Upon meeting Dalian, a child living at the estate, he learns that she is the guardian of the Archives which contain forbidden knowledge stored in thousands of magic books called "Phantom Books" (幻書 gensho). Upon agreeing to become Dalian's new Keykeeper, Huey joins her into investigating incidents regarding people misusing the power of the Phantom Books, most of them with tragic consequences, and using his power as Keykeeper to seal the power of the Phantom Books and restore order to the area.

Characters

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono
Dalian's Keykeeper, also known as Huey. A young man with wavy dark blonde hair and sharp blue eyes, he is a former Air Force Pilot and the grandson of the previous Keykeeper Sir Wesley Disward, who left Huey the Bibliotheca Mystica de dantalian-no-shoka-ep03-003.pngDantalian and Dalian in his will. He is often seen as a calm and generally unfazed character who takes everything in stride, as he accepted his new-found responsibilities as the Keeper of the Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian without much question or argument. When he retrieves books from Dalian, he appears as a young child inside of the Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian, speaking with a librarian or possibly even the materialized form of the archives themselves (which normally takes the appearance of a girl dressed in white with twin silver pigtails and purple eyes). He and Dalian appear to share a very formal and business-like relationship.

The Kuro Yomihime (黒読姫, literally "black reading princess"), or Black Biblioprincess. A young girl with long black hair tinted purple and large dark pink eyes, she is the custodian of the Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian housing 900,666 phantom books. Because of this, she generally considers herself of great dantalian_no_shokaaaaaaa.jpgimportance and believes to be more knowledgeable than most humans, even going so far as to praise others in an presumptuous manner when they exhibit more wisdom than she anticipated. When asked a question that calls for a confirmatory answer, she will reply "Yes" in English rather than Japanese. She is often seen as a judgmental and arbitrary character, which clashes with her unexpected weakness for sweets; whenever presented with something sweet, or the opportunity to eat something sweet, a small lock of her hair will flick out from the rest of her head.
dantalian-no-shoka-06-key-keeper-hal-kamhout-with-book.jpgHal Kamhout (ハル・カムホート Haru Kamuhōto)
Flamberge's Keykeeper. He has sharp blue eyes and long side-swept brown hair. He and Flam do not share a very warm-hearted relationship, and will often use the phrase "Keep your mouth shut, you piece of junk" in response to Flam's endless accusations of being a pervert. Rather than reading the Phantom Books he retrieves from the Long-Lost Library, he places them in the Staff of Surtr that he carries, and uses the book as fuel for the fire the staff produces, burning any Phantom Books he comes across along with the memories the current owner had in relation to them. Thus, because of this, he refers himself as a "Libricide Officer". He is often seen as a very serious and highly observant character, and appears to have highly advanced deduction and cognitive abilities.
flamberge_28490.jpgFlamberge (フランベルジュ Furamberuju)
The Gin Yomihime (銀読姫, literally "silver reading princess") or Silver Biblioprincess, otherwise known as the custodian of the Long-Lost Library. She is often called just "Flam" for short. She appears to be a girl in her teenage years, with long silver hair and sharp magenta eyes.flamberge.jpg She wears a white straitjacket with nine padlocks, although she says that she chose to wear it herself because she thought it "matches Hal's tastes". In comparison to Huey's technique of retrieving Phantom Books from Dalian, the method used by Hal to retrieve books from Flam is shown to be very raw, painful and less dignified. She is often seen as a very arrogant and unpleasantly blunt character, and enjoys harassing Hal by accusing him of having perverted tendencies or a dirty mind.
Professor (教授 Kyōju)
Rasiel's key keeper.
Rasiel (ラジエル Rajieru)
The Aka Yomihime (赤読姫, literally "red reading princess") or Red Biblioprincess. She wears an eyepatch with a keyhole.
dantalian03-20.jpgCamilla Sauer Keynes (カミラ・ザウアー・ケインズ kamira Zauā Keinzu)
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto
A childhood friend of Huey, Camilla is a woman with large green eyes and bright blonde hair, which she keeps non-traditionally short, claiming it is a trend from the New World that will soon catch on. Similarly, she also dresses in fashions or "trends" from across the globe, which she picked up while traveling. Dalian usually calls her a spinster, and seems to harbor a dislike for Camilla, but she does not let this bother her and tries to get on Dalian's good side by presenting her with sweets, a weakness of Dalian's that she picked up on fairly quickly. She works as a teacher and runs a school for the neighborhood children. She seems to have some knowledge of the Phantom Books due to an incident with the Book of Wisdom. She is often seen as a very bright-spirited and cheery person, and she seems to be the least serious person in a dire situation; rather, her personality will become curiously confused or distraught.
images.armandjeremiah.jpgArmand Jeremiah (アルマン・ジェレマイア Aruman Jeremaia)
A friend of Huey's, Armand is a man with short dark blond hair and meek dark purple eyes who was assigned to the same air base as him when they were both working as Air Force pilots during the war. His father is an owner of a famous shipbuilding company. Because Huey was his superior commanding officer during the war, he has a habit of calling him "Lieutenant," despite Huey's attempts to get him to drop the title. He seems to have some knowledge of the Phantom Books due to an incident when a courtesan he was infatuated with requested him of a Phantom Book, and even used the Phantom Book himself while protecting her from a magician. He is often seen as a very dramatic and love-sick person, especially in the presence of his current crush.
Jessica Elphinstone (ジェシカ・エルフィンストン Jeshika Erufinsuton)
A student at the boarding school where Huey's aunt serves as the principal.
