He goes to another world during the Great War together with the Crown Prince and the First Imperial Princess to capture that world’s guardian, and takes it to Bariura in order to gain an upper hand against the gods. Soon after he arrives, he orders a member of imperial family to create another beast to challenge the guardian. Unfortunately, the demonic beast then must be sealed away because it is too difficult to control. As if it isn’t enough, the mission to capture the guardian failed; many soldiers dies and the Emperor himself sustained a grievous wound that he passes away soon after.

Chrome then chose to be the commissioner of Bariura's special military force. He used his subordinates to gather valuable information from the shadows for the sake of the empire, though he always gathered any information having to do with his nieces by himself.

Dure is the commander of the expedition forces in the empire. He is often humiliated by his half-brother, although he never takes it with hard feelings.

Like the Eighth Princess, Melina received the training to be an assassin since her early years. During the training, Melina showed great enthusiasm, so much that she quickly mastered the art of assassination. Her father's appreciation enchants her ability further, so much that the Emperor then gives her the tasks to gather intelligence and infiltration. Everytime Melina brags about her achievements to her beloved uncle, though, he couldn’t help but feel troubled.
Melina is supposed to be in touch with prominent figures such as her uncle, or a dark magician in charge of all the empire’s magicians, and the former commander of the imperial knights. As the result, she is familiar with the inner workings of not only the nations she infiltrated, but the Bariura Empire as well, including the personal information of many people. She is feared by many, not only for her role as an assassin, but for the secrets she possesses.
When the Great War breaks out, at first, Melina works alongside the First Imperial Princess, mainly looking for a space distortion, and reports it to her half-sister. After she relays the information about the disappearance of the Emperor to Sirius, Melina reveals that she will go to “her uncle Chrome”, and states that she will never come back to Bariura. She doesn’t want to fight for the Empire, so she chooses to chase Chrome instead.

Selvia saved Feleen's life during the latter's childhood, and since then, Feleen gives her full loyalty to Selvia.
Alice is also trained in combat since her early years. Unlike the Sixth Princess, though, the harsh training ruins her concept of freedom, leaving Alice as a person who aimed only for military success. The more she used her scythe to slay the enemies of the empire, the more the scythe consumes her, makes her one step closer to the madness. The emperor notices this and lead her deeper into the darkness in hopes of making her into a weapon for the empire.
In the middle of the Great War, Alice finally lose her sanity as she kills not just the enemies, but also her own squad. She keeps fighting until finally she falls down in the middle of the battlefield, much to her older sister’s grief. The impact of her death to her older sister is great, that Elza goes into a killing spree to resurrect her. When Alice’s consciousness returns to her body, a light speaks softly to her. She has no recollection of what the light is, but she gets a familiar feeling from it nevertheless. A tear escapes her eye as she whispers “Sister…” before she continues fighting; this time, for her own will.
