One of his personal assistants, who he picked up from a highly unfriendly planet.. He finds her charming and lovable and is more concerned about her well-being than he makes apparent. He thinks she brightens everything up and likes to have her around - she's the perfect person to raise morale!
The overlord who took her in and kinda saved her life, to be honest. She sees him as kind of being her dorky new dad even though at first she was intimidated by him. She really likes working for him!
(So please, please don't ruin this for me... I don't want to hurt anyone here!)
hey remember the time you and some other guys went with me on a ~magical subconscious adventure~ and you found a whole bunch of incriminating evidence about my kinda-boss (and also me but i'm not entirely aware of that yet) and everything just went really wrong?? haha i sure hope not
One of his personal assistants on Terre. Orange is sort of remarkable to him; Hadris indirectly and unintentionally ruined his life thanks to the anti-Hadris rally that led to the death of Orange's family and almost Orange himself. Needless to say, it came as a shock that once Orange was conscious he expressed an interest in becoming a part of Hadris' empire. Simultaneously concerned and flattered, making sure Orange is taken care of has become a high priority of Hadris'. He sees him and treats him as his son.
...He worries he's giving himself too big of a weak point, though.
The overlord he decided to join up with, disagreeing with his family that he was evil and a threat to their well-being. Having nothing to lose, he threw himself into Hadris' empire with little hesitation, hoping to be useful. Though he knew Hadris wasn't a terrible person, Orange was surprised to discover just how kind and friendly he really was. Hadris made every effort to make sure Orange was probably cared for and had the opportunity to learn whatever he needed about the empire, which just proved to Orange that he still had something to live for.
Orange has a lot of respect for Hadris and looks up to him almost like a father. Even as he learns about the dark sides of Hadris' work, Orange's trust doesn't waver significantly.
That pesky All-Conquering Overlord who keeps... All-Conquering things! There's not much she can do to stop him and it would be more beneficial to just work alongside him, but where's the dignity in that?!
One of the people he cares for the most out of everyone in Entirety. Xe taught him how to feel, how to learn, and how to grow. Xe's the reason he feels any emotion at all and was the primary driving force behind making Hadris' empire as successful and peaceful as it is. He was devastated when Monaz decided to leave, leaving him alone with all of these developing human emotions he now has to figure out on his own.
He misses xyr dearly, though he seldom talks about xem. He knows Monaz wouldn't want him to linger on xem and instead would want Hadris to focus on building his empire and creating a bright future for Entirety - a bright future Hadris hopes will be safe enough for Monaz to want to come back to someday.
Xyr closest friend and the person xe loves most. They grew so much together, but... Monaz just feels like xe can't protect him or the things he loves. Xe doesn't want to drag him down, and xe doesn't want to get so close to him that xe becomes something Memen could use against him.
Even still, xe's filled with a sense of longing...
His favorite chef who he managed to befriend! Eeeeeee! They're pretty close friends and tend to talk about their complicated feelings on morality when they aren't talking about souls and demonic stuff. Hadris hopes he'll be able to help Laejizhar's son, but Baldasarre's condition has proven to be remarkably stubborn...
A fan-turned-friend who is certainly his most valuable ally in his quest to save Baldasarre's life. Laejizhar admires Hadris to some extent and often wonders how someone with such power could find themself idolizing someone like himself.
One of his Representatives who he took in long ago. He wants to help her shine and fully regain autonomy, and his belief in her is endless.
Admittedly, it's sometimes hard to look at her after /that/ happened... but he won't let her know that and he won't let it show. She deserves so much better.
The man who helped her regain her independence and essentially saved her life. Septicemia is really grateful toward him. Hadris has shown her boundless patience, working with her for hundreds of years and never getting mad at her through relapses. Even after Memen used her, he still shows her kindness... Hadris is a really amazing person to her.
One of his Representatives and one of the ones he feels particularly protective over. Hadris treats Lausac not unlike a teenaged son, never failing to let him know when he's proud of him or disappointed in him. They interact very often.
The overlord who saved his life and his planet. Lausac is fiercely loyal to Hadris and would do anything in his name without question. He feels like he owes him the world and then some despite Hadris assuring him otherwise. Lausac looks up to him and respects him almost like a father, though he'd probably never say that out loud.
One of his Representatives, and probably the one he had the hardest time recruiting. He doesn't hold anything against her for that, of course; if he had been in her shoes, he would've tried to kill him, too. What matters now is that she's dedicated, strong-willed, intelligent, loyal, and overall exactly the kind of person he wants to be associated with him and his empire.
Her boss. He saved her from a dark place even when she kept pushing him back, and she really respects that. He didn't make the best first impression, but he's proven himself to be a good guy that she's willing to give her life for.
One of his Representatives. He holds Venith in high esteem. She's everything he looks for in an ally: strong of heart and mind, powerful in terms of abilities, gentle but firm, and loyal but not blindly so. He doesn't hesitate to put her in positions of leadership and discuss serious matters with her. Though there's no official ranking of any kind, Venith's maturity and responsibility has led to Hadris treating her more like the older Representatives than those who joined at around the same time that she did.
The man who saved her life, her planet, and gave her a reason to keep living. She feels indebted to him and is unshakably loyal to Hadris has his allies. It helps that he himself is such a kind and caring person; even if he hadn't done the things he did for her she wouldn't mind working for him. He's just so easy to like, and thus far her trust in him hasn't been misplaced.
His adopted daughter whom he loves dearly. He thinks she's grown into a fantastic person, but he wishes she'd lighten up a little and remember to have fun with life! He hopes she understands how proud he is of her.
Her father, who she's desperate to please. She often feels like a burden to him and just wants him to be proud of her and love him as much as she does. She doesn't seem to be able to accept the fact that he already is and does - and to quite an extreme degree, at that!
Hadris seldom has qualms working alongside other evil beings, but Ignis is a special case. On the surface Hadris has no issue with him, but a recent trip to the subconscious of Ignis' primary foe changed his opinion pretty quickly.
Hurting fairly innocent people is one thing, but Hadris' primary concern is that Ignis seems to be involved with forces Hadris wants no part of, especially while he has so many greater concerns to deal with.
Ignis genuinely respects Hadris's accomplishments in the field of being an all-conquering overlord, particularly his early work. Proposing an alliance was only natural for Ignis... as was the expectation that Hadris would soon enough find said alliance distasteful. What better way to discourage hostilities than letting your potential rival know just what you're capable of?
Placing Hadris firmly on Black's bad side was just an added bonus.
One of his darling Representatives! Thinks of Flann very fondly, almost like a daughter, and thinks she's just the most precious thing. He kinda wishes he could utilize her power to utterly destroy his enemies, but he respects her boundaries!
The overlord who offered her the opportunity to live past the world she suffered in. Flann has learned to trust him and has a very high amount of respect for him, seeing him as something like a father figure. She's grateful for his very existence and the things he's set out to do.
One of his Representatives and, among them, perhaps his closest advisor. Hadris admires LeFleuris' sharp tongue and his experience with the darkest of depths. Combined with his pragmatism but earnest desire to do good, LeFleuris makes a perfect aide. Hadris has always wanted someone of his archetype to keep secrets and lie and betray him every now and then. He plays the part so well, sometimes Hadris forgets how much LeFleuris cherishes him! He finds that very endearing.
LeFleuris' boss. Liege, rather. Hadris is many things to LeFleuris, frankly. Without Hadris' aid there's no way The Bloom's rebellion could have succeeded, and if he had never shown up... well, LeFleuris is sure he'd be lucky to have simply been killed. Though he enjoys playing the part of evil advisor to Hadris, in the end his loyalty is rock solid.
