Ralph Niaflem 「ラルフ・ニアフレム Rarufu Niafuremu[1] is a servant of House Grinberryall, the former royal family of the Spade Kingdom.[2]


Ralph is a man with short, shaggy light-colored hair and light stubble around his mouth.

Ralph wears a dark-colored, long sleeve shirt under a light-colored vest. His dark-colored pants tuck into a pair of knee-high, light-colored boots. A grimoire pouch hangs off the left side of his belt, and a smaller pouch hangs off the right.

As a young man, he has shaggy hair but is clean shaven.[3]



Ralph is wholeheartedly dedicated and loyal to House Grinberryall, the rightful royal family of his homeland. He is moved to tears upon seeing the long lost heir, Yuno.


After the Dark Triad overthrows House Grinberryall and takes over the Spade Kingdom, Ralph joins the resistance movement.[4]

On his own, Ralph crosses the Grand Magic Zone separating the Spade and Clover Kingdoms. Arriving outside Hage's church, Ralph collapses from exhaustion and his injuries. Sister Lily approaches him, and he asks for Yuno.[5] Lily and Father Orsi move Ralph into a bed to recover while they wait for Yuno to arrive.

When Yuno enters, Ralph immediately recognizes his physical similarity to Ciel as well as the magic stone that Yuno wears around his neck. Ralph relates the Spade Kingdom's peaceful past until the Dark Triad took over, and then reveals that Yuno is the heir of House Grinberryall and thus the rightful prince.[6] Orsi and Sylph are shocked by the revelation, and Ralph questions what Sylph is. After the spirit explains, Ralph compliments Yuno's abilities. Yuno doubts Ralph's claims about his lineage, so Ralph shows Yuno visions of the past and explains that it was Ralph's father who brought Yuno to Hage. Their conversation is interrupted by a call from the Golden Dawn base which is being attacked.[7] Ralph warns Yuno not to go but is ignored.[8]

Ralph races after Yuno and finds the vice-captain dying amidst the rubble of the squad's base.[9] William Vangeance's Budding of Yggdrasil activates and heals Yuno and the other injured Golden Dawns. Ralph is relieved that Yuno has survived.[10]
