Aultcray Melromarc XXXII (オルトクレイ=メルロマルク32世 Orutokurei Meruromaruku San Ni Sei?) is the Staff Hero (?), one of the Seven Star Heroes and the former King of Melromarc.

His name was officially changed to Trash (クズ Kuzu?) by the request of the Shield Hero and the authority of the Queen of Melromarc.


Information to be added later on.


Aultcray formerly lived up to his name as the wise king of Melromarc. Despite being a Staff Hero, he was known for his formidable intelligence. He was respected by his allies and his enemies alike. By all accounts, he was extremely active and heroic in his earlier days, earning a grand reputation among the kingdoms of the world. All this indicates that, for all his hatred and recklessness, he was at one point a cunning and intelligent person with a hero's renown.

The queen stated that his wisdom earned him great respect and that even now if he was sent to the border, it would cause turmoil among the enemy just by seeing him. Even the slave trader claims that the nation Melromarc might have been nothing in the name or in standing among the nations if it wasn't for Aultcray. Many citizens and nobles still have faith in him.

Though he was from Faubley, a country with no discrimination against any races, he hated demi-humans for killing his parents and has a specific kind of hate for the White Tiger (Hakuko) variant of them. This hatred caused him to rush to Melromarc, where he could be as openly hostile to them as possible and aid the kingdom in its war against Siltvelt, the demi-human country. He hates the Shield Hero because he fought a war with Siltvelt, a country that worships him.

However, the current generation and the heroes doubt others claim of him. Rishia believes her parent's view of Aultcray, but wonders if his current behavior is a political act. Even his own second daughter is disgusted with him fawning over her sister and doubts her mother's stories of him. In the time of the Spirit Tortoise rampage, he refused to fight which caused a ruckus. This made Naofumi discard any of his past deeds and felt they were probably exaggerations of actual events. Naofumi believes that Trash (Aultcray) might have been a military strategist who was only good at aggravating things, but the queen claims he is much wiser than that. The queen who has seen him most of her life feels disgusted with how far he is sunk from being remarkable to a complete idiot. The queen also points his idiocy might be due to a decade of peace and also because of his spoiling of his first daughter, Malty.

He is a doting parent and a loving husband. But failed to be a king which is contrary to his wife.

Besides the fact that he is the Staff Hero, he described as a genius tactician who being feared by other countries in the past. He could plan all of the war tactics just by collecting a little information in a short time. Even during the time of peace, he retained his militaristic sense. When playing Chess with his wife, he would yawn in the victory while his wife, who is also a shrewd tactician, would be left baffled. He would only hold back and let his older daughter, Malty win.


He was the third legitimate heir to the throne of Faubley, the strongest country in this world. But then an incident came that robbed him of that privilege. That incident involved the killing of his parents and many others close to him by the Hakuko.

Luckily, Lüge and his younger sister Lucia were not there at the time, but the country of Faubley did nothing in retaliation against Siltvelt for political reasons. Because of that, Lüge began to despise both Faubley and Siltvelt. He along with his sister moved to Melromarc, which discriminated against Demi-Humans, and changed his name.

Aultcray hid the fact that he was of Royal Blood, and rushed onto the frontlines of the wars Melromarc waged. Along the way, the previous Staff Hero fought to the death with Aultcray for the right to wield it, and he began to spread his name as a Hero. At that time, due to his resourcefulness and strength, he won the heart of Mirellia Q Melromarc.

But, while Aultcray ventured off, he had left behind his sightless sister. Soon, he received word that she had disappeared with nothing left behind but a pool of blood, and was informed that a Hakuko had killed her. Aultcray's desire for revenge strengthened. This has culminated in making him a man who deeply hates demi-humans and, by association, the Shield Hero whom they worship. After many years of war, he challenged and killed the Hakuko supreme of Siltvelt, Tai Ran Ga Feon.

Later, he married into the royal family of Melromarc and had his name changed to the choice of his wife Mirellia. Roughly twenty-some years ago, when Siltvelt plotted for global domination, it was Lüge that faced them head-on, saving Melromarc and other countries as well. Thanks to him many countries exist peacefully. Rishia's family and other nobles still firmly believe that Melromarc would remain peaceful and secure as long as Aultcray was there. Mirellia also claims that despite his treatment of Naofumi, he used to aid anyone, no matter how much hatred he bears towards them if it brings him some benefit or debt owed to him.

After he and Mirellia had their first daughter, Malty, he spoiled her rotten and both became incredibly callous. Malty owes much of her arrogant and cruel tendencies to her father because she did whatever she wanted with no consequences and punished those she victimized if they took any form of action about it. Seeing this, his wife took their second daughter under her wing to prevent this same kind of failed upbringing. This peaceful time finally clouded his way of seeing things and was easily manipulated.
