16-year-old Anise Yamamoto has encountered her fate! As a young girl, her father had given her a rose choker, and he said that if she ever took the choker off, a punishment would befall on her. However one day, she loses her choker and she finds out the punishment... to be the Dominion of four rose knights.
Age: 16 years old
Position: Rose maiden, Dominion, Head Lord Knight
Fears: Thunder, fire, earthquakes and her father's wrath, should she take off the choker.
A cheerful character who always wore a rose choker which her father gave her. He told her that if she ever took it off, she would be punished. Anise was unable to take it off until it disappeared after Ninufa, a bat-like-creature, bowled her over. After Ninufa scurried away, Anise found that she was holding a Red card. She ignores the fact and runs after Ninufa to get her choker back when a monster attacks. Itsushi-sensei, the librarian, tells her that she must kiss the card she was holding. When she does so, a boy appears out of the card calling her "master". Anise becomes the Dominion, able to summon any of the four rose knights. However, whenever the knights use their power, they drain the life force from her blood. This causes Anise to believe that becoming the Dominion is her punishment for losing her choker. Although the choker she was wearing only brought Anise in the center of attention, for fear of her father's punishment she begins searching for it with the help of her Rose Knights.
