Tirol (adopted son)
Lakritz is a Water Demon who was first seen walking around openly and being friendly with the people of St. Curtis. He is the husband of an Earth Demonness, Sahne, as well the Wind Angel, Kinako; and along with her son, Tirol they make up a family.
Lakritz appears to be a reptilian-looking Demon (likely based off a salamander), with mostly black skin with blue markings and belly. He also has blue spikes on his back and tail (with one on his back and two on his tail resembling a dolphin's dorsal fin and tail). His eye color is red with no irises. He wears brown leather shorts and a black belt around his waist.
When first introduced, Lakritz appeared to be very friendly with non-Demons, evident when he stopped to greet a human who walked up to him. He is also good with Angels like Kinako as he is staying with her, Tirol and Sahne, an Earth Demonness, who are also in St. Curtis. As it would turn out, this stems from a much deeper relationship he, Kinako, Tirol and Sahne share. He considers himself, Sahne and Kinako to be in love with one another to where, along with Tirol, they are a very happy family and would do anything to protect each other. While not shown in-comic, various artwork involving them show they are just as prone to cuddling and kissing as Kieri and Buwaro.
Knowing fully-well about the habits of his kind and possibly every plan that his former comrades had at the time, he acknowledges the dangers brought on by Demons and was even suspicious of Buwaro when they first met. Whenever Kinako acknowledges him for something relating to his worries, he seems to frown, either out of guilt or discouragement since he and Sahne are Demons; especially since now that he was in a relationship with an Angel, their natural enemy, he would continually run the risk of being attacked by his own kind and nearly died as a result of it.
As a parent, Lakritz is very affectionate with his adopted son, Tirol. He will often play with him and compliment him whenever he draws a picture of him or any of his family. This contrasts the usual behavior of Demons who don't show this sort of behavior but because of the life he and his family lead, he and Sahne are free to be more open with their love than those who wish to behave to normal Demon standards.
Like many Demons, he seems to have a preference for meat, which he says he loves eating; while also saying he doesn't care for vegetables. However, he can be easily intimidated by his wives to eating them anyway if it means encouraging Tirol to eat them, much to his dismay.
Lakritz, along with Sahne, were once part of Hell's Army and at one point joined their many comrades in leaving Hell through the Ascension. However at some point they would betray their kind after falling in love with Kinako and forming a family with her and Tirol. It's unknown if at any point the two Angels were prisoners to him and Sahne given their mission at the time prior to this union.
Lakritz was first seen by Rhea, Kieri and Cliff, walking casually through town while greeting a human who stopped by him, giving them the impression that it's okay for Demons and Angels to walk among the other Medians during the Flower Festival. This action even confuses Tsavo as Demons sent for the gathering would normally be in hiding.
Lakritz joined Kinako and the others during an outing of the festival. They overhear Buwaro and Kieri singing in Angelic and go to greet them. Buwaro wasn't sure about who he was while Lakritz corrected him, introducing himself and saying this was their first time meeting. Lakritz noted that Demons who speak Angelic were especially dangerous while Kinako reassured him that they were their friends. She later told Buwaro about her Elemental Mark and that Lakritz recommended she wear something other than her usual clothing. He then advised Kieri to do the same as it might help her. Soon after he left with Sahne and the others.
Demon Invasion - The GatheringEdit
After Moonshade killed Melli the Fire Bee and seemingly drove off Meeros the Mortori Bird, the signal was given for all the Demons in the city to begin their operation. At that moment, Lakritz grabbed Tirol just as Sahne grabbed Kinako while their eyes glowed ominously.
While what followed is currently unknown, it is clear Lakritz had no intention on capturing Tirol, however after an attack by Demons he and Sahne lost Kinako, leaving Sahne with Tirol and Lakritz severely injured. When Rhea and her friends arrived where they were, Sahne believed they betrayed Kieri and was ready to attack them. However she stopped when Buwaro (tried) talking her out of it.
Sahne then explained what happened and was distraught that she may lose him too, but then Rhea decided to give Lakritz the vial of green potion she had to help him recover. With Lakritz healed, they show their love to the group and revealed that all three of them were in love and with Tirol they considered themselves a family. After Sahne explained about how they betrayed their own kind to be with Kinako, Buwaro urged them to try and fight to get her back, though Lakritz sadly noted that they're too injured to do so and have to protect Tirol. Before leaving they left Rhea and group with the whereabouts to where the Gathering would take place.
Sometime later, Jake and his animals regrouped with them while bringing a male Earth Angel with him. Thanks to Rhea and Buwaro's interference, the Angel's partner, a male Wind Angel, returned and received a kiss from him while Jake watched happily. Sahne told Lakritz she was starting to reconsider what she said earlier and wanted to go help them and Kinako, but didn't want to leave him or Tirol. Lakritz was surprised to hear Jake and the Angel couple willing to volunteer to stay with the two while she was out.
- According to Chu, Lakritz's name is based after a kind of licorice.
- "Lakritz" is actually the German word for licorice.
- Given his relationship with both Sahne and Kinako, they are considered a polyamory family by word of the creator.
- Lakritz's favorite food is revealed to be fish, according to a voting incentive that also had him eating sushi.
