|グランゴルド王 (Gurangorudo Ō)|
|Appears in:||Chapter 2 & 3|
The Grangold King is the current ruler of Grangold. He is a slothful character, having imprisoned the Queen Ant as well as enslaving her Ant Girls to do the Grangold Kingdom’s bidding, the Grangold King even left them to deal with governmental affairs. Luka is even informed by a guardsman that the King is always goofing off and ignoring his duties, and just likes listening to stories of travelers.
In Chapter 2, upon meeting him, Luka is impressed by his exuberance and kindness, but feels nothing like the powerful presence of the Sabasa King or the dignified air of the Grand Noah Queen, which makes him think he’s pretty unreliable. An Ant Girl interrupts the audience to give a report to the king, and Luka sees in first hand how he leaves all the government affairs to them.
However, the next day, after the Queen Ant breaks free of her imprisonment and the Ant Girls begin attacking the humans, the king leads his people, who are too scared and confused to react, in an escape, while Luka holds off the Ant Girls. After he escapes, Alice appears to the Grangold King and informs him that his ignorance caused this disaster and tells him to think what he has been doing to the monsters and what it means to him as a king, convincing him to take charge once and for all.
After Luka defeats the Queen Ant, Alice appears carrying the Grangold King, who offers to be the Queen’s slave in exchange for the freedom of his people. After the King explains how he now knows that monsters have the same feelings as humans, the Queen ends up believing in his words, and the two shake hands and promise to end everything.
After that, the Grangold King and Queen Ant start to work together in the repairs of the town, and although the king doesn’t have free time like before, he is a lot happier, as he finally starts to feel like a king.
