Description

Protagonist of the Rance series.

A warrior affiliated with the Keith Guild; when he's short on cash, he takes jobs from them. Most of the time, though, he simply travels around having adventures of his own accord, accompanied by his slave, Sill.

His goal in life is to assemble a harem consisting of all the hot women in the world and live it up.

Recently, though, he's taken it into his head to "conquer" the princesses of each of the four main kingdoms in the world - Ria from Leazas, Magic from Zeth, Kouhime from JAPAN, and Siera from Helman. At the moment, he's managed to snag Ria and Magic, with Kouhime being on hold for a few years until she grows up a little more.

Because of this recent pursuit, he's ended up heavily involved with events of historic significance in Leazas, Zeth, and JAPAN, with Helman next in line.

Description

Sill is a slave purchased by the great adventurer Rance in the year LP0001 prior to the events of Rance 01. Rance purchased her for 15,000 GOLD and has been forced to travel alongside him wherever he goes since then. However, Sill developed strong romantic feelings for him and, even though the "Absolute Obedience Magic" once cast on her has long since worn off, she remains single-mindedly loyal to Rance regardless. She was originally from a rich family in Zeth but under "certain circumstances" ended up in the slave market sold to Rance.

She is capable of using both offensive and healing magic, in addition to the creation of magic barriers. She is also known to have a large knowledge of worldly culture and history, as well as an understanding of many creatures. This is apparently due to her studying from a wide variety of books at a young age due to her origins from a noble family.

Description

First appearing in Rance II, she is Mill Yorks' older sister. Milli appears as both a tough warrior and glamourous girl in daily life but she also can be quite affectionate at times, especially when it comes to her sister, Mill, even to the extent that she dares to enter a dangerous labyrinth just for her.

She has a massive appetite for sex and, needless to say, gets along with Rance well because of it (though he doesn't like the fact that she's always the one dominating him when they're at it). She's also bisexual. She lives primarily as an adventurer and warrior but somehow also runs a pharmacy with her sister.

Her file in Kichikuou Rance says: "Most of her subordinates, whether man or woman, have been raped by her. Possibly because of that, she has good leadership over them. People tend to call her unit Queen Milli and her slaves".
