A girl who Valence can't help but be baffled by, at least in terms of how much Hadris seems to trust her with. Valence doesn't think she's unbearably annoying, but she definitely thinks Aedi could be taking her job far more seriously. The problem is that she's still really just a kid...
One of the Representatives, but one who's scarily serious! Aedi doesn't really like hanging around her too much since she's not much fun, but she's pretty sure she can trust Valence. Not someone she's gonna be buds with, but someone she can still rely on in the end!
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!
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.
An obnoxious and rude boy who shouldn't have been trusted with the title of Representative and is constantly in disbelief that they're seriously considered equal. Valence scolds him pretty much every time they see each other. The amount of animosity between them is astounding.
On the inside she still cares about him like any of the other Representatives, but begrudgingly.
Literally the least fun person in the universe. No one could possibly be less fun than she is. She's a constant pain in his ass who's always ruining his fun! It's always rules this and manners that... the worst!
Her saving grace is that she can kick serious ass, which he has to admit is pretty cool.
Utterly frustrating. A rude troublemaker like Lausac who never listens to reason despite plenty of scolding. She's not nearly as bad as Lausac, but still enough for them to be on-edge around each other.
Kind of a huge wet blanket. Valence always yells at people about rules and being professional, but where's the fun in that? Loligo will admit she kicks ass, but doesn't really want to be around her when they're not fighting something. Yeah, she's dependable and a good leader, but man... they're always going to be business partners at best.
Hadris' personal assistant who Hadris seems to care a lot for, almost like a son... Valence is honestly a bit envious of him but otherwise doesn't have any problem with him. If anything, she's fond of him. She appreciates that he seems to have a good head on his shoulders and is respectful and considerate toward both her and his other co-workers.
One of the Representatives, though she happens to be rather uptight and serious compared to the others. Because of this he kinda sees her as the leader of the group, before even Hadris. They don't hang out much... they don't have too much in common and she's a little too stern to just hang around. He still respects and appreciates her, though!
A difficult person to describe. Septicemia helped raise her, in a while, but despite this Valence has always seen her as more of a younger sister. She's a little easier on Septicemia than she is when it comes to the rest of her co-workers, though they don't interact all too often outside of work.
Septicemia has watched Valence grow up, but always kind of from afar... Hadris adopted her right after the hardest part of Septicemia's life, so Septicemia spent much of Valence's life being kind of withdrawn from the world.
Still, she's grown up into a really impressive person! She's glad she's around.
One of the Representatives that she actually gets along with. Venith is very respectful, serious, and diligent, so they don't clash. There's the issue of her girlfriend being a thorn in her side, of course, but that's not something she can hold Venith accountable for.
While Valence still spends the majority of her spare time alone, every once in a while she'll have tea with Venith and talk about cool glassware or something.
Sort of the leader of the Representatives despite being one of the youngest there. Her youth doesn't keep Venith from having the utmost respect for her, however. Though Venith can understand why the other Representatives tend to not be terribly fond of her, Venith has no problem with her and finds it easy to stay in line with her orders and rules. Sometimes they'll even hang out outside of work!
She can't really be too mad at her for being hard on Loligo... she can be quite a handful!
A fellow Representative of hers whom she feels relatively neutral toward. Valence thinks Flann is a bit too fragile and needs better self-control, but overall they don't have much of a relationship as Valence tends to be distant outside of training, missions, and meetings.
One of her fellow Representatives, and certainly the most strict. Flann respects her and thinks highly of her, viewing her as a superior despite them holding the same rank in Hadris' empire.
It helps that she chews people out when they're being rude... *cough* lausac *cough*
Valence feels LeFleuris could have so much more potential... but he spends so much time on romance and petty things that most of his potential is wasted. Not to mention he won't let the mistakes of her youth be forgotten...
It's not like she enjoyed their brief fling back then or anything...
Long ago, back when Valence was young, they had a bit of a fling... just a little something Valence initiated to get a rise out of Hadris. He hasn't stopped teasing her about it since, so it's difficult for Valence to get him to treat her as a real authority figure.
Elemon was essentially another father to her, and she views him as such. She has nothing but respect for him. His strength, kindness, and firmness has shaped her into the person she is, and she spends every day being sure not to waste all of the lessons he's taught her, directly and otherwise.
Hadris' daughter, and Elemon feels his own as well. He's helped raise Valence and is deeply proud of the person she's become, which makes it all the more sorrowful that she's resisted immortality. Everyone he's ever cared for has either been immortal or has been killed in combat. The sort of slow withering Valence is going through... Elemon is unused to it, but has tried to accept her choice.
