A maid with a large girth. Responsible for bringing breakfasts to Rachel. Has some sort of relationship with a castle guard and some guy named Francis. Or possibly a castle guard named Francis (ah hah!). Does not have a strong mind and faints easily when overwhelmed.

Last seen naked, tied up with silk rope and gagged in a Rachel's bed. This is not quite as kinky as it sounds.

Princess Nadia

Currently maiming his multiple wives.

Prince Adrian

Crown prince of the realm. Does not have a reputation for horrifically maiming his multiple wives because he is single. Has red hair, green eyes and freckles. Apparently possesses a nice butt. Prince Adrian's meddling in Rachel's life was meant to protect his sister. His plan was to help Rachel escape so that she could could take Princess Nadia with her and prevent both of them from being married to the Barbarian King.

Nina

Princesses have been guarded by female guards ever since the incident with Crown Princess Joy during the reign of King Kenneth III. Her brother, King Kenneth IV, ascended the throne in 1205 and considered chastity belts and male guards to unreliable for obvious reasons. They tried to get eunuchs for a while, but there were no volunteers. The order of the Ninja Maids was started by King Tiffany (Don't ask) and is a secret order made for the guarding of Princesses. This maid is one of them. She has a killer right hook.
