| Crown Princess of Nova|
She begins the game at 14 years of age, after her mother, Fidelia, has passed away and her father, Joslyn, Duke of Caloris, has summoned her back home from boarding school to be crowned queen. Elodie is shown to have slight Lumen powers inherited from her mother, even before obtaining a crystal.
She's the protagonist and player character, so all the story is witnessed from her point of view.
As expected from a court of intrigue though, many events she experiences or is forced to resolve originate behind her back. To discover them Elodie will have to increase certain skills to have more insight of her surroundings, or do things a certain way that will change the course of the game.
Elodie's personality depends on the players actions: she can be a naive child, a clever girl, a pacifist, a pragmatist, a tyrant or anything in between. However, some aspects remain constant regardless of Elodie's acquired personality.
Surprise threats will shock and scare her. Things that amuse her and good news will visibly cheer her up. She's somewhat self-depricating, but keeps it to herself. She can be bratty when imposing her wishes or rebuffing opposers. She is very critical of people she dislikes, and will think ill comments in their presence even if she doesn't express them. She is surprised when people older than her make romantic passes. No matter what, she loves her deceased mother and will recall memories of her for strength or when reminiscing.
In short, despite her high social standing and the heavy burden it carries, she's pretty much a typical 14-year-old girl.
Elodie starts the game as a timid, depressed, lonely girl with the terrible burden of a whole country suddenly on her back. It's the player choices that will shape what kind of queen she will become.

At the start of the game, Elodie has no significant skills in any of the areas required for her position, so the player has to train her from scratch.
Same as her personality, Elodie's abilities will depend on the player's actions, allowing her to become anything from a charismatic political leader, a weapons master, an cunning strategist, a chief spymaster, a talented healer, among others. Or simply become a clueless fool and lose her crown of gain it by sheer chance. And she'll DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Elodie has the potential to become a Lumen, a person with magical powers, thanks to the crystal she has inherited from her mother. As a Lumen she displays an affinity for light-based magic, but can also use it to summon fire and protective barriers at will, and if aided by other Lumen she can sink the ocean waters and cause earthquakes.
Even if she refuses her crystal, Elodie has inherited some magic from being born of a Lumen mother, as seen from the glow she emmits in the Queen epilogue image, the descriptions of Meditation training and one conversation with Julianna as magic mentor. This makes Elodie rather similar to her cousin Charlotte.

- Elodie's hairstyle is commonly known in anime communties as Ojou Ringlets (literally "Princess Ringlets"), appropiately enough given Elodie's status as Crown Princess.
- She has a weakness for sweets. Besides some specific feasts abundant in candy that Elodie can plan (her birthday party and the "Extravagant feast" for commoners), two of her most loving relationships are with a pattiseur and a baker (the Earl of Pastry and Evrard). The official trailer mentions that "Her only weakness is chocolate...", which is a problem the player will have to deal during Week 32...
- She may also have a thing for green eyes. Four of her marriage/romance options are green-eyed, three of which are romances fueled by love: Briony, Kevan, Ignatius and the Earl of Pastry. (Not counting characters who lack an in-game portrait or description).
"Elodie" is the French rendering of the name of Saint Alodia, a child martyr honored by the medieval Catholic Church. Following the astronomical theme naming of various characters, it's also the name of an asteroid. Her name also contains the word "die", which is something she will spend a lot of time doing. "Elodie" also sounds like a truncated pronunciation of "Melody", which results meaningful considering that the music competition is the only contest she can actually win, and the "best" ending archieved by "save(ing) the world with the power of music".
