Bell Cranel

The light novel chapter sections often alternate between his narrative and a third-person perspective. He has white hair and red eyes and his weapon is a pair of daggers. Bell is the sole owner of the rare skill called Liaris Freese which accelerates his growth and development based on the strength and stability of his feelings, but also drawing the interest of those who are curious about the secret behind it, as he quickly grew from level 1 to level 2, and later to level 3, then level 4 in the span of only a few months. He later obtains another skill, Argonaut, which allows him to greatly empower his attacks on critical situations, born from his desire to become a hero. He aspires to become as strong as Ais so he can confess his feelings to her, leading him to instinctively run away whenever he encounters her, until they become friends. His dream is to have a chance encounter with a girl and become a hero just like in the stories he listened from his grandfather, who is later revealed to be the god Zeus himself.
After the events with Wiene, he becomes shunned and considered a traitor in the eyes of Orario for protecting the Xenos from extinction. As he works to help them he faces his most deadliest opponent, the girl he admires most. He is the primary wielder of the Hestia Knife (value 200,000,000 valis ). This weapon is a living weapon made by Hephaestus as a favor to Hestia to help Bell grow and will grow more powerful as he does. In the hands of anyone not of the Familia the knife is useless, but Mikoto was able to locate it using her skill since she is part of the familia and able to use it escaping the Ishtar compound.
His nickname is “Little Rookie”, though some also call him the vorpal rabbit (in reference to an exceptionally lethal creature in the lower 30’s of the Dungeon that while small and fast, can take out even the toughest adventurers).

Ais Wallenstein

is a beautiful and powerful swordswoman of the Loki Familia. Aliased the Sword Princess, she is a level 5 adventurer who has killed over a thousand monsters and has turned down just as many suitors. She finally achieved Lvl 6 after defeating floor 37’s boss Monster Rex alone making her the 4th Lvl 6 adventurer in Loki’s Familia alongside Finn, Riveria, Gareth. She has blond hair and golden eyes. Bell first meets her in the Dungeon when she saves him from a Minotaur that escaped from her group and fled to the upper levels. Although she generally shows a quiet, emotionless personality, she knows of Bell and has defended him from her peers, who joke about his ineptitude during the Minotaur incident. After properly having a conversation with Bell, Ais appears to have developed an interest for him, helping with his training, but curious about how quickly he develops. She can use wind magic to allow her to do 3 dimensional fighting. Ais is the main character of the sidestory series Sword Oratoria which focuses on her own adventures, including a little bit of her history, while also showing events from the main series through her own point of view.
