Operating under the direct control of Calegia's royal family, the King's Shield is separate from the Calegian army and serves solely to protect the royal family, as well as carry out direct orders from members of the royal family. Eugene Gallardo defines the King's Shield's purpose as using "their special abilities to aid the royal family by acting as bodyguards" and "carrying out special missions in secret". As the name implies, members of the King's Shield literally shield the royal family. Eugene also states that the King's Shield also subjugates Force users, making allies before they become enemies. The King's Shield has four head officers known as the Four Stars: Saleh, Tohma, Walto, and Militsa. Although the King's Shield is almost exclusively of the Gajuma race, Saleh is Huma, and Militsa is a Half. Around sixth months prior to the events of the story, Eugene was the commander of the King's Shield, with Mao being one of his subordinates, but an incident forced him to withdraw from his position and leave the King's Shield altogether.
Role in the Plot
At the beginning of the story, Agarte Lindblum, now considered Queen after the death of her father, King Ladras Lindblum, orders the King's Shield to retrieve beautiful Huma girls in all major cities of the kingdom. The Four Stars head this operation, frequently causing confusion and disorder in the cities they visit. This scheme is later revealed to be the result of Agarte's naivete under the manipulation of her adviser, Zilva Madigan, also part of the royal family, though this relation is never stated specifically. Members of the royal family possess the Force of Moon, which allows them to switch bodies with another person. Agarte loves the commander-in-chief of the Calegian national forces, Milhaust Selkirk, who fails to reciprocate her feelings due to the difference in their race, as he is Huma and she is Gajuma. Agarte feels that if she can switch bodies with a beautiful Huma girl, Milhaust may reciprocate her feelings. After Agarte's semi-unsuccessful attempt at doing so, Zilva usurps her position and begins commanding the King's Shield in her place.
