Plot[edit]

In a land of dragons, civilians called breeders raise and train their dragon pals (スティード?, lit. steed). Races of dragons are born from breeders who are marked with Seikoku (西谷義?, lit. Star Brand), at a young age by the Mother Dragon at the Orphan Rite those chosen worthy, until it is time for them to manifest. Breeders may eventually achieve the rank of nobility by helping their Pal become a Maestro, or Holy Dragon.

Learning to ride and tame dragons comes easy to most students at Ansarivan Dragonar Academy — except for Ash Blake, a first-year student who is known by his classmates as the "problem child." Despite his unusually large star brand that marks him as a future dragon master, his pal has never appeared. Until now, that is. While challenging fellow student, princess Silvia Lautreamont, to a dragon race, Ash's dragon appears, but in a form different than any dragon ever seen before - a beautiful girl! Ash names her Eco and soon discovers that this new dragon has attitude to spare, as she promptly informs him that she is the master, and he, her servant. Ash's problems with dragon riding have only just begun.

Characters[edit]

Main characters[edit]

Ash Blake (アッシュ・ブレイク Asshu Bureiku?)[2]
Voiced by: Kōji Takahashi (Drama CD/Anime) (Japanese); Aaron Dismuke (English)
A 16-year-old student at the academy, Ash's dragon "Pal" hasn't awakened. He is known as a "problem child" due to his tendency to react violently to any perceived insult to his yet-to-be-born dragon. Despite his poor reputation, his unusual talent, a phenomena called Chalice, making him the only human (aside from his sister, Linda) able to ride other people's dragons. As a child he had no interest in becoming a Breeder but he met Silvia Lautreamont by chance during the Orphan Rite and assisted her in finding the Mother Dragon who found him worthy to become a breeder rather than Silvia. Ash insisted on giving Silvia his Pal despite the Mother Dragon's wishes and associated risks which resulted in him losing his left arm. Aware of his ability to ride any dragon, not wishing to waste such talent, Mother Dragon gave Eco to him thus replacing his lost arm itself as his Star Brand.
After having saved the town during the Necromancia incident, Ash is deified as the Arch-bearing "Silver Knight", which corresponds to a noble rank. He accepts the offer of student council general affairs. He is later officially Knighted by Paladin Oswald, which grants him the title of Dragonar and increases his popularity with the girls of the Academy. Navi also calls him the Knight of Avalon due to him being Eco's master. In Ash's second year, he takes the Student Council President position and then founded the independent Order of the Avalon Knights.
Eco (エーコ Ēko?)
Voiced by: Mariya Ise (Drama CD/Anime) (Japanese); Lara Woodhull (English)[2]
Ash's dragon pal who takes the form of a human girl. She treats Ash as her servant, much to the latter's annoyance, even though she has feelings for him. In reality, Eco is fully aware that Ash is her master and that she is the "pet" (as she describes herself), but she doesn't want to admit it because of her pride. She also believes that if she submits that she will be nothing but a "tamed pet" and will then only be loved as one, which is not the kind of love she wants from Ash. She enjoys eating crepes and especially anything mixed with Ansil - the draconic equivalent of alcohol - which is strictly prohibited to dragons since it makes them unruly. When Eco gives Ash the magical suit of armor known as an Ark, they also give an Ark Weapon. The Ark Weapon is infused with an elemental power, and dangerous to opponents.
She is later revealed to be the Avalon's Holy Dragons' Emperor Family's Imperial Princess and her full name is Eco Aurora-Christa Pendragon Lena Anherusu-Ilya Roransu Liliane-Muriel-Octavia-Robertine de la Rosa Resuperansu van de Compostela Avalon. According to the Mother Dragon, Eco is both human and dragon. This was arranged in order for her to breed with Ash and save the dragon race from extinction.

Voiced by: Ayane Sakura (Drama CD/Anime) (Japanese); Elizabeth Parker (English)
Fourth princess of the Lautreamont Knight Family and a Dragonar. Her "pal" is a white Maestro Dragon named Lancelot. It is revealed that she wasn't supposed to become a Dragonar, but Ash yielded Lancelot to her when the two of them met as children during the Orphan Rite. Neither of them remember meeting nor the subsequent events. Silvia soon joins the student council with Ash in charge of public morals. She is completely terrified of her older sister, Veronica, but overcomes her fears when Veronica recognizes her skills. Despite being the 4th child of the king, her older siblings are either not interested in politics, or have gone missing, which has left her as heir-presumptive to the throne.
During their second visit to Albion Forest to search for the Mother Dragon as part of an examination, Silvia and Ash regain their lost memories. Finally realizing the magnitude of everything that Ash has done for her (giving up Lancelot and getting injured in the process), she declares her love for him and kisses him, causing her to quarrel with Eco. In later volumes, Silvia also becomes an Arch Dragonar, and Vice-President of the Academy.

Lautreamont Knight Country[edit]

Lautreamont Royal Family[edit]

Oswald Lautreamont (オズワルド・ロートレアモン Ozuwarudo Rōtoreamon?)
Voiced by: Takaya Hashi (Anime) (Japanese); Barry Yandell (English)
The head of the Lautreamont family and the current ruler of the country, called The Paladin. He is a widower and a very cheerful man, who dotes on his children but is often scolded by Silvia, which he seems to enjoy (it reminds him of her late mother, Elizabeth.) He asks to meet Ash at the continental congress and grants Ash knighthood but warns him not to pursue a relationship with Silvia. The Paladin was unable to bear seeing his only son killed for the crime of murdering his Dragon, and banished Julius instead, without realizing the reasons behind his son's actions.
Veronica Lautreamont (ヴェロニカ・ロートレアモン Veronika Rōtoreamon?)
Voiced by: Aya Endo (Anime) (Japanese); Martha Harms (English)
First princess of the Lautreamont Family and the eldest of the four sisters. Nicknamed the Iron Blood Valkyrie, she always wears her armor, except while bathing or sleeping. Silvia is terrified of her due to the harsh training Veronica subjected her to when she was little. Although Veronica was not selected as a Breeder, she decided to train her body and hone her swordsmanship to compensate for the lack. Despite her harsh treatment of Silvia, she loves her sister dearly and, according to Julius, even has pictures of Silvia and a Silvia doll in her room. She apparently does not respect her father and wishes for Silvia to be the next Paladin, the country's ruler, telling her to "try to make me kneel before you".
Julius Lautreamont (ジュリアス・ロートレアモン Juriasu Rōtoreamon?)
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Anime) (Japanese); David Trosko (English)
The only son of the Lautreamont family. He was supposedly executed for the charge of slaughtering his own dragon, but was secretly spared and exiled by Oswald instead. The reason he killed his dragon was because he realized that his dragon, Mordred, was the reincarnation of an evil dragon and so he tried to kill it. Unfortunately, this caused Mordred's spirit to possess him, thus creating the persona of Milgauss. He was later freed when Mordred chose to possess Eco instead.
Cassandra Lautreamont (カサンドラ・ロートレアモン Kasandora Rōtoreamon?)
Second daughter of the Lautreamont family. She has gone missing.
Mirabel Lautreamont (ミラベル・ロートレアモン Miraberu Rōtoreamon?)
Third daughter of the Lautreamont family. She took the position as Ansarivan Dragon Riding Academy's principal after the previous principal retired. She has a cold but calm demeanor and is usually seen drinking tea even in the middle ceremonies or meetings. According to Silvia, she is a scholar who is studying and doing research abroad. She became Ansarivan's principal on Veronica's orders to watch over Eco but she admits that she came for another reason and that she does not care for Veronica's orders. According to Ash, she does not seem to respect Veronica at all, having referred to her eldest sister a "muscle freak".

Dragons[edit]

Navi (ナヴィー Navī?)
Voiced by: Yui Sakakibara (Drama CD/Anime) (Japanese); Monica Rial (English)
Navi is the overseer of the Dragon Workshop and has access to all of the knowledge of past dragons. She appears as an older version of Eco. She is later revealed to be the incarnation of the Dragweiss itself, the repository of all draconic knowledge. Once she matures, Eco will absorb Navi, thus gaining access to the full knowledge, wisdom, and power of the Dragonweis. By doing so, she will direct the future of the Dragon race. According to Navi, her current appearance is what Eco will look like when the latter grows up. Navi thinks it would be fine if Ash ended up marrying both Silvia and Eco.
Mordred (モルドレッド Morudoreddo?)
Voiced by: Takaya Kuroda (Anime) (Japanese); Chris Rager (English)
Mordred was the Dragon pal of Prince Julius Lautreamont. As his dragon grew older, Julius discovered that Mordred had a malevolent aspect to his personality, born from his ancestral memory as a descendent of the dark kingdom of Nehalennia, and that it was slowly taking him over. To that end, Mordred conspired with the Prince to kill himself, hoping that it would also kill his evil self.
Unfortunately, Mordred's evil self was able to escape the death of its body and possess Julius. When the Paladin spared Julius' life, he unwittingly allowed Mordred to survive as well. Mordred later tries to possess Eco in order to fully revive himself, but Navi resists his attack which allows Ash and Eco to defeat and forcefully expel him. His spirit flees and is last seen flying to the east. In the manga series Mordred is actually a female who looks like a Lolli girl.
Nuada (ヌァザ Nwaza?)
A Legendary Dragon, he was resurrected by Milgaus to fight Ash and his friends. According to his legend, he was the Pal of a sick girl. Believing his master was about to die, Nuada cut off his Astral Flow with her, the link that allows a dragon to absorb Astral (magical energy required by all things to survive, but no longer produced by extremely magical races like dragons and elves) from its rider, and left for the Willingham Mausoleum where he died alone not realizing his master had recovered.
Mother Dragon (マザー・ドラゴン Mazā Doragon?)
Voiced by: Fumi Hirano (Anime) (Japanese); Linda Leonard (English)
She is an unseen presence in the world. Despite being called the mother dragon, she claims that she is not actually the dragon's mother but merely a system which distributes Dragons to deserving Breeders. The Mother Dragon is a large and powerful dragon and unlike other dragons, she is able to survive without a partner. Only people with the ability to become breeders are able to see her and it is she who chooses who, and who will not, become Breeders during the Orphan Rite. She was created by a wise dragon in order to save their kind after an accident took away the ability of magical races (such as dragons and elves) to produce Astral, bringing the dragon race to the brink of extinction. Only recently has the Mother Dragon realized that she was dying. She created a dragon with a human form (Eco) in order that she have a child with a human and so save their race. Whether this is required to replace the Mother Dragon, or the child will be a dragon capable of producing astral, is unknown.
