Masquerade ~ Sinner ~

Your younger half-brother.

Due to the poor health of the eldest son Noel, who was the legitimate heir to the Aldonaut House, Leo was taken in along with his mother, the duke’s mistress, on the off chance that something were to happen to Noel.

However, afterward, because of the birth of the youngest son from the legal wife, Leo was effectively useless.

He was scorned by his surroundings for being a child of infidelity and, along with his rough and savage personality and status equal to a servant, it was rumored that he “held resentment towards the Aldonaut House”.

STORY:

“Even if you’re covered in mud, even if you have to crawl on the ground, live—”

In the Kingdom of Tilia, it was decided that you, a daughter of the Aldonaut House, were to marry into the royal Laurus House in the neighboring country.

To celebrate your marriage a masquerade ball, which was in fashion, was held.

It was a gorgeous night where resplendently dressed men and women wearing masks were covered in the smell of secrets.

It should have been your last enjoyable memory of freedom as an unmarried daughter—

But chaos descended on the masquerade ball when displeased countrymen intruded without warning.

You escaped into an anteroom during the mayhem, but what you saw there was the bloody and collapsed duke, your father—and your younger half-brother, Leo, who raised his hand against him.

For waterinegirl as the lucky winner of my 9th anniversary giveaway! R18 warning and noncon at the beginning plus violent bad end. I personally couldn’t even get through the bad end tokuten. On another note, you can also get this on DLsite but it seems like JP side only.

SETTING:

[The Duke of Aldonaut]

This house has the right to inherit the throne as a branch of the royal Tilia House.

Their lineage repeatedly married within itself and produced a great number of “Bloody Queens” as a result of a bloodline fallen into madness and, due to this, they have now reduced the frequency of their close marriages.

Despite Duke Aldonaut having a status second to the royal house, due to producing many Queens in the past, the legend of “The Bloody Queen” does not allow members of the Aldonaut House to inherit the throne.

[The Bloody Queen]

The daughter of the Aldonaut House who married Tilia’s Fourth Prince 400 years ago.

She was an unparalleled beauty, whose appearance could even ruin a country.

The First, Second, and Third Princes either died young or lost the fight to succession, and so it was the Fourth Prince who inherited the throne. The duke’s court rank ascended in an instant upon his daughter becoming queen and he was prosperous.

Eventually, the queen descended into madness and, using her charm, emasculated the king and controlled the royal house with him as her puppet. At the same time, she ruled over the people in tyranny and bound the country’s people with terror.

Not only did imprisonment and execution become a daily part of the royal capital, but the queen herself began to torture slaves to death for her own enjoyment.

It escalated after that to gathering and bathing in the blood of young men, collecting jars of excised organs and genitals, and she was said to have plausibly transformed into a grotesquely sexual deviant.

[The Kingdom of Laurus]

The country located next to the Kingdom of Tilia, ruled by the royal Laurus House.

It is a small country similar to Tilia, but their national powers rival each other. Presently, both countries are maintaining peace after the war which occurred 50 years ago, but the antagonism at the center of the older generation remains behind and there is a sense of tension similar to treading on thin ice.

Reminder that this whole series is interconnected with an amazing twist in the last volume, but it’s not necessary to listen to them in order. They just mention the actions the other men were taking in the other volume(s). I also noticed there are multiple short stories for them set before these CDs… oh god.

Himeutsugi (姫空木)
CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke (立花 慎之介)

Himeutsugi is a second year Kaei of the Gekkougumi. Everyone thinks of him to be a kind, deeply considerate, and sympathetic person. In fact, he is frequently called “Hime-sama” which is a play on his name and means “Princess”. But he’s actually known to be a playboy in his own right, at least among his minamo; though he gets along well with men too. He was a scholarship student whose talents brought him to Kaen, where he quickly became one of the 5 Brights and close friends with Mizuchi.

DAY 20. Mikoto heads to the auditorium where the 5 Brights (actually only Iroha and Karakurenai) are supposed to propose to her. WE’RE DETOURING TO GET A BAD END.

(Decided to move these character song translations into their own category instead of crowding the end of the posts. Don’t mind these upcoming repeats! I’ll be tackling Himeutsugi-hen songs as well after I finish re-posting Mizuchi-hen songs.)

Himeutsugi (姫空木)
CV: Tachibana Shinnosuke (立花 慎之介)

Himeutsugi is Rank 4 among the 5 Brights and is a second year kaei of the Gekkougumi. Everyone thinks of him to be a kind, deeply considerate, and sympathetic person. In fact, he is frequently called “Hime-sama” which is a play on his name and means “Princess”. But he seems to have a hidden side to him, a side which not many can see or even understand. Perhaps the “Princess” doesn’t want to be a “Princess”.

DAY 21. Mikoto wakes up in her room and realizes that today is the day where she has to decide on a partner for her to do kabatsu with and to awaken as a senki.
