The Canaries (カナリア Kanaria?)[1] are a group of elves from the west whose mission it is to investigate and take control of dungeons that have surpassed a certain danger level.[2]

Organization[edit | edit source]

Each member of the Canaries hones their unique skills for the sole purpose of conquering dungeons.[3] The majority of the Canaries are criminals convicted of using ancient magic, with the rest being children of the nobility presented to their country as an act of loyalty, in a ratio of two criminals to one 'guard'. A notch cut into the ear is a mark of a criminal member of the Canaries.[4]

Captain Mithrun's Squad[edit | edit source]

This squad was dispatched to take control of the dungeon on the Island.[6]

Captain Mithrun (ミスルン隊長 Misurun-taichō?)[7] is a male elf. As implied by his title, he is the captain of the squad.

Main article: Mithrun

Cithis (シスヒス Shisuhisu?)[8] is a female elf. She appears to be second in command to Mithrun.[8] She has long pale hair and dark skin, and has a series of white marks on her forehead.[9] Like many of the other Canaries, she has a notch cut into both her ears,[10] indicating she is a criminal.[4] She typically wears a black choker, a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a corset-like item and skirt that look much like the collars that the other Canaries wear. She also wears some rings and bangles.[11] Her magic specialty is unknown, but she offers to 'burn' an enemy at one point,[7] and seems to use a tool that looks like a branch of lily of the valley flowers.[12]

Pattadol (パッタドル Pattadoru?)[8] is a female elf. She has pale shoulder-length hair with a straight fringe and bangs plaited around her head.She is the only member of the Canaries without any visible damage to her ears,[9] indicating she is of noble birth.[4] She typically wears a long sleeved tunic, a waist-length cloak and a pleated skirt, and a collar like most of the other Canaries.[13] She appears to have a long-haired fairy as a familiar[14] who acts as a paired communicator with another fairy between the Canaries.[15] She can transform her familiar into a magic staff to cast spells, including one that generates a physical barrier.[16] She seems to panic fairly easily.[13] She seems to be the most proper of the team, stopping the other elves from laughing at Mithrun's mistake[17] and reminding Cithis to keep her mind on the battle,[18] likely due to her sheltered noble upbringing.[4] She is also quite observant, noting Shuro and Namari's response when the chimerized Falin appears on the first floor.[19][18]

Otta (オッタ Otta?) is the smallest of the named elves. She has short hair and has a series of ringed markings on her arms and legs.[7] Like the other Canaries, she has notches cut into both his ears,[17] indicating her criminal status,[4] but unlike them she also wears piercings on her left ear (two on the lower lobe and one on the upper).[20] She typically wears a short tunic, sandals, and the same collar as the other Canaries.[21] She appears to be able to manipulate earth and stone to make platforms[7] and walls.[22]

Fleki (フレキ Fureki?)[23] has wavy, shoulder-length hair and messy bangs,[24] as well as notches in both ears like the other Canaries[24] indicating criminal status.[4] Fleki typically wears a short tunic with a belt and ankle boots, and the same high collar as the others, as well as a falconry glove.[21] Fleki has a familiar that takes the form of a shadow bird with a curly tail.[3][19]

Lysion (リシオン Rishion?)[25] has droopy eyes, long hair tied in two pigtails and tattoos on his upper torso, outlining his sternum, ribs and collarbone, as well as tattoos around his upper arms. Like many of the other Canaries he has notches cut into both his ears,[24] as a mark of his criminal status.[4] He typically wears a high collar and a cloth around his waist.[24] He appears to be able to turn into a canine beast[3] and is comfortable even in partial transformation.[26]

History[edit | edit source]

Prior to them becoming members of the Canaries, a majority of the members were criminals convicted of using ancient magic.[3][4]

Plot[edit | edit source]

On their arrival to The Island, the Canaries went to meet and talk with the Governor and Mr. Tance regarding taking over the dungeon. They had been talking for many hours when Kabru (and Shuro) suddenly burst into their meeting. While they initially did not appreciate his intrusion, they allowed him to make a report on the dungeon. When he mentioned that he came across a tall-man transformed into a monster, they were shocked and further motivated to take control of the dungeon. The Governor decided to give in, with one member of the Canaries pointing out where he needs to stamp the contract, and he tells them to do as they please. Before they could issue the order to come ashore, Kabru asked them to wait. As he told them about the destruction of Utaya, the village he grew up in, they recognized him as the survivor who their vice commander brought back and took care of. When he proposed they evacuate and seal off the dungeon to prevent the dungeon from being fed, they discussed it for a moment among themselves. The Captain of the Canaries agreed to go along with his plan, but on the condition that if anything happened he could send in his troops, which Kabru agreed to.[27]
