Pre-Reincarnation Arc

Known as Varvatos in his past life, he was an orphan abandoned along with Olivia vel Vine in the slums. Somehow, by chance, Aisha met them and adopted them. Albeit, she was drunker, she taught them pickpocketing and gambling.

After The Outer Ones or Evil Gods enslaved humanity, the war began and with that conflict, Varvatos' second made got killed and so he decided to avenge his friend and change the world. To accomplish that he became the first human mage who acted as a savior of the world to save the world by defeating the Evil Gods. He had created magic language specifically for humanity and shared his knowledge with the world. But as half of the humans already acknowledged the Evil Gods as their supreme beings, Varvatos was considered a traitor to humankind and said to be more like a dog of Evil Gods. He came into the contract with Mephisto Yuu Phegor, an evil god, who promised Varvatos that he'll not lose anything if he joins him and does whatever he says. At Central Elmenera, Varvatos became a commander of the defending army to stop the rebel army led by Lydia. He fought her and won the battle with his magic manifested sword, Wyrm Tepes.

After reviewing some documents at Megatholium, he decided to take some rest on the advice of Rivelg. He saw the dream of his harsh childhood and how he met Mephisto. Mephisto, surprisingly, confronts Varvatos telling them that he had failed twice to kill his daughter, Lydia.

Under the disguise of Daniel Wilaski, Varvatos came out of his comfort zone and wanted to stroll around the streets and towns only to get self-satisfied that humanity is living in high spirits. While walking around, he came across an unexpected person, Lydia, who started a mock battle with some men for some showoff.

In the turn of events, he helped her and became her friend.

At the office, he was in deep thinking about why he is enjoying time with Lydia. Then Mephisto, coming out of nowhere, also asks the same thing and furthermore gave a threat that if he didn't kill his daughter, he would kill Olivia.

In the streets of Megatholium, Varvatos took Lydia to a low hill outside of town just for asking about what she felt about the nation. She gave an honest answer revealing that she liked the nation and she already knew that Varvatos was using a disguise. She then told him that she always admired him for fighting The Evil Gods which she can't muster the courage to do so. And that's she wanted to fight Varvatos with all her strength.

"If you can’t do anything by yourself and are too scared to walk alone, I’ll stay by your side. Till the day I die."
―Lydia to Varvatos, expressing her resolve

During his battle with Lydia, she opened his eyes to the truth and made him accept himself and the reality. As the battle seems to be cooled off, Mephisto appeared to do the job by himself but only to get failed by Varvatos and Lydia. Thus, Varvatos, who is now no longer the servant of Mephisto, decided to fulfill his desire to save the world along with newly made ally.

Ireena has a strong affection for Ard, which is unclear to her if that is love or not, she always wants to be with him even during doom days.

Unconditionally, need to say that Ireena's and Ard's relationship, reliving his relationship with Lydia. As her family shares the blood lineage of Lydia's, Ireena's father had to hide this fact from Ard, the demon lord reincarnation who killed Lydia with his own hands, to not break off the friendship between them.

Undoubtedly, their bond get even stronger as both of them already seems to accept each other's true selves. Ever since she had seen a glimpse of his true power, she decided to become strong and fight by his side.

Ireena is shown to be jealous whenever other girls get close to him. She had rejected Ginny's Ard's harem plan and claims that Ard only belongs to her.

Ard gave her confidence to fight with her own power. She begins to worship him and came to love him. When she suggested that she doesn't mind if Ard got a harem, Ireena tossed this matter. Ard taught her to control magic and to do silent-casting. She is too bold for showing her feelings in front of him to the point she says that even he got a harem she wants to be his number one, doing her best to get close to him and even seduce him with her charm magic(which get always failed because of Ireena).

Ard has never rejected Ginny's advances, appearing perplexed by them as no one has ever tried to seduce him in such a way.

Slyphy Marheaven

Ard thinks of hers, walking trouble. In his previous life, she always ruins his plans and annoys him with her stupid common sense. She wants to become stronger than him as Lydia thinks of him very highly.

She gets to know that he has reincarnated and now staying at Laville National Academy Of Magic with a masked man. Without even thinking, she rushes over to the Academy. Though she can be fooled easily, Ard hides that he is the demon lord's reincarnation when she asked him to. Throughout the series, she came to the conclusion that she shouldn't think that Ard is the Demon Lord and even came to fall in love with him by his kind nature.

At the end of Volume 2, when she was provoked by the masked man, she loses her sense of reasoning and nearly destroys everything that comes in her way but Ard defeated her and led her to come back to her senses.
