12. Don

Don is the eldest of all the children that resided in the Grace Field Orphanage and is very impulsive. Throughout the anime, we see him being cheerful and friendly with his family but things get dark and he loses his cool when he learns the truth about his orphanage. We see him swearing to save Conny when he was shipped out with a furious rage in his eyes. Talking about his intelligence, he always came in 5th place after Gilda and was considered one of the smartest children in the Grace Field Orphanage. When Emma and Ray were planning out their escape and Isabella had her eyes on them, Don secretly trained the children for the outside world that they had never seen. He improved their agility, strength, and stamina so that they could survive the harsh environment that was waiting for them outside. Our goofy little boy is not all talk!

10. Gilda

Gilda is one of the most mature children of Grace Field who’s always noticing what’s happening around. She doesn’t speak much and is a bit of an introvert. Though, she’s really good at house chores and taking care of the younger children of the orphanage along with Emma. She doesn’t open up which is why Emma thought that she must be a traitor working with Isabella to keep fooling the children. But we later find out that she was just worried about Emma (Awww SWEET!). She’s one of the top students of Grace Field after Emma and possesses the power of intuition. She’s able to realize that something is going on between Emma, Ray, and Norman before anyone else. Despite her docile and timid personality, she shows courage and concern for other children that were treated like cattle in the other farms. She’s now playing a very vital role in Emma’s wish for escaping the horrifying Demon World that devours innocent children.

10. Mujika

Mujika is probably the only Demon that’s not detestable and gross. She’s a different demon from the start who doesn’t eat human meat due to religious reasons (Yes, such demons exist!). She accompanies Sonju who’s also a demon like her. When Emma and her friends escaped Grace Field, they met Mujika and Sonu who treated them very kindly. At first, Emma had her suspicions about the two but soon they were able to trust each other. Mujika is a very kind-hearted and intelligent demon. At first, she wanted to return the children back to Grace Field but she threw away the idea and helped them instead. She taught basic survival skills to the children as well as taught them how to cook. She also informed Emma about the possible threats they’re going to face while traveling. Mujika cares deeply for Emma and the other children and is always ready to help them.

9. Sister Krone

Many of you would find Sister Krone to be a punchable character and it’s okay. We feel the same. She was a caretaker and a helper that was sent to Grace Field to help manage children along with Isabella. She had a voluptuous body and looked very intimidating to the children. We see her as a selfish woman who thinks about nothing but herself. Sister Krone was a smart woman. The only reason she decided to assist Isabella was to eventually get rid of her and secure her position as “Mama” for the children. She smartly gained the children’s trust by being super nice and kind to them in hopes of getting perfect for the position. But we see Isabella outwitting her and washing her plans away in an instant. She lost against Isabella but gave Emma, Norman, and Ray a tough time by constantly taking them and getting in the way of their escape.
