The protagonist of this novel. He was a common boy who simply liked games, light novels and manga very much, but after being summoned to the Seldeas Continent by Aura, the Goddess of Death and Destruction, he becomes her divine son.
When he suffered, unable to adapt to the world to which he had been summoned, he’s saved by a zoan girl called Shyemul. Because of that debt of gratitude, he ended up fighting against the humans’ military forces to save the zoan’s 〈Fang Clan〉 that was about to be destroyed.
Starting with the 「Battle of Hoghnareah Hill」, where he reduced 800 soldiers of Holmea’s army to ash, he went through the 「Capture of the Plains Fortress」, the 「Slave Revolt of Bolnis」 and 「Bolnis’ Decisive Battle」, resulting in him being fearfully called 「Divine Son of Destruction」 at last.
After his death he’s regarded as mass-murderer, the worst destroyer in history, but that reality hasn’t come to pass yet.
His blessing as divine child is his inability to destroy or damage all kinds of objects and people with his own hands.
Fagul Garguss Shyemul
A cheerful zoan girl with chestnut-colored fur. She’s a proud warrior, referred to as 《Noble Fang》.
Due to her earnest and stubborn character of never bending her will, no matter what obstacles might lie in her way, once she has decided on something, there are many situations where her elder brother Garam worries about her.
She was captured by the humans after getting injured by a stray arrow when the zoan attacked the Plains Fortress, but because of that she had her fated meeting with Souma who had been just summoned to Seldeas. After that, she got in contact with Souma’s personality, resulting in her accepting him as her 「Navel Master」 while fully devoting all of herself to him.
Going by the aesthetic sense of the zoan, she seems to be a peerless beauty.
Shyemul’s blessing is the protection of her own pride by the Beast God. In exchange for becoming unable to act contrary to her pride, people, who try to hurt her pride using improper means, are struck by calamity.
Although it might be called calamity, it’s most of the times something modest, but there’s also the case of death in agony like the company commander of the Plains Fortress due to acts of hurting Shyemul’s honor.
Fagul Garguss Garam
A black-furred warrior who is Shyemul’s elder brother and the clan chief of the Fang Clan, one of the 12 zoan clans. A distinctive sword cut scar runs from his brows, down along the nose bridge to the right cheek. Not only is he a highly superior warrior, who’s young and even called the strongest of the plains, but he’s known for his high pride and bravery, gathering respect from warriors of the other clans.
Kraga Bigana Zurgu
A red-furred warrior, clan chief of the Claw Clan, one of the 12 zoan clans. His left eye was crushed by Garam during an exhibition match.
He’s a feared, ferocious warrior going by the name 《Mad Claw》, possessing an ability as warrior comparable with that of Garam. A deep rivalry against Garam, who is referred to as the plains strongest while being of the same generation, burned in his heart, but after getting a feel on the bigger image seen by Souma, he starts to stand by Garam’s side instead.
After his death he’s regarded as brave general extolled as 《Arm of Wrath》, one of the Seven Arms.
Fagul Jagata Gulkaka
A red-furred zoan of the Fang Clan.
A warrior in the prime of his life, who served Garam’s father, the previous clan chief, as right-hand man. Although he could have become clan chief after Garam’s father’s death, he’s a peculiar man who supports Garam as clan chief as his advisor.
His nickname is 《Tenacious Fang》.
Fagul Unuka Gajeeta
A young warrior of the Fang Clan. Because of his unyielding spirit and his strong confidence in himself, he directly said what he thought, even if the other party might have been an adult warrior. In return, he gathered the support of the young zoan harboring rebellious feelings towards the adults. After Garam became the clan chief, he rose into a leader-like position for the young warriors.
However, being utterly defeated after arbitrarily attacking the human encampment, he finally went on a rampage in the human fortress, trying to recover his lost reputation, and lost an arm after suffering heavy injuries. Thereafter he fled from the village and his whereabouts are unknown as of yet.
Fagul Gulshata Shahata
The sole zoan among within the Fang Clan who works as hunter using a bow.
As he can’t run because of an injury from his childhood, he learned archery.
Because bows were looked down upon as weapons of cowards by the zoan, he still hadn’t been recognized as warrior, spending his days in depression.
But, in the Hoghnareah Hill battle he magnificently accomplished the important duty of setting the buildings ablaze with fire arrows, recovering his pride in the process. Feeling a deep debt of gratitude to Souma, who gave him the opportunity for that, he becomes his guard.
Manuyn Gujatara Banuka
A young zoan of the Mane Clan. His father is the clan chief Manuyn Gujatara Bararak.
He’s a spoiled boy that sometimes fails to sense the mood with his words and actions, but he doesn’t forget to pay attention to clan members with kindness. He’s a disappointing person, who always puts great effort into things while having a desire to improve himself, but ends up wasting his time with fruitless efforts instead.
He’s harboring feelings of love and respect – close to faith – towards Shyemul.
Kraga Bunuka Shishul
A small girl with mandarin-orange fur belonging to the Claw Clan. She’s Zurgu’s niece.
After Garam became the Great Clan Chief, she was nominated as his adjutant by Zurgu. She’s devotedly working as Garam’s aide.
Her being recommended as aide was a move to drown out any anxiety towards the Claw Clan and thus took the shape of her being partially seen as a hostage, but she’s been attracted to Garam, a hero who defeated her uncle Zurgu, for some time now without minding the inter-clan circumstances.
Wai Zanuka Shunpa
A gentle, middle-aged woman who is the younger sister of the Head Priestess of the Eye Clan.
