventurers after the two realized that the lifestyle suited them better. Eventually becoming friends with her and the twins seemingly developing the habit of teasing Lakyus by calling her "evil boss" and usually deferred to Lakyus's decisions on matters regarding their assignments and followed her orders faithfully during missions.
Eventually their personal care for Lakyus is fully seen during their scheme to escape the Royal Capital during the Fall of the Re-Estize Kingdom, where the two of them along with Evileye and Gagaran agreed to save Lakyus's life against her will and saving themselves took precedence over defending the corrupt nation.
Not much is known about the former leader's relationship with Lakyus, however the fact that she left Blue Roses in her charge as it's new leader, shows she has enough confidence and respect that would let her take the new position.
Renner is considered to be one of her friends besides the members of Blue Roses. Lakyus would usually accept some personal missions requested by her Highness without mediation from the Adventurer's Guild. While so, she can understand the logical reasoning behind Renner's suggestions and sometimes points out problems with them. As Lakyus values her as a friend, Renner thinks otherwise as this feeling is not reciprocated.
Lakyus treats Momon with respect and companionship as fellow adamantite adventurers. She and her group were willing to cooperate with his adventurer group, Darkness, so they could work together on putting a stop to Jaldabaoth's plan. Yet at the same time, however, Lakyus prayed with all her heart that Momon would defeat Jaldabaoth, and get rid of the demons in the Royal Capital. In a way, it shows how far her degree of faith and trust goes when depending on Momon and his abilities against the powerful demon. After the incident was finally clear, she hopes to work with Momon and his group again someday, stating to their nation's hero that her group will do their best on catching up to them.
In the past, Lakyus and Blue Roses had once stopped Nigun and the Sunlight Scripture from eradicating a demi-human village. At that time, she managed to damage Nigun's face with a scar which he kept around as a reminder of his defeat against her. Nigun hated that both Blue Roses and Gazef Stronoff were part of the Kingdom and that they served a different god. She was the type of person he loathed the most for being merciful and foolish.
Azuth was the reason why Lakyus had become an adventurer and thus she respects him very much. However when she met him he appeared normal, but over time she began to see him as something of a good but corny heroic man. Though she is not blind to his faults, such as his womanizing habits, she is willing to ignore these eccentricities.
- Lakyus seems to suffer from eighth grader syndrome and has "chuunibyou" fantasies about being possessed by her sword and fighting against her alternative personality.
- Lakyus is the only one in the Re-Estize Kingdom who can use revival magic, though this ability is only reserved for Blue Rose members and those that can afford its expensive service.
- During her fight with the Hellhound, Lakyus seems to recite prayers to the Water God which implies that she may worship it.
- (To Renner): "Ah, those idi...people who left their honor in their mother's womb just for you."
- (To Princess Renner): "Isn't it obvious? It's true that Climb is special, but only because he's 'yours'."
- (To Climb about Tina): "It's nothing. She's just talking to herself. Don't worry about it, Climb. No, really, don't worry about it. I'm serious."
- (To Herself): "Damn it. Trash that only thinks about their lust can all die!"
- (About Princess Renner): "What am I thinking? Why am I doubting my good friend? Besides, hasn't everything that's happened up till now proven that she's not a petty little schemer? If I can't even trust someone like her, with the title of "Golden", who crusades for justice, then who can I trust?"
- (To herself about Kilineiram): "Only a woman who serves the Gods like myself can hold back its full power..."
- (To herself about Kilineiram): "I, the source of the darkness will take over your body once you let your guard down and release the demon sword's power."
- (To Momon about Evileye): "That was a surprisingly mature response. Unlike my companion...not only does she lack height but she is deficient in adaptability too."
- (To herself): "If I can't figure it out, there's no point wasting energy on it. Who was it who said that I should be using my head for better things... Evileye, or Uncle?"
- (To Momon): "We should be saying that, Momon-san. After seeing Momon-san's power, we are almost ashamed to call ourselves adamantite-ranked adventurers like yourself, but we will do our best to catch up with you. Looking forward to working with you again."
- (To Remedios about the Sorcerer Kingdom): "That's true, and it's largely accurate...but it's wrong in some places...While the undead are everywhere, the humans there live safe and peaceful lives."
- (To Remedios about the Sorcerer King): "There are many kinds of undead, and the Sorcerer King is a ruler of the undead. Ordering the undead under his command not to harm human beings and enforcing that order is a simple matter for him."
- (To Remedios about the Re-Estize Kingdom): "Evileye...Mm, anyway, we still have the Sorcerer Kingdom before our eyes to deal with, so it's hard for them to aid your country. Also, a lot of people perished during the battle with the Sorcerer Kingdom, which will have grave consequences in the future. The nobles who appear so well-off are hardly as well-to-do as you might think."
- (To Remedios): "...Fighting on two fronts at once while you’re exhausted is very dangerous. I trust I don't need to tell you that, right?"
- (To Remedios): "Also, it's the same with us. Two of us were killed in combat with Jaldabaoth and while they were resurrected from the dead, they still have not regained their full strength yet. If we invade Jaldabaoth's territory in this state, we might all end up being killed."
- (To Remedios): "Tia! Excuse me. Ahem. I'm very sorry, but I don't think things will turn out as you imagine. So long as it involves the risk of facing Jaldabaoth, we will refuse this job. We need to become stronger than we are now in order to prepare for the future. ...This is just a hypothesis, but we need to get ready in case Jaldabaoth decides to attack the Kingdom once more."
